We sat behind the wheel of the 2021 Kia K5 GT, which aims to prove that a midsize family sedan can be fun. A Turbo-4 and solid handling fulfill this mission and at the same time leave black skid marks when the front tires spin. Perhaps Kia all season tires were a bad choice.
What could perhaps have been one of the more ambitious amphibious vehicles of the early 2000s, the Hydrocar, has resurfaced. In mint condition with its 572 cubic inch Chevrolet V-8 box engine, it will be sold across the auction block at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas on June 19th.
Ford renewed the Splash trademark. Originally used on the Ranger pickup in the 1990s, it is unclear on which vehicle the nameplate could reappear. The upcoming Maverick is an option, but a new ranger is also expected to arrive soon. The blue oval has options.
