  • BMW reveals 2016 X5 M and X6 M ahead of Los Angeles

    admin
    29 Oct 2014 | 6:08 pm
    BMW was known to be preparing the latest and greatest versions of the X5 M and X6 M for the 2016 model year and recently, the Munich automaker just revealed them in full ahead of their debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. As expected, the 2016 BMW X5 M and X6 M sport the BMW M5’s 4.4L TwinPower twin-turbocharged V8 good for 567hp, up from 555hp for the outgoing models. There’s also quite a bit more torque at 553 lb-ft of twist versus the last model’s 500lb-ft. Both get a new ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic with xDrive all-wheel drive as standard. And should one…

The new Lotus Exige S automatic is expected to go on sale in January with six-forward gears. And while the Exige S may be robbed of some of its driver involvement, the new Exige S automatic comes with paddle-shifters for those who want to shift manually without having to move their left leg. The cog swapper also has various settings such as Sport and Race mode for the more performance-oriented drives. And according to Lotus, the Exige S hits…

    The Truth About Cars

  • Editorial: By Royal Decree

    Derek Kreindler
    31 Oct 2014 | 10:26 am
    Buried in a Reuters article on Hyundai’s new Prius-fighter was talk of Hyundai’s new Aslan sedan. The Aslan is intended to take on the growing sales of imported sedans in South Korea, namely the VW Passat, BMW 3-Series and Audi A4. Based on a front-drive architecture, the Aslan seems to occupy a slot between the Sonata and the Grandeur (aka our Azera) – which made it all the more surprising when Reuters reported that “The automaker is also looking at introducing the Aslan in China, the United States and Middle Eastern countries.” A sort of large, sort of premium…

    (N.B. This review was penned by my grandmother, Yvette Lerner, posted under my account) When my husband, daughter (Derek’s Mum) and I left England in 1962, we left behind a beautiful MG Magnette. Upon arriving in Canada, my husband went out and bought the first car he could find with a V8 engine. We had left behind the damp flats, the rationing (which still went on when we got married in 1953) and the grey weather for a new life, and my husband felt that the transformation wasn’t complete unless we had a big, 8-cylinder American car to go with it. We wouldn’t drive anything…

    What happens when $2.99 for a gallon of regular fuels demand for new vehicles? The U.S. economy feels its VTEC kick in, of course. According to The Detroit News, the U.S. Commerce Department reported the economy grew 3.5 percent in Q3 2014, with 0.59 percentage points contributed by auto sales. Said sales also delivered an 0.55 percent boost in Q2 2014, helping the GDP climb to 4.6 percent. Spending is up, as well: 9.5 percent increase in automotive spending through September 30, resulting in a SAAR of $457.1 billion. Meanwhile, October’s sales are expected to rise 6.4 percent in…

    McLaren P1 GTR Test: A little More Than a Car The McLaren P1 has 903 horsepower, and apparently that is not enough. The new track-focused P1 GTR will have 986 horsepower, as well as being stripped down to the essentials. A criticism of today’s automotive industry is that as cars become more and more powerful, it becomes increasingly difficult to get the best performance out of the car; they are simply too fast for the every-day millionaire. McLaren, however, has addressed this criticism with what each lucky owner of a P1 GTR will receive (in addition to the car): the McLaren Driver Program.

    K.C. Colwell
    31 Oct 2014 | 9:10 am
    If anyone predicted Porsche would be one of the brands leading the charge on plug-in hybrids back when Chevrolet launched the Volt in 2010—just as Porsche was debuting its first-ever production hybrid with the Cayenne—that person should be dealing futures on Wall Street. By replacing that SUV with this 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid plug-in, Porsche now has three plug-ins, more than any other carmaker. Of course, one of those three is the 918 Spyder, which isn’t exactly mainstream production. But still. READ MORE ››

    The story at Chrysler these days is the supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine. Seriously, it’s a 707-hp engine you can buy in one of two relatively normal and inexpensive vehicles, the Dodge Charger and the Challenger. As exciting as that is, what really gets us excited is figuring out what Chrysler product the Hellcat will end up in next. We had lunch with Ram Trucks’ new CEO, Bob Hegbloom, and we had to ask: When will we see a Ram 1500 with the Hellcat engine? Hegbloom’s answer? “At this time, I would say no.” And would you believe it, that response didn’t…

    It’s not easy to see out of a Chevy Camaro. That’s just an inescapable consequence of forcing 1967 design cues onto modern, safety-compliant hardware shared with the Chevrolet SS and the late, lamented Pontiac G8. You’ll have to live with this poor visibility if you buy any Camaro. But opt for a Camaro SS equipped with the 1LE package, and you might not care. READ MORE ››
  • Hennessey’s Jaguar F-Type R Coupe Has 623 Seriously Pissed-Off Horsepower [Video]

    Jaguar’s gorgeous F-type R is already a cracking good sports car, one that’s factory-rated at 550 snarling horses from its supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. As is typical for Hennessey Performance, though, that wasn’t enough. They’ve turned the wick up with the HPE600 F-type R, to the tune of 623 horses at the crank. Watch and listen as this cat blasts through quarter-mile in less than 11.6 seconds. First, it’s sort of cool to see the car deploy its automatic spoiler, programmed to rise at 70 mph, in the drag strip’s burnout box. Then it rips to 60 in 3.5…

As the second last event of the year for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, the Barrie Speedway round is always exciting and there is always a lot of bumping and banging. There is usually some off track excitement following the race as well as tempers run hot. Occasionally, competitors who are eager to find someone to blame end up running off at the mouth, only to end up with egg on their face when they are proven wrong later.

