2019 Ram 1500

2019 Ram 1500

Consumer Guide Automotive It’s almost an accolade that the Ram 1500 pickup, last redesigned more than a decade ago, has continued to hold its own against far newer rivals. And now, with the redesigned Ram hitting the streets shortly as a 2019 model, those rivals could have even more to worry about.

2019 Volvo XC40

Consumer Guide Automotive If you think of Volvo as autodom’s safe but slightly stodgy Swede, think again; the company’s new XC40 compact crossover just might be enough to alter your perception.

2018 Tahoe RST

2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST

Consumer Guide Automotive

Chevrolet’s extra-large SUVs can get a bit more attitude for 2018 with the addition of the RST Edition package. Available on both Tahoes and Suburbans, the RST (for “Rally Sport Truck”) appearance package brings a body-color grille surround and door handles in place of chrome, as well as blacked-out mirror caps, grille, window-trim, badging, and roof rails. The finishing touch is a set of exclusive 22-inch wheels on Bridgestone tires.

2018 Nissan Leaf

Consumer Guide Automotive

As the first mass-market electric car to be sold by a major manufacturer, the original Nissan Leaf was a landmark vehicle. And it only gets better with its 2018 redesign.

2018 Jeep Wrangler

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Consumer Guide Automotive

“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 legendary off-road prowess—it’s all part of the mix.

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

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.

2018 Hyundai Accent

2018 Hyundai Accent Limited

Consumer Guide Automotive

The subcompact-car market isn’t anywhere near as hot as the subcompact-SUV category these days, but there is still activity afoot. The segment’s biggest news for 2018 is the introduction of two redesigned contenders from South Korea—the Kia Rio and the Hyundai Accent. Both of these vehicles are built on the same basic platform; we’ll be driving the new Rio in the near future, and we just got our first taste of the new Accent.

2018 Dodge Demon

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Consumer Guide Automotive It’s all about the launch.

That was the lesson we learned when Dodge invited a group of journalists up to US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, to pilot its new Challenger SRT Demon down a gen-u-ine drag strip – complete with burn-out box, gooey starting-line surface, staging lights, and a full quarter-mile run. The real deal. Personally, it was the first time I’d ever driven a car on a drag strip … at least, one that didn’t have center stripes and a grossly ignored speed-limit sign (don’t tell the feds). We also learned that getting the launch right is not nearly as easy as one might think.

2018 Honda Accord

Consumer Guide Automotive Although consumer sentiment has shifted to crossovers of late, midsize sedans still account for a sizable chunk of automotive sales. And for more than two decades, Honda’s Accord has accounted for a sizable chunk of the midsize market.
