The 2019 Cadillac XT4 Tries Really Hard to Be a Fun Car

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is late to the game. It is only Cadillac’s third crossover entry on Day 6,419 of the SUV/crossover onslaught and comes at a time when probably most of Cadillac’s competitors are far ahead in the Big Cars race. So it’s got some catching up to do. Fortunately, it’s a luxury crossover with an…

The 2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Is the Perfect Mix of Ordinary and Revolutionary

There is no denying the 2018 Tesla Model 3's importance. It is intended to be Tesla’s volume-seller, the car that will hopefully make luxury electric cars more accessible to more people, especially when the long-promised $35,000 version hits the market. It is the key to Tesla’s future, the source of many of its

The 2018 Range Rover Velar Rolls Like Royalty and Attracts as Much Attention

While the 2018 Range Rover Velar S did not make me feel like the King of New York City, as I had hoped, I did feel like at least maybe the Duke of my neighborhood. You know, still getting plenty of attention, but not too much, while having all of the benefits of being born into a world of no real responsibility. It…

What Do You Want To Know About the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T? 

Because I simply have not had enough seat time in various Porsches this summer, I’ve got the 2018 911 Carrera T. It’s the lighter-weight, not as hardcore, very slightly easier on the bank account version of the 991.2, and I’ve tasked myself with seeing how this package really comes together.

Driving the Perfect Ford Bronco Was a Religious Experience

The square-framed round-light’d face of a 1966 Ford Bronco is as classic and commanding of respect as Nick Offerman’s facial hair. The whole design is a tribute to freedom. This one, decorated with dents and revived with a healthy V8 engine, accomplishes something few customized cars ever do: it just freaking feels…

What Do You Want to Know About the 2018 Tesla Model 3?

Up until this point, we’ve only driven the Tesla Model 3 in short bursts. And we’ve liked it very much. Now, it’s time to see what it’s like to live with for a longer-term test. We have a Model 3 Long Range for the weekend. What do you want to know about it?

The 2018 Ford Fiesta ST is Even More Fun Than The Focus RS

Remember how great the lively little Ford Fiesta ST was? Then remember how Ford decided to stop selling small cars in America? That sucked. And it’s going to suck more when you realize the new, 200 horsepower Fiesta ST—which you Americans cannot buy—takes what the old car did and builds on it in the best possible way.

What Do You Want to Know About the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt?

Lots of love for electric vehicles on Jalopnik lately. First a quick drive of the Tesla Model 3 Performance (a full week-long test of the regular one is coming soon) and now we find ourselves in the Chevrolet Bolt until the end of the week. What do you want to know about it?

The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Everything You Want It to Be

Does Bullitt still matter? Fifty years since it came out, is the detective thriller—oozing with Steve McQueen’s quiet, simmering brand of cool and famous for its groundbreaking centerpiece car chase scene—relevant to the young buyers the Ford Mustang once had a monopoly on? After a hot lap of San Francisco in the 2019…

The 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet Is the Best Way to Kill Hypercars and Get a Tan

When you look at the last few batches of headline-grabbing McLarens, Lamborghinis and Porsches, they’ve had one thing to offer: lap times. Nürburgring records. Extreme track performance. I say unto you now: who actually gives a shit? One of the best and fastest cars I’ve ever driven is the 580 horsepower 2018 Porsche…
