  • Kia Telluride Luggage Test | How much fits behind the third row?

    Although my experience on the Kia Telluride first drive plus Zac Palmer's Telluride-vs-Enclave luggage test pointed to the ultra-popular three-row crossover being a luggage-lugging champ, I haven't had the opportunity to test it here at Luggage Test Headquarters in Portland. On paper, the Telluride has 21 cubic feet back there, which compares to the 16-to-18 range of most rival crossovers. First off, maybe there's a bit more depth than normal, and the Telluride's slightly boxier shape might help it in this endeavor.

  • 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet Road Test Review | The supercar as defined by the 911

    If you can afford a supercar, do you want it to be a Porsche 911? Short of the race-bred GT3 line, the Turbos are as much Porsche 911 as anyone could ever desire. The high performance efficacy of the Turbo S comes from the 3.7-liter boxer six-cylinder, which produces a stunning 60 hp more than the previous generation.

  • 2021 Ford Bronco Manual Off-Road Review | Creeping with the crawler gear

    We finally got to share our 2021 Ford Bronco review this week, and we're here to offer you another course of horse. Ford brought along a so-equipped Black Diamond model in Cactus Grey over steel wheels, like the one pictured above, only with four doors instead of two as pictured, inviting participants to fight over it. It's appropriate that the British idiom "at sixes and sevens" refers to a state of confusion, because Ford's stick-shift is a tad unconventional for a road car.

  • 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Interior Storage Review | Rolling backpack

    If you haven't already read Byron Hurd's Ford Bronco review, do so now, and come on back here for a deep dive inside the Bronco's baby brother. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport you see here is an Outer Banks trim, the version that skews a bit more to the luxury end of the spectrum. Although the general feature content and materials quality isn't that different from a Ford Escape, the Bronco Sport really sets it apart from its corporate cousin and other compact crossovers with its many clever storage solutions throughout.

  • 2021 BMW M3 Competition versus the Indiana Nürburgring

    Buried in southern Indiana is this long, patched-together lap of squiggly, fun roads. Drawn together on a map, the resulting shape resembles the Nürburgring — seriously, check it out. The green forest crowds either side of the winding pavement, like the Nürburgring.

  • 2021 Lexus GX 460 Interior Review | A competent cabin ... a decade ago

    The Lexus GX 460 is really old. This generation of the GX launched for the 2010 model year, and it's mostly received cosmetic updates in the decade since. Climbing aboard the GX welcomes the driver and front passenger with broad, thickly cushioned chairs wrapped in soft leather.
