Shell and Airflow create Starship 18-wheeler to further shake up the segment

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 13:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) We need to add another high-tech 18-wheeler entry to the growing list of players at the table: Shell collaborated with AirFlow Truck Company the truck you see above, dubbed Starship. The tractor-trailer combo isn't the wildest rival in the bunch, but it features the best of current technology aided by a host of major and minor tweaks from stem to stern. Shell considers the the Class 8 Truck equivalent of the Project M T25 city car it worked on with legendary English designer Gordon Murray.

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 15:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Just last month, we learned that the new all-electric BMW iX3 crossover would debut soon at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. On Friday, BMW finally revealed a short teaser video on Twitter, showing off a new take on the company's iconic grille design. Though next week's car may simply be a concept, it's the first we've seen of the German automaker's answer to the Jaguar i-Pace and upcoming Audi E-Tron.

Buick Enspire EV crossover concept claims 370 miles of range

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 15:59:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) For the Beijing Auto Show, Buick is showing yet another crossover, this one in concept form. It's called the Buick Enspire, and unlike the rest of the brand's crossovers, this one is all electric. It's more than just a repurposed Bolt EV, too. Instead of the Bolt's 150 kW and 200-horsepower motor, the Buick has a 410 kW motor, which equates to 550 horsepower. Buick claims the motor will get the crossover to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 09:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,

(image) Mercedes-Maybach builds some of the most kitted out and opulent production cars in the world. Think of the Maybach S 560 and S 650 as a Mercedes S-Class taken to the next level. Today, Mercedes-Maybach revealed a new teaser for what looks like a concept for a new EV. The car is set to debut in just a few weeks at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. This might be the Maybach SUV we reported on a few weeks back.

2019 Genesis Essentia Concept | Insights on an elegant design

Fri, 06 Apr 2018 17:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) One of the biggest stunners of the New York Auto Show came from an unlikely stand — that of Genesis, Hyundai's nascent luxury spinoff. The Genesis Essentia Concept was described as a multi-motor EV with a 0-60 time of 3 seconds and enough silicon to pass the Turing test, but that's not what made it special. It stood out because it's downright gorgeous, a proper show car seemingly plucked from the golden age of pre-OPEC oil embargo dream machines.

We test the latest Easter Jeep Safari off roaders in Moab

Sat, 31 Mar 2018 11:30:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,,

(image) The Easter Jeep Safari began as a play for tourism: in 1967 the Moab Chamber of Commerce invited "the Jeeping community" to ride a single trail on the Saturday before Easter. The attendees were mostly members and friends of the Chamber of Commerce. Now, 52 years later, the nine-day Safari takes place on more than 40 trails and lures thousands of Jeepers, who put on one of the biggest and best modified Jeep shows in the world.

VW Atlas Tanoak: Would it make sense to build it?

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 10:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) Perhaps the biggest surprise of the New York Auto Show was the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak pickup truck. And one of the things that make the Tanoak so intriguing is how it seems pretty feasible to bring to market. It's based on the Atlas, which already has powertrains certified for emissions in America, and at least the front half wouldn't likely need much, if any work to make sure it passes U.S. safety standards. And like the Atlas, it uses the MQB modular platform found in everything from the afor

Genesis Essentia Concept embraces electric performance

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 16:20:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,

(image) Startup and established automakers alike have been waking up to — and embracing — the idea that electrification doesn't have to be just about efficiency. There's a huge performance potential for electric vehicles, a fact that Tesla has capitalized on, and other brands are following suit. Korean luxury car manufacturer Genesis is the latest to join the party with the unveiling of its Essentia grand touring EV concept at the New York Auto Show.

VW pickup is real: Atlas picks up a truck bed and the name Tanoak

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:30:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) The rumor was true. Volkswagen did indeed create a pickup truck based on the Atlas for this year's New York Auto Show. In keeping with Volkswagen tradition, it even has a name that looks weird and isn't straightforward to say "Tanoak." We'd say that's weirder than Tiguan, but not quite to Touareg levels.

Giugiaro is still designing fresh concepts in his 80th year

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) The concept's specification sheet lists 400 Kw of power via four 100-Kw electric motors, a 280-mile range and a 4.5-second 0-62-mph time, but there's no production talk for this car.

(image) It's Easter time, and that means it's time for the 52nd Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, held March 24 through April 1, where thousands of off-roaders crawl, scrape and scramble over the rugged trails of Moab, Utah. And that brings us to this year's colorful collection of Jeep concepts, custom-built by FCA for the occasion.

Aston Martin's electric Lagonda lineup to open with a crossover

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

(image) At the time of the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin announced it would be re-awakening the storied Lagonda brand to manufacture zero-emission luxury cars. The timeline for these was cast to 2023 at first, but now information has come to light that Lagonda would start selling cars two years earlier, with — you guessed it — an SUV.

Lincoln Aviator to return as a concept in New York

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 18:09:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) The keen Canadian eyes at Autoguide spotted on Lincoln Canada's Twitter feed that the Lincoln Aviator will be resurrected at the 2018 New York Auto Show in two weeks, albeit in concept car form. Given that today's Continental and Navigator were previewed with thinly veiled concepts, it's therefore safe to assume that we'll eventually see a production Aviator.

Here's our first look at the 2020 Ford Bronco, and we like it

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 15:28:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) When a new, 2020 Ford Bronco was announced, there wasn't much information beyond that to go on. Of course, Ford had produced a wild Bronco concept in 2004 (below), a very boxy vehicle that struck a nerve with those that missed the last full-size Bronco Ford sold. That was discontinued less than a decade before that concept hit the show scene. But it appeared to have little influence on future product, and until the 2017 Detroit Auto Show's reveal of the Bronco logo and launch date, it was safe t
