2014 BMW 328d rated at 32/45 mpg

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

2014 BMW 328d

BMW still hasn’t released official fuel economy numbers for its diesel-powered 2014 328d, but now, those mileage ratings have been posted on the EPA’s FuelEconomy.gov website. As expected, the 328d is quite an efficient little machine, with the rear-wheel-drive sedan good for 32 miles per gallon in the city and 45 mpg highway. That even bests the 30/42 mpg of the smaller Volkswagen Jetta TDI.

The last time BMW offered a diesel 3 Series in our market, it was the six-cylinder 335d, which – while mighty quick and excellent to drive – was only offered as a rear-wheel-drive sedan and was rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. For 2014, BMW will offer the 328d with optional xDrive all-wheel drive, though that reduces the fuel economy numbers to 31/43 mpg. Beyond that, the BMW will even sell you a 328d xDrive wagon, which nets the same 31/43 mpg rating, according to FuelEconomy.gov.

Look for the 2014 BMW 328d to hit dealerships this fall, and when it launches, it will be the only diesel offering in its class (until the next Mercedes-Benz C-Class arrives, anyway). Lexus and Infiniti will offer hybrid versions of the IS and Q50, respectively, but we’ve always had a taste for torque, and the 328d’s 2.0-liter engine with 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of twist shouldn’t disappoint.

2014 Honda Odyssey first minivan to earn Top Safety Pick+ award [w/video]

2014 Honda Odyssey IIHS crash test

You know an automaker is confident about the safety of its vehicles when it asks one of the top crash test agencies to destroy one of its newest models. That’s exactly what happened with the 2014 Honda Odyssey. According the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Honda requested that the agency run the updated Odyssey through its full barrage of tests, and for good reason.

Aside from slight styling upgrades and a new optional HondaVac built-in vacuum cleaner, the 2014 Odyssey was also given a more rigid passenger compartment using high-strength steel to help better protect occupants. It obviously worked. Following the crash tests, the 2014 Odyssey became the first minivan to earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating, but, more importantly, it did so with “Good” ratings in all five crash categories (four “Goods” and one “Acceptable” are enough for the TSP+). Impressive.

Scroll down for the crash-test video from the IIHS along with a press release.

2013 Airstream Interstate 3500 EXT

LA To The Grand Canyon In The Mercedes-Benz Of RVs

2013 Airstream Interstate 3500 EXT

Piloting an 8,500-pound motorized house down the highway is far from my idea of fun, yet inexplicably, I’m enjoying myself. My grin has nothing to do with my camper’s handling, as this heavily accoutered Mercedes-Benz Sprinter drives like a 25-foot long breadbox. My smile has nothing to do with on-road stability, as the ten-foot-tall, slab-sided vehicle reacts to wind gusts like the vertical stabilizer on a Boeing jet. My delight has nothing to do with its throttle or braking response, either, as both are as numb as your forehead after the eighth beer.

This monstrosity makes me happy for one reason – my passengers are undeniably having a good time.

Two days earlier, I had shoveled my wife and two kids into this Airstream Interstate 3500′s sliding door, cranked over its six-cylinder diesel engine and pointed its black and chrome nose out of greater Los Angeles and towards the Grand Canyon. Now, with the 17-million-year-old fissure less than an hour over the horizon, and with everyone chatting giddily about the upcoming spectacle, I’ve pleasantly come to realize that the motorhome method of travel isn’t just for those hobbled bodies with thinning gray hair.

Next Kia Sedona minivan spied

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , ,

After skipping the 2013 model year and returning for 2014, the Kia Sedona is getting a full redesign for 2015, which we see for the first time in these new spy shots. The new Sedona isn’t going to look as much like the 2011 KV7 Concept as we had hoped, but we definitely see some key styling cues from the Kia concept minivan.

Even though it’s covered in heavy camouflage, we can see that some of the KV7′s cues on the 2015 Sedona include the vertical front marker lights, the horizontal taillights and the pinched beltline starting at the C-pillar. Kia’s trademark Tiger Nose grille is present and accounted for, as is the telltale dip in the windshield.

All in all, the next-gen Sedona already looks to be a significant improvement over the current, generally boring model, which dates back to 2006 and has a striking resemblance to the Ford Freestar. There is no word yet as to what will power the 2015 Sedona, but our spy shooter said that this prototype was most likely powered by a 2.2-liter diesel.

Which is easier?

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Hey all!
The last time I was on the forum was for a timing belt change on a 3.0l. Seems like I pulled the inlet hose out of the back of the water pump. Would it be easier to go in the same way as replacing the timing belt OR pull off the top end?

Thanks!

2014 VW Jetta brooms loathed 5-cylinder, beam axle rear suspension

2011 Volkswagen Jetta - front three-quarter view

Volkswagen has just announced a bunch of changes for the 2014 model year, the biggest of which is that it’s finally ditching the boat anchor of an engine better known as the 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder. This engine is currently used in entry-level versions of the Jetta (shown above in 2011 guise), Jetta SportWagen, Passat, Beetle and Golf, and with the exception of the Golf, which is in its final model year before a full redesign, the other models will all see a new 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injected inline-four under the hood for 2014.

This new engine produces the same power as the 2.5 (170 hp) and seven more pound-feet of torque (184 lb-ft), but its biggest advantage is its fuel economy. According to the EPA’s fueleconomy.gov website, the 2014 Jetta’s official numbers have climbed to 26 mpg city and 36 mpg highway (with the five-speed manual), up from the 2013 model’s 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway numbers. Likewise, the Passat’s 2014 fuel economy numbers with this new base engine have improved from 22 city/32 highway with the manual to 24 city/35 highway; 2014 Jetta SportWagen and 2014 Beetle figures with this new engine have not been posted yet.

Other big changes coming to the 2014 Jetta include electric power steering for all models as well as the torsion beam real axle being replaced with the more sophisticated multilink suspension currently only found in the GLI and Hybrid variants. Speaking of the GLI, a new 30th Anniversary edition will be joining the lineup later in the year.

In terms of other VW 2014 model year news, the Golf and GTI will only be offered in limited numbers and in four-door configurations only as VW prepares to launch the all-new Mk VII Golf, the Beetle Turbo has been renamed the Beetle R-Line and the promised new GSR model has arrived, and VW will introduce its new VW Car-Net connected services. Scroll down for the full press release breaking down all of the changes in store for VW’s 2014 model year.

Chrysler extending production of current Dodge Avenger, Jeep Wrangler, Grand Caravan

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

2013 Dodge Avenger - front three-quarter view

Are you hesitant to pull the trigger on a brand new Dodge Avenger in hopes that a new one will be coming? Well, don’t hold your breath. According to The Detroit News, Chrysler will be extending production of the current Avenger sedan through the end of 2015.

Originally, we heard that the company would kill the Avenger to better focus its midsize sedan efforts on the Chrysler 200 replacement. But then new reports stated there would indeed be an Avenger successor, and that we could see it as early as next January. This Detroit News report cites supplier sources confirming the extension of Avenger production, though Chrysler has not released an official statement on the matter.

These same suppliers say that the current Jeep Wrangler will live on through mid-2018 – that’s right, another five years. The Detroit News reports that a replacement for the iconic, go-anywhere Jeep was due in mid-2016.

Lastly, the report mentions that the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan will remain in production through late 2017, though its Chrysler Town & Country counterpart will be replaced by an all-new vehicle for the 2016 model year. This only further backs reports that the Grand Caravan will be killed from the Chrysler Group portfolio, with the T&C remaining the only minivan in production at the company’s Windsor facility.
