The Base-Model Alfa Romeo Giulia
Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. This will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. On the exterior, you’ll find a four-way lumbar, bi-xenon headlights with signature LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights.
Once inside, there’s a 10-way power front seats, backup camera with gridlines and rear park sensors, remote start, bright chrome window trim surround, seven-inch full-color TFT display, and remote proximity sensor.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti Sport
The package is priced with an additional of $2,250. It brings to the luxurious sedan the following features: unique front and rear sport fascias, gloss black window trim surround, 19-inch wheels, colored brake calipers, sport leather steering wheel, 14-way front power sport leather seats with lumbar and power side bolsters, and aluminum column-mounted paddle shifters.

You can get all of these for $2,250.
If you want more performance, you can get the Performance package. With this, you’ll enjoy adaptive performance suspension, aluminum column-mounted paddle shifters, and mechanical limited slip differential.

We were all expecting the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO to come at under $25,000 because that was what the Japanese automaker earlier revealed. So, it came as a big surprise that the NISMO, Nissan’s new sport compact, was priced at $25,855 because of the mandatory destination fee that was put at $5,000.
Aside from that, here are the three ways that Nissan NISMO surprised us:
1. The base price applies to both options.
How can there be one price for two different transmissions? The $25,855 price tag for the base model covers both the CVT automatic transmission and the 6-speed manual transmission. The latter is obviously the better choice for this turbocharged sedan but of course, there are drivers who prefer to go manual than automatic. Still, it was quite curious why Nissan decided to price the two trims the same. Traditionally, manual transmission should be cheaper.
2. The factory option for Sentra NISMO is priced at $295 and $1,220
Besides two transmission choices, Nissan only offers two other factory options for the 2017 NISMO. The first one is the Aspen White exterior color that sells for an extra $295 and the second one is the Premium package that adds $1,220 on the base price. The Premium package will bring in the Bose audio system and a 5.8-inch touchscreen that has navigation and satellite radio features. Coming standard to the NISMO are the following: heated seats, backup camera, proximity key, microsuede inserts for the steering wheel, a body kit, and 18-inch wheels in 215/45 all-season tires.
If you want summer tires, that is possible too, though Nissan has yet to release the pricing for that.
3. The Nissan NISMO costs more than Ford and Volkswagen.
The Ford Focus ST, which sells for $25,650, and the Volkswagen Golf GTI, which is priced at $26,415, are all coming in cheaper than the 2017 NISMO. That doesn’t make sense, actually, because the Focus ST is more powerful at 252 horsepower while the Golf GTI already ranked in the 10 Best Cars. The Ford Fiesta ST, which costs only $21,995, is 9-horsepower more powerful than the NISMO.
The only reason we can think of why the NISMO is priced higher is because of the stiffer suspension tuning and trim differences.
Nissan has released a US pricing of $174,990 for the new 2017 GT-R Nismo during its North American debut at the Japanese Classic Car Show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.
The JCCS, an annual gathering, is the largest one of Japanese heritage enthusiasts in the country. It attracts nearly 400 private heritage cars and more than 7,000 spectators.
The GT-R Nismo is now on sale at certified Nissan dealers nationwide. The premium model, on the other hand, started sale early this summer.
The GT-R Nismo is now available for the third straight year, and it continues to deliver supercar dynamics with advanced aerodynamics and precise handling. Nismo, the brand’s motorsport specialists, developed the GT-R Nismo. The model is available in very limited numbers in North America.
The GT-R Nismo for this model year is characterized by a new look inside and out, including driving performance enhancements. The GT-R Premium will be sold for $109,990 while the GT-R Nismo can be bought for $174,990. Destination and handling will be $1,595.
Michael Bunce, vice president for product planning of Nissan North America, said the Nissan GT-R’s performance was “honed, tuned and developed” at the Nürburgring race course last spring.
The 2017 GT-R Nismo has a new “V-motion” grille, which is one of Nissan’s latest design signatures, was enlarged for better engine cooling. It also now features a matte chrome finish, an updated mesh pattern, and a new hood with pronounced character lines that flow from the grille. This same hood was enhanced for high speed driving.
Unique to the Nismo are the carbon fiber front and rear bumpers, black outside mirrors with red stripe, and carbon fiber side sills and emblem. The rear spoiler is made of carbon and has a special coating for the carbon fiber weave style. This material allows for a lightweight feel with strong characteristics.
It looks like Chevrolet is keeping up its promise to offer the 2017 Bolt EV at an affordable price as it recently announced an MSRP of $37,495, including destination charge. This is rather cheap considering the Bolt EV has an EPA-rated 238 miles on a full charge.
Also, depending on individual tax situations, customers may even receive a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for a net value of $29,995. Alan Batey, president of GM North America and leader of Global Chevrolet, said that “value” is the hallmark for Chevrolet and their offering of an affordable Bolt EV proves their intent of letting their customers access an electric vehicle with plenty of range.
According to reports, Bolt EV buyers can expect range, cargo space, technology and safety features that all come standard in this vehicle with crossover proportions. Bolt EV is considered a smart buy for any customer, thanks to its dependable performance and sales and service support from a nationwide network of Bolt EV certified Chevrolet dealers.
