Subaru Comes Through With A Brand New Brand You Never Knew Of

Firstly, Subaru, the brand, is creating a crossover wagon spin-off. It’s just that the vehicles are too popular to be kept aside under the Subaru banner alone. Why wouldn’t they or couldn’t they be happy with something more adventurous? Enter the Wilderness. The Outback is the first model from Wilderness and it’s intended to be amazing. At least, that’s what engineer/product planner/spokesperson for Subaru says. His name is Tim Wood. “For our performance cars we have STI as a halo brand, it’s a sub-brand, and we really wanted to have something like that for our SUVs and crossovers, and that’s where this Wilderness brand came from.”

Granted, the STI is supposedly a WRX built to perform best on rough surfaces. But with Wilderness, the Outback is really looking towards becoming more of a sub-brand that can withstand growth like you’ve never known. The Outback happens to be a well-to-do car that can handle adventures outside of the city. That would really be a stunning adventure, wouldn’t it? Adventuring outside of your comfort zone? As per usual, Subaru thought of everything. The Wilderness vehicles will likely be the start of a whole new beginning for Subaru. And who wouldn’t be able to tell?! The Outback WIlderness has almost an inch of ground clearance unlike anything anyone else has ever seen. The increase in ride height brings all sorts of new angles to the game.

The Subaru off-shoot has tough tires.

For example, they are Yokohama Geolander 225/65R-17s. They stay put together for longer amounts of time while also providing a spare tire in the back instead of a donut found on so many vehicles as of recent. Finally, the Wilderness also allows for a front skid plate as well as a 180-degree”Front View Monitor.” On top of this, there will be roof rails that can sustain as much as 700 pounds of weight. And that’s just static.

Rent Prices on the Rise Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Rent prices in 2020 have been impacted because of the pandemic. Initially, they dropped drastically. Now, moreover, the bars, restaurants, and other businesses are starting to reopen, however, the rent prices are going up again, this is according to analyst John Gillem with the CoStar Group. “In fact, we are looking at a 1% increase since pre-pandemic levels,” Gillem said. “Therefore, the rents are, in fact, starting to really trend upward.”

Rent Prices in Portland

Gillem says he has studied rental prices through the area of Portland Oregon as an analyst with the CoStar Group. “The suburbs will still have the best value if you are working remotely,” Gillem explained.

As a result of people moving to the suburbs for more space, rents dropped in Portland’s urban core last year, Gillem said. However, people are coming back to downtown as the COVID-19 pandemic does improve. Yet, the rents are still going up in the suburbs. In Hillsboro, the average is around $1,600. It was $1,400 before the pandemic.

Apartment Renting Increases

In Downtown Portland, the cost of renting an apartment has gone up about 0.6% from the fourth quarter of 2020. Now to the first quarter of 2021. However, it still remains down 5.8% in comparison to the first quarter of 2020. It was the steepest decline of any neighborhood in the Portland area, according to CoStar.

High Demand in the Suburbs

Matt Crile owns several properties in Washington County. He said there’s still a lot of demand in the suburbs.

“Our places are usually full,” Crile said. “We do have some short-term rental pieces that accommodate people that come in for brief stays and those two have been surprisingly occupied. I would have thought we would have taken a hit because it seems like travel is down.”

Gillem said he expects rental prices to keep climbing downtown.

“As downtown opens back up and the vaccine is widely distributed, are we going to see downtown rebound exponentially and the suburbs kind of level off a bit. That’s something we are watching closely,” Gillem said.


Bugatti Cars And How Expensive They Are Price Wise

There are plenty of expensive brands. But none nearly as ridiculously expensive as the Bugatti brand. When you see a Bugatti, you can tell they had time to make it. And they used every waking (and sleeping) hour to perfect the models into the coolest cars on Earth. As is indicated from their attachment to making the vehicles look like the real deal, you can only imagine how expensive some of these cars really can be. For Bugatti, the models vary but for good reason. To see why they cost so much, you’d do best by reading on to discoer the rationale that brings these speedsters so high on the bill.

Bugatti Chiron? Three Million Dollars.

This vehicle boosts about 1,479-horsepower. It’s not afraid to boast that it was once the fastest production car on the planet. Additionally, it had been powered by a quad-turbo 8.0-liter. This also came with a 16-cylinder engine. Alas, the vehicle in question had no ability to go past 261 mph. But, if you can believe it, the relative Chiron Sport had a firmer chassis and dynamic torque-vectoring system that would enable it to push past the limits most likely.

And what about the Divo? That one is estimated at five-point-seven million.

For sure, with the extremities in style and aerodynamics alike, who could question how fast this hypercar could really go? This vehicle could attack the track, weight in at 77 pounds lesser than it’s competitors and cruise at speeds upwards to 236 miles per hour.

Who could forget the Bugatti Centodieci?

At a whopping nine-million dollars, the Centodieci seems to be a once-in-a-lifetime model made to revel in rebellion. There were only ten of these bad boys made. This model had pushed to speeds capable of 1,578 horsepower. Meanwhile, the car can also hit sixty miles per hour in only 2.4 seconds.
