GMC Adds New Rugged Looks And Features For Acadia’s 2020 Revamp

As part of its 2020 model year refresh, GMC’s midsize Acadia crossover gains three engine options and three additional gears for its automatic transmission.

Ram Ups Its Half Ton Cargo Game With New Multi-Function Tailgate

Ram just announced a new “multifunction tailgate” for its 2019 Ram 1500, and it is thoroughly odd. Not only does the tailgate fold down like normal, but it also splits into two unequally-sized pieces, which can each swing out.

The successor to Mercedes-Benz’s first front-drive compact for America, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and CLA 250 4MATIC, is finally here. And – no surprise here – it looks like a scaled-down CLS-Class. It has the same low nose and roofline, although the CLA’s relatively larger taillights make the back look less heavy. The overhangs […]
