Happy Thanksgiving, fellow CarGurus!
As you enjoy this day of watching football, eating sweet potatoes and carving turkey (or tofurkey if you’re like me), I want you to keep something in mind when you take turns going around the table to express your thanks.
Yes, it’s important to give thanks to family and to express gratitude for the food that fills your plate. But don’t forget to take a few moments and thank the auto gods for the abundance of speed, luxury and performance they’ve bestowed upon this Earth.
Here are some cars I’ll mention today in my annual “giving of the thanks.” What will yours be?
I’m thankful for:
Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
The Challenger Hellcat gets all the attention, but the 4-door Charger also has the 707-hp 6.2-liter V8. Insane fun for the whole family.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
This car made the Corvette relevant and brought the U.S. supercar raging onto the international scene.
Pickups aren’t just utilitarian workhorses anymore, and the F-150 is the pinnacle of the new breed of all-American truck.
Thanksgiving, love it or hate it, is also about finding bargains. There is no greater value on the market today than the Phaeton, which is basically a Bentley wearing a VW costume.
This is the most beautiful car available today. It’s not practical or economical, but its sound is pure magic. And that 5.0-liter supercharged V8 is just… Wow.
What cars make you thankful? Happy Thanksgiving!
