2022 Ford Lightning l Quick Spin

2022 Ford Lightning

“Holy crap that’s quick” – Those were the first words I said upon exiting the new 2022 Ford Lightning. I was invited to take a quick spin in the new electric full-size truck over at the now-defunct (and at some point to be imploded) RFK Stadium parking lot. Ford had set up a small course […]

2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium l Review

2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0

If I never read another “Nice BMW” comment regarding the fifth generation Supra, I’ll end my time on this earth in peace. Why internet commentators believe that they have some insider knowledge that no one else has is beyond me. We know who makes it. However, that tension framed my most recent encounter with the […]

2022 Genesis G80 AWD 3.5T Sport Prestige l Review

2022 Genesis G80 AWD 3.5T Sport Prestige

What is luxury? Is it a certain experience, a pre-established or agreed-upon level of quality or performance? Or is it simply aligned to a limited number of badges or brands? I’ve always had the impression that it’s sort of like pornography, you know it when you see it. Or actively search for it, whatever, that’s […]

Ioniq 5 vs. Mach-E vs. bZ4X – Quick Comparo

I have had the recent privilege of sampling quite a few new EVs coming onto the market and figured I am in the position to provide some useful consumer advice (for once). Within the span of a week, I got to spend time with the new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5, and the not-even-released 2023 Toyota […]

2022 Honda Civic Si HPT l Review

2022 Honda Civic Si

I’ve had an interesting relationship with the Honda Civic Si. When I got out of college I was driving a new 1999 Civic EX. It was Clover Green Pearl with the larger factory spoiler, upgraded 15-inch wheels, and a manual transmission. It was a practical change from the 1996 Camaro I was driving before heading […]

First Drive: 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V

2023 cadillac escalade-v parked in the desert

The 2023 Cadillac is a full-size luxury SUV packing 682 horsepower from its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. It can rip from 0-60 mph in under 4.4 seconds. And it’s also serene, quiet, and comfortable on the inside… until you mash the throttle or blast the 36-speaker AKG sound system. What a silly thing in this […]

2022 Dodge Durango R/T l Review

2022 Dodge Durango R/T

On the heels of saying that the Kia Telluride is the benchmark for midsize three-row SUVs, why would you ever consider anything else? Well, if you are true hoon you might just be soothed by the smooth growl of a big V8 engine. Not surprisingly, Dodge has you covered with several V8-powered SUVs. They loaned […]

2022 Kia Telluride SX V6 AWD l Review

Kia Telluride SX V6 AWD

I’m gonna say this up front, the Kia Telluride may just be the new benchmark midsize crossover. My colleague Eric covered it on Hooniverse well back when it was a brand new model in 2020, noting that it’s “as good as everyone says“. If you’re already sold on that notion, thanks for clicking and you […]

2022 Toyota GR86 Premium l Review

2022 Toyota GR86 Premium

I’ll say this up front, I was never a massive fan of the original FR-S/BRZ/86. Conceptually, sure I was all in. A light two door RWD coupe, yes please. However, in practice I just never came to love any of them, and it came down to one reason. Power. Sure, you can have massive fun […]

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq5 is Stylish, Quirky, Electrified Fun

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq5 is an excellent EV that looks great, is nice inside, and charges quickly. Hyundai has made sure it stands out with its retro-fun pixelated future styling. Inside, the cabin is comfortable and well equipped. And even better is that this AWD version has 320 horsepower and can handle 350kW charging speeds. […]
