Under the Hood: 2017 Jeep Cherokee

For all you zoom-zoom fanatics out there, Mazda has released its new 2017 CX-5 at a base MSRP of $24,045.

2017 Subaru Outback: Blazing a Dusty Trail

Since its inception in 1995 as a trim level for the iconic Subaru Legacy Wagon, the Subaru Outback – now a distinct model – has defied categorization.

The Jeep brand is part of American history, its name forged during World War II as the method of transport for so many U.S. soldiers. In the years since, Jeep grew into an automotive brand synonymous with both the American spirit and adventure. Although Jeep itself is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, the Patriot debuted only recently in 2007 – and the model has yet to see a redesign. Lauded as a budget-friendly SUV for drivers who seek both four-wheeling adventures and local commutes, the Patriot has long been a popular choice for new drivers and first-time car owners.
