2015 Lexus RC F Coupe Review

2015 Lexus RC F Coupe Review

If the new Lexus RC Coupe were a flavor, it would come in two hot choices: Medium BBQ and hot Chipotle BBQ. Both are tasty, but the hotter 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe is the one we test drove this weekend and the one we were very excited for. Lexus is changing their image and […]

Ice Cream Machine: A Tasteful History

Ice Cream Machine: A Tasteful History

I absolutely love ice cream.  It’s one of my guilty pleasures. I grew up in LeMars, Iowa, home of Wells’ Blue Bunny.  My childhood was filled with flavors like Homemade Vanilla, Cookie Dough, and the infamous Bunny Tracks. There are many like the latter but don’t for one second be fooled. Bunny Tracks is the […]

2015 Volkswagen Golf R DSG Review

2015 Volkswagen Golf R DSG Review

If the Golf R were a celebrity in a movie it would be Tom Cruise in the new Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation thriller. His character, Ethan Hunt, makes quick work of the competition and doesn’t take any prisoners. Cruise drives a BMW M3 in the movie, but the agile and fast Volkswagen Golf R would […]

iDriving into Oblivion

iDriving into Oblivion

Call me a Luddite, but I can’t embrace today’s overly complex and largely unnecessary infotainment systems in cars. Anyone who read my first column knows my daily driver is a 2003 Porsche 911. While not that old, it seems positively analog compared to most of today’s new cars. I actually have to – egad! – […]

2015 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD Review

2015 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD Review

I have to admit that every time I drive a Ford Fusion, I feel like I am in something really special. Since its launch in 2013, this is my third time driving it. The first time, I was in a base Fusion and people were doing a double-take at the stoplights because the car was […]

2015 VW Touareg TDI Sport Review

2015 VW Touareg TDI Sport Review

When the 2015 Volkswagen Touareg arrived for our test, we didn’t have time to check out any details on the five seat SUV. When we finally saw it was the TDI Sport model, we were surprised! We drove 26 miles without realizing the 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine under the hood was a diesel. It’s so […]

2015 Ford F-150: A Good Sport

2015 Ford F-150: A Good Sport

The 2015 Ford F-150 resembles the Mustang.  Seems unlikely, perhaps even impossible, yet the two are “linked” not so inexplicably, although wonderfully. The transmission technology for the Mustang and F-150 were created in unison and that becomes strikingly obvious when the best selling truck enters Sport Mode. Sport Mode allows F-150 to mirror the performance of the […]

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Review

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Review

Automakers do a lot of testing before a vehicle hits dealer showrooms and because we live in Colorado, we get to see many different vehicles being tested at the higher altitudes on I-70. This week we took the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE and went on a little chase of a new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT […]
