  • Germans, Brits and Ferrari's new V12 SUV | Autoblog Podcast #748

    In this episode of the Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Associate Editor Byron Hurd. With the Detroit Auto Show now in the rearview, focus shifts to news that crept up outside of the North American spotlight. The two talk about the new Ferrari Purosangue SUV, then pivot to a discussion about the future of the Dodge Charger and Challenger based on rumors of a new assembly facility. Next, they discuss what they've been driving recently. Byron leads off with anecdotes from his trip to Spain to drive the 2023 Range Rover Sport and his weekend with the VW GTI SE. Next, Greg talks about the ups and downs of the BMW X3 M Competition and Mercedes-Benz GLE450 Coupe. After that, they spend your money; this week's is a whopper.

  • 2022 Detroit Auto Show Editor’s Picks

    The best cars and SUVs from the 2022 North American International Auto Show. As tends to be the case in this post-ish-pandemic world of auto shows, the North American International Auto Show was a strange one. It was at least mostly indoors and thus not at the mercy of Mother Nature. And unlike that first Chicago Show following the initial pandemic shutdown, this one was all assembled before the media arrived. Even with a much thinner show floor, the Detroit Auto Show still gave us a number of noteworthy reveals. Now, full disclosure, the rules for our Detroit picks were made a little more flexible, since some of these vehicles were revealed a little before the week of the show. But we still focused on vehicles that were making their show debut, and were actually present on the floor. Sadly, that means we had to leave out the Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S electric SUV concepts. Odds are, those would've made it into our list of the top five if they had actually been on display. Now, on to the winners.

    In this episode of the Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Senior Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski and News Editor Joel Stocksdale. They're fresh off the show floor of the 2022 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and they have a lot to talk about. From the seventh-generation Ford Mustang, to the new Chrysler 300C with its 6.4-liter Hemi V8, to electrified Jeeps and Chevys and more, come along with us as we recap the show and its highlights.  Send us your questions for the Mailbag and Spend My Money at: Podcast@Autoblog.com.

  • Chevy Equinox EV will have a starting price of $30,000

    The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV gets its big reveal today, hitting the Internet just a week before the Detroit Auto Show. We’re only a few months on from Chevy revealing the Blazer EV, and for folks wishing for something affordable, the Equinox EV is going to look a fair bit more tantalizing.   GM is detailing a number of vital specs for every motor, battery and trim configuration today, but it’s only providing a price estimate for the base 1LT model, telling us that it will start “around $30,000.” For that price, you’ll get a single-motor front-wheel-drive Equinox EV that produces 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with the base (smallest) battery pack, and Chevy estimates a 250-mile range on a full charge. We don’t know how much the upcharge will be yet, but you can pair the 1LT with the big battery pack for 300 miles of range. You can also spec it with all-wheel drive, which automatically tacks on the big battery, leading to a range estimate of 280 miles. The 1LT eAWD (and every all-wheel-drive Equinox) comes with a dual-motor setup that results in a combined output of 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.

  • Ford Mustang revealed with an aggressive redesign

    Say hello to the 2024 Ford Mustang. Dodge may have just put the pin in its V8-powered muscle cars, but Ford is far from done selling its fire-breathing coupe as the Mustang enters its seventh generation.   Rumors of hybrid powertrains flew for years leading up to this Mustang’s reveal, but in the end, Ford is sticking familiar engines under the hood of this new pony car. A revamped 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is the Mustang’s base engine, and an updated 5.0-liter Coyote V8 remains the engine for the GT. In typical Ford fashion, power figures for both are not being made available at the car’s initial reveal, though a ford engineer let slip during its debut that it should produce 480 horsepower. Officially, however, Ford is saying only that the 5.0 will produce more power than the current car’s 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission now with rev-matching tech will be available for the GT, but the EcoBoost will be automatic-only starting in 2024 — Ford tells us the manual take rate on the four-cylinder was simply too low to justify offering it once more. The 10-speed automatic transmission on the previous Mustang carries over with some changes to the oily bits and new tuning for enhanced performance.   Read the full story here: https://www.autoblog.com/2022/09/14/2024-ford-mustang-revealed-detroit-auto-show/

  • Toyota GR Corolla on the track

    The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla is not grandma's Corolla. You definitely can't get it in gold. Senior editor James Riswick hits the track in Utah to see if the mighty little hot hatch is really worth all the hype. Available in Core, Circuit and Morizo Edition trim levels, each rocks a mighty 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-three that packs 300 horsepower. A three-pipe exhaust completes the three-themed powertrain trifecta. A six-speed manual that includes iMT auto rev-matching is standard along with the GR-Four all-wheel-drive system developed specially for the car that allows for different torque splits at the turn of a dial.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary Edition quick look

    The Grand Cherokee's special edition is fitting for the Detroit Auto Show, since the original model launched at the same show in 1992 (though that was back when the show was still in January). That original Grand Cherokee literally smashed through the doors of the convention center. This one is likely going to be quieter, mainly because it's a plug-in hybrid. The special edition is a $4,700 package on top of the cost of the 4xe, and it's distinguished by its body-color bumpers and cladding, black trim and 20-inch wheels, blue acents and dual exhaust. It also includes a number of nice features such as black leather, wireless phone charging, nine-speaker audio system, ventilated front seats and forward collision prevention systems that monitor intersections during turns. This version of the Grand Cherokee will be available to order later this year with deliveries coming early next year.

  • Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe quick look

    So far, the Wrangler 4xe has only been available in extra fancy Sahara or extra off-roady Rubicon trims. For 2023, the Willys trim is being added to line, along with a slightly lower base price of $55,590 with destination. That's $600 less than the 2022 Sahara, and $770 less than the 2023 Sahara. It gets some familiar Willys trimmings such as the black grille, Willys hood decals and vintage "4-Wheel Drive" rear decal. But the decals get unique 4xe tweaks such as the blue accents around the Willys decals and the addition of "Electric" on the "4-Wheel Drive" decal. It also comes standard with a rear limited-slip differential, black 17-inch wheels with mud-terrain tires, rock rails, full-time four-wheel-drive and LED lighting, plus a nine-speaker audio system. The Willys can be ordered now, and deliveries are coming later this year.   For the full story: https://www.autoblog.com/2022/09/14/jeep-grand-cherokee-4xe-30th-anniversary-wrangler-willys-detroit-auto-show/

  • The Lincoln Corsair 2023 has been revealed

    The 2023 Lincoln Corsair heads into its next model year with a notable refresh inside and out. Lincoln’s best-selling vehicle gains a number of items, but it also loses a big one: the previously optional 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Due to low take rate, Lincoln is dropping its most powerful engine from the lineup, making the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 250 horsepower the only pure-gasoline version of the 2023 Corsair. Lincoln says the 2.0-liter is updated and changed for emissions reasons, but it returns the same output and fuel economy as before. The Grand Touring PHEV carries over unchanged, so it’s still rocking the 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder and single electric motor for a combined 266 horsepower. The exterior changes are largely contained to the Corsair’s new face. It gets a totally new grille that is much larger than before. It features a wavy surface, and for the PHEV, it has a metallic foil surface with blue accents to denote its hybrid status. The lower front bumper is revised to accommodate the new grille design, and new wheel options are available across the board. No changes are made to the rear. Lastly, two new color options are available: Crystal Red and Whisper Blue. The blue is new to Lincoln, and seeing it in person, it skews more towards periwinkle than blue — we like it a lot. As for the interior, Lincoln has redesigned the center stack with a new 13.2-inch infotainment touchscreen taking center stage. It runs Sync 4 technology, can be updated via over-the-air updates and features Amazon Alexa. You’ll be able to monitor the Corsair’s new Auto Air Refresh system (an optional feature) via the infotainment system, too. It features a laser sensor and unique cabin air filter that constantly monitors the cabin air quality and is capable of refreshing the air in the cabin 1.5 times per minute. A 12.3-inch instrument cluster also runs new software for 2023, and it comes standard in the Corsair now. The new center stack designdeletes the large array of climate and media controls that were previously there, which Lincoln says was for the purpose of promoting a more airy cabin and a feeling of spaciousness. A volume knob is still present, but the vast majority of the functions previously controlled by buttons and knobs can now be found in the big, new touchscreen. Yes, that means the climate controls are now integrated into the touchscreen. Lincoln also says that customers want more tech, which apparently was interpreted as wanting to change the cabin temperature with a touchscreen. Less controversially, Lincoln expanded the lower media bin for greater storage capacity with this newfound space, but the result is largely just a more airy cabin. Trim and colors get a step up for 2023, as the dash trim can now be had with a backlit applique that features a perforated star pattern — it’s meant to look like a constellation on your dash. New color “themes” (as Lincoln likes to call them) include Eternal Red and Smoked Truffle. The red features aluminum accents and is a deep, rich shade of red. Meanwhile, the “Truffle” is a neutral combo of light brown and gray. The last big update of note for the Corsair is the addition of Lincoln’s Active Glide. It’s Lincoln’s brand name for Blue Cruise used in Ford products, and it was initially launched in the Navigator for Lincoln. The version coming to the Corsair is the same updated version that Ford just announced last week — it adds auto-lane changes, better lane-positioning tech and slows down for curves predictively. Lincoln says that ordering for the updated Corsair is available via its website now. You should expect to see the updated 2023 models hit dealerships in early 2023.

  • 2023 Kia Niro PHEV unveiled at the 2022 NYIAS

    The full range of 2023 Kia Niro models is making its debut here at the New York Auto Show, and the versatile, little hatchback is bringing big change for its new generation. By full range, we mean the HEV Hybrid, PHEV plug-in hybrid and fully-electric EV.