With the Bolt EV, you’re not only saving on fuel and saving the environment at the same time, you’ll also be getting well-appointed equipment and features.
The Bolt EV is offered in the standard but well-equipped LT trim, which has a starting price of $37,495. It comes with a wide array of features such as Regen on Demand™ steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and MICHELIN™ Self-sealing tires (in certain circumstances). The top of the line is the Premier, which features all the equipment in the LT trim plus leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera and rear camera mirror.
The pricing released includes the destination and freight charges, but excludes taxes, title, license and dealer fees. Select dealerships across the US are expected to start offering the 2017 Bolt EV by late this year.
Customers may not be seeing the new Toyota Mirai in showcases anytime soon, but they can expect value pricing for the new model year. For 2017, Toyota is offering competitive and flexible price scheme options for the Mirai. This gives drivers an opportunity to be a part of the automotive industry.
The Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle mixes hydrogen and oxygen to create the electricity that powers the vehicle onboard. The car also emits nothing but water vapor, which make it environment friendly and fuel- and power-efficient.
Furthermore, the vehicle has zero emission with an EPA estimated driving range of 312 miles. It refuels in around five minutes too.
The Mirai has an MSRP of $57,500 plus an $865 destination fee. But the good news is that Mirai owners may qualify for an $8,000 federal tax credit and $5,000 potential California rebate, as well as an access to the covered California HOV carpool lane.
Toyota furthered their Mirai trailblazer support program for eligible and qualified customers. The program aims to enhance the purchase and ownership experience by offering it for Lease, which is $349 per month for 36 months with a $2,499 due at signing. It comes with 12,000 per year mileage allowance.
There is the Trailblazer APR Support as well—0% for 60 months or 1.9% for 72 months, and the Trailblazer Purchase Support of $7,500. These charges exclude official fees, taxes and dealer charges.
The 2017 Mirai will bring a new color option called the “Atmospheric Blue” which should complement the existing Celestial Black, Elemental Silver and Nautical Blue Mirai color choices of the model.
The car continues to offer a comprehensive ownership experience, which boasts a range of world class services–three years worth of complimentary fuel, Safety Connect and Entune, three years of 24/7 customer call support, Mirai Complimentary Experience for seven days each year for three years, and standard Toyota Care.
Nissan has revealed the US pricing for its 2017 Altima, which is now on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide. It has a starting price of MSRP $22,500. The car is worth the same as the 2016 Altima 2.5 model. The figures released by the company are suggested retail prices, and do not include other fees and charges that the distributor might add.
According to reports, Altima remains to be Nissan’s most popular vehicle, leading sales in 2016 until August of this year. It has distributed 333,000 units last year, and more are expected in the coming months.
The 2017 Nissan Altima has seven models you can choose from. These are the 2.5 ($22,000), 2.5 S ($22,900), 2.5 SR ($24,470), 2.5 SV ($25,460), 2.5 SL ($28,570), 3.5 SR ($27,990), and 3.5 SL ($32,690) models. The five 2.5-liter models can produce a total of 182 horsepower, and has a 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine. The 3.5-liter models, on the other hand, can offer up to 270 horsepower on its 3.5-liter DOHC V6. All of the 2017 Altima models will come with an advanced Xtronic transmission.
Fuel economy in the 2017 Altima is on a soar again, and this will be evident once reviews come in. It has a standard fuel economy of 39 miles per gallon highway for the Altima 2.5-liter engine equipped models. That’s a full six miles advantage over the leading competitive model in the segment.
The features that are exclusive to the Nissan Altima models are: Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Easy-fill Tire Alert and NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats. As for safety shield technologies, Nissan is boasting of its Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Cruise Control to Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
In terms of infotainment system, the new Nissan Altima has 7.0-inch displays, Siri Eyes Free (standard on all except the 2.5), NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps and NissanConnect Services Powered by SiriusXM® telematics (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
Everybody knew that the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will cost much, but it doesn’t make it easier now that we’re hearing just how much it really is.
First announced at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will sell for $41,700, the Japanese automaker said this week to a source.
But that’s only the entry price for this off-roading pickup powerhouse, which will have a 6-speed manual transmission with plated skid and reinforced Kevlar tires. It will also have amazing suspension system and all that rock-crawling goodness combined in a sturdy off-roader.
If you want an automatic transmission, you will have to shell out $2,000 on top of the entry-level price.
No one’s doubting the off-road credentials of the Tacoma TRD Pro. Ever since it was introduced at the Chicago Auto Show, experts have been looking into the upgrades Toyota fitted their pickup with.
Though we find the entry level price a bit unsettling, it might just be fair because apparently, this midsize Tacoma TRD is closely priced to the all-new Ford Raptor.
That one has a twin-turbocharged V-6 that produces somewhere around 450 horsepower, reports said.
The Raptor is being paired with a 10-speed automatic too, and it has sophisticated chassis wizardry. The new Ford off-roader will start at $49,520 for a Super Cab and $52,505 for the double cab.
These two models are in direct competition with the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock off-roader, which is being sold for $42,790. That off-roader suits all kinds of terrain, as expected.
The Tacoma TRD Pro will go on sale later this month, so we’ll expect to see its driver scaling some mountains after taking this out from the dealership. No further details have been released by its maker about the start of deliveries, but we are sure the next few weeks will reveal more.
Finally, Infiniti has announced pricing for its two-door 2017 Q60 sport coupe. The starting price is $39,855, though this can rise to about $42,000, depending on the powertrains and trim levels.
According to a report, the two-door sport coupe will be offered with either a rear- or an all-wheel drive in three trim levels the moment it goes on sale this September. Next year, we’ll get to see the 400-horsepower Red Sport 400 with the pricing to come later before the launch.
The lineup for the Infiniti Q60 includes the 2.0t, 2.0t Premium, and 3.0t Premium models when the cars are released to the market in September. The 2.0t will have a starting price of $39,855 while its AWD version will go on sale for $41,855. The 2.0t Premium has more equipment, which means an increase to $42,205. Its AWD version will sell for $44,205.
All the 2.0t models will come with the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that can produce 208 horsepower. Aside from this engine, some other standard features for the 2.0t include the 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, 8-way adjustable front seats, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio connectivity, and a rearview camera.
On the other hand, the Q60 2.0t Premium will enjoy a sunroof and a 13-speaker Bose audio system.
The 3.0t Premium will have a starting price of $45,205 while owning the 3.0t Premium AWD will cost you $47,205. Both of these 3.0t models have the VR-series twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that can churn out 300 horsepower.
The Red Sport 400 model will enjoy the same features as the 3.0t models, but with a 400-horsepower version of the engine.
All these prices will include a $905 delivery charge, according to Infiniti.
Those who want to get their hands on the Q60 sports coupe can place their order through the Reservation Program. Early bird registrants will also get a chance to have a gift from Infiniti. They can choose from: a GoPro Hero4 Silver camera, Rosewood Hotel one-night accommodation, a Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System, Tumi Tegra-Lite carry-on luggage, and a specially curated culinary experience.
Lincoln finally revealed the price for its 2017 Lincoln Continental, which a lot has been anticipating for. According to the company, it would cost $45,485, including a $925 destination charge. For a sedan as space generous as the Continental, that’s pretty neat, right?
This price is several thousands higher than the starting price for a standard MKS, which the Continental replaced. Still, it is below most rivals in the segment. Cadillac’s CTS is even more expensive as it has a starting price of $46,555.
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the aesthetic appeal of the Lincoln Continental. In fact, it is being offered in one of four trim levels—Premiere, Select, Reserve and Black Label.
There are also three V-6 engines you can opt for, with one of these unique to Lincoln. The base unit can crank up to 300 horsepower with its 3.7-liter V-6 engine. Customers can also choose a more powerful 335-horsepower turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 engine or the Lincoln-exclusive turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that can power up to 400 hp.
That $45,485 price tag will get you the Continental Premiere with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine and front-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive, if you opt for that, will cost you an additional $2,000 across the board.
According to reports, the Continental will go on sale starting this fall. Around 40,000 potential buyers have already made their interest known since the car debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.
Lincoln’s release of the Continental is triggered by the fact that the company also believes the buyers are now looking for big sedans that offer both comfort and luxury. This is clearly evident in the response to the releases of the Audi A6 and the Mercedes Benz E-Class—both the main competitions of the Lincoln Continental.
After promising fuel economy, elegant interior and superior handling dynamics, Mazda has released its pricing and packaging information for the 2016 Mazda CX-9, the midsize three-row crossover SUV that the company has been boasting about.
According to a press release, the CX-9 will retail starting at $31,520.
Robert Davis, senior vice president of Mazda’s US operations, said the company has high expectations for the crossover SUV. As a flagship, the CX-9 will be the starting point of all innovative technologies Mazda will test on their upcoming vehicles.
As a Sport trim variant, the CX-9 will come with LED headlights and taillights, much like the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster. It will also have fabric seating, electronic parking brake, 18-inch wheels, rear backup camera, trailer stability assist, Mazda Connect infotainment with commander control, and a seven-inch display.
In the Sport package, potential buyers can choose to add power driver’s seat, heated front seats and heated door mirrors.
The Touring, on the other hand, has an auto-dimming rearview mirror, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, Homelink garage door openers, black- or sand-colored leather seating, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System, power liftgate, power front seats, and an eight-inch Mazda Connect touchscreen display.
Buyers can also choose among other variants—Touring Premium Package, Grand Touring Model, and the Signature.
All of the models come packed with Mazda’s new turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine that generates 310 lb-ft of torque from just 2,000 rpm on either 87- or 93-octane gasoline. It also produces 250 horsepower on 93-octane gasoline (227 horsepower on 87-octane), and has the standard SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmission either in front-wheel or i-ACTIV all-wheel drive.
The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is expected to be on sale in the US this late spring with pricing starting at $31,520 for the CX-9 Sport, $35,970 for CX-9 Touring, $40,170 for CX-9 Grand Touring, and $44,015 for CX-9 Signature (AWD Standard).
