2015 Mustang GT Premium review: Get grip, get action

2015 Mustang GT Premium review: Get grip, get action

When we reviewed the 2015 Ford Mustang powered by the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four, we were impressed. But we said, and this is a direct quote, “It’s not, of course, the 5.0-liter V-8…” Well, duh. It’s not a 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Now there’s a surprise. But they’re certainly both high performance Mustangs with, in their […]

2015 Ford Edge Preview: There’s EcoBoost…and EgoBoost

2015 Ford Edge Preview: There’s EcoBoost…and EgoBoost

Scottsdale, AZ – On the sun-ripened streets of Phoenix it’s easy to be conflicted. Anne Murray’s Snowbird comes to mind (yeah, I know…but it won’t leave), while memories of Arizona senator Barry Goldwater still resonate, almost twenty years after his passing. Goldwater, a pilot, had a real affection for performance; a contemporary pic of him […]

2015 Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD Sport review: Not a lion, but a Jaguar in winter

2015 Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD Sport review: Not a lion, but a Jaguar in winter

We’ve driven conventional rear-wheel drive Jaguars in the snow, and we’ll confess that, well, there are times when it’s time to bring the Land Rover out of the garage. Well, not necessarily. Jaguar, with the XF and XJ sedans can be equipped with all-wheel drive. The Jaguar XF is Jaguar’s small sedan, in the U.S. […]

Lexus NX 200t vs. Toyota RAV4 Limited: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide

Lexus NX 200t vs. Toyota RAV4 Limited: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide

Introduced to at least a portion of U.S. media in the hip, urbane environs in and around Seattle, the intentions of the Lexus PR team were immediately obvious (as – admittedly – they are in any number of automotive intros): Plug the Lexus NX 200t – the carmaker’s first compact CUV – into the Seattle […]

2015 GMC Canyon Crew Cab SLE 4WD review: In the middle

2015 GMC Canyon Crew Cab SLE 4WD review: In the middle

If you buy pickup trucks by the pound, look elsewhere. Not that the 2015 GMC Canyon is a lightweight, but it’s certainly doesn’t spin the needle on the Toledo No Springs Honest Weight quite like, say, a GMC Sierra would. Rather the GMC Canyon is referred to as a mid-size pickup, a notch down from […]

2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen first drive review: Jetta then, Golf now

2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen first drive review: Jetta then, Golf now

A lot of car manufacturers agonize over changing the name of an established vehicle. Most of the time, it’s a bad decision. Take the Ford Taurus for example. First it was a Taurus, then the 500, then Taurus again. And if that wasn’t confusing enough, Ford made a Taurus X, which really threw everyone for […]

2015 Kia Soul EV Review: Making a solid case for electric vehicles

2015 Kia Soul EV Review: Making a solid case for electric vehicles

Electric vehicles are polarizing (no pun intended). People either love them or hate them. We love them because they make us less dependent on fossil fuel, but hate them because we need to rely on electricity instead. We love them because we can use the HOV lanes on the highway in rush-hour traffic, but hate […]

2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco road test: A lot more than just frugal

2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco road test: A lot more than just frugal

With the addition of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco to the lineup of the South Korean automaker’s 7th generation mid-size family sedan, the hard-charging company has made a buyer’s decision more difficult. What the Eco brings to the Sonata showroom is a slightly more efficient powertrain than the two initial offerings and pricing that is […]

2015 Ford Edge Sport first drive review: What the cool kids drive

2015 Ford Edge Sport first drive review: What the cool kids drive

“That would be cool.” Somehow you have to believe that was said a lot during the development of then 2015 Ford Edge. There just doesn’t seem to be an area where there wasn’t some improvement that’s, well, cool. Not that the original Edge, which defined its own crossover corner of the automotive market when it […]
