If you thought the 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge looks familiar, well, it is. This is essentially a coupe-like version of the XC40 Recharge and it's also Volvo's first dedicated battery-electric model. There are key design changes to distinguish the C40, namely the roofline, which is roughly 3.0 inches lower than the XC40, and that dramatic rear end with the cool rear spoiler. … [Read more...] about 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge First Look: The Coupe-Like Swedish EV

There … [Read more...] about 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat: Absolute Insanity

Alex likes it a lot more than expected but the factories are too narrow for the amount of power you get even with this Premium dual-motor model. At 225/55R19s, they're not that wide; in fact, they're narrower than the rubber you'd find a range-topping Honda Civic Touring. They're also Michelin Primacy … [Read more...] about 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Tire Upgrade: Will it Affect the Range?
