    The era of Top Gear as we know it may be over because of Jeremy Clarkson’s termination. It’s a sad day really for the automotive world. And to reflect on some of the ways Clarkson has influenced all of us car lovers, Toyota decided to put a little video homage together paying tribute to the famed presenter, highlighting some of the ways Clarkson interacted with Toyota. Of course, over the years, Clarkson tried to destroy a Hilux, then him and May drove across the Arctic Circle in one. He loves the GT 86 but obviously, we all know his opinion on the Prius. Either way, it is a sad…
  • Pennzoil Synthetic Oil Gets Hellacious With Dodge Challenger Hellcat: Airlift Drift Video

    Oil companies have always pimped the idea of their brand giving cars additional performance but never really showing us the numbers, at least numbers that most of us understand. Though, I do agree some grades of oils do help in the performance area mostly for preventing wear, which will eventually help retain top-tier performance. A way for Pennzoil to showcase their latest synthetic motor oil’s performance at a “whole new level,” they give us a smoky action-packed video of a Pennzoil-yellow Dodge Challenger Hellcat tearing up the streets with epic drifts and a platform elevated by…

    26 Mar 2015 | 8:31 pm
    Kia’s bringing a new Optima to New York next week and already, we’ve gotten an idea as to what it should look like from the SportSpace Concept. Now however, an official stock photo apparently got leaked of the new Optima sedan, and as anticipated, it resembles the SportSpace very closely. Like that concept, the Optima gains the looks to move more upmarket in the segment, offering a more premium ambiance and profile. But like the outgoing Optima, it’s just flat-out a very good looking sedan. And we can thank Kia’s in-house designer, Peter Schreyer for that. Power is to…

It’s called the HST and it takes a base Range Rover Sport and adds more, such as more power. Using the base model’s 3.0L supercharged V6 from Jaguar, it’s been reworked to offer 380hp vs. 340, making it closer in output to the last generation model’s 5.0L V8. On top of the extra grunt, you get exterior and interior upgrades as well such as unique matte-finished 21-inch wheels, some unique exterior and interior color themes. Like the basic Range…

    Mercedes-Benz is on a plug-in hybrid binge and officially confirmed to be prepping up to 10 new plug-in hybrid models by 2017. The plan comes after automakers are continuously being burdened by fuel economy and CO2 emissions mandates and along with the new models, Mercedes-Benz will be coloquially naming their PHEVs models with an “e” suffix at the end of each model designation. For example, the new C-Class plug-in hybrid is named the C350e rather than the C350 Plug-In Hybrid. But Mercedes didn’t exactly share which models will be given the PHEV treatment, other than the…

    The Federal Trade Commission announced Thursday its results from Operation Ruse Control, a collection of investigations over deceptive dealer practices. The FTC-led campaign involved 32 law enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada, resulting in 252 enforcement actions (187 in the U.S., 65 in Ontario and British Columbia), six of them involving monetary judgements of over $2.6 million. Two of those cases involved vehicle purchase add-ons, defined by the agency as “the practice of a dealer or other third party adding to the vehicle sales, lease, or finance agreement charges…

MotorAuthority reports the updated crossover will takes its cues from the Chinese-market QX50 Long-Wheelbase like the one in the image above. This means a longer wheelbase for additional rear legroom and cabin space. The updated model will also have a slightly higher stance than the current model. Potential power for the QX50 points to the same 3.7-liter V6 found solely in the crossover now, rated at 325 horsepower. Price of admission is expected to be around $35,995, the base sticker…

It didn’t look good. It didn’t drive so nicely. It wasn’t very pleasant inside. It didn’t sell so well. But with the speed of a cat lover furiously favouriting tweets of bathing felines, GM refreshed the Malibu for the 2014 model year. Verdict: the refresh was inadequate. GM deserves…

    Ben Abrams
    24 Mar 2015 | 9:15 am
    Released in 1975, the Porsche 930 Turbo would spark the imagination and dreams of many including our friend Magnus Walker. After collecting several early Turbos and still in need of the holy grail – a first year 1975 model, he turned to the folks at Autohaus Hamilton in Australia to help him acquire 1 of 15 right hand drive examples. We met up with Magnus in the canyons, along with the current 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo, to see just how much has changed in the last 40 years for this iconic car.

