Motortrend News Feed: Helicopter Drops 2019 Chevrolet Silverado on the Texas Motor Speedway

The Top Zones - Sat, 12/16/2017 - 22:05

Amidst the Chevy Truck Centennial celebrations down in Fort Worth, Texas, Chevrolet dramatically helicoptered-in the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado for a sneak peak ahead of its Detroit debut next month. Technical details are scant, but from the looks of things, this is the slimmest, most streamlined Silverado design to date.

Chevrolet is holding its cards close to its chest at the moment, but did give us a few key insights to the next-generation truck before whisking it away off-site. The preview truck wears the forthcoming Z71 Trailboss package, an off-road kit that likely adds all the rough-and-tumble goodies from past Z71s. Skidplates, aggressive all-terrain tires, bigger wheels, and darkened exterior accents are all likely part of the equation. Chevy did mention the Trail Boss designation adds a factory two-inch suspension lift.

In keeping up with the ultra-competitive segment, Chevy looks to offer more engine and transmission options than recent generations, likely including the new 10-speed automatic that can be found in the 2018 Tahoe and Suburban, alongside the existing 6.2-liter L86 V-8, currently putting down 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Expect a range of diesels and lower output powertrains as well.

Physically, the Silverado looks sleeker than ever before. There’s a fair bit of Colorado in the design, especially in the rear cabin area. It looks narrower, too—at least from out semi-distant viewing position. We didn’t get a chance to climb around the new truck, but we think it’s a handsome design.

It’s not yet known if the new Silverado incorporates aluminum to the same extent as the rival Ford F-150, but the automaker hinted at utilizing mixed materials throughout the truck. Chevy claims the new truck has a new alloy of high-strength steel for the base of the bed, leaving us to speculate on the rumors floating around regarding a bed lined with some new carbon composite material.

For now, we’ll have to make do with a few photos. Look for more information closer to the official debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado closer to its debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show next month.

Motortrend News Feed: All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado LT Trailboss Revealed

The Top Zones - Sat, 12/16/2017 - 21:18

This just in—the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado LT Trailboss was revealed at the Chevy Truck centennial event in Dallas, Texas.

The new Silverado LT Trailboss is one of eight 2019 Silverado models that will make their public debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Bow-Tie brass says the Trailboss, “integrates the off-road equipment of the Z71 package as well as a two-inch suspension lift. Unlike aftermarket lift kits, the Trailboss suspension is fully tested, validated and warrantied by Chevrolet.”

“Our owners’ passion for Chevrolet trucks is truly humbling,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America, and global head of Chevrolet in a statement.

“Many of our owners depend on their trucks for work and play, personalize their trucks in astonishing ways and pass their loyalty for Chevy Trucks down from generation to generation.

“For the Chevy Truck Centennial, we wanted to recognize the customers who have made Chevrolet part of their lives, and have them help kick off the next 100 years of Chevy Trucks.”

The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all-new from the ground up. Stay tuned for more photos and updates from our truckers on the scene at the Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas.

Motortrend News Feed: 1964 Porsche 911 Barn Find Now Parked at the Porsche Museum

The Top Zones - Sat, 12/16/2017 - 17:38

Here’s a rare bird we wish was parked inside our garage—a Signal Red 1964 Porsche 901/911. The Porsche 356 successor became the 911 because of a trademark dispute with Peugeot.

This particular 901 was built in October of 1964 as one of the first series-production models—number 57 to be exact. Because of the dispute, all of the 901s were renamed and later sold as 911s.

Number 57 was discovered nearly a half a century later in a Brandenburg, Germany barn by a TV crew in 2014. The Porsche Museum needed one for its collection and bought it for about $126,000. It spent the next three years bringing the rust bucket back to its original condition.

According to the museum, genuine body parts from a different vehicle were used to restore this classic coupe.

When it was discovered, its front wings were missing, the interior was in shambles, and its brakes and six-cylinder engine were seized.

“Many of the features only included in the very first models have been preserved in the car,” said Kuno Werner, Porsche Museum workshop head, in a statement.

For example, a leather sleeve around the shift lever was only installed in this form in the 901s. One of the hardest parts to replicate was the ashtray—sadly, the chrome-plated cigar holder had rusted away.

