New Sedan and Truck for 2015
The great thing about the turn of the year is the fact that newer cars and inventions should be revealed or made into production; and that’s exactly what happens in the auto industry with 2015 is waiting just around the corner. Newer and fresher cars and their variants have been waiting for release, introduction, and production – some of them have even been made and tested, so you can really expect seeing some of the promising and new creations soon enough.
Although this car has been designed and set for 2016 variant, the model has been introduced in this 2014, with production and release date expected to happen in 2015. And why shouldn’t Cadillac make this car available soon enough? With nice design and promising features, it seems that this car will be making a remarkable appearance sweep off the entire auto market.
Seeing the various promising features and luxurious arrangement, it is not really surprising if this baby can reach top speed up to 200 mph. You may see a regular four-door sedan from the outside, but if you look closer, you will see very buff and solid structure with sleek lines and just the right curves. Based on the Z06 Corvette design, this CTS-V is running on supercharged V8 engine with 6.2 liter capacity that is delivering 640 hp of power. It is able to reach 60 mph within 3.7 seconds, which is quite impressive.
All these impressive performance is due to the fact that Eaton 1.7 liter supercharger, forget connecting rods, titanium intake valves, and also forged aluminum pistons have been combined together to deliver top-notch performances. With such promising power matched up with auto eight-speed transmission, you can really expect smooth and easy to control enjoyment. There is no option for manual transmission, but you won’t have to worry about the comfort of driving as electronic Vette’s limited slip different control makes everything smoother and easier. The steering wheel is solid, and yet it allows you to control the ride easily.
If you take a look at the specs in details, you can see that this ride is designed to compete against E63 AMG from Beemer and also the M5 from the same brand. And the cool thing about this ride is the fact that Cadillac has planned everything in very detailed and careful manner; for them it is not just about top speed and power, but also about the whole unity and balance of the performance, design, and also features.
This variant will be coming with three different trims, but all the three will house aluminum wheels with 19 inches size, Michelin Pilot Sport rubber, front aluminum tower brace, an aluminum colossal shear panel, and also V braces for the strut tower firewall. For the safety features, you can expect Brembo iron discs, damper control, rear and front suspension, and also helpful Magnetic Ride Control to improve easiness and comfort while driving.
However, the added features have made this special variant heavier than the previous 2014 model, but still lighter than the AMG E63 or even the M5 from Beemer. Despite the added weight, Cadillac claims that they aren’t really worried about it because they have added performance for the entertainment system. When you have leather sporty seats – along with ventilation and heating features – navigation system, OnStar Connection, audio system from Bose, and colorful display system, you will forget about the heavy ride and focus on the entertainment perks. You can also enjoy the panoramic sunroof, carbon fiber finish, lane keeping assistant, auto parking feature, and also forward collision warning technology. There are still more to expect, so stay tune!
4500 RAM HD 4×4 Crew Cab
If you want a solid and reliable truck for passengers and cargo, this is the ride to have. Having a Crew Cab means that you can still accommodate loads of passengers as well as cargo, and you can be sure that this ride is able to deliver what you want in the most spacious way.
If you want a big and huge truck that will deliver menace and threat into the street, you are looking at the right ride. You will have to consider about the size when you are looking for a parking spot. But with such size and the right size, you can definitely create a menacing and aggressive vehicle without compromising style and fashion – and also performance. Not to mention with 11 feet flatbed, 4 doors arrangement, and also 200” of wheelbase, this truck is solid and sturdy. However, the flatbed doesn’t come with the package. You are given the option to have it, or choose between a dump bed and a utility bed. Moreover, you will have to prepare a budget of $3500 for the flatbed – and that’s for the basic bed alone.
However, the control is unbelievably superb. You probably think that such huge load will be a handful to deal with, but maneuver and control are exceptionally easy and light. Dealing with corners is such a breeze, so you can imagine how it is when dealing with easy road terrain. It is quite understandable if such huge ride will be a bit sluggish – just a bit, though – since it is still able to reach 60 mph within 12 seconds. Towing ability is around 16,000 pounds, while the one with diesel is around 25,000 pounds.
The truck is running on V8 engine with 6.4 liter capacity delivering 370 hp of power, but don’t really expect fuel economy system. However, if you are hoping for a really tough and powerful ride – probably enough to yank a tree, this is the vehicle that you are looking for. After all, the combination of four wheel driving system and five-ton weight can create such significant damage.
Nevertheless, it is a not a perfect ride as there are loads of flaws and downsides that may affect your enjoyment. Think carefully about having this monstrous truck. But if you like having a monster that will make everyone clear out themselves from your path, this is definitely the perfect option for you.
