My seating position in said vehicle put the top of…
A couple of years ago, Apple announced its intention to dominate dashboardsvia the CarPlay infotainment system. To most observers, CarPlay seemed like an interesting move but not much of a stretch for Apple. After all, plenty of drivers already used their iPhones for music and navigation, so why not bake those features directly into cars?
Back in February, however, rumors began circulating that Apple had bigger plans for the auto world -- plans that involved building its own autonomous cars. Soon afterward, we heard reports of a secret research lab and claims that Apple was poaching experienced battery designers. The company…
Ever wanted a Jeep Grand Cherokee with three rows of seats and room for seven people? Is the extent of your off-road adventuring limited to farm roads, campground trails, and blizzards? Well then, I have good news!
The Dodge Durango is just the SUV you’ve been wanting. It just doesn’t have a Jeep badge on it.
Say what now?
Yep, under the sheet-metal, the 2015 Dodge Durango shares its heart and soul with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Durango sits on a wheelbase stretched five inches, is about a foot longer, and rides half an inch closer to…
The 2015 Chrysler 300 has been named one of KBB.com’s ten most comfortable cars under $30,000. The editors wrote, “Chrysler’s big and bold full-size sedan recalls the glamour and ease of yesteryear in a car that offers all of today’s modern amenities,”

We read about "hacks" every day. All industries are potential targets of a hacker and the automotive industry has been no exception.
Well-known hackers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek recently teamed-up with a WIRED reporter to publish a story that you may have read about or seen on the news. The story highlights how Miller and Valasek hacked into Miller's 2014 Jeep Cherokee and remotely controlled some functions.

The 707-horsepower Hellcat engine, a supercharged 6.2 liter Hemi V8, has
rewarded Dodge with much higher sales than expected, along with a great
deal of publicity in both magazines and social
The engine, carefully set up so that it can be
run "all day" at the track on hot summer days -- unlike at least one
competitive Camaro -- seems to be a real winner, but it's available only
in two cars, the closely related Challenger and Charger. In the

all automatic, but that automatic responds…
