Chevrolet Impala vs. Dodge Charger: Compare Cars

The formula for the full-size sedan is pretty simple. It has to be spacious and comfortable, and a reasonable price wouldn’t hurt, either.

The two cars we are pitting against each other here each take different routes to that formula. The Chevrolet Impala opts for front-wheel drive and 4-cylinder or V-6 power, while the Dodge Charger goes with rear- or all-wheel drive and V-6 or V-8 power. Both work well, but which is best for you? Let’s dig deeper to find out.

Both cars are equally attractive. The Impala’s crisply themed sheet metal has a bit of Mercedes CLS in its rear quarters. Most cars are best approached

Haute Vegan Cuisine Is One of Dining’s Hottest Trends

The vegan renaissance is now. Vegan cuisine—which doesn’t incorporate any animal products, such as butter or eggs—is no longer the milquetoast cuisine of choice for your most devout PETA friends, served with a side of proselytization and self-righteousness. Although only 3 percent of Americans declare themselves vegan, plant-based food is becoming the cuisine of choice—or at least a regular option—for non-vegans who want a meal that will leave them feeling like they’ve made healthy choices… both for themselves and for the environment. To that end, vegan restaurants—some of them quite gourmet—are cropping up around the country, many helmed by extremely well-regarded chefs.

One of NYC’s hottest restaurateurs, Ravi DeRossi, plans to open five vegan restaurants in the next year. “We opened our first four months ago, and every month we’re turning thousands of people away,” says DeRossi, talking about Avant Garden, his white-hot vegan spot. DeRossi has also turned his tiki bar Mother of Pearl entirely

Global Cadillac Sales Up 1 Percent To 22502 (Or 22442) Units In March 2016

Global sales of Cadillac vehicles totaled either 22,502 units or 22,442 units in March 2016, an increase of 1 percent year-over-year. “Why 22,502 or 22,442?”, you may ask. And ask you most certainly should!

Here’s the deal: Cadillac’s official report tallies the sales at 22,442 units for March 2016. But when we add up the individual model line totals from Cadillac’s own report, we get 22,502 units for March 2016. A similar discrepancy is in place for March 2015, with Cadillac’s report showing 22,229 units sold in March 2015, with the line totals adding up to 22,228.

We reached out for official comment, but at the time of this writing, all’s quiet.

Now then: in March, the brand began initial deliveries of the 2016 Cadillac CT6 full-size sedan. Shipments of the 2017 Cadillac XT5 midsize luxury crossover are scheduled to begin in April in the United States.

“Launching new products into our largest markets expands our portfolio, continues to build our product substance, and

1 Killed, 1 Shot Overnight Outside Blue Island Night Club

BLUE ISLAND, IL — Two people were shot in Blue Island early Monday morning in the 1800 block of 127th Street.

The shooting happened around 1:04 a.m. Letter-marked placards up to the letter “M” were placed next to shell casings found on the street.

The crime scene stretched for at least a half block along 127th Street, from Honore to the railroad tracks intersecting 127th Street and Lincoln.

The wounded were taken in critical condition to Metro South Hospital in Blue Island and Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The man taken to Metro South Hospital was pronounced dead; the man who was brought to Advocate Christ is expected to survive.

Witnesses told NBC Chicago that a fight broke out inside the bar and three people were asked to leave. Moments later, gunfire rang out. Nobody is in custody.

“I was in the office,” the manager said. “I don’t know what happened.”

Melania Trump shows casual look as she picks up son Barron from school

She is a former model and potential future First Lady of the United States, so when Melania Trump is seen in public, she is always dressed to kill.

Throughout Trump’s campaign she has always been somewhere close to her husband, dressed head-to-toe in high fashion, her hair styled to perfection and her makeup adjusted just so.

But it seems Melania does have a more casual side as the 45-year-old was spotted doing the school run in Manhattan today while dressed down in jeans, flats, and a plain navy blue overcoat.

Melania stepped out of Trump Tower in New York looking remarkably different from her usual glamorous self wearing a simple pair of flats, blue jeans and a navy blue overcoat on Friday
