La Jornada del Muerto, Spaceport America and meandering the north side of Elephant Butte State Park

 Drove into Truth or Consequences this morning after breakfast to pick up a rubber bumper to try and isolate the new fuel pump and perhaps ameliorate it's tapping sound.  I tanked up Mariko and determined 21.7 MPG with a mix of offroad and pavement driving. Geronimo portrait on the side of a building....there's a museum I might check out another day. As I was in town, I decided to check out La Jornada del Muerto or Dead Man's Journey.  A stretch of road that had been part of the Camino Real o...

2022 Nissan Frontier: An Old Dog Impresses With New Tricks

The 2022 Nissan Frontier is a versatile truck – and I don’t mean just in terms of 4×4 capability and cargo organization (although it is versatile in that sense), but more so in its styling. On the one hand, Hollywood could jump on the 2022 Frontier, especially with that front end. It’s a Judge Dredd rolling through a Mega-City One kind of truck or something that transports the Jaeger pilots to their Mechas in the next installment of Pacific Rim.

QOTD: Should Design Be Consistent Across Brands?

Let me start this out with an auto-writer pet peeve of mine: I hate the phrase “design language.” I have since I started working in automotive media in 2007. I am not sure why — it’s probably just too much PR/corporate speak for me. I’ve banned that phrase from this site via our internal style […] The post QOTD: Should Design Be Consistent Across Brands? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2022’s Triumph Street Scrambler Is Getting a “Sandstorm” Edition

Britain’s Favorite Scrambler Meets the Desert According to Rideapart, the US EPA had some certification documents submitted by Triumph that hint at a “Sandstorm” version of the Street Scrambler 900 that could be on its way for the 2022 model year.  When looking into Triumph’s recent track record, we can see in 2020 they named two Tiger 1200 models “Desert” and “Alpine”. The Alpine edition obviously featured a brilliant white paint job, and the Desert edition came with a “Sandstorm” paint scheme...

2021 Buick Envision Overview: New Features, Luxury Trim Levels, Pricing Info & More

Forget what you know about the Buick Envision. The 2021 Buick Envision is a two-row, five-passenger SUV with almost nothing in common with its predecessors except its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. Engineers have completely rethought and reconfigured the Envision, certainly since its 2016 U.S. debut. When the Chinese-built, GM-name-plated Envision debuted in the U.S. that year, it was a spunky but small crossover that competed with the Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V. Buick’s 2021 Envision takes d...

HonDeath: An insane CL350 with 100 horsepower on tap

In stock form , the Honda CL350 is a mild-mannered street scrambler with 33 horsepower and oodles of vintage charm. The kind of bike you meet the nicest people on. This CL350, however, is a very different beast. The clue is in the name—HonDeath—and the only figure you’re likely to meet while riding it is your maker. Because a two-stroke Yamaha Banshee ATV motor powers it, bumped up to 472cc and pumping out roughly a hundred horsepower. This truly unhinged Honda cafe racer comes from Andrew ...

The $208,000 Audi R8 is a stellar supercar, but its best feature is having a dedicated holder for your keys

The 2020 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe Quattro. Kristen Lee Because most car keys are key fobs now, you can't just put them in the ignition anymore.
