Lincoln MKX

If a bigger vehicle is a must but fuel consumption is still important then a vehicle like the Lincoln MKX may be ideal. Facelifted for the 2011 model year, the MKX sports a sizeable body, a powerful 305-horsepower V-6 and the latest MyLincoln touchscreen interface. Drive is sent to all four wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission with pseudo manual mode and together with the new engine the MKX will return a fuel economy of up to 25 mpg on the highway.

Cadillac XTS

When money is no object than Cadillac is working on something for you. A new flagship sedan designed to replace the STS and DTS models is brewing and due for release in early 2012. The car has been previewed by the all-new XTS Platinum Concept, a vehicle that emphasizes Cadillac's Platinum line of range-topping models while also reigniting interest in GM’s plug-in hybrid technology. Its powertrain consists of a 3.6-liter V-6 direct injection engine and pairs it with a plug-in hybrid system, allowing the vehicle to coast effortlessly along on electric power alone, while at higher speeds or when conditions demand it, such as brisk acceleration, a combination of engine power and electric power or engine power only propels the vehicle.

Chrysler-Badged Lancia Delta

We've known since Sergio Marchionne delivered the marathon press conference on the company's five-year plan that Lancia products would be coming to the U.S. rebadged as Chryslers, and today we got our first glimpse of the new face of badge engineering: the Chrysler Delta. Thinly veiled with a Chrysler-eque grille and badging, the Delta is essentially a straight copy of the Lancia model sold in Europe. While we don't know things like on-sale dates, safety homologation or prices, we can expect the Delta bring a more refined, sporty and useful--it's a hatchback--feel to the Chrysler lineup.
