The next-generation Subaru WRX STI may boast as much as 400 horsepower from a re-tuned, 2.4L turbocharged boxer engine, making it the most powerful factory STI ever to be offered in America.
Forbes reports that an upgraded version of the engine currently offered in the three-row Subaru Ascent crossover will power the new model, rather than the 2.0-liter unit that powers the current WRX or the 2.5L found in the current STI.
Like clockwork, Polyphony Digital has released another free car pack for Gran Turismo Sport. This pack has quite the range of vehicles. Two of the highlights are the Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 and the Porsche 962C.
The former is the progenitor of the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86, and was sold in the U.S. as the Toyota Corolla GT-S. It featured a twin-cam four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive, and became particularly famous as the hero car in the Initial D anime and manga series. Oddly, this model has the digital instrument cluster, unlike the analog cluster in the Initial D car.
The larger, three-row Honda Pilot is a big crossover that's squarely aimed at families, with lots of minivan-inspired convenience features to make life with a car full of kids more livable. The two-row Honda Passport is essentially a shortened Pilot, with one less row of seats and a bit of an attitude adjustment. Honda is pushing the Passport as more of an adventure-ready crossover, although that doesn't mean the Passport is ready for the sort of ultra-rugged terrain a Toyota 4Runner can handle.
Instead, the Passport suggests a rugged, outdoorsy lifestyle with some sportier exterior accents, a slightly wider stance, and a little extra ground clearance. And it is the most rugged vehicle in Honda's lineup. Let's take a closer look.

Olympus has launched a wearable, augmented reality system that positions a tiny screen and camera near the wearer's eye. Called EyeTrek Insight, this open source device resembles Google Glass, but is larger and intended for enterprise applications rather than general consumer use. The wearable features a 2.4MP forward-facing camera and the maker's own Pupil-Division Optical System.
EyeTrek Insight is designed to attach to the ear pieces of a pair of glasses, whether they're prescription frames or safety glasses. The unit has an integrated touch bar enabling users to control the device using their finger, as well as an optional microphone attachment for issuing voice commands. Both WiFi and Bluetooth enable EyeTrek to connect with various networks and devices, and while the device has only a 1hr run time per charge, Olympus has an optional adapter for plugging the smart glasses into a USB power source.
Nissan announced the new Snow Plow Prep package for the Titan full-size pickup truck, which makes it compatible with a range of commercial and personal snow plows.
The new package replaces the front springs with heavier duty ones which increase the front gross axle weight rating capacity by 575 pounds (from 4,325lbs to 4,900lbs), enabling the fitment of snow plows up to 786lbs (in the case of the Titan XD Gas Crew Cab S model).

While the size of the new model's battery pack is equivalent to that of the previous model's battery pack, the battery capacity was increased from 30kWh to 40kWh.
[CEATEC 2017] As our natural resources aren't exactly unlimited, the world has started to look forwards renewable sources of energy, such as taking advantage of the wind, water, and sun to generate energy. Many tech companies are also working at creating greener and more sustainable products, such as Tesla.
The company had previously unveiled a power pack that homeowners could install in their homes that could serve to power the home as opposed to drawing energy from the grid. As it turns out, Honda has something similar that they are showing off at CEATEC 2017 in Japan this year that comes in the form of a mobile power pack.
It took Nissan a few months to take some of the gadgets of their X-Trail 4Dogs Concept and launch them under the 'Paw Pack'.
