AutoGuide Now for the Week of July 14

Three distinctly different cars are in for testing this week at the AutoGuide garage and each one is pretty awesome in their own way. Read all about it on the latest iteration of AutoGuide Now.

2014-dodge-challenger-rt-shaker 2014 Dodge Challenger Shaker – Mike Schlee, Road Test Editor: “This week, I’m driving the Dodge Challenger Shaker. We first saw the car during the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas last November, but now it’s out on the streets. As you might remember, Dodge is offering the Challenger with a special hood that leaves a hole with the air intake poking out to show the engine moving as it revs.” Tweet at Mike this week with any questions you have about the car.

2013-audi-s4 2014 Audi S4 – Craig Cole, Associate Editor – This week I’m sampling Audi’s sublime S4, a performance sedan with subtle looks and dynamite performance. Like the standard A4 I reviewed a couple months back (and was effusive about) this car is getting on in years but you’d never know it; the thing feels so buttoned down, precise and nicely balanced. Could it be the perfect all-around performance machine? Stay tuned for my full review in the coming weeks…” Don’t forget to follow Craig on Twitter, and tweet him your jealous thoughts about this awesome sport-sedan.

2014-toyota-highlander-hybrid2014 Toyota Highlander HybridSami Haj-Assaad, Features Editor: “I’m doing my best ‘family-man’ impression with the sensible, yet super-loaded Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited. The V6-Electric powertrain will (hopefully) help save some gas on an upcoming road-trip, while the comfy seating, adaptive cruise control and Toyota’s EasySpeak PA system will help me stay sane as I stuff six of my friends in the car for an annual cottage excursion.” Follow Sami on Twitter to see his thoughts on the Highlander Hybrid, and tweet him your favorite road-trip songs to help him rock out during a long drive.
