2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: News, Design

Honda’s popular CR-V SUV has a versatile and roomy cabin and also delivers a comfortable ride with plenty of safety gear in all models. The model was all-new for the 2017 model year and Honda promised recently the hybridization of the entire light-duty truck range. The 2019 CR-V will appear with minimal changes without of the styling and powertrain upgrades when speaking about the currently available engine options but according to some reports the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid could appear in late 2019 model year or wait for the 2020 version.

What’s is known so far, the hybrid powertrain should use the same formula as Accord Hybrid sedan with firm’s two-motor configuration. The styling and interior should be very similar to the petrol-powered models.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Design

There are no details from Honda about the hybrid version of the desirable CR-V but if the model arrives as the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid, it won’t differ much visually from the current non-hybrid version. On the hand, if Honda waits for the 2020 model year launch the model could come with the refreshed styling.

In any case, there won’t be obvious differences between the hybridized model and conventionally powered CR-Vs. The model will continue in the same shape and size while the distinction will make unique grille version, wheel design and appropriate badging.

Interior, features:

Interior of the CR-V hybrid will also be the familiar form from the current CR-V. The model will have a high dose of interior style but will win with the practicality and functionality. A number of clever compartments will be available inside the cabin and the CR-V has well-placed controls as well. The model will also be available with the upscale upgrades including high-quality upholstery, heating features, and will also include Honda’s latest tech features.

The model will come with the responsive infotainment system but will also be equipped with the array of the safety equipment. The equipment list will include systems like adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Powertrain

There is no doubt, that 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid (or another model year version) will use Honda’s two-motor system. Like the Accord Hybrid sedan, the CR-V SUV should get the Atkinson cycle 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the combination with the electric motors and battery pack. The power and performance of the system haven’t appeared yet but the same setup makes 212 hp and manages 47 combined fuel economy in the Acord sedan.

The CR-V Hybrid will likely be the most powerful CR-V and the most efficient as well. It will beat easily 30 mpg combined of the turbo-4 powertrain and will also challenge the rivals of RAV4 Hybrid, Rogue Hybrid, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Arrival, Price

No confirmation of the arrival of the CR-V Hybrid yet from Honda. The reports claim the model could arrive late in the 2019 model year or more likely wait for the refresh and the 2020 version.

The price of the possible 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid is also unknown. The base model of the current CR-V starts from around $25, 000 and the hybrid would close to the 30k range likely.

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Redesign, Changes, Engines, Debut

While Chevy presented the redesigned Chevy Silverado early this year the brand is also simultaneously working on the new-generation Silverado HD models and the truck-based SUVs. So, it’s not strange that the half-ton Silverado made the first to the public as this model will borrow the design, running gear, tech, etc. to the upcoming vehicles. The larger Suburban was spotted earlier while testing but the fast-selling Tahoe will also enter the new generation as the 2020 model.

The 2020 Chevy Tahoe, based on the spy photos and some sources, will finally switch to the independent rear suspension while coming also with the redesigned chassis and lighter. The model will get the modernized styling and interior adding also the newest teach features. The powertrain range should provide better performance and efficiency, with the possibility of the diesel engine introduction.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Design

The new, three-row 2020 Chevy Tahoe will share the same platform with the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 and come much lighter. With the extensive use of the high-tensile steel in the new underpinning and aluminum alloy for the swing-body elements, the new Tahoe should also reduce the weight significantly. The new-generation Tahoe could weigh as much 400 pounds less than the version it replaces. However, at the same time, the model could gain additional inches for the extended interior capacity.

Visually, the new version should come with the more modern styling but the heavily camouflaged prototype doesn’t reveal much. The model will sport the dual-port grille combined with the new headlights. The body lines and edges seem also to be softened but we will have a clear picture of model’s new look when the introduction takes place likely early next year.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new Tahoe should increase the level of luxury, comfort and convenience. There should also be the increased interior capacity thanks to the additional inches and new cabin configuration.

The model will also get the newest tech features Chevy has on offer. The new infotainment system with the smartphone support and new center display will appear alongside the modern safety systems. The large SUV will rely on the systems like the adaptive cruise control, lane control, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, etc.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Powertrains

As for the engine choices, we should expect the 2020 Chevy Tahoe with the duo of familiar V-8 engines.

A 5.3-liter V-8 engine should appear with the improved fuel saving system and the new 8-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque ratings should stay around 355 hp and 383 lb-ft.

A 6.3-liter V-8 should be a more potent V-8 option in the combination with the new 10-speed automatic transmission.  The power with this engine should move to around 420 hp and torque to 460 lb-ft.

