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 … [Read more...] about 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat: Absolute Insanity
A few months have passed since we've got the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. 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?
The 2022 Acura MDX may just be the best luxury crossover that starts under $60,000. Why? Because it does so many things well yet offers such a strong value.
