Cadillac enjoyed two years of increasing sales pre-pandemic, but MotorTrend hasn't exactly been singing the praises of its heart-of-market XT4, XT5, and XT6 crossover vehicles. The brand hopes to change our tune with the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq (like the song), by giving it dramatic proportions and a brand new face, plus Tesla-esque electric performance, range, and technology.

Apple and Hyundai Could Sign a Deal by March to Begin Producing Apple Cars in the U.S. by 2024,

A deal between Apple and Hyundai to produce the Apple Car could be closer than originally thought, as new details emerge indicating that the two are working toward finalizing the partnership as soon as March, with plans to actually begin producing the first Apple Car by 2024.

We first heard reports last week that Apple and Hyundai were in talks about a partnership to produce Apple’s first electric vehicle, but at the time the talks were described as “at an early stage,” and in fact Hyundai also originally added that it believed Apple was having these discussions with “a variety of global automakers” as well, making the whole thing seem very preliminary.

Zoox Autonomous Robotaxi First Look: Gad-ZOOX, Amazon's Going Mobile!
Amazon's self-driving taxi seats four and can hit 75 mpg going forwards or backwards.

This Bay-Area autonomous vehicle startup was founded in 2014, built its first prototype in 2015, first demonstrated SAE Level-3 autonomy in 2017, began durability testing of production prototypes in 2019, then established a production line in Fremont, California and was acquired by Amazon in May 2020. And that name? It's short for zooxanthellae—a mobile, algae-like organism powered by photosynthesis that thrives in mutually beneficial relationships with coral. Aww.

How Big Is The Zoox Autonomous Vehicle?
This soft-cornered box resembles a dramatically downsized version of other robotaxis like the Continental/Easy Mile CUbE or an upsized version of the tiny Nuro R1 autonomous delivery vehicle. Its wheels are pushed way out to the corners, so if you were to remove the cycle fenders from the tires, the Zoox's approach and departure angle would be 90 degrees; so far, the company has no plan to exploit that feature.

Lane Departure Warning vs. Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Centering: What’s the Difference?

New cars offer advanced safety tech that can keep you from drifting around on the road, but it can be hard to tell one system apart from another. If you've ever wondered what lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and lane centering actually do, keep reading. Are these features worth getting? We'll run through them all so you know exactly what distinguishes lane departure warning from lane keeping assist and lane centering.

What Do These Systems Do?
Lane departure warning is the most basic form of this safety tech. The moment you get close to the dividers or cross into the other lane, the car warns you via beeps or a vibrating steering wheel, as is the case with vehicles made by Nissan and General Motors. A camera mounted in the front of the car or on the windshield tracks your car's trajectory and detects lane lines so it can communicate when you start wandering into another lane. You'll need to steer the vehicle back on center because lane departure warning by itself is a passive system.

Lane keeping assist takes things one step farther by preventing you from crossing into another lane. How does the system do that? By using the steering or gentle braking at the wheel(s) that's about cross over. However, the latter method tends to be more intrusive compared to systems that use the electric power steering system to nudge you back into your lane.

Complementing lane keeping assist and lane departure warning is lane centering, the latest addition to the growing list of driver assistance features. As the name suggests, lane centering keeps you centered in your lane and almost always comes with steering assist to help the vehicle take gentle turns at highway speeds. Nissan's ProPilot Assist system has one of the best lane centering systems, working together with adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist to give the car semi-autonomous capability. Systems from Hyundai, Kia, and Honda work in a similar manne, and also require adaptive cruise control to be active in order to activate.

Are These Features Worth It?
A well-executed lane departure warning system should help you in a subtle manner without stopping conversation because its alert is too loud or the assist of an active system is too jerky. If an automaker's system meets the above criteria, the tech could provide a little peace of mind for your commute. Unless you're after a semi-autonomous driving experience, however, it falls short of a must-have feature.
What To Look For In Good Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, And Lane Centering Systems

Make sure the alerts made by the systems aren't obtrusive. And if you find the alerts distracting, see if they can be reduced in volume.
If there's a visual warning, make sure it's within your line of sight.
Now that you know the difference among the three systems and have the right expectations, make sure the systems don't intervene with abrupt inputs.
See if you can adjust how soon the three systems warn or intervene. That setting will either be in the gauge cluster display or the infotainment system's settings.
Check to see if lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and lane centering require turning on adaptive cruise control to work.

Sony—Yes, Sony—Unveiled an Electric Car at CES 2020

Cars are transitioning toward electric powertrains, autonomous driving technology and connected online infotainment experiences. These transitions, in turn, have shifted much of the competitive locus of auto-dom from the traditional mechanical developments to the realm of electronics. As a result, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is now as important to automakers as any auto show.

And now, electronics companies, apparently, are making cars. Sony—yes, that Sony—unveiled its Vision-S electric concept car during a presentation at CES 2020.

