2019 LINCOLN MKX REDESIGN, RELEASE DATEThe 2nd generation of the MKX has been released a couple of years back and despite its drawbacks, it still managed to sell better than its predecessor. However, the car is not doing as well as it should and in order to change that it seems an update is on its way. This is more than likely going to be released with the future 2019 Lincoln MKX. Despite the fact Lincoln decided to keep quiet about the car, the test mule has already been spied on the open road. It looks like the changes are not going to be purely cosmetic either. The car should receive a far better drivetrain as well as a revised running gear. The end result should be a better to drive crossover than before without losing its characteristic ride quality.


As before, the car is still going to be based on the same platform as the Edge. Just like its sibling, it is also expected to receive a new running gear. The upcoming model is expected to receive, at least on the higher end versions, a new set of adaptive dampers and possibly an air-ride system. The dampers would control how the car behaves on the road and they would give it a much sportier character than before. The air-shocks on the other hand would allow the car to control the ride height depending on the road conditions.

This would also allow it to save fuel when driving on the highway at speed thanks to it being capable to lower the entire car closer to the ground. Besides that it seems the wheelbase will stay roughly the same as before. Despite what the early rumors suggested, it looks like the wheels will not be wider on the 2019 Lincoln MKX so we can expect roughly the same levels of grip as before.



The ongoing model is definitely a much better looking car than the Edge. It has more flair and its lines give it a much better character. Most of the lines on the side will stay the same as before which is reassuring. However, the car’s front end, possibly the hood too, will change completely over what we were used to. For starters, the camouflaged car definitely has two sets of headlights which is likely due to a split headlight design. This has been used before but so far none of the cars that used this design were that successful.

It looks like the new 2019 Lincoln MKX might receive a far better implementation than we first thought. The headlights are slim and swept back and they seem to be mounted right where the grille ends. Also, the two-piece grille will be replaced by a one-piece unit more similar to what the Continental brought to the market. The bumper was too heavily covered but it looks like it will feature a large center intake, likely for the hot-running engine. The rear of the revised MKX should receive just a new set of tail lights and that’s about it.


The current car has its entire cabin based on the Edge. Because of that it also offers roughly the same design and it seems that this might not change for the new generation. There is still a small chance for it to receive something quite a bit more similar to the latest Navigator. If this is going to happen then the MKX will become a more premium-feeling vehicle than before. However, if they decide to keep the design unchanged there are still some good news. The 2019 Lincoln MKX is set to receive a new instrument cluster and possibly a new set of front seats as well.

2018 Mitsubishi Shogun Changes, Price

2018 Mitsubishi Shogun Changes, Price

2018 Mitsubishi Shogun Changes, PriceMitsubishi Shogun goes by many names in different markets. It is Mitsubishi Montero in South America and India and Mitsubishi Pajero in the Asian market. The 2018 Mitsubishi Shogun was unveiled this year at the Tokyo motor show. It is now a plug-in hybrid with more security and off-road capabilities. This combination of being eco-friendly and having off-road abilities will be a game changer.


The exterior of this next generation car has been revamped both at the front and back. The fog lamps now have a matte finish giving it a brighter look. The front grill is more shiny and aggressive. This is because of the chrome finishing and trimming that has been done to it. At the rear, all the lights have been upgraded to LED.

These lights are larger and are curved to cover both the rear and side. Additionally, the roof now comes with rail that is both functional and good looking. It reinforces the roof and provides a place to put extra luggage. The wheel rims have been given a matt black finish and redesigned to give a sporty look.


Being a large SUV with seven seats, the past generations of the 2018 Shogun had a small leg room on the third row. The 2018 Mitsubishi Shogun now has a bigger cabin hence sufficient leg room on the third row. This third row can now be easily folded by using a button at the back to create more luggage space.

High-quality leather now covers both the seats and the steering wheel. This makes the Shogun a comfortable car to drive in. It also adds a more premium feel to it, something that lacked in the past generation. The overall visibility of the cabin has been improved. Larger windows that are electrically opened and closed are the reason for this. On top of that camera covering all blind spots are linked to the 12-inch display in front of the driver.


