  • 60 Second Car Review: 2014 Buick Regal GS AWD

    I know that many of say you’ll ever be able to take Buick as seriously as BMW. But it’s worth noting that Buick is no longer building; nowadays, Buicks—and the Regal GS in particular—are tuned much more like Audis than the floaty lux-o-barges of our youth.

  • 60 Second Car Reviews: 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander GT - Ehhhh, Not So Much

    Yes, Mitsubishi still builds cars. Haven’t noticed? Perhaps that’s because, aside from the mighty EVO, Mitsu’s products have been rather unremarkable in recent years. But alas, the massive Japan-based automobile and electronics manufacturer is still making cars, and the redesigned Outlander GT crossover is the freshest of the lot. So while I’m not so fond of its “Marty the Martian” face or its porky body, I decided to give it a chance to win me over with its spacious cabin, bevy of new safety and convenience features and supposed quality improvements.

  • 60-Second Car Reviews: 2014 Kia Cadenza

    Like a drag queen throwing a spiral, Kia almost universally surprises its audience. Especially when the Kia in question is one of its high-zoot models like the Cadenza, the next-rung-up model above the popular Optima sedan. The Cadenza’s design is decidedly elegant, with LED lights front and rear and, on Limited models, gleaming multi-spoke 19-inch wheels. My tester was rendered in a delicious brown metallic paint that would garner plenty of compliments on a Bentley, let alone a Kia. They could have sweated certain details a little more, like adding grippy material inside the cupholders and making both front seats heated and cooled, not just the driver’s seat.

  • Gay Car Geek: 2014 Jeep Cherokee — Have it Your Way

    We gays love our Jeeps. Whether it be a classy Grand Cherokee or a door-less, ragtop Wrangler, there’s something masculine and cool and eminently Gay-chic about owning a Jeep. That said, there’s a lot of space between those two vehicles, which Jeep is filling with its new Cherokee compact crossover.

  • Gay Car Geek: 2015 Chrysler 200 Has Pretty Face and Good Body

    I’m a sucker for a pretty face. And with its clean grille and Audi A5-like LED running lights, the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200’s face definitely qualifies as pretty. The 200 has a good body and great ass, too, if I may go there.

  • Gay Car Geek: 2015 Ford Fusion Energi — A Fusion of Gas and Electric Power in a Dapper Package

    I’m asked all the time about hybrids, and frankly, I find them hard to love (especially the Prius). Plug-ins, on the other hand, including the Chevy Volt and this car, the Ford Fusion Energi, actually work for me. Why? Because you can drive them around as electric cars for most of the day (up to 24 miles in the case of the Fusion Energi), and when the juice runs out, you continue on your merry way sipping gas. Range anxiety…what’s that? Seriously, plug-ins are the best of both worlds.
