Improved fuel economy is a priority for the redesigned Jeep Wrangler and a hybrid powertrain may be in the cards to make it happen.
'You have the potential for hybrid powertrains in the future,' said Jeep boss Mike Manley. 'For those people who use the Wrangler, the most important thing is the initial torque and the crawl ratio. With an electric motor you have the most torque available and with the right combination of transmission and gear ratios you can create incredible crawl ratios.'
When the new Wrangler arrives, it is likely to use many different technologies to accomplish its goals of improving fuel economy and on-road comfort while staying true to its off-road roots. An aluminum body, eight-speed transmission and diesel engine have all been mentioned as possibilities for the upcoming Jeep icon, while Manly even proposed carbon fiber as an option for the new Wrangler.
You might have heard that the Detroit economy is on the upswing and so is the North American International Auto Show.
You could say the COBO Center just got a mid-cycle refresh and as you can guess it’s bigger, better and more efficient (sort of) than ever before. But time is short and what you really care about is inside, so what are you waiting for?
Two new Hyundai Sonata models are being introduced for 2016 and not surprisingly both focus on efficiency.
Marking its return this year is the hybrid model, while an all-new Sonata plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) has joined the family.
This is the first plug-in vehicle Hyundai has ever offered. The Sonata is expected to get 22 miles of electric-only power off a single charge from its 9.8 kWh battery pack. Using a stage-two charger the Sonata should be able to replenish its electrical goodness in around two-and-a-half hours.