In fact in the non-luxury segment, Nissan is the fastest growing auto brand in Canada. When it comes to their offerings, Nissan has always been one to take chances. From the all-electric LEAF, to the funky Juke and Cube, and on the other end of the spectrum, the absolutely bonkers GTR “Godzilla”, it’s easy to forget that Nissan…

    Back in the late 1990’s, auto manufacturers were scrambling to add more variations of the SUV theme “song” to their line-up. Gas prices were low and North Americans were in love with their sport utes. Dodge made quite an entry to the SUV marketplace with the Durango in 1998. Based on their new (at the time) Dakota pickup truck, the Durango offered up to seven passenger seating, the most cargo space in its class, and thanks to the body-on-frame construction, 3.5 tons of towing capacity. Buyers were so smitten by the trucky first generation Durango that they even ignored the tail lamps…

    28 Oct 2014 | 2:06 pm
    We Say Goodbye to the Current Generation Audi A4 MUNICH – The Audi A4 is now in the last stage of its product lifecycle and its successor is already on the horizon. Audi’s competitors in the premium sedan market, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, already introduced their latest sedans some time ago while the A4 received its mid-life refresh in late 2011. European customers can choose among six gasoline and eight diesel-powered engines, although only one, a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged version, is available in the United States. While there is no hybrid version of the A4 available, the…

    9 Oct 2014 | 5:35 am
    Things are rolling along, but this first Honda Civic HX build is taking me way longer than I expected. Needless to say, I’m immensely grateful to be able to chase this story. Valvoline sent a crew to shoot a day-in-the-life with me a few weeks back. They did an awesome job of capturing what drives me every day. We took a nice long ride in Slambo, heading out from Rancho Indebto all the way down through the Pinelands to Tuckerton, one of the towns on the Jersey Shore that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Progress Update: The first phase of work on Slambo continues. In the coming weeks,…
  • How Much Do You Spend on Gas Each Month?

    Do you keep track of much you spend on gasoline every month? What would you do with a spare twenty, fifty, or hundred dollars? Making some small changes can save a nice chunk of cash over time. The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here. Everyone in America should have the choice of what they drive.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

    Last spring, I ran a Kickstarter campaign to get a new video series off the ground. Ain’t Fuelin’ is a show unlike any other. At its core, it asks a simple question: is it possible to increase the fuel efficiency of an older vehicle and to what degree? But it wraps that question in a bigger idea, specifically: can you bring new life to old paint by infusing high tech on a low budget? Ain’t Fuelin’ draws inspiration from a host of big time shows that paved the way, from Overhaulin’ and Mythbusters to Pimp My Ride and Top Gear. It’s been a long time coming…

    When it comes to older cars and trucks, the ranks of pure restoration aficionados have long been outshadowed by the flash and thunder crowd. But the space in-between the two is widening. Restomodders update yesterday’s hot rides using the coolest technology from today, without performing major sheet metal changes … vehicle bodies look close to period stock, with faded paint on the skin hiding state-of-the-art mechanicals. Valvoline’s Reinvention Project takes restomodding to a whole new level, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson – two of today’s biggest NASCAR stars…

    25 Oct 2014 | 3:50 am
    Here comes Ford with all-new aluminum-bodied F-150s, lighter by several hundred pounds than the 2014s they replace, with even better capabilities and substantially more available features. Famed Lotus race-car designer/builder Colin Chapman touted "adding lightness" (instead of more power) to make his cars lap faster, and that "enlightened" approach works equally well for pickup trucks. A lighter truck body enables a lighter frame, lighter suspension, lighter brakes, lighter powertrain, etc. A lighter truck handles better, stops shorter and performs better. Or it can perform, tow and haul…
  • 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR Test Drive

    Nissan might have gotten off on the wrong foot earlier this year, when they introduced the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR, a brand new trim level, as the “sporty” model in the lineup. After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…

    According to Edmunds, Kia has greenlit the GT Concept for production. The Kia GT was originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011, and soon we will see a production version of the swooping sedan. This wouldn’t be Kia’s first foray into the world of luxury sedans, but it is certainly a bold move. The flagship Kia K900 sedan has been a tough sell for buyers, who are yet to drop their preexisting notions of the Korean brand.

    Because it's smaller and less expensive than its big-brother Quattroporte luxury sedan and more practical and MUCH less expensive than its GranTurismo coupe and convertible cousins, this 2015 Maserati Ghibli (starting from $66,900) is the storied Italian automaker's most important new model in many years. Its iconic Maserati grille and triple front-fender air vents, its sculpted curves and creases, its fluid coupe-like roofline, its classic trident logos and its sinewy athletic stance add up to a unique blend of Italian sportiness and elegance. Precious few four-doors come even close.

    Once again the wind whistles through the trees and a mournful cry drifts across the shadowy moors as ghostly images cruise down silent streets. Is that a Gremlin? A Shadow? Or perhaps a Demon?  No, it's just another edition of Great Cars of Death here at Car Lust. This year we've chosen a topical car for highlighting, the 1938 Cadillac Model 75 that General George S. Patton was. . . .almost killed in. Technically, he didn't actually die in the car but did pass away 12 days after having an accident in it that paralyzed him from the neck down. I say 'topical' because…

It's a bunch of little things that make no real sense whatsoever individually, but collectively, no new vehicle would be complete without them. It's called The "New" Kit.

    Sometimes, in order to take things to the next level, you really need to take a few steps backward. Rod Emory has been building Porsche 356s for a long long time, and he uses technology from the days when the cars were new. With a family tradition of building hot rods and custom cars, Mr. Emory's 356 builds tend to be somewhat outside the norm of your average 356 build. It was the Emory family that began the "Outlaw" aesthetic, and perhaps one of the most famous outlaw 356s, Rod's #19 Speedster, is profiled in another beautiful video from Petrolicious. The background that is provided in this…

    While we don’t see any engine photos for this 1977 Pontiac Firebird Formula for sale on Hemmings.com, from the P code in the VIN (and from our sources), it appears that a Pontiac-built 350 – as opposed to an Oldsmobile-built 350 or a Chevrolet-built 350, both of which were inserted into Pontiacs that year – powers this ‘Bird. Given the low miles and the care that the original owner (and now the original owner’s granddaughter) have put into preserving the car, we imagine that it looks just as sharp as the exterior and interior of the car.

