So we’re going to be running this for the next few months to see if it can live up to those bold economy claims (unlikely, we know, but it’ll be interesting to see what we can actually get from it in everyday use) and, of course, to see how it stacks up as a used proposition. Is it too early to say our Outlander will live up to those impressive economy figures? Definitely maybe, some might say.As part of its new turnaround plan, Opel is exploring potential new markets for cars and light trucks outside of its European heartland.
Can you remember a time when 'cavalier' wasn’t merely the attitude of the White House’s incumbent but one of the most prolific automobiles on UK roads? Then settle into a bout of nostalgia as we look back at our 1989 and 1990 What Car? Family Car of the Year winner, the Mk3 Vauxhall Cavalier.
The track-focused Camaro is attractively priced, with the V-6 1LE in its base 1LS trim starting at less than 33 grand—some $5000 cheaper than the least expensive V-8 Camaro SS. (Get one with a few niceties, as on our 2LT test car, however, and the cost advantage over the SS becomes narrower.) As it does when ordered on V-8 and ZL1 models, the 1LE option brings a bundle of both cosmetic and mechanical modifications. Here that means a version of the SS’s suspension with retuned dampers, rear subframe mounts, and anti-roll bars. There also are staggered-width 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels carrying 245/40ZR-20 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires at the front and 275/35ZR-20s at the rear; a limited-slip differential; Brembo four-pot front brake calipers; enhanced cooling for the engine, transmission, and differential; and a dual-mode exhaust system. Visual changes for the V-6 model include satin-black vinyl wraps for the hood and side mirrors, a splitter beneath the front bumper, and a lip spoiler on the trunklid.
“WRC 7” has three game modes: solo, which includes the career mode, multiplayer and challenge, where new online events appear. I jumped into career mode with the Ford team and promptly finished seventh out of 10. That was with a bunch of respawns, which put you back on the track no matter where you’re at, with a seven- or nine-second penalty, depending on if you get stuck on a tree, or if the game senses you’ve committed suicide off a cliff. A respawn is better than the alternative.
"During his time as president and a member of the board of directors, Arjay’s guidance and leadership played an important role in the company’s turnaround after World War II and through the changing times of the 1960s," Bill Ford said in a statement Wednesday.
Thor is the largest RV builder in America, producing one in four of the new RVs you see on the road. Thor was formed in 2010 by the merger of Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds International. Thor produces all kinds of gas- and diesel-powered Class A and Class C RVs. A Class A is basically one of those huge rectangles you see powering down the highway, often with a mural of lions and lionesses on the back. Class C is what looks more like a Class A in back but like a cabover camper in front. Class Cs ride on pickup truck frames and are powered by pickup truck powertrains. There are other classes of motor homes out there: those van conversions, all those things built on the Mercedes Sprinter. And then there are trailers, from monster fifth-wheel hauling homes to tiny teardrop-shaped sleepers.
To get a real insight into the views of the people who are making the crossover boom happen, we arranged a secret unveil event, inviting a cross-section of Auto Express readers to give us their views on the Arona. The readers were told they were attending an unveil of an all-new SUV, but they weren’t aware which brand of car it was.
Customers wishing to opt in for the Huntsman pack will benefit from extra bed space for dog boxes and lockable storage space for firearms. The Huntsman D-Max is available in three paint options of green, black and grey that have been designed to blend into the shrubbery and avoid spooking game.
Racing with Toyota at Le Mans and other endurance races should give him better luck than he had this season with McLaren-Honda in F1 and at Indy. Though Toyota has never won Le Mans, it is known to be developing a new WEC car.
