2016 Ford F-750 Tonka

Big trucks and playtime sort of a go together one with each other. You may not understand it at first but just thing back to your childhood and you will see how it all makes sense. It made sense to one of the most prominent automakers Ford and its collaboration with the toy making company Tonka to produce a combined efforts heavy duty truck which will be released this year. We are calling it the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka truck and it has been showcased for the first time at NTEA Work Truck Show of this year.

Besides the F-750 they are also releasing the F-650 version at the same time as well. The truck really embraces the Tonka heritage and will be a massive working force when it comes to hauling large amounts of materials, dirt or whatever you may get your hands to. The truck is capable of hauling no less than 17,000 pounds of materials and combined with the workable and very reliable dumping hydraulics can make this car a standard addition to any major job that needs completion.

The truck will be first released as a tour vehicle as it will go around many major truck shows, commercial showcasing or vocational trade shows as well where the truck will demonstrate its massive power and potential. It is scheduled to tour the US throughout the 2015 and you can check the listings to find out if it is close to a place near you so you can see this giant in person. If not this review is also a good way to find out much about the truck.

2016 Ford F-750 Tonka exterior

Well we cannot even begin to describe the look of this vehicle without using the words BIG. The design and massive and enormous and the 2016 Ford F-750 is a very imposing dump truck. The frame of the truck holds a huge front bumper and grille with eh equally enormous hood up front and has a single cab which is also used in the Ford Super Duty assembly. You can notice that this is a Ford design just by looking at the grille of the car. The signature blacked out grille with the nostrils on both sides and some lateral slots is something of a trademark features of Ford. The design is actually inspired by the Ford E-Series utility van which also had the same kind of a concept look.

The truck also has an Econoline visual influence to it, particularly based on the headlights design. The bumper is made out of three pieces which actually makes it a lot easier when repairing the damages that might occur as you do not have to substitute the whole thing but only the ones with the damaged section. There are also cut outs for the hook to be placed and some air vents as well to enable the air flow. The 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka wheels that are part of the design have the same yellow design color to match the truck and are wrapped in highway rubber. In the business end of the truck you can find the twin “Built Ford Tough” mud flaps, a swinging tailgate and trailer hitch complete with D-rings and pintle hitch.

Interior

Currently there have not been any photos about the inside issued but we have some information that can be useful for you to know. First of all, the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka truck is a working man’s truck, so you will not find any comfort enhancing additions inside. There are no wood trims nor are there any leather seats inside. Who needs them anyway! This is a manly truck, real man don’t need any of that! You will not find any entertainment features as well as the truck is bare bone and only has what it needs to get the job done and make the function of the vehicle at a required level. It is mostly based on smaller Super Duty series, and based on this you will know that the truck means business.

Engine

There are actually two engine choices that come inside this massive beast. The first one and the base one inside the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka is the 6.8-liter V-10 engine, but for those who are keep on actually hauling heavier loads a far better option is the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbodiesel choice, yet it does not produce the same amount of power as inside the Super Duty trucks. The standard engine produces 270 horsepower and 675 pound-feet, while the mid outputs is somewhere around 300 horsepower and 700 pound-feet.

But the maximum output is expected at 330 horsepower and 725 pound-feet of torque and it is available for both the F-650 and F-750 version. The second engine choice makes 320 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. and both to the trims will be paired with a  six-speed TorqShift HD transmission.

Price

There are yet no official price ranges available for the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka truck but based on the current findings the car is priced at $55,000 for its starting price. This of course does not include the upgraded engine options and the aftermarket dump bed. When inkling these additions the price may come up to $85,000 or eve $95,000. The truck is currently on tour so there are any talks about the release date nor if and when it will be available for sale.

 

2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

Car enthusiasts will be happy to know that a 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck is on the way. With the first ever release of this truck back in 2010, fans have been swooping around this model and are eagerly awaiting every updated that Ford has to offer about their prized vehicle. The 2017 year model brings many innovations that are surely going to dazzle the public.

