Jeep Leaps Into EV Wars With 2024 Wagoneer S, Will Spearhead Broader Assault On Segment

Jeep is preparing to bank its future on EVs and broader electrification moving forward. While the brand has sold the Avenger EV in Europe for the past few years, the city-focused Avenger is far from a trail-ready offering (the 4xe version will fix that) and is limited to Europe only. However, the U.S. and other markets are about to experience Jeep’s next big step in the EV segment with the 2024 Wagoneer S which not only brings electrification to the Wagoneer nameplate for the first time ever, but also shines a spotlight on how serious Jeep is about making its …

Road Test Review – 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V – Cadillac’s Performance SUV Trades Bling For Fun

The Cadillac Escalade has often been associated with the rich and famous especially with the copious amounts of bling that the big SUV brings to the driveway.

Styling often plays a prominent role in the success or failure of an automobile especially a futuristic clean EV looking to shake up the world stage. Mercedes-Benz is trying to do just that with their EQ lineup of EVs. But so far, the reaction has been mixed with customers showing their lukewarm enthusiasm for the bulk of the lineup.

Road Test Review – 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE – EV Credentials Lack AMG Flair

It wasn’t too long ago that some folks in the industry thought that the EV revolution would be highlighted by vehicles that had plenty of range, but were slow and didn’t have the charisma needed to stand out in showrooms. That was especially evident in the 1990s with some of the EV concepts that appeared on the show circuit.

2024 Audi S4 Sedan review by Ben Lewis

There’s no denying it, we love European sport sedans. While most premium buyers are looking at SUVs, it’s worth remembering that brands like BMW, Mercedes and Audi made their bones on excellent performing sedans. And while the Europeans are developing SUVs and EVs, it seems like sedans still hold a place in those carmaker’s hearts. We recently tested the BMW M340i and found it a high-performance bahnstormer. So, when Audi offered up an S4 sedan to test, we jumped at it. Can the brand with the four rings offer up similar thrills to the famous Roundel? Let’s find out! Racy …

2024 Subaru Solterra Touring review by Ben Lewis

In the world of automakers, Subaru is a smaller one, which means it sometimes pairs up with other manufacturers to help create vehicles at a more affordable cost. It has worked great for the brand, teaming up with Toyota, they have now created two generations of the BRZ sports car, (aka Toyota GR86) that are a complete delight to drive. While the marketplace seems to be adding new EV’s weekly, Subaru – along with many of the Japanese automakers – have been slow to market. And EV’s are expensive and time-consuming to create.

2024 Kia EV9 GT-LINE AWD Long Range Review by Ben Lewis

We recently tested the Lexus TX 500h, and came away impressed with the large 3-row SUV’s overall efficiency, and Lexus lusciousness. But where the TX uses a hybrid powertrain, there are still plenty of folks looking to find a 3-row, EV SUV.  So, it was perfect timing that we got into a Kia EV9 to compare. We were not only interested to see how the EV9 stacks up against the Lexus, but also to see how compares to the Kia Telluride – one of the most popular 3-row SUVs on the market. Let’s check it out!

Jaguar’s New Electric GT Will Be Bold Gamble, Starts at $125k and Will Make Debut In Key Market

When Jaguar and Land Rover (JLR) revealed that they were embarking on an ambitious and expensive rebranding campaign last year, the firm made it clear that it was treating this as an all-or-nothing play. The program saw the company not only shorten its name to JLR, but also split Land Rover’s models into individual brands. One other item that flew below the radar up until now is the full electrification of Jaguar which will also simultaneously push the brand upmarket as JLR attempts to compete with Bentley and Porsche.  A new report suggests that Jaguar will start its EV revolution …

Road Test Review – 2024 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid – Sipping Fuel In Style

Compact cars have long been relegated to the role of being basic transportation with style and features once being considered a mere afterthought.

A couple interesting trends have been happening the last year or so in SUV world.

The other trend that’s heating up again is the three-row SUV.

