Mazda Celebrates Miata Heritage With 30th Anniversary Edition Model

The Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary edition pays homage to the car’s legacy. Unique and exclusive features include Racing Orange paint and special serial number badging. Mazda dropped the 30th Anniversary edition Miata at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show recently. It was, after all, at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show when the Miata first graced the world. Despite all the expected amazement that these little guys have been around since the USSR was a thing, the Miata is still the best bang for your buck...

One More Thing About That Mazda Crossover…

Amid the hoopla surrounding last week’s Chicago Auto Show and its many new and refreshed trucks and crossovers, Mazda teased a butt shot of a mysterious new crossover bound for a Geneva reveal next month. Mazda’s crossovers, especially the CX-5, garner more enthusiast attention than, say, a Hyundai or Toyota CUV, due to the zoom-zoom […] The post One More Thing About That Mazda Crossover… appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Kia Sportage: Refreshed & Ready To Mingle

On the heels of an emotional Super Bowl ad for the Telluride, Kia is staying on the gas in 2019. While the Telluride is the largest member of Kia’s house, the Sportage is no couch potato. Refreshed and recharged for another round, the 2020 Kia Sportage comes with a handful of tech and safety upgrades. Those not looking for the space (or cost) of a larger SUV may find the new Sportage does the trick. We would opt for the new S trim personally, which has a more athletic exterior look. Yet, regardl...

With No New Vehicle to Show in Chicago, Cadillac Tweaks the XT5

The Cadillac XT5, which happens to be a perfect all-weather urban vehicle, is a major breadwinner for the upscale brand. By far the best-selling vehicle in the Caddy stable, the XT5 midsize crossover out-volumes the bigger and pricier Escalade by a factor of two to one.

Subaru puts some oomph behind the Legacy name with 2020 model

On Thursday, as promised in the teasers that Subaru published last week, the 2020 Legacy made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show with new tech and an updated collection of powertrain options.

Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition: Nissan Stacks On The Goodies

The Rock Creek Edition jazzes up Nissan’s evergreen SUV. Many of the exterior treatments are blacked-out or darkened.  The special-edition Pathfinder has a V6 engine with direct injection.  Nissan just keeps cranking out the Pathfinder, and why shouldn’t they? I see these things all over the place – yes, I live in a rural area – but the interesting thing is that I still see the original versions from 1987 out there. That’s a testament to durability and longevity that any car maker would love t...

Beyond Adventure: Toyota’s RAV4 – Yes, the RAV4 – Gets the TRD Treatment

After last year’s Camry and Avalon surprise, it should come as no shock that Toyota’s keen to expand TRD branding beyond its body-on-frame trucks and SUVs. Frankly, the automaker ran out of BOF vehicles to tune for the trail. Enter the RAV4, redesigned for 2019 and still no one’s idea of a hardcore off-roader.

Motorcycle-themed 2019 Ford F-150 concept is making an appearance at Chicago Auto Show

The Harley-Davidson-themed Ford F-150, a concept model that went on display last August at the motorcycle brand's 115th Anniversary event, turned out to be so popular and highly-requested that -- at long last -- the motorcycle-styled pickup truck that was in production for over a decade in the early 2000s will be put back on the market. Naturally with a special edition truck comes a hearty, custom lift-kit and new set of high performance shock absorbers.

Volkswagen teases new sporty GLI with 6-second tweet

While we currently know no further specifications, it's likely that when VW says that this GLI has the heart of a GTI, they're referring to the engine -- that would significantly boost both the horsepower and torque from that of the most recent Jetta. Volkswagen's press conference at the Chicago Auto Show is scheduled for Thursday morning at 9:30am CT, so it won't be long until we find out the details.

Subaru teases 2020 Legacy one week before Chicago debut

Accompanying an extremely brief announcement by Subaru stating that it would be revealing the 2020 Legacy at the Chicago Auto Show next week, the company shared two five- and six-second teaser clips on Twitter of the upcoming model: one of the high-tech cabin and another of the shadowed, gray exterior.

Teased 2020 Toyota Tacoma debuting at Chicago Auto Show

Toyota revealed that the 2020 Tacoma is "tacom-ing" to Chicago next week but gave out little more information about the upcoming truck apart for a picture of a shadowy top half. On Tuesday, Toyota shared a teaser image of the 2020 Tacoma showing only the top part of the truck as seen from the front at dusk. From what is barely pictured in the image, we can see that not much has changed in terms of exterior design -- at least, for the top half -- which makes sense considering that this 2020 upd...
