2017 Subaru Legacy Release Date

The new 2017 Subaru Legacy is a solid pick for anyone looking for a standard AWD drive, top crash test scores, lots of standard safety features, and an excellent exterior visibility. Its release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017. 

The new 2017 Subaru Legacy comes basic with an AWD, which is a potentially and unusual likable trait for a contemporary family sedan. We are particularly impressed by the quality of the interior fittings, but compared to its more mainstream competitors, the Legacy’s dashboard design is a little stark.

The simple and straightforward interior design of the new model is highlighted by Subaru’s no-nonsense approach to car design. Common touch points such as the center console and armrests have been offered with soft-touch materials, whereas the touchscreen navigation system offered as an option comes with easy-to-use crisp graphics thanks to the large icons and smartphone-like operability.

The front seats are comfortable and are offered with plenty of front headroom. Further aback, the 15-cubic-foot trunk trails the competition while the head- and legroom are slightly less than those offered by Ford Fusion and Honda Accord. Even so, the Legacy is nevertheless roomy for a small family sedan.

Things remain same as before under the 2017 Subaru Legacy hood. It however comes a bit short in the way it drives. It’s less cushy and a bit slower than its competition. Both the six- and four-cylinder engine are smooth and quiet, but the acceleration is mediocre. On the upside, though, the standard all-wheel drive gives it a good resume especially when the prevailing conditions are mundane.

Around turns, the newest Subaru Legacy is easy to drive and precise, but an abundance of lean or body roll inhibits the car from feeling truly sporty.

Many quirks inhibit the 2017 Subaru Legacy appeal nevertheless. Some of them include a lackluster acceleration, and a stiffer ride relative to its competition. Owners love Subarus, and we, in particular, love the Legacy. The brand loyalty is almost mind-boggling, but this is a strongly competitive segment loaded with very compelling and appealing options.

In terms of driver enjoyment, technology, and styling, these rivals are your best bet; the 2017 Toyota Camry, the 2017 Mazda 6, the 2017 Ford Fusion, 2017 Nissan Altima, and 2017 Honda Accord.

2017 Subaru Legacy Engine Specs

Inspiration for the 2017 Subaru Legacy is derived from a four-cylinder 2.5L and a 3.6L V6 engines. The base engine pairs to a CVT with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters which transmits the power generated – 175 hp and 174 lbs. ft. of torque to the AWD system.

The V6, on the other hand, generates 256 horsepower and 247 pounds-ft. of torque and is offered with the same transmission as the base engine. All mills are offered with a standard AWD system.

Zipping from 0-60 miles with the Legacy 2.5i Premium needs 9.4 seconds. This is a dreary acceleration relative to what the competition offers, as many of its direct rivals achieve the same sprint in under 8.0 seconds.

2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate

GMC is taking the range-topping capability, craftsmanship, and style of the Sierra Denali a notch higher with the all-new 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate. The new model comes laden with standard features, a head-turning design, and a luxury and performance to behold. Its release date, although speculative as of this writing, should be expected sometime during the 1st quarter of 2017.

The new vehicle has been built with a sense of style and perfection that very few cars, irrespective of the body design, can boast of. The design, comfort, and capability has been elevated by precision-crafted features. This, according to GMC has been necessitated by the fact that the segment offers a plethora of rivals and therefore staying at the top requires a vehicle to seamlessly combine function with style without jeopardizing the performance. That is exactly what the GMC has done with the Denali Ultimate.

2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate side

Duncan Aldred – the vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, in his presentation while unveiling the Ultimate, said “the new 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate is refined, bold, and offers advanced features that makes the ultimate expression of what a Sierra Denali, in general,  is all about.”

The Ultimate comes in a segment that already has a significant number of GMC models, but each is designed for a specific niche and functionality. Since 2013, pundit reports allege the full-size truck segment has grown tenfold and nearly doubled by 2015. A market share of about 15.5% is held by GMC alone.

