The 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty is one of the biggest and baddest trucks on the road. It’s been 18 years since Ford re-did the Super Duty and this truck doesn’t share any parts with the 2016 and older models. Our tester comes with a $71,000 price tag. While that is a heck of a lot of money, this is also a heck of a lot of truck. For more news and car reviews head to .

The Car Pro is behind the wheel of the four-door 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. Jeep is one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road, from it’s 7-bar grill and round headlights, to the rear where the spare tire is exposed…you know at a glance it is a Jeep Wrangler. This model has very comfortable leather seating, and like all Wranglers, everything inside is clean and well laid out. Unlike days past, you now get power windows and door locks, keyless entry, automatic headlights, tilt wheel with finger controls, and much more, all as standard equipment. Its 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine puts out 285-horses and has a great reputation for overall quality and long-term durability. Our tester is equipped with the 5-speed automatic transmission. We're getting right at 19 miles per gallon in mixed driving, which is OK considering this is one of the most capable off-road vehicles you can buy. The suggested retail price on this Sahara package is $45,045 nicely equipped. ============================================== For more straight talk & honest answers about everything automotive and to find out when the Car Pro Show airs in your area, visit ============================================== **Click Below to SUBSCRIBE for More Videos: ============================================== Facebook: Twitter: Pinterest; ============================================== For even MORE reviews visit:

This is the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali four-wheel drive Crew Cab. This truck had a complete re-do in 2014, then last year received a freshening. We're often asked the differences between this truck and the Chevy Silverado. The truth is, the only differences are the grill, headlights, and taillights. Plus, the GMC has a slightly more upscale interior. Underneath the outer sheet metal, the trucks are identical and have the same towing capacity. The Sierra comes in four trim levels: the base, the SLE, the SLT, and the top-of-the-line Denali like the one we are reviewing here. Under the hood, the base engine is the 5.3-liter V8, but my tester has the massive 6.2-liter V8 that has 420-horses and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The interior is upscale and very well done with high-quality leather and stitching throughout. The instrument cluster features a lot of gauges and has a driver info readout in the middle that you can change from the heated steering wheel. The Sierra Denali has a huge center console that features two 110-volt outlets and two 12-volt power outlets. On top of the console is a built-in phone charger, and inside the console are two USB ports and another 12-volt outlet. You operate the Bose stereo, navigation system, Apple Car Play, and Bluetooth from an 8” color touchscreen. It also houses the rearview camera, and when the truck is started, the interior becomes a Wi-Fi hotspot. There are many standard features on the Denali. Some of the major features include: automatic low-speed braking, forward collision alert, EZ lift and lower tailgate, assist steps in the rear bumper, LED lighting, and heated and cooled seats. Just two complaints with this truck…the exterior mirrors seem too small to me for a truck with a trailer-towing package. It also bugs me they put a 3:23 rear axle ratio in this truck. I’m sure it was to get better fuel economy, but this truck will only tow 9100 pounds where many of the competitors tow well over 11,000 pounds. To be fair, this truck with a 3:42 rear axle and the max trailer-towing package will tow 12,000 pounds with the 6.2-liter. Speaking of gas mileage, this 5500-pound pickup is rated at 15 in town and 20 on the highway. MSRP, as equipped, is $63,795 before discounts and rebates. That puts it in line with comparable Ford, Chevy, and Nissan pickups equipped the same.

