2018 Extended-Length Lincoln Navigator: When Huge Isn’t Big Enough

3 hours agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

In the neo-Edwardian age we are all descending into, Daisy Buchanan 2.0 will probably be driving a 2018 Extended-Length Lincoln Navigator when she runs over a poor person. Calling this thing “big” is like calling the USS Shenandoah “big.” It greatly downplays its magnitude. Even though Lincoln touts the size of their new Extended-Length Lincoln […]

Faurecia: The Automotive “Make Tank”

2 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s a calm summer day in Holland, Michigan, a thirty some thousand people city in the state’s western region. A near 200 miles from Detroit, Holland is not a traditional automotive headquarters. Driving through town, past the tulip beds or one of the many churches, there are few if any clues Holland is really at […]

Restomods: Best of Both Worlds

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s an age-old car question – are you a classic or a modern car lover? In recent years, we’ve seen people ask “why not both” through a new trend: resto-modding. While there is no clear-cut definition, a restomod vehicle is one that has been externally restored to original, or close to the original appearance, yet […]

2018 McLaren 570S Spider: A Convertible But Not Really

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

McLaren calls their new 570S Spider “a convertible without compromise.” And sure, that’s just what you’d expect them to say, but convertibles inherently have many engineering compromises. That’s not to say the 570S is not a good car. It is. It is a very good car indeed. Besides a drop top, what does the McLaren […]

Nissan Expands EV Charging Network With New Stations

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Ah, good news. One of the main problems with EVs, besides the energy density of batteries, is charging when you’re out and about. Finding electricity is easy, but finding higher voltage electricity, which will charge your car faster, is harder. The only real answer seems to be adding dedicated high voltage “fast charging stations” onto […]

6 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Jaguar, along with corporate sibling Land Rover, have been doing the factory refurbished thing for a while now. They join the growing trend of auto manufacturers keeping the original flame burning for those who desire, or can afford, factory originality. Their latest press release is slugged as being from “Ryton-on-Dunsmore, UK” and believe me, it […]

2018 Hyundai Elantra Trim Levels Expand

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Hyundai has gone and messed with its popular Elantra for 2018, or at least tweaked one of the available option packages. That could be trouble – monkeying with the Elantra, pretty much Hyundai’s bread and butter car, might spell disaster – but have no fear, Hyundai is on top of the situation. Hyundai’s Elantra, now […]

2018 Ford F-150: Bad Ideas, Big Bets And Beer Can Jokes

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Ford Motor Company has, in recent times, put a strong emphasis on material composition. When I was selling Ford trucks seven, eight years ago, the high-strength steel frames were always a focal point. As sales consultants, we would often explain the frame’s benefits, touching on things like towing capability, payload capacity, and overall durability. At […]

Hyundai Kona: The SUV For City Folk

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Well, at least Hyundai is up front about what their new Kona SUV is built for. Right there in the title of their press release, the thing reads: “Kona: World Premiere Of An Urban SUV For Active Lifestyles.” Far too many SUVs are pitched with this farcical idea that you’re going to be driving your […]

2018 Honda Fit: Little But Kinda Big

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

The Honda Fit, besides having an adorably Japanese name (seriously, who would name a car that? The same society that would name one of their cars the Bongo Friendly, I suppose) aims to be nearly all things to a certain slice of the population pie. The Fit wants to be small enough for the urban […]

Is Lincoln The Watered Down Cadillac?

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Lincoln is, by this point in its life, a very strange company. At one time, they were the ride of choice for Presidents and rockstars and mobsters. The Kennedys, Pete Townsend, and the Corleones all had a thing for Lincolns. They were credibly going toe-to-toe with Cadillac for the pinnacle of huge American luxury cars […]
