Jeep Quicksand Concept: a Hemi in a Wrangler

Jeep Quicksand

The Jeep Wrangler is not a model that changes radically from one version or generation to another, at least when talking about the production model. That said, Jeep likes to periodically develop concepts that can sometimes be quite eccentric, for example the Jeep Quicksand Concept. Developed as part of the 51st edition of the Easter Jeep Safari, the Quicksand is part of a batch of five concepts specially developed for the event by Jeep. Every ...

QUICK CAR REVIEW: 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

2017 Toyota RAV4

I heard this saying just recently and I’ve no idea if it’s an actual thing but once I had an image in my mind, I quickly drew a parallel with the RAV4 Hybrid. For starters, the expression reads worse than it is so, well; don’t read into it too much. Our beloved (?) Queen is a person of some importance, much like the RAV4. Toyota was among the first OEMs to venture into the small ...

QUICK CAR REVIEW: 2017 Toyota Highlander SE AWD

2017 Toyota Highlander

I’m not exactly sure what’s going with Toyota transmissions these days but as I write these lines, I’m already on my next product from the Japanese giant and it’s major flaw is located between the engine and drive wheels. And it’s the same with this Highlander. Toyota’s 3-row large midsize CUV has been a safe bet since it hit the ground rolling just over 15 years ago and continues to be just that today. The ...

2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Three new reasons to like it

Chevrolet clearly waited too long before offering us a new product, but the good news is that consumers now get plenty of features, and the latest-generation Equinox is certainly competitive. Apart from the structural, aesthetic and conceptual ...

A 4-cylinder engine in a 3-row CUV? Is Mazda nuts?

2017 Mazda CX-9

Mazda is far from that. Well, maybe not entirely sane; let’s just say they like taking risks. The MX-5 Miata was a calculated risk nearly 30 years ago and look, it has become the best-selling roadster of all time. Granted, the CX-9 will not garner the same level of praise but what it has to offer is worth a few minutes of your time. The biggest piece of news related to the new CX-9 is ...

Can you blend a family and a Mazda CX-3?

2017 Mazda CX-3

The CX-3 is Mazda’s small crossover. It is a sub-compact vehicle and as such, makes no promise to carry your three kids and all their hockey equipment to practice at 4:30am on a Saturday morning. I wouldn’t promise that either. What the CX-3 does is deliver a right-sized cabin for the average equally compact family looking to get around in style all the while enjoying the driving experience and not stopping at every petrol station ...

Can you be a truck guy and own a Ridgeline?

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The short of the answer goes like this: I’ve travelled to Texas twice in the last three months and I spotted countless 1st and 2nd generation Ridgelines. So yes, yes you can if we are to use the Lone Star state as a barometer for all things Truck. The long depends on weight, as it the girth of items you need to carry or tow. The revised 3.5-litre V6’s got more power than previous but ...

2017 Acura MDX Elite, the brand’s image

2017 Acura MDX

Acura has long struggled with its identity over the last 15 years. In fact, the second half of the 2000s were a complete mess save for one vehicle: the MDX. Between you and I, if the MDX had not been as good as it was, and is, I don’t think we’d still have an Acura brand network to speak of. I won’t breakdown what was wrong with all the other products during that period of ...