The Raptor has always been characterized as being a heavyweight bruiser and will retain these characteristics for the upcoming model as well as it is something that makes up the style of the tuck, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. But the newest design will be updated with so much more, the aluminum bodywork and a beefy high-strength steel frame will combine well with an updated interior. Add to that the new Ford’s EcoBoost technology and a new engine option and you get the new 2017 model all wrapped up and ready to go.

Some may say that the Raptor has lost its mojo and that the new version does not incorporate the soul of a 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, but the car needs to go with times and it is a perfect update for a vehicle like this one. As you can see from the pictures the car does not drastically changes from its rugged stance. It has all the makings of a great truck and Ford has done once more a great job in updating it. Read the review to find out about the particular changes and how the car has been updated.

2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor exterior

The Raptor takes its exterior design to a new level. The 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model adopts some parts that have been taken from the 2015 F-150 model and has been widen to 6 inches more in order to increase its stability. Both the front and rear bumpers have been raised so the approach and departure angles are different now. There is also a very useful change in the headlights as the halogen ones have been exchanged with the LED ones and it helps in providing more light than before. There is going to be a change in wheel size as well as the car will use the 17-inch ones. It uses BFGoodrich’s latest iteration of its iconic All-Terrain TA tire which is the K02 one.

2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

The off-roading ability of the vehicle is very much enhanced with the newest design. Not only will some standard features help, but something like the new tires will help in providing better stability on different types of roads and also enable the car to make it through some of the toughest terrains there is. The side boards will return this model year as well and the same fenders will also be used this time. At the back it has more similarities with the current F-150 car, but does come with a massive “FORD” block lettering that stretches from side to side. But a great new addition is the dual exhaust system which balances the look a bit and even adds the receiver hitch which comes as a standard form of equipment.

Interior

The addition of a F-150 order form lessens that Raptor interior a bit and combines well for a great look. The 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model comes with a very comfy interior and a suitable upgrade of comfort. The best additions are the unique seats with leather and suede inserts. It also comes with an overhead console with six up-fitter switches and controls for the moonroof. There is a new style of steering wheel made which uses the combination of suede and leather-wrapped steering  that comes with a F1-style paddle shifters. It also includes carbon fiber accents which are added in order to dress up the key areas around the cabin.

In the control cluster you will find the large digital display that is a standard feature in any F-150 car. It is a very useful addition as it shows many information simultaneously and enables the car to be fully focused on the driving. It gives you stats about your off-road info, engine performance and some mechanical stats as well. It was also confirmed that an extended cab and crew cab configurations will be offered for the Raptor.

Engine

As for the engine, there are many updates that come available for the 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model. The first update comes in the form of a newly updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6.This engine has been cranked and is more powerful than the previous 6.2-liter V-8. It rates at 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque, but the EcoBoost is said to be able to produce more.  The V-8 engine has loads of power but lacks on efficiency, and thus the EcoBoost has been chosen to fix that, thus the power output of the new engine has been set at some 450 hp. The engine will be combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission with F1-style paddle shifters. It does not only enable better fuel economy stats but it also helps with better gearing abilities as well.

Some special type of features are added this time, like the “Torque-On-Demand” which is used to distribute power to both the front and rear axles with the all-wheel-drive-like system along with a mechanical-locking four-wheel-drive system. Also added is the next-generation Terrain Management System that Ford has introduced here. It enables a choice between six modes which depend on the terrain you are driving on. So you can choose between Normal, Street, Weather, Mud and Sand, Rock, and Baja modes.

Price and release date

The 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will be released as a 2017 model of course, thus the exact release date is unclear but it will certainly arrive and the end of next one or the beginning of 2017. The price needs to be adjusted still but we are fairly certain that it will be around $51,000 base MSRP.

2016 Audi Q7 Review Specs

The 2016 Audi Q7 comes into the 2016 model year with a significant weight loss. Not only that but the car is going to be released with many updates that will provide a better overall performance of the car. With a rakish new sport wagon look, updated and technologically advanced interior and a some advancements in the chassis the new release of a Q7 car is one of the most expected ones on the market. This model also comes with a plug in hybrid option and includes and rear-wheel drive.

