For some reason there are those in our midst who have started to think of ride sharing services as long distance travel options for them to take wherever they want to go. While a ride in your neighborhood using Uber can be inexpensive and easy for you to afford, going outside your city or county could be a costly way to use Uber, Lyft or any other ride sharing service to get where you want to go. In some cases, this may feel like the only option, but the problem may be chalked up to a new problem; Uber dependency.

Delivery companies have competed against each other for years to see how they could make their delivery systems more efficient. For some small, lightweight packages the idea of being able to launch drones out into the neighborhoods could allow for multiple deliveries to be executed at the same time. This is the idea behind the new Mercedes-Benz Vision Van that is also a creation of their drone partner, Matternet. With this new van the delivery world could change significantly and remain changed for the next several years until something else that’s better comes along.
Tesla has famously thumbed their collective noses at the marketplace and have not only sold their vehicles in a way that’s different from what we’re used to but also added tech updates over the air on a regular basis. Autopilot is a semi-autonomous driving system that’s been so close to a fully autonomous system that many owners of Tesla models have recorded themselves doing anything but driving. This doesn’t give a warm and fuzzy feeling to other drivers on the road, but the system is impressive and is the closest thing we have right now to a fully autonomous system.
Porsche took a chance fifteen years ago by adding the Cayenne to their lineup to be the first time an automaker that was known for building high end sports cars built an SUV. Here we are fifteen years later and this SUV continues to be one of the most impressive models that we’ve seen on the market. This SUV continues to get better with age and makes a huge difference in the driving that we expect from the SUV market. As a leader, Porsche has found a way to make the Cayenne better each year and must continue to do so now that more top end automakers are bringing SUVs to the market than ever before.
Many of us are fans of The Back to the Future series and admire the ingenuity that Doc Brown put into creating a time machine out of a DeLorean. This is a car that was made to be a sports car and offer a lightweight build that could go fast and give us the gullwing doors, which seemed to be a staple of 1980s supercars. The only problem was the fact that John DeLorean ended up out of business before he could get started, the DeLorean DMC-12 models became something of a collector’s item and a car that eventually stood for being the symbol of a time travelling device in Hollywood.
The vast pool of compact SUVs has grown over the years and the RAV4 has been around for most of them. This is an SUV that continues to be impressive with its excellent styling, impressive AWD system and diving manners that make a huge difference on and off the road. When you add in the fact that this model comes from Toyota, a leader in all things reliable and dependable, you have a vehicle that you know will continue to be there for you to give you the performance you want from the time you buy it until it’s time to say goodbye to this SUV many years later.
There’s no way an American company can build a luxury car as well as a European one, right? Of course not, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have been the class of the luxury market for generations and don’t seem to be ready to move over. Besides, isn’t Cadillac the brand for older generations to give them a vehicle that’s similar in size and drive to the hearse they will be shuffled off in once they pass on? If that’s your impression of Cadillac, it’s time to wake up and take a look at a brand that has redefined itself and has taken over the market.
Fisker Automotive was mired with the thought of not being able to produce the Fisker Karma in a way that would make the company profitable and sustainable. Henrik Fisker has been around and down this road many times and the Fisker name does carry a specific amount of weight in the automotive industry, unfortunately whenever he tries to build a car on his own it seems to be a losing case. Hopefully his new venture won’t be quite the same result for him, but his recent announcements don’t give us any reason to believe otherwise.