The problem with modern life is this: for many, the pace is far too fast, from the daily commute in high-speed (or alternately, no-speed) rush hour traffic to the necessities of multi-tasking via desk phone, cell phone, email, and instant messenger, often simultaneously. What better way to enjoy a vacation, then, than behind the wheel of a vintage Citroen 2CV, a car renowned for its rugged simplicity, if not its acceleration or top speed? All cars used are 2CV Dolly models, built between 1981 and 1989. Thanks to a British company called…

This week, I have the new Honda Fit, which is also little — but isn’t small. At least, not where size matters. Much as I enjoyed driving the Fiesta — with its admirably eager (and laudably fuel-efficient) turbo triple engine — I’d hate to have to ride in its severely abbreviated back seat. Or try to carry more than a couple of grocery bags home in it (much less a couple of 2x4x8s). The Fit, on…

When community opposition develops against red-light camera programs, usually in the form of ballot initiatives, the camera companies set up their own “grassroots” groups to fight back. In reality these are nothing more than front groups created to give the impression of strong community support for the cameras. Often these groups may have only one…

The supermarket, a half mile away, is diagonally across an intersection. I have to press a button to get a walk signal. The button stops all four directions of traffic. I’m still not allowed to cross diagonally. To obey the law I have to stop all traffic twice, for 25 seconds each time. (I also have to wait a minute between walk signals.)

The Model D. It is very slick! And very quick! It has all-wheel-drive! Not one but two electric motors (which isn’t new, by the way). Orgiastic comparisons with Porsche 911s and other exotic high-performance cars. No mention, of course, that the government doesn’t pay people to buy 911s. Nor is Porsche a rent-seeking cartel whose existence depends on government support. I was…

  • Is Leasing A Car A Losing Game?

    31 Oct 2014 | 9:25 am
    To buy or to lease? That is the question Consumer Reports asked in a recent article examining the pros and cons of buying and leasing new cars. The answer? "In general it makes financial sense for most to buy a vehicle". The magazine says that goes double for slobs and parents -- and probably triple for parents of slovenly rugrats. ALSO SEE...

    Filed under: Hybrid, Technology, Hatchback, Hyundai, Kia, South Korea The Toyota Prius is the undisputed king of the hybrid market, but Hyundai and Kia are hoping to challenge its reign in the coming years with their own dedicated model. However, in all likelihood this is the same technology being shared between them. "We will take the lead in the future by raising the competitiveness of our environment-friendly cars like hybrid-only cars, plug-in hybrid cars and fuel cell hydrogen cars," Hyundai Motor CEO Kim Choong-ho said to Reuters, during the launch of another vehicle in South Korea.

    Filed under: SUV, Technology, Land Rover, Electric, Off-Road Tesla will soon put its all-electric Model X crossover on sale, and if it's anywhere near as successful as the brand's four-door sedan the Model S, then it'll be a hell of an attention getter for mainstream automakers. Land Rover isn't waiting for proof of the Model X's success, though. According to reports, Land Rover could be preparing an all-electric Range Rover. Likely more crossover than full-size SUV, the new vehicle would probably be far more aerodynamic than current models. But the new EV would still take advantage of LR's…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The Porsche Panamera is not widely regarded as an ultra-luxury sedan, which is understandable when you take its sporting demeanor and wonky hatchback shape into account. However, Porsche wants to change that perception (to a certain extent) by releasing the limited edition machine you see here: The Panamera Exclusive Series. Based on the extended wheelbase, weapons-grade-powerful Panamera Turbo S Executive, the Exclusive Series is painted in a decadent metallic black and brown two-tone scheme, and it wears a set of the company’s retro-cool, faux-Fuchs…

  • Toyota Camry Attempts to Shed Vanilla Image in New Model Year Refresh

    Import RPM
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:53 am
    The Toyota Camry continues to be a dominant player in an increasingly competitive segment. Yet that dominance has often bewildered competing brands considering that the Camry has long been viewed as a bit stodgy. For years Toyota attempted to make the Camry appeal to the widest group of consumers possible, and that made its styling plain and undistinctive. While it certainly has continued to be successful, Toyota took plenty of criticism from consumers and critics alike, which prompted a new direction for the 2015 model year. Despite continuing success in sales, Toyota decided to infuse a bit…

    While the Infiniti brand is increasingly known for performance, it doesn’t boast much of a racing heritage.

Nissan’s luxury arm has just announced that it will enter the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2015 with a pair of Infiniti Q50 sedans.

While Honda’s venerable CR-V isn’t all-new for the upcoming model year, the crossover was able to snag the coveted title thanks a wide range of subtle but critical improvements that helped it beat 18 other all-new or redesigned SUVs. Among the biggest improvements was the addition of a continuously variable transmission that replaced the CR-V’s 5-speed transmission. This component helped contribute to better fuel economy than the previous model year. Additionally, Motor Trend editors noted…

    The end of October approaches, and that means Halloween is this Friday. If you haven’t already, it’s now the time to dress up your kids, your house and, yes, even your car. Lots of people are participating in a newer Halloween tradition. It’s called trunk-or-treat, and it seems to be getting more and more popular. The idea behind trunk-or-treating is that you decorate your car, ideally to match whatever costumes your kids plan to wear. Your car becomes an extension of the costume, a continuation of the theme. You then fill what room you have left with candy, and kids go to…
  • You Can’t Own a Ferrari Sergio, But You Could Own Ferrari

    It’s probably the strangest Ferrari ever built. The Ferrari Sergio looks like it’s facing the wrong direction—it has the rear haunches of a Veyron and the front dimensions of a poorly designed Hot Wheels model. The irony behind the Sergio’s odd design is that it was built to honor Sergio Pininfarina, the legendary designer who created many of the trademark Ferrari shapes. Even crazier, Ferrari will build only 6 copies of the Sergio, each of which is already spoken for, at a price that probably exceeds $2.5 million each. Needless to say you can’t buy one. But soon…

    There’s no doubting car insurance is a multi-billion dollar industry which is forecast to grow in line with the expected large increase in vehicle numbers on roads worldwide. Indeed, industry watchers expect the vehicle insurance market to increase in value from about $560 billion in 2011 to around $650 billion by 2017. Although North America dominates the industry, its position is likely to be challenged by new and emerging markets like China, where disposable income has increased greatly over recent years and car ownership has risen dramatically as a consequence.

