Tags: , ,

The mid-engine Corvette was perhaps the most anticipated car of the past decade, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a V8-powered, mid-engine sports car with nearly 500 horsepower and 470 pound feet of torque, a dual-clutch transmission and head-turning looks, all for under $60K when it was released. You’d be hard-pressed to find that kind of performance bargain anywhere else. As good as the price was, winning one from Omaze sounds even better. Here are Read More »

Chevy already gave us a glimpse of the upcoming Equinox EV’s exterior and interior design, but now we get to see the inside again in video form and exclusively in its LT trim.

2022 Mercedes C-Class First Drive Review | Junior suite Benz

Posted in REVIEWS on May 16, 2022

Sedans have become the Jan Brady of automobiles. They’re overlooked and underappreciated, as consumers lavish firstborn attention on SUVs, or coo over the latest electric babies. So when the all-new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class was announced, the news didn’t exactly light the world on fire. But now that I’ve driven the standard C 300, I feel a bit guilty for overlooking its significance, at least for SUV refusniks determined to keep their feet and seat closer Read More »
