A Potential Next-Generation 2019 Audi A7 on its Way

Quite recently and also quite surprisingly some images of a 2019 Audi A7 have surfaced. The car was actually caught in a distance doing rounds and performing initial testing wearing camouflage but with noticeable changes which we were able to depict even with the swirly camo on it. It appears that the second-generation A7 model is finally happening and we are looking forward to see more information about it than just the offered pictures.

The A7 made its debut in 2010 and since then it has had a lot of facelifts and redesigns already. The last one was actually made for the 2017 model year which saw it get new wheels, new options for its exterior paint job, and an array of inside features. But Audi is gearing for a second-generation A7 this time with a potential timetable set in 2019 which we will see this car appearing with many new additions and updates.

There is a lot of guess work to do here and a lot of the critics have already pitched their own ideas about the model coming out and the changes that they are issuing. Some of them do seem realistic while a lot of them are farfetched in a lot of ways. We were able to find out more about the release date and we bring you some news that we were able to get through our own research.

When is the Time table for Release of the 2019 Audi A7?

Since there is not definite time table for now for eth 2019 Audi A7 and it will probably debut a few years from now, we can only wait and speculate. The newest update which comes out for the 2017 model year is going to be released in the second quarter of 2016. The 2019 next-generation Audi A7 will probably be saved for mid-2019 when all the updates and changes have been done.

What might the price be for the 2019 Audi A7?

The newest 2019 Audi A7 model will probably add a bit of a higher price for the new version. Based on the current pricing, the base model will be available for $69,500 or the Premium Plus trim. The Prestige trim might go for $73,000 and it will also depend on the offered packages and engine options that might also be employed here.

Possible Updates for the Exterior

The newest 2019 Audi A7 will go through a lot of changes, but it is still hard to discern only through a spy photo which was taken from a distance. But it is noticeable that the car will have much thinner headlights compared to the newly updated model which is coming out now. Also we expect that the front end goes through some dramatic changes and that we also get to see the evolution of the grille design.

Compared to the current model the new grill will be wider but shorter with the points on the sides sharply defined. It actually reminds us a bit on the A8 model which will bring more luxury and flare to this car. The lower portion of the front fascia is also going to go through some changes and it appears that the air vents are going to be standalone units for this new car.

The rear end is going to get a slightly different shape compared to now. The rear glass has a kind of a bubble appearance while the overhang of the front end ahead of the front wheels is very much longer.  Also seen is a small spoiler in the rear which makes for a sportier appearance of the car.

Inside Design for the 2019 Audi A7

The interior of the next-gen 2019 Audi A7 is currently not featured on any of the released pictures. But it is clear that the inside will change but do not expect it to differ dramatically as this is an Audi vehicle that we are talking about. We expect to see some styling changes for the dash and also a reshaped instrument cluster. We also assume that the infotainment screen will be carried over as a pop-out unit but it will be longer and thinner. The seating design is also going to be addressed a bit but do not expect the overall feel and appearance to change so much.

We would like to see more headroom and it is highly likely that they add some in the rear part. This is very much expected to happen thanks to the bubbly nature or the rear end of the car. Also expected is a bit more hip room and shoulder room as the model is supposed to change dimensions to accommodate this. All in all, the interior will have to change so it gets to be more refined and gets to be more driver orientated.

Which Drivetrain to Expect?

There are actually a few directions that the 2019 Audi A7 could be taken in terms of its engines. They have more options to pick from and all of them sound great. Due to the use of the MLB EVO platform, it could highly be possible that the car adopts a 3.0-liter, supercharged, V-6 which could in turn return with an output of 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet.

Markets that are outside of the US can also expect to receive a 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel option which will be good enough to produce 218, 271, or 320 horsepower.

Another potential option is the use of a 4.0-liter V-8 engine which could be borrowed from the Audi A8. This also means that the care could potentially produce 435 horsepower and 444 pound-feet of torque.

Top Speed and 0-60 mph

The acceleration specs for the 2019 Audi A7 are very hard to predict now. The model has not yet received an engine so this does not help with the expected speeding ability. But based on what the car might get and the specs that the rivaling models can provide we are certainly looking at an acceleration between 4 to 5 seconds to reach 60 mph and a potential top speed of 155 mph. Once the engine is established we will have more information about these specs.

