The 2016 Honda Pilot: Finally, a Car for the Grown-Up Grungesters

In a new Jason-Reitman-directed ad, Honda says it's hip to be square.

The 2016 Honda Pilot is a big deal for Honda. It's far from the most exciting car on the road, but then Honda isn't really in the business of making exciting cars, at least not since they killed off the S2000. The Pilot is Honda's SUV, or crossover, if you want to avoid obsolete terminology, and as such looks to be the Japanese brand's best chance of getting in on the crossover craze. So for its newest (third) generation, Honda is embarking on an ad blitz.

Chevrolet Has Devised a Deceptively Simple New Way to Keep Your Phone Cool

Efficient? Not really. Better for your phone? Absolutely.

Wireless charging is becoming a popular addition to both cell phones and the cars that occasionally charge them. But it's not a perfect science; not yet, at least. Wireless charging isn't terribly efficient, and one byproduct of it is heat - a fair bit of it. Sure, your phone can withstand a few-degree temperature jump during charging, but excess heat can do anything from degrade battery performance to shut the phone completely off. Chevrolet has come up with a trick little workaround.

5 Ways to Protect Your Car From Blistering Heat this Summer

Tips on ways to keep your car cool and running this summer

Auto neglect comes in many forms. There are certain aspects of human error that can be avoided, if the human is mindful of upkeep of what is under the hood. This also includes considering things us earthlings cannot control - like the summer heat. It doesn't matter if you're in Barstow, California or Rhinelander, Wisconsin during August's swelter. Extreme heat will exacerbate whatever problems lie under the hood.

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Chevrolet SS 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.

This Company Will Replace Your Supercar's Body Panels with Carbon Fiber Copies

And its name sounds exactly as stuffy as you'd think.

If you own a high-end performance car like a Bugatti Veyron or a LaFerrari, you're already holding onto one of the rarest, most beautiful cars ever built. Of course, there's always somebody out there who wants something better, or at least different from the rest. Now, there's one company that will replace all your car's body panels with carbon fiber ones, because apparently stock body panels aren't enough.

This is as close as you'll get to this limited-to-seven rarity.

What do a British car manufacturer, a Swiss watchmaker, and an aerobatics team have in common? Who knows?

It Begins: A Volkswagen Robot-Installer Was Killed by the Robot He Was Installing

It was probably an accident, but why hasn't the robot been questioned?

It's being reported as an accident, and indeed it may have been one, but anytime a human life is lost at the hands, or appendages, of a robot, we have to consider the possibility that the very thing some of the world's most learned people have warned us about may be actually happening.

Once Again, a Toyota Is More American than Any Ford, Chevy, or Chrysler

The Toyota Camry just topped the 2015 American Made Index winners list

Patriotism is often measured by an American's pride in knowing their automobile is made in the United States. Just look at how many Ford and Chevrolet pick-up trucks still dominate the nation's heartland, or cruise around the state of Michigan and count the "Buy American" or "Support American Jobs" stickers affixed to people's bumpers. Then again, recent news might just knock a few patriots for a loop.

Refreshes include a new 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6.

2016's going to be a big year for a good number of automakers, and Land Rover is one of them.

News Roundup: Jaguar Teases the F-Pace, EPA Rates the Mirai, Subaru Goes Hyper Blue

Your auto news roundup for the week of 06/26 - 07/03.

You know how many Arrested Development jokes can come out of this story? Either way, Subaru is rolling out a limited-edition Hyper Blue paint job for 2016 BRZ and 2016 WRX STI models to correspond with a limited-edition trim for each car. Along with the Hyper Blue paint you see below, you'll get Hyper Blue interior trimmings and black wheels and badges.
