The most impressive thing about the 2016 Ford Focus RS isn’t the Drift Mode or the fact that it’s stupidly fast on track without showing any sign of understeer. What you’ll really love is how refined and easy it is as a road car. No hot hatch ticks all the boxes quite like Ford’s does—and rejoice, for this Euro legend…
Looking through the cars Jalopnik has driven in 2015, I’m not sure there has been a better year for driving. At least, not in many decades.
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is supposed to be ballsier than your standard pickup truck, but softer than a true heavy duty three-quarter ton’er. So,is it the Goldilocks or the bastard stepchild? I put a little mud on its tires to find out.
Do you happen to be old and lazy enough to put a sloth to shame? I’m sorry, but the Infiniti Q30 is probably not the luxury car for you. Don’t worry, there’s always Lincoln. But if you’re young and active and looking for something different, Infiniti has a very compelling car for you.
When a group of maniacs with backgrounds at McLaren, Porsche, Pininfarina and more come to the conclusion that all of Britain’s road-legal track cars aren’t good enough, they almost have no choice but to make something better. Meet Elemental Cars and their Rp1 prototype, which is an attempt at doing just that.
The Shelby Mustang GT350R is one of the most anticipated cars of the year. With it’s amazing V8 engine and track focus, it’s the sort of car that we’ve wanted for ages. But does it deserve the same name as the 1960s original? We found out.
The Acura NSX has what felt like the longest gestation period in automotive history. And while it hasn’t really taken any longer to get a new NSX from concept to production than the Porsche 918 took, the amount of anticipation for the NSX made it feel like forever. Now we’ve finally driven it. Was it worth waiting for?
The McLaren 570S is the most important car built in Woking since Gordon Murray’s F1. Seriously. And as they discovered that less grip can equal more fun, not only did it turn out to be beautiful, but also bloody fantastic to drive. It’s a proper supercar for normal humans who want to go very fast without breaking a…
Let me paint the scene for you at the press launch of the refreshed 2016 Volkswagen Passat. Journalists went to dinner with the Volkswagen folks and stood around with wine glasses while well-dressed people offered us hors d’oeuvres. I was talking to a product planner when it happened: time slowed down, the room went…
Here in America, “diesel pickup truck” means world-lapping longevity and enough torque to nurple Paul Bunyan. Most everywhere else, diesel trucks are simply designed for economy. The 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax is a little bit of both, and a whole lot of awesome.
The first Tesla Model X full-electric SUVs have hit the road this week, and we got a a little time to shake it down all the way to 80 MPH in the company parking lot.
The 2016 Mini Clubman is almost fourteen feet of CompactPremiumFamilyCar, and I know what you’re thinking. It’s huge for a Mini. But hell, it’s also a proper wagon with enough space for five people. And it happens to be pretty good.
Jaguar reestablished itself as a car company worth caring about with the F-Type sports car and the upcoming XE sport sedan. Now they’re trying to turn that sparkle into real money by making the larger 2016 XF sedan distinctive, but practical enough to be a real rival to the Germans. I think it’s close.
Toyota has left their Taco sitting on the counter since 2005, and it has gotten stale. Nobody wants to eat a crusty taco, but that’s all there’s been on the menu for the longest time. By default, those hungry for a mid-size truck have had no choice but to clog their noses and scarf down what Chef Toyota was cranking…
I’ve been forbidden from telling you anything about the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma. But what I can do is show you some USDA prime choice, grade A offroad goodness right here in this photo gallery.
I’m coming into this review pretty conflicted. Not about the car — the new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is an extremely impressive vehicle, and I’ll cover why in plenty of detail — I’m conflicted about what this car actually means both to Cadillac and to us Americans, as people. It’s not bad, necessarily — well, here, we’ll…
The scene is Weissach, Porsche’s legendary and also intimidating proving ground. There’s a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and inside is Chris Harris—a man who hates flappy paddles and has just two hours to distill the essence of Porsche’s most evolved 911. It’s is a brutally fast machine, considering it is a hold-out…
Honda’s made quite a few of my favorite cars. So I was stoked to see how far they’d come since the last Civic I’d driven; a ‘99 Si that of course ended up in a river at the hands of high school car enthusiasts. The 2015 Honda Civic SE is more advanced, but I don’t know about “better.”
“We don’t give a shit about times on a test track.” That’s what Mazda’s engineering guru Dave Coleman told me. And that’s not only what makes the 2016 Mazda Miata an amazing car, but also a great Miata. The definitive lightweight sports car is back and it’s bringing a renaissance along with it.
