2015 Hyundai Santa FE Sport 2.0T road test: Classy and capable

If you happen to be looking for a small to mid-size crossover vehicle for the family, I have two words for you: Good luck!

2015 Ford Mustang 1-4 Coupe Premium review: Well grounded at speed

  Perhaps it’s not the way one should begin a review of the 2015 Ford Mustang, but it is a lot about the car and the technology of the times. Open the hood of the 2015 Mustang I-4 Coupe powered by the 2.3-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder and to be seen, in addition to the engine, the […]

2015 Ford Expedition EL Platinum 4X4: Best Supporting Actor?

2015 Ford Expedition EL Platinum 4X4: Best Supporting Actor?

As you’ve probably noticed, Ford builds an abundance of well-regarded cars and the country’s best-selling (and most innovative) truck. And it also builds an absolute truckload of buzz, especially in the last twelve months. As you might expect, there’s much more to the Ford story than simply its iconic Mustang and an alloy-bodied truck. One […]

2015 Lincoln MKC review: More than an Escape

2015 Lincoln MKC review: More than an Escape

It would be easy to write off the new 2015 Lincoln MKC as a Ford Escape in pearls. It’s what Ford has done before, taking a model for the masses, adding a veneer of luxury touches and then sending it off to Lincoln-Mercury dealers with a kiss and a wave and best wishes. And the […]

2015 Nissan Pathfinder SV road test: Think of it as a 21st Century station wagon

2015 Nissan Pathfinder SV road test: Think of it as a 21st Century station wagon

There I was, cruising along comfortably in a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder, and it occurred to me once again that the American family car has pretty much come full circle. Time travel with me back to the 60s and you will recall that a growing family could fit six people into the two rows of a […]

2015 Volkswagen Golf R first drive review: “Most” and “powerful” gets our attention

2015 Volkswagen Golf R first drive review: “Most” and “powerful” gets our attention

Putting “most” and “powerful” in the same sentence has a way of getting our attention. So when Volkswagen announced that the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R would be the most powerful VW Golf ever, we were all ears. Which is a visual not easily forgotten, but when one has a good cliché, one goes with it. […]

2015 Nissan Rogue road test: More mild-mannered  than the name suggests

2015 Nissan Rogue road test: More mild-mannered than the name suggests

It seems as if the automotive planners sometimes get carried away when naming their new vehicles. Really, now, was there anything haughty about the hapless Chevy Cavalier? Does bullish come to mind when you are cruising along in a Ford Taurus? And what about the 2015 Nissan Rogue? Spend only a short time behind the […]

2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid review: Clean, green and seldom seen

2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid review: Clean, green and seldom seen

Why would anyone buy the 2015 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid? Don’t get us wrong. Despite the whipping boy status assigned it by so many auto critics, we like the MKZ and appreciate how it has, to use a term for when someone’s opinion has changed to be more like yours, grown over the past few years. […]

2015 Infiniti QX70 S review: One more time, with black shiny bits

2015 Infiniti QX70 S review: One more time, with black shiny bits

The 2015 Infinity QX70 is one of those vehicles that automotive bluenoses will turn up and sniff, saying that there’s no purpose for a something that’s sort of a coupe but has four doors—or for a four-door that’s not roomy as a sedan—particularly ground clearance and overall layout more of an SUV while it has […]
