2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport: A Turn-Key Track Weapon  Nov 19th, 2015 
When the Cayman made its debut in 2006, Porsche was clear about its role in the company’s official motorsports program: There wouldn’t be any. At that time, racing was the sole province of the 911. But wait, what’s this? A Cayman with a roll cage. And a gutted interior with set of Schroth six-point racing […] 
 
 
The New Valet: How Cutting-Edge Parking Tech Works [Sponsored]  Nov 19th, 2015 
For most motorists, parking is the most loathed aspect of driving. Whether it’s parallel parking in a tight spot on a busy urban street or navigating the chaos of a crammed lot, there’s no doubt parking can be a stressful experience. The opportunity for a bump, scrape or scratch looms around every corner Innovations surrounding […] 
 
 
2016 Toyota RAV4: The Regular One Detailed  Nov 19th, 2015 
You’re forgiven for thinking you’ve seen the 2016 Toyota RAV4 someplace before—you have. Toyota introduced the first-ever RAV4 hybrid, as well as a sporty SE model, seven months ago at the 2015 New York auto show. (Toyota even released pricing for the entire 2016 lineup before officially showing the standard RAV4.) For whatever reason, Toyota […]

2017 Fiat 124 Spider Prima Edizione Lusso: The Ultra-Rare 124 Launch Edition  Nov 19th, 2015 
It seems that every time a highly anticipated new model debuts, it hits the scene with an attendant launch edition with special trim, paint colors, and a heart-swelling numbered plaque. Like a solid slap on the back, these limited-edition launch cars reassure their owners that, someday, their prize may glint under the lights of a Barrett-Jackson or […]

Hammer Time: What to Know About Buying a Car at Auction  Nov 19th, 2015 
You wouldn’t know it from the road, but there are typically around 4000 vehicles tucked away awaiting sale at the Copart auction facility in Newburgh, New York.

The First Turbocharged Lamborghini Will Be the Urus SUV  Nov 19th, 2015 
Lamborghini’s CEO Stefan Winkelman has been outspoken in the past about his distaste for downsizing engines, turbochargers, and hybrid powertrains. That’s why the Aventador and Huracan have remained blissfully naturally aspirated and use tech like auto start-stop and cylinder deactivation to help the small manufacturer meet emissions targets. But soon Lamborghini will double the size of […] 
 
 
How We’d Spec It: Our 2016 Cadillac CT6? A Hot Rod with a Sound System  Nov 19th, 2015 
Cadillac’s new CT6 is an interesting proposition. The GM unit’s interim flagship sits above the CTS, but ultimately will acquiesce its de facto slot at the top of the Cad pyramid to a true S-class competitor. Price-wise, the newest Cadillac starts at $54,490 for a base, turbo-four-powered model. Tick all the boxes and you’ve added […] 
 
 
Do I need a 3/4 ton or 1/2 ton pickup?  Nov 19th, 2015 
The question of weather you should buy a 3/4 or 1/2 ton pickup is one I get asked alot.  The answer is somewhat complicated but all depends on your situation.  Are you going to be pulling with the truck? If you are pulling how heavy of a load and how far a distance?  If you are going to be using it for hauling stuff in the bed you have to decide how much  and how often? 
    If you are not going to be pulling anything and just using the bed to haul stuff you need to look at the payload.  In a 1/2 ton truck you can expect the payload to be up to 3000 lbs, but personally I wouldn't carry more than 1000-1500 lbs in the box.  If you have ever drove a truck with too much weight in the box it is plain scarry.  In a 3/4 ton your payload reccomendation is 3000-4000 lbs ,  lets face it if you are going to be hauling  a heavy payload in your truck quite often you need a 3/4 ton, if only once in a while a 1/2 ton will work fine.  
    Towing is where a 3/4 ton really shines.  I have pulled a lot of trailers, boats and campers, some small some very large and the feel with a 3/4 ton is so much more stable and safer feeling that I try to always pull with a 3/4 ton.  If you are only going to be pulling a small utility trailer, 16 ft or under boat or pop up camper a 1/2 ton will do just fine.  Manufactures say you can pull up to 10,000 lbs with a 1/2 ton truck, but if you are going to be pulling a lot you won't like how it handles the load.  Three quarter ton trucks can pull up to 13,000 lbs.  We pull a 45 foot flatbed with a Ford 3/4 ton and it handles it great.  If you decide on a 3/4 ton , then you have to figure out weather you need a gas or diesel, we will talk about that another time .  If you have a larger camper, especially a 5 th wheel, or 20 ft  boat you want a 3/4 ton.
   A great place to find information on each model of pickup is at www.newcartestdrive.com it tells you the specs and there impression of the vehicle.  We carry  between 30-40 trucks of all sizes so go to www.bnbautosales.com to see what truck will work for you.
 
