2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 4WD

Big looks good when you’re Bill Gates eyeing his double-decker yacht sitting in the bay, but maybe not so much when you’re handed a blind-date dinner bill that could be confused for a phone number. Chevrolet’s time-honored Tahoe falls on both the good and the bad sides of bigness. On one hand, it’s a comfortably appointed people hauler that features a full array of safety tech and entertainment treats. On the other hand, it’s an expensive-to-buy, expensive-to-operate giant with a marginally useful third row, hobbled by its pickup-truck origins.

While the Tahoe is based on the Chevrolet Silverado’s body-on-frame design, this SUV benefits from a smoother riding five-link, coil-spring rear suspension in place of the pickup’s leaf springs. The Tahoe also shares that truck’s 5.3-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission. This aluminum small-block is equipped with direct fuel injection, variable valve timing, and cylinder

UPDATE 3/21/19: Cadillac has released pricing for the XT6. Click here for full information.

Calling crossovers and other tall, family-oriented vehicles boring is now a trope. Of course boxy wagons designed to ease the schlepping of children, stuff, or some combination of both through Americans’ daily lives aren’t going to stoke embers in car enthusiasts’ loins the way, say, Cadillac’s 640-hp CTS-V sports sedan might. So, we’re not going to fault Cadillac’s all-new three-row XT6 for being bland-even if the only splash it makes is when the first customer car encounters a puddle. Instead, we’ll call it out for

2017 Nissan Armada

When Nissan created the original Nissan Armada, its first full-size sport-utility vehicle, it did so in the traditional way, using the platform of its full-size pickup. That pickup, the Titan, had been introduced in 2003, and Nissan’s big ute, the Pathfinder Armada, arrived that same year, as a 2004 model. The Pathfinder label was supposed to leverage the name recognition of the brand’s popular mid-size SUV, but eventually it was jettisoned and the vehicle became simply the Armada.

Following the script written by Ford with the Lincoln Navigator and General Motors with the Cadillac Escalade, a luxury-brand version, the Infiniti QX56, soon followed. Dolled up with extra chrome and leather, it managed to be even gaudier than the Armada—an SUV as imagined by the Toll Brothers. In the McMansion era, that aesthetic was hardly out of step, but sales never came close to those

Solaiman Nuri, 41, and his 9-year-old daughter Hadees were killed April 7, 2012, as they rode their bikes on the sidewalk eastbound along Treat Boulevard near Oak Grove Road. Another daughter, 12-year-old Hannah, suffered minor injuries.

What mob boss killer said after he gunned down the head of the Gambino crime family outside his home

The man accused of killing Gambino crime boss Francesco Cali outside of his Staten Island home allegedly said he knew his own life was in danger the second he pulled the trigger, a court heard on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Anthony Comello, 24, frantically typed out a text message, reading ‘I’m on the run,’ and ‘My family is marked,’ moments after reportedly administering the tenth and final shot into Cali’s back.

He was indicted for Cali’s murder in the second-degree in April, and he appeared in court yesterday requesting to be released from jail on a $1 million bond.

Attempting to better his client’s standing, Comello’s attorney, Robert Gottlieb insisted that upon his prospective release, Comello would be placed into the care of his parents.
