A new Toyota RAV4 is coming out this month at the New York Auto Show. I know you’re as thrilled as anyone to see what your next Uber ride will look like, but do we really need to “tease” it out over a series of weeks? Of course not! But here we are.
Amidst the sea of crossovers and SUVs that flooded the show floor at this year’s New York Auto Show, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon stood alone and self-assured in its 840-horsepower drag strip-slaying abilities.

The cars, the roads, the entire transportation systems of tomorrow will be influenced by decisions and events of today. How exactly? That’s what we’re going to argue about, this Friday and Saturday, in two panels at the New York Auto Show. You should come through.
The Jalopnik Trivia night, held at the Jacob Javits Center last weekend at the New York Auto Show, was a roaring success. Because there was fun and laughter and car chatter. All of the best things to make up an evening!
No, seriously, check out all this stuff.
By now, you’ve heard of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. It has 840 horsepower. It has a 2.7-liter supercharger. It can come with only one seat. And it is, for all intents and purposes, a drag strip slayer. Here’s how it does it.
Yesterday Lucid’s CTO admitted that his company didn’t have enough money (yet) to start building its proposed factory. Lucid will face a delay until it raises more funds, which is a worrying part of the tortoise versus the hare side of the electric car world.
From the outside, attending the press days at an auto shows may seem like fun (to some, anyway.) And while it’s a nice break from all day every day at the office, you have to remember that we’re spending up to two to three days in musty convention centers for you. You, the readers, whom we work so hard to inform.
After extensive research and roadside wrenching, at long last we’ve determined the reason David Tracy’s 1948 Jeep off-roading project has had so many problems: it’s because you are not coming to Jalopnik’s New York Auto Show trivia party on Saturday.
Hold the phone. HOLD THE GODDAMN PHONE. This came out a few weeks ago but we need to re-iterate this a bit. You can now get a car with a wool interior. Yes, wool. The new 2018 Range Rover Velar, specifically. We sat in them yesterday, and they are comfy as hell.

If you’re still sad about Audi’s Le Mans prototype effort going the way of the dodo, Audi has a mild consolation prize. It’s an R8 in Audi Sport racing colors, just like the R8s, R10s and others that you dearly miss seeing compete. Now you can live like Dieselgate never happened, and never forced any major cuts to…
Why buy a Range Rover, or a Bentley Bentayga, or a Jaguar F-Pace, or a Rolls-Royce Mullinan, Porsche Cayenne, or whatever crazy beast Lamborghini cooks into an SUV in the near future when you can say you drive the GV80 magic SUV from Genesis, a car brand that sounds made up!
I’m not ashamed to say that the current Hyundai Sonata has caught my eye on the street a few times, mostly just because I’m not used to a Hyundai looking that normal yet and I need to process what I’m looking at. This new 2018 Hyundai Sonata is also not bad. There’s nothing wrong with it.
