Arguably one of the most recognizable modern Cadillacs, the Escalade is getting ready to say bye-bye to its fourth generation as the fifth is set to make a debut on February the 4th, 2020.
So far we’ve had a fair share of rumors joined by blurry shots of the big SUV’s interior an exterior cues, so we’ve put it all together to see what exactly do we know about and what to expect from the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
The List of Predecessors to the Lotus Evija That You Didn’t Know Existed
Lotus just took a big step into the future by launching the Evija, its first-ever hypercar and first fully electric vehicle. Also likely to become the world most powerful production car, the Evija is a rather unusual car for an automaker known for affordable and lightweight sports cars. But as surprising as the Evija might seem, the truth is Lotus has been working with electrified drivetrains since the late 2000s. That’s a full decade of EVs and hybrids that haven’t received the attention they deserved. Granted, they’re all concept cars that never made it into production, but their existence signalled Lotus’ intentions. Also, several automakers based a handful of electrified vehicles on Lotus platforms. Let’s have a closer look at them.
What We Know About the Mid-Engined 2022 Hyundai N Sports Car
For the better part of a decade (since 2014, to be specific), Hyundai has been teasing us with a stand-alone N-branded halo car that would feature a mid-engine configuration and hatchback body. We’ve seen four concepts – the RM14, RM15, RM16, and most recently, the RM19 – and now we’ve received even more information that helps us paint a clear picture of what we can expect from the N halo car and when we can expect to see it. The future is here folks, and Hyundai’s affordable sports car isn’t far off. Here’s everything we know about it!
The Most Anticipated Cars Coming in 2020
This is not a time to dwell on what 2019 brought to the car world. Sure, it was a full year, scattered with intriguing debuts and paradigm-shifting new cars, but as things stand, 2020 will pick up where 2019 left off when it comes to debuts of all sorts.
We’re going to see some iconic nameplates getting a resurrection just as we’ll see more and more electric cars of all shapes and sizes rushing to the market. What’s more, the sports car slash supercar world is ready to receive some exciting names, so stick with us to find out which are the most anticipated cars coming in 2020.
Every Concept Car That We Covered in 2019
Now that 2019 is in the books, we thought it was a good time to look back at all the new concepts that we covered throughout the year. There were so many, in fact, that we couldn’t even cover them all, but we sure did cover a lot of them. And, a significant portion of them were noteworthy in their own right.
Take the 2019 Jeep Gladiator by Katzkin Leather, for example. It was a perfect representation of how a tuner or upholsterer can make a rugged off-roader like the Gladiator as elegant as some of the most luxurious models on the planet. Then we have the Renault EZ-Ultimo that gave us a look into the future of what cars might be like just decades down the road. Some cars simply paved the way and prepared us for what was to come – I’m talking about models like the BMW Concept 4 or the Mercedes Concept GLB.
These models aside, we’re actually naming 2019 as the “Year of Concepts,” and we’ve added a full list of every concept review we wrote in the last year just a little further down the page. So, take a short walk with us as we take a stroll down memory lane and revisit some of this years awesome concept cars.
All Cars Discontinued for 2020
2019 brought more than a hundred new vehicle into dealerships, but it was also the final year for quite a few models.
Whether really old platforms or slow sellers, some important nameplates went into the history books and won’t be available for purchase in 2020. Here’s a list of the 13 cars that you will no longer find in dealerships in 2020.
The Best and Worst Concept Cars of 2019
Concept cars used to be a much rarer thing back in the day. Back in the 1960s, carmakers didn’t build many at all. Budgets were tighter, technologies were fewer, so most companies barely unveiled one per year, if not fewer. 50 years later and carmakers launch tens of concepts per year. We saw too many to count in 2019, but we remembered a few of them. We remember some for being cool, but we also remember a few concept cars for being some of the worst we’ve seen in years. In this list, I discuss the five best and five worst concepts launched in 2019.