Nestled away in cloudy Washington State is a small warehouse containing the collection of Peter Gleeson. It is a work of art. Mr. Gleeson was kind enough to invite the Puget Sound Region of the BMW Club of America to have a look around his garage. While many people may be aware of the Gleeson collection for its…

Here was an affordable two-plus-two with a rakish body, a modern interi­or, a tuned-for-sport chassis, and a 142-hp, turbocharged, 2.2-liter engine. After a thorough test drive, we predicted that the Turbo Z would be a hit with the performance-car crowd. We weren’t mistaken. READ MORE ››-

    Canada regulates what a new car must have in order to be legally sold in this country, and sets standards for those features as well. There are some interesting things on the list - and also some interesting things that are not required, even though you probably think they are. That photo to the left is a clue ... find out more in my photo gallery over at Autofocus.

    In a year marked mostly by significant decreases in fuel prices, motorists have been paying more at the pump in the past few weeks, although prices still remain significantly lower than they were a year ago. Diesel prices are lower this week, with the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel at $2.864, $0.053 less than a week ago, and $1.124 lower than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline increased from a low of $2.03 on Jan. 25 to $2.457 this week. That number is $0.004 more than the price last week,…

    Apple, notorious for being one of the most secretive tech companies, may be planning to build an electric vehicle that would become available by the year 2020. The veil of secrecy was pierced last week when the Wall Street Journal ran a story about Project Titan, an EV project that hundreds of Apple employees are working on. Since then, news of Apple’s recruitment of automotive industry experts has surfaced and, according to a court filing, electric-car battery maker A123 systems sued the computer company for poaching some of its top engineers with the goal of possibly creating a battery…

    Dennis Galbraith

    This subject causes more dealer confusion and misplaced marketing dollars for dealers than any other. Making matters worse, information in trade publications has vacillated over the past year. Frankly, metrics between these various services are not strictly comparable, but reasonable estimations can be made when dealers have the facts. Listings services like AutoTrader and Cars.com are only as good as the inventory, pricing, and vehicle merchandising the dealer puts into them. These systems don’t provide much of anything to cause the shopper to contact the dealer, but they do provide…

I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in.

    Every gear head knows that synthetic motor oils deliver a higher level of protection than conventional oils, but the high-tech slippery stuff has a downside when it comes to older engines. Quite simply, it’s just too slippery. A well-worn engine will burn more full synthetic oil due to leaks. That’s why the oil manufacturers initially used conventional oil or synthetic blends in high mileage products, including Quaker State Defy and Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic Blend. There’s a trend underway to replace the blends with specially formulated full synthetic oils, like Mobil 1 High Mileage…

While it didn’t don the Optima badge, Kia’s Sportspace Concept will likely inspire the styling of the next-generation model. Designed by Kia’s Frankfurt-based studio, the Sportspace is a fresh concept that still offers a strong sense of Kia’s design DNA. According to the automaker, it plays a delicate balance between a sedan and a wagon, but the shape is clearly one that’s geared more toward European tastes. The brand’s familiar tiger-nose…

    Gooding & Company, Omni Amelia Island Plantation, Amelia Island, Florida, March 13, 2015 Gooding & Company’s sixth consecutive auction at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation showed a complete disdain for superstition: it was Friday the Thirteenth. No slashers wielding machetes or aetherial ectoplasmic forms materialized in or near the Gooding tent village, although a somewhat supernatural rain deluge created an interlude that challenged rationality.

    26 Mar 2015 | 1:00 am
    There wasn’t a lot of outrage when Dodge decided that the Grand Caravan needed to go. There was a little bit of curiosity and maybe some shock from certain family-oriented car buyers, but no one threw much of a fuss about the news. The death of the Grand Caravan signals the end of an era and echoes a changing attitude about family transportation. Minivans are becoming a smaller niche market as car-based crossovers and SUVs secure their places in the driveways of America’s suburbs. Few people cried over the loss of the Grand Caravan because Chrysler would still sell its identical…

    Could the new Cadillac CT6 look like this? Cadillac has spent the better part of its existence in catch-up mode, breathing in the exhaust of Mercedes-Benz and wiping BMW’s tire smoke out of its eyes. Cadillac doesn’t set the bar for luxury cars; it strives to attain the level set by other carmakers. It wasn’t always that way, of course. There was a time when Cadillac was, well, the Cadillac of luxury cars. Those days are long gone, and the Cadillac of today plays second fiddle to BMW, Lexus, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and more. Its cars are reactions to competing cars, not…

