Justin Bell dives into the history of Jaguar, and at takes a look at the I-Pace, at Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion 2018.
After multiple tests, we’ve concluded that the Honda Accord is the best car in its class. So needless to say we had high expectations for the hybrid version. In many ways, it adds to the Accord’s appeal as a practical sedan, offering a claimed 47 mpg combined (we’ll get to that later) and identical cargo
With the Jaguar I-Pace crossover hitting dealerships this fall, BMW is hard at work on its own electric SUV, as these new spy shots show. Our spies in Germany have caught the upcoming BMW iX3 conducting tests on public roads, and based on this prototype, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait long to
Our Honda CR-V LX has been with us for about two months now, and we’ve finally taken it to the track. I also had the chance to drive the CR-V with the 1.5-liter turbo engine the same day as my CR-V equipped with the 184-hp 2.4-liter engine, and I noticed very similar driving dynamics. Both
Hyundai teamed up with Bryan Herta Autosport to field two Hyundai i30 N TCR race cars, placing two team drivers at the helm: Michael Lewis and Mark Wilkins.
BMW revealed the 8 Series coupe body style earlier this summer, and now it’s beginning to tease its next variant of the flagship two-door: the 8 Series convertible. While hot weather testing in Las Vegas and Death Valley, BMW snapped its own spy shots of a camouflaged 8 Series drop-top. Like many other automakers, BMW

Twice now I’ve been dazzled by schemes for scrubbing CO2 out of the atmosphere and turning it into fuel. In July 2008 it was NaOH scrubbers and exotic catalysts; in March 2012, it was ionic amine fluids and a formic-acid fuel cell. Both were tricky to describe, energy intense, and costly; years later, neither is
We get it. The shape of the 911 is an icon on par with that of the Coke bottle and Betty Boop. But really? Is there no end to the amount people are prepared to pay to really make one of these shapes their own? There are over a million potential used factory 911s to

Take a look at BMW’s Z series, which stretches all the way back to 1989 with the Z1, and you’ll see a few common design themes across the entire lineup. But you’ll see a more obvious design lineage when you look at just the Z3 and last two Z4s. The 2019 BMW Z4 diverges slightly

It used to be that sport-utility vehicles were for workmanlike pursuits—a nicer version of a pickup, something to carry your horse tack or fishing tackle, something for the rancher to drive when helping out the hired hands on the Ponderosa. The emphasis was on enclosed utility. But it was still essentially a truck. And although
When you think of a car cruise, you think of hot rods, muscle cars, and a few vintage oddballs. You don’t think trucks, but then you don’t know the Dream Cruise. We spotted nearly as many trucks rolling down Woodward this year as cars, and we’ve picked out 13 of the most interesting examples. More
Each August some of the rarest, most beautiful and most valuable cars in the world gather on the Monterey Peninsula for the annual Pebble Beach Concours …
The 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise is a celebration of automotive diversity, and we were there to cover it in person, from hearses and emergency vehicles to Broncos, Mustangs, Camaros, and Mopars, to the insights from “Mr. Camaro”—Motor Trend remained the place for the best Woodward car content. But is it possible to pick from the
Mercedes debuted the Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 concept coupe in 2016 at Pebble Beach, only to follow up with the equally stunning cabriolet version last year. Naturally, we have high expectations for what the automaker plans on doing this year. The automaker will carry on the tradition with yet another concept, and this one appears to
As the end of our time with this 2017 CR-V Touring approaches, we took delivery of a 2018 CR-V LX. Honda wanted us to spend more time with the SUVOTY winner and, in in doing so, expose its base-model CR-V to the complexities of our long-term test. Soon after our 2018 CR-V LX arrived, I
An experimental Ford Shelby GT500 Prototype nicknamed “Little Red” was discovered in a North Texas field this past spring after spending at least two decades outdoors. The owner obviously didn’t know he had a 1967 Shelby GT500 Experimental Coupe rusting away next to a bunch of mesquite trees on his property. What’s left of the
I’ve just sampled an ultra-high-performing part from the Ford Performance Parts catalog, and if it weren’t already sold out I’d be urging you to pick up the phone, dial 800-367-3788 and order up part number M-FP500-FP350S. You would first need to have a pretty high credit limit and a trailer, though, because this part costs
