2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing First Drive Review: A Hero’s Farewell

2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing First Drive Review: A Hero’s Farewell

If you're bidding farewell to internal combustion, say goodbye with a bang. That's the recipe for the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, anyway, arriving just in time for the automaker to concede that gas engines have had their moment and electrification is the way forward. Question is, then, is today's Blackwing just tomorrow's dinosaur?

Pixel 6 revealed: Google previews its first custom Tensor Android chip

Pixel 6 revealed: Google previews its first custom Tensor Android chip

Google has revealed the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, spilling some early details about the upcoming Android flagships and the new Google Tensor chip that will power them. The two phones won't be released until later in 2021, but after plenty of leaks and speculation, Google has clearly decided it's better to join the discussion rather than watch its secrets get spilled early.

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

It seems a long time since I was lucky enough to get a first crack of the Audi e-tron GT about three years ago. At that point the sleek four-door EV was still a prototype, though even then its focus was fairly clear. While Audi's high-performance electric grand tourer may be the mechanical twin of the Porsche Taycan, here that all drives to a different tune. Porsche touts the Taycan as a four-door all-electric sportscar, as close right now to a four-seater electric 911 that you can get. Audi's e-tron GT, meanwhile, is a genuine grand tourer, albeit one with the same propensity for speed as the Taycan.

CDC: Vaccinated people should wear masks again – with a big exception

CDC: Vaccinated people should wear masks again – with a big exception

In a new media briefing today, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave its latest update on the COVID-19 pandemic, including the current state of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the United States, the vaccination program, and the ways in which the two intersect. As expected, the update also includes the CDC's latest information about its face mask guidance.

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

After a week with the Karma GS-6, the surprise wasn't that nobody knew what the plug-in hybrid was, it was just how much I liked it. While the design may be ten years old now, rarity on the roads - and a convoluted back story - means plenty of head-scratching when you try to explain just what this swooping sedan is. Then factor in the fairly unusual plug-in hybrid drivetrain, and the dramatic drop in price earlier this year.

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Review

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Review

It's probably fair to say that Toyota put hybrids on the map. The Prius defined the category, came to resemble every stereotype of a "green" car (and, for that matter, of your next Uber or Lyft), and for many has been a first taste of electrification. What's odd, then, is that it's taken until now - and the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime - for the automaker to get around to making a compelling plug-in hybrid.

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

Sometimes, expectations weigh heavy on you. Big names, promising big things, and with big implications: the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is a prime example. After spending two full days driving the German automaker's attempt to redefine luxury through Zurich, Switzerland, it almost comes as a relief to report that the EQS surpasses all my expectations of Mercedes-Benz. To risk a cliche, it's the S-Class of electric luxury, redefining what a modern-day high-end sedan embodies through form and function.

Driving GMC’s 2022 Sierra with auto lane-change Super Cruise feels like the future

Driving GMC’s 2022 Sierra with auto lane-change Super Cruise feels like the future

Cadillac may have launched Super Cruise, but it'll be GMC which launches the hands-free driver assistance tech into the heart of the mass market when it arrives on the new 2022 Sierra pickup. Not only will it feature the same on-demand lane change feature but, as I found behind the wheel of a prototype 2022 Sierra this week, a new automatic lane change option that promises to make highway driving even more relaxing.

This $465,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an unexpected lesson in simplicity

This $465,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an unexpected lesson in simplicity

Of all the things I expected from the 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge - an SUV with a near half-million-dollar price tag - a reminder of the value of simplicity was not among them. Launched in 2018, the Cullinan is as luxurious, as excessive, and as attention-grabbing as you'd think, particularly in Black Badge form. Look beyond the glitter, though, and there's something more important there too.

2021 GMC Yukon XL Denali Review: The Recipe Works

2021 GMC Yukon XL Denali Review: The Recipe Works

GMC is on a roll right now, and Denali is a big reason for that. The luxury sub-brand - success elevating it from being anything so pedestrian as a mere trim - has helped make SUVs like the 2021 GMC Yukon XL Denali so popular, dealers can't even get them in through the door before they're already sold.

iPhone SE 5G said on track as Apple makes drastic iPhone mini decision

Apple is readying a shake-up in its most affordable iPhone models, fresh leaks suggest, with a new iPhone SE 5G and the demise of the iPhone mini said to be on the cards. Not only will the iPhone 13 line-up - expected later in 2021 - consist of only 5G models, but the new budget iPhone SE will also embrace 5G technology.

IKEA Symfonisk Picture Frame Review: Art is in the ear of the beholder

IKEA Symfonisk Picture Frame Review: Art is in the ear of the beholder

For a while it seemed like IKEA and Sonos' Symfonisk collaboration had stalled, but the new Symfonisk Picture Frame is a reminder that, much like artwork, unusual tech can take time to create. Packaging a connected Sonos speaker into a piece of wall art, it bypasses the traditional aesthetic associated with home audio for something that - depending on your decor - will either be more or less surreptitious than anything else from Sonos' line-up.
