This was a premise about the vehicle which dominant in the 60s and the news about its revival started to emerge in 2014. But it was only at the latest Geneva Auto Show when these rumors were put to rest as the confirmation about the model coming out sometime in 2018 and its potential release date have been confirmed.

Fiat finally came clean and announced that it was going to make a roadster car using the underpinnings borrowed from the Mazda MX-5 model. It was more than clear that the Fiat 124 Spider was the vehicle in question fans were even more excited when they heard that it is the performance-orientated Abarth model.

The new model was made using technology from the 500 Abarth model and it features a sporty kit, a revised interior and much more powerful version of the engine than we had on the standard models. There are also some fancy additions which are going to link this model and its Abarth heritage to the 124 Rally limited edition model.

Since Mazda announced that they are not planning to make a high-powered version of their Miata model and for whatever reason they have decided not to do that, the 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth can be quite an important model for the segment. The vehicle is going to come out in Europe first and will grace the showrooms there, while we are still waiting for the US release date and the North American confirmation. Till then read the review and the confirmed data.

The 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth has an exterior styling which is actually based on the base roadster car and only expands by building it up and adding some expanded exterior additions. The front end has a honeycomb mesh grille which is similar to the one seen in the original model but adds air vents with black plastic surrounds. There are also a revised lower grille added that has integrated foglamps and uses a sportier apron with a red insert. The hood is matte black and has a Abarth’s racing anti-glare kit but in this addition the Fiat logo is replaced by a Scorpion badge.

The side of the car has some black-painted skirts. The model also uses 17-inch, multi-spoke, lightweight wheels  which have red calipers and there are also some Scorpion badges placed on the front fenders of the car. The side profile of the car also enables us to notice that the car sits lower than usually which is owed to the revised suspension system. The back also gains a new sportier piece with vents toward the rear wheels. It combines a more aggressive diffuser with a  quad-exhaust layout and just like the hood the trunk lid is also painted matte black as well. This is actually a nod to the original 124 Spider vehicle.

The back end of the car has more changes which are incorporated in order to match the model’s drop top. This makes the deck lid significantly shorter than the one used before which manages to accommodate the door and storage space for the car. The cargo bay will be cut down unfortunately, but that was expected to happen when cutting down to a cabrio. Outside of the declid area, the rear end is mostly the same and does not suffer any other changes. the rear fascia has the same corner vents and the  grey-colored rear diffuser which accents the chrome exhausts.

Generally speaking, the designers wanted to keep the convertible as sporty as its coupe version, and they did a stellar job with it. They have also added an optional “Night” package option, which brings all sorts of added features.

2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 Concept

There have been a lot of rumors already about a 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 version appearing and the news about a potential release date are finally here. The Dodge Dart sedan version was unveiled at the Detroit Auto show in 2012 and even then the SRT4 version was announced but never executed. There have been a lot of speculations about the model appearing and people were more than hyped on seeing the car be produced and developed as soon as possible. But it passed all this time till now as we were able to receive the new SRT4 model again.

2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 side

As time passed, people were less and less hopeful of actually seeing the model appear in the limelight. The vehicle had so much production problems that the idea was almost stint at one time. The year of 2005 was when we finally got something to hold on and hope of seeing the successor of the Neon SRR-4 model back in the market and finally appear. The biggest problem was making the right choice for the powertrain of the model. This was one piece of news that appeared at the Chicago Auto Show in 2014 when the design was almost pulled due to an inadequate engine. Luckily they managed to pull themselves back together and have found a way to match the appropriate powertrain for the car.

The news about the release date of the car has been made available by the Fiat Chrysler group. The announcement came recently and was unveiled that a five year production plan was taken into effect and that actually we are going to manage to receive the car sooner than people were hoping for. Actually it was just at around the time when people started giving up on ever seeing the model appear at all.

This is the review which is going to bring you a bit closer to the Dodge Dart SRT4 2017 version.

2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 Exterior

The 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 is a sportier version of the sedan model that we have gotten before. It actually sports a lot of visual upgrades that make in an overall handsome car which also shows that it means business and does not leave anything to chances. The changes that have been made for this sporty version are the added pair of bumpers, both front and back, which actually make the aggressiveness of the car at its peak.

