Meneroka perkara yang menjadikan Volvo 850 Turbo

Ditulis oleh Angelo998 dipublikasikan pada 04-11-2022 pukul 14

Wapcar Automotive News – Volvo mempunyai sejarah menghasilkan kereta yang berkotak dan bijak. Oleh itu, apabila pembuat kereta Volvo itu ingin mengubah imejnya kembali pada awal 90-an, ia mengeluarkan 850, yang tidak seperti apa yang pernah dibuat oleh syarikat sebelum ini: ia sporty, menarik dan pantas. 850 juga merupakan kereta pertama Doug DeMuro, dan kita semua tahu bagaimana kerjaya automotifnya berkembang sejak itu. Jelas sekali, dia tidak mungkin salah. Inilah yang menjadikan memiliki 850 Turbo begitu istimewa – dan sebab ia merupakan tambahan pertama yang sempurna untuk mana-mana garaj kepala gear.

 

Dalaman

 

Bahagian dalam Volvo 850 adalah tempat yang selesa untuk dikunjungi. Kerusi elektrik dan kulit yang dipanaskan adalah yang terbaik yang pernah anda duduki, manakala semua butang dan tombol analog mudah dicari dan bersudut ke arah pemandu. Kelompok instrumen mempunyai tolok rangsangan stok yang anda suka bermain. Memandu 850 Turbo adalah pengalaman yang unik. Terdapat hanya selang pengecas turbo yang cukup untuk memberikannya watak, sambil tidak menjadi beban apabila anda memerlukan kuasa yang tersedia dengan segera. Nota enjinnya menarik; ia bermula dengan kasar pada kelajuan yang lebih rendah, tetapi padang perlahan-lahan naik dengan putaran, mendedahkan keseluruhan spektrum bunyi semasa anda melalui gear – yang boleh anda lakukan sendiri. Turbo tersedia dengan transmisi manual lima kelajuan M56, yang bermaksud anda juga boleh belajar cara memandu kayu. Kotak gear automatik empat kelajuan dengan mod peralihan sukan, ekonomi dan musim sejuk juga tersedia jika anda lebih suka pengalaman pemanduan anda lebih santai.

 

Keselamatan Untuk Hari-hari

 

Mari kita hadapi - ini adalah kereta pertama anda. Kemungkinan anda akan terhempas ke dalam parit pada satu ketika, dan oleh itu anda akan menginginkan kenderaan yang akan membelakangi anda jika anda berbuat demikian. Volvo menetapkan bar untuk keselamatan dengan keretanya dan 850 tidak berbeza. Ia didatangkan dengan satu tan ciri keselamatan pasif, tidak kurang daripadanya ialah sistem perlindungan kesan sampingan SIPS bersepadu dan mekanisme tali pinggang keselamatan boleh laras ketinggian automatik ARH (dua "pertama dunia" pada masa pelancaran).

 

Pemanduan gerabak Volvo 850 Turbo merah 1994.

 

Pengendalian 850 adalah kukuh, jika tidak menakjubkan. Penggantungan berada pada bahagian yang keras dan terdapat jumlah lilitan badan yang agak banyak, tetapi ia sentiasa boleh diramal dan dikawal. Satu lagi "dunia pertama" ialah suspensi belakang Delta Link separa aktif, yang membantu dengan kestabilan pada kelajuan lebuh raya. Dan, ia adalah pacuan roda hadapan, bermakna pemandu yang bersemangat tetapi tidak berpengalaman kurang berkemungkinan untuk menangkap ikan ke dalam pokok. Prestasi brek adalah baik walaupun pedal brek kaku, dan ABS adalah standard pada semua model.

 

Ia Ada Street-Cred

 

Jika anda melihat definisi "tidur" dalam kamus, 850 Turbo mungkin akan muncul. Ini bermakna ia secara amnya tidak akan menarik banyak perhatian, namun, mereka yang tahu perkara itu berkemungkinan menghalang anda di jalan atau di pam untuk bertanya soalan mengenainya. Kadang-kadang, orang yang melihat akan menggesa anda untuk meletakkan kaki anda supaya mereka dapat mendengar nota ekzos yang hebat. Jangan harap untuk mendapat perhatian daripada wanita - kebanyakannya nampaknya mengelirukan station wagon dengan van jenazah. "Bata Terbang" juga mempunyai silsilah perlumbaan, dalam kedua-dua bentuk gerabak dan sedan. Ia bersaing dalam Kejohanan Kereta Jelajah British (BTCC) edisi 1994 hingga 1996, di mana ia mencapai keputusan yang baik, terutamanya di tangan Rickard Rydell.

