That small Ram van you see driving around town with a purpose is a bit of a strange site. This van looks like it came from a version of some of earlier panel vans, but it has more attractive lines and designs than those old boring boxes. This Ram van is the ProMaster City which has been developed from the Fiat Doblo and offers the ability to be either a cargo model or a passenger version to be one of the vehicles that have been trusted more and more as the shuttle van used for a variety of purposes.
If you need a van for work or to transport passengers during your job but you don’t need one that big and brawny because you work in a large city with small streets and alleyways, the right choice for you is the Ford Transit Connect. This is a work van that’s actually smaller than most traditional minivans and it offers you the size and capability you need when you’re looking for a great van to get the job done for you. The Ford Transit Connect is strong enough to get the job done and has 128 cubic feet of cargo space in the cargo van configuration but also has the ability to accommodate up to seven people when you need to make this your people hauler.
The fear of the Chinese taking over the US automotive market with vehicles that are built as shoddily as some of the toys and other products we’ve seen from China in the past is gone with the advent of the new Envision. The Buick Envision is the first vehicle built in China by a US company to be imported to the US and it certainly worthy of the badging, the name and the place it’s holding for Buick. Not only did GM make the Envision to be a great crossover SUV, they stuck it right in the most competitive part of the market and so far the Envision is everything you could hope for.
Most of us look toward gasoline powered vehicles as the models we choose when it comes time for our family ride. Whether it’s a FWD sedan, a minivan or an SUV we tend to gravitate toward those that tend to give us the fuel mileage and price we’re looking for, but maybe the long haul is what you should consider. The history of diesel engines has been that these vehicles are typically more apt to last longer and give us the power and efficiency we want over time. One model in particular is the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel which is perfect for you and your entire family.
There are those times when you look at something from the past and wonder “what were thinking” and other times when you’re just completely amazed by the fact that we could be entertained by some ads. Some cultures do still run over the top and completely crazy ads that capture our attention which certainly amaze those of us in a more subdued society, but at one time we even saw ads that were over the tip and seemed to be just a little too much. While this particular ad is in Spanish, it was one that captured our attention during the days of older Dodge models.
The name alone causes some questions in our minds. Are we buying a truck or a wagon, but for those that are familiar with the Ram Power Wagon, there’s no doubt this is one of the most impressive ways to have a powerful off road ready Ram truck that can get the job done and give you the benefit of the features and equipment you want. While you might wonder at the name, it’s hard to wonder at the absolutely impressive capability of this amazing truck.
Chevrolet has brought us a new car to the market and we’ve already been buying this car up faster than any other EV that’s come before it. That’s right, the new Chevy Bolt EV is a car that has captured our attention and makes a huge difference for us on the road and when it comes to fuel costs. This new car is changing the game for Chevrolet in order to give us a car that’s perfect for the ride and one that will make a difference in our driving. With a car that offers us up to 238 miles of electric range on a single charge Chevrolet wants more from the Bolt than any other EV has had in the past.
The return of the classic muscle car has been part of the imagination of the automotive industry in the US for the past several years. We’ve seen all three major automakers move toward vehicles that are more alike with the models of several decades ago to give us the look and feel that we’ve loved in the past along with what we want to enjoy on the road. The Dodge Challenger is certainly one of the most classic looking muscle cars that have been reinvigorated on the market of today. This car continues to provide us what we want to enjoy on the road.
Nearly every piece of conventional wisdom has gone out the window over the years because of the changes in technology. Even so, many of us still prescribe to old suggestions and bits of knowledge that were part of automotive care in the past. It’s time to begin to forget anything you knew about cars of the past, especially if you have a car that’s been built in the past decade or so. Today, cars don’t need some of the same care items as we gave them in the past.
Learning how to make your car perform some of the actions we see on racetracks with the most talented drivers in the world is always a lot of fun. Who among us hasn’t tried to turn donuts in a parking lot or to perform burnouts when leaving from a scene. These dramatic ways to drive a car are testosterone driven ways to have a lot of fun in a car, but there has to be some control in place when you consider performing anything that’s going to create more heat and friction than normal. If you are going to make this mistake and should you need to work on your engine after wrecking it, make sure you use Genuine Parts to do so.
