There have been rumors of a Ford Bronco Heritage Limited Edition since the beginning of the year. On January 4, a Bronco6G forum member began a thread about the model based on word from a Ford source, the only info at the time indicating an E5G body code for a two-door Bronco Heritage Limited and an E5H body code for the four-door version. Apparently Ford intended to sell the trim for the 2021 and 2022 model years, but life got in the way, so the first year was scrapped.
In this week's news-we-definitely-didn't-see-coming, Honda has decided to release a mobile game featuring the new Civic Si. Interestingly, there's a real-world element to the game as well, since "players posting the top three scores of the week will win a digital voucher to purchase Honda or Red Bull Racing official licensed merchandise." "Hot Wheels Unleashed" has quickly become one of our new favorite games to play on our weekly livestream, Tuesdays at 2pm ET, and we were thrilled to see some exciting new content announcements for it this week.
While I find plenty of 1950s Detroit cars in quick-inventory-turnover self-service wrecking yards during my travels, they tend to be the ordinary post sedans that were built by the millions during the heyday of the three-on-the-tree manual transmission and nuclear-attack symbols on car radios. The more sought-after convertibles, coupes, and four-door hardtops are tougher to find in such yards, which makes today's 1957 Buick Special Riviera in a yard in northeastern Colorado an A-List Junkyard Gem. Of course, this was the era of Alfred Sloan's "Ladder of Success" and the lowliest Special outranked even the nicest Olds Ninety-Eight on the Swank-O-Meter.
Ducati has inked a deal to become the exclusive motorcycle supplier for MotoE. The company announced the historic deal at Italy's Misano World Circuit just ahead of the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix this weekend. The electric class of the MotoGP World Championship will see an all-Ducati field starting in 2023.
It has happened to all of us at one time or another; a sudden realisation of two-tone horns or a blue flashing light indicating an emergency vehicle trying to make progress through traffic.
Air travelers seeking rental cars are faced with higher prices and lower-quality rentals thanks to the ongoing effects of the pandemic, J.D. Power said in its 2021 North America Rental Car Satisfaction Study, which placed Enterprise atop the heap of companies that otherwise saw near-universal declines in their ratings even compared to a year ago, when the pandemic was in full swing. Enterprise ranks highest in overall customer satisfaction, with a score of 861, followed fairly closely by National and Alamo. Overall customer satisfaction for the industry is 830, down from 841 in 2020.
If you asked us here at Autoblog which BMW is our favorite to drive, the M2 CS would top more than a few lists. Road Test Editor Zac Palmer describes it as “the BMW everybody wants and yearns for,” and most of us tend to agree. With its 3.0L twin-turbo V6 making 444 horsepower, it is quicker than both the M2 and M2 Competition, though with a price tag approaching six figures it is quite a bit more expensive too.
Subaru declared October 22 “National Make A Dog’s Day” a couple years ago, because of course it did. Today is October 22, and Subaru is celebrating it once again in hopes that folks get out there and quite literally, make a dog’s day. How is this related to Subaru, you might ask?
Say hello to our not-so-long-term TLX Type S, which is subbing in for the A-Spec while the latter undergoes a little exploratory surgery to diagnose what appears to be an escalating electrical issue. What first manifested as odd transmission behavior and the occasional infotainment reboot escalated to the vehicular equivalent of a grand mal seizure on a rainy Michigan day, resulting in a flat-bed ride to the dealership and fast-tracking our plans to get the TLX in for a diagnosis. While the extra power is certainly welcome, it comes at a cost – 200 pounds, give or take.
According to the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index, wholesale used car and truck prices rose 8.3% in the first 15 days of October compared to September. Going into 2022, AutoNation CEO Mike Jackson believes demand for vehicles will not abate anytime soon.
In many cases, to do so, all you'll need is a trusty OBD2 scanner. The Ancel AD310 OBD2 scanner features a traditional design and the ability to scan and erase trouble codes. The scanner will work on most 1996 and newer U.S.-based cars and 2000 and newer EU-based and Asian vehicles.
