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.

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.

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.

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
