All-New 2017 Nissan GT-R Unveiled

With a new look, more power, and more comfort, the 2017 Nissan GT-R is finally here. Recently unveiled at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, the 2017 GT-R is the first major update to Nissan’s flagship supercar since its 2007 introduction.

The GT-R has always been incredibly fast with its hand-built twin-turbocharged 3.8L V6 engine, but the 2017 Nissan GT-R is even faster. We look forward to 565 hp (a 20 hp increase), which is the highest standard hp among GT-R’s major competitors. Comfort improvements include Nappa leather, targeted sound dampening, NissanConnectSM with Navigation, and more.

The New 2017 Buick Encore – More Elegant, Less Awkward

The 2nd generation of the Buick Encore is here. First introduced in 2013, the 2017 Buick Encore now offers a new design and some sweet new tech. In 2015, the Encore was the best-selling Buick in North America, so it makes sense that the company are investing in this vehicle. Expect to see the 2017 Encore in dealerships this fall.

While some felt the 1st gen Encore looked a little too much like a squished Buick Enclave, this SUV has officially escaped the cruel grip of puberty. To start, the new LED headlamps and redesigned grille add a fresh, modern feel to this SUV. Inside, the 2017 Buick Encore offers an 8-inch color touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bose Active Noise Cancellation, and nearly all the latest crash-avoidance features and alerts.
