The Future of Commercial Vehicles

A street sign is shown at the intersection of past and future with a city scape in the background.
As a journalist, a man of the world, and an expert in all things automotive, I like to keep my finger on the pulse of the industry and track what’s going on. While so-called “consumer” vehicles are fascinating, to be sure, the commercial side of the industry is often overlooked despite how much innovation goes on there. If you’re...

Dr. Fauci is shown with his arms crossed in front of a 'used SUVs for sale' retrofit vehicles.
The race to COVID-19 herd immunity hit a few speed bumps recently as chronic vaccine shortages plagued the country and anti-vaxxers got way too much media airtime, throwing a monkey wrench in billionaire Bill Gates’ nefarious plans to microchip the planet’s population in a lifesaving vaccine under the guise of a fake virus. That’s when the Federal...

Hold GME: One Man’s Story

Three early 2021 events are shown: Adam Johnson stealing the podium, Bernie Sanders wearing mittens, and Game Stop being handed a pile of money.
By the end of 2020, I thought nothing could surprise me anymore; then we had 31 days of January, and now I don’t know what to think. From insurrection to poetry, from Bernie Sanders’s mittens to a renewed respect for science, and of course, there was Reddit and Wall Street. I didn’t expect to see random lunatics on the...

A close up shows a confused man trying to figure out the difference between the 2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ram 1500.
I know what you are thinking; they have the name written on the side, so that's probably a good first indication. But what if you can't see the badges? How do you tell the 2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500 apart? I'm not sure you can. I wouldn't go as far as to say they are the same...

Boddums Up: GMC Sierra or Ford F-150?

A man is reading a paper while a spaceship is beaming light over him.
Hello readers, and welcome back, once again, to my award-winning series in which I take letters from you, sent to me, and provide answers to them. While I was going to pick five or six emails at random for this one, I noticed something odd while looking at some of the messages I’ve received. One particular email really stood...

The Lord of the Compact Crossovers: The Two Transports

The silhouettes of the Fellowship of the Ring characters are in front of a Ford dealership.
As a woodland elf, there is only one thing I love in this world. That’s getting the best of dwarves. While my people sought to create a well-rounded compact crossover that can safely transport a Fellowship to the likes of Mordor, the dwarves also set out to create their own version. The results were the 2021 Ford Escape vs...

A couple is behind a broken heart with a key because the auto industry is contributing to divorce in today's live auto news.
Friends, today I’m here to talk to you about something most people seem to be ignoring: divorce rates in the US are on the rise.

A well dressed man is giving the middle finger next to a Jeep emblem.
Several executives from European automakers have recently asked for FCA to suspend production of its 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, to give them appropriate time to build cost-competitive vehicles. Their issues largely lie with the Trackhawk high-performance variant outdoing their more expensive SUVs. While the executives of the various companies seem to have coordinated their statements, the Jeep response has...

Shopping for Cars: Used vs. Pre-Owned vs. CPO and More…

A woman is holding keys in front of a used car at a used Chevy dealer.
When done properly, shopping for a used vehicle should be a series of decisions and disappointments.