Parts and fragments from a 1965 911 donor vehicle were used instead of simply replacing them and over 50 percent of the original sheet metal was saved, which explains the three-year restoration progress. The results are stunning and the car looks incredible.

If you’d like to see the classic coupe in the flesh, it’s on display at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart now through April 18, 2018.

Motortrend News Feed: 2017 Honda CR-V Touring AWD Long-Term Update 3: Assessing the CR-V’s CVT and Handling

The Top Zones - Sat, 12/16/2017 - 09:00

Fresh off being named the 2018 Motor Trend SUV of the Year and with many more miles in the pilot’s seat on roads more stimulating than L.A. freeways, it’s clear that Honda has developed the CR-V’s chassis and steering to exhibit lots of confidence on scenic back roads and winding country highways.

On such roads the CR-V tracks straight over bumps, and although the ride is tightly controlled, the impact harshness is concealed well. The vehicle corners surprisingly level and exhibits poise in tight, speedy turns. The steering, albeit on the light side, is precise and controlled. Coupled with a steady and sorted chassis, the steering also provides a planted and controlled path through the corners. The CR-V bends nicely into turns and demonstrates well-behaved body control. This is vehicle handling that is far from boring—it is neutral and balanced and makes the CR-V more fun to drive than it needs to be.

Perhaps even more notable than the handling is the CR-V’s transmission. Kept in drive, the transmission keeps rpm low, slighty numbing throttle response yet serving up good fuel economy. However, once shifted to Sport, responsiveness becomes snappier, making the CR-V more entertaining to zip around in as it keeps the engine in the powerband. Impressively, the transmission will hold at the power peak during hard acceleration instead of wave forming like some CVTs are prone to do. Furthermore, the CVT will continually find the right ratio during hill climbs, allowing it to maintain a set speed. Of course the problem with having such a good CVT is that is makes the absence of paddle shifters all the more noticeable. Grabbing a lower gear means having to shift to S or L with the stalk. Doing so results in a robust “thunk” as the shifter finds its next detent. Moving the shifter south is an easy step, but the travel back toward “D” does not always go smoothly as it sometimes skips past the “D” detent and ends up in neutral. If this is followed by any sort of throttle application, the result is an unexpected rev of the engine and a frustrating glance at the gear selector.

Motortrend News Feed: Refreshing or Revolting: McLaren Senna vs. P1 GTR

The Top Zones - Sat, 12/16/2017 - 01:15

Last weekend, McLaren revealed the next entry in its Ultimate Series of hypercars. Though it wasn’t the hybrid hypercar successor to the mighty P1 we were expecting, the McLaren Senna is just as extreme, and might even top the P1’s on-track performance. That’s because the Senna was designed “to be the ultimate McLaren track-concentrated car for the road.” That last bit is important because the Senna isn’t a track-only car like the P1 GTR. Despite their different missions, specs, and price points, we can still compare the two Ultimate Series track specials when it comes to styling.

From just about every angle, the two cars look vastly different from on another. The P1 GTR benefits from the smooth, sculpted lines of the standard P1, but features race car bits like a larger front splitter, canards on the front bumper, a more prominent rear diffuser, and a large stanchioned rear wing. Despite a few similarities to the 720S, the Senna’s exterior is completely bespoke. Downforce and aerodynamic balance were McLaren’s primary goals when designing the Senna, and the resulting shape may not be pretty to all, but it’s said to be effective at its job.

Up front, the Senna has a long front overhang with recessed headlights underlined by LED accents. There are also large ducts in the hood and a carbon-fiber front splitter that extends beyond the fenders. The P1 GTR has a shorter front overhang but a similarly large carbon-fiber splitter and hood vents.

From the side, there’s a lot going on with the Senna’s bodywork. Even McLaren admits “you cannot follow a single line from the front to the rear without it passing through a functional air intake or vent.” There’s a periscope intake scoop mounted where the roofline begins to slope, and there’s no rear quarter window—only cut lines in the bodywork where one should be. The doors can be optioned with clear glass inserts in place of carbon fiber to show off your legs, and the side windows are sectioned into two pieces much like a DeLorean DMC-12 or Subaru SVX. Both cars have massive rear wings, but the Senna’s is reverse-mounted and extends from just behind the rear axle, as opposed to the P1 GTR which mounts its wing at the very back.

