New 2017 Lincoln MKX – Release Date and Review

The latest Lincoln MKX redesign brings with it features such as better comfort amenities, a whisper-quiet interior, a strong turbocharged option, tons of features for the money, and a spacious backseat. It’s certainly worth a look for anyone looking for a competitive midsize crossover SUV. The 2017 Lincoln MKX release date should be expected sometime this fall.

Its debut into the market eight years ago was met with a lot of negative vibe and we actually recommended buyers to first try out other alternatives before making a decision to buy the Lincoln MKX. Our endorsement of its rivals was necessitated by the fact other vehicles in its class offered better a cabin layout, were more powerful, and were offered in a competitive price package.

The lackluster first impression still remained relevant in the intervening years. However, the existing model – which is the second generation model – came with plenty of desirable qualities that softened our stand, but what evokes an even more appealing attitude seems to be the 2017 Lincoln MKX.

Even with its mechanical underpinnings based on the 2017 Ford Edge, the new Lincoln MKX 2017 is a likable product on its own. Even the standard model comes equipped with tons of luxury and upscale technologies. The higher trims further make an overstatement with features such as a nineteen-inch Revel Ultima sound system, and a 22-way front seats.

Besides the 2017 Lincoln MKX interior highlights, performance is also another area where Lincoln deserves a thumbs up. It comes equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine that generously offers an output rated at around 303 horsepower and 278 lbs. ft. of torque. There’s also a turbocharged 2.7L V6 that further heightens the power output to around 335 horsepower and 380 pounds-feet of torque. A slew of driving aides are also offered.

Several foibles do exist however. The interior of the MKX doesn’t feel as exquisite as its competition, the rear visibility is also hampered by the small rear window and thick roof pillars, and the MyLincoln Touch interface is beyond frustrating but there’re rumors of a Sync 3 system debut. Alternatives are in plenty and it happens that the Lincoln MKX finds itself between a rock and a hard place as the level of competition here doesn’t seem to be within its reach.

Rivals include the BMW X5 2017, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Acura MDX, and the Lexus RX 350.

New 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Release Date and Info

The new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze combines style, content, and fuel economy with affordability with the result being a small sedan that is desirable and comfortable at the same time. Other highlights for 2017 include a well-trimmed cabin, plenty of technologies and premium materials, and laudable engine performance. Its release date should be expected sometime in the in the second quarter of 2017, although this is debatable as no one really knows when the Cruze will be offered for sale. 

2017 Chevrolet Cruze front angle, grille

For starters, the new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze has been fully reformed, just like the full-size Impala three years ago and the midsize Malibu sedan two years ago. Exterior wise, the design cues are adventurous and sharp, in stark contrast to the previous Cruzee’s largely anonymous sheet metal. It’s handsome and the tweaks offer it better aerodynamics.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze side angle, alloy wheels

Once inside, fresh technologies and premium materials offer it an upscale look, and with all these features in place, the Cruze comes as a solid contender in the small sedan segment. Under the hood, inspiration is offered by the base four-cylinder turbo that makes a decent output of 153 hp and 177 lbs. ft. of torque.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze front angle, grille and headlights

Chevy says the new model has shed about 250 pounds thanks to the lightweight body which has been constructed using aluminum and other lightweight materials on its chassis and panels. The result of the dieting is better fuel economy, handling and output, as the previous model was significantly heavier.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze rear angle, white color

Even better, the new Cruze now offers plenty of head- and legroom more so for the aft occupants. The MyLink touchscreen interface now offers a better response time than the previous interface. Other features available include blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alerts, lane-keeping assist and warning, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control. Others are a heated steering wheel, leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, wireless phone charging, Bose audio system, and forward collision alert and mitigation.

We’d suggest you look what is alternatives offer if at all you’re shopping for a small sedan. The 2017 Honda Civic seems to be the closest bogey to the Cruze and matches it with a brawny turbo, upscale technologies and better performance. Others include the Mazda 3, Kia Forte 2017, and the Ford Focus.

2017 Chevrolet Impala Release Date, Review and Specs

With its serene and quiet ride manners, excellent crash test scores, lots of interior accommodations, sleek, feature laden cabin, a laudable V6 engine, and voluptuous trunk, the new 2017 Chevrolet Impala is a smart choice for a large sedan. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of next year. 

2017 Chevrolet Impala exterior, side view

You might wonder why the Impala manages to draw such a huge cache of followers, well, here are some of the reasons: it has the big-car basics down, what with its voluptuous cargo capacity, smooth ride, and spacious interior accommodations large enough to relocate a small village in Africa.

