    Auto Review: TAWA Auto Round Up Recap #1
    Every Spring I get the opportunity to test drive a slew of new cars, CUVs, SUVs, and more at the Texas Auto Writers Association Auto Round Up. Think of it as Coachella for vehicles. Manufacturers bring some of the newest rides as TAWA members buckle up for two days of tire kicking and pedal pushing. This year's event was held in Decatur, Texas, at Eagle Canyon Raceway which meant we would get the chance to open up a few of these hot rods while also playing around on streets and highways. Over the next few weeks I will be breaking down my thoughts on these vehicles to give listeners ideas of what to look for when thinking about your next purchase.

    Auto Review: 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison
    Mid-size trucks are my jam as I find them easier to drive and park than full-size monsters. Throw in some off-road capabilities and we have a match made in heaven. Chevy got together with AEV for a collab to produce the Bison version of its popular Colorado ZR2 truck and the result is a winner (other than one thing) Listen to my review as heard on "The High-Tech Texan Show" on KPRC 950AM (Houston) and iHeartRadio (worldwide). --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/garfield/support

    Auto Review: 2024 Ram 1500 Limited
    Full-size pickup truck are the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. so it is no surprise I test drive a lot of trucks, especially because I live in Texas "truck country." Ram has most always delivered capable monsters with big engines, lots of towing capacity, and comfy interiors. The 1500 Limited edition follows the script by providing all of that.

    Auto Review: 2024 Kia EV9 Land
    The EV9 has been near the top of my EV list since the first time I tested the original version a few years ago. Several iterations since, Kia has launched 4 new versions of the 3-row SUV: Light, Wind, Land, GT-Line. The Land has a lot of the amenities listed as standard and packs the same 379 hp as the top-of-the-heap GT-Line.

    Auto Review: 2024 Yukon Denali Ultimate
    A lot of superlatives here on the latest GMC Yukon with "Denali" and "Ultimate" as upgrades. There's really not much to add on this glorious beast of a vehicle that can fit up to 8 people.

    Auto Review: 2024 Cadillac XT4 Sport
    When you think of Cadillac you may associate the brand with luxury, elegance, and price. You are correct on two of those, at least with the XT4. This is the lowest-priced Caddy in the lineup and the compact CUV is packed with nice features including a futurist 33" display capable of 9K viewing.

    Auto Review: 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE
    Mercedes once again partners with AMG but this time they didn't perk up the engine, per se. This is due to the EQE being an all-electric vehicle and there is no gas-powered engine to play with. They did find a way to tweak with the motor to give it super speedy acceleration and creature comforts of a luxury vehicle. But the price may cause you to hit the brakes.

    You want to drive a BIG BOY truck? I mean a massive truck that can haul a small home? Oh, make sure it's luxurious, too. Listen to my review of the GMC Sierra 2500 ATX. Made for comfort. Full of luxury. Ready to off-road.

    Auto Review: 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee
    Loud and proud. That's how I can describe my week in the Dodge Charger Super Bee Special Edition. 475hp and your neighbors will definitely know when you start it each morning. Dodge made only 1,000 of these models to celebrate (or rather mourn) the final year of the gas engine version as it will electrify its future productions.

    Auto Review: 2024 Cadillac Escalade Premium
    Easily one of the largest vehicles on the road, the Cadillac Escalade is a monster of an SUV yet rides smooth as silk thanks to its magnetic ride control and suspension. That's just the start to describe this beast with more comfort than my home and certainly more screens. It isn't cheap but if you have the means it is tough to find a bigger and better truck.

    Auto Review: 2023 Jeep Compass Altitude
    Jeep is always a solid brand. My first SUV was a Grand Cherokee and I had a great experience. The Compass is a smaller SUV and good vehicle for those looking for a roomy, drivable Jeep.

    Auto Review: Mazda CX90 Premium Plus
    I'm still glowing over Mazda's largest vehicle in the U.S. since I first drove it in early 2023. The new Premium Plus version of the CX90 indeed makes it premium with even more creature comforts throughout. Meet the latest flagship RX from Lexus. This CUV is comfy and filled with almost every upgrade possible. The F Sport badge gives it a sexy, edgy look that turned heads around the city during my weeklong test drive.

    Auto Review: 2023 RAM 1500 Limited Elite Crew Cab
    Is there a better way to end 2023 than by test driving a pickup truck? The RAM 1500 Limited Elite helped me ring in the new year by riding high and in comfort. RAM continues to produce a powerful beast (this one can tow up to 12,750 lbs) while still looking stylish and providing creature comforts like quilted leather seats, a jeweled rotary shifter, and the tops-in-class Uconnect 5 infotainment system.

    Auto Review: Lexus LX600 F
    This Lexus is a beast. The largest vehicle in their fleet and it doesn't disappoint if you need room, comfort, and an easy drive. The LX600 F has some sporty features but if you want 3 rows in a SUV that makes a statement, this is a strong option. Meet the latest flagship RX from Lexus.
