Williams announced earlier this month that it would launch its new car for the coming season on 5 March, but has opted to give it a first on-track test prior to its unveiling. In a teaser video posted to social media on Wednesday, Williams showed the FW43B car running at Silverstone in damp conditions, making it the second team known to have conducted a shakedown with its 2021 car. McLaren held a shakedown with its 2021 car at Silverstone on Tuesday after unveiling the MCL35M model one day earlier. Nicholas Latifi was shown watching teammate George Russell testing the car, with teams limited to just 100km of running under the filming day regulations, or equivalent to 17 laps of the Silverstone circuit. Although the car was blurred, it appeared to be running in a dark livery, straying away from the white design that was raced with last year. Williams has previously used a navy blue livery through pre-season before launching its race design for the start of the … [Read more...] about Williams F1 completes FW43B shakedown at Silverstone

The front grille is now trimmed in light gray, for a two-tone look. Spy shots allegedly revealing the front end and interior of the refreshed Jeep Renegade have leaked online. The changes aren’t nearly as radical as on the recently unveiled update for the Cherokee , but the tweaks to the little crossover are still attractive. Jeep’s designers add more angular elements to the front of the Renegade, according to the photos posted on Instagram by Renegade Jeeps . The closely cropped picture shows revised headlights with new rectangular sections in the center, and there’s a light-colored portion around each rim.

Plus a 200-pound diet and a new 2.0-liter turbo engine. The unconventional look of the Jeep Cherokee caused quite a stir when it was revealed at the 2013 New York Auto Show. As in, a lot of critics hated the way it looked. “It was very progressive, modern,” admits Mike Manley, Head of the Jeep brand. “But we needed to do that to break through the segment.” With a tiered lighting arrangement and a pointy grille that were not at all like any contemporary Jeep, the Cherokee certainly stood out. But that was the intention: make an impact as Jeep returned with a vengeance to the segment dominated by names like CR-V and RAV4. The strategy worked, with the Cherokee selling well and nobody mentioning the “weird” styling ever again. “It did what it was supposed to do, it called attention to the vehicle,” says Mark Allen, Head of Jeep design. But when it was time to develop the refreshed 2019 Cherokee , he was asked to significantly tamp down on the crossover’s boldness – … [Read more...] about 2019 Jeep Cherokee Gets A More Traditional Face, Roomier Interior
Rather than splitting the headlights, the updated face integrates them into single units. Spy photos already made it fairly clear that the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee featured a new nose with unified headlights, but Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has now confirmed these suspicions by releasing the first official images of the updated SUV. The full debut with all the details will come at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 16.

The Trailhawk also seems to have a slightly … [Read more...] about 2019 Jeep Cherokee’s New Face Revealed Ahead Of Detroit Debut
The final facelift should be here by the end of 2018. Days after we published details about the upcoming Jeep Renegade facelift , projections for how the new small SUV might look are already beginning to emerge. In this case, the concept above was published by the website Indian Autos Blog and conceptualized by SRK Design. The image points to more square lines and more robust styling on the front fascia, with strong inspiration from the more recent models, including the new Compass and Yuntu concept (presented a few months ago in China). Launched globally in mid 2014, and on sale in the U.S. since March 2015, the Renegade will undergo these changes in an attempt to remain competitive until the next incarnation arrives (something that will only happen after the end of this decade). The competition in the segment has recently become more fierce, and practically all the big players have representatives in the category. In just the last few months, two rivals were … [Read more...] about Will The Next Jeep Renegade Look Like This?
