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.

2021 Ford Bronco

There’s at least month or so to go before Ford’s revived Bronco starts hitting dealerships in earnest, but at a recent special-preview event we had the opportunity to check out a pair of nicely equipped 4-door Broncos: a First Edition model in Cactus Gray, and a Badlands model in Area 51 (a military/industrial-looking medium gray-blue).

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe Sahara

Consumer Guide Automotive Jeep has a complicated and fascinating history going back about 80 years, to the battlefields of World War II. Civilian Jeeps, or CJs, were available almost immediately after WWII hostilities ceased, and today’s Wrangler can trace its lineage directly back to that first CJ-2A. Now, for 2021, Wrangler enters a new era with the addition of a plug-in-hybrid variant: the 4xe.
