From The Car Connection:
The 2015 Kia Rio is at least competitive among small cars if not the class leader, offering attractive design, plenty of features, and decent value.
The BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class—or ML—are now old rivals. Rather than taking the rugged, Safari-chic route like the Range Rover, or vying against the brawny, tough-as-nails persona of the Land Cruiser or the corresponding Lexus LX, these models appeared on the market at around the same time and took the middle road.
In two separate rulings -- or rather, non-rulings -- the Supreme Court of the United States had dealt smackdowns to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Ford Motor Company.
2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
Only a month after blowing us away with its all-new, sixth-generation Camaro, Chevrolet has now taken the wraps off the car’s convertible variant which like the coupe will be introduced for the 2016 model year. The new Camaro Convertible sticks with a conventional folding soft-top but there are a number of innovations not normally found in the segment.
Alfa Romeo is set to reveal an all-new model later today: the long-awaited successor to the 159 small sedan and wagon, both of which bowed out of the market in 2011. The reveal is set to coincide with the reopening of the official Alfa Romeo museum near Milan, Italy, which has been closed since 2012, but the first shots of the car have already surfaced.
Last week, we broke the news that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is coming. Complete with an available 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine and all-wheel drive, it's sure to be bonkers. But if you want a supercharged Jeep that'll keep going when the pavement ends, you'll still need to take matters into your own hands.
Chevrolet Bolt Concept - 2015 Detroit Auto Show live photos
The Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car will be built at General Motors' Orion Assembly plant, but it may not be the only new model rolling out of the plant over the next few years. Located about 30 miles north of Detroit, the plant will receive an investment of $245 million and add 300 new jobs, GM announced yesterday.
The redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will be unveiled later today, but it seems that the previous-generation model will stick around as well. Automakers occasionally keep multiple generations of the same model on sale simultaneously, and that's apparently what Chevy will do with the Cruze.
About four and a half years after the first 2011 Nissan Leaf electric car was delivered, Nissan and its French partner Renault have reached a significant milestone. Together, the two carmakers have sold more than 250,000 electric cars globally.