 
 
 
 
2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Not Immortal, But It Has Been Updated  Nov 19th, 2015 
In Highlander, an immortal Scot born in the 16th century lives in the present day. In Outlander, a 1940s woman is cast back into 18th-century Scotland. In Outlander Sport, there’s a new grille and a few other things, but it’s the same basic machine that bowed for the 2011 model year, oddly making the Outlander […] 
 
 
2016 BMW i3 Shadow Sport Edition Announced, Has a Sunroof  Nov 19th, 2015 
Attention, all enthusiasts of carbon-fiber-intensive electric cars: The BMW i3 now can be had with an electrically powered sunroof. Until now, U.S.-market i3s were unavailable with glass in their roofs, even as overseas versions had offered one since the car’s 2013 debut.

From the January 2016 issue You may not be surprised to hear that cars do not spring all shiny and dew-studded from beneath lily pads, ready to hit the road.

The 2016 Elantra sedan has only been on sale for a few months, but Hyundai already is ushering it off the stage, as it has rolled out the redesigned, 2017 version.

2017 Buick LaCrosse Revealed: Its Looks Might Thrill  Nov 18th, 2015 
Through two generations, the Buick LaCrosse has barely registered on the Car and Driver radar screen.

The LaCrosse, like its rivals, has delivered essentially zero driving enjoyment for enthusiasts […]

2017 Mercedes-Benz SL Revealed, Sports a New Look  Nov 18th, 2015 
Ever since the 300SL was launched in the 1950s, Mercedes-Benz’s flagship roadster has been an icon of style. The original 300SL inspired the elegant 190SL, and the later “Pagoda” version, designed by Paul Bracq, stood out for its lithe, compact shape. The R129, launched in 1989, was the epitome of sleek modernism. But something went […]

When Mazda debuted the surprisingly lightweight fourth-generation MX-5 Miata this year, it detailed an obsessive campaign to cut needless mass in the tiny sports car. We won’t go into all of those measures here but for one of our favorites: The 2016 Miata’s pared-back, clipped corners. Essentially, Mazda lopped the corners off of the car […]

“I am Quadrifoglio!

2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2: The 2WD Huracán Arrives!  Nov 17th, 2015 
Six years ago, Lamborghini put a stripe on a special-edition Gallardo and named it in honor of Valentino Balboni, the company’s longtime test driver. While toiling away over the sticker package, Lambo’s engineers also yanked the front differential and slightly detuned the car, creating the rear-wheel-drive Gallardo LP550-2. Here, finally, was a machine that put […]

Many carmakers are fond of employing the term “DNA” in describing their vehicle lineups, but few have as much product justification for doing so as Mazda, and fewer still exhibit as much restraint. We hear a lot about zoom-zoom, of course, but that, too, seems justified. From top to bottom, Mazda’s offerings are uniquely uniform […] 
 
 
Jean Genie: Volkswagen Introduces Beetle Convertible Denim  Nov 17th, 2015 
Earlier this year, when Volkswagen trotted out its Beetle Denim concept at the New York Auto Show, we lamented that VW hadn’t wholly resurrected the dippier “Jeans” trim from the 1970s.

Even without four-wheel drive, the rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive original Volkswagen Beetle made a credible off-roader—so much so that there was a whole class for modified Beetles in the Baja 1000. And Baja-style Bugs were a popular modification. With their bumpers removed, fenders shortened, engine exposed, and beefier wheels fitted, they managed to look mean and purposeful at […]

Never a Doubt: GMC Finally Releases the Canyon Denali We’ve Been Expecting  Nov 17th, 2015 
As we’ve suspected pretty much since GMC reintroduced its Canyon mid-size pickup for 2015, there will be an upscale Denali trim level, and it’s coming late next year as a 2017 model. GMC has finally revealed the Canyon Denali, and it traces the now-familiar (and 17 years old!) luxe Denali theme perfectly. The Denali package includes the […] 
 
 
2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate: The Pinnacle of the Pickup Pinnacle  Nov 17th, 2015 
The Denali name already carries with it the implied top-dogness you’d expect being derived from the name of the highest mountain peak in the United States. GMC, though, describes the new-for-2016 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate as the “pinnacle of premium.” Technically, Denali is the peak—maybe the Denali Ultimate the lookout post perched atop that peak?

The formula for the compact crossover is not a complicated one: Combine space and utility with a modicum off-road capability and an elevated seating position. Because of this, players in the white-hot segment must work extra hard to stand out from the bunch. To make a mark with the 2017 Escape, Ford’s strategy is to […]

If you were to take a list of the most popular cars in each state in the U.S., it’d be a pretty predictable list. The Ford F-150 would feature prominently, along with the Chevy Silverado, and of course the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. But we were curious: What car is the most overrepresented […]

Kia has announced it is adding a stand-alone hybrid model to its fleet, although with a twist.

By traditional size and body-style classification, the BMW 6-series is now an outlier—it’s bigger than all the two-door luxury coupes, save the even larger, more expensive S-class coupe from Mercedes-Benz. In the mid-size luxury segment, sales instead tilt toward fast-roofed four-doors exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7—even within the 6-series range, the […]
