2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar is a well known sports and luxury car manufacturer from England which since it was bought by the India brand Tata Motors it managed to grow a lot both as a company as well as a manufacturer so they now offer much better cars than they used to. However, despite the fact they grow a lot since they were bought, they haven’t managed to increase they sales figures as much as they want mostly because they offer only luxury sedans and sports cars. Luckily this is going to change and Jaguar actually hopes that this next car is going to allow them to increase their sales by at least 80% which should also mean that they are going to be able to build even more impressive cars than before.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace Review

2017 Jaguar F-Pace

 

The car which is going to do all of these is called the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace and even though it is an odd name for a crossover, it is actually going to use their new aluminum platform which also underpins the XE sedan. The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is going to compete with cars such as the BMW X3 and X4 as well as the new Audi crossovers and the Porsche Macan. However, unlike these, the price for the F-Pace is expected to be around $44,000 which is actually quite a bit less than a Macan, a very good starting point for Jaguar. The high performance S model though is going to cost over $50,000 which would still be better than some of its competitors.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace Engine

Jaguar Engine

Engine wise, this is going to be one of the first cars, besides the XE sedan, to use the new Ingenium family of engines. The base model is likely going to be offered with a 2 liter turbocharged inline 4 which would provide up to 260 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque which would allow the car to get to 60 MPH in under 6 seconds and get to a top speed of around 130 MPH, quite good for an entry level model. Options are going to include 2 diesel engines, both 2 liter units with either 170 or 200 horsepower and up to 400 lb-ft of torque while the top of the range S model is going to make use of the same 3 liter supercharged V6 from the XE S. This will provide 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque which should be enough to be similar in performance to the Macan S. All models will come with JLR’s all new 9 speed automatic gearbox and rear wheel drive as standard while a four wheel drive version is also going to be available.

On the inside the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is going to be quite impressive for a car in this price range mostly because it will carry over most of the interior from the XE sedan but it is going to offer more legroom and headroom both in the front and back thanks to the larger size of the cabin as well as quite a bit more luggage space. In terms of luxury and equipment, the car will unfortunately won’t come with leather as standard but the interior should not offer any visible plastics which should greatly increase its value over some of its major competitors.

Jaguar F Pace Exterior

Jaguar F-Pace side

The exterior of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is mostly finished and Jaguar proved this with their C-X17 concept which is quite likely very similar to the finished F-Pace. However, just like spy-shots suggested, the rear overhangs of the car have increased slightly meaning that it will offer more space inside the cabin than the concept. However, most other details such as the very good looking F-Type tail lights, the dual exhaust mounted to the center of the car or the XE front end are also going to be found on the production F-Pace.

2017 Jaguar XE

The Jaguar XE is a new offering on the US shores but despite that Jaguar already launched a small update at the LA Auto Show. The 2017 Jaguar XE comes with a couple of new engines, new price points as well as slight changes on the exterior. These are meant to make it a more competitive machine and considering how good it already looked we have no doubt that they will manage to do just that. Despite being the smallest model in the range, the XE comes with all the bells and whistles of a true sports car so it is based on an aluminum rear wheel drive platform which is lighter and more rigid than a steel one.

On top of that, an all wheel drive system is available as an option and for the first time ever on the US market, the car will come with a diesel. The prices have been adjusted as well so the base XE 25t will come at $34,900 while the diesel version of the car will start at $36,400. The top of the range model will start at a heftier $41,700 which is still well under the price of its closer competitors. However, the XE will get this price only when it will become available for sale in the early 2016.

Design

New jaguar XE

The design of the 2017 Jaguar XE changed only slightly so only a trained eye will see the differences. The base model will now get new exhaust tips as well as the LED daytime running lights while the top of the range model will get a new front bumper with the deletion of the old fog-lamps in the favor of a pair of LED ones. The designs of the wheels will also change slightly, especially for the diesel model which will get its own unique set.

The interior on the other hand remained pretty much the same to the one of the ongoing model. This doesn’t mean it is bad. In fact, it is one of the better interiors of its class being built out of nice materials and the comfort offered to its passengers being quite nice. The car will offer as standard climate control, a premium audio system, a large touch-screen in the center console which will actually be upgradable to a 10,2 inch LCD panel as well as a surround audio system. While the passengers only get an average amount of space, it is actually more than its direct competitor, the BMW 3 Series, is offering. The trunk is also average and the four wheel drive model will offer even less but that is a trade that most people will have to live with.

