2018 Acura TLX A-Spec Is Refined Driving Excitement

Just three years ago we brought you word of the all-new TLX midsize sport sedan from Acura, a car that would replace two models to secure its place as the middle child in the Acura showroom. For 2018, Acura has given TLX some very nice upgrades as well as a new A-Spec sport variant.


2017 Ram 3500 Limited Mega Cab 4×4: Beauty Is the Beast

Every time I receive a heavy-duty pickup from the press fleets, I refer to the never-ending battles waged amongst the manufacturers of said trucks and this will be no different. Ram sent us its latest, largest consumer machine and it is a beast – a very pretty beast – in the form of the 2017 Ram 3500 Limited Mega Cab.


Lexus Rolls out Newest SUV Tech and Highlights Hotel Partner Program

Right off the bat, let me admit that there are occasionally review opportunities that I’m predisposed to be a fan of. As a food, drink, travel and tech writer, I often receive invitations to sample items and experiences that I know going in will probably be pretty bad-ass, or pretty bad.


2017 Kia Niro Is a Hybrid Hit

Kia has been in the hybrid gas/electric propulsion game for about six years now and for 2017 they have released the brand’s first dedicated hybrid model dubbed Niro. The Kia Niro is described as an urban crossover hybrid vehicle that combines utility with excellent fuel economy.


2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe Is Alive and Kicking

When we first tested the 10th generation Honda Civic last year we were left yearning for a manual gearbox. We got our wish as Honda recently brought us its all-new 2017 Civic Si, the first turbocharged Si in the model’s history.


2017 Volkswagen Passat Toes the R-Line

Last year we brought you our review of the refreshed 2016 Passat from Volkswagen. For 2017, the German-American midsize sedan sees the addition of the R-Line trim level that adds some sportier touches some safety technology coming standard to this and other models.


2017 Infiniti QX60 Is Familiar and Fabulous

If there is something very familiar with this 2017 Infiniti QX60 premium family utility vehicle, it could be that you remember its cousin we reviewed not too long ago in the form of the Nissan Pathfinder. And like the Pathfinder, the QX60 receives some nice upgrades for this year model as well.


Mazda’s Designs Embody Their “Driving Matters” Philosophy Perfectly

I came across an anonymous quote recently that said, “Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you.” After spending a few days with Mazda and their new CX-5 and Miata MX-5, I think I can safely say that driving a Mazda managed to break the monotony and bring the adventure without the hurt! Mazda is on the rise, refining…


2017 Fiat 500 Cabrio: Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder

In taking press fleet deliveries from one of the companies I deal with I am constantly reminded of a famous line from one of my favorite movies, Forrest Gump. This week was no different as the baby blue 2017 Fiat 500 Cabrio (500c) pulled into the test driveway – I never know what I am going to get.


2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star (Hi-Yo) Silver

In case you did not know it, Dodge no longer makes pickup trucks. Sure, you can still by trucks at your local “Dodge” dealer but for about a decade now they have been branded Ram, although most folks seem to have missed that message.



2017 Jeep Compass Is All New and Greatly Improved

Jeep, a name synonymous with off-roading around the globe, is earning quite the urban reputation for itself, too. In recent years the iconic wonder brand of the Fiat Chrysler Automobile group has been winning over car buyers who will never take their vehicles off paved surfaces thanks, in part, to models such as the 2017 Jeep Compass.


2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Gets Beefier, Bolder

Those of you following the heavy-duty pickup segment know that manufacturers have been locked in an all-out brawl for quite some time now. Three-quarter and one-ton trucks have not only been getting stronger but have gone upscale, and they feature many of the same creature comforts as the top-of-the-line passenger cars and SUVs from the same brands, Chevrolet included.


2017 Nissan Pathfinder: More Show and More Go

Pathfinder is probably Nissan’s second-best known nameplate, right after the Z. Now a few years after the introduction of its fourth-generation, the Sport Ute receives some significant upgrades in styling, safety, technology, and performance.



2017 Genesis G90: Living Large in the Lap of Luxury

Not long ago we introduced you to the Genesis G80, our first look at one of the vehicles debuting the new luxury brand from Hyundai. Since then we have gotten the opportunity to drive the flagship of the brand, the 2017 Genesis G90 luxury sedan.



2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Minivan Is Electrifying

Reinventing the vehicle that launched a segment might be headlines news all unto itself, but what Chrysler has done to the minivan segment is absolutely electrifying. Really. Chrysler designers and engineers have delivered the best minivan yet in the new 2017 Pacifica, and it is now offered with a hybrid gas/electric powertrain.


2017 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 Is a ‘Great One’

For some reason it seems as if the arrival of spring has been marked by the arrival of the newest GMC Sierra Denali pickup in our test driveway and this year has been no different. Last year, the model received some styling and technology upgrades. That trend continues for model year 2017.


2017 Nissan Titan XD Single Cab Reports for Duty

A year ago I brought you the review of the all-new Titan XD pickup from Nissan. This truck is placed in between light- and heavy-duty models on the market with the truck maker calling it “Every-Duty.” At the time of release it was only available as a crew cab model, but now the Titan XD lineup has expanded.


2017 Kia Cadenza is Big on What Matters Most in a Sedan

After spending a week behind the wheel of the 2017 Kia Cadenza, I would swear the Korean automaker hired Buick engineers and designers to build this car. Traditional sedan buyers choose a brand or model because it fits their exact needs and the new Cadenza is the perfect sedan model.
