2011 Toyota Prius Review


2011 Toyota Prius MPV With Latest Reviews And Prices. Although still preoccupied with the completion of the recall, do not delay the program from Toyota Japan that have been scheduled. Included with the production of environmentally friendly vehicles.


2011 Toyota Prius is not the most comfortable car or the fastest on the market, but the Prius makes up for this mistake with a star rating fuel economy 51/48 mpg city / highway, the highest in the market.

Now that the hybrid market grows, it is important to learn more about the cars in this class thrives. Toyota Prius has been on the market since 1997, and it's come a long way. It obtained generous trunk and interior more spacious, and most importantly, the highest fuel economy ratings 51/48 mpg city / highway all hybrid cars and gasoline in the market.


They were right. From hybrid sedan on the market, the Prius has the best combination of cargo space, interior space and high fuel economy compared to other models. This is also the most affordable. One thing the Prius is not big on performance. Some reviewers say it handles like a tool, and others say it is only good for everyday use. However, if you want faster hybrid, it's a good idea to check out the competition.

Averaging 51/48 mpg city / highway, 2011 Toyota Prius hybrid most fuel efficient on the market, but with 1.8-liter hybrid powertrain that produces 134 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque, it is not the most powerful.

There are four trims: Prius II, III, IV and V. Each model receives the same powertrain.

Toyota has not released pricing for 2011 Toyota Prius, but the 2010 model starts at $ 22,800, the position of the Honda Insight which is cheaper and pricier Ford Fusion Hybrid and Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Power of the Prius' biggest fuel economy rating of 51/48 mpg city / highway that goes beyond hybrid cars and gasoline at this price range. To help maximize mileage driver, the Prius allows the driver to select one of three driving modes, each offering different performance characteristics and efficiency numbers: Eco, the most efficient fuel, Normal and Power, the most efficient.


2011 Prius is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder inline engine kilowatts of electricity and motor-60. This powertrain produces 134 horsepower and 105 pound feet of torque, which exceeds the Honda Insight 's 98 horsepower and 123 foot pounds of torque. Prius, however, is less powerful than the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Ford Fusion Hybrid. Combined, 's Fusion 2.5 four-cylinder engine and electric motor foot pump 191 horsepower and 136 pounds of torque, while the Camry has 147 horsepower and 138 foot pounds of torque. But their power comes at a cost, both have fuel economy ratings of 41/36 mpg city lower / highway and 31/35 mpg city / highway, respectively.

Prius will never be a sports car, but always will prioritize fuel economy. Prius does not disappoint in this arena. The EPA says gets an average of 51/48 mpg city / highway, the best mileage for gasoline-run cars in this price range.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee The Most Advanced Jeep


2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee – is probably best dubbed as an experience in “Jeep Lite.” Meanwhile, a car equipped with new engines, the long-anticipated 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar, our Grand Cherokee was missing something rather important. Based on the M-Class Mercedes-Benz architecture, a fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK2 to those who know) is by far the most advanced Jeep mainstay ever hit the market.


Options and models run gamut, from 4 × 2 base Laredo model with 3.6 liter V6 (like our tester) to 4 × 4, 5.7-liter V8-powered Overlands with high-adjustable air suspension, advanced multi-mode traction control and luxuries such as Range Rover.


The Grand Cherokee was introduced to much fanfare as a substitute for Jeep Cherokee 1993 to respectable, but soon established itself as a victim is able to stand off against the premium luxury SUV. Time was not kind to the Grand Cherokee in 2005 the third generation of its model year, however, who suffered from major cost cutting very diluted his appeal upscale.

Jeep says, but things are back on track for 2011. A now-defunct relationship with DaimlerChrysler of Germany gave access to a range of platforms and technologies in exchange for, well, almost everything in Auburn Hills. Namely, cash reserves, but it would not surprise us if the Germans looted all the furniture, clocks and hot water heaters in Michigan wide headquarters of Chrysler.


Off-road capable SUV with the rapid fall of the market, but our tester 4 × 2 is probably better suited for crossover rival, anyway. If you want to go the way - means that you have selected 4 × 4 Grand Cherokee - Cross store Toyota 4Runner, Nissan Xterra and Land Rover, LR4.

But if you're a pavement pounder interested in a high seating position and decent cargo space, put the Grand Cherokee Laredo like our tester against the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Edge, Kia Sorento and Toyota Highlander.


