New York Auto Show: 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

Mar 26 2015 02:00 PM | New York Auto Show
Mercedes-Benz is saying 'good night sweet prince' to the ML nameplate that has been a part of its midsize SUV since it was first-introduced in the late-nineties. Taking its place will be the GLE name which is part of Mercedes' name-change to their SUV/Crossover lineup. So what better way to introduce a new name than with revised model. Next week at the 2015 New York Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz will just do that.

The standard GLE-Class takes some ideas from the GLE Coupe we saw in Detroit such as a new front end design with either a two-bar grille for standard models or a single-bar for the AMG model, along with a new bumper, headlights, and hood.

New York Auto Show: Toyota Hybrid-izes the RAV4

Mar 26 2015 12:05 PM | New York Auto Show
Another hybrid model is joining the Toyota family.

The automaker announced today that it would be revealing a hybrid version of the RAV4 at the 2015 New York Auto Show next week. No other information was provided except that it would be shown on April 2nd.

Our best guess to what the RAV4 Hybrid will be is something akin to the Camry Hybrid with the 2.5L Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, providing a total output of 200 horsepower.

Mar 26 2015 07:15 AM | New York Auto Show
Since Ford made the announcement of the Focus RS and that it would be arriving in the U.S., we've been hungry for more details. Well Ford has dropped a few more bits as it announced that the Focus RS will make its North American debut at the New York Auto Show next week.

There aren't really big differences between the North American-spec Focus RS to the Focus RS that will be sold in Europe. Power will come a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder producing at least 315 horsepower (expect more concrete performance numbers when we get closer to launch) and come paired with a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive combo. There will also be four different drive modes: Normal, Sport, Track, and Drift. As the name suggests, Drift will modify...

Mar 25 2015 12:35 PM | William Maley in New York Auto Show

To say Chevrolet's previous attempts at doing a hybrid model of the Malibu have been lackluster, is an understatement. The past two attempts really didn't see a big increase in fuel economy and were not big sellers. Well Chevrolet hopes to change that...