However, the next-generation Tahoe could also gain the diesel engine option. Again, related with the light-duty Silverado a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 would produce around 282 hp and torque of 450 lb-ft.

The new Tahoe will also switch to the rear independent suspension and will also provide the off-road upgrades.

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Release, Price

The redesigned 2020 Chevy Tahoe will likely debut at the Auto Show early next year. The price will likely move the starting point around $50, 000 but it will be known after the debut.

2020 Honda Passport: Design, Specs, Equipment, Price

Honda has recently revived the Passport nameplate and the model takes the form of the two-row crossover SUV with the “soft off-road” capability and plenty of interior space. The Passport model fills the gap between the compact CR-V and mid-size Pilot in the brand’s formidable crossover SUV range. The model shares plenty of style, interior features and mechanics with the Pilot SUV and the production takes place at the factory in Lincoln, Alabama where the three-row Pilot is being assembled as well.

Honda will offer the 2020 Honda Passport with the single engine option like the mid-size Pilot and the range of trims will also be familiar. The two-row Passport will go on sale in four trims including Sport, EX-L, Touring ould and Elite. The model will provide the same towing capability as the larger Pilot while will be more capable for the off-road adventures. There will also be the latest tech and safety systems and several premium features.

2020 Honda Passport

2020 Honda Passport: Design

The 2020 Honda Passport shares the platform with the Pilot SUV and Ridgeline pickup and the model uses also the similar mechanic elements.

The Passport is, however, sized for the transportation of up to five people and provides plenty of cargo thanks to the clever interior design. The model measures 190,5 inches from bumper to bumper while rides on the 111-inch wheelbase. The wheelbase is identical to that of the larger Pilot but the Passport is 6 inches shorter while has a 10-inch longer footprint than the compact CR-V.

Form the visual perspective, the model looks like the shrunken Pilot with the similar shape and styling elements. The shape of the grille and the headlights are similar to the latest vehicles from Honda. The Passport has also nice creases on the hood and dynamic character line on the side panels.

The model improves also the off-road capability with the lifted ride height and taller wheel arches than the larger Pilot. The Passport has the ride height of 8.4 inches and boasts also the better approach and departure angles than the larger cousin. The approach angle is 21,4 degrees and departure 27, 6 inches.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the Passport uses the design familiar from the larger Pilot and offer a similar equipment range. The same wheelbase as the three-row Pilot provides, however, competitive passenger and cargo space.  With the all five seats in function, the model provides 41,2 cubes of the cargo room while with no passengers in the rear row the capacity shrinks to 100 cubes. The model has also a number of storage compartments and plenty of the legroom in both rows.

As for the available equipment, the base model starts with the cloth upholstery, LED headlights, keyless ignition, etc. The standard equipment includes also the 7-inch TFT instrument cluster display, a 5-inch center screen, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, etc. The EX-L adds an 8-inch touchscreen with the smartphone support, leather upholstery, power tailgate, heated front seats, etc. The Touring improves with the heated rear seats, wi-fi hotspot, parking sensors, etc. The range-topping version has the cooled seats, heated steering wheel, unique trim accents and more.

Honda makes also the Passport safer with the standard systems like the adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, active lane control and lane departure warning. The blind-spot monitoring becomes the standard equipment in the EX-L and upper grades.

2020 Honda Passport

2020 Honda Passport: Performance

The 2020 Honda Passport adopts the Pilot-based underpinning and the same engine as well. A 3.5-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and torque of 262 pound-feet. The 9-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the front wheel by default. The available four-wheel drive and improved ride height compared to the three-row Pilot and combined with the shorter overhangs boost the off-road capability over the Pilot’s but the Passport remains the soft off-roader.

The Passport will also provide the good towing capability. The same platform and mechanics mean the same towing ratings as the Pilot SUV. The front-wheel-drive Passport allows up to 3, 500 pounds of towing. With the power on all wheels, the model can tow up to 5, 000 pounds.

2020 Honda Passport: Arrival, Price

Honda hasn’t revealed the price of the 2020 Honda Passport but we should expect the starting point just under $30, 000. The on-sale date will be early next year.

2019 BMW X6: Redesign, Changes, Price

BMW replaced the very popular but aging X5 with the new-generation model recently and now moving the focus to the coupe-like styled X6. The Sports Activity Coupe X6 was recently spotted testing in the disguised form but the model looks to be in the final production body and the version spotted seems to be the hot M50i.

