2020 Toyota Highlander: Redesign, Changes, Arrival

Toyota’s reliable, mid-size, three-row Highlander crossover
SUV is faced now with many updated, redesigned or newly-introduced models. Ford
revealed recently the heavily-improved Explorer and the Highlander has also the
updated Honda Pilot and Buick Encore in the sight but also the newcomers such
as the Kia Telluride, Subaru Ascent and Hyundai Palisade. The all-new
Highlander arrived for 2014 and received the mid-update for the 2017 version.
Toyota has, however, been caught testing the new-generation 2020 Toyota
Highlander recently.

Details about the fifth-generation Highlander are still scarce but the three-row family hauler should grow in size and move on the new platform. The styling should also see the revisions in accordance to brand’s latest design language while model should also come with the heavily reworked interior and newest tech, comfort and safety features. The powertrain range should again include the gasoline and electrified versions.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Design, Platform

Toyota is prepping the new 2020 Toyota Highlander and like
many of its recent models, the version will be based on the stretched version
of the TNGA modular platform which forms also the base of the models like the
CH-R, Avalon, Camry, RAV4, etc. With the Toyota Global New architecture, the
Highlander should provide better performance and flexibility plus weigh less
while the prototype versions suggest also the enlarged dimensions.

Form the visual point of view, it seems that the test
version hides the styling similar to what we can see on recently all-new RAV4.
The styling cues we saw initially on the FT-AC concept model should be applied
to the new Highlander as well. That should mean hexagonal grille design
combined with swept-back headlights and dynamic front bumper style. 

The profile seems also to be coming with the trapezoidal
shaped fender flares and cleaner lines. The rear will also receive the new
taillights and resculpted tailgate and rear bumper.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, we should expect more passenger and cargo
space as the prototype version seem to have stretched wheelbase and length. The
current Highlander provides max cargo capacity of 84 cubes and just 14 cubic
feet with the all seats functional.

The new Highlander will also arrive with the new interior
design and upgraded materials and textures. The model should use similar dash
elements placement as the RAV4 with the center screen sitting atop the middle
of the dash and new air vents.

The new generation version will also adopt the latest Entune infotainment platform with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The safety will also be updated to the latest Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite with the sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, etc.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Powertrain

No details have leaked yet about the powertrain Toyota will
use in the new generation 2020 Toyota Highlander.   

The range should include the four-cylinder and V-6 gasoline
units like in the current version and the electrified option as well. The
possible candidates should be the units from the mid-size Camry sedan. A
2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with power around 200 hp and the V-6 unit with
the potential around 300 hp. Both engines should come in the combination with
the 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The hybrid could combine updated 3.5-liter V-6 engine with
the battery-powered electric motor for a slightly improved total output.

2020 Toyota Highlander: Arrival, Price

The new 2020 Toyota Highlander should debut in the second
half of 2019. The price will likely see a modest increase across the range.

2020 Cadillac XT5: Refreshed, Changes, Release

Cadillac has been busy with launching the new and redesigned
models with the emphasis on the SUV type versions. The brand has the plan to
deliver the new or refreshed models through 2021. The small XT4 crossover SUV
arrived as the 2019 model and the all-new is also a three-row 2020 XT6 model.
The largest SUV in brand’s range, the Cadillac Escalade should also debut in
the redesigned form and the new CT4 and CT5 sedans are also the part of the
plan. The brand promises also the new electric crossover. However, the brand’s
successful, mid-size XT5 crossover will also get some attention and the
refreshed version will hit the market as the 2020 Cadillac XT5.

Cadillac hasn’t yet revealed the changes and specs of the refreshed XT5 but leaked details reveal modest styling changes. The model should also come with the upgraded tech and safety range and could also bring the turbocharged inline-4 option. 

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Design

The luxury XT5 crossover SUV based on GM’s C1XX platform
debuted for the 2017 model year and replaced the old-nomenclature Cadillac SRX.
For the fourth model year after the current generation launch, the XT5 model
will get the mid-cycle update and available details suggest usual styling
updates of one mid-update.

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 will switch from the current grille
design to the new style inspired by the 2016 Escala Concept. The new grille
should provide a more elegant style while it seems that the model will keep the
same headlights design. The shape and size of the model will also keep the
current form and the profile will also look familiar.

The rear will also display a new signature of tealights
while the rest should keep the same style and contours.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the refreshed XT5 should also adopt some
styling cues of the newest SUVs in the range and upgrade tech and safety
equipment.

