In the S:S:L Garage – 2021 Kia Sorrento X-Line

Full Review coming soon on this 2021 Kia Sorrento X-Line, but all you need to know is that you absolutely cannot miss going and driving the Sorrento if you are in the market for an SUV. This is the most impressive product packages I’ve driven in this class, and continues Kia’s homerun derby of killer products. The Sorrento X-Line’s design and color are striking, and the entire car just feels so much more expensive than it actually is.

More to come, but get to a Kia dealer now and test drive one for yourself!

2021 RAM 1500 TRX

One look at the 2021 RAM 1500 TRX and you know that this isn’t just any ordinary pickup truck. This is the widest, meanest, and fastest truck you can buy today, and there’s no bigger status symbol out on the trails today than the RAM 1500 TRX.

With the chiseled styling, 702-horsepower Hellcat engine, and incredible off-road capabilities engineered from the ground up, the RAM 1500 TRX seems like it’s the end-all, be-all pickup truck to end all rivalries, full-stop.

Well, it’s not quite that simple and after spending a week with the TRX there might actually be an upper limit to my tolerance of insane vehicles.

As mentioned in our conversation above, the 2021 Nissan Rogue is a huge step forward for the small crossover. It’s really impressive how well Nissan has managed to make the Rogue feel like a more upscale SUV while retaining a similar price point to its predecessor. This is definitely a small crossover that should be on any shopper’s list to check out.

2021 MINI John Cooper Works GP – Front-Wheel Drive Insanity

We’re living in the golden age of the automobile right now. You can buy purpose-built enthusiast versions of just about every kind of vehicle these days, from sedans to pickup trucks to wagons, and they all do a pretty good job of putting a smile on the driver’s face when pushed hard.

There is another tier that sits above those vehicles, though. A tier where just the thought of driving these vehicles gets the serotonin flowing, and a great sense of happiness overwhelms you. These are vehicles like the Mazda Miata, Porsche 911 GT3, anything with a Hellcat engine, the Jeep Wrangler or Ford Raptor, and a handful of other no-compromise performance enthusiast vehicles. These vehicles are all over the spectrum as to what they are good at, but they all exist to do one thing – bring the driver maximum joy when being used as designed.

Here recently, I had the opportunity to spend a week with the 2021 MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) GP, and the same feeling of immediate joy overcomes me a month later whenever I think about driving it. There are many reasons I shouldn’t like the car on paper but put rubber to the road and all that goes out the window.
