2017 Chrysler Pacifica

“Why hasn’t the SUV made the minivan obsolete?” It’s an interesting question, but a pretty easy one to answer: Because there isn’t an SUV on the road that can match a minivan like Chrysler’s new Pacifica when it comes to transporting families and their gear around with convenience, versatility and comfort.

2016 Nissan Altima SV

With the addition of the new SR model to the 2016 Altima line-up, Nissan is taking dead aim at one of the fastest growing areas of the mid-size sedan segment – sport variants. Among some competitors, the so-called “sport” grades account for nearly 40 percent of total sales. Altima already is one of the sportiest designs in the segment, however the company is taking a more Nissan-like approach, adding a level of true enhanced performance to go with the requisite larger wheels and spoiler.

After five straight years of sales growth, Nissan gives the 2016 Altima a major facelift, adopting the new “Energetic Flow” design used on the Murano and Maxima. The Altima is one of the country’s best-selling sedans, and there are plenty of good reasons why. The Altima is a roomy and comfortable sedan with strong, proven 4-… Continue reading →

The 2016 Nissan TITAN XD, which made its world debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, is set to shake up the highly competitive full-size pickup segment when it goes on sale in the United States and Canada beginning in late 2015 - with a bold all-new design that stakes out a unique position in the segment between traditional heavy-duty and light-duty entries.

Something odd happened during my weeklong test drive of the 2016 Nissan Titan XD. I was stopped in parking lots three times by people who saw me get out of the new truck. It’s common for people to say something like “nice truck” as they walk by, but these three guys wanted to know ALL about it.… Continue reading →
