Dear reader: we know you’re eager to see what new reviews and stories are coming to the site, so here’s a quick preview of what you can expect.

2016 Honda Pilot and FriendsMike Schlee, Road Test Editor:

“The Honda Pilot is all-new this year and looking to shake things up in the family-friendly three-row crossover world. To see how good it is, I’m bringing along two popular mid-size crossovers looking to outshine the Pilot –the Toyota Highlander and Kia Sorento”

Pebble Beach/Monterey Car WeekJodi Lai, Managing Editor:

Next week I’m grateful to be doing one of those things on every automotive enthusiast’s bucket list: I’m going to Pebble Beach for Monterey Car Week! I’ll be reporting live from the event, bringing you the best supercars, new reveals, and coolest vintage vehicles. It’s sure to be a busy week filled with astronomical horsepower and gratuitous car porn. I’m actually really excited to see all the vintage stuff, too. I’ll also be attending a preview of a secret new Hyundai concept. Stay tuned to find out what it is!

Pebble Beach/Monterey Car WeekCraig Cole, Associate Editor:

“This week I’m venturing all the way out to the West Coast to help cover a little event called Pebble Beach. From the newest concept cars to priceless collector vehicles, we’ll bring you the latest from this world-famous car show. Any questions? Hit me up on Twitter @CraigCole.”

2016 Subaru ForesterSami Haj-Assaad, Features Editor:

“I’m heading to the Canadian east coast for an adventure in the brand new 2016 Subaru Forester. The biggest updates to the new Forester is the Starlink infotainment system. I’ll admit to being quite critical of Subaru’s in-car technology in the past, so hopefully the updated system is more to my liking.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT + Woodward – Stephen Elmer, News Editor:

“This week, I not only get into a high-horsepower SUV, I get to show it off at one of the largest American car shows anywhere in the world. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT will be my ride to this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise, a one day event on the streets of Detroit that celebrates American muscle. There are few things better than a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8. But best of all, this SUV actually handles well, much better than its heft curb weight would suggest. Watch for tweets and updates this weekend, live from the streets of Detroit!”
