In this vehicle review, Aaron talks about the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica in its Hybrid format. This plug-in minivan offers a lot for the family of up to eight. A few things make the Paciifca stand out, even without the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drivetrain.
How do you off-road AND live in luxury? With Land Rover, of course. As the “lower end” (that’s entirely subjective) of the Jaguar Land Rover SUV offerings, the Land Rover line includes the extremely well-outfitted Discovery. In this review of the 2020 Discovery model, Aaron walks through its high points and talks off-roading in this luxurious SUV.
In this review, Aaron looks at the 2020 Outlander in its plug-in hybrid (PHEV) format. The Outlander GT PHEV is a big upgrade from the already well-done Outlander, but loses its third row option and gets a bit pricey. Find out what Aaron thinks and some of the features of this plug-in hybrid family ride.
In this question and answer video, Aaron answers a question about gasoline versus diesel fuels. Why is diesel more efficient? It comes down to physics and the properties of both the fuels and the engines that use them. Check it out.

Ford is resurrecting the legendary Mach 1 name for a new, limited edition performance variant of the Mustang coming in the 2021 model year. With teaser photos and a short announcement, Ford says the debut of the new Mustang Mach 1 will come very soon (“this spring” were the words used).
The Mach 1 first appeared in 1969 and was considered the epitome of performance for the Mustang pony car. This new version, Ford says, will have the same focus for the current-generation Mustang, using the 5.0-liter V8 now found in the car. Like the original version, the new Mach 1 will slot between the standard Mustang GT and the Shelby and Boss models.
“Mach 1 has a special place in Mustang history, and it’s time for this special edition to claim the top spot in our 5.0-liter V8 performance lineup and reward our most hardcore Mustang enthusiasts who demand that next level of power, precision and collectability,” said Dave Pericak, director, Ford Icons. “Like the original, the all-new Mustang Mach 1 will be true to its heritage, delivering great looks and as the most track-capable 5.0-liter Mustang ever.”
The original Mustang Mach 1 series, which ran for about 5 years from 1969 to 1974, was a limited edition seller in that it accounted for only a small percentage of overall Mustang sales. The same can be said of the Mach 1 return model that appeared in 2003-04. The 2021 model will be the “most track-ready 5.0-liter Mustang ever” and will have a limited number for production. Ford has not said how limited that may be or what the price tag will run on this special edition.
Whatever those numbers are, the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 is sure to be a highly sought after modern muscle car.
Most of us know someone who’s “into cars.” Sometimes it’s classics, sometimes it’s muscle cars, and occasionally it’s trucks or mechanics. Rarely is it all cars, all the time, of any kind. Meet fellow traveler Matt McIvor, who not only loves cars, but who also has a revolving collection of a dozen models at any given time.

Wagons aren’t dead. At least, not in the luxury realms. The 2020 Volvo V60 is a beautiful, classy, and very well done station wagon (excuse me, “Estate”) that offers a lot of goodness in its shapely form. Got a soft spot for wagons? This one’s for you.
In this Q&A, Aaron answers a question regarding keyless ignition. Specifically, the question of whether a vehicle that’s running can be driven away if the keyfob is not present. Aaron answers this question and cites the federal regulation that makes things the way they are.
