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.

Bang for Your Buck: 2016 Audi TT 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.

A New Google Patent Will Help Drivers Avoid Life's Greatest Annoyance: Potholes

Wherein teamwork will save us all from trips to the mechanic.

Automakers and tech companies file a lot of patents. Most technologies never make it off that piece of paper submitted to the government, but companies would rather be safe and patent their ideas, lest a competitor come out of the woodwork and steal said idea. One of Google's latest patents, though, is a radically simple bit of tech that could save drivers everywhere from one of the most annoying on-road occurrences - potholes.

Recall Roundup: GM Headlights, Chevrolet Airbags, and Subaru Fluid Leaks

Let's see what's new in automotive recalls this week.

Chevrolet has issued a recall for variants of the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala sedan that are equipped with heated and ventilated front seats. According to the automaker, the Automatic Occupant Sensing system, which determines whether or not to activate the front-passenger airbag, might not turn off the airbag if a child seat is placed up front. If an accident occurs, the child might be injured by said airbag. Resetting the ECU and zeroing the seat's sensor will fix the problem.

Oil Is Under $40 a Barrel, Why Are Gas Prices Still High?

Conglomerates claim production issues, and why would they lie?

Remember last year when gas was cheap (at or below $3 a gallon), and we learned about a huge glut in oil supply that might even keep oil prices low for quite a long time. Then winter turned into spring and prices at our nation's pumps began inching back up, just in time for summer, the season of high gas prices.

The All-New 2016 Nissan Maxima Gets Dolled Up for Safety Car Duty

Say hello to the latest official safety car of VIR.

Safety cars are vital components of every motorsports race. In the even that something happens on the track, it's the job of the safety car to head out to the track, round up all the drivers, and keep them behind said safety car until the track is again safe to race on. Without them, there'd be chaos. Some race series have dedicated safety cars, and some tracks have their own, as well. This 2016 Nissan Maxima fits into the latter category.

Tesla Partners with Airbnb to Make Road Trips Easier for Owners of the Model S

Your next Airbnb host might be able to charge your EV.

A new partnership between Tesla Motors and Airbnb was announced which will benefit owners of the all-electric Model S as they travel around the country. Automaker Tesla Motors will invest millions of dollars into its growing network of nearly 500 charging stations, soon-to-include homes of Airbnb hosts across the country.

Would You Buy an Electric Motorcycle? How About an Electric Harley?

Electric bikes face a familiar challenge: range anxiety.

The idea of a silent motorcycle seems a bit odd, to say the least. The open-throated banshee howl of a Touring S is endemic to the experience of riding breathing is to not dying. The idea of a silent Harley-Davidson motorcycle is as what-the-eff crazy as a Porsche SUV, but welcome to the world as it is today.
