2021 Porsche Cayman review

Capable and stylish, the new Porsche Cayman for 2021 is undoubtedly one of the most desired sports cars available on the market today. Some reasons behind that include the extensive personalization options, slick-shifting transmission, exceptional handling, rewarding and fuel-efficient engines, and a beautifully crafted cabin. Its release date should be expected in the coming weeks if not sooner.

Supposing you are a reasonable person looking forward to owning a sports car for yourself.  You are mostly looking for a car that delivers an amazing driving experience and which does not necessarily give you the biggest skid pad g-forces, bragging rights for the most power, or top slot at the valet line, but still suitable for everyday use. If that’s you, the new and updated Porsche Cayman for 2021 could be very well be the sports car you’ve aching to have.

The vehicle comes with an unparalleled braking and steering feel precision. The engine layout available, particularly the mid-engine gives it a superior handling balance that even the 911 cant rival. Additionally, its dimensions make it feel wonderfully nimble and its size ideal for a sports car. Practically, Porsche still holds the title when it comes to robust engines.

Still, the new 2021 Porsche Cayman comes with its own share of disappointments such as a wimpy base stereo that doesn’t even feature a USB port, a variety of options that can cost a whole lot of money, and insufficient storage space. But do you really care? Well, that will depend on your priorities.

The only pertinent question remaining at this juncture is which Cayman you’ll be able to afford from the available lineup, as even the base vehicle comes with a pricey tag that can dissuade many from purchasing one. In case you are running on a tight budget, other alternatives worth considering include Chevrolet Corvette 2021, 2021 BMW M235i, and 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.

The 2021 Porsche Cayman curb weight stands at 2888 pounds.

New 2021 Ford Expedition Release Date, Review and Specs

2021 Ford Expedition review

For 2021, expect the invigorated Ford Expedition to come with several highlights including interior flexibility, spacious third row seat, easy-to-fold rear seats, and an agile and fuel efficient engine. Its release date should be expected before this fall.

Most of the time, buyers only require a vehicle that is capable of just towing a trailer or hauling people around. This is what the Expedition does best. The vehicle comes with copious amounts of interior space to accommodate up to eight people within three rows of seats. For its size, Ford also equipped the vehicle with a robust engine able to provide 365 hp from a turbocharged V6. Other add-ons include loads of seating flexibility and an adjustable suspension tuning that have nicely been combined to offer better handling and convenience.

2021 Ford Expedition side view

The vehicle is popular for its ability to handle just about anything. When properly equipped, expect the vehicle to have a maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds. Additionally, the vehicle achieves a cargo space of about 108 cubic feet when the rear seats have been folded away.

Also for 2021, the vehicle now comes with more entertainment features in comparison to the model it is replacing. Ford has brought in the new Sync 3 infotainment system to replacing the aging and outdated MyFord Touch system.

On the flipside, though, the vehicle isn’t that convenient when maneuvering in tight spaces due to its massive size. Our recommendation is to get a fuel efficient and easier to handle vehicle that a big SUV like the Expedition. Other alternatives to consider include Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe for 2021.

2021 Lincoln Navigator review

With its plush ride, affordable price tag, a spacious third-row seat, and an updated touchscreen control interface, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is a solid choice for a traditional luxury SUV. However, there are other upscale crossovers in the segment that are easier to drive on a daily basis. Keep reading the review for up-to-date news on 2021 Navigator’s exterior and interior, release date, and price.

Given the sheer number of high-end crossovers in the present market on the market, the small portion occupied by the Navigator doesn’t come as a surprise. But if traditional American style, ability to tow just about anything, three-rows of seating and lots of interior room are your thing, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is definitely the SUV for you.

There are lots of aesthetic changes inside and outside of the vehicle, and this might help propel the vehicle back to the top. Interior wise, buyers will find its seats very comfortable even for long trips. And with a huge collection of upscale technologies inside, the driving experience simply can’t get any better. For instance, the BlackBerry-powered Sync 3 touchscreen interface comes with improved response times and a simplified menu bar.

