Ready to Work: 2019 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4X2 Test Drive

Every vehicle, no matter how luxurious or expensive it may be, is a sort of tool. Some are more versatile than others. A high-performance sports car is like a pneumatic nail gun. It uses a lot of power to fire you down the road as quickly as possible. A rugged off-road SUV is similar to a sledgehammer because it may lack sophistication, but it gets results. A truck is more like a multi-tool. There’s a good chance you own one. At the very least, you’ve seen one before. When you…

Every time an all-new version of a vehicle comes out, people who are interested in the outgoing generation of it face a dilemma. Should they try to get one of those or consider the newest model? If you’re in the same position with the Mercedes-Benz GLE, I would strongly recommend taking a look at the 2020 GLE (at an AutoNation Mercedes-Benz dealership, of course) for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is that it’s all-new. Not revised, not facelifted. The fourth-generation GLE (known as the ML until the fall…

Distinctive and Luxurious: 2019 Nissan Maxima Platinum Test Drive

Traditional sedans have seen better days. Legendary nameplates such Impala and Taurus will soon no longer be available in the North American market. The good news is that certain legendary sedans, such as the Camry and Accord, are still around. So is the Nissan Maxima, a fixture in the four-door segment for more than 30 years. In fact, Nissan refreshed it for the 2019 model year inside and out. It sports updated exterior styling, new wheel designs, restyled interior treatments (for certain trim levels), and upgraded safety technology, as well…

Retro Renaissance: 2019 Chevrolet Blazer RS Test Drive

We’re living in a sort of automotive renaissance right now. After being absent from the North American market for nearly a decade, the Ford Ranger is back. The next-generation Bronco is coming. And the Chevrolet Blazer is all-new for 2019. Unlike its big and boxy ancestors, the latest Blazer is an angular, front-wheel-drive midsize SUV with four- and six-cylinder engines and available all-wheel drive. Chevy offers it in four basic trim levels: L, Blazer, RS, and Premier. I recently spent a week in the sporty Blazer RS model. It showed…
