AMG Sport Is Dead, Models to Become Mercedes-AMGs  Jan 12th, 2016 
A few weeks ago, we were a bit surprised to learn that the AMG version of Mercedes’ new SLC-class roadster—it replaces the SLK-class—would be powered by the engine found in the AMG Sport models of the C- and GLE-classes, the C450 AMG and GLE450 AMG. (AMG Sport was launched to neatly split the difference between regular Mercedes vehicles […] 
 
 
First Half-Ton Nissan Titan Pickups Arrive This Summer  Jan 12th, 2016 
The roll-out of the redesigned Nissan Titan has been an unusual one. The truck launched solely as the semi-heavy duty XD, which is a tweener model that sits between a standard half-ton pickup and competitors’ heavy-duty models. And the XD itself had a strange ramp-up: It is currently available solely with a diesel engine; the […] 
 
 
Acura Precision Concept: A Bold Step for a Brand Teetering on Irrelevancy  Jan 12th, 2016 
Infusing its models that aren’t the $150k-plus Acura NSX with passion and personality is a work in progress at Acura, and the latest weapon in the brand’s war on ambiguity is the Precision concept. A sharply hewn four-door sedan that was developed at the maker’s California design studio in preparation for its debut at the […] 
 
 
Jeep Patriot/Compass Replacement to Bow in March  Jan 12th, 2016 
We’ll finally see the replacement for Jeep’s oldest models, the Compass and Patriot twins, at the New York auto show in March. Note that we said replacement—singular—as one model will supplant both of the current compacts. Jeep’s offering what is essentially the same vehicle as two differently styled models was sort of an accident of […]

2017 Audi Allroad Quattro: Don’t Call It a Wagon  Jan 12th, 2016 
Apollo 17 astronaut Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon, was the unlikely celebrity that Audi chose to help introduce its 2017 Allroad Quattro at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. What does the 81-year-old Cernan have to do with an all-wheel-drive luxury wagon for people who find Subarus too […]

2017 GMC Acadia Revealed: Smaller and Lighter than Before, Still Three Rows  Jan 12th, 2016 
The United States has always been a nation of the ever-bigger. Why buy a large when you can supersize your McMeal? Looking at a Ford F-150? Have you seen the Super Duty? And so it goes with most automakers’ redesigns for existing models. As soon as a vehicle is green-flagged for replacement, everyone from the […] 
 
 
2017 Lincoln Continental Photos and Info: The Flagship Has Come In  Jan 12th, 2016 
When the Lincoln Continental concept made its surprise debut at the New York auto show last spring, it wowed showgoers (with the notable exception of then Bentley design chief Luc Donckerwolke). Having dropped the bombshell concept with little advanced warning, Ford did not play coy with its intentions. The Continental, it said, was headed for […]

Blatant Motorwagen: Mercedes-AMG Announces S63 Cabriolet Edition 130  Jan 11th, 2016 
Six score and ten years ago, the Patent Motorwagen clattered to life. Karl Benz’s tricycle is often touted as the world’s first automobile, and nobody takes more pride in that possible distinction than Daimler. To celebrate 130 years of internal combustion powering forward motion, Mercedes-Benz has announced the Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC Cabriolet Edition 130. Which […]

Audi’s Latest Concept Previews Next-Gen A8’s Autonomous-Driving Tech  Jan 11th, 2016 
Traditionally outsold by the Mercedes-Benz S-class and the BMW 7-series, it seems Audi may counter slow sales of its A8 flagship by making the next generation of the car drive itself out of showrooms. Due on sale in Europe next year, the fourth-generation A8 will deliver Audi’s version of what it calls “Piloted Driving” technology […] 
 
 
Ericsson Shows Off Future 5G Wireless Using Remote-Controlled Volvo Excavator  Jan 11th, 2016 
You know those times when you walk past something, and you have to do a double take because you can’t possibly be seeing what you’re seeing? Strolling through the non-automotive section of the Consumer Electronics Show last week, we came across wireless provider Ericsson’s booth. Here we found what looked like the chair, foot pedals, and […]

