It’s always exciting to see the new models each year and as we near the time when we’ll already begin to be seeing next year’s trucks, I thought it would be great to take a look at some of the best trucks of 2015. I grabbed some of these images from forbes.com.
While it’s been the best-selling vehicle in the industry, it finally received a long-awaited redesign this year. The changes brought about more extensive use of aluminum allowing the truck to actually be lighter, greatly improving gas mileage, but managed not to sacrifice any of it’s “cojones” in the process.
I’ve always loved the hamster commercials and the Renegade looks like a Jeep Wrangler and a Kia Soul got together and did what hamsters do best. The outcome? A compact crossover that boasts a 2.4 liter, turbocharged 4 cylinder engine with up to 184 horses to back it up. It also comes with a “trail rated” 4×4 system. How fun can you make a hamster look alike.
Alright, now this is just a mighty release. While the basis is picked from the Ford Escape, this is the luxury version. Eco-boost, 2.3 liter turbo-four – so it’s acting like a 6 cylinder with all the bells and whistles you could want from a luxury crossover.
Now who doesn’t love a Porsche? Well, to be honest there’s been a couple of mishaps in their run (Panamera). The sporty Macan is destined to become one of Porsche’s most popular models. It rivals the Audi q5, but with more…. Porsche-like aggression and performance. To top it off, it is just as quick as the 911 Carrera sports coup but much more affordable.
With a little bit of everything, I think that’s a great cross-section. If you didn’t see yours there, don’t be discouraged, or worse yet angry, just shoot me a line and let me know and we can always make another list.
It's gonna happen to the majority of us. More than likely we each will get into a fender bender (or worse) in our lifetime and have to figure out where to go from there. While I've dabbled with some custom work myself, I usually leave any body work to the pros - providing they're pros. Through my years, I've seen 4 main areas where auto body shops drop the ball. Here's my experience to help you know what to keep an eye for when you take your auto for repair.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3cIH6XbS0E Guys, I have to say that I am so stoked! There's nothing like jamming out to your music in a car that's been set up for audio correctly, with music that matches the setting and it's always better when one of your favorite artists releases a new album. What made it cooler was that one of my favorites, Tim Whalen, just recording right here in Washington DC! If I had known he was around the corner, I would have tried to get in to see him! As one of DC's favored jazz pianists, composers, and even arrangers, most of us that enjoy Jazz in the DC area know of Tim. He's played all around town and teamed up with other outstanding musicians to have several sold out venues, ranking from Smithsonian, to local bars around town. He's outstanding to listen to live, but wait until you put the music in the car! It can completely envelop you and leave you feeling like he's right there playing with you. Someday, I'm gonna have to post how to get the best audio out of your auto, but until that time, you just need to make sure to pick the right music for the job and Tim's stuff is great. I just had to post and tell everything that Tim released a new album, that he recording right here in the DC recording studio from Blue House Productions. I've heard they record all styles of music and have some outstanding equipment and recording rooms, although you'll not want to be hearing my singing voice. Stick to Tim's new album Oblivion: the Music of Bud Powell and trust me, you'll thank me later. You can grab it right off his site at http://www.timothywhalen.com/oblivion-store. Way to go Tim and Blue House - it's a win for DC
