2018 Chevrolet Tahoe performs better with RST performance package

Chevrolet offers an extensive collection of appearance packages for various models. The likes of the Rally, Redline, and Midnight Editions possess a certain aura of individuality compatible to its respective owners. Customers can choose from any of these appearance packages to suite their tastes – from the reliable Rally Edition to the classy Custom Sport HD. For 2018, Chevrolet is adding another exciting deal for their valued customers.

Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are getting a Rally Sport Truck (RST) package for 2018, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. This RST package is not your usual “trim-and-tape” makeover even as it does feature the usual “required” big wheels and blacked-out elements. That’s because it has more to offer and even has interesting tricks up its sleeve.

Pricing and other details (i.e. fuel economy) haven’t been released yet but the RST models are expected to launch sometime this coming fall while the V8 upgrade will come shortly after (pricing information may be available close to its on-sale date, though).

Audi is not going to reveal a V6 powered R8 at 2018 New York Auto Show

For many years, the internet has been making noise about a new Audi R8, and recent reports said that Audi will finally introduce an entry level R8 that will be equipped with a biturbo 2.9 liter V6 engine at the upcoming 2018 New York Auto Show. But apparently, all that was just a false alarm. In an interview between Road and Track and an Audi spokesperson, it was revealed that the R8 is not getting a V6 engine.

For quite some time now, the automaker did mention that the company is planning on installing a new V6 like that of the RS5 Coupe and RS4 Avant, in a cheaper R8 version, just below the V10 version. To further support that statement, there was a roadmap that was revealed around two years ago showing that the V6 powered R8 will be launched in 2018.

We do think that the automaker really planned on building one, but they had probably changed their mind and decided that they would instead keep the V10 model that produces 540 horsepower as the base version of the mid-engined supercar.

2019 Ford Fusion Facelift is not sleeker than its predecessor

Ford have recently been dropping hints about a new Ford Fusion, and what I mean is that they will soon reveal the redesigned sedan for 2020. But even before this, they are already considering a minor upgrade for the mid-sized 2019 model year. Some of the more noticeable upgrades include visual cues on the outside like a new grille and LED driving lamps up front, as well as a new trunk lid panel and LED tail lights in the rear.

As for technology, the Ford Fusion has now been given Ford’s driver assist systems, which they had just rebranded as Co-Pilot360 earlier this month. Now, this comes standard throughout the Fusion line.

Having said that, even the base model Fusion S will be equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, auto high-beam headlights, and a rear backup camera. If you want to opt for something more premium, then there is also the Co-Pilot360 Assist. This adds adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, voice activated navigation with Sirius XM Traffic and Travel Link.

VW will soon reveal the five seater Atlas Concept at 2018 New York Auto Show

In recent news, we have been hearing that Volkswagen’s next plan for their SUV lineup is a two-row, five seater version of the Atlas. The automaker then confirmed that the model will be built at their Chattanooga, Tennessee plant and that we should expect a concept version of it at the 2018 New York Auto Show later this month. At the moment of writing, the automaker has not given the new model a name, so it currently is being referred to as an “Atlas variant”.

Volkswagen’s desire to offer a wider range of SUVs in the US market was never a secret to the public. In fact, there had been reports about this late last year. In addition to that, we also heard during Chicago Auto Show that Volkswagen is planning on adding two more SUVs to join the Atlas and the Tiguan.

Now, speaking of the new VW SUV, it will probably have the same base as the Atlas and the Tiguan. Meaning that it will also sit on the MQB modular chassis. The company also added that this particular model was specifically designed and engineered to fit the United States specs. When you look closely at the teaser image, the design language simply matches the regular Atlas, with its wide horizontal grille and rectangular headlights on both ends.

It was during this year’s Chicago Auto Show that Lexus, as part of the celebration of its 10 years of performance, put on display unique versions of its high-powered models, the RC F and the GS F. The brand however is planning to showcase a limited edition RC that can deliver more than the V8-powered models.

