  • 2019 Hyundai Tucson N Line

    Hyundai recently got into the performance game with the new i30 N and Veloster N models developed by Hyundai N, the Korean automaker's in-house tuner. These models sit at the top of the Hyundai N portfolio, with a tamer N Line range to be introduced to suit customers looking for milder mods. The latest member of the N Line range has now been revealed as the Tucson N Line. The N Line option can be ordered across the Tucson lineup and brings the compact crossover SUV sportier touches inside and out, along with suspension and steering upgrades. Those upgrades include stiffer suspension springs...

  • 2019 Cadillac CT6-V
    Cadillac CT6-V will die another day, brand bumps starting price

    The Cadillac CT6's future, in general, remains in question, but the hotter CT6-V isn't dead yet. The brand announced it will build another "installment" of the cars due to high demand. Cars Direct reported on Wednesday that the Cadillac CT6-V will live again, but the next batch of 4.2-liter...

  • 2019 Bentley Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner

  • Ford builds last Taurus in North America on March 1, 2019
    Ford ends North American production of Taurus

    In a sign of the times, Ford in 2015 unveiled its redesigned Taurus in China, where large sedans still sell in significant numbers. With sedan sales on the decline in these parts, Ford didn't even bother introducing the redesigned car here and instead continued producing the previous generation for...

  • 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
    First drive review: 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon conquers nearly anything

    If it can’t climb up the hill, it’ll just pull itself over the hill. That’s life for the 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. For 2019, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon loses some weight, gains some useful technology, refines its edges, but loses zero capability. I flew out to Las Vegas to put the...

  • 2019 Cadillac CT6-V
    Cadillac CT6, Chevy Impala production to continue into 2020

    Two General Motors sedans previously confirmed to cease North American production this year will live on a bit longer.

  • 2019 Mazda 3  -  first drive  -  Los Angeles, January 2019

    Tablet-like touchscreens have become the ubiquitous interfaces of choice, and they’re seemingly everywhere in daily life, on everything from thermostats to coffee makers and refrigerators. But Mazda really doesn’t think they belong in cars—or at least anywhere near the driver’s seat. It wasn’t a decision that was hastily made, according to company officials. However, as they started studying the effects of touchscreens on driving safety (and driving comfort), it soon became clear what the priorities should be with this completely new system that makes its debut...

  • 2019 Cadillac CT6, 2018 New York auto show
    Pricey Platinum trim could be last chance to snag CT6 with V-8

    Cadillac has a new, brand-exclusive V-8 called the Blackwing that debuts in the 2019 CT6. Initially announced last November for a high-performance CT6-V model limited to just 275 units, Cadillac in January added that the 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 would also be offered in the regular CT6...

  • 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
    Review update: 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro yearns to get lost, and found

    Twenty minutes from my front door is nowhere. And that’s somewhere I want to be. That’s true for many of us who live in Denver. It’s probably true for the 30 people who will move to Denver today, the 30 people who will move here tomorrow, and the next day, too. The greatest lie...

  • 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

It's an all-American supercar with 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine. Buyers can choose to #GiveAShift with a...

  • 2019 Maserati Levante GTS
    First drive review: 2019 Maserati Levante GTS completes a beast

    Italian cars are known for four things: beauty, speed, noise, and a special feel. Fail on any of these and the car feels authentic like ravioli from a can. Maserati’s Levante is the Italian automaker’s first crossover SUV. It’s beautiful, but base models weren’t fast...

  • 2019 Ram 2500 with Mopar accessories

    Aspiring owners of the redesigned 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty already have a bevy of customization options to choose from thanks to the folks at Mopar.

Some of the items shown are still concepts but the majority will be available when the truck goes on sale later this year. And they don't fit just one purpose. Mopar announced that it will have items whether the truck is for work or off-roading or to cruise around...

  • 2019 Ram 1500 Multifunction Tailgate, 2019 Chicago Auto Show

    The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 is already one of the most versatile trucks on the market, but its functionality has been dialed up a notch thanks to the addition of the new Multifunction Tailgate. The split tailgate can be opened at multiple angles, offering users greater cargo-access flexibility than your typical truck. Even the new MultiPro tailgate GMC introduced on its redesigned 2019 Sierra 1500 doesn't have a split design. With Ram's Multifunction Tailgate, there's the standard drop-down function, but the tailgate's split, which is off-center, means it can also be opened from either the...

  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550
    8 things you need to know about the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550 and AMG G63

    The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen doesn’t look much different than the boxy SUVs from each of the 40 years preceding it. Typically, if a vehicle is indistinguishable from its predecessors, that’s a bad thing. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is anything but typical. I went to San Diego...

  • 2019 Audi Q8, Park City to Telluride
    2019 Audi Q8 review update: Luxury crossover lode runner

    Lights flicker underneath champagne-dry powder that dusts the old marquee at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah. The Egyptian’s been here since the 1920s. Back then, Park City was a glorified, dusty camp attached to a silver lode; a long ride but a world apart from Salt Lake City, which...

  • 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Drivers Series leaked
    2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Drivers Series special edition hiding in plain sight

  • 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition
    2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition is sold out

    Lincoln's 2019 Continental Coach Door Edition sees the brand revive the rear-opening doors found on some of its most iconic models of the 1960s. While the front doors open in normal fashion, the rear pair swing back 90 degrees, much like on a Rolls-Royce. No doubt the feature will grab...
