The difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day

Memorial Day is this Monday, and while many are planning their annual cook-outs and children look forward to a day off school, those who have lost loved ones while serving our country think of this day as something much different.

Memorial Day is often confused with Veterans Day, and according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, here?s why: .

Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day for…

Marchionne: Next Wrangler won’t be all-aluminum

The next-generation Jeep Wrangler won't be all aluminum, according to FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne.

Marchionne spoke to reporters at the SAE Foundation's Annual Celebration last night. He was the guest of honor at the event where he received the group's 2015 Industry Leadership award.

According to a report in today?s Detroit News, Marchionne said that company tests showed the costs of an all-aluminum body outweighed the weight-saving benefits.

"Because of the difference in cost, not just the new material but the actual assembly process, I think we can do almost as well without doing it all-aluminum…

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel First Drive

Let's get one thing straight from the start: The Ram Rebel is not a Ford Raptor-fighter. That was the Ram Runner, and it's dead now. No, this is Ram's rebuttal to Ford's FX4 Off-Road package for the F-150, Chevrolet's Z71 Off-Road package for the Silverado, Toyota's TRD Pro package for the Tundra, and Nissan's Pro-4X package for the Titan. Set your expectations accordingly.

That established, let?s talk about what makes a Rebel. The Ram people say it's a reaction to customer behavior, as a lot of truck buyers immediately install a…

Does Engine Coolant Go Bad?

Yes, engine coolant does deteriorate over time, but unless something unusual occurs, you probably won't need to change the coolant in most late-model vehicles until 100,000 miles. Older vehicles probably require more frequent coolant replacement, so check your owner's manual to be sure.

Most manufacturers now use extended-life coolant with a recommended change interval of 100,000 miles. That varies based on maintenance schedules for each manufacturer and individual models. Some Subarus…

2016 Jeep Patriot Planned

Jeep will keep making the Patriot into the 2016 model year, despite the appearance of the new Jeep Renegade, according to reliable Allpar source "Mopar Man."

Some expected the Patriot to be dropped once the Renegade appeared, since the cars share a basic form and are roughly similar in size and price. However, relatively few Renegades have made it to the United States, and the plant where the Patriot, Compass, and Dodge Dart are all…

Changes for the 2016 Ram HD pickups

A reliable source oh2o provided a list of what will be changing for the 2016 model year in the Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickup trucks.

Production of the 2016 model year pickups begins on July 20, 2015, and will include the new Limited, with the same controversial grille and tailgate appearance as the Ram 1500 Limited (shown below). Available as a crew cab or mega cab only, it will have unique wheels (except on double-rear-wheel setups, or "duallies," which will carry over the old wheels). The interior is all-black and similar to that of Ram 1500 Laramie Limited; bumpers…

Driving Safely in School Zones

School Zones are supposed to keep kids safe as they arrive at and leave school, but the zones sometimes pose a risk for pedestrians and motorists alike. Each school year, nearly 54 million school-age children walk or bike to school or otherwise pass through the school zone after exiting a caregiver's car or the school bus. In those busy zones, they can be at risk of injury or death. Meanwhile, motorists (even those who?

What to Wear When You Ride - and Why

Just because you are free to ride your motorcycle or scooter in the U.S. with hardly enough clothing for a beach party does not mean it's a good idea. And just because riders in at least 30 states may legally ride without helmets, also does not make this recommended.

Gear comes styled for every kind of riding, at several price points, and designed more comfortably than ever. Aside from its obvious intent of protecting you in a crash, proper clothing and a helmet can actually reduce fatigue and improve your focus.

And whether you think it's too…

Chrysler compact still coming

The Chrysler compact car, normally referred to as the 100, is still on the way, according to both the company's strategic plan and insiders.

Some believe the forthcoming Chrysler  is closely linked to the new Fiat Linea replacement, which will be unveiled shortly. It seems likely that most of the work will be done by Fiat, which traditionally has more expertise in small cars, especially since Chrysler itself has its hands full with yet more revisions to its pickups, work on next-generation large cars, Dart upgrades, nine-speed fixes, the next-generation Compass, new minivans, possibly bringing over a Ram version…

New 2017 Chrysler minivan spy shots

The Windsor, Ontario plant that builds all Chrysler and Dodge minivans is currently down for a thorough refitting, which will clear out ancient equipment and presumably use all available space when the minivan line is complete: standard, plug-in hybrid, and crossover (some believe a large car will also be added, as the Volkswagen Touareg shared with the Volkswagen Phaeton).

In the meantime, Chrysler appears to still be running prototypes built in their Auburn Hills shop, anticipating the time when real pilots can run down the Windsor lines for a few months for testing before the all-important vans are made.

Chrysler…
