SUV Rising: 2017 Nissan Rogue

Posted By MattKeegan 2131 days ago on Automotive - A compact crossover with a growing audience. The Nissan Rogue was a latecomer to the compact SUV segment, but has certainly made up for lost time. Introduced in 2008 and overhauled in 2014, the Nissan Rogue is now one of the top sellers in the segment, trailing only the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, and […]

PHEV Minivan: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Posted By MattKeegan 2017 days ago on Automotive - The industry’s first-ever hybrid minivan has arrived. Chrysler arrived late to the hybrid game releasing 2009 MY Dodge Durango Hybrid and Chrysler Aspen Hybrid models in the summer of 2008. Sharing the two-mode hybrid system developed jointly with GM, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, the Chrysler duo were discontinued a few months later as Chrysler’s survival was […]

Updated 2018 Ford F-150 Features New Gas and Diesel Engines

Posted By MattKeegan 2085 days ago on Automotive - A robust mid-product-cycle update for Ford’s big pickup truck. For 40 consecutive years, the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling pickup truck in America. Indeed, it has also been the best-selling passenger vehicle for most of that time too, a streak that goes back 35 years. Last overhauled in 2015, the 2018 Ford F-150 reflects […]

Driven: 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Posted By MattKeegan 1977 days ago on Automotive - An attainable luxury model from Britain’s iconic SUV maker. Consider the Discovery Sport your cost-effective Land Rover, the SUV you’ll want until you can afford a Range Rover. This five-passenger, all-wheel drive utility vehicle starts at under $40,000 and delivers a handsome product in an altogether tidy package. When you think of “Land Rover” there […]

Luxury Fervor: 2017 Jaguar XE

Posted By MattKeegan 2149 days ago on Automotive - If you don’t yet have Jaguar on your luxury vehicle shopping list yet, it is time to include it. Once considered an afterthought in the luxury segment, this distinctly British brand has made a name for itself. A string of new models, including the Jaguar XE, have effectively turned this marque around. A 2017 Jaguar […]

Performance Beast: 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE SVR Coupe

Posted By MattKeegan 2041 days ago on Automotive - When it comes to the F-TYPE, the SVR tops them all. Ever since the F-TYPE leaped upon the world stage in 2014, Jaguar’s sports car has turned heads and invited comparisons to other potent machines, including the BMW Z4, Porsche 911, and the Mercedes-Benz SLK Class, to name a few. Not only did Jaguar seek […]

Luxury Pioneer: 2017 Lexus ES

Posted By MattKeegan 2126 days ago on Automotive - The Lexus ES is a luxury sedan requiring no introduction. Now in its sixth generation, the ES line is one of two models that launched the Lexus brand in 1989 (the flagship LS is the other one) and remains Lexus’ top-selling model behind the RX SUV. The ES line has always represented a front-wheel drive […]

Nothing Ironic About the Hyundai Ioniq

Posted By MattKeegan 2012 days ago on Automotive - Not a Prius fighter…or is it? Some may say the Hyundai Ioniq is this Korean manufacturer’s answer to the Toyota Prius. Hyundai insists otherwise, citing its own effort to deliver the most affordable and efficient cars the world over. Maybe there is a touch of irony here, but what’s important is Hyundai’s approach to vehicle […]

All-Wheel Drive Edge: 2017 Subaru Legacy

Posted By MattKeegan 2081 days ago on Automotive - New Sport trim adds pop to the Legacy line. Subaru can no longer be considered a niche car manufacturer. Fresh off its eighth consecutive year of record growth, this burgeoning Japanese brand continues to attract a wider base of American car shoppers, thanks in large part to its SUV-skewed lineup. But that’s not the only […]

Compact Performance: 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO

Posted By MattKeegan 1976 days ago on Automotive - Top-end Sentra model offers NISMO touches, enhanced performance. The 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO offers the look of the brand’s motorsport division, but it falls short of expectations. That doesn’t mean the Sentra NISMO isn’t a fun car, rather the production version is a step-down from the Sentra Concept shown a few years earlier. From Concept […]
