2020 Kia Soul | This Box Is Anything But Square

Once upon a time there were a few boxy hatches to chose from in America but only the Soul has survived. The rest of the competition managed to lose their way when trying to redesign their iconic boxes but Kia seems to be three-for-three with their new third generation 2020 Soul. The interior is more […]

2019 Ford Ranger v 2020 Jeep Gladiator | A Quick Look

I got my hands on America’s two newest mid-size trucks recently which means it’s time to talk about which one is my favorite and which one is right for you! Both come in off-road models but one is certainly more tuned for on-road duty than the other. Is that good or bad? That depends on […]

2019 BMW X5 | Is It Still The Mid-Sized Luxury King?

For 2019 the X5 sees some big changes. It’s no longer BMW’s SUV flagship now that the X7 has landed and by all appearances the optional 3rd row is soon to be killed off. Although there’s sure to be a fire-breathing X5M soon, the rest of the X5 lineup seems to have doubled down on […]

The new 2019 Jetta is Volkswagen’s biggest “compact” sedan ever and at the same time, the most efficient gasoline Jetta to make it to America.

Alex On Answers: Do I Still Need A 3/4 Ton Truck?

Since the latest crop of 1/2 ton trucks was launched I’ve fielded a staggering number of questions from viewers asking: Can I replace my old 3/4 ton truck with a new 1/2 ton truck now that they are so capable? As always, the answer isn’t as easy as yes or no.

2019 Chevy Silverado 2.7L Turbo! | Not Quite A V8 Replacement

When Chevy created their new 2.7L turbo truck engine, they decided to go in a different direction than Ford did with their 2.7L Ecoboost V6. Instead of making it a V8 replacement, the Chevy / GMC 2.7L four-cylinder turbocharged engine is designed to be more of an upgrade from a V6 rather than a full-on […]

GMC’s new AT4 off-road trim includes parts that you can get on your own aftermarket, or on some of their other models as part of various off-road equipment packages. So why get the AT4?

Our “real world range test” has never caused more than a murmur before, but it caused a firestorm (not too surprising) when we reviewing the Model 3 Standard Range Plus. The car’s EPA score is 133 MPGe and 240 miles of range… but in our real world test we got a score of 192 miles […]

Model 3 Standard Range Plus Range Test – Explained

There have been so many questions and misinformation roaming around out there about the so-called “Model 3 Standard Range” vs the “Standard Range Plus” and whether or not the 220/240 mile range quoted is overly optimistic.