At the rear, both cars have slim taillights and center-exit exhausts, but the Senna has three exhaust tips arranged in a triangle shape within a hexagonal design element. You can also see the Senna’s stepped louvers just below the wing, which direct airflow to the sides of the body. The Senna’s diffuser also has more fins than the P1 GTR’s simpler unit. The mechanicals of the P1 GTR are more exposed from the rear compared to the Senna, which only has its transaxle peeking through.

McLaren gave the interiors of both cars a generous amount of exposed carbon fiber, but the P1 GTR’s cabin just screams “race car” with its deleted passenger seat, driver’s-side racing bucket, yoke-style steering wheel, and floor-mounted fire extinguisher. The Senna’s cockpit is minimalist, but still resembles the interiors of McLaren’s road cars for the most part.

Has McLaren done the revered Senna name justice with this car’s design? Check out all the photos and decide for yourself.

Motortrend News Feed: Christmas Decorations Hurt Fuel Economy More Than You Might Think

The Top Zones - Fri, 12/15/2017 - 23:00

Most Christmas-related automotive content is cheesy at best. At least half the time, it’s cringe-worthy, and the farther a company stretches to make the tie-in work, the more painful it is to sit through. But every once in a while, one of these videos ends up actually being funny or informative. The latest video from GMC is the latter.

In an ad to highlight the new Terrain‘s more slippery shape, GMC asks the question, “How do Christmas decorations affect gas mileage?” Even if people decorating their cars are more concerned with holiday cheer than maximizing fuel economy, it’s at least an interesting premise. Plus, the more informed people are, the better they can be at making decisions.

After testing different decorations in a wind tunnel, GMC found that a wreath won’t affect your fuel economy at all, but reindeer antlers and a red nose each come with a one-mile-per-gallon penalty. Driving around with a large bow on your roof, however, reduces fuel economy by about three miles per gallon. As for a roof-mounted Christmas tree, the video doesn’t say how much it reduces fuel economy, but it did say drag nearly doubles.

In the words of General Motors’ aerodynamics performance engineer Joel Ruschman, if you’re concerned about gas mileage but feeling festive, “Decorate your house. Don’t decorate your car.”

This video does raise other questions, however. For example, what kind of effect would a roof-mounted Menorah have? And what about those eyelashes people put on their Beetles? Unless GMC tests those, the world may never know.

Motortrend News Feed: Alpine A110 Enters Production in Dieppe, France

The Top Zones - Fri, 12/15/2017 - 20:45

Renault inaugurated the Alpine A110 production line earlier this week in Dieppe, northern France. Dieppe is the home of the Alpine brand and is where the original A110 Berlinette was built nearly 50 years ago.

The factory was created in 1969 by Jean Redele, founder of the Alpine brand. Over the past few years, the Dieppe plant has received investments totaling more than 35 million euros (roughly $41 million). As part of the modernization process, the plant’s paint shop received new robots for sanding and cleaning vehicles. Most importantly, the factory can accommodate production of the Alpine A110’s all-aluminum body and chassis. The facility is now in line with the Renault Alliance’s best practices, the automaker says.

The Dieppe plant has added 151 new staff members over the past two years, an increase of 60 percent from previous levels. Each employee has been given four weeks of training to prepare for the production of the new Alpine.

The Alpine A110 was one of our favorite cars to debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Equipped with a 1.8-liter aluminum block inline-four mounted transversely behind the cabin, it produces 250 hp. That should be plenty of power to motivate this rear-wheel-drive coupe weighing less than 2,400 pounds. The A110 comes paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Sadly, we expect this Porsche 718 Cayman competitor to remain forbidden fruit here in the U.S.

Motortrend News Feed: Aston Martin Considers Return of V12 Vantage

The Top Zones - Fri, 12/15/2017 - 19:30

Aston Martin debuted a new Vantage with a twin-turbo V-8 packing 503 hp last month. But those who miss the Vantage’s bigger powerplant can still hold out hope for a revival.

Speaking with Autocar, CEO Andy Palmer said the automaker will think about bringing back a V-12 option. “The V-12 is a question we’ll consider, but there has been no decision yet,” Palmer said.