    Scion is dead. Long live Scion. Toyota’s experiment of creating a lower priced car for young people has seen limited success. The biggest impact it’s had on the auto industry so far is starting the whole box-car craze. If not for the Scion xB, the world may have never gotten to know the Nissan Cube or the Kia Soul, for which we are eternally grateful, right? Scion sales in recent years have been anemic, and its model lineup has failed to generate anything more than mediocre reviews. With the exception of the FR-S, Scion has been near flatline.

    I used to know a family who went everywhere in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. You know the one. It’s long, tall, and looks dangerously top-heavy as it weaves through city streets. This was a family who needed the space and weren’t ashamed to drive something out of the ordinary in order to be comfortable. The traditional 5-passenger car or SUV just doesn’t cut it for large families. My family requires a 6-passenger rig, but if truth be told, sometimes I think an even larger vehicle would be nice, because there is little room for any of the stuff that comes with us. Another…

  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

    Dustin Driver
    7 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    The EcoBoost V6 is perfect for the 2017 Ford GT. It doesn’t need a V8. The Ferrari-humiliating GT40 had a V8. First a 255 c.i., then a 298 c.i., then a colossal iron behemoth 427 c.i. V8 with more torque than the planet Saturn. You know why? Because those were the best engines Ford had back then. They were powerful, reliable, and made a wonderful noise. But today, Ford’s best engine is arguably the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s a technical tour de force. It makes 380 hp and 460 lbft in the Lincoln Navigator, for chrissake. It’s an engineering marvel. The thing has direct…

In the US, 2014 was the second year in a row in which it finally looked like we were out of the recession. Confidence seemed to be high, with U.S. auto inventory stockpiles at their highest levels since 2006, and the industry seems to have successfully adapted past the unfortunate bailouts of a decade before.

The big V8 is dying in a swirl of super-compressed and intercooled air. And Ford, one of the Grandaddies of the big V8, is heralding it’s demise.

    At this point in the calender cycle, we’re probably all familiar with Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos (if you’re not, don’t feel left out – watch here). Naturally, as acts of controlled hoonage grow in popularity, younger and younger kids are going to become fans. And like monkeys, kids see, kids do. Obviously, without the aid of a thoroughly sorted open class rally car with 6-inch diameter piping creating more torque than a windmill, little kids aren’t going to be able to do smokey 720-degree burnouts. However, the real issue here is car control – you either have it or you don’t.

  • Rumormill: Bugatti developing secret Continental GT-based electric supercar

    admin
    20 Aug 2014 | 6:03 am
    With production of the Veyron coming to an end, speculation has been rampant over what Bugatti will build next. A super-sedan based on the 16C Galibier concept could still get the green light. A 1,200-horsepower “Super Veyron” has also re-entered the rumor mill of late. Even an entry-level roadster was mooted at one point. But a new project could give us a clearer (and more radical) picture than ever before. According to the rumormongers over at Auto Express, Bugatti is currently working on a massively powerful electric supercar that could eclipse the notions of what was previously…

By 2010 production had jumped  to around 62,700 units but to most of our customers, EcoBoost was unknown.

Those plans included a successor to the tiny Beat, which arrived as the S660 Concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. After a year of complete silence on the matter, a leaked brochure confirmed the S660 was on its way to the production line with a mid-mounted, three-cylinder engine rated at 63 horsepower and 77 pound-feet of torque. What the brochure didn’t say, though, was whether Honda would sell the S660 globally.Come…

    There are many things that make the Nissan GT-R a cool car, including the fact that it offers supercar-like performance for only a little over $100,000. What I like most about the GT-R, though, is that it also spawned a successful race car. To me, that’s very important, as I simply hate supercars that can’t hold their own on a race track (I’m looking at you Bugatti Veyron). The GT-R started wearing a racing suit only months after the road-going car went in production, hitting the track for the 2008 Super GT series in Japan. Starting 2009, the GT-R and GT-R Nismo raced in the…

Love the car overall, but the amount of bounce/wobble (not death wobble) I get when driving at low speeds over bumps is just way more than what I'm used to (granted I switched to the jeep from an Acura TSX). Reading other threads, it seems like this is a design issue rather than a problem with my particular jeep. I'd like to get to the root cause and then a possible fix: * Is this caused by the QuadraLift? * Is this caused by poor rear shocks? * Is this caused by sway bars that aren't stiff enough?

