The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Bends The World To Its Will

Only a handful of Americans will buy a 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser.

So I threw this $87,000 legend off its laurels and into a sand storm to see how much heat it […]

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon?

Here in America, we find ourselves with a sudden wealth of wagons as a nice byproduct of the crossover boom. Well, maybe not a wealth, but there’s more available now than in many years past.

The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon Is A Gorgeous Grand Tourer But I’m Not Sure Who It’s For

Volkswagen really needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. Or gets out of a financial and regulatory prison sentence, I guess. And the new 2018 Volkswagen Arteon sedan has somehow emerged as the poster boy for this problem.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

I Drove The 1,000 HP Hellcat-Powered ‘Jalop Gold’ AMC Javelin; It Was Bonkers

In just a quick glance, you can tell that this AMC Javelin isn’t even remotely messing around. A menacing face, a huge hood, and massive fenders wrapped over three-piece HRE wheels. A thousand horses from a 6.2-liter supercharged Dodge Hellcat engine. An opulent gold paint job.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 Is How You Make ‘The Best Car In The World’ Better

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is best known as “the best car in the world.” The Mercedes-Maybach is built off of the regular S-Class, and that presents it with the challenge of making the best car, somehow, impossibly, better.

The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS Is A Better BRZ—And That’s A Problem

Let’s play a game of call and response. I say “Ford Mustang”, you say “Cars and Coffee mishaps.” I say “Tesla Model 3,” you say “panel gaps.” But if I say “Subaru BRZ,” you’re most likely going to first give a knowing nod of appreciation but then lament “needs more power.”Read more… Continue Reading at […]

Here’s Why Subaru Thinks It Can Charge You $50,000 For The WRX STI Type RA

“Not a chance.” That’s how most of you will react when reading the headlines talking about the $50,000 Subaru WRX STI Type RA. Before slamming your fingers onto your rage-spit-covered keyboard and typing out your 2,500-word magnum opus of hatred, allow me a few words to explain how this is basically Subaru’s own…Read more… Continue […]

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace Is Pretty But It’s No Performance Car

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is a noble effort in the quest to make the small crossover SUV/sports car mashup aesthetic work. It’s decent to drive, too. But don’t get too carried away convincing yourself that this is a family-friendly F-Type; the E-Pace’s value proposition is more about style than substance.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2018 Kia Stinger GT Is The Real Deal

In car reviews, recounting how much “better” the Korean automakers are than they were in decades past has become painfully cliché. It doesn’t need to be said that Hyundai and Kia make world-class cars these days and have for some time, except in one area: performance. This is what the 2018 Kia Stinger GT aims […]

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 Is A High-Tech Baby Stroller With A Trick Variable Compression Engine

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is as plush as it is pretty. And for better or worse, you’ll never notice that it has an engine unlike anything else on the road right now. In fact, in this crossover, you’ll barely realize you’re driving at all.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Don’t Be Scared Of The Ducati Monster

Saddling up on a machine called “Monster” from a company known for building ferociously fast motorcycles might seem intimidating, but the 2018 Ducati Monster 821 is really pretty placid. It might not be a track day choice, but the usability of its power make it a damn fine daily rider.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

I Drove A $169,000 Ford Mustang And My Favorite Part Was Everything

I was blasé about driving the Classic Recreations Ford Mustang GT500 because of its name. “Recreation” sounds like “copy”, and why bother with a knockoff when you’re spending six figures on a car? But between the look, sound, and good lord that shifter, this is easily one of the most exciting cars I’ve ever driven.Read […]

The 2018 Lincoln Continental Is The Car Lincoln Should’ve Made 20 Years Ago

Lincoln made a car called the “Continental” 20 years ago. You don’t remember it. No one remembers it. That’s because it was bad. But now there’s a new Continental, and the 2018 Lincoln Continental is the Lincoln should’ve made a long time ago.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com