 

Terdapat Banyak Ruang Untuk Aktiviti

 

Seorang dewasa muda berkemungkinan menjalani kehidupan yang aktif, dan 850 ialah teman yang sempurna untuk pengembaraan anda. Penggemar kereta akan lebih suka versi station wagon, dan dengan alasan yang kukuh. Ia boleh memuatkan tujuh orang, bermakna anda boleh membawa semua rakan anda dalam perjalanan jauh. Tempat duduk belakang dilipat rata, menampakkan ruang besar yang boleh berfungsi sebagai katil dalam secubit. Dengan tempat duduk penumpang hadapan juga dilipat, anda boleh membawa apa sahaja, daripada satu set ski hingga papan luncur.

 

Ia Agak Cepat, Juga

 

Di tengah-tengah 850 Turbo adalah rangkaian pemanduannya yang menakjubkan. Enjin 20-injap, 2.3 liter sebaris-lima, all-aluminium yang dipasang secara melintang, pengecas turbo dan intercooler (satu lagi "dunia pertama") menghasilkan 222 kuda di A.S.-trim dengan transmisi automatik. Pecutan ke 60 mph mengambil masa sekitar tujuh saat, sehingga ke kelajuan tertinggi sekitar 158 MPH, manakala suku batu mengambil masa lebih 15 saat. Ini bermakna ia adabanyak prestasi untuk digabungkan menjadi lebuh raya yang sibuk dengan mudah dan selamat, tetapi juga tidak akan menyebabkan rambut anda terbakar - atau syarikat insurans anda. Keluarga Volvo Modular "blok putih" adalah genesis enjin Ford Focus RS500, yang memberikan hampir 350 kuasa kuda. Itulah potensi yang ada pada drivetrain ini, bermakna anda boleh menaik tarafnya untuk membina lebih banyak kuasa di jalan raya jika itu perkara anda.

 

Ia Murah, Tetapi Mungkin Tidak Lebih Lama

 

850 Turbo kini berusia lebih 25 tahun, tetapi masih tidak betul-betul menguasai harga kereta klasik. Ini bermakna model keadaan baik boleh didapati dengan mudah selepas beberapa bulan menyimpan atau sedikit bantuan daripada ibu bapa yang prihatin. Sudah tentu, 850 yang baru dibeli berkemungkinan memerlukan beberapa TLC kerana usianya, tetapi itu bukan isu besar memandangkan betapa mudahnya untuk bekerja pada diri sendiri. Ia bukan sahaja kereta pemandu pertama yang hebat, ia juga merupakan kereta pertama mekanik rumah yang bercita-cita tinggi: malah penggantian tali pinggang masa yang agak rumit hanya mengambil masa beberapa jam di jalan masuk dengan alatan asas dan satu set tangan yang membantu. Apa yang lebih baik, ia hanya mungkin menghargai nilai. Keadaan pudina 850 T-5R dan 850R sudah boleh mencecah sehingga 25,000 dolar, dan Turbo yang lebih asas mungkin akan mendapat lebih banyak permintaan apabila orang ramai mula melihatnya untuk apa sebenarnya – klasik abadi yang tidak merugikan. Dengan kesannya, tidak pernah ada masa yang lebih baik untuk membeli satu.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Vs. 2022 Infiniti QX80

Ditulis oleh Angelo998 dipublikasikan pada 03-11-2022 pukul 16

 

Wapcar Automotive News – At first, the comparison between the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer and the Infiniti QX80 (2004 DO8) might seem unfair. My Grand Wagoneer trial started at $94,845 - $109,025 with all options - compared to the QX80's starting MSRP of $84,850, $87,985 download. As Sidney Greenstreet said in "The Maltese Falcon," "It's hard to be fair, sir."

 

However, the smaller, cheaper QX80 still stands up against the more glamorous and better-equipped Grand Wagoneer, based on a week-long test of each. Here is my conclusion after careful evaluation, notes, and review of the photos I have taken. Infiniti Malaysia has gained great reputation on the market.

 

It's not a contest. The Grand Wagoneer is suitable for a king, a head of state or a movie star. He shouted "Whole class!" "Style !" and "Swank!" from every pore. It actually has more in common with Cadillac's Escalade than it does with the glamorous but not-so-great QX80.

 

Given that luxury generosity is indeed the goal of the Grand Wagoneer, you can't really go wrong in that respect. However, the QX80 is the leader of the two, and in the real world, it's also easier to maneuver, handle, park, and get in and out, although the Grand Wagoneer's automatic step-up/down did is a welcome assistant. The QX80 is also slightly shorter.

 

It's also important to note that these tests took place in two cities - Yonkers and New York - and under these conditions, Lean was better. If you live in the country, this may not be a problem for you, but even people in the country frequent the parking lots of Walmart, Walgreens, and Applebees.

