The GMC Hummer EV’s Max Tow Rating Is Lower Than the Chevy Colorado

No one's buying a 1,000-horsepower GMC Hummer EV to tow construction equipment with--at least, not that I know of. Still, generally speaking, towing is an important task for any pickup. That's what makes the Ultium battery-powered truck's max tow capacity of 7,500 pounds so interesting, especially when you compare it to other rigs both in and outsi...

Meet the “Pumpkin”, a Dodge snowplow truck looking for a second act in the sun

]Unlike Charlie Brown, I didn’t have to hope to see the Great Pumpkin this past Halloween weekend. I knew exactly when it was coming. My cousin Dave’s 1979 Dodge W150, in its perfect-for-the-1970’s orange hue, is a natural namesake for the legend from Charles Schulz’s cartoon special. Given its Sweptline long bed, slight lift from […] The post Meet the “Pumpkin”, a Dodge snowplow truck looking for a second act in the sun appeared first on...

Porsche Readying Flagship SUV to Eclipse Current Cayenne

When Porsche unveiled the original Cayenne way back in 2003, brand purists nearly rose up in revolt. How could the iconic German sports car maker build—gulp—an SUV?

1995 Toyota Century Review: JDM Elegance Without the Flashy Opulence

For most Westerners, one look at the all-black sedan won't tell you much. The trunk proclaims it is a "Century," but there are no manufacturer badges emblazoned on it; all it bears is a curious golden phoenix on its hood and center caps.

Review: 2021 Yamaha XSR900

Crossover. Unless you’re an audio engineer building up a loudspeaker, it’s probably a dirty word to you. Musicians use it derisively to label songs that are milquetoast enough to appeal across genre; think Elvis Presley, Vanilla Ice, late-period Metallica. Autowriters have applied it to the ticky-tacky boxes that combine the drawbacks of a truck and […] The post Review: 2021 Yamaha XSR900 appeared first on Hagerty Media.

Treadmill Racing Is The Best Racing You Can Watch On Thanksgiving

Well, it’s Thanksgiving. You’re gonna see your beloved relatives, you’re gonna eat a meal that’s fine but not really good enough to be served more than once a year.

Or, you could bury your nose in your phone and watch Spongebob battle Keekychow on some guy’s treadmill.

2023 Kia Niro First Look: Bye Bye, Boring

The idea of Kia’s Niro was probably as appealing as the vehicle itself when the hybrid hatchback debuted for 2017. Here was a dedicated hybrid that, much like Toyota’s Prius, lacked a solely gas-fed “regular car” counterpart. Its somewhat generic tall-hatchback styling housed a pleasantly roomy cabin and a platform that also would come to
