2017 GMC Terrain – Release Date, News and Rumors

The new 2017 GMC Terrain is once again promising to be the real-deal its class thanks to well-though out features, technologies, and capabilities that it offers. Furthermore, it comes with a powerful V6 engine, a spacious and adjustable backseat, a comfortable highway ride, and a whisper-quiet interior at speed. The GMC Terrain 2017 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, according to multiple sources undertaking a covert operation inside GMC.

Once production for the new 2017 GMC Terrain begins, it will mark the eighth year since the brand’s first entry in the market. Despite the steady growth of the segment in terms of girth and sales, the Terrain has continued to soldier on every consecutive year, getting redesigns and changes here and there in order to remain competitive in this hotly contested arena.

Although it’s starting to show its age, the 2017 GMC Terrain interior and exterior redesigns are conspicuous. Appealing qualities such as a comfortable ride and a serene cabin further its likable nature. Again, it comes with tons of technologies that will go a long way in helping you manage you children by distracting/entertaining them especially in long trips.

The familiar 2.4L four-cylinder engine returns again for the new model year. It is rated at 182 horsepower and 172 pounds-feet of torque. There’s also the boffo V6 engine that offers a power of 301 horsepower. When adequately equipped, GMC says the Terrain should be able to achieve a maximum towing capacity of around 3,500 pounds.

Sadly, there’re some compromises that have to be made. The GMC Terrain suffers from an underpowered four-cylinder engine despite it offering a competitive power of 182 horsepower. It is also slow to respond when you drive the pedal to the metal floor. The fuel economy ratings are poor and are nothing to write home about.

There’re a couple of newer vehicles in the segment that are better than the Terrain in many ways. They include the 2017 Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape 2017, and the Jeep Cherokee. Your choice, of course, depends on your priorities. Even in the face of such young, energetic, and better equipped rivals, the new 2017 GMC Terrain is still a good choice for those looking for V6 power and ride comfort.

2017 Honda Crosstour Release Date, Review and Specs

While the 2017 Honda Crosstour is a strong contender in the midsize sedan segment thanks to its spacious interior accommodation, available all-wheel drive, hush cabin, and carlike dynamics, it trails its competition in terms of cargo space. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, at least according to recent news.

2017 Honda Crosstour side angle, allot wheels

Unlike in the past when you could buy Honda wagons and hatchbacks, Honda started offering Crosstour hatchback from the 2010 model year. Within its price range, the model under review continues to be an oddball among the more seasoned wagon and SUV choices.

2017 Honda Crosstour exterior, taillights and tailpipe

The Crosstour offers plenty of interior room and adds an additional ten cubic feet of space relative to the Accord sedan. Accessing the cargo area is relatively simple thanks to the user-friendly hatchback design. The exterior visibility is better.

In terms of performance, the new 2017 Honda Crosstour returns for 2017 with the outgoing model’s 2.4L four-cylinder base engine that churns out a decent 192 horsepower and 162 pounds-feet of torque. In addition to the laudable output, people living in Snowbelt regions will particularly appreciate its all-wheel drive feature that adds extra traction in mundane conditions. The Accord, in stark contrast, lacks the AWD.

Another notable feature the Crosstour impresses with is its truly carlike handling feature compared to other compact or midsize crossover SUVs. If you’re planning to buy the 2017 Honda Crosstour, there are some idiosyncrasies we think you should know before penning down the purchased agreement. The new Crosstour lacks the newer sedan refinements that come with the latest generation Accord, as it still based on the previous platform.

2017 Honda Crosstour side view, alloy wheels

The cargo capacity is limited relative to what the competition offers. If you’re looking for a vehicle that balances fuel economy, handling and cargo and interior accommodations, you may probably want to check what the Nissan Murano, and the 2017 Honda CR-V.

Another impressive standout in the segment is the Toyota Venza. It manages to walk the line between wagon and sedan features, though with more faux success.

2017 Infiniti QX70 Release Date, Review and Specs

The new 2017 Infiniti QX70 manages to stand out from the rest of its rivals in a number of areas including its sporty performance, distinctive styling, easy-to-use technology interface, and its boatload of accessories. Well, while that may be true to some extent, the QX70 lacks the versatility that some of its rivals capitalize on immensely, and considering its supposed to be one of its core functions, some buyers may be swayed to look elsewhere. Well, you are the judge at the end of the day! Read on for more details concerning its release date, price, changes on interior and exterior, engine specs, and whatnot.

