Mazda has updated the CX-5 crossover for 2022. The first changes you’ll likely notice are the styling. Mazda has added a new grille and grille treatment along with thinner headlights. A new lower fascia completes the look up front and there are similar changes to the rear. A new Sport Appearance Package adds gloss black finishes to the exterior while the Signature trim swaps grey cladding for body-colour exterior trim and accents. Under the skin, changes include a revised suspension for reduced road noise and better ride comfort as well as increased chassis rigidity and a more responsive six-speed automatic. Mazda has also made all-wheel drive standard on all CX-5 models.

Ford has started building pre-production versions of the F-150 Lightning electric pickup. That brings the model even closer to series production and to putting the first owners behind the wheel. Ford says that it has invested an additional $250m into the facilities that will build the truck and adding 450 direct jobs and is now expecting to be able to produce up to 80,000 EV pickups a year. Ford says it has more than 150,000 reservations for the truck, with deliveries to the first customers expected to happen in spring 2022.

Electric vehicle start-up Lucid now has an official EPA range figure for its Lucid Air Dream Edition R and the Dream Edition P. It’s a strong figure, as well, with the R now the longest-range electric vehicle the EPA has rated to date. The official figure is 520 miles. That’s 842 km on a single charge for the 933 hp electric sedan when equipped with the 19-inch wheels. Performance edition models with 1,111 hp have a range estimate of up to 763 km with the 800 hp Lucid Air Grand Touring on 19-inch wheels seeing an official 836 km estimate.

Nissan is offering a special T-Spec trim to the GT-R lineup and it comes with a pair of iconic GT-R colours. The model sits above GT-R Premium and adds wider front fenders from the previous Track Edition, gold-paint Rays wheels, carbon spoiler, and other special badging. The 565 hp AWD supercar-killer will also get carbon-ceramic brakes with ducting from the Nismo. The really special bits, though, are the colours. Millennium Jade is the lighter of the two, first offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür. Only 156 were sold in that spec and colour, which has never been offered on a GT-R in Canada. The second is Midnight Purple, a modern interpretation of Midnight Purple III, offered on just 132 examples of the R34 V-Spec car. Pricing for the limited-edition ride starts from $162,498.