This is going to be the second year generation vehicle for the Q7, while its first generation one has been released back in 2007 and was immediately offered in the US market. The first year design has aged well and it seemed as if it was unnecessary to actually update the vehicle. Perhaps some other vehicles in the segment were the ones that needed a style change because the Q7 was the one that set all the style standard.

It dismisses the looks of a traditional SUV car and adopts its own, which was lately the fact the car was so successful to begin with. Its truck influenced cues enabled the car to adopt its sport wagon features in a great sense and make it what it is today. The newest model, as you can see form the pictures, does more than well to update the entire setup and is a very nice evolution of the vehicle. Continue reading the review for more specs and news.

2016 Audi Q7 exterior

The best way to describe the exterior of the 2016 Audi Q7 is that it is far less SUV like and much more Wagon like. The car that has started to change and set some standards in the modern ear of SUV vehicles will continue to do so this time. It continues its own thing and manages to pull it out in a great way. The dimensions have actually remained completely the same and the car uses the same numbers as it did last year. But the difference is that the car looks much slimmer. The styling cues and restyling some of the surface parts has done more than well for the car as it updates very nicely. The dimension change is what some people think that it has happened but it is actually a complete different way the car decide to go with.

2016 Audi Q7 rear side

What has been reshaped a bit is the front part of the car. The changes feature a newly added hexagonal grille which provide the car with more attitude and an added road presence feel. It combines very well with the new and reshaped headlights that also come with some LED components. All of this makes everybody aware that the Q7 is on the road and provide it with clear and branded look for the future.

Interior

The inside of the 2016 Audi Q7 brings us a very friendly environment. An update was not a necessary thing for the inside and yet it happened. But the already perforce inside was only made better with some minor inclusions that the car was given. The inside of the car is a very family friendly inside and does so with the use of the Audi’s trademark look which maybe the best one in the sedan segment. All of the recent releases from Audi sports a similar kind of interior and is what has made them so popular since recent years.

2016 Audi Q7 rear seats

The dashboard is thin and has been placed low and as it is very wide it enables a more logical layout of the controls added and provides much better use for them. The Multi Media interface is what occupies the most part of the dash but perhaps it is also the most important part of it and thus letting it get the upper hand on other components of the car is a logical thing to do. The added driver’s instrument panel has a high resolution screen which is capable of displaying a multitude of information at a time, provide the driver with much needed data when driving.

Engine of 2016 Audi Q7

What is an exciting fact about the car is that it will come with two powertrain options for the 2016 model year. The Audi Q7 is going to make use of a 3.0 TFSI supercharged gasoline V-6, which is rated at 333 horsepower, and a 3.0 TDI turbodiesel V-6, making 272 hp. There has been an announcemnt that a e-tron quattro model is on the way with a plug in hybrid option that combines with a diesel engine. With a full charged battery it can rack up to 30 miles and has the capacity of attaining 373 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. It acceleration from 0-60 mph is rated at just under 6 seconds and it can develop a top speed of 140 mph.

Price and release date

The 2016 Audi Q7 is certainly going to be released next year but there are no announcements on when exactly. There are some rumors that say that it will be offered at the end of next year which is a disappointing fact for most of the fans. But as there is no price ranges available yet this might be a rumor that holds more truth inside it than most of them.

2016 Chevrolet Trax

If you value practicality over power and style, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is the vehicle for you. With a useful hatchback shape and some nifty fuel economy specs, the car is a very useful vehicle for city drivers and from getting through a tough jam on the road. It is a perfect vehicle for city dwellers and poses a very nice package for any person who wants to take it out for a drive.

The Chevrolet Trax is a vehicle that belongs to a new breed of crossover vehicles that have started to emerge all over. It is a vehicle for a contemporary person and style wise goes with the same sort of look. Comparing it with its sibling, the Equinox vehicle, this one comes with a larger level of different amenities and for a lower price at that. It is also hosts least-expensive all-wheel drive on the market.

Honestly speaking, the Chevrolet Trax is a less fancy version of the Encore car from Buick. This is because of the fact that both cars are built on the Chevrolet Sonic architecture and it took a while for the car to come to the US market because of this. The thing is that the crash test ratings were not satisfactory and that the car needed some time in order to get to the market when the numbers were fixed. With the enhanced safety features and a bunch of all new stuff the 2016 Chevrolet Trax lands at our doors and we are excited to have it and welcome it. Read the rest of the review to find out why.

