Aston Martin isn’t expected to deliver its third hypercar until late 2021, but it’s already giving us a sneak peek. Here is our first glimpse at the mid-engine coupe codenamed Project 003. On social media, Aston Martin posted a picture of the car’s back end. Since the post is captioned “The wait is nearly over,”

Ford’s heavy-duty truck gets a thorough update for 2020. Not only does it receive two new engines, but it also gets a 10-speed automatic transmission and chassis upgrades. Plus, Ford is boosting towing and payload capability to keep up with the competition. We know that design ranks pretty far down the list of important characteristics

Since the first one rolled off the assembly line in late 1983, Fiat Chrysler has sold more than 14.6 million minivans. And even though other automakers now sell minivans of their own, FCA claimed a 55-percent market share last year. To celebrate those accomplishments, FCA created 35th Anniversary Edition versions of the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan. View

The first-generation Porsche Cayenne—you remember, the vehicle that purists said would be the death knell for Stuttgart—rode on a platform engineered by Porsche, and it was incredible. Honest-to-goodness sporty handling and mountain goat–like off-road-ability. The similar-vintage first-gen Volkswagen Touareg was built on the same platform, and I can’t remember driving a machine that felt more

Barrett-Jackson has claimed its largest-grossing Scottsdale auction in the company’s history this year, raking in a total of $131.6 million in vehicle and memorabilia sales over the week-long auction. Over 1,800 vehicles traded hands, representing more than $118 million and a sell-through rate of over 99 percent, helped along by Barrett-Jackson’s no-reserve policy on most

As with its exterior styling, the 718 Cayman weaves Porsche’s current design language into its cabin design, too. Analog gauges lend a more traditional vibe to the interior, but the 7.0-inch touchscreen integrated into the center stack makes it clear this is a modern Porsche.

We fell in love with the sporty style and sharp handling of Jaguar’s F-Pace at our 2017 SUV of the Year competition, but a starchy ride and polarizing interior torpedoed it from the top spot. Still, we had to know what a yearlong jag with this all-new Jag would be like. Could we deal with

BMW offers a pretty wide range of utility vehicles, from big to small, V-8s to plug-in hybrids, and even crossover coupes. But there remains one major hole in the lineup: a full-size SUV. The 2019 BMW X7 will make a belated entrance into this highly lucrative segment when it goes on sale in the U.S.

Traditionally, Mercedes-Benz’s attempts at building entry-luxury cars have been middling at best. The CLA, its most recent indiscretion, came with a frustrating dual-clutch transmission and a plasticky interior. But Mercedes’ suboptimal reputation might soon change with its A-Class sedan. Intended to be Mercedes’ newest bargain-basement model and slotting beneath the CLA, the A-Class sedan is

I don’t envy the engineers and designers who endlessly toil on new vehicle development. In a perfect world, these passionate and talented men and women would have all the money and time in the world to do the job right. Instead, they’re beholden to managers and shareholders—those looking out for production schedules and the bottom

This is a tricky driving impression to write. That’s because considerable engineering might has been expended to make the feature we’re here to focus on as unnoticeable as possible. That feature is a 48-volt mild-hybrid system sold by the name eTorque. It’s a pretty unsexy fuel saver that may prove to be a tough sell

It seems like Honda launched the current-generation Pilot yesterday, but given the competitiveness of the midsize SUV segment, it’s not surprising that the three-row SUV is already receiving updates. The 2019 Honda Pilot received a host of changes—from an improved nine-speed transmission to a new infotainment system with CabinTalk and CabinControl, and updated styling—designed to

The front struts feature new internal hydraulic rebound stops that dramatically increase the damping force in both directions near the top of the travel (the old internal rebound springs stored energy as the body rose and released it on the way back down, skewing the effective damping rates). The rear shocks include a similar function

I was starting to get worried. No, it had nothing to do with the surprisingly difficult off-road trail our prototype 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 was crawling over. We’ll get to that, but suffice to say, the GLE handled it fine. My concern was that I couldn’t find anything wrong with the GLE, even this camo’d-up
