Subaru Outback Wilderness, 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

Consumer Guide Automotive The Subaru Outback essentially pioneered the concept of the modern SUV-flavored wagon when it debuted for the 1995 model year. Then as now, the Outback is based on a station-wagon version of Subaru’s Legacy midsize sedan. Its passenger-car roots give the Outback better on-road driving dynamics than the typical SUV, while the smart interior packaging, raised ride height, and standard all-wheel drive deliver SUV-worthy levels of passenger/cargo versatility and rough-terrain capability.

Best Small Crossovers

We don’t believe that the traditional passenger sedan is dead, but consumers have demonstrated an overwhelming preference for crossovers in recent years. Of the almost 15 million new vehicles sold in the U.S. last year, roughly half were crossovers or SUVs of some variety. Sedans–once the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. by far–accounted for around 2 million sales.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport (Badlands model shown)

Not only has Ford finally pulled the wraps off its long-awaited revival of the Bronco (and added a first-ever four-door Bronco to boot), it’s also giving its all-new off-road-ready compact SUV a smaller sibling. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport aims to deliver the same kind of all-terrain ruggedness, functionality, and attitude of its big brother in a slightly tidier, more affordable package.

2020 Ford Mustang manual-transmission shifter

I don’t know why this surprised me, but my daughter has no idea what UHF TV channels are … or more correctly were.

I just turned 55, and well recall the TV channels of my youth. I grew up in Chicago, and available to us in the Seventies and Eighties were CBS (channel 2), NBC (channel 5), ABC (Channel 7), popular local WGN (channel 9), and our area public-television affiliate WTTW (channel 11).

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid

Although there are updates to Honda’s entire CR-V lineup for 2020, the biggest news is that a Hybrid model will be added, due on sale early in 2020. It will be joined in the compact-crossover class by another new hybrid entry, the 2020 Ford Escape (which should be hitting dealerships soon), both adding to the existing roster that includes hybrid versions of the Toyota RAV4, and Kia Niro — which also comes in plug-in hybrid form, the type offered by the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.