 

2016 Chevrolet Trax exterior

As we mentioned, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax shares the underpinnings form the Chevrolet Sonic car and is basically a less expensive Buick Encore car. But there is a lot more going for the Trax that you did not know nor expected. Chevy has decided to add some truck characteristics to its car, of course this is only style wise speaking, and it goes well for the overall look. The car has two-box small hatchback body and is taller looking as well. The greatest difference with the Encore is that it does not uses the swoopy liens that this car has but actually incorporates a bit of a square look. It makes the exterior bland enough that it does make the look generic enough to be as inoffensive as possible.

2016 Chevrolet Trax side

Perhaps a small throwback is the fact that the base SL version rides on the wheels that made of steel and have silver plastic wheel covers. The base level displays its inexpensive nature with black door-mirror pedestals and the missing chrome beltline strip. The roof line is the same for all trim levels of the car and shows the budget nature of the car that Chevy is going for this year. The higher trim levels get some better wheels though, as you can get some 16-inch alloy wheels one in the LT trim and 18-inch allow on the LTZ level.

2016 Chevrolet Trax rear side

 

Interior

Inside the Trax, it has managed to adopt the Chevy’s twin cockpit interior combination in a great way so as it has a more practical use, utilitarian look and overall a much upright configuration. The instrument cluster is the same as seen in the Chevy Sonic, as it uses tachometer paired with a 3.5-inch monochrome display screen which has a numeric speedometer with various other bar gauges and warning lights.

2016 Chevrolet Trax interior

This is not the only thing that characterizes the new Trax as it comes with a black-cloth upholstery that are made with some light oblong shapes on it. Combined with the contrasting blue stitching gives a nice touch to the inside of the car and enhances the atmosphere of the inside to a whole different level. The higher level can come with an added look changes so the LTZ for instances uses two-tone vinyl upholstery with some patterned trim over parts of the console to relieve the black interior that is present in all of the interiors of the Trax. This makes the 2016 Chevrolet Trax much more practical and both the combinations of the inside and out bring to a completely stylish car.

Engine

Under the hood of the new 2016 Chevy Trax you will find an engine which is present in all of the trim levels of the car. It uses the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. The engine can make a peak torque output from just 1,850 rpm. It also combines with a six-speed automatic transmission system that has a wide range of gear ratios which accounts for a relatively quick acceleration of the car. The Fuel economy specs are perhaps the best one in the class as the car can make 9 mpg combined for the front-wheel-drive version, or 27 mpg with the all-wheel drive. All in all, a suitable engine setup for the car that provides you with just what you ask from it.

Price and released date

The Chevrolet Trax is going to be available from next year and it is going to receive a release date come January. It will be offered for the first time at the US and Canadian market so we are presuming that the car is going to receive higher sales than last year and that the popularity of it will rise because of its inclusion to some new markets. This may also be achieved as the car has a very low price range, as it comes available at a base MSRP of just 20,300 USD.

 

 

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

All of you thrill seekers and people who are looking for performance cars, the new addition from GT has arrived. We are presenting to you the new 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 car that has been recently announced Porsche. Finally the wait is over and the car has received its release date. This vehicle will have all the essential driving characteristics that are needed form a performance car. It will fuse many parts that are offered from other models that have recently been showcased and bring it under one roof for the Cayman GT4 car.

According to the initial testing, the car has been able to drive a lap around the famous Nurburgrign in just 7 minutes 40 seconds time. This puts the car along some greats like the 2011 911 GT3 car. Porsche is upping the ante with the production of this vehicle and it also adds some overall utility that was not to be expected. The redesign of the chassis and the addition of new breaks, the development of the engine and enhancing the aerodynamics of the vehicle all works well.

