Plans of company Infiniti for the next years are opened!

Pushful persons from English edition Autocar have reconnoitered plans Infiniti — luxury division of company Nissan. Somebody has whispered to journalists on an ear, which models will be deduced on the market till 2015. Something is predicted, but there are also surprises. For example, revival of flagman sedan Q which has given three nice generations, then disappear. Its reincarnation will occur in 2012, and it it will be appreciable to surpass the ancestor in dimensions.

Leading models of the German three and, certainly, Lexus LS become competitors «Q». Predictably, there will be versions both with rear, and with an all wheel drive. The following generation of the smallest model of the company — a sedan of series G the same year will come. It will be followed by a coupe and a cabriolet. And, we will note, some representatives of young change will have also diesel engines.

Much earlier, on the next motor-show in Geneva, will thunder the next generation of sedan M. It is known that the successor will manage at least two engines, namely the newest three litre turbodiesel and petrol "six" in volume of 3,7 l — that which now put in a sedan and coupe G37. And one year later will exhaust also the hybrid version «M» . At last, in 2011 off-road car Infiniti which will replace a present Nissan Armada — model QX56 will be issued. The car will keep the giant sizes and remains at the three rows of seats, however will get advanced system of an all wheel drive and more powerful motor.

In 2015 in the market there will be one more seven-seater off road car. Whether it goes on change present FX, whether will be absolutely new model. A little that is clear and concerning a compact electromobile of a golf class. It debuts not earlier, than on the secondary market ten years' crossovers FX will get.

Ford Explorer at last will receive modern motors

Ford in the beginning of 2008 have let out future generation of off-road car Explorer. It has been told that manufacture will transfer from the State of Kentucky to Chicago. Has not passed also year as more serious information — about motors has appeared in time.

Updated moters will be modern. Under the informal information, it is two engines of family EcoBoost — 275-strong «bi-turbo4» 2.0 (380 N•m) and overcharge "six" 3.5 with 340 «h.p» (460 N•m). As the second element of a sheaf six-step "automatic machine" will serve.

Overdue use of the current technologies will reduce fuel consumption to 30 % and, certainly, will lower level of blowout СО2. Means, the giant Explorer will have a chance of a survival. Excellent news. And if "researcher" inherits appearance from concept Explorer America, it will be even better.

The studio familiar to us on extravagant car body works, will be engaged in that well is able. At the heart of model Stinger lies Corvette ZR1 with "compressor" 638-strong motor V8 LS9, but instead of a standard body the American designers model carbon torso under well-known Stingray with its brawny arches and a family rear screen.

Personally cars still nobody saw, but the booking is begun. By words californians on creation of one coupe or cabriolet Stinger 800 hours are required. In this time seats will fit a quality leather, with it will finish a front panel and doors, and floors will decorate with carpets. The prices are not named yet, but, apparently, in the USA for Corvette ZR1 in "suit" Stingray will ask about $200 thousand.

As it's known, one of models will be precisely constructed on base Fiat hatchback Grande Punto. But another is more interesting. In America the tiny ridiculous machine of mark Jeep will appear. It prepare to construct on the basis of the all-wheel drive version of babe Panda and to exhaust on the market in 2011. The model is necessary to Jeep obviously not for laughter. The matter is that in 1973 when States worried fuel crisis, the country authorities had been passed the law on average fuel consumption (CAFE). Cars on the American roads should not spend more than 8,6 l for 100 km, and those manufacturers, whose cars do not keep within these frameworks, severely fine.

And in 2020 of requirement CAFE only will become tougher — level of the maximum expense will lower to 6,7 l on one hundred. Such asceticism is not inherent in any Jeep. And, except that, tastes of Americans vary, the share of huge off-road cars and pickups in the market is reduced, and small machines for quite some time now do not cause in local public of an impetuous laughter.

China continue to use old Citroen ZX!

Company Dongfeng earns that exhausts in the homeland concern PSA models, and also companies Honda, KIA and Nissan. In turn, eminent manufacturers allow Chineses to adjust machines familiar to Europeans to tastes of local residents and, say, to alter Peugeot 206 in Citroen C2. And at times kindness of Frenchmen comes so far that those allow Dunfenu to use the platforms. For example, base of the veteran Citroen ZX, which manufacture has been curtailed into France still eleven years ago. However the car till now assemble in the country of the won Asian sotsial-capitalism and after easy change face sells as Citroen C-Elysee. And now on its platform bright Chineses have decided to create own model with an original stuffing. Name is- Dongfeng Fengshen.

Buick and Jaguar became the first!

The first place in the rating of reliability from J.   D. Power and Associates have occupied marks Buick and Jaguar, and the former leader, Japanese Lexus which held the positions last 14 years, became the second. Rating Vehicle Dependability Survey from organisation J.   D. Power and Associates sets as the purpose to define, how much reliable this cars after three years of their work. Such term is chosen not casually, after all on the basis of many probes and opinions three years of operation are indicative in respect of reliability of this or that car. Hence, the rating presented recently from J.   D. Power and Associates concerns a car, exhausted in 2006 At definition of the most reliable cars, up to October of last year J.   D. Power interviewed 46 000 automobile owners who within three years maintained the cars. The questionnaire provided 202 signs of malfunctions of cars, and the estimation of reliability was spent on 19 cores to indicators. According to totals, drivers of models Buick and Jaguar have noted in a questionnaire of 122 problems at the rate on 100 cars of mark. The indicator of problematical character Lexus has made 126 breakages on 100 cars. The third position has occupied Toyota: 129 complaints/100 of a car. Despite a victory of Americans, the Japanese brand Toyota has won first place in five nominations of rating J.   D. Power thanks to the models Highlander, Sequoia, Prius, Solara and Tundra. To the second in the general offset became Lexus: leading places in four nominations (model S 330, GX 470, LS 430 and SC 430). According to many analysts, a rating from J.   D. Power and Associates in many respects defines the final decision which is done by the American buyer in the course of a car choice. David Sardzhent specifies that «in a present economic context buyers prefer to postpone for the greatest possible term purchase of the new car instead of the old. And if in 2006 the American automobile owners changed the car on the average later 65 months from the moment of its purchase in 2009 this term has increased till 73 months». Thus, the indicator of reliability of the car became important now more than ever.

Destiny Lamborghini Estoque under the threat!

The principal cause of such decision for anybody did not become unexpectedness is the crisis which has burst in world car industry, and also the uncertain future of development of the branch. It would Seem, strange to hear such statement from Lamborghini. After all last year the company has finished with a high indicator for itself: in the world market 2430 units of cars of this mark have been sold. In comparison with 2007 growth of volumes of realisation has made 6 %. On the 2009 which have passed in the beginning Detroit autoshow, chief executive Lamborghini Stephen Vinkelmann has declared that the company intends and to represent new versions of the models annually henceforth. However the beginning of this year has shown that crisis has not avoided also this manufacturer super cars. Reduction in demand for company Lamborghini production has forced its management to lower volumes of release of cars, and also to reduce a labour shift at the enterprise. The second reason which forces Lamborghini to postpone indefinitely realisation of the serial version of model Estoque is an intention of the company to concentrate the efforts to development of already existing lineup. Work in this area will be directed on improvement of such indicators, as weight of cars and conformity of their engines to norms of blowout СО2. It is necessary to notice that the given decision completely echoes the instruction accepted by concern Volkswagen AG which structure includes company Lamborghini.
