The CUV with an emphasis on U

The enthusiast’s minivan gets a lightning-bolt.
The world is not fair. Talented people don’t always get the attention they deserve. Great TV shows languish in obscurity. In Japan, Outlander is one of the country’s best selling crossovers. In America? Not so much.
If this is it, it’s the best look yet at Ford’s next generation family SUV.
Bias. You may not suffer from this human foible but I do. That’s a tough admission. My job is to leave preconceived notions on the curb. Still, when the big Lincoln MKT rolled up for its 7 day stay with me, all my brain could muster up was “Hmmm, my parents are visiting. They’ll like [...]
Humans like to put things in categories. The food pyramid has your proteins, grains, fruits and veggies all neatly divided. Houses come in craftsman, modern, tudor, or McMansion. Just about everything in our society is organized and categorized. Except maybe Pee Wee Herman.
Common automobile tags are sedan, coupe, luxury rides, convertible, SUV, and pony car. [...]
For those who think all cars look the same these days I offer up exhibit A- The new Honda Accord Crosstour. While the rest of the industry steadfastly applies the “box on wheels” formula to crossovers, Honda just says no to the same old same old.

What did I do last summer? A 900 mile family road trip in California. A nightmare for some but I like driving (and, needless to say, my family). Voyages like these are the perfect test for family rigs and for this trip I’ve chosen Chevy’s new 2010 Equinox. Yes, I’ve already reviewed it but that [...]
True utility for those happy to admit they have a family
By Tom Voelk
To understand that cars are as much about fashion as they are transportation, one only has to look at the minivan. Back when Chrysler unveiled Caravan and Voyager in the early 80’s they couldn’t make enough of them. Hot as blue jeans in [...]
A link to the Drive XC6o video review on YouTube is at the end of this review.
Selling cars these days is brutal. Put the economy aside for a moment. Style, utility and high quality don’t impress like before because everyone builds great product. Vehicles last longer. More and more brands have appeared. They’re competing for [...]