2021 Lincoln Navigator exterior

With a maximum towing capacity rated at over 9,000 pounds, the Navigator is undoubtedly among the best in terms of towing and hauling tasks. The only downside to owing the Navigator would be its sheer size which might prove detrimental in certain spaces. Also, its base offers uninspiring interior materials.

Two main competitors that buyers should consider before closing the deal on the Navigator include the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, and the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. The former offers of the best interior designs available and an available diesel engine. The Caddy, on the other hand, offers upscale safety features, and lots of standard features, but comes short on cargo volume and backseat space.

With its low pricing and appealing features, and talks of a lightweight body brought about by the extensive use of aluminum metal, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is nevertheless a solid choice.

Trims Available – Lincoln Navigator

Just like before, the new 2021 Lincoln Navigator is available in only two iterations: standard-wheelbase and the extended-wheelbase Navigator.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe review

Despite the new Hyundai Santa Fe lacking the same attention as some other three-row crossover SUVs, it still manages to come with a unique sense of style and comfort. Its affordable price tag might also be the reason it’ll emerge a favorite in its segment. Expect its release date during the middle of this year.

Some of the defining attributes of the new 2021 Santa Fe include an easy-to-use technology interface, a generous list of standard features, an agile V6 engine, a classy cabin, and a lengthy warranty.

The new vehicle is almost an obvious choice for people shopping for a three-row crossover. Though it might lack a name recognition, the new Santa Fe may tip your decision in its favor through various features and technologies it comes with.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe exterior

Once you get inside the vehicle, there are lots of things to covet on. First is the cabin space, the vehicle offers more interior space than any other seven-passenger crossover in its segment. The first two rows offer an excellent space for both leg-and headroom. As for the third row, you might find it necessary to keep the young adults there as the space isn’t that favorable for adults which is almost the case for every large crossover irrespective of the nameplate.

That aside, the cabin of the 2021 Santa Fe offers an appealing ambience, simple control layout, and lots of convenience features for your money. You’ll find the touchscreen interface easy-to-use even if you are still in that generation that finds apps a bewilderment.

Another interesting thing about the vehicle is the standard V6 powerplant. This serene, potent V6 engine provides a laudable acceleration to 60 mph while still keeping those EPA fuel economy ratings on check. However, you might find its rivals offer more power and specs, refinement, and more composure than the Santa Fe.

Before making up your mind, you’ll probably want to explore what the segment offers. Some of the crossovers that will undoubtedly give the Santa Fe a run for its money include the 2021 Toyota Highlander, 2021 Honda Pilot, 2021 Chevy Traverse, 2021 Kia Sorento, and 2021 Ford Flex.

Available Trims – Hyundai Santa Fe

2021 Chevrolet Malibu review

The new 2021 Chevrolet Malibu challenges the segment’s best with its impressive feature set that includes better fuel economy, ample interior space, and tons of features for the money. Furthermore, it now features upgraded interior materials and technologies. On the technology front, expect now a better responding infotainment system. Rumors of its release date, price, and redesign changes have been covered below. So keep reading.

2021 Chevrolet Malibu Release Date & Price

Chevy is yet to make the details of the Malibu’s price and release date known as of this writing, this hasn’t however stopped some quarters within the industry from speculating the probabilities. That said, the price should of the Malibu Sedan should be expected around an MSRP of $21,000 and that of the Malibu Hybrid from around $27,000.

2021 Chevrolet Malibu rear view

Review

The previous generation of the Malibu want particularly inspiring in comparison to a number of alternatives available on the segment at the time. It failed to stand out on any one area and therefore didn’t have the competitive edge that is more often than not a prerequisite in such a competitive market. Hopefully for 2021, the Chevrolet Malibu redesign seems to have ticked all the right boxes.

Engineers of the Malibu appear to have went back to the drawing board and worked on all-new vehicle. It is still a Malibu to the core, but you’ll notice its exterior design is striking and elegant and one might mistake it for an Audi A7. The 2021 Chevrolet Malibu interior has also gained some exclusivity at least for its class. It comes with a sensible amount of standard features. The material quality has been upgraded as well.