Fuel Economy Ratings

We can say the same as far as the fuel economy of the 2019 Audi A7 goes. Since the engine is established we are also going to be able to learn more about the potential fuel consumption of the 2019 Audi A7. But since the weight is down, this could mean that the consumption is down. We are potentially looking at better fuel economy for his car.

Dimensions and Size

Although it was not stated that the 2019 Audi A7 would change its dimensions, it is highly possible that it will. First of all, the car does look a bit wider and it would be a very good change which would affect the interior spacing and comfort rates. Also thanks to the potential of using the MLB EVO platform, the 2019 A7 will probably shed some weight and allow better performance and fuel economy.

Safety

We are expecting that the safety for the 2019 Audi A7 gets to be enhanced. It will most likely be updated and we can get to see soma expanded and updated features on this one. The current version already has a great display of safety potential but the next 2019 A7 might benefit form the addition of some newly added technology. We will see what they decide to do here.

Competition

The upcoming 2019 Audi A7 car will probably tackle the same kind of competition it used to before. The car which you might have in mind is the BMW 6-Series Grand Coupe model which is already held in high regard and featured as one of the premier models in the segment.

Some Interesting News about a 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake

It appears that we can consider a 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake as a possible vehicle. Scion has already confirmed the making of their new sedan FR-S version. There is a discussion about the release date going on right now. However, they also mentioned the prospects of bringing in some new body styles for the car as well. One of them is the Shooting Brake model. This would be one of the more interesting styles and models that Scion has made.

The chief engineer of Scion, Tetsuya Tada, said that the prospect of designing this car is going to allow for people with larger families to be able to move about. It will give more room and certainly much more convenience than a usual kind of a car.

“This car needs to be developed,” Tada said.” It is the only way for me to move my dogs around,” he jokingly said about the prospect of the car. But in truth, if you have a lot of members that you need to move all at once the Shooting Brake could offer you the necessary characteristics you need to do so.

There are only rumors about this car. So, we cannot expect confirmations nor any solid evidence to state when they are going to make the car. It is an idea which could produce something much bigger than it is now. Nevertheless, as it looks like, there is a very big possibility that we do not make it to a production model at all. If the concept or a working model satisfies the needs of the customers, they may just decide to make this car and give us more to hope for.

Possible Design

Since the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake does not exist for now, we turned towards the offered renderings. So we decided to play a guessing game about what we could possibly get. The basis for the car is of course the Scion FR-S sport coupe model. But the Shooting Brake will increase the size by 70 mm compared to the existing version and stretch things out a bit.

The new size of the car is supposed to help the interior by improving the passenger capacity. In addition, it should be offering more space. The cargo capacity alone might jump from 243 liters to 298 liters for the car. And if we decide to put the seats down it will go even further to 1040 liters.

Also the interior will have certain additions to help the passengers feel just right. One of the possible additions is the 60/40 split bench. It could come in favor of the current fold-flat rear bench. It makes it a lot eager to pack the needed passengers that way. Moreover, it helps with improving the interior spacing as well.

Engine Type for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake

The drivetrain choice for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake will most likely come to the same choice as seen in the coupe version of the FR-S model. So we are probably looking at a 2.0-liter boxer-four engine which will enable an output of 200 horses and 151 pound-feet of twist.

Therefore we are expecting at least 143 pounds of weight added for this model. The acceleration specs are going to change as well. The ones that come with a manual may speed up to 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds.At the same time the automatic ones will achieve the same in 8.5 seconds. Top speed is set somewhere at 155 mph as estimations go.

Potential Pricing

The model does not have an official release. However, if we are to guess the price of the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake we will simply increase the current coupe model by a margin.

The manual versions will cost £26,945, while the automatic ones come to £28,445. The prices in the US will be similar to these ones. It only takes the matter of translating the price into dollars. But it is much too early to really estimate. Furthermore, the base the price on something as much of the details are unknown.

