2018 Jeep Wrangler

2018 Jeep Wrangler

“Iconic” is kind of an overused term these days, but in the case of the Jeep Wrangler, it’s totally appropriate. The Wrangler is a direct descendant of a bloodline that goes back farther than most any modern-day vehicle can claim. The star-spangled WWII heritage, the long-running (and tumultuous) history, the unmistakable profile and styling details, and, of course, the formidable off-road capabilities—it’s all part of the mix.

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Consumer Guide Automotive

Whether by deft planning or stroke of luck, Mitsubishi has found itself in an enviable marketing position.

With the introduction of the new Eclipse Cross compact crossover slated for next spring – and the dropping of the electric i-MiEV and long-running Lancer sedan – Mitsubishi will be fielding a lineup of three crossovers and one car line (the slow-selling Mirage) for 2018. That puts the bulk of its wares in the hot-selling “small crossover” segment.

1986 Oldsmobile Toronado

General Motors can lay claim to two of the most noteworthy examples of automotive downsizing. On the success side is the Impala/Caprice redesign for 1977. Leaner and more fuel efficient, the downsized big Chevys found the proverbial market sweet spot, and sold like crazy to full-size-car shoppers looking for something trimmer than they had been driving (but not too trim).
