Morgan Stanley Drops Price Target on General Motors

April 10th, 2014

General Motors has taken quite a few deserved punches lately and it was delivered a final blow today. Morgan Stanley downgraded GM’s price target to a feeble $33/share from $49/share. Analyst Adam Jones remarked that the industry beginning a period of progressive technology change, due to the potential of electronic and self-driving vehicles in the near future. This downgrade is basically stating that GM will not be nimble enough to keep up during this transition. Jones stated that companies like Tesla were much more prepared to thrive in the upcoming years with the technological paradigm shift since it has its pick of engineers to help innovate and help the company adapt rapidly to major changes.

Jones also downgraded the Ford Motor company from $20/share down to $17, citing poor overseas gains and stronger competition nationally. This is disheartening as U.S. automakers were just beginning to rebound from the recession and provide steady gains and returns.

Car Price Comparison: 2013 Ford Fusion vs. 2013 Chevrolet Malibu

September 24th, 2012

Both Chevrolet and Ford are doing their best to regain their former glory in the automotive landscape.

The Koreans and the Japanese managed to put up a good fight. Hyundai gave us the redesigned Sonata midsize sedan, while Kia has the all-new Optima to raise the bar against the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord.

The Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord are well known for their reliability, comfort, and fuel economy. However, you now have the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and the 2013 Ford Fusion.

Do you happen to be searching for a new midsize sedan? Here is a brief car price comparison between the 2013 Ford Fusion and the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.

2013 Ford Fusion

<img src="http://staging.competingcarprices.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Fusion1-300×199.jpg" alt="" title="" width="300" height="199" class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-2801" srcset="http://www.competingcarprices.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Fusion1-300×199.jpg 300w, http://www.competingcarprices.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Fusion1 ou peut on acheter du viagra.jpg 800w” sizes=”(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px” />

Starting with a base price of $21,700, the 2013 Ford Fusion was completely redesigned to boost aerodynamic efficiency. It not only looks good on the outside, but the interior was also given an added treatment of refinement, comfort, and space.

The Fusion is powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 170hp. Higher trim models get either a turbocharged 1.6-liter or 2.0-liter engine with 179hp and 237hp respectively. The base 2.5-liter engine can achieve 22/33 MPG in city and highway driving, while the 1.6-liter turbo engine can achieve a stellar 26/37 MPG.

Standard equipment includes full power accessories, air-conditioning, Sync audio interface with voice-activation technology, automatic headlights, keyless entry, and 16-inch wheels.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

The U.S. market is familiar with the Chevrolet Malibu, but the 2013 Malibu is a completely different car. Starting with a base price of $22,390, the 2013 Malibu is wider yet shorter than the previous model, but most noticeable is the added degree of class and prestige inside the cabin–not to mention outstanding build quality.

The Malibu is powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 197hp. The first model to be introduced was the much pricier Eco trim, powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and a small electric motor. Power is rated at 182hp for the Malibu Eco. The base 2.5-liter engine achieves 22/34 MPG, while the Eco returns 25/37 MPG.

Not surprisingly, the base Malibu has the same level of equipment as the new Ford Fusion. It also has OnStar, Bluetooth, and full power accessories for added convenience.

Conclusion

The 2013 Ford Fusion provides fun and predictable handling. The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is more at home on the highway, thanks in large part to Chevrolet’s efforts in making the cabin as quiet as a Lexus.

Both cars provide impressive amounts of interior space, and both have fuel efficient and clean burning gasoline engines. If you appreciate sporty handling and aggressive design cues, the 2013 Ford Fusion is certainly worth a look over other Japanese and Korean alternatives.

On the other hand, if you want added levels of refinement and sound deadening in your ride, you should include the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu in your shopping list.

Auto Price Comparison: Audi Q5 vs. Range Rover Evoque

August 13th, 2012

Crossover vehicles have a broad appeal. They are comfortable to drive–similar to a normal road car–but they also have stylish sheet metal. Crossovers also come in variety of shapes, sizes, engine configurations, and consumer appeal.

We compared the Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque–two of the most stylish and luxurious small crossover SUVs. The Audi Q5 is priced lower than the Range Rover Evoque, but the latter offers something that is absent on a large majority of crossover SUVs in the market today: real off-road capabilities.

2012 Audi Q5

Edmunds.com says this about the Audi Q5: “You can really have it all with the 2012 Audi Q5. From exciting performance to excellent comfort and convenience, this crossover has broad appeal”.

With a base MSRP of around $35,600 the Audi Q5 already comes with Quattro all-wheel drive and a turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 211hp together with an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you need more power, then you can order the 3.2-liter V6 with 270hp. This engine is mated to a 6-speed auto box.

Standard equipment includes automatic wipers, automatic headlights, triple-zone climate control system, full leather seats, power driver seat, sliding and reclining rear seat, 18-inch wheels, and a 10-speaker audio system with satellite radio as standard.

The 2012 Audi Q5 2.0T can return a best-in-class 20/27 MPG in city and highway driving. And it being an Audi, the interior craftsmanship of the Q5 is simply amazing. And since it is based on the Audi A4 sedan, you can add sporty handling to the list of attributes of the Audi Q5.

2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

From a purely aesthetic perspective, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is more stylish compared to the Audi Q5. It even comes in a coupe body style for added appeal. However, the Range Rover Evoque offers real-world off-road capabilities, thanks in large part to the Terrain Response System. The Evoque can alter engine, transmission, suspension, and throttle settings with a simple turn of the knob, or it can automatically adjust on its own.

The Evoque starts at around $41,000–considerably more expensive than the Audi Q5–but it also comes with a generous level of standard kit. Power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 240hp. The engine is mated to a smooth 6-speed auto box.

Standard equipment on the Evoque includes the Terrain Response System with hill-start assist feature, front and rear parking sensors, dual zone auto climate control, full leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, a sunroof, and an 11-speaker audio system with touchscreen interface.

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque can return 18/28 MPG in city and highway driving. Driving the Evoque is akin to piloting the plush Range Rover Sport, albeit having a more stylish and striking interior. The Evoque can also accompany you to any type of mild off-road adventure, since it was also designed to bring you where other crossovers simply cannot.

If you happen to be searching for a compact luxury crossover SUV, you should both consider the Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque.
