2021 Nissan Kicks Overview: Trim Levels, Standard Features, New Tech & More

The 2021 Nissan Kicks is probably the coolest three-year-old you’ll meet this year.

That field is packed with entries, including the Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30, and Mini Cooper Countryman. First impressions matter, and you’ll see this Kicks has a more aggressive look than last year’s model. The 2021 Nissan Kicks has a larg...

Pop quiz: where can you find the power of a pickup with the creature comforts of a minivan? Honda redesigned its 2021 Ridgeline to offer just that. The refreshed Ridgeline, which arrives February 2nd, looks and feels like a rugged truck, but buyers should pay close attention to the details. 2021 Honda Ridgeline: Engine & Powertrain Honda fitted the Ridgeline with a 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft. of torque.

Cadillac Debuts New 33-Inch User Interface for Next-Generation Driver Experiences

This article originally appeared on AutoVision News. It has been republished with permission. Cadillac’s LYRIQ, the brand’s first all-electric SUV, is yet another example of how the automaker plans to “push the boundaries of in-vehicle user experiences.” For proof that is more than talk, Cadillac stressed it has partnered with Territory Studio, known for creative interface designs, and Rightpoint, a Genpact company, throughout the development of a new 33-inch driver interface.

Used Vehicle Prices Up, But Bargains Are Available: Here Is What The Data Says

The average price increase for used cars is 9.5 percent or $2,193 compared to 2019. Convertibles saw the greatest increase of any segment with a 27.2 percent overall jump. Despite the trend of used vehicle prices going up, some have actually decreased in price. You can still score a great deal on a used car, but you’ll likely pay more than you would have a year ago as used vehicle prices are up. As we mentioned in an earlier article, dealers have 25 percent less inventory now due to pandemic...

2021 Chevy Tahoe & Suburban to Add Duramax Diesel for New Model Year

You now have the option to buy the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban with the 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel. That’s the same engine we told you the automaker put in its 2020 Chevy Silverado to rave reviews for its fuel economy. Plan on the fuel economy kudos to continue now that the 3.0-liter Duramax is available on these two models. Chevy reports its rear-wheel drive 2021 Tahoe fitted with a Duramax diesel received an EPA-estimated 21/28 city/highway fuel economy rating. By contrast, the four-w...

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition: This Limited Production Machine Is On The Prowl!

Now here’s a holiday gift you’d likely love to receive – the 2021 Audi R8 Panther edition. Audi says it has “exclusive interior and exterior design elements.” We just call it stealthy and sexy. The catch? Production is limited to 30 examples. So you know, only a few dealerships will have them. Oh, and another hiccup for buyers is the need to shell out $183,300 plus destination and other fees. Ah, what price beauty? Audi R8 Panther Edition: Standard Equipment Those that can splurge­­ – o...

2021 Toyota Sienna Overview: Trim Levels, Tech & Safety Features, Pricing & More

The word “swagger” isn’t one that leaps to mind when you hear the term minivan, but Toyota hopes its just-announced 2021 Sienna changes that. Perhaps Toyota coined the term “swagger wagon” to wipe away reminders that minivan sales are in the dumpster, and many reviewers contend Sienna rates way behind the Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Pacifica, and Kia Sedona. Sure, Toyota has top sales with many models, including Camry, RAV4,  and Prius. Still, the Sienna minivan is consistently bested by the Hond...

Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept: The Jeep For Brave Mountain Bikers!

There are plenty of reasons to love Jeep, but the Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept is the first one that ever made me seriously consider mountain biking. Jeep used a 2020 Gladiator as the Top Dog’s foundation, then added racks, storage systems, and some brute power to take you on muddy, boulder-strewn adventures. You probably remember that Mopar released the Jeep Gladiator Farout Concept in April. Yes, this new Jeep concept is similar, but the extras make it truly ready for mountain bikers. The...

Chevy K5 Blazer-E Rolls Into SEMA360 as a Modern EV With Vintage Flair

Chevrolet’s latest concept build is a “blast from the past” and takes us back to the 1970s when the K5 Blazer roamed the streets. This is Chevy’s latest eCrate conversion concept that pairs the body of a 1977 K5 Blazer with an all-electric propulsion system. The result is this stunning K5 Blazer-E. If you’re like me, you’ve heard Gen Z drivers lament the classic good looks of mid-century rides – especially muscle cars – and yearn for an environmentally friendly option. Expect that group to b...

Mini Rolls Out Two New Special Editions & We Want Both

Expect Mini Coopers’ just released 1499 GT Special Edition and the Mini Countryman Oxford Edition to stoke excitement among its fans. The automaker has only about 0.21 percent of the U.S. market share, but Mini owners are loyal. I had weekly invitations to drive my own Union Jack-decorated Mini Coupe to an array of enthusiast events or buy bling that harkened back to the Mini’s 1959 birth. The spunky Mini didn’t arrive in the U.S. until 2002, and I can tell you there are plenty of owners that...

