Quick Specs
It’s not cheap and it is kind of heavy, but the 2009 BMW M3 offers the kind of performance that brought Porsche 911s and Chevy Corvettes fame on the racetrack and on the streets.
The 2009 GMC Yukon Denali still ranks as one of the most stylish and comfortable ways to do serious cross-country hauling.
The 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid sticks with the same formula that has worked so well for the 2008 Highlander hybrid—a spacious, feature-laden cabin and very efficient full-hybrid powertrain that lends serious environmental credentials to anyone behind the wheel.
Let the burnouts begin! The Ford Mustang finally has another domestic competitor.
The 2009 Lincoln Navigator is a well-rounded, full-size SUV offering both luxury and performance.
Drivers of the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid will burn hundreds fewer gallons of gas a year than drivers of standard V-8 trucks.
