2017 Toyota Prius Prime in Depth: New and Improved, Still Not a Chevrolet Volt

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Overall Rating:

The Prius Prime, all new for 2017, is a plug-in chronicle of Toyota’s iconic Prius with a incomparable battery that enables an EPA-rated 25 miles of electric-only driving, a slew of customary active reserve technology, and a high-tech cabin. Its singular powertrain is fit though differently definitely joyless, and a Prius can’t conduct even half of a electric pushing operation of a Chevrolet Volt. Toyota earns points for significantly improving pushing dynamics opposite a Prius lineup compared with a prior generation, though a Prime still checks fewer boxes than a Volt, that stays a plug-in of choice.

What’s New for 2017?

The new Prius Prime is formed heavily on a latest-generation Prius, that was introduced in 2016. As with a hybrid sibling, it sits on Toyota’s New Global Architecture height and has an softened powertrain, redesigned exterior, and updated interior compared with a prior Prius plug-in. It is visually renowned from a customary Prius by a restyled front and back ends.

Trims and Options We’d Choose

Every Prius Prime has a same powertrain, so you’re giveaway to select formed on facilities that come with any of a 3 trim levels. We’d select a mid-level Premium trim, that adds several comfort equipment compared with a bottom Plus though stays next $30,000. Standard facilities in a Premium indication include:

• 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system
• Qi wireless charging pad
• Leatherette-trimmed front seats

The sum comes to $29,685. Drivers who are seduced by active reserve record might cite a $33,985 Advanced trim, that adds blind-spot monitoring and self-parking facilities to a elite model.

2018 Jaguar E-Pace Spied, Including Interior and Cargo Space

Friday, June 16th, 2017

What It Is: Jaguar scarcely went 100 years yet building a singular SUV or crossover, yet now that a gates have non-stop by a F-Pace, they competence as good be taken off a hinges. Following a eager accepting given to that SUV, Jaguar is anticipating to keep adult the, uh, gait by entirely committing to a trend. In a nearby future, Jaguar will triple a utility-vehicle participation by rising a all-electric I-Pace crossover, as good as a E-Pace graphic here: radically a baby F-Pace, most in a same approach a XE sedan is a smaller kin to a XF.

Why It Matters: Through May of this year, Jaguar has sole scarcely as many F-Paces as a rest of a lineup combined. The crossover lust is real, and as most as we adore a F-type sports car, it’s not going to keep a lights on in a office. High-riding practicality will.

In these camo’d view shots, in that a E-Pace confusingly wears a Minnesota permit plate, we get a clearest views nonetheless of a interior, despite in right-hand-drive form. And yet most of a cabin has black coverings stealing a materials and design, a joystick shifter pulled from a F-type sports automobile stands out. That’s a depart from a rest of a Jaguar and Land Rover lineups, that use pop-up rotary rigging selectors.

Platform: The brief overhangs on this antecedent give law to a thought that a E-Pace will share a underpinnings with dual corporate relatives, a front-drive-based Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Though it has an honest coming in these photos, a E-Pace looks like it’ll have a sleek, well-developed pattern with a roofline that slopes, coupe-like, toward a rear. Stylistically, Jaguar and Land Rover have been on a roll, and this indication should demeanour as moist as any other indication from a association when it debuts.

The view shots also yield a initial demeanour during a approach a hatchback opens. Unlike some other tiny crossovers that have back openings that hang around into a back quarters, a E-Pace has a small, rounded-off liftgate. The liftover tallness looks sincerely high for a tiny crossover, yet shouldn’t make loading unduly difficult.

Powertrain: This shred relies heavily on turbocharged four-cylinder engines, and a E-Pace expected will be no different. The Discovery Sport and Evoque are both set to use Jaguar Land Rover’s new Ingenium turbocharged inline-four that creates 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. We design that engine to be employed here, and for a energy to be put to a belligerent by a nine-speed involuntary gearbox and all-wheel drive.

Competition:Audi Q3, BMW X1, Infiniti QX30, Lexus NX, Mercedes-Benz GLA-class.

Estimated Arrival and Price: The E-Pace should be denounced this summer, forward of going on sale in a winter. A infancy of a shred is labelled in a low-to-mid $30K range, and we design a E-Pace to likewise tumble in line.

Is a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Making a Surprise Appearance this Weekend?

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Photos have leaked of a lonesome Chevrolet Corvette roving solo in an airplane.

