Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 BMW Z4

Motortrend Magazine News - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 9:50pm

Take a look at BMW’s Z series, which stretches all the way back to 1989 with the Z1, and you’ll see a few common design themes across the entire lineup. But you’ll see a more obvious design lineage when you look at just the Z3 and last two Z4s. The 2019 BMW Z4 diverges slightly from that lineage, as it ushers in a new design language that’s distinct from its predecessors and even other modern BMWs. But is the brand’s roadster on the right track with this new look? Read on and decide for yourself.

When the production 2019 BMW Z4 debuted in Monterey this week, we only got to see it in M40i First Edition spec. We won’t see the lower 30i trim until closer to its spring 2019 debut, but we don’t imagine too much will change styling-wise. The new Z4 stays pretty true to the concept that debuted at Pebble Beach last year, continuing to sport a stacked headlight arrangement instead of the side-by-side layout seen on virtually every other BMW. The brand’s signature dual kidney grilles remain, but instead of vertical slats they get a 3-D mesh pattern finished in black. Several on staff have compared the look to the Kia Stinger’s “tiger nose” grille.

Looking at both cars from the side with the top up, you’ll notice one big difference: the Z4 has abandoned the power retractable hardtop of the previous model and gone back to a soft top. As such, the look is very different. For a soft top, the new Z4’s cloth roof does a reasonably good job of mimicking a coupe roofline. But it just can’t compete with the sensuous curves of the last-gen Z4’s folding hardtop. The last-gen car also benefits from a longer dash-to-axle, which gives it more cab-rearward proportions. And sadly, likely due to pedestrian crash safety standards, the 2019 Z4 gets a blunted front end instead of the shark nose that made the concept so good-looking. The pendulum starts to swing slightly in the new Z4’s favor when you look at the details, however. A large fender vent can be seen behind the front wheels, where character lines begin and sweep across the doors. Both cars have trunk lids with molded ducktail spoilers, but the one on the 2019 is more pronounced.

There’s no mistaking which car is the new model when looking at them from behind. The 2019 Z4 gets slim taillights that slant inward as they stretch across the trunk lid, but they also appear to slope off of the car’s rear end. In contrast, the outgoing roadster has rounder taillights that aren’t nearly as wide. Both cars feature heavily sculpted rear ends, but the new Z4’s is more dramatic. Time will tell if the look still holds up a decade or so down the road.

The 2019 BMW Z4’s interior is pretty standard fare as modern BMWs come, but there’s a new digital gauge cluster and wide touchscreen display to up the roadster’s tech game. Meanwhile, the old Z4’s cabin looks its age, with a last-gen infotainment screen and a radio display with red graphics, a trait that used to be a BMW trademark. But the outgoing Z4 was unique in how it laid out its HVAC controls. In the center of the dash are four circles, with the outer ones being dials for dual-zone climate control and the inner ones being clusters of buttons for fan speed, vent selection, recirculate, and window/mirror defrosters.

So does the 2019 BMW Z4’s design surpass that of the last model? Tell us in the comments on Facebook!

Land Rover Announces Pet Accessories for National Dog Day

Motortrend Magazine News - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 6:31pm

In celebration of National Dog Day (or International Dog Appreciation Day if you live outside the U.S.) on August 26, Land Rover has announced a line of pet accessories built especially for its vehicles. Land Rover has grouped these accessories into packs, which will be available this winter.

The Pet Load Space Protection pack includes a spill-resistant water bowl, a full-height luggage partition, and a quilted load space liner that protects the floor, rear seatbacks, and side walls from paw prints. Buyers who opt for the Pet Transportation pack get a foldable pet carrier, load space rubber mat, and the spill-resistant water bowl.

The Pet Car and Access Pack bundles together the quilted load space liner, luggage partition, and a ramp that helps dogs get into the load area. This ramp, which can support pooches up to 187 pounds, has a high grip tread pattern to prevent slippage. Also included in this package is a portable rinse system for washing off those paws after a day outdoors. It holds up to 1.7 gallons of water, which Land Rover says should be enough for a five-minute shower. It could also be enough rinsing time to save your interior from mud-slinging wet-dog shakes.

Land Rover is bringing the Pet Packs to every single model in its lineup in the U.S. That includes the Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport, in addition to the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, and Range Rover Evoque. Buyers who don’t want to splurge for one of the three packs can purchase the accessories individually.

Check out the gallery below to see the new gear in action, but mostly to see cute dogs in SUVs.

2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition Wears Famed Gulf Livery

Motortrend Magazine News - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 4:00pm

Ford is debuting yet another GT Heritage Edition to pay tribute to the GT40s that swept Le Mans from 1966 to 1969. This model wears the famous Gulf Oil livery and comes with unique interior appointments that honor Ford’s racing past. Owners have already started painting their GTs in Gulf colors, but this is the first new Ford GT to get the iconic livery from the factory.

Along with the special paint job, the Heritage Edition features exposed carbon-fiber A-pillars. Silver mirror caps, 20-inch high-gloss dark gray wheels, and orange Brembo brake calipers finish off the exterior.

Inside, you’ll find Ebony Alcantara materials as well as contrast blue and orange stitching. There are dark stainless appliques accenting the instrument panel and other areas, while the door sills are accented in exposed matte carbon fiber. The seats have been embossed to resemble the original 1968 Le Mans-winning car. Like other Heritage Editions, this model features a unique identification plaque.

Ford will offer this special edition for two years. It will be available in limited quantities, of course, as Ford has only committed to making 1,000 total copies of the GT.

Buyers can opt for a package that adds exposed carbon-fiber roundels on the exterior and interior. Model-year 2019 vehicles will receive No. 9 graphics on the hood and doors, while 2020 models will get No. 6 graphics, honoring the same car that won Le Mans in 1969 with a different number.
