Ford's Ranger should be at the very top of your list if you want to buy American, according to a study published by American University's Kogod School of Business. It finished ahead of the Chevrolet Corvette, among others. Interestingly, the outgoing Dodge Grand Caravan is built with 74% American or Canadian parts, so it leads the industry in this category, but it finished in 22nd place overall with a score of 64, partly because Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) established its corporate headquarters in Amsterdam and set up its financial headquarters in London.
Ford says the new Escape has 33.5 cubic-feet of space behind the raised back seat. Sure, you lose rear passenger space in the process, but maybe you don't need that? To see how much the Escape can fit inside versus those competitors, as well as the difference sliding the back seat makes, let's haul out the bags.

Peugeot Sport announced Friday that it will return to top-tier motorsports in collaboration with works team Total, fielding a new Le Mans Hypercar Prototype in 2022. The announcement came in the lead-up to the 88th running of the infamous 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will be held this weekend after being postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic. "Le Mans is the holy grail of the automobile world," said Peugeot CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato in the company's announcement.
Ford recently announced the electric F-150 will be the most powerful version of the 14th-generation truck. It released a dark preview image that indicates it will also be the most futuristic-looking member of the range. The idea that electric vehicles don't need cooling is false, so there may be air dams positioned below the grille.
Following the 18 events in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the largest BMW Motorrad meeting will be held in Berlin by next year.The tradition-steeped event—which began in 2001—will be held in the place where BMW motorcycles have been built for more than five decades.BMW Motorrad Head Dr. Markus Schramm noted the significance of the forthcoming bike meet.“The BMW Motorrad Days in Garmisch-Partenkirchen has been a genuine success story—an event that has attracted tens of thousands of visitors every year and was founded on excellent cooperation with the municipality of Garmisch-Partenkirchen,” he said.“My special thanks go to Mrs Elisabeth Koch, First Mayor, the local institutions and companies – and last but not least the people of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. With their great commitment over a period of almost two decades, they have all contributed to making the BMW Motorrad Days an incomparable, globally unique event within the motorbike world,” Schramm added.The decision to move the BMW Motorrad Days to Berlin was decided to “break new ground in brand development for the future and developing new concepts so as to give the BMW Motorrad Days a powerful fresh stimulus.”The European auto giant also claimed that Berlin is an “ideal platform for zero-emission mobility solutions and urban mobility concepts on two wheels.”“We believe Berlin is the perfect place for the BMW Motorrad Days 2021. As an international city offering a rich cultural experience, a wide range of excursions in the surrounding area and a unique lifestyle, the capital of Germany has everything it takes to make the BMW Motorrad Days even more diverse and attractive in the coming year,” Schramm noted.For his part, governing mayor Michael Müller expressed his elation over the organized event in his jurisdiction."I am very pleased that the BMW Motorrad Days, one of the largest motorcycle events in Europe, will come to Berlin next year and that we were able to win this attractive and traditional event for our city. This is a highlight not only for motorcycle enthusiasts, but also for the citizens of Berlin and our guests from all over the world,” Müller explained.“The fact that BMW Motorrad wants to break new ground here in Berlin is an important sign – for the city and the motorcycle industry alike. It is also a commitment to this industrial production site in Berlin, where BMW has been producing motorcycles for five decades now. At a time when issues relating to mobility and transport are playing an increasingly important role for the future of cities, Berlin can provide new and important impetus in hosting the event,” he added.Photo/s from BMW Also read:BMW Motorrad Now Offering M Performance PartsBMW Motorrad joins TikTok crazeThe BMW R18 Cruiser Is Not a Bike for Noobs

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) recently released the result of its latest vehicle tests in which revamped 2020 protocols were applied. When the smoke cleared on the initial round of testing, the Toyota Yaris, emerged with a full five star rating.The fourth-generation Yaris was subjected to the standard tests including the new all-new frontal offset, which replaces the outmoded version in place since 1997. The new version is the first to feature a counter-measure for injuries in far-side impacts.The mobile progressive deformable barrier (MPDB) test, another new addition for 2020, assesses the protection a car offers its occupants as well as the risks it poses to the car it has crashed into. The Yaris, manages to do well in this area, with its small size and benign front end making it one of the less aggressive crash partners on the road.Meanwhile, the Yaris has two center-mounted airbags that deploy during a forceful side impact to prevent an occupant from being thrown to the opposite side of the vehicle, reducing the risk of occupant to occupant contact that could lead to additional injury.The Yaris also showcases the rapid advancements in crash avoidance technology: the latest generation of Toyota Safety Sense now can stop the vehicle during turning to avoid a crash with oncoming traffic.All these new safety features practically ensured that the small Toyota city car will pass Euro NCAP's tests with flying colors.Euro NCAP’s Secretary General, Michiel van Ratingen, extended his congratulations to Toyota for the Yaris’ stellar safety results.