The Friday Five:The Porsche Eyes 3-Row Ute, Dodge Hellcat Demise, and GM Heated Seat Comeback Edition
This Thanksgiving week may be a short one from a work perspective, but there’s no shortage of news to keep your automotive bellies satiated. For example, we know the used-car market is as volatile and in low supply as the new-car inventories. So, consider the results of the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards as a helpful guide in deciding whether that used vehicle you’re eyeing to buy (or sell) is worth it.
The next-generation global Ford Ranger also debuted this week. Although not arriving in the U.S. just yet, the new truck provides a good sense of what to expect come 2023. Plus, Genesis unveiled the battery-electric version of its all-new GV70, and Nissan gave an update on the 2022 Altima, including adding a new Midnight Edition.
Our latest reviews showcase the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS and 2022 Volkswagen Golf R, while the Honda Odyssey tangos with the Toyota Sienna in a minivan comparison. We also have an explainer on the Nissan VC-Turbo engine, which is found in the Altima and Rogue and several Infiniti models.
But that’s not everything that was happening in the automotive space.