2017 Infiniti QX70 front view, grille, badges and headlights

The luxury crossover SUV segment is a hotly contested one and continues to become an even hotter rod in terms of rivalry every passing day. What this means is that new releases have to have that edge that distinguishes them from the rest of the offerings. While utility and performance are some of the core functions, they are, by and large, the common denominator across the entire segment and thus automakers have to constantly come up with unique innovations.

2017 Infiniti QX70 rear view, taillights and badges

The 2017 Infiniti QX70 – our primary focus in this piece – comes with several important changes and modifications that the automaker hopes will help the scales to its advantage. From a vantage point of view, the Infiniti QX70 grows both girth and sales volumes every year, and therefore demonstrates consumer loyalty thanks to its reliability, performance, and pricing structure. The latter is perhaps one single most factor that enders many to this little known product especially in comparison to German vehicles that cost an arm and a leg.

2017 Infiniti QX70 side angle, alloy wheels

It is sporty courtesy of the low, swooping roof line that crowns the body beneath. And just like the model it is replacing, offers a premium-laden interior, sporty driving manners, and excellent fit and finish. Whereas we applaud the efforts Infinity have invested in offering the QX70 with a near-exquisite interior with luxury trappings, it still comes a distant second to German rivals.

2017 Infiniti QX70 auto show, front view, headlights and grille

As is often the case, certain concessions have to be made in order to make a vehicle competent in its class while still making its pricing within reach of many. That said, the new RX-7 falls short in terms of a bantamweight towing capacity, lack of another engine choice, mediocre passenger and cargo space, and stiff on the highway. Those shopping in this segment should consider also checking out other vehicles in its class such as the Porsche Macan, 2017 BMW X3, and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. The Acura MDX and the Volvo XC90 are also other alternatives.

2017 Infiniti QX70 Release Date & Price

Its release date has already been announced, and Infinity says should be expected sometime in the spring of 2017. Pricing, on the other hand, has been left open for speculation, at least as per the time of this writing. Industry pundits put its most probable pricing formula at around $45,850 MSRP starting point.

2017 Infiniti QX70 Exterior

The exterior hasn’t received much changes, at least judging from the spy pictures available to us. The grille, headlights, bumper, and the taillights have however been redesigned. Eighteen-inch wheels seat beneath the body. The headlights are bi-xenon just like in the previous model. Other changes include a sunroof, LED foglights and running lights, aluminum roof rails, front and rear parking sensors, and optional 20-inch wheels.

2017 Infiniti QX70 Interior

Life aboard is comfortable, at least most of the time thanks to the plethora of convenience, entertainment, and infotainment features. Some of the standard accessories available include a dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a CD player, a USB audio interface, an eleven-speaker Bose audio system, a seven-inch display screen, and a Bluetooth connectivity.

Similar to the model it is replacing, the new model comes with several optional packages. Some of them include the Premium, Deluxe Touring, Technology, and Sport package. Infinity is yet to offer us the contents of these packages, but we expect the content list come its release date.

New 2017 Infiniti QX60 Release Date, Specs & Info

2017 Infiniti QX60 review – If you’re looking for a luxury crossover SUV that won’t break the bank, the 2017 Infiniti QX60 is perhaps the only great choice you’d get around. Some of the highlights that define it include ample passenger room, whisper-quiet ride, classy interior design, and stylish exterior design. Read on for more information regarding its release date, price, dimensions, interior/exterior redesign changes, and engine specs.

2017 Infiniti QX60 Release Date & Price

Rumors allege the new model will probably be headed for dealerships sometime in the middle of 2017, when its release date is rumored to occur. Pricing is under wraps for now, however, automotive experts say the new model will most likely go for sale for an MSRP starting from around $42,600.

Infiniti QX60 Review

Previously known as the JX, the Infiniti QX60 has virtually remained unchanged ever since it got the new QX60 nameplate. This shouldn’t however be taken to mean that it hasn’t got some mild refreshments on several of its facets that have managed to keep it afloat in its class. While we are of the opinion that it has improved in leaps and bounds, there’re certain drawbacks that have perennially hindered it from becoming a top dog within the three-row luxury crossover SUV segment.

2017 Infiniti QX60 front angle, grille and headlights

It is an all-rounded vehicle that won’t break the bank by luxury standards. Some welcome changes include LED lighting (running lights, foglights, and taillights), a redesigned grille, and minor exterior cues. Unlike its predecessor, the new model comes with abundant sound deafening materials that drastically reduce the amount of noise entering the cabin. The result of this is a serene ride quality devoid of the bustling environs. Also, the steering and suspension have seen some improvements as well.