Year End Review - The Best New Cars of 2019
The car scene, as we know it, is changing on an almost daily basis. Gone are the days when you’d have to wait months or years in a row for a big-name car launch to happen. These days it’s go, go, go whether we’re talking supercars, electric cars, SUVs, or even pickup trucks.
So, here’s a list of 2019’s best new cars. Some are impressive through their performances while others open new niches, try to change a brand’s way of thinking, or simply looking to address some of the modern mobility issues. That said, here are our picks for the best new cars of 2019.
Year End Review - The Absolute Worst New Cars of 2019
2019 was a great year for the auto industry. We’re seen hundreds of debuts that included awesome supercars, cool sports cars, roomy SUVs, and innovative electric vehicles.
Several iconic nameplates, including the Volkswagen Golf, Porsche 911, and Toyota Supra, spawned new generations, while crazy-looking models like the Tesla Cybertruck made their global debuts. But the industry also had its share of not-so-spectacular debuts and we’re here to discuss just that in a list that features the worst debuts of 2019.
A Look Back at Some of Santa’s Exotic and Most Luxurious Sleighs
Nobody really knows how often Santa upgrades his sleigh, but what if he wanted to shop for a new model altogether? Well, over the past five or six years, publications like Car Magazine have challenged automakers to design a new sleigh for Santa. Automakers like Bentley, Land Rover, and even Vauxhall have designed new sleighs for Santa in the past, so needless to say, Santa has had a lot to choose from.
I don’t recall seeing any designs last year, and have only seen one this year. But, when you consider the long list of available sleighs at his disposal, there are still at least a few on standby, just waiting to be plucked from some secret, magical garage that is undoubtedly located somewhere at the North Pole.
Since we haven’t seen too many fresh designs for the 2015, I decided to revisit a few of the sleighs created in the years past. Most of the sleighs are exotic, or out of this world – and one even looks like a fighter jet – but why wouldn’t Santa take advantage of all the latest technology? You may have seen one or two of the designs in the past, but it’s always fun to revisit things like this during the holidays. Which of the following sleighs do you think Santa is going to use this year?
Santa’s Favorite Red Factory Car Paints
When it comes to cool factory car paints, there are plenty to choose from nowadays and even more if we look in the past. But what if we restrict it to just one color? After all, it’s Christmas and almost everything about this season is red, including Santa’s coat and sleigh. The answer is that there are quite a few cool red hues to choose from. Better said, Santa has plenty of choices for his garage.
While black, white, and silver make up the holy trinity of popular car colors in 2018, red remains in the top 10. It might not be as popular as it used to be a few decades ago, but the fact that automakers keep rolling out exciting shades of red is proof that people are still buying. Let’s have a look at Santa’s favorite red factory paints ever offered.
New Info Surfaces for Lordstown Endurance Electric Pickup - Here’s What We Know
Lordstown Motors came under the spotlight when it purchased GM’s factory is Lordstown, Ohio. No, it’s not ironic; the marque actually derives its name from the village in Trumbull County. Lordstown Motors is entering the electric pickup truck market with its first offering called the Endurance.
The company has constantly been in news, especially for its claims that the Endurance can beat the Cybertruck. Apparently, the Endurance will be up and running before the Cybertruck hits the roads. Now, a few more details have emerged on the company’s website wherein it plans to produce half-a-million truck every year, amongst many other things. Isn’t Lordstown being a little too ambitious at this point?

What Will Santa Drive for Christmas 2019?
We all know Santa uses a reindeer-powered sleigh to move around, but what if he’s also a gearhead? I mean, he’s been around long enough to witness the evolution of the automobile, I’m pretty sure he likes them and drives a few cars in his free time. But what would he drive for Christmas in 2019?
Choosing just one car is extremely difficult so I went with five. A vehicle for a different purpose. Truck and SUVs to haul goods, a sedan to relax in the back seat, a sports car for a bit of fun, and a vintage car simply because Santa seems to be a classy guy. Let’s see what Mr. Claus will drive this year for Christmas in the list below.
