Cars

On this adventure I was offered to test drive a 2015 Chrysler 200s. A friend said I would enjoy it. I paired that opportunity with a trip to Skydive the Ranch in Gardiner, New York for tandem jumping.

For years, Subaru products have been largely known as utilitarian, all-wheel-drive vehicles relegated to the snowy and wet areas of the country. While the AWD capability is still a big part of their products, the 2015 Subaru Legacy aims to change the rest of the story.

The 2014 Hyundai Equus is aimed at competing in the luxury sedan market where its competitors are more established and have a loyal following. This big, lavishly equipped car targets premium sedans costing tens of thousands more.

It’s wonderful, and sad, to see the Honda Fit EV be removed from the product line-up next year. We had a blast driving the Fit EV for a week last summer. The quirky, small EV — almost 20 inches longer than a Fiat 500e — was the perfect car for getting about both as an inner-city runner and distance partner when...

If the idea of a mini SUV seems strange, then a high performance mini SUV is just downright weird. This hasn’t stopped Nissan from taking its little Juke and giving it the NISMO treatment, and for this year, there is an even more potent Juke in the form of the NISMO RS.

After being introduced to the Fiesta in early 2014, we have been big fans. Tiny but feisty, the Fiesta has an overall goodness that's disproportionate to its size, with a complimentary talent set that includes delightful styling, energetic handling and a high level of refinement inside.

The redesigned 2015 Chevy Tahoe LTZ has a sharp new look, a great interior and a new third-row seat option. With all these new changes, will it still be a large SUV fan favorite? You bet.

In the past, driving a small car meant driving something bland, uncomfortable, and boring. Think Subaru Legacy or Nissan Versa. There will always be a few bottom-dwellers, but today there are lots of excellent choices that won’t put you to sleep at the wheel.

The Lexus SC 400 was ahead of time when it entered the stage back in 1991. It was flawless and offered owners interior prestige and comforting opulence alike. The sports coupe’s futuristic styling comingled Japanese craftsmanship into a package Lexus owners would continuously come to expect. However, if there had been...

When the all-new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk first came out, people were immediately attracted or quickly repelled thanks to its exterior styling. Jeep defended the look by pointing out, it is what’s inside that matters. After driving it around for a week, we can’t help but agree.

Dodge has thrown down the gauntlet and now claims to have the most powerful muscle car on the market with the introduction of the Hellcat engine that was inserted into the new design of the 2015 Challenger SRT. The same claim to fame can be applied to their 4-door counterpart after announcing the veritable Hellcat...

Ford has made some bold moves when it comes to offering unique powertrains with vehicles. The Fiesta SFE EcoBoost is possibly the boldest powertrain offering for a subcompact vehicle. While the base Fiesta and most of its competitors offer standard 4-cylinder powertrains, the SFE EcoBoost is a unique option that cuts...

The all-new 2014 BMW 2 Series embodies the less-is-more trend, being the smallest coupe in BMW's 2014 lineup. It may be small, but the new 2 Series coupe packs a big punch and plenty of luxury to along with it.

The 2014 Volvo XC60 is a mid-size crossover/SUV that has distinguished styling, an extensive list of safety equipment, and all-weather capability. Handsome and chiseled from almost any angle, the XC60 defies the stodgy look of its Swedish wagon brethren and carries a certain savoir faire attitude. The interior is...

The desert-racing-inspired SVT Raptor stands apart from all other pickup trucks and we go full throttle at Miller Motorsports Park doing jumps and rock climbing. At the opposite end of the Ford F-Series lineup is the F-150 FX2 Tremor which is configured for sporty driving on the street. Which do you prefer?

Likes: Off-road performance Powertrain Dislikes: Interior/exterior styling Fuel economy For the 2014 model year, Nissan hasn’t changed much of anything on the Frontier. However, you don’t fix what isn’t broken. And with the Nissan Frontier’s off-road performance, there is little to fix. Before we get to the...

For years Subaru has marketed the Outback as the go-to vehicle for the outdoor crowd. Although the previous generation, launched in 2010, made the Outback look more like a crossover SUV, for most people the Outback continues to serve as a modern day station wagon, but one with surprising off road capability. The new...

We tested the 2014 IS F sedan and came away both impressed and a little disappointed with this 4-door rocket. Overall, at $67.5k as equipped, the 417hp Lexus is priced mid-pack compared to the competition: BMW M3, Mercedes C63 AMG Sport, and Audi RS 5. The Lexus IS F isn't without its flaws and quirks, but it is a...

If you answered yes to more than three questions and your eyes are tearing up by now, then my dear family man/woman friend, you’re ready to consider a 2014 Toyota Highlander.

Hi, I’m Leah Guy and I love to drive cars! I don’t claim to be an expert, but I do have experience. My hometown is Louisville, Kentucky where my father ran an auto repair shop. Even before I had a driver’s license, I was driving all sorts of cars on and off the lift. That enthusiasm has never waned. Today, I change...

It may not rattle any cages in the auto world, but the 2015 Buick LaCrosse knows its target buyer and optimizes for it. It features everything you’d come to expect from a brand known to appeal to a more mature audience: a smooth ride, refined interior, comfortable use of interior space, and a contemporary but...