Promising New Variants for 2015 Cars
It always happens every year: new rides being produced, while the old ones are being replaced. It doesn’t matter, anyhow, because you get to see new development and new improvement from year to year. Not to mention that newer technologies for the sake of comfort and convenience are improved on yearly bases to make these rides more enjoyable to drive around.
Some of these rides are totally new inventions and creations; they are made from scratches and scraps. Some, however, aren’t really new because they are developed from the previous designs and styles. Whether your favorite ride is – and how they are made available for the buyers – keep in mind that they have gone through complicated and intricate process to really satisfy you as consumers or buyers. There are some options of these new productions that you may want to take a look for a while.
The SS Manual from Chevrolet
Yes, you heard that right. There is a new 2015 SS Manual from Chevy, developed from the 2014 SS variant. The problem with the previous ride is the fact that it didn’t come with any manual shift at all. Don’t get me wrong, the ride is smooth and promising – and it is highly satisfying – but the absence of manual shift really compromised everything. Learning from their past mistake, Chevy decided that they should do something about it and improve what they don’t get right, so they make the special manual variant.
The design is basically still the same. This sedan is still big with enough room for the interior cabin. When the rear wheel driving system is paired up with the manual 6 speed transmissions, you can enjoy very satisfying performance. Shifting process is fast and smooth, the ride is cool and quiet, and you can also avoid the gas tax, thanks to the manual shift arrangement. The previous one came with Magnetic Ride Control to make maneuver and drive easy, and the new one comes with improved quality and performance. For this manual variant, safety features are improved, like having the Brembo rear brake as well as the front one.
You don’t need to worry about the power because it is running on V8 engine producing 415 hp of power – pretty impressive. There is a nice roar when you push the gas a bit, enough to claim itself as a masculine and manly ride. The starting price is around $47,000 but it is worth it for such powerful and reliable 2015 car that offers a lot. New colors are introduced for this variant, including Blue Perfect as well as Purple Alchemy.
Like others, there are some great points about this ride as well as several possible flaws. For instance, the great thing about this ride is the availability of the magnetic shocks, along with manual transmission options and also powerful and masculine V8 engine. The downsides, however, is the fact that there aren’t many of this variant being produced; not to mention that Chevy is putting too much emphasis on the shiny bits and accessories. But on overall look and performance, this baby is a beauty and you can enjoy loads of perks – if you don’t really mind the flaws.
V8 F-Type Roadster S from Jaguar
Who doesn’t know about the good name of Jaguar? Not only it is always associated with sporty exclusive ride with punchy power and reliable performance, it is always identical with promising smooth and comfy setting. The base variant is running on V8 engine with 3.0 liter capacity that is producing 380 hp of power. But it seems that Jaguar is tweaking the machine a little bit, and finally come with V8 supercharged engine with 5.0 liter capacity that is producing 495 hp of power for this S line. Pretty impressive improvement from the speed department. However, the tag price also changes, from the base $70,000 to $93,000 for this S variant.
If you want to pimp up the ride, you can order the Performance package, which will cost you $300, to get sport exhaust system, red brake caliper, steering wheel, performance wheel, and also switch feature allowing you to alternate your driving mode from Winter and Sport. If you are willing to spend another $2100, you can get additional adaptive headlights as well as parking camera. But feel free to choose Wind Deflector Premium Package (cost you $200), heated seats and also steering wheel ($600), or the HD and satellite radio (another $450). In short, if you want all the good-looking accessories and the additional features, it will cost you total $102,000 for the job. Yes, it is quite a huge spending, but it will be worth it from the sake of comfort and also style.
In the overall sense, the 2015 new car is promising with very good performance and smooth control. The greatest point from this sporty ride is the fact that the design remains good and flawless; you can really tell that it is highly exclusive and expensive, and also the roaring powerful engine. It is a good thing that Jaguar decides to still use the V8 engine, despite the new improvement and tweak. Although it is coming with auto transmission, you can really expect smooth and flawless outcome; no more lag, no more delay, and no more odd sensation of clunky or clumsy result.
However, like all the good stuffs, there are some flaws that you should be aware of. Because of the high-end design and the top notch performance, you should be very careful not to make any damage. Repair is costly and you are guaranteed to spend tons of money – but you should be expecting that when you buy any expensive or luxurious ride. Moreover, the exhaust system is rather vulnerable, although it won’t affect the growling effect produced by it. But those are the only not-very-promising things about the ride. Oh, if you like orange, it is a good thing that this variant comes in bright orange cover, but if you don’t like it….well, learn to love it or you will be dealing with costly spending for changing everything.
The V6 Chrysler 300 for 2015
It’s a happy time when Chrysler decided to do something about their new 300 variant for the upcoming 2015. It is also a good thing that Chrysler is sensible enough to tweak the features – although not much on the styling – to make things rights.
