Hooniverse Asks: Will Personal Luxury Coupes make a comeback?

Watching the new Grand Tour episode, the Lochdown, last night I instantly fell in love with the Lincoln that Jeremy Clarkson was driving. That Mark V coupe looked just so, so right to me.

Ridiculous dealer mark-ups now on the 4Runner TRD Pro

The fifth generation Toyota 4Runner has been around since the 2010 model year.

Just after 2:00pm on Friday before the Memorial Day weekend, Ford sent the above email to those with new Ford Broncos on order. It says nothing of value, really. It says they’re having issues. It is written in a rather casual manner, as if it was a known fact to those who have ordered. And […]

Not sure if Genius or Idiot: Pineapple for Bronco scale

Now is the time to order that brand new car exactly how you want it

The way new car sales work in the United States is rather messed up. It would seem that automakers give you sorts of models, options, and colors, but getting what you really want is often challenging. That is because it’s really the dealers who are buying the cars and placing them on their lots. Then […]