The Vision-S — a sedan that looks sort of like a Polestar mated with a Porsche — boasts a dual-motor electric powertrain built by Magna Steyr. Sony claims a top speed of 149 mph and 0-60 mph acceleration in less than five seconds. (Sony did not mention the car’s battery capacity or the car’s estimated range.)

The Vision S has 33 different sensors on the car monitoring the external and internal environments. These sensors can, reportedly, allow the car offer Level 2+ autonomous driving systems, as well as monitoring the driver’s attention and providing customized infotainment. Sony also included a sophisticated speaker alignment that provides a surround sound setup for each individual driver, and a Byton-like infotainment screen.

Is Sony about to get into the car production game? Probably not. While electric cars may be the industry’s future, present profits come from selling gasoline-powered pickup trucks and SUVs — and, in Tesla’s case, offsetting the emissions of the companies that do so. The Vision-S is more likely a showcase for what Sony can offer automakers on the tech side.

REVEALED! Mid-Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Makes 495 Horsepower
Your first look at all of the C8 Corvette’s new features.

If you say anything enough, it's bound to come true. In our case, cry "mid-engine Corvette" a sufficient number of times, and eventually Chevrolet will just have to build one. After threatening to build a Corvette with a mid-mounted engine for 50 years, the dream is finally realized: Tonight the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was revealed to crowds of Corvette adorers and media inside a former airship hangar in Tustin, California.

The heart of any Corvette is its engine, no matter where its placed. That remains true for the eighth-generation Corvette Stingray, too. Mounted under just over 0.1 inch of glass is the new Corvette's crown jewel, the LT2 6.2-liter V-8. Good for up to 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque (when equipped with the optional performance exhaust system), the LT2 makes 35 more horsepower and 5 lb-ft more torque than the LT1 found in the C7 Corvette Stingray. The new 'Vette's naturally aspirated mill (which Chevy says is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine found in a mid-engine car) is built from an aluminum block, and it's designed to drop weight and the Stingray's center of gravity. It also gets a dry-sump oil system with three scavenge pumps, a first for a base-model Corvette, to deal with lateral acceleration levels that Chevrolet says can exceed 1 g in all directions.
The "jewelry" Chevy fit to the LT2 is less functional but arguably just as important. Given that the engine is exposed for all to see, the Corvette's engine is designed to be seen, with, as Chevy says in its press release, "every part … built with appearance in mind.

The Apple Car Is Coming – Here Are Eight Things You Need to Know. It’ll Likely Be an Actual Car
Originally, the goal of Apple’s Project Titan was rumored to be the development of an actual Apple Car, the vehicular version of an iPhone, so to speak. But after a series of roadblocks, Project Titan shifted its focus to what Apple CEO Tim Cook called “autonomous systems.”

Still, more recently, Apple has seemingly had a renewed interest in actual car tech. Back in August, it patented technology related to sunroofs and intelligent seats. There have been other indications that an actual Apple vehicle could debut eventually, too, including a research note by oft-accurate Ming-Chi Kuo.

It’ll Drive Itself
Whether or not Apple launches an Apple Car or simply underlying systems, we do know that Project Titan is working on autonomous vehicle technology. In other words, whatever form it may take, the Apple car project is more specifically an Apple self-driving car project.

Top-Tier Talent Is Behind It
Apple is taking its car project seriously if its various hires are any indication. The Cupertino tech giant has brought on some top-tier talent from across the automobile field to make its self-driving vehicle a reality. While Apple has undoubtedly hired even more engineers, the following are just a few notable examples.

Back in June 2018, Apple hired an ex-Waymo and NASA engineer who was “instrumental” at Google’s Project Waymo. In August, Apple rehired a former alumnus who had gone to work for Tesla. A few months later, it hired another senior Tesla designer. And way back in 2016, Apple poached the technical director for Porsche’s racing division.

It Could Incorporate Virtual Reality
Virtual reality and driving seem like two technology categories at odds with each other. But, of course, reliable self-driving car technology could change that. If your car can safely drive itself to your destination without any input, you’re free to do whatever you want.

It May Be Much Larger Than Expected
Last summer, an ex-Apple engineer was indicted for stealing trade secrets related to the company’s self-driving car project. While that wasn’t great for Apple and its secrecy culture, court documents related to the case did reveal quite a few interesting details about Project Titan.

For example, those documents indicate that Apple had about 5,000 employees working on the car project, up from just about 1,000 two years earlier. That details its scope, as well as how much it has grown. Documents also revealed that Apple has prototype car technology, its Project Titan staff are segmented into teams, and that the project has produced “copious” amounts of data.

Apple Maps Revamp Is Likely Related
Among a suite of sensors and machine-learning technology, self-driving car tech also relies heavily on mapping data. That’s why Apple’s complete overhaul of its Apple Maps platform is likely not unrelated to the firm’s autonomous vehicle project.