A well-equipped from the base version, the XT5 will provide
features like the dual zone climate control, keyless ignition and entry, power
front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, etc. The leather upholstery and
heated front seats will be available one step higher than the base trim.

The model will also include the latest infotainment system and should also provide more safety systems available across the range.  The mid-update could also bring the Super Cruise partial self-driving tech.

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Powertrains

As for the powertrain options, the 2020 Cadillac XT5 will
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
new 9-speed automatic transmission. The big update could also be an addition of
the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine which is available in other markets.
The version of the engine in China makes 258 hp where the brand offers also the
mild-hybrid system but no information appeared suggesting this possibility for
the US market.

2020 Cadillac XT5: Release, Price

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 should make the premiere in the coming
months with the on-sale date later in the year. The new upgrades should also
lift the price slightly.     

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Redesign, Changes, Engines, Debut

While Chevy presented the redesigned Chevy Silverado early this year the brand is also simultaneously working on the new-generation Silverado HD models and the truck-based SUVs. So, it’s not strange that the half-ton Silverado made the first to the public as this model will borrow the design, running gear, tech, etc. to the upcoming vehicles. The larger Suburban was spotted earlier while testing but the fast-selling Tahoe will also enter the new generation as the 2020 model.

The 2020 Chevy Tahoe, based on the spy photos and some sources, will finally switch to the independent rear suspension while coming also with the redesigned chassis and lighter. The model will get the modernized styling and interior adding also the newest teach features. The powertrain range should provide better performance and efficiency, with the possibility of the diesel engine introduction.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Design

The new, three-row 2020 Chevy Tahoe will share the same platform with the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 and come much lighter. With the extensive use of the high-tensile steel in the new underpinning and aluminum alloy for the swing-body elements, the new Tahoe should also reduce the weight significantly. The new-generation Tahoe could weigh as much 400 pounds less than the version it replaces. However, at the same time, the model could gain additional inches for the extended interior capacity.

Visually, the new version should come with the more modern styling but the heavily camouflaged prototype doesn’t reveal much. The model will sport the dual-port grille combined with the new headlights. The body lines and edges seem also to be softened but we will have a clear picture of model’s new look when the introduction takes place likely early next year.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new Tahoe should increase the level of luxury, comfort and convenience. There should also be the increased interior capacity thanks to the additional inches and new cabin configuration.

The model will also get the newest tech features Chevy has on offer. The new infotainment system with the smartphone support and new center display will appear alongside the modern safety systems. The large SUV will rely on the systems like the adaptive cruise control, lane control, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, etc.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Powertrains

As for the engine choices, we should expect the 2020 Chevy Tahoe with the duo of familiar V-8 engines.

A 5.3-liter V-8 engine should appear with the improved fuel saving system and the new 8-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque ratings should stay around 355 hp and 383 lb-ft.

A 6.3-liter V-8 should be a more potent V-8 option in the combination with the new 10-speed automatic transmission.  The power with this engine should move to around 420 hp and torque to 460 lb-ft.

However, the next-generation Tahoe could also gain the diesel engine option. Again, related with the light-duty Silverado a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 would produce around 282 hp and torque of 450 lb-ft.

The new Tahoe will also switch to the rear independent suspension and will also provide the off-road upgrades.

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Release, Price

The redesigned 2020 Chevy Tahoe will likely debut at the Auto Show early next year. The price will likely move the starting point around $50, 000 but it will be known after the debut.

2020 Ford Explorer: Redesign, Engines, Arrival

Ford is in the process of readying the new-generation version of the popular, mid-size Explorer crossover. The heavily camouflaged prototype models have already been spotted on the roads and Ford also teased the audience with the police interceptor version with the hybrid bits.

We still missing precise details and full picture about the new version Explorer but many details have already found the way to the public. The new 2020 Ford Explorer will change the platform and offer several powertrain options including the hybrid version and the sporty ST variant. The model will continue to offer seven or eight seating positions and add the latest tech and safety equipment.

2020 Ford Explorer

2020 Ford Explorer: Platform, Design

It’s not the secret that the next 2020 Ford Explorer will switch to the new platform as the part of the full redesign. The Explorer moved from the body-on-frame structure to the unibody design with the traverse engine setup in 2011. The next version will, however, make the new transition to the rear-wheel-drive-based, longitudinal-engine-layout, unibody platform which is shared with the Lincoln Aviator.

