2019 Ram 1500 Spied with Minimal Camo! 2019 Ram 1500 Spied with Minimal Camo!
- What It Is: Clad in minimal camo, the next Ram 1500 has been spotted with its new grille largely on display for all to see. The revised unit is hexagonal and perhaps a mite Audi-esque, not quite as dominant a piece as the big-rig maws that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ trucks have been wearing since...

More Oomph, Even Weirder Looks: Toyota Shows C-HR Hy-Power Concept More Oomph, Even Weirder Looks: Toyota Shows C-HR Hy-Power Concept
- Our prevailing impressions of the new Toyota C-HR thus far have been twofold: 1. It looks weird, and 2. It’s slow. Now Toyota has doubled down on the former and, perhaps, fixed the latter with a new concept called the C-HR Hy-Power, on display at the Frankfurt auto show. It combines some even...

- Its proportions have hardly changed, which is a good thing: We’re charging along and barely being noticed.

- Imagine it’s the future. You’re driving at night, high-beams blazing. You didn’t have to remember to turn them on—they brightened automatically. As you approach an oncoming vehicle, your high-tech lights—which make thousands of individual points of light and use data from the car’s onboard...

- What It Is: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ money-making Ram 1500 truck is getting a major overhaul, and it’s about time—this generation was introduced for the 2009 model year. We expect styling will be evolutionary, and that Ram won’t follow Ford down the aluminum road, using a steel bed and...

I wonder if you, dear readers, share this same frustration in car ownership. Back in the day, when a headlight in your car went out, you just went to your local parts store, bought a replacement headlight (not just a bulb, but the whole darn headlight), unscrewed the old one, screwed in the new one,...
