Fiat and Chrysler Photo Galleries

Friday May 30, 2014

Fiat and Chrysler are now part of the same corporate family. Well, technically, Fiat is the parent company and Chrysler is a wholly-owned subsidiary. There couldn't be two vehicles more different than the new Fiat 500L and the venerable Chrysler Town & Country minivan, but they're both designed to move people from point A to point B.

I was doing some housekeeping on the SUVs site today, and I realized that I had never posted photo galleries on either of these two corporate relatives. I've rectified that omission now with this 2014 Fiat 500L Photo Gallery and 2014 Chrysler Town & Country Photo Gallery.

Can you tell at a glance which vehicle is from the company's vanishing past, and which one is from its future?

2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Test Drive and Review

Friday May 30, 2014

Aaron Gold, who we all know from Cars.About.com, returns to our pages with a review that finally makes me a little jealous. He got to drive the new 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro out in the desert near Las Vegas. I'm a longtime 4Runner fan -- in fact, I'm a 4Runner owner. My 1994 4Runner, "Moose," is my favorite all-time vehicle. (By the way, stand by for some shocking news about Moose -- I'll write more about this development in the near future.).

Anyhoo -- Aaron'ss 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Test Drive and Review sets me to drooling. I want every special TRD piece he describes, and I want to drive that SUV!

2014 Audi SQ5 Test Drive and Review

Friday May 30, 2014

Today, we're featuring a review from Frank A. Aukofer, one of my favorite automotive journalists and people in general. He's been sharing his column, "DriveWays," with Cars.About.com for a while now, and this is his first review of a crossover vehicle since the relationship began.

The vehicle in question is the Audi SQ5, a fine subject for Frank's critical vision. Enjoy Frank's 2014 Audi SQ5 Test Drive and Review, then click on "comments" below and welcome Frank A. Aukofer to the SUVs.About.com fold.

2014 Fiat 500L Lounge Test Drive and Review

Wednesday April 30, 2014

Trim levels are often an art. There's no empirical difference between "Premium" and "Limited" -- both mean whatever the manufacturer says they mean.

But with the 500L, Fiat has invented a whole new language of trim levels. From base to top, the trim levels for the new compact crossover are "Pop," "Easy," "Trekking," and "Lounge." Why not? Who's going to stop Fiat from being inventive? Not me, that's for sure.

2015 Cadillac Escalade Test Drive and Review

Wednesday April 30, 2014

That's Aaron Gold, About.com's Cars Expert, doing his best to make sure that my picture of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is a good one. Aaron and I were on the same wave for the Escalade launch event in Los Angeles last week, and he has written a review for us. Always happy to host Aaron's writing, especially since we don't always agree about big SUVs. This one is interesting -- lots to like, lots of reason not to like it.

2014 Lexus GX 460 Photo Gallery

Monday April 21, 2014

I think the new Lexus corporate grille, which they refer to as the "spindle" grille, is pretty good looking. It certainly fits on the 2014 Lexus GX 460, about which I recently wrote this 2014 Lexus GX 460 Test Drive and Review.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, though. Take a look at this 2014 Lexus GX 460 Photo Gallery, then click on "comments" and share you thoughts about the spindle grille and the GX in general.

2014 Lexus GX 460 Test Drive and Review

Friday April 18, 2014

I have always like the Lexus GX. For my purposes, it's the perfect size for an SUV, and it's still body-on-frame when just about everything else is unibody. It just makes more sense to me in a very old-fashioned way. With actual frame rails, I always feel like the vehicle is less likely to get tweaked or twisted when withstanding the rigors of off-road driving.

Of course, most GXs never see the edge of the pavement. But still, the SUV experience is about capability -- even if drivers never take advantage of it.

2015 GMC Yukon Photo Gallery

Monday March 31, 2014

I honestly didn't think that GM was ever going to remake their full-size SUVs, but I was pleasantly surprised when Aaron Gold, About.com's Cars Expert, and I were both invited to drive the new offerings. There aren't a lot of visual distinctions between the Chevy and GMC versions, but both are visibly improved over the outgoing vehicles -- which were not that bad to begin with.

2015 GMC Yukon Test Drive and Review

Friday March 28, 2014

Aaron Gold, About.com's Cars Expert, graces our pages again, and we're glad to have him here. You see, General Motors chose to launch the new full-size SUVs from GMC and Chevrolet all at the same time on a unique event that saw journalists driving from Tahoe to Napa, meeting in the middle and switching vehicles. I can honestly say it was a first for me. I recruited Aaron to review the GMC products, while I took care of the Chevys. It worked out pretty well, and you get a wider range of opinion in the process.

2015 Chevrolet Suburban Photo Gallery

Monday March 10, 2014

You might not notice the changes in the Suburban right away. It'll take a little closer inspection.

At first glance, it looks like a nip and a tuck. But GM's expert surgeons have trimmed away more than a few wrinkles, they've totally remade the full-size body-on-frame SUV for 2015.

Take a look at this 2015 Chevrolet Suburban Photo Gallery and see what you think.