    Hi all, There is a used 2014 JGC Limited 4x4 Ecodiesel for sale at a local dealer. It's white, has 6500 miles, ORAII and LuxII packages, and RA4 radio (but without NAV). It also has a noticeable ding on the hood about the size of a quarter. Dealer is asking $42k, which is high, considering the last time I priced out a new 2015 with the same options (plus NAV) it was $45,357 (including destination) assuming 5% under invoice. Plus, it would mean I wouldn't have a white Jeep. ;) My gut tells me somewhere around $38-39k, but I wanted to do a sanity check here with the fine folks of Jeep Garage.

  • Air-cooled pleasure Rameder towbars for the good old Beetle

    admin
    5 Mar 2015 | 3:48 pm
    The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the classic cars you see most often. And in contrast to gull-wing door cars and so on, you can even see it on ordinary roads, although little space and a small boot render it inconvenient for ordinary uses. Rameder, one of the leading providers of transport accessories for cars, thus sells a towbar for many Beetle models dating from 1967 to 1984 at www.rameder.eu. The rigid hook with its welded ball head enables the Beetle to tow small trailers or caravans. And at a vertical coupling load of 50kg, affixing a bicycle rack is no problem either. The maximum towing…

  • 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Platinum 3.0 CRD Review

    Mike Costello
    26 Mar 2015 | 10:00 pm
    The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the top-selling large SUV in Australia so far this year — just like it was in 2014. Yes, this US-made icon regularly outguns the Toyota Prado, Ford Territory and Holden Captiva 7 for segment sales supremacy. Let’s leave the critical consensus on this quartet sidelined for now. It is generally considered to be many things, each of which in part sums up its success: rugged off-road, well equipped yet decent value, the bearer of head-turning looks and — perhaps most importantly — in possession of an iconic badge backed by brilliant marketing.

  • Basic Car Maintenance: How to change your spark plugs

    Editor
    13 Mar 2015 | 7:24 am
    Spark plugs are another excellent candidate for DIY replacement, with the metal inevitably burning out over time. Eventually the gap between the electrodes becomes too vast for the spark to actually travel, leading to things like misfires, weak acceleration and poor mileage. Replacing your spark plugs regularly can help your vehicle run at peak performance, and it can also save you at least £100 in labour costs. Here’s our DIY guide on how to change your spark plugs. NOTE.  If you have a standard engine, the process is relatively simple.  However, some more advanced V-6…

This creates an uncomfortable set of circumstances, and also a considerable wealth gap between high earners and those who are struggling to live on the minimum wage.

    Jaguar, that quintessential and iconic English brand, unveiled the new XF in a somewhat unusual way in London. Jaguar is proud and rightfully so of its aluminuim architecture and engineering. It’s quoting 80 kilograms lighter than its nearest competitor in its segment and reduced CO2 emissions along with a mooted 70 miles per gallon (diesel engine). The way that Jaguar showed off its new car certainly is an eyebrow raiser; we watch humans walk along thin wires and marvel at how they stay on. Jag went further and ran the XF across two wires, crossing the Thames at Canary Wharf.

In the case of the perfectly posh X6 SUV, the peppy cargo and people hauler goes from something nicely suited for hauling a soccer team around to a beast more at home on a Grand Prix circuit.

Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts.

Today, we can positively say that this Dodge is from the latter camp. Meet the ‘Ramaro’, a four-wheel-drive 1998 Dodge Ram that can out-sprint even the most hallowed of Japanese supercars – a Nissan GT-R. Underneath the hood you won’t find a 360ci V8 or a Cummins diesel, but rather a GM LS2 V8 that packs a PT8891 Precision turbocharger at 8 psi, a built 4L60-E…
  • Magnus Walker Talks About the History of the Porsche 911 Turbo

    Jonathon Klein
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:30 pm
    The first Porsche 911 Turbo was launched forty years ago, in 1975. And although Porsche is often criticized for not doing enough to change the exterior of its cars through its history, much has changed within the realm that the 911 Turbo inhabits. Through that time, the 911 Turbo has gone through countless updates and evolutions that have drastically changed the character of the car as a whole. While some of these changes have not been well received by Porsche enthusiasts — i.e. lack of a manual — as a whole, the car has been improved year after year. And to illustrate that evolution…

    The Lincoln Continental once stood for American style and luxury, and it looks like it might be about to stage a comeback. There are indications that the Continental will be making a surprise return at the New York Auto Show next week.