    Although we’ve not got a patch on the Americans, we British do love our big cars. Jeeps and Land Rovers have been extraordinarily popular in the UK for decades, and even though the city car has risen in popularity recently, there’s still a huge market and demand for people carriers or MPVs.

It's probably only a matter of time before this Escalade gets a complete overhaul like his last one. Photos (Zigazig-ha) Shout out to Dani for the tip!

    The idea of a driverless car has always seemed futuristic, but in 2014 we’re seeing the technology being tested in the real world with real production vehicles. Audi just took that one step further, however, testing its RS7 driverless car concept on a race track, in order to show off how fast and precise its system can be. In recent years, Google’s driverless cars have logged hundreds of thousands of miles on California roads without being involved in any autonomous-related accidents. Electric car maker Tesla also recently unveiled that its Model S P85D trim would feature an…

    Your table scraps could be put to good use in the near future, as Chevrolet will be releasing a version of its Impala sedan that runs on waste converted to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). But while you won’t be able to just toss trash into your tank like Doc Brown in Back to the Future Part II, the savings and environment benefits are definitely in favor of CNG. The environment motivation for the creation of CNG-only vehicles like the 2015 Chevy Impala Bi-Fuel appears to be just as strong as that of electric cars, as the fuel is produced from garbage and other waste by companies like…

    Owning a luxury car for most people is a sign that you are truly successful. If you own one you can’t imagine driving anything else as it offers refinement and performance unmatched by the more common brands. For those who don’t have one, we dream about it every time we see one on the street, on television, read about them and picture ourselves driving them. The price of one of these cars is always in our minds and often we think about what we can do to make it possible to afford one. But while we are doing this we rarely consider the cost of owning one of these cars and if the badge, the…

    The BMW M4 is arguably one of the most enticing sports coupe you can buy nowadays, but Munich seems determined to take its new compact up a notch. The Germans are doing so by reviving the GTS nameplate, which was introduced on the 2010 model year M3 Coupe. Only 250 units were built that year, and the entire series sold like hotcakes. Although BMW has yet to confirm the return of the GTS with the M4 Coupe, testing is already underway, albeit with a prototype disguised as a MotoGP Safety Car.First tested on German streets back in September 2014, the M4 GTS was again spotted by the automotive…

First we saw the stunning BMW M235i. That was followed by the equally alluring BMW M3 with M Performance Parts. Now, it has a BMW i8, or to be more specific, the i8 Sophisto Grey.This i8 gets its name from its Sophisto Grey paint finish, which is one of four color finishes BMW developed exclusively for the i8. Fans of the i8 clearly have a level of affinity for this particular shade, largely because it’s been dubbed the…

  • Leather on Steering Wheel Bubbling

    bmrisko
    31 Oct 2014 | 8:19 am
    Has anyone had any issues with the perforated-like leather on their steering wheel bubbling/wrinkling up? The area with the "bump" where my right hand grabs at about 2:00 on my wheel has an area under it about 1" x .5" that feels like it has separated (or has a chunk of loose foam or something in it) and can be felt under my hand and is quite annoying. I assume since mine is a 2015 with 2k miles, this should be replaced under warranty if I complain enough? My only worry is that this will get worse over time. Circled below is the general area in question.

While I was googling around I had bumped into this lawyer site looking for people that had airbag failures. Faulty TIPM Auto Accidents and Airbags not Deploying Law Offices of David Azizi . Is this anything to worry about? Do the airbags work on a relay like the fuel relay? Just being paranoid and wondering here. It is primarily the wife's car.

    Having an emergency or back-up fund is important. This money that is set aside for unplanned expenses is separate from your retirement savings and college savings accounts. According to a study by Bankrate.com, only 26 percent of Americans have an emergency fund. Personal finance experts advise keeping a minimum of three to six months of expenses or more in your fund as a cushion. But how do you know when it’s appropriate to tap into that rainy day stash? It boils down to wants vs. needs.

It turned some heads and gave enthusiasts something to ponder over when it came time to visit their nearest BMW or Audi dealership to take a look at the latest 3 Series sedan and A4. After a few generations to mature, the Lexus IS has appealed to a wide spectrum with long-touted reliability and impeccable fit and finish, potentially captivating those who would otherwise take home a new German vehicle in the same segment.

The engine power is near 1500ps and the engine produces 1760Nm torque. Weight is just 900kg and that makes a power to weight ratio of 0.75 hp per pound or 1.66ps per kg.

Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…

    This month’s Featured Ride first caught my eye from my friend David’s coverage of Wuste 2014, and then I saw the car (and owner) pop up in my Instagram feed as @CRSANDELLI and I had to reach out to Chris and learn more. Chris was kind enbough to share more information and pictures which I’ve posted here, and he happens to work at Audi Denver in Littleton, Colorado, so be sure to hit him up if you need any help with a new or used Audi in that area. While this car looks extreme, the mod list is actually fairly straightforward: Suspension: Airlift Performance Series bags with…

The kit gives the car additional kick in its performance and a couple of components to go with it like new diffuser, intakes, brakes and wheels, plus optional hood.The Mercedes S65 AMG already packs a lot of horses under its hood.

