Engine Power Speed

The new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes with very interesting moment referring to the driving force and the 6.2-liter Hellcat Hemi V-8 that is in some way copied or downloaded from the Dodge Charger and Challenger. This is taken on remained unchanged. The Jeep has in some way unique exhaust system, with a package that borrows the Torque Reserve system and upgrades it to 2.4-liter Roots-style supercharger, which is intended for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Still in the game output of 707 horses that the jeep brought remarkable skills, with a torque of 645. This is, of course, thanks to all the restrictive system that owns the vehicle. The Grand Cherokee has Trackhawk driving force or even acceleration of 3.5 seconds to 60 mph. Based on a quarter-mile passes in just 11.6 seconds at 116 mph.

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is something that can fit in like a reference, whose power is transferred by means of transmission with ten speeds and where we have the same case that 3.5 seconds affects 60 mph and the same as a previously mentioned quarter mile in 11.5 seconds affects to 127 mph. Of course, when it comes to stopping at 107 meters has also hit 60 mph. If we make a comparison, here we have a case that is only 0.2 seconds at 1320 meters, while the jeep to 11 mph is slower.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Release Date and Review

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulietta marks a mid-cycle facelift which is going to lead to the introduction of a next generation model which is scheduled to come out soon. It has been around five years already when the newest Giulietta was introduced and the sales numbers have been dwindling for the past few years.

The Italian automaker managed to introduce the Giulia QV, which was a success, and decided to keep the changes of the Giulietta to a minimum, which later resulted in poor sales numbers. Bringing it back a bit is this 2017 update which is going slowly lead to a revival of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta brand which is scheduled for release in the near future.

The car has been in talks for a time now but it was immediately known that the latest car is not going to be shaped too drastically and differently. When the car was spotted doing rounds in its camo, the spy photos revealed a model which is going to retain much of the characteristics of the car. This was also for the interior and the exterior of the car. The model cannot compete with the likes of Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf in this manner so this is why a complete overhaul is being saved for the next generation model and the future.

The Alfa Romeo brand has been struggling recently when outputting their cars on the market and that was largely seen with the late arrival of the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the release of their first ever SUV model as well. The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulietta is thus going to receive a minor facelift which might not give it a fighting chance compared to the competition it is facing. Nevertheless, this review will tell you what the car is made of and what we can expect form it once the release date comes.

The new exterior style of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulietta does not bring that many differences compared to the current model. The front end does bring a new Alfa Romeo shield that uses a honeycomb grille which is used instead of the horizontal-slat layout from before. It also combines with new badge that also has a new styling.

The same type of a honeycomb grille is featured on the bumper which receives blacks inserts and has a sportier character. The rear end of the car is completely identical to the outgoing model and does not feature any changes at all.

These include red front bumper inserts, carbon headlamps and glossy anthracite accents  placed on the handles, mirror caps, and foglamp surrounds, but these features are only found on the  Veloce trim level. Everything else is the same and as we did not expect Alfa Romeo to bring out their new language design for this model, we did expect more form this facelift to be honest.

2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 Review

There were a lot of interesting news released from Ford recently which ultimately saw the release of a 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 finally confirmed. Actually this release came at the expense of the Ford Fiesta RS model as it was finally announced that a new model is not going to be built this year. But it gave a lot of room and a lot of time for the ST200 version to prosper and finally get updated. The hot hatch model is a high-performance version of the car and is going to make its debut next year.

The Ford Fiesta ST200 first came on the market in 2013 and had an output of 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which was mainly thanks to a 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. The 2017 version is set to appear in Geneva for the first time for its official showcasing and reports say that it is going to dictate a power higher than the previous one. Actually as reported, it may go up to 10 percent more power and 20 percent more torque. This model is also unique as it brings us a list of features that we would otherwise not get in any other Ford model on the market.

The Chief Executive of Ford has recently stated that all of their new and modern vehicles come with the Ford Performance offering, which has been becoming stronger and stronger in recent years as it developed. The Ford’s EcoBoost engine technology is the one to thank and it will only be getting stronger and better. Until the release date of the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 and its unveiling, we can study the review and discuss about it as well.

The model also changes the and adds black color on the front grille, corner vents air dam louvers, mirror arms which are going to combine with the new 17-inch alloy wheels  and helping to comprise the visual package of the car in a great way.

The color was a great choice, which was strange as they had gone with a darker tone instead of a brighter and an eye-catching one. But this new one actually suits the car far better as it also combines with the red brake calipers  that came standard and a brand new ST 200” badge placed on the rear hatch.

