The Top 5 Most Fuel Efficient Cars, Trucks and EVs of 2015

Does your vehicle run like the Energizer Bunny?

Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are looking more and more attractive these days thanks to falling gas prices. With that said, fuel efficiency is still a benchmark automakers seek to improve in their vehicles every year. We break down the most fuel efficient vehicles by cars, trucks, and EVs, thanks to a little help from the U.S. Department of Energy.

GALLERY: 11 Pictures of Old Land Rovers Doing What They Do Best

Dirty pictures mustn't always come with NSFW warnings.

With the recent slew of Land Rovers we've driven, and with even more new models coming our way this year, there's a lot of talk about how Land Rovers are so eminently capable right out of the box. For example, a Range Rover can dive into nearly three feet of water and not drown itself or soak your fine leather shoes, and it's been like that for decades. But, aside from attending media-drive events, how often do you actually see these cars doing that sort of activity?

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE vs. the Used-Car Market

Checking out a new car's competition from the used-car market.

It's no surprise that buyers often compare both new and used cars. For a given price point, the market for potential cars explodes once you start looking away from new cars alone. Yes, you might give up the warranty, but if you're looking for something unique, used cars provide a good value ... provided you pick the right one. Bang for Your Buck takes a look at five used cars you could get with the money you'd spend on the new car we've tested recently.

Bentley's New Line of Furniture is Exactly as Dull and Expensive as You'd Think

Wherein a sofa costs as much as an economy car.

Well, we didn't see this collaboration coming. It appears that Bentley has teamed up with a European luxury furniture maker (of course they exist, why wouldn't they exist?) to release a furniture collection. Inspired by both Bentley's love of plush interiors and, for some reason, traveling by train, the Bentley Home collection will set you back an unearthly sum of money for furniture that, when it comes down to brass tacks, is pretty dull.

Maryland Residents: The Chevrolet Spark EV Is Heading Your Way

The Little Car That Could finally heads to the East.

Since its inception, the all-electric Chevrolet Spark EV has been a West Coast affair, with sales taking place in just California and Oregon. There are many reasons for this, mostly pertaining to zero-emissions regulations and other conditions that make that location favorable for EV sales. Of course, other regions also pine for EVs, and the demand is now high enough to where Chevrolet is taking the Spark EV all the way across the country to Maryland.

A 100th Birthday Homage to JC Whitney from One of Its Many Customers

The online parts giant just turned 100 years old.

"Hop in," Adam said. "I have to get my hair cut for prom." Standing at the curb in front of my driveway, I peered up at the old, red Jeep Wrangler with its large black tires. I nervously climbed in. There were no doors and the top was gone. "Cool," I said, trying to project calmness.

Jaguar Land Rover's Bike Sense Should Keep Bikers Safe and Happy

Because nobody deserves to be doored. For the most part.

Chances are, if you live in a big city, you're used to fighting bicyclists and motorcyclists for space on the road. And your two-wheeled compatriots are often tricky to find, hiding out in blind spots and whizzing by you at speed. It creates an environment ripe for trouble. Thankfully, Jaguar Land Rover has developed a system that will hopefully cut down on accidents and increase safety for all parties. It's called Bike Sense, and it shouldn't require a whole bunch of new sensors to implement.

Recharge your iPhones and Other Devices With Gas-Powered Hand-Held Fuel Cell Charger

Now you can charge your e-cig while totally off the grid.

Fuel-cells are all the rage in the automotive world at the moment, thanks to Honda and Toyota, but while fuel cell technology is particularly ill-suited to powering cars, it can be quite handy in other ways. Case in point: the Kraftwerk. No, not the pioneering German electronic band, this Kraftwerk is a hand-held fuel-cell-powered recharging device ("Kraftwerk" is German for "power plant," and the Kraftwerk charger was developed in Germany).

Hydrophobic Metal Is Laser-Cut to Repel Water Like a Trampoline

Wicked Tech: Laser patterns make metal impervious to rust.

This has to be, hands-down, the coolest thing you you'll watch all week. Water droplets are literally bouncing up and down like they're on a trampoline once they hit a hydrophobic metal surface. It's not magic, it's physics. A research team at the University of Rochester led by Professor Chunlei Guo published an article in the Journal of Applied Physics this week outlining their development of a metal surface that acts as an ultra-efficient water repellent.

The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport Is More than Just a Facelifted LR2

Embarrassing mall crawlers, one foot of water at a time.

If you've seen a Land Rover LR2 within the last year or two, you may notice that the styling is a bit, how do we say it, old. The car has been on sale in the U.S. since 2007, making it a bit of a dinosaur, at least aesthetically speaking. That all changes with the re-introduction of a nameplate we haven't seen stateside in years. Yes, that's right; Disco Fever is once again taking hold, this time in the form of the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport.

News Roundup: Ford Focus RS, Lamborghini Huracán GT3, Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe

Your auto news roundup for the week of 01/16 - 01/23.

If so, lucky day, because Porsche has rolled out a special version of the 911 to commemorate the club's 60th anniversary, and it's only available to PCA members.

Five Episodes of Jay Leno's Garage, Featuring Some Cars You May Not Know About

Obscurity alone makes these cars pretty darn interesting.

While car folks might disagree on whether or not they liked Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, there's no disagreement when it comes to discussing Leno's fervent love of cars. The man just oozes passion on his YouTube series, Jay Leno's Garage. And, being the lucky bastard he is, Leno finds himself driving all sorts of interesting cars that fall on the obscure side of the spectrum. Since we love odd cars, as well, we figured we'd bring five of them to light in a list.

You Won't Believe What an Arizona Man Wants People to Pay Him to Do in the Back of His Tesla

Phoenix man enjoys being part of the "sharing" economy.

The Tesla Model S is a pretty amazing car. It's a beautifully designed, all-electric, $100,000 piece of automotive history. It's known for its speed, its efficiency, and its style, not its ability to sleep two comfortably. One Arizona man is looking to change that, for some reason. He's offering to let people sleep in the back of his Model S for the low, low price of $85 a night.
