2019 Lexus UX

Consumer Guide Automotive If you haven’t noticed, compact crossovers are all the rage nowadays. That applies to premium ones as well, and increasingly, to premium ones that have been downsized to near subcompact proportions. And that’s the game Lexus has entered with the new UX.

2019 Acura Lineup

2019 Acura Lineup

Acura’s product lineup has been undergoing an exterior-design transformation over the last few years, and the styling makeover has reached full fruition with the 2019 model year. As promised, the brand’s “Diamond Pentagon” grill treatment, a look that debuted on the Acura Precision concept car of 2016, has now proliferated across every Acura model. We recently attended the 2019 Acura full-line media preview, where we got some seat time in the refreshed ILX compact and a couple of hot laps in the NSX supercar, as well as an overview of the rest of the Acura lineup. Check out what’s new:

Gray Crossovers

They’re almost exactly the same color, but each shade of gray has a unique name. Check them out.

The older and crankier among us have long lamented that all new cars look alike. If we’re entirely honest about it, we must concede that our grouchy acquaintances aren’t completely wrong. Certain safety and aerodynamic considerations have, to some extent, tied the hands of vehicle designers, giving them a little less leeway when it comes to shaping a modern car or truck.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis Edition

Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis Edition

Cheap Wheels

by Don Sikora

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Jeep’s compact Cherokee and Wagoneer proved popular after their debuts for 1984, and parent AMC was already working on a larger replacement when Chrysler bought the company in 1987. Chrysler had other priorities, so it took until the 1993 model year for the replacement to go on sale. At that point the decision was made to keep the old type in production and position the new vehicle upmarket as the Grand Cherokee and Grand Wagoneer.