Even with this features and technologies (detailed below), the new 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate has an uphill task (really?) in trying to ward off rivals nipping at its heels such as the 2017 Ford F-150 Limited model. The F-150 offers just about every feature in terms of amenities and equipment as BMW, Cadillac, and Mercedes.

The other rival is the 2017 RAM 1500 Laramie Limited, which just like the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate and the 2017 Ford F-150, offers a well-appointed cabin in terms of standard features, real wood accents, leather coverings, and yards of accent stitching.

Up front, the new Ultimate comes with GMC LED signature lighting, high-performance LED headlights and taillights, and an all-new Denali grille. In overall, the exterior now comes with a new grille, bumper, hood, and new color add-ons that make it appear modern and sophisticated.

Its interior, on the other hand, comes laden with futuristic materials and technologies such as a navigation system, standard USB ports, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Denali-themed screen graphics, and an 8” diagonal Customizable Driver Display.

Other features include power adjustable pedals, a rear-vision camera with dynamic guidelines, power-sliding rear window with defogger, remote vehicle start, wireless phone charging, Bose premium sound system, and OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi connectivity.

Also, cabin trimmings are available such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 12-way power adjustable vented and heated front leather bucket, contrast stitching, and soft-touch materials. Additional equipment should be expected on its release date.

2017 Toyota Prius Review

2017 Toyota Prius is interesting toy for older boys and here we can see why. If you’re looking for highlights such as impressive fuel economy ratings, improved driving position, a generous cargo space, and a notably hush interior, look no further than the 2017 Toyota Prius. The vehicle offers plenty of upscale materials and technologies as well. Its release date should be expected sometime during the 2nd Q of 2017.

The redesigned 2017 Toyota Prius has a styling unlike anything we’ve seen before, unless you count the hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai, which seems to have been the inspiration. Its reputation as a fuel efficient vehicle has been upheld strongly by the new model, and offers an impressive fuel consumption rating relative to what the segment offers.

The exterior design, and to some extent the interior design, has radically changed and it might prove challenging to like especially for current users of the model who’d want to upgrade their vehicles to the 2017 version. Toyota isn’t coasting on its success, in fact, the company is continuing to dominate in the hybrid market.

2017 Toyota Prius spy shots

Although the most appealing and compelling aspect of owning the Prius would be because of its impressive fuel economy ratings, the new model offers plenty of other appealing items that you wouldn’t expect it to boast of. Let’s talk of space: the Prius offers plenty of leg- and headroom for its users and even tall drivers will find it comfortable. Further aback, the cargo volume, though it might not be the best in the segment, is still voluptuous enough to offer adequate space for every passenger’s cargo.

2017 Toyota Prius design

Under the hood, Toyota hasn’t made any substantial changes with its suspension being the greatest beneficiary. Other changes include a slightly better acceleration and a quieter ride quality. The power output remains unaltered.

Interior wise, the seats are comfortable and supportive and you’ll find driving for long distances less tiring than before. The odd-seating position has been overhauled by the more natural oriented-seat design. In a nutshell, the Prius seems to have gotten most things right this time round (not that the previous model was disappointing either).

But even with all these features in place, the 2017 Toyota Prius seems to suffer from several things such as a less spacious backseat like in the previous model, a polarizing styling, and offset gauges. Other than that, the 2017 Toyota Prius is more than your liking.

Other alternatives in the segment include the 2017 Ford Fusion, the 2017 Chevrolet Volt, and the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

2017 Toyota Prius Engine Specs

Under the hood of the four-door, five-passenger 2017 Toyota Prius is a combination of a four-cylinder 1.8L engine and a pair of electric motors working in synergy to produce about 121 horsepower. This power is then fed to the front wheels via the Continuously Variable Transmission system.

It will only take you about 9.8 seconds to get past 60 mph with the 2017 Toyota Prius Three. This is a solid acceleration considering the previous 2017 Toyota Camry takes 2.1 seconds more to zoom past the same mark.