It’s technically possible to fit a V-12 under the hood of the new Vantage, Palmer said, given that the engine bay was patterned after the DB11, which offers a V-12. No big modifications would need to be made to accommodate a V-12, he also noted.

But weight remains a key concern. “We have to consider the character of the new Vantage. This is our rebel, a really sporty car that stands out for its handling. The V-12 has many great attributes, but the extra weight would bring some differences in character that we’d need to consider,” Palmer cautioned. The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage weighs around 3,400 pounds and can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

Aston Martin has confirmed it will offer a Vantage roadster and a manual V-8 Vantage. These models will launch between the next 18 months and two years. The automaker is in the middle of rolling out a host of new products within the next several years, including a DBX crossover and sedans that will wear the Lagonda badge.

Motortrend News Feed: Toyota Gazoo Racing Teases the GR Super Sport Concept

The Top Zones - Fri, 12/15/2017 - 18:45

A few months ago, Toyota officially launched a new sporty sub-brand, the GR Sport Series, in Japan. Built in partnership with Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s motorsports division, the GR Sport Series is supposed to inject a much-needed dose of fun into Toyota’s mostly dull lineup. But at next year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, we’ll get to see something much more exciting than the GR-tuned Yaris GRMN.

Toyota released a teaser image today showing what looks like a Le Mans prototype race car. Toyota calls it the GR Super Sport Concept, and the short press release that accompanied the image suggests that this isn’t the brand’s next LMP car. Instead, it appears to be an LMP-inspired street car.

Details are extremely scarce at the moment, but by calling the GR Super Sport Concept “a concept car [that] originate[d] from participation in the WEC,” Toyota makes it sound like this Le Mans-inspired concept is something other than an actual race car. The next line explains that it’s meant to be “one example of how technological feedback acquired through motorsports activities is incorporated.”

The release doesn’t say what it will be incorporated into, and it doesn’t help that it appears to be the English language version of a release originally written in Japanese, but we’d be willing to bet Toyota means this is a street-legal concept. Unfortunately, we won’t know whether or not Toyota and Gazoo Racing intend to actually build any production versions of the GR Super Sport Concept until the car officially debuts later next month at Tokyo Auto Salon.

Considering the fact that we’re talking about Toyota here, we’re betting it stays a concept, but you never know. Who would have thought Toyota would ever sell a 207-hp rally-inspired Yaris?

Motortrend News Feed: 2017 Lincoln Continental Black Label Interior Review

The Top Zones - Fri, 12/15/2017 - 09:00

Some consumers’ only experience with Lincoln is from the back seat of a chauffeur-driven airport shuttle, but the brand has been on a multiyear effort to change that. The MKS-replacing 2017 Lincoln Continental sedan is part of the plan to shift perception amongst those who might actually give a different luxury brand a change. To get their attention, Lincoln offers the Continental with three engines and a number of upscale options, and on the high-end Black Label trim, three available interior color schemes. We spent some quality time with a 400-hp, all-wheel-drive Continental to see how much of its $79,780 as-tested price tag is earned on the inside.

Feels Good

Generally, the materials quality inside our near-$80,000 Continental tester was very good. The Black Label model, which also includes free car washes, an annual detail, and four years or 50,000 miles of complimentary maintenance, features an Alcantara headliner and Venetian leather with perforations that make the seats look like they have a repeating Lincoln star pattern. There’s also a leather or leatherlike pad on the side of the center console where your knee might rest. Even if the material itself could be softer, it looks and feels better than the alternative, which is just a hard black panel in other cars.

Move it Up!

Where the Continental loses some of its premium appeal is its central screen. The screen is only 8.0 inches, which would be adequate in an MKZ or compact luxury crossover but not so much on an $80,000 car. The screen wouldn’t look as small if it were tilted back for better visibility, filled out more of the center stack between the buttons on either side or, better yet, were pushed to the very top of the dash. Some won’t take any issue with the Continental’s screen size or placement, but spend some time inside the Genesis G90 or a higher-trim Lexus or BMW sedan, and you’ll see what a difference a bigger screen or a better placement can make.

