This is probably the 2021 Ford Bronco before you’re supposed to see it

Spring may have sprung early for Ford Bronco fans.

Images purported to be the yet to be revealed all-new SUV have been posted to the Bronco6g.com fan forum.

The photos show both the two-door and four-door versions of the off-road truck, which is based on the same frame as the Ford Ranger. The site took the liberty of making a few alterations in Photoshop to show the vehicle in different colors and configurations.

If authentic, the vehicles appear to combine styling elements from past Bronco generations into a Jeep Wrangler-sized package that features a removable roof and soft-top.

Ford hasn’t commented on the photos, but previously announced plans for an official unveiling of the Bronco sometime this spring. A Bronco R racing truck entered in last year’s Baja 1000s was said to be based on the upcoming SUV and features the same kick in its beltline behind the front door window as the alleged production trucks.

Additional photos that apparently showed the rear portion of two Broncos with their roofs removed, exposing their roll cages, were posted to the website last week, but were later taken down.

On Monday, a separate website called BroncoSportForum.com published images of a Bronco-inspired crossover Ford also has in the works, which may be called the Bronco Sport.

Here’s how much the 2021 Genesis GV80 costs

How much does “New Luxury” go for? Not as much as the old stuff, apparently.

The upcoming Genesis GV80 three-row SUV that was featured in a Super Bowl ad staring John Legend and Chrissy Teigen will have a starting price of $49,925 when it goes on sale this summer. That undercuts competitors like the Cadillac XT6, Lincoln Aviator and Audi Q7 by several thousand dollars.

The entry-level GV80 comes with rear-wheel-drive and a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, while an all-wheel-drive model with a 375 hp V6-powered starts at $60,175 and can be optioned up to over $71,975 with features like massaging seats, a 21-speaker audio system and remote parking.

According to two reports, Legend and Teigen’s commercial caused a bigger spike in online interest for Genesis than any of the other car commercials that ran during the game did for their brands, including GMC’s HUMMER EV reveal and Jeep’s “Groundhog Day” spot starring Bill Murray.

The Hyundai-owned automaker also topped the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability study this year, the first time it was eligible for the list.

The 2021 Ford Bronco spotted with its top popped

Photos of the upcoming Ford Bronco apparently taken in secret inside a Ford facility have revealed some of its styling and a removable top.

The images were originally posted to Bronco6G.com and removed, but not before they spread across the web.

The shots only show the rear portion of a two-door and four-door Bronco, but reveal its roll bar, which has a similar layout to the Jeep Wrangler’s with an additional vertical pillar behind the rear door.

The trucks seen also feature rounded rear wheel arches, as seen on recent prototypes caught testing, rather than the flat tops featured on the original Bronco and recently unveiled Bronco R race truck, which is based on the all-new model.

Test drive: The 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel is ready to get dirty

This long-haul rock crawler’s been a long time coming.

2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel

The 2020 model is the first Jeep Wrangler available in the U.S. with a diesel engine, which a hardcore segment of the brand’s fan base has been asking the company to build since the CJ days.

Why? How about V8-style grunt combined with fuel economy that’s better than a four-cylinder’s? Not a bad combination for a vehicle meant to be driven off the beaten path.

2020 Jeep® Wrangler 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine

The Wrangler features the latest version of Fiat Chrysler’s ubiquitous EcoDiesel turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, which has been seen in the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The engine puts out 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque and has been reconfigured to fit inside the Wrangler’s engine bay without trading off any ground clearance or water wading capabilities.

2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel

Jeep is offering the engine across the Wrangler trims, starting at $37,795 for a Sport, but only in four-door Unlimiteds with 8-speed automatic transmissions and part-time four-wheel-drive — so the Sahara’s street-focused full-time system is off the table for now.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Sahara EcoDiesel

The price premium over the turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 gasoline powertrain options ranges from $4,500 to $2,750, depending on the model. With the four-cylinder motors checking in at 270 hp and 295 lb-ft and the V6s at 285 hp and 260 lb-ft, the EcoDiesel’s torque bonus is substantial.

