Though you might not think of Honda as an off-road kind of company, fact of the matter is that their all-wheel drive system is legit and vehicles like the Ridgeline and Pilot have the ability to find traction where others struggle. So in swaggers the all-new 2019 Passport; designed for adventure-seekers who want superior off-road capability.

The current Shelby GT350 is the most incredible Mustang I’ve ever driven, with its 5.2-liter V8 making beautiful and rebellious sounds.
But arriving this fall is a Mustang that aims to deliver even more outrageousness.
Meet the 2020 Shelby GT500; with more than 700 horsepower, a 0-to-60mph time in the mid 3s and a sub-11-second quarter mile. This most powerful street-legal Ford ever packs the heat of a hand-built 5.2-liter supercharged V8 teamed to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that shifts faster than any manual gearbox.
2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes
The Pathfinder has a long history of being able to go where others can’t but with this current generation model, some Pathfinder faithful feel as though Nissan has left its trail days in the past.
Well, starting this spring the 2019 Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition aims to recapture some of that muddy glory.
Coming this spring is the feistiest version of the all-new Jetta; the small, sporty GLI.
Marking its 6th generation, the 2019 GLI swaps the Jetta’s 1.4-liter engine for the GTI’s 2.0-liter turbo, producing 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque – increasing its power over the previous generation.
This all-new Santa Fe showcases Hyundai’s bolder and bigger design language and really reignites the brand’s mojo which has been slipping in recent years. This 2019 model is the most complete, family-oriented SUV in its segment. It’s that good. Now, if you’re on a tight budget there’s the front-drive Santa Fe SE for under $25,000. But 6 trim levels up is this range-topping Ultimate 2.0T AWD for $39,970 before any available incentives. And that includes everything the Santa Fe offers as standard. It’s incredibly well-stocked, drives with a reassuring polish and pays special attention to cabin aesthetics and ergonomics. It recaptures the MO from Hyundai’s maturation process; providing a generous, modern package at a price that undercuts the competition.
At 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the 2.0-liter turbo’s output doesn’t wow on paper but it never feels inadequate, producing strong low-end acceleration, mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission that doesn’t interfere with the fluid driving experience. I also like having this Smart drive mode in addition to the Comfort and Sport settings that automatically selects the proper steering effort, engine and transmission control logic based on the driver’s habits. It works really well and helps save a little gas and that’s a good thing, because at 21mpg the Santa Fe trails the more powerful Ford Edge by 2mpg in mixed driving and 4mpg on the highway.
The interior dimensions of the Santa Fe have grown to give 2nd row passengers more space. And, there’s more cargo room behind these seats. All told it’s a great place to spend time with this beautiful panoramic sunroof, 2 USB ports, slide and recline heated seats, and window sunshades.
