There's a lot of future car talk going around the web this week, with the new Alfa Romeo 4C among our favorite bits of intel: it will start at just $54,000 in the U.S., according to a new report. If you can find one to buy, that is.

Mazda's next-generation MX-5 Miata has also been spied. Heavily anticipated and essential to Mazda's success, the MX-5's coming fourth generation should return to its roots with added lightness--and an Alfa Romeo variant.

Cadillac's Escalade is also getting an all-new version to match the recently revealed Yukon and Suburban, but with its own bag of tricks. Will the updated luxury ute be the new new ultimate tow/family/trip SUV? Or will it get its signals crossed with competing intentions of green, luxury, utility, and price? We'll find out soon enough.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
