The 2016 Tesla Model X costs $80,000 before you start adding options or tax breaks. But you’d only know that if you were on “the list” to buy one of the first ones. Now you just want to see it because you can’t, right?

Mercedes showed up to the Tokyo Motor Show not with a gigantic luxury yacht, not with a huge horsepower supercoupe, but with the Vision Tokyo hydrogen-powered autonomous minivan. And with no need for a driver, there’s no real need for seats as we know them.
Tesla seems happy to talk about the new Model X as an SUV. It’s been called a crossover, too. But is it either? Did Elon actually just make a minivan?
What if you don’t have the flame-spitting, huge horsepower car of your dreams? What if you’re stuck driving your mom’s minivan? Can you still do a burnout? Uh hell to the yes you can.
All every minivan wants to do is soar, flying free through the air, up in the clouds devoid of any soccer-toting constraints. When they do soar through the air, our good friend gravity always brings them back. And when they do come crashing back to Earth, it is almost always hilarious.
Toyota’s “Ever Better Expedition” sounds like the coolest corporate retreat ever; it’s a 110-day transcontinental drive with a fleet of Toyotas including a Land Cruiser 200 and this absurd Sienna minivan, which they’re calling the Ultimate Utility Vehicle.
Ever wondered what life would be like if your family minivan had a worked Chevy V8?
A family in Michigan called 911 yesterday morning to relay about as horrifying a winter driving situation as I can imagine. They were trapped in their minivan, stuck onto the bumper of a semi truck that didn't know they were there.
Yes, yes, another minivan burnout smoking the front... wait, rear tires? What's going on here?
In the 1980s, Chrysler was eating GM's lunch when it came to the hot new segment of the day, Minivans. GM in its particularly 1980s hubris said they were developing a minivan that was going to blow its ChryslerCo rivals out of the water. That, uh, didn't happen.
Does this friendly-faced minivan give you the giggles? What are you, fucking nuts? I'd have to sleep the lights on for a week if I saw this rolling wall of terror in oncoming traffic. Go ahead and feed your kids to it though, they'll love every fucking second of it.
How cool are minivans? Cool enough to get a thousand horsepower.
(Most press releases are boring, as is writing about them. So, I took an exceptionally boring press release and, um, spiced it up a bit.)
The swagger wagon returns with what is perhaps the most useful feature ever offered on a minivan: a microphone and speaker system that helps parents scream at their horrible children in the back. Genius!

The new minivan that Chrysler talked so much about but never wanted to say which brand would get it is officially going to be an all-new Town & Country. It'll also get a plug-in hybrid version that gets a mic-dropping 75 mpg. Both versions debut in 2016.
Forget your Ferrari pilots, the happiest driver I've seen in ages was behind the wheel of an old minivan.
"Hey, Collins, why don't you just get out of here and go to the 2015 Kia Sedona launch party. That should be low-key and keep you out of trouble for a few hours." Erroneous, erroneous on both accounts.
Minivans don't have to suck, so feel free to start the next baby boom and choose one of these ten to carry your spawn.
