    Preview: 2020 Toyota Supra

      We like to thank Toyota Mexico for this early peek

    Toyota was hoping to keep the Supra under wraps until Monday when it makes its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show. However, the Japanese automaker's Mexico office had a different idea. Yesterday, Toyota Mexico tweeted out a video showing the Supra without any camouflage. The tweet, translated from Spanish reads,

    “Our new #Supra arrived in Japan!, and this is the story that #AkioToyoda tells us about its return.”

    The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before a number of people downloaded the video and post it to Facebook and YouTube - we have the video at the bottom of this story.

    The production model looks very much like the concept we saw a few years back with flowing curves, short roofline, and a long front-end. We're still not sold on the front with three vents and pointy nose.

    As we have reported previously, the Supra will be using two turbo engines from BMW; a 2.0L turbo-four (265 horsepower) and 3.0L twin-turbo inline-six (335 horsepower).

    We'll have more information, along with photos when the Supra debuts at 9:40 AM on Monday.

    They have teased and hyped this car for a year, when they price it all the people will run away, it won’t sell and it will be cancelled in 4 years unless they signed a contract with BMW to keep building cars they can’t sell.

    Long hood, short deck styling. 

    I like it.  Sort of...

    There is something amiss in the styling yet something that attracts me and makes me play that video over and over again because there are elements that I truly like about it, yet I do not know what I do not like about it and elements that I do not know why I like it!

    Strange as that is, I most definitely welcome it as I cannot stand looking at another CUV reveal. And because this new Supra now exists for us car guys, then us car guys have some little hope in surviving this  zombie CUV epidemic we are currently going through.  So yeah, this new Supra is my new Trans Am!!!

    You can clearly see the BMW DNA of the car and BMW version.

    According to the Road Show on CNET, pricing is now available on the Supra and I have to say it SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS. Who the hell pays $2,490 for the required upgraded stereo / nav system to just get apple play, No Android is available. Sorry Toyota but you guys really messed this one up. I agree with the write up that for a base car starting at $50k dollars, there are far better auto's out there that include all the expensive features listed in the story as upgrade options:

    https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2020-toyota-supra-pricing-detroit-auto-show/

     the base 3.0 model starting at $49,990 before options. The Premium version goes up to 53,990, and the Launch Edition will set you back a cool $55,250.

    🤔 Why does BMW always look so dated and kind reminds me of a Buick on the side door profile section. Weird.

    I don't see how that looks dated at all.

    And nothing like a Buick.

      The rumors that have been swirling around for the past year have been laid to rest this morning. General Motors announced that Hummer will be returning as GMC-branded electric pickup truck boasting 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph will take three seconds. Those hoping for details about battery capacity, charging, and price will need to keep waiting until May 20th when GMC will officially show off the truck. Before then, GMC will preview the truck in a thirty second ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
      “GMC builds premium and capable trucks and SUVs and the GMC HUMMER EV takes this to new heights. We are excited to debut our revolutionary zero-emissions truck during the biggest night in TV advertising," said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC in a statement.
      Production will take place at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant, with sales beginning next fall.

      GMC HUMMER EV Pairs Incredible Capability, Zero Emissions
      “Quiet Revolution” campaign telegraphs GMC’s future with its first all-electric truck DETROIT – GMC will introduce the GMC HUMMER EV, bringing bold design and remarkable capability to the electrified vehicle space, during this weekend’s big game, in an ad titled “Quiet Revolution.”
      The spot juxtaposes the staggering anticipated performance metrics of GMC’s first all-electric truck with the remarkable quietness inherent in the operation of an electric vehicle.
      The GMC HUMMER EV truck will showcase the GMC brand’s design and engineering potential, and will feature:
      1,000 horsepower 11,500 lb-ft of torque 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds “GMC builds premium and capable trucks and SUVs and the GMC HUMMER EV takes this to new heights,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “We are excited to debut our revolutionary zero-emissions truck during the biggest night in TV advertising.”
      The GMC HUMMER EV will be revealed on May 20, 2020 and built in Michigan at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
      The 30-second TV spot is scheduled to air during the second quarter of the big game. The spot highlights the anticipated performance of GMC’s all-electric super truck, which will generate remarkable metrics in terms of horsepower, torque and acceleration while providing incredible on- and off-road capability. All of this is combined with the vastly reduced noise and zero emissions inherent in the operation of an electric vehicle.
      As part of the digital and social media marketing push surrounding the big game ad, GMC will take over the YouTube homepage masthead on Friday, Jan. 31. Customers can follow the conversation at #GMCHummerEV.