 

As noted above, there's a $9,995 difference between the two rides, with the QX80 being the cheaper choice. I can think of a few things I could do with $9,995 that I would save by choosing the QX80.

 

Mileage: Tied

QX80 and Jeep Grand Wagoneer both report mileage at an intense 15 MPG city/highway combined.

 

Ride comfort: QX80

We were thoroughly pampered in the Grand Wagoneer's large, sumptuous interior, but two of my passengers complained about rough rides on busy roads. Yonkers county and the potholes of 9th Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For over $100,000, the ride will be as smooth as glass. That said, the tall and tall among us will be welcome in the Wagoneer, with wider seats and more headroom.

 

Handling - Grand Wagoneer

There was a surprising find. The QX80 has a (slightly) larger turning radius, so its ability to turn around or get into tight spots isn't as strong as the Wagoneers, despite being the smallest of them all. Other than that, each car handles pretty well - just as good. You can't push cars like this across the streets and highways without an instant response from the steering wheel. It's nice to feel good control of both vehicles when moving around.

 

Engine: The Grand Wagoneer

QX80 has a lightweight 5.6-liter V8 with 300 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, while the Grand Wagoneer has a 6.4-liter V8 with 471 hp. mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive as standard. (There are, however, a limited number of models available with the 510-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six.)

 

Infotainment and Technology:

Grand Wagoneer

Both systems worked well quickly without having to consult the owner's manual, thank goodness. But the Grand Wagoneer goes ahead with rich, vibrant colors, and the center console offers a 12.0-inch center touchscreen that sits atop a 10.3-inch touchscreen, with controls for the system. your HVAC.

 

On the Series II option, passengers have their own 10.3 touchscreens. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and USB ports are offered in all three rows, and second-row passengers get another 10.3-inch touchscreen between the captain's seats; The rear entertainment system option adds a pair of 10.1-inch touchscreens.

 

Safety and Driver Assistance Features - Tie

Both vehicles have the necessary safety equipment to keep you safe on the road, including but not limited to adaptive cruise control, function self parking and night vision with pedestrian and animal detection. The Grand Wagoneer has a digital rearview mirror that some people love, but I don't have, so I switched it back to the good old analog.

 

Conclusion: The Grand Wagoneer will suit those looking to impress their neighbors and business partners, but the QX80 is also more powerful and less expensive.

My experience buying & maintaining a used KTM Duke 390

Ditulis oleh Angelo998 dipublikasikan pada 03-11-2022 pukul 13

Autofun Philippines – In 2020, I decided to buy a bike, I considered buying a new Duke 390, after thinking and consulting, I decided to buy a used 1st gen 390 because it will be better choice because I like the nature and characteristics of the first generation. .

 

So in July the search started by browsing Olx, Team-bhp classifieds site, Instagram and others. Most of the results shown didn't impress me because they were shady, too expensive, too pretty to be a real example, the good ones sold out before I could trade.

 

At the end of July, I asked my dear friend that I was looking for a used 390, and luckily he knew someone around him who was selling his Duke 390 and it are on a budget. So we decided to test the bike on August 2nd. And verify if I can accept the KTM Duke 390 price Philippines.

 

On a beautiful afternoon on August 2, both of us went to check the bike together, reached the location, met the owner and talked, he led us to the place and started to check the bike. After checking, we are both sure that the overall condition of the car is good, the ODO rating is 13700, the only spare accessory is the Bosch horn, and the other two are the power connection battery and danger light that he kept.

 

Satisfied with the bike, I check the papers all clear. The owner said that the clutch needed to be replaced, and that amount was deducted, the asking price for the 1.2L bike because the owner was a well known and mutual friend, and the price was reduced to 95 000 , including clutch work. Pay the crypto and take the bike to his new home, the rest paid next week.

 

The history of the motorcycle

The history of the motorcycle is a mystery, the first owner was a Parsi rider who bought it on March 13, 2014 and it has barely been used. In use until 2017, it has run about 6 km. The dashboard was changed somewhere around 2016, the ODO reading on the instrument cluster and ECU is disabled after 2000 km.

 

There are no service records for the bike in the system from 2014 to 2017. When the bike was purchased by the second owner, it was serviced at SVC and all the records were there. The mystery of the car is that the chassis number was changed for some reason by the first owner and the documentation of the change was there so it turned out to be a relief and the transfer took place without fail. no problem.

 

Engine

The engine is a 373cc cylinder that produces 43 hp and 33 Nm of torque. It's a high-rpm engine and silver raw power paired with a smooth transmission. This car has a bit of bad luck below 3000 rpm at 30 km/h in 2nd gear combined with heavy clutches. 

