Auto Blog News Feed: 2019 Genesis Essentia Concept is elegant by design

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 21:00

Filed under: ,,,,,

One of the biggest stunners of the New York Auto Show came from an unlikely stand — that of Genesis, Hyundai's nascent luxury spinoff. The Genesis Essentia Concept was described as a multi-motor EV with a 0-60 time of 3 seconds and enough silicon to pass the Turing test, but that's not what made it special. It stood out because it's downright gorgeous, a proper show car seemingly plucked from the golden age of pre-OPEC oil embargo dream machines.

Auto Blog News Feed: Junkyard Gem: 1991 BMW 325i

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 20:05

Filed under: ,,

Word on the street is that the iconic and much-beloved BMW E30, the 3 Series for most of the 1980s and a bit of the 1990s, has become too rare and valuable to show up in America's big self-service wrecking yards. Don't believe it! I see E30s in most of Colorado, Arizona, and California yards I frequent during my travels. Last month, I stepped into a big Denver-area wrecking yard with a mission: photograph the first E30 I saw. Here it is, a faded-but-intact 1991 325i sedan.

Auto Blog News Feed: 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt spied in Shadow Black with chrome trim

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 19:09

Filed under: ,,,,

This year's Detroit Auto Show may have been big on trucks thanks to the reveal of the 2019 Ram 1500, 2019 Chevy Silverado and 2019 Ford Ranger, but the biggest surprise was arguably the return of the Ford Mustang Bullitt. Think of the Bullitt as a pumped-up Mustang GT with a touch of retro styling. Until now, all we've seen is the wonderful Highland Green color, but thanks to some spy shots we have our first look at the car's other color, Shadow Black.

Auto Blog News Feed: No more V12 engines for Mercedes-AMG

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 19:01

Filed under: ,,,

We were granted a bit of time with the head of Mercedes-AMG, Tobias Moers, during the New York Auto Show last week. Among other topics, we asked him about AMG's famed V12 engines and whether they have much of a future with AMG. It seems they don't. Moers told us that he doesn't feel they're necessary for AMG's products, especially vehicles unique to the AMG brand such as the AMG GT.

Auto Blog News Feed: Pennsylvania Turnpike workers are the heroes to two stuck goats

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 18:30

Filed under:

What's with all the weird bridge news this week? First there was the truck with the raised dump trailer that clobbered a bridge in a video. Then the Slow Mo Guys created their own bridge crash and got some great video. Now, highway workers have rescued two little goats who lost their way — stranded on a beam of the Mahoning River Bridge, near New Castle, Pa. They were midspan on the 1,700-foot-long bridge, which is 109 feet tall.

Auto Blog News Feed: MW Motors Luka EV is 'Retro outside, future inside'

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 18:13

Filed under: ,,,,,,

A couple of years ago, a team from the Czech Republic set out to create the retro-looking Luka EV, an electric car with goals for long range (186 miles), an affordable price (less than €20,000), and a light weight (less than 1,650 pounds). When we first heard of the Luka back in the summer of 2015, the team had just begun testing its first prototype. Now, MW Motors has announced that the resulting vehicle is ready to launch. Furthermore, it looks great.

Auto Blog News Feed: Chevy updates: Malibu gets RS trim, Cruze loses manual, Spark sticks around

The Top Zones - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 04:01

Filed under: ,,,

Chevrolet has a lot of changes in store for 2019. None of them are especially major, but they're coming to three of Chevrolet's passenger car models, the Malibu, Cruze and Spark. They all get mildly revised front and rear fascias, updated color schemes, and new options and packages. The amount of change varies from car to car, so we'll start with what's arguably the most significantly updated, the Malibu.

Auto Blog News Feed: The Monroney sheet: a window sticker history

The Top Zones - Thu, 04/05/2018 - 22:01

Filed under: ,,

Imagine walking into a car dealership blindfolded, not knowing for certain what exactly you were paying for when buying that shiny, brand-new vehicle on the showroom floor. Imagine not being able to see a list price for each individual vehicle option and add on, not knowing for sure how much the destination charge was, or even what the list price of the vehicle itself was. Instead, you'd have to trust the dealer's word on all of that. Sounds a little bit crazy, right?

Auto Blog News Feed: Tesla shares surge past $300 again

The Top Zones - Thu, 04/05/2018 - 19:57

Filed under: ,,

In recent days and weeks, Tesla shares have seen some of their lowest prices in since they first surpassed $300 a year ago. Ahead of the announcement of the company's first-quarter production figures, amidst a Moody's downgrade, the price took a hit. The news of a fatal Autopilot crash in a Model X didn't help. Neither did the continuing and increasing tensions over a possible trade war between the U.S. and China, which has the potential to be particularly burdensome to American automakers &mdas

Auto Blog News Feed: 2018 Corolla Buyer's Guide: What you need to know about this compact sedan

The Top Zones - Thu, 04/05/2018 - 19:30

Filed under: ,

When it comes to long-running nameplates, the Toyota Corolla has few peers. It was first introduced as part of a wave of imported Japanese economy cars in the U.S. in 1968. While peers like the Datsun 411 and Honda N600 didn't last as long, contemporary successors like the Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic are serious competition for the venerable Corolla.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, The Rock had this to say about Diesel, with whom he costars in several movies from the Fast and Furious franchise: "Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer ...
