New Car Art

2011 Ford Explorer

The 2011 Ford Explorer is a revolutionary departure for the traditional Explorer, built for two decades, and at one time the most popular SUV in the world.

The Explorer has left its truck-based roots and is now built on a car platform, the same platform as the Taurus.

2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport

After just a year on the market, the Suzuki Kizashi is getting a minor facelift.

The Kizashi has earned praise from a great many automotive journalists as a stylish, well-built sedan that falls in-between compact and a mid-size.

2011 Jaguar XJ

Inside and out, the 2011 Jaguar XJ is a masterpiece, a design of the year, perhaps a design of the decade.

2011 Ford Edge

The Ford Edge has become, well, edgier for 2011.

The Edge got an exterior facelift maintaining it's athletic look. Likewise, the interior has been reinvigorated for a more upscale, modern look.

2011 Kia Sportage

The 2011 Kia Sportage compact crossover boasts more refinement, power, fuel efficiency, technology and convenience features than its predecessor. And it has cutting-edge good looks.

2011 Audi A8

The all-new 2011 Audi A8 is loaded with cutting edge performance, technology and comfort.

While the newest Audi flagship sports numerous ultra-luxury touches, the new design is not a radical departure from the previous third generation A8.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

While the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado is nearly identical to the 2010 version on the outside, Chevrolet has done a lot of work underneath including adding a stronger frame and suspension, a new diesel engine with braking and a number of electronic aids.

2011 Honda Odyssey

The new Honda Odyssey minivan is more aerodynamic than the previous version thanks to several styling tweaks including a more rakish windshield.

But the overall design is controversial with the rear third of the vehicle mismatched with the front two-thirds giving the minvan the look of two vehicles welded together. The uneven side panels create a "lightening bolt" affect that actually started winning us over before our seven-day stint ended.

2011 Honda Accord

In an effort to give its current model Accord a fresher look, Honda has redesigned the grille, front bumper, rear decklid, and enhanced the brake lights. The Accord is in its fourth year of a typical five-year cycle.

2011 Buick Regal

This is not your father's Regal. This is not your grandfather's Regal.

When thinking of Buick Regal in 2011 terms, you must clean the memory slate. This is another in the NEW Buick lineup, a sports sedan in the image of the European Open Insignia. The Insignia won the prestigious European Car of the Year Award last year and now the car is available to American drivers in the form of a Buick.