4 × 2 we offer the Grand Cherokee Laredo is mild, but still tilt the scales at around £ 4470. That fat does not help curb heavy acceleration, although we found a new V6 will be more capable of moving the Grand Cherokee around.

Rating 290 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 260 lb-ft. torque at 4800 rpm, we know this engine has more power to give. The newly-announced 2011 Dodge Challenger's Pentastar V6 boasts 305 horsepower, for example.

Past the highway requires kickdown from the Mercedes-sourced five-speed automatic (okay, even in the era of six-speed), but in-town driving is rare to accelerate above 3000 rpm.


V6 is smooth and quiet, almost no vibration transmission into the cabin and offers a somewhat high-rpm snarl. If there is, we miss muttered from the Hemi V8 is optional.

But we certainly did not miss when it comes to visit thirsty V8 petrol pump. Our tester returned a solid 23.5 mpg on the highway trek 250 kilometers and never dropped below 18 mpg in urban slogging. That hair above the EPA estimates 16 mpg city and 23 highway mpg.

But where we were very impressed with the steering wheel is the Grand Cherokee. Grand Cherokee had previously been entertaining on the sidewalk, especially thanks to the relative proportion of trim, but the 2011 adds responsive, smooth steering with the package. Surprisingly, the Grand Cherokee provides more feedback and response is faster than its kissing cousin, the M-Class. It was an absolute blast to throw through the byways of our favorite curvy two-lane, even with soft-riding tires. A sports car does not, but the line between off-roaders and pavement pounder getting blurrier.

2011 Dodge Charger Specs And Review


With its iconic character, contemporary fastback four-door coupe proportions, world-class performance, craftsmanship and refinement, and state-of-the-art connectivity features, the all-new 2011 Dodge Charger is the Dodge brand's flagship, and it proudly delivers premium, world-class E-segment sedan precision at an incredible value.


"Dodge is changing the rules of the game, and the all-new 2011 Charger embodies the brand's promise to deliver American performance machines that deliver world-class efficiency, technology, authentic materials and standout styling for our customers, who like us, are young at heart and make driving a priority," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "With its all-new fastback four-door coupe proportions, iconic styling to excite enthusiastic Dodge fans, benchmark performance and precision handling, the latest in-car technology and high-quality execution and materials, the Dodge Charger is loaded with attitude and innovation, and delivers an extreme dose of value."


2011 Dodge Charger received a number of significant upgrades, including fresh styling, high-quality interior materials, engine 3.6-liter all-new and more powerful V6 engine, suspension back again, electric-assist power steering, more standard features and new interface electronics. High-performance SRT8 model has been dropped for now, but it is possible to return in the future.

One of the most significant of these changes is the introduction of the all-new Pentastar V6 3.6-liter V6s that take place outside the model 2.7-liter and 3.5 liter. With 292 horsepower on tap - an increase of 114 hp and 42 hp respectively over the previous V6 engine - This new powertrain be a good alternative for the Charger R / T carryover 5.7-liter V8.


Charger interior has also received a makeover, with stylish looks and soft-touch materials to replace the look soft and hard plastic that gives the cabin the previous low-budget feel. List of standard features and options has increased substantially as well, and now includes the latest high-tech bells and whistles, including services that access the Sirius Travel Link info from a local gas prices for live weather radar image.

The change is most noticeable thing new exterior styling Charger's. This new version sports a front end looks more aggressive, striking shells on the hood and side panels, along with a new taillight treatments has 164 bright LEDs arranged in a typical pattern.


WORLD-CLASS PERFORMANCE, EXECUTION AND REFINEMENT

As the Dodge brand's all-new flagship four-door coupe, the 2011 Charger exemplifies how Chrysler Group is applying strict targets for world-class performance, quality, technology and refinement.

As Chrysler Group defines it, performance quality measures how well a vehicle performs compared with its competition. Dodge Charger engineers evaluated more than 320 physical characteristics of best-in-class sport sedans from Europe, Asia and North America, and then established criteria for the four-door fastback to compete as a world-class performance sedan. Criteria such as acceleration, braking, handling, seat comfort, quietness, storage space and fuel economy were benchmarked in the team's research.

The Dodge Charger's world-class structural stiffness provides the foundation for its world-class handling and dynamic driving performance. With respect to ride quality, precision steering and performance handling, the Charger was designed and validated to meet or exceed the performance standards of premium brands such as BMW and Lexus.

