Auto News for June 22

If you are a fan of torque catch this! Ram announced that its 2016 Cummings 6.7-liter diesel has hit a best in class 900 lb-ft of torque, the most ever offered in a mass production vehicle. That is up 35 lb-ft over the existing model.

Car shoppers using smartphones are just as likely – if not more likely – to engage in serious shopping than those using desktop, laptops and tablets, according to Edmunds.com. It maintains that smartphone users are more likely to focus on specific vehicles and the most popular brand for IOS and Android users is Toyota. Honda was second for IOS users and Chevy among Android shoppers.

Corvette convertible

 

The collector car experts at Hagerty have named their favorite classic convertibles for the summer months. Among them are:

1968-75 Corvette

1965-67 Mustang

1966-71 International Scout

1961-67 Lincoln Continental

1972-76 Porsche 914

1987-89 Toyota MR-2

While all are desirable for one reason or another, my favs are the final two on the list. I keep waiting for Toyota to announce an updated MR-2 but I doubt we will see such an affordable Porsche (VW) again.
