An old saying goes; “The best used luxury car to buy is the newest one you can afford.” After all, while the price of entry might be well within reach of the average individual, maintenance expenses can often be reasonable only to those who could afford to buy the car new. If something goes terribly wrong, repair costs can sometimes mitigate much of the savings you achieved. Of course, purchasing a certified pre-owned luxury car could do much to alleviate this worry, which is why it is one of these 10 best reasons to buy a used luxury car.


  1. More car for less money
  2. Manufacturer's certified pre-owned programs
  3. Third party extended warranties
  4. In general, you'll experience less depreciation
  5. Good independent mechanics
  6. Think domestic
  7. Driving a lesser car won't suit you
  8. Advanced safety equipment
  9. Leading edge comfort and convenience features

These two unlikely combatants scrap for the title of the best everyday American sports car. And America wins . . . again!


We set out to find the best American sports car that a successful, but not necessarily rich, person could attain. We would want road-course competence from our winner, but not at the expense of real-world drivability, since it is sadly the real world in which we spend most of our time. Our winner should look fast, sound fast, and be fast. But most important, it should be thrilling to drive.

2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black

2018 Ram 1500 Sport Moves Out of the Crosshairs, Big Horn Goes Black


Ram is continuing to slowly phase out its brand’s cross-hair grille, as the 2018 Ram 1500 Sport and Ram Heavy Duty pickups equipped with the Sport Appearance package adopt a variant of the snout found on the Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and the new-for-2018 Ram Limited Tungsten trims. As on those Ram trims, the 2018 Sport and Sport Appearance package’s body-color grille is distinguished by its pig-like nostrils and large “R-A-M” script and is paired with either black or chrome wheels and badges.

The cross-hair grille design can be traced back to the 1986 Dodge Ram. Now that Ram is no longer a part of the Dodge brand, it’s not surprising the relatively young truck brand is trying to separate itself from its Dodge brand mates that also use the cross-hair grille.

Still, Ram isn’t abandoning its former face overnight, and the new-for-2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black continues to bear the cross-hair mug of Rams past. Looking much like the Ram 1500 Black Express that was introduced in 2013, the Big Horn Black features black paint, black wheels, black badges, and black headlight bezels. Unlike the lesser Ram 1500 Black Express, the 2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black features convenience items such as an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 7.0-inch gauge cluster display.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS - Test Review

Your quiet suburban cul-de-sac has officially been put on notice.

"THIS THING CAN BARELY CONTAIN ITS RAGE. IT'S A BERSERKER."
- DANIEL PUND, DEPUTY EDITOR


Chevrolet’s all-new, sixth-generation 2016 Camaro is lighter and more powerful. It’s a more disciplined machine with meaningful control feel. Its steering, balance, and ability to engage its driver are all unquestionably improved relative to the car it replaces. None of that matters to the wider populace, because, let’s face it, Camaros are for burnouts. And rubber will be melted during this test, no doubt.

Because excess is the whole point in Camaro-land, we outfitted ours with the most powerful engine then available, the 455-hp LT1. Mated with a six-speed manual and a limited-slip differential, the small-block made many friends during its time here. The 2016 V-8–equipped SS coupe started at $37,295, and we added only five options. The $5000 2SS package provided heated and ventilated power seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen. Our only per­form­ance add-ons were the $1695 magnetic-ride-control suspension and the $895 dual-mode exhaust, but we also tacked on the $495 Mylink audio system with navigation and black 20-inch, five-spoke wheels for $200. All in, a $45,580 Camaro.
