The Turbo Diesel Reaches For the Skies
Aug 13, 2014 - 12:23 PM - by xcel
And grabs it none too soon.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Aug 13, 2014

First production Cessna Turbo Skylane 182 JT-A goes wheels up for the first time.

In late May, Cessna announced the first production flight of its Turbo Skylane 182 JT-A. What was different is that this plane has the distinction of being the first modern single engine aircraft powered by a turbo diesel engine specifically designed to run on Jet-A fuel.

Avgas is typically used to fuel most single engine aircraft, but the fuel is becoming scarce, expensive, and even unavailable in... [Read More]

2015 Chrysler 200 during the IIHS Small Overlap. IIHS: “the driver’s space was maintained well, and injury measures recorded on the dummy indicated a low risk of any significant injuries in a real-world crash of this severity.”

The 2015 Chrysler 200 debuted with a modern exterior featuring the new “face” of the Chrysler brand. It also features the 3.6L Pentastar V6 mated to a segment-first 9-speed AT and full electronic shifting with an... [Read More]

Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Aug 11, 2014

2014 Nissan LEAF performs poorly in the IIHS Small Overlap Crash Test with significant intrusion leaving little survival space for the dummy, meaning likely knee and leg injuries. The LEAF earned a poor rating.

2016 Kia Sorento
Aug 10, 2014 - 11:51 PM - by xcel
First official media photos of the third generation Sorento.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Aug 10, 2014

A new swept-back rear upper quarter and new grille is the highlights. And like the rest of the all-new or significantly refreshed Kia lineup, the all-new Sorento is longer, lower and wider.

The new look is an evolution of the current vehicle with a long hood and the distinctive treatment of the current generations D-pillars.

The exterior styling of the new Sorento was led by Kia’s Namyang design studio in Korea, with significant levels of input from the brand’s Frankfurt, Germany and Irvine, California design studios.

Aug 07, 2014 - 12:15 PM - by xcel
Just a tease right now but expect something “groundbreaking” when it arrives.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Aug 7, 2014

As the current gen moves to the next, GMs buying power and economy of scale should provide a hint as to the future of the automobile.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado extended cab - $20,995 to start incl. D&H and a DI 200 hp 2.5L I4 mated to a 6-speed MT. <-- Before the 2.8L Duramax turbo diesel arrives, I think we could work with that stick.

Available drivetrain and feature options will include a DI 305 hp 3.6L V-6 mated to a 6-speed... [Read More]

2015 Toyota Prius Persona Edition - $26,985 to start and continues to be the only 50 mpg combined rating car available in North America.

The 3rd generation Prius will continue to be known for its 50 mpg combined result and the leading environmentally friendly car available to the masses long after it is gone. We have driven almost every trim in a variety of locals and the one thing that continues to impress is its exceptionally low fuel consumption.
