Commercial vans facilitate delivery of millions of goods purchased online. They’re also the workhorses of restaurant supply, flower shops, electricians, and plumbers—as well as countless crosstown moves by spurned boyfriends. Change has been slow in the commercial van segment, but, perhaps to the delight of businesses everywhere, that’s no longer the case. Ford has updated
After multiple tests, we’ve concluded that the Honda Accord is the best car in its class. So needless to say we had high expectations for the hybrid version. In many ways, it adds to the Accord’s appeal as a practical sedan, offering a claimed 47 mpg combined (we’ll get to that later) and identical cargo
With the Jaguar I-Pace crossover hitting dealerships this fall, BMW is hard at work on its own electric SUV, as these new spy shots show. Our spies in Germany have caught the upcoming BMW iX3 conducting tests on public roads, and based on this prototype, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait long to
Hyundai teamed up with Bryan Herta Autosport to field two Hyundai i30 N TCR race cars, placing two team drivers at the helm: Michael Lewis and Mark Wilkins.

A road-going McLaren 720S is already plenty quick around a race track, so we can only imagine how quick a racing version might be. We’ll find out during the 2019 racing season, when the McLaren 720S GT3 makes its competition debut. First announced way back in November, the 720S GT3 has now been fully revealed.
Twice now I’ve been dazzled by schemes for scrubbing CO2 out of the atmosphere and turning it into fuel. In July 2008 it was NaOH scrubbers and exotic catalysts; in March 2012, it was ionic amine fluids and a formic-acid fuel cell. Both were tricky to describe, energy intense, and costly; years later, neither is
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon may be the more capable off-roader, but the Wrangler Sahara tends to be the one to pick if you spend most of your time driving on paved roads. Thanks to its street-oriented tires, less-bare-bones cabin, and longer list of creature comforts, it’s meant to be the most enjoyable daily driver in
Mercedes-Benz has teased the first vehicle in its EQ sub-brand, a crossover model called EQC that we’ll see in full on September 4. We’ve spied the EQC in prototype form a number of times, and even got a ride in one earlier this year. From the looks of things, not much has changed during the
Back in April, Ford shocked the industry when it announced plans to cancel most of its U.S. car lineup in order to focus on crossover sales. Even the Focus will only be offered as a lifted hatchback, making it more of a subcompact crossover. The consequences of the decision have yet to be seen, but according

That’s why, for every pre-

Sometimes an interview unwittingly becomes an unearthing of one’s childhood dreams. “We never even talked about cars,” Robinson says. “Cars didn’t mean anything particularly important to us. But I was totally into cars as a kid and into junior high school, obsessed with cars and designing and drawing pictures of cars. When I was thinking
This is a tricky driving impression to write. That’s because considerable engineering might has been expended to make the feature we’re here to focus on as unnoticeable as possible. That feature is a 48-volt mild-hybrid system sold by the name eTorque. It’s a pretty unsexy fuel saver that may prove to be a tough sell
In just its third year on the market, Acura is giving its NSX mid-engine hybrid all-wheel-drive supercar a relatively thorough refresh. Along with gently enhancing the aesthetics, the options list has come in for some rationalization, and the chassis team has made a dynamic tweak or two. We fervently hope the handling tweaks will address
We’ve waited a long time to see the final production version of the BMW Z4, which made its debut as a concept at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Now the wait is over, as the Z4 has reemerged at the same event a year later in First Edition guise. View 46 Photos Introducing the

It used to be that sport-utility vehicles were for workmanlike pursuits—a nicer version of a pickup, something to carry your horse tack or fishing tackle, something for the rancher to drive when helping out the hired hands on the Ponderosa. The emphasis was on enclosed utility. But it was still essentially a truck. And although
When you think of a car cruise, you think of hot rods, muscle cars, and a few vintage oddballs. You don’t think trucks, but then you don’t know the Dream Cruise. We spotted nearly as many trucks rolling down Woodward this year as cars, and we’ve picked out 13 of the most interesting examples. More

An experimental Ford Shelby GT500 Prototype nicknamed “Little Red” was discovered in a North Texas field this past spring after spending at least two decades outdoors. The owner obviously didn’t know he had a 1967 Shelby GT500 Experimental Coupe rusting away next to a bunch of mesquite trees on his property. What’s left of the
