The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Bends The World To Its Will The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Bends The World To Its Will

Only a handful of Americans will buy a 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser. But ask anyone who knows this vehicle and they’ll talk about it with the kind of mystical reverence usually reserved for reciting folklore. So I threw this $87,000 legend off its laurels and into a sand storm to see how much heat it could really take.

So You Want To Buy A 2018 Chrysler 300 So You Want To Buy A 2018 Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 has basically been with us since 2005, and it last got an update in 2011. That makes it the car equivalent of half the lineup of the San Antonio Spurs. But people still seem to want them! People like my friend Rich, who I’m writing this review for. Look Rich, and other Richs of the world, here’s what…

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon?

Here in America, we find ourselves with a sudden wealth of wagons as a nice byproduct of the crossover boom. Well, maybe not a wealth, but there’s more available now than in many years past. Kristen is driving the Buick Regal TourX and just tested a Volvo V90 Cross Country; BMW, Volkswagen, Mini, Audi and Jaguar (!!!)…

The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon Is A Gorgeous Grand Tourer But I'm Not Sure Who It's For The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon Is A Gorgeous Grand Tourer But I'm Not Sure Who It's For

Volkswagen really needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. Or gets out of a financial and regulatory prison sentence, I guess. And the new 2018 Volkswagen Arteon sedan has somehow emerged as the poster boy for this problem.

I Drove The 1,000 HP Hellcat-Powered 'Jalop Gold' AMC Javelin; It Was Bonkers I Drove The 1,000 HP Hellcat-Powered 'Jalop Gold' AMC Javelin; It Was Bonkers

In just a quick glance, you can tell that this AMC Javelin isn’t even remotely messing around. A menacing face, a huge hood, and massive fenders wrapped over three-piece HRE wheels. A thousand horses from a 6.2-liter supercharged Dodge Hellcat engine. An opulent gold paint job.

The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 Is How You Make 'The Best Car In The World' Better The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 Is How You Make 'The Best Car In The World' Better

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is best known as “the best car in the world.” The Mercedes-Maybach is built off of the regular S-Class, and that presents it with the challenge of making the best car, somehow, impossibly, better. This has made the car quietly one of the most entertaining vehicles ever produced.

The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS Is A Better BRZ—And That's A Problem The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS Is A Better BRZ—And That's A Problem

Let’s play a game of call and response. I say “Ford Mustang”, you say “Cars and Coffee mishaps.” I say “Tesla Model 3,” you say “panel gaps.” But if I say “Subaru BRZ,” you’re most likely going to first give a knowing nod of appreciation but then lament “needs more power.”

The 2018 Kia Niro Is A Good Little Wagon The 2018 Kia Niro Is A Good Little Wagon

You know how everybody in the world is an idiot except us? Sure you do. One of the ways everyone’s an idiot is the sad way the auto industry slavishly follows foolish marketing trends, like the current domination of crossovers and SUVs. Take the Kia Niro, for example. Kia keeps calling it a “crossover” which, to my…

Here’s Why Subaru Thinks It Can Charge You $50,000 For The WRX STI Type RA Here’s Why Subaru Thinks It Can Charge You $50,000 For The WRX STI Type RA

“Not a chance.” That’s how most of you will react when reading the headlines talking about the $50,000 Subaru WRX STI Type RA. Before slamming your fingers onto your rage-spit-covered keyboard and typing out your 2,500-word magnum opus of hatred, allow me a few words to explain how this is basically Subaru’s own…

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace Is Pretty But It’s No Performance Car The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace Is Pretty But It’s No Performance Car

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is a noble effort in the quest to make the small crossover SUV/sports car mashup aesthetic work. It’s decent to drive, too. But don’t get too carried away convincing yourself that this is a family-friendly F-Type; the E-Pace’s value proposition is more about style than substance.

The 2018 Kia Stinger GT Is The Real Deal The 2018 Kia Stinger GT Is The Real Deal

In car reviews, recounting how much “better” the Korean automakers are than they were in decades past has become painfully cliché. It doesn’t need to be said that Hyundai and Kia make world-class cars these days and have for some time, except in one area: performance. This is what the 2018 Kia Stinger GT aims to…

A Manual Transmission 2018 Hyundai Accent Is A Good Amount Of Fun For Only $16,000 A Manual Transmission 2018 Hyundai Accent Is A Good Amount Of Fun For Only $16,000

I just spent a week driving a stripper-model 2018 Hyundai Accent, and I must say: I was pleasantly surprised. It honestly might be among the most fun new cars you can buy for just about $16,000.

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 Is A High-Tech Baby Stroller With A Trick Variable Compression Engine The 2019 Infiniti QX50 Is A High-Tech Baby Stroller With A Trick Variable Compression Engine

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is as plush as it is pretty. And for better or worse, you’ll never notice that it has an engine unlike anything else on the road right now. In fact, in this crossover, you’ll barely realize you’re driving at all.

The 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Will Make You Demand The Wagon Life The 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Will Make You Demand The Wagon Life

This wasn’t meant to be a glamorous trip. There would be no ice driving nor desert off-roading. I was about to embark on a 300-mile trip to the frigid Northland and I needed a nice pack mule to haul all my junk up there with. And the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country proved to be a damn fine vehicle to do it with.

The New Acura NSX Is Also A High-Tech Snownut Machine The New Acura NSX Is Also A High-Tech Snownut Machine

I may be a professional race car driver, but my writing gig for Jalopnik doesn’t suck either. (Just don’t tell Patrick that or he’ll take away the peanuts he’s currently paying me.) Case in point: a snowy, hoon-filled test of the new Acura NSX. Is it good to blast a $150,000 hybrid supercar around an empty winter…

Don't Be Scared Of The Ducati Monster Don't Be Scared Of The Ducati Monster

Saddling up on a machine called “Monster” from a company known for building ferociously fast motorcycles might seem intimidating, but the 2018 Ducati Monster 821 is really pretty placid. It might not be a track day choice, but the usability of its power make it a damn fine daily rider.

The 2018 Honda Accord Makes Normal Feel So Good The 2018 Honda Accord Makes Normal Feel So Good

Everyone has a Honda Accord story. Maybe it was your mom’s car. Maybe you had one in college, or used to join your friend on his delivery food runs. Maybe yours had Type-R stickers you’d prefer not to talk about today. With 13 million Accords sold since 1976, you may even be driving one right now. And if you’re not,…

The Key To A Good Race Isn't A Car At All The Key To A Good Race Isn't A Car At All

The idea behind the Winnebago Minnie Winnie RV is simple: it’s a toilet on wheels. Also a living room, bedroom(s), command center, party pad... OK, so it’s a whole house you can park wherever. It also makes car racing way more fun and easy. And no, that doesn’t involve setting lap times in the housebus.

I Drove A $169,000 Ford Mustang And My Favorite Part Was Everything I Drove A $169,000 Ford Mustang And My Favorite Part Was Everything

I was blasé about driving the Classic Recreations Ford Mustang GT500 because of its name. “Recreation” sounds like “copy”, and why bother with a knockoff when you’re spending six figures on a car? But between the look, sound, and good lord that shifter, this is easily one of the most exciting cars I’ve ever driven.

The 2018 Lincoln Continental Is The Car Lincoln Should've Made 20 Years Ago The 2018 Lincoln Continental Is The Car Lincoln Should've Made 20 Years Ago

Lincoln made a car called the “Continental” 20 years ago. You don’t remember it. No one remembers it. That’s because it was bad. But now there’s a new Continental, and the 2018 Lincoln Continental is the Lincoln should’ve made a long time ago.
