After its big redesign, back in 2014, Kia’s Sedona hasn’t received much updates, and 2017 model year will not bring much also. Minivan generations last for a long time, and it is usually 8-year cycle period for the Sedona. Therefore, facelift of the model can be expected in the mid time, which is for 2018 model year, while 2017 Kia Sedona is expected to slightly improved, with changes regarding features. Previous model brought rearview camera as standard feature on each trim, heated front seats for the middle trim and upper trims gained possibility to have 8 seats.
2017 Honda Ridgeline will come fully redesigned, although the model was expected to emerge earlier. 2015 calendar year is not over yet, and 2016 models are not fully revealed, but car fans are eager to see further into the future. Honda’s Ridgeline will probably miss the 2016 model year, in order to come fully refreshed and redesigned for the 2017th. This news didn’t come as a surprise for the sources close to the company, since Honda didn’t make announcements about when we can expect the new Ridgeline.
Fully redesigned for 2015 model year, 2017 GMC Canyon doesn’t bring a lot of exciting news. For previous, 2016 MY it gained the Denali trim, and became the part of the Denali family. This time around, GMC will probably keep majority of the Canyon style and features. Changes that we could expect will probably affect the standard equipment on trims, however, nothing significant is announced or expected.
Ever since its discontinuation back in 2013, the rumors about return of the Escalade EXT appeared online. New generation of the regular Escalade SUV started with this model year, while its EXT pickup version should make a comeback with 2017 model year. Originally the rumors stated that we could see even 2016 version of the model. However, this doesn’t seem to be true, since the model is still not confirmed, and we are approaching end of this, 2015 year, when majority of automakers presents their new models. 2017 Cadillac Escalade EXT now seems like the most probable option.
2017 Nissan Titan will be mainly carried over. Its big redesign is done for the previous, 2016 model, when Nissan revealed new look and engine of its Titan pickup. These improvements made a big impact on Titan’s performance, and apparel. Better aerodynamic is achieved trough exterior styling improvements, enabled Titan less air resistance during the ride, and easier glide through it. The biggest news was the diesel engine added for 2016 Nissan Titan.
Previous model year brought new generation for one of the most popular pickup trucks in the world. Tacoma has been on the market from 1995, and it has achieved great results in the US. 2017 Toyota Tacoma will stay pretty much unchanged, due to the fact that 2016 MY brought new generation and with it, big redesign of the model. In January this year, at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Japanese multinational automaker revealed newly redesigned Tacoma which gathered sympathies of many people.
Since the model will get a small facelift for 2016 model year, 2017 Ford Ranger will probably be available in the same variant as its predecessor. It is hard to talks about precise details regarding engine specs, since Ford hasn’t revealed the 2016 model still, but information are available. Automakers usually make a plan of their future facelifts and redesigns, so it is easier to keep up. Ranger is one of the best-sellers from Ford’s truck line-up, and is one of the models with widest sale market.
Tundra is one of the most-talked about models from Toyota’s pickup truck line up. Its second generation is coming to an end, and the model is closing up to its big redesign. If 2016 model year, which is just around the corner, doesn’t bring much-awaited new design and engines, than 2017 Toyota Tundra most definitely will. For the moment, it seems like 2016 Tundra is more likely to be launched fresh and redesigned. Whatever is the case, here are the closest specs of the 2017 Toyota Tundra:
Nissan’s minivan Quest has been on the market since 1992, and it is currently in its fourth generation which started back in 2011. Since Japanese manufacturer switched generations of the MPV every five years, we can expect 2016 Nissan Quest to come fully redesigned. With upgrades made on the exterior and interior, this automaker may also introduce some changes on the performance of the model. Whether it will be some power boost, additional engine or change of the current one is left to see.