2017 Jaguar XE Engine

2017 Jaguar XE Engine

Engine wise, the 2017 Jaguar XE will offer three engines instead of the two of the current model. The base model will stick with the current Ingenium-family 2 liter turbocharged inline 4 petrol engine which is good for 240 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque while the top of the range model will remain the 3 liter supercharged V6 good for 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The biggest surprise, especially for the US market, is the 2 liter turbocharged diesel engine which is good for 180 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This not only feels fast thanks to that massive amount of torque but it is also one of the most fuel efficient engines on the market with an expected average of more than 35 MPG! All of them will only come with an 8 speed automatic and rear wheel drive as standard but both petrol engines will also be available with a torque on-demand system which will send to the front wheels power when the car needs it.

2016 Nissan GT-R

Starting with its release, the Nissan GT-R quickly became one of the best selling super cars in the World thanks to its affordable price, insane performance and good looks. The 2016 Nissan GT-R is going to be a redesign of an already good car, so there are nothing but good things to come from it. We are expecting it to feature a new engine, new interior as well as an update exterior which will remain similar to that of the old car but it will get updated in order to be able to face its competition better.

<

new Nissan GT-R

Price and release date

Its price will also get changed, and not for the better. The experts are guessing that the new GT-R, based on its new specs will cost at least 25.000 dollars more than the current generation which would put it right in the 911 Turbo territory. This isn’t exactly bad considering what you’ll get for the package. Its release date has been set at the end of 2015 or early 2016, so Nissan might change a few things until its official release.

2016 Nissan GT-R engine

2016 Nissan GT-R engine

Engine wise you would expect some major changes and you would be right for a part of it. The new GT-R will get the same 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 but this time it will make 580 horsepower, so just below the current Nismo GT-R. The news come in the form of a pair of electric motors and a set of batteries. The motors will be powering all four wheels and they will be controlled by a set of computers. Thanks to this upgrade, the 2016 GT-R will make in excess of 800 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque which would put it in P1 territory. Coupled with the great computer systems on it, it should perform like nothing else on the market today.

The transmission of choice should be developed together with Williams F1 and NISMO, so expect a 7 or 8 speed semi-automatic gearbox and permanent four wheel drive with automatic torque vectoring. This should make the GT-R stick to the road like nothing else.

Interior

2016 Nissan GT-R interior

There aren’t many details about its interior but from the early press releases we can suspect that it will take a similar approach, with everything centered on the driver, an infotainment system made in collaboration with Sony and also Recaro seats which should be extremely comfortable as well as very supporting.

2016 Nissan GT-R exterior

2016 Nissan GT-R model

The exterior of the 2016 Nissan GT-R will be changed completely, so it will be a bit wider, longer as well as shorter than the current generation. This translates in a more aggressive design, with better aerodynamics which should allow for a maximum top speed of around 220 miles per hour and an acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 2.7 seconds.

2016 Nissan Titan

Titan is Nissan’s biggest pickup introduced as an experiment back in 2004. How else do you call a vehicle made by a manufacturer without enough experience and renown in the segment, intended to take on a trio of untouchables, F-150, Ram 1500 and Silverado. 2016 Nissan Titan should be a next-gen model with plenty of updates as Japanese manfacturer hopes to finally get its sales soaring.

2016 Nissan Titan review

2016 Nissan Titan

Current powertrain options are way too fuel-consuming and tihat’s why 2016 Nissan Titan will be offered with some new engines. Current 5.6L V8 engine with 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque might get caried over for those that plan to tow large amount of cargo with their truck, but more importantly, new options will be available for day-to-day drivers with different needs. Nissan is finally offering Cummins diesel powertrain and it’s going to be a 5.0L V8 making more than 300 hp and hefty 550 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, don’t be surprised if you see new petrol V6 option intended for slightly better fuel efficiency and coming at a lower price.

Exterior

new Nissan Titan

Design-wise, 2016 Nissan Titan will be a completely new vehicle, but pickups generally can’t be changed that much. Nissan’s V-motion hoodline comes as a signature detail, and you can also expect new heavier grille and double-deck headlights. Revised front bumper will also find its place there, while the rear end won’t be changed much. New Titan should also grow in size as being the smallest full-size truck in the market didn’t help it as expected.

