    OK, hoons, yesterday I celebrated Wagon Wednesday (on a Tuesday) with my “State of the Wagon Address“. While Jeff thought maybe I was making fun of him for his unfinished Mercedes wagon project, I was really lamenting the state of new wagons in North America currently. I know, I know, no on buys them, yadda,…

    The Honda Motocompacto is a modern take on a cult classic. It’s the reimagined version of the Motocompo scooter from the early 80s. That was called a trunk bike and it was designed to fit in the rear of the subcompact Honda City. Today, the Motocompacto is here and it weighs half as much, as…

    My fellow North Americans, the station wagon as we know it continues to be replaced by high riding versions of itself. As a serial car buyer I’m always car shopping for the next thing. Lately I’ve considered replacing my Wrangler Unlimited with something a little more comfortable, a little quicker (300 horsepower or more), has…

    There has been a lot written about Acura’s new Integra. Angry people on the internet claim that the Civic based Integra isn’t what it should have been. However, that’s what the Integra always was, and we here at Hooniverse like it. We’ve driven the regular Integra and Jeff noted that the “2023 Acura Integra is…

    Let me get two things out of the way right up front; no one is paying me to write this post, and yes I should maybe slow down behind the wheel. That first bit? I’m referring to the fact that this will sound like an ad but it’s in fact just me being supremely impressed…

    As the ATV and UTV world continues to evolve, the mid-level machine remains an integral part of the industry. For many buyers these vehicles bridge the gap between entry-level and big-bore four-wheelers, with satisfactory power and a body capable of withstanding the abuse of rough terrains, all while being reasonably priced. Can-Am has done just…

    The 2023 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro is a pretty sweet machine in that it’s nicely built for off-road adventure, but can pack plenty of people and things on the inside. It looks the business and even offers up decent noise, just ignore that it’s mostly piped in via the speakers. But it’s also colossally expensive……

    One major aspect of the quest to make a properly capable off-road rig out of my 2018 Lexus GX460 has been improving and increasing protection from the things that try to damage it on the trail. With a big, Aussie-style metal bumper fitted up front, the next step was to ditch the stock running boards…

    The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392 is the perfect example of something that makes no sense whatsoever somehow making all the sense in the world. As if Hellcat-powered Durangos weren’t proof enough, Stellantis putting the biggest naturally-aspirated engine in its toolbox into its vehicle worst-suited to controlling the big ‘ol V8 6.4L Hemi beast…

    Up until 2021, if you wanted a modern four-seat convertible vehicle with four-wheel-drive it meant buying a Jeep Wrangler, simple as that. Seeing as Jeep was cashing in on this by selling more of its iconic four-by-four effectively every subsequent year, Ford decided it was time to crash the party and revive the Wrangler’s main…

    “The more things change, the more they stay the same” – Some proverb who might have forecasted the trajectory of the still-current, outgoing Dodge Challenger. Aside from tinkering with cosmetics, changing transmissions, adding a boatload of power, and ramping up the special trims offered, the car has stayed true to its roots as a big,…

    Over the course of my weekend at Porsche Rennsport Reunion 7, I heard a common refrain that no other brand in the world could bring people together in the same way. No other automotive manufacturer has the fanbase, the motorsport history, or the 75-year common thread of enthusiasm to carry a festival like this one.…

    Toyota tried to outdo the American trucks at their own game when the brand debuted the second generation of the Tundra for the 2007 model year. Burly styling and a beefy optional 5.7L V8 paired with Toyota’s famous reliability and durability, which was prioritized over cutting-edge tech over the vehicle’s run through 2021, meant it…