Well, BMW hasn’t revealed details but the new third-generation X6 will unsurprisingly follow the suite of the recently redesigned X5. So, with the slightly restyled exterior, the new-gen X6 will benefit from the new architecture, updated engines, new interior, and tech. The model should appear sometime in mid-2019 and could even debut as the 2019 BMW X6 or more likely the 2020 model.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Design

As it is the case with the current generation, the new 2019 BMW X6 will build on the X5 model and add more excitement to the look with the coupe-like roofline. The spotted prototype of the new-generation X6 has a more athletic body and borrow from both the X5 and X4 models.

Up front, we can detect a larger kidney grille version like on the new X5 and both headlights and taillights are thinner and more modern. The more dynamic front end comes in the combination with the X4-inspired tailgate and attractive coupe roof style. The waistline and the rest of the bodywork looks similar to the new X5.

With the slightly revised exterior style, the X6 like the all-new X5 will switch to the new architecture and should also grow in size. The new-gen X5 gained inches in all directions and the wheelbase is also 1.6 inches longer. The similar treatment is expected for the sportier X6.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new X6 wasn’t yet in front of the spy camera but the cabin of the redesigned X5 surely gives us a clear picture about its look. The new-gen model will get the redesigned dash and center console alongside the higher quality materials.

The model will also follow the X5 regarding the available equipment. By default, there will be the digital instrument cluster and large center display. The newest iDrive operating system will also be integrated as well as the best of the active safety technologies.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Performance

When it comes to the engine options, the 2019 BMW X6 won’t also be the different story from the new X5. With the new architecture, the model will also introduce the updated engines.

The entry level will be the 40i model with the inline-6 engine. The 3.0-liter turbo unit will deliver around 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque like in the redesigned X5. The new X6 will again offer the buyers with the six-cylinder option and the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbocharged V-8 will make around 456 hp and torque up to 479 lb-ft.

The 8-speed automatic will transfer power to the all-wheel-drive system. Expect also the 60-mph run in about 5.3 seconds with the six-cylinder engine and around 4.6 seconds with the V-8.

2019 BMW X6: Arrival, Price

The 2019 BMW X6 should appear next spring and with the slightly increased price like the new X5.

2019 Nissan Xterra: News, Design, Release

With the recently redesigned Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco in the prospect, body-on-frame, off-road-focused SUVs gained the interest of buyers again. That is why Nissan might reconsider the return of the discontinued, off-road ready Nissan Xterra. The model based on the aged mid-size Frontier truck might return after the introduction of the new-generation Frontier and with the design inspired by the global Navara truck.

The rumors are circulating that after the introduction of the body-on-frame, seven-seat Terra SUV based on the Navara pickup truck in China and other Asian markets, Nissan might also offer the successor of the Xterra model alongside the redesigned Frontier truck. The new Terra SUV replaced the Paladin model which was the Xterra version for the Chinese market.  Now, since this model is based on global Navara truck which should be the base for the new-generation Frontier, there are chances that Nissan might introduce the replacement for the capable Xterra as well. According to some reports, the model could even arrive as the 2019 Nissan Xterra or without the X.

2019 Nissan Xterra

2019 Nissan Xterra: Design

As the last version of the Xterra model was based on the same architecture as the Frontier pickup, the new 2019 Nissan Xterra should also use the same recipe. Nissan hasn’t revealed details but the new Frontier truck should borrow heavily from the global Navara truck and the Terra SUV available in Asia also uses the Navara’s proven underpinning which also underpins the Mercedes X-Class pickup. And like the new Ranger truck shares the bones with the global model and will borrow the chassis to the new Bronco the global Navara should be the base of the 2019 Xterra or Terra or however it would be called.

With the similar underpinning, the new Xterra model should also share similar styling cues with the global Navara truck and Terra seven-seater. That means the new version of the V-motion grille combined with the new LED-accentuated headlights and sleeker front bumper. The side body sculpting should have pronounced fender flares and dynamic waistline.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the design should also follow the pattern of the global, mid-size truck. That should mean nicer materials and better comfort compared the dated Frontier truck and discontinued Xterra SUV.

The V-shaped center stack should come with the newest infotainment system and connectivity options. The model should also offer the luxury options and modern safety gear as well.

2019 Nissan Xterra

2019 Nissan Xterra: Powertrain

As for the engine options, the 2019 Nissan Xterra should share the same units as the new generation Frontier. Nissan promised the new V-6 engine for the redesigned Frontier and Titian trucks. The Xterra model would also use the same engine as well as the four-cylinder variant.

The global Navara-based Terra SUV goes with the petrol or diesel engines depending on the market. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder making around 183 hp is under the hood of the Chinese version. In other markets, this model can be had with the 2.3-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine from the Navara truck with 163 or 190 horsepower. The V-6 petrol is also available in some regions.

