Latest Details: Due to the shooting angle and the light passing through heavy camouflage, the photographers were able to get a look at what’s going on with this Mustang prototype’s front end. There is some hint of the headlights and some flavor of the grille that resides behind the heavy, squared-off disguising.
Latest Details: The updated Cayenne has more angular headlights and reshaped frontal intakes, along with new LED strips that are now integrated into the wide-set intakes. A new PHEV Cayenne is expected to be made available with the mid-cycle facelift, and there are rumors that the PHEV Cayenne will follow a 3.0L direct-injected, supercharged V6 with a 100hp electric motor, generating a combined 420 hp. A twin-turbocharged V8 diesel is also planned for the U.S. market.
Latest Details: Nissan’s next Titan—shot here testing in the Rockies—appears heavily modified from the A-pillar forward, and a larger grille and redesigned front bumper are well hidden under the camouflage. The headlights are set high and very wide, forcing large protrusions on the front fascia, which suggests increased width over the current truck. The ’15 Titan is expected to offer a Cummins 2.8L diesel engine. A regular cab Titan will also be offered, along with a greater focus on work trucks.
Latest Details: This Dodge Dart, carrying a disguise that has been redesigned since its public debut in 2012, is a bit of a mystery. No obvious changes are discernible beneath the camo, which made pinpointing the nature of this test car difficult for photographers. The shooters provided these three possibilities: It could be a standard Dart designed for consumer clinics; it could be an early prototype for a mid-cycle facelift; or it could be a special-edition Dart, perhaps a Dart SRT-4.
