Infiniti Excites Us (Not) In Los Angeles With Edition 30 Models

Infiniti won’t be bringing the QX55 coupe crossover to the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and is instead relying on an armada of Edition 30 special editions to get some time under the limelight. Getting the special trim treatment are the brand's most popular models, namely the Q50, Q60, QX50, QX60 and QX80.

Some Nikon Dslr Cameras Might Be Replaced With Mirrorless Models

Some Nikon DSLR Cameras Might Be Replaced With Mirrorless Models

DSLRs were the cameras that many professionals used back in the day, but then mirrorless cameras came along and the game was changed. This is because mirrorless cameras are smaller and lighter than DSLRs, making them more ideal to be carried around, plus with some of them sporting full-frame capabilities, some pros have actually replaced their DSLRs with mirrorless cameras.

This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that maybe Nikon could be considering something similar as well. According to a report from Nikon Rumors, they have heard that there might be some Nikon DSLR models that will not be replaced with newer DSLR models. Instead, they believe that these models could actually be replaced by mirrorless cameras. This includes the Nikon D3500, the D5600, and the D500.

Toyota Adding Automatic Engine Shutoff And Automatic Park To Many 2020 Models

Toyota adding automatic engine shutoff and automatic park to many 2020 models

Toyota intends to further enhance the safety of its 2020 models with two new customer protection features for the North American market: automatic engine shutoff and automatic park. For cars equipped with the carmaker's Smart Key System keyless entry, automatic engine shutoff does exactly what it says "after a pre-determined period of time in the event the vehicle is left running." Toyotas with keyless entry already sound a chime and provide a visual warning about a running engine; the new system enhances those two cautions as well.

Toyota didn't specify how long is "a pre-determined time." Nor did it explain if this will operate when the car is idling but there's a driver in the vehicle, or if it's only when the car detects the driver leaving. A New York Times story last year noted the deaths of some 28 drivers over 12 years, in which the drivers unintentionally left their cars running in their garages. The reason has been identified as "keyless" proximity fobs and push-button start, where owners, perhaps older drivers more accustomed to a keyed ignition, overlooked the fact they didn't turn off the engine, which flooded their homes with exhaust fumes.

Nissan To Celebrate 50 Years Of Z And Gt-r In New York With Special Models

Nissan to celebrate 50 years of Z and GT-R in New York with special models

The 2019 New York International Auto Show is only a few weeks away. While we won't really know what's in store until the show doors open at the Javits Center in Manhattan, expect a whole slew of teasers in the next few weeks. One of the first out of the gate is Nissan with a single image that has us excited for what's in store. The Japanese automaker plans to celebrate 50 years of performance with some special versions of the Nissan 370Z and Nissan GT-R in its "Dream Garage."

There are eight cars in the photo: one Datsun 240Z atop a new 370Z; two R34 Skyline GT-Rs atop a pair of new R35 GT-Rs; one 1973 Skyline GT-R (fewer than 200 were built over a single model year) atop a third R35 GT-R. The Z and GT-R both made their debuts 50 years ago in 1969. It's a bit difficult to tell with the shadows, but each car on the bottom row appears to mirror the paint scheme of its partner on the top. We're particularly excited for the bright blue Calsonic livery to appear on a modern GT-R.
