2017 Closing of Palace of Auburn Hills vs. Pontiac Silverdome vs. Tiger Stadium in MI

The Detroit Pistons home for nearly 30 years, the Palace of Auburn Hills, hosted its last home NBA game in April, and it’s another end of an era.  We’ve seen other major Detroit pro sports arenas shut down and stop hosting games the past several years, as we’ve gotten nice new venues in their place.  But we’d like to take a stroll down memory lane and see the great treasure troves of history these former stadiums have to show off.

Stick around, won’t you, and see our recap of the history of the former homes of the Detroit Pistons, Red Wings, Lions and Tigers!

2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Electric Mode Release Date and Specs 

We’ve seen previews for 2018 Kia vehicles like the Stinger sports car, and more recently the revamped 2018 Rio subcompact, but now we have a sneak peek at the next level of Kia’s alternate fuel vehicles with the 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.  This new model takes the supreme fuel economy of the 2017 Niro, which checks in at 50 combined MPG for its base FE trim, and adds an all-electric component which will take your fuel savings (to borrow from the popular Fat Joe/Remy Ma song) “all the way up.”

We’ll look at the features of the 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, and give you a street release date for this vehicle, so stay tuned!

2018 Kia Rio and 2018 Rio 5-Door New York debut release details and specs

2018 Kia Rio Subcompact and 5-Door Hatchback Debut and Release Date

What do you think is the best-selling Kia model globally?  The Kia Soul?  The Kia Optima?  Or perhaps the Kia Sorento?  Those all sell well, especially here in the US, where there have been strong marketing campaigns with celebrities galore for all three of them.  But if you take into account the entire globe – including Canada, South Korea, and all of Europe – the best-selling Kia in recent years has been the lovable Rio subcompact.

Now that we’re about to embark on a new model year, it’s fitting that some of the first Kia models for 2018 to hit auto shows will be the 2018 Rio and 2018 Rio 5-Door, both of which hit the New York International Auto Show, open to the public April 14-23, 2017.  We’ll look at the features that will surely keep the winning streak alive for this model that is small in size but large and in charge when it comes to features and value!
