2022 Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax l Review

2022 Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax

The Toyota Tundra is a relative newcomer to the truck world, only having been around since the year 2000.

An entire twenty two years later and we’re just now getting the third generation of Toyota’s full-size truck. That first generation […]

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk l Review

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

It’s hard to fathom, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee (JGC) has been in production for…wait for it…thirty years. There it is, I said it. The ZJ generation was Jeep’s first attempt at a luxury SUV. With six and eight cylinder power the Grand Cherokee set up much of the basis of what we know the […]

2022 Kia Niro EV EX Premium l Review

2022 Kia Niro EV EX Premium

Electric vehicles are here to stay. Probably. Assuming we can build infrastructure to charge them fairly quickly. Which we might not. Still, the sheer number on the road already proves that this isn’t an automotive fad. In fact, if you follow me on the social medias, you’ll know that I just bought one! I couldn’t […]

I gave my seven year old a DSLR and had him cover the DC Auto Show (Gallery)

I’ve been to my local auto show in D.C. for quite a few years. It was likely my first “press event” in which I showed up, went to the media office and talked my way into a media ticket. This year I skipped the Media Day because of a schedule conflict, and almost didn’t go […]

Toyota GR GT3 Concept – Here’s a bit more (All…Updated)

(Update: I’m an idiot. I noted that the Tokyo Auto Salon was being held January 14 to January 16, 2022. When I wrote that, it was 14 January in Japan. So, here’s the whole thing…) (Now back to my OG post) Toyota’s Gazoo Racing recently previewed a pretty impressive looking thing, the GR GT3 Concept. […]

2022 Genesis G70 RWD 3.3T Sport Prestige l Review

2022 Genesis G70 RWD 3.3T Sport Prestige

I like to think of these reviews as an ongoing story. Each week a different vehicle rocks up to my house and delivers a unique experience. Well, except late December when I ended up with (a thankfully mild case of) COVID. Across each loan I feel like I can start to make some meaningful comparisons, […]

How I got ripped off during my very first Turo rental


If you follow my column here at Hooniverse, you’ll know that I’m currently without a primary car. The used market was so crazy that I sold my BMW M4 back in October. Since then I’ve been getting by on press loaners and our family SUV. Well, recently we had a confluence of events where the […]
