2022 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum – Road Test

Nissan (and Infiniti) went through a period in the mid-2000’s where a huge chunk of their vehicles were… to say it nicely – ugly. Thankfully they’ve turned the corner and the entire line-up is fantastic looking, gorgeous even. The new for 2022 Pathfinder is not only a looker, but Nissan videos show that it’s also a capable towing and off-roading vehicle. To our eyes the Pathfinder has always been a great-looking SUV – even when the original one came out in 1986. It’s changed considerably since then – as have more peoples’ needs and viewpoint on SUV’s. We spend a week with the 5th generation of this iconic SUV – let’s see how it fairs in 2022…

2012 Ford Explorer XLT AWD – Road Test

It’s been quite a while since I last drove a Ford Explorer, and since it’s recently been redesigned from the ground up in 2011, I thought I was long overdue to climb behind the wheel again. I’ve always liked the Explorer, but the new duds make it look quite unique – in fact, I’m sure you could replace the Ford badge with a Range Rover badge and people wouldn’t blink an eye. Especially from the rear … it looks like the RR Evoque.

2012 Ford Edge Limited AWD – Road Test

It’s been a while since I last drove the Ford Edge, so since they’ve re-designed it I thought now would be the perfect time to get behind the wheel again. I’ve always liked the Edge, but its new duds make it look quite unique and quite attractive from the front. The rear hasn’t changed much unless you view them side by side – that’s the only way to really differentiate the improvements.

2007 Toyota Highlander 4WD Limited – 2007

The Toyota Highlander is more than just a plain-Jane unattractive SUV. However, it could never be called sexy or beautiful. In fact, you-d be hard-pressed to call it anything more than a wallflower. Like that girl at the school dance, she wasn’t particularly attractive, but she had a great personality once you got to know her. Likewise, I present to you: the 2006 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander is a midsize SUV and “combines the style, handling and comfort of a premium sedan with the space, functionality and driving confidence of a sport-utility vehicle” according to Toyota. There are times when a manufacturer would like you to believe one thing, while they deliver another. In the case of the Highlander, Toyota has hit the bulls-eye.
