2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon: The 4X4 Benchmark

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Jeep. One word without any need of definition. Jeep basically invented what is today thought of as the Sport Utility Vehicle. What started off during World War II as a light troop and ammo carrier, later turned into the benchmark standard of what “off-road capable” means. With its latest Wrangler Rubicon Recon, Jeep aims to […]

2018 Subaru Legacy To Debut In Chicago

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s better to call the “new” 2018 Subaru Legacy “refreshed,” because that’s what it is. A little nip here. A little tuck there. A trip to the beauty parlor and a little debutante ball action, and here she is, the “new” 2018 Subaru Legacy. The thumbnail sketch of what’s new breaks down like this: The […]

Letter From The UK: Living Off The Map

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Here in the United Kingdom, we have a great and venerable institution known as the Ordnance Survey. It is the national mapping agency for Great Britain and is one of the world’s largest producers of maps. We’ve no need for a Lewis or a Clark here; our maps are so detailed it is said that […]

Range Rover Goes Icon With Its Icon

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

A number of high-end car companies have been in the restoration business for a while now. For example, Ferrari with their Classiche Certified program will take in old cars made in Maranello, and restore them to showroom condition. Range Rover has jumped into this game, with a factory restored 1978 three-door Range Rover Classic that […]

Automoblog Book Garage: Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

One of the most inspiring things about Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is what appears at the beginning. Usually, I skip over the introductory pages of books; I want to get to the “good stuff” and absorb the knowledge within. In my haste, I usually miss things like what struck me when I first opened this book. Three […]

Chevrolet Owners Record Massive Data Usage In 2016

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

A top attribute of any vehicle today is connectivity. The ability for our automobile to seamlessly integrate our smartphones in the name of infotainment is becoming the order of the day. Sometimes, and especially for old school car enthusiasts, the connectivity bug may be nothing more than an annoying buzz, but Chevrolet owners tell a […]

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon: Hauling More Than Your Family

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Mercedes says their new AMG E63 S Wagon is sportiness meets space and intelligence. Sure, fine. Spin it however you want. All I know is that when I saw this beast puts out over 600 horsepower, all I could think of was, “gas pedal, meet my right foot.” Station wagons in America are a forgotten […]

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Soft Top Arrives

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

The answer, as another website once said, is always Miata. And who am I to disagree with that? There are few things a gearhead can ask of a car that a Miata, from any of the now four generations, cannot do. Look, I’ll get my prejudices out of the way right here at the top: […]

Shipments of the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor are headed across the ocean to China. It’s the first time an F-Series truck built in the United States has been officially exported to China.

2018 BMW 4 Series: Performance Poetics

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

The BMW 4 Series hopes to split the difference between the smaller, more agile and sporty 3 Series, and the more roomy, more luxury immersed 5 Series. The 2018 BMW 4 Series arrives with better chassis tuning and a few other tweaks for the new year. As I wrote this, I was about 9 hours in to this year’s Daytona […]

Honda Serving Up Food For Super Bowl Weekend

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

To my mind, there are two kinds of Super Bowl ads. There are the kind that define your product and make a lasting impact (e.g. Apple’s 1984 Macintosh ad), and then there are the ads that are so bizarre you lose 87% of the viewers and no one even knows what your product is (e.g. […]

Recently, we drove the 2017 Ford Escape SE […]

2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder: Tony Stark, Your New Car Is Ready

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Audi’s R8, while not a benchmark, was a shot across the bow of a lot of other supercar makers. It offered a lot of tech, style, and performance for, relatively speaking here, not much cash. Now there’s a new R8 out there, and Audi has just shown off the drop-top Spyder variant. I liked the […]

In Search Of Rosie: The Porsche 718 Cayman

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

England is not like California. In England rain is a tradition. We look to the skies and wonder what that bright orb is above our heads. Eventually we recall dim memories of something called the sun. A couple of weeks ago, a little sun entered my life in the form of the latest version of […]

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

In today’s automotive world, consumers have more options than ever when it comes to car care and parts for performance and optimization. While parts from Original Equipment Manufacturers remain available for purists, aftermarket auto parts have seen a significant rise in popularity over the last several years, particularly with the mass availability from online retailers.

The 2017 Ford GT is the fastest production vehicle the blue oval has ever produced. At the heart of the GT is Ford’s most powerful EcoBoost yet, and an advanced, active suspension system. A precise power-to-weight formula is also ingrained through the car. The combination propels the 2017 Ford GT to a top speed of 216 […]

2017 Kia Niro: A lot To Like, Especially Price

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Kia, the South Korean company that keeps churning out a brand new vehicle every 8 hours or so, just rolled out another debut model: The all-new Kia Niro. That’s Niro, with an ‘i,’ not with an ‘e.’ That’s the crazy Roman emperor dude or that unneeded antagonist from that Star Trek re-boot movie. This is […]

MINI John Cooper Works Countryman Goes Maximum

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

How many modifiers can a company add to a product? In this case, it seems two, and big ones at that. It’s not just a MINI (the new ones are all caps) it’s a MINI John Cooper Works. It’s not just a MINI John Cooper Works, it’s a MINI John Cooper Works Countryman. So what […]

Letter From The UK: Frank James’ Gun

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

At the time of writing this, Automoblog’s esteemed Managing Editor, Carl Anthony, was in the air taking in the latest car shows for our benefit. It’s a tough job but somebody has to do it. He has to travel great distances that we here in the comparatively tiny British Isles cannot comprehend. As the crow flies, […]