Lexus revealed that it will be rolling out during the 2018 New York Auto Show its RC F SPORT Black Line Special Edition. This appearance package will be available for both the RC 300 and the 350 F Sport. It will come with two new choices for exterior paint which are Atomic Silver and Caviar. The brand also revealed that it will be making only 650 units worldwide.

In addition to the new colors, the gloss exterior paint will be contrasting with the standard matte black wheels paired to the brake calipers which can come in either black or orange. Instead of the usual chrome trim, this Special Edition will now have black chrome accents surrounding the grille as well as the windows.

After lifting the veil off the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Japanese luxury carmaker is getting ready to take the wraps off the final production version of the third-generation sports utility vehicle at the upcoming 2018 New York Auto Show at the end of this month.

According to Acura, the actual reveal of the production version of the 2019 Acura RDX is set for March 28, 2018. Along with the regular SUV, the Japanese premium carmaker will also be unveiling the all-new 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec, a sporty looking variant of the utility. Acura will commence sales of the next generation of the RDX in mid-2018.

The third-generation 2019 RDX represents the first time that an all-new Acura model employs the brand’s latest design language, which will also influence the carmaker’s new generation vehicles. The 2019 iteration of the SUV will be powered by a new 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo engine, which sends power to the Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system through a segment-first 10-speed transmission. These elements are complemented by the NSX-inspired Integrated Dynamics System,

Hyundai has been sharing a number of teasers and spy shots of the fourth generation Hyundai Santa Fe. But on February 6th, it finally revealed press images of the said model. It now looks like a brand new car from the ground up, and is a bit of a departure from its predecessor. It’s mainly because the SUV now has a bolder exterior, as well as an interesting front fascia that features a set of slim upper lights like that of the Kona and the more eccentric looking Nexo hydrogen fuel-cell crossover.

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe now has a new “cascading grille” up front, which we first saw on the i30. The new grille really will call anyone’s attention, and is even surrounded by a secondary set of squarer lights that give the SUV its unique look, therefore making it stand out from its rivals in its segment.

Right now, the only images we have of the Santa Fe only show its exterior, but we could already see how prominent it looks - with the upper character line that runs from the front to the rear, and the more angular wheel arches that give the side profile a more rugged appearance. And for the car’s rear, we only still have the official design sketch that we saw from last month.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is scheduled to make its debut in late March 2018, and by now, we should already be getting teasers of the said model, and we are. In fact, they have already revealed spy shots of the fourth generation model, which shows us none other than the side profile of the revamped SUV (at least on the first photo they shared).

It seems to have a more prominent upper character line now extending from the slender Kona-like headlights to the sweptback taillights. In the first photo, we cannot really see the new grille, but it looks like the more corporate cascading grille in a larger size.

Weeks after the initial spy shots have been published, Hyundai now gives us a better idea of the Santa Fe’s design by sharing a sketch of it. This time, we see it up front. And the first thing we would say is that it is definitely sportier in character compared to its predecessor - from the LED headlights that have been placed lower, to the wider central airdam as well and bumper cladding and skid plates. The wheel arches are also slightly larger now, while boasting a new set of alloy wheels. The windows will have chrome borders, and the rearview mirrors have a sportier design.

Toyota hopes to target a new market with a new crossover concept dubbed as the Toyota FT-4X. The company says that this car is perfect for those who love to be outdoors, but not necessarily hardcore off-roaders.

The FT-4X, at first glance would remind you of the FJ cruiser, with their similar body type and paint job, except this one has more utilitarian touches. This was designed by the people behind Toyota’s Calty Design Research center, with inspirations from Land Cruiser’s FJ40 and pickups - with the aim to appeal to people with a growing urge to escape.

Future Toyota Four-Wheel Drive Crossover is what FT-4X really stands for. The designers think of this concept as a hybrid, considering the fact that it is small enough to fit an urban environment. At the same time, it has the ability to go off-road for an off the pavement drive. During the development phase, the FT-4X was guided by a philosophy of “rugged charm”. Five attributes were in mind: design simplicity, inherent capability, durability, lineage, and charm, which the FT-4X does embody.

