The Ranger has made its triumphant return to America, ready to duke it out in the suddenly hot midsize truck segment. Now, not everyone who wants a truck needs F-150-size and capability and the Ranger takes up that slack and does so brilliantly.

Scion bid us sayonara in 2016 but some of their models can still be purchased under the Toyota brand including the beloved little FR-S, an affordable rear-drive sports car now called the 86.

I finally made it to summer vacation which, as you know, means I’m up in Maine. And this year’s workhorse is the 2019 GMC Acadia; a 3-row, midsize SUV that was last redesigned 3 years ago. It has done a yeoman’s job of everything I’ve asked of it thus far and if you’re considering one here are 10 things you need to know.
With choking traffic and a growing level of ineptitude from behind the wheel, driving is usually anything but an enjoyable experience. So as Americans we try and isolate ourselves in big SUVs and I get why. But when a hot little hatchback like this shows up the driver within is exhumed. This is the new Hyundai Veloster N and it’s the most new car fun you can have for under $30k. https://testdrivenow.com/2019-hyundai-veloster-n/
Volkswagen has a new halo model and no it’s not a W8 or a Phaeton. They’ve named it the Arteon and it picks up where the CC left off, offering VW shoppers a more stylish alternative to the Passat. MSRP of this one with no options is $42,790. It’s a car I’d be happy to drive every day and with 4MOTION it’s a perfect year-round family car with some flair. https://testdrivenow.com/2019-volkswagen-arteon/
