2020 Ford Mustang GT Review: The Power of Dream Cars

2020 Ford Mustang GT Review: The Power of Dream Cars
When people find out I’m driving a commuter car for this job, sometimes they look sympathetic and say stuff like “Ooh, it must be hard to write a review about that.” It actually isn’t. Take, for example, this 2020 Ford Mustang GT. What can I really say about it apart from it’s very good? It’s…

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Honestly, Why Not?

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Honestly, Why Not?
A good friend of mine owns a 4-door  Jeep JK Wrangler. True story, it was the first manual transmission he ever owned, so he learned to drive manual as he was driving it off the lot. I once helped him put a full snowmobile into the back of his Wrangler. I’m made to understand he’s…

2021 Mini Cooper SE Review: Close But No Cigar

2021 Mini Cooper SE Review: Close But No Cigar
Hey! The internet loves short, nuanceless interpretations of big thoughts and in that spirit here’s my review of the 2021 MINI EV: It doesn’t have enough range. With about 110 miles of EPA range (I saw more like 100 miles, but I never drove it down to 0) it probably comes up just short of…

2020 BMW X5 M Competition Review: Check Out These Guns

2020 BMW X5 M Competition Review: Check Out These Guns
I have long suspected that pickup trucks operate in largely the same capacity today as full-size American sedans did in the ‘60s. If that’s the case, I think there’s an argument to be made that performance SUVs are filling the gap that muscle cars left when the oil crisis of the ’70s buried them like…

2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe Review: More to Love

2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe Review: More to Love
Road & Track recently asked who the M8 Competition is for. And I kind of wondered the same thing when I drove the convertible. It was cool, but you also got the feeling that any mention of the word “Mustang” would be met by rage and the putting of your name on a blacklist by…

2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Review

2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Review
As someone who has fetishized old sports cars all his life and tried to own one or two, I have to say, I envy the Wrangler’s universal appeal. It truly is all things to all people. And to me, this two-door Wrangler Rubicon is a Singer 911 with a reasonable price tag.

2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line Review

2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line Review
The Volkswagen Passat is one of those cars that make a critic feel spoiled. There is nothing loudly, annoyingly, nor dangerously wrong with it. And yet, it doesn’t really do enough to earn a really glowingly positive review. And I think I’ve identified exactly what I want from it: I want it to be a…

Bronco Trademarks Hint at Upcoming Special Editions

Bronco Trademarks Hint at Upcoming Special Editions
Ford has been on a trademarking spree lately. Now, All Ford Mustangs has discovered two new trademarks submitted by Ford for the names “Bronco Big Bend” and “Bronco Outer Banks.” These names follow three more similarly evocative trademarks first uncovered by Ford Authority. While those names (Wildtrack, Badlands, and Adrenaline) were assumed to be for…