There are also various other additions that make the car look sporty as it gets the large apron intake, a rear diffuser which is monumental for the back, and also a hood scoop. This is going to combine more than great with the changes that are going to happen under the skin of the car as they include added and improved suspension and also the ability to carry more driving modes.

The parts that are still standard for the car are actually the ones that we see on the base version of the car which are going to be standard on the SRT4 as well. This means that the standard bi-function halogen headlamps are kept and they are followed by the LED features that have been added also that go into the turnlights. The  body-colored “crosshair” grille and surrounds are standard here as well and we do get to see a little bit of chrome but not as much so as not teh avert attention from the The model uses the 17-inch wheels as standard but there are going to be other options available as well.

Interior Changes

The inside of the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 gets the same treatment as the exterior. It actually utilizes the basis setup that we had before and gives it an SRT remake. The base version does not change that much compared to the previous version and the only difference is mainly based on the trim elves that the model possesses. The car is going to utilize the base version and expand it by adding new and different features to make it better.

The inside of the 2017 SRT4 is mainly going to be updated with racy features which are added in order to give the carry appearance of the car. This is all due to the bucket seats which bolster your back while you drive at faster speeds. Also there are adjustable and help you mange the driving of this model. There are another SRT features added but the equipment still needs to be announced which is going to appear come release date.

Engine Specs

The 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 is going to get an special kind of engine which is going to update its performance in a large way. The issue about the engine has been resolved magnificently as they finally decided to go with the powertrain that the Caliber SRT4 utilizes. The engine that powers the car is the  2.4-liter Tigershark engine which is going to make an output of 260 horsepower, at least. The final specs are still not official and are going to be provided officially once the car is released but we do know that it is going to come with a all-wheel-drive configuration.

We expect to see the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 model by the middle of next year. There are still some nicks that need to be worked out and there is a lot to tune still so the model makes it for next year finally but for now no official price rats have been released. With the base version making it at a base MSRP of $17,995, we certainly hope to see an extended and added SRT package here.

2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 Concept

The 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 version is back. This year we are going to be treated to another model which is going to have more power and bring us a different kind of a setup compared to the base version. This model has been characterized by enabling higher towing capabilities, an expanded payload and more power. With vertical door handles and a rectangular grille we had a model which managed to do one over on the competition and give us an option with a different kind of bodywork and interior presentation.

But the 2017 version is going to change all of that as it brings us a brother cab section while also using different kind of sheetmetal. The shape is different and changes the style a little bit and it also uses some aluminum in order to shape up the things in a better way and cut some weight. This is something that all contemporary Ford cars have been doing in order to reshape their offer.

The all new frame is going to be constructed on a new 95 percent high-strength steel. The backbone is fully boxed and is 24 percent stiffer that the previous Ford King Ranch 250 frame. It is unusual to gloat about a truck like this and how light it is, but  actually the model drops 250 pounds and manages to make the fuel efficiency ratings much better. Keep reading the review so you can find out the newest specs and release date news.

2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 Exterior

The 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 version is going to sport a new kind of an exterior design. It is going to offer us a new type of grille to the front and will distinguish it from the base version. But this is not the only thing that makes a difference here. The model is blush and also has different headlights, but is still manages to keep true to its roots as it transfers a lot of the design characteristics from the old school 1998 version. The grille has a twin-bar and adds vertical side vents which are placed inside the headlights. The front bumper is still available with the closed-loop tow hooks while the windows have the downward slope kept as well.

The cabin is different from before as they have made it to cut the costs and be more functional and production friendly this time. The side vents that have been added to the cabin actually help distinguish between the trims as well and give us the chassis rating as well. The model also gets a completely new lighting package, with Quad-beam LED headlights as class executive ones. There are the LED side spotlights also mounted in the side mirrors as well and the cargo box is also lit up by some LED additions. The rear end of the car has been changed as well and the taillights also have the accent lines seen in the tailgate.

Interior Specs

The interior of the  2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 has a very familiar environment and still manages to keep a great surrounding and give us an entirely satisfying interior. Actually it is more or less the same as the F-150 model, which helps the manufacturers save time and money during development. But this helps the King Ranch 250 model a lot particularly as it has low-sheen and keeps the glare to a minimum.  The positioning of the switches is ergonomic and it has a logical setup to it. This includes the TFT display screens, SYNC technology and all the buttons and knobs of the dash.

