We’re quickly approaching the announcement of our annual Motor Authority Best Car To Buy award for 2017. Among the finalists is the 2017 Audi R8. Why? It has drop-dead gorgeous looks, docile road manners, and track capability all rolled into the one package.

It’s finally been spotted, the Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine we all know as the Hellcat. New video reveals the telltale whine of the SUV’s supercharged engine.

China’s Geely has launched a new brand under the name Lynk & Co. The brand’s first model is a compact SUV that will go on sale in China in 2017 and in Europe the following year. To stand out, Lynk & Co is equipping its cars with connectivity features including built-in car sharing.

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