What is happening? Ford bringing Focus based pickup to the US? What is happening? Ford bringing Focus based pickup to the US?

You read that right. Motor1 is reporting that Ford has been caught testing, albeit under heavy camo, a Focus based pickup that’s going to be built in Mexico and exported to Brazil and the US by ‘21. Its supposed to slot under the Ranger, be front or awd and be powered by 1.5 and 2.0 engines. They also report that they…

Forgotten Cars: First Gen Honda FCX Forgotten Cars: First Gen Honda FCX

With all the talk of of EV’s and alternative fuel vehicles, much has been said about the forebears of these cars. But you never hear much about the first gen Honda FCX. Most likley though this is because it only ever went to a few individuals/cities in the world.

Lexus is in no hurry to start a subscription program Lexus is in no hurry to start a subscription program

Subscription programs seem to be all the industry rage now. Mainly because these companies think that this will appeal to us Millennials. Personally, I think they are dumb marketing gimmicks putting niceties on a glorified lease with a marketable name. But that’s besides the point.

Looks like Cadillac's twin turbo V8 wont be wasted after all Looks like Cadillac's twin turbo V8 wont be wasted after all

After learning about the death of the CT6 along with the slew of other GM models, we were all wondering what was going to happen to the in house developed twin turbo 4.2 L V8. Developed specifically for the CT6-V it looked to bring some serious cred and performance back to Cadillac. Putting out 550 horses and 627…

For the few hundred people that care: the 2019 Kia K900 starts at $59,900 For the few hundred people that care: the 2019 Kia K900 starts at $59,900

I for one care. I love the K900 (and its Genesis G90 sibling). You’d have to be a fool, a badge whore or both not to see the massive value these things have, especially used.

Jaguar sales reportedly down Jaguar sales reportedly down

Following on the heels of the article this morning about the I-Pace making up 10% of Jaguar sales, The Driver is reporting that Jaguar sales in October were trash pretty much everywhere and that Land Rover is pretty much carrying the brand. They sold a record 621,000 cars globally last year with 114,000 of those being…

Cadillac quietly refreshed the CT6 and gave it a Sport model for '19. Cadillac quietly refreshed the CT6 and gave it a Sport model for '19.

I guess to get it in line with the coming CT6-V. It starts at $67,590. You can only get it with the twin turbo V6 and AWD. No 3.6 or 4 cylinder RWD here.

I want to buy a cheap luxury or sporty car. I want to buy a cheap luxury or sporty car.

At the beginning of the year. I’m looking to spend $3-$6 grand, and I think I’ve narrowed down my choices. They all range from another convertible, to to coupes to sedans to suv’s:

The 2019 BMW 8 Series starts at $111,900 The 2019 BMW 8 Series starts at $111,900

The build and price is live if you guys want to check it out. What’s essentially a sort of reskinned 6 Series so it can be a weird wagony thing, the 8 looks to cash in on the big luxury performance coupe occupied by competitors like the S Class coupe.

Remember the Kia Telluride? Here's how the production version looks uncovered Remember the Kia Telluride? Here's how the production version looks uncovered

And apparently they run around Dubai or whatever Middle Eastern country I’m assuming this is. These pics were taking from a Youtube video that was uploaded a month ago. I would post a link of the video, but I’m sure Kia is going to have it taken down soon.

A Hyundai Sonata N is coming. Apparently. A Hyundai Sonata N is coming. Apparently.

Take this with a medium grain of salt though: I was at the dealer getting my all too often oil changed, when I started roaming around the showroom floor as I was waiting. This is a brand new Hyundai dealership I’m in mind you. So far from the 4 or so visits I’ve been, its fantastic, from its cleanness to the staff to…

Genesis G70 price breakdown Genesis G70 price breakdown

Jalopnik didn’t do a good enough price break down for me a few weeks back when Genesis announced pricing for the much anticipated G70, so here’s the price and option break down. 

More Random auto news Jalopnik seems to have missed More Random auto news Jalopnik seems to have missed

Don’t hold your breath for a Kia N like performance brand: In a move that’s perplexing to me because of past statements on Kia being sporty, Hyundai not, Kia has decided not to have a performance brand in the same vein as Hyundai N. Motor1 reports that, after speaking to Autocar, development big wig Albert Biermann…

People are really clueless as to what car they drive People are really clueless as to what car they drive

Cars in general really. Its disturbing the amount of people that tell me “I don’t know anything about cars. All I know is how to drive them and that they need gas.” Whats more dumb though, is that people literally have no idea what they drive. The following is an actual list of cars, fictional names that people have…

The Edge got redesigned for 2019, but the big news is the new ST trim to satisfy peoples insatiable stupid crossover performance needs.

Cadillac betting big on CT4/CT5 as well as new models Cadillac betting big on CT4/CT5 as well as new models

Following up on this mornings Morning Shift, Motor1 is reporting that GM dumped $175 million into the Lansing Grand River plant for retooling for the 2 new models. The plant currently makes the CTS, ATS and Camaro. Originally I thought that the CT5 was going to be a consolidated model replacing both the CTS and ATS.…

The '18 Mustang has transmission problems The '18 Mustang has transmission problems

So its looking like 2018 Mustang owners have been having serious issues with the new 10 speed transmissions. Not simple issues either. Total failures at less than 10 thousand miles. Since the middle of last month I’ve counted about 150 different owners who have called in for tows on their 2018 Mustangs.

Forgotten Cars: Kia Borrego Forgotten Cars: Kia Borrego

You’d have to be dumb to introduce a big, thirsty full size SUV during an economic downturn right? Yes, but Kia did it anyway with the introduction of the Borrego (also known as the Mohave in other markets) at the 2008 NAIAS in Detroit.

2018 Hyundai Sonata update 2018 Hyundai Sonata update

As of this writing, I’ve accumulated 21,064 miles on the Sonata. And its been great. The car is pretty much flawless with me going to the dealer only for routine oil changes. (let me use this opportunity to say that Hyundai dealers are fantastic. They just built a new one in my city and everything from the design of…
