2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L First Drive Review: A three-row SUV worth the wait

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L First Drive Review: A three-row SUV worth the wait

When you arrive late, you can either slink in through the back door, or make a dramatic entrance: Jeep chose the latter. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L may be the first three-row of its lineage, but arrives to a crowded market of strong rivals. That it manages to stand out among that group is a testament to just how big an improvement this SUV is over its predecessors.

2022 Honda Civic Sedan First Drive: Touching Greatness

2022 Honda Civic Sedan First Drive: Touching Greatness

It's hard to express just how important the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan is. Gateway to Honda ownership, nearly 3 out of every 4 Civic buyers end up coming back to buy another Honda: screw up your updated model, then, and you're basically saying goodbye to a generation of new brand loyalists.

2021 Chevrolet Corvette Review: Conversation Starter

2021 Chevrolet Corvette Review: Conversation Starter

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is a very fast car, but it's slow to leave a parking lot. That's not down to this eighth-generation of Chevy's attainable sports car but rather a testament to the fact that, as a bonafide example of four-wheel Americana, someone, somewhere, always wants to start a conversation about why the 'Vette is special.

Beats Studio Buds Review: Balance and Sacrifice

Beats Studio Buds Review: Balance and Sacrifice

Beats' earbuds are getting into the active noise cancellation game, with the Beats Studio Buds also promising a much smaller package and more flexible product than its previous wireless headphones. The ANC earbud and headphone space is hotly-competitive right now, with mainstays like Apple's AirPods Pro going toe-to-toe with Sony's new WF-1000XM4, Google's Pixel Buds A, and a host of rivals. The big question, then, is whether Beats' mix of tight cross-platform compatibility can give its $149.99 Studio Buds an edge.

Here’s the first trailer for Bethesda’s Starfield Xbox exclusive

Here’s the first trailer for Bethesda’s Starfield Xbox exclusive

Most of us probably assumed that this was going to be a big E3 for Microsoft, and while the show is just getting underway, the company opened its reveal event with a bang. Rather than Xbox boss Phil Spencer opening the event, we were instead greeted by Bethesda director Todd Howard, who showed off the very first trailer for Starfield. This reveal has been a long time coming, but unfortunately, we didn't get to see a whole lot of the game in it.

2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon Review: Family Fortune

2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon Review: Family Fortune

Look, I have already sung the praises of wagons. I have waxed about their practicality; shook my fist at the sky and howled about their aesthetic superiority. I have made it abundantly clear that I am on Team Wagon, and so the fact that the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon has an early advantage with me should come as little surprise.

Jeep spent $1.6bn on the future home of its new hybrid SUV – and invited me inside

Jeep spent $1.6bn on the future home of its new hybrid SUV – and invited me inside

Usually, seeing the underside of a new car on a launch event is a sign that something went terribly wrong. Even before I'd touched the wheel of the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, though, I'd seen it stripped back to bare metal. The automaker knows that perceived quality is key to nudging the first three-row Grand Cherokee upmarket, and that involved a tour of where they build it - and a preview of what's to come.

2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Review: Blunt Honesty

2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Review: Blunt Honesty

Everything about the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is ridiculous. The 6.2-liter supercharged V8 good for 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque is ridiculous, as is a supercar-shaming 3.6 second 0-60 mph. Driving this SRT madness - in, you'll note, ridiculous "Hellraisin" purple - requires a suspension of not only disbelief but any scraps of self-consciousness you might have left.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review – PlayStation 5 is off to a strong start

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review – PlayStation 5 is off to a strong start

It’s been a while since we last heard from our buddies Ratchet and Clank. Not only has it been five years since the last Ratchet & Clank game, titled simply Ratchet & Clank, but that one was only a reimagining of the original game from 2002. To find the last proper Ratchet & Clank release, you have to go back all the way back to 2013 and the release of Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Back then, I remember hearing some question of whether or not the Ratchet & Clank series had worn out its welcome after a packed 13 years of releases. After some time off, the pair are back to usher in the PS5 era along with some new friends in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021) Review: Alexa’s best display yet

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021) Review: Alexa’s best display yet

The pandemic has made clear that low-resolution webcams are only the tip of the video calling iceberg: in an ideal world we'd all have our own cameraperson to make sure the angles were perfect. That's what Amazon's Echo Show 8 (2nd Generation) promises, turning Alexa into your personal videographer but - to keep the new smart display to $130 - with no moving parts involved.

2022 Ford Maverick is a $20k hybrid pickup for a new type of truck owner

2022 Ford Maverick is a $20k hybrid pickup for a new type of truck owner

The 2022 Ford Maverick is the truck, the automaker says, for those who didn't know they wanted a truck, and with a hybrid engine as standard despite a starting price around $20k, it could be right. Announced today, this baby brother to the Ford F-150 and Ranger brings back a classic nameplate for a modern pickup, including a serious nod to the maker community.