2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel

Hand in hand with that comes an EPA efficiency rating of 29 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg combined, which compares to 22/21 mpg for the four-cylinder engines and 22/20 mpg for the V6s, despite the diesel’s weight penalty of about 400 pounds. Those are huge improvements that unfortunately won’t save you any money at the pump due to the higher price of diesel. On the bright side, it won’t cost you any more, but you do have fill it with diesel exhaust fluid every 10,000 miles or so.

Due to packaging constraints, the main fuel tank can only hold 18.3 gallons, compared to 21.5 for the gas trucks, so the overall range isn’t as epic as it could be. Nevertheless, the Wrangler EcoDiesel can go up to 530 miles between stops, which will get you from Salt Lake City to Moab and back with some go juice left over to play on the rocks with.

2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel

I saw over 30 mpg in my Sahara tester, and the motor seemed a little smoother than the last one I tried in a Ram 1500, if not quieter. With their convertible tops, removable doors and overall utilitarian bent, Wranglers aren’t exactly known for being soundproof and that’s definitely the case with the diesel under the hood.

The Wrangler’s maximum tow rating remains 3,500 pounds with the diesel, but you should have a much easier time hauling that much weight than with any of the gas trucks. The engine pulls like mule team and is so strong down low that you can practically idle up steep, rocky ridgeline trails.

Jeep figures the EcoDiesel will make up about 10 percent of sales, which is about where it is in the Ram 1500. It may not be for everyone, but it’s exactly what fans have been hoping it would be all these years.

Here’s when the 2021 Ford Bronco will be revealed

The rebooted Ford Bronco may be coming out of the gate next month, but it will be a while before you can ride one home.

Ford dealers attending this year’s NADA Show in Las Vegas were told the all-new SUV will be revealed at an event sometime in March, but won’t be on sale until calendar year 2021, according to Automotive News. Ford has confirmed that the Bronco would debut this spring, but has not commented on the new report.

The new Bronco will be built alongside the Ranger in Michigan on a modified version of the pickup’s frame. Photos of camouflaged prototypes caught while being tested suggest it will have a removable roof, solid rear axle, front independent suspension and boxy styling inspired by the original that was previewed on the Bronco R race truck that competed in last year’s Baja 1000.

The dealers were also told that the previously announced “baby” Bronco crossover will be called the Bronco Sport and will be unveiled in April. The compact SUV will be based on the Ford Escape, but will offer more rugged styling and some off-road capability when it goes on sale later this year.

Tesla recalling 15K Model X SUVs with potential power steering issue, updates similar recall for 123K Model S sedans

Tesla is recalling 15,000 Model X SUVs to replace a part that could lead to power steering failure.

The automaker said that the bolts connecting the power steering component to the steering gear can corrode and fracture, leading to the loss of power assist. No accidents or injuries related to the issue have been reported.

The recall affects vehicles built before mid-October 2016. Tesla will replace the bolts and apply a corrosion-resistance sealant to the new parts.

Tesla also modified a previous recall first issued in March 2018 that covers 123,000 Model S sedans with a similar issue. At the time, Tesla said the Model X and Model 3 were not affected by the problem.

Here’s how much the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe costs

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is offering a lot of improvements for just a little more money … or less.

The all-new full-size SUV will have the same starting price as the outgoing 2020 model, which recently got a mid-year $1,000 bump compared to the 2019 trucks.

The base price is $50,250 for Tahoe LS, while the LT is $800 less than the 2019 at $55,095 and the luxurious Premier drops $100 to $63,895. Pricing for the Sport RST, off-road Z51 and top of the line High Country trims have not yet been released.

The new Tahoe gains an independent rear suspension for improved ride quality and interior space. Two V8 engines will be offered across the lineup, along with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-six-cylinder. Computer-controlled shock absorbers and an adjustable air suspension will be offered on some models.

A Chevrolet spokesperson told Automotive News that the larger Suburban models will be priced roughly $2,700 more than comparable Tahoes.

GM confirms return of HUMMER name on all-electric truck to be sold by GMC

HUMMER is coming back … and it’s a shocker in more ways than one.

