Nissan Juke NISMO: All you need is a barrel and some monkeys

Nissan Juke NISMO: All you need is a barrel and some monkeys

The Juke has been around for a few years, and while many consider it the Steve Buscemi of the compact SUV segment, after a while it grows on you. Those bug eyes and awkward stance have scared off some buyers, but those who are willing to take a chance will be rewarded with a fun […]

2014 Ford Fiesta ST review: Super performance on a smaller scale

So your GTZLHE500MI1-R can do zero to sixty in naught-point-whatever seconds. OK, then, what are you going to do with the rest of your day? Seriously.  As enthusiasts, we at CarBuzzard are as much G-force junkies as anyone, but sometimes too much really is too much. And for those times, might we suggest the 2014 […]

2014 Ford Fiesta SE SFE review: Fuel economy at a bargain price with a three-cylinder engine

A three-cylinder engine? Of just 1.0-liters? In the USA? Yessir. Welcome the 2014 Ford Fiesta SE with the SFE package. We’ll just call it the SFE, because that’s what was on the hatch lid, and the only way you could tell from the outside that it was anything but an ordinary Fiesta SE. But ordinary […]

2014 Ford Fusion Energi SE review: Plug-in smoothie

2014 Ford Fusion Energi SE review: Plug-in smoothie

What we were not expecting with the 2014 Ford Fusion Energi SE was just how smooth it would be. It was, Steppenwolf notwithstanding, what a magic carpet ride really should be. That’s under full electric power, however, and with the battery of the plug-in hybrid fully charged, that ride will last about 20 miles—Ford says […]

2015 Hyundai Sonata first drive review: It’s not just a car; it’s a community

2015 Hyundai Sonata first drive review: It’s not just a car; it’s a community

It’s hard to believe that the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) plant has been around for nearly a decade. HMMA is Hyundai’s first U.S.  manufacturing facility, and it is a testament to what a company and people can do, not only when it comes to building cars, but also when it comes to building a […]

2015 BMW M4 Coupe first track drive review: And the M3 Sedan, too

Coming out of Road America’s Turn 10, flipping the up-shift shift paddle at each redline, up the hill and past the pits and here come the braking markers for Turn 1. Stab the brake pedal  on the orange 2015 BMW M4 Coupe and the car squirms under the heavy braking, slowing perhaps more—or at least […]

Infiniti QX70 road test: If you liked the FX, you’ll like the QX

Infiniti QX70 road test: If you liked the FX, you’ll like the QX

Quick question: What is the major difference between a 2014 Infiniti QX70 3.7 and a 2013 Infiniti FX37? Quick answer: One year. For reasons not exactly clear to me, but apparently quite obvious to the Japanese manufacturer’s marketing mavens, Infiniti has decided to rename its line of luxury vehicles to start with the letter “Q.” […]

2014 SRT Viper TA Charmed but not Tamed

2014 SRT Viper TA Charmed but not Tamed

  The snake charmers at SRT (Street, Racing and Technology) have taken their job quite serious and brought the 2014 Viper TA to a higher level of abilities. The job has challenged designers and engineers to retain the beast-like power and performance while giving the Viper a more refined personality. Well, as refined as you […]

2015 GMC Yukon Denali 4WD review: The SUV with the four-foot grille…and more

2015 GMC Yukon Denali 4WD review: The SUV with the four-foot grille…and more

The grille of the 2014 GMC Yukon Denali is four feet across. We know. We measured it. It’s a foot and a half tall, too, and it’s all shiny chrome and graced with “GMC” in bold red letters. And that’s not the only way it’s big. It comes with a price tag of over $76k. […]
