Red Phoenix Rising: 2019 Toyota 86 GT Test Drive

There is no shortage of performance vehicles in the U.S. They take many different forms. Mercedes-AMG makes a variety of SUVs that will rocket you and your entire family to your destination with face-flattening amounts of turbocharged V8 horsepower. You can use the Ford Raptor to take the kids to school and fly across the desert at 100 mph. If you’re more into sedans, Dodge offers its Charger with three different V8s that range in output from 370 all the way up to 707 horsepower. In the Mazda MX-5 Miata,…

It’s hard to believe that the Subaru Forester has only been around for a little over 20 years. It’s such a well-known model and icon of the brand that it’s easy to think it’s much older than it is. Four generations of Foresters have splashed through streams and climbed muddy hills to take their owners on adventures far away from it all. This year marks the dawn of the fifth-generation Forester. It’s new from the ground up. The 2019 model sports fresh sheet metal and rides on the Subaru Global…

That song would’ve gone in a completely different direction if Jackson and co-writer Jim McBride had written it today about another big part of country music: pickup trucks, and the 2019 RAM…

2019 RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn 4X4 Test Drive Review

Even though it’s less than a year old, I already have what feels like a long history with the completely re-designed and re-engineered 2019 RAM 1500. I learned all about its lighter high-strength steel frame, new cab sizes, updated suspension, and revamped engine lineup during the media launch event in Scottsdale, Arizona last March. I also got the chance to drive the new Rebel model off-road. In the summer, I spent a week behind the wheel of a 1500 Laramie 4X4 and used it to move into a new home…

The Next Generation Starts Now: Ford Reveals the All-New 2020 Explorer in Detroit

The Explorer is a significant model in Ford’s past and will be an important vehicle to the brand in the years to come. In March 1990, Ford introduced the world to the Explorer, an SUV that would take millions of people on adventures with their families and friends, and change Ford and the automotive landscape as a whole for decades to come. The blue oval recently invited us up to Detroit to witness the debut of the sixth-generation 2020 Explorer, a vehicle that will play a vital part in Ford’s…