    Spy shot of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Plug-in Hybrid. (Photo Source: TopSpeed) You will never get a shortage of spy photos if you have access in Nurburgring. Recently, spies caught a variant of the Mercedes-Benz GLE in the endurance track. What made this model special is that it is a plug-in hybrid—a feature that was given away when the vehicle was caught juicing up its battery in a charging station.According to TopSpeed, the subject of the spy shots shown here will debut in 2015 under a 2016 model year. The report noted that the GLE would be the first SUV of the three-pointed star marque to…

  • Renault Australia held in higher regard than it thought, strong growth still left in it

    Mike Costello
    30 Oct 2014 | 10:48 pm
    Against the backdrop of continued record sales in Australia, Renault’s ambitious local arm has conducted a wide-ranging focus group study into what local buyers know and think about its brand — and the results have come as something of a surprise.  It turns out that any perceived negatives about being French, and the stereotypes that perhaps engenders to automotive aficionados in terms of quality and reliability, are far less pervasive that it had guessed.  As such, says Renault Australia managing director Justin Hocevar, the company has a “clean slate” to take the next step in its…

    The recently updated 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe is now slightly dearer in top-spec Highlander guise, but it now gets even more equipment than the already generously specified model it replaces.   The $53,240 Highlander is $1250 more than the 2014 version, and adds new items such as an automated reverse parallel parking system and front parking sensors, along with a lane departure warning system.   This new gear supplements the Santa Fe’s extensive equipment list, which includes 19-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, rear window blinds, three-row ventilation, leather trim, heated…
  • Mini 5 Door to end decade-long sales plateau for brand in Australia, says local boss

    Tim Beissmann
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:11 pm
    The new Mini 5 Door will end a decade-long sales plateau and take the brand to record heights in Australia, the company’s local boss says. The new 5 Door body style adds rear doors, a fifth seat and more rear legroom and boot space over the regular three-door hatch for an $1100 premium, giving it an initial starting price of $27,750 for the Cooper before the $25,600 Cooper One slots in beneath it early next year. Mini expects five-door-loving Australians to make the new model the brand’s most popular in our market once vehicles start arriving in significant numbers in February. Speaking…

    Mike Costello
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:03 pm
    In a shake-up of the status quo, Maserati posted a higher operating profit in the third quarter of 2014 than Ferrari, thanks in part to the Maranello-based brand’s golden handshake with now-former chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.  Fuelled by strong growth of its Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans, Maserati made 90 million euros ($128m) between July and September, more than doubling its profits over the same period in 2013.  Shipments in Q3 hit a peak of 8896 units, while annual volume sits at 26,428 vehicles.  At this time last year that figure was just 7548 vehicles, meaning the…

Mini Australia national manager Kai Bruesewitz confirmed plans for the addition of the base variant at the launch of the new 5 Door hatch range in Adelaide this week. “We want to appeal to younger families and we want to be affordable, so the Mini One will help with that,” Bruesewitz told CarAdvice. As with the rest of the 5 Door range, the 5 Door Cooper One will cost $1100 more than its equivalent three-door, meaning a starting price of $25,600 for…

  • The PetrolBlog review: Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC Lineartronic

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC is an impossible car to love. In fact, I don’t even think Subaru UK is too fond of the WRX STI’s frumpy and rather dowdy sibling. Its return to the UK was announced with little fanfare back in March, it went on sale in May and yet very few people know of its existence. It’s understandable really. To Subaru UK, the Impreza WRX STI must be like an excitable puppy – a high profile icon with an ability to sprinkle magic across the entire Subaru range. It would probably lick your face, if you asked it nicely. The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC, on the…
  • The MINI One 3-door Hatch is the real Special One

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    16 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    You could spend an awful lot of time and money ‘upgrading’ your new MINI 3-door Hatch. I had a play with the online configurator and it wasn’t long before my £16,450 Cooper D was the wrong side of £25,000. Don’t get me wrong, the end result was a seriously well-equipped car, but to spend that amount of cash on a new MINI would be bunkum. The good news is, you don’t need to. On a wet and windy day in the Cotswolds, I had a play in the all-new MINI One with MINI’s new 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol engine and I’m delighted to report it’s nothing short of brilliant. Proper junior…
  • Is this the end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel?

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    13 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    Forthcoming changes to the MOT test could spell an end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel, PetrolBlog has learnt. Under the planned new Style and Decency section of the annual MOT test, 3-spoke alloy wheels could be driven off the road, with any car wearing them receiving an instant failure notice. This is bad news for motorists with poor taste, but excellent news for the rest of us who have been forced to live with the terrible spectacle for far too many years. The news comes as the Department for Transport seeks to rid the streets of horrendous aftermarket modifications and to save carmakers…
  • Local radio station under fire for misleading listeners

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    8 Oct 2014 | 10:45 am
    A local radio station came under fire today amid claims it had deliberately misled its listeners, encouraging them to enter a competition under false pretences. Letchworth-based Garden FM, the self-proclaimed home of “Inane chat and hopeless drivel”, used a premium rate phone line to support a competition to supposedly win a brand-new Volvo XC90. But to the horror of the listeners, who were also expecting an all-expenses skiing trip in The Alps, the actual prize was something much less exciting. In fact, the real prize was quite terrifying. Rather than the all-new Volvo XC90…

    Ahead of its launch at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, PetrolBlog has obtained exclusive information on the all-new Vauxhall Viva. So far, Vauxhall has only released a single teaser image and a few lines of marketing guff, so this is proper, hot-off-the-press stuff. Only it came via fax. Speaking to a chap known only to us as ‘Phil’, who curiously was wearing a faded-blue Ford Rallye Sport bomber jacket, the all-new Vauxhall Viva will share much in common with the original car, first introduced in 1963. This must be true, because a Vauxhall press release said so: “Designed for…

  • Fiat Chrysler reiterates full-year profit forecast for 2014

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    31 Oct 2014 | 10:11 am
    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is still expecting to post an operating profit, excluding one-off items, of between EUR3.6 billion and EUR4 billion for the full year 2014 even after missing forecasts of analysts for the third quarter. The carmaker logged a 7.4-percent surge increase in earnings before interest and taxes to EUR926 million ($1.18 billion) from EUR862 million a year earlier. Even with the jump, it was still slightly below the EUR937-million average estimate of eight analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.

