We tested this issue last summer. If you tow a lot, you are better off with V-8. Benefit of V-6 EcoBoost is better efficiency in low-load commuting but still having stump-pulling torque for the...

Andrew, U.S. environmental policy clearly favors electric vehicles and hybrids over diesels, no argument from me. There are zero incentives in new CAFE requirements for diesels.
My point is...

Andrew, diesel emissions rules are much tougher in the U.S. than in Europe. Oxides of nitrogen and particulates have to be reduced to same level as gasoline engines, requiring expensive exhaust...

Wireless charging stations could make charging hassel free, but that solution still is far away. It will be interesting to see data in a few years showing how many consumers buy or lease a second...

To those of you who have asked: "Exterior design" is listed in both "Pro" and "Con" categories because it is the first thing folks love or hate about the car.

Cut-and-past link below for a great story on BMW's belief in the future of the inline 6 engine.
However, it has nothing to do with helping do-it-yourselfers. Those days are gone forever....

Good news is new sparkplugs no longer have to be changed regularly. Bad news is it can cost a fortune to have them changed when the time eventually comes.

Well said is228979. Most all the new gasoline GDI turbos are getting roasted by consumer activistsfor for disappointing real-world fuel economy. A very light foot is required to come close to...

Interesting how motorcycles have provided the foundation for several great automakers who are known for great engines. The most notable other example being Honda.

Hey guys, profiteering is not to blame for high diesel option prices. U.S. has toughest diesel emissions standards in the world for both particulates and oxides of nitrogen. Diesel exhaust is...

Brian, what do you think are the best interiors for this year? We're interested in reader opinions.

That's what I get for skipping Latin class in high school. Thank you Christie, is228979 and ussauto1.

So it's "Foci" instead of Focuses, "Prii" instead, of Priuses. Is it "Forti" instead of Fortes, "Geni" instead of Genesises? Who is making the rules now?

Jef von Q, as an auto writer I resent you saying I'm like a 16-year-old boy when I talk about cars. I believe I'm at least at the 18- or 19-year old level.

Discuss and register your vote about the future acceptance of the next-gen F-150 on the WardsAuto Tech Forum.

There seems to be quite a bit of discussion about the branding, but the car has been very successful considering the narrow niche it inhabits.

if EVs only are subsidized toys for the affluent, they will never catch on for mainstream buyers who need them for basic transportation. That will severely limit sales volume and positive...

This is interesting reading but "peak car" theory is headed for nowhere. As the late journalist Jerry Flint once put so aptly: "No one aspires to ride a bus."

There has been no shortage of mistakes in any era of the auto industry. I've learned a lot from readers the last couple of months. I'm looking forward to more comments.

Actually it is both. Beautiful cutaway that shows inner workings and layout.

Readers and Facebook friends have suggested 4-wheel steering, lost-foam casting, space frames, EDS, Saturn, Jack Nasser also belong on the list. I may gather these up along with others and write...

I think the new Fusion is gorgeous, but suggesting the new look is not inspired by Aston is disingenuous. Check out side-by-side images in February WardsAuto World here:

A number of excellent light-duty diesels were ready for market until everybody but Germans and Chrysler chickened out in 2008.Nissan and Honda bailed too. RAM may get light-duty diesel option in...

My editorial opinions are based on facts, logic and deductive reasoning, not political dogma. A strong national auto industry is good for all Americans. It should not be a partisan issue. George W...

I beg to differ. I've been covering the auto industry as a professional journalist for more than thirty years. Evaluating someone's expertise based on what their father did 40 years ago is pretty...

It's true Volt is eligible for $7,500 federal tax incentive, plus numerous state incentives that certainly make the price more accessible in addition to low-cost leases. In the short term, this...

Personally I think allowing police to pull over anyone not wearing a helmet just to verify insurance is more disruptive to personal freedom than just requiring everyone to wear a helmet. Michigan...