2017 Chevrolet Impala side view, blue color

Relative to what its competition offers, we are impressed by the feature-rich cabin the Impala offers. Such features include a multi-view camera, adaptive cruise control, leather/leatherette upholstery, blind-spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, crisp-graphic infotainment system, lane-departure warning, and forward collision alert. The eight-inch infotainment system has now faster response rate and is easier to use than the outgoing model’s, and even novice smartphone users will find it exciting.

2017 Chevrolet Impala front view, headlights and grille

The options list and packages is dizzying just like in the previous model, albeit the cost will certainly render its affordability highlight obsolete. The Impala delivers on the highway, as big cars, of course, are meant to be mile-eaters.

It is always prudent to check what other sedans offer before settling on the “love at the first sight.” The Toyota Avalon, one of our favorites in the segment, happens to be the perennial kingpin here with its appealing techs and performance, and also offers a Hybrid model. Others include the stylish and bold 2017 Chrysler 300, Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera 2017, and the Hyundai Genesis.

It’s lighter than before thanks to the use of aluminum during its construction. This therefore means it now offers an even better handling, improved fuel economy, and cornering ability.

2017 Dodge Challenger – Release Date, News and Rumors

The all-new 2017 Dodge Challenger may perhaps the most hyped American muscle coupe available today. For starters, most respect for the Challenger comes from its power offerings. It comes in a wide array of trim models that offer anything ranging from an output of around 305 horsepower for the base Challenger SXT up to the stonking Challenger Hellcat that offers a nuclear 707 horsepower from a mammoth supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. The Dodge Challenger 2017 release date should be expected sometime in early 2017, though there are some rumors that put it around this fall. 

2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat side view, alloy wheels

True, the newest Dodge Challenger 2017 may lack corner-taking abilities in comparison to its foes, but it manages to counter its inadequacies with superior comfort and practicality. It’s all-rounded and it’s downright awesome just like the models before it. Much of its appeal, in addition to the above-mentioned specs, comes from its strong engines, a relatively supple ride, a highly customizable interior, an enormous trunk, spacious passenger space for four adults, and a superb infotainment system.

2017 Dodge Challenger rear angle, taillights and badges

For the legion of Dodge fans out there, our stating that the Dodge Challenger is awesome probably comes as an affirmation than a surprise. Indeed, the vehicle has been a hit ever since it debuted on the market. But besides the power and an-all American flare, its practicality is something deserving of praise. The backseat is adult-friendly unlike those of its peers. Furthermore, the cargo volume is voluptuous and merits a thumbs-up from cynics.

2017 Dodge Challenger spy shots

The 2017 Dodge Challenger interior has been revamped and now comes laden with upgraded materials and equipment. In addition to the ample cabin space, occupants have lots of standard features for convenience, entertainment, and control functions. These features make it a versatile companion that you can enjoy regardless of the errands you’re running.

2017 Dodge Challenger side view, silver color, alloy wheels

Some of the alternatives available include the Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Camaro, and Ford Mustang. At the end of the day and depending on your priorities, the ultimate decision lies with you. But even so, nothing can afford you the luxury of saying to your beer buddies: “Yep, it’s got more power than a Lamborghini Aventador.”

New 2017 Audi Q3 – Release Date and Review

The new 2017 Audi Q3 continues with the same comfort and luxury ambience expected of the brand. It also offers a hush and improved ride quality, many luxury features, and an upscale interior relative to its competition. However, its rivals could end up being more appealing as the Q3 comes a bit short when it comes to utility, fuel economy and consumption. Its release date should be expected sometime in early 2017. 

2017 Audi Q3 exterior, side view, silver color, alloy wheels

Just as the Audi Q5 compact crossover has had a successful streak in its segment, we also hope the Q3 – its smaller sibling – will also measure up to expectations. In most ways, we expect the Q3 to have to have an easy time delivering such as in its interior refinement, technology updates, standard features, ride quality, and value for the money.

2017 Audi Q3 exterior, taillights, tailpipe, rear view

Cabin sophistication has long been Audi hallmark, and the Q3 continues with the same legacy. On most surfaces, you’ll realize the Q3 offers a serene character. Additionally, you will find the cabin relaxing and entertaining with its desirable equipment.

But even with its many bells and whistles, the new Q3 still suffers from several foibles. For one, the propriety music interface is dated. The four cylinder turbocharged engine is also archaic relative to what the competition offers.

