2017 Dodge Charger is badass with mucho swagger

The Dodge Charger has pretty much always been an attention-grabber. For as long as I can remember, the Dodge family member has had an in-your-face sporty automotive design, ballsy balance of power and weight, and a kind of road-demon-in-street clothing…

The 2018 Chevy Equinox is a big-time swallower

Compact vehicles are typically made for folks who will never have reason to shop at any store that caters to the vertically or horizontally challenged set. The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a big-time swallower; it has all of the…

The 2017 Cadillac CT6 is a tweener that wants to get noticed

The Cadillac brand is not necessarily known for cranking out sexy rides. In the past, their vehicles primarily caught the eye of the platinum, AARP card-carrying set. Over last few years, however, the 115-year-old underdog’s think-tankers hit the drawing board…

The 2017 Mazda6 will make you look

Mazda can certainly be viewed as a survivor, a company that has stayed the course despite some pretty dismal automotive sales over recent years. In the midsized car game, such top-sellers as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Ford Fusion,…

Can the 2017 Infiniti Q50 rub fenders with the best of them?

The Infiniti brand has always been a gamer, trying its damnedest to go wheel-to-wheel with the Deutschland crew (Audi, BMW, Mercedes) and Japanese premium-packers (Lexus, Acura). The brand also mixes it up with such American lux automakers as Lincoln and…

Does the 2017 Dodge Durango have ‘It’ factor?

Once upon a time, the Dodge Durango was a pretty ho-hum SUV: nondescript, just a vehicular impersonation of a blank canvas. “Ouch,” you say? Well, I’m on a roll, so I’ll just add that the Durango was a lump of…

The 2017 Honda Pilot is not your average people-hauler

Big-boy people-haulers are experiencing a renaissance of sorts, as more and more large families or gear-haulers realize the unparalleled practicality and utility these vehicles apparently have to offer.
