Speaking of styling, Nissan's Fred Diaz denied when asked by Automotive News that the redesigned 2016 Titan was intended to look like a Ford F-150.

What would a week be without recalls? Jaguar Land Rover issued a recall for around 62,000 vehicles with faulty air bags (that at least don't explode); Mercedes-Benz called for repairs on a hefty list of models that total 147,224 cars; and GM launched a safety campaign for 67,000 Cadillac ATS sedans with overly sensitive sunroof controls.
Fiat Chrysler announced two recalls, one of which is for 26,000 Chrysler 200s that have issues shifting into park.
In related news, the death count in GM vehicles reached 57 people.
