Track Day: 2016 Ford Performance Shelby GT350/GT350R

Track Day: 2016 Ford Performance Shelby GT350/GT350R
Ford Performance was kind enough to invite me behind the wheel of the new Shelby GT350 and GT350R sports cars to see just what these tricked out Mustangs could do. I spent the day at the beautiful Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin – one of America’s greatest road courses, learning about Ford and Shelby heritage and engineering, as well as hands-on time on the track. There was a time not so long ago when you might have questioned whether a Mustang could hang with the big boys on a road circuit.

First Drive Review: 2016 Volvo S60 Cross Country

First Drive Review: 2016 Volvo S60 Cross Country
Volvo is a beloved brand that has a reputation for being safe, family-oriented and durable for many decades. That’s a pretty nice feather in their cap, but how has the brand adapted as time has passed to the consumers who demand progressively plusher details in their automobiles to reflect their lifestyles?

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX 350

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX 350
In all honesty, I’ve never been a big fan of the current-gen Lexus RX. Its styling was just too conservative, and the driving experience too disengaged for me. Sure, it’s practical and reasonably upscale, but exciting, it isn’t.

Review: 2015 Ford Edge

Review: 2015 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge has lived up to its name since it was first introduced in 2007. You may not initially think of it as an “edgy” vehicle, but it was actually ahead of its time back in its early days.

Review: 2015 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport

Review: 2015 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport
I’ll start out by saying the Lexus GS 350 F-Sport is a paradigm in contradiction. It’s a car that is both conservative, but bold. Its looks are both brash but simple. The engine is both controlled and yet sporty.

Review: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium Fastback

Review: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium Fastback
When Ford first announced that it was redesigning the Mustang for 2015, it dropped the bomb that it would be the first version of the pony car to offer a 4-cylinder engine option in decades. But unlike the underpowered engines of days gone by, the 2.3-liter

Review: 2016 Acura MDX

Review: 2016 Acura MDX
Most carmakers are in a battle of keeping up with the Joneses and constantly wage a battle of one-upmanship. Such is the case for my tester this week – the 2016 Acura MDX. Although, truth be told, in the third-row luxury SUV segment, the MDX is the Joneses and everyone else seems to be trying to keep up with them.

Review: 2016 Hyundai Tucson

Review: 2016 Hyundai Tucson
In the burgeoning world of crossovers, a new member taking to the fray isn’t exactly surprising. It’s like adding another “Housewives of ___” series, really. So, Hyundai’s wholly new Tucson doesn’t exactly call for the 21-gun salute as it steps onto the stage, since everyone and their automotive journalist brother has expected the new CUV for quite a while.

First Drive Review: 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD
Toyota has been making some of the most durable and off-road worthy pickup trucks for as long as I can remember. The truck I think is at the sweet spot of their product line is the Tacoma.

Review: 2015 Ford Focus

Review: 2015 Ford Focus
I could do a bunch of bad puns around the word “focus” for this car review. But that’s probably been done and is kind of cliché. I could say that Ford had lost focus on the compact car segment over the last couple years, but that would be incorrect anyway.

Review: 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS400
A coupe with four doors? Who ever heard of such a thing? Actually, it’s not that rare and I got to drive one. Remember, there’s a second definition of the word coupe, at least according to good Mr.

First Drive Review: 2016 Scion iM

First Drive Review: 2016 Scion iM
For the first time that I can remember, Scion is releasing two new car models at the same time. While the Scion iA compact sedan is targeted at urban daily drivers, the iM is made young adventurers who like to get out and hit the road.

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Ever since it was first announced, I’ve been really excited about the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Its fresh new design has tremendous visual appeal, and Mazda managed to trim 150 pounds to get the car back to fighting weight after years of gradual bloat.

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda CX-3

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda CX-3
A few years back, the compact crossover market was limited to a couple of vehicles, including the Nissan Juke and Buick Enclave. However, the segment is growing logarithmically, with several new entries on the way in the coming months alone.

Review: 2015 Acura TLX 3.5L SH-AWD

Review: 2015 Acura TLX 3.5L SH-AWD
Acura is one carmaker that got out of the gates quickly, picked up speed and then completely lost its way on the course. Great cars like the Legend and the Integra back in the 1980s set the tone for the Japanese luxury brand, and then all hell broke loose.