The new platform will come with the sleek body style but the shape will stay familiar as well as the profile silhouette. The model will have a strong character line on the side panels and adopt the new front-end design. The civilian version will have the same LED headlights as the Police Interceptor and the front fascia will introduce the new trapezoidal grille version. The front bumper area will have defined edges and style similar to the Land Rover family SUVs.

Interior, equipment:

No many details about the interior but the new Explorer will boost the interior comfort and space and offer also the seven-seat capacity. The model will use the space more efficiently and upgraded materials and tech features.

The model will have a large tablet-style center display with the Sync3 infotainment platform. The standard will also be smartphone compatibility features and available wi-fi capability, wireless charging, premium sound system, etc.

The model will also boost its safety potential with the modern systems and improved structure. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite will be able with the system like the line keep assist, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitoring, collision prevention with pedestrian detection and more.

2020 Ford Explorer

All options will be in the pair with the 10-speed automatic transmission. The options will also include the rear- and all-wheel drive.

In the civilian applications, the new Explorer will install the 2.3-liter turbo-4, 3.3-liter V-6 with the hybrid alternative and the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 under the hood of the ST version. No details about the power and torque ratings expect the ST version should provide around 400 hp and about equivalent torque number.

2020 Ford Explorer: Release, Price

The 2020 Ford Explorer will make the debut later in the year and go on sale next summer. We expect the starting price to move around $36, 000 from the current $33, 000 starting point.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: News, Design

Honda’s popular CR-V SUV has a versatile and roomy cabin and also delivers a comfortable ride with plenty of safety gear in all models. The model was all-new for the 2017 model year and Honda promised recently the hybridization of the entire light-duty truck range. The 2019 CR-V will appear with minimal changes without of the styling and powertrain upgrades when speaking about the currently available engine options but according to some reports the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid could appear in late 2019 model year or wait for the 2020 version.

What’s is known so far, the hybrid powertrain should use the same formula as Accord Hybrid sedan with firm’s two-motor configuration. The styling and interior should be very similar to the petrol-powered models.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Design

There are no details from Honda about the hybrid version of the desirable CR-V but if the model arrives as the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid, it won’t differ much visually from the current non-hybrid version. On the hand, if Honda waits for the 2020 model year launch the model could come with the refreshed styling.

In any case, there won’t be obvious differences between the hybridized model and conventionally powered CR-Vs. The model will continue in the same shape and size while the distinction will make unique grille version, wheel design and appropriate badging.

Interior, features:

Interior of the CR-V hybrid will also be the familiar form from the current CR-V. The model will have a high dose of interior style but will win with the practicality and functionality. A number of clever compartments will be available inside the cabin and the CR-V has well-placed controls as well.

The model will come with the responsive infotainment system but will also be equipped with the array of the safety equipment. The equipment list will include systems like adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Powertrain

There is no doubt, that 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid (or another model year version) will use Honda’s two-motor system. Like the Accord Hybrid sedan, the CR-V SUV should get the Atkinson cycle 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the combination with the electric motors and battery pack. The power and performance of the system haven’t appeared yet but the same setup makes 212 hp and manages 47 combined fuel economy in the Acord sedan.

The CR-V Hybrid will likely be the most powerful CR-V and the most efficient as well. It will beat easily 30 mpg combined of the turbo-4 powertrain and will also challenge the rivals of RAV4 Hybrid, Rogue Hybrid, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Arrival, Price

No confirmation of the arrival of the CR-V Hybrid yet from Honda. The reports claim the model could arrive late in the 2019 model year or more likely wait for the refresh and the 2020 version.

The price of the possible 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid is also unknown. The base model of the current CR-V starts from around $25, 000 and the hybrid would close to the 30k range likely.

2019 Lexus RX 350: Design, Equipment, Price

2019 Lexus RX 350

2019 Lexus RX 350: Design

With its sharp and chiseled look, the RX 350 is definitely in focus despite some might find its look too much aggressive. In the focus is surely its massive spindle grille but sharp angles spreading over its body as well. The floating roofline also fits nicely to its design and F package comes with sportier styling.

The 2019 Lexus RX 350 will keep the familiar styling theme and the RX L model will also be there with 4.3 inches longer body and seats for seven but with the same design theme. Buyers will also pick between 18- inch alloy wheels and larger 20-inch units on the sportier version.

2020 Subaru Forester: Specs, Design, Price

The compact Subaru Forester crossover SUV is one in the lineup of brand’s recently redesigned high-riding models. The 2019 Forester adopted the Subaru Global platform and also improved the interior comfort and utility. A more powerful engine and above average off-road capability should also be the selling point of the model but the newest Forester is also loaded with the latest tech and safety features.

