Lexus has built a great reputation of offering its luxury cars and SUV’s at prices that are much lower than the competition and packed full of even more features and equipment to enjoy. The 2015 version of the Lexus RX is no different coming in with a ton of great features and equipment to enjoy and a much lower starting price than all if its competitors. As a mid-sized luxury crossover offering, the RX is the prescription the doctor ordered for anyone needing a great luxury SUV at a very easy to live with price.
Competing in a class that includes the Cadillac SRX, Acura RDX, BMW X3, Audi Q and Infiniti QX50 (a veritable alphabet soup of competition), the RX shows off with everything an owner wants in their vehicle long term, reliability, resale value, versatility and comfort. Adding to this, the RX offers a version for both the power hungry with the F Sport, and the fuel savers with the RX hybrid model to appeal to a varied audience. The RX adds a rearview camera, a seven-inch touchscreen, a 12-speaker audio system, and replaces the six-disc CD changer to a single one, all standard for the 2015 model year.

As the leader in truck sales for so many years, Ford has defined what it means to make great trucks year after year and the 2015 model year is shaping up to be much of the same. The F250 Super Duty truck comes in as big, bold, powerful, strong, and highly capable. With a monstrously large towing capacity, enough space with the Crew Cab to take the entire crew to the jobsite, or the family to the lake, the truck offers performance and power that are plentiful and very enjoyable.
Offering a much more powerful engine for this year’s lineup as a response to both the Chevrolet Silverado and the Ram 1500, loyal Ford followers will love this new super powerful engine that takes care of business. Add a stronger frame and an upgraded towing package both new for 2015 and the F250 is really ready for action. The towing capacity has been ramped up to a full 26,500 pounds and can even be more for an owner willing to move up to the massive F450 that hauls as much as 31,200, which is enough to take care of absolutely every job out there.

For this new model year, 2015, Lexus will unleash a new crossover SUV for all to enjoy in the version of the NX 200t. Poised to compete in the market with the Acura RDX and BMW X3 the NX 200t should be able to take a great deal of market share competing in this class with its classic Lexus stylings and appointments. Because Lexus has had a great deal of success with crossover SUV’s in the past with the RX 350 and ES 350 the NX 200t is expected to be another leader in the class.
The NX 200t is expected to be released with a starting price around $39,700 and move up from there. This is actually higher than the original expected price that was supposed to be closer to $30,000. The simple reality is though that most luxury cars starting prices are meaningless because most luxury shoppers add amenities and features that they want to enjoy and don’t end worrying as much about price. There are a few shoppers who will buy a Lexus at the base model, but that crowd is very few and far between and doesn’t seem to be the crowd Lexus is catering to anymore.

Dodge seems poised to introduce yet another, lighter sports car that offers a similar style as the Dodge Challenger and maybe even be set to replace the Challenger altogether. The 2015 SRT Barracuda appears with the SRT (Street Racing Technology) tag that is adorning only the best and most powerful of the Dodge sports cars these days.
Using a new and smaller platform than before, the 2015 Barracuda should come in about 300 pounds lighter than previous models. This allows the car to be faster off the line than before and if the power is the same, be able to maintain speed and power throughout a long run. Built to compete with the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Alfa Romeo, the Barracuda appears to be ready to take on these longstanding namesakes and see which one is the best car.