    Seeing as Chicago was in the dead of winter, and snow and ice fell upon us as if it were one of the plagues of Egypt, my last few press vehicles had all been rugged 4×4’s. Obviously, the constant barrage of ice, and snow didn’t exactly make for the greatest conditions for any Hellcats or McLarens. Add to that the constant salting of the road, and you can see why the few Jeeps, the Chevy Colorado, and the luxurious Ford F-150 King Ranch were around. I figured the wonderful luxury that is the King Ranch would be the highpoint of my winter press fleet. That nothing could compare…

While this might be exciting, it’s often not the best way to get an excellent price on a car, and it leaves a lot to be desired when comparing the long-term value of a vehicle. A gently used vehicle often gives buyers the same “new car” feeling, with a lower price tag, a quicker repayment period, and identical benefits to a car that hasn’t been previously owned.

When you purchase a car it will come with a manual that lays out the appropriate schedule of servicing for your vehicle. For the best results, it is recommended that you stick to this schedule, but you do have a choice about who does your service: the manufacturer (or their registered dealerships) or an independent mechanic.

Its contender for the 2015 season is a heavily-revised R18 e-tron quattro. Alterations to the car's styling have focussed on aerodynamic improvements. While the basic monocoque is essentially unchanged, the front bodywork is all-new. Furthermore, the engine cover is more compact and modified sidepods should better deliver cooling air to the radiators. Audi has also taken the opportunity to enhance the R18's hybrid powertrain. In a significant move, its 4.0…

  • The Black Art of TIG Welding Aluminum- Crash Course Edition

    24 Mar 2015 | 10:15 am
    Tig Welding can be a black art if you start on your own with no direction. All too often we see first time TIG Welders struggle with the basics and this can lead to frustration and a long learning process. TIG welding aluminum can be more difficult than steel; even with a simplified TIG welder like the Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC. Aluminum tends to be less forgiving and there are some simple steps you can take before, during, and after the weld that can help you successfully weld aluminum.

  • Save that Panel! Empire Fabrication Brings a Smashed Porsche 356 Fender Back from the Dead

    4 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    Part of being a good metal worker is the ability to read a panel and what needs to be done to correct an issue or make the metal do what you want. Once you are "in-tune" with the metal you can correct some pretty crazy damage in a panel. This really comes in handy when you're faced with body damage. In most cases a smashed up bolt-on panel like a front fender would just warrant a call to a sheet metal supplier, a trip to the junkyard, or an eBay search, that is if you have a "common" vehicle.

Hyundai has the latter down pat, but there are some that wonder if they could do more on the brand front.

That means that they aren’t inclined to be influenced by the marketing and PR types of manufacturers of anything from household appliances to automobiles. Used car shoppers should take note of CR’s 2015 list of the best used cars. Most notable on the list is Toyota, who have racked up four of the nine spots.

A couple of years ago at the Rally of the Tall Pines, Canadian rally star Pat Richard was leading the rally on the final stage. A bad landing tore a front brake hose. Ever the competitor, Richard lost little time in crimping off the offending line with a pair of vice-grips, hopped back in the car and kept going. This had forced…

  • You’ll Be Shocked At How Quick These Electric Drag Racers Are

    Shawn McAskill
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:50 am
    As far as most enthusiasts are concerned, the main argument against electric-powered vehicles is a lack of visceral connection between driver and car. No sound of an engine reaching crescendo, no vibration from a lumpy idle. No complicated dance between feet and hands for the perfect heel-toe downshift. Well, I personally think that a quarter-mile time somewhere in the 9 second range is pretty damn exciting for even the most hardcore among us! Imagine launching from a dead stop with 100% torque instantly available…not even the most sophisticated launch control system can offer that.