The Ford Performance has been upgraded as well with a little bit of fine tuning of the suspension dampers the spring both in the front and rear end of the car. This makes the ride height of the car drop by 15 mm and at the same time lowers the car’s center of gravity.

2017 Porsche 718 Boxster Review and Price

The newest 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster is out. With the model and an extensive array of changes comes also the change in the name. The car is going to denominate the new Porsche car and use the label which was actually used before for lightweight Porsche cars built between 1957 and 1962. The name change comes with the Boxster now using a  four-cylinder engine and it was announced that this name is also going to be sued for the Cayman model, once it gets updated and receives its release date.

The Porsche Boxster model was first introduced in 1996. It was an entry level, mid-engine sports car and was the first road going roadster that Porsche has outputted since the 550 Spyder car. The car was immediately met with plenty of criticism as the car marked a significant departure from the traditional Porsche look. Little did they know back then that the Boxster will become Porsche’s biggest volume sale car. Now almost 20 years after its debut, it is time for another refresh for the car.

22017 Porsche 718 Boxster side

The Porsche 718 Boxster manages to do the same thing as the 911 Carrera model as they have both exchanged their naturally aspirated engines in favor of a turbocharged one. Porsche actually aims to reduce emission rates and improve efficiency using this strategy, and for the most part it appears to be working. This engine will use a flat-four configuration instead of the traditional flat-six used before.

As we are nearing the release of the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster it was only fitting to make a review and let you know all about the specs and rats about the car and give you a chance to find out more about it.

2017 Volvo V40 Cross Country Review

The newest 2017 Volvo V40 Cross Country gets a new face as it comes with many improvements that come on the interior, wheels and color options and updated technology as well. The model will be showcased this year at the Geneva Auto Show and the announcement came via several teaser images which were released by Volvo in order to prepare us for the actual thing.

The Cross Country is a young brand as it was introduced in 2013 alongside the base V40 version. It is still a five-passenger hatchback vehicle but one which adds greater versatility as it has a higher ground clearance that the entry level V40, an AWD system and dark body cladding. The model is a softrader and is aimed to help you through some very bad weather conditions as it can go through ice and show, rather than being able to tackle terrain with deep mud and rocks.

The 2017 update to the V40 Cross Country plans to make an already good and popular car an even better one. It is the top selling Volvo vehicle in Europe and the second best Volvo globally and they aim to keep it that way and even go beyond with the release of the new updated version.

There are still no information about the official US release date but after the showcasing in Geneva there may get to talk about it a bit. Our best guess is that it will happen possibly next year. The opportunity of having this attractive vehicle in the US market is a welcoming one and will sure make the fans happy. Read all about the Volvo V40 Cross Country 2017 in this review.

The majority of the updates made to the 2017 Volvo V40 Cross Country is seen on its exterior. The new model gets a new sporty grille which adds a center mesh and a Volvo logo placed on it. The headlights come with the trademark “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlight accents which is something that makes it a distinguishable Volvo car. The V40 carries over the faux front skid plates down below and the satin chrome trim extends far wider than it used to be before.

A wonderful new addition is the fact that the model is going to come with no less than eight wheel choices which are going to be available across the entire V40 lineup and including the R-Design and Cross Country respectively. The exterior is also graced with five new color variants that add Amazon Blue and Denim Blue, as the new ones to go along the  Bursting Blue, Mussel Blue and Luminous Sand, which are the old colors.

There are also several panel trim options offered on the inside, for instance Black Grid Aluminum, Milled Aluminum and Stealth Aluminum. The accents in the doors combine by adding contrasting stitching while a black headliner is now optional.

Something that the buyers will certainly like is the Volvo On Call smartphone app. Using it you can access the vehicle’s in-car features and remote control them. It also expands with an access to Microsoft Band 2, Apple Watch and Android Wear devices.

2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 Review

There are news about the announcement of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 model being released. It appears that Mercedes is continuing in revamping its entire lineup. There have been a number of vehicles which have done so already and that have received changes not only in appearance but even with their names. The AMG E63 is another model which has been given a new name as many of the Daimler’s AMG sub-brands have done so as well, namely the AMG C63 and AMG GT.

What the changes made to the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 are going to concentrate on is the updates made to the chassis of the ca, a completely revised interior and a new kind of engine matted under the hood. We have created a review which will help you fathom just how much the model has changed for the better and it makes the model lighter but more rigid as well.

