2012 Chevrolet Suburban (Chevy) Pictures/Photos Gallery - The Car

R&T Overview:

The 77-year-old Suburban has developed multiple personalities in its lifetime. One is a massive, luxurious station wagon, historically favored by Texans. Optional equipment includes power-operated running boards and a body that's refined with no gaps between bumper panels and sheet metal. The next personality is a butch off-roader, with a locking rear differential, big tow hooks in the front and a front skid plate. The base Suburban comes standard with a 320-bhp 5.3-liter V-8 and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine has an iron-block in rear-drive models, while the 4-wheel-drive models get an aluminum version of the V-8. The heavier-duty 2500 model gets a larger 352-bhp 6.0-liter V-8, plus a more robust frame and suspension.

2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe New BMW 6 Series Sedan Pictures

R&T Overview:

The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe joins a growing list of luxury sedans wearing coupe-like bodies. While it’s slightly late to the party, this BMW is dressed to impress and could be the best looking one of the bunch. There is room for two adults in back, along with a vestigial seat in the middle – BMW refers to this as 4+1 seating. Power comes from either a 315-bhp single turbo inline-6, found in the 640i, or a 400-bhp twin-turbo V-8 used in the range-topping 650i. Both engines come with an excellent 8-speed automatic transmission, though it’s only the 650i that offers optional all-wheel-drive. BMW’s Driving Dynamics Control allows the driver to choose from various performance settings tuned for comfort, sport, or economy – our driving tastes lean towards the two available sport modes. Other vehicles in the BMW range might offer more practicality or driving excitement, but the Gran Coupe’s undeniable appeal rests heavily on the allure of its sleek exterior.

2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Pictures/Photos Gallery - MotorAuthority

R&T Overview:

Like some cosmic collision of SUV and pickup, the Explorer Sport Trac combines a refined 4-door cabin with a functional, if short, cargo bed. Trailer Sway Control is a noteworthy standard addition for 2010, and this year’s optional navigation system is of a much-improved generation, but the basic choices of rear- or (active) 4-wheel drive, V-6 or V-8, are unchanged. Fuel economy ratings between the two engines are virtually identical, so we’d opt for the markedly smoother and stronger V-8 with its higher towing capacity and 6-speed automatic (the V-6 gets a 5-speed). If all this sounds good, act quickly, as Sport Trac production will reportedly cease when the Explorer moves from body-on-frame to unit-body construction for 2011.

R&T Overview:

Garish, or just livin' large? You make the call with the QX56. But there's no denying the space (seats up to eight) or functionality (tows up to 8500 lb.) of this massive, somewhat porcine vehicle. Power is provided by a direct-injected 5.6-liter 400-bhp V-8 mated to a 7-speed automatic, and a choice of 2wd or 4wd. But that's one of few choices you'll make, as there's just one lavishly appointed trim level, with a navigation system and 13-speaker Bose audio. We'd opt for the dual-monitor Theater Package to keep the kids entertained, which features an upgraded remote control and interface for 2013. Also, Moving Object Detection is added to the standard Around View Monitor and auto-dimming exterior mirrors are standard.

R&T Overview:

The Lancer is Mitsubishi's answer to the compact segment, and with numerous trim levels, there's sure to be one that interests you. Starting from the bottom, the DE model returns unchanged, but the ES features new interior fabrics and 16-in. wheel covers. The SE sedan will come equipped with all-wheel drive and the race-proven All-Wheel-Control system. Top-level GTS models get a name change; they'll now be called GT, and they are fitted with Ralliart front fascia, new 18-in. alloy wheels and interior fabrics, soft-touch door trim and instrument panel trim. The Evo GSR, Mitsubishi's turbocharged all-wheel-drive top-level sports sedan, gets an upshift light in the instrument panel, while the MR will let you know when you're driving economically with an Eco light.
