BMW 8 Series concept previews next great luxury coupe

BMW's answer to evaporating demand for luxury coupes like its 6 Series looks simple: bigger, more styling, more space, more luxury, and a higher number in the name. Due to arrive as a production car next year, the Concept 8 Series is an example of BMW's new push toward a richer model mix and higher profit margins, while putting less focus on volume at the bottom end of its range. This is the car that formed the basis of the sketch BMW teased recently. It debuted at the Villa d'Este Concorso…
Sources say the concept runs a V12.

Leaked Tesla product sheet reveals Model 3's performance, range

As we approach the official launch of the Tesla Model 3, we can expect information to emerge through official channels or otherwise. The following details fall under the "otherwise" category, as a member of the Model 3 Owners Club forum (allegedly an "inside source") leaked a product sheet comparing the Model 3 to the Model S, as Inside EVs reports. Interestingly, the chart seems to be more of an attempt to sell the Model S than the newer, smaller vehicle. Let's start with the key Model 3…

What you're looking at is no ordinary limo. Look past the swirly camouflage and you'll see what appears to be a Cadillac, but don't let those looks fool you. This is the new Beast, otherwise known as Cadillac One, and codenamed by the Secret Service as Stagecoach. This is the car that will shuttle President Trump to and fro. It's hard to get a sense of scale from these images, but this car is huge. It's very likely built atop a heavy-duty truck platform, which is necessary due to the thick…
The Beast 2.0 is a Cadillac in name only.

GM is the latest automaker accused of diesel emissions cheating

Volkswagen and Ram need to make room on the diesel-emissions bench for General Motors. America's largest automaker was accused in a lawsuit on Thursday of rigging hundreds of thousands of diesel trucks with at least three so-called defeat devices to ensure that the trucks would meet federal and state emission standards, even if they generated more pollution in real-world driving.

Predictable is good | 2017 Kia Sorento Quick Spin

It's been a while since we've tested the latest Kia Sorento, and we've never reviewed the V6 model. That's a shame. It's comfortable, drives well, and offers a lot of features. It's one of Kia's best-sellers, though sales have slipped as competitors roll out fresher models. Still, with consumers flocking to crossovers, the Sorento remains a critical vehicle for Kia. We spent a couple of days running around metro Detroit in the top trim SXL V6 model, which starts at $46,595. With optional Snow…
There's plenty of room in this thing, too.
