First Drive: 2020 Ford Explorer – Premium Pricing

For four generations, Ford offered the Explorer with rear-wheel drive as standard. It went front-drive for the fifth. Now, the standard drivetrain is rear-drive again. Back to basics, so to speak.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250: Pint-sized Practicality

There’s a new occupant in Mercedes-Benz’s cavernous utility vehicle stable, and, like so many vehicles debuting in 2019, it’s a tweener. As the name implies, the 2020 GLB fits between the subcompact GLA and compact GLC, offering tidy proportions and the versatility that comes with optional third-row seats. Three-row seating is not something you’re likely […]

Hot on the heels of its Chinese-market debut in Shanghai last month, General Motors has foisted a reborn Trailblazer on North America.
