2011 GMC Acadia Images, Pricing and News (Denali, SLE, SLT

R&T Overview:

GM’s Acadia hits the family sweet spot with 7- or 8-passenger seating, front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive layout, and towing capacity of 5200 lb. The second-row Smart Slide system makes it easy to crawl in or out, and you don’t have to travel far down the option list to find a kid-friendly rear-seat entertainment system. Families who avoided the worst of the Great Recession’s carnage may want to examine the upscale Denali, which includes perforated leather seats with matching door trim, heated and cooled driver and passenger seats, a head-up display and Dual SkyScrape sunroof. GMC keeps things simple with a single powertrain configuration, a 288-bhp VVT V-6 with 6-speed automatic. For 2012, there are new colors and some formerly optional equipment is now standard.

2013 GMC Acadia Preview New SUV Preview 2013 GMC Acadia

R&T Overview:

The Yukon comes in three distinct flavors: a regular truck-based three-row SUV that's a Chevy Tahoe underneath the skin, complete with a 320-bhp 5.3- liter V-8; a 14-in.-longer version that's a Chevy Suburban underneath the skin; and an HD model with a stronger frame and a 352-bhp 6.0-liter V-8. There are also Denali models that feature a 403-bhp 6.2-liter V-8, as well as heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, retracting running boards and leather upholstery. The Denalis have a special sound-insulating package to make them quieter inside. These are not sissy trucks, though, since capable off-road packages are available with locking rear differentials, big tow hooks in the front and a front skid plate. The Hybrid Yukon and Denali get an impressive 20 mpg in the city.

2010 Kia Sorento Officially Debuts in Seoul (The Torque Report)

R&T Overview:

The Kia Sorento’s 2011 remake catapulted this CUV into the heart of the crossover wars. With its carlike ride, zesty appearance, numerous standard features, relatively spacious seating and cargo capacity, two (of three) punchy engines and an agreeable price structure, the Sorento makes its case to a wide audience. Three trim levels are offered—the base LX (with such standards as a/c and tilt-telescoping steering), the fiesty EX (adding interior accent illumination, dual automatic-temp controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and rear a/c on V-6 models), and the upscale LX with its generous luxury appointments. The 3.5L V-6 EX with all-wheel drive is the hot ticket. Frugal buyers can opt for the new Gasoline Direct Injected 2.4 or the so-so multiport injected 2.4. All engines receive a 6-speed automatic.

2012 Chevrolet Malibu | Car Walls

R&T Overview:

In the first quarter of 2012 we expect the new 2013 Malibu (photo) will begin production, and it boasts better performance for the base 4-cylinder version. To begin with, the new car is slightly shorter, yet a few inches wider. That will likely improve the rear seat room of this trim midsize sedan. Its 4-cylinder engine will grow from 2.4-liters to 2.5, bumping horsepower from 169 to a reported 190. The current trimly styled 5-seater is an all-around capable people-mover, with balanced handling, responsive controls and light-but-accurate electrically assisted steering on the base model. The best attribute of this Malibu is its available 3.6-liter 252-bhp V-6, which launches the car like a sports sedan but returns 26 mpg on the highway. Specifications are for the 2011 model.

Auto Car Information Blog Archive Chicago Auto Show 2011

R&T Overview:

The Hyundai Genesis has proven to be a launching pad for new technologies. For 2012 there is a 5.0-liter V-8 boasting 429 bhp, 8-speed automatic transmissions, and enhanced chassis tuning, plus the 3.8-liter V-6 enjoys a 15-percent boost in horsepower to 333 bhp. That seems like a lot, but the Genesis is a premier seller for the company and it continues to make strides in the luxury sedan field. Along with the mechanical improvements, there is also a fresh look to the front-end styling, redesigned rear fascia and taillights. And at the top of the Genesis family tree is the new 5.0 R-Spec model with significantly sportier chassis tuning.
