Tue, 24 Apr 2018 16:44:19 +0000

The Society of Automotive Engineers’ annual World Congress—WCX18 in abbrev-speak—aims to be the SXSW of the car-biz’s nerd-illuminati. “Better mousetraps” for accomplishing nearly anything mechanical or electronic onboard a vehicle are displayed every year.

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 16:00:56 +0000

Audi has released a few teasers on what it calls a combination between a luxury coupe and a sporty SUV. Based on what we know of Audi’s upcoming products, we think it has to be the Q8.

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 08:00:52 +0000

Earlier this month, Mercedes began releasing teasers for a concept we believed was a Maybach SUV. With the Bentley Bentayga already on the road and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan just around the corner, it made sense that Mercedes would build a Maybach version. Past reports suggested it would be based on the next-generation GLS, and concepts such as […]

2018 Cadillac CT6 Super Cruise: Can the Car Really Drive Itself?

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 08:00:04 +0000

We live and breathe car performance metrics like horsepower, lb-ft, zero-to-60 and lateral g’s. Terms such as kilowatt-hours—how much energy batteries can hold—is being added to the list as more electric vehicles are hitting the road. Now, with semi-autonomous cars starting to arrive, there’s a weird-sounding acronym we’ll need to know – FLOPS. FLOPS? No, […]

Ford Doesn’t Want the Transmission it Planned to Borrow From GM

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 23:00:11 +0000

Several years ago, we reported that Ford and General Motors had agreed to work together on a pair of next-generation transmissions. GM was tasked with developing a nine-speed automatic for front-wheel-drive vehicles while Ford worked on a 10-speed for rear-drive applications. In theory, they’d be able to use the other’s transmission and each save money. In reality, […]

Next-Gen Ford Focus ST May Only Offer a Manual Transmission

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 21:00:39 +0000

The Ford Focus ST isn’t the newest or most refined hot hatch you can buy, but it’s still quick and fun to drive. And despite its relatively affordable $26,045 base price, it’s only available to a relatively small group of drivers in the U.S. That’s because the Focus ST is only available with a stick. From the sound […]
