2015 Volkswagen Golf

The Oshkosh Defense L-ATV Is the Official Replacement for the Humvee

This is where billions of your tax dollars will soon go.

The Humvee is the quintessential military vehicle. Before becoming a passenger car for some strange reason, the AM General HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) was the ride of choice for America's troops in overseas conflicts. But it's getting old, so the government sought out a replacement. Now, we know what that replacement is - say hello to the Oshkosh Defense L-ATV.

The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum Gets a Premium Hi-Fi Sound System

Technology used to recreate acoustics of European concert halls.

The Ford Explorer has been around so long that it can actually use nostalgia to help revive sales now that gas is relatively cheap and people aren't ashamed to buy SUVs anymore. The Explorer weathered dismal sales in the post-recession 2000s and now, with its new Platinum Edition, the Explorer is being repositioned as a luxury SUV, thanks in part to its new Sony premium entertainment system.

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker 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. Sure, 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.

The 2016 Subaru BRZ Heads to Dealerships With a Cheaper Price Tag

It's not much, but the fact that the price dropped at all is great.

The Subaru BRZ has always been the slightly more accessible version of the Scion FR-S. The BRZ's suspension is tuned for less oversteer, and there are far more creature comforts and new pieces of technology in the Subie. Of course, that's always made it slightly more expensive than the FR-S, but thanks to a small price drop for the 2016 model year, it's still more expensive, just slightly less so.

2010 vs 2015: The Modern Twist on the Classic American Muscle Car - the Dodge Challenger

Dodge rolled into its second century bringing out the big guns.

What have the last five years done to our favorite rides? If you're in the market for a new vehicle, it might be prudent to take a look at some previous model years. We all know that cars depreciate as soon as they're driven off the lot, but how much do they depreciate after half-a-decade? Are there options you simply can't live without today, that weren't available five years ago?

GALLERY: The New Smart ForTwo Cabrio Is Three Cars In One, Only Not Really

Daimler-made micro car to feature unique "tri-top" technology.

Smart, makers of the ForTwo city car, those sawed-off-looking cars that, despite their incredible practicality for urbanites, are just plain funny looking, no matter how you slice it. With a few clever improvements to its cabrio design, however, it might be the best FourTwo yet.

The New Marketing: FCA Gets 2.5 Billion YouTube Views, Kind Of

Car makers can't rely on advertisement alone, must go online.

Do you remember the last time you watched a TV commercial? If you do, you're either a Hulu subscriber, one of the 200 million Americans who don't subscribe to cable TV, or you're over the age of 25. According to an article, "Youth as a whole are watching less TV - and the decline appears to be accelerating." the drop-off in viewing by the 18-24 demo isn't showing any signs of reversing."

The 2016 Lincoln MKX Puts Safety and Self-Driving First

Advanced features keep Lincoln drivers from hurting themselves.

Ford's luxury brand is trying to find its place in an ever-more crowded luxury market. As less-than-premium-priced luxury cars, Lincoln needs to find its niche. Perhaps taking a page from Volvo's book, the brand is choosing to concentrate on high-tech gadgetry and advanced safety systems. The new MKX is so advanced, it's practically self-driving.

Explore One Mile Under the Ocean in a Large, Transparent Bubble

Wicked Tech: C-Researcher 3 is the latest in submersible technology.

The ocean is the life source for our planet. Covering 70 percent of the Earth's surface, the vast interconnected global waters affect our weather, regulate temperature, and support organism life. It also serves as a source of transportation and sustenance for humans, yet though we rely on the ocean so heavily, we have barely dipped our toe into exploring this complex habitat.

Guess Who's Crossing Over Now? Jaguar Readies the F-Pace SUV

Because you're nobody if you don't sell a McSUV.

If you want to stay competitive, you have to give the people what they want. Someone at Jaguar HQ must have said words to that effect before decreeing that Jaguar should build a crossover. Or maybe they said something more like, "Hey, I know how we can make a whole lot more money; let's do exactly what everyone else is doing!"

It's Happening (Maybe): Ford Is in Talks to Bring the Ranger Back to the U.S.

And the mid-size pickup market heats up once again. Maybe.

At first, we believed that the mid-size truck segment wouldn't have any more new competitors than the GM twins, the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon. Toyota has answered with an all-new Tacoma, and Nissan ... well, they still sell the decade-old Frontier. Now, though, the segment might expand by one more, as The Detroit News reports that the Ford Ranger might return to the United States.

News Roundup: Mazda's Crash Safety, Hyundai's GT Concept, and the Trackhawk is Coming

Your auto news roundup for the week of 08/21 - 08/28.

Hyundai's bringing some wicked stuff to the Frankfurt Motor Show this year-namely, the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept, which will eventually makes its way to Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3. This also marks the first appearance of Hyundai's N sub-brand, which is going to be the marque's performance moniker. N stands for Namyang, which is the Korean city where Hyundai is headquartered - so, no, they're not ripping off BMW; there are only so many letters in the alphabet.
