One Fun EV: 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf SE Test Drive Review

With an estimated 125-miles of EV range and outstanding driving dynamics, the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf comes to us in an understated package that many will appreciate. I say understated because the e-Golf has an air of familiarity to it that makes one immediately comfortable when they slide behind the wheel. The interior, for example, is almost identical to that of a standard Golf, sans a few dash readouts and some contrasting stitching, with the exterior following suit. This is not a “statement” EV, but instead, one that goes about the…

2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat and Scat Pack Widebody Reveal

Everyone knew the Widebody Hellcat and Scat Pack were coming, and this week, they were revealed. Now, I’ve driven just about every version of FCAs LX platform of vehicles since their release in 2005. I put almost 70k on a 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 (remember those?), raced multiple Challengers in the One Lap of America (392 Shaker & Redeye), romped on many a Chrysler 300, and even shelled out a ton of my own money to purchase an 840-horsepower Dodge Demon back in 2018. Understand that this has nothing to…

Plug and Play: 2019 Ford Fusion Energi Titanium Test Drive

For 2019 the Ford Fusion Energi Titanium has a few new tricks up its sleeve to help it stay competitive in the ever-growing plug-in hybrid segment. The second generation Fusion was released in 2013, and with beautiful and modern styling, it was an instant hit with consumers. Thanks to some revised battery technology the Energi sees a 4-mile bump in EV range to 25 miles (up from 21), which means fewer fuel stops if a fast charger is accessible. As this is a hybrid, the Fusion Energi also employs petrol…

Grown Up Performance Fun: 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

Make no mistake — I’m a trunk man. I just dig ‘em. Hatchbacks are cool and all, but give me a well-proportioned trunk with a decent amount of cubic feet for cargo, and I’m all in. To that, I’ll also add that I like sedans as opposed to coupes. Not only are they more versatile, but also driving a sedan makes me feel like an adult, whereas a hatch sends me back to my early 20s. That said, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is the adult version of the Golf…

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sahara is All About Having Fun

The last long-term relationship I had with a Jeep Wrangler lasted from 1999 until 2003. My younger brother bought one new, and then for the next four years, he and I proceeded to beat it like it owed us money. Its 4.0-liter I6 was bombproof, but as a whole, the Jeep drove with a grace and agility of a Conestoga wagon. That said? I just got done spending a week with a brand new 2019 Wrangler Sahara, and I’m happy to say that two decades of progress makes quite a…
