Fans of GM SUVs, rejoice: We’ve just had our first look at the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015 Tahoe and 2015 GMC Yukon. Early Thursday, Chevy took the wraps off the Suburban and Tahoe in New York. Meanwhile, GMC revealed the Yukon range, which includes the Yukon XL and Yukon Denali, in Los Angeles.Cars, Chevrolet, GMC, Review, Suburban, Yukon
Here’s another one that’ll probably go straight into the “not bound for United States shores” file: the Ford S-Max concept, which will make its grand debut at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show. Ford says the S-Max previews a “future sport activity vehicle,” which may, in fact, be contemporary PR-speak for “mini-minivan.”Cars, Ford, Review
It wasn’t all that long ago that people bought Hyundai’s because they were a less-expensive alternative to Toyotas and Hondas.
Nowadays, though, Hyundai models across all price points more than hold their own against the competition. A good case in point is the midsized Sonata four-door sedan, which earns high marks in one of the most fiercely competitive and crowded segments of the marketplace.
U.S. News & World Report ranks the 2013 Sonata in a dead heat with the all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid as being the very best among affordable sedans and ranks the Sonata Hybrid third. That’s mighty impressive, any way you look at it.Cars, Hyundai, Review, Sonata
Hard to believe, but Nissan’s upscale Infiniti division is closing on being one quarter of a century old. And from the time it first started selling cars in the United States in late 1989, Infiniti’s products typically have been a little edgier and sportier than many of its competitors.
That’s still true today.
Infiniti’s flagship sedan for 2013 is the M56, now in its third year of production. The Infiniti M comes in several distinct flavors: The M37 is a six-cylinder sedan powered by a 330-horsepower, 3.7-liter sedan, while this week’s test car, the M56, gets the much more powerful 5.6-liter V-8 that produces a full 420 horsepower. There is also am M Hybrid variant based on the M37, and both the M37 and M56 are available with your choice of rear- or all-wheel drive.Cars, Infiniti, M56, Nissan, Review
