2018 New York International Auto Show - Best In Show

The best slices from the Big Apple auto show pie

After all the hooplah that was the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show earlier in March, the 2018 New York International Auto Show had the unenviable position of playing the following act. Still, New York brought out plenty of good stuff, including a few sporty luxury boats, some slick SUVs, and one very tasty new EV GT concept. Read on for the lowdown on all that and a bag of chips.

2018 Chicago Auto Show – Worst In Show

2018 Chicago Auto Show – Worst In Show

The debuts that left us feeling out in the cold

Truth be told, this year’s Chicago Auto Show brought out a lot of good stuff. We even cataloged the best of the best right here in a convenient list format, just in case you wanted to see what we’re on about. But, given CAS’s positioning between the Detroit Auto Show and Geneva Motor Show, events considered to be two of the most important auto shows in the domestic and international markets respectively, there’s always bound to be a few throwaway debuts in Chi Town. And that’s exactly what we saw in 2018, where the big makes brought out disappointments that included an update which was basically a rehash, plus a pair of yawn-worthy new crossover trim levels. Hell, there was even an entire booth that had us scratching our heads as to why it was there. So put on your troll face and click on as we explore the worst in show at CAS 2018.

2018 Chicago Auto Show – Best In Show

The stuff that blew us away in the Windy City

Tucked between the domestic frenzy that is the Detroit Auto Show and the international insanity of the Geneva Motor Show, the Chicago Auto Show (CAS) is a bit of an oddball on the auto show circuit schedule.

Once again, the automakers have obliged, offering up a healthy selection of debuts for the new year, and in response, we’ve assembled a list of the best from this year’s Chicago Auto Show right here for your enjoyment. In addition to the latest production models and updates, we also threw in some highly desirable upgrades and even a few random old-school rides to ogle along the way. Read on for more.

2018 Detroit Auto Show – Worst In Show

2018 Detroit Auto Show – Worst In Show

The debuts that left us out in the cold

Overall, we’d argue that the 2018 Detroit Auto Show was a success, bringing us a well-rounded package of debuts that catered to just about every automotive taste out there. We saw slick hot hatchbacks like the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N, ground-pounding trucks like the 2019 Ram 1500, and tire-shredding muscle machines like the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, not to mention a few attractive concepts as well. You can read our full list of Best In Show entries here, but as you might expect, not all the debuts were winners this year. Some, in fact, were just awful. As such, we’ve compiled the worst offenders right here for your collective shaming and derision, highlighting back markers such as a poorly executed design study, one of the biggest grilles we’ve ever seen, a haughty European snub, and a few other less-than-exciting reveals.

Granted, a few of these gripes aren’t even about the cars themselves, but rather, the way in which the model was presented. Nit picking? Maybe. Or maybe we’re right on target. Tell us which is which in the comments section below, and don’t forget to post your picks for the worst from Detroit!

New Year's Special: Best Vehicle for Party Hopping

New Year’s Special: Best Vehicle for Party Hopping

Vans, SUVs, wagons, they’re all here

Traditionally, New Year’s is about spending time with family and friends. It’s about social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks at midnight. But some people spend the night traveling from house to house to attend more than just one party. It’s called party hopping, and it can be a great deal of fun if you’re not into spending the entire night indoors. But while spending time with family and friends indoors doesn’t require much planning beyond shopping and cooking, spending New Year’s Eve the party hopping way requires a car. And, a large one I may add because people are usually doing this in larger groups.

Yes, that’s what this New Year’s special is all about: the perfect car to spend New Year’s Eve on the go.

Spending the entire evening on the road with friends means you need a vehicle with plenty of seating. Luggage room shouldn’t be an issue since there’s not much to haul around, but I’m ruling out sports cars and vehicle that can’t provide seating for at least five people. The more, the merrier seems to be the essential rule of party hopping, so don’t look for McLarens and Ferraris on this list. Now let’s have a closer look at the options below.

Thanksgiving Day Special – 7 Cars We're Thankful For

Thanksgiving Day Special – 7 Cars We’re Thankful For

Counting our blessings… and horsepower too

Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of daily life, and in the process, forget about all the good things you’ve got going for you. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on those blessings, providing an opportunity to be grateful for what you have. For us car lovers, 2017 brought all kinds of new stuff to be thankful for, with a bevy of outrageous hypercars to drool over and bench race. As such, we’ve put together a list of cars we’re thankful for right here for your enjoyment.

