Subaru took the wraps of off the new 2015 WRX sports sedan at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.

Nissan adds a little RS to the Juke NISMO for 2014 - w/video

Let's get this out of the way. I've always liked the Nissan black. So you know I'm gonna love the 2014 Juke NISMO RS. What's not to like about a funky compact crossover in Sapphire Black with red accents, great 18-inch alloy wheels, slightly lowered stance, suspension upgrades, a body kit, spoiler, and Recaro seats covered in Alcantara. Yeah, it comes in Brilliant Silver and Pearl White as well, but when you can have the Sapphire Black...Then you add to that a 1.6-liter DOHC aluminum-alloy Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) turbocharged engine that makes 215 hp and 210 lb.-ft. of torque with the six-speed manual and 211 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque with the CVT (continuously-variable transmission) and all-wheel drive. Inside the Juke NISMO RS, the Recaro "sportster-style" seats are red leather with black alcantara inserts, the dash features carbon-fiber-look accents, and all fabrics feature red contrast stitching. Outside, the Juke NISMO RS features the body kit with red pinstripe accents, the 10-spoke diamond cut wheels, privacy glass, smoked lighting lenses, piano black "B" pillars, revised front fascia with LED lights replacing the foglamps, and special NISMO RS badges. The Juke NISMO RS comes fully-equipped but the Navigation Package (NissanConnect™ with Navigation system with 5.8-inch touch-screen, 3D-effect map views, Voice Recognition and NavTraffic capability [SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately]; NissanConnect™ Apps; Rockford Fosgate ecoPUNCH™ audio system; USB interface [iPod® compatible]; and Rear-View Monitor) as the only option. Now Jukes come in five flavors, S, SV, SL, NISMO, and NISMO RS from mildish to wild. The 2014 Juke NISMO RS will be available early in 2014. Check with your dealer for availability info.

BMW's all-new 4-Series goes topless in LA - w/video

When the 4Series was introduced to replace the 3 Series Coupe, you knew it was ajust a matter of time before the 4 Series would expand from the coupe to add a convertible...and it's a retractable hardtop one at that. Okay, the 3 Series Convertible also had a hard roof, but the new 4 Series cabrio's roof has been updated with sleeker looks and advanced soundproofing with its “noise-absorbing” headliner (pic after the jump). But let's be honest, we all know what we are talking about here. This is the latest generation of BMW open-air motoring and the new 4 Series is stunning in its look and amazing in its ability to provide miles and miles of smiles. The new 4 Series Convertible will come in three flavors, Sport Line, Modern Line and Luxury Line, with an M Sport package (Wheels, body kit, etc.) that can be added to any 4 Series. According to the press info, there will be three engines available in the new 4 Series Convertible, the four-cylinder engine (approx 240 hp) in the 428i, the 3.0-liter six (306 hp) in the 435i, and a new four-cylinder diesel engine (184 hp) in the 420d that won't be real quick, but should return excellent fuel economy. I guess you can have it all. There is no word when the diesel will be available though. With the new 4 Series Convertible you get your choice of luxury, sport, open-air motoring, or fuel efficienct or any combination thereof depending on your needs and wallet. Prices haven't been announced but expect a jump up from the 3 Series droptop. For lots of info, check out the 3 press releases (two are similar), 8 pics (click for a closer look, and a short video after the jump.  Enjoy, the wait is almost over...

