Get your 2016 Nissan Murano for $30,560

By: Autoweek on 12/28/2015

Murano sales are up 30 percent through the first 11 months of 2015.

The 2016 Nissan Murano, on sale now, starts at $30,560 for the S front-wheel drive trim. That’s a $115 bump from last year. Going all-wheel drive and Platinum trim will set you back $41,600, including destination.

The third-generation Murano debuted last year, so there isn’t much change in equipment or power for 2016. A 3.5-liter V6 pulls the car along with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. The Murano still uses the VQ engine, which will be replaced by the new and more powerful VR series of engines in the coming years. Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission, better than most, will send power to the front or all four wheels. Mileage is somehow the same in both versions, according to Nissan at 21 mpg city, 28 highway and 24 combined.

Available interior features include NissanConnect with navigation, an 8-inch color display, Nissan’s Around View Monitor, power driver’s seat, satellite radio, keyless entry, iPod interface, an 11-speaker premium audio system, and Bluetooth. The Technology Package is offered on the SL and Platinum trims, navigation is available on all trims while the Premium Package on the SV and higher.

As for cargo space, the Murano offers about 32 cubic feet with the second row up, 67 cubic feet with it down. The tow rating is a modest 1,500 pounds.

The Murano is full of safety features including blind spot warning, forward collision warning, forward emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert and more.

TVR makes progress on new Cosworth V8, teases owners with Autocar's sketch

12/29/2015

TVR, the boutique British automaker run aground in 2006 after purchase by a Russian oligarch, is back with plenty of deposits on an undisclosed coupe and a teaser image photoshopped from an Autocar magazine sketch. The fledgeling car company is at work on a new coupe powered by a Cosworth V8 with an expected output of 450 to 500 hp, though it won't be until 2018 that customers will be able to take delivery of the cars. The factory has to be built first, even though the first year's allocation is already sold out.

TVR Chairman Les Edgar gave the future owners of the new coupe a progress report, stating that the company is running at least one engineering mule that has been operating on roads, and that they've recently fired up one of the Cosworth V8s.

Watch F1 cars rip up a mountain in Japan

12/29/2015

Two ex-Formula One cars plus one mountain road equals an epic video shot in Japan by Motor Head Magazine.

It's not too often you see open-wheel cars on public roads -- the Stallone vehicle "Driven" notwithstanding -- but something about it makes the cars look even better than when they're on the racetrack. After the F1 cars have a go, they're followed by some drifters who are nearly as impressive.

The camerawork is also great, so check out more of Motor Head's stuff here.

2016 Dodge Challenger SXT review

12/27/2015

It’s not fair to let the motor dominate the conversation about this 2016 Dodge Challenger. It’s a fine car without the Hemi, carrying its retro lines with enough confidence to offset its substantial visual bulk, and the new running lights/front fascia design and wide range of color/decal packages don’t hurt, either. FCA’s new interior refinements have, by this point, replaced nearly all of the unpleasant, crappy old plastics with better materials. The big-screened Uconnect entertainment system remains fast, functional and fairly intuitive (even if it would be nice to have a few buttons for features like seat warmers).

Even the LX platform, which is probably getting high enough up there in its years to be referred to as venerable, is as predictable and as fun as ever. Once you find a corner, it’s like swinging a sledge hammer: let the tool do the work. At its best, this a muscle machine that, unlike the newest pony cars from Ford and Chevrolet, doesn’t even pretend to look too far forward. I’m okay with that.

Infiniti adds a new engine family to its lineup -- starting with the Q50 sedan.
