People asked, so we did it: drove the 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid up our rocky forest road test route. How did it do? Watch the video:
We took the 2019 Ford Ranger on an adventure in the Pacific Northwest as part of our review. Our test truck was the Lariat trim with FX4 package. Price as tested: just over $45,000.
We decided to see what the little HR-V could handle off-road. Did it come back in one piece?
This week we take a look at the new 2019 Acura NSX - how it drives and how it’s built. Intro shot was in Matt Farah’s Westside Collector Car Storage, the rest was in Malibu.
We took the new 2019 Honda Passport onto a purpose-built off-road course to have some fun and make comparisons.
Whether you are a pro off-roader or a total n00b, the Trail Control system on the new 2019 Ranger FX4 and the F150 Raptor can be a nice feature. It’s like cruise control over challenging surfaces. In this video Ryan tests it out on the new Ranger XLT FX4 during the Northwest Auto Press Association’s off-road test day.
I was down in California a couple weeks ago filming Matt’s Countach, Larry’s AMMO NYC video about the Acura NSX Paint (which came out pretty good imho, check it out on his channel) and some other things.

Party like it’s 1988 all over again with Farah’s Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV. Filmed last week just outside of Malibu, California.
I revisit the Kia Soul this week with a direct comparison to Toyota’s weird small car: the 2019 C-HR.
In a new video I reviewed the 2020 Kia Soul (embedded below). In it, I compare it heavily against the Honda Civic, a car that I see as the “go to” commuter car option. A commenter complained that the Civic and the Soul don’t compete. I disagree. But I was curious what other enthusiasts thought. Kia Soul owners I…
I drive the 2020 Kia Soul, the third generation of a car I’ve never liked. Is this one finally decent?
We filmed this one last year and finally finished the review yesterday. That’s how exciting the 2019 Kia Sorento is. Is it bad? Certainly not. Watch for more.

We flew to Wisconsin and froze our arses off to bring you this all-new video! Driving technique: all-wheel drive versus rear-wheel drive with tips from rally driver Patrik Sandell.
Right after we had the Jag delivered, Seattle was dumped on by record snowfall. Still, we pressed on and shot this review of the Jaguar all-electric:
