PostHeaderIcon Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia

Introduced in 2013 as the company’s first true-blue sports car in decades, the Alfa Romeo 4C soldiered on into 2019 with almost no upgrades. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the Italian company launched the 4C Spider Italia, a limited-edition roadster with a handful of extra features. Although it doesn’t stray far from the regular model, it confirms that the 4C Spider will remain in production for the 2020 model year.

With the Coupe discontinued at the end of 2018, the Spider remains in dealerships for at least one more year, but the Italia is far from special. Finished in an exclusive paint and fitted with custom graphics and badges, it’s just a poor attempt to keep this bare-bones sports car appealing among newer products. Is it worth getting one? Let’s find out below.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition

Thirty years have passed since Mazda gave the world the MX-5 Miata, and to commemorate that occasion, the Japanese automaker introduced the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
Limited to just 3,000 units, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition is available in both soft-top and retractable hardtop RF trims. The exclusive touches are mostly cosmetic in nature, though that’s expected considering that Mazda followed the same blueprint when it launched the 10th Anniversary Miata in 1999, the 20th Anniversary Miata in 2009, and the 25th Anniversary Miata in 2014. The limited edition MX-5 starts at $34,995. Unfortunately, the time to get one has passed; all 500 allocations of the MX-5 Anniversary Edition in the U.S. were scooped up a mere four hours after Mazda opened the order books.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Gladiator By Katzkin Leather

After more than 30 years on the shelves, the almighty Jeep Gladiator returned to the auto scene at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Less than a few months later, we now have one of the first custom jobs for the Gladiator courtesy of a company known for making some of the best leather products for car interiors in the market. This, ladies and gentlemen, is Katzkin Leather’s interpretation of the Jeep Gladiator, and it’s an absolute doozy. Comprised mostly of upgrades to the truck’s interior, Katzkin Leather’s work on the Gladiator’s cabin is a visual showcase of the company’s new products. The upholstery package is one of the many options that Katzkin is offering through Mopar, complementing the menu of accessories and options that are already available for Jeep’s returning conqueror. Katzkin’s show of force on the Gladiator was on full display at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Jetta GLI

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is the latest performance-oriented version of the compact sedan. It’s based on the seventh-generation Jetta what was unveiled for the 2019 model year, and just like its predecessor, it rides on underpinnings borrowed from the Volkswagen Golf GTI. More aggressive than ever design-wise, the 2020 Jetta GLI is also the most powerful GLI ever built. Powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, it comes with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. For the first time ever, the Jetta GLI comes close to the Subaru WRX, although it still doesn’t have an all-wheel-drive system. Find out more about the new Jetta GLI in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon The New 7.3-Liter V-8 Gasser In the 2020 Ford Super Duty Is a Combination of Old School and New School

Boosted, small-displacement engines are all the rage these days, but Ford is breaking the mold by offering up a brand-new, naturally aspirated, 7.3-liter V-8 with the 2020 Super Duty. Built from the ground up and revealed for the first time at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the 7.3-liter gasser was designed specifically to meet the demands of Super Duty customers, rather than as an evolution of a pre-existing platform. A lot of it is old-school in its approach, with huge displacement, pushrods, and an iron block, but interestingly, Ford managed to massage in a number of forward-looking details as well. Read on for the lowdown on the latest gasser from the Blue Oval.

PostHeaderIcon SUVs, Crossovers, and Trucks Reign Supreme in Chicago, Sports Cars Are An Afterthought

Welp, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show is now coming to a close, and as the final sheet pulls are done, and the journalists make way for the auto-eager public, it’s a good time to take stock of what went down. Out of all the debuts that dropped in The Windy City, the tall and torquey seem to be the order of the day, while the quick corner-carvers are pushed to the side.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Silverado HD

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD made its debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show as part of the third-generation lineage of Silverado-badged trucks. It follows in the footsteps of the Silverado 1500 revealed in 2018 in terms of technology and interior design, but features a unique exterior and enhanced capability. Both 2500 and 3500 versions are offered on the platform described as “the strongest, most capable ever.”

Although it unveiled the HD’s design in late 2018, Chevrolet kept most of the important details in the vault. Now that it made its public debut, We know that it will be sold with a two-engine lineup and a new transmission. It’s also available in five trim levels, one of which is new, and 22 cab, bed, chassis, and driveline configurations. As of this writing, the Silverado HD offers best-in-class towing capability, but the upcoming Ford Super Duty, also set to break cover in Chicago, might take over with a better rating. We’ll be back with an update as soon as we know.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is Good News, Bad News at the Same Time

If you’re a fan of performance cars, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show must be really boring to you. Packed with trucks and special-edition SUVs, you have to dig deep to find some cool sports car in there, and most of them are actually classics. There is an exception worth checking out though: the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia.

A limited-series, special edition version of the familiar roadster, the 4C Spider Italia comes with good and bad news for both Alfa Romeo and sports car enthusiasts.

PostHeaderIcon How Ford Crashed Chevy’s Heavy Duty Truck Party in Chicago

Following a preview in December 2018, Chevrolet introduced the all-new Silverado HD truck at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show,bragging about its new gasoline engine, 10-speed transmission for the diesel mill, and segment-leading towing capability. But Ford joined in with a revised version of the F-Series Super Duty and crashed GM’s party.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia Is the Best-Looking Debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, But Is It Too Little Too Late?