First reported by Automobile, a photos show what appears to be a 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 underneath a automobile cover and strapped inside a plane. It is pronounced that a Corvette was a usually passenger in a 747 moody to Europe, and another print of a back shows an pointed exhaust, typically finished to extent sound decibels for certain tracks. This isn’t a initial time we’ve had reports of a Corvette ZR1 being too shrill for certain tracks, with view photographers throwing a ZR1 antecedent testing nearby a Nurburgring with a mutated empty during an angle. Race cars mostly have to do this to contest during Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in a U.S.

SEE ALSO: Corvette ZR1 Engine Information Leaks

Now while there has already been a Corvette ZR1 antecedent contrast on a Nurburgring, this one is a bit different. The reduce back fascia of a automobile in a plane is lonesome in deception instead of being prosaic black, and it’s sporting opposite wheels.

The timing of a conveyance creates it interesting. While Chevrolet could have several reasons on since it expedited a singular Corvette by atmosphere to Europe, a one that creates a many clarity is this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race. It wouldn’t be a warn that Chevrolet would have a automobile on palm during one of a world’s many famous races, even if it’s heavily camouflaged.

The good thing is we don’t have to wait really prolonged to find out where it’s heading, since if it creates an coming during Le Mans, we’ll know this weekend. And if it doesn’t, it’s expected a view photographers will locate this antecedent contrast during a Nurburgring.

First Hyundai N automobile entrance to US in 2018, and we consider we know what it is

Friday, June 16th, 2017

SEOUL, South Korea – At a worldwide entrance for a all-new Hyundai Kona compress crossover in South Korea, a organisation of reporters was given a hide demeanour during Hyundai’s new N opening automobile division. The group, led by Albert Biermann, has been tasked with giving Hyundai a opening picture over a occasional automobile like a Genesis coupe or Veloster Turbo. Its initial project, the i30 N, is scarcely complete. Unfortunately, it’s not entrance to a US, yet we will be removing a unequivocally possess N automobile someday subsequent year.

Now, Biermann and Hyundai will not contend what that automobile is, though all signs indicate to a Veloster. Hyundai won’t criticism on destiny products, though we saw during slightest 3 graphic versions of a Veloster contrast during Namyang during a visit. There was a customary indication with center-mounted trapezoidal empty tips. There was a turbo-badged indication with dual turn center-mounted empty tips. Finally, we saw what is certainly a N model. This had a dark N badge in a grille (in a same place as a i30 Ns that we saw) and empty tips that were pushed to a corners of a bumper.

We weren’t authorised to take photos of anything, though a new Veloster has a same elementary uneven figure as before, as seen in some view photos. The interior looks to be identical to a i30, with a floating infotainment arrangement and a purify and elementary layout. Unfortunately, many of a extraneous was still lonesome in camouflage. Despite a march of cars, there was zero on a extraneous that we haven’t seen in spy photos.

Other sum are scarce, though demeanour for a turbo indication to keep a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline four, good for during slightest 200 horsepower. That should give a N indication copiousness of respirating room. We trust it will get a same engine as a i30 N, definition a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four creation during slightest 250 horsepower, presumably more. While we didn’t get a possibility to expostulate a i30 N, a cars done all a right noises when blustering about.

According to Biermann, it was a sound of tuned Hondas and Kias blustering about Hyundai’s RD trickery that unequivocally kicked things off with N. Engineers were shopping other cars given there wasn’t most on offer. Hyundai wanted to give people cars they could lane and balance and be only as quick as a competition.

We have high hopes for both a Veloster N and a N multiplication as a whole. Biermann was before a clamp boss of engineering for BMW’s M multiplication and was in assign of a growth of a M3, M4, and M6. He seem honestly vehement about his purpose during Hyundai and a prospects for a future.

Biermann spoke frankly about foundation for N cars. “It’s a matter of time as to when it happens.” he said. “But, we have no stream plans.” Unlike a Germans, Hyundai won’t have an N chronicle of each model, only a ones that make sense. The cars all have to be lane capable, so don’t demeanour for a Kona N anytime soon.

“We won’t let we down,” Biermann said. Look for some-more news someday this fall.

Dark Arts: 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe Performance Studio

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Mercedes-AMG has given its GLE Coupe a jack o’lantern diagnosis with adequate orange accents and black trim to start a dress party.

Following a character of a 2016 CLA Edition: Orange and this year’s SLC RedArt, a Performance Studio Package (called OrangeArt in Europe, where it is also offering on non-AMG GLEs) is dim as ruin inside, with black nappa leather and microfiber seats surrounded by an all-black dash, carpets, and roof. Gray stitching on a dash, doors, and seats, aluminum trim, and orange piping on a seats and building mats are a usually tools to locate any light.

