It will live on in Asian markets as the Grandeur. Say goodbye to the Hyundai Azera, at least in the United States. The Korean automaker’s official word on changes for the 2018 model year include a revamped Accent and Elantra GT, not to mention the all-new Kona compact crossover. Other familiar models either carry over or receive modest facelifts, except for the full-size Azera sedan which officially exits the U.S. market. The car isn’t dead, however – it will continue on in its home market where it’s called Grandeur.

The current generation debuted in 2011, but after peaking in 2013 with just over 11,000 sold units the Azera entered a freefall.

Of course, there's a catch. By now, the news of a new mid-engine Corvette should have reached you, and the mere mention of the name should make you picture a mid-engined supercar, probably red, and has the looks of an exotic Italian without the glaring exotic price tag. Or not. Not all are fans of the new Chevrolet halo car; there are those who probably prefer to hear the sound of the engine coming from the hood. Chevrolet knows that but they're positive that the evolutionary design would woo the hearts of car buyers outside of the baby boomer generation. Heck, they even dropped the chrome wheel design – a favorite among the conventional-'Vette fans.

The Chicago Assembly is the brand's longest continually operating assembly plant. Ford is in Chicago to introduce the 2019 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson together with the Tuscany Motor Company - while not an official product of the Blue Oval, the special edition truck is really a sight to behold. That’s about all the company has to show its fans in the Windy City but there’s also one major announcement that was made during the show – Ford is investing one billion dollars in its Chicago Assembly and Stamping Plants to expand production capacity for several new SUVs. The automaker says it will hire 500 new employees bringing the total workforce at the two plants to approximately 5,800. In Chicago, Ford will build the new Explorer, including the Explorer ST and Explorer Hybrid, and the all-new Police Interceptor Utility, as well as the new generation Lincoln Aviator.

But eventually decided to rely on a “mixed materials” strategy. The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer rides on a new platform that will be used by the manufacturer for a number of upcoming models, including the 2020 Lincoln Aviator. Ford’s large three-row SUV is approximately 200 pounds (91 kilograms) lighter than its predecessor and up to 36 percent torsionally stiffer but that doesn’t mean it’s uses all-aluminum architecture. In fact, Ford toyed with the idea for an all-aluminum body but eventually decided it will use a “mixed materials” strategy instead. “Weight was a factor in every decision we made,” the Explorer’s chief engineer, Bill Gubing, recently told Detroit Free Press. “We looked at every part.” Explore The Latest News: 2020 Ford Explorer Already Receives Its First Incentive Quality Issues Delay New Ford Explorer, Lincoln Aviator Deliveries The automaker’s decision comes … [Read more...] about Ford Considered All-Aluminum Body For 2020 Explorer
Both sets of doors open a full 90 degrees to create quite an entrance when getting in or out of this big sedan. UPDATE: We were curious about Lincoln making the Continental Coach Door available in limited numbers in 2020 and reached out to the automaker for more details. "We have not announced the specific quantity for the 20MY run, but we will keep them limited so that the edition remains special and unique," Anika Salceda-Wycoco, Lincoln Communications Manager, told us." So if you can't get the Coach Door model this year, then there's still a chance to put one in your garage in the future. The rumors are true because coach doors, also known as suicide doors, are coming back to the Lincoln Continental after becoming a famous part of the model's design in the 1960s. Unfortunately, the company will build just 80 of them for the 2019 model year, meaning these special sedans will be a very rare sight on the road. A few more of them will arrive for the 2020 model … [Read more...] about Lincoln Continental Suicide Doors Return With Special Edition [UPDATE]
