2017 INFINITI Q60 Red Sport 400 Test Drive Review

It may be impossible to determine when an infinity begins, but we know when INFINITI started. Nissan’s luxury automotive division opened its first 51 dealerships in the United States in 1989. They had two cars on their showroom floors: the Q45 sedan and the M30 coupe. INFINITI incorporated the now-iconic VQ V6 engine into its vehicle portfolio in 1995. In 1999, it started welcoming owners to the perks and unique experiences available in the INFINITI Owners Club. Intelligent Cruise Control and INFINITI’s RearView Monitor debuted two years later. The year…

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Test Drive Review

You can find a lot of things out in the desert. There are species of plants and wildlife and even people that manage to live through years of intense heat and high winds. Some sands conceal ancient artifacts that haven’t been seen by human eyes in centuries. Thanks to the refraction of light rays, you may even see a mirage of water where there is none. We recently found ourselves having a blast out in the desert – behind the wheel of a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew. The blue…

2017 BMW i3 (with Range Extender) Test Drive Review

You are not hallucinating. This is not a joke. You are not living in an elaborate test of your sanity or the world’s most intricate practical joke. The reality you live in is the same one everyone else lives in. This is not “The Truman Show” and your name is not Truman Burbank (we’re assuming). You are actually living in a time in which cars have two clutches, Ford pickups have 10-speed transmissions, Jaguar and Maserati make SUVs, and BMW makes electric cars. Actually, BMW manufactures two electric cars: the…

2017 INFINITI Q70 5.6 Test Drive Review

There are 26 letters in the alphabet. Nissan’s luxury vehicle division, INFINITI, implies a company without limits. Ironically, it starts the names of each of its models with only one letter: Q. It wasn’t always that way. Since INFINITI started selling cars in 1989, there have been vehicles such as the straight-edged M30 of the 1990s, the sleek I35 sedan of the 2000s, and the FX line of curvy crossovers. That’s the way it is now, though. At INFINITI, Q isn’t the 17th letter, it’s the first. Its crossovers come…

2017 Mercedes-Benz SL450 Test Drive Review

Break out the noisemakers and the party hats. This year, the Mercedes-Benz SL roadster turns 60. The original 1957 model was a descendent of the 1954 300SL “Gullwing” Coupe, which was the street car version of the low-slung, curvaceous 300SL race car of 1952. In 1963, Mercedes introduced the next generation of the SL. They called it the W113 series. Buyers and fans of the car dubbed it the “Pagoda” because of the shape of its hardtop roof. The R107-series SL hit the market in 1971. It didn’t leave dealerships…
