Ram Texas Ranger concept celebrates famous lawmen03/25/2015
Ram is celebrating the legendary Texas Ranger lawmen with its newest concept pickup. The brand unveiled the themed truck on March 25 to promote its partnership with the agency and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.
The pickup was introduced by Ram Truck president and CEO Bob Hegbloom at the 2015 Dallas Auto Show.
“The Ram team developed this commemorative concept truck in order to further highlight our relationship with the Texas Rangers and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Hegbloom. “Although Rangers are well-known horsemen, today Texans drive more pickups than drivers in any other state in the country.”
The Ram Texas Ranger edition gets special badges, designed to represent the Mexican five-peso coins that the badges were originally created from. The five-pointed emblems are mounted to the both side fenders and on the truck’s tailgate. The 20-inch wheels also get a milled Ranger center cap.
The Texas Ranger concept -- just a concept for now --
Kia Soul EV heading to Georgia, Washington, Texas, Oregon and Hawaii03/25/2015
The quirky Kia Soul EV is going on sale in Georgia, Texas, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii. They will join California as states that both have enough infrastructure for electric vehicles and have shown consumer demand. Soul EV-authorized dealer locations will be announced later this year.
“From the inception of the Soul EV program, Kia’s sales strategy has been progressive and pragmatic,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “With the level of demand and supporting infrastructure in the state, California was a natural place to start, but we’ve been carefully studying other markets. Between consumer reaction to the Soul EV and growing infrastructure programs in these five states, this is a logical -- and exciting -- next step in our rollout plan.”
To refresh, the front-wheel-drive Soul uses an 81.4-kW electric motor produ
2015 Nissan Rogue SV AWD snowpocalypse drive review03/25/2015
What is it?
Completely redesigned for 2014 and now in its second generation, the Nissan Rogue is the company's compact SUV offering. Positioned below the Murano, the Rogue is designed to combine a spacious and useful interior with soft-touch materials and an affordable starting price that is meant to let it take on longer-serving offerings from other automakers in this segment.
Power in the Rogue comes courtesy of a 2.5-liter inline-four connected to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission sending power to the front or to all four wheels. This engine produces 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque -- a carryover from the outgoing model -- with the latest version of the CVT achieving a 40 percent reduction in friction loss, as well as gaining a wider gear ratio and greater efficiency compared to earlier units. In front wheel drive form, the Rogue returns fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, for a combined rating of 28 mpg. In all-wheel drive form, the small SUV is rated at 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, for an identical combined rating of 28 mpg.
2015 Chevrolet Silverado High Country review notes03/25/2015
ROAD TEST EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: Things are better in High Country… at least if you prefer your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck to be packed with some extra standard features, additional chrome exterior jewelry, and an exclusive saddle-brown interior color scheme. When we awarded the Chevy Silverado our Best of the Best Truck award for 2014, we had a High Country model for testing. A year later and after spending a couple of days with another example, it’s pretty to easy to see why we gave this truck the nod.
A couple of weeks ago, we had a new Ford F-150 in the office, and it was a nice truck. The aluminum body panels to save weight are big news for the Ford, but in terms of refinement in the ride quality and the interior, it wasn’t a quantum leap ahead of the old truck. Instead it just felt like an update with small improvements. It was familiar and felt like an F-series truck, which isn’t a bad thing, because the Ford remains the sales king in the segment.