Release Date for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake

The 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake is still an idea and not really a real product. The designers from Scion may only be joking now. Yet, if they get serious the Shooting Brake may just be built and produced. For now we are looking at it as a potential vehicle which might get to be made, but if it does it will certainly not be earlier than 2019.

We might get it even later than that. All in all, the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake still does not exists and the prospect of getting a production vehicle is possible but we shall see how likely it gets to be.

New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Expected to Perform Better than the Competition

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is expected to reach its release date soon. So we have decided to do a little bit more digging around in order to find out more about the upcoming release. One of the things that help us start are the leaked photos of the car. These are in fact spy photos of a camouflaged model which is doing rounds and performing tests. But it is obvious that we have the Silverado 1500 in preparation for us.

The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is going have a specific update. This is going to help it perform a lot better than the competition. Currently, the most sold truck in America is the Ford F-150 model. And it sales are not going to subside dramatically any time soon.

But there is a crack in the shield of the F-150 that Silverado may manage to exploit. It has to do with the fact that the model is still working with dated technology. And this is the biggest flaws that people can find about the car. This has even resulted in the car losing some of its sales. Furthermore, it has even cause it to deep down a little bit. Nevertheless, the F-150 holds its position firmly. But with the upcoming 2019 Silverado 1500 it may not hold on for so long.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Updates

We have learned about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 that it will update many of its features in the sake of getting better sales. The 2019 update will see improvements made to the technology of the car. In addition, it will update the platform which the car uses. The vehicle will add all the latest gadgetry that you may look to see in a vehicle like this one and even more than that.

At the same time, the car will also improve upon its competition that is already using some dated appliances. The second important improvement is the usage of a very lightweight platform. The current Silverado actually does not weigh so much. It is actually one of the lighter models in the segment.

However, they are looking to make this car even better. They want to remove as much as excess weight as possible. This will bring to a better output, more fuel efficiency and will generally make this car a very desirable vehicle.

In the wake of this car coming and reaching its fullest potential, we hope to see it as fast as possible. There are certain information that we are still looking for to emerge, though. This will also give us a fuller insight about the car and its possibilities. While we wait, here are the currently revealed information. So, we bring them to you in our review.

What is the Possible Release Date for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is not going to appear as soon as you expect it. But the car is coming by next year. The vehicle’s showcast is probably planned at one of the major shows. And we even hear rumors of it making its first official unveiling in Detroit. This is where the vehicle will be seen for the first time.

By then we will probably not get any solid information about the release date. And we will probably have to wait a bit to get it. But as we suspected, the car is going to start sales somewhere by the end of 2018 or in the beginning of 2019. More information are going to emerge as things get closer to the vehicle’s actual official showcasing.

Estimated Price of the Car

One of the more favorable parts about the newest 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is that it is going have similar price as the previous model. The platform and the materials of the car are going to stay light. So it will not raise the price of the car so much.

Thus we are expecting to see a similar one in the market. And it will be really beneficial for raising sales and the popularity of this car. All in all, we expect the base model to start at $28,880 as the current one is. But as we see some other more lucrative offers, we will immediately see the price rise as well.

This is going to happen due to the equipment and technology which the vehicle is going to add. Some of it will only be offered optionally. At the same time the other ones are exclusively given for higher trims. The highest trim is the High Country model. And this will probably cost at around $60,000. It will also come with all the bits and pieces you would expect it to have.

Exterior and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Redesign

Actually, the exterior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is probably not going to get an extensive aesthetic update. This model is going to have a very similar look as the outgoing model. This does not mean that this car is immediately going to go through a fall in the eyes of the audiences as their plans are a lot complicated than that.

The Silverado got its current form in 2014 and received some updates in 2016. But unfortunately the plan did not work as they were hoping it would and we hoped that it might get better with the update. But the 2019 is supposed to bridge so much of the miscues that were made with the given models as they will probably do a much greater job with it.

