Saturdays 10am – 12pm
Looking at Toyota’s new-for-’17 iconic mileage champ, I couldn’t help but wonder why Toyota chose to make it so….ahh…..distinctive with their latest re-do.
Look out, Germany……company’s comin’!
Workhorse or Showhorse?
I could try to be all nonchalant and make like I test $160K vehicles everyday, but hey…..I don’t. And I bet you don’t either, right? It’s a world to which I’m not accustomed.
Maybe I’ve just seen too many humble sedans and coupes tack on a “GT” or an “S” to their name…..maybe add a stripe or spoiler….and parade around as something that they’re not. Not this little guy.
“Tire-Smokin’ Eager Acceleration” are not words usually used to describe SUVs….but it is what it is.
Luxury, performance and technology….Audi seems to have the big three bases pretty well covered. From there, it just becomes a matter of “what size do you want it in?”
Explosive yet muted……soft yet firm……contradictions, perhaps, but not when describing Mercedes’ ’17 GLS450.
If you’ve got a couple of full sleeves goin’…maybe weigh in around 300 plus or minus a little….and plan your vacations around Sturgis and Daytona, you might want a different truck.
I was actually multi-tasking when I took delivery of Nissan’s ‘17 Armada…lunching with a client and talking on the cell, so I took a real quick look…grabbed the keys of this big, blocky SUV and thought, “Great…another Infiniti QX80.”
