Less Polarizing Jeep Cherokee Set to Debut at NAIAS

Mid-cycle update adopts more classic Jeep face.

by on Dec.19, 2017

The Jeep Cherokee gets a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year, and it debuts at the Detroit Auto Show next month.

‘Tis the season for automakers to hand out gifts to loyal fans in the form of sneak previews of products coming to the North American International Auto Show next month. And among the more notorious teasers to cross our desk was one offering pics of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

The Cherokee nameplate has been around for more than four decades, though it was briefly renamed Liberty here in the U.S. When the nameplate was revived for the 2014 model-year it set heads spinning and tongues clacking due to the unusual design – especially the unusual, two-tier lighting.

News You Can Trust!

The 2019 edition may be a mid-cycle update but it gets more than just the usual minor tweaks, at least based on what these images reveal. Among other things, that includes more traditional headlamps framing the classic, keystone-style Jeep seven-slat grille. (more…)

Honda Offers Some Insight

Japanese automaker promises “new approach” with 2019 Insight remake.

by on Dec.19, 2017

Honda is hoping the third time will be the charm with the Insight hybrid, which will debut in Detroit next month.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That’s clearly a mantra for Honda as it gets ready to reveal a prototype version of its 2019 Insight model at next month’s North American International Auto Show. Then again, the Japanese automaker might be looking at another adage: the third time’s a charm.

For now, Honda isn’t saying much beyond promising it will take a “new approach” with the third-generation hybrid-electric vehicle, among other things opting for a conventional, albeit sleek and sexy design. It will also get a new, two-motor gas-electric drivetrain.

Stay Plugged In!

“You won’t have to be an electrification advocate to appreciate the new Insight – it’s a great car in its own right, independent of what’s happening under the hood,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., sales chief and general manager of the Honda Division in the U.S. “The all-new Insight embodies Honda’s approach to creating electrified vehicles without the typical tradeoffs.” (more…)

After several teases, Kia appears ready to unleash the Stinger, the brand's fastest car ever, in Detroit.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, or so said the late, great Muhammed Ali.

Kia seems to have had a similar philosophy in mind as it went to work on the new sports car it will unveil at the North American International Auto Show in less than three weeks.

Could Volkswagen be charged up to bring back the Microbus? This suggests maybe.

For those still hoping to see Volkswagen finally bring back the iconic Microbus, you might want to keep an eye on what the German maker is unveiling at the North American International Auto Show next month. A close look at these three teaser images suggests we’ll be seeing a new perspective on the original minivan.

For now, VW isn’t saying much, other than noting that the concept is an alternate take on the Golf-sized battery-electric I.D. hatchback that made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September. And it could provide a hint of what’s to come as VW prepares to launch more than two dozen new battery-cars during the next decade.

Auto Show News!

“The concept vehicle forges links between the legendary origins of the Volkswagen brand and its electrifying future,” explains a somewhat cryptic news release. “Like the I.D., this concept is also based on the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB), and so it shows the potential and bandwidth of the MEB.” (more…)

Honda will unveil its 2018 Honda Odyssey at the Detroit Auto Show next month, but gave a tease of what we might be in for.

Could soccer mom-mobiles become hip again? Well, they’re not likely to displace the SUV, but after years of decline, there’s some new momentum in the minivan market.

by on Dec.16, 2016

Lincoln's renaissance continues with the arrival of the new Continental. The sedan is the brand's flagship.

With the new Continental finally on the street, Lincoln has delivered on the promise it made to launch four all-new products — make that five, with the decision to keep the big Navigator alive and an all-new version of the full-size SUV set to roll out around a year from now.

But, to bend the old cliché, what has Lincoln done for us lately? And, more importantly, what is it planning to do during the next several years? We’re likely to find out as early as the upcoming North American International Auto Show, a number of sources both inside Ford Motor Co. and close to the company tell TheDetroitBureau.com.

Lincoln has long been considering that option, possibly even coming up with a luxury coupe based on the latest Mustang platform. But sources say the Ford luxury brand is confident it can, like Audi and Volvo, do just fine with a mix of front- and all-wheel-drive products, the Navigator being the one exception. (more…)
