After we exclusively revealed shots of the new Jeep Cherokee rolling off the assembly line, Chrysler released the official shots of the vehicle a few hours later and ahead of schedule. The reaction to the car — particularly its nose and headlights — hasn't been as positive as the Mopar folks probably wanted. But the…
Lee Iacocca spent much of the 1980s bitching about import cars on TV and imploring that his K-cars were better than anything that came from Germany or Japan, let alone Ford or General Motors. "If you can find a better car, buy it," he told people. Sometimes they did.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway denies its for sale. Sent the denial out on the back-side of the press release they used to deny Randy Bernard would not be fired as IndyCar CEO [He was. Within days].
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
CUVs. We all love to hate them. But the fact is, they aren't going away any time soon. We're stuck with them. And as much as we hate to admit it, that may not be the worst thing in the world. They may be less efficient in some ways than a straight wagon, but they're convincing people to ditch the truck-bodied…
Remember when we showed you those photos of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee like, earlier today? If you doubted they were real, doubt no more. Jeep suddenly (and without telling us) released images of the new Cherokee with a short press release. Happy Friday!
So Watkins Glen put's on this event every year in September, The SVRA Vintage Gran Prix. I never heard anything about it till last year, and it immediately sparked my intrest. Vintage Race cars? Racing? Sign me up for that.
To many people, the Toyota Avalon is the most boring car in the world.
You’ll forgive this open ended question, because I heard of some engineering today that will make your heart weep.
Snooki, the short woman with a penchant for "guido juiceheads" from the popular television program Jersey Shore, used the money from her ironic fame to buy and uglify a Cadillac Escalade. Now she's selling it. Get excited?
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the most legendary race course in the United States of America. And since 1945, it has been owned by the Hulman-George family. If rumors are to be believed, that could soon be coming to an end.
Have you noticed a little too much bounce when you drive your car over bumps? Get out and push down on each corner of the car. If it bounces more than once or twice, it's time to replace the shocks or struts on that corner.
In the summer of 1988 my sister started dating some new guy. Like any younger brother I hated her boyfriend for merely existing, but that quickly changed when I saw what he was driving. I remember the first day I heard the exhaust note from his brown 280zx revving around the corner and barreling into our cul-de-sac.
No, BMW does not sell a 1-series wagon or hatchback in the United States. Yes, the BMW X1 is actually based on the E91 3-series wagon platform. No, you can't get it with a manual transmission here. Yes, you can get it with RWD. No, it isn't really an SUV. Yes, it's actually enjoyable.
The 1968 Keracolor goggle was the first perfectly spherical television made from fiberglass. It was the brainchild of an Englishman called Arthur Bracegirdle, and cost as much as a a family car. But it was still cheaper than a Lotus Europa...
We don't even know where to start with this Xterra's parking job. We need help.
There seems to be an unavoidable connection between being a producer of cars and being a producer of atrocities. It's not that suddenly being around cars sends you on a muderous rampage, it just seems that if you your country has gotten to the point in its development where it can produce automobiles, it's also…
Earlier today we showed you the first pictures of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It's the most daring Jeep design I've ever seen. But will all that daring make it a success or a failure?