A number of customers generally want to drive a simple car, preferably something that is affordable. This is why a lot of drivers want to have the Toyota Yaris. For the 2017 New York Auto Show, the brand revealed that it will be unveiling the 2018 Yaris which has some features on its exterior enhanced.

The biggest change is the front section where the small parts in the grille that connect the headlamps are no longer used. Instead there is now the body color trim that has been placed on the lower portion of the black grille. Further by having a pointed nose and the sweeping assemblies of the headlamp, the Yaris gets a profile that is more aggressive.

The rear section has been enhanced as well and while it has a better look compared to the previous version, it may not be that impressive for some. Both the hatch and the fascia in this section mirror the open-mouth style seen in the front. Having a new style as well are the tail lights which match the layout of this section. While the brand said that the redesign was aimed at giving this model a more athletic look, some customers may not immediately see this.

Buick unveils the latest 2018 Enclave at the 2017 New York Auto Show featuring versatile functionality, spaciousness and the latest technology. The midsize luxury SUV now has more space at the third row, an improved towing capability, various safety technologies, and a range of useful interior features. Inside, it boasts of premium materials which enhances the whole experience of cruising with this all-new seven-passenger midsize luxury SUV.

Despite its slimmer size and shorter height, the new Enclave is more spacious on the inside. The standard leg room on the third row offers 5.6 more inches compared to that of the Acura MDX, 4.5 inches more compared to the Audi Q7, and almost 3 inches more compared to the Infinity QX60. And compared to the outgoing model, the new Enclave comes with a longer wheelbase and tighter (by 1.4 feet) turning circle, contributing to better maneuverability.

The new Enclave has a seating capacity good for seven passengers, and provides 10 percent more cubic feet of cargo space (behind the first row) compared to the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and Infiniti QX60. It even boasts of increased towing capacity, allowing up to 5,000 pounds of weight – that’s almost about the same weight as a typical 21-foot sport boat!

Efforts to save the world from destruction have ushered the advent of more eco-friendly alternatives for everyday items, reaching various sectors including the automotive world. It has become a trend amongst automakers involved in this so-called “green revolution” to offer multiple eco-friendly powertrains for one model, giving customers the freedom of choice – to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions or to keep the traditional fuel-powered engine on standby in case the electric-powered engine acts up.

There’s Hyundai’s Ioniq offered in full electric, plug-in hybrid, and gas-electric hybrid versions, and then there’s the Toyota Prius with an available plug-in version. Recently, we have received more details about Honda’s latest green onslaught – the new three-pronged Clarity line-up. Let’s take a closer look at the Japanese automaker’s latest attempt to dominate the green car world.

In December 2016, Honda launched the hydrogen-powered Clarity Fuel Cell and we’ve seen its performance. Now, Honda released more information about its siblings: the battery-powered Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid. The PHEV has the capability to deliver 42 miles of all-electric range; is it worth the wait? Well, it only depends on how you feel about this information. Honda aims to sell 75,000 units in the U.S. alone for the first four model years of the Clarity vehicles.

Audi of America officially launched at the 2017 New York International Auto Show its newest brand, the Audi Sport. Formerly known as quattro GmbH, this new brand is founded on a long and highly successful motorsport tradition. It actually goes all the way back to the 1930s and started with Auto Union’s now iconic “Silver Arrow.” This model then was considered as the world standard when it comes to the racing tracks.

By the 1980s, the company introduced the Audi Quattro and with its permanent all-wheel drive, it managed to perform well in a number of rally competitions. When 2000 came into the picture, Audi fitted its models with new combustion engines and put in new lighting technologies. This resulted in the company winning at Le Mans with a total of 13 victories.

This new brand is expected to display that best of track-tested performance from Audi. Customers should expect quality, innovation, and excellent balance when it comes to driving dynamics. With the launching, the brand revealed as well that a total of 8 new models are slated to be released in the U.S. market over the next 2 years.

With the recently concluded 2017 New York Auto Show displaying hordes of muscle and sports cars, we are in awe at how many new vehicles will be soon swooping in and out of our roads. The newly unveiled high powered American muscle - 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon also graced the halls of the Auto Show with its 2.7 L supercharger that produces up to 808 hp. But hoping to steal the spotlight from the Dodge Challenger SRT is the latest vehicle of the Trans Am: the 2017 Trans Am Super Duty.

The Pontiac label was put to its shallow grave after General Motors axed the brand in 2010 as a result of financial dilemma. But now the Pontiac's classic muscle car is given a second life in the form of the 2017 Trans Am 455 Super Duty. The previous Trans Am vehicles were modelled from the 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro and General Motor's Zeta chassis, now the newly unveiled Trans Am 455 Super Duty is probably the first unit ever produced that is molded around the sixth gen Chevy Camaro and the lightweight Alpha chassis.

The biggest asset of this beast of a vehicle is its 455 cubic inch (7.4 L) variant of the GM's recent generation V LT1 V8 engine equipped with a Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger that produces up to 14 psi of boost- which has 0.5 less psi compared to the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Trans Am Worldwide further revealed that the engine of the 455 Super Duty was made in partnership with a still unnamed premier NASCAR engine builder hailing from Martinsville, Virginia. Turns out, our guesses would directly point to the Arrington Performance by the very own NASCAR racer and team owner Joey Arrington. A cold air intake and purely ceramic coated headers, with 3.0 inch of exhaust powers contribute to an impressive 1,000 hp and 1,046 lb-ft of torque: a 160 hp and 276 lb-ft more than the Demon's performance on gas and 192 hp and 329 lb-ft more than the Demon's execution on 91 octane.

Gracing the 2017 New York Auto Show is the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir – the brand’s very first entry in its new Avenir luxury sub-brand. This latest generation of Buick’s crossover vehicle comes with a sleeker look, compared to vehicles in the same class.

The Enclave Avenir has taken some features from recent Buick concepts such as the Avenir Concept car and integrating it as its own. Here, we find a combination of its mesh grille and chrome wings which serve as a support for the Buick tri-shield emblem. Another standard feature is a pair of LED headlights featuring automatic high beams.

Compared to the outgoing model, the 2018 Enclave is now taller and longer. Its height has increased by 2.4 inches (61 millimeters) or a total of 204.3 inches (5.189 meters), and its wheelbase is made longer so that it is now at 120.9 inches (3.071 meters) – a 2-inch (51-millimeter) increase from the current generation’s. However, this increase in size does not affect its weight as the 2018 Enclave is lighter than the current generation – the base model’s curb weight is at 4,358 pounds (1,977 kilograms), which is actually 366 pounds (166 kg) lighter.

Acura, a Japanese based company founded 31 years ago, has been building luxurious and high performance cars. Many share the opinion that the brand has been attempting a balance between luxury and output and not really succeeding every time. At times, it may seem ambiguous where the company wants to focus.

Out with the old, and in with the new. At the recent 2017 New York Auto Show, Acura unveiled the 2018 TLX, just the second car after the MDX to adopt the “Precision Crafted Performance Design”. This model actually made its debut in a private event days before its official launch at the auto show.

The premium sedan comes with a more functional dashboard software similar to the recent Honda Accord. Apart from the having a quicker response, the new TLX is equipped with a dual screen new interface that includes a seven-inch central touchscreen, instead of the confusing design that the old model had. The software is also compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and AcuraWatch.

This may be the sports car that will suit Batman's taste and can possibly replace the Bat mobile. Cue the Batman soundtrack; let's feast our eyes on Maserati's new creation: the Limited Edition black trim package dubbed the "Ghibli Nerissimo".

Using all black on a vehicle is becoming a bigger trend nowadays, with the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan offering a Midnight Package and Chevrolet also competing with its Midnight Edition Trucks. Now the Italian automaker powerhouse Maserati is following suit with its rival releases and it has decided to jump on the bandwagon with its Ghibli Nerissimo package, which directly translates to "extremely black" in English. The newly unveiled Black Beast awesomely contrasted with the bright halls of the 2017 New York Auto Show, getting a whole lot of attention from interested spectators.

The limited edition package will not only be on the 345 hp Ghibli, but is also made available with the 404 hp Ghibli S and Ghibli S Q4 models. All sports car with the Nerissimo package will feature a sports steering wheel, adaptive dampers, shift paddles, 12 way power front seats, a blind spot monitor, rear and front parking sensors, and a remote starting system.

It looks like 2018 is going to be a very busy year for Subaru. Not only did the Japanese automaker have its name changed early this month (from Fuji Heavy Industries to Subaru Corporation), it has also made quite a bit of updating for its current lineup. Joining the updated models such as the Legacy and Crosstrek, is the 2018 Subaru Outback.

The Outback is Subaru’s most popular high-riding wagon, so that the upcoming 2018 model year will come back fresher and better. The 2018 Subaru Outback made its debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show and is expected to hit dealerships this summer. That fast, eh!

Just like the new Legacy and Crosstrek, the 2018 Outback features a more chiseled appearance – a look that Subaru aims to achieve for its models. The more angular look at the corners of its front end is formed because its headlights now have sharper corners resulting to the Outbacks’ “more rugged appearance”. The front fascia of the 2018 Outback is restructured so that it now features larger grille openings, with its sculpting highlighting the crossover’s huge fog lights. Also, it features a new front cladding which Subaru claims, improves protection from mud and stones on off-road trips. All these modifications however did not change the car’s overall ground clearance, remaining at only 8.7 inches or 221 millimeters.

Just recently, Honda released the new 2017 Civic Si but it seems like the updates are a bit underwhelming for the fans. It has been a while since it was reported that the Si will be powered by the same 1.5-liter turbocharged engine used in the Civic line. Everyone began to expect that it will be the “fastest, most powerful Si” (as per Honda’s claim) – but think again. If you’re thinking that powerful is synonymous to super-powered Si, then you better not get your hopes up just yet.

So, what did Honda mean when they said “most powerful”? It is actually a reference to the engine’s capability of producing a maximum of 192 lb.-ft. of torque, much more than the usual Si’s peak torque (i.e. the last Si’s 174 lb.-ft.) but with only 205 horsepower. This may be quite disappointing for the Civic Si, but at least peak power is achieved at 5,700 rpm or 1,200 revs more than the outgoing model, while maximum torque comes in at 2,100 rpm ‘til around 5,000 rpm – which is actually quite decent, considering it is 70 percent of the engine’s rev range. The 2017 Civic Si only comes with a six-speed manual transmission, but in theory, it seems like it will take “less rowing” to keep the driving experience quite exciting.

The peak numbers may not be that impressive as we all expected it to be. On a positive note, the low and mid-range power levels, where majority of drivers spend their motoring time, will now become livelier. The new Civic Si has a more rigid body featuring dual-pinion adaptive electric power steering, sport-tuned suspension, an adaptive damper system, 12.3-inch front brakes, and 235/40 R18 rubber wheels with optional performance tires. Despite this, the new Civic Si is significantly lighter than the outgoing model. To cope with both power and steering duties, the front tires is aided by a helical limited-slip differential.

Mitsubishi Outlander is the Japanese automaker’s best-selling model. For 2018, the Outlander Sport will freshen up – both inside and out – to balance it out with the new Eclipse Cross.

Earlier this year, Mitsubishi introduced the Outlander Sport at the Chicago Auto Show with what they called a “special edition”; but wasn’t that successful in the “special” part. Now, for 2017 New York Auto Show, the Japanese automaker re-introduces the 2018 model year by polishing it yet again. Let’s see what changed over the weeks after the Chicago Auto Show.

If you do not look closely (or for some, refer to a “before and after” photo), these changes may be too minimal to be caught right away. For the sake of those who want to know more about the changes, we will be enumerating them one by one.