    Tweets do bring in sweets for carmakers. That was the findings of a new study released by Twitter, attempting to show how much tweets are worth. Doing the measurement is Twitter partner and marketing analytics specialist MarketShare, gauging both the direct and indirect effects the social media site had on auto sales for over 20 nameplates -- volume mid-size and luxury compact cars -- that accounted for 34 percent of auto sales in the United States last year. According to Twitter, the model also includes “broader media mix, and non-marketing factors that influence purchases such as…

    If yesterday it was just a rumor, today Mercedes-AMG officially announced that it will acquire a 25 percent stake in MV Agusta. No details regarding the price to be paid for the stake in MV Agusta was disclosed, while the partnership is still subject to the approval of the relevant authorities. The new partnership gives the German carmaker access to lightweight three-cylinder engines and follows a similar move made by the Volkswagen Group, which acquired Italian motorcycle maker Ducati for 860 million euros in 2012. As you may know already, Volkswagen unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show the…

    31 Oct 2014 | 7:54 am
    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles posted a 7-percent jump in operating profit in the third quarter of 2014 to EUR926 million ($1.18 billion). The result was lower than the average EUR940 million of eight analysts surveyed by Reuters, no thanks to weaker margins in North America as well as slowdown in Latin America. The carmaker, however, surpassed analyst expectations for its revenues in the period, growing from EUR20.7 billion a year ago to EUR23.6 billion. At end of September 2014, FCA had a net industrial debt of EUR11.4 billion, compared to EUR9.7 billion at the end of June. In May this year,…

For those who don’t know, the vehicle was first introduced back in 1990 and since then, an average 420,000 vehicles per year were sold, which is approximately 1,100 a day. Elantra also won the North American Car of the Year award back in 2020 and it is currently company’s volume leader as it helped Hyundai to set a U.S. sales record in each of the past four years.

    28 Oct 2014 | 10:43 am
    By Titus Bloom, October 13, 2014 Race engine progress follows a basic pattern: As power increases, problems emerge and as the ingenuity of the race engineer solves them other problems appear. Race engines operate in a state of perpetual crisis. In the 1970s Top Fuel cars generated 2,500 to 3,000hp today they make 8,000 to 10,000hp. To get from 2,500 to 10,000hp a lot of problems needed solutions.

    At the end of a day, all automakers in India have to go CNG, and as Honda is no excteption to this clause, is now rumoured of launching the CNG-driven Amaze soon. It seems the success of Amaze – for being first Honda car in India with diesel engine – had turned the Japanese automaker to also look into the remaining gap of most-efficient drivable options. It will be viable with the petrol engine of 1.2-liter i-VTEC. Hence, company will not brush up the whole line-up with this new fuel-option. Instead, E and EX variants, apparently also a one from top-end, will make to this new list. An…

    admin
    25 Oct 2014 | 9:59 pm
    Full-size SUVs offer benefits that other SUV segments can’t match. Full-size SUVs contain the most interior passenger and cargo volume, have larger engines and are built on a chassis of full-size pick-up trucks. However, full-size SUVs offer lower fuel economy and have higher prices than their midsize SUV counterparts. Shopping For A Large SUV The auto industry often uses the term crossover to define an SUV, but this refers to a vehicle built on a car platform rather than one based on a platform for a truck. Full-size SUVs are usually truck-based, have excellent towing capability, better…

    Brian Driggs
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    The last thing I’ve learned about rally over the last decade is this. WRC is lame compared to regional, clubman level rally. Seriously. I couldn’t name three current WRC drivers right now.

    You will never get rich rallying. Here’s the deal. Even if you grew up karting in Europe and somehow managed to score a ride with a manufacturer, the number of WRC seats available seems to get smaller every year. The vast majority of rallyists do it for fun. Cash prizes are the exception – not the rule – and they’re seldom enough to cover entry to the event where they were earned, let alone recoup all the costs in getting there.  Flying from two different countries to a third to rally. Maybe shipping a car, too. You don’t make that kind of money rallying. We have a…
  • Rally is More Than Driving Fast

    Brian Driggs
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    I know, I know. Rally is about driving fast. 10 years fairly immersed in the sport has shown me it’s about so much more, though. It’s about control. Vehicle control. Self control. We rally fans sometimes point out that, while a Formula 1 driver might see a corner 50 or 60 times in a race, a rally driver is likely to see 50 or 60 corners just once. What’s more, the rally driver has only the verbal instructions of his co-driver as a basis for proper setup into each corner.  There is such an incredible amount of trust involved in rally. Think about it for a minute. The driver has to trust…

This is huge, because knowing how to work on our own vehicles usually means we’re spending the money we save (and then some) on improving them. And, as anyone who’s ever built a legitimate race car will tell you, playing by the rules gets expensive quickly. We’re all familiar with how quickly performance modifications add up to big money.

    Ford has announced that they have made $1.2 billion for the third quarter of the year. Although it sounds like a lot, the company will be disappointed with that figure. During the same period last year, the American car company made $2.6 billion. That represents a 54 percent drop in profits. Some of the factors are down to the costs of recalls and economic troubles in Europe and the rest of the world. 23 new models have also been in the pipeline for this year which would have been a major factor. The aim is to raise the profits for the rest of the year going into 2015. Ford is banking on…

    This particular Ford model is the alternative to the 1.5 Ecosport 1.5 litre diesel. Some experts were not particularly fond of the diesel version, so is the petrol version any better? The car was inspired by the idea of the ‘Ford One’, a strategy to make all models adaptable for all worldwide car markets. Initially, the car was sold in Brazil, starting from 2003. It was very suited to the country, given the conditions of roads. The added height to the ride made driving in the country a lot easier. Ever since then, the B-segment crossover market has recently taken off throughout the world.

    28 Oct 2014 | 3:37 pm
    Luxury, power and superior craftsmanship. The 2015 BMW 328i at Chapman BMW on Camelback is a standout in the luxury sedan market, deftly beating the Lexus IS 250, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-300 across the board. The 2015 BMW 328i, powered by a TwinTurbo engine that makes 255 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm is also fuel efficient: It makes an estimated 35mpg on the highway, compared to the less-than-robust 27mpg the Mercedes achieves, or the 32-mpg of the Audi A4. And the Lexus IS 250? Its puny 185hp is no match for the BMW. Standard safety features on the BMW 328i include Xenon Adaptive…

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control…

  • When a Keyless Security System Leads to Car Theft

    Author
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:52 am
    It wasn’t long ago when a list of hackable cars was released. According to security experts Chris Valasek and Charlie Miller, smart cars are not so smart after all, what with their vulnerabilities easily accessible using nothing more than a laptop and a wireless connection. However, as what thieves of high-end cars have recently proven, you don’t need a laptop to mess up a vehicle, just a keyless security system to drive away with it. The US National Insurance Crime Bureau has earlier warned about an increase in car theft, involving the keyless entry. It was also reported that owners of…

