If there’s one vehicle in the Lexus line-up that I’ve been very curious about to try and enjoy, it has been the NX300. As much as I love low-slung rocket-sleds, sports cars and massive torque and horsepower, the reality is that such cars are only actually enjoyable to drive on early weekend mornings. When traffic is sparse and non-existent. And if and when I actually do wake-up.

The new Jaguar E-Pace is a rather bold attempt at a vehicle by a company known mainly for beautifully curvaceous sports cars and sedans.
I’ve always had a soft-spot for the Ford Expedition. Back in 1997, as a freshman in college, our family bought a grey-market toreador red Ford Expedition in Eddie Bauer V8 trim with the bigger 5.4-liter engine that just blew away the smaller-engined 4.6-liter V8s.
When I tried to figure out Volkswagen’s running theme when it came to the names of their releases, their product specialist said he’d get back to me on it.
People movers come in many different shapes and sizes: SUVs, pickups, MPVs. They also have varying underpinnings and engines: body-on-frame, unibody crossovers, gasoline and diesel powerplants.
Kids will be kids. They might be your worst passenger during a weekend drive or a daily ride with all their whims, caprices, tantrums and what have you, but they can always be your best buddy—and even be the best teacher or data provider you always look for.
