2016 Honda CR-V special edition

In 2014, the Honda CR-V received an extensive refresh that saw it get improved styling inside and out, a new engine and more features. For its 2016 model year, the compact Japanese crossover now offers buyers a new Special Edition model positioned above the base CR-V LX.

Compared to the LX, the Special Edition CR-V comes standard with larger 17-inch alloy wheels with an exclusive two tone finish, second-row and rear privacy glass, and a security system. Buyers have the option of either a front-wheel or all-wheel drive configuration.

Power comes from the same 2.4-liter inline-four Earth Dreams engine used by all other CRV models, which produces 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. (245 Nm) of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) allows the front-wheel drive model to return an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in city driving, 33 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg combined, while the AWD model gets 25 / 31 / 27.

The 2016 Honda CR-V Special Edition is priced at $24,395 in front-wheel drive guise and $25,695 with an AWD setup.

Is Alfa Romeo Giving Birth To A Baby SUV?

Blue Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV

Stelvio might be getting a little brother.

Alfa Romeo will reportedly release a brand-new crossover that slots below the Stelvio compact crossover.

Sources famaliar with the vehicle revealed to Greece’s that the model will ride on a model-specific version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the aforementioned Stelvio and the Giulia, meaning it will be rear-wheel drive or, optionally, all-wheel drive.

Power will likely come from a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and, as unlikely as it might be for the small crossover segment, possibly a V6.

A sub-Stelvio crossover was a centerpiece of the five-year product plan Alfa Romeo presented in June 2018, so this is more than just a rumor. In fact, previous reports claim it will share platforms with either the Jeep Renegade or Compass rather than with the Stelvio.

If designed and built right, the little Italian high-rider could become the company’s best-seller, and releasing it as quickly as possible would help the company reach its goal of selling 400,000 cars annually by 2022.

2020 GMC Acadia Refresh Brings Rugged AT4 Model, New Turbo Engine

Published

Updated, 2020 GMC Acadia Denali SUV, new look

The updates include a more aggressive look, a new turbo four, and a rugged new AT4 model.

GMC has given the Acadia a mid-cycle refresh that brings a revised exterior design, interior and tech enhancements, a new engine option, and an off-road-focused AT4 model.

On the outside, the 2020 GMC Acadia features a bolder grill flanked by rectangular headlights with C-shaped LED inserts, new-look rear lights and nicer 18- and 20-inch wheel designs that brings the overall design in line with GMC’s recent design language.

The interior has been enhanced by an electronic shifter that frees up real estate on the center console for more storage space and an updated infotainment system that the company says is “more intelligent and more intuitive” thanks to a higher-resolution eight-inch touchscreen, an easier to use interface, and improved voice recognition. Wireless charging for your phone is available, as are a head-up display system, a new HD rear camera, and a Rear Camera Mirror that replaces the rear-view mirror with a screen.

A new turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine joins the lineup for the 2020 model year and comes standard on the Acadia SLT and Denali models. Mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, it produces 230 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm and uses Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) to maximize fuel-efficiency.

The 2.5L four-cylinder and 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engines carry over from the 2019 model, with the latter now shifting through the same nine-speed automatic as the new turbo four instead of a six-speed automatic.

In response to the growing demand for rugged vehicles, GMC has expanded the Acadia lineup with a new AT4 model aimed at adventurous buyers. Like the Sierra AT4, the Acadia AT4 looks the part with a trim-specific grille with black chrome accents, plastic body cladding, 17-inch alloy wheels (20-inch alloys are optional), and a sporty dark interior with contrasting accents.

Lastly, the Acadia has received some suspension improvements that help with ride and handling. Front-wheel drive is still standard, while all-wheel drive is optional, though the Acadia AT4 is offered exclusively with all-wheel drive and the V6.

Made in Tennessee, the updated, 2020 GMC Acadia goes on sale in fall 2019. Do you like the changes General Motors made to it?

Kia’s quirky crossover joins the high-range electric vehicle group.

The EPA has given the 2020 Kia Soul EV a driving range of up to 243 miles (391 km) on a single charge, placing it in the same class as the Chevrolet Bolt, Tesla Model 3, Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV and Nissan LEAF e+, all of which get over 200 miles (322 km).