One of the thing which we view as important is the lighter materials implemented here. The car will use much more aluminum in the designing of the outer shell of the car which is supposed to make the car a lot easier to drive and bring it more efficiency and better usage.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Line

The all new frame of the car is going to include separate body and frame and will add a live rear axle placed by the leaf spring, which is the part that is not going to change. This also allows the use of rear-wheel drive as standard while the all-wheel drive version will come as optional, also the four-wheel one as well. They are going to employ advanced technology which will help with the trimming of the far and enable to car to reduce as much as excess weight as it could be possible.

As far as the design goes, it is hard to make out what could be underneath all the camo. Some parts are clear to us while the others are going to remain a mystery, but we are luckily not going to have to wait for them all the way till the release date.

The boxy frame is still there and the familiar kind of a design is present. We have spotted the new LED headlights given here and a new front bumper which is going to be more expressive than the one that we had before. The rear part of the car is going to add two exhaust tips which protrude down below.

New Technology Expected on the Inside

The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will add many new elements, but the ones that we expect the most are going to be regarding the technology of the car. Since all of the major rivals are having a dispute with their technology the newest 2019 Silverado 1500 will try to pass the competition by offering a larger and more extensive array of features. The vehicle is going to be equipped far better and will add a kind of an offer which the buyers are going to like and will exploit in a far better way.

We did not have a whole lot to work with as far as the interior goes, but there is a single spy photo taken of the interior which shows us just what we can expect to see on the inside. It appears that the interior is going to have a very similar layout as the current one and will make the center stack and the infotainment screen larger. This is a part of what we have expected to happen as the model will that way expand on even more features which come with it.

The comfort and the materials which the car has on the inside is going to be updated and will make it far more comfortable compared to the other ones in the segment. There are a lot of which we probably do not known here but as part of the update we also expect to get newer hues and color options and some added features which generally make the interior look more appropriate. And as always, the higher the package goes the better the options are and it will make the car a far viable option to have.

Powertrain Options and Ability

The information about the powertrain of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is still a little bit lopsided and we are going to get more information about it in due time. For now we know that the model is going to use two base engine options. The already familiar choice for the Silverado 1500 is the 4.3-liter V-6 variant which is going to be updated and prepared for this new version.

The second engine option is the turbocharged four-cylinder engine which will be used in order to help with the fuel-efficiency of the car. The model will probably combine the given engine and the new type of platform with the enabled lightweight materials so the result will be a much more suitable offer for those who want to save on fuel with the new kind of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Additionally, a V-8 option is also going to be added which will come in two displacements and give more variability this way. Finally, the transmission choices are going to come between an 8-speed and a 10-speed automatic ones which are going to be used based on the size of the engine.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

Unfortunately, there are no new stats to support the latest 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the specs it is expected to get. The model will certainly have some different acceleration stats which are going to be mainly because of the given changes introduced to the vehicle because of the weight reduction. The current model is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds but the top speed will probably remain similar at 99 mph.

Fuel Economy for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is going to update the fuel economy thanks to expected reduction in weight. The current model consumes 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway and we are looking forward for this stats to improve for the model which we are going to see pretty soon.

Size and Dimensions

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is more likely going to retain the same size and dimensions. There were no news about the model gaining more in size and expanding on the current one. They vehicle is 205.5-239.5 inches long, depending on the trim size, the wheelbase ranges between 119.0-153.0 inches and the width is  80.0 inches while the height may wary between 73.5-74.0 inches. On the inside the vehicle offers a passenger volume of 73 cu ft the least or 136 cu ft the most. The overall weight is between 4500-5300 lb.

Safety and New Technology

Safety is yet to be determined for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. All we know is that the car is going to add new technology in order to help with the safety. But the expected and standard features are still going to be present. This will help with passenger’s and the vehicle’s security.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and its Rivals

As mentioned already, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is probably going to have a tough job with the rivals. The most expected one that the vehicle needs to face is of course the F-150 from Ford. This has been the most sold truck in America in recent times.

It would be pretty hard to outsell that car and bring a far better offer. Bbut the Silverado is going to certainly try it with some options that they are cooking up their sleeve. Other models in the segment are going to include vehicles as the GMC Sierra 1500. This one is a virtual twin of the current Silverado 1500. But there are also other models as Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra and Ram 1500.