Westlake Legal Group Sequence-05 GM confirms return of HUMMER name on all-electric truck to be sold by GMC Gary Gastelu fox-news/auto/style/trucks fox-news/auto/style/suv fox-news/auto/style/pickups fox-news/auto/make/gmc fox-news/auto/make/general-motors fox-news/auto/attributes/electric fox news fnc/auto fnc article 063f867e-3b05-5131-8c7d-b8ed57aad2fa

General Motors has confirmed that it is dusting off the decade-dormant brand name for a battery-powered monster truck called the GMC HUMMER EV. The all-electric vehicle will be sold through GMC, rather than a rebooted standalone HUMMER division, and is set to be the most powerful vehicle GM has ever produced.

Westlake Legal Group h2-1 GM confirms return of HUMMER name on all-electric truck to be sold by GMC Gary Gastelu fox-news/auto/style/trucks fox-news/auto/style/suv fox-news/auto/style/pickups fox-news/auto/make/gmc fox-news/auto/make/general-motors fox-news/auto/attributes/electric fox news fnc/auto fnc article 063f867e-3b05-5131-8c7d-b8ed57aad2fa

(The full-size HUMMER H2 was the brand’s signature model.)

GMC says the truck features an all-wheel-drive electric powertrain with 1,000 hp and 11,500 lb-ft of torque that can accelerate it to 60 mph in just 3 seconds, which would rival the performance of Tesla’s upcoming Cybertruck.

The torque figure quoted is likely measured at the wheels rather than directly from the motors, which accounts for the unusually high number compared to typical trucks. While an exact conversion can’t be calculated without additional technical information, it could equate to roughly 1,000 lb-ft using conventional methodology, which is more than the strongest 2020 GMC Sierra HD offers today.

The HUMMER EV will be featured in a Super Bowl advertisement starting LeBron James that GMC is teasing with the release of three short clips with a “Quiet Revolution” theme.

James’ mother bought him a new HUMMER H2 when he was a senior in high school, so he has a connection to the brand.

GMC hasn’t said if the truck is a pickup or an SUV but has confirmed it will be built at the Detroit-Hamtramck factory that GM has earmarked for electric vehicle production starting in Fall 2021. The single, shadowy image released of the front of the vehicle shows that it features a stylized take on HUMMER’s familiar seven-slot grille design with a full-width light bar embedded in it. Three amber marker lights can be seen on the roof that are similar to those on the HUMMER H2, which suggests the EV will be a huge and possibly medium-duty class truck.

HUMMER was mothballed in 2010 following a short-lived, but widespread anti-SUV movement fueled by a spike in gas prices, the Obama administration’s “Cash for Clunkers” program and GM’s bankruptcy. However, a buyer couldn’t be found so the automaker retained ownership of the brand name. A full reveal of the new vehicle is scheduled for May 20, but it won’t be the first all-electric HUMMER that’s ever been made.

What’s old is going to be very new in 2020, as America’s legacy automakers reboot classic models to keep up with the times and the new kids on the block. Here are a few of the top cars and trucks to look for throughout the year.

CHEVROLET CORVETTE STINGRAY

If you can’t beat them … Chevrolet turned the Corvette into a mid-engine sports car to take its performance and style to the next level in order to compete with the world’s top sports cars and it’s already a success. The entire first-year run of Stingrays, starting at $59,995, is essentially sold out, and it doesn’t even enter production until February. Despite the radical redesign, the Corvette is powered by a good old American 6.2-liter pushrod V8 and has enough room in the trunk behind it for two golf bags.

CHEVROLET TAHOE/SILVERADO

…and GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade. GM’s big SUVs are all-new and for the first time feature independent rear suspensions for improved ride comfort and handling. It’s not as big of a change as the Corvette’s engine swap, but it’s an important one as GM looks to defend its dominant position in the full-size utility vehicle segment against the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, both of which have had an independent suspension for years. And just in case it’s not enough, GM is adding adjustable air springs and a diesel engine to the options mix.

FORD MUSTANG MACH-E

Ford risked committing double blasphemy by putting the Mustang name on a utility vehicle powered by batteries in the hopes that the equine brand equity will help get its electric vehicle push off on the right hoof. The Mach-E is the first of dozens of electric models on the way in the coming years and was designed to blend practicality and performance in a package that can go up to 300 miles per charge.