Tesla’s Cybertruck Gets Software Update To Make It More Capable

2024 Subaru WRX TR Road test review by Ben Lewis

When it comes to the Subaru WRX, we’re big fans. While the automaker brings in the big bucks with popular crossovers like the Outback and Forester, with the ‘Rex, they stay true to the enthusiasts as well. And while the WRX has always been great fun out of the box, it’s also been a hugely popular starting point for those who love to modify their vehicles. In fact, in 2006, Subie created a WRX TR model. “TR” stood for “Tuner Ready”, and they took out some of the heavy, expensive stuff like the audio system to create a lighter, less …

2025 Aston Martin DBX707 Becomes Default DBX, Gets Interior Updates

Aston Martin wanted to make a splash when the company unleashed the DBX SUV in 2020. The model was supposed to enhance Aston’s foothold in the segment and give the company a secondary sales avenue that wouldn’t rely so heavily on their lineup of sports cars and rand touring models. The DBX proved to be very successful for the company and with the DBX707 in particular proving to be a runaway hit, Aston Martin has used the new model year to not only trim the lineup, but also make interior updates to the model as well.   DBX707 Becomes The …

Road Test Review – 2024 Lotus Emira First Edition – The End Of An Era

When Lotus unveiled the 2024 Emira sports car, it represented the end of an era for the company. The Emira was designed to be a successor for the Evora GT but it could also be considered a spiritual successor for the Elise. When the U.S. last saw the Elise, it was better known for being an ultra-lightweight thrill machine that sliced flab at the cost of creature comfort and refinement. Tightening safety regulations ended its run in the U.S. with the Evora being the lone solider for Lotus in our country. But can the Emira successfully walk the proverbial tightrope …

2024 Mazda CX-5 Carbon Turbo Edition by Ben Lewis

We recently spent some time in the Mazda CX-50, which would seem to be designed to replace the current CX-5, which is their best-selling model. Mazda replaced the CX-3 with the CX-30, and the CX-9 with the CX-90. So were we wrong. Maybe, as the carmaker continues to offer the CX-5, so we felt it was good time to drive one again and see how it shapes up against the ’50.

Insider: Smoking Cigarettes Can Devalue Your Car. Here’s What You Can Do

If you plan to sell your car or trade it in for a new one, you’re probably concerned with its resale value. You’re right to do so—used car values are plummeting this year.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Proves Wait Is Worth it, Gets Major Upgrades

The Toyota 4Runner was once a mascot for just how long an automobile could possibly go without any major updates.

Road Test Review – 2023 BMW 330i – Aging 3-Series Still Has Plenty of Tricks up Its Sleeve

The BMW 330i is a symbol of the old guard in some ways when one looks at BMW’s lineup. It’s still the benchmark others strive to beat in the luxury sport sedan segment and it’s also one of the few remaining that have not had their twin-kidney grilles enlarged to comical proportions. While the pressure of SUV and CUV demand has certainly cut into some of its sales, the four-door still has a strong following.

So while we’ve had some fun with EV’s lately including the stylish Ionic 6, the crazy BMW XM, and Toyota’s bZ4X and the rocket ship Kia EV6 GT, when we were offered another go ‘round with the Ionic 5, we jumped at the chance. Does it hold up to our memory, or …

2024 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport SE review by Ben Lewis

3-row SUVs are hot these days. We recently tested the Kia Telluride, and the Mazda CX-90 both great vehicles. Another player we like a lot is the VW Atlas. Putting all the VW traits of fun-to-drive, good value and Euro-style together makes for a popular vehicle. And VW is smart, too. They realize there are some buyers who like the big size, but don’t really need that 3rdrow. And that frees up the designers to do something a little sportier. So, they created the Atlas Cross Sport. Well, it’s been a few years, and VW has just brought an updated …

Insider: How Electric Vehicles Can Save You Money in the Long Run

There has been an increase in cars that use alternative energy sources as their primary power source. The one reason driving this change is lower fuel costs than conventional gas or diesel-powered vehicles. In order to understand why these new types of models are cheaper, it makes sense to compare them with the aspects of the cost associated with conventional alternatives. First of all, battery and hybrid engines are much more efficient than the ones powering conventional cars when converting stored energy into motion – which translates into less power consumption per mile driven.