This model at the same time marks the new-generation vehicle of this brand and is supposed to substituted the former one in great fashion. This one can be particularly important as it needs to fend off against the all-wheel drive M, which has been announced, and against competitors like Cadillac and Audi which have still to reveal their play into all of this. Find out more about the release date and the specs and performance rates about the Mercedes-AMG E63 2017 right here.

2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 Exterior

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 is going to take the exterior styling direction of the current E Class model that Mercedes-Benz is outputting. As it was seen at the Detroit Auto Show and as it is the case with many current E-Class models the AMG E63 is going to have a shape like a larger C-Class with just minor differences. So we can actually say that the E63 is going to be very similar to the C63. What the difference between these two cars is a longer wheelbase, different headlamps, a new kind of rear bumper, slightly modified roofline, the taillights are also going to be changed and thicker C-pillars. But the greatest and most important innovation here is heavily revised upper character lines which this model gets.

But there are some parts which will help the 2017 AMG E 63 stand out among its E-Class peers. The difference is going to be in the reshaped front and rear bumper parts, with new side skirts as well and a similar grill but with a different pattern. There is going to be a  motorsport-inspired rear diffuser in the back of the car as the rear end also gets three fins, chrome-plated, quad-exhaust tips with an integrated  trunk-lid spoiler. The front fenders are also new and are wider which also prompts a wider front track and some lightweight sporty wheels.

Interior Specs

The interior of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 is not going to bring many surprises as it is going to continue the same kind of design which the previous AMG models have had. The fact is that the new model is going to borrow a lot of new elements from the C63 model but they will be built on the basis taken from the S63. This is seen in the fact that the E-Class models and S-Class models have a dashboard which has a similar design as they both have a smooth look and the same positioning of the A/C vents.

The majority of the cockpit is going to be the same as the E-Class but it will be enhanced by adding sportier elements. These sporty features include a bespoke instrument cluster with a 200-mph speedometer, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a carbon-fiber and aluminum trim and of course bolstered seats wrapped in leather. And of course, what AMG brand could go without a AMG Dynamic Select switch and AMG-exclusive analogue clock. There is going to be an expanded range of options which is going to range from new seats and stitching as well.

Engine Details

The greatest fact about the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 update is that it is going to get an all new all-wheel drivetrain. The twin-turbo, 5.5-liter V-8 is no longer going to be used as the model now continues on with a 4.0-liter V-8, the same one found in the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT car.

The specs were preserved for the release date of the model, but as they have been leaked they now stand at a whopping 563 horses and 553 pound-feet of torque for the E63 and 604 horsepower and 627 pound-feet for the E63 S version. The E63 goes 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds while the E63 S can accelerate to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. The top speed remains the same at 155 mph as the car that it borrows the engine from. The models comes with a standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a nine-cog automatic which is supposed to improve fuel economy for the car.

The DB11  is going to be the first of its kind and will be the model which is going to take the place of the iconic DB9 model.

If you are a fan of movies, you might have already gotten a glimpse of how the car might look. Since the Aston Martin DB11 model is going to be built in the same style language the DB10 James Bond car was made, which was previewed in the latest 007 movie, you might already understand which direction Aston Martin is taking with its future vehicles. This style of design is actually going to incorporate the compact appearance of a tourer vehicle and combining it with the classic features that were established in the 90s and which made the car so famous in the first place.

There was much debate on what the design of the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 car was going to look like. Much of the mystery was ended when the model of the car made its debut on the big screen, hinting to us what we may expect. Now with the release date at hand, there are more information about the design of DB11. Up front, it is going to have smaller headlamps and a grille which is insured by the one see in the  DB10 car. The front end also sees a revised hood and all of this details are going to appear on the model come the showcasing in Geneva.

The side view of the car actually bares more differences compared to the DB10. It retains the long trademark hood but adds sportier rear haunches, a different look on the roofline and quarter windows, and the rear overhang is shorter. The rear end of the DB11 actually copies more from the DB10 than any other part of the car. First of all, they have a similar decklid and a similar diffuser. It excludes the large spoiler this time but adds the C-shaped taillights that further extend into the trunk lid which go towards the Aston Martin badge which is found in the middle.

Some other unique features that the Aston Martin DB11 adds is a new AeroBlade which has become a trademark addition of Aston Martin cars since 2015. It acts as a virtual spoiler as redirects air through the bodywork.

