    Video Review: 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The BMW M3 Contender.

    It’s not easy to get over the fact that the Germans have dominated the high-performance luxury car segment year after year. So, when I got hold of the Cadillac CTS-V coupe, I knew that it would be hard to be a fair judge. This car would really have to blow my socks off if it had any shot of taking out the M3; my experiences with GM vehicles haven’t always been positive. But, I got it… Read More

    2011 Infiniti M37S: An Extensive Technology Feature List, But The First Impression Isn't Positive

    You can pretty much stand off to the side of the Infiniti M37S and check off the little box for every available vehicle feature: H-O V6? *check* 4 wheel steer? *check* Adaptive cruise control? *check* Bose active noise cancellation? *check* 5.1 Bose surround system? *check* 3D navigation system? *check* A 2011 Infiniti M37S hit my driveway a little bit ago and after taking it for a quick drive… Read More

    A Week In The Technology-Packed 2011 Ford Edge Sport

    Hello, gorgeous. A 2011 Ford Edge Sport just hit my driveway and I’m in love. This vehicle is a looker inside and out. It’s funny how much more modern this model feels over last year’s model — I guess a bit of sheet metal plastic surgery can go a long way. There’s now a large grill and sweeping headlights up front that define the rest of the crossover’s… Read More

    The Technology Behind The Hyundai Equus Is Impressive

    As we move into the next decade, there will be a push for more electronics in our cars. We humans can’t get enough of this thing called constant contact. It doesn’t even have to be with another human; just playing on smartphone apps is enough to lull that endless depression that comes from living in the overstimulation zoo that is modern society. Consumers want technology that can reach out… Read More

    A Week In The High-Tech Hyundai Equus Super Sedan

    The Hyundai Equus, pronounced Eh-cuus, is Hyundai’s flagship luxury sedan in South Korea—so popular among the upper-class, that the South Korean President has one. Continuing off the car maker’s recent successes in the states, Hyundai is bringing the Equus here to enjoy sales from the already-brimming full-size luxury segment. This is the first Korean car to compete directly… Read More

    The Green Supercars Of Tomorrow Are On Display At The Paris Auto Show

    Supercars are as important as space programs. They are a hotbed of technology development and these incredibly expensive platforms allow designers and engineers alike to run wild. Sometimes even when the vehicles are sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, they do not directly make the companies money. But yet supercars are built over and over again because they are just that important. The… Read More

    Review: 2010 Range Rover Supercharged

    The Range Rover is an icon, perched above its peers as the sexiest offroad/onroad SUV on the planet. But does the performance match its looks?

    The Gadgetry Inside the 2010 Range Rover Supercharged: Sadly Disappointing [Video]

    Let’s take a look at the 2010 Range Rover Supercharged infotainments systems because after all, shopping for in-vehicle technology is just about as important as feeling out the powertrain and suspension. Often these creature comforts can make or break a vehicle. But not the Range Rover Supercharged. Nope. Even though the infotainment stack is antiquated and the LCD dash cluster is nothing… Read More

Sure, the Range Rover Supercharged can tackle just… Read More
