  • Achates Power Brings an Efficiency Revolution To Detroit
    Thus far, the North American International Auto Show has been a truck festival  – more specifically, a green-truck fest. Ram showed a hybrid 1500. Ford revealed their V6 diesel. Chevrolet surprised with an inline-six diesel. Clearly the Big Three are looking at the calendar, with a big red circle over the 2025 CAFE standards looming […]

  • 2019 Hyundai Veloster – N Stands for Next
    It wasn’t a secret that Hyundai was set to launch its next Veloster in 2018. It also was fairly certain that there would be a turbo model available. Yet Hyundai still managed to stuff a surprise up its sleeve – the high-performance N version will come to America. Hyundai promises “up to” 275 horsepower and […]

  • Sky’s the Limit: Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept in Detroit
    In years past, flagships were often the largest and snazziest sedan a company had to offer. With consumer tastes seemingly permanently shifted to crossovers and SUVs, that standard is more frequently being borne by those machines. Lexus has latched on to this, debuting its Limitless Concept today in Detroit. Not yet a production model, the […]

  • 2019 Kia Forte Sedan: Vastly Improved But Unlikely to Best the Hatchback
    Today at the North American International Auto Show, Kia Motors bestowed the all-new 2019 Forte upon the world. Granted, it’ll mainly be in the hands those entering the workforce for the first time, but those budget-minded youngsters will be please to learn that the third-generation Forte boasts improved fuel economy and features. It’s not all touchscreens […]

  • The Next Mach 1 Will Be Electric, but Will It Be a Mustang? UPDATE: High Performance Electric SUV?
    One of the talking points at Ford’s reveal of the North American market Ranger, Edge ST, and the latest coming of the Mustang Bullitt, was the automaker’s commitment of $11 billion dollars to the further electrification of Ford’s product lineup. An upcoming hybrid version of the F-150 pickup truck was announced and the presentation ended […]

  • 2019 Toyota Avalon: Open Wide for a Modern, and More Aggressive Boulevard Cruiser
    As we told you not too long ago, Toyota’s sticking with its traditional car lineup in the face of declining sales — clinging to it, really. How else could you explain not only the continued existence of the full-size Avalon sedan, but a wholly new generation of it? That’s what we have here this morning in […]

  • 2019 Acura RDX Prototype Debuts in Detroit
    Crossovers and SUVs are the gravy train from which just about every manufacturer is currently drinking, more than happy to quench the buying public’s seemingly insatiable thirst for high riding all-wheel drive machines. Acura’s been in the game for ages with the MDX, RDX, and departed weirdo ZDX. After vanquishing the unfortunate guillotine grille from […]

  • QOTD: Is This Truck For You?
    It’s NAIAS week in Detroit, signaling a parade of press conferences and more shrimp than what’s found in all the North Atlantic. While buzzwords this year are “mobility” and “disruption,” the Detroit Three still found time to show us new versions of machines in my favorite segment, the full-sized pickup truck market. Chevy showed off […]

  • Junkyard Find: 1995 Mercury Tracer Trio
    Kicky appearance packages and vivid colors were all the rage among Detroit makers of cheap econoboxes during the late 1980s through middle 1990s, and so it became necessary for the Dearborn masterminds to create a Mercurized Ford Escort that would enthrall younger car shoppers. Thus was the Mercury Tracer Trio born. Here’s a screaming purple […]

  • Ford Resurrects the Mustang Bullitt as Film’s 50th Anniversary Nears
    The first Bullitt go-round was a 2001 attempt to upgrade the Mustang GT with a modicum of extra power and a styling nod to an old movie that couldn’t be more forgettable, were it not for a stellar chase sequence. The 2001-2002 Mustang Bullitt, however, couldn’t do anything about its facelifted 1990s sheetmetal, which hardly […]
