2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 Review: A Gift For All, But Mostly Americans

video
  Honestly, when I booked the Camaro LT1 prior to leaving on my extended stay in Florida, I knew about the trim but had never priced it. When I received my Satin Steel metallic example and the accompanying American spec sheet, I was floored. In the US, a brand new 2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 6-speed manual starts at $34,000. When...

2020 Lexus LX 570 Review: The Good Old Ways Are Still Mostly Good

video
In my 20+ years as an auto critic, I’ve moved four times. At each instance, it was necessary for me to introduce myself to the neighbours a few weeks after in to clear the air – no, I’m not a drug dealer, a used car dealer or some other kind of crook. Imagine then having a Nightfall Mica Blue...

2020 Ford Super Duty: Realtruck

2020 Ford Super Duty
2020 Ford Super Duty boasts class-leading towing and payload capacities New Tremor off-road package delivers on its promise Pricing ranges from $42K to more than $100K in Canada LITCHFIELD PARK, Arizona – Let’s face it, trucks aren’t the most eco-friendly vehicles on the planet, and they’re the easiest targets for treehuggers to complain about. They’re not completely wrong, as...

2020 Acura RDX: Bringing Excitement Back

2020 Acura RDX
2020 Acura RDX priced from $43,990 before freight and delivery charges Great handling, capable AWD, superb engine Touchpad infotainment system interface is infuriating If the most recent generation of the Acura RDX is an indication of what’s in store for the brand’s future models, we definitely have something to look forward to. The third-generation crossover is not only more...

2021 GMC Yukon Denali Quick Review: Pushing The Denali Agenda

Vail, Colorado. The idea behind this brief drive event was not to discover the all-new 2021 GMC Yukon Denali’s overall performance or refinement. If I was to report anything on these elements, I’d be grossly exaggerating the value of the time I got to spend behind the wheel of the all-new Yukon Denali. The driving exercise was meant solely to...

2020 Acura MDX Review: The Previous Go-To Still Has Loads Going For It

Only five years ago, the answer to the question “What 3-row SUV?” would have been, without hesitation: Acura MDX. For months shy of a full 20 years, the Acura MDX has paved and led the way for all other larger midsize 3-row SUVs, be they from luxury brands or otherwise. The third generation of the venerable Acura MDX arrived for...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 Review: Big Majestic

video
Like you, I tend to enjoy the finer things in life. Now, I’m not one to need the finest leathers, most exotic woods, 40+speaker audio systems, 30+way power adjustable seats, an onboard wine-cellar and 600-horsepower and in fact, most of this is a waste. In a world where excess is the norm, the Mercedes-Benz GLS strikes a sweet spot...

2020 Cadillac XT5 Review: Convincingly Refined

video
The week was supposed to start at the wheel of a 2020 Buick Regal GS. One thing lead to another delay and off I left the GM pick-up point with a spanking-new 2020 Cadillac XT5 Sport with all but 22km on the clock. I was slightly disappointed to not drive the Regal but getting behind the wheel of the...

2020 Kia Soul EV: It’s Worth Waiting For

video
If you’ve spent nearly 13 minutes of your precious time watching my video review of the 2020 Kia Soul EV, unfortunately, Motor Illustrated does not offer reparations for mental distress; I thought you should know. But seriously, I conclude my seemingly endless rant by saying that there are no current bad EVs, only better ones. The 2020 Kia Soul...

2020 Nissan Sentra: almost there

The compact car segment is experiencing its first real hard times since ... since ... always. It is not that the models offered in this category are not interesting, on the contrary. The reason, as you probably know, is that SUVs have become the vehicles of the hour, especially in the newest segment of subcompacts. Think Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V,...
