Lincoln_Navigator_Concept_04.0

Lincoln Copied Design of Bentley, Now It’s the Turn of Range Rover

Lincoln were said to have copied the design of Bentley a while ago and now it may be the turn of Range Rover.

Ford revealed the Lincoln Navigator concept and showed it off at the New York Auto Show. Now it has been said that Ford could have copied the Range Rover design too.

The concept of the Lincoln Navigator wasn’t even close to being production. The gullwing doors could arrive in the concept but they may be more subtle. The concept could end up being the new Navigator base, which is going to be coming out next year.

The concept had the 3.5 litre V6 Ecoboost engine which gives up 400 horses and 500lb-ft of torque. There was three seating rows in the Lincoln Navigator and the seating offers up Perfect Position seats.

Xiaomi Mi 5 vs iPhone 6S vs Samsung Galaxy S7 and Beats Both

The LG G5 along with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Xiaomi Mi 5 arrived at the MWC and the G5 was one of the most popular due to the fact that it was the first modular device to come out. The Samsung Galaxy S7 arrived and it has been popular but the Xiaomi Mi 5 has beaten the all for being the most popular.

In China the Xiaomi Mi 5 took 15 million registrations, while those internationally have been on the increase. We are hoping that the device isn’t going to be offered with a limited run.

China has more than one billion people and so you would think that being able to produce enough handsets for everyone would be a difficult task. Sometimes in big markets the supply is limited and should this happen we may see third party suppliers purchasing devices and then selling them on with a price tag that is higher.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the Xiaomi Mi 5 doesn’t suffer from being a limited run.

The Chevrolet Corvette Shows The Tesla Model S Who The Boss Really Is

Have you wondered whether or not the Chevrolet Corvette can travel faster than the Tesla Model S? If so then you don’t have to wait any longer as the Model S really gets shown just who the boss is.

The Chevrolet Corvette isn’t any typical vette as you might imagine. It comes from Genovation GXE and it is electric and it is now known as being the fastest street legal all electric vehicle.

The Chevrolet Corvette from Genovation GXE goes from standing still to 62mph in only 2.6 seconds and it reaches a top speed of 220mph. This is a vehicle that has been record breaking from day one and bear in mind that this is just a prototype right now.

The EV managed to set the speed record at 177mph and you can check it out below.

2017 Subaru Impreza Makes Life Hard For Honda Civic

With the Honda Civic having a lot to offer people you would think that it wouldn’t have any issues when in the USA. However thanks to the 2017 Subaru Impreza it is looking as though it’s not going to have it easy.

The Subaru Impreza isn’t going to be that easy to beat and more so if it ends up like the concept that we have seen. If this happens then the Honda Civic is going to have a hard time coming out ahead.

The Subaru Impreza concept has five doors and from what we have seen of it, it is a vehicle that is going to impress people. Should the production version remain in line with the concept then the Honda Civic is going to have something of a tough fight.

The Subaru Impreza may have the 2 Levorg engine but at the moment this is purely a rumor and you do have to take it with a dose of salt.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Looks May Mislead

When you first look at the 2017 Jeep Wrangler you may be forgiven for thinking that it is just the same as the one that came before it. This is thanks to the fact that the design isn’t anything that special.

Take a closer look though and you can see that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a new version as there are some things that differ between it and its predecessor.

One of the main things about the 2017 Jeep Wrangler that is different is the fact that the vehicle is now made from aluminium and this helps it to be lighter in weight.

From what we could see in spy shots the 2017 Jeep Wrangler comes with a new front end and the axles at the back and exhaust and suspension are also new. The Wrangler will come with the V6 Pentastar engine which is going to offer up automatic eight speed gearing.

The closer we get to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler coming our way the more we should hear about it.

Fallout 4 Automatron DLC Release Date Gets Dropped in Bombshell

It was said that Fallout 4 Automatron DLC would be coming out in March, but then March passed by and it never arrived. Now we are into April and still waiting.

The Fallout 4 Automatron DLC will bring robots to the game and we know that there is going to be robots attacking the Commonwealth. It also means that gamers are going to be able to make their own robots.

Bethesda has said that gamers should be able to customise robots in Fallout 4 Automatron DLC. They will be able to change the robots voice and use hundreds of mods.

Right now it hasn’t been made clear as to when the Fallout 4 Automatron DLC is coming our way but fingers crossed that it will be soon.

Nissan Titan vs 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: A Winner Is Chosen

It seems that people believe there is a true winner in the fight between the Nissan Titan and the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. But let’s see if you agree with the results from AutoGuide.

In recent tests on AutoGuide it was said that 60% of people asked would choose the Nissan Titan as opposed to the Ford F-150 Raptor.

The engine offered in the Nissan Titan is the 5 litre V8 and this gives up 310 horse power. The truck is able to tow 12, 310bs maximum and if you want to drive it you will have to pay out about $40, 290.

