The Nissan Qashqai was like a big surprise for the automotive press in attendance. A hot seller in Europe, this small urban SUV will be seen on Canadian roads as early as this coming spring, joining Nissan’s utility-vehicle roster somewhere between the JUKE and the Rogue.

The new 2018 Ford F-150 received a major mid-cycle update that makes it even tougher, even smarter, and even more capable than ever. Styling has been enhanced, and the revised engine lineup includes a brand new, direct-injected 3.3L gasoline V6 and a new 3.0L Power Stroke turbo-diesel V6.

Longer and lower than the outgoing model, the all-new LS debuts a strikingly bold design with a coupe-like silhouette punctuated by the new Lexus design language.