2014 SRT Viper GTS just got more exclusive with Anodized Carbon Special Edition

The once Dodge Viper has gone from an almost kit car-esque boy-racer mobile to a full fledged supercar that has nothing to apologize for. The styling has matured but is easily recognized as a Viper. The interior is now a comfortable place to be instead of the place where you hold on. The (now) SRT Viper has matured and is more sophisticated than ever before. The things that attracted Viper loyalists to the car are still here like the thunderingly powerful V10 engine, unique styling, two seats, and blinding speed. It is amazing that this latest generation Viper was produced at all what with the drama that Detroit has faced in recent years. Maybe Fiat ownership has been good for Chrysler. But this Viper, the GTS Anodized Carbon Special Edition, is the one to lust for. Only 50 Viper GTSes will be produced...ever. Collectors? Start with the Viper GTS with goodies like the 8.4-liter, V-10 overhead-valve engine (640 hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque), enhanced suspension, and more. Add to that the ultra-cool new metallic matte exterior color (a Chrysler first) and Black Vapor Chrome five-spoke “Rattler” wheels, Gloss Black GTS badge, Satin Black exhaust bezel, Anodized Carbon fuel filler door, orange brake calipers, and carbon fiber brake ducts. Interior additions include an Alcantara wrapped headliner, door bolsters and knee blockers; orange accent stitching on the Nappa leather wrapped door trim, center console, instrument panel, and on the Nappa leather and Alcantara seats; orange accents added to the door panel and instrument panel; and carbon-fiber accents added to the center stack, door panels and steering wheel. And we can't forget the special carbon GTS badges. Stunning and rare. Chances are if you haven't placed your order, it's too late but you can check with your SRT retailer assuming you've got the bucks. But then if you have to ask...

Ford Edge Concept previews next production vehicle's design - w/video

It's Auto Show time and many automakers roll out the almost ready production vehicles as "concepts." What we have here is basically the new Ford Edge, here called the Edge Concept. To be fair, these concepts allow carmakers to gauge public opinion and to make last minute adjustments if necessary. The Edge Concept is a nice upgrade of the current CUV. When you take a closer look at the pics (click on them for a closer look) there us little on display that couldn't see production. Even the interior ambient lighting is showing up on production vehicles today. Maybe Ford could offer the lighting as an option due to the Edge's price point. I could see this vehicle on the road today. Please. I really like this update and lets hope Ford keeps the good stuff. And there is a lot of stuff on this vehicle. Like a self-parking system. Yup, this car will park itself. I've seen other automaker's videos showing their car pulling up to a spot in a parking lot and the car selecting and pulling into a parking spot. Cool stuff, but the day is right around the corner when an automaker is sued due to all this "helpful" technology. I can hear it now, "I mean you said it would stop itself! You said it could park with no problem, so I let it and the car just..." Look for the production version of the Edge Concept either at the Detroit or New York Auto Show early next year. I wonder what the Sport model will look like. For more info, check out the press release, pics, and video after the jump.

Chevrolet re-enters the mid-size truck market with the 2015 Colorado - w/video

When Ford dropped the Ranger and GM let the Colorado and Canyon out to pasture, mid-size truck buyers had only one new vehicle to consider, the Toyota Tacoma. GM is getting back in the fight with the new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado (expect a GMC model soon). The Colorado will be available as a four-door cab model in WT, LT and Z71 (shown) trim levels in 2WD or 4WD. Available engines include the standard 2.5L I-4 and a 3.6L V-6. A proven Duramax 2.8L I-4 turbodiesel already offered in global markets will be made available in US Colorados during the second year of production. Expect equipment and features that are new to the segment like rear-view cameras, OnStar and MyLink infotainment, navigation, and more. The look is a nice update and is one of the better-looking trucks available today. Chevy should sell bunches of them. Expect very competitive tow and haul ratings. For more info, check out the press release, pics and video after the jump. The 2015 Chevy Colorado will be available next year. More info to come... Maybe Ford will rethink bringing the global Ranger to the US when Colorado sales take off.

