They tweeted out a teaser video just now:
From Autoblog. I’m not totally sold on the front fascia; it kinda looks like they blended the front fascias of a Silverado and a Sierra. I do like the badges on the hood, though.
I DD a 2012 Ford Focus SE, and Ford sent out a recall last year for door latches that would fail to latch. I ignored it until recently, when my Focus’ driver’s door wouldn’t stay closed because of a broken latch.
I recently finished up with my college classes for this semester, so I dove back into GTA Online. R* was running a 25% discount on the “Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit” DLC cars; I bought the Grotti Turismo Classic when it was released, so I grabbed the other three cars.
They should instead have 200Z and 300Z variants of the Z34 that use the Infiniti Q60's 2.0T and 3.0L TTV6 (in Red Sport 400 guise), respectively. A more powerful Z fights the Mustang GT and Camaro SS, while a less powerful Z fights the Mustang EB and Camaro 2.0T and makes up for Nissan dropping the ball with the IDx.
If you’re still playing GTA Online on a last-gen console, you have until Monday, March 6th to transfer your character to the current-gen console or PC versions. Character Transfers from the last-gen versions will be disabled afterwards.
The best Mustang.
IDK whether the new Ford Bronco will be closer in execution to the Troller T4 or the Everest, but I’d prefer to have both of those come Stateside.
Alex on Autos posted a video review of the 2017 Subaru Outback a couple of weeks ago; the Outback hasn’t been refreshed AFAIK. Said video has racked up a surprising number of views relative to other AoA videos posted since the start of November; of those videos, only the Durango review has (slightly) more views.
So after the “Import/Export” update dropped for GTA Online, the rumored Skyline-based Elegy turned out to be a real thing, and I had to have it now. I sold off a few cars that I didn’t really care for, since I’m basically broke in-game, and bought this. I love it!
Googling “gt500" yields a link for the 2017 GT500, the “Cobra of Performance Cars,” though it redirects to the regular Mustang page. Apparently, the page’s code also references a 5.8L V8, i.e. the Trinity motor.
I took my Focus in for service, and arrived just in time to see this GT350 (marked up $10k LOL) exit dealer prep and be pulled into the showroom. Somebody gave it a couple of revs while it was in the service bay.
Much like previous updates to GTA Online, the newest “Bikers” (why not “Hog Wild” or something?) update contains hidden motorcycles and cars that players have found in the game’s code. R* is releasing said vehicles as additional free DLC in the weeks following the main update.
I’ve really taken a liking to Honda’s more recent wheel designs. It isn’t just the top-of-the-range ones that you get on things like the Accord Touring and Civic Si - even the Accord EX has wheels that look good in motion IMO. Also, I’m hyped for the Civic Si’s reveal at the L.A. Auto Show next month!
Looks like GM is throwing Buick badges, as well as new front and rear bumpers, onto the Chevy Volt and calling it the Buick Velite. The Velite has a cleaner, more low-key look than the Volt IMO; I like how it doesn’t have a large, conspicously blocked-off lower grille.
This year’s Fall Career Fair is about to get underway, and Ford is showing up for the second year in a row. Last year, they brought a regular Mustang GT with the Black Accent Package to show off; this year, they’ve brought a pre-production F-150 Raptor and a Grabber Blue Shelby GT350.
Today in “Stuff that I saw on Autoblog”: a better look at the JLR-sourced 3.0L V6 diesel that’s going into the F-150.
It’s an MR prototype with significantly less camo than before! Or at least the spy photographer has a better POV, LOL. Apologies if this has already been posted here.
Additionally, a hybrid version of the current Murano has apparently been in production for some time now. And here I thought that Toyota’s RAV4 and Highlander Hybrids (as well as Subaru’s Crosstrek Hybrid) were the only new hybridized mainstream CUVs/SUVs on sale in the U.S.
