2017 new suvs
Ian Thibodeau The Detroit News Published 6:00 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 Ford Motor Co. is betting on an all-new, cheaper midsize SUV to jolt its struggling business in China, the world's fastest-growing — and potentially most-lucrative — automotive market. The Dearborn-based automaker announced Wednesday in China plans for the all-new Territory, a midsize SUV that targets buyers outside of China's biggest cities by offering a lower price than most Ford or Lincoln vehicles currently sold there. The SUV will launch in early 2019, the automaker said. It comes at a pivotal time for Ford. The carmaker lags hometown competitor General Motors Co., as well as other international companies, in terms of sales growth and market penetration in China. Ford's sales there slid 25 percent through the first six months of the year; the company blamed an aging vehicle lineup. The Territory, developed with Ford's joint-venture partner, Jiangling Motors … [Read more...] about Ford to launch all-new midsize SUV in China

The average depreciation rate for the top-10 almost-new SUVs after three years fell between 41.7% and 47.2%. Pick-up trucks did not have as high a 3-year-old depreciation rate, as the three cars listed had an average of 23.3%. We all love a good deal when we see one. One of the better deals on the market is the purchase of an almost-new off-lease used car, meaning one that has only seen three years of use on the road. The automotive search engine iSeeCars.com recently commissioned a study to look at the used car industry, where they found the best used-car deals out there. But the study also took a more focused measurement of which are the best used cars that … [Read more...] about Here are the 13 best used-car deals for trucks and SUVs
Mary Hanbury, provided by Published 4:42 pm, Saturday, May 12, 2018 Business Insider/Mary Hanbury In the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, the US infrastructure received a D+ grade, which equates to it being "in poor to fair condition and mostly below standard." US airports were highlighted as one of the areas in need. Despite this, when Trump laid out his much-anticipated infrastructure plan in February, airports barely got a mention. Local governors are taking matters into their own hands. In 2017, New York's Governor Cuomo proposed a $10 billion renovation of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. This is currently being negotiated. We compared the experience of flying in and out of New York's JFK airport and London's Heathrow airport and found that Heathrow was the clear winner. The US has an infrastructure problem.

Produced by Judy Rybak and Josh Gaynor "This was an enormously high-profile case," says Bill Rankin, a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and a "48 Hours" consultant. "They were a big-time power couple." On Sept. 25, 2016, Tex and Diane McIver were heading home after a long day of golfing and an evening of drinking. A friend who did not drink was at the wheel of Tex's SUV. Diane was in the front passenger seat and Tex was right behind her. He says he was fast asleep. Not far from home, they hit traffic and exited the highway. Tex says he woke up afraid that they were in a bad neighborhood. He asked his wife to hand him the .38 caliber handgun gun he kept in the car's console. Minutes later, with that loaded gun now in his lap, Tex says he fell back asleep. "And it went off," he later told police. Tex McIver shot his wife of 11 years in the back. She died during surgery. "Can a .38 Special just accidentally go off?" '48 Hours" correspondent Maureen Maher asked … [Read more...] about Atlanta attorney fatally shoots wife in SUV: Accident or cold-blooded murder?
