A Little Tribute To An Overshadowed Big Brother: The Fiat 600

Sep 1 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Right now, the most famous Fiat (at least in the US) is the Fiat 500. The 500 has become the iconic Fiat, the mascot of Fiat, and while it's certainly a car that earned that status, I've always felt that it's older big brother, the Fiat 600, never really got the credit it des ...

Roam If You Want To: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Full Pricing Out

Aug 28 2014 1:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The formula for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is pretty straightforward: Mix four-doors and (usually) four-wheel drive with a family-size vehicle and a reasonably comfortable and well-appointed interior. The recipe has proved so enticing that the Grand Cherokee is now available in six levels of trim, putting the venerated nameplate within reach of almost any buyer. The most affordable entry gets Laredo badging. Priced at $30,59 ...

'Lincoln Lawyer' Star McConaughey Tabbed for Lincoln Ads

Aug 21 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Cars.com

Don't drive a Lincoln? Matthew McConaughey thinks it'd be a lot cooler if you did. Earlier this year, the Hollywood A-lister's so-called McConaissance was fully realized when he won the Oscar for his "Dallas Buyers Club" performance. Now, Ford is hoping the born-again serious actor — who'd become a bit of a punchline in recent years, starring in poorly received romantic comedies and, like, "Surfer, Dude" before a st ...

Here are five slow classics that pretended to be sporty

Aug 20 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The Subaru/Toyota twins are often derided for their lack of power. Enthusiasts everywhere have moaned that they have “only” 200 horsepower and about their “slow” eight-second zero to 60 time. Perhaps we’re too spoiled by living in a world where a properly optioned RAV4 can do zero to 60 in under seven seconds, but eight seconds isn’t all that slow.  There was a time when even the largest V8s struggled to make 200 ...

Honda Kills Fit EV, Says It Is Committed to Other Forms of Electromotive Transportation

Aug 1 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Honda is discontinuing its Fit EV by the end of the year as it concentrates on other forms of electrified vehicles like Accord PHEV and the production version of the futuristic-looking FCEV concept that rocked the 2013 L.A. auto show. The Fit is the latest casualty of Honda’s evolving approach to electromobility. Earlier this year, Honda announced its decision to discontinue the slow-selling Insight hybrid, but this news regarding the Fit EV is, well, news consider ...

Alfa Romeo SUV

Jul 31 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

With Alfa Romeo finally selling its 4C within U.S. borders after countless years of delays and setbacks, it appears the Italian brand is getting its vehicle development plans into high gear. Alfa says it will launch eight fresh models by 2018, two of which will be SUVs. Though nothing is set in stone — as usual with Alfa — the first SUV will debut for 2016 and directly compete with The Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Lexus NX.The trio ...

Gnarly! Fiat 500L–Vans Concept Debuts at Vans U.S. Open of Surfing

Jul 30 2014 10:24am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Sometimes when you take an ungainly car and cover it with tons of crap it can come out kind of nifty-looking. If that weren’t possible, SEMA wouldn’t be a thing. At the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing last weekend in Huntington Beach, California, Fiat debuted a high-riding, surfer-inspired concept version of its none-too-fetching 500L dubbed, not coincidentally, the 500L–Vans. Turns out, when festooned with a two-tone paint job, 18-inch matte-black wheels, smoked lamp surrounds, and a roof wea ...
