2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L First Drive – The Three-Row for the Jeep Stan

Jeep has offered all sorts of different utility vehicles over the years – it’s sort of the brand’s thing – but it hasn’t recently offered a three-row crossover. The last one it sold was the Commander, which left the market a decade ago. I quite honestly forgot the Commander even existed – and I started […] The post 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L First Drive – The Three-Row for the Jeep Stan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder First Drive – Step, Not Leap, in the Right Direction

  The last-generation Nissan Pathfinder became the forgotten three-row crossover, in part because it went from a rugged-looking rig to a soft-roading crossover. Nissan is apparently quite well aware of why the Pathfinder moved to the back of mind for a lot of shoppers, and the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is meant to, if not be […] The post 2022 Nissan Pathfinder First Drive – Step, Not Leap, in the Right Direction appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Review: The $50,000 Toyota Supra's greatest triumph is making its owner feel like the coolest person around

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra. Alanis King The 2021 Toyota GR Supra starts at $43,090 for its entry-level model, the 255-horsepower Supra 2.0. The Supra 3.0, which ups the car to 382 horsepower, starts at $51,090. The 2.0 nails its most important feature: its stunning, poster-worthy looks. See more stories on Insider's business page.

Rental Review: The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4Motion, Days be Numbered

Today’s review is brought to you by water: Water! It’s moist. The other day when I handed over the keys to the Golf Sportwagen, my dealer’s service department loaned me this base model 2021 Tiguan S 4Motion. There’s no glass on the roof so it’s almost certain not to leak water, but what about its […] The post Rental Review: The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4Motion, Days be Numbered appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2022 Volkswagen Taos First Drive – Fitting Right In

Standing outside a building that typically hosts weddings in downtown Chelsea, Michigan, a fellow auto journalist and I chatted through our masks about how it’s getting harder and harder to write about crossovers, because so many of them are just in that happy middle – not particularly great, and certainly not bad. Add the 2022 […] The post 2022 Volkswagen Taos First Drive – Fitting Right In appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Land Rover Defender 110 SE Review – Charm Overcomes British Quirks

Like many folks, I was excited to hear that Land Rover was resurrecting the Defender nameplate. I grew up admiring the boxy go-anywhere Defenders of days gone by, and I was hoping Jaguar Land Rover could recreate that magic. Imagine my consternation when instead the brand came up with an SUV that seemed to be […] The post 2020 Land Rover Defender 110 SE Review – Charm Overcomes British Quirks appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 Review – A Sports Car For All Occasions

As the 911 has continued to expand in size and skillset over recent years, the line between its sporting and grand touring intentions has started to blur. Versatility is certainly a virtue for any road-going performance vehicle, but for those looking for a dyed-in-the-wool sportscar, the platform shared between the Boxster and Cayman has always […] The post 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 Review – A Sports Car For All Occasions appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Kia K5 EX Review – Awkward Name, Good Car

I am not, in general, one to fret too much when an automaker messes with car nomenclature. Even if, in the case of the formerly named Kia Optima, the brand switches to an alphanumeric structure. That’s not to say I never get upset – I was pretty harsh on Infiniti when it switched to its […] The post 2021 Kia K5 EX Review – Awkward Name, Good Car appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Subaru WRX STI Review – Aging Yet Still Fun

Most people slow down a bit, in terms of being the life of the party, as they approach their dotage. Others keep rocking straight into the retirement home. Count the Subaru WRX STI among that latter group.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek Limited Review – New Engine, Fresh Face, Familiar Utility

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek isn’t changed much, and that’s almost certainly a good thing for Subie. After all, the Crosstrek, like other Subaru products, is popular with the brand faithful because of its utility abilities. So it behooves Subaru not to screw with it too much. That said, no automaker wants to hear that a […] The post 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Limited Review – New Engine, Fresh Face, Familiar Utility appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve AWD Review – Getting It Right

Defining what makes a large luxury SUV “good” can be harder than it looks. Sure, some things are obvious – are the materials nice enough to justify the price? Is the ride comfortable? Are the seats nice and relaxing? Is NVH kept to a minimum? Is the features list long, with many items that are […] The post 2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve AWD Review – Getting It Right appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Review: The $69,000 Genesis G80 doesn't just epitomize luxury - it proves how far Hyundai's come

The Genesis G80 sedan. Alanis King In 2015, Hyundai launched Genesis, a spinoff luxury brand based loosely on the Hyundai Genesis sedan. That sedan became the Genesis G80, which has since undergone a full overhaul. Our $69,075 G80 loaner wasn't just a standout car - it was a reminder of how far Hyundai has come. See more stories on Insider's business page. Much like every other vehicle from Hyundai's new luxury brand, Genesis, the 2021 G80 sedan almost intimidates me. It should...

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review – Affordable Supercar

I was cruising along Interstate 55 somewhere southwest of Chicago when I came upon a Mercedes SUV that was continually adjusting speed.

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road Review – Dressed for the Country, Fine in the City

If I told you a popular crossover that had good on-road manners got an off-road treatment, you’d probably think those manners would become a bit rougher around the edges. In the case of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, you’d be mostly wrong.

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.

TTAC Test Car Review Roundup: April 2021

There are pros and cons to living in Ohio while attempting to convince people that I’m a motoring journalist.

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.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Review – Baddest Mustang

2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody Review – Family Fun Time

Most large sedans exist to provide comfort and some level of luxury to their owners.

2020 Subaru Outback Onyx XT Edition – Keeping the Wagon Flame Going

  Subaru’s Outback has long been a standard-bearer for wagons. The addition of the Onyx Edition XT trim level for 2020 won’t change that.

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?

2022 Infiniti QX55 First Drive – Swing and a Miss

Infiniti wants so badly to show that it is back on the comeback trail. It wants to do that so badly that it made a big marketing and P.R. push around the QX55 crossover.
