2020 Range Rover Evoque: Redesign, Specs, News, Release

After the investment of about $1.3 billion and hours of testing and designing, JLR has brought the all-new Evoque in front of the public. The brand’s fast-selling and smallest SUV benefits from the improvements on all fronts but still remains recognizable form.

The second-generation 2020 Range Rover Evoque comes on the new platform and with the almost all-new body structure. The model improves also the interior comfort combining it with the top-notch tech and safety technologies. The look is also sleeker and more elegant while there are also more efficient and powerful powertrains.

2020 Range Rover Evoque

2020 Range Rover Evoque: Platform, Design

The redesigned, second generation 2020 Range Rover Evoque started the transformation with the new platform and body structure. The Premium Transverse Architecture is intended for brand’s smaller models with the goal of providing better electrification and performance. The new platform is the mixed-material construction with the high strength and regular steel, aluminum and magnesium in the mix. The new design opens the door for the mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies as well as for the Ingenium family of engines.

With the new underpinning, the redesigned Evoque also sports the sleeker Velar-inspired look and a 90 percent of the body structure is also new. The new body is placed on 0.8 inches longer wheelbase. This translates to more rear legroom but with the shorter overhangs, the model is actually slightly shorter.

Styling:

The look of the new Evoque is the evolution of the current design with the obvious similarities with the Velar SUV. The same basic look remains in the combination with the sloping roofline and high beltline. The models gained, however, the new grille and headlights and redesigned lower openings. The slim grille version has the honeycomb pattern and comes with the narrow, nicely accentuated headlights.

The model has also the smooth body lines and flush door handles. The sculpted fenders add a bit of the contrast to the flat panels. The rear side is also fresh with the new two-piece taillights.

The brand will offer the new Evoque with nice contrasting body painting options and wheel sizes ranging from 17- 21 inches.

Interior, equipment:

The interior of the new Evoque comes with the improved comfort and the latest technologies. The stretched wheelbase opens more space for the rear passengers and the new seats also boost the comfort. With the increased passenger comfort, the new Evoque improved also the cargo area to 50.5 cubic feet.

The handsome look of the model is matched with the high-quality materials and rich textures inside the cabin. The model also gained the Touch Pro Duo touchscreen system with the pair of 10.2-inch screens which debuted in the Velar model. The Evoque provides also Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. In front of the driver is a 12.-3 digital instrument cluster and there is also the head-up display projecting the information on the windshield.  The newly added ground view camera also provides the picture of what is underneath and ahead of the front wheels.

2020 Range Rover Evoque

2020 Range Rover Evoque: Powertrains

The power for the new 2020 Range Rover Evoque comes from the two powertrain options in the US while the diesel options will appear on the Old Continent.

The base Evoque will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium engine. The unit makes 246 hp and torque of 369 lb-ft compared to the previous version 237 hp and torque of 251 lb-ft. In the combination with the engine is a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

The option will be a P300 version with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and 48-volt mild-hybrid system. The power it provides is 296 hp and the MHEV system. Using also the 14.7-hp belt-integrated generator it provides 6 percent improved efficiency and improved torque response.

JLR hasn’t confirmed yet the plug-in hybrid powertrain for the US which will appear in Europe next year. The system will integrate the 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with the power output of 197 hp in the combination with the starter generator and electric motor. The 40.2-hp generator will power the front wheels while the 106-hp electric motor will spin the rear wheels and get the power from the 11.3- kWh battery.

The model also features the new-generation all-wheel-drive system which can transfer the power between the rear wheels simulating the torque vectoring and can also lock the rear wheels. The Terrain Select 2 system will also be available with the modes for Sand, Mud, Snow, Eco, etc. The SUV boasts also lifted ground clearance. The 8.3 inches of the ground clearance comes with the 20-degree approach and 30-degree departure angles while can go through the 23.6-inch deep water.

2020 Range Rover Evoque: Release, Price

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque will go on sale in the US next year after the debut at the next Chicago Auto Show. We will know the price after the debut but it should go slightly up from the current base $42, 000.

