2020 Subaru Legacy: New Platform, New Tech, New Everything

The 2020 Subaru Legacy ushers in the sedan’s seventh generation. A new Touring trim will feature genuine Nappa leather, a first for Subaru. The 2020 Legacy has a stronger, more rigid platform versus the 2019 model.  You can say this for Subaru: their timing is perfect. America just suffered through another polar vortex. The Midwest was turned into a beef locker and the Pacific Northwest got hit with the worst snowstorm in 70 years. But Subaru knew all this when they rolled out a new model at ...

Review: 2019 VW Jetta

It’s no small secret that Americans and Europeans have their differences, and one needn’t look any further to illustrate that point than to look at what kind of cars we like to drive. The 1970’s fuel crisis made a great argument for the hatchback-the idea being to get the maximum amount of room possible for people and cargo on a relatively small footprint. VW’s Golf was a raging success and proved the formula worked, and it was what a lot of people wanted. Well, almost everyone. For whateve...

China's $9,000 Electric Pickup Truck is Coming to the U.S.

Pickup trucks are big business in the U.S. Never mind annual statistics, which can be mind-numbing; consider that 6,500 brand-new pickup trucks are sold in America every day. The math shows that Ford sells a pickup truck about every 30 seconds, while GM and Dodge each average roughly one pickup truck sale per minute. (Toyota and Nissan lag behind but are still significant players, together moving about 500 trucks per day.)Is there room for another competitor in this space? China-based Kaiyun ...

BAJA HAHA. Moto Adonis’ Mad BMW R1100 Enduro Racer

Written by Andrew Jones What do you get when you take a big serve of America’s world-class automotive obsession and crossbreed it liberally with the Mexican tradition of going loco and not giving a damn? Why, you get Baja – that’s what. Mother of countless cool off-road trends, the Baja 1000 was founded in 1967 by American florist Ed Pearlman and it has gone on to tickle the fancy of bike, car, truck, ATV and buggy fans alike. And it’s not just the Yanks that worship at this Temple of Sands. ...

“The Great Unknowns” are Revealed in Kia Motors’ Super Bowl Ad Created by David&Goliath

“We are not famous,” a young boy states in the opening frame of ’ 2019 Super Bowl commercial. “There are no stars in a sidewalk for us. No statues in our honor. We’re just a small Georgia town of complete unknowns.”For Kia’s 10th consecutive appearance in the Big Game, the auto brand known for its challenger spirit took an unconventional approach. This year, Kia didn’t use a celebrity for its Super Bowl spot. This year, Kia began a movement to honor The Great Unknowns: The hard-working people o...

What’s the Deal With Jerry Seinfeld Being Accused of Selling Fake Porsches?

In addition to being one of America’s most-famous comedians, Jerry Seinfeld also happens to be a car snob of the highest order. His collection of vintage automobiles is so vast that he got the itch to sell a large portion a few years ago.

The long slog that is January provided a mixed bag of sales results for America’s automakers, with some enjoying the fruits of their new products while others stared down the barrel of red ink as they tried to kick their fleet habit.

Does Your Favorite Football Team Have A Matching Vehicle?

Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta will host Super Bowl LIII this weekend. An ambitious Los Angeles Rams team will face the mighty New England Patriots, a contest even super computers are analyzing. With football fever in the air, the staff at All-Fit Automotive sought to find vehicles for each NFL team. Some were rather easy, like the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars, but others required a little more digging. “Some of the cars I’d never heard of before,” admits A.J. Dudon, CEO of All-Fit ...

Ace of Base: 2019 Dodge Durango SXT RWD

America. It’s generally thought of as the country where everything is bigger and customers get a lot more for a lot less.

Porsche Taycan owners will get three years free charging at hundreds of Electrify America stations

Owners of the upcoming Porsche Taycan will get three years of free charging at hundreds of Electrify America public stations that will blanket the U.S. in the coming months. And in many cases, that will include access to DC fast chargers that will allow the Taycan, which is designed to have an 800 volt battery that can take a 350 kW charge, to get 60 miles of range in just four minutes. That charging speed blows away competitor Tesla, which has set up its own vast network of fast chargers cal...

America’s Subcompact Car Market Is Now Just Half the Size It Was Three Years Ago, and It’s Falling Fast

America’s demand for subcompact cars tumbled 26 percent in 2018, yet another result that points to the eventual demise of all but a few B-segment cars. 2018’s sharp drop – equal to roughly 94,000 fewer sales in the core eight-car subcompact category – follows an equally harsh decline in 2017, when the segment lost more […] The post America’s Subcompact Car Market Is Now Just Half the Size It Was Three Years Ago, and It’s Falling Fast appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

America's most honest used car salesman explains AS-IS

Cash Cars in Kansas City will take very little cash for very crappy vehicles. They are sold AS-IS, and yet Desmound Logan here must still explain to customers that when you pay $3,000 for a Tahoe, you can take it on an extended test drive but you are not getting a warrantee. "When you come to us, we are your last motherfuckin resort," says Logan. In the following video, Logan presents a Cash Cars KC "You figure out what's wrong with it" special. NSFW language throughout, y'all.

GULF COURSE. Kott Motorcycle’s Textbook Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Written by Andrew Jones While we’d argue that the Gulf Oil Fords and Porsches from the ’60s and ’70s are amongst the most beautiful racing machines ever made, it’s with a fair amount of trepidation that we click on bike submissions that have anything to do with the brand. The reason? My God, it’s been done to death. It’s been done to death, buried, dug up at midnight and then done some more. But when California’s Dustin Kott dared to have a go on a Honda CB550, he did it with the subtlety and...

Don’t worry, it isn’t a long list. You won’t be here all day. While the industry coasted to a surprising, yet slight, year-over-year volume increase in 2018, automakers can’t thank America’s desire for traditional passenger cars for eking out a win.

Bricklin: The Canadian car that Canadians couldn't buy

In the 1970s, New Brunswick famously made the sporty-looking, plastic-bodied Bricklin, the brainchild of the man who introduced Subaru to America (and would later bring over the Yugo as well). But things didn't go well, and the province eventually lost $23 million on the deal. Find out more in my "Rearview Mirror" column at the National Post. [Author: Jil McIntosh]