Beneath the hood, the new Malibu comes with two engines: a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine rated at 160-horsepower and 184 lbs. ft. of torque equipped under the skin of the L, LS, and 1LT models. The other option is a 2.0L turbocharged rated at 250 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque and comes equipped in the 2LT and Premier trim models.

But even with such seemingly impressive specifications, we wouldn’t go that far to say the Malibu will ultimately be the new family sedan favorite. This year has seen a number of vehicles undergo redesigns as well and buyers will have a number of vehicles to choose from. Some of the alternatives available include the Mazda 6, Hyundai Sonata, and the Honda Accord.

2021 Porsche Panamera review

2021 Porsche Panamera News – We got the Porsche Panamera in 2010 and since that we have only got a couple of modifications but not the entire new model. Not until this year. Yes, we will have the all new Porsche Panamera, finally revealed at the special event in Berlin this November.

This new model is coming with the modified shoulder line, trademark long hood and some big alloy wheels. The body itself is going to be 35mm longer, 5mm taller, 5mm wider and it is going to have a 30mm longer wheelbase.

Porsche Panamera 2021 Exterior

Like in the most models of new cars, we get some slight differences to the previous model, like new intakes and a better looking grille which combined, give this model a new more menacing look while the back goes with new LED taillights which go across the tail, interrupted only with the sign of Porsche giving everyone a clear message who is in front, while the rear is deploying automatically to complete the feeling of eating the dust behind this beast.

Porsche Panamera 2021 Interior

It seems like everyone is running fast into the future. Touch screen phones, touch screen doors, touch screen… screens, touch screen cookers, touch screen mp4 players and now touch screen dashboards. Next winter will be fun for those lucky ones, when they try to turn on the heating with gloves on… Jokes to the side, the dashboard without all those buttons looks like out of this world. And the combination of the tachometer, analogue gauge and the 12.3″ touch screen with satellite navigation and voice control system.

Porsche Panamera 2021 Engine Specs

  • Panamera 4S – 2.9 litre twin turbo V6 – 0-60/4.2sec
  • Panamera 4S – Diesel V8 diesel motor – 0-60/4.3sec
  • Panamera Turbo – 4.0 litre V8 Turbo – 0-60/3.8sec

The toughest of gasoline engines will be a 4.0 litre V8 Turbo model with 542HP. It will go from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 190mph and a fuel consumption of 30MPG or 9.5 litres per 100km.

4S model is powered with 2.9 litre twin turbo V6. This one will from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds with Sport Chrono pack and fuel consumption of 34.5MPG or 8.2 litres per 100km.

The “makers” say that 4S Diesel is going to be, or it is, the fastest Diesel car in the world. It develops 416bhp and a really admirable 850Nm of torque. It runs from 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds and tops at 177mph with fuel consumption of 41.5MPG or 6.8 litres per 100km.

And on the top of all, we are getting the Eco friendly Porsche Panamera. Can you imagine? The plug-in version of Porsche! You will not have to imagine it anymore. It will, probable, be presented at the Paris motor show, and it will most certainly build up the price up to 100.000 pounds.

2021 Porsche Panamera engine

E-Hybrids are going to have a combination of V6 petrol engine and an electric motor which combined give the range of 22 miles and a 410bhp. That will be the “entry” hybrid, and we will get the G2 plug-in too, which will be the “sport” version of Porsche Panamera.

Some will say a lot of bad things about this car due to its size. But in the end, you buy these cars, not because of its usefulness, gadgets, elegance or comfort but because you can and you love sport cars. You like the power and speed… or to be seen. Nevertheless, this car will also come in a coupe version or estate version, even larger than the sport version. It will have a recognizable sharp design, with five seats, higher usability etc. The most important thing for this version is that it’s going to be shipped to the North America and China, even though the estate versions are known to be the “Europe thing”.