  • 2022 Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica walkaround at the 2022 NYIAS

    Lamborghini is bridging the gap between the two core versions of the Huracán with a new variant called Tecnica. Unveiled ahead of the 2022 New York Auto Show, the newest addition to the line packs a 631-horsepower V10, rear-wheel-drive, and aerodynamic updates. Developed to be equally at home on the road and on the track, the Huracán Tecnica fills the space separating the EVO and the STO. "In an era of virtual experiences, [the Tecnica] pays homage to technical purity and physical sensation," explained company boss Stephan Winkelmann. Visually, it stands out from its siblings with a redesigned front end that gains Y-shaped accents inspired by the track-only Huracán EVO2, a redesigned splitter, and air curtains integrated into the bumper (a first for the Huracán). Lamborghini notes that it gave the engine lid a new look to improve visibility, and cool-looking hexagonal exhaust outlets add a finishing touch to the muscular design. One noteworthy addition to the exterior design is the fixed rear wing. It helped engineers increase rear downforce by 35%, yet it doesn't increase drag; in fact, the Tecnica has 20% less drag compared to the EVO. New underbody panels further hone the aerodynamic profile.

  • 2023 Kia Niro walkaround

    The 2023 Kia Niro’s design is considerably sharper than before, but there’s one feature in particular that stood out to us at the New York Auto Show this week: The Aero Blade.

  • 2023 Kia Telluride NYIAS 2022 debut

    The 2023 Kia Telluride has been revealed at the New York Auto Show, and even though it's only a mid-cycle refresh, there’s plenty to talk about with Kia’s mega-popular three-row crossover SUV. Let’s start on the outside, as the Telluride gets a nip-and-tuck for 2023 to make it appear a little more rugged than before. We only have what Kia says about the base model to go on, though, as the 2023 model is being revealed in a new X-Pro trim that features different styling versus the regular model. For now, know that the 2023 Telluride is getting a new daytime running light signature, new taillights, new bumpers in front and rear, massaged door garnishes, new wheel designs and three new colors (Midnight Lake Blue, Dawning Red and Jungle Wood Green). Circling back to the X-Pro trim, it and the also new X-Line trim are new Telluride models designed for people who might want to do some soft off-roading with their family crossover. Both come standard with all-wheel drive.  

  • 2023 Subaru Outback walkaround

    The 2023 Subaru Outback makes its debut at the New York Auto Show with a number of changes. It’s this generation’s mid-cycle refresh, and Subaru has made minor appearance updates and added more tech to its lifted wagon.

  • 2024 Chevy Silverado EV | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is a completely unique truck compared to the internal combustion model, and actually shares its parts with the GMC Hummer EV. It will only be available in RST trim for regular customers for the first model year, as well as a fleet-only Work Truck trim. But additional trims and a second, smaller battery pack will be available for the 2025 model year. Both have a range of around 400 miles and dual electric motors. The Work Truck makes 510 horsepower, while the RST makes 664. Each truck is about the size of a normal Silverado, but feature lots of space with a front trunk, a bigger cabin, and a nearly 6-foot bed. That bed can be expanded with the available Midgate, a feature returning from the discontinued Chevy Avalanche. The RST model will launch with a price above $100,000, but the following year will introduce a base model for private customers starting around $40,000.

  • 2022 Ford GT | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    The 2022 Ford GT gets one more retro edition before it ends production this year. The new iteration is the Alan Mann Heritage Edition. It's inspired by a pair of 1966 Ford GT40 race cars built by the British racing outfit Alan Mann Racing. What made those cars significant were their aluminum body shells. While the lightweight bodies made the 289-ci V8 GT40s quick, Ford ended up focusing on cars using larger 427-ci engines instead. The special edition GT has the new car's carbon fiber construction instead of aluminum, but it gets an updated version of the race cars' red paint with gold and white stripes.

  • 2023 Kia Sportage | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    The third version of the 2023 Kia Sportage has been revealed at the Chicago Auto Show, and it's a plug-in hybrid. The Sportage PHEV features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, as well as a battery pack that Kia estimates can provide 32 miles of electric range. Final output for the powertrain hasn't been revealed, but the engine and motor are basically the same as that in the larger Sorento PHEV, which makes 261 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That would make this the most powerful Sportage model. It also comes standard with all-wheel-drive, and it's only available in the more rugged-looking X-Line trims. It goes on sale later this year, and it will likely be the most expensive variant of the Sportage.

  • 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is yet another off-road-oriented trim level in the SUV's expansive line-up. This one is based on the four-cylinder Sasquatch model, but gets many extra features. Up front is a metal off-road bumper with a mount for a standard 10,000-pound Warn winch. It's also fully crash-tested and doesn't interfere with the Bronco's other safety equipment and driver assist systems. It also features an intake snorkel and elevated axle and transmission vents to add nearly 3 extra inches of water fording capability. Other parts include the roof rack and rock rails, plus unique wheels and front fender graphics. It starts at just over $54,000 and will be available this summer.
