A Go-Kart for the Road: 2018 Toyota 86 GT Test Drive Review

We have a soft spot for tiny affordable sports cars with a substantial amount of horsepower and a manual gearbox. Every time we test something like the Mazda MX-5 Miata or the Volkswagen Golf GTI, we are pretty excited to see how far we can push them. We recently test drove the 2018 Toyota 86 GT and while there is a new 2019 model year, all the mechanicals are essentially the same. In a world obsessed with crossovers and taking Ubers, the Toyota 86 is a refreshing sports car that…

Extravagance and Performance: 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet Test

The new S-Class lineup is some of our favorite luxury vehicles on the market right now. Especially when it comes to the S-Class Coupe and the S-Class Convertible. They just have such a powerful presence on the road, and with AMG in the mix, you’re left with something that started out gorgeous and wound up looking  absolutely marvelous. We recently spent some time with the all-new 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet, and first of all, this drop top isn’t a cheap car by any means. Prices start at $250,900 which puts…

Watch the Gorgeous New Volvo Polestar 1 Come Together: Video

We’ve been impressed with all the Volvo product we’ve had the opportunity to test this year. Since its purchase by Chinese auto giant Geely, the company has been releasing some of its best vehicles ever, and emerged from its former niche status into a potent player in the luxury segment. While we’re still hoping — though there’s nothing to suggest it’ll happen — for a reboot of the stunning P1800 of the 1960s, we think the company has been hitting it out of the park when it comes to styling…

Here’s How Much Power the 2019 Ford Ranger is Packing

There’s been no shortage of information about the 2019 Ford Ranger. But now, we have the numbers we’ve been waiting for — and they sound promising. The 2.3-liter four-cylinder under the hood of Ford’s new mid-size pickup will have 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers translate to a payload capacity of 1,860 pounds, and provided buyers opt for the towing package, a 7500-pound towing capacity. A ten-speed automatic is the only transmission. Unlike the Chevy Colorado and the Toyota Tacoma, the Ranger doesn’t have a V6 option. That…

Just Right: 2019 Subaru Ascent Limited Test Drive

For Subaru, it doesn’t get any bigger than the Ascent. Literally. With a wheelbase length of 113.8 inches and three rows of seating for up to eight people, it’s the largest vehicle Subaru has ever built. The Ascent is the right vehicle at the right time. Subaru retired its three-row predecessor, the Tribeca, several years ago. That left Subaru loyalists and those new to the brand with a wealth of smaller options, but forced them to turn to other brands for a three-row SUV. The Ascent fills that hole at…
