The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R Is Proof VW Doesn't Really Hate Us

"Volkswagen doesn't understand America." That's what the critics like to say. It's what they blame for a lack of cars that can crush it in the mass market and Volkswagen's slump during the best sales year in a decade. But there is proof that Volkswagen is at least listening to some us, and the proof is in the all new,… » 1/29/15 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

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 Monday 12:45pm

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
