2016 Honda Ridgeline unibody ute debuts in Detroit

The second-generation Honda Ridgeline ute has made its debut at the 2016 Detroit auto show sporting a much more conservative and traditional design than the original. As with the original Ridgeline, the new model eschews the body-on-frame construction of its mid-size rivals in the States, using a unibody platform that seems to be shared largely with the latest-generation Pilot SUV.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat confirmed in Detroit

In news that will surprise few, the hotly anticipated Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat has been confirmed for a market launch in 2017. Talk of a Grand Cherokee even more powerful than the current 324kW 6.4-litre SRT model has been circulating since the supercharged 527kW 6.2-litre Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat models appeared in 2014. Reports have previously hinted at an insider confirmation of the new model, but today’s developments mark the first ‘official’ word.

The new Cruze hatchback – which may or may not be sold in Australia – was shown in RS guise, but unlike Chevrolet’s arch-rival Ford, with its Focus RS, the bowtie version is more about looking sporty than offering enormous performance.
