    2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD

    By Mary M. Chapman  Because I came of age in a different era, I've been trying, for more years than I'd rather admit, to get used to the "new" Cadillacs. See, Daddy was a Cadillac man, and every two years or so, in the '60s and '70s, he'd buy a new Eldo or Deville, to go with our requisite van or wagon, of course. That vaunted Cadillac crest? It may as well have been our family's crest So, … [Read More...]

    2015 Dodge Durango R/T Blacktop AWD

     By Frank S. Washington CHICAGO – We drove a 2015 Dodge Durango here from Detroit and navigated around the Windy City for about 10 days. There was some apprehension, not with the Durango but with fuel consumption. Our tester was powered by a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI and immediately the price of gasoline during a 10 day-stay came to mind. After all, this HEMI made 360 horsepower, 390 pound-feet of … [Read More...]

    2015 Mercedes-Benz C300


    By Casey Williams - MyCarData.com With each generation, Mercedes claims the C-Class is more sophisticated, more upscale, and just more of everything. That was true when the 1994 C-Class replaced the 190E and it’s true as the fourth-generation supplants the third. You often hear these cars compared to the flagship S-Class. Beyond hyperbole, those comparisons bear truth. By introducing the … [Read More...]

    Cadillac ATS Coupe
