Several years ago I was invited to a special showing of a touring concept vehicle from Infiniti. It was called Essence, and it featured the styling trend for the future of the brand. Since then, we have seen elements appear in much of the new product including this 2018 Q50S Red Sport 400 sedan.Read More
GMC has introduced a new Sierra model, designed to be a premium off-road pickup truck to compete with the likes of the Dodge Ram and the Ford F-150. The all-new 2019 Sierra AT4 was unveiled tonight just before the upcoming New York International Auto Show.
Despite the popularity of new smaller crossover utility vehicles, large, luxurious SUVs are still holding their own quite well. These are the modern examples of craftsmanship, design, engineering, and opulence. Perhaps nowhere is that more evident right now than in the new 2018 Infiniti QX80.
Sportback is the name for Audi’s sedan with coupe-like styling that features a hatch to access the cargo space. Audi developed it on the midsize A5/S5 model line a little more than a decade ago, but it is just now arriving on U.S. soil.
Twenty years ago, Toyota announced its large pickup would be named Tundra. It launched a year later and over the past couple decades it has seen quite a few changes including some nice updates that arrived on our recent 2018 Tundra 1794 review model.
I know it has been said before that sedan sales are on the decline, but just a little over a year ago Chevrolet quoted that hatchback sales had seen a 9 percent market growth.

If there is still any doubt about the selling power of crossover utility vehicles, let us take a look at luxury automaker Lexus. For 2017, its popular RX CUV outsold the entire car lineup and the compact NX outsold the ES midsize sedan. We recently tested the new 2018 Lexus NX 300.
When the Honda Ridgeline showed up in the test driveway recently it was like an old friend had come by for a visit. Ridgeline has become my favorite new midsize pickup and spending another week behind the wheel in the new 2018 model was as enjoyable as ever.
About a year ago, Toyota rolled out a new Camry midsize sedan in front of journalists gathered for the big auto show in Detroit. I, like many of my colleagues I am sure, thought, “Here we go again, another Camry, probably as boring as the ones before it.” Boy, was I wrong.
For the first time, Ford is bringing their EcoSport to the U.S. In addition to this being an enticing SUV for those who are environmentally conscious, the car’s integration with Waze makes this an ideal vehicle for Uber and Lyft drivers – and pretty much everyone who uses Waze on a regular basis.
It has been no secret that passenger car sales are dwindling, and automakers are doing everything they can to hold on to what few car customers they have. Case in point Hyundai and its Sonata midsize sedan that sees a refresh for model year 2018.
