The Driver’s Seat: Shooting Magazine Covers
I’ve said it a few times in the past but it’s worth restating, writing this editorial is the most difficult thing that I do each month. Drive reviews are no big deal and tech stories are fairly easy, however, when it comes time to pull together an editorial I tend to suffer from major writer’s

Ramble On – Shared Burdens
The automotive world is fairly ablaze right now with armchair experts crying foul over platform sharing. One of the more notable examples is Toyota approaching BMW about a jointly developed sports car project, with one result the G29-generation Z4 roadster and the other the Supra A90 coupe. Critics probably unfairly reduce the Supra to a

100 Years of Dodge Trucks
Having examined both General Motors’ and Ford’s first century, it’s now time to chronicle the Dodge side of things for vehicles that appear noteworthy for one reason or another. As usual, we don’t expect you to agree with us, but as Dodge might say, tough Darts. The Dodge Brothers built components long before complete vehicles,

Long-Term Report 3: 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali
While we try our best to break up these reports by quarter and keep a relatively even number of miles in each one, sometimes it just doesn’t work out. In the previous report we covered more than 7,000 miles, while in this one we hit just over 3,000. Regardless of that, we’re still learning a

Truck Trend Shop Class: Engine Compression
Compression: An automotive term used by everybody, forever. Let’s get into some detail and maybe develop a better understanding. Pressure, and more pressure: It’s a must-have to produce power within an internal-combustion engine. Lighting up a mixture of air and fuel is a wonderful thing, but if the mix is not fired under considerable pressure

Daily Driven: 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Sold between the 1990 and 2012 model years, the Mitsubishi Eclipse largely had an excellent reputation for exciting performance and bold styling, particularly in its bulging, turbocharged, all-wheel-drive first generation (codenamed by fans the DSM). Likely to cash in on that vehicle’s storied name recognition, Mitsubishi named its first coupe-styled crossover the Eclipse Cross, angering

2013 Ford F-150 Raptor A.R.E. Shell Install
If you’ve spent any time around pickup enthusiasts, you’ll know there’s a heated debate between those that love truck shells (also known as bed caps) and those that hate them. And there seems to be no middle ground. Regardless of which side you’re on it’s hard to deny the functionality that a shell brings with

Deep Dive: Ford’s 1.5L and 3.0L Diesel Engines
In 2018, Ford announced two new diesel engines designed, tested, and built for trucks. One, the EcoBlue 1.5L inline-four-cylinder destined for the Ford Transit Connect, and the other, the 3.0L Power Stroke V-6, aimed at F-150 owners who haul and tow. We spent hours interviewing Ford engineers to deliver an in-depth look at each engine.

The trendy winter-ski/summer-festival town of Telluride, Colorado, population roughly 2,500, looks like a former mining town because it is. Nestled in a canyon surrounded by forested mountains and cliffs and weathered ruins of old mining operations, it once yielded deposits of zinc, lead, copper, silver, and gold.

But the MDX still acquits itself incredibly well, matching newer competitors jab for jab. Among its aces are
