The BMW brand will roll its updated concept of the hybrid X5 e-Drive. As you may remember, first, this concept was introduced in Frankfurt last year, then we saw it when testing, but this time the BMW carmaker is ready to show the whole world its eDrive novelty.
The hybrid X5 concept is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and the electric motor. This hybrid powertrain allows reducing the fuel consumption to 61.8 mpg in combined driving mode.

Then the New York auto show will show new performance cars. And there are three main models introduced.
The first one is the updated Dodge Challenger. The redesigned interior does not include noticeable changes; however, the powertrain has gotten upgrades such as the new HEMI V8 supercharged engine; this novelty will be also available with the eight-speed automatic gearbox as well.