2020 Ford Escape: Redesign, Styling, Options, Release

The Blue Oval Brand is working on the brand-new Ford Escape
and the model should hit the roads as the 2020 version. The current generation
Escape has been around since 2013 and the all-new model will bring modern
upgrades to keep model competitive in the fastest-growing, compact crossover
SUV segment.

The new 2020 Ford Escape will come on the new platform and with the new Focus-inspired styling. The fourth-generation Escape should return the hybrid powertrain but this time the plug-in hybrid version while will offer turbocharged engines in the conventionally powered variants. The model will also get more modern interior and the production should continue in Louisville, Kentucky.

2020 Ford Escape

2020 Ford Escape: Design

The prototype version of the new generation 2020 Ford Escape
was seen while testing and it seems that the new compact crossover SUV hides
significant styling changes under the camo.

As the latest reports suggest and judging by the spy photos,
the newest Escape should apply the similar styling language as the recent Focus
which isn’t available in the US. The upcoming Escape seems to have a more
pronounced nose with the new grille and headlights. The grille uses the mesh
pattern instead of the current crossbar style and the headlights appear also to
have sharper shape. The model has also the new vertically oriented driving
lights. 

The overall shape of the Escape looks familiar but with
smoother body lines. The camouflage can’t also hide the beltline which seems
rising faster toward the C pillar.

The rear should also borrow styling cues from the new Focus.
The new taillights and sculpted tailgate will be in the combination with the
new rear bumper.

On the top of that, Ford will use the new platform for the
2020 Escape. The model will be based on the small car architecture which
underpins the latest Fiesta. The new Escape seems also to have a slightly
larger body.

Interior, equipment:

No details or spy photos of model’s interior yet. The larger body will provide an increase in the passenger and cargo space but we shouldn’t expect plenty of new room. Ford will offer the revised materials and trims combined with the latest infotainment system and advanced safety gear.

2020 Ford Escape

2020 Ford Escape: Powertrains

With the new platform and styling, the 2020 Ford Escape will
also introduce the upgraded powertrains but most details are still unknown.

As the latest reports suggest, the new Escape will come with
the 1.5-liter turbocharged engines as standard. This displacement used in the
new Focus comes in either 140 and 180 hp configurations. The high-performance
version will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit.

Ford will mix the engines with the 8-speed automatic
transmission. Both front- and all-wheel drive will be available.

The new Escape should also appear with the plug-in hybrid
powertrain sometime in the life cycle. Ford promised 24 hybrid and plug-in
hybrid models in next few years.

2020 Ford Escape: Release, Price

The 2020 Ford Escape will likely debut in the first half of
the year and go on sale later in the year. Closer to the market launch we will
also know the price of the redesigned model.  

2019 BMW X6: Redesign, Changes, Price

BMW replaced the very popular but aging X5 with the new-generation model recently and now moving the focus to the coupe-like styled X6. The Sports Activity Coupe X6 was recently spotted testing in the disguised form but the model looks to be in the final production body and the version spotted seems to be the hot M50i.

Well, BMW hasn’t revealed details but the new third-generation X6 will unsurprisingly follow the suite of the recently redesigned X5. So, with the slightly restyled exterior, the new-gen X6 will benefit from the new architecture, updated engines, new interior, and tech. The model should appear sometime in mid-2019 and could even debut as the 2019 BMW X6 or more likely the 2020 model.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Design

As it is the case with the current generation, the new 2019 BMW X6 will build on the X5 model and add more excitement to the look with the coupe-like roofline. The spotted prototype of the new-generation X6 has a more athletic body and borrow from both the X5 and X4 models.

Up front, we can detect a larger kidney grille version like on the new X5 and both headlights and taillights are thinner and more modern. The more dynamic front end comes in the combination with the X4-inspired tailgate and attractive coupe roof style. The waistline and the rest of the bodywork looks similar to the new X5.

With the slightly revised exterior style, the X6 like the all-new X5 will switch to the new architecture and should also grow in size. The new-gen X5 gained inches in all directions and the wheelbase is also 1.6 inches longer. The similar treatment is expected for the sportier X6.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new X6 wasn’t yet in front of the spy camera but the cabin of the redesigned X5 surely gives us a clear picture about its look. The new-gen model will get the redesigned dash and center console alongside the higher quality materials.