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: New Styling Cues Make it Look Less Like a Pontiac Aztek

You’ll see the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that is slated to roll into showrooms early next year has shed the bloated look that was somewhat reminiscent of an old gym shoe. The exterior design of this new Eclipse Cross is more akin to a pair of Nike Air Force 1s. It has a slimmer, sportier look, a more refined interior, and better tech. 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Powertrain Those are all positives, but the automaker primarily touts the eco-friendliness of this new Eclipse Cross, alt...

Enjoy This Gallery of Lamborghini Urraco Photos! This Car is Rare & Beautiful!

The Lamborghini Urraco is one good-looking 50 year old. When this 2+2 coupe debuted at the October 1970 Turin Motor Show, critics hailed its technical innovations. Engineer Paolo Stanzani, the father of the Urraco and Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer at that time, deserved a lot of the credit. And the style was pretty sleek, too. The angular body was 4.25 meters (just under 14 feet) long, and the Urraco’s interior was unique to the time, with things like a “dished” steering wheel. Des...

2022 VW Taos: New Compact SUV Due Next Summer. Will It Be a Winner?

Volkswagen plans yet another entry into the profitable crossover and SUV segment, this time with the elegant Taos. The 2022 VW Taos is the automaker’s smallest and least expensive SUV – yes, it even beats the Tiguan in those categories – but still boasts the stately exterior and gee-whiz features that have become VW mainstays in recent years. “Taos is our fifth new addition to the Volkswagen SUV family in just four years, and we’re thrilled to keep finding new ways to meet the needs of Americ...

2021 Nissan Altima: A Quick Walk Around Nissan’s Newest Sedan

The 2021 Nissan Altima will be offered for the same price as last year but Nissan dumped some trim combinations and reordered the lineup. The more significant news is that the SR Plus loses its standard moonroof, heated front seats, and Intelligent Lane Intervention. However, you can still opt for them with the Premium Package. 2021 Nissan Altima: Engine & Powertrain The other big news is how the VC-Turbo is only available on Altima SR.

Q5, A7 & A8 TFSI: Audi Rolls Out a Trifecta of Plug-in Hybrids for 2021

Audi has rolled out details about its eco-friendly 2021 Q5, A7, and A8 TFSI e models, and while they’ve got sleeker styles, more torque, and better tech, the big news is their energy efficiency. The additions seem like solid steps toward the automaker’s goal of making 30 percent of its U.S. portfolio electrified in the next five years, despite lagging sales and layoffs. “[Tesla] showed that electric cars are working, that a fully electric car is the right solution,” said former Volkswagen CEO...

2021 Audi R8 RWD Coupe & Spyder: Strong Performance but for Less Cash!

Now may be the time for budget-conscious Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder lovers to take the leap into their dream cars. The automaker just announced that rear-wheel drive (RWD) versions of both are permanent editions to the lineup beginning with the 2021 model year. The RWD models lack some of the charisma you find on the higher-end quattro models, most notably a drop of 70 points in horsepower and slightly less torque. 2021 Audi R8 RWD: Engine & Powertrain Still, RWD models have the same 5.2...

2021 Ford F-150 3.5-liter PowerBoost Endures Harsh Testing (Video & Photos)

Ford unveiled a full-hybrid powertrain for its new F-150 earlier this year, the first full-system hybrid of its kind on the truck market. Although news of this model and a soon-to-be-announced all-electric model leaked months ago, specs were anybody’s guess.

2021 Honda Ridgeline: More Aggressive But Still Packed With High-Tech Goodies

Honda completely redesigned the Ridgeline for 2021. It has the heavy-duty looks and is ready to take on its “tough-stuff” midsize pickup competitors. The 2021 Honda Ridgeline, which will debut early next year, has a V6 engine, all-wheel drive, 1,580 lbs. payload capacity, and an impressive towing capacity of up to 5,000 lbs. And get this: its bed hauls four-foot-wide building materials flat, with no scratches or dents. And nope, no bed liner is needed. According to Honda, the new Ridgeline’s ...

Lexus J201 Concept to Tackle Upcoming Rebelle Rally

When the Lexus J201 Concept debuts October 8th in the 10-day, 1200-mile, women-only Rebelle Rally across Nevada and California, it’s a clear sign that politicians aren’t the only ones that play to their bases. Even though Lexus is a luxury brand, they do tout their off-road capabilities in vehicles like the LX 570 and GX 460. Toyota’s luxury cousin has long had its best sales in the United States, so it makes sense the automaker would craft its own modified version of the Lexus LX 570 as an o...

2021 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition: “Tip of The Stetson”

One look at Ram’s just announced 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition, and it’s tough even to call it a pickup truck. Sure, this Ram is plenty rugged though it’s also extra cozy. Ram equips it with a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 or 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. A Crew Cab body configuration is standard with a 5-ft.-7-in. or 6-ft.-4-in. bed length available.

When the 2021 Nissan Rogue pulls into dealer lots later this month, you will see the entry-level S with a base price of $25,650. Nissan is ballyhooing the budget-conscious MSRP of this all-new model because the automaker positioned it as a family-friendly option in the highly profitable mid-size crossover segment that includes the popular Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. “Rogue is the first of six new vehicles that will be in Nissan showrooms by the end of 2021,” said Mike Colleran, Senior Vice P...