EPA says we should expect a fuel return of about 50/54/52 mpg on the highway/city/combined. However, those looking for more frugality should consider opting for the astonishing 53/58/56 mpg rating for the new Prius Two model.

2017 Jeep Renegade

It is rewarding to drive, yet still practical. The 2017 Jeep Renegade is proof that Jeep playfulness and styling can translate to a successful subcompact crossover. Highlights for 2017 include lots of character, plenty of technologies and an excellent handling. Its release date, although marred with a lot of speculations, should be anticipated in early 2017.

Critics and fans alike were concerned about whether there was a possibility of a subcompact crossover wearing the badge of an automaker whose reputation was solely built on off-road prowess. For starters, this was because Jeep was popularly known for building small crossovers like the Compass and Patriot whose performance, in all fairness, was largely underwhelming.

Hopefully, with several test drives under our belts, we can confidently confirm those fears to be tenuous. The Renegade is a capable off-roader just like other subcompact crossover SUVs. It is easy to drive and offers lots of practicality except for interior space.

2017 Jeep Renegade with cargo

It does the job of soaking up bumps and potholes well with its revised suspension, therefore offering a well-cushioned ride quality that makes it a peach on the road. Interior wise, you should expect lots of leg- and headroom and bright trimmings. The ride quality of the top-of-the-range Trailhawk, for some, might be rather rough-and-tumble, but offers an unparalleled off-road ability in reparation.

The Renegade is also a cinch to place on the road considering its small footprint. It’s also convenient when it comes to navigating tight roads or when maneuvering parking spaces. There are, however, some idiosyncrasies that prevent the Renegade from topping in the segment. It offers a small cargo area that’s inconvenient for long road trips. The fuel economy and acceleration are mediocre, while the automatic transmission seems confused and clunky.

It is for these reasons that we recommend other alternatives in the segment. They include the voluptuous and easy-to-drive 2017 Honda HR-V, the more powerful, and engaging 2017 Mazda CX-3, the serious 2017 Subaru Crosstrek off-roader, and, finally, the similarly equipped and capable 2017 Fiat 500X.

2017 Honda Accord 

With its refresh this year, the new 2017 Honda Accord continues to be a top contender in the family sedan class. Highpoints include exceptional handling and ride quality, spacious interior accommodations, available coupe body style, quick acceleration, and efficient and refined engines. The 2017 Honda Accord release date should be expected sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

As is the norm for any top-grossing vehicle, the 2016 Honda Accord grabbed headlines owing to its appealing features. Honda hopes the same will continue into 2017, as its newest Accord has received quite a significant refresh that has bettered its performance and refined its interior technologies.

The infotainment system now offers better response times, and the audio and climate controls are well-laid out and driver-centric. The suspension is better and so is the handling and steering. These and many more changes add to an already “A” rated Accord sedan.

Both fascias have been revised and now look bolder than before. Different wheel designs are offered depending on the trim model chosen. The changes and redesigns continue inside. Some of the new technologies and materials to expect include full leather upholstery, metallic and wood trimmings, distinct exterior colors, blind-spot monitor with rear cross traffic alerts, lane-departure alert and mitigation, cruise control, and adaptive cruise control.

As noteworthy as the updates for 2017 are, they’re only sprucing an already “A” rated vehicle that has got most of the right correct. Impressive features such as powerful yet efficient engines, plenty of interior space, responsive handling, and ride composure continue into 2017. Additionally, its reputation for trouble-free ownership is another compelling reason why you ought to wait for the freshest Accord.

Some of the foibles you should prepare for include a dim-witted adaptive cruise control, a flimsy touchscreen interface, and a hyperactive collision warning system. Aside from that, the Accord does nearly everything right, and therefore deserves a top spot in its segment ratings. Those who’d want to check what the competition offers should check out the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Mazda 6, and the Volkswagen Passat.

