Ford's Looking to an Electrified Future and the Brand's Next Move Just Might Surprise you

Ford’s Looking to an Electrified Future and the Brand’s Next Move Just Might Surprise you

The king of the jungle has decided to adopt electrification before it sinks into oblivion

Ford has confirmed plans to build a fully electric F-Series pickup in a bid to protect the truck against competitors like Tesla and Rivian. It was only a matter of time before this announcement was made, so it’s not all that surprising, but it has come a little earlier than expected. With electrification being the only option in the future, even the best of the best will have to succumb to the pressure and finally give in.

If You're a Fan of Matt LeBlanc on Top Gear, You Better Not Miss a Single Episode of the Show's 26th Season

If You’re a Fan of Matt LeBlanc on Top Gear, You Better Not Miss a Single Episode of the Show’s 26th Season

The BBC drops the first trailer of LeBlanc’s last season on the show

Top Gear’s 26th season is coming up soon, and ahead of the show’s launch, which could happen sometime in late February or early March, the BBC has released a new trailer of what we can expect from Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid in their last full season as the show’s main hosts. The first trailer is what you’d expect from a Top Gear trailer. There’s plenty of intriguing action involving all three hosts, including what looks to be a fun polo match with tuk-tuks serving as substitutes for horses. The trailer also shows the three hosts in a number of competitive environments, and, of course, there are the cars, of which there are many delightful ones in the trailer, including the Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, and Porsche Panamera.

After 15 Years We Just Might See and a New Nissan Frontier on the U.S. Market

After 15 Years We Just Might See and a New Nissan Frontier on the U.S. Market

We hope Nissan is not tricking us by calling a facelift "new"

Sometimes it’s baffling to see automakers ignore cars in its line up that need a little care and attention to become the cash cows. The Frontier is a classic example of that. Midsize trucks sell well on the market today, but Nissan has been lousy with development for the Frontier. However, things might change soon as a new Frontier may hit the roads very soon.

Mahindra Marazzo Received a Surprisingly Positive Reaction at the Detroit Auto Show

Mahindra Marazzo Received a Surprisingly Positive Reaction at the Detroit Auto Show

The MPV made a mark when some big names failed

Mahindra came to Detroit with its Multi-Purpose Vehicle called the Marazzo. The minivan was seen hiding behind the Roxor at the Mahindra stall at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, but it still managed to catch plenty of attention. The Marazzo was manufactured for the Indian market, and the company has no plans to sell it in the U.S. So, why are we gushing about it?

Kia Could Leverage the 2020 Telluride with SEMA-Inspired Accessories but it Could Go a Step Further

Kia Could Leverage the 2020 Telluride with SEMA-Inspired Accessories but it Could Go a Step Further

Wonder why automakers did not think of this before?

Kia brought its flagship SUV, the Telluride, at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this week. The production model of the SUV did not grab a lot of attention; perhaps because we had already seen it at the New York Fashion Week and SEMA fitted with a cacophony of off-road accessories. However, what actually raised our eyebrows is that Kia is actually planning to offer something on similar lines as an off-road-ready variant itself.

It looks like the right move, but the competition already beat ‘em to the punch

Big, luxurious SUVs and crossovers are as popular as ever these days, and the latest Cadillac XT6 looks like a solid fit for customer demands. However, there are still lingering questions that have us wondering if Cadillac is struggling to keep up with the times.

Shady Toyota Dealership Buys that Mint-Condition 1994 Supra; Relists it at $500,000

Shady Toyota Dealership Buys that Mint-Condition 1994 Supra; Relists it at $500,000

That’s as much as 10 brand-new Toyota Supras!

The launch of the fifth-generation Supra is feeding into the hype of the previous generation Supra too, apparently. A 1994 example of the fourth generation recently sold on Bring A Trailer for a ludicrous $121,000 and then quickly emerged on the website of Chicago Northside Toyota with a senseless price tag of $500,000.

The new GR Supra seems to help the old Porsche-beating Supra gain momentum even more than before in terms of the sums of money people ask for pristine examples. With only 7,000 miles on the odometer, this particular red model sold on January 3rd on Bring A Trailer and, the other day, the guys at Carscoops noticed the same car for sale at a Chicago Toyota dealer for half a million bucks or $7,902 per month for 60 months. Since then, the said dealer has taken down the downright insulting listing from its website but it still beggars belief that someone thought this would be a sensible thing to do

2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR

2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR

The Golf GTI TCR Is The Most Powerful GTI You Can Buy Right Now, But Not For the U.S.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR is a hardcore GTI focused at amateur track day enthusiasts, and it’s heavily inspired by one thing - the TCR competition. No, it is not a race car, but a production, roadworthy hot hatch that spruced out of a four year long TCR competition. Volkswagen has been part of the TCR touring car series since 2016 with the awesome GTI based racer.

