2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring Review – Speaking Softly

The term “soft roader” is often thrown around as a pejorative aimed at crossovers, particularly ones that have some limited off-road ability but don’t look particularly rugged and/or are just not likely to be used for anything other than family-hauling duty. Hear me out for a sec, though: What if it’s not OK for a […] The post 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring Review – Speaking Softly appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Tundra Versus the F-150 – What’s Wrong with Toyota?

Can the Toyota Tundra go toe-to-toe with the Ford F-150, and does it make sense to try? The F-150 is the most popular vehicle in the U.S., despite a 12 percent drop in sales. Ford still managed to sell 787, 422 F-150s in 2020. Toyota sold a little over 109,000 Tundras in 2020, down two […] The post Tundra Versus the F-150 – What’s Wrong with Toyota? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Lexus LC Convertible Review – Open It Up In Style

What if I told you one of the best old-school muscle-car convertible experiences available today came not from a Detroit 2.5 automaker but Lexus? That may sound crazy, but it’s true.

QOTD: Is the 2021 Rolls-Royce-Based Overdose Actually Overkill?

A Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith is already a limited production vehicle. German tuner Novitec, and its Spofec division, are modifying three of these cars for worldwide distribution.

The automotive press, ourselves included, has been hard on Cadillac in recent years. But the brand is making strides back to respectability. Unfortunately, the journey is long and incomplete.

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer AWD LT Review – Pleasant Surprise

The reemergence of the Trailblazer name in the Chevrolet lineup seemed like a cynical nostalgia ploy at first. Trailblazer a cute ‘ute?
