2014 ACURA ILX:  Originally making its world debut two years ago at the Chicago Auto Show as a 2013 model, the Acura ILX compact sedan receives eight new standard features for 2014, and continues as the gateway into the Acura brand. Upgrades include standard 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels with al-season tires, and a cabin that now includes new leather seating surfaces and leatherette door liners, as well, eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats and a Multi-Angle rearview camera. Enhanced audio and electronics boost the ride experience with new subwoofer and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system, all included in the MSRP of $26,900. The base ’14 ILX is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 150 horsepower and comes paired with a Sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission. For those who seek a more vigorous driving experience, there is a 2.4-liter with an output of 201hp, mated to a standard close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox. Marking the introduction of Acura's first ever hybrid model, the ILX Hybrid combines the use of a 1.5-liter inline engine and an Integrated Motor Assist electric motor that together generates 111 hp. The Hybrid is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and depending on which powertrain you chose, the ILX offers EPA highway ratings ranging from 29 to 38 mpg. For 2014, there are a number of new, high-value features, including a smart entry keyless access system and pushbutton start, along with Pandora internet radio interface and SMS text message function for smart connectivity with the world. The new ILX is manufactured exclusively by Honda in its Greensburg, Indiana plant.

#FlashbackFriday to a cartoon from the Pope Manufacturing Co. in Hartford that ran during the 1907 Chicago Auto Show. It shows a horde of salesmen all vying for the attention of the prospective buyer who has loads of money. The ad concludes that the gentleman chose the 1907 Pope-Hartford. Can you guess how much it sold for
