2018 Ferrari Portofino

2018 Ferrari Portofino First Drive Review

It’s about 9,500 miles between the Golden State and a swanky former fishing village on the Italian Riviera known as Portofino, where pastel-painted cottages mix it with celebs and super yachts. For Ferrari, however, it’s a gap of 10 years between the launch of the California, its first front-engined V8 sports car and this, the […]

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Diesel First Test

When we tested the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox last year with its base 1.5-liter gas turbo-four, we came away with mixed feelings. The engine was good, but the transmission frequently wanted to get to the highest gear, kicking you out of the turbo-four’s powerband. Now, we’ve got another 2018 Equinox, this one powered by a 1.6-liter […]

Mazda Skyactiv-X

Mazda Skyactiv-X Review The Revolution Begins With A Squeeze-Bang

The matte black Skyactiv-X prototype looks like a rough Mazda3, perhaps reconstructed after a bad wreck by an over-enthusiastic owner of a spot welder and lots of gaffers’ tape. Ribbed ducts poke out of the dash sending two breaths of conditioned air to no one in particular. Even its revolutionary engine, the thing we’re here […]

2018 Infiniti QX80 4WD

2018 Infiniti QX80 4WD Review: Going Mainstream

While sport utility vehicles come in all shapes and sizes today, none epitomize what an SUV is more than the traditional full-size SUV. The Infiniti QX80 falls into that category and adds a dollop of luxury to sweeten the deal. Built on a truck platform and powered by a V8 engine, it can go places […]

Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo Is Working On A Mild-Hybrid SUV

The flagship SUV that will be the largest Alfa Romeo vehicle, which won’t arrive for two to three years, might not be its thirstiest. That’s because this model reportedly will be the first from the brand to offer a hybrid setup—one that should boost performance as well. The news comes from Alfa Romeo chief technical […]

Bentley Bentayga

Bentley Bentayga To Add Gasoline V8 Before Plug-In Hybrid Powertrains Bows

The Bentley Bentayga offers exactly one powertrain in the US: a 6.0 liter W12 with 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Overseas buyers get the additional option of a 4.0 liter diesel V8 with 429 hp and 664 lb-ft – the same oil burner from the Audi SQ7, denied us after Volkswagen Group pulled […]

2018 Jaguar XF

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake First Drive Review

With Jaguar now offering consumers two SUVs and an all-electric crossover arriving in the next few months, the idea of a Jaguar station wagon is not as shockingly iconoclastic as it was when the X-Type Sportwagon arrived in the U.S. back in 2005. Indeed, the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake almost seems almost mundane. Mainstream, even. […]
