2019 Honda Passport Elite – Off-Road Test Review – By Matt Barnes

Returning after a 16-year hiatus, the Honda Passport is a large, 2-row CUV that slots between the Pilot and CRV. The Passport is built on the same platform as the Pilot and Ridgeline and uses the same power train, but is six inches shorter, one inch taller with an extra inch of ground clearance. Exterior All Passports come with a blacked-out grill and LED lights, but the Elite we tested had glossy trim throughout and even gloss black wheels. Other trims get a matte finish with polished aluminum or grey wheels. One thing that is immediately apparent is that the …

Polaris Unveils 2020 Slingshot, New Automatic Transmission And Turbocharging For Everyone

Polaris had us and the world wondering what was in store when they began teasing the 2020 Slingshot. Serving as a radical revamp of the lovable three wheeler that we had the chance to fully experience in Traverse City, the company promised that big changes were in store for the hot selling three-wheeler, and now that the covers have come off, and we have had a chance to soak it all in the 2020 model is a very different animal in a number of very encouraging ways.

Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition Brings A Golden Farewell To Outgoing Steelframe

Changes are happening at a rapid pace at Morgan Motor Company, with the bespoke British sports car maker saying farewell to its long running steel chassis. And yes we use that term quite literally, with the frame underpinning nearly all Morgan four wheeled models (Aero excluded) for over several decades. It also predates the Morgan Plus 4, which is currently celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. To help kill two birds with one stone, Morgan has unveiled an all new special edition that brings gold and platinum to the party.   Before we go any further, we might as well …

Bentley Marks Retirement Of Mulsanne Sedan With All New 6.75 Edition

The Bentley Mulsanne was designed to be a throwback to the days when big four door sedans were the flagship offerings in Bentley’s stable of ultra luxury vehicles. But with the Bentley Flying Spur stealing relevance and sales away from the Mulsanne, Bentley is finally pulling the plug on the big four door. Before it does, the British luxury car maker is saying goodbye with the introduction of the all new 6.75 liter Edition Mulsanne.   Bentley will be building only 30 examples of the 6.75 liter Edition, with the 6.75 portion of its name being a nod to the …

2021 GMC Yukon Ups The Refinement Scale, Brings New Technology To Buyers

When the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe were first unveiled back in December, we wondered how long it would be before its GMC twins the GMC Yukon and the Yukon XL would make their appearance. Following a wave of speculation as well as lingering sightings of testers all over Metro Detroit, GMC took the veil off the 2021 GMC Yukon which brings more refinement, technology, and flair to buyers. Unlike the Suburban and Tahoe which featured elements of the controversial design language seen in the Silverado, the Yukon’s Sierra based design allows it to borrow cues from that model, and …

2020 Lexus RC F – Road Test Review – By Ben Lewis

For a long time, Lexus has stood for really wonderful cars. Beautifully built, wonderfully smooth, but it’s been the rare Lexus model that could turn the heads of buyers who pony up serious dough for Mercedes’ AMG, BMW’s M Division, and Porsche. Well, there was the Lexus LFA. And it was sensational, but priced new at $400,000 and going for mid-400’s to 600’s (yes, thousands) now, it was always a halo car that was going to be out of reach of almost all of us. (We do still buy Lottery tickets and dream, though). For the rest of us, Lexus …

2019 BMW Z4 M40i – Road Test Review & Drive Video

It was a BMW fun-fest at Car-Revs-Daily.com this Fall and we loved every minute of it. Driving the new Z4 let us experience the amazing torque-rush of the B58 “M40” motor we loved so much in the X4 in a lighter and far more aerodynamic package.  One with the wind in your hair and sun on your face.  There are quite a few contrasts in the new Z4’s mission: to be both more luxurious while still keeping its playful and sporty appeal intact. We came away thrilled with the machine for so many reasons — and only mention the Supra …
