Longest Lasting Vehicles

2019 GMC Yukon

Is 200,000 miles the new 100,000 miles? Maybe not, but the number of vehicles reaching the 200,000-mile mark seems to be on the rise. According to the analysts at vehicle-retail site iSeeCars.com, just under one percent of all cars, crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks will go that distance–presumably to the delight of their owners.

One of the best perks of my job is visiting on-air with WGN radio host Nick Digilio as a guest of The Nick Digilio Show. A fixture of Chicago overnight radio, Nick’s show is a late-night entertainment oasis in a sea of repetitive news, pre-recorded political blather, and infomercials.

2019 Honda Passport

2019 Honda Passport

Consumer Guide Automotive Frankly, it seems Honda got caught with its pants down.

As the market made its seismic shift to crossovers, the company continued to concentrate on cars, adding but one entry of the crossover variety in the past 15 years. As a result, today’s Honda lineup of 10 vehicles contains only three crossovers.

Oh, the shame.

LA-Auto-Show-LogoHonda has the compact SUV class capably covered with its CR-V, and its Pilot SUV is a solid competitor in the three-row midsize SUV category. However, two-row, five-passenger SUVs are also a very popular market segment, and Honda didn’t have a product offering there to compete directly against rivals such as the Ford Edge and the just-redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe. That changes with the introduction of the 2019 Honda Passport, which is being unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Most Fuel Efficient Crossovers

It wasn’t that long ago that the typical family-oriented passenger car was notably more fuel-efficient than the average SUV. Today, the efficiency gap between the two vehicle types is much smaller than it used to be. Crossover SUVs–those based on passenger-car chassis instead of truck-like body-on-frame architectures–have proliferated, and many new SUV models have gotten smaller and lighter while still retaining an extra degree of cargo room and functionality over their comparable passenger-car counterparts.

2019 Honda Pilot

Consumer Guide Automotive Honda’s popular midsize crossover has long been a Consumer Guide Best Buy, and revisions to the freshened 2019 Pilot only serve to make it better.

As this is a “refresh” and not a redesign, the Pilot platform and appearance haven’t changed much. Oh, the grille is different – taking on what Honda deems as a “more rugged” demeanor to reflect Pilot’s admittedly good off-road prowess – but the vehicle still looks and drives like a Pilot … which is just fine.

$300 Car Payments, Crossovers for $300 a month,

If you’re willing to live a little frugally, there are plenty of crossovers, new and used, available for around $300 a month.

Fact: Vehicles today are outfitted with more “stuff” than ever before. Standard safety equipment, sophisticated infotainment/connectivity systems, and a general desire for luxury features have combined to drive the average transaction price on new vehicles sold in the U.S. to almost $34,000. More sobering: The average transaction price on a new pickup comes in around $43,000.
