2018 VW Passat GT Combines Sportier Styling With 280HP V6 For Under $30k 16
Jan
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Detroit-Auto-Show, new cars, VW, VW Passat on 01 16th, 2018


An all-new Volkswagen Passat is coming to North America in 2019 but the company isn’t going to let the outgoing model sit idly by so they have introduced the new Passat GT.

Previewed by a concept at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the production model features a host of styling tweaks that give the family sedan a sportier appearance. The model is based on the Passat R-Line and features a honeycomb grille which sits between LED headlights. A closer inspection reveals black accents, a rear spoiler, and 19-inch alloy wheels with cover red brake calipers.

Since the model is living on borrowed time, interior changes are relatively minor and include black leatherette seats with Moonrock Gray inserts. Other touches include carbon fiber optic trim, piano black accents, and aluminum scuff plates with GT badging. The model also comes equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and a 6.3-inch infotainment system.

Despite the sporty styling cues, the Passat GT is more show than added go. It features a sport-tuned suspension but the 3.6-liter VR6 engine carries over and continues to produce 280 hp (208 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. Volkswagen declined to release acceleration times but said the model has a six-speed automatic transmission which allows the sedan to return an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city / 28 mpg highway.

Pricing starts at $29,090 and the model is slated to arrive at U.S. dealerships in the second quarter of 2018.

Chevy’s 2019 Silverado Brings The Heat To Full-Size Truck Segment 16

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Silverado, Galleries, new cars, Trucks on 01 16th, 2018


Chevrolet’s 2019 Silverado pickup was unveiled just in time to take on the new-gen RAM 1500 and Ford’s updated F-150 bestseller.

This year’s Detroit Auto Show is packed full of iconic nameplates that wouldn’t even frown when faced with any sort of rough terrain. From the previously-mentioned pickup trucks, all the way to the new G-Wagen, running out of tarmac shouldn’t be a problem.

Compared to its predecessor, the 2019 Silverado is less conservative and features stronger character lines. For a more rugged look, go for the LT Trailboss which adds the suspension lift, locking rear diff and skid plates.

Unlike the exterior, the cabin of the all-new Silverado isn’t too different than it was before, influenced strongly by customer feedback, while packing an extra three inches of rear leg room for crew-cab models.

Power unit choices will include new 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 options, as well as a 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel, where the latter could end up to be the best performing diesel in the segment, according to GM exec, Mark Reuss. This could mean that it will feature higher power and torque numbers than Ford’s new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V6, rated at 250 horses and 440 lb ft (596 Nm).

Just like Ford’s diesel, the Silverado’s will also be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

In total, Chevrolet will offer eight different 2019 Silverado versions, plus a wide range of engine and transmission combinations in hopes of helping customers find their ideal pickup.

Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Hybrids, LEXUS, Lexus LS, new cars, prices on 01 15th, 2018


Lexus is launching the new LS luxury sedan in the US market with an entry price that’s actually cheaper than its predecessor.

The new Lexus LS starts from $75,995, including a $995 destination and handling fee, making it $3,820 cheaper than the outgoing long-wheelbase model. The hybrid LS 500h has a starting price of $80,505.

The launch of the company’s new flagship sedan will be accompanied by a new commercial during the 2018 Super Bowl next month.

“The 2018 LS is one of the most important launches in our brand’s history, so it makes sense for us to use a stage like the Super Bowl to showcase it to our customers. The LS not only offers unsurpassed performance, style and luxury, its competitive pricing makes it a great value as well,” said Lexus Group Vice President and Division General Manager, Jeff Bracken.

Based on the company’s latest GA-L platform, the new Lexus LS is offered with an all-new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 416hp and 442lb-ft of torque, 30hp and 75lb-ft more than its naturally aspirated V8 predecessor.

The hybrid LS500h uses the same Multistage Hybrid System that debuted in the LC500h Coupe, combining a 3.5-liter V6 that runs on the Atkinson cycle with two electric motors for a total of 354hp.

Every new Lexus LS model comes loaded with the Safety System+ as standard. This includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Intelligent High Beam headlamps, Lane Departure Alert and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Lane Keep Assist. Customers can opt for the Lexus Safety System+ A that adds Pedestrian Alert, Active Steering Assist, Front Cross Traffic Alert, Road Sign Assist, Lane Departure Alert with road edge detection and the semi-autonomous Lexus CoDrive which combines Lane Trace Assist and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

BMW Hatches The New X2 Crossover In Detroit 15

Posted by Michael Gauthier in BMW, BMW X2, Detroit-Auto-Show, new cars on 01 15th, 2018


BMW already offers five crossovers in the United States but that hasn’t stopped the company from unveiling a sixth model at the North American International Auto Show.

Billed as a sporty and urban crossover, the X2 eschews the coupe-inspired styling of the larger X4 and X6 for a unique appearance that resembles a large hatchback. It remains to be seen how wagon-hating America will respond to his decision but the model is based on the popular X1 and is 2.8 inches lower and 3.2 inches shorter than its counterpart.

The interior styling will be familiar to BMW fans and drivers will SensaTec upholstery, high-gloss black trim, and a freestanding 6.5-inch infotainment system. A variety of options will be available including Dakota leather, a heads-up display, and an 8.8-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation.

A 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine resides under the hood and produces 228 hp (170 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system which enables the X2 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of up to 143 mph (230 km/h).

The 2018 BMW X2 will go on sale in the United States this spring and pricing starts at $38,400.
