Volkswagen Corrado VR6 | The Brave Pill

Heather

It would be hard to top last week’s Touareg V10 TDI for automotive risk. So I haven’t even tried, although you’ll notice that this week’s Pill does keep it in the family. Yes, it’s a modified but well priced Volkswagen Corrado VR6. It’s definitely not perfect, but it’s cheap enough that […]

2022 Jeep Wrangler High Tide Stands Tall

Heather

Lately it’s all Ford Bronco this, Ford Bronco that. If it’s not the Raptor, it’s the Everglades. What about the Jeep Wrangler? Is there any news there, you ask? Why yes, there is. And while it’s perhaps not anything too major—no Rubicon 392—the new-for-2022 Wrangler High Tide does offer a […]

Typically, you’ll find a four-cylinder transverse turbo engine, some […]
