When you have to play in a sandbox with the Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300 and Toyota Avalon you can expect to have some sand thrown in your face, but the Chevrolet Impala certainly has the ability to throw some back as well. The Impala is one of the only sedans in this class that does not offer AWD but it does offer a bi-fuel engine, a wireless charging pad for multiple mobile devices, a roomy interior and the most powerful naturally aspirated V6 engine in the class. Take that Taurus, 300 and Avalon, the Impala just kicked a big pile of sand in your face. Read more
Why has the Toyota Tacoma been the same truck for nearly a decade? Because nothing else has challenged its dominance in the midsized truck segment for that time. After the big three Toyota is the best-selling truck maker in the industry with a huge lead over Nissan. With no midsize offering from Ford or GM for several years the Tacoma was able to continually be the leader when its next competitor was the Nissan Frontier. This meant only keeping up with the new tech that was going in and Toyota could keep using the same platform and building the same truck over that time. Read more

What do you do when with the best-selling sedan? You find a way to improve it, offers something that may be limited, and give it some treatments that just might drive some great sales of a trim level that will easily entice and excite the public.

Who is meant to drive the Golf R? Everyone would benefit from some time behind the wheel, but this special edition of the Golf will not fit in everyone’s pocketbook. Those who do pony up for the much higher priced R version of this small hatchback we have come to love will enjoy an awesome ride from Volkswagen that makes them say “Mercedes-Benz what” and “BMW who” knowing they have one of the best drives that has ever come out of Germany. In fact, even though the Germans are known for being staunch and stodgy (even though they brought us beer and brats) this car is certainly capable of being called FUN! Read more
Because the Sorento received major changed for 2014, the 2015 version is only slightly refined from a year ago. Enhancements were made to the chassis, engines and interior to offer a crossover SUV that feels much more luxury than its price tag might suggest. Offered in both seven-passenger and five-passenger configurations, owners can have their Sorento be ready to offer space for a growing family to enjoy or the extra cargo room some owners yearn for. Dealing with stiff competition from the Ford Edge, Dodge Journey, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder, the Sorento offers an amazing amount of features for the money to make this great SUV quite a bargain.
The changes made for this new model year include a minor upgrade to the grill and front end, an addition of a navigation system without having to add the UVO system, an Infinity sound system and a more fuel efficient four-cylinder engine. All the additions will help take a great crossover SUV and put it over the top of the competition for the upcoming model year.
As a longstanding name in the full-sized SUV category, the Yukon offers owners plenty of space, towing capacity, and ability for any task. No matter if the crew needs to get to the job site and build something awesome and inspiring, or the family needs to get away for the weekend in the woods, at the lake, or to the beach, the Yukon is there to handle all needs with ease and enjoyment that is unmatched in its class.
Recently the Yukon has been heading into the luxury platforms of the full-sized SUV world with its highly luxurious Denali trim. For 2015 the standard trim is actually going to be even nicer than the old Denali trim which means the Denali will have to be even better; a huge bonus to those already fanatical Denali lovers. The entire lineup of Yukon is completely new for 2015. With all the great new looks of the exterior, new interior and upgraded technology shoppers might think GMC forgot about the inner workings of this beast, but they would be wrong. The chassis, suspension and both V8 engines are all upgraded to offer an even better ride and more fuel efficiency than ever before.