Additional black rings around a LED headlights, along with black wheels, mirrors, and doorway trim uncover contrariety if we spec a Studio in white, silver, or gray (also available: dual choices of black). This mood is reasonably critical for a AMG GLE43 Coupe, a grievous Frankenstein SUV that freaks us out whether parked or hurtling brazen on a large 21-inch rubber. It didn’t need to wear a new costume, really.

Mercedes-Benz USA says it will deliver a package here late this summer. Pricing isn’t set yet, though it’s satisfactory to design that a few hundred souls will provide themselves someday between a Fourth of Jul and Halloween.

Nick Tandy reveals a heartless fee of a Le Mans 24-hour race: ‘We’re tighten to feverishness exhaustion’

Friday, June 16th, 2017

“I know from use yesterday that you’re holding on some-more fluids than are indeed in a automobile to splash on an hourly basis. And if we wish to do 4 hours in a automobile in this temperature, we are really going to have to approach some-more energy into a atmosphere conditioning into a cockpit.”

Heat is only one of Tandy’s headaches. The World Endurance Championship driver, who will competition in a Porsche 919 hybrid, is some-more than wakeful that he and his group are confronting their toughest plea in new years.

Junior Moon and Sally’s Mustache: Inside Pixar’s Pursuit of Authenticity in a “Cars” Films

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Cars 3Cars 3

Among film critics, a Cars cinema tend to be a slightest dear of Pixar’s works. And admittedly, the Mater-centric view play of Cars 2 wasn’t a patch on a initial film’s loyalty to a universe of stock-car racing and a peculiar small city hardly sticking to life in a American Southwest. But for those with a clever tie to cars and trucks and things that go, a perfect volume of minute automotive nerdery creates for constrained viewing. Cars 3, that opens Jun 16, wisely earnings to a series’ roots in stock-car competition, this time with favourite Lightning McQueen (again uttered by Owen Wilson) staring down a finish of his racing career. It has, after all, been 11 years given a initial film.

Pixar Creative Director Jay Ward

To tell a story, penned by Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, and Mike Rich, a final of whom was obliged for Sean Connery’s exclamation of a dubious, imperishable line, “You a male now, Dawg!” in 2000’s Finding Forrester, Pixar once again delved low into a good of research, ably guided by artistic executive and longtime hot-rodder Jay Ward. For additional stock-car cred, Pixar brought in Ray Evernham, former NASCAR organisation arch and organisation owner, as a consultant.

And if a finish outcome looks effortless—and it does—it’s down to a whole lot of tough work. Ward notes, “The flawlessness is super, super critical to us, and a geeky sum we put in, we put in since we adore them ourselves. But also since we wish a film to feel genuine and be real. You can make a lot of things up—and we watch a lot of films like that—but they also feel some-more like a feign film.”

Junior Johnson, Yes!

Cars 3

Cars 3 Junior “Midnight” Moon, uttered by Junior Johnson himself.

It doesn’t get most some-more authentic than Junior Johnson, and Evernham and Ward were clearly vehement to collect a mind of a moonshine-runner-turned-racer, one of a final vital links to stock-car racing’s hardscrabble origins. The 85-year-old NASCAR fable lends his voice to Junior “Midnight” Moon, a 1940 Ford formed on one of Johnson’s early batch cars. Evernham told us a rebellious story about Johnson from his possess modified-racing girl that we concluded not to publish, nonetheless he did share this classical bon mot from Junior, dispensed while a aged male was training Evernham how to lift a bootlegger’s spin in a ’40 Ford: “You gotta be prepared and know that a object don’t gleam on a same dog’s donkey each day.”

“Junior’s wisdom,” explains Evernham, “was a lot like Smokey [Yunick]’s. No grave education, nonetheless being lifted around automatic things and carrying to figure out how to make that work for we and survive in a universe where there was a lot of things going on. we consider one of a things Junior was unequivocally good during was gripping a tip for a unequivocally prolonged time, since he came adult in a universe where we usually had to keep your mouth close and get a office done.”

Ward records that Johnson done certain to lay out a resources of his 1956 moonshining bust: “I got arrested, nonetheless they never held me.”

“He done it really clear,” a artistic executive explains. “ ‘They never held me; they never pulled me over and held me.’” The shine-running racer was arrested when his father sent him to go check on a still that law-enforcement had staked out. Johnson was after pardoned by nothing other than Ronald Wilson Reagan, since how could one presumably keep the Last American Hero from casting a vote?

CARS 3

CARS 3 River Scott, Junior “Midnight” Moon, Smokey, Louise “Barnstormer” Nash, and Lightning McQueen.

