The Most Fuel-Efficient Gas-Powered Pickup You Can Buy Ford Maverick Hybrid owners will willingly tell you all about their truck, so be prepared to hang-out for a while. As an automotive journalist I do this frequently with the cars I am reviewing as I like to hear real world experiences from people who have put on thousands of miles under different driving and road conditions. Regarding the Maverick Hybrid, I hear nothing but superlatives, including, “the best vehicle I have ever owned.” The enjoyment of driving the 2024 Ford Maverick Hybrid begins with its stellar fuel economy, but this does ..read more

The Fastest Acura SUV Ever Built The all-new 2024 ZDX is the first electric Acura and, as Quincy Tam, Acura product planner, says, it is “for their customers that are ready to take that next step into electrification.” Tam went on to say: “over the past decade, we have been tracking our customers, many of which have moved over to Tesla, so this speaks loudly they are ready for this transition.” Co-developed with General Motors, the midsize ZDX rides on the Ultium platform that is also shared with the Cadillac Lyriq, Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox EVs.

Compact SUV Coupe with a Head-Turning Design The all-new 2024 Buick Envista makes its North American debut as the fourth Buick crossover SUV, becoming part of the family of—from smallest to largest—Envista, Encore GX, Envision and Enclave. Scheduled to arrive in late 2024, the all-new Envista will complete the all-SUV Buick family. This is a complete change from the sedan-heavy, 125-year old brand that once included the likes of Century, Electra, LaCrosse, Lucerne, Park Avenue, Regal and flagship Riviera.

Hot EV Hatch Shakes Things Up Hot hatches are a blast to drive, but no one has ever had the opportunity to drive one powered by electricity—until now. The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is a purpose-built performance EV, based on the Ioniq 5. We reviewed the Ioniq 5 when it was all-new in 2022 and later in a more lengthy drive. The Ioniq 5 N blurs the traditional look of a crossover and hatchback, so-much-so that we are calling it a hatchback, while Hyundai has entered it as a crossover in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, which takes place June 23, 2024, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Revolutionary New Honda EV In a first-ever technology pairing for series production, Honda is mating plug-in battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric in the all-new 2025 CR-V—e:FCEV.

The e:FCEV advances Honda’s emissions goals as the company marches to 100-percent zero emission vehicles (battery electric or fuel cell electric) by 2040. For all operations, the company aims to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Two (or is it three?) paths forward–a plug-in hybrid fuel cell and a ..read more

Recent Data Found 37% of Drivers Prefer Short-term Leases This article may contain affiliate links. [Ed. note: While this article focuses on a UK phenomenon, we expect short-term leases to hit the States soon, if they haven’t already.] The UK has witnessed a notable increase in the preference for a short-term car lease, with two-thirds of 18-24-year-olds looking to lease a car in the future.
