  • 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.

  • Chicago Auto Show recap, chatting with McKeel Hagerty | Autoblog Podcast #717

    In this episode of the Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by News Editor Joel Stocksdale. They chat about the Chicago Auto Show and spending time in a couple of Nissan products: Stocksdale in the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder, and Migliore in the 2022 Infiniti QX55.   Following all this is a special interview between Migliore and the CEO of Hagerty Insurance, McKeel Hagerty.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2024 Chevy Silverado EV's party tricks is the Midgate | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    One of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV's party tricks is the Midgate, a feature that returns from the long-discontinued Chevy Avalanche. The truck, which comes in one body configuration, has a bed length of just shy of 6 feet. But with the available MultiFlex tailgate and the Midgate, the latter of which folds into the cabin, overall load length is around 10 feet. The Midgate has been updated over the Avalanche design, too. Instead of only being fully open or fully closed, the new version has a 60/40 split lower section, which can leave the rear glass in place. And of course, the entire middle section can be opened up for especially large items. The way it folds also leaves an easily cleaned and rugged plastic floor, so you don't damage the interior.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2023 Toyota bZ4X and 2023 Subaru Solterra | 2022 Chicago Auto Show

    The 2023 Toyota bZ4X and 2023 Subaru Solterra are some of the first fully electric cars the brands' will sell across the United States. They're also extremely similar, but not quite identical. As such, we wanted to highlight their differences. Design-wise, the differences are in the front and rear sections. The bZ4X eschews any sort of grille design, while the Subaru has a faux grille to tie it to its internal combustion cars. It also has a slightly more rugged lower front fascia. At the rear, the Toyota has a full-width taillight, while the Subaru uses more conventional-looking units. The powertrains are slightly different, too. The Toyota comes standard with a 201-horsepower front motor and a range of 250 miles. The Subaru comes with dual motors standard, making around 215 horsepower. It has a shorter range of 220 miles. That powertrain is also available on the Toyota, but as an option.

  • 2022 GMC Yukon infotainment system walkthrough

    This 2022 GMC Yukon infotainment system walkthrough highlights the best parts of the Android Automotive-based infotainment. We show the native Google Maps navigation system, demonstrate the Google Assistant and discuss how it differs from the standard GM infotainment. This system comes standard on the 2022 model year GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. Plus, it’s also standard on the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. Despite it being Android-based on the back-end, rest assured that this infotainment still includes Apple CarPlay and regular Android Auto functionality, both of which can be connected to wirelessly.

  • 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo at the L.A. Auto Show

    The 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo are more enthusiast-oriented Taycans with a greater emphasis placed on handling precision rather than all-out power (like the Turbo and Turbo S). To that end, the suspension hardware carries over, but the calibration and tuning are special to the GTS, which Porsche says results in improved response and a greater sense of connection to the road. The new GTS Sport Turismo has a further handling advantage over other versions of the Taycan's wagon-like body style in that it doesn't feature the same 20-mm ride height increase over the sedan. It also lacks the wheel arch cladding. This is why the GTS is a Sport Turismo rather than a Cross Turismo. The Taycan, however, basically splits the atypically enormous gap between 4S (462 horsepower) and Turbo (670 hp) with a combined output of 590 hp. The 0-60 time, with Launch Control, is 3.5 seconds, which also splits the difference between the 3.8-second 4S and 3.0-second Turbo.

  • 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS at the 2021 LA Auto Show

    Unveiled here at the L.A. Auto Show is the latest pinnacle of the 718 family: the 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The big headline here is the engine. Like the regular GT4, it has a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six that revs to 9,000 rpm, but this would be the new version shared by the equally new 911 GT3 and the its Cup car racing cousin. The letters RS therefore bring with them an extra 79 horses for a grand total of 493 horsepower plus 331 pound-feet of torque. That's up by 14 lb-ft. Like every Porsche RS model, a seven-speed PDK transmission is mandatory and features shorter gearing than the "regular" GT4's available PDK. The price is $143,050 to start, including destination, which represents a price premium of $40,500 for the letters RS and everything they entail.

  • 2021 Ram 1500 TRX off-roading demonstration

    Autoblog editors John Beltz Snyder and Zac Palmer go for a ride in the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX at the 2021 Motor Bella auto show in Pontiac, Michigan. The Hellcat-powered TRX takes the fight to the Ford F-150 Raptor with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 boasting 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. It’ll do 0-60 miles per hour in a brisk 4.5 seconds. The TRX isn’t just powerful, though. It’s also a beast off-road, with 11.8 inches of ground clearance and Bilstein Black Hawk e2 shocks that help make for a smooth landing when the truck gets airborne. And yes, we got all four wheels off the ground in this thrilling ride along.

  • 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning on track experience

    Autoblog editors John Beltz Snyder and Zac Palmer go for a ride in the 2022 Ford F-150 at the 2021 Motor Bella auto show in Pontiac, Michigan. This is the very same Lightning protoype that U.S. President Joe Biden drove at the vehicle’s reveal back in May. This all-electric pickup will be offered with standard- and long-range battery packs providing an estimated 230 to 300 miles of driving range. A dual-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain is standard. The standard-range model offers 427 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque, while the extended-range bumps power up to 563 horsepower with the same 775 pound-feet.

  • 2022 Ford GT 64 Heritage Edition driving on the road and track

    Ford will end production of the GT after the 2022 model year, but its design team isn't out of ideas yet. The latest (and probably last) Heritage Edition variant has been unveiled as a tribute to five prototypes built in 1964. Instead of honoring a race car, like it has done with previous Heritage Edition models, Ford chose to shine the spotlight on one of the test mules that paved the way for the GT40. The company launched the program in 1963, and it presented the first prototype less than a year later at the 1964 edition of the New York Auto Show. Development work continued, and four additional prototypes were built to test various aspects of the car, including crashworthiness. Ford's diligence paid off: It famously beat Ferrari in a one-two-three finish at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

  • 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Car Wash

    Our Mach-E Premium test car, with dual-motor AWD, starts from $50,800. Its $5,000 Extended Range option includes a 98.4-kWh battery and 270 miles of range, plus more powerful motors that increase output to 346 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque (290 hp, 317 lb-ft of torque and 300 miles of range with RWD). A $400 coat of Rapid Red paint kicked the tally to $56,200. That’s Mustang Shelby GT350 money, and a boatload for a compact crossover that doesn't carry a luxury badge. But it’s the feds to the rescue, with the available $7,500 tax credit for EVs. And the Mach-E Premium’s $48,700 post-credit price stood out when it stood next to an Audi e-Tron Sportback that I was also testing. The Audi is even quieter than the near-silent ‘Stang, among the quietest cars in auto history. The e-Tron is wildly more luxurious, essentially a dreamy Audi Q8 with electric drive. The e-Tron also cost $82,500 post-credit, nearly $34,000 more than the Ford. Is the Audi $34,000 better? Not even close, especially given its range shortfall.
