NP or CP: Jaguar XE NP or CP: Jaguar XE

In another instance of why are these so cheap, like the Maserati before it, behold the Jaguar XE, Jag’s supposed 3 Series fighter. They are CHEAP, cheaper than comparable vehicles. Lets look at 2 examples for NP or CP.

Is it possible to get locked inside an ELR? I guess so, because I just got off the phone with a member, a senior woman, who was locked inside. Claims she was suffocating. I know the ELR has those weird button door releases. The biggest question though, and shows why I hate people, is why the hell is she calling us and …

CT6-V's are being listed for sale. Except they're not CT6-V's are being listed for sale. Except they're not

So checking online on Cargurus, you will find that nationwide there are 23 listed for sale. I found that to be interesting, so I emailed 10 of those 23 dealers. Turns out none of them are actually for sale. They are presold orders. So why list them?

The build and price is finally live for the 2020 XT6. Seen as a much needed model for Cadillac, it’s bigger than the XT5 but smaller than the Escalade and seats 7. Here’s the pricing breakdown.

I checked 8 different local dealers. And its looking like you cant find a 2020 Gladiator under 45k right now. Who knows how many of these have ADM’s (markups)on them. Most in stock though range from the mid to high 50's. The most expensive one? The one here at Huntington Beach Jeep. A Gladiator Rubicon listed for…

The SUV/crossover madness continues at VW The SUV/crossover madness continues at VW

Automakers seem to be running out of ideas. Case in point: Multiple outlets are reporting about the forth coming VW Atlas CrossSport. A new model based on an existing model, it amounts to nothing more than a less usable Atlas sans the 3 row and a rakish roofline for less head room. Confirmed to C&D to be debuting the…

Its worst than we thought: here's the Buick Encore GX Its worst than we thought: here's the Buick Encore GX

After reveling the new smaller Trailblazer yesterday, somehow Jalopnik forgot to show how deep the crossover stupidity goes. Behold the Buick Encore GX. “But Buick already has the Encore” you say? Nope. This has nothing to do with the current one. Its a new platform shared with the Traileblazer (I was wondering what…

I finally drove a Genesis G70. It was fantastic. I finally drove a Genesis G70. It was fantastic.

First off, I’d like to give props to my local Hyundai/Genesis dealer for the fantastic service. I’m not just saying this either. Every single time I go this place it is wonderful. I was even more elated to find out that the dealership was Black owned. While this may not be a big deal to some, that’s a big deal to me…

I literally just hung up with a member. He’s stranded on the side of the freeway in his ‘18 F-Pace. Has less than 15 thousand miles on it. Probably less than that. Said it lost all power while he was driving and an engine performance affected light came on. He’s currently being towed to the local Jaguar dealership in…

Genesis is phasing out the Tau V8 Genesis is phasing out the Tau V8

In yet another instance of an automaker downsizing, Car & Driver reports that with the coming next gen G80, it wont offer the 5 liter engine on any trim level. Instead the range topping engine will be a turbo V6. Genesis CEO Manfred Fitzgerald pretty much confirmed this. The G90 will solider on with the V8 for a few…

The Dodge Challengers seat belts are proof that we almost got a convertible version The Dodge Challengers seat belts are proof that we almost got a convertible version

Let’s be honest: it would be nice to have a convertible that actually had room for the family. But right now the only options for something like that would be to spend big money and go for something like an S Class convertible or even higher than that with a Rolls Royce or something. There aren’t any sedan based…

Forgotten Cars: Suzuki Verona Forgotten Cars: Suzuki Verona

Only produced for 2 measly model years, the Suzuki Verona was an oddity of sorts. Born of the aftermath of the bankruptcy of Daewood going under because of over $10 billion dollars in debt, it was born of GM forming a new company over the remains called GMDAT (GM Daewoo Auto & Technology). It was supposed to be a…

Its only available in Nevada, Missouri and Minnesota. And its not cheap. Like at all. With a $250 enrollment fee, pricing is $1499/month. You sign up on line…

All new for 2020, M finally got around to the X3 and X4 giving them the beat treatment. Effectively they are same vehicle (the X4 is essentially an X3 with less head and cargo room. A baby X6, and not in a good way). Here’s the pricing

The Gladiator placed 3rd out of 4th in a comparison! The Gladiator placed 3rd out of 4th in a comparison!

You read that right. The bro peoples savior was second too last in a Car&Driver comparison against the Ranger FX4 (4th), Ridgeline RTL-E (2nd) and the Colorado Z71 (1st). The reason? They said its long wheelbase makes it not really suited for offroad, where its frame bottomed out on them a few times (they called it a…