Jaguar F-Type Coupé makes Los Angeles Auto Show debut - w/video - Update

You knew it was coming, it was just a matter of time. After the F-Type convertible was introduced, the design was ripe for a coupe version and here it is just in time for the LA Auto Show...and the Tokyo Show and... Anyway, It's a looker and the engine line-up is different with the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 (340 hp - F-Type, 380 hp F-Type S) for starters all the way up to the top-of-the-line F-Type R's 550 hp 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine. Every F-TYPE Coupé model uses Jaguar's eight-speed close-ratio Quickshift transmission which is tuned for sporting performance, with full manual control from the central SportShift selector or steering wheel-mounted paddles. Suspension calibrations and hardware are based on the model selected. Expect features and equipment on par with the convertible, although the Coupe only F-Type R is the high performance model in the line up. Prices will be announced closer to the F-Type Coupe's on sale date, although pricing is expected to be very competitive. More to come. For lots of info, check out the two press releases, additional pics, and the launch film after the jump.

Update - Pricing has been announced for the new Coupe with prices starting at $68,895 for the F-Type and soaring up to $99,895 for the F-Type R which includes destination, but not taxes, license, fees, or options. Prices are about $4,000 less than the F-Type Convertible.

New 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition aims for retro chic

To mark the 57th Anniversary of the "Nuova Cinguecento" (New 500), Fiat is introducing the 2014 500 "1957 Edition" 500. The 1957 500 features retro design touches like historic Fiat badging and the three paint choices: Bianco (white), or for a two-tone look, Verde Chiaro (light green) or exclusive Celeste (celestial blue) paired with a Bianco painted roof and mirror caps. Inside the retro look continues with the Avorio (ivory) interior environment contrasted by premium Marrone (brown) leather seats. The 1957 500 is based on the 500 Lounge model and comes with the 1.4-liter MultiAir engine and a five-speed manual transmission with a six-speed automatic optional. While it isn't my thang, this retro limited-production 500 special edition could find a few US homes. If you like what you see, the 500 1957 Edition will be at your local Fiat Studio in the Spring, but dealers will begin taking orders after the first of the year. Will there be a cabrio version like the original? Dunno, but there should be...

Nissan shows new 2015 GT-R ahead of Tokyo Show

Nissan's GT-R has always seemed to be a boy racer/video gamer kind of supercar. In fact, the controls could be confusing to the uninitiated. For 2015, Nissan has updated their flagship supercar to broaden the car's appeal. Performance remains blistering from the 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine (545 hp) mated to an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission that puts that power to the road through the GT-R's all-wheel drive chassis with an adjustable suspension setup. But Nissan has updated the GT-R for '15 with a smoother suspension calibration and more premium materials that will better match the car's premium status and price. Exterior lighting is now handled mostly by LEDs with a new Adaptive Front lighting System that adjusts the car's headlights based on speed and direction. Braking is now more linear and responsive. The interior leathers and materials are richer and provide a more upscale experience as most would expect of a supercar. There is even a new Gold Flake Red Pearl color (shown) that has real gold flakes in the paint. All of these changes make the car seem more sophisticated and should help Nissan put More GT-Rs in the hands of performance-car buyers. For more info, check out the press release after the jump. I have also included the release for the new GT-R NISMO Racer for those that have an interest...

Subaru set to unveil new 2015 Legacy Concept at LA Auto Show

Subaru is set to premiere the 2015 Legacy Concept (their words) at the LA Auto Show that is a thinly veiled look at the next Legacy. Add door handles, smaller wheels, and less aggressive front and rear lower valances and you should just about have it. The concept's design is the latest in the four-door coupe idiom and the new gront grille will be showing up on future Subies. The styling is a little derivative with the side view (pic after the jump) looking almost like an Accord Coupe and the new front fascia shares a similar visage with the upcoming Hyundai Genesis. None of those are necessarily bad things and the new Legacy should be a looker, especially since Subaru manages to take designs from the concept stage to the road with fewer changes than most manufacturers. No info was given about the drivetrain, but then who cares since the real thing is right around the corner. More to come...

