Jeep Trailcat concept, 2016 Easter Jeep Safari
Following all the reveals at last week’s 2016 Geneva Motor Show, this week, understandably, has been a little more subdued. Nevertheless, we still learned about Aston Martin’s future, managed to drive the all-new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, celebrated BMW’s 100th anniversary, and even saw a Hellcat-powered Jeep Wrangler. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.
Aston Martin is set to have some busy years ahead of it. The company is planning to launch seven cars in seven years, the first of which, the DB11, made its debut last week in Geneva. On top of all this, the company has also launched a new consulting service similar to what Lotus Engineering has been offering.
Mercedes-Benz has launched a new generation of its E-Class sedan, which we discovered during our first drive is more refined, more dynamic, and loaded with much more tech than its predecessor. So far, just two variants have been confirmed for the United States, one of which is the sporty new E43 from Mercedes-AMG.
BMW turned 100 this week and celebrated by unveiling a new concept car. The concept is meant to hint at the BMW of the future, one that will produce zero emissions, be capable of driving itself, and feature shape-shifting skin. It represents the BMW brand and there will be additional concepts for fellow BMW Group brands BMW Motorrad, Mini and Rolls-Royce.
Jeep has actually built a Wrangler powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 we all know as the Hellcat. But before you get too excited note that it’s just a concept. It's one of seven concepts Jeep built for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, and they're all incredibly cool.
Porsche is making it easier to hop behind the wheel of its Macan crossover. For the 2017 model year, the Macan gets a new engine option that not only sees the cylinder count reduced but also the price tag.
While it’s easy to say that Lamborghini’s Centenario supercar is just an uprated Aventador, there are actually significant changes throughout. We talked to Lamborghini to find out just what they were.