Junior’s seductiveness in aircraft tools also struck Ward, expected due to a parallels with postwar West Coast hot-rodding. Lakes racers would go out and bravery sturdy, lightweight tools from over-abundance troops aircraft relegated to boneyards. Back east, Johnson was doing a same thing. “He was one of a initial guys to put in a harness-style seatbelt, since he’d seen it in an aeroplane and thought, ‘Well, that’ll keep me from smackin’ my face into a dash.’ ” Ward said. “For a really elementary nation boy, he was really forward-thinking and practical a lot of that things to his cars, since a rulebook didn’t contend he couldn’t do it.”

Johnson’s coming arrives during McQueen’s postwreck tour of self-discovery, when he, his reliable transporter Mack (John Ratzenberger), and tutor Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) breeze adult low in a heart of ancestral stock-car nation in hunt of Smokey (Chris Cooper), Doc Hudson’s aged organisation chief. The setup, with Mack trundling by beautifully rendered American landscapes, is adequate to fill a heart of anyone who has undertaken a cross-country highway outing usually for a consequence of doing it, while a payoff is adequate to throttle adult anybody who cares one bit about a racers who tore adult bullrings and beaches in a routine of forging both motorsport fable and arcana. If you’ve ever done a eventuality to Le Mans, a Bonneville Salt Flats, Daytona, or Indianapolis usually to be there—regardless of either a motorsport eventuality is happening—it feels like scarcely astray romantic manipulation.

Development Woes

Sometimes, tough existence requires a bit of artistic permit in office of such payoffs. You might remember that a organisation of a mean lemon cars in Cars 2 were badged as “Hugos” rather than Yugos. The feign out was innate of necessity, as Pixar’s organisation couldn’t lane down who indeed owned a trademark. Ward remembers conversations with Serbian contacts that went something like, “Was sole to this guy, who sole to this guy. Don’t know who owns!”

“Hudson,” he goes on to note, “was easy since it went to AMC, that went to Chrysler, that went to Mercedes. So we could follow that trail. We went to Mercedes-Benz and said, ‘We wanna make a film where we underline a Hudson Hornet,’ and they’re going, “Vat’s zis Hudson Hornet? Ve’ve nefer listened of zis?” The Germans relented, extenuation Paul Newman’s final feature-film purpose a visible form: Doc Hudson.

Cars 3

Cars 3 Not Mustang Sally, Sally Carrera.

Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt), however, wasn’t a impression satisfied immediately. Initially, a Pixar organisation went for a easy oldies-radio reference, sketch McQueen’s adore seductiveness as a Ford Mustang. “The problem” Ward points out, “is a Mustang has a large grille in a front and it looks like a mustache. People said, ‘Why’d we collect a 911?’ The engine’s in a back! There’s no grille in a front, so you’ve got this nice, smooth, turn face, and that worked good for Sally.”

Some characters, however, breeze adult on a cutting-room building entirely, notwithstanding a passions of those involved. Ward, nonetheless he’s too common to acknowledge it, was one of a heading lights of a 1990s normal rodding movement, cofounding a famed low-budget, traditionally disposed Billetproof rod-and-custom uncover and following that adult by running the glorious Asphalt Invitational. A deuce three-window would naturally be right adult his grease-spotted alley. And in a initial film, one was proposed: Josephine. “She started out as a stock, fendered ’32 Ford,” Ward remembers, “and Ramone (Cheech Marin) pulls a fenders off and she turns into a highboy and races opposite McQueen in an early chronicle of a film.” In a use of a story, however, Josephine was clipped from a picture. “I’d love,” he says, “to have Josephine come back.”

Storytelling as a Vehicle for Preservation

One of a some-more constrained things about both Cars and Cars 3 is that, notwithstanding their roots in a really American automotive cultures of stock-car racing and Route 66, a characters and automobiles enclosed illustrate a adore of tellurian vehicular passion. Ward doesn’t brawl a star-spangled roots of Cars but points out that a sell goes both ways: The movie engendered a adore for classical Americana in people all over a world. “No other nation in a universe cares about Route 66 or NASCAR, you’d think.” He goes on, “And nonetheless that film worked for everybody globally because during a finish of a day, it’s a constrained story. If we bond with those characters, you’re going to bond with a film, regardless of what a backdrop is.

“Ironically, when we done a initial Cars film, a usually people going down Route 66 were Germans on Harleys. After that film, a businesses on Route 66 had been reinvigorated. These kids tell their parents, ‘I wanna go find Radiator Springs!’ I’ve been behind down Route 66 and people have said, ‘Thank we for creation this movie. You told people that we’re still here, we’re still alive.’

“I wish and urge a same thing happens for this film. If a man like Junior Johnson says, ‘This child asked for my designation who otherwise would’ve never famous who we was,’ afterwards we did the office right.”
