2016 Nissan Juke Specs and Prices S 4dr Front-wheel Drive

2016 Juke New Car Test Drive

Introduction The Nissan Juke gets a revised front and rear appearance and added features for the 2015 model year. When the quirky Juke subcompact sport-utility was introduced for 2011, it had little competition in North America.  Four years later, however, this refreshed 2015 Juke faces competition from several interesting new entries, including the Chevrolet Trax, Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, and Mazda CX-3. All are small crossover utility vehicles (CUVs) derived from subcompact cars.  Juke comes standard with front-wheel drive but offers the option of all-wheel drive (AWD).  With quirky styling, good performance and decent cargo space, the Juke is nearly as practical as it is fun to drive. The name Juke suggests flitting around town, as a boxer might juke around the ring, and that's just what it does: The Nissan Juke is a great car for running errands, hauling small stuff, jumping in and out and parking in tight places. With responsive steer...

2016 QX80 New Car Test Drive

Introduction The 2015 Infiniti QX80 full-size luxury SUV gets a new exterior design, an upgraded interior, more standard features, and a new Limited Package.  Formerly called QX56, the largest vehicle from Nissan's luxury division was renamed QX80 for the 2014 model year. The QX prefix designates it as an SUV, while the 80 suffix denotes the largest model in the QX series, which includes the smaller QX50, QX60, and QX70.  Leading the changes to the 2015 Infiniti QX80 exterior are a revised front bumper, new grille insert design, integrated rear bumper protector, flush front and rear sonar sensors, new LED signature headlights with High Beam Assist, LED three-blink turn signals and fog lights, and new 20-inch and 22-inch wheel designs.  Inside, Mocha Burl trim (formerly available on the Deluxe Touring Package) replaces Tuscan Burl as the standard trim. A new burl trim, Strafford Burl, is added to the new Deluxe Technology Package. A Mocha Burl and...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Specs and Prices Laredo 4dr 4x2

2016 Grand Cherokee New Car Test Drive

Introduction Jeep Grand Cherokee is the flagship of the brand and for many years was the quintessential SUV. Today, the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee seats a family of five, drives well on road or off and sports classic good looks.  There have been few changes for 2015 following a major refresh for 2014 that included exterior and interior upgrades, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the addition of a diesel engine.  New for 2015: A new Summit California Edition appearance package is available, along with an optional Argentina Tan leather interior. Active Noise Cancellation is standard on 2015 Grand Cherokee Summit models. Engine output for the 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT has increased to 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque; and there's a new special-edition Red Vapor version. The other 2015 Grand Cherokee models carry over unchanged from 2014. The last time Grand Cherokee was completely redesigned was for the 2011 model year.  Rear-w...

2016 GMC Sierra 3500HD Specs and Prices Base 4x2 Regular Cab 133.6 in. WB SRW

2016 Sierra 3500HD New Car Test Drive

Introduction The GMC Sierra HD rolls into the 2015 model year looking like a new truck: The 2015 GMC Sierra HD gets new sheetmetal, a new cab, and interior and infotainment systems that debuted on the light-duty 2014 Sierra 1500. A Sierra Double Cab with four conventional doors replaces last year's extended cab, and all are roomier. What's underneath isn't necessarily new, but evolutionary updating or proven components.  GMC Sierra HD heavy-duty pickups are well suited to real-world use and abuse. They can haul tons of brick and cement and tow the concrete pump, then turn around to be used for a night on the town or grocery shopping while the fifth-wheel's left in camp or the horses are in the corral. If your hauling is lighter and happens once or twice a year or you tow a bass boat or ski boat, then the 1500-series may be better suited. If your load is heavy, however, or you do a lot of towing, the Sierra HD is the ticket, especially with the di...

