Kia Carnival Sails to the U.S. this Summer

The Kia Carnival will arrive on our shores sometime this summer as a 2022 model, according to a story this morning from Autoblog. As we posted back in June, Kia is positioning it as a grand utility vehicle (GUV), lest you think it’s merely another minivan. How or why a stigma is attached to minivans […] The post Kia Carnival Sails to the U.S. this Summer appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Ford Bronco Two-Door and Four-Door: Forward to the Past

Eventually, the absence of a body-on-frame, go-anywhere, dedicated off-road SUV was too great for the Ford lineup to bear — which is why, after a quarter-century absence, the Bronco triumphantly returns to do battle with its Mopar foe, the Jeep Wrangler. Talked about endlessly since Ford announced the storied model’s return and leaked as often […] The post 2021 Ford Bronco Two-Door and Four-Door: Forward to the Past appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Style King Bentley Bentayga Goes In for a Facelift

If you detected a whiff of sarcasm in that headline, your nose wasn’t off. Yes, style and beauty is entirely subjective, but the range-topping Bentley Bentayga has never found itself at the top of any writer’s sexiest-dressed list. And that’s okay! It’s big, it’s bold, and it sells, so Bentley naturally loves anything that generates […] The post Style King Bentley Bentayga Goes In for a Facelift appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Face Time: 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Drops the Towel

It seems potentially controversial front end treatments are today’s theme. After teasing its upcoming Santa Fe last week, Hyundai let it all out on Tuesday, debuting a wildly different fascia with which to temp buyers on the hunt for an “ultimate family adventure vehicle.” If you’re not up on your corporate marketing-speak, that’s how Hyundai […] The post Face Time: 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Drops the Towel appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

See Anything You Like? Next-generation Lexus IS Looms

I must make a confession. Of all the vehicles on the market today — a diverse crowd if there ever was one — no car’s rear end annoys me more than that of the Lexus IS. The brand’s sporty compact offering went in a controversial direction for its third generation, entering the 2014 model year […] The post See Anything You Like?

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe: Refresh Time Already

Hyundai apparently feels that boasting the freshest faces in the industry will help it woo the American buying public. With a full stable of crossovers now realized, it’s not a terrible strategy. Just two model years after its debut, the midsize Santa Fe crossover (which replaced the Santa Fe Sport and necessitated a name change […] The post 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe: Refresh Time Already appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Genesis G80: Going Streakin’

Lexus has the spindle grille, BMW has kidneys, and Genesis now has twin horizontal streaks as its signature styling cue. Front and back and even on the sides, illuminated parallel lines are the next-generation G80 sedan’s defining design flourish. Revealed late Wednesday on Instagram (a coronavirus-free but still virulent venue), the upcoming midsize sedan looks […] The post 2021 Genesis G80: Going Streakin’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Subtle, Germanic Change: Refreshed Volkswagen Atlas Lands in Chicago

It’s no secret the Atlas is a massive sales and revenue driver for Volkswagen of America, yet time marches on. The model entered production in Chattanooga in 2017 after a debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show, meaning the midsize crossover is ripe for a mild makeover. With the model’s two-row Cross Sport sibling arriving […] The post Subtle, Germanic Change: Refreshed Volkswagen Atlas Lands in Chicago appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox: Taking After Big Brother

Maybe Corey’s grandmother should have waited. As the Chicago Auto Show kicks off in the Windy City, General Motors unveiled a mid-cycle refresh of one of the most popular compact crossovers on the market. For 2021, Chevrolet’s Equinox cosies up a little closer to its big brother, the Blazer, adopting a meaner-looking face and offering, […] The post 2021 Chevrolet Equinox: Taking After Big Brother appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Yikes! 2021 Cadillac Escalade Leaks

No, it doesn’t take on water, though we won’t really know for sure until a thorough on- and off-road evaluation puts that assertion to the test. Rather, the headline refers to images of the upcoming Cadillac range-topper that appeared on Instagram Wednesday.

2021 Kia Optima: Look Over Here, Please

A decade — isn’t that hard to believe? — after the debut of the radically styled third-generation Kia Optima, the automaker has another salvo waiting to launch against midsize boredom.

Tireside Chat: Talking Design With Nissan

Designing cars is a mix of art and science – and it’s about more than just looks. Especially when the brand you work for has a lot on its plate.