But there are also some difference that separate the F-150 and the King Ranch 250’s interior from each other. First of all, there is a second glove box which is finished in an aluminum trim. There are some optional auxiliary switches offered as well but have been relocated to the overhead compartment now. The trailer brake controller is moved a few inches forward as well and this completes the changes made to the interior of the car.

Engine Performance

The powertrain of the 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 is a familiar choice. The truck is going to continue on using the 6.2-liter gasoline V-8  engine as its base choice and also offer the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 one as well. There is another option of choosing the most powerful engine on display which is the 6.8-liter gasoline V-10 one. All three of the engines can be combined with an automatic transmission. Unfortunately, the horsepower specs have not been disclosed as of yet and there are perhaps going to be some changes there, particularly for the higher. So keep an eye out of some potential updates that might appear soon.

2017 Honda Pilot Exterior Design

The 2017 Honda Pilot brings us a dramatic shift in design for its exterior. The boxy and dull style that the model had for longer than a decade is out and in with the new attractive style which fits in more with the new lineup of Honda SUVs and crossover vehicles. The latest Honda CR-V is actually to blame as it was a direct inspiration for the newest model making way for a more muscular, sleeker and sportier version of the car with more premium aspects.

The redesigned front end of the car features a lot of the CR-V model as it sports the same headlights and the same kind of a grille for the front. There are LED accents fitted here as well while the grille consists of  three horizontal chrome slats, while the upper blade extends into the headlamps. This is where the similarities with the CR-V end as everything from the turn signals and side inlets to the center-mounted air dam is similar with other Honda products.

The rear end of the Pilot does not look anything like its preceding vehicle. The model was built from scratch in its rear end as it is completely noticeable in what direction they decided to take it. The rear is also very clean and fresh looking and with some new and revised sporty taillights and a more cleaner and simpler apron design.

2017 Honda Pilot Interior Specs

The interior of the 2017 Honda Pilot has been completely overhauled and has many elements which it also borrows from the CR-V version. The plastic is much more modern and a lot less cheaper looking and adds more hard plastic details. The model is getting a lot closer to the premium segment compared to other ones. The digital instrument cluster is going to replace the former one while the entire center stack has been reworked into a more user-friendly one.

The Honda Pilot does look much more premium now but in fact there are not many premium elements that come as standard, with the only exception being the soft-touch materials and LED map lighting. The upper trim levels acutely have a great option where they can replace the second row of seats with two captain’s chairs for enhanced comfort.

One of the technical upgrades is the 8-inch touchscreen powered by an Android-based operating system. there is also the new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation with improved graphics and capabilities, and a 9-inch rear entertainment system with DVD and Blu-Ray which are all optional by the way.

2018 Bentley Continental GT New Design

The 2018 Bentley Continental GT has been finally announced. This is a model that has been greatly anticipated and wished for by many fans and people who would like to see something more from this brand. The fact is that this is a model that has been released in 2003 and was a huge hit for Bentley and Volkswagen AG. But the problems started occurring afterwards when the popularity of the car started going down gradually and it was mainly because the car has remained mostly the same and has not been updated at all.

We agree that there was this one facelift that was made and thanks to it the model has received a new V-8 engine. But this was still back in 2011 and since then there have not been a lot of other changes. It appears that coming out of the recession a price model like the Continental was not a priority but now when things are looking better it is high time to give something more to the model that we all want to see more from.

The all new luxury car is going to get its third generation design in 2018 as it is still a bit early to release it next year as the last Bentley Continental GT model has received its latest update. As there have not been a lot of innovative additions for that model as well the 2018 version is bound to bring us something very much desirable. The popularity of Bentley models is starting to rise and we may assume that the Continental is going to benefit form the Bentayga SUV release which is also coming. This is going to spur such additions like GT Speed, Convertible and Flying Spur sedan options appearing, but for now this news has not been confirmed.

The news about the Bentley Continental GT 2018 have been unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show and this review will help you learn more about the car and find out when the predicated release date might be.

