Dodge Caravans left ravaged by Tropical Storm Karen
It was way back in the 1950s when the U.S. National Hurricane Center began the practice which would carry over to the World Meteorological Organization: the practice of assigning human names to tropical storms and hurricanes.

Dozens of Greta Thunberg duplicates standing in front of Volvo Headquarters
This recent week, headlines and (most everyone’s) social media newsfeeds have been overtaken by a polarizing 16-year old Swedish girl who will have either earned your enthusiastic praise, or your scathing criticism.

Kia and Subaru Fighting Over Presidential Spokesperson

The Kia and Subaru logos have boxing gloves hanging off of them, while Congressman Seth Moulton is in the middle smiling.
If there’s one thing no-one wants in a presidential race, it’s a shit-show of undesirables to choose from. The same could be said for buying a new crossover.

Worst Name Ideas for ‘Baby Bronco’

A group of teen moms who enjoy used Ford trucks are behind a pregnant woman with an FGL tattoo on her stomach.
While it's inevitable that some poor schmuck with inarguably weak judgment is shopping for used Ford trucks right now, the automaker seems to be developing an entirely new customer base in the crossover segment.

Dodge: Helping or Hindering Transgenderism

A teen boy in a skull cut-off is standing next to his car after leaving a Dodge dealership.
With the possible exception of Jews (mostly because of that whole 'Bar Mitzvah' thing), many cultures believed that a boy became a man the first time they climbed under the hood of a car, set foot on a Dodge dealership, attended a car show or demolition derby, or participated in a drag race.

Jeff Goldblum is the New Face of GM

GM's Mary Barra Looks on at the Automaker's New Spokesperson, actor Jeff Goldblum.
General Motors can’t seem to catch a break. Criticism over layoffs and closures. The Silverado being unseated from the #2 position by the RAM 1500. And, of course, the recent barrage of criticisms being levied at them by the President of the United States, as a result of their ever-diminishing presence in Detroit. And while some would argue that their...

Missy 'Misdemeanor" Elliott: the new face of Mazda?
In a display of arbitrary popularity surge unseen since all of social media decided to collectively canonize Keanu Reeves as some sort of earthbound demigod, Missy' Misdemeanor' Elliott is currently being hoisted up by the masses after receiving MTV's Video Vanguard award last month. Now…you might be confused by the realization that MTV still values music - or even...

This Fall…Disneyland…Bieber v. Cruise

Stats for the Bieber vs Cruise fight are side-by-side with the 2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Dodge Journey sponsors.
Just when a lull in automotive headlines made it seem like random conversations comparing the 2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Dodge Journey could end up being the premier automotive headline of the summer, the seeds of a more compelling showdown were being sowed (not that that’s saying much). On June 9th, Justin Bieber set Twitter (as well as Scientology, the...

Puerto Rican Governor Resigns. But What About that Truck?

The Chevy symbol is over Rosselló's face in front of the Puerto Rican flag because his old Suburban may be a valuable used car for sale.
If you’re searching used cars for sale in San Juan, Puerto Rico - and are interested in a fully-loaded lightly-used bulletproof Chevy Suburban - well, it looks like you’ve missed your chance. With the word ‘embattled’ being thrown around at almost unprecedented levels, the public outcry against 2nd-generation Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rosselló compelled the corrupt and clearly unqualified elected...
