Polaris Slingshot hits the road on all three wheels [w/videos]

Jul 28 2014 8:43am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Performance, Videos, MISC If there's one thing that the likes of Morgan and Campagna have taught us, it's that a three-wheeled roadster can be one heck of a fun ride, bringing together the best elements of a motorbike and a sports car (albeit with none of the practicality). And now they've got a new challenger on their hands in the form of the Slingshot. The Polaris Slingshot has been on our radar screen for a few months, but has now been revealed in full. It ...

How We’d Spec It: The Perfect GMC Sierra 1500 Denali

Jul 25 2014 4:44pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

This probably won’t surprise anyone, but we have a number of racers, track-day junkies, and vintage-car owners on staff, so tow vehicles are highly prized around our office. While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that rig’s better-dressed sibling, the GMC Sierra. Here’s how we’d spec it: MODEL: GMC Sierra 1500 6. ...

It’s been a major sore spot for buyers since the Mali ...
