Rev me, I'm Irish

According to BASF, neutral and blue may be the paint colors of the future. Fine, but it's St. Patrick's Day, so the 2019 Ford Mustang is getting a fresh new paint option, Need for Green. It's a nice, bright counter to the dark Highland Green paint on the upcoming 2019 Bullitt Mustang and would be just as comfortable gracing the bodywork of a Lamborghini as it is on Ford's pony car.


Here's what Aston's latest V-name means

It seems a distinct possibility that the name of Aston Martin's upcoming SUV will not remain "DBX," as it has been known. The British Autocar reports that the manufacturer has earmarked the name Varekai for it, which would certainly tie in nicely with the company's earlier V-named products.


Praise be to Recaro, bringer of bolsters and thigh support

We all know the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a truly wonderful car. It takes everything delightful about cars and driving and distills it into a compact and lightweight package. It's a car anyone can enjoy. My wife, who until recently has shown no real interest in sports cars beyond their design, wants one. I want one, too, but I couldn't get past the Miata's terrible seats. For 2018, there's finally an alternative.


Tank brackets on 2009-2012 Ram pickups can fail from rust

Drive a Ram 1500? Maybe it's time to give your fuel tanks a look. FCA is issuing a voluntary recall of over 270,000 Ram 1500 pickups to prevent their fuel tanks from sagging.

Spy Shots

It's not dead yet

We recently heard that the Audi R8 supercar doesn't have a bright future, with no new generation on the horizon. But it seems like we're still going to have plenty of time with the current generation, and Audi isn't going to just let it sit. As the spy photos above show, the company is working on an updated version of the current model.


The Phaeton never got a wagon, but the Arteon might

Volkswagen's flagship Arteon may not be the flight of fancy the venerable Phaeton was, but it might have one trick up its sleeve, one the Phaeton never got. The British AutoExpress is reporting that the Arteon is going to get a shooting brake version, and another addition to the Arteon portfolio could be the 3.6-liter V6 engine that's currently fitted in the Atlas SUV.

Quick Spin

We tried living with the smaller trail-rated Jeep

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is the smaller sibling to the Cherokee off-roader. They look a lot alike, and generally that seems to be a good thing. We spent some time with it, both in Michigan and the Pacific Northwest. It seemed like the perfect little ute to tackle rain and late snow, as well as the cratered roads surrounding Detroit every spring. Here's what we thought after spending some quality time together.


F-150 and Mustang hybrids will come to U.S.

Yesterday, Ford offered up a buffet of information. Along with Bronco news, GT500 teasing and the announcement of Ford Co-Pilot360 driver assistance becoming standard across its entire lineup, Ford also reaffirmed its commitment to electrification. Specifically, the company announced an $11 billion investment in electrification, reiterating plans to introduce 13 new electrified vehicles around the world in the next five years.


Plenty of room to discuss world domination in quiet comfort

For decades, Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-Maybach cars have been the ride of choice for leaders across the globe, presidents, ambassadors, dictators and despots alike. The Pullman model — a long-wheelbase six-seat variant — has been particularly popular with this select clientele. This week, the German automaker announced the latest version of the car, the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman S650.


It's a Bolt with technology bolted on — but no steering wheel or pedals

General Motors has announced that the fully autonomous Cruise AV will go into production in 2019. GM will invest more then $100 million to build the Bolt-based, self-driving EV at the Orion Township assembly plant in Michigan, alongside the standard Bolt and the Sonic. The roof modules containing lidar arrays, cameras, radar, and other sensors for the Cruise AV will be manufactured at the Brownstown Battery Assembly Plant. GM says this is "the first production-ready vehicle built from the start


Gandys puts logo on driver protective device, will make Halo footwear

If you can't hide it, embrace it. When the Halo safety device was mandated for Formula One cars this year, many were quick to draw parallels with the structure's eccentric looks and a flip-flop shoe. Now it seems McLaren is in on the joke, as it has joined forces with a flip-flop manufacturer.