The engine on the Ford F-150 Raptor is the 6.2 litre and this is the V8 engine that offers up 411 horse power. When driving around the city you should be able to get about 11mpg from it and out on the highway you can get around 16mpg. You can tow a maximum of 6113lbs.

So would you choose the Ford F-150 Raptor or would you have gone for the Nissan Titan?

2016 Ford Focus RS

2016 Ford Focus RS Is Case of One, Two Oh No

The 2016 Ford Focus RS certainly isn’t the best vehicle to drive around in if you are looking for a drive that offers excitement and comfort. But if you are looking for a vehicle that offers five doors and which is perfect for all weather driving this may be the one.

The 2016 Ford Focus RS also offers a cabin that is very dull looking and some have called it bland and old fashioned.

Another downside is the bucket seating as this has you feeling as though you are sitting on a perch, while there is plenty of bobbing around when driving the car over uneven surfaces.

If you want a vehicle offers a ride that is comfortable and fast this may not be the best as there are many on the market that beat the 2016 Ford Focus RS.

HTC One M10: There Really Is Nothing To See Here At All

LG and Samsung are two of the big boys among phone makers and HTC wants to join them and they have the HTC One M10.

Photos and documents had been leaked about the HTC One M10 and they gave us suggestions that the device wasn’t going to offer up anything special when it came out.

HTC did reveal a teaser for the device and they said that the HTC One M10 would be coming with cameras on the back and front that would stand out among others.

The HTC One M10 camera was said to be 360 degrees with optical image stabilisation.

What are your thought about the HTC One M10 and its cameras, would you like the device in your pocket?

DOOM

Doom: The Open Beta Wasn’t All Good

Fans who were waiting to get their hands on the new version of Doom were pleased when a beta when live on April 15 but it seems that it wasn’t all good.

Bethesda revealed that gamers could play the beta without a code and it was running over 15 to 17 April.

The Doom beta version did come with some limits though and there were only two maps. The maps available in the beta were Inferno and Heatwave. There were restrictions on the gaming modes and the only ones were Team Death-Match and Warpath.

The developer of Doom said that the Snap-Map feature would only be revealed with the full version. This is something that allows players to creates new modes of Doom and share them with the rest of the community. The final version of the game is going to bring with it support for six multiplayer modes and it is said that it will support just about every type of gameplay.

ID Software said that they will be launching updates for content and this includes props, maps, objects, with many other features, such as editing tools and enhancements to the AI.

2016 Honda Civic Complaints Just Keep On Coming

Beans Are Spilt On 2017 Dodge Hellcat Lucifer

We were treated to a look at what was said to be the new engine for the 2017 Dodge Hellcat along with the Charger. Many people took the news from Hot Rod as being the truth when they said that a V8 engine would be missing thanks to the fact that electric vehicles are improving.

Now it looks as though the posting about the new engine for the 2017 Dodge Hellcat and Charger was just an April Fools Day joke. The engine that was shown was in fact the engine from the Mercedes Benz M278, the V8 twin-turbocharged engine.

It had been said that the engine would be the 707 horsepower Hellcat Hemi in the 2017 Dodge Hellcat and the Charger and many people would have liked to have seen that engine.

People would like to see the 800 horse engine in the 2017 Dodge Hellcat and Charger. While this might happen, one thing that we do know is that it would not be the same engine that was in the Mercedes Benz of 2010.

Subaru WRX

Subaru WRX: Sometimes The Throaty Sound Isn’t Always Good

Normally we love to hear the raw throaty sound of the Subaru WRX but sometimes it seems the roar isn’t always good. This is so thanks to the recall by Subaru of the 2015 and 2016 Forester XT WRX versions.

The recall is down to the turbocharger issue air intake duct which is on the affected 2 litre engines. It seems that the issue is down to it cracking and this may mean that the engine might stall and it could catch fire. It seems that about 18,200 vehicles may be affected by the recall and they include the Forester XT turbocharged vehicle in the US.

Subaru had the same issue with the stalling of engines last year and it was down to cracks in the turbocharged air intake. It was said that incorrect materials had been used when the vehicles were being produced. If the duct was to crack then it caused an idle sound in the engine and the power was reduced and it could lead to the engine stalling.

Owners of the affected Subaru WRX were asked to take the vehicle to the dealer and it would be inspected along with parts, free of charge.

New Subaru Crosstrek Isn’t Going Crossover, Its Going To Be Tall SUV

Subaru has told us that some departments within the company are going to be changed due to electrification of vehicles. This means that there is going to be management changes along with organizational ones. We are expecting the first new model in the electric range to be the Subaru Crosstrek plug-in hybrid.

What used to be known as the HEV Design Department of Subaru is now the Electrified Power Unit Design Dept. It seems that changes were needed to be in-line with the new global platform heading our way which is on the 2017 Subaru Impreza sedan which is coming with five doors.

The global platform means that departments have to be given new names and they are able to design the concept that is going to be seen on all vehicles heading our way in the future, which are going to be electric.

