2021 Rivian

At the New York Auto Show, Rivian founder R.J. Scaringe was more forthcoming about where the EV automaker startup is headed. By 2025 the pickup truck and SUV maker plans to have six products on offer, and at the moment none of them are sedans. Scaringe told Bloomberg Rivian would stick to larger vehicles because …

2020 Audi S6 Sedan

Say hello to the sporty Audi S6 sedan and S7 Sportback (and hello and goodbye to the S6 Avant wagon we won’t be getting). Based on the new-generation A6 and A7 introduced for 2019, the freshly unveiled 2020 models follow the usual S formula in that they get more aggressive front trim, wider side sills, …

2019 Chevrolet Silverado

A four-cylinder pickup truck is usually a sad-looking thing on tiny steel wheels with a lawn mower and some rakes sticking out the back. It’s nothing someone aspires to. And yet, this 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Double Cab painted a brilliant red drew numerous unsolicited compliments of “Hey, nice truck” despite having a mere …

2020 Ford Mustang

There’s no question that the Shelby GT350 and GT500 Ford Mustangs are spectacular performance machines, but they’re out of reach for many people. It seems Ford has a solution, having just announced an “entry-level” performance 2020 Ford Mustang is on the way. But that’s all the company said about it. Naturally, this has our speculation …

2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

It’s my long-held professional opinion that the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI is the best all-around enthusiast transportation device. It does more things better than anything it competes with and embarrasses cars costing twice as much with its better overall refinement and build quality. That’s great news for the 2019 Jetta GLI, since it’s effectively a …

2019 Toyota Prius Beats

When we test cars here at MotorTrend, we don’t just measure acceleration times and braking distances. We also record lateral grip on a skidpad and how long it takes them to complete our proprietary figure-eight course. Why a figure eight? Sometimes called a “race rack in a bottle,” it’s the best way to objectively measure …

Bentley Continental Gt V8

If the third-generation Bentley Continental GT of your dreams has a W-12 engine under its broad hood, you have a little wait ahead of you. The British luxury maker has announced that its V-8 will power the first coupes and convertibles available in the U.S. when it launches in July. The U.S., in fact, will debut …

2019-Acura-ZDXc

Honda Motor Co said on Tuesday it would recall 1.2 million Honda and Acura vehicles in North America to replace defective Takata airbags on the driver’s side. The company said it was aware of one injury linked to the defect, which may have caused the airbag to rupture when it was deployed in a crash. Of the 23 total …

Kia Telluride SUV

Last month, Kia announced pricing on its much-anticipated Telluride crossover. It may not be a body-on-frame SUV, but it has a cool design, a nice interior, and third-row seating, which should make it popular with families. Add in Kia’s excellent bumper-to-bumper warranty and its even better powertrain warranty, and we have a feeling the Telluride …

2020 Hyundai Sonata Tries

Hyundai liked it when the whole world sang its praises for the revolutionary redesign it gave the sixth generation Sonata. Most of the industry did a double take when the attractive Sonata took the design risks it did, but Hyundai never followed up. Efforts have been made over the past couple years to liven the …
