We drive the Ford Focus ST
  by Ali Arsham
The hot hatchback is probably the best car category out there.  There is nothing quite as satisfying as a small and lightweight performance car with room for lots of people and cargo.  Yes, you can buy an exotic supercar that costs as much as a house but it is much more difficult to produce a good performance car for under $25,000. That is where the Ford Focus ST really shines.  It is an amazingly fun car that would be a bargain at twice its price. We got our hands on a beautiful example and fell in love instantly.
World premiere of the FXX K hybrid track car
  at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Abu Dhabi
Ferrari's new FXX K research and development program receives its world premiere next weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The laboratory-car is based on Maranello's first hybrid model and will grace the world's tracks from next year onwards. The K in its moniker is a reference to the "KERS" kinetic energy recovery system it adopts in maximizing its track performance.
We drive the Nissan Rogue SL AWD
  by Ali Arsham
First introduced for the 2008 model year, the Nissan Rogue has become a key player in the highly competitive compact SUV market - addressing both the functional and emotional needs of buyers while offering great value. Now, with a complete redesign for the 2014 model year, the Rogue has grown up.
The Amazing 162-MPH Nuremberg Daytona
  by Stephen Cox
It was the mid 1970's. NASCAR's aerodynamic supercars were a thing of the past. The great American muscle car had succumbed to a slow death, strangled by illegal government regulations and an absurd 55 mile per hour speed limit. The US auto industry fell into its own Dark Age and would not emerge for another 20 years. But in Nuremberg, Germany, a small band of merry rebels picked up where America left off.
The New Audi A6: Finally A Rival For The BMW 5 Series
  by Luke Peters
The brand new Audi A6 is a true return to form. The 2014 model has built on the disappointment of its predecessors. It has been reintroduced this year and is back to the top of the class. For a long time, the BMW 5 series dominated the market for this type of executive car. However, with the Audi A6, there is finally some competition.
Cadillac ATS-V Expands Lineup, Intensifies Passion
  First Twin Turbo V-Series delivers track-capable driving experience
Cadillac today introduced the 2016 ATS-V, expanding the acclaimed ATS product range and elevating the brand's elite high-performance V-Series to its next generation.

2015 Chevy Volt to have extended EV range
  All-new Voltec extended range electric vehicle (EREV) propulsion system
When the next-generation Chevrolet Volt debuts at the North American International Auto Show in January, it will feature an all-new Voltec extended range electric vehicle (EREV) propulsion system substantially developed from Volt owners including data collected on their driving behaviors. The Voltec system includes the battery, drive unit, range-extending engine and power electronics. The new system will be more efficient and offer greater EV range and fuel economy compared to the current generation.
Leading scientists describe future auto propulsion
  Can you say electric!
By 2050, most vehicles will need to be electrically propelled, with a battery to store energy or an on-board hydrogen fuel cell to generate electricity, if emission targets set by governments are to be met. That's the conclusion of an expert team responsible for penning Towards Sustainable Road Transport published by Elsevier. The three authors are senior research chemists who have spent their professional careers working in the fields of energy and electrochemistry. More than 300 pages packed with information describe the growth and technical development of road vehicles during the 20th century, and the state-of-the-art power sources and advanced vehicle designs now needed to meet the 80 per cent reduction required in global emissions over the next 35 years, and needed to protect the next generation.
Electric vehicles win MPG contest with zero pollution
  Handwriting is on the wall for gasoline powered cars
The electric vehicles taking part in this year's MPG Marathon demonstrated how cost effective and reliable they were by completing the course in virtually the same time as their competitors – but by using less energy and with no pollution. Three electric vehicles took part for the first time in the 23-team eco-driving event, which was again sponsored by ALD Automotive and TRACKER and was won by Honda engineers Fergal McGrath and James Warren, driving a Honda Civic Tourer and recording an outstanding 97.92mpg.
Is Citroen Set To Make A Return To The US?
  by Luke Peters
The French car maker Citroen is in something of a state of flux at the moment. The PSA Peugeot Citroen Group that owns the company is reshuffling Citroen's model lineup. As part of that process, Citroen is making its DS luxury car brand an independent company. For those of you familiar with Citroen's long and rich history, the last time Citroen sold a car in the United States was back in 1972. The company stopped selling cars here in the US because of strict auto regulations.
We drive the 2014 Ram 3500 High Output Diesel
  by Ali Arsham
Let's pretend that you wanted to move a very heavy load up a very long and steep hill. What vehicle would you use? We were at that point and selected a Dodge Ram 3500 dually for the job. Then we loaded it up and headed for the hills to see how it would perform and the results were amazing.
We drive the Fiat 500e
  by Ali Arsham
Leave it to the Italians to add style and performance to an electric car. The Fiat 500e was a pleasant surprise for us and we hated to see it go away. Most electric cars have the personality of a banana and can even be less fun to drive. The Fiat 500e delivered a terrific driving experience with 87 mile range in a good looking package during its stay with us.