The model will also follow the X5 regarding the available equipment. By default, there will be the digital instrument cluster and large center display. The newest iDrive operating system will also be integrated as well as the best of the active safety technologies.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Performance

When it comes to the engine options, the 2019 BMW X6 won’t also be the different story from the new X5. With the new architecture, the model will also introduce the updated engines.

The entry level will be the 40i model with the inline-6 engine. The 3.0-liter turbo unit will deliver around 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque like in the redesigned X5. The new X6 will again offer the buyers with the six-cylinder option and the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbocharged V-8 will make around 456 hp and torque up to 479 lb-ft.

The 8-speed automatic will transfer power to the all-wheel-drive system. Expect also the 60-mph run in about 5.3 seconds with the six-cylinder engine and around 4.6 seconds with the V-8.

2019 BMW X6: Arrival, Price

The 2019 BMW X6 should appear next spring and with the slightly increased price like the new X5.

2020 Audi Q7: Refresh, Changes, Arrival

The seven-passenger, full-size Audi Q7 SUV approached the mid-update after the redesigned model arrived for the 2017 model year. The family hauler was spotted several times and we can detect the changes on model’s front and rear fascias.

Audi will also boost the connectivity and safety tech of the sleek and comfortable SUV while major design upgrades are not expected inside the cabin. The 2020 Audi Q7 will also improve the power and efficiency as the reports claim while will likely keep the same range of the advanced powertrains and no diesel in the States of course.

2020 Audi Q7

2020 Audi Q7: Design

The second-generation, MLB-platform-based, multi-material Audi Q7 is the sleek and attractive SUV but with the modifications on the front and rear-end sections, the 2020 Audi Q7 will adopt some styling cues of the newer Audi models.

Based on the spy photos, Audi hasn’t changed the design of the model’s profile and the sleek body panels combined with the defined character line which stretches around the tailgate will continue in the same form.

The front-end section is, however, where the transformation begins. The new headlights design uses the styling cues from the Audi A6 while the grille version on the prototype seems a bit smaller than on the current model.

Audi seems also that made some changes in the lower bumper area but they don’t look so obvious. The same is with the rear side which has almost identical taillights as the current version.

Interior, equipment:

Indie the cabin, Audi will surely upgrade connectivity and tech features plus add fresh material and texture options. However, there is no proof that the model will adopt the dash design as on the new Q8 despite it could be the case.

The model will also upgrade with the latest crash-avoidance systems. It will be well equipped from the base variant and provide great interior and ride comfort. The different high-quality material options will be mixed with the attractive trim pieces and premium comfort features. Audi will also add the new steering wheel.

2020 Audi Q7 1

2020 Audi Q7: Powertrains

Audi will likely improve the power and efficiency ratings of the 2020 Audi Q7 but no exact details about the powertrain upgrades.

What is sure the diesel-powered version won’t appear in the US while on the Old Continent the 3.0-liter TDI will be in the offer in several output options as well as the potent V-8 diesel in the SQ7.

Expect the US version with the turbo-4 and V-6 turbo options but with the improved performance and efficiency. The current 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine provides 252 hp and torque of 273 pound-feet. The 3.0-liter V-6 supercharged engine boosts the performance with available 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.

2020 Audi Q7: Arrival, Price

The 2020 Audi Q7 will hit the market in late 2019. The mid-update won’t affect the price radically and the model will again start around $50, 000.

surely repeat the currently only available 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This unit is
also under the hood of the new XT6 and makes 310 hp and torque of 271
pound-feet.

The reports suggest, however, the introduction of the GM’s

The new generation RDX sports the new exterior design and better performance and in the fast-growing segment, it was on the sales chart in front of the names such as the BMW X3, Audi Q3. Mercedes GLC, etc., at some periods.

2020 Acura RDX

2020 Acura RDX: Design

The recent redesign brought the new RDX on the new platform and larger in all directions. The model rides on the 2.6-inch longer wheelbase while has 2.4 inches more in lengths than the version its replaced.

The new generation model also adopted the design language defined with the pentagonal grille and attractive Jewel Eye headlights. But the more angular body, sweeping lines on the side panels and sharply styled rear also boost the visual impression.

