CAR REVIEW: 2018 Toyota Camry SE Hybrid

2018 Toyota Camry SE H

Not once in my career have I been excited about a Toyota Camry. Heck, even the Corolla managed to get me a little excited when Toyota introduced the XRS with its 170-horsepower 6,000 rpm Celica-sourced mill and 6-speed manual. Even the subsequent S with the Camry’s 2.4-litre was almost, um, amusing. But the Camry? Nope. Well, maybe a 2002 SE ...

FIRST DRIVE: 2018 Jeep Wrangler

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Like many of you, I often quip about the “new and improved” marketing line. I mean, is it new or is it improved? For the first time, I’ve found something that is both new and improved. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is improved in the sense that, although it looks very much like the previous truck both inside and out, it ...

FIRST CAR REVIEW: 2018 Kia Stinger GT

Don’t be blinded by the logos on the car. Look at the car. What do you see? Hang on, I’ll tell you. The 2018 Kia Stinger GT is the result of a hard-working brand putting their best foot forward. Actually, it’s more than that. Kia’s put roughly six years of work into the Stinger since the unveiling of the GT ...
