    Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData There are only a handful of luxury super sports cars in the world. Ferrari, McLaren, Aston-Martin, Porsche and Lamborghini dominate the very short list. For a decade, Lamborghini’s bread and butter has been spread by the Gallardo, a mid-engine V-10 supercar that survived because it diversified from a slightly fussy Italian exotic to a dependable exotic with loads of … [Read More...]

    2014 Ford Explorer

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – Ford bet big on digital controls and the automaker seems to be winning. The center stack of every Ford is almost button-less, controls are actuated either through a touch screen or a touch pad. It makes for a really clean and uncluttered look. That’s the case with the 2014 Ford Explorer. The interior of the sport utility was modern and unfettered by a lot of … [Read More...]

    2014 Toyota Tundra 4X4

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – With nothing to haul or to tow, the only way to really test drive the 2014 Toyota Tundra half ton full size 4X4 pickup truck was to approach it as a personal use vehicle. Of the three cab styles available on the new Tundra --  a two-door regular cab, four-door double cab and four-door CrewMax – the test vehicle was the latter, a four-door Crew Max. That means … [Read More...]

    Mercedes-Benz CLA

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData America has a new baby – a baby Benz, that is. Twenty one years after Mercedes-Benz introduced a 14.8-foot-long C-Class as its first compact, the CLA-Class comes stateside to now become the company’s current compact (15.1-foot) sedan. Or, to be correct, four-door coupe. As well as being small, although its actually a touch longer than the C-Class sedan that lives … [Read More...]

    2014 Dodge Charger SXT Plus

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – One foot of snow and a rear-wheel-drive sedan makes for adventurous driving that is not fun. That is exactly what happened during the week-long test drive of the 2014 Dodge Charger SXT Plus. Worse, was that it was bitterly cold, like below zero cold and it stayed that way for days. One of the characteristics of cold weather and snow is that salt is not really … [Read More...]

    HARMAN, More than Car Radios

    by Frank S. Washington At this year’s North American International Auto Show, new cars and trucks were lowered from the ceiling; they busted through walls and they were driven onstage from behind dark curtains. There were gasps galore all over the place. Ford’s much anticipated all new F150 pickup truck uses military grade aluminum alloys in the frame and the sheet metal to reduce weight … [Read More...]

    2014 Cadillac CTS

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – It was longer, lower and meaner than the car it replaced. The 2014 luxury sedan had aluminum doors, a 50-50 weight distribution between front and rear and it could be equipped with a dual turbocharged six-cylinder engine that generated 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Those are the sorts of specs expected of European luxury sport sedans. But these … [Read More...]

    by Frank S. Washington MINNEAPOLIS – Sitting outside the entrance to the Graves 601 Hotel here, the 2014 Kia Soul looked the same as the old model – almost. You couldn’t tell with the naked eye but the new Soul was a little bit longer, a little bit lower and a little bit wider. By far, the most successful of all the automotive box-cars, the 2014 Kia Soul still had its wrap around … [Read More...]

    2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

    by Frank S. Washington PHOENIX – No cars, no dealers, no factory, no nothing; it is a convoluted story but that’s what BMW started with when it acquired the full rights to Rolls-Royce in 1998. The first car on BMW’s watch didn’t roll off the newly built assembly line at Goodwood, England until 2003. But since the introduction of the Roll-Royce Phantom, the company added five more models in … [Read More...]
