Heart of a Muscle Car: 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST Test Drive

With the design of the GM’s current full-size SUV lineup nearing the end of its lifecycle, the automaker is looking for creative ways to bolster sales. Most automakers have learned that appearance packages are a quick and easy way to inject life into an aging vehicle, and that’s exactly what Chevrolet did last year with the Suburban RST (which stands for Rally Sport Truck). While it looked cool, the Suburban didn’t offer the Performance Package upgrade of its smaller sibling, the Tahoe RST. That has changed with 2019 Chevrolet Suburban…

Street-Legal Trophy Truck: Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab

What happens when you take the world’s best-selling pickup truck, give it a Baja-ready makeover and finish it off with a powerful twin-turbo engine developed for the Ford GT supercar? You get the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor! Although the 2018 model is a carryover from last year, a lot has changed in the world of factory-built off-road trucks since we first tested the second-gen Raptor.

Cool Family Car: 2019 Mercedes-Benz E450 Wagon Test Drive

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the most diverse mid-size luxury sedan on the market.  With four available body styles and four engine options, it offers something for just about any taste and price range. We drove a wide variety of E-Class models last year including the E63 AMG Sedan, E400 Coupe and E43 AMG Sedan — but it was the E400 Wagon that stole our heart. In today’s SUV/CUV-heavy market, the sporty-looking station wagon was an absolute hoot to drive, and one of the coolest ways we could imagine toting around up…

Major Reboot: 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Test Drive

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car in the universe, yet it is also one of the most under-appreciated new cars on the market. For most of its existence, it has been an insult to ice cream to call the Corolla vanilla, but that has definitely changed with the all-new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. This car takes the place of the short-lived Scion iM/Toyota Corolla iM, and it instantly gives the Corolla added credibility in the competitive compact segment – where the Corolla has long been competing in sedan-only form…

Premium Feel on a Budget: 2019 Buick Encore Test Drive Review

Buick got a big jump on the competition when it launched its Encore subcompact crossover back for the 2013 model year ahead of today’s mad scramble for market share in the small SUV segment. At the time, the downsizing of SUVs and CUVs hadn’t hit subcompact proportions just yet, but GM took advantage of its Euro-spec Opel Mokka by rebadging it as the Buick Encore. Since then, the Encore has become Buick’s best-selling model, and not only has it helped grow Buick’s crossover lineup (that now includes the Enclave and…