Since the inaugural TCR season in 2015, the TCR touring car series saw a number of cool entries. Including the Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, the Subaru WRX TCR, and, as you may have noticed if you followed our coverage of the 2019 Detroit Motor Show, the Hyundai Veloster N TCR. It is quite an impressive competition that already gave birth to some cool cars. Like the N badged Hyundais for example.

Back on the streets, the new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR will fight its fight against the Hyundai i30 N, the Honda Civic Type R (also in the TCR competition), the Renault Megane RS and the RS Trophy, among many others.

2019 McLaren 600LT Spider

2019 McLaren 600LT Spider

For when you want to have wind blowing in your hair out on the race track

The McLaren 600LT Spider is one of the few drop-top sports cars with barely any compromises over the coupe. It’s just 110 pounds heavier than the fixed-head version but, besides that, it offers the same 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque from the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. The catch? It costs almost $50,000 more than the 570S Spider that McLaren used as a starting point for the LT.

After teasing us with a video just a few days ago, McLaren finally released the official images of the mighty 600LT Spider. Again, LT stands for ’Long-Tail,’ but there is no long tail on this car to speak of, it’s merely as a pale homage to the Le Mans class-winning McLaren F1 GTR from 22 years ago. What you do get, though, is a highly competent track beast with the added benefit of being able to allow the elements to take their toll on you when the roof’s down.

If you like what you’re hearing you should rush to pre-order one because McLaren said that the production would be limited with "build slots scheduled around other Sports and Super Series models." Production is said to commence in March and will go on for a year. The only problem with the 600LT Spider is, frankly, the existence of the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider with its 710 horsepower, 568 pound-feet of torque that’s likely quicker although it also costs a lot more as well.

Cadillac Proves Performance Sedans Aren't Dead as the 2019 CT6-V Sells Out in a Few Hours

Cadillac Proves Performance Sedans Aren’t Dead as the 2019 CT6-V Sells Out in a Few Hours

Perhaps the sedan’s 550-horsepower V-8 engine had something to do with it

Sedans may not be as hot as they once were, but don’t tell that to the Cadillac CT6-V. The high-performance variant of the upscale CT6 sedan sold out within hours of opening the books for preorders, proving that, at least in some cases, the demise of sedans isn’t as bad as we think it is. Cadillac opened preorders for the CT6-V on the morning of January 14. By 2:30 P.M., all 275 units that were earmarked for the U.S. market were scooped up, leaving those who didn’t act quickly enough empty-handed. The Cadillac CT6-V is expected to arrive sometime in the middle of the year at a price that starts at $89,785. Not that it matters because if you didn’t get one, it’s highly unlikely that Cadillac is going to launch a second wave of models anytime soon.

A 7:40 Nurburgring Lap Time For The Toyota Supra? Toyota Thinks It Can Be Done

A 7:40 Nurburgring Lap Time For The Toyota Supra? Toyota Thinks It Can Be Done

Is it even worth it to post a lap time in the Nurburgring if it’s not going to break any records?

The Toyota Supra has been dissected and prodded over in recent days like no debuting car in recent memory. It’s fitting, then, that the sports coupe is still generating headlines, this time regarding the possibility of a Nurburgring lap time and Toyota’s expectations on what time it can clock if it ended up doing a lap around the famous race track. Apparently, the Japanese automaker believes that the Supra could turn in a lap time of 7:40, even if it ends up running into its speed limiter on the track’s long straight. Whether Toyota actually has plans to bring the Supra to the ‘Ring is still unclear, but if it did, it should be a spectacle in it of itself, even if the incentives of actually running a lap aren’t that great.

The 2020 BMW 7 Series Intelligent Personal Assistant Is Equal Parts Creepy and Cool

You forgot to use your turn signal again, Dave

As my wife will be quick to tell you, I can occasionally get a little paranoid when it comes to modern digital technology. I don’t like being tracked. I don’t like how cameras are everywhere and always turned on. I don’t like anything that even carries a whiff of 1984. As such, the Intelligent Personal Assistant in the new 2020 BMW 7 Series makes me nervous. However, at the same time, the geek in me thinks it’s pretty damn cool.
