2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Revealed. Full-size fun times eight and a new inline-six diesel option

Look out Ford truckers! Eight all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado trucks have rolled into town for the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

The Silverado LT Trailboss dropped in Fort Worth, Texas last month, and now see seven more trucks to choose from—one for every day of the week.

“With the all-new Silverado, we’ve taken the best truck on the road and made it even better,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president of Global Product Development.

“It has a longer wheelbase, more passenger and cargo volume, and yet, thanks to our mixed materials strategy and mass reduction expertise, the new truck is 450 pounds lighter than the current model.”

The eight new 1500 models include a new Rally Truck Sport (RST) trim and you can tell them all apart from the use of chrome or lack of it says Bow-Tie brass.

“Chrome has become more polarizing, and more personal, than any other aspect of truck design,” said Rich Scheer, director, Exterior Design, Chevrolet Trucks.

“Some customers want no chrome at all and only body-color or blacked-out trim. Others feel a truck isn’t a truck without a chrome bumper, but feel extra chrome can be too ‘flashy.’ Others want as much chrome as they can get.”

The fourth-generation of Chevy’s number one truck gets a bolder look, lighter platform, more tech—but not enough to scare the old timers—and six powertrain options including a new inline-six turbo-diesel engine.

A 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines are also offered. The new diesel and 6.2-liter V-8 are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

“Truck customers told us they want the perfect truck for them and not a ‘one size fits most’ truck, compromised for the masses,” said Mike Simcoe, vice president, Global Design, General Motors.

“That insight shaped our design strategy with eight distinct models, each with a unique personality to fit different customers, from the affordable Work Truck to the luxurious High Country.”

EPA fuel economy numbers for the 2019 Ford Ranger won’t be published

While Ford’s U.S. PR declined to provide detailed specifications at an embargoed preview, the U.K. version of the Ranger is 211 inches long, on a 126.8-inch wheelbase, and 71-72 inches tall. Curb weight ranges from 4,066 pounds for the non-North America standard cab, to as much as 4,875 pounds, which still is more than 600 pounds lighter than a Ford F-150 Platinum 4×4 Super Crew.

Ford will build the new ’19 Ranger beginning early next year, famously, at its Michigan Assembly Plant in the City of Wayne, where it currently produces the Focus and C-Max. Ford raised President Trump’s ire when it announced it was moving Focus production to a new plant, since cancelled, in Mexico. North American Ford Focus production now moves to China as Michigan Assembly retools for the ’19 Ranger, and about one year later, the new Bronco SUV.

EPA fuel economy numbers for the 2019 Ford Ranger won’t be published until shortly before it goes on sale early next year. Whether or not there’s a major improvement over the fuel mileage of EcoBoost- and diesel-powered aluminum F-150s, the new Ranger provides an easier entry point for—Ford hopes—younger buyers. It also provides better maneuverability in urban areas, where parking an F-150 in a downtown public garage can be a handful, and then on weekends can haul dirt bikes or mountain bikes to the hills. And while Ford left it unsaid, the new Ranger will be better-suited than the F-150 for all the car-sharing programs we’re likely to see in the ‘20s.

2019 Ford Ranger offers four drive modes Arrives in Early Next Year

The FX4’s Terrain Management System offers four drive modes: normal, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts, and sand. An off-road drive assist technology maintains speed as low as 1 mph and as high as 20 mph, in any transfer-case setting. As on the F-150, a blind-spot information system includes trailer coverage. A rear camera and emergency braking are standard, and pre-collision assist, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control are available. Its Sync 3 works off an eight-inch information/entertainment screen.

Inside, the steering wheel and shifter have been redesigned from foreign-market models. There are F-150-inspired side-steps optional, new cargo box rails and eight new wheel designs, some of them also F-150-like. Standard wheels are 17-inch, with 18-inchers optional. The tailgate is aluminum, with the handle lifted for “usability.”

Unlike all the competition, from the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, to the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, the 2019 Ford Ranger will be offered in North America with just one engine; what the company is calling an “all-new” version of the gas direct-injection, twin-scroll turbo 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo four already offered in the Mustang. The new Selectshift 10-speed automatic is standard. No manual will be offered.

Ford will offer the Ranger here in Super Cab and Super Crew body styles. Super Cab will come with a five-foot box, and the Super Crew’s will be six feet. Trim levels are XL, XLT, STX, and Lariat, with FX4 4×4 and sport and trim packages available, so one can assume it would take Ford making a big dent in the midsize pickup category before it would consider adding different engines, like the F-150’s new 3.0L Power Stroke diesel, or King Ranch, and Platinum trim levels. Ranger seems like a better platform for the Raptor pickup, however.

2019 Hyundai Veloster Shows. Slow tease continues on 2018 Detroit auto show

Thanks to Hyundai’s latest teaser, we now have a pretty good idea of what the new 2019 Veloster will look like when it makes its debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show.

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster shows its face in an animation posted to Twitter recently. As we’ve seen in previous teasers, the Veloster receives a pointy grille and more conventional headlights. Its front end more closely aligns with the look of other new Hyundai products.

Hyundai also previewed the Veloster’s back end. New taillights are the most obvious change, as well as the newly designed lower lights.

