Name Your Price: Two Huge Jeeps, One of Them Topping Six Figures

It should come as no shock that the loftiest Jeep Grand Wagoneer will crest the six-figure mark; the automaker said as much when it announced its intention to resurrect the bygone range-topper. It’s not like Cadillac and Lincoln aren’t nudging that barrier (or breaking through it) already. But getting into a full-size Jeep next year […] The post Name Your Price: Two Huge Jeeps, One of Them Topping Six Figures appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept: Big Things Ahead

It’s not the production model, but it’s the closest we’ve gotten so far to Jeep’s returning full-size SUV. Sport-utility family, to be clear, as Jeep plans to offer its body-on-frame rig in a variety of flavors.

Report: Chevrolet’s Colorado ZR2 to Gain Big Brother?

If the current vehicle landscape tells us anything, it’s that Americans have never gone so far afield, well beyond the reach of pavement, in as many numbers as they do today.

Nissan’s New Z Appears in Two Weeks… Sort Of

Electric crossovers are all the rage, but they might not get blood pumping the way a rear-drive sports car can. Especially one with a heritage like Nissan’s Z. The subject of much rumor and speculation, the successor to today’s remarkably aged 370Z was already known to be in the works, carefully pored over by a […] The post Nissan’s New Z Appears in Two Weeks… Sort Of appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Report: GM Moves Corvette Braintrust to Electric Vehicle File

There’s nothing green about the 2020 (or near identical 2021) Corvette Stingray’s powertrain, but those who developed General Motors’ new mid-engine sports car will apparently have a say in the development of virtuous vehicles to come.

Refresh Awaits Hyundai’s Kona; N Line Model to Arrive for 2021

The subcompact Hyundai Kona earned itself no shortage of attention on these digital pages after it landed in dealers in February of 2018. Some of that press was, ahem, not favorable to the little Hyundai, which impressed neither in interior volume or in off-roadability. It’s a subcompact crossover, of course. Its utility will be limited. […] The post Refresh Awaits Hyundai’s Kona; N Line Model to Arrive for 2021 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The Chevrolet Bolt has carried the electric torch for General Motors for several years now. It’s lonely, but won’t be for long.

Overshadowed lately by a brace of upcoming full-size SUV stablemates, to say nothing of its reborn Ford Bronco rival, the plug-in Jeep Wrangler remains the next big introduction for the off-road brand.

The hottest vehicle segment that doesn’t yet exist — full-size electric pickups — continues to arouse interest online, though the nature of that buzz can’t be directly translated into future sales.

Volkswagen Reportedly Allows Passat to Live

Predator for Raptor? Ford’s Performance F-150 Reportedly Tapped for Hottest Engine

You’ll recall that, last week, a video surfaced of a camouflaged 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor prototype with an interesting exhaust note, leading to speculation that the next version of the brand’s dedicated off-road performance pickup would ditch V6 power for something more potent.

First of Many: Volkswagen EV Bound for U.S. Starts Production

The ID.4 isn’t the first all-electric Volkswagen to reach consumers in the United States. That distinction goes to the e-Golf, but that model’s all washed up after 2020.

That’s likely something you won’t hear from passers-by when the Blackwing versions of the Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V sedans appear a year from now.

Hyundai Sonata N Line Leaked

Perhaps feeling that this would be its last opportunity to woo American midsize sedan buyers, Hyundai pulled out all the styling stops when it crafted the current-generation Sonata. Heavy on lines and curves and sporting some impressive front-end lighting, the Sonata makes the Camry and Accord look stodgy by comparison.

Nissan unveiled the next-generation Rogue earlier this year, revealing a taller-looking, butched-up CUV with a newly direct-injected four-cylinder engine under hood.