2017 Infiniti QX60 rear view, taillights and tailpipe

But even with such seemingly refreshed facets, the Infiniti QX60 2017 will arguably still face an uphill task in trying to climb to the top of the trim ladder. Our top recommendation in the segment would undoubtedly be the 2017 Acura MDX. Other vehicles you can perhaps take for a spin around the block include the Volvo XC90, and the BMW X5.

2017 Infiniti QX60 exterior, grille

There’s no doubt that Infiniti has come from a long way. The ‘long way’ has however not been easy and the automaker has had to make certain concessions in order to appeal to its buyer’s pool. While it has strived to offer premium features and equipment, the overall refinement is a serious concern especially considering the impressive spec sheet that its rivals offer. For 2017, Infiniti has uped up its game in order to match the cabin trim levels of its German and American rivals.

2017 Infiniti QX60 exterior, trunk

The interior, as shall be seen later on in this review, comes with impressive equipment. The overall ambience ia better than before and this adds to its elegant appeal. The options’ list also bundles an extensive amount of features in form of bundles that buyers will have to spend an extra to get. Although the availability of the options is welcome, it negates the price advantage that compelled buyers to choose it over the rest of its rivals. In overall though, it all comes down to your priorities.

New 2017 Toyota Prius – Release Date, Specs & Info

If you’re looking for impressive fuel economy, look no further than the 2017 Toyota Prius. Additionally, it provides a better-riding and quieter ride quality, improved driving position, a generous cargo space, and lots of standard technologies. The Toyota Prius release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017, at least as per the recent media rumors.

2017 Toyota Prius side view, exterior, alloy wheels

For some couple of years now, the Toyota Prius has continually established itself as one of the best fuel-efficient vehicles in the segment, and the new 2017 model only comes to cement an already thriving vehicle on can buy. But even so, the Prius is not all about thriftiness at the pump, as the vehicle has been refined both on its exterior and interior and this only proves that the automaker isn’t coasting on its success.

2017 Toyota Prius rear view, red color, taillights, tailpipe, alloy wheels

The exterior design is radically different from the existing model it is replacing and whether or not it’s appealing should be left for Prius fans. Aside from the styling, one of the most compelling reasons that drives consumers to dealerships in search of Prius is mostly because of fuel efficiency. With an EPA rating of about 52 mpg, what! Yes folks, 52 mpg, things have just gotten better for 2017.

2017 Toyota Prius spy shots, front view

But wait, opting for the Prius Eco gets you a whopping 56 mpg in combined city/highway rating. Throw in the decent road manners and improved interior refinement, and you’ve got yourself an excellent vehicle worth bragging about at the pump.

2017 Toyota Prius side view, blue color, alloy wheels

There is plenty more to recommend starting with the less-retrained hard acceleration, improved head- and legroom, upright driving position, bumps are readily absorbed, lower and wider stance, and improved cargo bay. There is therefore no doubt that the Prius is one of the most practical vehicle in the segment.

The Prius enjoys a lack of rivalry in its class, but even with some trying to upset its standing on the segment, they’re still no match. They include Toyota Camry Hybrid, Ford Fusion Hybrid, and the 2017 Chevrolet Volt.

2017 Toyota Prius Trims

The new model is much more complex machine that boasts of a trio of electric motors, a twin-turbo V6, and an all-wheel drive system unlike the previous model which was rear-wheel drive and had an elemental engine. What however remains unchanged is the cutting-edge structure both models have.

The design and packaging of the new model has been optimized by the “advanced sports package” that seeks to epitomize all the performance components such as the Sport Hybrid power unit, chassis, interior, and the Intelligent Power Unit. Additionally, the new model has the lowest center of gravity relative to its traditional rivals. The centered mass and the low center of gravity pay dividends in response and handling. The centered mass, for instance, helps the vehicle minimize the polar moment, making the NSX reduce rotational kinetic energy and respond faster to steering inputs. In Layman’s language, the Honda Acura NSX is easier to stop and easier to turn the rotation.

Once available the 2017 McLaren 570S and the Audi R8 are some of the rivals the vehicle under review will have to square it out with.

Safety

2017 Honda Acura NSX safety

Although the Honda Acura NSX is expected to be a top dog in the supercar segment, it is surprising to note that it doesn’t come equipped with features such as automatic braking, collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locating, and emergency assistance systems are however available as standard safety features. Details of its crash impact safety assessment will be updated on this space on its release date.
