(January 11, 2022) It’s been a couple of years since we last drove and reviewed the Toyota 4Runner. After spending a week with the new 2022 4Runner 4x4 TRD Sport recently, it’s abundantly clear that a lot remains wrong with this dinosaur of a vehicle. Still, there’s something about it that gets you hooked and becomes addictive. That might explain why there are so many on the road, and it’s been a Toyota mainstay for nearly 40 years.

(December 26, 2021) There’s no question that Cadillac utility vehicles — XT4, XT5, XT6 and flagship Escalade — are the brand’s cash cows as consumers flock to them, foregoing traditional sedans. So why has Cadillac just released two new high-performance super sedans designed to take on the powerhouse four-door brutes from BMW and Mercedes? It’s simple – it builds brand awareness and showroom traffic.

(December 21, 2021) The Taos is Volkswagens newest small crossover, almost a foot shorter, but extremely close in size to the Tiguan, sharing the same platform. In the Volkswagen hierarchy of crossovers, it sits at the bottom of the now five-crossover lineup, with the Atlas at the top. Although, a case could be made that the dazzling new all-electric ID.4 might hold that position, depending on your perspective.

That’s years after competitors like Tesla S, Porsche Taycan, Jaguar iPace and Audi e-tron were introduced.

(November 21, 2021) Infiniti, the luxury brand of Nissan products, has introduced a new crossover utility vehicle: the QX55. For those who think the QX55 is the sloped-roof offspring of the QX50 compact crossover, well, you would be partially correct. With a striking exterior design that features a bulging hood, swooping roofline and sharply styled rear end and LED piano key taillamps, the boldly sculpted QX55 borrows styling cues from the mid-sized Infiniti FX model that first appeared for the 2003 model year and continued until it bid farewell in 2013.