In addition, the Charger team used Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) principles and more than 4,100 customer "wants," which were integrated in the vehicle design and performance quality targets. Consumer products designed using DFSS generally are expected to better match customer desires and offer higher quality.

Significantly refined compared with its predecessor, the 2011 Dodge Charger was designed to match the noise, vibrations and harshness (NVH) performance of the benchmark vehicle in its class, the BMW 5-Series - a vehicle that costs thousands of dollars more. Evaluations in Chrysler Group's state-of-the-art aerodynamic and acoustic test facilities showed that Dodge engineers not only met their goal, but achieved quieter levels than other E-segment competitors.

To validate the design, Dodge engineers tested the Charger for more than 7 million miles during its reliability and durability evaluation in the company's scientific labs, at the proving grounds and on public roads in various climates.

Engineers also studied and set performance quality targets for more obscure vehicle attributes such as tire wear, door sound, windshield-wiper performance, trunk lighting and outward visibility — among hundreds of other things.

"The truck has become a core part of the Chevrolet for nearly all of its history 100 years to strengthen the Chevrolet Colorado. That legacy with expressive design, refinement and capability without compromise."


    Truck show features extended-cab body on high AWD chassis attitude and rides on big 20-inch wheels and tires off-road. Power comes from the engine efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel, which produces a broad torque band for an excellent cargo and towing capability.

    "Although this is a show vehicle, basic proportions and shapes convey a vision for next-generation Chevrolet Colorado that we will bring to the market," said Brad Merkel, GM's global vehicle line executive. "This reflects the stylish version of a new truck, which takes into account the ability of rough reliable trucks for commercial use as well as advanced repair for personal use."

    While the new Chevrolet Colorado is developed in GM's global product development organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it will meet the needs of local markets. Roberto Rempel, GM's global vehicle chief engineer, lived in Thailand for several months during the development of the truck, immersed himself in the market and observe how the Thai people use their trucks and road conditions they experienced.


    The design of the Colorado conveys strength through bodywork that appears tightly wrapped over the chassis and a wide stance. In the front, Chevrolet’s recognized gold bowtie and dual-port grille are framed by large headlamps that flow into the front fenders, and an extractor vent on the hood.

    Honda Hybrid Car is now all controls such as audio, Bluetooth and cruise control. A dead pedal is also available to rest your left foot. Honda has cleverly moved the gear lever to the center console instead of making the floor is installed. There were 12 speakers, 650 watt surround sound system with 2 zone climate control and rear seat entertainment package. Not to forget the satellite navigation system. Rear seat passengers are also pampered with a lot of 16-inch video monitor with an HDMI output. Extra width and length may seem insubstantial but then over the model 2010, one in 2011 to get more space. Unlike other minivans, it is a good space for even the last row passengers. AC works well here and even when sitting in the third row, there wasn'ta problem in hot climate regions. For new parents baptized, Honda has cleverly ensures that the second row of seats has a center section that can actually be moved 5.5 inches forward, so that parents do not have to worry about tend to their children. Folding mechanism on the third row seats split 60:40 is also the process that much easier now.

    2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Incredible Crossover


    Mitsubishi has a problem with the current formation. Unless you're looking for Lancer, your choice is limited to middle-size Galant sedan and Endeavor and Outlander crossover. Now, is contemplating seppuku Galant and Endeavor has not been completely redesigned since it first went on sale back in 2003. The Outlander, however, has something positive to offer. It can accommodate up to seven passengers (in emergencies), has been named Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick, and tops out at 28 miles per gallon on the highway.

    Latest industry trends to be found in the New York auto show is the incredible shrinking crossovers, exemplified by this Juke Nissan and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Both vehicles are making their debut in North America. (The Mitsubishi ASX known as RVR and elsewhere on the planet.)


    Mitsubishi know because just two competitive vehicles to choose from is not enough to compete in the industry are eager to fill every niche, and the company appeared to focus on developing two single bright spot in his lineup. Lancer has spawned many variants, the latter being the Lancer Sportback, fun-to-push trains that do not step on the top-trim Lancer Evolution. The Outlander, meanwhile, recently gave a name to a smaller 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, a five-passenger crossover are looking to make a mark in the crowded segment today.

    Of the two, the Juke is a strange but funny looking one, while the Sport Outlander look bigger. We also have to say it was more handsome than the larger Outlander Mitsubishi already in the lineup. With an overall length of 169.1 inches, it's just above the foot shorter than big brother, even though the same wheelbases of 105.1 inches.


