Living On And Off Road With The 2015 Chevy Colorado And GMC Canyon

Sometimes I feel like a shitty Texan because I'm not a truck guy. I don't normally have much use for huge trucks and I don't really enjoy driving them. I'd rather do a track day in some hot hatch or cheap sports car than go off-roading. But after two weeks of driving a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon back to… » 3/26/15 4:16pm Thursday 4:16pm

The Ford Focus ST Is Fun Even When You Have A McLaren In Your Garage

You might think that with the unusual circumstance of having a McLaren 650S in my garage, I would have no time for a humble hatchback that costs about a tenth its price. Not so, when the hatchback in question is the Ford Focus ST. Need a fun normal car for when you’re not in your supercar? Here’s a great choice. » 3/24/15 3:00pm Tuesday 3:00pm

Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG: The Jalopnik Review

Mercedes has decided that America won't accept the same A-Class small hatchback that anchors their lineup around the world. However, they do think you'd like the GLA-Class, a small hatchback with slightly more ground clearance. But what you really want is the GLA45, a nutjob rally-hatch monster that makes no sense and… » 3/20/15 12:24pm 3/20/15 12:24pm

250 Miles In A McLaren 650S: A Search For Speed, Barbecue And Joy

What would you do if you were offered a McLaren 650S Spider — a convertible, mid-engine sports car with stunning looks, 641 horsepower, a curb weight of about 3,000 pounds, and the ability to hit 60 mph from a standstill in three seconds — but you could only drive it 250 miles? » 3/19/15 1:23pm 3/19/15 1:23pm

McLaren 650S Spider: All The Great Little Details

If you pay nearly $312,000 for a car, it had better be pretty special, right? Fortunately, the McLaren 650S Spider has special in spades. Besides its insane turbo power and glorious handling, a lot of that specialness is in the little details. Here are some of my favorites. » 3/18/15 4:05pm 3/18/15 4:05pm

2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible R-Line: The Jalopnik Review

No car has transformed as radically over the course of its nameplate as the Volkswagen Beetle. It started life as a plebeian, practical family car with the engine in the back driven by Germans and then hippies and then crazy people, and then it morphed into a super cute front-wheel drive premium lifestyle accessory in… » 3/18/15 2:00pm 3/18/15 2:00pm

I Was A Fast & Furious Virgin Until I Saw Furious 7 Last Night

I'd never seen a Fast And Furious film before last night's surprise premiere of Furious 7 at Austin's SXSW, but I'd seen enough clips that I thought I knew what to expect. Nope. There were way more cars flying out of planes than I'd imagined and The Rock and Jason Statham fight in a room full of windows. It was… » 3/16/15 10:21am 3/16/15 10:21am

We're Driving The NC Miata One Last Time, What Do You Want To Know?

The NC-generation Miata has been around since 2006 with just a few small tweaks and a facelift. But later this year, the NC will be replaced by the gorgeous new ND. But before that happens, what do you want to know about the NC? » 3/13/15 10:16am 3/13/15 10:16am

2015 VW Golf SportWagen: The Diesel Manual Wagon Is Alive In America!

For American enthusiasts, no style of car is as coveted and sought-after as the diesel wagon with a manual gearbox. Why can't we have torque, efficiency and room to carry all of our stuff for relatively cheap like the rest of the world? Luckily, we're on the eve of the launch of the new 2015 Golf SportWagen, and it's… » 3/12/15 12:02pm 3/12/15 12:02pm

Champagne, iPads And Torque: The Bonkers Toys On This $406,527 Bentley

Rather than make this a straightforward review of the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed, which sounds dreadfully boring, I'm simply going to list all the things that make it completely, utterly ridiculous — in a good way. » 3/11/15 12:27pm 3/11/15 12:27pm

Big redesign, big stats, big money. You already know this about the 2015 Ford F-150 so we'll cut straight to beating the crap out of Ford's finest work; a $60,470 EcoBoost Platinum SuperCrew. We found out what consumers actually get out of Ford's mega redesign. » 3/03/15 1:14pm 3/03/15 1:14pm

2015 Infiniti Q50S Hybrid: The Jalopnik Review

Infinitis are boring. Infinitis are for marketing VPs. Infinitis have no appeal. Infinitis are just uprated Nissans. These notions are all part of the grand public mythos of Infiniti. And all of them are false. » 2/25/15 4:20pm 2/25/15 4:20pm

2016 Volvo XC90: Why This Is Sweden's Most Important Car In Years

For Volvo, the 2016 XC90 is not just a new model, but also the most important step in the relaunch of their brand and a luxury SUV that has to make it big in America in order for them to succeed. Clearly, they couldn't screw this up. They didn't. » 2/24/15 2:27pm 2/24/15 2:27pm

1972 Citroën DS Break: The Jalopnik Classic Review

I'll admit, when I moved to Chapel Hill, NC from LA last year, I was pretty despondent about leaving LA's amazing carscape. I'm delighted to say that I was more pessimistic than I needed to be. This was proven conclusively when I passed a house, not five minutes from my own, that was infested with Citroëns. Seeing… » 2/18/15 2:34pm 2/18/15 2:34pm

You have a problem. You want a performance car, but you don't have the means to get a Ferrari or even a Corvette Z06... unless you want to live in it too. But don't fret, Mr. or Mrs. Gearhead, because the automakers have plenty of budget choices for you. This is our roundup of what you should buy and what you should… » 2/16/15 12:30pm 2/16/15 12:30pm

2015 BMW 228i Convertible: Exactly What You Expect, And That's Good

I'm a fan of the 2-Series. It's not only one of my favorite new BMWs to come along in years, but one of my favorite new cars, period. That's why I was eager to see what happened to the 228i when you chop the roof off, stick on a folding cloth top, and add nearly 300 pounds to it. » 2/06/15 10:10am 2/06/15 10:10am

​Tesla Model S P85D: The Jalopnik Review

I was being so good, doing all the unglamorous car reviewer stuff. Driving in a congested area, inching through start-and-stop traffic, running over rough asphalt. After about 30 minutes I'd had enough. I switched the driving mode to Insane and mashed the throttle away from a deserted traffic light. Bad idea. » 2/05/15 12:00pm 2/05/15 12:00pm

I Drove Every Aston Martin

A scream rang from across the canyons. A dull roar, really, dull only because I haven't yet punched it, sitting Right Here in an Aston Martin Vanquish, and I am in a devastating, crippling traffic jam that only the Malibu hills could provide: Ferrari 430, McLaren MP4-12C, Nissan GTR, Maserati GranTurismo… » 2/04/15 12:20pm 2/04/15 12:20pm

What It's Like To Drive The Greatest Soviet Car Of All Time

Before I went to Iceland to review the Land Rover Discovery Sport, I had one goal in mind: drive a Lada. I've always been fascinated by the old Soviet-bloc cars, and I've hardly ever even seen one in person. I knew Iceland had some, and thanks to the good people at Geysir Car Rental, my inane dream was made an inane… » 2/02/15 3:55pm 2/02/15 3:55pm