All new Mini Cooper hardtop debuts around the world - w/video

If you live in a major US city, a new Mini is big news (especially here in LA, one of Mini's largest US markets). While the design is evolutionary, there are some revolutionary things happening under the metal. Inside, the Mini quirkiness has pretty much been laid to rest. The speedometer and other major gauges are now in front of the driver. The center section takes over infotainment and other functions. The window toggle switches are now integrated into the door armrests. Under the hood (bonnet) are two new engines, both with twin turbocharging that are mated to either the standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmissions. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder unit that delivers 134 hp and 162 ft-lbs of torque. The Cooper S engine is a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops 189 hp and 207 ft-lbs of torque. Fuel economy is up with both engines, but official numbers have not been set. The new Mini is roomier with new features like heads-up display, a rear-view camera, LED lighting, Mini Connect (now for Android phones), System Performance Control (Cooper S), an adjustable suspension system, Comfort Access, Park Distance Control, roof rails, and lots more either as standard (depending on model) or as an option. Since the Mini is considered a premium compact, you can spend as many dollars as you choose. In the beginning, the Hardtop Cooper and Cooper S will be available, but expect a new John Cooper Works version shortly along with a new convertible. There is even a rumor of a new four-door wagon based on the hardtop body that calls to mind the old Mini Traveler (possible name?). The new Mini Cooper and Cooper S hardtop is a nice update of the popular out-going model. Get thee to thou Mini dealer post haste if you want to be one of the first with the latest Mini. For lots of additional information, check out the 3 press releases, 9 additional pics (click for a closer look), and a video (at the end) after the jump. Enjoy!

New 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition debuts at the LA Auto Show

It wouldn't be a new week without a new special edition Jeep Wrangler and this one isn't any different. Ahead of its LA Auto Show debut, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition (WWE) is meant to be a throwback to Jeeps of days gone by, but with modern hardware. You start with a Wrangler Sport in any color (although I like the dark silver one in the pics), click off the Willys Wheeler Edition box on the options sheet and you get a Wrangler with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (285 horsepower, 260 ft.-lbs. or torque) mated to the standard six-speed manual or an available five-speed automatic transmission. Also standard is the Jeep Command-Trac 4x4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio; a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential and 3.73 gears; BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain LT255/75R17 tires with high-gloss black alloys; rock rails; the Sunrider soft top and deep-tint sunscreen rear windows; and a new Jeep Trail-Rated Kit that includes a D-Ring, tow strap, and gloves in a Jeep-branded bag. Other goodies include a gloss black grille and inserts on the bumpers, and “Willys” hood decals. Willys Wheeler Editions feature the Connectivity Group with SiriusXM satellite radio, and Sport S-based models have the Power Convenience Group and Premium Tire Pressure Monitoring System as standard. Jeep Wrangler’s iconic half doors are an option. Starting early next year, you can get your rugged Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition (say that ten times fast) for starting bucks of $25,795 for two-door models and $29,595 for Unlimited (four-door) models plus taxes, license, fees, destination, and options. You'll have to ask your dealer about hard tops. For more info, check out the release and pics (including a retro Jeep pic) after the jump.

Chevrolet debuts Silverado Cheyenne Concept

Chevrolet recently debuted the Silverado Cheyenne Concept at the 2013 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association) show in Las Vegas. The Cheyenne name links back to a Chevy truck trim level that was introduced in 1971. But the concept seen here is sort of Chevy's answer to the upcoming Ford F-150 Tremor sport truck. As you may remember, the Ford Tremor sport truck is going into production early next year and features Ford's EcoBoost V6 (365 hp) with a six-speed automatic housed in the two-bucket-seat cabin with a short pickup bed in the back. The Chevrolet Cheyenne features Chevy's 6.2-liter V8 (420 hp) mated to a six-speed automatic with a short bed and two-seat cab. Both trucks feature blacked out trim and other accents with big wheels. The Cheyenne borrows heavily from the Camaro parts bin with Brembo brakes, charcoal-painted 19-inch Camaro Z/28 aluminum wheels, Recaro sport seats, and more. While the Cheyenne has not been approved for production, the press release reads like a production vehicle intro. If the Tremor is a hit, expect the Cheyenne to be fast-tracked. The Silverado Cheyenne is a good-looking sport truck that should be able to fit in the garages of many happy homes. If you like what you see, let Chevy know. For more info, check out the press release after the jump. This is one of my favorite vehicles from this year's SEMA show.

