The 2016 Toyota Tacoma: A Spicy Taco That Doesn't Taste All That New

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… » 8/17/15 10:27am 8/17/15 10:27am

2016 Cadillac CTS-V: A Glorious 640 HP Exercise In Overkill

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… » 7/31/15 1:30pm 7/31/15 1:30pm

Chris Harris Says If You Can Buy a 911 GT3 RS, Do It

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… » 7/08/15 3:19pm 7/08/15 3:19pm

The 2016 Mazda Miata Will Save The Sports Car

“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. » 6/01/15 10:00am 6/01/15 10:00am

First Drive: We Figured Out What The Ram Rebel Is By Trying To Kill It

So there we were in the 2015 Ram Rebel, lugs-deep in dirt on a rocky incline we couldn’t see over the hood, pondering our next move. Until some bro in a Ford FX4 went barreling past us, somebody called somebody a pussy, and the rest is a big blur of red sand and rock dust. » 5/19/15 2:40pm 5/19/15 2:40pm

The Chevrolet Camaro Is About To Have A Stingray Moment

My drive of a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro prototype was all-too brief because I crashed it into a wall (oops!) and got kicked out of the event, but I think I can tell you a little bit. But first, let us pause for reflection. After all, it’s not every day a new Camaro comes out. The nameplate’s nearly 50 years old and this… » 5/18/15 3:00pm 5/18/15 3:00pm

Driving Subaru's WRX STI Rally Car Will Melt Every Part Of Your Brain

Rallying is a nuanced art. It takes years of training to get to the level where you can drive an open class car like this Subaru WRX STI with a sequential gearbox and 500 pound feet of torque. But I didn't have years of training. I had hours. And driving it has warped my brain forever. » 1/26/15 12:45pm 1/26/15 12:45pm

2015 Corvette Z06: A 650 HP All-American Middle Finger To Euro Supercars

The Z06 is a 650 horsepower Corvette. Six hundred. And fifty. A Corvette that gets to 60 in less than three seconds. A Corvette than can stop from 60 in less than 100 feet. A Corvette that can pull 1.2 G in a corner. And a Corvette that costs less than $100,000. It's an all-American middle finger to every other high… » 1/08/15 12:00pm 1/08/15 12:00pm

First Drive: Mercedes-AMG GT Isn't A 911 Fighter, It's More Than That

I have a problem. I've never managed to keep the throttle floored the entire stretch of Laguna Seca's front straight in anything over 500 horsepower. It's practically my home track, but as soon as I start climbing that crest, self-preservation kicks in and I lift. Every. Damn. Time. That changed in the Mercedes-AMG GT. » 11/12/14 9:47am 11/12/14 9:47am

The Charger Hellcat Is The Most American/Insane Car You Can Buy

There's really only two things you need to know about the 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat: it may be the most American car you can buy right now, and it's absolutely, unrepentantly clamshit insane. The idea of a well-appointed four-door family car with enough power to liquify everyone you love is crazy. And wonderful. But… » 10/29/14 12:05pm 10/29/14 12:05pm
