The 2019 Ram 1500 North Edition is All Geared Up for Winter
2020 Lincoln Aviator
First introduced for the 2003 model year, the Lincoln Aviator was initially offered as a luxury sport utility vehicle for the mid-size segment. After failing to meet sales expectations, Lincoln axed the nameplate in 2005 after just a few years in production. Now, however, as nationwide SUV sales continue onwards into the stratosphere, the Aviator makes its triumphant second-generation return for the 2020 model year, slotting in between the Nautilus and the standard wheelbase Navigator in Lincoln’s lineup. The latest model offers elegant styling, a top-notch interior layout, oodles of comfort, the latest tech, and a super torquey hybrid engine option.
Rumors of a 2020 BMW X8 Swirl Yet Again, Could Be An Ultra-Luxurious SUV
BMW just introduced the new 8 Series earlier this year, and in doing so, resurrected the 8 Series nameplate after roughly two decades on the shelf. Fans already adore the new luxury-laden grand tourer, but now it’s looking like BMW might apply some of its 8’er gloss to its SUV line as well.
14 Things You Have to Know about the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD
The official debut of the new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD is expected in February 2019 - probably at the Chicago Auto Show. Chevy, however, grew some balls and actually revealed first photos of the 2020 Silverado HD. Bask in the greatness of the new 2020 Silverado HD. Or don’t! The design turned out to be one of the most astoundingly courageous styling experiments in the industry. The front end looks so much “out there” that, from the looks of things, it seems that Chevy has done too much. GM designers are probably reliving the nightmare that they had with the introduction of the latest Camaro. Remember, that one received an “overnight” update after some massive hate from the whole freaking world.
The new Silverado HD, however, had to be as mad as it is.
"We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck," Brian Izard, the pickup’s lead exterior designer, said. "The result is a truck that looks like a piece of heavy machinery with modern, chiseled finishes and customer-focused details."
Well, it certainly looks like a piece of machinery, but that is only one of its traits (to some alluring, to many incomprehensive). While information on the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado is still largely hidden, I managed to find some cool facts that will make the new 2020 Silverado HD closer to you.
Meet the 2018 Koenigsegg KNC Regera, The World’s First Naked Carbon Vehicle
Koenigsegg is no stranger to technological innovation. It comes as no surprise, then, that the Swedish automaker is at the forefront of naked carbon fiber technology, becoming the first automaker in the world to create a car that’s finished entirely out of naked carbon fiber. Koenigsegg has even created a name for it: Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or “KNC” for short. By Koenigsegg’s admission, the process of creating KNC took years to come together. What began as applications on wheels, wings, splitters, and steering wheels has evolved into a full-blown treatment on an entire car, which Koenigsegg calls the KNC Regera. The one-off creation isn’t for sale because someone who lives in Switzerland already owns it.
2020 Hyundai Palisade
The Hyundai Palisade is the new flagship of the range, so it needs to be very good. It has a distinctive face that sets it apart from other Hyundai models and clearly can’t be mistaken for another brand. However, it’s not its striking fascia put on an otherwise familiar big SUV shape that’s important here, but the amount of room inside and how pleasant it is to travel in.
With seating for up to eight people, the Palisade offers one more than some competitors, and if you fold down all of its seats, you can get a pretty van-like loading bay. It also looks and feels well appointed inside, with no dramatic design touches - It’s just clear, functional, and minimalist.
It needs to face tough adversaries that have several generations of models behind them and, with it being a completely new nameplate, it may struggle a bit. Its exterior appearance blends a funky face with a more traditional overall aesthetic, but the interior may feel reminiscent to what you may see in a high-end German brand like Mercedes, Audi, or BMW, and its rivals will struggle to match the same feel inside their cabins.
2020 BMW 8 Series Convertible
Unveiled for the 2019 model year, the modern BMW 8 Series revives the iconic nameplate that the German firm produced from 1990 to 1999. Unlike its predecessor, the new 8 Series also spawned a convertible version to tackle the drop-top variant of the luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.
After nearly two decades on the shelf, the BMW 8 Series is back, and it’s once again looking to head the BMW lineup with sporty grand touring luxury as a replacement for the outgoing 6 Series. Revived in both racing and full production form at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Bavarians kicked things off with a hardtop coupe iteration, but this new flagship also spawned a convertible ahead of the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Does it have what it takes to give the S-Class Cabriolet a run for its money?

Check Out This Nice Demo of the 2019 BMW X7’s Third-Row Seating
A BMW with 3-row seating is a big deal. It’s a big SUV, but a big deal in terms of market incursions as well. The 2019 BMW X7 is the first Beemer to have such an arrangement. Ok, the first after the BMW X5, which has an option for an additional two seats. That one, however, had rather cramped third-row seating. Now the X7, with all of its massive size, can fit two regulars in the third row. Why the heck am I telling you all this?
Well, BMWBlog revealed a cool video filmed on the BMW stand at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show with a 6.3 foot Dany getting into the X7’s third row of seats. He did fit.
Hyundai Goes Big Baller With The 2020 Palisade SUV
Hyundai is, once again, betting big on the SUV market with the arrival of the 2020 Palisade SUV. Named after the Pacific Palisade islands in California, the Palisade is the latest example of Hyundai’s commitment to bolstering its crossover and SUV lineups. Not that it needs to because it already boasts popular sellers like the Tucson, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe XL. But, bigger is better, at least in Hyundai’s eyes, and the Palisade is huge all the way around. The Hyundai Palisade is scheduled to launch in the U.S. sometime in the summer of 2019. Perfect timing, then, wouldn’t you say?
The Chevrolet Silverado Was The Star of a Recent Detroit Red Wings Game For The Wrong Reasons
Chevrolet had its hands on the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show launching the all-new Blazer. It was, by all accounts, a successful debut for the crossover. Unfortunately, one of Chevy’s most popular models - the Silverado pickup truck — didn’t have as good of a time 2,300 miles away in Detroit when it inexplicably went limp while in the middle of a low-key marketing stunt at the Little Caesars Arena during an NHL game between the St. Louis Blues and the hometown Detroit Red Wings.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator, Lincoln’s First Hybrid SUV, Is Impressively Powerful
Lincoln launched its first hybrid car, the MKZ Hybrid, in 2011, but it took the luxury brand another seven years to develop a plug-in SUV. The electrified hauler arrived at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show as part of the Aviator lineup, which will replace the MKT. And it’s impressively powerful with 450 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque on tap.
The Hyundai Palisade is Here to Best the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and Nissan Pathfinder
Hyundai is really trying to muscle in on the segment dominated by the likes of the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot with the 2020 Palisade SUV. It’s a three-row high rider with distinctive styling, lots of tech, and plenty of space inside where occupants are treated to a surprisingly premium ambiance. It also has an unusual, yet powerful drivetrain under its hood.
The Mercedes-AMG GT53 Showed up to the Los Angeles Auto Show in a Pretty Red Dress
As far as I’m concerned the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is about as controversial as it gets. I consider it to be one of the laziest efforts from Mercedes to date. I mean, come on, It’s basically a CLS – it even looks like it, and some of the powertrains are even the same. Case in point – the AMG GT 53. Under the hood, you’ll find the same exact powertrain that you find under the hood of the CLS53. Be that as it may, we stumbled across the GT53 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and it sure did look really nice – even if it is just a CLS – in its fine red color. And, to top it off, it is rocking some rather strange, out-of-place, old-school wheels. That’s right – the AMG GT 53 showed up to L.A. wearing a nice red dress and a new pair of shoes.
