Chevy Colorado aftermarket support picking with new, specialized parts

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 05/17/2018 - 19:45

Filed under: ,,,

For years, the Toyota Tacoma has been the go-to option for off-road pickup trucks. Like the Jeep Wrangler, there seems to be endless support from the aftermarket for Tacoma owners. Thanks to the new Chevy Colorado, the Tacoma is no longer the only big player in the midsize-truck markert (sorry Nissan Frontier owners). The aftermarket is finally starting to take notice, too, with major suppliers like ARB and AEV offering new, unique products for one of our favorite Chevys.

BMW iNext design concept teased, full reveal later this year

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 05/17/2018 - 14:25

Filed under: ,,,,

We have very few details on the BMW iNext project. The new EV is set to go on sale in 2021, will have 435 miles of range and self-driving technology. BMW has described the vehicle as its "technology flagship," so expect every last bit of tech the German automaker has to be packed inside. Still, we don't even know what the new model will look like. It could be a sedan, hatchback or crossover. Each seems as equally likely as the other. Well, we will soon see the iNext — at least an early con

Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol welcomes overlanding season

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 05/17/2018 - 01:30

Filed under: ,,,

Nissan is throwing another multi-day overlanding bash ahead of the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, this week. Last year, the carmaker debuted the Titan Project Basecamp overlanding pickup at the expo. This year — even though Nissan's event is called "Titan Adventure" — Nissan went with a survivalist SUV called the Armada Mountain Patrol. Other than the fact that you're more likely to see a feral Martha Stewart in the deep woods eating canned rations before you'd see a bugge

Other subcompact crossovers we think should get the performance treatment

Auto Blog News Feed - Wed, 05/16/2018 - 22:00

Filed under: ,,

We've learned that Hyundai's engineers are working on a high-performance N version of the Hyundai Kona subcompact crossover SUV. And while people might cringe at the idea of putting effort into making a crossover sporty, we're not opposed to the idea. It worked pretty well in the case of the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, and now that it's gone, really the only sporty little crossover left is the Mini Countryman S and John Cooper Works. And if we're stuck in a crossover world, why not have ones that are
