Lincoln To Change Car Names, Will It Matter?

What’s in a name? People, animals, and things have their own moniker that they are famous for. Names could range from the most common to very unique combinations. Today, aside from the car brand, automobiles have their specific names according to model. Ford is known for their truck names such as Bronco, Courier, D-Series, Ranger and even Ranchero. General motors, another automobile company have car names like Alpha, Delta, Epsilon and Sigma. However the Lincoln Motor Company, a division of the Ford Motor Company sells luxury vehicles mostly to their North American market. This automotive company is well known for its confusing car names (seen here at www.reedmantolllincoln.com)  ranging from initials such as MKS, MKZ, MKT and MKX. But according to its vice president, talks...

HYUNDAI & Successs

HYUNDAI & Successs

It’s just amazing how some companies started so small and in a very short period of time became incredibly successful. Hyundai Motor Group is one of those fantastic companies.  It’s also important to note that Hyundai is now the fifth largest car manufacturer (in sales volume), and it started less than fifty years ago. Who would have guessed that an unknown automaker in South Korea would have become so outstanding, especially with all the very well established brand names already trying to corner every inch of the world market?  When Hyundai first began building cars, people must have thought they were crazy. Why would anyone enter that dog eat dog arena of steel on wheels competition when they could do something much easier like make clothing or sell food? Chung Ju-Yung, t...

2013 Dodge Challenger:  A car with great characteristics

No matter what kind of car you want, it is within reach at one of the many thousands of car dealerships across America.  If you want an American made car, the first kind that come to mind are Chevrolet’s and Ford’s.  If you want a Japanese made car, the best ones are Honda’s and Toyota’s.   However, if you want a muscle car, there is only one name you need to remember:  Dodge Challenger.  The Dodge Challenger is defined as a muscle car because it’s a large V8 engine which is fitted in a 2-door, rear wheel drive, family-style mid-size or full-size car designed for four or more passengers. This American muscle car has a choice between a V-6 and a V-8 engine.  Many people who buy this car are not concerned with fuel economy, so they go all out and buy the V-8.  How...

The FIAT 500e – An Eco-Chic Car for the Modern World

The race is on to build the best electric vehicle. While Toyota and Honda used to be the main competitors in ‘green’ vehicles, they have been joined by a number of other automakers ready to offer consumers a chance to drive a fuel efficient car from their brand. The latest to join the electric vehicle market is FIAT. They have already introduced their brand new FIAT 500e at auto shows, and are expected to ship the vehicle to dealerships by Spring of 2013.

Pick-up Comparisons – A Look at the UK Market’s Pick-up Trucks

One of the surprises of the continuing fallout from the global financial crisis is that, in certain sectors of the motor industry, sales and production figures are actually increasing. Nowhere is this more significant than when it come to UK sales of pick-up vehicles. Across all styles, including single to double cab pickup trucks of two-wheel or four-wheel drive setups, sales increased in the run up to the banking crash by 347% over the previous 5 or 6 years. They have then continued to rise in the aftermath, against almost all expectations.

Have You Ever Considered the Merits of a Hybrid Car?

Have You Ever Considered the Merits of a Hybrid Car?

Hybrid cars are cars that do not rely simply on a conventional petrol or diesel engine to run effectively. They contain an electric engine which, in differing degrees, takes over the job of the regular engine. A micro hybrid car uses its regular engine to move about, but reverts to electric mode when it is stationary, such as when sat in traffic. A mild hybrid uses the electric motor to supplement the regular engine, so that less fuel is required. A full hybrid uses electric power at low speeds with a regular engine at higher speeds. All sorts of people choose to make their new car purchase a hybrid model for different reasons. Perhaps once the exclusive reserve of environmentalists, it has now become a very mainstream thing to do for several reasons. The cost of running a hybrid ...

Cars that Refuse to Die (Even When You Sort of Wish They Would Already)

You pull up to a light and look over to see a car that looks just like the one you had when you were twenty. Wait - it is the car you had when you were twenty! Look around the next time you’re out driving somewhere, and you’ll see a lot of “old” cars that just keep on truckin’ (only we’re just talking cars here, not trucks, so pardon the pun), and they don’t need a lot of upkeep to stay that way. Here, then, are the top five cars that refuse to die. Subaru Wagons Every single one manufactured is still on the road – guaranteed. They can get you through any type of weather, and people who have one swear by them and rarely (have to) give them up.

Serious Head Injuries and How to Identify Them

While cars offer many advantages and look great, and fulfill many of our psychological needs, they are also quite dangerous machines. If you are involved in a car accident there are many injuries that you can sustain. One such serious injury you can sustain is a head injury. You may have noticed, if you ever experienced a head injury yourself or witnessed one in real life or on television, that a great deal of emphasis is placed on inspecting the victim. Even when the blow to the head seemed light or the wound minimal, medical personnel are always very eager to examine someone who has suffered head trauma: this is because serious head injuries and brain injuries are not always immediately obvious, but can have very dangerous long term effects. The brain’s tissues can be easily dama...
