Winter Storm Stella, microwave cameras, and St. Patrick dominated the news this week, but we’re more interested in the 2017 model year and which new cars shoppers want to see themselves driving. We’ve published 37 Test Drive Reviews of 2017 vehicles so far, and we’re going to take a look at those vehicles that have garnered the most inquiries from CarGurus shoppers. We haven’t spent enough time with a bunch of big sellers to review them yet, so we suspect our end-of-year list will look different, but we want to see which 2017s have already started generating interest. If you were buying a new car this year, do you know which 2017 you’d want to test drive first? Continue reading >>>
Should Ford Worry? Camaro Outsells Mustang
It seems there’s always something new to say about the Camaro and Mustang, even though their duel has been going strong since the 1960s.
There have been few breaks in the rivalry over the decades, and now it may be more intense than ever.
The newest Camaro and Mustang are arguably the best these cars have ever been. Both vehicles continue to rocket out of dealer doors as they grow faster, stronger, and more nimble with every passing model year.
The Mustang has outsold the Camaro for nearly two years, but a brand new Camaro and an aging Mustang have swapped positions for the first time in 22 months.
Can the Camaro hold onto the sales crown?
This Summer’s 10 Coolest New Convertibles
It’s that time of year again. The sun’s beginning to shine just a little too much, and the weather’s transitioning from pleasant and refreshing to downright oppressive. And while some people will turn to more traditional methods of respite—air conditioning is understandably a very popular option, especially in a car—we believe a convertible may be the best cure for the summer heat. We have said it time and time again: that classic feeling of cruising with the top down will never get old. In fact, it seems to get better with time. If you aren’t currently a convertible owner, there are plenty of options out there with a wide range of styles and price tags.
Ford Mustang: The Most Popular Sports Car in Germany
The best way to validate the existence of the Ford Mustang is to offer it for sale in a land where it shouldn’t be popular.
The Mustang, of course, has been a hot seller for as long as it’s been on the market in the United States. In the past, however, foreign markets have seen it as an outdated and mechanically inferior excuse for a sports car. It’s a car that was built for straight-line acceleration and paled in comparison to true sports cars, most of which hailed from Germany.
Now, though, the car has a true independent rear suspension and can hold its own against any other sports car, no matter where it’s from.
Ford felt like it had something special with the latest Mustang and decided to roll it out in the country famous for producing Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. Surely, if it could sell there, it could sell anywhere in the world.
The Germans, though, would have a superiority complex and shun the Mustang, right?
Not so much.
Staying Power: 2015s with Shelf Life
To most people, spring means longer days, sunny skies, and flowers in bloom. For us, however, spring also means great deals on outgoing model-year vehicles. While some cars, like the Honda Civic and Mitsubishi Outlander, received enormous changes between the 2015 and 2016 model years, others enjoyed more modest enhancements or were complete holdovers from the year before. It’s these cars — the unchanged models — that we want to find.
