Ranger ford Tremor

Hooniverse Asks: Is “Tremor” a good name for a vehicle?

Last week I reviewed the F-250 Tremor and said it was good. Today, Ford announced the Ranger Tremor. Don't for a second think that this is a coincidence. But in all this I have a question that's been on my mind for a while - is "Tremor" a good name ...

You can buy this awesome mashup of the two best 2000s BMWs

In the year 2000, BMW was just beginning to sell the famed E39 M5. This was -- and still is -- a truly excellent car, with handsome styling, a glorious powertrain, and bank-vault-like build quality. At least on the surface. Lately, demand for these has skyrocketed, as no modern car ...

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Review (Pt.1): Tropical Storm Isaias and the perfect beach trip vehicle

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is so much more to me than just a vehicle. You see, Jeep has a special place in my heart. The brand has always been my favorite, and for good reason: Most of my early childhood memories revolve around adventures, trips, and, yes, mishaps, ...

Hooniverse Asks: Can North America afford a cheaper Land Cruiser?

Look around, everyone these days wants a mighty 4x4 off-roader, even if they have no no-roads on to drive on. It’s a craze and it’s crazy. Wranglers and Gladiators, full loaded models too, are selling like fresh bagels. Ford took over 200,000 reservations for the Bronco within days of introduction ...

2020 Chevrolet Corvette: Is the C8 great? That’s up for debate…

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is, on paper, an amazing sports car. It's very nearly a supercar in fact, based on some of its performance metrics. And with a starting price below $60,000, it's also a relatively amazing deal. It should be something that blows me away and for some reason, ...

Hooniverse Asks: Will the Land Rover Defender succeed here?

I've finally got some seat time in the new Land Rover Defender. This is a vehicle that I've been incredibly eager to drive. My window with it has been short, but I've enjoyed my time with it regardless. It's wonderfully styled. The Defender drives well. And the interior is well ...

Last Call: The Aston Martin Victor is retro influence done right

If you haven't already heard, the new Aston Martin Victor is a one-off beauty that draws major influence from the 80s V8 Vantage. It's going to be a one of one so the odds of you seeing one in person are essentially zero. Think One-77 rarety but even more. Ironically, ...

Ford Godzilla 7.3-L V8 Makes Almost 800 Horsepower N/A

There have been more than a few people asking why all the hype around the new Ford Godzilla 7.3-L V8. It has always been about two things. Diesel like toughness and durability with gas engine running and maintenance costs. Also as a platform to make big power. How big? How ...

2020 Ford F-250 4×4 with Tremor Off-Road Package

This 2020 Ford F-250 Tremor was intimidating to drive at first. This three-quarter-ton truck is one of largest vehicles I have driven. At 79-inches high, this truck is five inches taller than me. The top of its bed rail is at my shoulder height. It’s got 250-inches in length and ...

Craigslist: “Custom, Hand-Built Sports Car”

Having recently sold my Project Integra on Bring-a-Trailer (more on that later), I started casually looking around for its pointless replacement. I started with Craigslist, of course, and it again proved itself to be a complete win/fail. Right on the first page on my local listings was the pictured homemade ...

Hooniversal Opinion: Jeep Grand Wagoneer “Concept”

Jeep Grand Wagoneer. A name rooted in the SUV and four-wheel-drive history books up there with the likes of Bronco, Suburban, and, well, the other Jeep nameplates. It’s been a while since the Grand Wagoneer nameplate has made an appearance on dealer lots. Twenty-seven years, to be exact. But with ...

Last Call: I’d still take an Audi RS6 over the new M3 Touring any day

Don't get me wrong, I love a sporty wagon as much as the next guy but for me, the new M3 just doesn't do it. For starters, it has the Bugs Bunny bucktooth grille that I really can't ignore. On top of that, BMW interiors feel much more cluttered to ...

2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid: Podium Contender?

Backstory Right up until the Kia Telluride came out, if someone asked me what was my go-to three-row crossover choice, I would have said the Highlander in XLE trim.  Several years ago I had the XLE and Limited trims nearly back to back to review, and put 700+ miles on ...
