2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X

Stories about unprecedented pickup truck sales growth aren’t fully founded in reality, as shown by 2016 Canadian sales stats. Only Ford’s F-150 saw a big improvement last year, with 145,409 units out the door compared to just 118,837 in calendar year 2015, but it suffered from production issues that year. Toyota’s Tundra grew its numbers too,…

2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Elite Road Test

The ultimate sleeper? Acura’s RLX Sport Hybrid might just fill the bill if you’re looking for a conservatively styled luxury sedan that flies under the radar like an executive jet.

The X4 was the obvious result of downsizing the already successful X6, the result…

2017 Chrysler 300 AWD Limited

Why does the Chrysler 300 outsell every mid- and full-size premium-branded luxury sedan as well as all the mainstream volume branded luxury four-doors in the U.S. and Canada? Because it’s been so very good for so very long that it’s developed a near cult-like following. Let’s be honest for a moment. Chrysler hasn’t done much particularly well…

2017 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

You’d think for a car available non-stop since 1965 there’d be more than six generations to the legendary Mustang’s credit, but Ford ran the first generation (the many iterations of which any genuine car enthusiast equally loves and lusts after) for eight years and made even better use of the 1979–1993 third-gen Fox bodied model. I don’t…

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring

When you go to Honda’s retail website and click on “Hybrids” you’re presented with the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid. That’s it. For the first automaker to ever produce a modern-day hybrid for consumer sale, not to mention a company that’s created two different versions of that dedicated Insight compact hatchback (1999–2006 and 2009–2014),…
