Toyota's FT-4X concept, a compact crossover introduced at the New York auto show this month, is packed with funky features and daring design cues aimed at millennials with a taste for the great outdoors
Behind the scenes at the New York auto show, industry executives were grappling with questions about cars. How low will their market share go, amid hot crossovers and SUVs? How to reignite the appeal of cars?
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, unveiled at the New York auto show, traded in the performance brand's halo for horns with performance numbers normally associated with much more expensive brands. Staff writers Mike Wayland and Richard Truett debate the logic of Dodge's decision.
Toyota is hinting at plans to market an all-wheel-drive vehicle that's more rugged than the typical subcompact crossover but not as hardcore as the larger, body-on-frame FJ Cruiser that was dropped in 2014.
Ford's Lincoln Navigator has been redesigned and re-engineered to be lighter, faster, more spacious and more luxurious to help the brand recapture lost ground in the profitable full-size luxury SUV market.
Jaguar is slotting a new 296-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged motor in the F-Type for 2018 that marks the first time since before World War II that the famed British brand has equipped a sports cars with a four-cylinder engine. The F-Type will be one of the few sports cars available with a four-, six- or eight-cylinder engine.
Acura is doubling down on its sedan-based reinvention with the release of the 2018 TLX. The freshening of Acura's midsize sedan is aimed at juicing consumer interest in the car and the brand amid declining sales for both.
Dodge created a specialized version of its 8-year-old Challenger coupe specifically for drag racing by cutting weight, increasing horsepower and making other changes to boost acceleration off the line. Jeep, meanwhile, unveiled a fire-breathing variant of the Grand Cherokee called the Trackhawk.
The Buick Enclave, after a first generation that lasted a decade, drops nearly 400 pounds for 2018 while gaining cargo space and improved fuel economy. The redesigned Enclave marks the debut of Avenir, a subbrand aimed at making Buick more of a luxury player while padding profits with upscale features such as an in-vehicle ionizer.
Lexus, aiming like many automakers to pump some excitement into the lackluster car market, is giving the redesigned LS 500 flagship sedan some sporty bells and whistles just months after its introduction at the Detroit auto show.
Infiniti is extending the expressive, confident styling of its recent QX50 concept and Q60 coupe to its full-size QX80 SUV. The QX80 is a key piece of Infiniti's sales, generating high transaction prices but also drawing a younger, high-end clientele than a typical full-size premium SUV normally attracts, the company says.
