For a limited time, if you purchase a Prime Pantry box with $60 worth of stuff in it, Amazon will throw in a free stainless steel or aluminum water bottle, because why not?
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you can go on and on about while you’re busy distracting yourself from your day job.
You finally have a reason to care about the Acura ILX: at least one of them has survived the crucible of 200,000 miles of usage, and we have painfully detailed notes on its maintenance to see what it actually took to keep this little car running for so long over such a short period of time.
The 2017 Buick Regal TourX gives us some hope for the future of wagons, and today it brings even more good news. Buick says the car will come standard with a 250 horsepower turbo motor, all-wheel-drive, and a starting price that seriously undercuts other luxury wagons.
Something to think about: why doesn’t everyone drive a Geo Storm?
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
ECCO has been around since the ‘60s but the timeless, comfortable styles of their men’s and women’s shoes are what’s on display today. Amazon’s Gold Box has ECCO men’s dress shoes, loafers, and sneakers, and women’s sandals and sneakers, for as low as $52. Trust me, these things will last, but this 24-hour sale will…
If you have the need for three rows and getting places quick as heck, then today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Benz R63 may be the car for you. That is if it doesn’t also require three rows of cash to buy.
At a hearing today, Republicans in Congress made clear they want to drastically increase the number of semi-autonomous and autonomous cars tested on American roadways. It’s a proposal that should make driverless car developers giddy but could potentially pose safety risks if not done correctly.
The Jaguar XE is a pretty good, competitively priced compact sedan. Give it to Jag’s Special Vehicle Operations and you get a limited edition 600 horsepower compact sedan that costs a whopping $192,200.
If you really can’t stretch the $16,000 difference, Aston Martin has developed a second DB11 model with only a 4.0 liter V8 and a cheaper starting cost of just $198,995. Don’t feel bad, it’s still a thing of beauty.
The best Kinja Deals aren’t on the products you’ve been waiting months for a price drop on (unless you’re a gamer), they’re on products you didn’t know you needed, or didn’t even know existed.
If you’ve ever been moderately upset about something arbitrary—like, say, the lack of pop up headlights on modern automobiles—then prepare to be ever so slightly vindicated.
By now we’ve all heard the biggest news of 2017, fated in the heavens for eons before humanity’s earliest ancestors walked the savannahs: There’s an eclipse this August 21st, and it’s carving a path right through these great United States of America. GO GET IT NERDS.
Waymo, Google’s autonomous vehicle division, confirmed that it’s developing self-driving long-haul trucks earlier this month. Now we know what they look like.
If a lightweight and track-focused McLaren is what you want, then look away from this Lego 1:1 scale 720S because it is neither light nor would it hold up well in a crash. Indeed, it has no engine would be impossible to drive anyways.
The question of whether or not you can damage a car that asks for premium gas by using regular gas is one that never seems to die. I’ve seen this question tear families apart, with sobbing and recriminations—it’s not pretty. That’s why I reached out to an actual fuel systems engineer to get to the bottom of this…
Michelin is showing off a concept tire they’re calling VISION, even though it’s really a concept tweel, if we’re being technical here. Michelin also says the tire is “rechargeable,” whatever that means in this context, and also “breaks with the codes of a tire,” whatever the hell that means. Oh, and their promo video…
