Recalled models include the: 2021-2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe 2022-2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Jeep tells federal safety regulators that the SUVs “may have been built with incorrectly programmed hybrid control processor software which may result in a disabled windshield defrost system under certain conditions.” Jeep says a simple software update fixes it. But the vehicles aren’t capable of receiving over-the-air software patches, so owners will need to bring them in for a ..read more

Retro-Inspired 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Starts At $57,345
Kelley Blue Book News

Toyota has brought back the Land Cruiser name after a brief hiatus. The new model retains all the rugged off-road capability of Land Cruisers of old. But it moves into a smaller, less expensive market segment than the full-size, 3-row behemoth that last wore the name in the U.S. The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser was an outstanding off-roader. But it was about as big as an off-roader can get, drew power from an inefficient V8 engine, and cost nearly $90,000. The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser is a smaller, 5-seat SUV. Like every generation before it, it’s built for the trail. Even base models get meaning ..read more

Ford builds three electric vehicles (EVs) and has just cut prices on two. The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup is getting a round of new incentives to lower prices temporarily. With the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV, the discount is even easier – Ford has simply reduced the sticker price. There’s no word of price cuts on Ford’s other EV, the E-Transit commercial van. The company is having difficulty calibrating exactly how many EVs to build. Ford built too few of both when they were first introduced, leaving customers on waiting lists. Now, it has overshot, with finished exam ..read more

Reports: U.S. To Ease Tailpipe Emissions Rules, Slow EV Transition
Kelley Blue Book News
by Sean Tucker
1d ago
The White House is preparing to soften tailpipe emissions rules that, as currently written, would require automakers to reduce new vehicle emissions by 56% by 2032. Automakers estimate that, if the rules don’t change, they’d need 67% of the new cars they sell to be electric by 2032. Easing the rules would let them set a lower electric vehicle (EV) sales target. Reuters, citing two unidentified sources close to the Biden administration, says, “The EPA will slow the pace of its proposed yearly emissions requirements through 2030.” The softened regulation would still aggressively promote EVs.
