Dodge Challenger GT AWD Review: A Muscle Car for All Seasons
Over the years, I’ve driven a number of vehicles based on FCA’s full-size car platform, which underpins the Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Chrysler 300. Most of the models I’ve been in have been muscular rear-wheel drive cars with giant HEMI V8s, and crazy amounts of horsepower.

Fixing the Pontiac Aztek

Fixing the Pontiac Aztek
The much-derided Pontial Aztek sits atop many lists for being the ugliest car ever produced. And while it might have had some redeeming qualities, its exterior design most certainly was not one of them. But with a little nip here and a tuck there, could the Aztek have been a much better looking vehicle?

2020 Toyota Highlander First Drive Review: A Handsome and Efficient Daily Driver
If you go back in the rewind machine to 2001, most of the SUVs on the market were rugged, body-on-frame models which drove much more like trucks than like cars. Then, Toyota came along with the Highlander and shook up the growing segment with a vehicle that rode much more like a car or a minivan than a truck, and expanding the daily driving appeal of SUVs pretty dramatically.

2019 Audi Q8 Review: A Refined and Modern SUV

2019 Audi Q8 Review: A Refined and Modern SUV
I’m the opposite of a trendsetter or even a trend-follower. Heck, I still wear flannel shirts as if Nirvana was about to top the charts again (if only). So, when I say that sporty SUVs and crossovers, are all the rage, you can rest assured that they still are in vogue.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Specs and Pricing
After months of hype, Ford has finally pulled back the covers on its pure electric crossover, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E. This EV may borrow its name from Ford’s pony cars, but other than a couple of nods to the Mustang’s design, the Mach-E is truly its own thing – more Jaguar I-Pace than American muscle car.

Carspotting Japan: “Hot Crack” Suzuki Wagon R Graffiti Car
This crazy, graffiti-covered, custom overhauled Suzuki Wagon R is a vehicle that likely causes everyone to stare, including my happy ass. It’s a car that’s just too wild not to photograph. As I hastily took pics, a million questions rushed through my head.

2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Avalon Get AWD Versions
Here in the midwest and other places where it gets cold and snowy, all-wheel drive vehicles generally outsell their front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive variants.
