Veloster Turbo Rally

2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally: Improved Handling, Same Great Design

I recently spend a week behind the wheel of the 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally Edition and when that week was done, I had a new appreciation for a car that I really enjoyed when it was introduced in the lower performance Turbo package a few years back – while still loving the unique 3-door design of the funky little hatchback.
Optima SX Limited

The 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo Far Better than My Favorite Socks

The new 2016 Kia Optima was the subject of a Super Bowl commercial featuring Hollywood tough guy Christopher Walken in which they likened the sporty midsized sedan to a really flashy pair of socks, but after spending a week driving the turbocharged Optima, I feel that they are selling the car a little short – as this car is far better than my favorite socks.
Tacoma TRD Offroad

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Works Like a Half Ton

I recently had a chance to spend a week testing the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road and after putting it through all of the same punishment as I do the larger half-ton trucks, this truck impressed me in every way like no “small” truck I have tested – from off-roading to towing to everyday driving, the Tacoma TRD Off-Road rocks.

The 2016 Audi S6 Offers Incognito Twin Turbo V8 Fun Year Round

While many modern performance cars are adorned with exterior features which make their purpose in the world unmistakable, the Audi S6 packs high performance, twin turbo V8 fun into a sleek, subtle luxury sedan – making it an awesome option for someone who wants a very fast sedan that blends in with the crowd.

Hyundai Azera Deserves Attention When Shopping Luxury Sedans on a Budget

I recently had a chance to spend a week behind the wheel of the Hyundai Azera Limited and after my experience, I continue to wonder why more people hunting for a luxury level vehicle on a budget don’t give this large midsized sedan a closer look – as it offers all of the goodies that you get from some of the more cost effective luxury brands without the massive price tag.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Review: Loving America's Clean Diesel

I recently had a chance to spend a week driving the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel and while the American car-buying public is hesitant to accept diesel engine technology, I can say without any doubt that this is the best engine option for the Chevy Cruze – both in terms of driving dynamics and fuel economy.
2015 EcoBoost Mustang Convertible

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Review: A Small Engine Worth the Hype

There are plenty of people in the automotive world who have criticized the decision to offer the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder in the 2015 Ford Mustang but having had the chance to spend a week driving the new pony car with the tiny engine, I can safely say that no one should judge this car without first driving it – as this fuel-friendly engine is worth every bit of the hype.

The 2015 Chrysler 300C Platinum: Premium Luxury, Muscle Car Spirit

I recently had a chance to spend a week driving the 2015 Chrysler 300C Platinum and in my opinion, this is the most underrated luxury sedan sold in America – with a stunning interior, Hemi power and a price around $45,000 when very well appointed making it more powerful, less expensive and just as swanky as the high priced European competitors.

Putting the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD All-Terrain to Work

While the package name All-Terrain might lead some to believe that this is an unstoppable heavy duty pickup that will conquer any trail, the truth is that the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD All-Terrain is more of a luxury trimline that can still do every bit as much work as any other truck in the company lineup – including handling muddy trails as well as almost any heavy duty truck in the segment.