We are expecting a plug-in hybrid to come to North America and Subaru are working on complying with zero emissions for vehicle coming into effect in 2018.

It is thought that the new plug-in is going to be the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and it should be here in 2018.

Mercedes maybach SUV

Mercedes Maybach SUV Is Going Up Against Bentley Bentayga

People believe that the Mercedes Maybach SUV may be coming our way at the New York Auto Show and if it does they are expecting it to take on the Bentley Bentayga.

One of the board members of Mercedes Benz said that they were not going to rule out the fact that they would consider making an SUV. However they did go on to say that it would not have the base of the platform out now, instead it would be made on the next gen platform.

When you think about it, it would make a lot of sense for them to offer up an SUV as the luxury market SUV sector is thriving. We have seen vehicles such as the Bentley Bentayga and the Urus along with Project Cullian.

So what do you think? Could Mercedes be about to give us the Mercedes Maybach SUV to take on the other luxury SUVs already on the market?

The Ford F-150 Hybrid Is For All The Haters Out There

While we haven’t been given any formation info about the Ford F-150 Hybrid we believe that the vehicle is going to come with a small diesel engine and it will have the gas electric hybrid drive.

It was reported that spies saw the Ford F-150 hybrid in testing on the roads and despite the fact that the vehicle was kept under wrappings you could make out the front fenders. This tells us that the vehicle is a new hybrid.

If you take a good look at the fender you can clearly see that there is a break in the pattern of the camouflage and this tells us that this is where the vehicle is going to be plugged in.

The video gives us an indication of what the engine sounds like as you can hear it when the light goes to green and the Ford F-150 hybrid drives away. Bear in mind also that he regular Ford F-150 offers up stop and start technology, but in this case it doesn’t give much away.

However the person in the video did say that when the Ford F-150 hybrid hit the 25 mile mark the electric drive took over from the gas engine.

So does this mean that we have seen the Ford F-150 hybrid being tested for the first time? Check out the video and let us know what you think?

2016 Chevy Camaro May Be Pushed More Than Ford Mustang

The Chevrolet Corvette is offered with an extended warranty to protect owners who take their vehicles out onto the track and it has been this way since the 5th generation of the vehicle. Along with the Corvette vehicles also covered by the warranty include the ZL1 and Z28 along with the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS.

Owners of the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS may take their car out onto the track with the peace of mind of knowing that their vehicle is covered for mechanical failures. Of course the warranty is said to provide protection for testing only and not competition.

The Chevy Camaro 1LE is included in the warranty so this means that owners can take the vehicle for a ride around the track and have the same peace of mind of protection.

The extended warranty insurance for the 2016 Chevy Camaro does come with some conditions. The vehicle does have to be factory stock and this means that if you have ECU tuning on the vehicle it won’t be covered.

If you have the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and it is as you bought it then you can take the vehicle around the track and be covered for mechanical failure.

Borgward BX7

Borgward BX7: It’s A Case of Audi Q5 Meets BMW X3

The Borgward BX7 could be what you would get if you crossed the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

Borgward has been getting ready to take China by storm with the Borgward BX7 SUV. The vehicle is going to be heading to the Beijing Auto Show and we did get to see it at the Frankfurt show last year.

The Borgward BX7 offers a design that looks to be a mixture of the Audi Q5 along with the BMW X3 and the vehicle is all about design, safety and performance.

It comes with the 2 litre engine and this offers up 224PS along with 300 of torque, while the engine is seven speed dual clutch and this is automatic. The Borgward BX7 is able to reach 62mph in only 10 seconds.

Android marshmallow

Verizon Version of Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4 To Get Marshmallow Update

Owners of the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 along with the Note 4 are looking forward to getting the update to Marshmallow.

We did hear that the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta version has been in testing and carriers were said to have launched the Marshmallow update in April.

Of course owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5 don’t have to wait for the official update as there has been a custom version of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow ROM available.

The custom ROM is for the G900F version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE. The update is said to bring more stability to the handset along with helping to improve the performance of it.

Go For Microsoft Surface 5 When It Arrives Or Go With Pro 4?

Both the Microsoft Surface Book and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 are great devices that are loved by the tech market. However now people have started to wonder what the Microsoft Surface 5 might look like when it arrives. It has been said that the device may even outshine such as devices from Samsung and Apple.

The Microsoft Surface 5 is said to be better looking than previous models and a lot of attention has been given to the stylus. We have seen a patent that tells us that the vehicle comes with a rechargeable stylus with magnetic connection.

People have been wondering what upgrades the Microsoft Surface 5 might bring with it. Some people have said that if the only change is the rechargeable stylus then it may not be worth making the upgrade. This is down to the fact that the Surface Pro 4 offers a stylus, albeit not a rechargeable one.

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Microsoft Surface 5 but would you make the update to it if the only difference was the rechargeable stylus?
