2015 Chevy Silverado 4.3 Review

Text by Yousef Alvi When we get press cars, usually it’s the manufacturer’s opportunity to put their best foot forward. To showcase their latest innovations – from engines, to infotainments systems, to driver aids, etc. Well this 2015 Chevy Silverado was a bit different. Did we get a high riding, brightly colored, off-roading, desert-running monster? Nope… we just got a truck. Okay did we get a high-tech, turbocharged, panoramic...

2015 Lincoln MKC 2.3 Ecoboost Review

If Lincoln really wants to shake things up as a luxury brand… they’re close. Here’s the thing – I honestly had a hard time trying to nail this car down.