2017 Audi Q3 auto show, side view, alloy wheels, taillights

In sum, the new Q3 still deserves some merits on certain areas especially if you’re drawn to its style, but otherwise, the new Q3 might not measure up to what you expect. Of course, there are plenty of other desirable and similarly priced subcompact luxury crossovers in the same category.

2017 Audi Q3 exterior, rear view, silver color, taillights and tailpipe

They include the BMW X1, and the Lexus NX 200t. Another option would be its bigger sibling, the 2017 Audi Q5. The X1 offers better fuel economy, superior performance, and cutting-edge technology. The 200t, on the other hand, is neck-and-neck with the Q3 in terms of the technologies, but is better in terms of acceleration, fuel efficiency and interior space.

Trim Options – Audi Q3

Premium Plus and Prestige are the only trim levels offered for the five-passenger 2017 Audi Q3. Both are offered with either a FWD or a Quattro (all-wheel drive) system.

2017 Nissan GT-R Release Date, Review and Specs

Its appealing easy-to-drive nature and Olympian powertrain make the new 2017 Nissan GT-R a compelling choice thanks to its stupefying acceleration and high-handling limits. Inasmuch as Nissan has tried to offer its new GT-R model plenty of technologies and features, there is no denying the fact that the vehicle is getting a bit up in years and this is well evidenced in its basic refinement levels. The Nissan GT-R release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.

2017 Nissan GT-R white color, front view, grille

The Nissan GT-R is one special vehicle that embodies the concept of optimizing bang for your buck. In fact, it compares to no other vehicle in its class. It has evolved over the years to become a powerful sports car that dispatches the likes of Jaguar F-Type, 2017 Acura NSX, Audi R8, and the Porsche 911 Turbo effortlessly.

2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo grille and headlights

Back then all it could cost you was about 70,000 USD to get a 485-horsepower – generating version of the GT-R, this over time became overshadowed by newer and fresher rivals. Nissan therefore had no choice but to invigorate its model by offering latest technologies and an eye-popping performance, which over time led to the creation of the 2017 Nissan GT-R that not only promises an astonishing track performance, but also offers creature comforts and luxuries. The result is a vehicle that costs in the region of six figures.

2017 Nissan GT-R rear view, silver color, taillights and tailpipe

In terms of performance, the new GT-R comes with a twin-turbocharged V6 that generates an output of about 550-horsepower. The all-wheel drive system is rear biased and is controlled by a plethora of computer-controlled systems that, depending on prevailing factors, alters the torque.

2017 Nissan GT-R side view, silver color, alloy wheels

Combine all this features with an adjustable suspension system and you get yourself a stellar and seamless performance. However, for those looking to lay waste to all challengers with minimal effort should opt for the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo version that churns out an incredible 600- horsepower.

2017 Nissan GT-R front view, silver color, headlights and grille

Some of the features to expect from the new 2017 Nissan GT-R redesign include dual-zone automatic climate control, upgraded suspension system, Recaro front bucket seats, carbon aerodynamic work, and creature comforts. The only downside to owning the GT-R include a clunky transmission system, and a costlier price tag.

2017 Toyota Venza Release Date and Specs

2017 Toyota Venza – There have been rumors that the Toyota Venza will probably be discontinued from the market, however, new reports indicate the new vehicle is bound for dealerships sometime next year. Although lagging in some respects, the newest 2017 Toyota Venza offers a couple of things to write home about. The Toyota Venza release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, at least for the USA market and later elsewhere.

2017 Toyota Venza white color, alloy wheels and headlights

Some of the highlights that define the newest Venza include its carefully crafted doors that allow for easy ingress and egress, excellent V6 engine, and roomy interior accommodations. But even so, the Venza offers serious reasons to think twice for would-be consumers. This is necessitated by the fat it has a spotty interior quality, middling fuel economy ratings, lacking in advanced safety features, and sub-par material quality.

2017 Toyota Venza side view, black color

Latest Toyota Venza rumors indicate the vehicle will come with an improved powertrain that will help resuscitate its once revered performance not just in terms of offering higher horsepower and torque but also in improving its EPA rating. Another aspect about the Venza that the Japanese marque is investing efforts in is in its advanced safety systems. Its rivals redesigns have improved in leaps and bounds it’s only natural that the Venza comes competitively equipped if is to regain its once revered position at the helm of the segment’s totem pole.

2017 Toyota Venza rear angle, white color

That said, it doesn’t necessarily mean the Venza, as it is today, is that uncompetitive. On the contrary, it continues to be the class leader in terms of performance courtesy of its potent V6 engine. Its interior, though rather spotty, comes with several technologies that have already been confirmed such as a 360 surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a crisp and responsive infotainment system, and a slew of safety features.