      The Aston Martin DBX, the first SUV for the brand, will be debuting on November 20th in Beijing, China. However, some information and pictures have been released early. 
      The starting price of the DBX in the US will be $189,900.  A lot of money, but from the looks of the interior, it could be money well spent. The interior is draped in high quality leather, suede surfaces, and brushed metal trim.  AM says they spent 6-months just to determine the optimum seating position for 99th percentile male to the 5th percentile female.  This was done to make sure that all of the screens and even the hood are visible without restriction.  The center console is the floating bridge type that allows for storage underneath. 
      Order books for the  DBX open with the debut on the 20th of November.

      China is by far Buick's most important market. More than three quarters of all Buicks sold are sold in China.  To that end, it should be no surprise that China gets updated models before the U.S. and also get variants that never will see our shores. Even models that are dead in the US, like the Lacrosse and Verano, continue on selling well in China.
      The Buick Enclave is one example.  In the U.S. it is a full-size model, but in China it is downsized to a mid-size model approximately the size of the current GMC Acadia. Buick just debuted the new Enclave in China and while it is unlikely we'll see it over here, the U.S. model could get many of the same updates when it bows for 2021.
      Outside we see a revised front fascia with a new grill. The running lights have the familiar boomerang shape while the headlamps have moved lower into the bumper area.  A new grille insert is there with a wider horizontal slat that gives the Enclave more visual width.

      The inside is where the real story is at. Greatly updated, the infotainment system is seamlessly integrated into the dash and a new set of buttons takes the place of the Precision Control shifter. The console is the floating type with storage underneath. (Click image to enlarge)
      The Chinese Enclave is powered by GM's 2.0-liter turbocharged LSY engine making around 230 horsepower and coupled to a 9-speed automatic transmission. 
      What do you think of the Chinese Buick Enclave and would you like to see these updates in the U.S. version?  Let us know in the comments below.

    • While in general I do agree with you, however  if it wouldn't be for the government regulations we wouldn't have cars today with seat belts, air bags and emission control.    I think maybe government instead of giving incentives for individual EV purchases, should invest that money into making EV friendly infrastructure, same as they invest into other infrastructure projects. I think it will contribute much more to the increased use of EVs than individual discounts.   EVs will be the future eventually for a simple reason (even disregarding environmental impact) that they are much more efficient, they require substantially less maintenance, and they more future proof than ICE cars, as Tesla has shown.   We are still in the beginning of the transfer process but it is inevitable.
    • Dude, it's futile arguing with them...they will never change their minds.   Best to just agree to disagree and move on.    The US is full of anti-science people, arguing with them is futile.    
    • Made up problem? YOU ACCUSE ME OF NOT KNOWING WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT, YET HERE YOU ARE, WITHOUT ANY SCIENTIFIC PROOF...EIITHER, STATING THAT CARS DO NOT POLLUTE. Nah...that is just you having an uninformed opinion. An opinion NOT based on facts or truths. But piss poor judgement. In any case. THIS is why DISCOURSE is good.  TEACH me.  LETS DISCUSS. But nope. You are the one to be closed minded. Open yourself up to me. Well...YOU are the one that wants to CHANGE me.  With the ironic and moronic way of crying and whining WITHOUT discussing but WHINING and CRYING about it of how I wanna change you.  Well...CHANGE me.  TEACH me.   SHOW me how wrong I am. No! NOT by telling me others are continuing to do what they have always done.  (I GOT REBUTTALS FOR EVERY NONSENSICAL SHYT YOU ARE YOUR ILK SPEW.) But DISCUSS with me the HOW with TRUTH and NOT with SELFISH reasons.... This is the hypocrisy of YOUR kind and ILK. YOU and YOUR ILK  spew that line like a horny John on a hooker's face.   But I know why you dont wanna discuss things. You dont have a leg to stay on. Your first sentence... tells me all I need to know. My dad once told me to never argue and discuss things with ignorant people. Its best you argue with a wall... Ever hear THAT cliche Blu? But you are NOT ignorant.   Just selfish. PS: I aint tryna change you.  The thing is, YOU dont want ANYBODY else to change the way we do things on planet earth.  YOU want the status quo...and THAT in effect means YOU want to change the other billions of folk that want to change NOT to change.  
    • I just realized the left rear wheel is off this Mopar product.
    • Nah, I haven't taken it in.  Weird that it does not do it each and every first cold 2-3 shift, just a high percentage of the time.  I have the 3.6 8A.