Interior Review

The interior of the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 has been completely redesigned as they have started from scratch, but they have not gone too much away from their classic GT design. The dashboard has a clean design and uses a wide center stack as the twin rectangular A/C sit between the infotainment screen and its controls. These parts are perhaps familiar with the previous car, but the race-inspired instrument cluster,  the flat-bottom steering wheel and the 12-inch TFT display is all new for this model.

The car also comes with a new TFT infotainment screen which uses rotary control and an optional touchpad. You also get completely updated satellite navigation, an auto-park assist that features a 360-degree camera and a premium  audio system.

The roominess has been significantly improved compared to the DB9 as there have been 2.5 inches added to the wheelbase of this car. This benefits the headroom and legroom specs for the rear passengers and the luggage department is now also very large so you can put in two big trolley bags if you wish.

It brings a twin turbocharged bring in order to output a performance of  600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

The powertrain may be new but the transmission is going to remain the same as the car uses the traditional eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox, which will come with some modifications though in order to fit the new engine.

McLaren tries to expand its super series of vehicles by adding the 2017 McLaren 570 GT model to its lineup. After the 570S and the 540C Coupe, which is unfortunately a Euro-only version, the 570 GT model is going to be a fine and a nice addition to the ever expanding range of McLaren vehicles. This new model brings a lot of intrigue and can very likely topple the popularity of the previous model as it expands with more luggage space besides the already base features that these models have. All of this an even more will be showcased before the release date at the Geneva Auto Show.

The McLaren vehicles are  ultra-fast, daily driver sports car, as they announced their Super Series of cars. They can easily go against whatever Mercedes has to pin against them and even tackle on a Porsche 911 Turbo. The 2017 McLaren 570GT is going to retain those features and bring some added abilities as it is much better suited for long, continent-crushing drives. It has a revised cabin and an elongated panoramic roof. We were a bit surprised of the car retaining its 2 seat configuration as there were some rumors of a 2+2 setup, but McLaren denied this from happening.

The 2017 McLaren 570 GT is going to be built using the MonoCell II carbon-fiber tub which was also used for the 570S and 540C Coupes as McLaren continues to incorporate this kind of way of developing their cars. The great news is that the car has been confirmed for its US release and for more information about all of the specs of this car just keep reading the review.

2017 McLaren 570 GT Price Exterior

The exterior design of the 2017 McLaren 570 GT is actually to follow and borrow a lot from the  570S. The front end  of the car is pretty much the same as it uses a similar P1-inspired styling and aerodynamic design. The trunk lid actually has strong crease lines which are there in order to optimize the air flow over the front fenders of the car and the aero blades below the bumper are there in order to create  an area of high pressure ahead of the radiators.

2017 McLaren 570 GT back light

There are some similarities on the side view of the car with dihedral doors and large side vents  but smaller intakes placed atop the rear fenders. The only change worth mentioning are teh body-colored door inserts that make the 570 GT distinguishable compared to the 570C and 570S models. But the side view also sees a slightly different shape which goes towards the rear end of the car.

The vented hood is now replaced with a side-opening glass hatch which has a gap between the panoramic glass roof and the deck lid. It perhaps brings a less aggressive look for the car but manages to keep it sporty. Btu with these changes the aerodynamics were put off a bit so in order to make things better a  rear spoiler that’s 10 mm taller than the one on other vehicles is used and stabilizes the car very much. There is also a revised deck lid fitted in the lower section of the grille.

Interior Changes of 2017 McLaren 570 GT

There are actually a lot of changes made on the inside of the 2017 McLaren 570 GT, perhaps even more than we have expected it to be. Let’s start with the fixed glass panoramic roof which comes as standard. And because of the extended glass area, the model uses a revised air conditioning system with a dual-zone unit  that is fully automatic and has independent settings for both passengers up front.

2017 McLaren 570 GT seats

One of the more important features of the car is the extended luggage compartment. They are calling it a Touring Deck and is positioned just above the engine and can be accessed using the side opening glass hatch. It adds additional 7.8 cubic feet of storage space and is completely wrapped in leather, making the overall storage space  13.1 cubic feet which is more than impressive for a sports car model.

The model also features a much more quieter cabin which is not only made possible due to the new revised exhaust system but also because of the standard McLaren Audi o Plus sound system and specially developed Pirelli tires. There is an optional eight-speaker audio system features two 100mm  mid/bass drive units and two 25mm tweeters in the rear.

Other features include the heated sports seats upholstered in high-quality leather, eight-way adjustment, a touchscreen for the infotainment and navigation, Nappa leather, a TFT instrument cluster, and carbon-fiber inserts.

