Business Insider’s 2016 Infotainment System of the Year Goes to Audi!

The Audi MMI/Virtual Cockpit won over the transportation team at business insider, making it a no brainer as the 2016 infotainment System of the year. The ability to stay connected in today’s world is essential with the increasing demand for immediate connectivity. According to Business Insider, “A great infotainment system makes car ownership a pleasure. A poor system makes it a chore. Consumers are far more demanding these days than they were just five years ago. And they’re going to get more demanding, as 24/7 connectedness continues to define their lives.”

“Think of this as built-in intuition.” Audiusa.com reports, “The Audi MMI operating system allows you to instinctively manage an array of systems including navigation, entertainment, interior, even ride dynamics on models with Audi drive select. The result is a balance of simplicity, intuitiveness and elegance to enhance your ownership experience.”


Staying connected isn’t the only thing Audi wanted to achieve when designing their Virtual cockpit. They also wanted to provide their driver with the ultimate safety keeping their attention on the road.

Safety First

According to Business insider, “Of course, not all trends are good ones: Consumer Reports has noted frequent owner complaints about balky infotainment systems; and the issue of distracted driving is of paramount importance.”
“Reliability, ease-of-use, precision (especially when it comes to navigation) and the ability of a system to be operated while driving without endangering anyone were key criteria for our choice — which involved debate and discussion all year long among Senior Correspondent Matt DeBord, Transportation Reporters Ben Zhang and Danielle Muoio, and Senior Transportation Editor Cadie Thompson (Evening News Editor and West Coast car buff Bryan Logan also kicked in his thoughts).”

Ford Super Duty named 2017 Motor Trend Truck of the Year

2017 Ford Super Duty

The Ford Super Duty was an early standout in the 2017 Motor Trend Truck of the Year competition.

The Ford Super Duty won over the team at Motor Trend, making it a no-brainer choice for Truck of the Year. “Sometimes, one vehicle so clearly satisfies or exceeds our criteria that we spend more time looking for faults than attributes, just to be sure we haven’t gotten ahead of ourselves,” wrote MotorTrend’s Scott Evans, “In this year’s field, the Ford Super Duty trucks emerged as the intuitive choice, one that had to be scrutinized, analyzed, and picked apart in subsequent days of testing.”

So what made the 2017 Super Duty the Motor Trend Truck of the Year? We’ll let the team at Motor Trend tell you themselves. 

Advancement in Design 

“Although the design is busy in places, an obvious vision has been executed. Every panel relates to the adjacent one, even around corners, and every line serves a purpose. Critically, the design as a whole advances the direction of the previous generation without losing or abandoning its signature. From every angle, there is no mistaking this truck for anything but a Ford.”

Super Duty Interior

Efficiency 

“Subjected to our Real MPG testing regimen, the Ford Super Duties, in all configurations, handily outperformed the equivalent Ram trucks. Given the gas-powered F-250 weighs some 400 pounds less than the Ram 2500 with similar equipment, we expected an advantage and weren’t surprised to see the Ford return 11.0/16.4/12.9 mpg city/highway/combined versus the Ram’s 9.2/15./11.4.”

Engineering Excellence 

“What the ads don’t tell you is how the truck actually behaves with 16 tons burdening the rear axle. With a class-leading 925 lb-ft of torque on tap, the F-350 Super Duty will begin rolling forward at idle when you release the brake—despite a gross combined vehicle weight of more than 40,000 pounds. That’s simply stunning torque.”

2017 Super Duty

Performance of Intended Function 

“The ability to extend blind-spot detection to cover a trailer adds an important layer of safety, as does the ability to monitor six trailer tires’ pressures and the trailer lights on the dashboard. Its 360-degree camera coverage greatly aides maneuvering in close quarters, as do forward- and rear-looking cameras. An additional camera mounted above the rear window, as well as the ability to zoom both this camera and the tailgate-mounted backup camera, makes connecting to a trailer a breeze for one person.”

Safety 

“Of course, we prefer a vehicle that can avoid collisions in the first place. To increase your chances, Ford has added a number of features, including collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and trailer sway control. All those cameras increase low-speed safety, as does the blind-spot warning system, especially when extended to cover a trailer. Adaptive cruise control helps maintain safe distances both laden and unladen and maintains a set speed on hill descent, even while trailering.”

Bloomberg studied 2016 auto sales in the United States, discovering that the top 11 best-selling models in the U.S. accounted for roughly one out of every four vehicles purchased. They nicknamed it the 100-second club, since each of these 11 models are purchased at least once every 100 seconds.

The 11 fastest selling vehicles in the United States:

  1. Ford F-150
  2. Chevrolet Silverado
  3. Ram pickup
  4. Toyota Camry
  5. Toyota Corolla
  6. Honda Civic
  7. Honda CR-V
  8. Toyota RAV4

Features of the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

VW Golf Alltrack

The team at Volkswagen choose their top 10 features of the new Golf Alltrack.

The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is ready for any adventure, with all-wheel drive, roomy interior, and a sporty design. The Golf Family Product Managers from Volkswagen of America, Inc. shared the 10 top features of the Golf Alltrack that sets it apart. See what they choose below:

Always in 4MOTION®

All-wheel drive helps when you take the road less traveled — or the road during a variety of weather conditions. That’s why the Golf Alltrack comes standard with 4MOTION all-wheel drive. In normal daily driving, the front wheels receive the majority of the drive power. However, when road conditions change, 4MOTION works to transfer grip almost instantaneously to help prevent wheel slippage. 4MOTION works to help ensure that the wheels with the most grip can provide traction where it’s needed.

For All Your Adventures

The 2017 Golf Alltrack was built for the great outdoors. So when you’re driving along a graveled forest road to a trailhead, you can have greater peace of mind. The new 2017 Golf Alltrack received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). NHTSA’s tests include front, side and rollover crashes.

Space to Spare

Adventurers need room for the backpacks, tents, camping gear, coolers and muddy hiking boots. With its standard 60/40-split rear seat folded flat, the Golf Alltrack offers 66.5 cu. ft. of storage. Even with the rear seats in use, the Golf Alltrack offers 30.4 cu. ft. of cargo space. And for the outdoor sports lovers, the Alltrack comes standard with a convenient rear-seat center pass-through to store your gear.

The Right Height

Trying to wrestle a mountain bike or road bike, or even a pair of skis, on to the roof rack of a compact sport utility vehicle can be a challenge. But with the Golf Alltrack, the roof height is just 4 feet, 11 inches, so it’s easier to lift a mountain bike or snowboard up there with no problem. Roof rails come standard with the Golf Alltrack, and Volkswagen Accessories offers some very cool gear, like carrier bars to hold your bike, board or a rooftop cargo box.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is now available to order

GLC Coupe

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is now available to order at privileged military pricing.

Mercedes-Benz recently introduced the all-new GLC Coupe, combining the sleek smooth lines of a coupe design with the powerful presence of an SUV. The four-door coupe is now available to order at Military AutoSource with privileged military pricing for U.S. military members.

The coupe design still allows for decent trunk storage, and it sports a similar amount of legroom and headroom to its non-coupe counterpart. The infotainment system is the same that can be found in the GLC and the C-Class. It features a 7-inch screen that is controlled by the selector on the center console.

The GLC Coupe has a 2.0L turbo-4 (241 hp, 273 lb-ft) engine, the same as the regular GLC model. The GLC was engineered with an exhaust note that comes alive around 4,000 rpm in sport-plus mode, offering the car some kick – giving you that roar, pop, and snarl from your tailpipe.

Speak to a Sales Representative today about your privileged military pricing on the all-new GLC Coupe.
