Video: 2017 Jaguar XE 25t Review

Jaguar is one of the oldest and most revered British automakers. Its sports car heritage lends itself to every vehicle they produce, and now they’re dipping their toes into the mainstream waters. Meet the 2017 Jaguar XE 25t, which seeks to compete directly with offerings from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz.

2018 Ford Mustang GT is Faster to 60 than a Porsche 911 Carrera

The Mustang has been an automotive icon for over half a century, and the 2018 Ford Mustang GT proves the Blue Oval isn’t resting on its laurels. Want some proof? The 2018 GT will get to 60 mph faster than another automotive icon, the Porsche 911 Carrera — and it will do it for a fraction of the price. At this point, we don’t have an exact figure, as Ford is just saying the time is less than four seconds. That said? There’s one important caveat here. In order to…

The X-Class: A Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck for America?

When we first wrote about the Mercedes-Benz pickup truck concept late last year, we didn’t have much hope it’d make it to America. But not soon after, Mercedes-Benz Vans head Volker Mornhinweg indicated it might not wind up as forbidden fruit here, telling Reuters that “We are watching developments very closely, and we will take a decision at the appropriate time.” In 2017, those developments include 20% growth in America’s mid-size pickup market, the pending return of the Ford Ranger, and the breakout success of the latest Ridgeline, which Honda’s Alabama plant literally…
