Mazda CX-9: The Anti-SUV People Mover

There’s a litany of options when it comes to three-row crossover SUV’s these days. Nearly all of them follow a similar formula: a boxy exterior design (to maximize interior space), an optional V-6 engine and all the options one could want. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, it may not be a broken formula, but Mazda has deviated…

2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited Platinum Review

Look up ordinary in the dictionary and you’re likely to see a full-size crossover. They’re not usually sexy to look at or thrilling to drive by any stretch. Instead, they’re beacons of practicality, serving duty as conduits from schools to Costco in Suburbia. It’s an obligation the Toyota Highlander Hybrid Platinum is meticulously designed to accommodate. There’s several flavors of…

2018 Lexus GS 300 F-Sport Review

[URISP id=15549] Through its F-Sport trim and its stunning coupe lineup, Lexus has undoubtedly been gnawing away at its more senior brand image. There’s no more-obvious example of this attempt at youth than a GS 300 F-Sport dressed in the brightest of blue hues, packing a flashy red interior. Despite its bold visuals, this F-Sport is more show than go.…

First Drive: 2019 Ram 1500 Closes the Gap
2019 Ram 1500 First Drive

At the launch of the 2019 Ram 1500, FCA brass christened the new truck with a mission: overtake the Chevrolet Silverado. If RAM were ever to close the roughly 85,000-unit sales gap, the time may be now or never. In terms of product execution itself, however, the new Ram 1500 has already zeroed in on its target. The showdown descends…

2018 Cadillac CT6 Platinum

Cadillac has explicitly said the CT6 is not the brand’s flagship. Perhaps the assertion stems from the fact Cadillac is in a perpetual state of “just wait for…” as the revolving door of reinvention continues to spin at its SoHo headquarters. Nonetheless, the 2018 CT6 is a big, rear-wheel drive luxury sedan; you know, like the BMW 7 Series and…

2017 GMC Acadia All-Terrain

It’s a general theory that you avoid messing with success, but that’s an adage GMC is ignoring with the 2017 Acadia. They’ve replaced the decade-old crossover with a vehicle that shares literally nothing with the old one, which could be construed as both a positive and negative. However, one thing is certain: this is a reinvented Acadia that’s smaller, lighter…

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel

It sounds like a delivery van. That phrase has been a common remark while driving the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado diesel. No one ever expects such a throaty, diesel-induced clank, clank, clank from this little pickup. Frankly, it’s a foreign noise to the American ear. The good news is that the Colorado diesel is anything but a mundane, utilitarian delivery vehicle.…

2016 Chevrolet Silverado High Country

The world of half-ton pickups is an odd one. It’s adorned with niches, such as sporty trucks, off-road beasts and now (apparently) the ranch style truck. In Chevy’s case, the Silverado High Country serves as the brand’s answer to the Ford F-150 King Ranch as the rugged, rancher-edition luxury trim level. And if your preferences lead you to saddle colored…

2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51

The hottest topic in automotive these days is vehicle automation. In that regard, the Chevrolet Corvette is hardly novel – it’s a car that still has to be driven. It doesn’t have parking sensors, because if you can’t park it you sure as hell shouldn’t be piloting it. The Corvette does have a camera in the windshield, but it’s there…