“Congratulations to Toyota on a top rating for the Yaris,” van Ratingen said. “This has been a tough year for all concerned and I am grateful to Euro NCAP’s labs and employees who have worked hard to deliver safety, while staying safe.“We have had to adapt quickly to new working practices, and it is pleasing that the first car rated this year should have gone so far to address the safety issues that are emerging as top priorities,” he added.The 2020 changes are only the first salvo of a wide ranging set of adjustments that Euro NCAP will implement in its practices.Beginning 2022, the European Union will make mandatory a number of active safety systems in all vehicles, and Euro NCAP is adapting to ensure all these new systems meet stringent industry safety standards.The implementation of the said systems, which is outlined in the revised EU General Safety Regulation (GSR), include tire pressure monitoring, advance emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and intelligent speed adaptation.Photo/s from Euro NCAP Also read:Toyota Japan now has an online used vehicle storeToyota Is Remaking New Parts for Old Supras
The government has retracted the earlier pronouncement that they have allowed the reduction of physical distancing from one meter to .75 meters.According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, the various public transports will follow the earlier measurement of one-meter distance as advised by Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.“Balik one-meter muna tayo sa physical distancing sa pampublikong transportasyon habang wala pang desisyon ang presidente kung ito nga po ay pwedeng maibaba sa 0.75,” Roque was quoted as saying.Transportation Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran explained that the issuance of suspension on the protocol is to debunk the perception of a divided Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).“Sec. Tugade does not savor the scenario that public views a divided IATF. He does not enjoy seeing a perception that a timeline is being set whereupon the Office of the President should make a decision,” she said.Libiran also noted that a reduced distancing requirement is to address public transportation woes and consequently provide livelihood to revive the economy.He cited medical experts led by former health secretaries Manuel Dayrit and Esperanza Cabral that the “one-meter physical distancing measure by the World Health Organization (WHO) allows for adjustments based on context.”“It is actually according on the assumption that people are doing “normal” activities such as talking, singing, and opening their mouths. This does not consider the presence of other health interventions such as mandatory wearing of face masks, face shields, the policy on no talking, no eating, regular washing of hands, foot bath and disinfection,” Libiran explained.“On our recent manifestation to temporarily revert to 1-meter, please note that this was done so as not to savor the scenario that the IATF is divided. Secretary Tugade does not enjoy seeing a perception that a timeline is being set whereupon the Office of the President should make a decision. We want to give the Office of the President a free hand to decide on this at their own time and context,” she concluded.Last September 14, distancing on public transportation was reduced from 1 to .75 meters while maintaining the “No Face Mask, No Face Shield, No Entry,” as well as the “No Talking and No Answering Calls”policy while inside public commute vehicles.Such protocol was followed upon the approval of the IATF on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to increase ridership.Photo/s from Department of Transportation, Asec Goddess Hope Libiran Facebook page Also read:DOTr Asec defends EDSA Busway designLook: DOTr-approved modern PUVsDOTr Issues New Guidelines for GCQ
