2020 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X Review: It’s All About the Drivetrain
Let’s face it. The Nissan Frontier isn’t exactly a modern truck. The current model been largely the same since it first came out all the way back in 2005. Nissan has indicated that a complete redesign is in the works for 2021, but the 2020 model does have a big difference that previews the new truck, and that’s its engine and transmission.

RAV4 Prime Price: Not Bad for a 302hp AWD PHEV

RAV4 Prime Price: Not Bad for a 302hp AWD PHEV
I’m already a fan of the current Toyota RAV4. It’s quite good in both its gas and hybrid versions, and represents a major upgrade over the previous generation, both aesthetically and functionally. So when Toyota announced it was working on a plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4 that made 302 horsepower, my curiosity was definitely piqued.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert
When the Jeep Gladiator came out last year, it marked the first time Jeep had made a pickup truck in decades. Until now, the most capable version you could buy has been the Rubicon. That’s still the case if you’re planning on crawling slowly over rocks and steep grades, but if you’re looking for a Gladiator that can tackle sand dunes, undulating hills, and dirt roads as fast as possible, the Mojave is the better choice, and overall, I think it’s the best Gladiator model you can buy at the moment.

Dodge Van Racing is Japan at its Best

Dodge Van Racing is Japan at its Best
Japan is home to both some very cool things, and some very weird things. One of the coolest things is a racing series that sees Japanese drivers hooning old short-wheelbase Dodge vans around a racetrack. Apparently, the sport grew out of a common practice for motorcycle racers to buy these vans and use them to haul gear and bikes to the track.

The Hellwagon Is a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Wagoneer
I always loved the look of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It combined the best elements of an SUV and a station wagon, with its tall body and classic “woodie” paneling on its sides. Over its many years in production, it typically packed a hefty V8 engine.