Anyone Up for a Six-Way . . . Lease? Ford Announces New Lease-Sharing Program  Jan 11th, 2016 
Ford is getting into groups—group leases, that is. Anticipating “the potential for a shift from a single consumer paying for a single vehicle to several people sharing costs and benefits,” Ford announced a new pilot lease program “aimed at consumers who don’t need a vehicle full-time, but would like access to their own set of […] 
 
 
Of Gravity and Gravitas: The Lexus LC500 Coupe Arrives to Elevate the Brand  Jan 11th, 2016 
Although Lexus is careful to avoid using the “sports car” tag to describe the LC500, the car nevertheless is possessed of some very sports-car-like qualities: The engine sits behind the centerline of the front axle, the wheels are pushed out to the corners, the driver’s hip point was “engineered to be as close as possible […] 
 
 
2017 Honda Ridgeline: The Crossover of Pickups Returns with a FWD Version and a Bed Full of Tricks  Jan 11th, 2016 
After a brief, two-year hiatus—although we’re not sure many people noticed—Honda is taking another shot at the pickup segment, introducing its all-new, second-generation Ridgeline at the 2016 Detroit auto show. As did the previous Ridgeline when it was introduced way back in 2006, the new truck is closely related to the Pilot crossover and shares […] 
 
 
What Price M-Ness? BMW Announces Pricing of the 2016 M2 Coupe  Jan 11th, 2016 
BMW’s M cars seldom come cheap, but when the new 2016 M2 arrives in April at its just-released base price of $52,695, it will come cheaper than the rest. The M2, which was announced late last year and made its official debut at the 2016 Detroit auto show, undercuts the next-cheapest M car, the $64,495 […] 
 
 
Kia Telluride Concept: Fool’s Gold  Jan 11th, 2016 
The Kia Borrego came and went in one U.S. model year, 2009, saddled with a subpar interior and teeth-rattling suspension. It’s still sold in other markets as the Mohave, but Kia’s California design studio is looking ahead, and they’ve dreamed up the Telluride concept, the company’s second try at a full-size SUV.

Ford GT First Build! We Assemble and Review One of the First 2017 GT Supercars  Jan 11th, 2016 
Last year, Ford unequivocally won the Detroit auto show, shocking everyone with the new F-150 Raptor, the Mustang GT350R, and the new GT supercar. At the 2016 Detroit show, Ford’s stand is a little quieter—but then, how could an automaker follow up such an insane performance? Not all is lost in Ford’s corner of Cobo center […] 
 
 
Audi TT RS to Get New All-Aluminum Turbo Five-Cylinder, OLED Taillights  Jan 11th, 2016 
Throughout the late 1970s and the ’80s, Audi’s enthusiast reputation was largely shaped by its fantastic five-cylinder engines. Powerful, torquey, and possessed of an unmistakable sound, they were a unique and defining feature for the brand. In the ’90s, they made way for a generation of rather dull V-6 units, but a new five-banger was launched with the […] 
 
 
General Motors Encouraging People to Hack Its Cars  Jan 11th, 2016 
The increasing presence of connected tech in modern cars is forcing automakers to deal with problems they’ve never experienced before, like cybersecurity. This summer, car hacking came to the fore with a report in Wired about two cybersecurity researchers who managed to remotely hack a Jeep Cherokee. Now, GM is encouraging this sort of cybersecurity research. It […]

Tesla Autopilot Adds “Summon” Remote-Parking Ability, Restricts Autosteer Function  Jan 11th, 2016 
Can absolute autonomous cars corrupt absolutely? Tesla owners may have posted a few too many Autopilot videos for Elon Musk’s comfort, clips that show Model S sedans going out of control without a single finger on the wheel. Now, the fun’s (partially) over. Model S software version 7.1 fleshes out Musk’s tweet in October when he […]

Nissan Titan Warrior Concept: A Diesel Brute Ready for Off-Road Adventure  Jan 11th, 2016 
When Nissan unveiled its all-new Titan full-size pickup at the Detroit auto show last year, there were many who took one look at the new truck’s styling and diagnosed a case of Ford’s F-series envy. Whether or not that’s fair, Ford’s F-series has been America’s bestselling vehicle for what seems like forever, and it therefore […] 
 
