Ford unveiled a Fiesta Van and it's adorable

Filed under: Ford,Hatchback,Minivan/Van,Commercial Vehicles

There are many ways in which Europe and America are very different, and apparently one of those differences is what constitutes a van. In America, our commercial vans don't really get any smaller than a Ford Transit Connect or a Nissan NV200. But in Europe, Ford will now sell you a Fiesta Van. It pretty much constitutes a three-door Fiesta with blank panels where the rear windows would be.

Filed under: Design/Style,Spy Photos,Jeep,Truck,Off-Road

The Jeep Scrambler — the long-awaited truck variant of the Jeep Wrangler — has been in development for a long, long time. We've seen spy shots of various prototypes for years now. Even with the camouflage, it's not difficult to tell what's hiding underneath. We have a new batch here, and while there isn't really anything new on the outside, these do give us a good look at the new Jeep's interior. Good news: It looks like the Scrambler will get the Wrangler's removable roof panels.

Next Ford Focus ST to get 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder from Focus RS

24 Apr 2018 at 12:30pm

Filed under: Ford,Hatchback,Future,Performance

The third rumored engine for the 2020 Ford Focus ST makes perhaps the most sense yet: Autocar reports Ford's warm hatch will use a reworked version of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder from the Ford Focus RS, detuned to 250 horsepower. A year ago, Autocar paired the ST with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder; a month ago, the site Ford Trend referenced a report about upping the current 2.0-liter EcoBoost from 252 horsepower to 280 or 290 hp; and last week, AutoGuide resurrected the report about the 1

It's official, Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali confirmed to Top Gear magazine that the next-generation Aventador and Huracán will get plug-in hybrid powertrains. Autocar reported last October that the next Huracán would get "next-generation" batteries to aid its naturally aspirated V10 when it debuts around 2022. The fate of the Aventador S's successor, however, was unclear beyond the certainty of it featuring a mid-mounted V12. Now we know it will get a naturally aspirated V12

Shift list: All the new cars you can buy with a manual transmission

Filed under: Car Buying

The overarching trend of the past few years has been that the manual transmission is on the way out. People like automatics, they can be faster than manually shifting, and they're frequently better at saving fuel. But there's still a sizable enough minority of manual fans and buyers that automakers continue to offer a manual in nooks and crannies of the automotive market. And you might be surprised at some of the offerings. We certainly were, so we thought we'd compile a list of cars with an ava

Jaguar may kill supercharged V6 to make way for inline-six

Filed under: Jaguar,Convertible,Coupe,Crossover,Sedan,SUV,Future,Luxury

This could be the last year to score a Jaguar with the carmaker's 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Autocar reports that Jaguar deep-sixed the XE S and XF S in the UK due to poor sales and difficulty coping with European emissions regulation changes taking place this year. The mag expects the XJ and F-Pace to lose the V6, too, but suspects the F-Type might retain the engine. It's possible, however, the bent-six with up to 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque might finally be retiring for a reaso

2019 Lamborghini Urus First Drive Review: The prodigal son of Rambo Lambo

If you're fascinated by the absolutely bonkers, 1980s-era Lamborghini LM002 like we are, it's hard not to hope the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus is a proper sequel to the late, great, notorious sport 'ute. The new silhouette is far friendlier than the '80s-era jumble of trapezoidal planes and, more crucially, this time around motivation comes from a much more powerful twin-turbo V8, not a massive V12 as it was the wild, Countach-powered LM. So where does the Urus sit in the supercar-on-stilts spectr

We've written about Volvo's interior concepts earlier, including different Lounge Consoles presented in 2015 and 2016 for the XC90 and S90, respectively. The idea with these is that a sumptuous Volvo interior is turned into something even more rarified, as the backseat passenger either wants to get some work done while on the move, or to just relax in a comfortable ambience. That basic idea has been honed again for this year's Beijing Auto Show, where Volvo debuts the S90 Ambience Concept.

If the 2019 Toyota Avalon isn't fit enough to survive, then the entire full-size sedan species is doomed to extinction. It's really simple as that, because as the new-and-improved replacement for a car that was already well-entrenched as the segment benchmark, it stands the best chance of coaxing customers away from an onslaught of SUVs and similarly priced smaller sedans with fancier badges. Perhaps it could even snag a few people not yet old enough to collect Social Security.

Cars and trucks are more expensive than ever before. In order to boost sales and help consumers afford new vehicles, automakers are offering long and long terms for auto loans. This past week, Bloomberg reports FCA's Ram Trucks division current offers the longest loans. Some currently stretch to 73 months. Jeep, Fiat and Chevy aren't far behind. Even more noteworthy is that we're likely soon see lenders moving from 73-month to 84-month loans. That's seven years worth of interest.