There have been many assumption on what the engine is going to actually use. From a hybrid powertrain to a turbocharged four-cylinder one. But what is actually going to be used was a well-kept secret till now. Read on the entire review to find out the newest details about the release of the Cayman GT4 from Porsche and decided whether the update is a good one for the vehicle.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 exterior

What Porsche tried to achieve with the Cayman GT4 is to make it stand out compared with all of the non-GT vehicles. They have did well in incorporating all the needed features of a performance vehicles and stayed true to the traditional look, but also managed to squeeze in a load of updates to make the car a new and modern one. The firstly noticeable addition is the GT wing added to the back which enables the stability at greater speeds and also provides a cool unique look for the Cayman. The front bumper receives some larger air inlets and a chin spoiler to boot. All of these additions account for providing down force to stabilize the car at large speeds and make the handling better.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

The ride height of the car has also been dropped. The 2016 Cayman GT4 has a height of 1.2 inches dropped compared to the previous vehicle. This actually fits well with the low set tires and snuggles them very appropriately continuing this look. Overall speaking the design of this 2016 model does not deviate that much from the original design, except for the added wing of course. The car has been beefed up which is the most appropriate description of the change the car has gone though.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 rear

Interior

The inside of the 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 is your typical sport vehicle interior. It features all the standard equipment you would expect from a sport car. There are some sports seats matted in the inside which have comfortable leather upholsteries and some Alcantara leather as well. It provides lateral support at great speeds and provides you with even more comfort than you have expected. The small steering wheel is also a part of the inside as most sport cars features a small size wheel like this one.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 inside

But there are some added or optionally added goodies that you can choose to get inside the car. For instance, race bucket seats are a very good addition to the inside and makes you feel like you are participating in a real race. The ones that you can get are comprised of pure carbon fiber. You can also opt for a Sport Chrono Package. The past Porsche vehicles got a performance display with this package, both digital and analogue, and the cars also receive a go-faster “Sport Plus” button. What this button does is to stiffen suspension, quickens steering, sharpens throttle response and includes several other useful racing features. A special kind of an addition is the “Track Precision App” which leaves you with additional and necessary info that you can get.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

Engine

The all new vehicle from Porsche uses a naturally aspirated, 3.8-liter flat-six engine. This enables the Cayman GT4 vehicle to produce a power output of 385 horsepower, and it does so by using a standard six-speed manual transmission equipped with dynamic gearbox mounts. The setup does not include an optional automatic shifter. The chassis has been made mostly using the components borrowed from  the 911 GT3”, and the result is that the GT4 is able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and develop a top speed of 183 mph. The stopping power is attained using the l Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system while the suspension has been lowered for an entire inch.

Price and release date

As the Porsche Cayman base model costs around $52,600 which is not at all a bad price, you will have to spare some more if you want to get the GT4 one. It will come with a price tag of 84,600, but this is a performance car that is worth every penny of the money spent on it. The car has received its release date and will be available for sale in January next year.

2017 Hyundai Equus Specs, Spy Shots

Ever since the Hyundai Equus has been introduced to the US market back in 2010, the vehicle has been gaining popularity and has been expanding on its fan base. It makes perfect sense that the car should receive an update and a new model that will be available in the US as the people there are certainly willing to pay that a luxury full-size sedan demands. The recent spy shots that we have been getting show us that a 2017 Hyundai Equus is on the verge.

The photos that have emerged show us a wrapped Equus vehicle that is doing its cold-weather testing near the Arctic circle. The first sight of the car shows us that it has gone fairly along its development and will be nearing completion really soon. As Hyundai has already announced its lineup for the 2016 model year, it is fair to assume that the Equus is scheduled for the next one as a 2017 model.

Compteriors like Mercedes and Lexus have already produced their vehicles for the upcoming 2016 model year and we must say that they are a tough act to follow. With the recent development and rise of the Hyundai Equus is the luxury mid-size department we can say with certainty that this car has got what it needs to be even better. As we are waiting for the official release date to be given you can study the review and find out all about the potential price of the car and its specs that it will produce.

2017 Hyundai Equus exterior

With the debut of the Hyundai Equus in 2010 the car presented some groundbreaking points that were an impossible feat for the competition to follow. The car presented a massive breakthrough in luxury and size and was something that people were amazed immediately on release. But in fact it was a step back in the design properties that the car had. Well they have been building up to a point when this could be changed as it was something that affected this car and what did not allow it to become even greater that it should be.

