I Put 2,300 Miles On A New Honda Gold Wing And Now I Dig Dual-Clutch Motorcycles

The Honda Gold Wing has a reputation as an old rider’s bike, a plush and ponderous road couch for those who’ve finally unbent their beat-up bodies and settled onto something more accommodating to creaky knees and sore backs. But that doesn’t mean you have to be one step away from a rocking chair to appreciate it.…

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR Is A 550 HP Captive Beast Screaming Into The Abyss

I’m not really sure who the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR is for. The thing’s a snarling powerhouse, it’s not bad looking and it can dance if you’re looking to explore your limits. There’s a lot of angry energy bottled up in the body of this modestly-sized crossover.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST Needs To Be Sharper Or Cheaper

The 2019 Ford Edge ST is certainly quicker than its more pedestrian stablemates, but it lacks the raw performance capabilities of its smaller, more famous cousins, the Focus ST and the Fiesta ST. As a more-exciting-than-stock family car, it does just fine, even if the asking price is a little stiff.

The Acura CSX Type-S Was The Weird Civic Si America Never Got

You probably think the best Honda Civic to ever wear the Acura badge was the Integra. After all, the Civic-derived Integra GS-R and Type-R that followed it still rank today as the top front-drive sport compacts ever built. Actually, though, the most interesting Acura Civic (this may get confusing) was not the Integra…

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator Is A Glorious Return To American Opulence

We never had kings or queens here in America. (Well, we did before we were our own country, but we showed those fools what we really thought of them.) If we did, though, they’d all be driving 2019 Lincoln Navigators. The car is flush with splendor, rich with opulence and brings back the lavishness that was sorely…

The 475-HP Dodge Durango SRT Is A Muscle Truck That’s Ready To Haul

“Does it shit and git?” a rally crew member from another team asked me after I rolled up to my hotel in a burbling and strikingly green 2019 Dodge Durango SRT. “What…yes? I think so,” I replied.

Why I Actually Prefer The BMW Z4 To The 2020 Toyota Supra

Toyota says the 2020 Supra feels different to drive than its mechanical twin, the 2020 BMW Z4 M40i. Actually, since the start, both carmakers have been hammering about how distinguished each car is, telling us they went off their own separate ways once the shared architecture was laid out.

Of All Truck-Looking SUVs The Kia Telluride Feels The Least Truckish

I didn’t have much time with the 2020 Kia Telluride, but a few laps around town was enough to notice that it feels very low and long from the driver’s seat, much more so than any other truck-looking SUV I’ve been in lately. It’s the most disparate vehicle on a scale of “looks like a truck, feels like a car” I’ve…

The 2019 Ford Ranger Isn’t the Ranger You Remember, but It’s Good at What It Does

The Ford Ranger seems to strike a personal chord with pretty much everybody in America; I remember being crammed into the jump seats of my dad’s as a kid. When the “return” of the truck in the form of the 2019 Ford Ranger was announced, people reacted like it was going to be personally delivered by God himself. Now…

Here Are the Cars Jalopnik Is Thankful For 

It’s not hard to guess what we’re thankful for: the continuing improvement of our dear Andrew Collins following his spill, my current total lack of cancer and Patrick George finally taking his first steps towards transitioning into a Bavarian super villain. Truly, the Jalopnik gang is hashtag-blessed. But the thing…
