2020 GMC Sierra HD: Bigger and bolder in every way

The 2020 GMC Sierra HD is now bigger, stronger, and equipped with a bewildering array of new technology. Naturally, the new GMC Sierra HD is still available in 2500 and 3500 and is based on the new Chevrolet Silverado HD.

With Audi Holoride, I was the Disney VR hero in the backseat of an e-tron

With Audi Holoride, I was the Disney VR hero in the backseat of an e-tron

From the outside, it looks as though I'm in the back seat of a new Audi e-tron, being driven around Speed Vegas for roughly two laps. Look closer, though, and I'm not making awkward small-talk with my driver: instead, I donned a set of Oculus Rift virtual reality glasses, was handed a controller, and set to work being among the first to experience Holoride's vision of next-gen in-car entertainment.

Dinosaurs, Drones and Infiniti SUVs: A grand Gobi Desert adventure

Dinosaurs, Drones and Infiniti SUVs: A grand Gobi Desert adventure

You don't typically find too many Infiniti cars in the Gobi Desert, mainly just humungous poisonous spiders and feisty scorpions. Oh, and dinosaur fossils, which is why the automaker teamed up with the Hong Kong chapter of The Explorers Club, to revisit and rewrite the rules of exploration - and put the QX50, QX60, and QX80 SUVs through their paces in the process.

Audi e-tron GT Concept First Drive: Welcome to the future

Audi e-tron GT Concept First Drive: Welcome to the future

When you get the opportunity to drive a concept car, and to be ahead of a superhero like Tony Stark, you don't say no. No, I’m not the genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist I wanted to be growing up - I’m still working on that - but getting to try out the Audi e-tron GT Concept is perhaps the next best thing.

2019 Audi e-tron SUV First Drive Review

2019 Audi e-tron SUV First Drive Review

When I got the chance to test drive the new Audi e-tron in the deserts of Namibia, it was clear Audi hadn't developed an electric SUV merely for tarmac roads. While most drivers won't experience it, it turned out to be quite the thrill to drift an electric SUV. Indeed as far as I can remember, it's probably the most fun I've had behind the wheel of a luxury SUV.

Audi e-tron GT Concept is a drop-dead gorgeous 4-door EV

Audi e-tron GT Concept is a drop-dead gorgeous 4-door EV

When you're building an electric supercar, who better than Tony Stark to give it that superstar shine. "I've been having an extramarital affair with Audi for more than a decade now," Robert Downey Jr jokingly quips at the unveil of the Audi GT Concept. Downey took the stage with legendary automotive designer Marc Lichte, to pull the wraps off a jaw-dropping car that, though dubbed a concept, is in fact an astonishing 99-percent product ready.

2019 Toyota RAV4 first drive review: Compact SUV makes huge improvements

2019 Toyota RAV4 first drive review: Compact SUV makes huge improvements

It’s been 22 years since the first-generation Toyota RAV4 arrived in US shores. Back then, compact-based crossovers or small SUVs were as ubiquitous as smartphones, emojis, and selfies - in short, it was a tiny market, compared to the behemoth it has become today. Who would have thought larger SUVs would take the place of family sedans or station wagons as the everyday driver?

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: you’ll wish you could get one

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: you’ll wish you could get one

2018 is perhaps one of Huawei's most exciting years yet. Almost like the script for a Hollywood blockbuster, the year began with a tragedy that seemed like a death sentence for the protagonist. It left its hero in a period of limbo, its future uncertain. But like the true star of its story, Huawei’s perseverance responded with vengeance, putting out smartphones that consumers will want to grab but, due to some circumstances beyond their control, cannot.

2020 Toyota Corolla sedan official: Sharper and safer

2020 Toyota Corolla sedan official: Sharper and safer

It could well be Toyota's most important car, and so the 2020 Corolla is leaving nothing to chance. The sedan version of the 12th generation Corolla made its debut today, and it's promising just as much driver engagement, tech, and style as the 2019 Corolla hatchback launched earlier this year.

2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible revealed: This is the M850i droptop

2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible revealed: This is the M850i droptop

The 2019 BMW 8 Series is a unique car for BMW. It’s not as plush or excessively luxurious as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, nor is it as aggressively sporting as a Porsche 911 or Aston Martin Vantage. There are, it turns out, a whole host of ways to build a grand tourer. Where the Aston Martin DB11 is a sporty GT, the all-new 8-Series is a more elegant way to transport four people - and their four golf bags. With the new 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible, meanwhile, you can do so with the top down.

2019 Audi e-tron first drive review: Drifting an EV SUV

2019 Audi e-tron first drive review: Drifting an EV SUV

Technically speaking, my first drive of the all-new, fully electric 2019 Audi e-tron never saw its cutting-edge electronically controlled all-wheel drive system touch a public road in Namibia, South Africa. The all-electric SUV isn't due to reach US roads until next year, but when Audi asked us if we wanted to put its new EV quattro system through its paces well in advance, we didn't turn the automaker down. Turns out, while the new e-tron may not quite be ready for release, that doesn't mean it's not up for some seriously silly drifting.

Driving the $3m Bugatti Chiron was nothing like I expected

Driving the $3m Bugatti Chiron was nothing like I expected

The Bugatti Chiron is the holy grail of hyper-fast production cars. At the vanguard of engineering and design, it's a big car with big numbers. It also comes with an astronomical price tag: $2.98M before you start piling on any options. Now, $3 million is a lot of money - even for folks with the financial means to even consider a Bugatti in the first place - but the price is an indication of the performance, top speed, and general refinement of the Chiron. It is a ridiculous car that transcends boundaries.
