2021

2021 Volvo XC90 T8-E



PHOENIX — For years, I’ve made long weekend pilgrimages to visit family, explore National Parks, and go on golf junkets, mostly because I love to drive and partly because it’s cheap. Recently, it seemed a certain virus might annul my trip to southern Utah, but restrictions eased just in time for our Bryce Canyon-Zion hiking excursion. We were in luck.

2021 Chevy Trailblazer



PHOENIX — For the 2021 model year, Chevrolet has resurrected yet another name from the past, this time the Trailblazer. But rather than the truck-based utility vehicle that was available from 2001 through 2009, the new Trailblazer is a very different vehicle that’s much smaller and slots between the larger Chevy Equinox and smaller Trax. The only thing it shares with the old Trailblazer is the name. Also know, this is not a derivative model of the mid-sized Chevrolet Blazer that’s larger and was an all-new model for 2019.

(June 7, 2020) The automotive market is booming with sub-compact SUV crossovers, and Kia and its corporate cousin Hyundai, have been leading the way with well-made and attractive products. A great example is the all-new 2021 Kia Seltos, which joins a very attractive lineup of small Kia crossovers including the Soul, Niro and Sportage. Other major competitors for the consumers "just right-size" dollar are the mechanically similar Hyundai Kona, the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 and Subaru Crosstrek.
