2019 Hyundai Nexo Review | The Ultimate Unicorn

Hyundai’s Nexo isn’t the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in America but it is the first H2 car that actually makes sense. It’s attractive (IMHO), does up to 380 miles on a tank and has about the same room inside as the average mid-sized gasoline crossover. Of course the “chicken and egg” problem is ever […]

The $35,000 Tesla | Does It Really Exist? Yes and No.

So we ordered a “base” Model 3 (plus blue paint) six weeks ago. We’ve seen our order date come and go, then disappear completely. What’d going on? Well, it turns out Tesla ha shifted gears and has decided to ditch the “Standard Interior” and the “Standard Battery” and just use the “Standard Range Plus” model […]

2019 Mazda Mazda3 Review

The more I drove the all-new Mazda3, the more I came to the conclusion that Mazda’s new compact sedan should be seen as an alternative to the Acura ILX, the defunct Buick Verano and perhaps an Audi A3 rather than just a Corolla or Civic competitor. The new 3 handles impeccably, but the real win […]

2019 Kia Telluride Review

Looking for the most CUV legroom in America? Look no further than the 2020 Kia Telluride, the biggest, squarest Kia ever sold in America. How big is it? Well you’ll find 8 inches more legroom overall in the Telluride than the Mazda CX-9 and 5 inches more than the enormous Chevy Traverse and even more […]

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. In our recent video I said that the real world range of the Standard Range Plus was 190-195 miles, […]

A List – The Best Cars and SUVs of 2018 & 2019

Let’s take a moment to talk about the best cars, crossovers and SUVs I drove in 2018 and what you should be on the lookout for in 2019.

What Is A Luxury Car? Can A Kia Compete?

Is a luxury car a luxury car because of the logo on the hood? Or because of the interior? Is it because of the way it coddles you? The gadgets it offers? The powerful engine under the hood? How about the quietness of the interior? If you could have all those things but none of […]

2018 Compact Crossover Off Road Comparison

Thanks to an event called the Trail Trek Tour I had the opportunity to test a variety of every-day crossovers on some back-country trails in Virginia. The results were about as I expected but there were a few crossovers that did better than I thought. Why no Subaru? Why no Rogue? Why no X? The […]

2016 Mazda CX-9 Child Seat Review

The CX-9 is the family friendly crossover with a touch of Mazda’s handling magic. For 2016 they have also added a new twist: a 2nd row seat that can stay in place with a child seat attached.

2019 / 2020 Toyota Sienna | Reliable, But Is It Relevant?

The Toyota Sienna soldiers on with minimal changes for 2019 and 2020 while we wait for a complete redesign expected for the 2021 model year. While we wait for the next gen model, the Sienna is up against tough competition from the inexpensive Grand Caravan (which may be ancient, but it’s also crazy cheap), the […]

2019 Kia Telluride Review

Looking for the most CUV legroom in America? Look no further than the 2020 Kia Telluride, the biggest, squarest Kia ever sold in America. How big is it? Well you’ll find 8 inches more legroom overall in the Telluride than the Mazda CX-9 and 5 inches more than the enormous Chevy Traverse and even more […]

2019 Chevrolet Blazer First Look

Chevy is rejoining the mid-sized 2-row crossover battle by resurrecting the Blazer name for their latest CUV. Most closely related to the Cadillac XT5, you could also look at the Blazer as a right-sized Traverse. Similar to the Santa Fe a 4-cylinder engine is standard but shoppers can opt for a powerful 3.6L V6 and […]

2019 Honda Pilot Review

2019 brings a fairly mild refresh to Honda’s 3-row crossover. Can a more rugged bumper and some new software help keep the Pilot on top? Let’s find out.

Latest Truck Reviews

2019 Sierra AT4 | Deal Or No Deal? Off Road Edition.

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? Because it’s a little less expensive than the parts piecemeal and vs an aftermarket tweak it’s fully supported by GMC. The […]

2019 RAM 1500 Review

Looking for the best all-around half ton pickup truck in America? Or perhaps the ultimate “cowboy Cadillac”? Look no farther than the new RAM 1500 for either. For 2019, FCA reworked just about everything except for their trusty HEMI V8. The all-new interior is easily the best in the segment, towing numbers are stout and […]

2019 Ford Ranger Review

If you’re shopping for a smaller pickup truck in America you’ve been stuck with options that were less than modern to put it mildly. But all that is changing with a new Ranger from Ford and of course the upcoming Jeep Gladiator which should really put the fox amongst the hens.

GMC Sierra HD 2500 3500 First Look

With towing capacity over 35,000 pounds and the first 10-speed automatic in the segment GMC has turned the tables on Ford and RAM. For the moment.