The US Xterra could also gain the diesel engine as this trend also was introduced with the new mid-size trucks. The new transmission should also improve the efficiency and off-road gear would be up to the task as well.

2019 Nissan Xterra: Arrival, Price

Nissan said that the new Terra model will go on sale in Asian and African markets but hasn’t promised the US replacement for the Xterra model. The rumors claim the model will arrive as the 2019 Nissan Xterra or latter after the introduction of the new Frontier.

2020 Buick Encore: Redesign, Changes, Release

Buick is working on the new generation Encore model and the
latest spy photos are the proof. The brand’s smallest, subcompact crossover has
proven on the market and Buick will try to support its increasing sales with
the new design and features. The model was all-new in 2013 and after the
refresh for 2017, the 2020 Buick Encore will enter the second generation.

Buick hasn’t yet disclosed what changes the new Encore hides under the camo but we should expect extensive upgrades in all aspects. The model will arrive on the upgraded platform and with the new exterior and cabin design. The new tech and convenience features will also appear in the redesigned version. The next Encore should, however, return with the same engine displacement while pairing it with the new automatic transmission. The twined version of the Encore, the Opel Mokka X goes on sale in the overseas market.

2020 Buick Encore

2020 Buick Encore: Platform and Design

Details about the redesigned 2020 Buick Encore are still
scarce and it isn’t yet clear what platform the model will use. The current GM
Gamma II Platform is shared with the current Mokka X and Chevy Trax and while
the new Mokka X will be based on PSA Group’s CMP small car platform, the new
Encore could borrow it under license or GM will use its underpinning for both
small Buick and Chevy models.

On the other hand, based on the spy photos, the new Encore
seems to have a slightly larger body which could also mean longer wheelbase and
more interior space. However, the new version will stay in the subcompact class
and therefore there won’t be big dimension changes.

The changes in model’s styling are also hard to identify. The rising beltline and slightly resculpted fender flares can be detected. Buick’s latest design language will define the styles of the grille and lighting units and they should be similar to what we can see on brand’s latest models. The tailgate seems also reshaped slightly and the roof line also looks slightly longer.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin of the smallest Buick crossover, we should
expect the new center cluster and instrument panel. Buick will also employ new
materials and textures and improve seat comfort.

The new generation version will also come with the new
connectivity and upgraded driver aids. All versions will use the latest
infotainment system with smartphone support and the model will also equip
keyless entry and ignition, power driver seat, and more in the base version.
The upper grades will add more sophisticated materials and comfort features.
The active driver aids should appear in more trims and with upgraded features.

It is also possible the inclusion of the high-class Avenir trim with the unique exterior and interior details and top-notch materials and electronic aids.

2020 Buick Encore

2020 Buick Encore: Powertrain

In the engine department, the new 2020 Buick Encore should
repeat a 1.4-liter engine displacement. A turbocharged unit is available in two
outputs in the current version with the base model producing 138 hp and more
powerful generating 153 hp. However, Buick should replace the current 6-speed
automatic transmission with the new 9-gear setup with possible upgrades to the
performance and efficiency.

The model will arrive again with the front- and all-wheel
drive. The fuel economy should remain around 30 mpg combined.

2020 Buick Encore: Arrival, Price

The redesigned 2020 Buick Encore will go on sale in late
2019 and price should stay close to the current range.

2020 Buick Envision: Changes, Design, Specs

The Chinese-built, mid-sized, five-seater Buick Envision is closing to the new model year after the 2019 refresh. While the model dropped the price for the recent mid-update it gained the updated styling and interior followed by the more powerful engine and the new 9-speed automatic transmission.

The next 2020 Buick Envision will continue to benefit from the mentioned upgrades and there won’t be major modifications before the next redesign probably for the 2022 version. The buyers should, however, expect new body color options and Buick might also make some of the advanced safety systems more accessible. The engine options and design will continue to the new model year in the same forms and the trim range should also stay in the same order.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Design

The 2020 Buick Envision will reprise the design theme of the current, refreshed version. The elegant, mid-size crossover gained the revised head and taillights for the recent refresh and the new grille version also adorns the front-end design. The waterfall design was discontinued in the favor of the sleeker chrome wing style.

The Envision has the sculpted rear-end design and profile lines and the sheet metal won’t change the structure and style before the next redesign. The new model year will, however, bring new color options and wheel design.

Interior, equipment:

The Envision changed just a few things inside the cabin for the recent refresh and the next version will stay in the same position as the current version regarding the cab style. The model will appear with the same control’s layout and material patterns. The trim range will likely stay as the current as well.

