Top down, open road, it’s a great time to think all things cars. Even if you’re not in the market for a new car, summer time is always the right time to check out the options. There’s always something new and interesting going on in the world of cars, but especially in the summer time. It’s a great time to test drive a new set of wheels or to visit an old vintage car show. And, there’s always an interesting tidbit, anniversary, controversy or piece of technology to keep us entertained, as well. What makes it probably most enjoyable are the new cars coming and the test drives along with the sneak peeks.
Happy 75th Anniversary to Jeep
In 1941, the Willys-Overland Motor Company was hired to create the Willys MB. This vehicle would become synonymous with the World War II vehicle that helped save the day.
What better way to celebrate summer and a 75th anniversary than to create a new model for future inclusion of consideration for becoming an iconic model. The Wrangler Unlimited pays homage to the original Jeep we all know and love. If you’re seeking to feel the freedom of the open road, what better way than to do it in a Jeep. Olive green never look so good.
2016 Nissan Titan XD 5.6L
If the Jeep is not your style but you are still looking for something tough and rugged to do the dirty work of all summer has to offer, then maybe the 2016 Nissan Titan XD 5.6L will do the trick. The Titan XD is in between a half-ton and full-on heavy duty model. Starting out of the gate with a 5.0 liter Cummins, the gasoline V-8 will make its debut later on in the year. Whether you need to haul your jet-ski or load up the camping gear, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD might be the vehicle you see yourself driving in next year.
2016 BMW M4 Competition
For some reason, the summer seems to dictate the type of vehicle we drive or purchase. Road trips need the top down, rugged terrain needs the Jeep model and the host of summertime water activities require a good pickup truck. However for some, the need for speed is what drives them to look at what’s coming down the road. That’s where the competition package for the BMW M4 comes in handy. With a little more horsepower and a bit more oomph, you might find yourself fulfilling your need for speed on a long, hot summer day driving down a winding road. With the temptation of 19 more horsepower bringing the total to 444, you might just find yourself dreaming about what’s in your future for next summer 2017.