Hyundai Motor Company has just released the first images of its facelifted i30 N hatchback, revealing a sharper exterior and new sportier wheels.The new 2021 Hyundai i30 N will also have a performance-focused 8-speed dual clutch transmission (N DCT), but only for the European market. A 6-speed manual will be the sole gearbox option in most areas, according to the South Korean carmaker.The teased images show a redesigned front façade characterized by the enlargement of key features such as the grille, air intakes and headlights. V-shaped daytime running lights lend some slickness to the car’s overall sporty feel. At the rear, a restyled rear bumper and wider diffuser give the signature round exhausts a refreshed flair.The new 19-inch rims, which Hyundai states are made of forged alloy, are lighter than those found in the outgoing model, and are expected to contribute to the car’s weight reduction while aiding in performance and handling.Although the released photos didn’t come with shots of the interior, pundits are expecting that the i30 cabin will be pretty much the same as the one in its predecessor, with the exception of a larger infotainment screen similar to the one found in the latest Elantra N Line.As this is merely a facelift, powertrain options are expected to remain the same, with the current 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine carrying over, albeit with a mild improvement to power and torque.More details about the new i30 will be provided by Hyundai as the 2021 i30 N’s release date nears, which is yet to be announced. The car is expected to launch in Europe and Australia before the year ends.Unfortunately, Hyundai Philippines dropped the i30 from its lineup some two years ago. The good news is that the locally discontinued model has a very able replacement in the guise of the Veloster Turbo.Photo/s from Hyundai Also read:Hyundai PH wants you to score a HOMERUN with latest promoHyundai teases rendering of new Elantra N Line
Automobili Lamborghini gives its fans a new way to express their love with a 3D jigsaw puzzle that allows them to recreate their very own Lamborghini Huracán EVO super sports car.The Italian sports car brand collaborated with Ravensburger, a leading games and recreation brand, to develop the impressive puzzle, which faithfully recreates every inch of the Huracán EVO V10 car in a 1:18 scale using 108 numbered plastic pieces plus accessories.“Mounted onto a replica chassis, every detail is faithful to the real car, from the Y-style front bumper and Y-shape in the headlights, to the hexagonal details found throughout the car and the original Arancio Xanto orange color of Lamborghini cars,” Lamborghini described its new product in a press release.The finished model, showcasing the Raging Bull’s signature design DNA, measures 260mm in overall length. A total of 32 high-quality feature accessories ensures buyers will continue to enjoy the puzzle long after it’s completed—it's got axles and four rotating wheels that accurately emulate the Aesir rims found on the real car. Meanwhile a front splitter and rear diffuser further add realistic aesthetic flair.“The Ravensburger 3D Puzzle Lamborghini Huracán EVO recreates the emotion of Lamborghini in a fun-to-build puzzle and model to be admired in the living room, for adults and children of eight years and older,” stated Lamborghini.According to the car maker, the 3D Lamborghini puzzle is already available in Europe for EUR 34.99 (approx. PHP 2,000).If you want the real thing though, you can get in touch with PGA Automobile, Inc., the official distributor of Lamborghini cars in the country, via Carmudi.

Volvo is ensuring that cabin air inside its cars remain as clean and safe as can be with a world-first premium air quality technology.Dubbed as the Advanced Air Cleaner (AAC) system, Volvo’s new air filtration technology comes with a sensor that detects PM 2.5 levels inside the cabin, creating a feature not available in any other car currently on the market.Once pollutants are detected, the Volvo AAC makes use of a synthetic fiber-based filter and ionization unit that can keep up to 95 percent of pollutants from the outside air from entering the cabin. This helps optimize the air quality inside the car, limiting the adverse health effects that are associated with air pollution and fine particulates, according to the Swedish car brand.Aside from enhancing health and safety, cleaner cabin air also helps boost driver concentration, the Geely-owned company claimed. This supposedly aids in reducing the risk of accidents on the road.Available on all 90 Series and 60 Series Volvo models based on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), AAC also allows owners to activate the air cleaning system ahead of entering the vehicle via the Volvo On Call app.“With our Advanced Air Cleaner technology, you can rest assured that the air you breathe inside your Volvo is cleaner and healthier,” said Anders Löfvendahl, senior technical expert on cabin air quality at Volvo Cars. “We believe that clean air is good for you, both from a health and from a safety perspective, and will continue to push the envelope in this area.”The Volvo AAC follows a similar effort by its mother company, Geely’s G-Clean Intelligent Air Purification System (IAPS) that automatically filters out dangerous particulates in the air that serve as potential health risks.Aside from AAC, Volvo Cars is also developing a way to remove emissions from organic substances in the car and minimizing the amount of allergy-causing materials from its interiors.Volvo is addressing this concern by implementing requirements for suppliers that seek to minimize odors from parts and materials used inside the cabin. The company also works closely with a variety of universities and other institutes on projects related to material use, as well as developing and implementing ever-stricter allergy measures for its interiors.To prove just how serious it is on the issue of odors, Volvo assembled a special team of smell assessors, internally known as The Noses, to test components and cabins for potentially harmful scents.Photo/s from Volvo Cars Also read:Volvo ranks highest in tech innovation in 2020 J.D.

Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has just released the Toyota Hilux Conquest this month, with a whopping 13 variants in all.As the second bestselling model in 2019, the new Hilux has a lot of expectations to live up to, and gets some stiff competition from the likes of the Isuzu D-Max Boondock.Suffice to say, both the top-of-the-line Hilux Conquest and D-Max Boondock are two of a pickup buyer’s best choices. We pit these two beastly off-roaders against one another and take our pick as to which one deserves your hard-earned money more. ExteriorThe Isuzu D-Max Boondock looks ready to take on any rough terrain, starting with the tall 247mm ground clearance made possible by a complex suspension system composed of monotube nitrogen charged performance shock absorbers and all-terrain Yokohama Geolandar G015 tires. Blacked-out roof rails, side stepboards, mirror covers, alloy wheels, over fenders, and cargo extender complete the Boondock's beastly appeal. To further distinguish it from the rest of the D-Max line, the model comes with cool-looking light blue line at the front and a special Boondock sticker at its tailgate.The Hilux Conquest asserts its bolder look over the rest of the lineup, showing more authority on the road with its sporty and refreshing new features such as a new grille design and sports bar, restyled daytime running lights, a bed liner, and 18-inch alloy wheels further amplifying the active lifestyle of the Hilux Conquest owner. A “Conquest” graphic at the rear sides further distinguish it from its Hilux family.Winner: D-Max Boondock InteriorInside the D-Max Boondock, an 8-inch multi-information touchscreen display serves as the centerpiece, appearing in an integrated design that unites it with the rest of the cabin's features in seamless fashion. Perforated leather covers the front and back seats, further establishing the cabin's stylish allure. For entertainment, the Boondock provides occupants with a CD/DVD player and AM/FM radio, as well as iPod, Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity. Among the Boondock's wide array of safety features include dual SRS airbags, Anti-lock Brake System with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist, Brake Override System, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, and Reverse Sensors with Camera.The new Hilux Conquest is now equipped with a Smart Key/Entry feature and furnished with a new black interior trim and a 6.5-inch display to go with the Steering Wheel Audio Control. Overall, the Conquest’s cabin is just the same as the next top Hilux variant. In terms of safety, the Conquest 4×4 models get anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution (ABS-EBD), hill-start assist, stability control with traction control, downhill assist, and trailer sway control. Meanwhile, the Conquest 4×2 gets only three airbags along with ABS-EBD. A reverse back-up camera and clearance sensors are also onboard.Winner: Hilux ConquestPowertrainThe D-Max Boondock is powered by a Euro 4-compliant 3.0-liter Blue Power diesel engine with intercooler that produces 175hp and 380Nm. There are two gearbox choices on offer: a manual with gear shift indicator and automatic with sequential shift, both of which are six-speed. The D-Max Boondock is available only in 4x4 drive configuration, as opposed to the 4x2 and 4x4 options that its predecessors came in.The Hilux Conquest is powered by the same fuel-efficient and durable engine used in the current Hilux lineup; a 2.8-liter four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC Variable Nozzle Turbo with Air-cooled Intercooler and a 2.4-liter version of the same engine. Both are befitting for any off road activity. Engine output maxes out at 201hp and 500Nm for the 2.8L and 148hp and 400Nm for the 2.4L. A choice between a 6-speed automatic and 6-speed intelligent manual gearbox ensures all that power reaches either all four wheels (4x4 variants) or rear wheels only (4x2 variants).Winner: Hilux Conquest Price and optionsThe Isuzu D-Max Boondock 4x4 comes in two variants, priced at PHP1.725 million (manual) and PHP1.795 million (automatic). As for color options, these include Cosmic Black, Titanium Silver, Red Spinel, and Silky Pearl White.The Hilux Conquest on the other hand, has four different trims, priced as follows: * CONQUEST 2.8 4x4 A/T: PHP1,850,000 * CONQUEST 2.8 4x4 M/T: PHP1,775,000 * CONQUEST 2.4 4x2 A/T: PHP1,475,000 * CONQUEST 2.4 4x2 M/T: PHP1,400,000Available in the colors Super White, Grey Metallic, Attitude Black Mica, Nebula Blue Metallic, and the Conquest-exclusive Emotional Red, the Hilux Conquest ensures a tougher appearance on the road.Winner: Hilux Conquest VerdictThe Hilux Conquest wins in terms of options and power, but if you’re looking for more muscle and practicality, then it’s the Isuzu D-Max Boondock for you. That said, the D-Max Boondock’s age is to its detriment. Nevertheless, both are known to be reliable pickup brands, so in terms of durability, you can’t really go wrong either way. Feel free to check out the rest of the specs of both pickups here on Carmudi.Photo/s from TMP, Isuzu PH Also read:BUYER'S GUIDE: 2019 Isuzu D-Max BoondockRefreshed Toyota Hilux: The 13 variants in detail