2017 Hyundai Equus rear spy shots

The new 2017 model will have a more aggressive stance to it and will be a massively updated and redesigned vehicle. The car is going to adopt some of the characteristics of a Genesis Sedan car and will have more aggressiveness and attitude that way. As see so far, the new Equus will have a more upright grille design and some horizontal LED headlights. The back part of the car will include the new vertical taillights, similar to the ones seen in the Mercedes S-Class, and multi-spoke wheels and integrated exhaust outlets with add more style to the car. It will have squared-off roofline which will leave the car with a profile similar to a Camry vehicle.

Interior

The inside is the part which has been leased discuss so far. But as this is going to be a 2017 release, there is still time to get better acquainted with the inside setup of the upcoming Hyundai Equus vehicle. What we do know is that the car is going to use the same styling points that are seen in the Genesis Sedan and the next-gen Sonata cars. It will employ some  high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum which will add to the rigidness of the car but at the same time make the car smoother and quieter. They are not going to disappoint when it comes to the luxury of the cabin and also we are assuming that a fully technologically upgraded inside is something that will happen. Let just wait some more to see what Hyundai is going to announce about the inclusion inside.

2017 Hyundai Equus rear side

2017 Hyundai Equus interior

Engine

The story so far for the Hyundai Equus vehicles that have been introduced in the US market is that they have all used the same drivetrain so far, the  5.0-liter V-8, an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. Not to say that it is a bad engine setup, but it is perhaps one of the faults as they have not managed to introduce another engine option for this long as it seems that this is something that the fans would really enjoy. But it seems that the 2017 model may address this issue and introduce a new engine option. All cars are set on it being the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 as well as the HTRAC all-wheel-drive system. There are even some talks of improving the current engine and making it more fuel efficient. The vehicle will certainly get a refresh in the 2019 model year when the 10-speed automatic will be introduced for the next-gen Equus but for now they are going to stick to a current eight-speed automatic transmission for sure.

Price and release date

As this is all based on assumptions and the spy photos that have been introduced, we can expect the next Hyundai Equus to appear in the first quarter of 2017. The car already looks as if it is nearing completion so it will not take too long to develop completely. The current price of the Equus is around $60,000 and people who have afforded to buy the previous one will certainly opt for the new one upon its release. We assume that the figure will rise this time to no more than $70,000 for the 2017 Hyundai Equus.

There are also confirmation which say that the car will have an all-wheel drive features which will be given as a standard offer, but there are not still confirmations on which engine is going to be used at the end. There are some rumors that say that the car will features a 5.2-liter V10 engine which is going to be borrowed from the Huracán LP610-4, or in fact it is going to be a smaller V-8 engine that makes it on the inside. But what will help the car achieve the aforementioned spend and power levels is not going to be thanks to the engine alone, but also to the lightweight materials that are going to be of paramount essence with this.

Price and release date

The Lamborghini Urus is planned to be released and showcased in 2018. The initial plan is to present the vehicle at one of the major auto shows at the beginning of the year to let the fans get a taste on what the car is going to actually be like. As this is still far away there are no indications to guess which show is actually it going to be. But shortly after the car is going to receive a release date and will be offered at a base price that is already predicated of being somewhere in the neighborhood of $200,000. As this is going to be a vehicle that is aimed at being a daily driver it is predicted that it will make a major impact on the market then.

Exterior

The exterior of the car may be described as ludicrous but in fact it may become one of the most important cars of ne next era and become a standard for many vehicles to come. The 2018 Lamborghini Urus will be designed based on the Audi Q7/Bentley Bentayga underpinnings. This is seen from the concept of the vehicle that was showcased and that can be seen from most of the recently released pictures. The chairman of Lamborghini announced that the car is going to be much similar to the concept vehicle and that it will mostly retain its rakish look with which the car has been showcased in the concept.

