Don’t Call it a Wagon: 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake Coming to America

Or actually? Call it a wagon. Because whatever you call it, the 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is beautiful. And most importantly — unlike upscale wagon models from BMW and Audi — it’s coming to America. Right now, there’s not a lot of info on exactly what engines will be available, so we’re looking at the sedan for clues on what we can expect to find under the hood of the Sportbrake. Sadly, 2015 was the last year the 470-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 was an option. The current XF is available with everything from a 180-horsepower…

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV — Prepare to Get Electrified

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV completed the electric vehicle picture that its predecessor—the Chevrolet Spark EV—started. The first EV offered by Chevrolet, and one of the first to debut among all manufacturers—come to think of it—actually goes way back to the 1990s and was as good a self-titled offering as there ever was, the EV1. The Chevy Bolt has managed to tack on an additional 156 miles of range—up to 238 miles now from the Spark’s original 82 miles. Not to create unnecessary confusion, but Chevy has yet another plug-in…
