Ugly Station Wagons Are Serious Business With The 1977 Chrysler Lebaron…

It's far from the most attractive station wagon ever made, but to us that's a large part of the malaise quirk and charm of the 1977 Chrysler Lebaron Town & Country. Just don't tell the ultra serious Chrysler spokesman also featured in this vintage commercial. » 6/16/12 9:00am 6/16/12 9:00am

Even Toyota is "Apple's bitch"

Toyota's clever attempt to reach owners of "jailbroken" iPhones and other iOS devices via a Scion tC-theme posted on Cydia — an alternative appstore for the devices — garnered downloads and press attention for smart marketing. Now the campaign's gaining attention for completely caving to Apple. UPDATE. » 4/06/11 11:35am 4/06/11 11:35am

2011 Scion tC: The GT-R’s "Mini Me"

The Playstation generation hearts them some GT-R, but they don't have jobs so they can't afford one. Solution: The 2011 Scion tC apes some of the fast Nissan's styling cues, but the rest is crappy Toyota parts. » 3/31/10 2:00pm 3/31/10 2:00pm

The revised 2011 Scion tC will debut at the New York Auto Show along with a new, probably iQ-like subcompact model. This is allegedly a teaser for the new tC, but darned if we could see much new. [TheCollegeDriver] » 3/25/10 1:30pm 3/25/10 1:30pm

What It Feels Like To Drift With Tanner Foust

Tanner Foust recently drifted his way up a section of Los Angeles's famed Mulholland Highway. The video is everywhere, but I was once lucky enough to ride with him. Wanna know what it feels like to be inside the car? » 3/18/10 2:00pm 3/18/10 2:00pm

Front Wing-Equipped Scion tC Looks Dumb, Sets Record

Just when we thought we'd seen it all, along comes Chris Rado and his huge front wing-equipped Scion tC, putting down-force right where it's needed. The result — a new FWD lap record at Willow Springs. » 6/04/09 10:00am 6/04/09 10:00am

Scion Gets Its Assy McGee On For Youth Marketing

Scion sure does know its youth demographic. Is there anything a kid enjoys more than faux graffiti designs and a talking ass cartoon character? No, not really. Scion's latest outreach to the youth market comes with a mock commercial featuring Assy McGee as a Scion xB slinging salesman—Assy is the gun-welding main… » 4/02/08 4:15pm 4/02/08 4:15pm

Scion Hako Coupe Concept Live Unveil

Scion is known for trying to be hip with the kids, but I have a feeling its latest concept, the Hako, is a couple steps too far, even for the spikey haired, angsty kids of America. Hako means box and this is very boxy, even more boxy than the xB. If you remember, Scion originally teased the Hako Coupe concept two… » 3/19/08 3:57pm 3/19/08 3:57pm

Scion Haku Spied Before Press Conference

It was like a scene from The Sting, with yours truly and Robert Farago of The Truth About Cars as the fast talking, quick thinking con men (we'll let you decide who is Newman and who is Redford). The Scion press room was surrounded with security but the awkward prize, the new Scion Hako (aka Scion tC replacement), was… » 3/19/08 2:50pm 3/19/08 2:50pm

Chryslerati: Gorman Edition


A recent stop in lovely Gorman, California for some overpriced gasoline and a bag of peanuts revealed this Chrysler TC. A ghostly sheet covered what was assuredly a fine interior, and also hinted at possible hard or soft top trouble.

Oh yeah, in all of the excitement to show off the Scion's two brothers yesterday, the all-new 2008 Scion xD and the re-styled 2008 Scion xB, everyone forgot about the new-for-2008 Scion brand sales leader, the tC.

Chryslerati on eBay!

Not since the debut of the Cordoba has a small Chrysler given you so much of what you needed. The TC by Maserati was the zenith of K-platform technology and truly a force to be reckoned with. You can have your Allant s, your Reattas, your etceteras and similars. But the Chryslerati? Now that, friends, predated the… » 9/23/06 12:49am 9/23/06 12:49am

Yup, we know the kiddies love the lists — and Forbes/ForbesAutos readers love it when they can get all their information in table format. But seriously, WTF is JD Power, not to mention all of those Associates, thinking in placing a Scion tC and a Nissan Armada anywhere near the same list as a Porsche Cayman.