 

Beyond 3k it pulls easily and once it hits the sweet spot of 4.4k to 7k it becomes another animal it rejects the rider and wants to drive in almost any gear, even at the sweet spot, it can ride calmly with smooth throttle input combined with the throttle wire, which in my opinion makes for a direct connection with the rider and the bike. 

 

Neutral misalignments are rare, and if they do, it's because the clutch isn't properly engaged or isn't matching the revs. Neutral is easy to find, just squeeze the gear lever slightly. On the contrary 1st to 2nd need a little more force, the remaining grooves of the gears are nice and smooth. 

 

The downside to the nature of the engine is that in traffic, most of the heat from the engine will transfer to the legs and inner thighs, which can become very uncomfortable. The only advantage of the heat is that if it rains and the pants get wet, they can be used to dry it.

 

Note when discharging is very hoarse, loud, heavy and low at idle, when in motion it becomes soft and has a slight whine. When pedaling hard, its sound becomes aggressive, when downshifting, it has a combination of groans and small pops.

 

Ergonomics

 

The rider sits upright with a slight forward tilt, comfortable foot position, and moderate rider triangle. Gripping the tank by the knee is quite easy and adding a handle to the tank will make you more comfortable and confident. Hands fit on the handlebars easily and without discomfort to wrists and arms.

 

The stock mirrors on the first-generation Dukes are hopeless and offer barely a glimpse of what's behind you, need to check your shoulders to make sure there are no surprises pending. I replaced the mirror with an ADV 390 mirror and there is a significant improvement over the old mirror because the body is taller and wider than the old mirror.

 

The side soles are easy to use and easy to find, if the shoe has a nice horizontal groove, the sole can be used to insert and install it on the stand.

 

Switchgear and instrumentation assemblies

 

The switchgear layout is a basic Bajaj pulsar layout with backlit buttons, the only difference being that the KTMs are white and the Bajaj has blue. 

 

The instrument cluster has a nice orange backlight and displays a large amount of information such as distance traveled, mileage remaining for the next service, time and average speed, distance covered and more so again. It includes two daily counters and a clock that is very difficult to set up. If any problem is detected in the bike, it will show it. Readability in normal driving and at night shouldn't be an issue, but if you're driving on a sunny day, reading what's going on becomes difficult.

2023 Mitsubishi Xpander won't let you indifferent

Ditulis oleh Angelo998 dipublikasikan pada 03-11-2022 pukul 13

Wapcar Automotive News – Because everything has to be an SUV one day or another, the Mitsubishi Xpander 2023 new model:Cross is a tall van and has a bit of a tough look. It was launched less than three years ago and is getting a makeover. Don't forget that Mitsu has a long history in heavy-duty transport, as the Delica has been around for decades, having all-wheel drive while sending power to the front wheels only.

 

The facelift introduced today brings some changes, but the floor van still looks as polarizing as before. Unveiled at the 2022 Indonesia International Motor Show and already sold out, the Xpander Cross features a redesigned front end with new headlights that continue to have a split layout but a T-shaped layout. The turn signals have been moved to the upper cluster for better visibility while the hood is now thicker than before.

 

Dressed in a new gunmetal green paint job, the newly improved mid-size pickup features a total of 95 mm (3.7 inches) extended front and rear overhangs. . The new (and still rather small) 17-inch alloy wheels come in two tones with gray accents to match the front and rear sliding panels and door trim. The 'T' pattern we see at the front is noticeable at the rear in the updated taillights, giving the Xpander Cross a more modern look.

 

With a minimum ground clearance of 220 mm (8.6 inches), the family car should be able to handle bumpy roads with ease, but keep in mind that this is not a car. whole ground. With the mid-cycle refresh, it comes equipped with Mitsubishi's proprietary Active Cruise Control (YAC), but it's clearly not the active rear differential like on the Evo. Instead, it applies braking force to the front wheels to improve cornering, depending on steering angle, braking force, longitudinal G-force, pinch speed and wheel speed.

 

Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Xpander Cross 2023 has an electric parking brake, a digital instrument panel and a larger touchscreen now measuring 8 inches. The old-fashioned climate controls have been replaced with screens, while a wireless charger has also been added. We see here the version with the CVT, but the model is also offered with a five-speed manual transmission. Equipped with a clutch pedal, the model has a slightly higher ground clearance of 225 mm (8.8 in).

 

Power is provided by a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter petrol engine with 103 hp (77 kW) and 141 Nm (104 lb-ft) of torque, so it's definitely not the car. Fastest van on the market. Still, it's a solid choice for a family looking to buy a versatile, affordable car with three rows of seats, as long as they don't mind the front design...
