  • This last-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 does things that SUVs just shouldn't be able to do, like win drag races against tuned Nissan GT-R and BMW M3 coupes. Granted, the owner isn't coming into this fight with a stock Jeep - far from it. In addition to twin turbos whistling away, he says the engine is a 449-cubic-inch V8, which is nearly 7.4 liters of displacement. As it runs here, the driver claims that the turbos are pumping out around 14 psi of boost to give an estimated 840...

  • We drive the 2015 Nissan Murano We found plenty to like in the 2015 Nissan Murano after taking it for a spin out on the West Coast, starting with its bold new style. There aren't any major drivetrain updates over the previous generation, but the powerful V6 engine and CVT transmission that powers either the front or all four wheels is still a fine performer. Read all about it in our First Drive report. Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid to be fast and efficient When the Volvo...

  • With 22 months of record Leaf sales under its zero-emission belt, Nissan has started two big ad campaigns for the battery-powered Leaf. On TV, there's the Kick Gas campaign (it's a popular name) and on social media, Nissan is promoting the EV as the "world's cleanest car" (it's a paint thing). We don't know how much the paint prank is costing, but we do have some estimated numbers for the TV ads.
    Nissan has spent over $30 million on TV...

  • We drive the 2015 Chevy Trax cute 'ute There's an interesting mix of small crossover hatchbacks mixing it up anew on American roads these days, and into the fray jumps Chevrolet with its new 2015 Trax. Does this slightly homely competitor from Chevy have what it takes to compete with the Kia Soul, Nissan Juke and Subaru XV Crosstrek, not to mention upcoming models from Honda and Mazda?

  • Toyota's confirmation comes on the heels of General Motors' successful launch of its own midsize pickups. The next generation of the Toyota Tacoma pickup truck will be revealed in January at the Detroit Auto Show, a top executive confirmed Thursday. Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations for Toyota, offered no other details, but the new version of the pickup is expected to have significant upgrades compared with the aging...

  • Consumer Reports is crunching the numbers from its annual owner-satisfaction survey, and part of that process is finding out how attached drivers are to their cars. CR simply asks readers of models up to three years old if they would buy the same vehicle again in light of their entire ownership experience, and tallies the results. After looking at the responses for about 350,000 vehicles, it turns out that people really love a certain California-built, electrically powered luxury sedan. That's...

  • Australian racing fans are staring down the end of an era as news breaks that Ford will no longer participate in the V8 Supercars series. Although the official announcement has yet to be made, the decision - as reported widely in the automotive press Down Under and in global motorsport publications - indicates that the Blue Oval automaker has already confirmed its intentions to its shareholders early on Monday to shut down its factory effort in the popular tin-top series at the end of next...

  • Just a few years ago, Holden and Ford were the only manufacturers competing in Australia's V8 Supercars series. But those days were left long ago in a cloud of smoke on the track, and are only disappearing even further in the rearview mirror as the latest intel suggests Lexus could be ready to enter the series as well. Speaking with CarAdvice.com.au at the local launch of the RC coupe, Lexus Australia chief Sean Hanley revealed that his office approached the race organizers to hold "very high-...

  • We Say Goodbye To Today's Cadillac CTS-V The raucous Cadillac CTS-V lineup we've come to know and love is drifting off into the sunset. There's a new one on the horizon, but it probably won't be quite the same animal that today's sedan, coupe and wagon are. We give the second-gen V a heroic sendoff - an Irish Wake, if you will - at Austin's phenomenal Circuit of the Americas. Join us as we shed a few tears and more than a little rubber. Translogic Drives Fuel Cell Cars of...

  • Need a cargo van, but nothing too big? Fiat Chrysler Automobiles could have the answer in the form of its new Ram ProMaster City. Essentially a domesticated version of the Fiat Doblo, the ProMaster City joins the Ram family as the baby brother to the larger ProMaster (née Fiat Ducato). But if you've been wondering how much one will set you back, Auburn Hills has now announced pricing. The 2015 Ram ProMaster City Tradesman Cargo starts things off with a $23,130 MSRP, plus a $995...
