Nissan, Maserati, McLaren, Jaguar, Jeep unveil new vehicles
Mark and I would have loved to have made the trip to Geneva. Plenty of announcements, like the 2016 Nissan Juke. Don’t get all excited here because it still looks weird. Read more here.
Maserati unveiled the Alfieri, a 2+2 concept car, a 100% functional prototype that says much about the design DNA of future Maseratis. I think this looks so much better than what Maserati has out now but still like a lot of other cars.
McLarens on the other had have a look all to themselves. I got to sit in one at the Chicago Auto Show. Introduced at Geneva is an open-top 650S joining the 650S coupe. Boy would I love to have one of these.
Jaguar confirmed the name of their all-new sports sedan coming to the U.S. in 2016, the XE. Another car on my list I would love to own simply because it’s a Jag.
Last but not least is Jeeps new entry into the small SUV segment, the Renegade. Great name from the past and I hope it lives up to it. I really like the styling but will wait to give it my blessing until I have a chance to drive one. This will be the first Jeep not built in Toledo or Detroit since the hookup with Fiat. The final assembly location for the Renegade will be at the Melfi Assembly Plant located in Italy built off a Fiat platform. We’ll see.