Interior

2016 Nissan Titan interior

Completely new interior is also in store for us, and besides new materials, Titan should finally get some advanced electronic safety features it lacked throughout the yeas. New interior will be more comfort-oriented and we expect new seats, both cloth and leather ones, new dashboard layout, more soft-touch plastics and more cubicles for smaller possessions. Infotainment system should also see an upgrade as 8-inch touch screen becomes available in lower grades as well as in higher ones. However, the biggest upgrade will come in safety department where, besides all mandatory options, 2016 Nissan Titan plans to add optional blind spot monitors, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

PRICE

Fuel efficency will be increased and dismal 13/18 mpg with RWD or 12/17 mpg with 4WD won’t be your only options. Cummins turbo diesel engine should raise the highway figures to at least mid twenties if not more. Price should rise slightly too, and expect base models to cost more than $30,000, while top grades should have a price tag larger than $40,000.

Nissan Titan side

2016 Nissan Titan should finally become competitive with new styling and upgrades. It will get advanced safety features and more importantly additional powertrain options which are more fuel-eficient. We eagerly anticipate 2015 Detroit Auto Show to finally see all these upgrades in action.

2015 Nissan Murano

When it was first launched, the Murano was more of an SUV rather than a crossover which offered great off-road performance with a very aggressive look. However, throughout the years this changed tremendously so the latest model of the car, the 2015 Nissan Murano, is a much more refined vehicle than the first generation and it also happens to be one of the best selling crossovers on the market to date. Its bold looks, great interior and good engine are the strong points of the car and there is really nothing wrong with it besides a few minor features which could be improved in the future models.

<

Nissan Murano 2016

2015 Nissan Murano Price

The 2015 model has been released back at the end of 2014 and since then it has not changed a bit. It looks great, the engine offered with the car is quite old but reasonably capable and the chassis is just as good as any other sedan chassis on the market. The only negative point of the car is that the off-road performance is nearly zero. This means that even when it is equipped with the all wheel drive system, the Murano is average at best because there are no lockable differentials and the braking-based torque vectoring system just can’t handle the torque of the car all that well. The good part is that the Murano is already available and it starts at just $31,000 or less which is very good for what it has to offer.

Exterior of Murano Model 2015

New Murano

The exterior of the 2015 Nissan Murano has to be the most intriguing part of the car because it looks like nothing else on the market and up until recently it has been the only good looking crossover in its class. The front end features the usual V-style grille with two integrated headlights which make it look quite aggressive. The B and C pillars have been blacked out so the car looks like a coupe having a floating roof effect while in the back it features the perfect blend between aggressive style and clean looks. The only problem here is that the A and C-pillars are quite thick so the visibility outside the car is not that great.

INTERIOR

Fortunately though, even the most basic Murano comes with frontal collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alerts and even an emergency braking system. All of these make it more than safe, especially in the city and surround it where the Murano shines. There are also quite a few commodity features such as automatic climate control, leather wrapped seats and better than average materials around the interior as well as a multifunctional steering wheel and more space than any of its direct competitors.

Engine

Under the hood of the 2015 Nissan Murano there is a single engine offering, a naturally aspirated 3.5 liter V6 which has been around for quite some time now. The good part is that the engine is quite gutsy even though it is not the most powerful out there and it offers a good amount of torque as well. It is capable of 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque which is likely going to be upgraded to around 300 horsepower in the 2016 model. The engine is coupled to a CVT gearbox which may sound like a problem but the CVT in the Murano is one of the best out there.

2016 Nissan Murano Platinum Engine

The only problem we have with it is that the driver can only change gears via the center mounted knob which is worse than having paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Front wheel drive is standard with all versions while all wheel drive can be had as an option and no matter which one the buyer chooses, the Murano will be able to deliver around 25 MPG on average with ease which is very impressive indeed.

The 2016 Porsche Cayman will be based on the current generation and it will include a new version, improved engines as well as a slightly updated interior, all at the same cost as before. Unfortunately though, Porsche still won’t be offering the Cayman at a reasonably price in order to be able to be more competitive.

2016 Porsche Cayman review

Expect to pay nearly 50.000 dollars for the base model which still is quite a lot of money, especially when you take into account there are a lot of other cars that offer pretty much the same thing with slightly less money or offer a lot more performance with the same amount of money paid. Its release date will be set at the end of 2015 in order to be launched as a 2016 model.

Porsche Cayman 2016

Changes

Changes will also be made to the car’s exterior, but just as with all other Porsche cars, this update will be minor. The front of the car will receive slightly updated headlights and a new bumper which has the same layout for the air intakes as before but it now offers LED daytime running lights integrated in it. The back of the car will also receive a small update in the form of a slightly bigger spoiler which now fully retracts in the boot lid. There isn’t any information yet about the wheels of the car but these are likely to be changed to newer models.

Interior

Its interior on the other hand will remain the same with two major changes. The steering wheel will be different because it will basically be the same unit as in the 911 while the dashboard will offer a bigger screen for the infotainment system.

2016 Porsche Cayman Engines

Things will start to get interesting in the engine compartment because the 2016 Porsche Cayman is likely to feature 4 cylinder engines along the usual flat 6. This means that it will be more fuel efficient and it will also be offered at a lower cost for those engines. The offered engines will most likely be all flat 4 units with a 1.6 liter 210 horsepower as the base unit. Further up the range there should be a 2 liter 286 horsepower as well as a 2.5 liter and 360 horsepower. All of these will be turbocharged in order to be able to compete with the flat 6. However, Porsche said that at its launch these will most likely won’t be available, so expect to wait at least one more year before getting them.

Porsche Cayman

There will also be a GT4 version which will feature a stripped down interior, bigger wheels and brakes as well as a different body kit similar to that of the GT3. This car will have a 3.4 liter flat 6 with around 380 horsepower.

Starting out with the base model before moving to the Panamera 4 indicating the presence of the all-wheel drive and then the Panamera S. from this you’ve got the essential combinations that’s the Panamera 4s along with the standalone GTS, lastly you have the range-topping Turbo.

You can only guess with the incredible features that the new Panamera offers that the car is expensive. It is expected that you would pay a premium to pilot the car given its status in the world of luxury cars. The entry level for the base Panamera of $78,100 is not out of line. By selecting the top-tier Panamera s Turbo Executive you would spend well over $200,500 on the Panamera, that’s a screaming spread of $122,400 between the base Panamera and the most expensive version.

2015 Toyota Aurion

The Aurion is the name Toyota gave to a very close relative of the Camry in Australia and some parts of Asia. The car has been sold in these parts of the World in roughly the same shape for more than 8 years and it is now going to receive an update with the 2015 Toyota Aurion which seems to be more than just a mild facelift. While it will continue to use the same platform as the Camry, this time the car is going to get o a slightly different path with a new design, a new interior as well as different options, better suited for the markets it is sold in.

2015 Toyota Aurion Price And Release Date

The official release date is still unknown but the new Aurion should be ready to be released to the public by the end of the second quarter of 2015 while the showroom release should be ready by the end of the year. The price will also remain unchanged with the base car going for $36,000 while the top of the range model topping at nearly $44,000, a competitive price for a car this powerful.

new 2015 Toyota Aurion

Engine

Engine wise nothing is going to change for the new Aurion, so the car will still rock the same old naturally aspirated 3.5 liter V6 which is good for 270 horsepower and 336 N*m of torque, a hefty power output but a mild fuel consumption at best. This will only power the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission which can be had with paddle shifters only on the top end model, the Sportivo.

2015 Toyota Aurion engine

There are rumors that in the future the old V6 is going to be replaced with a turbocharged 2 liter inline 4 which is going to offer around 300 horsepower and 400 N*m of torque, all while using around 15 to 20% less fuel, depending on the situation, quite a big improvement in our opinion.

Interior of new Aurion

2015 Toyota Aurion interior

On the inside, the 2015 Toyota Aurion won’t remain unchanged, so the quality of the materials is going to get better, the equipment level will increase and the seats are going to be more comfortable. This is going to be achieved with a more levels of adjusting them, allowing the driver and its right passenger to find the perfect position. On top of that, a 4.2 inch LCD screen will now be standard on all models as well as the dual-zone automatic climate control unit. Satellite navigation as well as a touch-screen are also available as optional extras.

The outside of the car will not change all that much despite the fact the Camry received a massive exterior update. The only real changes are the new headlights, the slightly different design for the tail lights as well as new pair of rims, depending on the model of choice.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser

The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s current flagship for their current SUV division, a car released back at the end of 2007 which only received an update back in 2013. While most people expected an all new car, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is actually going to be another update of the older model, an update which is expected to be around for roughly 3 years when it is going to be replaced with the new generation of the car which is likely going to ditch its body on frame construction for a more conventional uni-body design.