Engine specs of 2017 McLaren 570 GT

The 2017 McLaren 570 GT is going to continue with the use of the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 engine that 562 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 443 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm. As this is the same engine that the 570S Coupe, the 570 GT is going to be a tad slower because of the heavier roof. As it is 81 pounds heavier, it needs 3.4 seconds to reach 0-60 mph and has a benchmark speed of 124-mph, which is achieved at 9.8 seconds, while the top speed is 204 mph. You can select the same Normal, Sport and Track driving modes as before as the second two offer a similar experience while the Normal is for softer long distance driving.

But as the US release has been confirmed we are actually given a release date which is going to appear in the end of 2016. So we are getting the 2017 model a bit earlier which is splendid news.

2017 Borgward BX5 Review

Borgward is already set the offer its second model SUV as the 2017 Borgward BX5 is on its way. The model is going to be the second SUV vehicles produced by this company as the BX7 was the one which paved the way and introduced this company which was known in the past for making trucks to the SUV world.

Borgward is a German based company which had lots of success in Europe for making reliable truck vehicles. This was actually around fifthly years ago and the return was surprisingly not marked by a vehicle that they were known for but rather with a seven passenger SUV model dubbed the BX7. The model was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2015 and was a real hit as they managed to incorporate all the necessary aspects inside this model.

This year the 2017 Borgward BX5 is going to be the second SUV model that they are producing and the vehicles was already spotted doing rounds wearing a heavily camouflaged outfit. The model is actually going to be officially presented at the Geneva Auto Show this year, with the release date coming next year. The BX5 is smaller than the initial BX7 and fits in the slot right beneath it. The models are actually a cooperation of the German and Chinese companies and their plan is to offer a three-vehicle lineup for the next year. With the BX7 already into play and with this announcement and review of the BX5, there is going to be another model offered, but more on that when the information become clearer.

2017 Borgward BX5 Exterior

The 2017 Borgward BX5 is going to incorporate quite an interesting design. The model is going to use some new headlights which are going to be largely differ rent than the ones seen on the BX7 model before. The same thing is with the grille, but in this case it is similar as far as the shape is concerned but it is quite different compared to before. It actually has a different slat configuration that looks great for this smaller car and they are also angled toward the sides and have much more chrome. The car is going to have an overall mundane appearance compared to the BX5 and is going to be a complete departure from the BX7 model which it bares small resemblance to.

But there are still lots of similarities that were kept, for instance the  same sculpted engine hood is kept here and the model is going to share the same muscular waistline. The rear end also has the same tailgate design that was used in the previous car and it also uses the same large trapezoidal recess for the the license plate. The taillights are different, the same as the headlights, but the bumper is going to be changed a bit and is going to have a similar look with only few changes.

Interior Changes

There are less information available for the inside of the 2017 Borgward BX5 than it was actually expected. The car has not been showcased officially on the inside, but still there are some things that are obviously going to be used. As the BX7 was a vehicle which actually had a great design as it offered a lot of premium details for a Chinese-built car. This is perhaps going to be the case for the BX5 and they plan to use an impressive amount of premium amenities, like leather-wrapped seats, soft-touch surfaces, some aluminum inserts and contrast stitching.

It will most certainly appoint a  12.3-inch infotainment system  which has an  Apple and Android connectivity and a WiFi hot-spot function. There is a possibility that this model comes with a more affordable package and only provide these kind of equipment as an optional offer. As the model is going to be offered in Europe, these features are going to be mandatory so expect to see them even in the base form.

Engine Specs

What the greatest news about the 2017 Borgward BX5 is that it is going to use the same underpinnings like the BAIC Senova X55, which is perhaps a model not that known for the European market as it is a Chinese-based model which comes with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. But the model is not going to transfer the engine as it was confirmed that the 2.0-liter four-cylinder is going to still be used as it was good in the first round for the BX7.

The model can create 221 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque and can do it from as low as 1,750 rpm. The BX5 is going to use a choice of a six-speed automatic and the seven-seed dual-clutch transmissions. The specs say an acceleration to 0-60 mph of about 9 seconds and a top speed of up to 120-mph.

Release date and price

The thing is that it is quite early to talk about the price of the 2017 Borgward BX5 as there are a lot of things that are unconfirmed that can affect the pricing of the car, particularly for the inside. This is all going to be much easier to assess once the release date comes and it will be officially released after the Geneva Auto Show. The release date is thus expected to be for the later part of 2017 and it will appear in Chine and Europe first with a possible US release date coming by the end of the year.
