Review: 2022 Infiniti QX55

When you’re introducing a new car model to your lineup, one of the best things you can do is make it a head-turner. Get everyone’s attention first before the excitement wears off and it blends into the background with all its competitors.  Infiniti did just that when they introduced the QX55 for the 2022 model…Continue Reading

Review: 2022 BMW X3 xDrive30i

Technically, the X3 falls into the category of small SUV. And yet, nothing about it seems small. It delivers big performance with some big-time fun. It’s been nearly twenty years since BMW unveiled the X3, and it’s been a fan favorite since that very first day. And really, what’s not to like? It delivers good…Continue Reading

Review: 2021 Ford Bronco

For thirty years, Ford produced a sport utility vehicle called the Bronco, built to compete with Jeep. The two companies maintained a spirited rivalry until 1996, when Ford pulled the plug. And, for the next 25 years, the Bronco simply lived on as a legend as the F-150 took over the crown. Ah, but now…Continue Reading

Review: 2021 BMW 430i Convertible

As we like to say on the radio show, People are different. That’s never more true than when we choose the cars that catch our eye. Some opt for bigger and boxier, while others prefer smaller and sleeker. Then some people, I guess, like front grills that look like a beaver. Okay, so I’m kidding,…Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Audi Q3 S line

The Q3 actually debuted in 2011, but not in America. For the first four years Audi kept the car in Europe, letting it mature a bit. But that was a problem, because when it finally did make it across the pond, its unveiling in the U.S. left many unimpressed. The problem was that it hadn’t…Continue Reading

Review: 2020 GMC Acadia AT4

Here’s the story of an SUV that went on a diet, and things turned out well. The original GMC Acadia was a full-sized SUV when it debuted for 2007, but ten years later the automaker lopped off a few inches, both length and width, along with about 700 pounds. Today, with some minor additions for…Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Volkswagen Arteon

You’ve heard of gateway drugs and gateway tech. Get ready for the gateway luxury car. Volkswagen has dabbled in the luxury sandbox in the past, with only a smattering of success. Now they’re back with a vengeance, proudly showing off a car that’s a little bit sedan, a little bit hatchback, and a good dose…Continue Reading

Review: 2020 BMW X3

Here’s something that stood out to me when I sat down to write this review of the BMW X3. You can find a starting MSRP of about $42,000. The version I drove came in at more than $82,000. I’d say you have choices. And here’s the cool thing: All of those choices will be good,…Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Alpha Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio

We generally buy an SUV in order to accommodate our oh-so-busy lives of hauling people and stuff around. We don’t naturally think, “Hey, I want something sporty and badass. Think I’ll get an SUV.” Well, my friend, welcome to the marriage of utility and fun. It’s called the Stelvio. Or, using the name on its…Continue Reading

Review: 2020 Chevrolet Equinox Premier

The Chevrolet Equinox made its debut for the 2005 model year as a mid-size SUV before eventually dropping down in weight class to become a compact crossover. The results have been pretty stellar throughout the journey. In fact, last year Chevy sold more units of the Equinox than ever before, approaching 350,000. It’s a hit.…Continue Reading
