Scrounger’s Guide: Vortec 8.1L V8s

First Look: Lexus J201 Concept

When you say the name, “Lexus,” hard-core off-roading, or even today’s current “it” activity of rugged-terrain overlanding certainly aren’t uses that immediately come to mind for its SUVs. Sure, several of the brand’s utility offerings bring plenty of performance to the table for “spirited” on-road driving experiences. But for all intents and purposes, luxury is

What It’s Like to Drive the 2020 Suzuki Jimny

Compared with many of today’s compact SUVs the 2020 Suzuki Jimny is slow, crude, and cramped. It drives a lot like a mid-’80s rear-drive Japanese car.
