Interior high quality is acceptable for a automobile in this class, but with Buick being a extra aspirational premium model, its prime Essence Sport Touring trim needs to be a bit richer than it is. The differences are usually a bit more delicate and take care of what sorts of kit the Encore GX may be had with that the Trailblazer cannot: an auto-dimming rear digital camera mirror with washer, twin-zone climate management, actual leather-based seats as a substitute of leatherette, a typical 8-inch multimedia display screen and 4.2-inch … Read More

By ·

Truck tonnage saw a decline, for the month of April, according to data issued this week by the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

The ATA’s advanced Seasonally Adjusted (SA) For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index, for April, came in at 115.8 (2015=100), falling 2% on the heels of a 1.8% March gain (this reading was downwardly revised from an original 2.4% increase).

On an annual basis, SA tonnage saw a 1.8% increase, marking the eighth straight month of annual gains. This was down from March’s 3.3% annual gain. On a year-to-date basis, SA tonnage is up 2.3% compared to the first four months of 2021.

The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment and the metric ATA says fleets should benchmark their levels with, was 114.1 in April, down 7.4% compared to March’s 123.2.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L vs 2022 Kia Telluride vs 2022 Toyota Highlander: 3-Row SUVs Compared

These are the kind of vehicles that fit the lifestyles we envision for ourselves. We want something that can haul lots of stuff even if we rarely stuff it full, something that can accommodate many friends even if we spend more time commuting alone, something that can carry lots of kids’ gear even if we only have one kid, something that can tow a boat even if we only do so at the beginning and end of the season, and something that can go off-road even if we camp as often as we get a physical. It’s not about what we do most often but what we can do if we want or need to.

How These SUVs Perform

OK, so maybe “do it all” isn’t quite accurate—for example, virtually no one expects a big, all-wheel-drive family SUV to excel at drag racing. Our competitors here didn’t, as all have

Hyundai Sonata, Kia K5, and Kia Stinger Ending Production Soon?

All of this sedan doom and gloom somewhat makes sense, as Hyundai Motor Group—parent company of Hyundai, Genesis and Kia—is pivoting towards an all electric future. In Asan, Korea, the plant that builds the Hyundai Sonata, along with the Grandeur sedan that was sold in the U.S. as the Azera, was shut down and retooled in January to build electrics like the upcoming Ioniq 6 EV. Stateside, the Sonata plant in Montgomery, Alabama will also undergo upgrades for EV production, making the story from Chosun Ilbo—a leading newspaper and media company in Korea—plausible. However, speaking to Automotive News, a spokesperson for Hyundai stated that the Sonata “remains and will continue to remain an important part of Hyundai’s product lineup.”

In addition to the Sonata, it appears that Kia might also axe the Stinger and the K5. “I will be shocked if the K5 doesn’t follow
