2017 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD Test Drive Review

It’s easy to answer the question, “What is a Murano?” If you look out your nearest window, you’re likely to see one of the Nissan crossovers driving or parked in front of a house or business. The automaker has been manufacturing them since the 2003 model year and is now three generations deep into the popular model. If you don’t know your European geography, it’s much harder to answer the question, “What does Murano mean?” It’s not a made-up name. Murano is a set of islands near Venice in northern…

2017 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Test Drive Review

Pickup trucks have a long history in this country. For decades, they’ve been symbols of strength, independence, and capability. They’ve helped build the highways that connect states, transport construction materials for millions of homes and iconic buildings, and become synonymous with country music. We really didn’t need to tell you that, though. Truckmakers are more than willing to tell you all about their heritage themselves. The full-size Toyota Tundra only goes back as far as the 2000 model year, picking up where the T100 left off as the brand’s top…

At the end of a commercial for the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, you’ll see the Italian words “La meccanica delle emozioni.” In English, those translate to “The mechanics of emotions.” It’s a fitting phrase given that Alfa Romeo creates machines that are designed to inspire feelings of joy, excitement, and pleasure. Here’s another phrase that applies to Alfa Romeo: “Never say never.” When Alfa Romeo left the U.S. market in the mid-1990s, it was uncertain whether the automaker would ever again sell its vehicles in the country whose film industry…

2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport Test Drive Review

“One of the most significant moments in German automotive history was the unveiling of a Japanese sedan.” You can end that sentence with either a period or a question mark, because while it’s a statement, it’s also something that might make you scratch your head. It’s true, though. For years, the big three German automakers had huge regions of the small luxury sport sedan market to themselves. Audi manufactured the 4000 and A4. Mercedes-Benz produced the 190 and C-Class. BMW had its 3 Series (and so did a lot of…

2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 Test Drive Review

Take a look outside the nearest window. If you’re close enough to see a street, the odds are that you’ll see a crossover or sport utility vehicle of some kind. They’re everywhere these days. However, it’s much less likely you’ll see a Mercedes-Benz G-Class (unless you live in Beverly Hills). What’s now seen as a status symbol originally started life as a vehicle meant to make it over rough terrain and through even tougher circumstances. Even though it’s been in production for nearly 40 years, the G-Class is not a…
