GM Teases Part of Its EV Plans at CES

The Consumer Electronics Show, typically held in Las Vegas in January, is virtual this year. Because of the coronavirus, as I am sure you’d expect.

2022 Subaru BRZ Makes Evolutionary Changes, Gets a Power Bump

The new 2022 Subaru BRZ is here, and it’s …. not all that different. Retaining its overall shape, the car gets updated looks, what Subaru claims is better handling (as always, have to wait until we drive it to verify), new interior duds, a 50-percent increase in torsional stiffness, and more powah.

2022 Infiniti QX55: Channeling the Spirit of the FX

The flood of new-car debuts continues unabated. Why are you seeing so much news this week? Because the LA Auto Show was supposed to have been right around this time, but as with everything else, COVID canceled it.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Yes, It Has a Hemi

Truck wars. Pony-car/muscle-car wars. Sports-car wars. Now, we have off-road wars. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a not-so-subtle way for Jeep to lob a grenade, metaphorically speaking, at Ford. It was a concept, but there was almost no chance it wouldn’t be built, and so here it is for real, as a Jeep […] The post 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Yes, It Has a Hemi appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2022 Honda Civic Will Debut on Twitch

I’ve long resisted being the kind of person who could have The Simpsons “old man yells at cloud” jpeg thrown at me. Figuratively speaking, of course, since you can’t really throw a jpeg.

2021 Jaguar E-Pace Gets the Knife

The Jaguar E-Pace (which is not the electric one, that’s the I-Pace) gets a refresh for 2021. Yeah, that’s right. It’s another mild refresh story!

Report: Next Ford Raptor to be SuperCrew Only

Ford’s Raptor is one tough truck, and it has new competition, thanks to the Ram TRX. Not only that, but the F-150 on which it’s based is new for 2021.

As much as we try to cover the news without bias here at TTAC, it would untrue to say that those of us on staff don’t have certain vehicles we like more than others.

Do Your Civic Duty and Peep Your Eyes on What Might Be Honda’s Next Hatch

Renderings of the 11th-generation Honda Civic Hatchback have hit the forums, thanks to Honda patent filings, and the changes are minor but give the car a far milder look.

2021 Volkswagen Taos Gets New Version of the Jetta’s Turbo Four

We speculated before that the Volkswagen Taos would get an existing VW engine, likely the 1.4-liter turbo-four from the Jetta. We were close.