2021 Bugatti Chiron – Release Date, News and Rumors

0
2021 Bugatti Chiron review

There is no doubt that the Bugatti Chiron has been the pace-setter in terms of raw speed and sheer power. More than a decade ago, Ferdinand Piech gave a small brief to then Veyron engineers: the new Bugatti Chiron, he said, had to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, had to have more than 1,000 horsepower, had to achieve a 250 mph, and most importantly, had to be able to offer a comfortable ride to Mrs. Piech on her way to see the Chinese Opera.

Fast-forward to 2021 and the same resounding voice is much clearer and louder than ever before only this time the Veyron replacement is here with us. Ladies and gentlemen here is the new 2021 Bugatti Chiron. Its release date should be expected before this fall as a 2021 year model.

For now, Bugatti has decided to keep the real values under wraps for whatever reasons. What is however known is that the new 2021 Bugatti Chiron 0-60 mph will take just 2.5 seconds and will achieve a top speed of about 236 mph in normal mode. According to sources at Bugatti, the new model has a lowered ride height – expected to reduce downforce and therefore enable it go faster. In fact, 261 mph is the computer-limited-time top speed.

2021 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport exterior

You heard that right, 261 mph at least according to computer simulations. According to Wolfgang Durheimer, the 250 mph mark is on course to be crossed, however, it presents a huge challenge as crossing that speed would out a lot of stress on the vehicle’s components and therefore would be dangerous even for the most professional drivers.

He further argues that the new 2021 Bugatti Chiron will have an easy time breaking the 268 mph and 270.49 mph records set by the Veyron Super Sport and the John Hennessey’s Venom GT respectively.

Although much of the construction architecture used by the Bugatti Chiron 2021 is that of the Veyron, engineers working on the new model say the new model is all-new. This is despite the Chiron sporting the 8.0L W12 engine paired to the seven-speed DCT. Relative to the Veyron, Bugatti says the new model is slightly longer, slightly wider, and seats slightly lower. The curb weight however remains the same.

Performance wise, the new 2021 Bugatti Chiron gets a power output sated at a breath-chocking 1,500 horsepower @6,700 rpm, and about 1,165 pounds-feet of torque @6,700 rpm. This represents a 25% increase in both power and torque over the Veyron. Why more power while it uses the same Veyron Super Sport engine, you ask. Auto engineering 101: the amount of air supplied to the engine compartment has been increased as well. It’s that simple!

For starters, the design of the 2021 Bugatti Chiron is a seamless combination of high levels of “beauty” and a “beastly” personality. It is a quintessential ultimate sports car that offers a stylistically demanding design, and an ultra-modern physique.

The Bugatti Chiron interior, just like those of its predecessors before it, is a masterpiece. It is a standout from any other hypercar around thanks to the striking balance between luxury and sportiness. Plastics are a cursed lot and not even an inch is available on its interior. The surfaces are plastered with either fine leather, aluminum, of carbon fiber. The result is a premium, modern vehicle, bespoke in every touch.

Exterior wise, if the 2021 Bugatti Chiron Spy photos are anything to go by, the outside design is simply an evolution of the Veyron design regardless of whichever way Bugatti tries to put it. At first blush, you might confuse it for its predecessor as the redesigns are subtle and you might need to look long and hard to notice any dissimilarities.

Review

First things first, while the introduction above sounds awfully impressive, we have several gripes about the vehicle under review. For one, relative to similarly priced rivals, the gasoline engine sounds a bit less efficient. Again, the V6 engine may get tiresome in everyday driving experiences due to its boisterous exhaust, and lastly, the ride quality may feel a bit firm over broken pavement. Well, beyond the negative idiosyncrasies, Jaguar seems to have ticked most of the right buttons.

Quite so often, beauty and practicality seem to be mutually exclusive but with the F-Pace, Jaguar has proved the two can be worked out just as well. It is fun to drive, engaging, and offers a striking beauty that will culminate in many social media posts involving selfies. And to add to this immaculate features, Jaguar also went into great lengths to add an impressive ground clearance. The wheelbase, too, was boosted. The result of this is better off-roading experience, improved cargo and passenger space.

