A New Technology for the New 'Liberty'

The 2008 Liberty debuted at the 2007 New York International Auto Show. It went into production on July 24, 2007. It got across a complete redesign which resulted in a more boxy and off-road look. The 2008 Liberty is a 4-door, 5-passenger sport-utility, available in 4 trims, ranging from the Sport 4X2 to the Limited 4X4. This more masculine Jeep Liberty has some similarity in terms of architecture and exterior package with the Dodge Nitro. It is because; the new Jeep was produced at the Toledo North Assembly Plant (TNAP) in Toledo, Ohio, alongside the Dodge Nitro.

“The Sport 4X2 is equipped with a standard 3.7-liter, V6, 210-horsepower engine that achieves 16-mpg in the city and 22-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard, and a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is optional. The Limited 4X4 is equipped with a standard 3.7-liter, V6, 210-horsepower engine that achieves 15-mpg in the city and 21-mpg on the highway. A 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard.”

It features an Industry-exclusive Sky Slider full-open canvas roof which brings open-air experience to this mid-size SUV. It’s also well noticed that it has an improved seat comfort and an added interior space. “The 2008 Jeep Liberty offers the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System™ a completely integrated audio, navigation, entertainment and hands-free communication system.”

It looks like the old Cherokee’s so I find nothing wrong with its styling. Although I must say that it looks more decent than any current Jeep. For the money this will be a good SUV. Everybody will surely enjoy the new entertainment features.

The Soul is power-driven and loaded with a 2.0L 4-cyl that controls the front wheels. In addition to taking the automobile to the United States, Kia, however, is also preparing on bringing up or launching the car to the Chinese society in coming December 2009.


Moreover, Kia is going to attempt to get a page out of Scion's name by letting buyers and costumers the skill to modify their latest ride. Its bold model should positively stand out as the production automobile is projected to look really close to the theory. Let's just hope that Kia Motors is also preparing on bringing a production edition of the KOUP concept that was exposed in New York.

Acura Moves It Up To the Highest Level

The 2009 Acura TSX pushing its name to reach its mark as a top-notch sports sedan

In Montreal - If sales outline are any suggestion, The Acura has a victor on its name with the TL models.

The image “http://reviews.carreview.com/files/2008/02/2009_acura_tsx_med.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Last February 2008, the auto manufacturer put up for sale for almost 437 TL’s. While that might not sound like more are released, the total calculation is an 86-per-cent increase over the same month past 2007 production. For the month of March it was moreover a better month for the TL, with total sales up 25 percent from similar period a year ago. After handling one of the vehicles, it's very simple to appreciate its recognition. While the latest 2008 TL is a good car, the improved Type- my friend tested acquires the car to a complete new level.

Very true, I can say that the Acura TSX is well-mannered and isn't troubled with torque steer, but it doesn't quite dig your motor rolling on a winding two-lane highway for the reason that it lacks very similar accurate sense as a BMW 3 Series. The engine is more fascinating when you drove at the six-speed manual, very delightful, however, This TSX reproduction is just as good in the ride plus handling responsibility as its front-wheel-drive design allows.

Although, if you are not thinking and dedicated to each corner and financial is a main issue, then, maybe, a comfy and well-outfitted TSX can be the answer to compete a new BMW 323i.

Even though Acura has not made public pricing details, the clue was this production will comes up between $30,000 to $40,000 ranges.
