School is back in session and there’s no better way to make an appearance than with some luxury coupes and a high-end crossover. Check out what we’re testing this week on AutoGuide Now.

2016 Ford Explorer PlatinumMike Schlee, Road Test Editor:

“Next week I’m off to Bozeman, MT to see what the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum is all about. By combining the Explorer Sport’s performance in a package more luxurious than the Limited model, the new Platinum is poised to be the ultimate Explorer. To find out how much comfort, luxury and performance there really is, I will be driving one from Bozeman south to Jackson Hole, WY.”

2016 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe and Mercedes-AMG GT SColum Wood, Director of Editorial:

Each week at AutoGuide Sami Haj-Assaad herds cats and gets us all to write a few sentences about whatever car we’re driving. I used to drive cars all the time, but now I just don’t have the time. And this week might just be the most hectic yet. From launching new sites, to acquiring others, to keeping up with the day-to-day strategies of a handful of already successful sites, sadly, I have no time to drive a . . . What’s that? Someone booked a Mercedes AMG GT and a Jaguar F-Type R Coupe for a comparo and then got sent on a trip? I’m in!