First introduced way back in 2013, the 4C was the first mass-produced Alfa Romeo vehicle for the North American market in the 21st century. And what a comeback – this thing ticks all the boxes when it comes to driving nirvana. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the 4C is lightweight, while the exterior dimensions are compact, which combine with the mid-engine drivetrain package to make for some seriously impressive driving dynamics. We love it, but in the six years since its debut, not much has changed, and sales have taken a hit. Now, Alfa is offering a special edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show that’s leaving us wondering – is it too little too late?

PostHeaderIcon 5 Reasons the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Needs a GTI Badge ASAP

The Jetta GLI returned to the market at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, and needless to say, it’s cooler than it has ever been. Although the previous model was nothing to sneeze at, the seventh-gen GLI is a proper four-door GTI. The only thing that bugs is that Volkswagen didn’t drop the “GLI” badge for a proper Jetta GTI name. And here’s why I think it should have.

PostHeaderIcon The Mopar-modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Has Everything That You Can Ask For In A Truck

Mopar has laid its hands on the 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty and has given prospective buyers one more reason to buy this truck as soon as it launches. Actually 170 reasons. Mopar debuted the modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty truck at the Chicago Auto Show and results are nothing but phenomenal. Mopar offers 170 aftermarket parts for the truck, ranging from lights, to trailer cameras. You name it, and Mopar has it.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Sold Out in Just Four Hours

The iconic Mazda MX-5 Miata turns 30 in 2019 and the Japanese automaker celebrates the achievement with a 30th Anniversary model at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. The roadster fitted with a few extra features went on sale during the show and all 500 units were sold out after only four hours!

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Adds Extra Luxury and Mild-Hybrid Power to the Off-Roader Segment

Compact luxury crossovers are all the rage these days, and Land Rover is taking advantage with a second generation for the Range Rover Evoque. The updated premium high-rider just dropped onto U.S. shores at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, and it’s looking to mate green tech and top-shelf amenities with rough-stuff capability.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is a final attempt from Alfa to stay relevant

Alfa Romeo showed up at the Chicago Auto Show with the 4C Spider Italia Edition. It’s the same 4C Alfa’s been selling in the U.S. for almost half a decade already, but the novelty is you can now have it in this nice Misano Blue Metallic paint job if you pay $5,000 more on top of the $1,595 destination tax.

The Alfa Romeo 4C was the second car Alfa Romeo brought Stateside after selling almost 100 of its wonderful 8C sports car in both coupe and roadster guise. The 4C is a much more compact version but, in true Alfa tradition, it looks really well and it drives well too. The issue is that the Italians haven’t really been all that interested in trying to refresh the car and, now, the 4C is a pretty but overpriced car that desperately needs a replacement worth of sharing the garage with the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Quadrifoglio.

PostHeaderIcon The 1990 Acura NSX Showed up to the Chicago Auto Show to Celebrate its 30th Anniversary Next to the 2019 Acura NSX

The second-generation Acura NSX may be a modern marvel of technology, but it hasn’t made any headlines in recent months. Thankfully, the original NSX showed up at the Chicago Auto Show to celebrate 30 years since its official introduction.

PostHeaderIcon One of Dodge’s Most Iconic Paint Colors is Making a Comeback at the Chicago Auto Show

Don’t expect to see a new Dodge Challenger or even a new Dodge Charger at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. But Dodge is bringing a Challenger and a Charger to the Windy City anyway; it’s just that the headline act isn’t either of the two performance cars. It’s the paint they’re wearing, which Dodge calls “Sublime.” The importance of the paint scheme shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who remember it. The Sublime finish is arguably one of the most iconic paint colors that the Challenger and Charger have worn in their respective lifetimes. 2015 was the last time Dodge offered it on the Challenger, and we haven’t seen the Charger sport it since 2007. Now it’s back, and, according to Dodge, it’s available as a factory color option across the entire range of Challenger and Charger models.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Ford Explorer gets Yakima accessories for outdoorsy types

Buying an SUV you also buy into the idea of a more outdoorsy style and Ford is promoting that idea with the new dealer-fit accessories it’s showing at the 2019 Chicago auto show.The move also aims to hint at the vehicle’s off-road capability and encourage future owners to use their Explorer to… do more exploring.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Is One of the Best Excuses to Celebrate At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show

As we would expect from any contemporary auto show, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show is popping at the seams with new models offered as a “celebration” of some accomplishment or milestone. However, out of all these limited production runs and special editions, we think the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition is one of the best reasons to really celebrate. This two-door sports machine is an outlier in the market, looking a lot like a greatest hits album for the MX-5 nameplate. Here’s why we’re digging it.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus NX F SPORT Black Line Edition

The compact luxury crossover segment is no cakewalk, with huge competition pouring in from just about every corner of the globe. However, Lexus looks as though it’s holding its own here thanks to the NX. Now, the L badge is polishing up a new limited edition of the five-door and calling it the F Sport Black Line, loading it up with all the trimmings for sharper styling and a nicer experience in the cabin.
