The Acura ZDX is dead - Autoweek TV with Greg Migliore
-- The Acura ZDX is dead,
-- Honda is thinking about a return to Formula One,
-- what is the most popular car color for 2012?
The Acura ZDX is dead, Honda is thinking about a return to Formula One, and
what is the most popular car color for 2012? Stick around for that.
I'm Greg Migliore. This is Autoweek TV for Thursday.
Acura confirmed has confirmed it will discontinue the ZDX crossover after
the 2013 model year. The five-door crossover struggled to find a niche in
the crowded U.S. market. The ZDX had its best year in 2010. Acura is
raising the price to about $52,000 this year for its final run, and also
adding some extra options.
Honda is at least considering returning to Formula One, where it has been
absent since 2008. Autocar reports Honda is taking a close look at the
1.6-liter turbo engines specifications
set to be used in F1 in 2014. For now, Honda plans to runs a 1.6-liter
engine in the World Touring Car championship for the final races of 2012.
And what is the most popular car color in America? Drum roll please: it's
white, followed by silver, followed by black. That's according to paint
experts PPG, which compiles the annual results. Traditionally, blander
colors tend to top the list thanks to their widespread appeal.
That's it for today. Just a reminder, the shopautoweek.com iPad app is live
at the iTunes store to help you out with all of your fall car shopping
needs. It's free, and it's useful whether you want a white, silver, grey or
here's a crazy thought red, car.

2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S rated at 542 hp - Autoweek TV with Natalie Neff
Also in this episode: Chevy orders more Sparks to meet rising demand, and
Dale Earnhardt Jr. takes a break to nurse a concussion.
-- Porsche reveals the most powerful Cayenne yet.
-- Chevy calls for more Sparks.
-- And Dale Junior is going to take a two-week break.
I'm Natalie, wrapping up another week with a hot-octane episode of Autoweek
TV. Let's light the tires and see what's making news:
Porsche has unveiled a new version of the Cayenne, the turbo S. It gets a formal debut at the Los Angeles
auto show in late November and goes on sale next March. The new Cayenne
runs a lightly modified version of the turbo's 4.8-liter V8, the same engine used by the
Panamera turbo S.
Power climbs to about 542 hp, making the turbo S the most powerful Cayenne model yet.
Torque is rated at 553 lb-ft. The all-wheel drive Cayenne turbo S uses an air suspension and Porsche's
active-damping control, along with hydraulically operated roll bars to
minimize body roll.
It's another way you can really haul the cargo.
Details on the Porsche Cayenne turbo S:
Chevy needs more Sparks. GM has upped its order for the minicar from the
assembly plant in South Korea after a stronger than expected start to
sales. Chevy launched the Spark in 18 metro markets last summer. During the
first two months, sales totaled 6,300 units and dealers have been asking
for more cars.
For more on the Spark:
Finally, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is taking a couple of weeks off from NASCAR
racing. Junior was caught up in the "big one" that happened on the last lap
of last weekend's Sprint Cup race at Talladega and got his bell rung.
He says he became disoriented as the car spun around, although he was able
to drive it back to the garage. But after having some severe headaches,
doctors say the driver has a concussion. He also sustained a concussion
from a crash in Kansas in August.
Junior hopes to return for the Martinsville race at the end of this month.
Until then market: Regan Smith will drive is car.
Details on Dale Jr.'s concussion:
That's the news for this week. It's a great weekend for seeing the fall
colors, football tailgating and some apple cider and donuts -- so get out
there and enjoy the drive.
We'll see you on Monday.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG gets an anniversary upgrade - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
Also in this episode: GM names Robert Ferguson its "vice president of
global Cadillac," Toyota turns to the Home Shopping Network to sell cars,
and race-car constructor Lola succumbs to its financial troubles.
-- Cadillac gets a new boss.
-- Toyota hawks hybrids on HSN.
-- Mercedes builds a near-perfect SLS.
--And another storied car-builder goes under.
I'm Rory, it's Wednesday, let's do news:
GM has appointed its top lobbyist, Robert Ferguson, to a newly created and
confusingly named position, vice president of global Cadillac.
Ferguson will focus on Cadillac marketing, advertising and improving the
Cadillac customer experience. He called the new job a challenge, but
compared to working in politics, this should be a walk in the park.
More on Ferguson:
When you think of the Home Shopping Network, what comes to mind? Yeah, I
had to look it up too. Apparently it's a whole network where celebrities
get tuned up and sell fragrance lines, clothing and appliances that they've
supposedly endorsed. Apparently Toyota thought they might be able to
offload some of their appliances—I mean hybrids--on cable too because
they recently trotted their entire line-up of very exciting transport
modules before HSN viewers.
It wouldn't be "as seen on TV" if there wasn't a special offer, so Toyota
gave away $1000 HSN gift cards or $1000 gas cards to those who acted fast.
The company also gave away prizes and invited viewers to play games during
the broadcast. Some viewers even entered to win a Toyota Avalon hybrid...
More details on Toyota & HSN:
Just like the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the excellent Mercedes-Benz SLS gives
drivers the option of shifting gears by daintily plucking at a little
paddle with an outstretched digit. However, Mercedes has recently released
the most wonderfully undainty version of the SLS yet to celebrate the 45th
anniversary of the first SL. Five will be built to SLS AMG GT3
specification, and they'll cost just a hair under $580,000. I'm going to
shut up so you can focus on the pictures.
Finally, some sad news. Lola, the manufacturer of some of the greatest race
cars of all time, has ceased operations. The company was facing $30million
in debt. After attempts to sell the company failed, they closed up shop.
Details on Lola:
Well, that's the news. We'll see you back here tomorrow. Until then, check
out our related videos at Autoweek.com, and as always, enjoy the drive.
Road Test: 2013 Honda Accord
Through eight generations of sedans, coupes, and even wagons, the Honda
Accord has grown up right alongside the American family. But, the 9th
generation Accord greets an altered automotive landscape, now filled with
challengers from both import and domestic brands. Can the 2013 Accord can
remain a family favorite? MotorWeek's John Davis has a road test review of
the 2013 Honda Accord.
2013 Honda Accord Sport: CVT vs 6 Speed Manual 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord Sport with the 189 HP 2.4L
engine can be purchased with two transmission options. You can get the new
Honda Accord with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters or you
can opt for the more traditional 6 speed tranny that you have to row
yourself. In another fun and informative TFLcar mile high 0-60 MPH mashup
review we test the car with the same engine but pit the CVT automatic
against the manual 6 Speed transmission. So which of these two options is
the faster way to go. You'll have
to watch this TFLcar mashup review to find out.
