Exploring America’s Enduring Love Affair with Chevy Trucks 

Last year, in an attempt to get a better understanding of consumers in search of trucks for sale, Chevrolet conducted an online survey. The survey consisted of 1012 respondents, all truck drivers aged 18 years and older, scattered across the 50 states with additional data collected from Texas, California, and Florida to ensure more diversified […]

Meet the 2020 Mazda CX-3…Zero?

In early March, current auto news headlines were split divisively, largely fixated on the overstimulating high-end reveals of the Geneva Auto Show or the continuing woes of domestic automakers. But while the latter does nothing to generate excitement, and the former is largely unrelatable to the common consumer, there were a few unveilings that split […]

Ford Continues to get the ‘Edison Treatment’

No-one would (or even could) accuse Ford of being subtle, or passive-aggressive in the communication of their intentions. From day one, the pioneering giant has moved forward unapologetically, leading the charge of the automotive evolution, inspiring younger companies that would eventually rise to claim the coveted title of worthy competitors. And it’s with this in […]

When it Comes to EV, KIA Has Big Aspirations

These days, current auto news bears no absence of hybrid and EV-centric headlines. As evidenced by the L.A. Auto Show, Consumer Electronics Show and NAIAS (as well, we expect, by the upcoming industry shows in both Chicago and Geneva) there are two major areas of focus for automotive R&D teams. The first, and slightly-less accessible, […]

Why the NEW KIA Telluride Steals the Spotlight

Considering the amount of time that we spend around here, sifting thanklessly through the latest and greatest in automotive news headlines, it would be dishonest if we acted like it wasn’t sort of a ‘mixed bag’. Walk through our offices, take a poll, establishing each employee’s automotive preferences and you’ll find little overlap. Collectively, we […]

Comparing the 2019 GMC Terrain vs 2019 Buick Encore

Truth be told, one of the more enjoyable elements of my profession comes in the opportunity to explore underappreciated makes and models. Once you step outside the Big 3’s most prominent brands, leading imports and certain aspirational vehicles there leaves a balance of perfectly competitive offerings that are easy to overlook. For example, the casual […]

Audi Has Us Thinking About In-Cabin VR (and They’re Not Alone)

While Audi may have counted themselves among the upmarket brands which declared an early absence from this year’s NAIAS in Detroit, they were on-hand in Las Vegas just a week earlier, attending the CES Technology conference. So what technology was Audi on-hand to present? While one might assume that it has something to do with […]

Volkswagen Looks to 2025

As of late, automotive news seems to be moving at breakneck speed, detailing the race towards enhanced sustainability, autonomous self-driving technology and the surprising partnerships between automakers and tech giants (and even automakers themselves) in the hopes of gaining the ultimate pole position within the industry. But not all news is good; and even if […]

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N Does All The Right Things (But Do We Actually Like It?)

The phrase “hot hatchbacks” has been thrown around a bit lately, driven by the recent trend of creating coupe-inspired variants of different vehicle styles. In the case of the “five-door coupe,” it calls for a slimmed down hatch which allows the body style to more closely resemble a sedan, rather than the classic hatchback aesthetic. […]

Revisiting the 2018 Paris Motor Show

Even over a month later, a search through current auto news headlines will inevitably return us to last month’s Paris Motor Show. Held biennially, the show dates back to 1898, serving as the pioneering showcase for the ever-evolving automotive market, and one of the largest shows to this day.  Visited more frequently than such showcase […]
