Crossover With Two Names Grows Pricier In Mid-year Update

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 16:37:08 +0000

The Nissan Rogue Sport, introduced partway into the 2017 model year, carries the Qashqai moniker north of the border, and for some reason I’ve taken to saying its name with an invisible exclamation mark. It’s like saying Seattle! — it just seems appropriate. In a bid to boost the sub-Rogue’s safety, Nissan has unveiled a mid-year update […]

By the end of the year, you’ll know whether your next front-drive, non-supercar Ford might contain a carbon fiber cradle for its engine.

Now, About Ford’s Upcoming F-150 Diesel…

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 21:13:46 +0000

Ford was all but gloating… okay, it was gloating when it unveiled the coveted “30 mpg highway” figure for the upcoming 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V6 earlier this week. A full-size pickup with a 30 mpg rating? That sets it apart from all others, including the 27 mpg (highway) Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. What the automaker […]

Remember that Santa Cruz Concept pickup that miraculously appeared at the 2015 North American International Auto Show? Well, according to Hyundai, it’s still earmarked for future production, but the brand has really dragged its feet on its development.

Mercedes-Maybach Premieres Ultimate Luxury SUV With Perplexing Three-box Design

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 19:15:39 +0000

Mercedes-Maybach gently teased its new “Ultimate Luxury” concept before its official debut at the Beijing Motor Show, but one outlet’s itchy trigger finger resulted in every official image of it being sprayed all over the internet prematurely. The vehicle, dubbed the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury, is incredibly difficult to summarize. While it’s considered a sport utility […]

2018 Jeep Wrangler Capable Off-Road; In Other News, Water Wet

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 17:26:06 +0000

Jeep really loves touting its off-road heritage, along with the capability of its current stable of SUVs. To that end, FCA invited Chicago-area automotive media out to play in the mud at an off-road park in central Illinois. The very same off-road park in which I stuffed a Ford Raptor into the mud, multiple times. […]

Wells Fargo is getting slammed with all kinds of penalties over shady business practices.

As April 20th dawns without a wage deal with its workforce, General Motors’ troubled Korean division could be well down the road to bankruptcy.

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 13:00:43 +0000

General Motors’ Cadillac division started the week with one president, but ended it with another. In dropping former brand chief John de Nysschen, GM either rid itself of an executive who, as Lee Iacocca would put it, wasn’t cutting the mustard, or revealed itself as an impatient and overbearing automaker that held unrealistic expectations for […]

When 300 Means 2.0: Jaguar’s Smallest Sedan Lands New Trim

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 22:12:28 +0000

In today’s automotive naming culture, “300 Sport” cannot possible mean there’s a 3.0-liter engine under the hood. Too obvious. No, much like the Mercedes-Benz C300, the 2019 Jaguar XE 300 Sport will not budge above two liters of displacement. It will, however, budge well above the priciest 2.0-liter XE’s MSRP. Luckily, you’ll probably never need […]

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 20:30:42 +0000

Controversial decisions that ruffled the feathers of dealers and brand faithful alike defined the Johan de Nysschen era at Cadillac. Project Pinnacle left the brand’s dealers in revolt, forcing changes and delays in the streamlining, brand-boosting strategy.

Polestar 1 Performance Hybrid Finishes Winter Testing, Heads Southeast for Chinese Debut

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 19:36:57 +0000

Polestar is building the cars Volvo can’t rationalize for its core demographic — high-powered electrics not intended for the general populace. While the brand has tweaked its Swedish autos in the past, Geely’s acquisition of Volvo Cars has seen Polestar evolve into a standalone division with its own unique performance lineup. But its stables are […]

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 18:01:14 +0000

Really, what else could Hyundai do? Hybrids aren’t the sole domain of traditional sedans anymore, let alone cars in general, and with green competition on the rise, something needed to be done to sweeten the pot. The 2018 Sonata Hybrid, arriving roughly a half year after the mid-2017 debut of the refreshed 2018 gas-only model, […]

General Motors is updating its on-board digital marketplace to allow customers to purchase fuel without ever having to leave the vehicle. You’ll still have to leave the confines of the vehicle to actually pump the gas, unless you live in New Jersey, but the exchange of money is handled entirely by the world’s first “in-dash […]

China Plans to Open Car Market By 2022

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 21:00:29 +0000

After weeks of unpleasant trade talk and posturing between Washington and Beijing, China’s lead economic planner announced the country would be easing limits on foreign ownership of automotive ventures. While an official metric was not posted, it will be less than the current 50-percent cap non-Chinese automakers have been limited to since 1994. But, for […]

This will be our third Sedan Showdown in a row. Kicking us off were some basic full-size models, and through the “Not nice enough!” complaints, the Charger took home the win.

Lexus ES Sporting Modish Metal for Seventh Generation

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 18:00:48 +0000

The next-generation Lexus ES will debut at the Beijing auto show this month, which is fitting. China knows luxury and appears to be preserving high-end sedans while Americans continue to turn their backs on them in droves. Domestic sales of the ES have reflected that. But Lexus is launching a sleeker, sexier, and more curvaceous […]

Movin’ Out – Johan de Nysschen Leaves Cadillac Immediately [UPDATE]

There’s a Billy Joel lyric about trading a Chevy for a Cadillac. That same song talks about movin’ up and movin’ out.

No, there’s no Denali Light model in the works, but there will be a new choice for buyers seeking a low-end GMC Yukon or Yukon XL.

In the halcyon days of NASCAR, men drove coupified versions of machines one could actually buy on the showroom floor: rear-drive Thunderbirds, Grand Prix coupes, and Monte Carlos simultaneously plied both racetracks and dealer lots as recently as the 1980s.

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 15:00:53 +0000

For a long time BMW was being accused of losing its touch when it came to building the “ultimate driving machine.” People would gripe that the company’s tech was overshadowing driving enjoyment. That may be true to some degree but you could usually point them to the M division and tell them not to worry. […]

Ford has dropped a teaser image for its 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, which is set to challenge the Dodge Demon for drag-strip supremacy.

Global Rallycross (GRC) may be the perfect distillation of motorsport for those with a limited attention span.
