2019 Ram Heavy Duty: Drugstore Cowboys Need Not Apply

Hey Cool! I get to write about a truck for once. Normally this is Carl Anthony’s end of things, but this time the truck news finally ended up on my desk. I like trucks. They’re no BS, no screwing around kind of deals. They’re tools that exist to get the job done, and everything else; the bells and whistles, the frills and things like that, just don’t really matter. In this case, we’re talking about the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty. Posers Need Not Apply Before we get into how good of a tool the 2019 Ra...

Help reinvent mobility! Lyft is looking for an Industrial Designer

The ride-sharing app that just went public with its valuation is definitely a disrupter in the mobility world. The San Francisco-based start-up locked horns with Uber early in the game, and steadily grew as its competitor, becoming the second-largest trans-national corporation with a 30% market share in the United States. Lyft’s next big move is to expand in the e-scooter business, with their hardware partnership with Xiaomi. Lyft is looking for an Industrial Designer to join its team in San Fra...

New Congestion Toll in New York City Doesn’t Exempt Motorcyclists

Motorcycles Aren’t What’s Clogging the Roads New York City traffic can be nightmarish at times. In an effort to combat this and encourage people to take public transit options, New York lawmakers decided it would be smart to add in a toll during the busiest parts of the day. They implemented this law, the first of its kind in the entire nation, in an effort to help alleviate traffic congestion. The money from those tolls will go to helping the city repair its subway system. Honestly, probably p...

Test Drive: The 2019 Mercedes-AMG 53 Series

High-performance in a subtle, sophisticated package High-performance cars are meant to be fun, but brake calipers colored like Skittles and giant spoilers are a little overt for many drivers who don’t want their car to scream speed. For Mercedes-AMG—the performance arm of the Stuttgart-based brand—all that performance is available in more subtle designs. While not exactly impervious to the call of a fixed rear wing …

Rare Rides: A Beige Plymouth Champ – American Malaise From 1980

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Limited – Long-distance Hauler

Today’s crossover craze may be in part a rebuke of minivans, but that hasn’t stopped Chrysler from putting effort into the class.
