While we rarely skip an opportunity to praise the Volkswagen Golf, our infatuation has never fixated on the hatchback’s price. That’s because while its cost is reasonable, its core competencies—a solid structure, an impeccably finished interior, and comfortable and capable suspension—would be welcome at any price. And value is just one of the main criteria we use to name cars to our 10Best Cars list, the others being satisfying driving dynamics and unparalleled execution of purpose. Because the Golf excels at all three, it has...Continue reading »

A home is usually one of the most important and biggest investments that we will make in our lifetime.

But for some, this is not what they think of when they think of ‘home’. Some people choose to have a home on wheels. Van retailer, Van Monster has considered the ways and means of how you can create your perfect home on wheels. Read on to find out more… ...

For the first time in 70 years, Ford is making a diesel version of its light duty F-Series truck. The automaker announced on Sunday that the redesigned 2018 F-150 will be available with a new Power Stroke 3.0-liter V6, a long-rumored and much-anticipated development. The only other light duty full-size pickup offered with a diesel option today is the Ram 1500, which also features a 3.0-liter V6 and boasts the highest fuel economy among half-ton pickups. Power and fuel economy ratings for the diesel F-150 have not yet been revealed, but...Continue reading »

Faraday Future has unveiled what it claims is the fastest production electric car in the world. The tech start-up company, backed by Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting, says its new FF91 model can accelerate from zero to 60mph in 2.39 seconds – quicker than the McLaren P1 or the Lamborghini Aventador. That speed would also top the acceleration of Tesla’s Model S – currently the world’s fastest production electric car. Unveiling the FF91 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Faraday Future executive vice...Continue reading »

There’s nothing like buying a new car. The luxury, comfort, and style all produce a kind of euphoria unrivalled by any other driving experience. Your new car is an investment, a statement, a tool, and a toy all rolled into one. It can be useful, classy, sexy and reliable all at the same time. As such, you want to make sure that you protect your new vehicle in case of an accident. Sure, you’re probably going to be super careful with it, but that doesn’t mean you can afford to take chances. Even if you’re on high alert, it’s possible...Continue reading »

“Created by millennials for millennials.” That’s how Chrysler describes its new Portal Concept, a fully electric minivan that’s set to debut later today at CES in Las Vegas. Reading between the lines, apparently that means millennials want a one-box van with lots of glass and LED lighting elements… and that FCA is talking to the same millennials as Mercedes did back in 2015. From the few early images of the vehicle released ahead of its official debut, Chrysler’s electric van looks like it could have...Continue reading »

Subaru announced its lineup for the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon, and at the tippy top is yet another STI-badged BRZ concept car. But unlike the Performance Concept from the 2015 New York Auto Show, the new BRZ STI Sport Concept isn’t so extreme. While it’s hard to predict what this car means based on the limited information Subaru has released, we can get an idea of where the company is going by looking at its last STI Sport production model – the not-for-US Levorg. Essentially, the BRZ STI Sport Concept sounds like a lukewarm...Continue reading »

In 1989 Ford crammed a 7,000-rpm Yamaha V6 into the Taurus and made the SHO, one the greatest sleeper sports cars ever to come out of Detroit. Fast-forward to today and the modern Taurus SHO is a big luxo-cruiser, not Dearborn’s answer to European sport sedans. But, to paraphrase Yoda, there is another. The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport is stylish, has 325 horsepower and all-wheel drive, and uses an engine from a pickup truck. God bless America. Yes, the 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 was first used in the F-150. This powerful...Continue reading »

The Bugatti Veyron quite famously came complete with 10 heat exchangers. That 1,001-horsepower projection of Ferdinand Pich’s ego made so much heat it needed 10 intercoolers to keep it from boiling. The 650-horsepower 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has 11. Insert Spinal Tap joke here. Such is the extreme nature of the latest, probably greatest, and without question most powerful Camaro the Bow Tie brand has ever sold to the public. Unlike the obvious competition (Chevy’s looking at you, Hellcat), the ZL1 isn’t simply extreme...Continue reading »

Mid-engine supercars seem to get churned out by the baker’s dozen in Europe, but until Chevrolet gets around to producing a mid-engine Corvette, America has just one: the Ford GT. The first production-spec 2017 Ford GT goes off the factory line within the next four weeks, and as the Blue Oval makes the final tweaks to its reborn supercar, Ford invited us out to Las Vegas Motor Speedway to snag shotgun and go for a ride. Parked in a sea of black asphalt with B-1 bombers and other military hardware roaring out of Nellis Air Force...Continue reading »
