Volvo’s next-generation XC60 has been spotted ahead of a likely market launch in late 2017. So far it looks like a smaller, more athletic version of the XC90. Shortly after its launch, we should see new versions of the S60 and V60.

Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] new F-150 Raptor hasn’t even gone on sale but Hennessey Performance is already offering a 6x6 conversion. Hennessey also has a power upgrade to extract over 600 horsepower from the Raptor’s V-6.

It’s time once again for Motor Authority to name the best car to buy for the coming year. Out of all the vehicles we’ve driven, we’ve compiled a list of six finalists. One of these will be declared the winner, though we don’t know which it is yet.

You'll find all these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
