The newest car to enter the Kia lineup is one that is a departure from what we normally expect Kia models to be. Kia has grown and developed over the years to be a brand that offers us a variety of great features, shows off improved looks and comes to us with the equipment we want to enjoy on the road. This brand is full of quality cars and SUVs that give you a great value and plenty of fuel mileage while also being reliable and engaging on the road. This all makes for a lineup of impressive family cars and SUVs which left room for what Kia is ready to offer.
Most of us look toward gasoline powered vehicles as the models we choose when it comes time for our family ride. Whether it’s a FWD sedan, a minivan or an SUV we tend to gravitate toward those that tend to give us the fuel mileage and price we’re looking for, but maybe the long haul is what you should consider. The history of diesel engines has been that these vehicles are typically more apt to last longer and give us the power and efficiency we want over time. One model in particular is the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel which is perfect for you and your entire family.
The return of the classic muscle car has been part of the imagination of the automotive industry in the US for the past several years. We’ve seen all three major automakers move toward vehicles that are more alike with the models of several decades ago to give us the look and feel that we’ve loved in the past along with what we want to enjoy on the road. The Dodge Challenger is certainly one of the most classic looking muscle cars that have been reinvigorated on the market of today. This car continues to provide us what we want to enjoy on the road.
When we get behind the wheel to drive out on the roads in our area we have certain expectations. If it’s raining, snowing or icy out we expect to see more accidents than normal and need to take our time as we travel on the roads. On sunny days when the roads are dry we expect people around us to drive like normal and be able to handle the challenge of being on the road with care. The desire is that we can get where we want to go on time when we’re out on the roads, especially if everything is normal.
When you live in some areas of the US where snow and ice are a traditional part of each year and the winter months there are some driving experiences that you know you need to be cautious of and wary of. One is having a beater of a car that is meant for the winter months. There’s nothing wrong, in fact its encouraged, to have a cheap car that you don’t mind getting beat around on the road when you have winter driving to do, but you need to know what you’re getting when you buy a cheap car. I’ve written a few tips below, but if you want something more in-depth, I definitely recommend listening to this Lehto’s Law podcast.
If you’re a fan of Mercedes-AMG, you might think everything they build is awesome, and for the most part you’d be right, but this is something completely different. We’ve seen companies build vehicles that cross barriers and blend technologies together. These “frankencars” have become some of the most admired vehicles that have been built in a mad scientist manner with components that were probably never meant to be put together, but somehow work so well together. It seems the entire automotive market looks at cars and what they do to simple say “how can that work for us” and then they figure it out.
The Acura brand often gets overlooked for brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Lexus, but it shouldn’t. Born from Honda, the Acura models that are offered have been feature filled, easy to drive cars that offer you the dependability and activity you want to enjoy. The RLX is a car that is the top of the lineup for the Acura brand to give you an impressive sedan to drive with AWD and the look and feel you’ll love to enjoy in a car that isn’t as showy as the other brands but soldiers on as one of the best in its class.
You might think the new Ford Raptor that’s coming back for 2017 would be enough for everyone to enjoy and it certainly will be for most of us. A truck that has a V6 and produces 450 horsepower is quite an achievement and the way Ford has added off road bits, larger wheels and a dramatic appearance should make this truck the perfect built where no one is trying to make it bigger, better and stronger. Fortunately, we live in the US and we never settle for anything being enough when there’s no reason not to add more wherever you can.
For the past few years there have been several Chinese companies that have been interested and researching how to make an EV that can go faster. Some investors from this area have put their money into American companies while others have developed on their own. It seems we now have an EV that is actually faster than the Tesla Model S P100D. If that’s the case then this new model has taken down the EV giant, Tesla, which won’t be kept down for long. Let’s take a look at what this new car is.
Over the years there have been a lot of transitions for the auto industry, most of the time these changes start with the midsize sedan segment. This has been historically the most competitive segment of vehicles on the road to give us excellent vehicles to enjoy driving. At some points certain brands didn’t change as quickly as they could have and the models almost got left behind to be replaced by other versions. Thankfully Chevrolet has finally found a way to make the Malibu more stylish to not only catch up with the rest of the midsized sedan market, but surpass the rest of the group.