The Envision will deliver the new IntelliLink infotainment system with the 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility features in all grades. The standard equipment will also be the heated and power front seats, dual-zone climate control, a Wi-Fi hotspot and more. The new version could, however, broad the availability of some advanced safety systems for the new model year.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Powertrains

The 2020 Buick Envision will keep the current engine options and likely the same performance.

The base level powertrain will include a 2.5-liter non-turbo four-cylinder unit combined with the six-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque it delivers will remain at 197 hp and 192 pound-feet.

The more potent versions will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood. Buick updated the torque ratings of the engine for the recent mid-update and combines it also with the new 9-speed automatic transmission. This engine will provide 252 hp and torque of 295 pound-feet.

The front- and all-wheel drive options will again appear. The fuel economy will remain at around 25 combined with the base engine and FWD. The turbo-power version and AWD would return around 22 mpg combined.

2020 Buick Envision: Arrival, Price

While the refreshed 2019 version arrived with the lower prices the unchanged 2020 Buick Envision will likely cost slightly higher. The model will go on sale late in 2019.

2019 BMW X1: Refreshed, Changes, Price

BMW’s first in the lineup and fun to drive crossover, the X1 has been around since the 2016 model year in its second generation. With the fierce competition from Audi and Mercedes, BMW must keep the model fresh and the firm was spotted while testing the updated X1. The model will go on sale at some point in 2019 while should show what it has to offer later this year.

The 2019 BMW X1 will bring some visual upgrades, not radical judging by what we can conclude from the prototype version. Some updates will also be inside the cabin including the materials and tech while we don’t have details about what BMW has in mind regarding the powertrains.

2019 BMW X1

2019 BMW X1: Styling Changes

The small package crossover won’t bring radical styling changes with the next refresh. The prototype version of the 2019 BMW X1 has disguised front end section and rear bumper and like every mid-cycle update, this will also focus on the soft parts while the size and shape will remain at the same points.

The front side of the model seems to have sleeker kidney grille version bracketed by the new design headlights. The headlight graphics look like on brand’s latest models and the front bumper has slightly different sculpting as well.

The profile will display the same form with the sharp rising crease while the rear will also go with the tweaked bumper and the new graphics taillights.

Interior, Equipment:

In the cockpit, the small crossover BMW should offer fresh materials and new textures.  Expect the new steering wheel as well.

BMW will also do some improvements to the infotainment system and connectivity features while could also boost the safety technology.

The X1 will be well-equipped from the start and offer fog lights, automatic wipers, 18-inch wheels, driver memory setting, power tailgate, adjustable front seats and more as the base gear. The buyers will also be able to update with the M Sport design, sports suspension, premiums surround sound system, and more.

2019 BMW X1

2019 BMW X1: Powertrain

No details yet about BMW’s intents regarding the powertrain and potential upgrades. In the US the X1 packs the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with the 8-speed automatic transmission. The two- and four-drive are both available while the model returns around 25 mpg combined fuel economy.

With the capability of delivering 228 hp and 258 lb-ft combined with the precise steering and suspension, the model provides great driving dynamics but BMW will surely try to draw more from the refreshed 2019 BMW X1. So, we should expect some efficiency and performance improvements.

The plug-in hybrid version of this model is also expected sometime in the near future but not for the upcoming model year.

2019 BMW X1: Arrival, Price

The 2019 BMW X1 should uncover its secrets later in the year and go on sale in 2019. The current X1 starts from $33, 900 but BMW will make some price corrections and we should expect the price to go slightly up.

2020 Hyundai Palisade: Design, Specs, Release

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is the new name in the brand’s portfolio that debuted at the 2018 LA Auto Show. However, the all-new model is essentially the replacement of the three-row Santa Fe XL.

2020 Hyundai Palisade

2020 Hyundai Palisade: Powertrain

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade debuts with the single engine option. Like in the Santa Fe XL, the model gets the V-6 engine under the hood but the 3.8-liter Genesis-sourced displacement changes the 3.3-liter V-6 unit.

The model will be available with different wheel options ranging from 16- to 19 inches.

As for the 2020 Jeep Renegade, there won’t be anything new to see. Even the new plug-in hybrid version won’t differ much from the combustion engine-powered versions. The badging and a few other details will help to recognize the electrified model.

Interior, Equipment:

Jeep updated also the interior of the 2019 version and there won’t be major changes for the new model year. The recent refresh introduced the redesigned center stack and Jeep also improved the storage compartments.