The 2020 Subaru Forester will continue to benefit on the recent redesign and there won’t be major upgrades for several years. Subaru will revisit the equipment offer and add several new options like the new body colors and wheel design. The trim range will likely stay the same.

2020 Subaru Forester

2020 Subaru Forester: Design

To the second model year of its fifth-generation version, the 2020 Subaru Forester will enter with the minimal changes in all aspects. The thorough redesign last year brought structural and visual upgrades although the latter is not the large departure from the previous version.

The newest generation Forester is based on the Subaru Global platform which is also the foundation of other models like the Impreza, Crosstrek and Ascent.  The model is also set on the slightly longer wheelbase which measures 105.1 inches in contrast to 103.9 inches in the previous generation version. The benefit is the increased interior and cargo capacity.

The styling of the model is angular and with brand’s latest styling elements. The model has a brand’s signature grille style and lighting units with the C-shaped pattern. The 8.7 inches of the ground clearance and rugged sheet metal give it strong presence but the Forester isn’t surely among the prettiest crossovers in the market.

Interior, equipment:

The 2020 Forester will appear with the same design and largely unchanged equipment offer. The model will provide a very comfortable rear row and up to 76.1 cubes for the cargo space.

The model will also come with the latest tech features and upgrades. Every model will offer a modern infotainment system with the Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. The Eye Sigh driver assists package will also be the part of all versions. The package covers systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and emergency braking. The higher trim safety upgrades will include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic, lane change assist and rear automatic braking.

2020 Subaru Forester

2020 Subaru Forester: Performance

The fifth generation Forester changed to the Global Subaru platform which provides more composed ride while significant ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive system ensure above the average off-road talent.

The model also discontinued the turbo-4 engine from the previous version in favor to the new, slightly more powerful 2.5-liter boxer engine. This engine employs higher compression, active valve control and direct injection. The 2020 Subaru Forester will also get this engine and power and torque from it of 182 hp and 176 lb-ft. In the combination with the engine and all-wheel traction will be the continuously variable transmission.

The Forester will also provide among the best fuel economy among the all-wheel-drive versions with the gasoline engine. The model should return 26 mpg city and 33 highways.

2020 Subaru Forester: Release, Price

The 2020 Subaru Forester will be available in late 2019. The base Forester will start at around $24, 000 and move to the mid-30, 000 in the best-equipped version.

Acura’s best-selling model RDX entered the third generation as the 2019 version and the model arrived with more style, turbocharged power, torque vectoring all-wheel drive, high-class interior and much more. 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.

So, after the comprehensive redesign, we shouldn’t expect much to change with the arrival of the next 2020 Acura RDX version. The model will bring new color options and probably more standard features.

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.

As for the 2020 Acura RDX, things will stay the same from the visual point of view. What we sound expect are new shades and wheel options.

Interior, Equipment:

The high-end interior is also the strong side of the RDX. The model combines the dynamic dash design and specific controls and dials with the premium, contrasting materials and nice wood, aluminum and other accents. The RDX also offers a max cargo capacity of 58,9 cubes and with the rear seats functional up to 29, 5 cubes.

The 2020 Acura RDX will return with the willing 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 272 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque at disposal. The engine will work in the conjunction with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

The model will offer the all-wheel drive which can transfer up to 70 percent of the torque to the rear wheels. Improving the handling will also be the torque vectoring which can route power left to right up to 100 percent. Another level of the drive control will provide the Integrated Dynamics System with the different modes for the particular road conditions.

As for the fuel efficiency, the RDX will be around 24 mpg combined regardless of the two- or all-wheel drive.

2020 Acura RDX: Release, Price

The 2020 Acura RDX will hit the market in the second half of 2019. The price will likely go slightly up from the current base $37, 300 and climb over $48, 000 with the most of options loaded.

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Design, Specs, Price

The iconic, off-road capable Mercedes G-Class has finally
got the first full redesign in the decades-long run. The new version arrived as
the 2019 model and while Mercedes retained the familiar presence of the model
the comprehensive upgrades in all aspects brought the model to the modern era.

The newest G-Wagen is larger and got serious interior
updates. The model switched also to the new underpinning for more ride comfort
on the paved roads while Mercers claims also enhanced off-road capability.  The new-gen G-Class has also the new
transmission unit and two versions of the twin-turbo V-8 engine provide
enormous power and torque in the base and AMG-branded versions. The unique SUV
employs also plenty of other hardcore hardware and systems for the off-road
challenges but equips also modern tech features.

