There’s been quite some time since the NHTSA announced any sorts of recalls on new or older cars and we’re unsure about whether this is good or bad. Should we be glad that car makers are coming up with safer better built cars or should we worry that the American authority is slacking off? Unfortunately […]
Though not exactly the biggest of news, a couple of years back the Germans have once again teamed up with the Italians. No war was planned but Mercedes and Ducati have both gained something from the deal and they want us to know that the future holds more of the same. In order to celebrate […]
The Fiat-Chrysler alliance decided for a plan swap in regards to the market introduction of the Chrysler 200’s European market release. Instead of going for the full-setup the Italians decided to offer the cream of choices, a convertible called the Lancia Flavia, which is the open top version of the Chrysler 200. They’ll be releasing […]
Since there’s a lot of talking going on about hurricanes and stuff lately, German tuner G-Power thinks there’s some marketing capital out there for one of their cars. That’ll be the 2011 BMW X5 Typhoon body kit. The only difference is that this time, G-Power went for some changes that aren’t purely cosmetic. Under that […]
Volkswagen’s first actual in house built pickup truck, the 2011 Amarok has begun making a serious name for itself. The first serious presence it has “out there” was contracted by the Portugese National Institute for Search and Rescue who ordered a small fleet of Amaroks. We’re only talking about 14 units of the VW Amarok, […]
BMW’s tricks with the X range aren’t all that much fun as they’ve been so far and in regards to the smallest one around they’re not that good. For those of you who are Americans interested in this particular X1 I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait quite a while before you’ll be able […]
Despite the immense racing history and heritage the British Lotus brand is associated with they have to concede that their operation is still a small one. As part of this sort of financial and technical affair, their current model lineup isn’t exactly as long as Moby Dick and even so they are struggling. Proof of […]
Among the several hundreds of awards each year regarding the entire automotive industry, there is only one series that doesn’t annoy true automotive enthusiasts. This is the Engine of the Year awards, a series of success stories that truly and objectively rate the best things one may find under the bonnet of a car. In […]
The Nissan Z car has been with us for so long most of us can’t even remember the origins it has and all the racing pedigree it once stood for. Even though the Nissan 370Z is now more of a street tuner’s favorite if not the boulevard cruiser it just seems like the Japanese don’t […]
Spring had us hear about rumors and sketches and at the moment but it really took the arrival of the summer for Venchurs to be ready for an unveiling of the first Xplore Jeep Wrangler. Apparently this very beefy looking, seriously upgraded by Mopar, Xplore Jeep Wrangler has some sort of charity related involvement with […]
I try, I really do. I just keep on disliking and hating it as much as possible and yet the 2011 Chevrolet Volt just keeps on popping up in the good beats of the news. A very new General Motors statistic really reveals the way the 2011 Chevrolet Volt attracts more customers to the Chevy […]
Remember that time about a couple of years ago when most of Detroit was on fire and everybody in America was out of money? Well actually, Detroit has been on fire for the last couple of decades and the focus back then was on how this town’s car makers were all bankrupt.
I’ll probably never forget the mess Toyota got into with all those unintended acceleration/floor mat and such problems but it does feel nice to see them constantly working on it. One of their latest efforts will be this just announced voluntary recall that concerns the 2011 Toyota Tundra pickup.
A new plan from Volkswagen came up at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show, one that sounds pretty bad and could end up being great. It seems like VW is working towards introducing a new low-cost brand specifically for the Chinese market, the Spanish one at Seat.
The 2011 Ford Fiesta received quite the welcoming in all the markets the Blue Oval sent it to and it really shows. Once the numbers came in for the sales of the first quarter of 2011, Ford’s stunning little hatchback ranked on top of everything else with wheels.
I know the play on words is cheesy, somehow it doesn’t stop me enjoying speaking about Volkswagen’s latest people carrier concept. The new creation was presented at the 2011 New York Auto Show and the name chosen for it was Volkswagen Bulli; sorry for ruining the surprise.
Just like any other motor show around the world, the 2011 New York Auto Show isn’t only for big engined muscle cars or gas guzzling Jeeps. Quite the contrary, not only did we get cars of the people like the 2012 Kia Soul and cars for environmentalists like this treat from Mitsubishi, the i Miev.
As you can see here, the special launch Mopar had at the 2011 New York Auto Show was of a new and improved version of the Dodge Charger. Taking a beneficiary image plus from the solid appearance of the Dodge Charger in the latest of Fast and Furious movies, this Mopar creation really went the […]
Here is yet another World Car of The Year winner that the majority doesn’t agree with, because it’s the 2011 Nissan Leaf. I’m not one of the people that thinks the Nissan Leaf EV is that good a car but I don’t think it’s bad either and that means I may be a good person […]
The third month of 2011 went extremely well for the Germans at BMW in terms of sales but the Spanish at Seat can’t complain either. It seems that VW’s fiery and sporty division from Spain has had one of its best monthly sales ever registered by the company on the UK market.
