What we know about the 2018 Maserati Ghibli

Most, if not all luxury automakers keep news of imminent vehicle releases confined to a few hand-picked executives that cross several company departments. You typically hear veiled references to 2018 models at auto industry shows, especially the big ones held in Tokyo and New York

Therefore, we have to rely on rumors to patch together a description for the 2018 Maserati Ghibli.

2019 might appear to be off the design radar screens of automakers, but in the industry, plans for future models often start years before the year where everyone gets down to business to finalize a car’s specifications. Well, we are approaching the year when Audi has to get down to business for the 2019 Audi Q4.

Audi Makes Its Mark in the SUV Niche

The buzz generated by the 2018 Jeep Cherokee

The word “Buzz” gets thrown a lot, especially when it comes to hearing rumors about the release of 2018 vehicle models. Perhaps no other vehicle receives more pre-release scrutiny than the scrutiny received by the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. With the FCA group officially making the announcement that the focus of the company will be on their most popular crossover, the first question asked by consumers and automotive analysts is “What will the specs be?”

What models does Hyundai have planned for the luxury brand Genesis?

Sometimes, you have to cobble together several bits and pieces of information to determine if an automotive industry rumor is true, or at least has some validity. The principle for bringing together different sourced information rings true for trying to determine what Hyundai has in store for the luxury brand Genesis.

Unorthodox doors make the Mercedes-Benz / AMG collaboration even more strange.

Nobody that works in the automobile industry thinks the Project One collaboration between AMG and Mercedes-Benz makes sense on any front, especially the logistical front. When the Mercedes-AMG collaboration introduced the successor to the SLS AMG, the only feature missing from the elaborate design was the installation of gullwing doors. Mercedes-Benz most likely made the decision to eschew installing gullwing door to make the vehicle more appealing to a wide range of potential buyers that would choose to purchase a less attention-grabbing version of the AMG GT.

Take a step back from the 2018 Honda Civic SI: Not as powerful as we thought

Gil Grissom of CSI fame uttered the memorable quote “Tell me something I don’t know” numerous times to encourage his team of investigators to think outside of the box. We want to invoke our inner Grissom when it comes to the 2018 Honda Civic Si. If you told us that the new Honda Civic Si is going to be more powerful than any SI ever rolled off assembly lines, we would respond, “Tell us something we don’t known.”

If you told us the opposite, that the 2018 Si is going to be less powerful than expected, you would immediately grab our attention.

American consumers have little to no shot at buying the 2018 Audi RS6 Avant

Sometimes, we wish an automotive industry rumor never comes true. Such is the case with the Audi RS6 Avant. American consumers do not have a lot of choices when it comes to purchasing high-performance station wagons, as American automakers avoid designing and manufacturing wagons to pursue the development of more profitable SUVs. American consumers are partly to blame for the station wagon shortage, as demand for SUVs is much stronger.

Nissan reportedly not manufacturing a successor to the 370Z

Automotive analysts and enthusiasts have pleaded with Nissan to update the auto manufacturers wildly popular 370Z sports car. Either Nissan has not heard the voices from a rapidly growing number of owners of the 370Z, or the company simply wants to turn into a boring brand that loses its most important demographic.

Mercedes-Benz to the rescue for Aston-Martin

It is no rumor that Aston-Martin wants to compete with the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, and Rolls-Royce. In fact, the luxury automaker has not been shy about promoting its intent to release up to seven new models over the next seven years. That is pretty ambitious for an automaker renowned for playing it close to the financial hip. The DB11 that Aston Martin unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show signals the massive change the company plans to make in its operating approach.