The Prancing Horse has recently launched the Ferrari Portofino M—the latest iteration of the 2+ GT spider.The digital unveiling of the Ferrari Portofino M is the company’s signal of “rediscovery following the temporary suspension of work due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.Ferrari stated in its statement the recent presentation serves as the “(re)starting point for Prancing Horse’s pursuit of innovation whilst fully respecting its heritage, passion and constant search for perfection.”It also added that the M stands for “Modificata”, which in Ferrari jargon refers to “cars that have undergone an evolution that has significantly boosted their performance.”Ferrari Portofino M has a redesigned 3855-cc V8 turbocharged engine, (which is part of the V8 turbo family that was voted “International Engine of the Year” from 2016-2019) mated to its new eight-speed gearbox as well as other driver-centric sweets like the advanced driver assistance system, which provides authentic GT performance.This powertrain design covers 0-100 kilometers per hour (kph) in 3.45 seconds and 0-200 in 9.8 seconds, with a maximum speed of above 320 kph.Aside from that, the Ferrari Portofino M’s HMI (Human-Machine Interface) revolves on the digital cluster with dual TFT displays arranged around the analog rev counter.Further, its touchscreen infotainment system is located at the center of the dash, which includes a full HD multi-touch capacitive screen with Split View to allow different types of content to be viewed simultaneously.

If you've never changed your own oil before, there's no better time than now to start. Motor oil is something that is going to be individual to each situation. It's essential to check your owner's manual to see what viscosity and kind of oil you'll need (and how much of it).
Utah-based Vanderhall announced its first four-wheeled model will be an electric off-roader that looks like a cross between a Jeep Wrangler and a dune buggy. Called Navarro, it's scheduled to go on sale in 2022. One of the coolest features, at least judging by the short video Vanderhall posted on YouTube, are see-through doors.
The high-performance RS 3 variant of Audi's new A3 sedan and hatchback has been in development for some time, but now that the more mundane variants of the subcompact luxury car have been revealed, Audi has stripped some of the camo off of its RS 3 development mules, giving is a better idea of what to expect in terms of unique treatments. While RS represents the pinnacle of each Audi model line's performance, VW's luxury subsidiary tends to keep its styling on the more conservative side. All of those details are obscured by the remaining vinyl on this prototype, but at least Audi's disguise lets us know where to look.
It has been awhile since we've had a good example of a Tesla driver endangering those around him while under the delusion that his car is magical. The incident happened in July but is just now cropping up in Canadian media reports. It happened north of Calgary, Alberta, near the town of Ponoka.
While our typical approach here at Autoblog is a luggage test, I simply don't own anywhere near enough luggage to fill the back of the A6 Allroad with the rear seats up, let alone to push the limits of the cargo space with everything folded flat. Thanks to the Allroad, I was able to make a serious dent in my remaining stockpile, and turn a four-wheeled wagon into a sixteen-wheeled cargo hauler. In no particular order, it was a full set of OEM interior seats from my old 2016 Ford Fiesta ST, two sets of 16-inch FD RX-7 wheels (one each reinforced and non-reinforced) with tires, a set of (five) 16-inch wheels and tires for my Jeep Wrangler, the set of wheels that came on my '90 Miata (Rota Spyder Evolutions, I believe, also with tires) and the cardboard boxes, which each contain a stock, 18-inch wheel from my 2008 Mazdaspeed3.
Mitsubishi's long-promised new models are right around the corner. It released a dark image to preview the 2022 Eclipse Cross, which will boast comprehensive visual updates when it arrives in the first quarter of 2021. Although the photo keeps the full design under wraps, we can tell the Eclipse Cross falls in line with the rest of the Mitsubishi range by adopting new-look headlights with swept-back LED accents and thick pieces of C-shaped trim.
