Mercedes Benz has unveiled its latest and currently smallest entry into the AMG fold, the 2014 A45 AMG which looks to take a slice of the premium hot hatchback market from BMW as well as Audi’s reworked S3 model while revamping the overall image of the AMG division at the same time.
Following countless years of speculation as well as numerous promises of it reaching production, Alfa Romeo has officially unveiled its latest sports car offering the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sport coupe which aims to bring performance and fuel efficiency in a bold Alfa styled wrapper while also spearheading the company’s triumphant (and long promised) return to the U.S. Market.
GM announced back in 2011 that there would be an oil-burning Chevy Cruze would eventually make its way to the U.S. market to compete against the likes of the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The future is now the present, and Chevy has pulled the wraps off of the 2014 Cruze TD, which of course stands for turbo diesel.
In nearly every segment that Toyota has entered in the U.S., its vehicles have sold very well. I have to qualify with “nearly,” though, because the Tundra full-size pickup does not sell in nearly the volumes Toyota hoped that it would. When the current-generation Tundra debuted for the 2007 model year, Toyota had two plants to produce it, with capacity of up to 400,000 units annually. In 2012, the Tundra sold just over 100,000. Back to the drawing board!
Despite the lukewarm reception that the bigger 5 Series GT has received from critics and BMW fans since its debut, BMW is pushing to expand its GT model lineup even further and has taken the veil off of its latest GT model the 2014 3 Series GT which aims to bring versatility to buyers that might find the bigger 5 Series GT unsuitable for their needs.