For the new model year and the 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class version, the brand won’t come up many changes. The new version could appear with the unique exterior and interior pieces and Mercedes will likely offer the new body color and package options.

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Design

Mercedes redesigned the G-Wagen model from the ground up but hasn’t gambled with the look of the model. The new generation version remains the tall, slab-sided SUV but the model has more elegant lines and bears the new grille version in the combination with the new headlights.

More importantly, the body-on-frame SUV gained some
structural upgrades and while 154 pounds lighter the model has a 34 percent
stiffer frame.  With the new
double-wishbone, independent suspension replaced the solid front axle the model
provides also better on-road comfort while won’t lack the off-road capacity.

For the 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class version, Mercedes will
likely offer new body shades and new special edition version. There won’t be significant
changes after the recent redesign.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the boxy SUV is a huge step forward in
both comforts and modern tech availability. The new generation G-Glass is both
longer and wider and gained 5.9 inches of additional rear seat legroom.

Mercedes equipped also the military-DNA SUV with the premium
comfort and tech features and the next version won’t bring many new details in
that regard.

The off-road adventures and the everyday ride will be easier thanks to the available leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, multi-contour seats with massage capability, a Burmester premium sound system etc. The model will also get a standard infotainment system with a 12.4-inch touchscreen and optional digital gauge cluster. There will also be the modern safety systems like the lane keeping control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, park assist, etc.

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Performance

For the power delivery, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will
employ two bi-turbo V-8 engines. The base 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine will
provide 416 horsepower and torque of 450 lb-ft. Teamed with the 9-speed
automatic transmission and four-wheel drive, this version will hit 60 mph in
5.8 seconds.

The AMG G63 version will boost the performance of the V-8
engine to 577 hp and peak torque of 627 lb-ft. With that potential under the
hood, this version will reduce the 60mph-run to 4.4 seconds.

With the independent front suspension, electric power
steering and available adaptive damping, the G-Class SUV will also ride well on
the paved roads. For the off-road adventure, the model will have the help of
the 4Matic all-wheel drive with low-range gearing and three locking
differentials. Different driving modes and impressive ride height combined with
high approach and departure angles will also provide skills for the hardcore
off-roading.

2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Arrival, Price

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will hit the market in late
2019. The price will start again at around $125, 000.

2020 Honda HR-V: News, Design, Specs, Price

Honda’s subcompact HR-V crossover was one of the first
contenders in this rapidly growing class and this well-to-ride and
flexible-interior model still remains in the top of the recommendation list.
The brand has been overhauling the crossover SUV range and we saw recently the
all-new Honda Passport and refreshed Pilot SUV. The HR-V received also the
number of updates for the 2019 version including the front and rear styling
refresh, updated interior and tech features and the addition of new Sport and
Touring trims.

The next 2020 Honda HR-V won’t bring substantial design upgrades and the model also has the up-to-date tech and safety equipment. Still, Honda will likely offer the new body color options and possibly the new exterior theme.  Honda promised also the hybridization of the entire light truck range but there are no hints yet that the next version will get this option. The addition of the turbocharged gasoline mill is among the possibilities as some reports claim as well.

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Design

The recently refreshed, Honda Fit-related, subcompact
crossover will continue to benefit from the last year styling updates and there
won’t be substantial design or structural changes until the next full redesign.
Buyers should expect the next 2020 Honda HR-V with the new color options and
wheel styles. 

The smallest in Honda SUV range model has an attractive
appearance with the nicely defined body lines. 
The model combines actually the crossover and coupe styling cues which
seems like the good combination from the visual perspective. The HR-V has
up-to-date grille style and the new design of the headlights. Honda refreshed

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Powertrains

The current Honda HR-V goes on sale in the US with the
single, naturally aspirated engine. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline mill
makes 141 horsepower and torque 121 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Honda HR-V
will also return this engine in the combination with the continuously variable
transmission and dilemma between the front- and all-wheel drive. With this
power unit, the model will provide a 28/34 mpg city-highway fuel economy with
the 2WD. The 4WD versions will return 27/31 mpg.

The big news for the 2020 version could be the inclusion of
the turbocharged four-cylinder engine as per the latest reports. A 1.5-liter
turbo-4 engine with the power around 174 hp like in the Civic hatch would be
the great upgrade for the subcompact crossover but Honda hasn’t yet confirmed
this possibility. The HR-V should also get the hybrid powertrain but it still
remains unclear when Honda will install it.
