The 2016 GMC Sierra Denali: Intelligent Indulgence

The 2016 GMC Sierra Denali: Intelligent Indulgence
Have you ever had a dream that was so vivid that when you wake up, you feel like you’re still in it? This just happened to me – the other morning I woke up from a dream about pick-up trucks.

A Week with the Lexus RC 350 F Sport

A Week with the Lexus RC 350 F Sport
About a year ago, I took my first drive in the Lexus RC 350 F Sport. At the time, I was given the choice of driving it and the mighty 467 hp Lexus RC F, so I wasn’t exactly able to give it 100% of my attention.

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus GS F

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus GS F
One of the cars I’ve really been looking forward too since it was first announced has been the new Lexus GS F. After the good times I had in the Lexus RC F last year, I was wondering how well the performance pedigree would hold up on a larger, 4-door sedan.

Review: 2016 Honda Pilot

Review: 2016 Honda Pilot
What car do you drive yourself? That’s the question I’m usually asked by readers. Truth be told, I don’t actually own a vehicle, per se. My wife has a 2013 Honda Pilot that she loves. We use it to pull our camper, and believe it or not, it does a great job.

Review: 2016 Nissan Maxima

Review: 2016 Nissan Maxima
Not since Nissan’s 3rd generation Maxima has the midsize “four-door sports car” or “4DSC” in Nissan-speak been truly spectacular, at least on the design end of things. It seems that the Maxima has had trouble figuring out what it wants to look like – and now for its eighth generation car, Nissan has pretty much gone balls-out in terms of styling in order to recapture that 4DSC spirit back.

Road Test: 2015 Mustang EcoBoost

Road Test: 2015 Mustang EcoBoost
The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost has a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged motor making 310 horsepower, and 320 lb-ft. of torque. That power is sent to the back axle via a 6 speed manual transmission where it is presented to a limited slip differential with a very spritely 3.55 final drive ratio.

Review: 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring

Review: 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring
As families have migrated more and more to SUVs and crossovers in recent years, the mid-size car market has been shrinking. But that has forced automakers to step up their mid-size game in recent years, and there are currently several excellent entries in this once boring category.

First Drive Review: 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 SE

First Drive Review: 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 SE
Recently, I had the chance to see how a RAV4 was capable enough to run with the big boys in rally racing. Now, I’ve spent some time behind the wheel of two new models of the RAV4 that Toyota is bringing to market for 2016.

Review: 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo

Review: 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo
It’s kind of tough to get people convinced that Kia is making a genuinely good car. However, the 2016 redesign takes the Optima to a level people would not have thought of even just a few years ago.

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX450h

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX450h
Let’s be honest, most hybrids are not thought of as very exciting. In keeping with 95Octane’s motto of “Cars that Don’t Suck,” we decided to cover a hybrid that adds some excitement and sportiness to the genre.

Daily Driving the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4×4

Daily Driving the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4×4
A couple of months back, I had a chance to rough up the new Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport and Off-Road editions in a challenging course of dirt, gravel and mud. Now, I’ve spent a few days driving the TRD Sport 4×4 version in a more typical everyday environment in and around my hometown of Chicago.

Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Camaro SS

Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Camaro SS
Chevrolet recently kicked off an epic 48-state tour of the U.S. with a convoy of its new 2016 Camaros leading the way. I was fortunate to be chosen for the trip, and got to drive the leg that kicked off in Salt Lake City, Utah, and ended in Bozeman, Montana.

Review: 2016 Audi TT

Review: 2016 Audi TT
The first generation Audi TT was about as much of statement car as you could make in the modern age. Perhaps even more than an exotic supercar like a new Ferrari or Lamborghini flagship because power and beauty is what’s expected from them.

Review: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium

Review: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium
When you think Toyota and hybrid, likely the Prius probably comes to mind first. However, at 95Octane we like our hybrids with a little more to them than the Prius. So, I am glad to get to review a hybrid that’s more my style and more well-suited for 95Octane.

After The Hype: The 2016 MX-5

After The Hype: The 2016 MX-5
Everyone loves to mention it. ‘Body roll.’ Apparently the car is so good, that it is judged mainly for the way it pitches into a corner. You know… suspension doesn’t have to be rock hard in order for a car to negotiate a curve.
