FORD TO REINTRODUCE RANGER, BRONCO

The annual Detroit Auto Show is the center of attention for car-enthusiasts each year, with all of the major car companies introducing their new models to the world.

RAPTOR RETURNS

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for decades, due in large part to the truck’s inherent ruggedness and dependability. The F-150 is legendary for durability, from the most basic XL-model all the way up the high-end Platinum edition with all the bells and whistles. However, Ford cranked the truck knob up to 11 when it launched the beastly Ford Raptor SVT in 2010, offering a Baja-ready truck with a race-inspired suspension and burly 35-inch tires right off the showroom floor. When the Ford F-150 switched to an all-new, military-grade aluminum body in 2015, the Raptor model

HYUNDAI ELANTRA PACKED WITH EVEN MORE VALUE

The Hyundai Elantra is something of an automotive superstar when it comes to delivering value. After all, the Elanta has always come with an unprecedented level of standard features for the money, including a standard ten-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, the wizards at Hyundai are cranking the knob on the Value Meter all the way up to 11 with the introduction of the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition. “Oh my,” you are probably breathlessly saying to yourself right now, ever keen to the promise of more goodies for less money. “What could the Hyundai Value Edition possibly be bringing

HYUNDAI HOSTS SUN BOWL

Collegiate football is a competitive sport, and teams from across the nation battle throughout the autumn for the honor of being invited to a coveted bowl game, a final showdown between the most winning teams. In the lineup of multiple games played between Christmas and New Years, there are few as venerable and historic as El Paso’s Hyundai Sun Bowl, hosting its 81st game on Friday, December 30. The tradition of the Sun Bowl goes all the way back to 1935, when the El Paso All-Stars defeated the Texas Rangers 25-21, making this one of the second-oldest bowl games in

A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

There are certain holiday traditions that are wholly unique to New Mexico. A bowl of Christmas Eve posole, or a bundle of steaming tamales. Cinnamon-and-sugar encrusted Biscochitos and, of course, the timeless luminaria. Like much of our local culture, the tradition of placing luminarias on Christmas Eve goes back to Spain. First appearing around the 16th century, Spanish worshippers lit small bonfires along the roads and churchyards to guide people to Midnight Mass on the final night of Las Posadas, a festive celebration honoring the story of Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging in Bethlehem. New Mexico’s luminaria tradition began

PUTTING IT IN PARK

We’ve all done it before, and nobody likes to talk about it. You’re in a hurry or thinking of something else, and you jump out of the car, forgetting to put the automatic transmission in “park.” Sometimes it just means you can’t get your keys out of the ignition, but other times, the car starts to roll away. More than just an embarrassing moment, it can be a dangerous one, too. To ensure this can’t happen, Ford is introducing a “Return to Park” function as a standard feature in the 2017 Ford Fusion. “P” mode is engaged automatically if the

2017 HONDA CR-V: THE BEST GETS BETTER

To say that the Honda CR-V is a pretty popular SUV is like saying that green chile is a pretty popular dish in Southern New Mexico. The class-leading Honda CR-V sold about 340,000 copies last year, making it the top-selling small SUV in the nation. So when it came time to refresh the ubiquitous four-door hauler, Honda followed the successful strategy employed for the recently updated Civic by adding copious amounts of technology, sophistication, and interior space. For the first time ever, the new 2017 Honda CR-V is offering an optional engine choice. The base CR-V LX gets a standard

2017 SUPER DUTY: TRUCK OF THE YEAR

In the populous world of automotive media and recognitions, few hold as much gravitas as the coveted Truck of the Year award from Motor Trend magazine. Each year, the magazine’s editors compile a short list of new or substantially revised trucks to compare and spend days measuring them against the other. The editors of Motor Trend contend that they rarely know which competitor will win the hallowed award until the final numbers are all tallied up, but at this year’s competition, they already knew the outcome by the halfway point: the all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty. Among many winning attributes,
