Kia Goes 3-Row With New Telluride SUV

Korean carmaker reveals its biggest model ever.

by on Jan.14, 2019

Kia is playing catch up when it comes to its sport-utility line-up. The new Telluride is a big move in that direction.

Automotive designers like to keep an eye on the fashions of the day – which helps explain why we got a first look at a concept version of the new Kia Telluride at New York’s Fashion Week last autumn. Now, the actual production version of the three-row SUV is making its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Like sibling brand Hyundai, the Korean carmaker clearly needs what will be its biggest vehicle ever. The American market has shifted rapidly from sedans and coupes to SUVs and CUVs during the last several years, short-circuiting what had been a decade of substantial growth.

Business News!

As was widely expected, the production model is all but identical to the ute we saw in New York, minus some extreme touches like the snorkel, bumper-mounted, spare, ladder and, oddly enough, the hat box on the roof. (more…)

Downsized Detroit Auto Show Still Has Some Big Debuts

SUVs, CUVs, even a few sedans and coupes.

by on Jan.13, 2019

The North American International Auto Show will host scads of new vehicle debuts in January for the last time as it moves to June for 2020.

The North American International Auto Show is set to make its last winter run. No, NAIAS isn’t going away. It’s just moving to June in 2020, a definite relief for those who’ve had to trudge down to the Detroit riverfront for the annual event since it went “international” 30 years ago.

The show is a fair bit downsized from its glory days when as many as 70 new products debuted during three packed days of press previews. That said, this year’s event still has some significant, headline-making vehicles set to make a first appearance.

Chevy Launches Expansive Marketing Blitz for Silverado

Brand hitting new and old media to hype latest truck.

by on Jan.09, 2019

Chevrolet's new promotional blitz for the new Silverado includes a new TV ad titled "A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock 'n Roll."

Chevrolet has launched a broad new marketing campaign to bolster the sales of the all-new 2019 Silverado that includes an alliance with Amazon, the top retailer in the U.S.

The marketing campaign began with a traditional television advertising blitz during the College Football Playoff National Championship this week with the debut of the new 60-second TV commercial “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock n’ Roll” and carried over onto late-night television.

News Now!

The campaign comes as the Silverado is feeling some intense pressure from its main rivals Ram and Ford. Ram sales are steadily closing the gap with Silverado. Ram sold 500,000 units in 2017, but sales increased 7% to 536,980 while Chevrolet’s sale were essentially 585,561 in part because GM was re-fitting its plants to bring on the new version of the Silverado.  (more…)

Mercedes Pulls Wraps Off Gen-2 CLA at CES

An emphasis on technology.

by on Jan.08, 2019

Mercedes-Benz is looking to recreate the buzz that the first-generation CLA generated during its debut in 2013.

If at first you do succeed, try, try again, or so one might say of the new sedan Mercedes-Benz unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today.

The original Mercedes CLA was one of the biggest hits the German brand ever had when it was launched in 2013, drawing in a mix of hip young buyers, many entering the luxury segment for the first time thanks to a price tag starting just under $30,000. The coupe-like sedan did have its share of critics, however, and Mercedes aims to address some of their concerns with the second-generation CLA.

Product News!

“The new edition of the CLA has been developed further in an intelligent way and is even more emotional and sportier than its predecessor,” said Britta Seeger, the global head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. “Coupled with new operating systems, it sets new benchmarks for the entire class.” (more…)

Subaru Teases WRX STI S209

Performance boost for hot hatch could be in the works.

by on Jan.04, 2019

Subaru is offering a little tease of what's to come in Detroit: The new WRX STI S209.

Subaru has long been a big player in the hot hatch segment with its WRX STI and it will show off what is expected to be an even sportier version at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit later this month.

But what exactly it has in mind with the WRX STI S209 remains to be seen. The “S” designation has been used on a number of models specifically earmarked for the Japanese domestic market, and this could signal that U.S. performance fans might now be able to get one, as well.

Auto Show News!

There’s also the possibility that the S209 coming to Detroit could be used to signal the arrival of an all-new version of the performance hatchback which is, Subaru must admit, getting a little long in the tooth. (more…)

Hyundai Builds the “Ultimate Mobility Vehicle”

Hyundai Elevate promises to go “where no vehicle has been before.”

by on Jan.02, 2019

Hyundai believes it has developed the ultimate mobility vehicle with its Elevate concept.

There are plenty of vehicles on the market that claim to be able to “go anywhere,” products like the Land Rover Velar, Jeep Wrangler and Mercedes-Benz G-Class. But there are, in fact, limits to their mobility, something that Hyundai contends it can overcome with a new concept vehicle set to debut at the Consumer Electronics Show next week.

Dubbed the Hyundai Elevate, the prototype mounts its tires at the end of four spindly legs which, the Korean carmaker contends, will “redefine our perception of vehicular mobility.”

News You Can Trust!

While the automaker is saving most of the details until its CES news conference in Las Vegas next week, a terse news release adds that Elevate “combines the power of robotics and EV technology to take people where no vehicle has been before.” (more…)

Tesla Pushing Midnight Sales to Clear Backlog of 3K Model 3s

Musk offers big incentives to Tesla employees to buy a new car.

by on Dec.31, 2018

Tesla's Elon Musk is looking to sell Model 3s all the way til midnight to make sure buyers get the full $7,500 tax credit.

Two nights ago, Tesla boss Elon Musk sent out a tweet telling his millions of followers that there was 48 hours left to buy a new EV and still qualify for the full $7,500 tax credit from the U.S. government.

Nothing wrong for being a shill for your company and its products on social media, but it’s becoming more clear as to why he was so motivated to try to drum of up sales for a company that supposedly has a lengthy waiting list for new Model 3 sedans.

Happy New Year!

Tesla has more than 3,000 Model 3s left in inventory in the United States as of Sunday, according to website Electrek, which cited people familiar with the matter. (more…)

Russian Automaker GAZ Pushes for U.S. to Lift Sanctions

Treasury Department moving to accelerate process.

by on Dec.27, 2018

Russian automaker GAZ is looking to get the U.S. to lift sanctions off the company so it can do business here.

The Russian and U.S. governments are discussing lifting the U.S. sanctions on a Russian automaker, GAZ, which is part of a holding company in which a prominent Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, has a key stake.

The talks aimed at lifting U.S. sanctions on Russian automaker GAZ are ongoing with the U.S. Treasury Department, and the company is implementing internal measures to encourage the process, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said, according to Reuters.

Global News!

The U.S. Treasury extended a deadline for investors to divest from GAZ to March 7, a day after it announced it would lift sanctions on the core assets of Deripaska’s empire — Rusal, the world’s second largest aluminum company, and its parent En+ of which GAZ is also a part. (more…)
