2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The winds of change blowing through the automotive world are hardly gentle breezes these days. Very few manufacturers have been spared the hurricane force impact of the last few years. Especially hard hit? Chrysler. A perfect storm of conditions brought the company to its knees forcing intervention by Uncle Sam and [...]

2010 Lincoln MKT with EcoBoost

2010 Lincoln MKT with EcoBoost

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 [...]

Acura ZDX with Technology Package

Acura ZDX with Technology Package

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.  [...]

Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC Sedan

Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC Sedan

Symbols are powerful shorthand for communicating. The stop sign. Bono. A Coke bottle. The Nike swoosh. Those Darwin fish. Iconic symbols all. Add the Mercedes-Benz 3-pointed star to the list. No, put it near the top. It instantly says three things- luxury car, German engineering, and the [...]

2010 Audi Q5 Premium Plus

2010 Audi Q5 Premium Plus

Who’d have thought 5 years ago that the hot luxury category would be crossovers?  Sure there were rumblings.  The Lexus RX350 has been the brand’s top seller for years.  But really, it could be argued that they’re simply tall station wagons.  Into the fray comes the versatile Audi Q5. Audi has always made great looking [...]

BMW X6 xDrive50i

Hey there Mr./Ms. Unique Person. You deserve a unique car. Sports sedans are a dime a dozen these days. Luxury crossovers aren’t far behind. Perhaps an SAC is what you’re looking for. Want one? You’ll have to shop at a BMW store because at the moment, the only way to get one is to buy [...]

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

The CTS-V is one of the Driven teams favorite performance vehicles. It just got a whole lot more practical with the addition of the Sport Wagon variant. You need to fetch a bag of mulch or get your kid off to piano lessons right quick? 556 HP, Magnetic Ride Control and Brembo [...]

Bentley Continental Supersports

Bentley Continental Supersports

Chances are you will never lay eyes on a Bentley Continental Supersports.   It’s produced in very small numbers.  Ironic, because in a word it’s about more.  More exclusive than an already rare standard Continental GT.  More cylinders than two Toyota Corollas.  More money too (but you probably figured that one out by now).  The economy [...]

2010 Audi A4 Premium Plus

2010 Audi A4 Premium Plus

Automakers dream of creating vehicles that people can identify from 50 paces.  This can go horribly wrong (I’m talking to you Pontiac Aztek).  Audi has always done it right with the stylish A4. Naming all its competitors would eat up valuable space and time but the short list includes BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.  [...]

Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2010

Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2010

A bumper sticker spied on an old battered Land Rover Discovery sums up the brand- “Don’t follow me, you won’t make it”.  Land Rover has always made rugged off-road vehicles that are designed to go anywhere in the world.  Videos show these machines slogging through mud that should swallow them whole.
Really wringing one of these [...]