It’s been one year and one day since we first spied the Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance. Obvious flaps on both rear fenders — one for fuel and the other for a plug — tell us that this AMG S-Class will be a plug-in hybrid and combine power from both a gasoline engine and electric motor. Perhaps the most intriguing part of these spy shots today is simply the lack of camouflage, though.
Ohio's Bureau of Motor Vehicles says it's going to fix the error before the new design goes into effect. The banner of the new design retains Ohio's longstanding slogan "Birthplace of Aviation," so it yields no ground to the longstanding license plate grudge match with North Carolina, whose plate's slogan is "First in Flight."
Support vehicles aren't supposed to get your attention, but that's exactly what a 2021 Honda Ridgeline did when I joined Honda for a local drive of the 2022 Civic Sedan. Painted in a bright white, accented by striking bronze wheels and tattooed with cool graphics, the Ridgeline made a lasting impression for more reasons than just serving up icy beverages from its under-bed cooler. What exactly is the HPD Package?
Lexus has vanda — uh, customized — ten cars to go along with "Eternals," the latest movie in the Marvel cinematic universe. Each vehicle has been chosen to represent one of ten heroes from the story, wrapped in colorful designs that Lexus says reflect their costumes and powers. Thena, incarnated as a white and gold Lexus LC500, seems like a perfect embodiment of Angelina Jolie's character's power and elegance.
If you were one of the people affected by Ford's fumbling rollout of the Bronco, you might still be able to get one in time for Christmas. -Ed), has debuted a pint-sized Ford Bronco based on the sixth-generation rig.
Ford Performance is treating the Ford Bronco to a bevy of new off-road parts at SEMA this year. Plus, Ford just released a big information dump on all of the Bronco and Bronco Sport builds it’s bringing to the SEMA show happening in November. The list starts with a new Ford Performance front drive unit that supports up to a 5.38:1 gearset for even greater off-road performance.
Nearly one in five vehicles sold in the European Union in the third quarter was an electrified model as sales continued to soar while fossil-fuel cars slumped, according to sales data released on Friday by a trade organization. The European Automobile Manufacturers' Association, or ACEA, which represents major European car, truck, van and bus makers, said that battery electric and plug-in hybrid model sales across the European Union made up just under 19% of all sales. Battery electric vehicle sales jumped nearly 57% to more than 212,000 units, while plug-in hybrid models rose nearly 43% to more than 197,000 units.
With the introduction of the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X (alongside its mechanical twin, the Chevy Silverado ZR2), the crowd has grown even thicker. Anybody who sells a pickup truck offers some sort of basic off-road prep package like this one. Z71 is found on GM vehicles; FX4 is Ford's. Ram just calls it "Off Road Group," but no matter what you call them, they're all pretty similar.
GMC Sierra's 2022 update is here, boasting a ground-up interior redesign, an updated Super Cruise package with trailering support, and two new trims aimed at very different buyers. While the GMC Sierra's bones are undeniably good, its interior has really held it back from our full-throated support in recent years. Hot on the heels of its revamped platform mate, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, the new Sierra arrives with a similar suite of upgrades, plus a few items that will remain exclusive to the fancy-pants Sierra for now, like Enhanced Super Cruise with available automatic lane-change and trailering mode.
GMC's new uber-expensive 2022 Sierra Denali Ultimate is the latest luxury truck to nudge toward six-figure territory. With demand for upmarket half-tons surging, GMC's otherwise-solid pickup found itself in desperate need of an interior remodel. For 2022, we're getting just that, and it appears ready to take the fight to the segment's best, including the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited and 2022 Ford F-150 Limited.
(Reuters) -Many people are passionate about climate change, but not everybody should drive a battery electric vehicle as a means to combat climate change, Toyota Motor Corp Chief Scientist Gill Pratt said on Thursday at the Reuters Events Automotive Summit. Pratt's comments, during a discussion on electric vehicles, appeared to amplify remarks made over the past year by Toyota President Akio Toyoda. Toyoda and other company officials have said that electric vehicles will play a greater role in reducing emissions, but other solutions should be used, Toyota's gasoline-electric hybrid models or hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles.
