Only Minor Tweaks for 2021 | Honda Pilot

Honda’s popular Pilot soldiers on for 2021 with only one main change: the 6-speed automatic found in lower end trims has been replaced by the 9-speed automatic that used to be reserved for the top trims only. This means all models get slightly better fuel economy, better performance and [sometimes] rougher shifts. Aside from that, […]

The Best X3? | 2020 BMW X3 Plug In Hybrid

BMW’s X3 xDrive30e might just be the best X3 you can buy. Although EV range isn’t enormous, the PHEV system is smooth and powerful, it manages to be less expensive than a comparable non-hybrid, had a federal tax credit and will save the average commuter some cash.

Towing Champ, Now With Extra Crazy | 2021 Dodge Durango

Clearly Dodge couldn’t let Lamborghini have the most powerful SUV for sale, or Mercedes have the most powerful thing with three rows so they grabbed a 710 HP Hellcat V8 and jammed it under the hood of family hauling Durango. And for extra measure, they made sure it’ll out-tow every full-size SUV in America save […]

What’s It Like To Drive? | 2021 RAV4 Prime

If you were hoping the RAV4 Prime would be the ultimate sports crossover with a plug, you may be disappointed. If on the other hand you’re after AWD traction, a quick launch to 60 MPH, high fuel economy and excellent EV range, the Prime has that in spades. With a curb weight at up to […]

2022 VW Tiguan First Look

The best selling Volkswagen is now the Tiguan, whether we’re talking world-wide sales or sales in N. America. It’s easy to understand why, it’s practically sized, well priced and offers one of the only third rows in a small crossover.

Rugged or Compromised? You Decide | 2020 Jeep Cherokee

Some design priorities are incompatible. Great on-road handling and impeccable off-road manners are usually mutually exclusive but Jeep did their best with the Cherokee. For 2020 there is seemingly a Cherokee for everyone, from inexpensive FWD options with low ground clearance to the Trailhawk model which is arguably one of the most capable crossovers ever […]

The Baja Jeep | 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave

Jeep is going deep down the rabbit hole of off-road vehicles targeted at very specific audiences with their new Gladiator Mojave. Sadly I live pretty far from the desert and due to the lock-down I had to make do with our usual forest trail, hopefully I’ll be able to get this guy out on sand […]