Just to jog your memory, the first 300 were introduced in 2005 and it was a catch that time. Why not? With full size dimension, V6 engine (along with the V8 Hemi powertrain), rear wheel driving system, and Bentley look alike styling, the 300 were truly a sight for sore eyes. However, their second gen 300 that was released in 2011 was so promising, although they have added auto 8-speed transmission and V6 Pentastar engine with 3.6-liter capacity that is delivering 292 hp of power. At that time, the 300 was no longer considered appealing, leaving behind Chevy Impala, Toyota Avalon, and Dodge Charger.
However, for the 2015 cars released, Chrysler is determined to make up what they have done wrong in the past. The car comes with revised and improved fascia, newer designed tail lamps, and bigger grille with mesh inset integrated with the floating badge. The original design as still the same – unlike Dodge Charger than underwent complete make-up transformation – but some of the key features are made better and improved.
For a starter, there are some changes happening on the interior cabin. You can expect newer instrument cluster with handy information display, soft and plush leather trim, and also Uconnect touchscreen system with its 8.4 inch in size. Despite the firmness, the seats are pretty comfy and plush. There is a cute color play with the contract palette scheme that will make everything more interesting and somewhat whimsical. Different trims are available for different variants. If you want sportier look, you should choose 300S, while the 300C is for the premium and luxurious model. The highest variant is the Platinum, where you can enjoy highly comfy interior cabin with its open pore wooden trim, quilted leather, and sophisticated entertainment system.
The ride is running on V6 engine, with all wheels driving system for the Limited and the rear wheel driving option for the 300S. 300S is running on V6 engine with 3.6 liter capacity that is delivering 300 hp of power. When it is matched up with auto 8-speed transmission, rough and sloping terrain can be dealt with easily. You can get 19” wheels with all season tires and Touring suspension. If you purchase the 300S, you can get Sport suspension that delivers better bumps absorption for better comfort. Along with it, you can also enjoy electric power steering feature, sport button, and linkages for stiffer suspension.
Of course, the price tags will be different for each variant. The V6 Chrysler 300 is start selling from $32,500, while the Platinum 300C deluxe will be sold for around $43,500. If you want to add the all wheel driving system, you will need to add another $2500. In overall sense, this Chrysler is worth considering if you want to have an exclusive ride without having to spend a fortune – well, at least less than $50,000.
Overall Review for Lexus RC F 2015
There are so many different opinions about the new Lexus RC F 2015 variant, with some people are saying positive things, and some are saying exactly the opposite. Although there are some impressive features delivered by this new variant, there are some things that can be developed more – not to mention that the idea of creation can run so much better.
From the design alone, this ride is somewhat similar to those luxurious and exclusive sporty European brands with the sleek design and the stylish good looking factor. Some people have different opinions about the color – orange isn’t their thing, anyway – while some are okay with it. But with aggressive front side fender – and the other integrated headlight, grille, and hood – and the rounded curves here and there, it doesn’t disappoint – from the exterior side perspective. This is one of the main reasons why Lexus is brave enough to lay out the pricing base around $63,000, and the highest one reaches $80,000 – around that number, anyway.
If you take a look at the interior cabin, you will see this exclusive and expensive leather seats with organic stitching mode and pattern. For some people, however, the exclusive seats are the main attractive point because there are no other interesting factors to expect. If this is your first sporty ride, then you will feel that everything is enough – and the arrangement is luxurious and exclusive enough. However, those who have dealt with different sporty rides feel that this Lexus is quite plain and doesn’t offer something unique or different. It is not boring; it is just plain.
However, Lexus is smart enough to include power and performance into the arrangement. It is running on powerful V8 engine with 5.0 liter capacity that is delivering 467 hp of power. Lexus has been tweaking with rear limited slip differential from Torsen, bigger Brembo brakes, and also adaptive shock absorbed with firmer springs to deliver sturdy and solid performance without compromising comfort. It is able to reach 60 mph within 4.5 seconds, which is okay. But when compared to M3 that is able to reach 60 mph within 3.9 seconds only, this Lexus will certainly be left behind. The weight is solid, providing platform for the sturdiness, and it is able to handle tricky corners in very subtle way. The Lexus is equipped with automatic 8 speed transmission, with manual one as the optional feature. For road setting, the auto transmission is responsive and good enough – it is smooth and well blend. But if you are looking for the racing ability and speed, manual transmission will be the better option.
Keep in mind that this variant is pricier than the regular Lexus products, so you may want to consider the price range in case you are interested in having one. For the basic package of $5500, you will get carbon fiber roof, special wheel design, and also carbon rear spoiler. If you choose the Premium package, you will get premium LED headlamps, blind spot monitoring system, ventilated and heated front seats, rear traffic alert, and park assist technology.