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is one of the most capable 4X4 off-road SUVs you can buy. It's not just an amazing off-roader. It makes a great daily driver as well. Our tester has the 3.6-liter V6 and an 8-speed automatic. A lot of people will opt for the larger 5.7-liter Hemi, but honestly you don’t need it, the 295-horse six banger has plenty of get up and go. The exterior of the Trailhawk has some unique features like a blacked out grill and headlights, red Grand Cherokee emblems on the doors, unique 18” wheels, dual exhaust, a black anti-glare decal on the hood, and red front tow hooks. There are even silhouettes of a Jeep Wrangler in red stamped into the wheels. You’ll notice too, red badges that proclaim this Grand Cherokee as Trail Rated. To get that designation, a Jeep is put through rigorous testing off-road, it’s not just an emblem, it’s a badge of honor for Jeep owners. As you enter the cabin of this 5-passenger SUV, it is well laid out with Nappa leather and suede contoured front seats that are very comfortable and snugly hold you in place. The seats remind you this is a Trailhawk, with stitching in the back of the front seats. The gauges are bright and easy to see, and there is a comprehensive driver info readout between them that supplies the driver with all sorts of information. On the center console is a revised gear shifter and the heart of this Jeep, which is the Quadra Drive II 4-wheel drive system. You can choose from automatic, sand, snow, mud, or rock. You can also raise or lower the vehicle thanks to the Jeep air suspension system, shift into 4-wheel low for the roughest terrain, and a button for rock crawl mode. One amazing feature of this system is the Grand Cherokee can transfer power to any wheel when needed, and will send 100% of its power to one wheel if you get stuck. On a side note, if you get this Jeep stuck, you were probably somewhere you shouldn’t have been. There is an 8.4” color screen that houses the U-Connect system, which I always say is one of the best systems around. You operate the sound system, Bluetooth, navigation system, heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, voice activation, Siri Eyes Free, and you can activate the Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also go through multiple pages of apps, including something new called the off-road page, which I love. The Off-Road Pages display four key components: the Selec-Terrain driving modes; (drivetrain information like current steering angle, transfer-case position and rear differential lock) suspension information such as wheel articulation and air suspension height; and accessory gauges to give you coolant, transmission and oil temperatures, battery voltage and oil pressure readings. All this info is in real-time; you even get longitude and latitude readings and current altitude. This is a very cool feature offered on just a few Jeep models. Just under the touchscreen you can operate the park assist that will parallel and perpendicular park the Jeep. You can activate the lane assist system, turn off the annoying start/stop system, and choose drive modes of Eco or Sport, and turn off the traction control. The automatic air conditioning system is simple and the radio operates with large round knobs. All occupants will enjoy good legroom and headroom, and with the back seat down, you have 67.5 cubic-feet of cargo area. The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk comes loaded with a lot of standard features including steering wheel controls, paddle shifters, trailer towing package, keyless entry, backup camera, and power lift gate. My tester has the Luxury Group, which is primarily the panoramic sunroof, power tilt wheel, high beam self-leveling headlights, and LED fog lights and running lights. It also has the Active Safety Group, and you get adaptive cruise control, brake assist, collision warning, and lane keep assist, which will direct the Jeep back into the middle of a lane if you stray out. It also has Rock Rails underneath to protect your Grand Cherokee, and it has blind spot warning. It even comes with a real spare tire and wheel, a rarity these days. This Grand Cherokee drives very well, has a smooth ride on the freeway, is quiet inside, and as I mentioned, has amazing off-road capability. All those together are unusual in an SUV in this price range. Fuel economy is 18 city and 25 highway and super loaded like this one, MSRP is right at $50,000. I love the Jeep Wrangler, especially the 4 door Rubicon, but if I wanted a Jeep, this is the one I’d buy because it is to me a much more enjoyable all around vehicle, both on and off the road.

The all-new 2017 Mini Cooper Countryman is the largest Mini ever produced. This crossover SUV looks similar to the Mini Cooper Clubman, but with this new Countryman, it is 8” longer, 4.7” taller, slightly wider, and offers 13% more cargo room in the back. Our review vehicle has the 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers that deliver 134-horses. It is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, but there is a six-speed manual available as well. If you move up to the S model, there is a 2-liter 4- cylinder available that puts out 189-horses, and there will be a hybrid option later in the year. My review vehicle is the ALL4, which is the Mini version of all-wheel drive, and gives this new Countryman a much more substantial ride and drive. This Mini shares a chassis with the BMW X1, so it is a true crossover. As cool as Minis are on the outside, it is the interior that true Mini enthusiasts love. As you sit behind the steering wheel, you notice everything is round, from the speedometer, to the huge touchscreen, right down to the air conditioning controls. Another cool touch Mini has used for years is the use of toggle switches below the climate controls, including one in the middle to start the car. To the left of the ignition are switches to turn off the parking sensors and start/stop system. To the right, you can turn off the traction control, and turn on the heads-up display. The heads-up display is unlike any I’ve ever seen. A plastic screen pops up from the dash to display your speed or give you directions from the navigation system. The seats are leather and quite comfortable. Everything is within easy reach, including the knob in the center console that operates everything on the massive round screen, or it can also be used as a touchscreen. You can go through the navigation screen, My Mini screen, Mini Connect, notifications, communication screen, and the media and radio screens. Surrounding the 8.8” round screen is a band of light that changes colors. Around the automatic transmission shifter, you can change drive modes from Sport, to Mid, to Green to maximize your fuel economy. The new Countryman has a lot of headroom and legroom. In fact, you can put five adults in this crossover and everyone will be comfortable. The back seat folds down in a 40/20/40 configuration for added cargo room. The Countryman comes with a lot of standard features including a panoramic sunroof, rearview camera, keyless entry, heated seats, and ambient lighting. This particular Mini has several options, including the leather seats, automatic transmission, 18” sport wheels, and the $2250 technology package which gets you the large touchscreen, real-time traffic, the heads-up display, and a wireless cell phone charger. The Countryman drives very well, has a smooth ride, interior noise is practically non-existent, and you get a real BMW feel in the handling. Fuel economy is rated at 23 in town and 30 on the highway, and I am actually doing better than that. Mini also pays for all scheduled maintenance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. Even completely loaded like my all-wheel drive review vehicle is, MSRP is $36,750. Whether you consider the Mini Cooper Countryman to be cool or quirky, it is a ton of fun to drive. ============================================== For straight talk & honest answers about everything automotive and to find out when the Car Pro Show airs in your area, visit ============================================== **Click Below to SUBSCRIBE for More Videos: ============================================== Facebook: Twitter:
