Lincoln

Lincoln looks set to mimic Ford’s on-going shift away from sedans. The move makes sense on the surface, but analysts warn the luxury brand needs to keep some low-riding models in its portfolio. The publication learned Ford’s Hermosillo, Mexico, factory will stop manufacturing the MKZ in late 2020 or early 2021, and it pointed out …

Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet

The first units of Volkswagen’s T-Roc Cabriolet began rolling down the line at the automaker’s Osnabrück plant today. VW has already invested a “high double-digit million euro amount” to upgrade the facilities for the convertible crossover’s production. What’s surprising is that company officials at the ceremonial launch pledged to invest “in the site on a …

Audi-e-tron-Sportback

Against the backdrop of its roadmap towards electrification, Audi AG is planning upfront expenditure of €12 billion solely for electric mobility – more than ever before. Audi has planned a total amount of approximately €37 billion for research and development expenditure and investment in property, plant and equipment over the next five years. The successful …

2020 Mazda CX-30

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 has its work cut out for it. The small crossover will have to pick up the slack of the Mazda3 sedan and hatchback, which have seen sales dip more than 20 percent through October. In addition to positioning the CX-30 as one of its volume models, Mazda also hopes it can …

2020 Toyota Avalon

The 2020 Toyota Avalon isn’t the sleepy sedan you may think it is, and that’s a good thing. Despite its long reputation as a nap-worthy vehicle, the styling isn’t exactly sleep-inducing anymore and the driving experience is far more involving. Even if it had more competitors, though, we’re confident that the well-rounded Avalon would still …

Chevy Colorado ZR2

Think the new 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, the midsize pickup truck’s hardcore off-road trim, is impressive? Its primary changes from before include less styling—seriously, Chevy just straight-up made most of the front end part of the grille or intake. Underneath, it still has the same lifted suspension, beefy tires, and 4×4 equipment to chase goats …

Infiniti QX60 SUV

The Infiniti QX60 is the brand’s most popular model. The three-row SUV is a favorite family hauler thanks to its good-looking design and spacious interior. The front of the new QX60 will sport an updated grille that’s very similar to the Monograph Concept’s. The grille is more square than the current QX60 grille, giving the …

2020 Mazda Cx-9

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is here, and it’s even more enticing than the 2019 model year SUV. It’s not a full redesign, but Mazda shook up the features list to make it more competitive with other three-row crossovers. Most notable (arguably) of all changes comes from a small increase in torque — the 2.5-liter turbocharged …

2020 Ford Escape

The new 2020 Ford Escape takes a huge step forward in the competitive compact crossover market with a new platform, styling and powertrains. It’s now being built on Ford’s new modular architecture, and is the first vehicle riding on it to come to the United States. Despite being slightly bigger than the Escape it replaces, the 2020 model drives more …

Hyundai

Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to invest 41 trillion won ($34.6 billion) in mobility and other auto technologies by 2025, part of which will be directed to an ambitious effort to become more competitive in self-driving cars that has also received government backing. The plan, which Hyundai said encompasses autonomous, connected and electric vehicles as well …
