2019 Mitsubishi Outback PHEV

Hey, remember Mitsubishi?

October 16, 2018 David Zatz 0

Mitsubishi is coming back. Okay, to be more accurate, they never left, but they’re getting more popular. The Mitsubishi car company was only a small part of the huge Mitsubishi keiretsu which builds the container ships that transport its cars, the stereos in their (and other) cars, and some of […]

Courtesy of Real Fast Fotography, we have a portfolio of 2019 Ford Ranger pickup spy shots, covering several models. The Ranger is already available for pre-orders, and will show up in XL, XLT, and Lariat forms; we’re not sure why one of our spy shot pickups has Sport decals. The […]

As in the past, the vehicle — now a unit-body crossover — will share its platform with the Lincoln Aviator. Most of its […]

Chevy’s diesel being tested; 2019 Ram’s still MIA

August 17, 2018 David Zatz 0

Ram had the first modern Class 1 pickup with a diesel — a VM engine originally created partly for General Motors. Ford and Chevy were caught flat-footed. Then came an emissions scandal, thanks, it seems, to placing too much trust in suppliers. Eventually, Ram got their engine certified for 2018 trucks, […]
