    ALAN GELL | Updated: Fri, Jan 30, 2015

    It was the morning to swap 'test cars.'  For the week to come, the delivered vehicle was not just an ordinary pickup truck.  This was a workhorse, a new 2015 Chevy Silverado heavy-duty with almost everything added on to it.  Specifically, it was the High Country edition,...

  • 2015 Audi R8

    Nelson Ireson, | Updated: Wed, Jan 28, 2015

    The Audi R8’s supercar status is unquestionable, with its dramatic appearance and raucous sounds. But despite the rock-star act, the R8 is also a very approachable, comfortable car to drive. For the 2015 model year, a few new look and feel elements further enhance this proven sports car. The...

  • 2015 GMC Canyon - Review

    Marty Padgett , | Updated: Thu, Jan 22, 2015

    Until now, shoppers wanting something less than a full-size truck had exactly two choices, and neither of them were what we'd call fresh, or innovative. The mid-size niche is growing this year, in the form of two new trucks nearly identical in configuration, but not so close in style: the...

  • 2015 Honda Fit

    Review By Bengt Halvorson, | Updated: Thu, Jan 15, 2015

      The Honda Fit did extraordinarily well before in making a lot of useful space out of a small footprint. And with the redesigned 2015 model, it does even better—plus, it sports crisper, more aerodynamic lines, as well as a new and more fuel-efficient powertrain. The 2015 Fit retain the...

  • 2015 Infiniti QX60: terrific SUV for family holidays

    by ALAN GELL Automotive Journalist | Updated: Mon, Jan 5, 2015

        The Christmas holiday week was approaching.  Children and grandchildren would be making their way 'over the river and through the woods' to Grandpa and Grandmother's house.  When I was told I would be test-driving a new Infiniti QX60 for those two weeks, I was...

  • 2015 GMC Acadia - Review

    Marty Padgett, | Updated: Sun, Dec 28, 2014

     GMC made its name on pickup trucks , but over the past decade it's become equally well-known for its sport-utility and crossover vehicles. The Acadia isn't related at all to its workhorse trucks and full-size SUVs--instead, it's an eight-passenger crossover that tackles the...

  • Most and least reliable small cars

    Published: Mon, Dec 22, 2014

  • 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid: Full-sized luxury without full-sized price

    by ALAN GELL | Updated: Wed, Dec 3, 2014

    It was July, the hottest month of the year.  My initial reaction for a test-drive vehicle was not the make, model, or mileage.  It was a simple, “Does the AC work really well?”  Once that had been established, I could relax and enjoy all the pleasures of driving the new Avalon...

    BY ALAN GELL | Updated: Tue, Dec 2, 2014

    Almost 2 million of the RAV4 vehicles have been produced for the US market and about 80 percent of them are still on the road.  Earlier this year, I was privileged to have one of these great vehicles for a full-week test-drive.  It was an XLE model, front-wheel-drive, with an exterior...