Chrysler's 300 full-size sedan is one of the more popular rear-wheel drive conveyances on the US market and the sporty S model has received some updates for 2014. Exterior styling updates include a more "blacked-out" look with black window surrounds, headlight and taillight bezels, and a black chrome grille.

Mercedes-Benz shows latest Vision Gran Turismo supercar concept

Mercedes-Benz has just released the info and pics on their latest concept supercar, the Vision Gran Turismo. The Vision GT was developed for the latest version of the PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 6 and was created in the flesh with an AMG V8 (525 hp) and an ultra lightweight body and chassis for blistering speed. The Vision GT was the centerpiece for the opening of the new Mercedes‑Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, California. The Vision GT uses Mercedes' latest styling cues with an elongated shape that should translate well to the virtual world. Will we see the Vision GT on the road? Probably not but it should make the Auto Show rounds and with some adjustments, it would make a nice replacement for the SLS AMG supercar that is going out of production. The Vision GT is a stunner and has a look that says "get out of my way." For more info, check out the press release and additional pics after the jump. Virtual reality never looked so good...

Ford unveils new 2014 Fiesta with top EPA non-hybrid gas mpg rating - w/video

Ford is debuting its latest EcoBoost engine in the updated 2014 Fiesta, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder. Yes Monica, three cylinders. The new three cylinder EcoBoost has already won raves and awards (see release) in other parts of the world where it has debuted and delivers power on par with the standard four-cylinder engine but with better fuel economy. The EcoBoost 1.0-liter makes 120 hp (SAE-certified at 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft. of torque) and features an overboost function on the turbocharger that allows it to make more than 145 lb-ft. for up to 15 seconds. But this new engine also allows the new Fiesta to achieve an EPA fuel-economy rating of 32 mpg city, 45 mpg highway and 37 mpg combined. The '14 Fiesta EcoBoost's highway number is currently the top-rated non-hybrid, gas (not diesel) vehicle and does, in fact, beat some diesels. Of course as we've discussed before, your mileage will vary depending on the amount of lead in your right foot. The new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will expand to other Ford models in the near future, but we should only see the engine in the Focus in the US. For more info and a video, check out the release after the jump.

2015 Lincoln MKC compact premium utility vehicle sneaks out before LA debut - w/video

Lincoln will officially introduce the production version of the new 2015 MKC Premium Utility Vehicle at the LA Auto Show. The compact crossover is based on the Escape (or Kuga in Europe) and features higher levels of luxury, style, technology, and a new Ecoboost engine. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost four (240 hp, 270 lb.-ft. of torque) is standard, but a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine will be optional (275hp, 300 lb.-ft. of torque) for those that need more go. No transmission has been disclosed, but you can expect at least the six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive and an adjustable suspension are optional. Expect MyLincolnTouch infotainment and an available THXII-Certified premium audio system. Options include (in packages or as stand-a-lone options) blind-spot warning, glass Vista Roof, Bridge of Weir leather, real wood trim, 19-inch wheels, the previously mentioned Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system (includes Continuously Controlled Damping), and more. In other words, like most luxury/premium vehicles, you can spend lots of bucks. The Approach Detection System (see video) is a nice option that lights up the vehicle in all the right places and even offers up a "welcome mat" of light for night-time vehicle entry. The hands-free power liftgate is also available. Pricing has not been announced, but expect a starting price in the $30s with the first cars arriving at your local Lincoln dealer in the summer. For more info and videos, check out the press release after the jump. This could be a big one for Lincoln and the production version is fairly close to the Concept (see link below).