EU to Require Speed-Limiting Tech in New Cars

Aimed at saving lives and preparing the general public for fully autonomous vehicles, the EU is en route to pass a measure that requires all new cars to be outfitted with speed-limiting features. According to a new study, the proposal will save around 25,000 lives and prevent 140,000 serious injuries. It won’t go into full effect until 2022, but the forthcoming years will be formative …

2019 BMW 7 Series Partially Revealed Via Russian Leak

A Russian BMW fan seems to have leaked the new face of the 2019 7 Series on social media over the weekend. While we’d advise any news involving Russia be taken with a grain of salt, it certainly looks like this could be documentation of the sedan’s upcoming facelift.

Spied: 2020 Ram HD, Your Conservative Alternative to GM Design Experiments

The Ford Super Duty line grew fairly grotesque in its latest iteration, and yesterday’s reveal of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD turned some people’s hair white with fright. I’ll admit the Chevy’s design works (looks better than the Silverado 1500, IMHO), but it’s jarring nonetheless.

2019 BMW X7: Put Your Best Face Forward

It’s finally here and it’s, um, polarizing. BMW’s largest utility vehicle, the X7, uses the brand’s versatile CLAR platform as a starting point for the most controversially styled Bimmer since Chris Bangle left the building. Arriving at dealers in March, the X7’s derrière is not, nor ever will be, the main source of viewer displeasure.

As New ES Looms, Lexus Isn’t Giving Up on That Gigantic Grille

It’s been fun watching the Lexus ES’ face evolve over the past couple of decades. While the upscale midsizer always offered a more reserved and staid body than its brash IS and GS siblings, its grille slowly expanded over time. The grille creep sped up when the sixth-generation model arrived for 2013, with the transformation […] The post As New ES Looms, Lexus Isn’t Giving Up on That Gigantic Grille appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Get a Stick Shift Chevrolet Cruze While You Can, Because the 2019s Won’t Have ‘Em

There’s two bits of bad news in the lineup of refreshed Chevrolet small cars announced today. Three, if you’re a fan of the Sonic.

For 2019, the Chevrolet Malibu Puts on a Happier Face

In redesigning the midsize Chevrolet Malibu sedan for the 2016 model year, General Motors shaved an impressive amount of weight from the not-so-well-regarded eighth-generation model. It also stretched the wheelbase, adding volume to a rear seat many found lacking. Now boasting carefully creased body panels, the lithe-looking new Malibu relegated the chunky, previous design to […] The post For 2019, the Chevrolet Malibu Puts on a Happier Face appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

I Think i8 Can: Will a Refresh and Extra Range Give BMW’s Fading Eco Supercar a Boost?

When it went on sale in the latter part of 2014, BMW’s i8 was something of a sensation, though the enthusiasm had as much to do with the car’s jarring design as its technology. I seem to recall Tom Cruise tooling around Dubai in one, possibly in one of the 87 Mission Impossible films.

Mercedes-Maybach ‘Grillin’ It’ With Updated Styling Cues

Returning from the dead in 2014, Mercedes’ ultra-luxury Maybach sub-brand has become the only way to make absolutely certain you’ve purchased highest-spec S-class in existence. There was a problem, however. With the exception of a handful of subtle visual cues, there was no way to distinguish it from the standard fare.

Spied: 2019 GMC Sierra – Not Just Another Pretty Face

General Motors earned kudos from the TTAC crew by announcing a diesel inline-six for its redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, as well as for efforts to shave hundreds of pounds from the body and adopt a more slab-sided look. The front end met with resistance from this author, however, and still does.

Mercedes-Benz Says A-Class Sedan is Bound for the United States

When you desperately want a status-defining automobile from Mercedes-Benz, but haven’t budgeted for it, you have a few of options. You could purchase either the GLA or CLA250 for around $33,000 — or take the nontraditional route, save yourself a bundle, and buy a Metris van. But, since the CLA is technically a “four-door coupe,” […] The post Mercedes-Benz Says A-Class Sedan is Bound for the United States appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Yes, Virginia, There Is a New Toyota Avalon – and It Will Eat You

A quick glance of the North American automotive landscape reveals an environment not too welcoming for traditional passenger cars. Actually, it’s beyond unfriendly.

Interested in More Power? Mazda Drops a Turbo Into a Troubled Sedan

Underpowered. Not as refined as the competition. Fantastic looks. Excellent handling. It’s hard to find a review of the Mazda 6 midsize sedan that doesn’t include at least two of these observations.

World’s Biggest Rip-off of a Vehicle Gets a Facelift

You’ll never guess what Indian-owned, UK-based model this once looked like. Yes, the Landwind X7, arguably the closest automotive ripoff ever fielded by an automaker, no longer resembles its alleged muse.