Digitally Stylish, But…

The Continental features a completely digital instrument cluster, a great option that makes the car feel more contemporary. Its gold accent color reminded Motor Trend en Español editor Miguel Cortina of midcentury modern design. The clean, serifless font is cool, too. Although the display is appreciated, I wish it would fill out more of the entire instrument cluster area instead of leaving a decent amount of surrounding black plastic.

Shall I Meet You at the Chalet?

If you’re willing to spend $80,000 on a brand that’s not as well-respected as the usual names, the Black Label trim’s appeal centers on the three interior color themes. Our tester was outfitted in the Chalet style, which comes with Alpine and Espresso leather. I don’t normally like leather in such a light shade of beige, but I absolutely loved the two-tone steering wheel. It’s a great detail, though another editor and I were really intrigued by the Rhapsody Blue theme that’s also available. The third option on Continental Black Labels is the Thoroughbred theme, which combines saddle- and black-colored accents. None of these color schemes will fix the size or placement of that center-stack screen, but having those interior color options adds to the Continental’s luxury credentials.

Ahhhh … But What’s That Noise?

The Continental also makes available a pair of 30-way power seats with a massaging function for $1,500. Having the ability to customize the seats so much is fantastic, as is the fact that the massage, heating, and ventilating functions have one-touch controls—surprisingly, that’s not the case for every car in this class. What would make this feature more of a value is if the massagers were quieter. On a near-$80,000 diesel-powered Ford F-250 King Ranch truck, you might not be able to hear the buzzing of a massaging seat, but it’s far more obvious on a luxury sedan.

What caused us a little concern about the 30-way seats is the fact that more than one editor noticed that the ones on our tester creaked a little. It’s unclear if this issue is unique to our test car.

Where’d You Hide My Handles?

The Continental’s exterior design has divided our staff. Where some see “anonymous styling,” others find the exterior design—especially with the Black Label’s 20-inch wheels—striking. It’s not often you can say your car offers a feature that is truly unique, but the Continental hides all four of its door handles on the bottom of the side window’s chrome trim. It’s a neat detail that, from the inside, requires you to hit a button before pushing the door open instead of pulling a door handle. Dip your fingers into the depressed area on the door that helps you close the door, and you’ll feel a high-quality, out-of-sight soft material.

Push It

As with other Lincolns, the Continental lacks a traditional gear selector stalk. Instead, after you press the start button, you’ll find buttons to the left of the center-stack screen to engage park, reverse, neutral, drive, or a sport mode. This system won’t be for everyone, and not having a gear stalk means you don’t have something to wrap your right hand around when you’re at a long red light or waiting in a loading zone.

The advantage of shifting the transmission controls to the center stack is increasing storage space in the center console, including a deep spot at the base of the center stack where you can charge your phone. One other helpful detail is that the HVAC and some audio controls are located on a slanted plane that feels more natural than having to tilt your hand to reach a knob or button on a nearly vertical plane, as in many other cars.

If You Press Them, Nothing Will Happen

The Lincoln Continental is offered with a great variety of options, and that’s a good thing. One industry-wide problem pops up sometimes when you don’t have a loaded version of a car that allows so much room for options-customization. In the Lincoln’s case, if you have a Continental without the 360-degree camera system or the “look what I can do” semi-automatic parking system, two buttons on the right side of the central screen go blank (our tester with the Technology package had those options), serving as a regular reminder that your car isn’t completely loaded.

Spread Out

The Continental’s rear seat is reasonably spacious, especially if you’re more accustomed to the cabin of the smaller MKZ sedan. Our Black Label model was equipped with a $4,300 executive rear-seat package that adds heated and ventilated seats, controls for the rear sunshade, four-way power lumbar, and massaging seats that can recline, too. There’s also a giant center armrest with controls, limited audio controls, a small info screen, two USBs, and cupholders. One editor found that the cupholders felt cheap, and we wish the two rear USBs were located in a more convenient spot in the center armrest instead of below the central rear air vents.


How you perceive the interior of a nearly $80,000 Lincoln depends on what brand loyalties you currently have. If you’ve been inside MKS or MKZ sedans recently but want something richer, the Continental will impress. Lincoln is carving out its own style niche among luxury cars, and we like what we see in the loaded Black Label car. If Lincoln can perfect more of the details, the Continental can be even more of a threat. As it is, a $79,780 Continental Black Label feels special and different, and it comes close to living up to its price tag.
