    Review: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic
    1408377600

    Luxury Bruiser Loves To Run, Hates To Dawdle Let us pause as I toss a Kleenex to the owners of Mercedes-Benz's $204,500 S600 and $249,500 S65 AMG models. The quickest S-Class is not fitted with a twin-turbocharged V12 driving its rear wheels. Instead, that honour goes to this $167,400 (the ...

    First Drive: 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco R
    1407513600

    Germany's automakers seem to get their jollies by watching us scratch our heads. Instead of sticking to traditional automotive bodystyles, they've been deliberately blurring the lines between them and inventing new terminology with which to classify their creations. So we're left with low-slung ...

    First Drive: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe
    1407427200

    Save for a few years of its century-plus existence, Cadillac has offered its unique brand of American elegance in two-door, fixed-roof bodystyles. Most of these cars were big, floaty barges, of course, though its most recent offering was the wedge-shaped CTS Coupe. But whereas the CTS Coupe was a ...

    First Drive: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
    1407340620

    It ain't easy being the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Up until now, the compact luxury sedan has had a tough job description: offer sufficient driving dynamics to allow it to compete with the lauded BMW 3 Series, while also serving as the lowest cost of entry into the coveted Mercedes-Benz portfolio. ...

    First Drive: 2015 Acura TLX
    1407254400

    Immediately after landing at Washington's Dulles airport, an Acura representative handed me the keys to a 2014 TSX with fewer than 300 kilometres on its clock. The four-cylinder engine started and I pointed its signature beak towards a destination in Middleburg, VA. It was a curious move by the ...

    First Drive: 2015 Cadillac Escalade
    1406908800

    The fourth-generation 2015 Cadillac Escalade is among the most important new Cadillacs since the division's renaissance kicked into high gear. It's clearly the brand's de facto flagship vehicle, and the first thing many people think of when hearing the name "Cadillac." Leading up to the debut of ...

    First Drive: 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Power Stroke
    1406736000

    What weighs 30,000 pounds (13,600 kilograms)? Big Ben's Westminster bell. A navy ship anchor. Or as we found out during our first drive program for the 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty, seven pallets of cinder blocks loaded onto a dual-axle gooseneck trailer. The test was part of a raft of towing ...

    First Drive: 2016 Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Prototype [w/video]
    1406563020

    It only takes about half a lap of the Millbrook Proving Grounds for me to become convinced that Infiniti must build this car. The sedan I am piloting around the English circuit is a working prototype of the Q50 Eau Rouge Concept that made its world debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show earlier ...

    First Drive: 2015 Ford Expedition
    1406304000

    While the tide of bigger-is-better SUVs has been in recession since, well, the recession, fullsize utes are still very much with us. Conservative creatures that have been loathe to evolve, fullsize SUVs nonetheless remain enduringly popular among large families, livery customers, and anyone with ...
