Over the past few years, legacy print magazine Motor Trend has built up a sizable and enviable digital video operation, including 5.6 million YouTube subscribers and an ambitious on demand video network. But earlier this week, in another sign of YouTube’s fading relevance to publishers and the increasing revenue…
Motor Trend’s Car of The Year award is very important to people who write press releases, and mostly no one else. You would, accordingly, think that the people and publications who write said press releases would make sure they were extra good and perfect. Not so, for MT’s big video announcement and the Alpha–ahem…
The Nissan GT-R has come a long way since its introduction back in 2007. It’s not only the go-to choice for rich kids buying their first performance car or the one all of the teens like to talk about, but it’s also just genuinely an incredible car that can still throw punches with the newer competition.
Discovery Communication’s Velocity has been coupled with TEN: The Enthusiast Network in a new joint venture, bringing together brands like MotorTrend and Roadkill, notable for nearly being all the way up the ass of Fiat Chrysler, with the TV network’s existing properties in a new massive automotive media empire.
One of the easiest ways to get an engine to make big horsepower is to hook it up to a bottle of Nitrous. But with great power, comes great responsibility—you can only spray so much of the good stuff into an engine before it blows up, and David Freiburger at Motor Trend found out exactly how much that is.
Tesla’s Model X crossover-egg has had a rough history with automatic doors—namely those fancy-but-flawed Falcon Wing doors for passengers. But the front doors also have an automatic opening feature, too, and they’re a bit bullish in the parking lot.
It would seem that for your next track day, illicit drag race against a Camaro or powerslide into a crowd of people outside Cars and Coffee, the 5.0-liter V8 Ford Mustang will be the best way to go.
Ed Loh is the editor-in-chief of Motor Trend.
Motor Trend wanted you to believe that they exclusively uncovered Apple’s mysterious car. They did not. Instead, what they have is an in-house render, a long and boring video, and a bad, desperate publicity stunt.
Motor Trend, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dodge, wasn’t the only publication to weigh in on SEMA’s wild-but-plausible allegations against the Environmental Protection Agency’s “clarifying” that it can regulate track car emissions. We covered it, lots of outlets covered it, so did they. But so far MT is the only…
Every year, Motor Trend brings together a bunch of cars to name their Best Driver's Car. And every year they drag race all ten of them on an air strip. But this year they have a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Nissan GT-R Nismo. Which one is faster?
The new four-door Ghibli from Maserati is a great car–certainly the best looking in it's class, and probably the most interesting, but it can't possibly hold a candle to the original.
Last year MotorTrend's video host Jessi Lang flew to Germany to test an extremely powerful tuned Abt Audi R8. She opened the car up on a local highway, and then her life nearly ended.
As we first reported Automobile fired its editor and much of its staff, and its parent company Source Interlink axed other employees (and possibly magazines). We also learned that Source Interlink was becoming The Enthusiast Network, or TEN. We've now obtained a copy of what appears to be the newly renamed company's…
Source Interlink, which owns Motor Trend and Hot Rod magazines, has shuttered Modified magazine, fired its editor, and is rumored to have let go of as many as 100 people from other publications according to sources.
The Ferrari F12 is an astounding car. But what's really amazing is the noise. It's ear porn. And hardcore, barely legal ear porn, at that.
Motor Trend knows how to go big. Evidence? Here's a 12 car drag race at an airstrip.