    27 Oct 2014 | 9:45 am
    For a mobile vehicle to qualify as a collectible, it has to be astounding right off its assembly line. But astounding doesn’t just mean sporting the latest car technology or having the best ratings. More importantly, it means having special rarity. A collectible should belong to a particular lineage and have a moment in time when its brand was atop. And of course, it should look unique and beautiful in physical form. That said, here is a list of contemporary cars that have stood out enough to be considered collectibles for the next 25 years. Maserati Ghibli S Priced $75,000, the…
  • The Best Green Cars to Drool Over

    The problem with most green cars is that they’re friendly to the environment, but so un-friendly on fun and performance. With the need to be efficient on fuel consumption and low in emission, most green cars are stripped down to their barest. But that was then, when they mostly suck. Some of the production green cars today are definitely great improvements from their predecessors. You won’t even think they’re green at all, judging from their impressive features.

    A good friend of mine just announced his engagement to a girl that is as they say, way above his station. He wooed her from the first day they met, exceeded her expectations, gained her trust and now he has a partner. So what’s the automotive lesson here? Your Internet presence and processes are parallel to this example. There’s the initial introduction, getting to know each other, building trust and closing the deal.

    While traveling on a plane this morning to a meeting, I started thinking about what it is going to take to be successful in generating traffic for the end of the year. A couple of things seem different this year than years past, but there still is opportunity during the November and December holidays. First, Thanksgiving is late this year falling the very last week of November with only three remaining days in the month. For most people that Friday and Saturday will probably take care of business and have enough lift from end of the month momentum combined with the holiday traffic.

    Today is historic. For the first time ever, an impartial panel is going to present a college football poll. No one knows for sure how it will jibe with public opinion, which is in truth, my opinion. My parallel point – and much more crucial to adding business to your ledger – until customers declare their position for buying or leasing, no personal opinion from anyone at the dealership is needed until specifically asked. The buy or lease debate can be as heated as two fans arguing over whose team is the best in the nation. I read an interesting report from Edmonds.com discussing two very…

    In my travels to dozens of dealerships, I always pause turning into the driveway to take a look at the facility – the rows of inventory, the flags, the landscaping, and signage. The reason for this is a term that’s been around for a long time – “standing tall”. We are in a time when shoppers may visit only 1.8 dealerships before taking delivery, yes, delivery of a new or used vehicle. That first impression is extremely important. Before physically visiting your store, your customers will visit your digital dealership one or more times. Today it is even more important that your…

  • Renault Duster Oroch concept revealed

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:21 pm
    Apparently pick-ups account for 75% of the South American light commercial vehicle market. So Renault’s decision to convert the Duster SUV into a truck makes a lot of sense (even if it’s just a concept for now). The Oroch, which is due to be unveiled at the upcoming São Paulo Motor Show, combines a five-seat, four-door cab with a short cargo box. A set of 18” wheels, chunky bumpers and some protective body cladding help to achieve a suitably rugged look. In typical attention-grabbing concept style, some rather superfluous features are also part of the specification. These include a…

The same pattern also appears on the vehicle’s roof, flanks and bonnet. To enhance the Outdoorsman’s all-terrain ability, numerous Mopar accessories have been fitted too. Among them are a suspension levelling kit, a unique roof rack and some 17” bead lock wheels which sit beneath extended arches. Related posts:2015 Ram 2500 and 3500…
  • Detroit Electric SP:01 design finalised

    27 Oct 2014 | 1:02 pm
    Detroit Electric has finalised the exterior styling of its SP:01 electric-powered sports car, which is set to enter production later this year. Compared to the prototype, the main difference is the adoption of a more aerodynamic fastback rear window instead of separate flying buttresses. Other changes include reshaped air intakes and bonnet ducts at the front. The back end meanwhile gains both a spoiler and a diffuser to increase downforce. There’s still no mistaking the SP:01’s obvious Lotus roots, though. Performance should be impressive, as Detroit Electric is promising a 0-60 mph (96…

    An Italian beauty. Every so often, a horse has to get new shoes, and that same mentality applies to the Prancing Horses at Ferrari – or at least it should. The factory wheel and tire setup on the fastest, non-hybrid production car from Maranello was given a set of new forged PUR wheels for a fresh new look. The 730-horsepower Ferrari F12Berlinetta is one of, if not the, most powerful and fastest grand tourers in the world and adds a rather hardcore touch to the segment. While its engine may be eye-openingly powerful, the smooth rounded lines and classic Italian figure still remains and…

If you aren’t very experienced and don’t understand the turning radius, size, and abilities of your vehicle, you’re likely going to have a tough time not hitting another vehicle. This, however, is bad… scary bad. This driver in China not only hit the parked car over 10 times while attempting to leave, but spent over 10 minutes trying to accomplish the maneuver.

That’s why it’s a real treat to bear witness to one of only four made (three for customers) revving its engine and warming up. Thankfully, the always-in-the-right-place supercar-spotter, Marchettino was able to film one of the beasts being unloaded and loaded on a rainy day. Yes, the Lamborghini Veneno is based on the Aventador, but as you can see in the video, it’s so much more than that. Sharp, angular aerodynamics cut…

    8 Oct 2014 | 11:18 pm
    Anti-lock braking system (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows the wheels on a motor vehicle to maintain tractive contact with the road surface according to driver inputs while braking, preventing the wheels from locking up (ceasing rotation) and avoiding uncontrolled skidding. It is an automated system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking which were practiced by skillful drivers with previous generation braking systems. It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control…

    Today, Ducati is one of the first names a person might think of when asked to name a major motorcycle manufacturer. It wasn’t always that way, with Ducati starting out as an electronics and appliance firm. Oh how far they have come. In the mid 1940s, a Turin lawyer and a self taught engineer had an idea to build a clip on engine, that could be fitted to bicycles. By 1946, the prototype had been manufactured, the short muffler giving a yipping sound as it kicked over, the nickname given to the power unit was Cucciolo, Italian for ‘puppy’. The engine was a success, with demand…

It had been passed over by many people who had thought nothing of it, but none of them had a vintage motorcycle they were having trouble disassembling. The problem i was facing was that the metal used in the manufacture of my engine is very low quality, making it apt to crack if forced. The wooden wedge looked soft enough to aid me. I took the piece home, and in less than 10 minutes I had removed the cover, then found the wedge handy in holding the crank from…

The ‘smuggler’s box’ relates to the little trap door under the luggage compartment where an optional oil heater resided. It is known as such because it was a way that owners of the 911 used to smuggle illicit substances across borders in Europe when the heater was not in place. This was until customs officials caught on to the trick, and began purposefully searching the ‘smuggler’s…

  • Could coconut kernels be the key to hydrogen-powered cars?

