Nissan Titan Warrior Concept
I am hopeful for this. It's a striking design modification of Nissan's announced Titan XD truck. Although, I'm not a 4-wheel-drive guy, this look is awesome. And, with all the love I have for the service department guys at Future Nissan, in Roseville, CA, I'd love to buy another Nissan vehicle.
Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew
After going to Ford and looking over the F-150 re-design, I haven't been a huge fan of it. I was a little disappointed with some of the plastics and design issues. This truck, like the Nissan concept above, is build and designed for some big-time 4-wheel-driving. I love the exterior looks.
The Hyundai Santa Cruze and the Jeep Wrangler Truck
These two "trucks" are interesting. I remember twenty years ago, I made all sorts of jokes about Hyundai. Now, along with Kia, Hyundai is making really nice looking cars. I'm not sure the life of their vehicles and the quality level, but initially the Sorento I drove and the Kias and Hyundais I see look like great vehicles. And Jeep? Well, they've been around for quite a while, are known for their 4x4 capabilities, and this truck idea has been kicked around for a while. I don't think I'd move to either of these two, but they are fun designs.
2017 GMC Acadia
Aside from the price difference, in 2011 we looked closely at the Acadia and GMs other variants of this platform. This is a strong looking crossover, with a tall stance that helps it look more like a truck than a car. It's been a favorite of mine in the CUV class. This refresh looks good.
Coming Sedans, 2017 Lincoln Continental and Volvo S60
Other Concepts, Acura Precision and Buick Avista
2016 BMW M2
There were lots of other vehicles I read about on Autoblog and The Verge, but now I'm falling asleep. And since I make no money writing this blog, I'm going to take a nap, without proof reading or reviewing for mistakes.
