Autoblog answers all your questions about the 2018 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape is right in the thick of the compact SUV segment, with rivals including the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The Escape is perfectly suited to SUV buyers who don't want to give up car-like driving manners. Handling is fun and sporty, something you don't often encounter in the sport-utility segment, no matter size or price point. The ride is firmer than some alternatives, however.

Personnel files also revealed in huge data breach

A massive data leak has revealed the personnel files of hundreds of employees at Jaguar Land Rover's factory in Solihull, England. The documents reveal details such as sick days used, disciplinary issues and — most notably — red lines indicating potential firings in the weeks or months ahead. In total, the personal records of more than 600 workers were released. JLR is scrambling to contain the crisis. The breach was first reported by the Huffington Post UK, with the automaker initia

Hyundai looks to rattle the Civic Si and VW GTI

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers. That's too bad, because it takes only a few minutes behind the wheel to realize the crossover and SUV crowd are missing out on a lot of drivin

‘We are flattening the management structure’

Tesla is facing a sudden loss of key leadership at a critical moment when new vehicles, like the Model 3 sedan and upcoming Model Y SUV, are desperately needed to help boost the electric automaker's bottom line. According to a report in Automotive News, Doug Field, Tesla's chief engineer, is taking a six-week break from the company to "recharge" and spend time with his family. While Field has technically not left Tesla — a point reinforced in this Bloomberg news update — the timing o

Cop shocks and a cop engine are only part of this on-duty Durango

Dodge is adding to its police car portfolio with the 2018 Durango Pursuit, a specially-prepped police version of the automaker's SUV. Available with an optional 360-horsepower Hemi engine, the Durango Pursuit comes with everything you'd expect in a truck built to protect and serve. We'll try to avoid too many Blues Brothers cop car references but, yes, this Dodge includes some serious "cop shocks" and that aforementioned "cop engine," among many other modifications.

This 1,035-horsepower muscle car is now the world's fastest Demon

The Dodge Demon doesn't strike us as a muscle car much in need of a performance makeover. After all, this 840-horsepower MoPar machine's voracious quest for straight-line speed means it trims weight by jettisoning everything from a front passenger seat and rear seat, to its stereo and all carpeting in the trunk. The folks at Hennessey apparently think that's not nearly extreme enough. So, the Texas-based tuning outfit has turned the Demon into a 1,035-horsepower beast that runs a quarter-mile in

The facts behind the delivery fee, and why it might not matter

Timing is everything so, when it comes to car buying, dealership document fees are like the late party-guest who suddenly arrives while you're saying final goodbyes and putting leftovers in the fridge. To put it mildly, they're an annoying but common part of most car transactions. For car buyers who don't expect them, however, they can seem like a blatant rip-off.

Aston Martin and Triton Submarines team to build luxury sub

Aston Martin and Triton Submarines have teamed to build probably the world's most stylish and luxurious way to dive beneath the waves. Called Project Neptune, this two-passenger mini submarine looks like something designed and developed by Q Branch for James Bond. Though to be fair, the evildoers at Spectre might also appreciate a submersible that works a little Aston flair into its design.

This is the type of traffic jam anyone could love

Sometimes it really pays to get to work on-time. That was the case Wednesday morning, when a Brinks truck showered commuters in Indianapolis with approximately $600,000 dollars in cash. The incident occurred when a rear door opened as the truck was traveling on Interstate 70. According to this report, bags and bundles of money, along with loose bills, came showering out of the truck before it could come a stop.

Jaguar celebrates the 50th anniversary of its iconic XJ sedan

Jaguar is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its elegant luxury sedan, the XJ, with a stylish and supercharged new model called the XJ50. This nod to eight generations of XJ comes in long-wheelbase format and is powered by either a 340-horsepower supercharged V6, or snarling 470-hp supercharged V8. While the V6 model is available with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, the more powerful V8 is offered only in rear-wheel drive form.

The window sticker's story, and why you should be glad we have it

Imagine walking into a car dealership blindfolded, not knowing for certain what exactly you were paying for when buying that shiny, brand-new vehicle on the showroom floor. Imagine not being able to see a list price for each individual vehicle option and add on, not knowing for sure how much the destination charge was, or even what the list price of the vehicle itself was. Instead, you'd have to trust the dealer's word on all of that. Sounds a little bit crazy, right?
