How the cheapest Tesla Model 3 at $40,000 matches up against a loaded $45,000 Nissan Leaf. (TSLA)

I've driven the Tesla Model 3 in several different versions. I've also sampled an updated version of the Nissan Leaf. The Leaf has been in the electric-vehicle market for longer, but the Model 3 is among the best cars I've ever driven.  Last year, I tested a new, longer-range version of the Leaf: the Leaf SL Plus.  You can buy the Model 3 and the Leaf Plus for around $40,000 (the mid-range Leaf SV Plus starts at $39,750). The Tesla Model 3 is better, but the Leaf Plus has a lot going for it. V...

This $44,000 Chevy Bolt has been upgraded to 260 miles of range — here's why that means it's still a Tesla rival (GM)

The 2020 Chevy Bolt has been updated to deliver 259 miles of range per charge, an improvement on the 240 miles that we enjoyed back in 2017 when we first tested the EV. Otherwise, the Bolt isn't much changed, apart from getting a 66-kilowatt-hour battery pack, larger than the 60 kWh pack from the previous iteration. The Bolt now competes against a more crowded field of contenders, including the Tesla Model 3, but this zippy subcompact continues to be charming, versatile, and affordable. I call...

Nissan Ariya Debut Coming In July; CEO (Again) Promises to Right the Ship

I’m your man, Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida told shareholders at an annual meeting Monday, promising to take a pay cut while firming up the fiscal foundations of an automaker that was floundering even before the pandemic hit. Nissan rolled out a very different kind of four-year plan in late May. Cost-cutting and consolidation is the […] The post Nissan Ariya Debut Coming In July; CEO (Again) Promises to Right the Ship appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster exhibits so much power and style that its $210,000 price tag is actually a bargain

I tested a 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster, a limited-run drop-top that topped out at $210,290 after many thousands in extras. The Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster belongs to a select club of two-seat, front-engine cars that combine luxury with track-ready performance cred. The price tag might seem stratospheric, but Mercedes-AMG has so thoroughly crammed this machine with staggering power and premium appointments that it represents a bargain.

Here's how the all-new Ford F-150 pickup truck could stack up against the Tesla Cybertruck (TSLA, F)

Ford revealed its all-new, 2021 F-150 pickup truck last week, and it's packed with technology. The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the US for 43 straight years. The Tesla Cybertruck was unveiled last year and immediately captivated and polarized opinion with a radical, futuristic design. The F-150 hits the market later this year, while the Cybertruck won't start deliveries until late next year. Ford hasn't yet detailed pricing, but the top-spec F-150 and the best-equipped Cybertruck...

I drive over 50 cars, trucks, and SUVs every year. Here are some recent features I didn't like.

2020 Nissan Altima Review – Happy in the Middle

The Nissan Altima was once in the mix with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord in the mid-size sedan conversation. That’s no longer the case, and hasn’t been for some time.

2021 Nissan Rogue: Complete Overview of This Newly Redesigned Crossover

The 2021 Nissan Rogue has some big shoes to fill. Nissan sold 412,110 units of the outgoing second-generation Rogue in 2018. Although Nissan sold only 350,447 units (representing a 15 percent drop) in 2019, the message is clear: The Rogue is Nissan’s most popular vehicle in North America, so the third-generation model better be good. “The all-new Rogue was purposefully designed to meet all the needs of today’s young families,” said Mike Colleran, Senior Vice President, Nissan U.S. Marketing a...

The Great Compression: The coronavirus pandemic could drive a long-overdue consolidation of the global auto industry (GM, F, FCAU, TSLA, RACE)

The coronavirus pandemic brought about the previously unthinkable in the auto industry: a near total global shutdown of production. Throughout the industry, a wide-ranging discussion has developed about what the post-COVID-19 car world could look like. The industry has long suffered from excessive manufacturing capacity and what the late Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne trenchantly decried as an addiction to capital. Post-COVID, the auto industry could undergo a massive consolidation, with ...

I pitted the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, RAM 1500, Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan in a battle of full-size pickups. Here's how they ranked. (GM, F, FCAU)

I've driven and reviewed all five of the full-size pickup trucks that dominate yearly new-vehicle sales in the US. After another big year in 2019 for pickups, I decided to compare the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado, the RAM 1500, the Toyota Tundra, and the Nissan Titan. The global coronavirus pandemic has hurt auto sales, but in the US, pickup trucks have continued to attract customers. I reviewed a variety of trim levels and price points, as well as option packages and engines, so this compa...

Over the past six years, I've driven dozens of high-performance cars that also embody great design.