 
Watts News: 2017 Chevrolet Bolt Powertrain Detailed  Jan 11th, 2016 
Because General Motors didn’t want people reading everything about the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt all in one shot, the car’s specs keep trickling in. This time, the Bolt’s powertrain is detailed. The lithium-ion battery pack has a capacity of 60 kWh (or what the now-discontinued Tesla Model S 60 had for nearly double the price). The […] 
 
 
Audi h-tron Quattro Concept: “H” Is for Hydrogen  Jan 11th, 2016

2017 Infiniti Q60: Infiniti Gets Serious About the Sports Coupe Again  Jan 11th, 2016 
Infiniti stumbled out of the gate, as the launch of the original Q45 in the 1980s was marred by an ad campaign featuring images of rocks and trees instead of actual automobiles, and the brand didn’t really begin to develop a proper sense of itself until the Nissan Skyline–derived G35 arrived as a 2003 model.

Nissan Unimpressed with Tesla’s Autonomy Promises, Still Confident in China  Jan 11th, 2016 
Elon Musk’s remarkable talent for generating publicity means that the Tesla boss doesn’t even need to be in Detroit for the auto show to be set the agenda here. More specifically, he’s been able to get other people to make headlines for him, with Nissan’s CEO Carlos Ghosn responding to the Tesla boss’s claim his company […]

Elon Musk Says In Two Years a Tesla Could ‘Summon’ Itself Cross-Country  Jan 11th, 2016 
  With version 7.1 of its software, Tesla Motors rolled out a feature Saturday that lets Autopilot-equipped cars semi-autonomously “Summon” themselves from your garage to your driveway. Tesla CEO Elon Musk thinks that in two years, it’s possible a Tesla could summon itself across the country. Elon Musk made this prediction, which he said might […]

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Debuts: Meet the New Town & Country  Jan 11th, 2016 
Here it is: the all-new 2017 Chrysler Town & Country! Except it isn’t called the Town & Country—it’s now the Pacifica. Chrysler says it wants this vehicle to dramatically shift how people think about minivans, and the company no doubt felt that Town & Country was synonymous with mom jeans and regurgitated Cheerios.

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-class: All In the Family  Jan 11th, 2016 
Every brand has its darling. For BMW, it’s the 3-series. At Honda, it’s the Accord. And for Mercedes-Benz, it is the E-class, the popular and prolific mid-size luxury car that’s been buttering the bread in Stuttgart for nine vehicle generations, soon to be 10. But despite its crucial position in the product range, the E-class […] 
 
 
2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew: Bigger Cab, Same Attitude  Jan 11th, 2016 
In the modern automotive idiom, few names stir up as much enthusiasm—and testosterone—as “Raptor.” Indeed, the moniker of Ford’s brawny, F-150–based off-road sensation ranks right up there with Hellcat, GT350, GT3, and GT-R for many enthusiasts, and it tops all of those among folks with a taste for suspension travel and heading off the beaten […]

In somewhat unsurprising news, we have learned that BMW will continue to expand its lineup of plug-in hybrids to include the next-generation 5-series sedan. While the current model is available with a hybrid powertrain centered around the company’s inline six-cylinder engine, the next one will team its electric components with a four-cylinder engine and a large battery […]

Boom! We Look Back at 2015 U.S. Auto Sales, the Best Year Ever  Jan 8th, 2016 
America, you did it. You put 2015 into the record books by buying the most new cars and trucks ever in a single year—more than any year since the automobile was invented.

