When the Detroit Auto Show rolled out its 2016 debut cars this past year, car enthusiasts were impressed with the diversity of innovative design elements coupled with cutting-edge electrical engineering components. Faster sedans, enhanced wireless connectivity, wider color options, and advanced electric technology are some of the main things to look for in 2016.
1. Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles
One of Honda’s most impressive entries is its hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, the Honda FCV. Scheduled for release in the late spring or summer of 2016, this car can travel more than 300 miles on one tank of compressed hydrogen. And it only takes three minutes to refuel.
2. Dual Electric Motors
Chevrolet’s 2016 Volt features dual electric motors (instead of the single one found in the first-generation Volt) that can work either individually or in tandem to provide 12 percent more efficient horsepower and torque.
3. Heavy-Duty Trucks With Exciting Designs
When it comes to power, it’s going to be hard to top the 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty, which offers a 6.2L Gas V8 engine with 440 hp and best-in-class 860 lb-ft of standard torque. This powerhouse truck is also available in more than 50 color combinations. There’s plenty of diversity in trims as well, with Dodge’s 2016 truck line offering 43 designs.
4. Optimum Connectivity
The Tokyo Auto Show was a showcase for the Nissan Teatro for Dayz, which features voice command functions, customized dashboards displaying navigational data, social networking sites, and even personalized artwork.
5. Faster Sedans
Cadillac’s CTS-V sedan features same 6.2L LT4 V8 found in the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06, and offers 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque, making this sedan a true powerhouse vehicle.
With so many choices, it’s easy to get overwhelmed; but it helps to concentrate on your primary needs. For more space or cargo room, consider an SUV. If you need to stay connected, look for super-connected 2016 models with GPS, Bluetooth, and wireless networking functions. If you love speed but need to be practical, check out the new high-speed sedans.
Many state-of-the-art models aren’t available until mid-year; but this will bring you right into fall, which is the best time to get super deals on the year’s models, thanks to nationwide closeout sales.
