The 2021 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickup hog mollies are back this year—how could you miss them? Mechanically related to the Chevrolet Silverado HD twins, the GMC versions are comparatively a little more rock ‘n’ roll. New this year are versions of the pickup that take it further off-road (X31) and take it further into

A new face and improved tech are just the start for the 2021 Audi Q5. As the automaker’s ‘tweener crossover between the smaller (but still big) Q3 and bigger (and even bigger) three-row Q7, the Q5 is a segue to electrification-curious shoppers, and even some performance-leaning shoppers. Blunter: The 2021 Q5 needs to do a

Succinct as it is accurate, “It’s a Subaru” pretty well describes the 2021 Subaru Ascent three-row crossover SUV. All-wheel drive? Check. Horizontally opposed engine? Yup. Room for people and gear? Uh-huh. Hard-wearing interior? Sure. The 2021 Subaru Ascent soldiers into the new year with minimal changes on what’s been a reliable formula so far. The

A Lexus coupe or convertible might be the best way to take a hammer to that ginormous change jug or piggy bank you’ve had going since elementary school. An 84-month loan would be OK, too, we guess. For less than $100,000, the 2021 Lexus LC has all the standard touches expected from a car that

Cadillac learned from the mistakes of the ATS and CTS by equipping the 2020 CT4 with plenty of standard features at an impressive starting price of $33,990. That’s taking a page from the Genesis playbook. No fool, Cadillac takes a separate page from the Germans by offering options and packages that can easily total more

As luxury brands issue new SUVs with abandon, cars like the 2020 Lincoln MKZ get overlooked.  With the MKZ Lincoln still offers a solid value in premium sedans, one with potent powertrains. But the MKZ’s interior never has shone, and it never delivered on the promise so extravagantly on display in Lincolns from the Aviator

The latest Aviator rides on a new rear-drive architecture that promises deft handling to go with its prodigious twin-turbo power. Weight and height get in the way of its loftiest goals, but the Aviator’s still blessed with good composure. We give it a 6 for performance. Both Aviators tap a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 for power.

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair wants for few features, but the crossover can have a spit-take high price in top trims.  The Corsair is available in Standard and Reserve trim levels with a handful of option packages scattered among the two. Base cars cost $36,940, including destination, while top models can crest $60,000.  Every Corsair gets

The 2020 Lincoln Nautilus is well-equipped in base form, and lavish at the top end, but you’ll have to decide if top trims are worth the price of entry. We give it 9 out of 10 for features, service coverage, and infotainment. The Nautilus comes in three trims for 2020 instead of four like last

The 2020 Tesla Model 3 sedan was never going to be palatial, but we can’t help but be disappointed by the lapses in material and build quality. Those flaws cancel out the roomy cabin and comfortable seats, bringing our total score to a 4 out of 10.  Appropriate for a car that sells on efficiency,

With its sharp and intuitive 17-inch touchscreen, regular over-the-air updates, and standard premium interior, the 2020 Model X has enough exclusive features to satisfy buyers who prefer the bleeding edge of technology. We give it an 8 out of 10 for features. For the most part, what you see with the Model X is what

Available in five trim levels—Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature—the Mazda 6 ranges from less than $25,000 to more than $35,000 at the top of the range (including a mandatory destination charge). We give it 6 out of 10 here, as the base model misses a key feature or two, but the

The 2020 Titan’s appeal will be its generous standard equipment (compared to other base full-size trucks) and generous incentives awaiting most buyers.  That said, it’s well-equipped and stacked with a generous warranty. This year’s improvements add a larger touchscreen to most trucks, automatic emergency braking to all trucks, and good features. The 2020 Titan is

Like a featherweight champion, the 2020 Subaru BRZ proves lighter and smaller can sometimes be superior. Sports cars haven’t always been about power and prestige. In another era, light weight and balance reigned over horsepower. The 2020 Subaru BRZ throws back to that era, and impresses with its sharp moves and looks, though the diminutive