    The Mitsu is supported by the Galant-based running gear, with engine, 148-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Now, that might sound a little weak in the jacked-up station wagon small, but Mitsubishi has tried to make this Sport Outlander light as possible. A base model with manual transmission weighs in at an estimated 3050 pounds, thanks to features like front fenders, plastic recycling and extensive use of high strength steel. Losing weight will be an important advance as a balance of performance cars to government fuel efficiency requirements. Mitsubishi Outlander Sport claims that the EPA numbers will get 31 mpg on the highway.

    As usual Outlander, Sport is the front-wheel drive, with the all-wheel-drive is optional. This is a simple on-demand arrangement, transferring torque to the rear wheels when slip occurs at the front. The base ES model has a manual five-speed, a continuously variable transmission with paddle shifters is optional at this level trims and standard on uplevel SE.


    Unlike the Outlander, which has a plastic interior that would not look out of place on Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, Sport has a soft-touch materials in the doors and instrument panel, surprising given the expected starting price $ 19,000. Uplevel SE models have features such as automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated front seats, and keyless entry system as standard. Options at this level monster trim including sunroof, navigation system with seven-inch screen, and 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system kicked. Sport Outlander will be sold in late 2010 as a model of 2011.


    GPS Data Inform To Us Of 20 worst bottlenecks



    Very annoying if we get stuck in traffic, wherever it is located. Even if it was only for a few minutes, the feeling of urgency and anger crept into the hearts and minds quickly. Now, imagine stuck in traffic several hours a day, five days a week. For some people, this is a way of life. To find out who has the worst journey in the country, Daily Beast studied and calculated the Top 20 worst congestion in America.

    The factors that go into a long list including corridor traffic, rush hour travel time of the longest stretches along the road and the time required to drive miles along the stretch of that during peak hours the highest volume. They also calculate how many bad stretch of road during the worst periods of peak hours versus normal driving. California Delta Highway/CA-4 took that honor in a breeze, took 318 percent longer to travel during busy periods.

    The data was gathered from GPS and smartphone tracking of four million vehicles by a company called INRIX, which the Daily Beast compiled into the top 20 list. Now, without further ado, the top 20 worst commutes in the nation:

    1. Riverside Freeway/Calif. Highway 91 eastbound, Los Angeles
    2. Lunalilo Freeway/I-1 eastbound, Honolulu
    3. California Delta Highway/Calif. Highway 4 westbound, San Francisco

    2011 Subaru Legacy Specs And Review


    2011 Subaru Legacy ranks 11 out of 19 Affordable Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 82 published reviews and test drives of the Subaru Legacy, and our analysis of reliability and safety data. The 2011 Subaru Legacy manages to measure up against other affordable midsize cars and remains the only one to come with standard all-wheel-drive.

    Reviews of the 2011 Subaru Legacy are generally mixed. Like all Subarus, the Legacy has standard all-wheel-drive, a unique feature that helps provide added safety and security. Yet, the forced inclusion of all-wheel-drive is a part of what some reviewers complain about. Despite the many benefits of all-wheel-drive, it also negatively affects fuel economy and acceleration.

    Reviewers are also mixed on the Legacy’s styling, which some find unattractive, though most agree that the Legacy offers comfortable accommodations for both front and rear passengers.

    Consumers checking out the 2011 Subaru Legacy should be sure to check out other affordable midsize cars with all-wheel-drive options. The Ford Fusion has been praised by the automotive press since its 2010 redesign and is available with all-wheel drive. The Suzuki Kizashi is also available with an all-wheel drive option. Reviewers praise the Kizashi’s sporty driving experience and premium feel, all of which is available for a reasonable price.

    The Legacy is available in seven trim levels, ranging from a basic 2.5i to a near-luxury 3.6R limited. The Legacy’s base price is a very reasonable $19,995 and comes with standard features such as a digital trip computer, a tire pressure monitoring system, cruise control and keyless entry. For 2011 the Legacy 2.5GT is only available in Limited trim. The 2011 Legacy 2.5GT adds faux carbon-fiber trim on the dashboard, aluminum pedals and silver stitching on the seats and armrest.

    New for 2011, the Legacy comes standard with folding rear-view mirrors. Legacy models that have the optional harman/kardon audio system now come with a three-month trial subscription to XM radio.