2017 Audi Q7 Review Specs

With highlights such as numerous advanced safety features, luxurious and quiet interior, a strong performance, and a cutting-edge technology, the 2017 Audi Q7 is perhaps the most established three-row luxury crossover in the SUV class today. In fact, it is so darn excellent that it has managed to be one of our top picks. Its release date should be expected sometime during the latter half of 2017.

The redesigned Q7, after a one-year hiatus, has finally come back better and more refined than ever before. It looks and feels bold and sophisticated and previous users will definitely love it. This will be the first redesign the Q7 has had ever since it debuted in the segment almost a decade ago.

Although it seems a long time, the changes and redesigns in the new model are worth the wait. Notable changes are conspicuous throughout its interior and exterior facets, it has imposing angular lines, a sharper-looking style, and comes with a profile of a wagon. Inside, you’ll notice notable dissimilarities from the previous model in terms of technologies and surface materials as well.

2017 Audi Q7 side

It might be Audi’s biggest crossover SUV, but you’ll be surprised at how friendly it is to drive, and how it zips around corners. It offers an impressive view of the road ahead and with the adaptive air suspension system and four wheel drive fitted, it will be hard to differentiate it from a sedan as it becomes appealingly nimble around turns.

The impress doesn’t stop there. This might be the only crossover SUV of its size that can almost drive itself. It’s almost seamless data collection from cameras and sensors can (if you let it) maintain speed, monitor proximity of other vehicles on the front, back and sideways, and even read speed limits on city or highway limits. Talk about technology, eh!

Besides relieving you from a long-distance tedium, it is ultimately geared towards a full autonomy. High-quality materials are used extensively in the cabin and help it to maintain its luxury status. You get exceptional comfort regardless of the cruising distance. And even with its massive weight, it still manages to boost its fuel economy relative to its competition. Audi also says the new model has shed few hundred pounds, and with such a feat comes several benefits such as better handling and steering, and fuel economy, too.

As things stand, nitpicking can only yield a less voluptuous cargo capacity as the only drawback to owning a Q7. Notable rivals in the segment include the 2017 BMW X5, the 2017 Volvo XC90, 2017 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, and the 2017 Acura MDX.

2017 Nissan GT-R

Although grey areas are starting to show, the new 2017 Nissan GT-R still manages to offer an easy-to-drive nature and an Olympian powertrain that holds plenty of appeal. Highlights for 2017 include a very high handling limit, and a stupefying acceleration. Its release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017. 

Ever since the GT-R arrived on our shores seven years ago, it has consistently embodied the concept of maximizing bang for your back, which is a rarity in the automobile world. The same is true even for the new 2017 model that promises to offer a supercar performance that should be able to make both the Audi R8 and the 911 Turbo run for their money.

Then, you only needed about $70,000 for a 485-hp model, but as Nissan has continued to improve and better the performance and standing of the GT-R on the market so has the price continued to rise and now reigns in the region of six figures.

Upon entering its interior, you’ll realize the GT-R combines user-friendly controls and a driver-oriented cockpit which you’d normally expect from a sport coupe. Also, the column-mounted shift paddles and well-bolstered seats make it easy for the driver to focus his attention on the business at hand. Everything is intricately placed where it should be and within easy reach.

Getting in and out of the GT-R is a snap, unlike some cars with similar performance. The doors and long and the seating position relatively high. The front seats are comfortable and offer good support and are surprisingly relaxing even for an occasional road trip. And opting for the Nismo and Black Edition models will offer even more seat bolstering suited for an aggressive driving.

Driving the GT-R is another interesting aspect. Chucking it into a corner, any corner, and it sticks through the bend and rockets out the other side effortlessly. Even with so many desirable features, nitpicking has yielded several idiosyncrasies. The GT-R doesn’t evoke the same kind of passion as other exotics, the Nismo model is offered with a very big price premium, the road noise is intrusive, and the transmission has a clunky around-town behavior.

