New SUV from Range Rover, and a new CUE from Cadillac
February 22, 2017
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) officials have announced a new small SUV: the Range Rover Velar. It will slot between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport in JLR's luxury SUV branch. The Velar is based on the same underpinnings as the Jaguar XE sedan and F-Pace crossover, and the name itself is a throwback to the orignal Range Rover prototypes of the late 60s. We should know more, soon. Here's a picture for now:
Looks like Cadillac has been taking customer feedback seriously, as their finally getting around to revamping their CUE infotainment system. They are saying this newest version, in addition to being compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, will offer a more intuitive and smartphone-like interface. The system can also learn driver preferences, and adapt to the liking of a particular user. Of course, some actual, real world testing is the only true way to tell if it's better. And we should get that opportunity soon, as the new CUE system is set to debut on 2017 CTS sedans this year.
