The 2014 SRT Viper TA

The 2014 SRT Viper TA - does it replace or preface the Viper ACR?

The 2014 SRT Viper TA has stormed onto the scene with improvements that make it the best performing new Viper but the new Time Attack model leaves many wondering whether the TA has been introduced instead of the American Club Racer or if the Viper TA is just the first step towards the new Viper ACR.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee

The Chrysler Group has issued a short video showing the 2014 Jeep Cherokee in action in some fairly serious offroad settings – clearly showing that this Dodge Dart-based midsized SUV will be every bit as worthy of the “Trail Rated” tag as the rest of the current Jeep lineup.

The concept cars of NYIAS or the automotive future at the crossroads

There are two kinds of people who attend auto shows – those who plan to buy a new car soon and want to see them all in one place to make comparisons and narrow their choices or those who simply want to be thrilled by the latest models and especially the ground-breaking concepts that herald the cars of the future.
The Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition

Refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro to debut at the New York Auto Show

We are still working our way through all of the debuts at the Geneva Motor Show but we have just learned that the refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will make its grand debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show later this month – along with a handful of other American auto show debuts from Chevy.
The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

Turbocharged 4-cylinder 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost for Europe only

We have long been expecting the upcoming 2015 Ford Mustang to pack a turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine but according to reports coming out of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, American buyers will be snubbed on the turbo 4 front as only the European market will get the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost models.
The Audi RS Q3

The new Audi RS Q3 debuts in Geneva with big power in a small crossover

While there was once a time where only 2-door coupes were taken seriously as sports models, the Audi RS Q3 that debus this week at the Geneva Motor Show illustrates how well Audi can turn anything into a high performance model by adding big power and a sharpened exterior to their small crossover – resulting in a great looking addition to the RS lineup.

The US bound Alfa Romeo 4C makes its world debut in Geneva

The Alfa Romeo 4C will help to reintroduce the Italian brand in US Fiat dealerships soon and today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the compact 4C sports car made its global debut in front of the huge Suisse crowd – even though the company remains fairly tight lipped on the full specifications of the new US-bound Alfa coupe.
