2022 Mazda MX-30 GS Review: Five Years Too Late

The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is priced from $42,150 in Canada, $33,470 in the US. Specifically, the MX-30 is only available in California, British Columbia, and Quebec in all of North America at the time of the review. Pricing and range decimate the MX-30 chances for any kind of success. Way back in October of 2019, images of the Mazda...

2022 Infiniti QX55 Review: When Everything Goes Wrong but it Isn’t

Base pricing for the QX55 starts at $51,995 in Canada, $46,500 in the US. The QX55 is a monumental sales flop but really at being a luxury SUV. About the sales, no more than 4,900 were sold in Canada and the US combined in 2021.  When I reviewed the Infiniti QX50 two years ago, I concluded that there was...

2022 Nissan Pathfinder Review: Back in the Mix

Base pricing for the new Pathfinder starts at $43,998 in Canada, $33,680 in the US. The new 5th generation Pathfinder is a proper return to its roots. A new transmission and decent styling are all it really needed.  The Nissan Pathfinder was, until the 4th generation, one of North America’s premier midsize SUV options. It had developed a reputation...

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness Review: The One that Could Have Changed Everything

Pricing for the 2022 Subaru Outback starts at $31,195 in Canada, $26,945 in the US. The new Wilderness trim is the big news story for the 2022 Outback. Is it the coolest SUV-non-SUV on the market? I believe, with rosy-coloured glasses, that had Subaru introduced the Wilderness trim for the Outback upon its initial introduction in 1995, we wouldn’t...

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Review: Brute in an Armani Suit

Pricing for the 2022 Jaguar F-Pace starts at $98,400 in Canada, $86,600 in the US. There is no such thing as an SVR “light” model. The F-Pace SVR may be the most under-appreciated high-performance premium SUV. I wasn’t lying when I wrote in my Jaguar F-Pace S P250 review that I’d not yet driven my last F-Pace. This time...

2021 Ford Bronco Wildtrack Review: There is No Substitute

Base price in Canada for the 2022 Ford Bronco 4-door is $46,249 in Canada, $33,450 in the US. The Bronco has so much to live up to, and it does. The Ford Bronco, the real Bronco, had so much hype surrounding it that it could have all gone wrong. In a way, lots went wrong but the majority had...

2021 Cadillac Escalade Review: The Competition is Strongest From Within

Pricing for the 2021 Escalade starts at $90,348 in Canada, $76,195 in the US. The 15-inch longer ESV is $3,500 more in Canada. GM’s full-size trucks are exceptional. The more I think about the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade and its immediate siblings, the GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe, the less the big Caddy seem special to me. This is...

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee First Drive Review: The King is not Dead; All Hail the New King

Pricing for the 2022 Grand Cherokee L starts at $51,545 in Canada, $37,390 in the US. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the most accomplished SUVs in history and it continues to be with the new 5th generation truck. Fuel efficiency is its only quasi-weakness, but Stellantis has a plan. The Jeep Grand Cherokee was introduced back in...

2021 Mazda6 Review: Until We Meet Again

The 2021 Mazda6 is priced from $27,700 in Canada, $24,475 in the US. 2021 is the final model year for the 6. Despite Mazda’s recent efforts, it was just another sedan. I first encountered the Mazda6 in 2003 at the wheel of a yellow 2004 5-door GT with the V6 and a manual transmission. I was immediately smitten with...

2021 Jaguar F-Pace S P250 Review: Special, Refined, and Distinguished as a Jag Should be

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is priced from $60,350 in Canada, $49,995 in the US. The F-Pace is a not-so-hidden gem among small, midsize premium SUVs. Refined, classy, this is a Jaguar. This isn’t the first time, nor is the last (SVR review coming soon), that I’ve spent a week with a Jaguar F-Pace. Since 2017, I’ve not met an...