There’s an App for That: At CES, the Self-Installing Car Seat  Jan 8th, 2016 
Amidst a sea of app-assisted everything at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, one connected device stood out as truly useful for drivers—at least those with kids. The 4moms Self-Installing Car Seat aims to take some of the guesswork out of the often-frustrating installation. That’s a big deal because as many as four out of five […]

That is not the 2016 Audi A4 pictured above, or the 2013 or even the 2009. Nope, this is an all-new 2017 A4 with all-new, higher prices. For better or worse, Audi design doesn’t change much from one generation to the next, except the 2017 A4 is even better to drive and brimming with useful, highly sophisticated […]

In between fantastical distractions at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show like Faraday Future’s 1000-hp electric concept and car–drone integrations sat a very real auto-industry awakening to the massive show’s importance. Automakers have for years attended CES, one of the most-attended trade shows in the country, but 2016 marks the first year every attending automaker treated the event as a […]

The past few years have seen multiple updates to VW’s in-car infotainment displays, and at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, the automaker debuted still another iteration of its dashboard display. This one has a new menu layout, limited gesture-control capability, and a hyperquick USB connection for external devices. Unlike many CES debuts, VW’s new system is […]

VW Could Buy Back 100,000-Plus TDI Diesel Vehicles in U.S.  Jan 7th, 2016 
Volkswagen may have to buy back some 115,000 cars in the U.S. as it attempts to placate the federal government over its diesel-emissions scandal. The German newspaper Süddeutschen Zeitung, first translated by Reuters, cited unknown sources saying VW would buy back one-fifth of the roughly 580,000 cars affected, which include Audi and Porsche models. Presumably, […]

Kia Shoots Us In the Face Demonstrating Autonomous Soul EV’s Capabilities  Jan 7th, 2016 
Among the more bizarre displays we found in various automakers’ booths at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show were autonomous-driving simulators. After all, what’s there to simulate? In both real life and the re-creation, the “driver” merely sits there while stuff happens. Which is why we have to tip our hat to Kia for its jarring […] 
 
 
Nissan’s Autonomous Plan: 10 New Cars With Self-Driving Tech by 2020  Jan 7th, 2016 
Very few cars under $30,000 have a full complement of automated driver assists, and even fewer offer semi-autonomous driving.

Upon entry to the ultraluxe stratosphere, appearances and history become all. It’s how Bentley and Rolls-Royce soldier on year after year, building cars that are fundamentally more than a decade old. The attraction lies in the exclusivity, the Best-of-Britain allure, and arcane details about the sourcing of materials; upholstery-destined cattle raised in areas with no barbed […]

Faraday Future Teased Its First Production Sedan/Crossover/Thing, and Few People Noticed  Jan 7th, 2016 
Four electric motors and more than 1000 horsepower: The slightly juvenile FFZERO1 supercar concept from startup company Faraday Future certainly delivers plenty of wow factor. Indeed, the FFZERO1 is one of the main attractions of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but it’s just a flashy exercise in “look at me!” The brand is planning to launch more-conventional […]

Poking and Prodding Audi’s Haptic Touchscreen and Digital Dashboard at CES  Jan 7th, 2016 
Bosch wasn’t the only automotive company at CES to debut a haptic touchscreen—the kind that registers inputs with a physical sensation like a vibration—Audi also brought one along. Two, in fact. Incorporated into a conceptual, forward-looking car-interior buck mimicking the e-tron Quattro concept‘s cabin, the display had three colossal screens; only the digital gauge cluster goes […]

2017 Chevrolet Bolt Debuts: Will It Go to the Head of the EV Class?  Jan 7th, 2016 
In a couple of years, Chevrolet may well be chopping big dollars off the sticker of its new Bolt EV and sweetening lease deals like so much southern iced tea.

Back in April, Aston Martin signed a memorandum of understanding with Chinese media conglomerate LeTV for the co-development of electric vehicles.

CES Fatigue: Juckenwood and the McLaren 675LT  Jan 6th, 2016 
There’s an awful lot of polarization in the world these days.

75th Anniversary Jeep Models Suit Up in Green and Bronze  Jan 6th, 2016 
While a 75th anniversary is generally called a diamond anniversary, things are a little different for Jeep, which reaches that milestone this year.

We Try Bosch’s Haptic-Feedback Touch Screen, Are Touched By Its Effectiveness  Jan 6th, 2016 
Haptic-feedback touchscreens, essentially displays that affirm inputs with sensory feedback, have been around for years.