2020 Genesis GV80: News, Design, Release

Hyundai’s upmarket division Genesis has had the focus on the
sedan models so far but with the SUV sells booming the brand is now changing
the course in that direction. The Genesis GV80 Concept presented at the 2017
New York Auto Show hinted the arrival of the first SUV model from the brand and
the upcoming mid-size GV80 was spotted in the form which seems production
ready. The model should hit the market as the 2020 Genesis GV80 and go against
the established names in the industry like the BMW X5, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE,
etc. The reports indicate also that Genesis has another smaller GV70 SUV in the
plan to compete in the segment with the BMW X3.

The brand’s new model should borrow sharp styling cues from the mentioned concept model while inside the cockpit we should expect a similar design as in the brand’s sedans.  The engine range should also mimic the powertrain options in the sedan lineup with the possible introduction of the new V-6 unit.

2020 Genesis GV80

2020 Genesis GV80: Design

The 2020 Genesis GV80 is still the unsolved mystery as
Geneses hides details about the model while we can draw some cues from the
prototype version.

First of all, it’s not known yet what platform the new
Genesis SUV will use. Judging by the spy photos the model is likely based on
the rear-wheel-drive architecture of the G80 sedan. Some sources suggest also
the stretched Santa Fe’s platform or the unit from the new Palisade model. Still,
the first scenario seems like the most probable.

On the other hand, the styling of the model seems to have
inhered the sharp design cues from the Concept version. The mesh grille seems
to have the similar design as on the GV80 Concept but slightly redefined
proportions. The horizontal oriented headlights follow also the pattern form
the concept car but with the enlarged dimensions and more conventional design.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin, the mid-size Genesis SUV should use
similar design cues as the brand’s newest sedans. Still, the model will get a
unique steering wheel and reports claim also the new controllers for the
model. 

The GV80 will, of course, employ the high-quality materials combined with contrasting surfaces and trim details. The latest tech will be used and advanced safety systems like adaptive cruise control, emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitors, etc.

2020 Genesis GV80

2020 Genesis GV80: Powertrains

the progress and arrive with the 2020 Genesis GV80. The model will offer both
rear-drive and four-wheel drive option and automatic transmission.

A 3.3-liter turbocharged V-6 engine used in the G80 should
also be the option. This engine makes 365 hp and torque of 376 lb-ft in the
sedan model. Other options from the sedan a 3.8-liter V6 and potent 420 hp
5.0-liter V-8 could also be the part of the deal. The plug-in hybrid version
should appear at some point.

2020 Genesis GV80: Release, Price

The 2020 Genesis GV80 should reach the showroom late in the
year. Closer to the launch date more details will surface as well as the price.
The model should start in the upper $60,000-range.

2020 Buick Envision: Changes, Design, Specs

The Chinese-built, mid-sized, five-seater Buick Envision is closing to the new model year after the 2019 refresh. While the model dropped the price for the recent mid-update it gained the updated styling and interior followed by the more powerful engine and the new 9-speed automatic transmission.

The next 2020 Buick Envision will continue to benefit from the mentioned upgrades and there won’t be major modifications before the next redesign probably for the 2022 version. The buyers should, however, expect new body color options and Buick might also make some of the advanced safety systems more accessible. The engine options and design will continue to the new model year in the same forms and the trim range should also stay in the same order.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Design

The 2020 Buick Envision will reprise the design theme of the current, refreshed version. The elegant, mid-size crossover gained the revised head and taillights for the recent refresh and the new grille version also adorns the front-end design. The waterfall design was discontinued in the favor of the sleeker chrome wing style.

The Envision has the sculpted rear-end design and profile lines and the sheet metal won’t change the structure and style before the next redesign. The new model year will, however, bring new color options and wheel design.

Interior, equipment:

The Envision changed just a few things inside the cabin for the recent refresh and the next version will stay in the same position as the current version regarding the cab style. The model will appear with the same control’s layout and material patterns. The trim range will likely stay as the current as well.

The Envision will deliver the new IntelliLink infotainment system with the 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility features in all grades. The standard equipment will also be the heated and power front seats, dual-zone climate control, a Wi-Fi hotspot and more. The new version could, however, broad the availability of some advanced safety systems for the new model year.
