So we got a 2017 Ford Mustang GT California Special

So we got a 2017 Ford Mustang GT California Special

The updated 2018 Ford Mustang is almost upon us, with a droopier front-end and a radical list of mechanical updates. That’s not to say the existing Mustang is to be scoffed at. While it may not have topped many categories in our exclusive muscle-car comparo, we contend that it is still a great daily-driver, as we found out when we drove the GT California Special earlier this year, both in coupe and convertible forms.

So we got a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

So we got a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

Once you have kids, the time to drive two-seater sports cars goes out the window for the most part, unless you can sneak out of the house at odd hours of the day to go for a solo run. So it wasn’t with much enthusiasm that we received the latest version of the C7 Corvette, which is this Grand Sport. Meant to fill the gap between the Stingray Z51 and the Z06 (or is it now the Z07? And is the ZR1 still around? We’ve lost track.), we did get time to drive it for a bit, and we have to say,

So we got a 2017 GMC Sierra Denali

The GMC Sierra 1500 has been around since 2014 in its current form, undergoing a minor facelift in 2016 after criticism that it looked too much like the old one. This here is the Denali version of the current Sierra, and it is aiming to be the most luxurious pickup truck you can buy.

So we got a 2017 Ford Escape Ecoboost

The Ford Escape doesn’t register on any shopping lists of crossover buyers around here. And truth be told, the mildly facelifted model that you see here probably won’t change that at first glance. But this updated model has a few tricks up its sleeve that surprised us. And in a world where even exotic cars are completely predictable, we definitely like surprises.

So we got a 2017 Land Rover Discovery

So we got a 2017 Land Rover Discovery

The new Land Rover Discovery is not a good-looking vehicle. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, remember that the current Toyota Land Cruiser, Nissan Patrol and even Range Rover were received with equal hate from the general public, only for them to become “dream” cars for those same people in less than a year, and they both currently dominate the sales charts. In all likelihood, the Discovery will pull off the same feat, once everyone gets used to it. We were just about starting to warm up to it when we had one for a few days.

So we bought a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT

So we bought a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT

Yep, we’ve bought yet another car, adding to our ever-expanding self-owned long-term fleet. We hyped it long enough on our Facebook page where we asked our fans to guess the car, and it was great fun watching the comments pour in. This here is a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT in a rare red colour, and in full-option trim — so fully-optioned, that you won’t find this specification at all dealers as it was originally custom-ordered.

So we got a 2017 Honda CR-V

So we got a 2017 Honda CR-V

We drove this new Honda CR-V just before heading out to Japan to drive, among other things, a Civic Type-R. While the two cars are miles apart, it is easy to forget that Honda has always been a clever engineering company, given that we don’t see the company’s most popular creations at showrooms here. However, the new CR-V actually has a lot of engineering poured into it, for the benefit of regular folks rather than just enthusiasts.
