If you’re looking for a first motorcycle and love Indian’s design ethos, you might want to spend a year experiencing the physics of two wheels on a 100-horsepower Indian Scout, or the newly introduced 78-horsepower Scout Sixty, named for its slightly smaller 60 cubic inch engine.
Scout is 259 pounds lighter than the Indian Chief Vintage model, an obvious advantage throughout the learning curve. Only a wag like me would have the nerve…
In today's tech-dependent world, cars have become rolling computers packed with all kinds of features, from navigation to 4G LTE connectivity. Offerings from luxury carmakers, in particular, now include a mind-boggling array of technology to appeal to a new generation. All of these new features mean owners will need to learn how to use them, especially the infotainment system, which is becoming the norm. No longer does your center stack only adjust radio channels…
The U.S. sales race is on between the Jeep Cherokee and the
former front-running Jeep Wrangler. While the Wrangler
epitomizes much of what Jeep used to be -- its go-anywhere capability,
nearly-all-American design and engineering, and the style-and-form ties
to the original Army jeeps -- the Cherokee is more practical for most
people, more technologically advanced, and newer.
far, the people have chosen the Cherokee, helped by constraints on the
Wrangler's production. Those constraints will not ease for at least a
year, as the Cherokee is moved to a new plant (likely Sterling Heights
or Belvidere) and the Wrangler…
Sometimes, it may be easy to forget about giving your car the tender loving care it needs to stay healthy. But with the heavy snow, icy roads and cold weather that winter can bring, now is the time to make sure to care for your vehicle.
Cold weather makes pliable material stiffer and more brittle and can make fluids thicker. If you live an area with severe winter weather, you know how dangerous the roads can get and the unique problems winter weather can create for your car.
So, take a look through our list of top five winter car…
Speculation/analysis. Last week, Allpar was the first to show one of the Hurricane prototype engines. It is a turbocharged two-liter, according to various reports; scuttlebutt had the goal at 300 horsepower or so for an SRT version, and the mid-200s for a standard model.
Alfa Romeo recently announced its two-liter four would hit 276 horsepower, but other than taking full credit for its development, said nothing about its origins. If it were based on the 1.75 liter engine they already have, we would expect them to say it, so we suspect they are using some version of the…

To say Indian Motorcycle has had a tumultuous history would be a major
understatement. The brand was founded in 1901 -- arguably making it
America's first motorcycle company -- and it enjoyed a significant
amount of early success, growth, and technological breakthroughs. After
World War II took its toll, however, its spot as America's number one
bike manufacturer was snatched up by Harley Davidson, and production
eventually ceased in 1953. The nameplate was passed around by a variety
of short-lived owners for years, but was eventually put down for good in
2003. Or so we thought.
The holidays are stressful enough without having to worry about your vehicle making it over the river and through the woods in time for dinner at grandma’s house. The Car Care Council recommends that before hitting the road for the holidays, you take a little time to have your vehicle thoroughly inspected to make sure it is road ready.
“The last thing anyone wants during the holiday season is to break down miles from…