    2011 Hyundai Equus Review And Specs


    The 2011 Hyundai Equus to prove that a Lexus LS 460 in the scene by offering the best value proposition in the luxury flagship segment. We want to see how Hyundai's new range-topping model stand to-day hard day American life, and so we just added one to the Autoblog Garage Long Term.


    The thing about the 2011 Hyundai Equus: It’s the nicest car you’ve probably never seen.
    Let’s cut to the chase here. Let’s just show you the car, because if you’re like most people that I encountered when I was standing near the Hyundai Equus, you’ll have one, two, or both reactions:
    1. What is that car?
    2. It looks nice.
    So here it is:
    Yes, this is a Hyundai that has an MSRP—not including a $900 freight charge—of $64,500. Yes, you read “Hyundai” and “$64,500” in the same sentence.

    People can quibble all day as to whether that should be the case, but as someone likes to say to me with an unassailable logic, “It is what it is.”
    And the Equus is a hell of a car.


    The things that quite luxurious for rear seat passengers, as features such as lying down power and massage functions have been added, and the rear entertainment system, refrigerator, power headrests and illuminated vanity mirrors. And yes, our car did have a lie right rear passenger seat. Check out the full list of our cars on the Monroney equipment.

    Before we proceed, we must acknowledge that we have not organized as we had planned with another update on our two long-term cars - the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT and the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Street. You will hear about the good fortune in the near future so, and to fix this problem with disorder, we will update our long-term is slightly different from Equus.


    This Specification of Hyundai Equus 2011

    • Engine: 4.6-liter DOHC V8 with dual continuous variable valve timing and variable induction
    • Material: Aluminum block and heads
    • Horsepower: 385 @ 6,500 rpm (premium fuel; 378 hp with regular)
    • Torque: 333 lb-ft @ 3,500 rpm (premium fuel; 324 lb-ft with regular)
    • Transmission: ZF 6-speed electronic and SHIFTRONIC manual shift mode
    • Wheelbase: 119.9 in.
    • Length: 203.1 in.
    • Width: 74.4 in.
    • Height: 58.7 in.
    • Curb weight: 4,486 to 4,592 lb
    • EPA fuel economy: 16/24 mpg


    There is are additional goodies for those who opt for the Equus Ultimate (there are two trim levels: Signature for $58,000 and Ultimate for $64,500), of which only two are of interest to anyone but the rear-seat occupants: the forward-view cornering camera (this, presumably, helps when trying to edge out onto a perpendicular street in that there is an image on the navigation screen of the front view with a bit on either side) and the power trunk lid (what can be said?). The other items include a rear entertainment system and increased luxuriation of the rear seats (yes, I just made that word up, but there is no other word for it: what happens when you pile lux on lux?).

    Car Environmentally Friendly Automotive Breakthrough - Hybrid Cars

    http://global-warm-ing.co.cc/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/hybrid-cars.jpg
    Hybrid Cars electric-powered has almost no pollution at all. A car which is free carbon emissions so as it will not aggravate the global warming. But, this dream turned into an urgent need due to the fuel price is skyrocketing. The cars that fuelled by hydrogen or alcohol still need the time for developing; hybrids may be the most widely marketed because it does not require the new infrastructure.

    Ford Focus Race Car Concept 2011



    Whoever believed that the new Ford Focus was just a boring sedan for everyday use was wrong. And Ford has proof of that statement in the form of the new Focus race car arriving today at the Los Angeles Auto Show. This new concept demonstrates the car’s potential in road and touring car championships with teams around the world, at least that is what Ford is saying. We don’t know if we buy that statement just yet.
    The concept car is powered by a 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost I-4 engine and features performance coil-over adjustable dampers, Ford Racing upgraded sway bars with adjustable end links, front brakes with 320-millimeter two-piece rotors, and race pads. The concept sits on Anthracite 18-inch wheels and Hoosier race tires.
    The interior also got the racing treatment with an FIA Super 2000 regulations roll cage, Recaro racing seats, an AIM MXL Pista data system, and an AIM Smarty Cam. Added safety features include a Ford Racing fire suppression system and Ford Racing six-point safety harness.
    We’re still not entirely convinced that the Focus race car will make Ford proud out on the track, but this is just a concept as of yet and should serve as a decent base for the production model. Ford is production will be ready by 2012, leaving them plenty of time to build on a good thing.