While 2017 certainly brought the goods in terms of high-end performance, we had to toss in a few other models as well, ya know, just to remind us how truly fortunate we are. And, per usual, we wanna know what cars you’re thankful for. It doesn’t have to be some top-shelf, 250-mph insane-o machine. Perhaps you’re thankful for your trusty daily driver, which reliably ferries you to and fro without issue. Let us know in the comments. And oh yeah – Happy Thanksgiving!

High Rollin': Five Sports Cars You Can Buy For Less Than The Price Of Tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo

High Rollin’: Five Sports Cars You Can Buy For Less Than The Price Of Tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo

Those tires cost $93,000, folks.

Remember the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept? I’m sure most of you do because it’s on the short list of most incredible reveals in 2017. It’s essentially a more hardcore version of the Bugatti Chiron, and there’s only one of its kind in the world. Yes, it’s a legitimate one-of-one. It also happens to be super expensive and in the short life that it’s had, it’s already been owned by two people. Prince Badr bin Saud of Saudi Arabia was the hypercar’s original owner, who bought it from Bugatti for an undisclosed sum that’s rumored to be in the ten-figure range. It didn’t take long, though, for the Vision GT Concept to change owners as the one-off has found its way to the US courtesy of its new owner in Los Angeles.

As important as those things are, I’m here to talk about a startling discovery about the Vision Gran Turismo, and as some of you might expect, that “discovery” is related to its tires. Apparently - prepare to sit down for this one - a new set of tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo costs $93,000. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s $93,000. No typos. No misprints. No nothing. $93,000 for a set of tires.

Granted, it’s not out of the ordinary for the tires of Bugatti’s supercars to fetch insane amounts. A set of brand-new tires for the Veyron, for example, costs around $50,000 and a similar set for the all-new Chiron is actually a bargain at just over $40,000. But the Vision GT Concept trumps both of them, and it’s not even close. The price for a set of new tires for the concept is so preposterous that I’ve actually managed to come up with a list of sports cars that you can buy brand new for less than the price of the Vision GT’s tires. This is the auto world we live in now, folks. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that it’s dripping in absurdity.

Bring Them Back: Five Automakers We Want To See Make A Comeback

Bring Them Back: Five Automakers We Want To See Make A Comeback

How we wish for these auto brands to grace us with their awesomeness once again

The auto industry can be a ruthless business. A handful of automakers have witnessed this first-hand and, far too often, the consequences have been devastating. In the best of cases, a company can weather the storm of mediocrity until it finds its footing again, whether through its own perseverance or simply getting a lifeline in the form of another automaker. Volvo knows this more than anyone now that it’s thriving under Geely ownership after years of uncertainty. That said, not everybody is as lucky as Volvo. Countless automakers have bitten the dust over the years for one reason or another, be it because of managerial ineptitude or simply not being able to keep up with its rivals.

This list is an ode to those companies. It’s made up of automakers whose returns to the industry we pine for to this day. It’s not a guarantee that we’re going to get our wish and see these brands get resurrected, but we can still dream. Either way, there’s nothing to lose as far as wishing upon a star is concerned, right?

Oh, Canada: 8 Cars That Trace Their Roots To The Great White North

Oh, Canada: 8 Cars That Trace Their Roots To The Great White North

You might be surprised at some of the cars on this list

Most of us think of Canada as our friendly neighbors up north, and while that holds true for the most part - Canadians are really friendly - the Great White North also has a rich automotive history of its own. Ok, not as rich as ours, but rich enough to be given a list of some cars that trace their roots up there. The fact is that Canada’s automotive history goes all the way back to around the same time that cars became a thing here in the US. We just don’t know about most of them because there’s enough to worry about as far as our own American brands are concerned.

That’s one of the reasons why this list is being made. Canada is more than just a land of moose and maple leaf syrup. It’s also home to a rich automotive tradition that deserves to have the spotlight fixed in its direction, for however long it’s supposed to last. Some of the names and models on this list will be completely foreign to some of you, but that’s precisely the point. It’s time to give them the recognition they deserve for playing a part in creating and shaping the history of the Canadian auto industry. Oh, and stick until the end because there are some surprises along the way.
