As cars gain autonomous-driving capability and ride sharing becomes the new normal, it seems that those of us who enjoy driving and owning our very own cars will be left out in the cold. Or will we? Looking out to the year 2040, Jaguar’s Future-Type concept previews a car that can go about its duties …

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S

Rolls Royce may be making waves with the all-new Phantom VIII, but it’s not the only big uber-luxury sedan with news. The aging but still handsome Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition is here to prolong the life of the four-door Continental before a new model arrives sometime soon. It packs some small but …

2018 Dodge Durango

We’re gathered along with other members of the media at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to drive a trio of new vehicles from Dodge’s performance arm. Alongside a pair of SRT Challengers – the Demon and the Hellcat Widebody – the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT towers over the coupes, and is surprisingly menacing to behold. Its …

Dodge has finally announced availability and pricing for the 475-horsepower Dodge Durango SRT. The Detroit-built SUV will start at $64,090 and hit dealer lots toward the end of the year.

The do-it-all wondercar. Some folks search for it like Ponce De Len after the Fountain of Youth. Others declare the very concept anathema: The jack of all trades is master of none, they harp. Both are right, and both are wrong. The proof? The ten-cylinder, carbon-and-aluminum 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder. As a cargo hauler, …

The Nissan Qashqai is Europe’s best-selling urban crossover, and is now available with significant enhancements which further develop its premium character.

What’s 220 pounds to General Motors’ new 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8 engine? Not much, based on the minuscule differences between the performances of the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD tested here and a slightly smaller, extended-cab Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with the same engine we tested earlier this year. This 8000-pound GMC—a high-zoot, crew-cab Denali model—is 9.5 …

It’s a sad day for mankind, as one of the last old-school V8 sedans sold in America reaches the end of the line, together with the Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV). The final Chevrolet SS turned out to be a black car with a manual gearbox, already on its way to U.S. shores. We …

2018 Chevrolet Traverse

When it was time for a redesign, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse swam in a different direction than its GMC Acadia twin. While the Acadia shrunk, the Traverse grew to better accommodate its third row. In the process, the Traverse now looks more like the Tahoe than a midsize SUV. Did Chevrolet go too far? The …