Electric vehicle startup NIO has launched its first production car, the ES8 – a fully electric SUV with 220 miles of range, fast charging that will top off the battery entirely in one hour of charging, battery pack swapping capabilities for thee-minute refuelling and more. The car starts at about $68,000 before incentives and subsidies, and will be a strong competitor with the Model X in China, where Tesla is disqualified from subsidies and also faces additional import charges and taxes since its car isn’t made locally.

The NIO looks like an attractive modern small SUV, addressing a category that is increasingly in demand both in China and abroad. It has seven seats, all-wheel drive, and an advanced infotainment system and dash display consisting of two LED screens including a massive touch interface in the center console. The car has self-parking capabilities, too, and the battery swap feature means that EV buyers aren’t sacrificing any convenience in terms of fuelling up vs. traditional internal combustion vehicles. Plus, it responds to voice commands for triggering certain features, too.

Chinese automaker GAC came to Detroit to show us it's almost ready to sell Trumpchi cars in the US
The automaker debuted three new cars in Detroit.

Reese Counts
Chinese-state-owned automaker GAC claims to be on the precipice of entering the US market. GAC revealed three new vehicles under its Trumpchi brand this week at the Detroit Auto Show, all of which hit upon current US trends. (Those trends just so happen to be big in China as well.) The company also announced its intentions to build a research and development facility somewhere in North America, with full details promised in the next few months.

First off, yes, the brand is actually called Trumpchi, and it predates Donald Trump's rise to political prominence by many years. The three models – the GS7 five-seat crossover, the EnSpirit plug-in hybrid concept, and the GE3 EV – appear to be in different stages of development. Styling for all three is a mixture of original and cribbed design bits. They're not ugly, but this isn't exactly a pretty bunch either. The GS7, for example, looks a bit like a scrunched version of the current Nissan Armada. The EnSpirit concept is vaguely reminiscent of the Tesla Model S and Model X, but it gets bonus points for eschewing the latter's falcon wing doors and instead has a cloth rollback roof, making it a combination of crossover, convertible, and sedan. Plus, our favorite part, it has a bonsai tree planted in the second row.

The GE3 crossover could have the best chance of coming here. The biggest hurdle for Chinese automakers entering the US market has always been meeting safety, emissions, and fuel economy standards that are growing ever stricter. Since the GE3 is an EV, it could avoid some of those issues. GAC is claiming nearly 200 miles of range for the GE3. If the small electric crossover could come in at a reasonable price, GAC may actually have a shot at bringing a car here.

2018 GAC Trumpchi GE3 lead

GAC is no stranger to mass appeal and production. While the automaker is nearly unknown here in the US, it's one of the most popular brands in China. Last year, GAC sold about 380,000 vehicles. The company also has partnerships with Toyota, Honda, and FCA to build vehicles in China. Any one of those could potentially provide assistance with a US introduction. GAC vice president of design Zhang Fan said cars could be brought over as soon as 2018. While competition is good, it would be a big stretch to get something here that soon with no dealer network. Look for more news when the company establishes its new R&D facility.

A new Korean car brand coming to America?
Ssangyong Motor, South Korea’s smallest automotive manufacturer, is putting plans in place to enter the U.S. market in the next two years—although likely under a different brand name.

The automaker also has filed trademark requests for the words “Luvent” and “Tivoli” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Ssangyong recently unveiled its Tivoli overseas, a subcompact sport-utility vehicle sized similarly to the Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V. A well-placed source said Luvent would be the sedan or hatchback variant from the same small-car platform as the Tivoli.

© Provided by Consumer Reports
The Tivoli will launch in the South Korean market in January at the equivalent price of $15,000 with a six-speed manual transmission; a six-speed automatic transmission will add about $1,500 to the cost. The base two-wheel drive Tivoli will come with a 125-hp, 1.6-liter gasoline engine. All-wheel drive and a 1.6-liter diesel variant will be available as part of Ssangyong’s build plan.

Standard safety features in the South Korean market will include seven air bags, electronic stability control, brake assist, hill start assist, and seat-belt pretensioners. If extreme brake force is applied, the car will automatically illuminate the emergency flashers in the rear taillamp cluster. About 40 percent of the car’s body will be made of advanced high-strength steel.

Although Ssangyong’s target markets have been in Central America, Eastern Europe, Africa, China, and India, the Tivoli was designed with U.S. crash and emissions certification in mind, Ssangyong sources told Consumer Reports.

Ssangyong has had past technology sharing deals with Mercedes-Benz, but its recent past has been marred with trouble competing against Korean giant Hyundai-Kia Automotive.

Ssangyong’s owners have included Korea’s Daewoo Group, Chinese auto conglomerate SAIC Motor Corp., and now Indian truckmaker Mahindra & Mahindra. Launching the Tivoli could be part of a larger expansion for Mahindra, which tried and failed to launch a small pickup truck in the U.S. market several years ago.

Coming to America is not a sure thing for Ssangyong. Over the past 20 years, the automaker has filed for U.S. trademarks for its Rexton, Korando, Chairman, Actyon, and Musso vehicles, none of which ever reached our shores.