Driving dynamics were not left out of the equation. The same verve that drives Jaguar’s sedans and sport car’s was also roped in. Boasting of the same mechanical underpinnings that highlight both the XE/XF models and a bit of inspiration from the F-Type, the result is smooth and comfortable driving manners that are best-in-class. Furthermore, worthy of praise is its RWD driving architecture, impeccably composed suspension system, and an ultra-rigid structure. For some, however, the ride quality may be a bit firm.

Motivation beneath its hood is offered by a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine rated at 340 horsepower. It is available for all trims with the exception of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace Firs Edition and S models. Jaguar says, this output is enough to fire up the F-Pace from 0-60 mph to 5.4 seconds. Fuel economy numbers stand at 20 mpg in combined city/highway cruising. Those looking for more power can opt for the F-Pace 20d AWD model that gets a turbo-diesel four-cylinder 2.0L engine good for 180 horsepower and 318 pounds-feet of torque. Similar to the BMW X3, it takes 8.2 seconds for a 0-60 mph run. Fuel economy ratings for the diesel-powered mill haven’t been released but jaguar estimates it to be in the 20+ mpg region.

2021 Dodge Durango review

The new 2021 Dodge Durango returns unchanged over the existing model save for the minor changes adorned on its exterior and interior facets, on the cargo volume, and on the dimensions. The performance, fuel economy ratings, and mechanical underpinnings have zilch changes. Its release date and pricing info are also out. Read on to get the news.

Even while the segment is awash with so many all-rounded rivals, the Dodge Durango has always managed to hold its own quite well by building on the brand’s pillars of performance, innovation, and style. For 2021, while Dodge hasn’t offered the Durango a substantial refresh, it is imperative to note that it is still competitive in most respects. It still combines impressive towing capacity, large cargo volume, and muscular lines, with a comfortable three-row seating and impressive driving enjoyment.

In order to further up its desirability level, Dodge has offered the new model better design, latest safety and driver-assisting technologies, better interior material quality, and an enhanced cargo volume in order to further improve the Durango’s comfort, convenience, and overall sophistication. With the new changes added to the spec sheet, there’s no doubt the new 2021 Dodge will be an appealing family vehicle. This is especially true for those looking for real off-roading capabilities, superior infotainment system, and spacious third-row seats.

While there’s nothing flashy about the Durango especially the most basic version, moving up the trim ladder allows buyers to have multiple options such as the appearance packages that go a long way in making it stand out from rivals such as the Toyota Highlander, and the Honda Pilot. Matters beneath the hood aren’t expected to change, although rumors are rife that there’re some bits of mechanical changes that don’t necessarily improve the horsepower and torque. In fact, the new model returns with the same 3.6L V6 gasoline engine rated at 260 pounds of torque, details about the horsepower are withheld at the moment.

And yet, the Durango isn’t the only vehicle in the segment that offers such alluring features and capability. The reason that it hasn’t made the cut in the market yet relative to fresher competitors like the Honda Pilot or the Mazda CX-9, I might add, is its humongous weight that puts fuel economy, maneuverability, and handing at a disadvantage.

So, if I were a shopper looking for an all-rounded truck-based SUV, I’d go first for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe or the recently updated 2021 Ford Expedition. But for people looking for even better desirable, distinctive mix of personality and practicality, the 2016 Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and the Mazda CX-9 should definitely be the go-to vehicles.

2021 Dodge Durango Release Date & Price

The following is the pricing info as provided by Dodge: Durango Citadel – $43,995, Durango GT – $40,095, Durango SXT – $32,595, Durango R/T – $42,095, and Durango Anodized – $42,490. Please note that the pricing is also dependent on the engine option beneath the hood. Only the Durango Citadel and Durango Anodized Platinum SUV are available with an option of either a 3.6L V6 or a 5.7L V8 engine.

Its release date has been set for the second quarter of 2021. Potential buyers can however start placing orders as soon as now.

As previously mentioned, the new model isn’t expected to change much. However given the expectation Dodge’s customers have, the body of the new model should certainly be muscular and confident. According to rumors, the Durango Rallye and the Durango R/T are expected to come with dark-tinted body-color sill moldings, grille, wheel flares, and, in general, front and rear fascias just like the 2014 and 2015 models.
