2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring

2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring

Los Angeles Auto ShowOn the heels of Lincoln’s Aviator Grand Touring hybrid comes its smaller brother, the Corsair Grand Touring, which first sees the light of day at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Although a plug-in hybrid like its bigger brother, the Corsair Grand Touring’s powertrain and AWD system differs in that a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder mates with two electric motors and a CVT automatic transmission to power the front wheels, while a separate electric motor powers the rear wheels, a combination that’s estimated to provide a total of 266 horsepower.

2020 Land Rover Defender

2020 Land Rover Defender 90

Los Angeles Auto ShowThe 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show marks the North American debut of the 2020 Land Rover Defender, after the vehicle’s world debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show earlier this year. The original Land Rover Defender was a rugged, tradition-bound off-road vehicle that was developed in the early 1980s and last sold in the U.S. market in 1997. The 2020 Defender is a thorough re-imagining of the original; it maintains the boxy basic profile, but adds smoother, more refined styling and a host of up-to-date technology features.

Los Angeles Auto ShowWell, it’s official now… the Lexus LC 500 grand touring coupe will be joined by a convertible version for 2021.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

Los Angeles Auto Show Ford officially unveiled its all-new pure-electric sporty crossover—the 2021 Mustang Mach E—Sunday night in Los Angeles, less than a week before the kick-off of the 2019 L.A. Auto Show. It’s remarkable enough that this genre-smashing new vehicle is Ford’s first purpose-built, regular-production, pure-electric vehicle (with no equivalent gasoline-engine version). What’s almost as noteworthy is that Ford has elected to use the name of its beloved pony car, and make this new EV part of the Mustang “family.”

2020 Kia Soul

LA-Auto-Show-LogoKia unveiled the all-new third generation of its spunky, boxy subcompact hatchback at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The redesigned 2020 Kia Soul maintains the signature “tall box” profile of its predecessors, but its styling cues—particularly its aggressive front and rear fasciae—are a bit less “cute” than before.
