When It Hits: Word is that the anticipated official introduction of the ’13 Dodge Challenger could occur during the 2013 North American International Auto Show.

When It Hits: Automotive News reported that Nissan would offer a lower-priced version of the Leaf for the ’13 model year. It should reach dealerships late in the first quarter of 2013.

What We Hear: The so-called ’13-model facelift appears to be modified headlights in the same headlamp assembly. The design provides more of a streamlined look, and it appears that the more expensive LEDs are gone in favor of traditional bulbs.