FORD BRONCO

The 2021 Ford Bronco has already been partially unveiled as a racing truck that competed in but didn’t finish the Baja 1000, and the production truck is set to debut in the spring with styling inspired by the 1966 original. The Michigan-made SUV will be built on the same frame as the Ford Ranger pickup and is expected to feature a removable roof and an extreme 4×4 drivetrain that should make it a match for the Jeep Wrangler in the rough stuff.

MYSTERY THREE-ROW JEEP SUV

Jeep is working on a full-size three-row Wagoneer for 2021, but has a smaller seven-passenger model on the way before then. Its name and technical details have not been revealed, but it is expected to be similar to the Grand Cherokee.and will be the brand’s first three-row vehicle for sale in the U.S. since the Commander was discontinued a decade ago.

TESLA MODEL Y

Tesla’s Cybertruck may have gotten the headlines this year, but the Model Y trucklet will be the next new model it puts on sale. The compact utility vehicle is based on the Model 3 sedan and equipped with a battery pack that’s good for 300 miles per charge in the $48,000 Long Range rear-wheel-drive version that will be the most affordable Model Y when it enters production mid-year.

RIVIAN R1T

Startup electric truck company Rivian raised nearly $3 billion from the likes of Amazon, Ford, Cox Automotive and T. Rowe Price in 2019 and is set to launch its first battery-powered pickup by the end of 2020. The luxurious midsize R1T has a starting price of $69,000 and comes with an adjustable air suspension system, four-motor all-wheel-drive and the ability to spin in place like a tank. Top models will offer 400 miles of range, 750 hp, 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.0 seconds and a max tow rating of 11,000 pounds.

Test drive: The 2020 GMC Acadia AT4 is an off-roadish SUV

The GMC Acadia may have been updated for 2020 with bolder styling inspired by GMC’s big trucks, but it’s still very much a crossover. The $30,995 midsize SUV shares a front-wheel-drive platform with the similarly-sized Cadillac XT6 and Chevrolet Blazer that’s primarily aimed at on-road performance.

Along with a bigger, boxier grille, the midsize Acadia now offers a selection of three engines across the model lineup that adds a 230 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder to the previous edition’s 193 hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 310 hp 3.6-liter V6, the latter two available with all-wheel-drive.

They’re all matched with a 9-speed automatic transmission that’s controlled by a pushbutton gear selector on a redesigned dashboard. It works well as long as you don’t try to use it to change gears with your outstretched arm and index finger while driving down a bumpy road, which one Acadia model is capable of doing pretty well.

The Acadia AT4 starts at $43,395 and is the latest edition to GMC’s growing AT4 sub-brand, which signifies All Terrain and Four-Wheel-Drive. Along with a set of 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires it gets the V6 engine, blacked-out trim, AT4 logos and underfloor storage in the very large cargo area that can be replaced with a third row of seats. (Even if it’s not, you still get cupholders back there.)

The changes give the Acadia AT4 a very tough look, but with just 7.2 inches of ground clearance it comes up short as a rock-crawling off-roader like some Jeep Grand Cherokees are. Nevertheless, the fat tires are unflustered by deep ruts and the Acadia AT4 feels stiff as a steel girder when you hit them.

Potholed city streets don’t stand a chance, yet the ride remains well-mannered and just about perfect on smooth pavement where there is surprisingly little noise from the chunky treads. Unique among Acadias, the AT4 also features a torque-vectoring rear differential that uses clutches to direct power to the outside wheel in a curve and helps rotate the vehicle nicely on slippery stuff. Its maximum tow rating checks in at 4,000 pounds.

While the AT4 can be equipped with automatic emergency brakes, a blind-spot warning system, parking sensors and a seat that vibrates so you can mute all of the beeps that the safety systems would otherwise generate, radar adaptive cruise control is reserved for the top of the line, luxurious Denali trim.

That’s unfortunate because the AT4 is an otherwise great all-around, if not truly all-terrain vehicle.
