    Is Ford Already Preparing for a World Without Drivers?

    Earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show, Ford had much more to talk about than just cars. They’re trying to brand themselves as a mobility company — that’s going to include dabbling in ride sharing, public transportation, autonomous cars, and even bicycles. That’s in preparation for the future Ford is anticipating — one in […]

    Volvo Has Made the Most Luxurious Baby Car Seat Ever

    Ever since Volvo Cars was purchased by the China-owned Zhejiang Geely group from Ford, they’ve put a much heavier emphasis on luxury. That emphasis was on full display when they announced the XC90 Excellence luxury SUV last year, a vehicle built for chauffeurs. It was a treat for anyone in the backseat (which only has […]

    2017 Kia Sportage Drive Impressions

    For better or worse, things are on the upswing for gas guzzlers thanks to the rapid decline in the price of oil. While the age of Hummers and massive SUVs might not ever come back, it’s a good time for the smaller CUVs — a utility vehicle built on a car frame. Enter the Kia […]

    2016 Chevrolet Volt Review

    The Chevrolet Volt has blazed its own trail in the hybrid market. Instead of using a hybrid engine that uses gas power at higher speeds or when more torque is needed, the Volt is capable of running solely on electric power.

    2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Review

    New Yorkers don’t drive. We will gripe about the inefficiency of subways, buses, and trains, but under no circumstance do we drive — unless we have to travel to Connecticut with two friends, a dog, an amplifier, a large box of assorted junk, and a full sized desk. With that much baggage to drop off, […]

    2017 Hyundai Elantra First Impressions

    Nominally Hyundai’s compact sedan, the Elantra is actually large enough to be considered a midsize. Doesn’t look like that has much impact on price, though — among compact competitors, the 2017 Elantra is one of the cheapest options on the market. It keeps saving you money after you start driving, too, with a focus on […]

    2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

    When it’s time to dive into CES every year, there are some things we come to expect and accept. One of those things is CES traffic, which takes normally bad traffic on and near the Las Vegas Strip and mutates it into something that (might) even make Los Angeles wince. What we’re saying is, if […]

    Escort MAX 360 Radar Detector Review

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Escort Radar + Laser Detectors for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Radars are like tasers — something you never really think of getting until something happens that makes you want one, like a speeding ticket at a speed trap. The Radar Escort 360 is a top-notch […]

    The Chevy Malibu has been overhauled for 2016. This time around it’s lighter, yet larger, more fuel efficient, and safer than ever. It’s also got Apple CarPlay, which is quite frankly awesome.

    Road Tripping in the 2015 Toyota Sienna

    A recent trip to Philadelphia with five friends convinced me that maybe there’s something to this whole minivan phenomenon that I’ve been missing out on. Not only did six adults comfortably fit inside the 2015 Toyota Sienna, there was more than enough room for our gear. We started our journey in New York City, where […]

    Yeah, I get that there are a lot of amazing technologies at play in Tesla’s new autopilot feature, but come on — a world where we don’t have to be responsible for parallel parking? Imagine the time it would save those of us lacking in depth perception! It’s a brave new world of autonomous cars, […]

    Last night at Tesla’s Fremont production facility in California, CEO Elon Musk fully detailed the Model X, the long-awaited all-electric luxury crossover utility vehicle.

    Verizon’s Hum Transforms a Dumb Car into a Smart Car

    We know so much more about our bodies with fitness trackers than we know about our cars these days (unless you have a late model car with all the latest connected car features). For most people, we have to rely on our mechanic to tell us what needs fixing, and hope our phone has cellular […]

    It’s the Worst Week Ever for Jeep as They Recall 1.5 Million Vehicles

    The most daunting hurdle connected car technology faces isn’t technical — it’s trust. A recent Fiat Chrysler recall affecting over one million vehicles won’t help with that. Late last week, Fiat Chrysler announced the voluntary safety recall after security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek demonstrated the ability to remotely hack a Jeep Cherokee, allowing […]

    Hyundai Sonata 2015 Review

    The Hyundai Sonata is quickly becoming the go-to midsize car for many drivers, currently enjoying the same popularity that the Ford Taurus and Toyota Camry enjoyed for many, many years.
