2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus 4X4 Test Drive Review

In case you haven’t noticed by now, crossovers and SUVs are kind of popular these days. Manufacturers who have made them for decades are filling in size gaps between models. Just look at Ford as an example. The blue oval offers vehicles that range in size from the city-friendly EcoSport to the more spacious Explorer to the massive Expedition MAX. Automakers who never produced sport utility vehicles before, such as Rolls-Royce, have blended their signature features and driving characteristics with plenty of passenger space, ample cargo room, and software and…

We recently went out to Nashville, Tennessee, but we didn’t go there for the tunes or the BBQ. We showed up for a car: the all-new, seventh-generation 2019 Lexus ES.

It’s the newest part of Lexus’s “Future Chapter,” in which Lexus vehicles will be as exciting as they are comfortable, as thrilling as they are soothing. It started with the LC coupe. The flagship two-door combines concept car looks with ample power and…

Pretty Kitty: 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe Test Drive

Jaguar has a long history of making gorgeous works of automotive art. Many think of the XKSS, a masterpiece of muscular grace from the 1950s, as the world’s first supercar. The E-Type of the ‘60s was a sensuous beauty sculpted out of metal and is now considered by many — including the late Enzo Ferrari — to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made. The XJ220 of the ‘90s was once the world’s fastest production car, capable of topping out at 213 mph, and with its eye-pleasing lines…

X Marks the Spot: 2018 BMW X2 xDrive28i Test Drive

Pick a number, one through six. No matter which one you choose, BMW offers a Sports Activity Vehicle that corresponds to it. The first was the X5 of the late 1990s. It blended BMW’s signature sporty driving dynamics with a larger, roomier body that had more ground clearance than a BMW sedan. Then came the smaller X3. An even smaller X1 eventually debuted. BMW decided to make its SAVs even sportier by introducing coupe-like models such as the X6 and X4, and M performance versions of the X5 and X6….