2016 Toyota Avalon Specs and Prices XLE 4dr Sedan

2016 Avalon New Car Test Drive

Introduction Toyota Avalon is among the best of the large sedans, competing closely with the highly ranked Chevrolet Impala. The current-generation was launched as a 2013 model, but it has been updated for 2016.  For 2016, Toyota Avalon is distinguished by a new, larger grille, new taillights, slimmer parking lights and turn signal lights, a new chrome accent on the rear bumper, and new wheel designs. The suspension on the 2016 Avalon XLE and Limited has been retuned for comfort, while the 2016 Avalon Touring model gets sportier settings.  Avalon is a satisfying car to drive and offers lively response. It's quiet and comfortable underway. It's an attractive car, sleek and neatly styled.  All models are equipped well and Avalon Limited models offer Lexus levels of luxury. The cabins are roomy, attractively designed and trimmed well with superb materials.  The standard 3.5-liter V6 is rated at 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of tor...

2016 Hyundai Genesis Specs and Prices 3.8 4dr Rear-wheel Drive Sedan

2016 Genesis New Car Test Drive

Introduction If the badge were missing, one might easily mistake the 2015 Hyundai Genesis for a European luxury sedan. All-new for the 2015 model year, the Genesis, already impressive in its previous incarnation, gets even better.  First introduced for the 2008 model year, the Hyundai Genesis sedan received much acclaim in the automotive press. It was refreshed for 2012 and is completely redesigned for 2015.  Size-wise, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan grows in length by only 0.2 inches, but the interior is roomier thanks to a wheelbase that's been stretched by nearly three inches, allowing for more room in the cabin and shortening overhangs for improved performance. It's longer and wider than other midsize sedans, and is technically classified by the EPA as a large vehicle. That's good news when it comes to space, but it also means more bulk.  Unlike most new versions of cars that boast lighter, more aerodynamic designs, the Genesis takes a d...

2016 BMW i8 Specs and Prices Base 2dr All-wheel Drive Coupe

2016 i8 New Car Test Drive

Introduction When car geeks encounter a rare automobile, they say they've seen a unicorn. The BMW i8, however, is a different animal. With its otherworldly design, wing-like doors and cutting-edge technology, we'd say this plug-in hybrid is a Pegasus, with bits of Tron and the Terminator thrown in for good measure.  The BMW i8 is like nothing else on the road, inside or out. It catches the attention of everyone it passes, with its low, wide stance, heavily sculpted lines and contrasting color schemes. Beneath its skin of aluminum, carbon fiber and thermoplastic is a lightweight passenger compartment made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), bolted to an aluminum shell that houses the i8's plug-in hybrid architecture.  Powering the BMW i8 is a unique hybrid system. In front, there's a 129-horsepower electric motor, the same used in BMW's i3 electric car. Power is sent through the front wheels via a two-stage automatic transmission....

2016 Lexus RC F Specs and Prices Base 2dr Rear-wheel Drive Coupe

2016 RC F New Car Test Drive

Introduction The Lexus RC is a sleek new sport coupe with eye-catching styling. Only available as a two-door, RC is based on a new rear-wheel-drive platform but is available with all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive generally offers sportier performance than front-wheel drive. An uber-powerful RC F performance model replaces the outgoing four-door IS-F as Lexus's sportiest vehicle.  Two models comprise the 2015 RC lineup: the Lexus RC 350, powered by Toyota's 3.5-liter V6 engine good for 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, and the low-volume, high-performance RC F, with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that cranks out an impressive 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are naturally aspirated; no turbocharged choices here, unlike some competitors.  Lexus also snubs the manual transmission for automatics only. The RC 350 rear-wheel-drive model and the RC F gets an 8-speed automatic, while the RC 350 with all-wheel drive is equi...

2016 Durango New Car Test Drive

Introduction The Dodge Durango's last redesign, for 2011, qualified as a wholesale advance on its predecessor. The current Durango offers a combination of traditional SUV ability with crossover-like comfort, quiet, and features.  For 2015, a Blacktop Package is newly available on SXT, Limited, and R/T models. For audio buffs, a new Beats by Dr. Dre system will become standard on the 2015 R/T and available for Citadel and Limited models. Red Nappa leather seating is newly available for R/T models. Also for 2015, the Rallye Appearance Package option has been expanded to Limited models as well as SXT, including the R/T's 20-inch wheels and monochromatic exterior. An SXT Plus package also is offered.  Every Durango has three-row seating, with second-row captain's chairs available in all but the base model.  Durango works best for those with varied needs: plenty of seats, good cargo capacity and hauling flexibility, and top-tier towing ...
