The 49th edition of the Superbowl was surely great to watch if you are either a) An NFL fan or b) Anyone who enjoys outdoor meals, hence its popularity. Being a Mexican, I am not an NFL fan nor I fake to be one at all but I do enjoy the Superbowl for 1 reason alone. The Commercials. I enjoy well done publicity and…
The decision Ford made when they decided to make a sports/off-road truck was probably as good as a decision to constantly decrease the price of the Ford Model T in the early 1900's. The truck sold amazingly well and brought the blue oval some green rectangles from which projects like the new Ford GT emerged. And who…
Opinions on a vehicle's styling are subjective, of course, but these are what I think are the ugliest cars of the past half-decade. Offer me one of these, and I'd probably turn it down (unless it was free, and I could then turn right around and sell it for profit).
Just a reminder (in case you've forgotten for some reason) that the first episode of Top Gear's 22nd season is showing on BBC America tonight! I don't know what time it's on elsewhere in the country, but I'm watching it (and trying to work) right now on the east coast.
Munich Germany, 1932. Inspired by Henry Ford, Adolf Hitler sits in a restaurant and sketches the outline of what would become a very familiar vehicle. That familiar sketch is of what would become the Volkswagen Beetle. According to the precise specifications of Hitler, This vehicle would have a top speed of 62 miles…
The Chevrolet SS doesn't sell well, even though it's a genuinely good car. In my opinion, this is partly because Chevrolet doesn't market the darn thing near enough, and partly because it's priced way too high. For comparison, a base-spec SS costs $45,745, whereas a base Dodge Charger will only lighten your checking…
This is a very interesting article from OppositeLock's resident Indonesian expert, a man called Aya, who lives in Indonesia.
"XD" is most commonly used as an emoticon, but Scion also uses it as the name of their soon-to-be-discontinued xD box-on-wheels. Automotive rendering mastermind Theophilus Chin thinks that Jaguar could also use it to take on several premium compact-market offerings in Europe.
A recent article by Tavarish got me thinking: What if leasing a car really isn't as bad as he makes it sound? As I've never leased a car before, a did a quick bit of research, and now I've put together a list of four reasons why leasing a car isn't "a terrible idea."
Hello there, readers. For those of you who don't know me, allow me to introduce myself. I am Chris McMays, the founder and owner of AutoKing, as well as the current Editor-in-Chief.
We have a columnist, Simon, on our editorial staff team, but I'd like to share this piece that I wrote about the Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG anyway. Enjoy.
It's time for this week's EBay Challenge results, courtesy of Car Buying's Tavarish. This time, he asked readers to find the best cars with 8 cylinders that can be bought for under $8K. The results are a bit of a mixed bag.
As of today, winter stopped showing its miserable face and the sun came up which gave me the opportunity to clean the car for the first time this year. I hate having a dirty car and enjoy washing it, so I got to it.
And that's a good thing. The current-generation 1-Series (a small hatchback sold in Europe, where I live, for those who don't know) has always been a mixed bag, and one of its biggest faults is the design, in my opinion. Luckily, BMW has now fixed that!
Lexus announced back in November 2014 that they would be bringing two new models to the Detroit Auto Show that took place this week, a performance car and something else. The new performance car was the new GS F sedan, and the "something else" was rumored to be the redesigned 2016 RX crossover. Yeah, well, it wasn't.
Inexpensive, practical, popular and of course oozing quality. This group of words are exactly what, like a middle easter plague, have impregnated the Volkswagen brand ever since its inception in the chilly hills of Wolfsburg. Like a middle school boy that used to pee itself, VW was always remembered by its reputation…
Apparently, not great. BMW M-Brand Engineering chief Albert Biermann said a couple years ago that sales for a manual M5 only accounted for 10-15%. I really don't think that has improved either, as it is planned to stop offering the manual altogether. But what does this mean?