Once again, the Veloster has two centrally mounted tailpipes in the rear. It also has a black window spoiler that looks nice against the orange paint job.

A 1.6T badge denotes the car’s 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, which made 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque in the previous generation.

The new Veloster will retain its unusual three-door setup. Like on the old model, there is one door on the driver’s side but two on the passenger side.

Judging from previous teasers, the Veloster has large wheel arches, a sloped roof, and low proportions. Hyundai says it pushed the car’s A-pillar back to make the hood of the car look longer.

We’ll learn more when the Veloster debuts January 15 at the Detroit auto show.

2019 Ford Ranger Arrives. A Ford pickup for urban parking garages

It seemed perfectly reasonable seven years ago that Ford might remove the Ranger midsize pickup truck from the U.S. market forever. The last model sold here hadn’t been updated in what seemed like decades, and the average Ford truck buyer could get nearly the same gas mileage from a V-6 F-150 (and run it on cheap gas), with a bigger cargo box and much better towing capacity for a few bucks a month more.

Turns out seven years was as long as Ford could go without trying to assert its truck leadership image in every possible sub-segment, and get the Ranger back on the U.S. market. And so here we are at Cobo Hall in Detroit, where the 2019 Ford Ranger is unveiled about a year before it begins production in North America, as a “lifestyle” truck not meant to capture any would-be full-size pickup buyers who need a work tool.

It looks very much like the same Ford Ranger that has been on-sale in Europe and other foreign markets in that interim. In a reversal of the Mulally-era One Ford touted for the ’12 Focus, however, the Blue Oval truck people say the Ranger has been heavily redesigned for the U.S. market, and has its own, unique box-frame construction.

The North American 2019 Ford Ranger also gets its own solid-steel front bumper, front-mounted tow hooks, a new double-bulge aluminum hood, and on the FX4 trim level, an “aluminum bash plate,” as truck design chief and native Australian Max Wolff puts it. Every body panel was “touched,” for “optimized panel gap reduction, and wind noise reduction,” Wolff adds.

Koenigsegg Agera Specifications- Auto Universe

The Koenigsegg Agera is a mid-engined sports auto delivered by Swedish auto producer Koenigsegg since 2011. It is a successor to the Koenigsegg CCX/CCXR.

The name Agera originates from the Swedish verb "agera" which signifies "to act" or in basic structure "(You) act!".

Particulars and execution 

In right on time improvement the auto was fitted with a 4.7-liter V8 motor with twin altered vane turbos, yet it was supplanted with a 5.0- liter twin-turbocharged V8 motor for the creation form of the auto.

Motor and transmission 

The Agera is controlled by an in-house created 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 motor which delivers 940 hp (701 kW) at 6900 rpm and 1,100 N·m (810 lb·ft) of torque at 4000 rpm. Aggregate weight of the motor is just 197 kg (434 lb) because of a carbon fiber mission complex and the aluminum development. The transmission is a 7-speed double grip with oar shifters. It is the first double grip
transmission to include one and only information shaft. The second grasp backs off the info shaft amid up movements keeping in mind the end goal to diminish the time it takes to synchronize the following rigging, bringing about speedier movement times. Most quite, the transmission weighs just 81 kg (179lb).


0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 sec 

0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.9 sec 

0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 14.53 sec 

Top velocity for the creation model is above 430 km/h (270 mph). 

Koenigsegg Agera R 

The Agera R made its presentation at the March 2011 Geneva Motor Show—with a Speed Racer attire topic, and uncommon Michelin tires. It can quicken from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and achieve a hypothetical top velocity of 273 mph (440 km/h). The Agera R has a drag coefficient of Cd=0.37, or Cd=0.33 at rapid because of its versatile back wing, while delivering 300 kg of downforce at 250km/h. This versatile back wing framework is lighter than ordinary water driven/electrical versatile frameworks, and has the extraordinary capacity to make up for head/tailwind because of its spring-stacked outline. Besides, the arches holding the wing assume not just a part in the Agera R's streamlined execution, additionally help with extricating hot air from the motor narrows.

On 2 September 2011, amid test sessions in Ängelholm, the Agera R broke six world area rate records for a generation auto, counting 0–300 km/h in 14.53 seconds, and 0-300-0 km/h in just 21.19 seconds. The braking execution required to keep up this record is empowered to a limited extent by the Agera's security, exhibited by Koenigsegg's test driver and drivetrain expert Robert Serwanski,
who was recorded by traveler Rob Ferretti (originator of the gathering "Super Speeders") braking from 186 mph to 0 without holding the directing wheel.

The Agera R can create parallel cornering powers of 1.5G, because of a blend of mechanical parity and large amounts of grasp from the uniquely created Michelin Supersport tires. The 2013 form of Agera R debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Updates included carbon fiber wheels, improved optimal design, also, motor updates permitting the Agera R's 5 liter twin turbocharged motor to create 1140 hp on E85. What's more, on account of Koenigsegg's Flex Fuel Sensor innovation, the ECU can react to reducing so as to differ fuel qualities and liquor content force levels as a method for securing the motor. On standard low octane energizes, force is reduced to 960hp.
