Officially, Black Friday isn’t happening until November 24, 2023, but that hasn’t stopped online retailers from releasing seasonal deals without warning, which began this year in early October. So if you’re in the market for saving money and avoiding the Black Friday rush, you can start taking advantage of some best Black Friday automotive deals from major retailers’ websites such as Amazon. We’re including some of the best automotive deals from them below. Automotive tools, parts, supplies, accessories, audio, fluids, equipment, and more are the same year-round, so we like to wait for sales like this to snap up the things we’ve had our eye on.
The best roof rails, cross bars, and roof racks should be high on the list for anyone looking to add storage capacity to their car, truck, or SUV. You can put any odd-shaped cargo that won’t fit inside—or that’s dirty and you don’t want inside—up and out of the way, and still have all your interior room. You can use roof racks and rails to attach a secure, weatherproof cargo carrier; use as a rooftop attachment for kayaks, surfboards, snowboards, skis, fishing rods, bicycles, or just about anything else you can think of.
Going doors-off is one of the best parts of driving a Jeep, but it can also be one of the more frustrating. Taking your doors off can make things more complicated when it comes to safety, convenience, and even the law. Fortunately, there are some great Jeep tube doors available that can solve all of those problems but still give you all of the benefits of no doors.
The fight for supremacy between the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco could go on forever, but there’s one line where Ford is the clear winner. When you take the doors off of your Wrangler, the mirrors come with it. Ford’s Bronco lets you see behind you. But thanks to the aftermarket, you can even the score in a hurry. With Jeep Wrangler doors off mirrors that give you options to let you see traffic behind you when you’re feeling the breeze.
If you’re like us, you love camping. But you might not love sleeping on the ground. A tent is great to keep you out of the elements, but it is also, well, a bit of a pain. Finding the right site takes work, avoiding rocks, worrying about water pooling, and then there’s the setup itself. A rooftop tent takes all of that work out of the equation.
The 2013 model year saw Toyota roll out an all-new, fourth generation of its RAV4 compact crossover. While similar in size to its predecessor, the fourth-gen model’s styling made it clear this was a brand-new design. Among its key attributes were the excellent build quality and reliability that helped establish the RAV4 as an all-star in the compact SUV class. Like the current RAV4, the previous generation offered gasoline and hybrid options.
It’s that tine of year again, time for the Yokohama Tire spring seasonal annual rebate promotion. Staring on April 1 through April 30, consumers looking for a new set of tires can get up to $125 back from a Yokohama prepaid Mastercard when buying four or five select Yokohama tires.
The Toyo Celsius II all-season tire will supersede the Celsius and Celsius CUV tires. As you’d expect, the new tire is designed to provide good year-round service. It departs from the norm with a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) designation, which means it’s qualified for severe snow conditions.
Owning a pickup truck has plenty of benefits (like making you very popular with your friends when they’re moving), but everything you have sitting in your truck bed is exposed to the outside world. That means weather, thieves, and even just falling out in the wind on the highway. To protect your truck bed, you need a tonneau cover. A cover that sits over the bed, usually mounted to the sides of the bed, keeping everything out of the weather and out of sight.
In the world of portable power stations, the EcoFlow Delta Pro stands at the edge of where “portable” and “big” meet. It’s only portable because it comes with wheels and a telescoping handle like a piece of carry-on luggage, because even with two wrapped handles, you’re not slinging this nearly 100-pound box around casually. We have moved ours quite a bit, including bringing it to a Level 2 charger and literally out into a field, but unlike the smaller Jackery we recently reviewed (and EcoFlow’s own Delta 2, which we have in testing right now), tailgating isn’t what the Delta Pro is aimed at.
Over the past few years, our northern editors have tested tires from all the major brands, but it’s been quite a while since we ran a set of Michelin X-Ice snow tires (“X-Ice Snow” is the tire name). Industry-wide shortages meant Michelin wasn’t able to get them into our hands until mid-November, which is later than we like to put them on; but because of a very mild fall in the East we didn’t have any early winter weather to contend with.
Earlier this year Sailun launched the latest evolution of the brand’s Ice Blazer line of tires. As it’s the first new winter tire from the manufacturer in quite some time, the new Sailun Ice Blazer WSTX is a big deal. It’s also the perfect opportunity for us at AutoGuide to perform another in-depth, winter-long tire test.
Getting the best ice scraper and snow brush to clear off your windshield isn’t just convenient, it’s an important safety issue. If you live where it snows, you’ve seen someone either trying to see out of a partly cleared window, or driving around with a pile of snow on the roof. In many states, it’s illegal not to clear both your windshield and roof, but it causes multiple accidents every year. Clearing your car properly should be part of your planning for safe driving in the winter.
From bewildering new technology embraced by tech lovers and early adopters, electric vehicles are quickly entering the mainstream with nearly every auto manufacturer offering at least one – if not an entire range of EVs. But the biggest limiting factor in EV acceptance is the lack of public charging infrastructure. Fortunately, unlike gas-propelled vehicle owners, EV folks have the ability to install their own home “refuelling” or charge stations. Though we refer to these devices as chargers, they’re more properly known as Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), passing AC current to the vehicle where it’s then converted to DC by the onboard charger.
If you’re not a car person, and you want gifts for car lovers, you might head over to Amazon’s “Most Wished For” automotive products and find what looks like a random mix of great and terrible gift ideas, without any way of telling which one is which. That’s one of the main reasons we’ve spent the last 12 months evaluating, purchasing, and testing automotive parts and accessories, sometimes for months, figuring out which one are worth your money ( and which ones aren’t).