Until then though, the new Land Cruiser is going to be a better looking version of the current model and not much more. While Toyota hasn’t said anything about it just yet, just a few days ago there has been a massive leak which shows a brochure of the Japanese model of the car, explaining the new features and having a clear picture of the car. It seems that this new model is going to be closer in terms of equipment as well as quality to the Lexus LX, its close relative. This has been a long wait especially when we factor in its base cost of more than $80,000, more than most other cars in its class.

On the outside, the new 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is going to change for the better. The front end seems to be revised quite heavily, with a new grille with integrated headlights which do make the car appear wider. On top of that, the bumper has also been changed and it now features different looking fog-lights as well as a subtle grille that runs across the width of the car. The headlights are now dual-Xenon units with integrated LED lights while at the back it will get a new set of LED tail lights as well as a new chrome bar which will span across the width of the rear tailgate.

The inside on the other hand is expected to get quite a few updates with more equipment available in the base model. Things such as a meter that will show how steep the current road is, it will get blind-spot warning lights in the mirrors as well as a new type of parking sensors which should make the massive 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser easier to park in the city. The quality of the materials will also be a lot better with a softer material on the dashboard as well as all leather and aluminum inner trimmings.

Under its hood nothing is going to change, so it will still offer the same naturally aspirated 5.7 liter V8, good for 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, enough for its class but its fuel consumption will always be just too high for it to make sense in the current market.

2016 Toyota Prius

The newest generation of the Prius has just been released a few days back and it is a much more striking car than everyone expected it to be. The design changed a lot, it rides on a new platform and it is also supposed to get an all new engine which should make it one of the most fuel efficient cars in the World.

2016 Prius World Premiere

Price And Release Date

The 2016 Toyota Prius is the fourth generation of the car and it should be ready for sale by the start of 2016. It seems that the price will slightly rise from that of the ongoing model with the base version of the car being expected to cost around $26,000.

2016 Toyota Prius Review

Just as we said, the car actually rides on an all new platform, Toyota’s New Global Architecture which it will share with the RAV4, the Corolla as well as a few other cars out there. This new platform provides a lower center of gravity, it is made mostly out of high strength steel and aluminum, so it is both lighter and more rigid than the previous one.

The powertrain of the new 2016 Toyota Prius will change a lot over that of the current model and even though it will continue to be a hybrid, the 2016 model is expected to be the first petrol powered car to get over 60 MPG on average. However, unlike the previous model, there are now going to be two different versions of the car which will use the same engine.

Both of the models of the 2016 Toyota Prius will make use of a naturally aspirated 1.8 liter Atkinson cycle engine which will now offer a thermal efficiency of more than 40% which would be a nice improvement over the current engine. On top of that, it will also get a smaller, more powerful and more efficient electric motor as well as a revised gearbox. These should improve the fuel consumption by around 10% which is not that bad. The total power of the car is expected to be kept around 140 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque which is not great but it is certainly sufficient for a daily commuter car.

Battery

The biggest change will come with the battery which will be installed in the car. There are now going to be two different versions. The first will be similar to that of the current model but it will offer a denser package while the premium model will get a lithium-ion battery pack which will get a 20% improvement in its capacity and around 10% shaved from its weight. These should further improve fuel consumption and allow the Prius to be more efficient and more reliable.

2016 Toyota Prius Exterior Design

The design of the car did not remain the same either which is a bit of a surprise because Toyota said that they want to keep the Prius look intact. Instead, they went for a more futuristic look and the new model now has an entirely new front fascia with more aggressive headlights, a different lower grille and triangular motives in and around the car. The rear C-pillar has been blacked out in order to give it a floating roof effect while at the back the car is mostly identical to the Mirai which is a bit of a disappointment considering Toyota said they will not copy the design of that car.

Interior Design

Inside the cabin, the 2016 Toyota Prius is also quite impressive but not what we expected it to be. The design is similar to the Toyota Mirai but the materials are not as good. On top of that, Toyota decided to mount a small joystick-like gear changing system which is mounted quite low on the center console. The equipment level when it will launch it will be quite good with a standard infotainment system, climate control and even electric windows and mirrors.
