    Kia Teases Soul Turbo For Winter 2016

      Kia pulls a fast one in a new Soul Ad

    The Kia Soul is one the popular models in their lineup. But even more popular are the Soul ads with hamsters (Kia would like you to call them Hamstars). Recently, Kia unveiled a new ad with the Hamstars and the Soul EV (with others to follow). But the automaker slipped something towards the end of the ad of a new powertrain option.


    In the closing frames, Kia has an overview of the Soul lineup with Gas, Electric, and Turbo. Turbo? Right next to it is 'Winter 2016'. Very sneaky Kia.


    Rumors of a turbocharged Soul have been flying around for a few years now, but this could be first real indication of it. What could be under the hood of the Soul Turbo? Car and Driver speculates it might be the turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder used in the Forte Koup and Forte5. The engine produces 201 horsepower.

    OK, cute commercial, but how can one really tell what is the gas, EV and turbo? I have looked over and over and see nothing that would indicate this to me other than rodents trying to be human driving a box on wheels?

    • Once they get in the ground they will grow very rapidly until the blight gets them. These two seeds are from different, naturally blight resistant trees. They’ll be planted near each other in the hopes that their seeds will also be blight resistant and if I’m still here in 10 years and the blight hasn’t gotten them, I can share the seeds with others.    This was once the most populous tree in North America, numbering in the hundreds of millions, and the blight wiped it out in a matter of three decades. Now it is rare to see one more than 10 years old in the wild and the ones that are out there are protected and studied.  I believe there’s less than two dozen wild ones in PA now.
    • Flavor is amazing over bland store bought veggies. Very cool, interesting tree, so slow growing then?
    • And it has the awful trendy gray/black window trim and garage doors...barf...generic crap.   A lot of the new construction around here looks like this, whether condos or McMansions in suburbia.   
    • This is what I also spotted yesterday.  For a while, I thought that most of America wasn't moving away from Craftsman style housing fast enough.  It lasted for at least 2 decades in areas they don't use the Mediterranean stucco look. Well, America did move on ... to this.  I don't know what it's called ... American white farmhouse? There isn't much variety in it at all.  And this is mostly what you see anymore. Can't we do better?
