Ram diesel scandal; 2017 Jeep Compass; BMW's electric milestone: What's New @ The Car Connection

November 18, 2016

Volkswagen may soon have company in the courtroom: Ram and Dodge Ram owners are suing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, claiming that nearly 500,000 of the company's diesel trucks fail to meet emissions standards.

When you're a kid, you look forward to the holidays: no tests, no homework, no getting up before you're ready, and depending on your family's traditions, you might even receive presents.

Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Homer created a makeup gun "for women who only have four-fifths of a second to get ready"? Well, if you're that pressed for time, Tesla's new software update will be an absolute godsend.

2017 Jeep Compass makes US debut at LA auto show

Jeep in September gave us our first look at its 2017 Compass, the replacement for both the existing Compass as well as the Patriot.

In 2014 we saw Audi introduce the R8 LMX special edition. The car featured laser lights for its high beams but was never offered in the United States.

Volkswagen has let its North American engineering team cook up something interesting for the 2016 Los Angeles auto show, on this week.

Almost exactly three years after the European launch of the i3 electric car in November 2013, BMW has reached a notable milestone in its electrification efforts.

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover is an entirely new design, Mazda says, although you might not see it at first glance.

Over the past few years, Mini models have been getting bigger, to point where most aren't particularly "mini" anymore.
