2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Is Bad To The Core

Back in 1955, the Chrysler C-300 cut a swath with its “Forward Look” styling and powerful HEMI V8 engine. It was essentially a NASCAR racer homologated for purpose with a limited run of street cars – a true muscle car, nearly a decade before the Pontiac GTO flashed its tail. Through decades, the Chrysler 300 has proven mighty muscular.

BMW 335i GT

BMW 335i GT xDrive Improves The Quintessential Sport Sedan

BMW’s 3-Series is the quintessential sport sedan, setting a tough standard that others struggle to attain. But, it is not perfect. While it’s a finely-engineered toy from behind the wheel, rear seat passengers are better left behind. And, luggage space? There’s usually enough, but sometimes not enough. A low ride height enhances handling, but makes stooping in less than elegant. There’s room for improvement.

2014 Toyota Corolla S

2014 Toyota Corolla Gets Its “S” Together

I was not a fan of the last-generation Toyota Corolla. It was an underdeveloped, over-hyped piece of boredom that relied more on the reputation of Toyota than its own virtues. The exterior was watered-down vanilla and its interior was about as blah. But, it went beyond aesthetics. The tall and narrow body allowed crosswinds to coax it into a gentle oscillation on the Interstate that its vague electrically-assisted power steering could not easily correct. Toyota should have done better.

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

Mitsubishi Sees A Mirage

Having left the Galant, Montero, and Eclipse behind, Mitsubishi is re-focusing itself towards plug-ins and compacts. It’s a dubious strategy given the insane competition from cars like the Toyota Yaris, Chevy Spark, Nissan Versa, and Ford Fiesta…not to mention the Toyota Prius and Chevy Volt. At least Mitsubishi’s newest sub-compact comes with a popular name and outstanding fuel economy.

2014 Cadillac ELR: A High (Voltage) Roller

It’s wasn’t by some random act that Cadillac invited us to drive the new ELR coupe in Palm Springs, California- the desert playground renowned for high style and mid-century design was chosen deliberately to serve as a backdrop for the new line of Cadillacs, and the ELR in particular.

2014 Toyota Tundra

2014 Toyota Tundra Growls In A Good Way

You don’t have to be a Texan, hard hat wearer, or even a cow poop-scooper named Farmer John, to drive around in a pickup truck! No longer viewed as run-of-the-mill workhorses not worth a second glance, today’s current crop of trucks have been bumped up status-wise and are now luxe head-turners. The 2014 Toyota Tundra will certainly make you look, and when you get behind the wheel and hear its growl, you’ll definitely want to experience the ride.

We Let the Dog Decide: The 2014 Infiniti Q60 Convertible Is The Choice For Both Driver & Canine

Roxy, Gaywheels own exclusive canine auto journalist, may be just a dog to some but she knows what she wants and more often than not that is the utmost in luxury. The 2014 Infiniti Q60 folding hardtop convertible provided her with just that and more as this is one of the few luxury convertibles that she is even allowed to ride in as it has a leather lined back seat not all that suitable for anything more than small children but perfect for a 44 pound boxer rescued from Boxer Rescue Los Angeles.

Ford Continues Support Of Homophobic St. Patrick’s Day Parade, While Guinness, Heineken Pull Out

It’s St. Patrick’s Day — a day of shamrocks, green beer, and, depending on where you live, a heaping helping of homophobia.

We’re following two LGBT-related news items today — one of them odd, the other, just awesome. Just for kicks, let’s start with the odd.

2014 Toyota Tundra: Bred By Uncle Sam

Toyota has endured sorted success with its full-size pickups. The T100 was nice, but underwhelming. Same was true of the first-generation, not-quite-butch-enough Tundra. By gen-3, Toyota had constructed a new plant in Princeton, IN to assemble its full-girth full-size truck. It later moved to a gleaming new plant in San Antonio, TX, where the 2014 fourth-generation pickup, the first major update since 2007, is exclusively built.
