2015 Ford F-150 Power Wheels: The Four-Year-Old Kid Review

Since I (allegedly) won't fit in the 2015 Ford F-150 Power Wheels, I roped my cousin's kid into helping me review it. He rated its attributes on a numerical scale; Looks? "Nine. Actually, 90." Functionality? "F150." Ok, I see what you did there you cheeky little bastard... this isn't going to be easy. » 1/16/15 1:15pm 1/16/15 1:15pm

The 2015 Subaru WRX Isn't Dead With A CVT, It Just Smells Funny

Before we get into the opinions about the new 2015 Subaru WRX, let's get some basic facts out of the way. It still has 268 horsepower. It still has full-time all-wheel-drive. And now it has the long-heralded infinitely-geared scepter of driving fun death, a Continuously Variable Transmission. But let me blow your… » 1/09/15 5:00pm 1/09/15 5:00pm

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

2015 Lincoln MKC: The Jalopnik Review

I guess I should start by saying there's nothing wrong with the Lincoln MKC. I had one over the holidays, I drove the crap out of it, and it did its job just fine. My ass and my passengers' asses and our stuff was conveyed from one point to another in ease and comfort. I could easily live with this car. What I don't… » 1/06/15 1:15pm 1/06/15 1:15pm

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 Eight Speed Automatic Corvette Stingray Does Not Suck At All

Last week, the General Motors company sent me one of their Corvette Stingrays. Only unlike every other Stingray I've driven so far, this one had two pedals instead of three. Normally, this outcome would plunge me into a deep existential crisis, like when I drove that automatic Mazda Miata over the summer. This time… » 10/30/14 1:05pm 10/30/14 1:05pm
