First details for the Porsche Macan 2019

0

Porsche unveiled the refreshed 2019 Macan at the end of July and assembly began in late August. While we know one is on way, the company isn’t showing off the Macan Turbo yet, but these spy shots provide a great look at the higher performance, upcoming model. This one is even hauling a little trailer, proving that the company’s smaller crossover can tow at least small amounts of weight. Compared to the standard Macan, the Turbo features a completely different front fascia (see comparison below). The turn signals move to the top, just below the headlights, rather than being near the lower portion of the grille.

Mitsubishi Outlander 2019 Review

0

Despite the ‘sometimes boring’ barbs that get sent its way, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander LS keeps punching well above its perceived weight in the medium-SUV segment. Spend any time behind the wheel of one, and the reasons for its popularity become pretty clear too. Mitsubishi has, in recent times, become something of an SUV specialist. ASX, Outlander, Pajero Sport, Pajero, Triton, and most recently the Eclipse Cross have joined the range of cars that used to include a whole lot more traditional non-SUV variants than it does now. Given the way the buying public is moving, the SUV focus might just be the smartest move the company has ever made.

Hyundai Genesis 2019 G70 Review, Ratings

0

If imitation is the sincerest flattery, then established luxury brands must be blushing over the new Genesis G70. The rookie sport sedan from Hyundai’s luxury division cribs shamelessly from the veterans: Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar. Yet if you’re going to steal, Genesis seems to be saying, at least steal the best parts from the best. That includes not just G70 design tropes—including what appears a precise replica of Audi’s knurled-aluminum, steering-wheel-mounted scroll wheels—but the pilfering of top talent. Readers who follow the industry may be aware of Hyundai and Kia’s busy HR department, whose recent coups include Albert Biermann, the former chief engineer of BMW’s storied M Division, and Luc Donckerwolke, the former Bentley, Lamborghini designer tapped to lead the Genesis.

Honda Ridgeline 2019 – All-Purpose Pickup Truck

0

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck exists under the bell curve. It’s meant for typical uses rather than edge-case scenarios: home improvement store runs, small toy hauling, and daily detail. It’s built on a crossover platform, does all the “truck stuff” well enough for most people but retains a smooth ride and comfortable interior. With a few small updates, the 2019 Ridgeline is a carryover from the year before. After a 2-year hiatus, the second-generation Ridgeline was released in 2017 and has remained largely unchanged since. Offered in front- or all-wheel drive, all Ridgeline models are powered by Honda’s 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic.

Honda CR-V 2019 Review – Ratings, Specs, Prices and Photos

0

Although it seems hard to remember a time when there wasn’t a Honda CR-V, the nameplate has only been with us since 1997. That means compared to the likes of the Civic and Accord, the CR-V is still something of a relative newcomer. Even so, the CR-V is one of the top-selling SUVs on the market, so here’s what you can expect from the very latest 2019 Honda CR-V. The 2019 Honda CR-V is as ubiquitous as it is useful. The roomy five-seat crossover offers a versatile shape and innovative tech—inside and out, and impressive crash-test scores and excellent fuel economy. It’s not particularly stylish or fun to drive, but our overall score of 6.0 reflects that and its superlative value. Even as competitors have inched closer, the CR-V remains highly competitive three years into the current model’s design cycle.

Dodge Challenger 2019 Pricing, Features, Ratings and Reviews

0

Dodge manages to find new ways to breathe life into the aging Challenger platform. The Challenger we know today debuted in 2008 as a 2009 model, and little has changed since. Over the years, Dodge continued to refine the coupe’s styling and demeanor, continuously increasing performance. Nearly a decade after its introduction, Dodge continues to improve the Challenger. Last year, Dodge unveiled the Demon – an 840-horsepower road car designed for the drag strip. Now, Dodge blends the best Hellcat and Demon in the Hellcat Redeye, which is now rolling off the assembly line at FCA’s Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada.

0

After a 2018 redesign, the 2019 Honda Accord will likely receive minimal updates for the 2019 model year.

Ford Explorer 2019 Reviews and Rating

0

The 2019 Ford Explorer tackles family life well. The popular Explorer makes its way onto just about every three-row crossover SUV shopping list, and with good reason. It’s roomy, rides well, and offers some standout features. Yet the 2019 Explorer’s basic design is showing its age, now nearly a decade into its life cycle. A new model is on the horizon. For 2019, the Explorer lineup gains a few new trim packages, active safety tech is more widely available, and a power tailgate is newly standard on the popular XLT trim level. The Explorer is available in base, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum trim levels.

Ford F150 2019 Pricing, Features, Ratings and Reviews

0

The 2019 Ford F-150 hangs on to its best-selling truck title with a bevy of powertrains, thousands of build possibilities, and a seemingly endless reserve of truck bona fides. The 2019 Ford F-150 proves that the title of “best-selling” doesn’t have to mean “sellout.” The F-150 makes few compromises on its way to excellent towing, comfort, and safety; it’s the best among full-size trucks in those regards. It didn’t choose the luxury-wagon life, but in King Ranch and Limited trim, it pulls it off convincingly. Back with only minor changes for the new model year, the 2019 Ford F-150 sells in XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim.

Ford Escape 2019 – Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices and Photos

0

The 2019 Ford Escape lives in a household full of bro-dozers and brute-utes, and somehow it thrives. The sleek, hatchback-ish crossover sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year, and we think we know why. Sold in S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trim, the 2019 Escape can and wants to be driven like a hot hatch, so long as you order the frothy engine, not the frugal one. We rate the 2019 Ford Escape at 5.7 out of 10, slightly above average despite some concerns with a crash-test score. Still taut and sleek from the outside, the Escape drops all SUV pretense with its fast roofline and lower ride height. Pert and handsome years from its introduction, the Escape’s cockpit hasn’t fared so well. The undulating shape cuts into passenger space and looks dated. Time for another run by edit.