2018 Bentley Continental GT Exterior

What the designers of 2018 Bentley Continental GT are preparing to do is amazing. Although, the model is still far away from appearing as a prediction version, the models and renderings show that we are in for a great design. The model is going to take after the  EXP 10 Speed 6 design which has been announced as the future direction of luxury and performance. This is a great way to update their car particularly as it has been in a hiatus from receiving anything significant in recent years.

This is actually going to be an evolution of the current Continental GT that we have and a continuation of it but in a lot better direction. It is perhaps a toned down version but something that we see as a far better luxurious option than the one we have now. There are some small changes made to the taillights area and the overall rear fascia which gives the Bentley Continental GT 2018 a very handsome behind.

Interior

The interesting thing about the 2018 Bentley Continental GT interior is how will it play out in the end compared to the EXP 10 Speed 6 model. There are a lot of things that are not going to make it on the inside and in fact there is a whole bunch of them that we do want to see in the car and think that it deserves its spot. If we compared the current Continental GT with the the EXP 10 Speed 6, we see that the later is far more stylish and far more advanced than the current Continental GT version. They both feature a similar dual-brow instrument panel design and quilted leather seats and door panels, but all of this is better done in the EXP 10 Speed 6 model.

What we actually appearance the most about the inside of the new 2018 Continental GT is the added Tesla Model-S like design of the central display screen. With this, there is the full digital gauge cluster added as well, a sportier three-spoke steering wheel and  two-tier element on the dash which actually gives more depth to the car as far as eye-catching details are concerned.

Engine Specs of 2018 Bentley Continental GT

Whatever the case may be, the biggest news surrounding the latest release that is the 2018 Bentley Continental GT is still connected with the engine choice. There have been some reports that say that the model is going to use a Porsche MSB platform which is currently used by Porsche Panamera. For now ht model is still going to continue using 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8, but there are some indications or at least a possibility of a 6.0-liter, W-12 engine being used as well, but not still confirmed. Sharing the platform as well as the technology might also suggest that the model might also come with  plug-in hybrid version, although this might only be limited and offered for the Flying Spur models.

2018 Bentley Continental GT Release date and price

The newest 2018 Bentley Continental GT is going to be released in a couple of years even with the concept at hand. The best we can hope is to get a model which is going to appear by the end of next year. The price of the current Continental is $193,500, so a price of around $200,000 but surely higher is going to be offered for the 2018 version.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Review

The new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe might lack the attention that other three-row crossovers command, but it comes with an intricate balance between style, comfort, and power that very few can match. Also, the fact that it offers a competitive price tag might sway your decision in its favor. Its release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.

Highlights for 2017 include an easy-to-use technology interface, a strong V6 engine, a classy interior design, a lengthy warranty, and a generous list of standard features. The Santa Fe might not be the newest or the biggest three-row crossover, but is worth checking out. In fact, it can be an obvious choice for anyone looking for a crossover SUV with three rows of seating.

It lacks the name recognition that some of its rivals ride upon, but that doesn’t deter its determination to be a top choice in the segment. Solid reasons have been provided by Hyundai on why the Santa Fe should be a top pick. Some of these include a generous head- and legroom, a seven-passenger seating capacity, and an ambient cabin. The third-row bench, however, isn’t suitable for adults and should only be left for elementary school going children.

The cabin offers impressively rich materials that offer the Santa Fe’s interior an attractive and clean design. The controls are simple, well-laid out and driver-centric. You also won’t have to worry about operating the touchscreen interface even if you find your phone’s apps to be a bewilderment.

Under the hood, the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is mostly unchanged and only the suspension system gets some handling and steering improvements. The V6 engine offered is hush and potent, but disappoints big time when it comes to acceleration. On the upside though, you will hardly find another vehicle that offers the kind of ride composure, refinement, and steering precision that the Santa Fe offers.

This is one vehicle that offers an easy-to-drive demeanor devoid of major faults that other three-row crossover SUVs are largely known for. Of course, exploration of options should be among your greatest strengths whenever you want to purchase a new vehicle, and it is our duty to ensure you get the right pick by offering its alternatives.

That said, alternatives you should consider before making your decision include the “A” rated 2017 Toyota Highlander – a perennial leader in this segment, and the redesigned 2017 Honda Pilot. Others include the 2017 Ford Flex, and the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse.
