2020 Toyota Corolla
2020 Toyota Corolla

The 2020 Toyota Corolla shows how serious the company remains about small sedans and hatchbacks, even as rivals drop theirs in favor of crossover SUVs. The latest Corolla sedan adds luster to one of the longest-lived nameplates in the business, and while it doesn’t bristle with...Read More»

2019 Mazda MAZDA6
2019 Mazda 6

The 2019 Mazda 6 doesn’t make a bad step. This year, the mid-size sedan returns mostly unchanged from last year’s version, albeit with standard safety hardware that was optional last year. We give the sedan a 6.3 that belies our feelings about it: full safety information...Read More»

2020 Ford Explorer

The 2020 Ford Explorer represents more than a mere evolution of the Explorer’s family-meets-outdoors template; with the first major redesign given to this mainstream, mid-size family SUV in nine model years, it follows a completely different game plan. What’s different? Just...Read More»

2020 GMC Canyon
2020 GMC Canyon

The 2020 GMC Canyon is a no-nonsense mid-size pickup truck that remains a good choice even against its stiff competition. It’s more comfortable and luxurious than other options in its class especially in top trims, though safety is a concern, so we’ve awarded it 4.8 out of...Read More»

2019 GMC Sierra 1500

With the 2019 Sierra, GMC has a truck that falls shy of maximum capability, but looks to cameras and software to optimize the truck experience. It also counts on a unique, versatile six-way tailgate and a carbon-fiber bed to score tech and utility points away from its stablemate, the...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 first drive, Wyoming, August 2018
2019 Chevrolet Silverado

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado gets a new design this year, and drops up to 450 pounds in the process, but it’s more focused on its mission than ever. Its bed is bigger and offers more features, and its cab gets bigger, making this brawny pickup better at hauling cargo and people...Read More»

2019 Honda Passport

With its 2019 Passport, Honda hasn’t invented anything new. The five-seat Passport neatly plugs a gap in Honda’s crossover SUV lineup with minimal fuss. It didn’t take much effort for the automaker to create the 2019 Honda Passport: It’s a Pilot with 6.2 inches...Read More»

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class preview

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class hides a secret. As its name suggests, the 2020 GLB slots alphabetically in the Mercedes lineup between the GLA and the GLC. But, the GLB offers a third row of seats that opens it up to seven passengers—its bigger and smaller siblings have room for...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

Reboots come in all shapes and sizes, from the kind found on TV and film, to the daily process you go through just to get your phone to receive voice mails. The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is a reboot, but the familiar nameplate won't return on a truck-based SUV. With the reformatted Blazer...Read More»

2020 Toyota Sienna

The 2020 Toyota Sienna minivan is an older design that hasn’t changed much in a decade, but it remains a good choice for its value and its optional all-wheel drive. This year we’ve scored the 2020 Sienna at 5.5 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The Sienna...Read More»
