McLaren May Sell Stake in F1 Team to Improve Chances of Survival

With McLaren scrounging for cash and cutting 1,200 positions from its ranks in the hopes of prolonging its own existence, it would be an understatement to claim 2020 has been unkind to the automaker. Most nameplates are having a rough year. And almost all are seeking ways to turn things around before the situation becomes untenable […] The post McLaren May Sell Stake in F1 Team to Improve Chances of Survival appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mercedes-Benz 2021 S-Class jumps on the giant touchscreen bandwagon

Mercedes-Benz sent out a teaser image and video Monday of its upcoming 2021 S-Class that hints at a sleeker interior that forgoes the bevy of physical knobs and toggles found in previous models in favor of a digital-centric design. The teasers illustrate a movement in the automotive industry popularized by Tesla to incorporate large touchscreens in new models. Little is known about Mercedes’ next-generation MBUX infotainment system, which will debut in the 2021 S-Class. It appears, based on Merc...

Familiar Faces: Ineos Debuts Grenadier Design

If it seems like years have passed since we’ve issued an update on Ineos Group’s attempt at building a Defender-inspired SUV, that’s because it has been. The British chemical conglomerate asked Land Rover if it could assemble copies of the then-defunct automobile back in 2016, only to be told to take a hike. Unfazed, CEO Jim Ratcliffe […] The post Familiar Faces: Ineos Debuts Grenadier Design appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The Mazda Bump: What a Difference a ‘0’ Makes

June auto sales in the hard-hit U.S. new vehicle market were nowhere near normal for this time of the year, down an estimated 25 percent below levels seen last June. An improvement from May, yes, but far from a return to normal. Unless, of course, you’re Mazda. The pandemic-era trend we detailed not long ago […] The post The Mazda Bump: What a Difference a ‘0’ Makes appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Snow Tiger: Hookie’s Triumph flat tracker is just purrfect

Flat track racing is still going strong in the USA and Europe, and we’re starting to see customizers building personal track bikes between client projects. This chunky Triumph T100R belongs to Hookie Co. founder Nico Mueller—and despite its age, it carries the same sharp aesthetic that the German shop has become known for. Nico originally found the 1967 T100R Tiger (also known as the Daytona) on eBay in the UK, after seeing a post on Sideburn Magazine’s website. Some digging revealed that...

Nissan’s CEO Explains Recovery Plan to Angry Investors

Still Some Love for Internal Combustion in Italy

Nations like Germany might treat internal combustion engines like a shirtless man lighting up a Marlboro in a neonatal intensive care unit, but some countries still feel that they have a place in the automotive landscape. Italy even plans to put public dollars behind their purchase. When economies and industries are suffering, governments can sometimes do […] The post Still Some Love for Internal Combustion in Italy appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ford's new Bronco: Off-road education will be standard equipment

Full news on the new Bronco is yet to come, but Ford has sent out some more teasers, including the news that with the purchase of any Bronco or with the Badlands trim of the Bronco Sport, you'll get an off-road driving experience thrown in (once you get yourself there, of course).

Bronco Family: Two’s Not Enough?

Like its Mustang stable mate, Ford’s returning Bronco finds itself with a brood. The Bronco is now a brand, comprised of the namesake, body-on-frame off-roader and the tag-along Bronco Sport — a retro-styled model based on the unibody Ford Escape. That’s apparently just the start of it. Ford isn’t shy when it comes to discussing the […] The post Bronco Family: Two’s Not Enough? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Adventures in Marketing: Ford Bronco Goes Into the Wild

New Images of the Yamaha Leaning-Trike Design Surface

Weird and Futuristic Yamaha has some odd three-wheeled machines in its lineup, but those designs are honestly good ones if you like a third wheel. There have been rumors of the company adding another leaning trike to its lineup, and now Cycle World has shared some images that show what the bike will likely look like.  Hybrid Trike? The publication says the new Yamaha bike is built on the MW-Vision concept bike design that was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show last year. That design was crazier...

Junkyard Find: 2009 Pontiac G3 Wave

The years 2008 and 2009 were interesting times for GM, with the company filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on June 1, 2009 and the Pontiac Division clearly on the ropes (despite the Bondo applied over Pontiac’s rusty image by the Solstice).

2020 Honda CBR400R Revealed in Japan

A Ready-to-Go Small Sportbike Honda recently revealed the 2020 version of the CBR400R in Japan, according to Indian Autos Blog. Unfortunately, this motorcycle will be for the Japanese market only, but it’s a killer bike and one that I would like to see Honda take elsewhere in the world. The motorcycle features the same 399cc engine that is fitted to the CB400X that I discussed not long ago. The engine is is a parallel-twin and it puts out about 45 hp. It will likely be tuned a bit differently f...

Piaggio Group Secures $60 Million Loan

Keeping Things Rolling Piaggio Group is a massive organization. The group is comprised of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Vespa, and other brands, and rakes in a lot of money, so I was a bit surprised to learn that the company secured a $60 million loan in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Piaggio Group isn’t in financial trouble. The company is massive and can weather an economic storm like the one that accompanied COVID-19. However, the virus has put a lot of stress on the company’s various brands,...
