Getting ready for Detroit auto show

Ford Edge ST 2018 revealed

Kumar Galhotra, head of the Lincoln brand, said the award should give the Navigator a boost as it tries to gain traction in the competitive full-size truck-based luxury SUV market. "It is one of the most famous cars in the world, so to have it up here with our new Mustang, that's why people are here".

The vehicle is among the first of two new models planned this year and will come with a six-year, 72,000-mile warranty - double what it has been.

Jonathan Smoke, the chief economist for Cox Automotive, says customers looking for an affordable vehicle a year ago were more likely to shop for used SUVs over new small cars.

"Pickup trucks are one of the best-selling vehicles here in North America, the utility of them, the public loves them", said Brad Warner, a spokesperson for the auto show.

Silverado variants range from the sporty RST to the off-road LT Trailboss and premium High Country.

Powertrain combination amount to six - including the all-new Duramax 3.0L inline-six diesel, while there are a total of eight models to choose from. "Ford answers the call from truck customers looking for an affordable, rugged, and maneuverable midsize pickup that's Built Ford Tough; torture-tested alongside Ford F-150 trucks", the company described the new truck as a call-back to the proven F-150 build.

BMW is adding another model to its lineup of SUV-like vehicles (which the company insists on calling sports activity vehicles).

Under the hood is the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that powers the Ford Mustang sports auto.

Safety features will include standard Automatic Emergency Braking, while Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, a Reverse Sensing System and class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage are standard on XLT and Lariat trim levels.

Notably, 80% of the truck - including the fenders, roof and bed - is now made of high-strength steel, while the doors, hood and tailgate, as well as the new upper control arms of the front suspension, are made of lightweight aluminum. It's expected to go on sale in the USA this spring with a list price of $39,395. The show has also seen plenty of head-spinning stunts, such as in 2008, when Dodge unleashed a parade of longhorn cattle and cowboys through downtown Detroit to launch a new Dodge Ram truck. Competing against big sellers like the Honda CR-V, the 2019 Cherokee will likely have a starting price around $24,500. For those with the bankroll, the Lamborghini Urus is no fantasy. But in the US, it thought buyers who needed to haul things occasionally would gravitate toward SUVs. According to the company, the Urus is the world's fastest SUV, with a zero to 60 miles per hour clocked at 3.6 seconds. You're going to hail it much like you hail an Uber or a Lyft.
