The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.

Automotive

An updated 2017 version of Chevy’s compact SUV, the Trax, will debut at the Chicago Auto Show. The new Trax will still have the old 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but prepare to see a facelift, new LED lighting and Apple CarPlay.

Never expected to say this, but we’re excited to see a safety car on the track. BMW has decked out the new M2 as a track safety car for the MotoGP series this upcoming season. The modified M2 is a stripped-down and caged version of the M2 production car that arrives later this year.

Cadillac has officially released pricing for the new XT5 crossover. At $39,990, it falls just below the competition. XT5 competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Lexus RX 350.

Gear

For today’s beer pick, we head to San Francisco and one of the most respected craft breweries in the country: Ballast Point Brewing Company. With a nautical theme to each of its beers, Ballast Point has done a fine job of stepping outside of its comfort zone and into the world of fruit-infused brews.
