Yes, you read that right: 25 years of the Mazda MX-5 Miata.  For those of us old enough to remember a world without the Miata, it certainly doesn’t feel like a quarter-century has passed since the release of the iconic roadster.  The MX-5 made its debut at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, drawing rave reviews from critics and reviving a bygone era of small, two-seater sports cars like the Triumph Spitfire and the MG B.

No matter your opinion on the Miata (it’s always been a critics’ darling, but is sometimes stereotyped as a “chick car”) you have to admire the diminutive Mazda’s staying power. Twenty-five years is an incredible production run for any model these days, especially considering the fickle tastes of consumers.

In an age of continuously evolving technology in all aspects of the automotive industry, Jeep® is taking a step back from the tech race to give drivers a breath of fresh air. With the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition, the venerable auto manufacturer hopes to give potential buyers a taste of the past fused with modern comfort.

The editors at Up To Speed love it when a universally recognized brand, such as Jeep, reaches into the past and brings back classic styling to make a model fresh again. With electric vehicles and flashy new design concepts on the bound, is this how the old guard of the auto industry will keep their loyal customers? Throwback designs and functionality-themed vehicles could be a great way for manufacturers to stand apart from their tech-driven counterparts. Continue reading

John Kenney, Principal Researcher at Toyota InfoTechnology Center, testified before Congress recently about research and potential implementation of groundbreaking new technology for the auto industry. Direct short-range communication technology or “DSRC” would allow for drivers to be alerted by their vehicle of hazards, emergency personnel, or pedestrians that may otherwise be out of sight. Although the DSRC technology already exists, bandwidth for such devices is limited, which is the reason Kenney was testifying before Congress on Toyota’s behalf. Continue reading

Jaguar: Good to Be Bad with First Ever F-TYPE Coupe Super Bowl Commercial

Long associated with the finer things in life, Jaguar has a sophisticated new plan for marketing its new F-TYPE coupe this football season, according to a recent press release. In its first-ever Super Bowl commercial, the venerable British car manufacturer intends to build upon the brand’s association with luxury by focusing on the fact that so many classic (and classy) Hollywood villains hail from across the pond.

The advertisement will feature several prominent English actors (who have played villains themselves) and will make the association that if these brilliant bad guys choose Jaguar, so should you. The editors at Up To Speed know that Jaguar is, without a doubt, a top selection when it comes to luxury cars … but does the company really want to declare themselves the car of choice for evildoers? Could this tongue-in-cheek advertising campaign backfire for the well-recognized Jaguar brand? Let us know what you think. Continue reading

The auto industry has been concerned for years about the buying habits of millennials. On the surface, it would appear that they would rather shell out money for the newest smartphone or cruelty-free tote bag than a masterfully crafted automobile. According to a recent press release from Ford, however, the Focus ST is quickly gaining a reputation as the car choice for young people.

The editors at Up To Speed aren’t concerned about the presumed lack of appetite for cars found in the youth of America. We know the insatiable hunger that we share for all things automotive is alive and well – and the fact that younger, more affluent buyers are showing interest in the Focus ST is a ray of hope for their generation. What is it, though, that is drawing younger drivers to this particular model? Are young people not interested in big, expensive cars anymore, or are they just not interested in what most auto companies are bringing to the table? Continue reading
