The 2017 Lexus LX 570 is a mixed bag

Does the 2017 Lincoln Continental have star quality?

Believe it or not, nearly 80 years ago, the Lincoln Continental hit the scene. It was always a luxe ride right from the start, a real head-turner. As a matter of fact, back in 1940, architect extraordinaire Frank Lloyd Wright…

2017 Dodge Charger is badass with mucho swagger

The 2018 Chevy Equinox is a big-time swallower

The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is a good thing

2017 Kia Cadenza: Can it really become an obsession?

Obsessions, we all have them, like my penchant for bad TV. I’ll admit, I’m a fiend for those reality shows where producers pull no stops to go to new depths in depravity. Throwing Martha Stewart-level dinner parties is another obsession;…

The 2017 Volvo XC60: A one-size-fits-all crossover?

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…
