2019 BMW M2 Competition Review

The BMW M2 Competition is car meant for all sorts of impromptu or organized competitions, so pretty much all the changes made to its looks were made with the goal of improving performance. At the front, the most striking difference is the enlarged kidney grille and the new front skirt, both designed this way to aid the tweaked cooling system that lies beneath them. The iconic kidney grille comes in Shadow Line black, just as the side gills on the…

Going Coastal: GM Calls for Nationwide Zero-emission Vehicle Strategy

General Motors CEO Mary Barra took to the USA Today op-ed page Friday to advocate for a national zero-emission vehicle strategy — NZEV, for short. The automaker is calling for the ZEV program already in effect in California and nine other states to become law across the United States, thus making it mandatory for OEMs to field a certain number of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, or pay a price. Were the proposal to became the law of the land,…

2019 Dodge Journey Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2019 Dodge Journey has dropped entirely off our charts thanks to outdated style, safety, and technology. The 2019 Dodge Journey posts a low base price and a fairly large cabin for up to seven passengers—and that’s all. Woefully out of date in terms of safety, the 2019 Journey also doesn’t have much in the way of the latest features, and its styling has grown stale. At a 2.0 out of 10, it’s one of the lowest-rated vehicles on our…

2019 Ram 1500 eTorque First Drive

Although the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is already in dealers and in our own garage, something has been missing: the base V6-equipped variant. Ram is debuting the V6 models later this year in order to prioritize the release of the more popular V8 models. Nevertheless, the changes introduced with the V6-equipped Ram will undoubtedly boost its desirability. Revised V6 and TransmissionFor the skinny on the changes elsewhere to the Ram 1500 for 2019, head over to our First Drive. Let’s…

Global Survey Reveals Who We’d Prefer to Sacrifice on the Bumper of a Self-driving Car

In 2014, as publications and automakers began making greater noise about autonomous vehicles, researchers at MIT’s Media Lab issued some questions to the public. The institute’s Moral Machines experiment offered up a series of scenarios in which a self-driving car that has lost its brakes has to hit one of two targets, then asked the respondents which of the two targets they’d prefer to see the car hit. Four years later, the results are in. If our future vehicles are to drive…

2019 Kia Rio lineup sliced, diced, priced from $16,195

Shoppers looking at the pint-size 2019 Kia Rio won’t have as many choices to make this year. The 2019 Rio lineup shrinks from six to three trim levels, and last year’s standard manual transmission is no longer part of the picture. Priced from $16,195, including a mandatory $895 destination charge, the Rio LX costs about $1,400 more than it did last year—although that number shrinks to $310 when the formerly optional automatic transmission is factored in.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible Review: Win, Place, Show

Verdict 6.3 / 10 Convertibles are as synonymous with South Florida as elderly restaurant-goers are to the early-bird special. Thus, as a newly (re)minted South Floridian, I was eager to claim the keys to this 2018 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible to take in the sights, sun, and sounds of Miami Beach with nothing but the sky above my head. Although enthusiasts will turn their nose at the heavier Camaro Convertible and instead embrace the daintier coupe (with a curb weight…

New Alfa Romeo Stelvio 280 Q4 2018 review

This is the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio 280. Aside from the flagship Quadrifoglio, it’s the fastest version of the brand’s BMW X3 rival. But if the QF is a stretch too far, does this 280 make more sense than the diesel versions? Let’s start with the money. The Stelvio 280 is £1,400 pricier than the 207bhp diesel in the same Milano Edizione trim. On a four-year PCP with the same deposit, the petrol costs almost £20 more per month. The…
