There I was, roaring down the streets in a 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and all 797 of its horsepower, when the song changed. I turned it up, the subwoofer thundering behind me although the audio inside of the car wasn’t too loud. I was that person. I liked it. Then, the questions started.
Miata, Miata, Miata. It feels like that’s all anyone ever talks about, because it can be hard not to. But there are other small, fun roadsters on the market, like the 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth. So what if it’s based on the Miata? I have one this week. What do you want to know about it?
Hyundai and Kia both recently issued big, and somewhat complicated, voluntary recalls in the U.S. for millions of 2011 to 2018 car models, which have been the subject of hundreds of reports about engine bay fires. Most of the recall, though, is just a software update to alert drivers that their engine might fail.
When the 2020 BMW 7 Series showed itself to the world, you probably thought it looked a little like your childhood dog that never stopped sniffing you before realizing that was a little mean. But you couldn’t shake the feeling that it was just a little too, uh, nosy, and for good reason. Its grille is 40 percent…
The 2018 Mazda 6 is a pretty car with an ugly truth: If you buy one, you’ll have to make the difficult choice between a manual transmission and a quick, new turbocharged engine with a lot more horsepower and torque. You can’t have both from the factory, so the question becomes: How much are you willing to give up to…
So, you thought a $121,000 auction price for that immaculate 1994 Toyota Supra on Bring a Trailer was a little much? Yeah, so did we. That was cute of all of us, because the car is now back up for sale by a Chicago dealership for $500,000.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is coming to the U.S. for the first time this year, albeit without the option for a hatchback or manual transmission like it’ll have elsewhere. But with its arrival comes a new entry-level model, so, beginning this year, the cheapest new Mercedes on American lots starts at $32,500.
In a time when we compulsively post our lives online, it can be easy to ignore logic. The feds say it’s dangerous to step out of moving cars for a viral dance challenge? Who cares. Road rash is worth the likes and shares. Netflix says to stop doing tasks, including driving, blindfolded for another viral challenge?
Trucks on hold, a partnership between Volkswagen and Ford, a potential saving grace for the thought-to-be-doomed Cadillac CT6, more jail for former Nissan chairperson Carlos Ghosn, and struggles at Fiat Chrysler’s Canadian plants. All of this and more in The Morning Shift for Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2018.
As a group of spectators in the path of a Dakar Rally truck competitor ran to get out of the way over the weekend, one tripped and fell in the sand. The truck ran over the spectator’s leg while its driver, who said he didn’t know it happened, was later disqualified from the rally for not stopping to attend to the…
The Cadillac CT6 sedan might be dying in America after a short and tumultuous life here, but that doesn’t mean its performance variant, the CT6-V, has been forgotten. Instead, the CT6-V is here, drowning out its close relative’s problems with a 550-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 and a base price of $88,790.
The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty’s banner feature, at least in terms of the torque wars between American truck brands, is its 1,000 lb-ft of torque and 35,100-pound towing capacity. But in addition to those numbers, Ram also claims features like adaptive cruise control and auto braking will work with 35,000 pounds in tow.
A Tennessee man took his boat to the lake recently to practice for an upcoming finishing tournament, and launched more than he expected off of the boat ramp—his Dalmatian, who was in the man’s RV while his owner was getting the boat ready, knocked the vehicle into reverse and sent it for a swim.
Formula One’s passing numbers, especially at the front of the field, are often dismal—even with team orders accounting for some. Since passes are usually integral to entertainment quality in racing, it’s a bad deal. But F1 hasn’t given up on the problem, and is apparently using simulations to better design tracks.
The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the new step in the ladder between the 717-horsepower, production Hellcat and the limited-run, 840-HP Demon that was only around for the 2018 model year. That means it comes in at a rated 797 HP and an unrated, off-the-charts level of madness.
The Brabham family was a racing icon for six decades before reviving the name as a car company, launching the 700-horsepower BT62 track car for $1.3 million last year. But the switch to production isn’t keeping Brabham from racing, since the company announced Wednesday that it wants to head to Le Mans.
A woman who lives in Queens told local news outlets she came home one night last week and parked where she has for a decade, only to see her car hauled off by a New York City Police Department tow truck in the morning—along with a new “no parking” sign that had been installed about two hours before the tow.
As Formula One and its race teams continue trying to outwardly promote and expand esports ostensibly to support F1, things aren’t going as smoothly in the already established sim-racing community online. YouTube users can’t seem to escape allegedly erroneous copyright claims by Formula One Management on their gaming…
As cars become rolling computers with ghastly repair bills, automakers aren’t stopping the tech at safety sensors and complicated infotainment screens. The windshield is up for grabs, too, and Hyundai has ideas for it—ideas that include augmented reality and telling a driver about nearby activities in real time.
In the ever-difficult decision of whether to spend an evening playing the legal version of bumper cars at a local arcade or heading to a dealership for the illegal one with real cars, local law enforcement said four kids in Houston went with the latter this weekend. It cost a bit more than some gaming tokens to do it.