Replacing the 2.4-liter engine is a 3.6-liter V6 engine. More instant power is provided by the pack of lithium batteries. This is however not just any hybrid car, Mitsubishi calls the technology, PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid EV system). These two drive trains are linked to the wheels by an 8-speed automatic dual clutch transmission.

The performance of the 2018 Mitsubishi Shogun will be tailored to the driving needs. The electric mode is used alone for light driving such as during the morning commute to work in a city. On the other hand, when driving on tough terrain both the batteries and the V6 are used together.

None of the all wheel magic present in the past generation has been lost. You can now switch between four and two wheel driving modes using a button on the wheel. The car also detects the terrain it is driving on and switches automatically to the four-wheel mode in a rough and slippery ground.

Safety is now a top priority in the new car. A collision system comes standard in the car. It is able to detect moving objects in front of the car and apply emergency brakes automatically. Additionally, a system of cameras covers all the blind spot. This together with a system of sensors detects any cars moving towards you from the blind spots. It then gives the driver a warning.


The car is expected to be available in the market from mid-2018 at around June. The asking price is expected to be around $52,000 and $75,000.

The all new Mitsubishi Shotgun 2018 is a technological marvel. It has a hybrid mode that brags of zero emission. On top of that, the ability to switch it into four wheel drive mode ensures it is prepared to tackle all terrains. This 2018 Mitsubishi Shogun beast successfully manages to be green and tough.

2018 SUBARU BRZ STI SPECS, RELEASE DATEThe BRZ is a great sports car for the money but it is not really perfect. The car lacks the power or the looks to please everyone. In order to get a bit more performance from the chassis Subaru actually released a high performance model with the “tS” version but not even this received any power upgrades. Well, not that long ago rumors about a new version of the car started to surface. It seems a 2018 Subaru BRZ STI might happen in the future. The car would come with the power most of us hoped the “tS” was going to get as well as all the other upgrades of that car. The end result should be one of the best driving sports cars on the road with the performance to back up those driving characteristics.

The actual platform of the STI BRZ will be the same as that of the regular model, so no changes here. However, the entire running gear of the car is expected to change for something much better. It seems that just like the “tS”, the upcoming STI might receive Sachs high performance shocks and shorter performance springs. The car could also receive upgraded bushings, thicker anti-roll bars and likely a similar V-brace in the engine bay. These should increase the rigidity of the car by a good margin without adding any unnecessary weight. The brakes are not going to remain standard either. So far it seems the 2018 Subaru BRZ STI might get the same Brembo-supplied rotors and calipers as the WRX STI.


So, the spy photos are here, and they are some sort of evidence that 2018 Subaru BRZ STI is coming. When? That’s another matter. The Japanese automaker has been teasing us with BRZ STI for years. In 2015 they launched the concept vehicle that should have announced the arrival of BRZ STI. Two years have passed by, and nothing substantial happened. We are hoping that in following months pre-production vehicle will be ready and that 2018 launch will follow.

The price, on the other hand, can be conjured up based on the ongoing BRZ model. This vehicle starts at $25,500. Moving on, the Limited trim costs $27,700. Don’t get your hopes up too early. The STI powered 2018 Subaru BRZ will set you back for more than that. Taking into account these prices, and what future 2018 BRZ STI might bring to the table, the price will be in mid-$30,000. To be even more precise the upcoming BRZ STI could start at $35,000. Will it be worth? It remains to be seen so stay tuned, as we feed you more information.


The car is expected to be not much different from the newly released “tS” model. This means the car will get an entirely new body kit as well as a few other aerodynamic additions. For starters, in the front a large splitter will be added while the rear of the car will receive a different bumper with a slightly more aggressive-looking diffuser. Some suggested a different one might be added but we doubt that considering the “tS” is already more than aggressive-enough.

The massive rear wing on the limited edition model on the other hand might be skipped. In its place we could see something more similar to the WRX which would give the 2018 Subaru BRZ STI a slightly more subtle look. The wheels are likely going to be the 18 inch rims already found on the BRZ wrapped in higher performance tires. A 19 inch option might be added as an option but this is still up in the air.


