2020 Volvo S60 T5 Momentum Review: A Swedish Delight
When you review a lot of vehicles like I do, many start to blend together. So it’s nice when something stands out. It makes it worthy of being written about here at 95Octane, where our motto is “Cars That Don’t Suck.”

Dodge Challenger GT AWD Review: A Muscle Car for All Seasons

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.

2020 Ram Rebel 1500 EcoDiesel Review

2020 Ram Rebel 1500 EcoDiesel Review
The word “rebel” has some deep-rooted placements in automotive history as well as film (RIP James Dean). And, if I do say so, it’s an awesome name for a trim of a vehicle that does its own thing and really sticks out with personality and excitement.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review: A Mid-Engine Marvel
Corvette lovers have been dreaming of a mid-engined version of the great American sports car for decades. Now, for 2020, that wish has been fulfilled.

2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD Review: A Snowy First Drive
I recently had the opportunity to spend some time in the beautiful, snow-capped mountains of central Colorado, where Rocky Mountain Redline assembled a variety of all-wheel drive vehicles to demonstrate their prowess in wintry conditions. Among the cars and crossovers was one of the first ever 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWDs to roll off the assembly line.

2020 Toyota Highlander First Drive Review: A Handsome and Efficient Daily Driver

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.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 First Drive: This Snake is Super
If Sean Spicer, former United States Press Secretary and Dancing with the Stars contestant drove the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang, he’d declare it the “best Mustang ever produced. Period.” He’d be right. The latest Mustang to carry the late Carroll Shelby’s name on it is the best Mustang Ford has ever produced, pulling off the daily driving duties while still being able to rip your face off on the track.

The Nissan GT-R Is Still Amazing at 50
The Nissan GT-R first came on the scene all the way back in 1969 as the Skyline GT-R. After five successive generations, and a five year hiatus from 2002 to 2007, the Skyline gave way to the GT-R, which has seen a couple of revamps, first in 2011, and again in 2017.

2019 BMW i8 Roadster Review: Hybrid Power, Wind in Your Hair
Looks are everything to so many people. When looking at cars, the aesthetics are what draw people in. I remember the first time I saw the BMW i8 Roadster. As journalists, we aren’t supposed to be so smitten and biased based simply on looks.

2020 GMC Sierra HD: The Towing King of the Road
While I’ve driven lots of pickup trucks over the years, I actually don’t have a ton of experience towing things behind them. Thanks to my recent experience driving the new 2020 GMC Sierra HD, I feel much more confident pulling a trailer behind a truck.

2019 Mini JCW Review: A Breath of Fresh Subcompact Air
Many of the best bands of all time have great front men. And the best of them have stage presence, personality and showmanship. Well, if my review vehicle were a front man, it’d be Freddie Mercury.
