Review: 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS450 – Time to Evolve or Exit

mercede-benz csl450

Have you thought about the Mercedes-Benz CLS450 in a while? It’s okay if you haven’t. I’m curious if Mercedes itself is thinking about it. The vehicle as it sits today is totally fine. But when the rest of your lineup exists in or is moving towards a zone of stellar awesome, fine doesn’t cut it. […]

2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 – XL Excess

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is a less useful GLS, but it is damn nice on the inside and super smooth out on the road. I logged a ton of miles in this one, and here’s what I found. Disclaimer: Mercedes tossed us the keys to this GLS600 and included a tank of fuel.

2022 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo First Drive

This is an all-electric performance sports wagon and it’s awesome; meet the 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo! If I had to find fault with the 590 horsepower wonder wagon, it’s that I can’t afford to put one in my garage. Otherwise, I’m absolutely in love with this thing. [Disclaimer: Porsche put me up in […]

2022 Honda Civic Si arrives and I’m here to tell you it’s really good!

2022 honda civic si

Remember a few years back when I had a 2000 Honda Civic Si? I really enjoyed that car. It remains one of my favorite front-driver cars out there. There have been a few iterations of the Civic Si since then and in fact, Honda has just revealed the latest version. It’s based on the new […]

2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X

The 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X is one damn-fine truck! Nissan has taken its aged machine and instantly made it competitive in the segment. How? By refreshing the outside, massively improving the inside, pairing a 9-speed gearbox with a 310-horsepower V6, and prepping it for fun. This is one great mid-size truck, especially when it’s wearing […]

2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Review

The 2021 Ford Bronco is one of the most anticipated vehicles of the year, and the good news is that it’s pretty much everything you hoped it would be! It’s excellent off-road, good on-road, has great engine choices, and it looks fantastic as well. We snagged a 2021 Bronco Badlands two-door for a week and […]

The 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness loves being off the beaten path

Subaru is on to something with its Wilderness lineup. This would be the more off-road focused trim lines added to existing models. It started with the Outback, and now it’s arrived on the Forester. And it’s even better than the first time we tried it. Probably because we took this one deeper into the woods. […]

Lamborghini Urus: Excellent Excess in XL Size

lamborghini urus

The 2021 Lamborghini Urus is ridiculous… but that’s what it should be. An oversized go-anywhere Lamborghini with room for friends and family. And its very existence means Lamborghini can continue building more insane-o-mobiles while the Urus prints money for the brand. [Disclaimer: Lamborghini tossed us the keys to the Urus and included a full tank […]

2022 Toyota Tundra: A greatly improved pickup

Last week, I was in San Antonio to drive the 2022 Toyota Tundra. I shot a video for Autotrader, which you can watch below. But I wanted to pop it over here to add in some written talking points for those of you not eager to sit through a nearly 15-minute long video. The gist […]

The 2022 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X is an instant competitor in the mid-size truck segment

I’m not a Toyota Tacoma fan. Let’s get that out of the way from the jump. I appreciate the strong sales figures and customer loyalty. The truck has amazing ability in both TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trims. But it’s also the most uncomfortable production vehicle on sale today, and it needs to evolve. Especially […]
