2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE Td6 Test Drive Review

The Range Rover is more than just an SUV. It transcends being an extremely capable 4X4. Even calling it an automotive icon is selling it short. The Range Rover is a dynasty. It hasn’t always been that way. For decades, there was only one Range Rover model. The original version debuted in the early 1970s with three doors, permanent four-wheel drive, a clamshell hood, and a split tailgate. By 1981, the Range Rover had grown two more doors, making it easier for passengers to climb into the rear for off-road…

2017 BMW X3 xDrive28i Test Drive Review

The year 2017 is the end of an era. Correction: It’s the end of a generation. This is the last year of the F25 version of the BMW X3.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab Test Drive Review

There are certain things you just don’t outgrow. You never stop being your parents’ child. There are some people who still remember your childhood nickname – and at least one of them never lets you forget what it was. For some, a fascination with dinosaurs is another one of those things they’ve never outgrown. They used to doodle sketches of them in their elementary school notebooks, saw “Jurassic Park” when it first hit theaters, and in the years since have learned interesting facts about the giants that once roamed the…
