10 Best of the LA Auto Show

Cars, trucks, crossover and concepts worth a second look.

by on Dec.03, 2018

The long-awaited Jeep Gladiator pickup made for one of the splashiest debuts at the LA Auto Show.

We’ve been to some dud auto shows over the last year. The Paris Motor Show, which kicked off the 2019 model-year, couldn’t even fill up a half day on the media calendar, and the Detroit Auto Show didn’t stretch much further. But this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show delivered some sweet surprises with its mix of cars, trucks, crossovers and concepts.

As we’ve come to expect from the Tinseltown extravaganza, there were plenty of green machines making their first appearance at the Los Angeles Convention Center, but these weren’t the sort of slow and stodgy sedans and quirky hatchbacks of years past, covering a broad swath of territory including electrified SUVs, pickups and sports cars. And there were plenty of promising products that fell into more conventional categories.

Here’s an alphabetical look at 10 of our favorite debuts at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show:

Rivian Shows Off Electric Pickup Before L.A. Show

Michigan-based EV maker's truck runs 0-to-60 in just three seconds.

by on Nov.27, 2018

The Rivian R1T pickup is designed to go anywhere, providing utility and functionality with plenty of power.

Rivian, a fledgling electric vehicle builder, is taking aim at both traditional rivals and new companies invading the automotive business with a battery-electric pickup truck capable of wading streams and climbing rocky hills with a unique blend of new technology and some traditional automotive engineering.

“We’re launching Rivian with two vehicles that reimagine the pickup and SUV segments,” said Rivian Founder and CEO RJ Scaringe. “I started Rivian to deliver products that the world didn’t already have – to redefine expectations through the application of technology and innovation.”

Product News!

He started with “a clean sheet,” spending years developing the technology to deliver the ideal vehicle for active customers. Scaringe was after a vehicle that delivered top-flight driving dynamics on-road or off, but could also function as a regular vehicle – meaning “being capable of driving long distances on a single charge.” (more…)

Audi Teases New e-Tron Ahead of LA Launch

Performance model will share underpinnings with new Porsche Taycan.

by on Nov.26, 2018

Audi is teasing its second electric vehicle before the first has even come to market. The new e-tron GT will debut at the L.A. Auto Show later this week.

Audi hasn’t even delivered its first all-electric model to showrooms yet, but the automaker is already teasing a second battery-car that will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this week.

These intentionally blurry images are meant to give us a hint of what the e-tron GT will look like and, if you squint just a little you might get a sense of déjà vu. Remove the four-ring Audi logo and you might notice the GT has a lot in common with the new Porsche Taycan that also will hit the market next year. Both, it turns out, share the same basic platform.

Product News!

Officially, what Audi will reveal in L.A. is a prototype, but don’t let that fool you. With relatively modest changes, what you see is what you will soon get, the second of three all-electric models that will appear in quick succession from the Volkswagen Group’s biggest luxury brand. (more…)

Range Rover Redux – 2nd Gen Evoque Breaks Cover

New platform, more technology for smallest Range Rover.

by on Nov.23, 2018

The 2019 Range Rover Evoque made a splashy debut in Britain on Thursday night.

At first glance, you might not recognize the compact ute has gotten a nearly complete makeover, but there have been plenty of significant changes made to the 2019 Range Rover Evoque, more than 90% of what you’d find under the skin of the compact SUV being all new.

First launched in 2010 as a 2011 model, the Evoque quickly became the most popular model in Land Rover history and, even as the first-generation ute approached the end of its run it has remained quite popular. But, in an increasingly crowded market, the British sibling of Jaguar is taking no chances.

Product News!

“When Range Rover Evoque made its debut back in 2010, it transformed the world of compact SUVs and the new model is set to continue that remarkable journey,” declared design director Gerry McGovern, at a splashy British unveiling on Thursday evening. “This characterful vehicle combines refinement and fun to create that all important emotional reaction that will turn heads and make people smile.”

Fun brand also showing off four new customized models.

by on Nov.20, 2018

The new Mini John Cooper Works Knights Edition will make its debut at the L.A. Auto Show.

With the recent focus on “hot hatches,” it would be fair to assume that ever-popular Mini would be among the leaders in the segment. Not only is it fair, but also it’s correct with the brand’s John Cooper Works edition vehicles.

At this year’s Los Angeles International Auto Show next week, Mini’s going to roll out a series of new vehicles looking to generate some excitement, especially within the “need for speed” crowd.

In an SUV Market, Toyota Intent on Boosting Demand for All-New 2020 Corolla

Compact sedan gets new look, broad range of new, standard features.

by on Nov.16, 2018

Brand boss Jack Hollis introduced the 12th-generation, 2020 Toyota Corolla.

It may be an SUV-crazed market, but Toyota is not going to cede ground in the compact sedan market without a fight, or so brand boss Jack Hollis declared during the unveiling of the all-new, 2020 Corolla Thursday night.

It’s no surprise that Toyota is intent on proving its prowess with the new sedan. Over the past half century, Corolla has been one of the cars instrumental in building the Japanese automaker’s reputation for quality, reliability and durability. But with other manufacturers, like Korea’s Hyundai and Kia, breathing down its neck, Toyota will have to show it can deliver more than the classic, plain vanilla design, Corolla has also long been known for.

Product News!

It hinted at a more expressive direction earlier this year with the launch of a new, and decidedly more sporty , Corolla Hatchback. Now, the mainstay sedan gets a complete makeover. And it is not only more stylish, but boasts more power and lots more features, including the latest version of the Toyota Safety Sense package which now will be standard on all Corolla grades. Key competitors, such as Honda, have chosen not to package these advanced driver assistance systems on many of their base models.