That said, few rivals are offered for the new 2017 Nissan GT-R. They include the Porsche 911 Carrera S, Dodge Viper, Aura NSX, and the Corvette Z06.

Available Trims – 2017 Nissan GT-R

Three trim levels – Black Edition, Premium, and Nismo – are offered for the four-passenger 2017 Nissan GT-R coupe.

The GT-R Premium – the base model, offers standard features such as LED adaptive headlights, power driver seat (eight way), Brembo brakes, heated front seats, LED running lights, a 7” touchscreen display, an active-noise activation system, an adaptive suspension, an 11-speaker audio system, a navigation system, satellite radio, a four-way power front passenger seat, keyless entry and ignition, summer-rated tires, 20” forged wheels, simulated suede upholstery, a CD player, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rearview camera, and automatic dual-zone climate control.

The GT-R Black Edition adds unique black and red interior trim, rear spoiler (carbon fiber), black alloy lightweight wheels, and Recaro front sport leather seats.

Finally, the GT-R Nismo adds an even more potent engine, a titanium exhaust system, a solid suspension tuning, body reinforcements, unique interior trim, and aerodynamic upgrades. Of course more details such as packages, interior trim colors, and standalone options should be expected on its release date.

2017 Nissan GT-R Engine Specs

Inspiration for the 2017 Nissan GT-R 3.8L turbocharged V6 engine that lies beneath its hood. A six-cylinder then takes the power generated – 550 hp and 463 lbs. ft. of torque – to the advanced all-wheel drive system.

The performance-themed Nismo model gets a tweaked version of this V6 that is able to churn out about 600 hp and 481 lbs-ft. of torque. Zipping from 0-60 mph only needs under 3.2 seconds. EPA fuel economy numbers are estimated to be around 16/22/19 mpg in the city/highway/combined.

2017 Nissan Maxima 

Although not in a true luxury-car territory, the new 2017 Nissan Maxima is more exciting than a typical family sedan thanks to clever engineering and feature such as a sporty driving character, upscale and quiet interior, and plenty of features for the money. Its release date should be expected sometime in the middle of next year. 

Nissan has redesigned the Maxima in order to make a more appealing as a mainstream family sedan or an entry-level luxury car. This has been necessitated by the fact that it has had a too similar resume to Nissan’s Altima and a rather conservative styling, which has proven a hard sell for Nissan in recent years.

Seasoned drivers of the Maxima will realize how dramatic-looking the new model is judging by the changes and add-ons that the new model now offers. Its length has been improved by about 2.2” and now sits 1.3” lower than the outgoing model, therefore, enabling better aerodynamics and a sleeker styling. Efficiency and handling has also received some improvements in terms of losing some curb weight, while improving the structural rigidity.

Under the hood, changes to expect include a more powerful engine yet thrifty at the pump. Interior wise, the seats are comfortable and offer ample support even for long distance travel. The upper trims, in particular, come with a sporty and premium feel thanks to the leather and simulated suede upholstery used extensively on the cabin.

However, in the quest of achieving a superb entry level luxury sedan, several features have been forfeited. The SR model offers a rather firm ride, the trunk and backseat do not offer ample space, and overall interior refinement is just above-average.

Thus, it would be prudent to check what the competition offers before deciding. They include the Buick LaCrosse, Acura TLX, the Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Azera, Audi A4, Kia Cadenza, and the Hyundai Genesis. But even with such intimidation, the new Maxima is appealing for those seeking a fun and affordable family sedan.

Rumors in industry circles allege Nissan is designing another engine for the Maxima, but the exact details are veiled, we, however, hope that Nissan will make them public before the Maxima’s release date.

Zipping from 0-60 mph only needs about 6.2 seconds, according to Nissan. EPA says the fuel economy should check in at an impressive 30/22/25 mpg on the highway/city/combined.
