When talking about how far we’ve come in the field of mechanical engineering, there’s no better way to put an exclamation point at the end of your sentence than to spotlight a seriously powerful supercar. The brand-new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR, coming soon to qualifying automotive retailers, is a perfect example. There has never been a faster Viper built that is also street-legal; it was specifically designed to dominate each road it barrels down and every race track it tackles.
If this past winter in Massachusetts was any indication of years to come, even subcompact vehicles are going to need serious capability to navigate the state’s snow-packed streets.

One’s a muscle car enthusiast with strong opinions and a short fuse. One’s a talking monkey with a banana in his holster, a chip on his shoulder and a lot to prove. Together, they fight crime. Crimes of passion — or rather a lack thereof — involving incredible vehicles. There are some things you just don’t do in a Dodge — that’s Dodge Law.
When the all-new Jeep Cherokee first hit the market in 2013 for the 2014 model year, some off-roading purists questioned whether the sleek and fuel-efficient midsize SUV could hold its own off the beaten path like its rugged brand-mates. Fast-forward to 2015, however, and those doubts have largely faded into the background, with Four Wheeler magazine recently naming the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk its Four Wheeler of the Year.

During last Sunday’s American Music Awards, you might have seen some bombastic commercials starring some of the music industry’s hottest stars and Chrysler’s hottest vehicles. That’s because Chrysler and Interscope Records teamed up to produce five commercial spots, each spotlighting a different brand owned by the automaker set to some of the latest and greatest musical hits.
The Ford F-150 has stolen recent headlines after switching to a lightweight all-aluminum body for the 2015 model year, but that controversial move wasn’t enough to earn the vehicle the title of 2015 Green Truck of the Year from Green Car Journal.

Jeep is rapidly approaching a sales record: one million Jeeps sold for the 2014 calendar year. The release of the 2015 Jeep Renegade could be the final push the automaker needs to reach the impressive milestone. The U.S. release date for the compact crossover has not yet been confirmed, but the all-new Renegade is primed to make a big impact on the growth of the Jeep brand.
Pickup-truck manufacturers frequently make contradicting claims regarding best-in-class capability, which is why the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) created its J2807 towing standards to place them all on the same playing field.
