2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road Review: Great for Playing in the Mud!

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road In Our Opinion: The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is the newest member of the automaker's TRD family. While the off-road capability is a given, we were taken back by how comfortable this RAV4 is on dry pavement. It was a pleasant surprise to discover this off-road rig was still pretty good in the city. Although we are not sold on the exterior styling, the interior is sharp and that makes up for it.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA: Quick but Detailed Walk Around This Sleek SUV

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA is certainly a stylish little guy. He’s the latest in what has been a busy year for Mercedes-Benz when it comes to their SUV and crossover lineup. We saw the new GLB roll into town, a compact city cruiser with a third row (it even has an AMG variant because why not). From there, Mercedes-Benz released the new midsize GLC, followed by the three-row GLE (we like the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe). After that, the larger GLS entered the fold with a whopping 500-plus lb-ft...

Miami Dolphins trades with Detroit Lions were not very good

The Miami Dolphins made three trades with the Detroit Lions that should not have made. Sometimes when you swing for the fence, you strike out and for the Miami Dolphins, there were three strikes in trades with the Lions. In 2007, the Dolphi

NASA astronaut Leland Melvin told Bill Nye that a police officer came close to ending his career before it even started

Leland Melvin — a Black astronaut, engineer, and NFL football player — recently hosted NASA TV's coverage of the first crewed rocket launch by SpaceX on May 30. Before the launch, Melvin juxtaposed the mission with the police killing of George Floyd. "America, let's get our crap together, this is unsatisfactory. We gotta stop this," he said. Bill Nye later interviewed Melvin after the launch about his life, career, and struggles with racism. Melvin revealed that, as a new high-school graduate,...

2020 Hyundai Sonata Review: Near Perfect Sedan For Everyday Life

2020 Hyundai Sonata In Our Opinion: The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is completely redesigned and in a big way. If midsize sedans were having a party, the room would turn and look once the 2020 Sonata came in. Although lacking a few things, it's not enough to justify skipping outright. We anticipate many buyers (especially loyal Hyundai ones) will be pleased with the 2020 Sonata. Exterior Styling 80 Interior Layout 85 Driving Dynamics 92 Safety & Tech Features 87 ...

The same people who put Trump in office run the NFL. No wonder it's not diverse

Offering draft pick incentives for hiring minority coaches won’t solve the NFL’s diversity problem any more than the Rooney Rule when both fail to address the root causesWhen the NFL first was made to formally address the embarrassing lack of diversity in its coaching and front-office ranks back in the early aughts, a scant three of the league’s 32 teams were helmed by minority head coaches. Seventeen years since the introduction of the Rooney Rule, which requires all clubs to interview at least...

2020 Genesis G90 In Our Opinion: Our contemporaries in the automotive press have praised the Genesis G90, and we feel compelled to join them in that cadence.

Lions QB Stafford ignored trade rumors

Matthew Stafford ignored trade rumors prior to the NFL draft because the Detroit Lions' franchise quarterback didn't hear them. Three kids under the age of 5 and a pregnant wife while on stay-at-home orders in Georgia took all the attention the 32-year-old could muster. Then his wife, Kelly, caught wind of the reports the Lions wanted Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and suddenly everyone was listening.

2020 VW Tiguan Review: Not Our Cup of Tea & Here’s Why

2020 VW Tiguan In Our Opinion: Our colleagues and contemporaries in the automotive press hold the 2020 VW Tiguan in higher esteem than we do. We wouldn't say the Tiguan is a dud - it's not - but for whatever reason, it just didn't sit right with us. Granted, we had a trim level with 20-inch wheels, so maybe that was to blame for the lackluster ride? After a week-long drive, and considering the number of other choices on the market, we recommend shopping around before buying a Tiguan. ...