    15 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Scientists have been trying to figure out how to power cars using hydrogen for years, and have been struggling. This is because it has to be kept at extremely cool temperatures, as hydrogen has a boiling point of -252.8°C in its liquid state which is quite difficult to achieve in a vehicle without large pressurised tanks.

However, this law hasn’t prevented a former CNN courts commentator from being arrested for drunk driving five times within a year, and never serving more than 10 days in jail.

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:13 am
    Spark plugs are one of the most important yet undervalued auto parts, not because most owners don’t know about them but they rarely have to check them.

    Riley
    29 Oct 2014 | 2:44 pm
    Those of us that want to become greener motorists usually opt for a hybrid or all-electric vehicle. In the United States, around 1% of all vehicles on public roads are electric. The only trouble with electric cars is that they have a low range of 100 miles or so before needing a charge. We could always opt for hybrid vehicles. But in a sense you are an “honorary” green motorist. You still have to buy gas for your car when you own a hybrid. Japanese carmaker Toyota believes it has the answer to this problem: hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The car you are looking at in this blog post is a…

    Detroit Electric was revived in 2008, by Albert Lam, former Lotus executive, with a vision to produce an electric vehicle with exceptional performance and handling. At the same time, the future electric vehicle would also seamlessly integrate refined style and innovative technology. Later, at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the Detroit Electric SP:01 prototype was revealed, perhaps wrongly perceived as little more than an electrified Lotus Esprit. With a 2015 production date looming, the company has revealed the final design of the Detroit Electric SP:01 production model. Since the 2013…

    New Zealand is home to “Zorbing,” a thrill-seekers’ pastime that involves placing a person inside an inflatable plastic ball and rolling it down a hill. Possible nausea aside, it is practically impossible to injure oneself due to the thoughtful construction of the Zorb. The Zorb is constructed of two layers of flexible plastic, the “passenger compartment” big enough to lounge in, and a much larger outer ball, which is in contact with the ground. The space between the two balls is inflated, providing a safe cushion of air. Rolling down a hill, over a rock, or even into a wall, is no…

  • How the Farm Shaped our Grandparents into Fixers

    Flickr: Nicholas A. Tonelli Today, the word “farm” probably conjures up images of a man in overalls on TV talking about “real” butter or a roadside sign advertising hayrides and apple picking. This is to say that for many of us, farm life is a romanticized idea, not something that really exists today. For many of our grandparents, living and working on the farm was the only reality they knew. It was not the idyllic life so often portrayed on TV, it was a hard life-physically, emotionally and financially. The hardships on the farm are what shaped our grandparents into Fixers. Flickr:…

However, according to Automotive News, a company source at Chrysler said the SRT will “likely be renamed” for 2016, but that decision was not yet final. The future of the mighty Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT looked bleak earlier this year, as Chrysler said it would only give Dodge vehicles the SRT name in the future.

The outgoing 2014 Viper, previously labeled as an SRT, started at $101,880, whereas the new 2015 model now starts at $86,990, both with destination.

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Recently, I discovered a beautiful book of photographs – “The Silence of Dogs in Cars” – by photographer Martin Usborne.  Usborne poetically captures the quietude of dogs, locked away behind closed car doors as they wait, resigned, and sometimes, with frightened anger, for their owners’ return.  Even when the subjects of this book are barking ferociously at some unseen stranger, their bark is muffled and eerily silenced. Usborne was inspired by memories of waiting alone in the car when he was a kid, for his parent’s return as they ducked into stores for a quick shop.  Kids are…

I begrudgingly agreed and bought him a Morph suit to wear, but insisted that he decorate it with glow sticks.  In retrospect, I am not sure that the addition of glow sticks was actually enough especially after reading the above statistic (see photo – I am sure you will agree).  He refused…

    Future Fuel Regulations With heavy-duty trucks and buses producing an estimated 20 percent of greenhouse gases in the United States each year, it is understandable that any regulations to reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels and lower the resulting emissions are going to target the efficiency of long-haul tractor-trailers.

Before you begin talking with a seller, make sure you have everything ready on your side for the best negotiating position.

Most companies require you to make a 20 percent down payment. They will need verification that you have a valid CDL license and an acceptable FICO score.

    Best Hours For Trucking Anytime a new driver ask experienced drivers about the best time to drive, they get the same response: “Drive when you have to, sleep when you can.” The road and customers can wreck havoc on your nerves, making restful sleep difficult and sporadic. Even when you do get seven or so hours of sleep, you can still spend your waking hours feeling run down and fatigued if you are on an inconsistent schedule. Plan ahead You can be sure that it is not going to play out the way you hoped, but government regulations on driving time combined with varied loading and…

Essentially, eBay charge 10% of the sale price of any number plate, so in the example we’ve used, with a starting price of £1,000, and a reserve price of £1,500, you’ll pay an Insertation Fee of £0.35, and a Listing Upgrade Fee of £59.86 (for setting a reserve price).

It’s definitely a strange sight to see the 412kW saloon at race speeds without a driver behind the wheel, but perhaps even more strange is how standard the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept appears on the inside. That’s because aside from a few extra cameras, the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept utilises most of the standard RS 7′s existing systems like electromechanical power steering.