The production plant where the vehicle is going to be built is going to go through an expansion process and will invest a lot in it before it starts to produce the car. It is going to be one of the most modern facilities for vehicle production and they are thus planning to make this modern car right there. With the new features of the power plant so will the new features of the car be born. They plan to use some lightweight materials for the car, perhaps carbon fiber, to boost the performance. It will showcase the best a future car has to offer and will represent speed, agility and quickness at the same time.

Interior

The inside is going to have a look which will also be similar to the concept model that was showcased before. Well there is not an easy way to predict what the inside is going to be like. Well the technology will expand till 2018 so the Lamborghini Urus will have the latest that the technology can bring then. In order to make the car as better as possible it will come with an abundance of modern equipment. As that is something that is for sure we also think that some enhanced comfort features are in order. We are predicting many things for the Urus but we cannot be a hundred percent certain at this point at there are many changes that may occur till the release of the car and many factors that can affect the inside look at the end.

2016 Cadillac CT6 Review

The long wait is over and the Cadillac CT6 is going to be released soon. The car has been showcased at the 2015 New York Auto Show for the first time and it was the first look that fans have managed to glimpse at the new production model form Cadillac. After years of assumptions, spy photos and various kinds of rumors the car finally became a reality and we give you this review to finally get to know all the specs about it. The new design of the CT6 brings us a car which is closer to the European luxury models. It has revised its dimensions and now holds a wheelbase which is the same as in the BMW 7 Series vehicles. But thanks to the newly incorporated materials the car weighs as much as a smaller CTS car as it mostly uses aluminum. This is a peculiar strategy from the makers from Cadillac and brings us something that could be hard to perceive for the future outcomes.

The car is expected to reach production early in 2016 and it is when the exact release date will be announced. For now the only showcase was at New York and you will be able to find a lot about it through this review. Check out the exclusive pictures that have been released about the Cadillac CT6 so you get a better rendition about the car.

At first it was announced that the car was going to feature a design based on the Elmiraj Concept’s styling, but this was actually not the case. Upon the vehicle’s release many rumors have been shed when the car actually appearing sporting an entirely different look. It actually incorporates an evolutionary progression of the Art and Science styling of the current  CTS and ATS sedans. At first this was something of a disappointment for the fans, but the new look which pronounces dash-to-axle ratio  and has a short front overhang actually emphasizes the  luxury-car proportions that the car now has and its rear-wheel drive  as well.

The front part of the vehicle is very nice looking and actually it appears as if it has been chiseled from a solid block. The vertical headlights frame the new grille design which is similar looking as the ones seen in the CTS and ATS designs. The sides are more generic looking and its new shape will actually provide better comfort on the inside and add some additional spacing. The rear is a typical Cadillac that you can see from many of the vehicles in their production line. The angular style is very clean and there are no additional lines that may disturb this look.

Interior

The inside is where the 2016 Cadillac CT6 makes a more distinguishing mark and uses some lines and characteristics which are going to be trademark for itself. It does not have many similarities to the other cars from the Cadillac lineup and only carries over the CUE infotainment system. The CT6 can boost with perhaps the largest amount of in-class interior storage, as it has 2.2-liter center console storage volume. The center console also uses a 0.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display. There is even a smaller touchpad on the arm rest that you can also use if it is easer for you that way. Also some highly advanced gadgets are put inside with the 360-degree camera view around the vehicle or a night vision system.

Cadillac also announces that the 2016 CT6 uses the industry’s first application of full-display technology, which means that the interior mirror is combined with the rear camera in order to provide us with a look at the rear of the car. The 360-degree camera system can also be used to record the front and back view of the car and provided to you. Worth mentioning is also the quad-zone climate control system and a Bose audio system with 34 speakers placed around the cabin.

Powertrain

Under the hood of the 2016 Cadillac CT6 there is going to be the twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter, V-6  which can approximately develop around 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine uses cylinder deactivation technology and with the smaller overall weight of the car can provide wonderful specs and performances for the CT6 car. It is also paired with a light-speed automatic transmission as well.

There is the second option which means using the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. It pairs with a all-wheel-drive system and a continuously variable clutch that delivers power to the front wheels. A special kind of a feature for this engine is the use of Magnetic Ride Control and Active Rear Steer, which is used for the first time in a Cadillac vehicle.
