2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE, 2016 Chicago Auto Show
Photos of the 2017 Volvo V90 leaked, again; Nissan unveiled the new 2017 Armada; and Chevrolet took the wraps off the new 2017 Camaro 1LE. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.
The new cast of Top Gear was finally announced in full and it held a surprise: it's a large group of seven in total. The previously-announced Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc will be joined by Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz, and Eddie Jordan. The Stig will return as well, of course.
Nissan unveiled the new 2017 Armada, and you might recognize the shape. It's a rebadged Nissan Patrol and a near-identical twin to the Infiniti QX80. It's still a body-on-frame SUV with four-wheel drive, now powered by a 5.6-liter V-8.
Chevrolet rolled into the 2016 Chicago Auto Show with the new 2017 Camaro 1LE. It's a track-focused Camaro package that ups the ante and puts an emphasis on handling. While power remains the same, the 1LE package changes the suspension, wheels, tires, and trim bits both inside and out, to give the Camaro a cohesive package that elevates its handling with more grip and better body control.
Photos of the 2017 Volvo V90 wagon have leaked, again--this time in the form of what appear to be official press images taken in a white room. The V90 will be the flagship wagon in the Swedish automaker's lineup; it's the five-door version of the new S90 sedan. Look for a formal debut on February 18.
BMW has wavered back and forth on whether it would create an M7, which is to say a 7-Series officially sanctioned, engineered, and powered by the M division. The latest word had been that a true M7 would not see the light of day--but this week BMW announced the 2017 M760i xDrive. It turns out to be a V-12 powered 7-Series with M bits, enough to give it an M badge, but not enough to call it an M7. It's sporty in the way the M235i is sporty against an actual M2.
