There are new cars rolling out on the market every year and most manufacturers are trying to get out on the market new iterations of their models at least once every three years in order to be able to compete with the newest cars out there. This year a lot of cars have been showcased to the public and many of these cars are actually going to be out on the market in 2016 as 2017 models, meaning that we pretty much have the future of our car industry directly in front of us.
There are going to be quite a few new model cars 2017, some of these including the new Ford GT, a hyper-car made by Ford in order to compete head to head with the Ferrari 488 and even the McLaren 650S, a new Audi RS5 which will be some of the most advanced cars on the market at the time of its launch and an icon, the new Grand National which is going to be based on the Regal and it will be one of the most impressive sedans on the market.
New model cars 2017 – 2017 Ford GT
Let’s start our small preview of the New model cars 2017 with the next generation Ford GT, a car which has been presented earlier this year and that it is scheduled to go into production by the end of 2016. Unlike the previous version, Ford did their best in order to make a real hyper car that uses a state of the art engine, a full carbon fiber body and chassis which is quite rare even for the more exotic car manufacturers as well as one of the most intriguing designs of the decade. While the previous GT looked a lot like the GT40, this new generation has nothing in common and it is in fact very modern. It uses active aerodynamics, wing-line rear elements which are designed to work just as a racing wing, but smaller and better integrated into the design of the car as well as a really narrow cabin which is usually only on the racing cars from Le Mans. The GT will be powered by Ford’s 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost but this time it should make well over 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, all of which are going to go only to the rear wheels.
New model cars 2017 – 2017 Audi RS5
The 2017 Audi RS5 is also one of the most awaited sports cars of 2017 and that is mainly because it is going to be one of the first cars to use electric superchargers. It will come with a 3 liter V6 diesel with three turbos, offering as much as 400 horsepower and more than 750 lb-ft of torque as well as a newly developed 3 liter twin-turbocharged petrol V6 with up to 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. In any case, at least one of the turbochargers is going to get an electric aid that will basically remove any kind of turbo-lag, meaning that the RS5 should be considerably faster than the current generation.
New model cars 2017 – 2017 Buick Grand National
The other of the new model cars 2017 is the Buick Grand National, a car which has been rumored ever since the new generation of the Regal has been released. It seems that this is still going to use the same platform as the Regal but unlike the Regal, it will only be offered with all wheel drive, an all new body-kit which will be somewhat similar to the one found on the iconic GNX with similar wheels and a very similar back end. The engine in this is going to be a 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 which could provide north of 360 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque which would finally give Buick a model that could at least take a swing at the current leader of the compact executive car market, the BMW 3-Series and the M3, both of them being the leaders in their respective class.
