I've had an ATS-V all weekend, and I noticed that there's quite a bit of room under the hood around the current 3.6L Twin Turbo V6. Of course more weight forward could shift some balance, but I'm...

Hilux and Tacoma are nearly the same size... Toyota would not make a killing selling Hilux in the states, it's more for less developed countries, harder road conditions, higher payloads etc, since...

Outside/front is maybe a little more interesting, but the interior is too carlike for my tastes. I like the slightly trucky look of the upcoming 2016 Tacoma quite a bit.

Agree, this one steps backwards a bit. Biggest problem is with interior space efficiency for its exterior size. Platform mate Taurus also suffers from this.

Looks like it still doesn't have Sync...

The refreshed GS and ES taillights may not look "right" because they are redoing the interior of the lamps while keeping the housing shape the same. This eliminates the need to change and stamping...

Cadillac's OEM grille was a bit more tasteful.

Dynamically the base ATS and CTS platforms have been proven to be quite dynamic and well reviewed... I have no doubt the ATS-V reviews, which will be out very very shortly, will be quite positive.

It's funny that you noted a "low cargo floor" as a minus, as that deep well is what makes a minivan so attractive, expanding the cargo capacity behind the third row immensely over what almost any 3...

MMarshall, this is absolutely true for the country as a whole. Sales for the 500 peaked in 2012, and have continued to decline since then. Despite what you may "feel" about your small data slice of...

While they lost their way for a bit, I think they're getting some of their swagger back. New Accord is quite nice, and the refreshes made to the ILX, at least in terms of powertrain, really bring it...