2017 Toyota Venza front angle, grille and headlights

Just like the existing model, the new model also comes with ample cabin space that offers all its occupants enough head- and legroom. And as already mentioned above, the doors have been designed in such a way that they alloy for easy ingress and egress.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, there are couple of alternatives which we’d recommend first before giving the 2017 Toyota Venza the benefit of doubt. Rivals include 2017 Ford Edge, the Subaru Outback, and the Nissan Murano 2017.

2017 Toyota Venza rear view, taillights and tailpipe

The 2017 Nissan Murano release date is expected sometime later next year with a base price averaging around $29,660. For that price, features to expect include a spacious and upscale interior, nice balance of fuel economy and power, and comfortable and supportive seats. Unconfirmed reports have it that the 2017 Nissan Murano redesigns have also roped-in more torque and power.

2017 Toyota Venza exterior

The 2017 Ford Edge price starts at an MSRP of around $28,700. Rumors have it that Ford Edge spy photos show a completely redesigned model that comes with a completely different front and rear fascia. Little is known about the Edge but my crystal ball tells me the vehicle will most likely be released late next year as a 2018 year model.

2017 Toyota Venza Review of Trims

The previous model provided three trims, we’re not sure how many the new model will come with as there’s scanty information as regards that. However, if Toyota makes available the current lineup, then we should expect up to three trims: XLE, Limited, and the base LE.

2017 Honda Civic Release Date and Specs

As before, the new Honda Civic 2017 returns with zesty fuel efficient engines, satisfying handling, spacious interior accommodations, advanced infotainment system, and tons of safety technologies. Once again, it’s a must-drive compact sedan. The Honda Civic USA release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

2017 Honda Civic blue color, exterior, alloy wheels

Early reviews for the Civic (2011-2015) were rather uninspiring, but even that didn’t deter Honda from continuing to make the Civic which had had a rather class-leading status before that. Even with its once revered status long gone, the Honda Civic redesign brought in significant changes that Honda hopes will rejuvenate it even the face of growing hostility from the ever-increasing newer and fresher rivals.

2017 Honda Civic front view, headlights and grille

The 2017 Honda Civic takes pride in offering nifty technological features, premium and mature cabin, and edgy and upscale exterior looks. The engine compartment however lacks any rejuvenation and the model returns with two engines as before, with the most powerful being the turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine rated at just 174 horsepower and 162 pounds-feet of torque.

2017 Honda Civic rear angle, taillights and tailpie

The 2017 Honda Civic Si release date is expected in the spring of 2017 and rumors going round allege the vehicle will come fitted with a detuned version of the Civic Type R engine’s 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The mill is believed will be mated with a six-speed manual transmission system and will generate around 220 to 230 horsepower.

2017 Honda Civic white color, side view

The 2017 Honda Civic hatchback, on the other hand, will probably be offered with different engines suited for different markets across the world. Rumors allege the hatchback will come equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine mated to either a CVT or a six-speed manual. This combination will probably yield about 158 hp and 138 lbs. ft. of torque.

2017 Honda Civic side view, exterior, red color, alloy wheels

Similar to its predecessors, the 2017 Honda Civic interior is voluptuous, comfortable, and sporty. In fact, Honda says the Civic’s interior volume is best-in-class. You’ll probably find no reason to ditch it for the Honda Accord. The materials inside are premium and comfortable.

2017 Honda Civic spy shot

Inasmuch as the 2017 Honda Civic specs sound convincing, there are a couple of other vehicles in the segment that offer paralleling or better features depending on what you’re looking for. The Mazda 3 hatchback is one such vehicle. The newest model – the 2017 Mazda 3 release date is expected sometime mid-this year as a 2017 model with an MSRP starting from below $30,000.

2017 Honda Civic grille and headlights

Another potential rival to the Honda Civic is the Kia Forte. The newest model – the 2017 Kia Forte was recently unveiled during the 2016 Detroit auto show and, judging for the interior pictures seen, we should expect the Forte to come with lots of technology updates. Additionally, the Forte sedan gains a new S trim that will sit in between the Kia Forte EX and LX trims.

2017 Honda Civic Review of Trims

The five passenger 2017 Honda Civic sedan is available in five trims: Touring, EX, LX, EX-L, and EX-T. The Civic coupe, on the other end, is offered in Touring, EX-T, LX, LX-P, and EX-L. As already mentioned, both the 2017 Honda Civic Si and hatchback will be offered with different engines and specs relative to the regular Civic, and therefore it is necessary that separate reviews are offered.
