I'm a fan of old things of all kinds, because they carry history with them. Of course, I love classic cars, and I write about them often on this blog.
Search engines have come a long way over the years, and, like a lot of things, these innovations are fueled by monetary motivations. Why do search engines exist in the first place? The answer is that they want to sell advertising, and they do it in very subtle ways.
The 2016 Lexus LX570 is a cross between a big, cushy luxury sedan, and a... mountain goat. This ridiculously capable, leather-lined behemoth sits at the pinnacle of the luxury SUV world, challenged only by the equally capable (and expensive) 2015 Range Rover and 2015 Mercedes G550. And, for 2016, this opulent Off-Road Suite has been given some styling enhancements, along with a raft of tech goodies. Let's check it out...
You certainly have to respect the engineering efforts when a particular automotive model becomes legendary for its longevity. I have quite a bit of mileage on me at this point, and, back in the day, when I was coming up in the 1970s, the Dodge Dart's ability to take a lickin' and keep on tickin' was legendary.

Tucker was no exception; he was born just outside of Detroit, the Motor City, in September of 1903
At first glance, the Mazda CX-3 doesn't seem like much, and that's well, because it's not. In fact, that's kind of the point. In an age where we have have just about every version of every car imaginable (Porsche trucks, turbo Mustangs, and supercharged four-door wagons are a few that come to mind) why not add one more niche? The difference is, we think the CX-3 will sell, and sell well. It is an emerging market that might just take off very quickly—the subcompact SUV, or sometimes called the CUV (crossover utility vehicle) market. This segment of the automotive world already has a few players in the game like the Jeep Renegade, Nissan Juke, and the like, but the newest Mazda on the playground may just have what it takes to be king of the little hill.
A Bentley SUV was inevitable, and Crewe has just released a video to prove that their ultralux creation can indeed hack it in the wild. But it's really not all that impressive. Unless you take into account that it weighs 9 billion pounds, and has all the aerodynamic properties of a Pizza Hut...
The 354hp Audi SQ5 is a hot little SUV. It offers lots of style, lots of luxury, and lots of supercharged performance. But they've discovered that its electric power steering system could fail, which could be really bad if you're driving it they way it was intended (See: Quickly).
When GM announced they'd be making a diesel-powered midsize truck, the automotive world stood on its collective ear. Diesel engines are more efficient than gas mills, and they offer more power too. Americans don't typically buy diesel-engined vehicles, but that's slowly changing. And the 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax offers 369 reasons to make the switch...
Bam! Airbags are meant to save lives, but, sometimes, they can smack you in the face like an angry girlfriend. And if you drive a 2012-2015 Ram pickup, you may not be as safe as you thought...
