Today we talk about Mopar’s in-car wireless charging pad and the price of the upcoming Dodge Dart. Next up, is an app from Lexus that will let you try their navigation before you buy the car. Then, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and their goal to put an end to all power-braking. We talk about the next generation Mustang, just like the rest of the internet today. Finally, we plan to say goodbye to the Chevrolet Avalanche.
Today we review the Jeep prototypes that are showing at the Easter Jeep Safari. Also, we decide that it is time for Jeep to just build a pickup from the factory. Next up, we talk about the JLTV or the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle and what engine it is going to have driving all four wheels. The we close out with all GM news. GM has been producing more technology press releases than a rabbit on hormone therapy and most have been interesting. Stay tuned for even more GM tech news on the site later tonight.
Today we talk about the NHTSA and their new distracted driving guidelines. Despite all of their recommendations the one thing that is and always will be more dangerous than navigation screens is texting while driving. Next up is the Hennessey twin-turbo Ford GT that set a record at the Texas Mile hitting 257.7 MPG. Then we cover the weekly Fisker Karma update. We talk about the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend and it looks like it is going to be a good season. In more racing news Dodge will be campaigning their new Dart in RallyCross. Finally, your yuck moment of the day…The Subaru XV.

This week we learned that going “off the cuff” is tougher than you might imagine. Kevin flubbed dates, predictions, and managed to chew on words that his three year old can pronounce with perfect annunciation. The good news is that the format continues to improve. Every day we learn a little more about camera angles and editing techniques. Also, this week we replaced Friday’s Afternoon Commute with a video review of the 2012 Hyundai Accent. After the break are all of the videos for the week. Continue Reading →
In our second full week of filming the afternoon commute, we fell into more of a rhythm. The audio issues appear to have been resolved and we’ve settled on a camera placement. Keep us posted on what you would be interested in seeing and hearing about in the automotive world. After the break are all of the videos from this week.
Every day we at Autosavant read an enormous amount of news about what is going on in the automotive world. Sadly, most of us do not have is the capacity to write about all of that news on a daily basis (our day jobs seem to get in the way). As a result, our Technical Director Kevin Gordon has started video blogging about the day’s happenings in a new segment named The Afternoon Commute. After the break is a bit more information, a link to today’s Afternoon Commute, along with a spoof trailer to the series. Continue Reading →
