Subaru has, for the most part, ignored the SUV market, until now. Subaru’s latest vehicle is a new SUV with a new engine. Of course it will be all-wheel drive. The Subaru Ascent comes with a new 2.4-liter engine in the usual boxer configuration. This engine has 10.6:1 compression (higher than normal for Subaru) and a twin-scroll turbocharger with intercooler. All of this means that it will have 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a CVT style and can tow up to 5,000-lbs. The wheel base is 113.8-inches with 153.5 cubic...

If the latest Tesla Gen2 Roadster makes it to market (slated for 2020) it will be the fastest production car to date, with a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds. That is insanely fast but will cost you around $200,000. 0-100 mph is expected to be just 4.2 seconds and the quarter mile would be under 9 seconds! Top speed wasn’t officially posted but Elon Musk hinted at 250 mph+. The specs are almost too good to be true. The battery is a massive 200kWh pack with a 620-mile range per charge.

If you drive a car, it is only a matter of time before a rock gets kicked up and leaves a nice chip or crack on your windshield. Such is life I suppose. Normally when you get a chip in the windshield glass (often called a bullseye, star, or crack) it is an expensive repair or a call to the insurance company. That is no longer the case with this inexpensive windshield chip repair kit at just $8. Read the instructions first and watch a couple of videos before...

Apparently this is a “thing” as there are multiple manufacturers of this car tent umbrella gadget. I have yet to see one of these car tent things in the real world. For around $239 you can have a remote controlled umbrella for your car. You simply put it on the roof of your car, hit the button on the remote, watch it unfold, then strap it down. Or you could buy a car cover for $20. I’m...

The car sunshade is great for protecting the dash and interior of your car while keeping the interior temperature down a bit. All fine and dandy, but the Car Full Of Cats Sunshade is so much more. For one, duh, it makes it look like you have a car full of cats but more importantly it lets the world know you DGAF. It is 50″ x 27.5″ which should fit most cars. Includes two suction cups for easy installation. ...

  The Moke started as a British military vehicle in the 1950’s and became an instant classic. It was built by the British Motor Company (BMC) and Alec Issigonis, the father of the original Austin Mini. It looks like the Moke might be making a comeback, this time in America and with an all electric option as well. The gas powered Moke starts at $24,000 and the electric model starts at $16,000.

This new style of tow truck can have a car moved in less than 60 seconds! This seems like what the guys in the movie “Gone in 60 seconds” should have been using. It certainly would have been a lot less dramatic anyway. Check out the video of this super fast tow truck after the break. ...

This $52,500 pickup truck is a bit like a Chevy Volt. It has a 60-kilowatt battery with an 80-mile electric range. Should you deplete your battery, a BMW three-cylinder engine wakes up and charges the battery. The W-15 gets to 6o mph in about 5.5-seconds with 460 horsepower and all wheel drive. Additionally the Workhorse W-15 pickup truck has ports for powering tools, work lights, and other gadgetry. More pictures and video after the break.

The gap between the front car seats and the center console is a black hole. This space between the seat and console has the ability to eat car keys, cell phones, food scraps, and just about anything else. Considering how thin this space is it is amazing how much it manages to catch. There is a simple an inexpensive solution for this gap with names like