Just like with any other STI car on the road, the BRZ STI won’t remain identical to its cheaper siblings. Here we should see a much better set of seats, likely with the STI logos on the headrests, as well as a new steering wheel. The upholstery is set to be the same type of suede as in the WRX STI while the red contrasting stitching will add a bit of flair to the cabin. In terms of features the BRZ STI won’t be much different from a regular BRZ.



2019 JAGUAR E-PACE PRICE, RELEASE DATE, INTERIORJaguar released their first SUV, the F-Pace, less than two years ago. However, they are going to release their second SUV in the near future as the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace has been confirmed a short while ago. Even though Jaguar still hasn’t released all the details about the car, they did tell us some interesting pieces of information. For starters, it seems the new E-Pace is set to be based on Land-Rover’s modular LR-MS platform. This is a high strength steel front wheel drive platform also in use on the Evoque or the Discovery Sport. The platform is quite capable in off-road and it usually offers a great experience on the road too. However, it is not nearly as good as Jaguar’s rear wheel drive chassis so it actually remains to be seen what they will do in order to stand out over their siblings.

Because it will be based on a steel chassis it means the E-Pace won’t be much lighter than the F-Pace despite being quite a bit smaller. However, it means they will be able to build the car for far less than otherwise so they should be able to get ahead of their rivals. From most spy shots we have seen so far it looks like the wheelbase of the new car is roughly the same as that of the Discovery Sport. However, the car definitely seems to be wider, lower and actually shorter. This is because both the front and rear overhangs are much smaller which translates in a shorter package.


One of the largest unknown factors about the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace is the car’s cabin. So far Jaguar hasn’t released a single picture or render about it. However, we can safely assume they are not going to just take the interior of the Evoque and install it on the E-Pace. Instead, we can expect a similarly built cabin with premium materials but with an entirely new design. The car may actually get a lot of design cues from Jaguar’s other cars which would make it stand out. We can expect a wide center console, possible thanks to the car’s width, a less vertical-looking dashboard and a center stack aimed towards the driver. Things like a digital instrument cluster, their latest wide-screen infotainment system, premium sport seats and possibly individual rear seats might be possible on the higher end versions of the car.


Thanks to a couple of pictures released by Jaguar we do have a clear look at the car’s design. It seems they decided to offer a much more interesting design than that of the F-Pace. For starters, the car’s front end is clearly inspired by the F-Type sports car. Here the SUV has a very similar set of swept-back headlights and nearly identical vertical intakes on the sides of the main front grille. The rear on the other hand is much closer to the F-Pace. Here the smaller SUV boasts a more aggressive rear window rake as well as a larger roof-spoiler. The car is also quite low and it has a really aggressive window-line which makes it seem much lower than it really is.


Because it is based on a front wheel drive chassis it means that Jaguar’s V6 won’t be available on the car. However, the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace will still come with more than adequate engines across the range. In Europe the car will be available with three different engines. There will be two petrol-powered engines and a diesel. The 2.0 liter turbocharged inline 4 and the 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel are both going to offer anything between 160 and all the way up to 250 horsepower. The base cars will come with front wheel drive and a 6 speed manual gearbox.

However, the higher end versions will only be available with an 8 speed automatic and all wheel drive. The car will make use of Land Rover’s AWD system so it should be more than just capable in off-road. A third engine option will be a 1.5 liter turbo-three Ingenium diesel mated to an electric motor. The output is still unknown but we can expect around 150 to 200 horsepower and well north of 200 lb-ft of torque. This is likely going to be the most fuel efficient offering in its class.


Based on success made by F-Pace the British automaker wasted no time in making another one. The upcoming 2019 Jaguar E-Pace has debut scheduled for 13th of July. In exactly one week from publishing this article new E-Pace will be introduced to the world. This will only be formal show-off while a full-scale debut is going to happen in Frankfurt. The biggest German car show is on the program in September.

In conclusion with above written you will be able to buy this vehicle in the first few months of 2018. The price is not yet determined for this model, but motorauthority.com and other source estimate the price to start at $39,000.
