You say Samurai, I say Feroza You say Samurai, I say Feroza

Growing up in the 90s, I always had my eye on cars. I always had a soft spot for the smaller offroaders - the Suzuki Samurai and the Jeep Wrangler particularly come to mind. But above both of those, were the chisel-jawed good looks of the Daihatsu Feroza.

How Modern 4WD Systems Work And Why They Don't Suck as Bad as You Think. How Modern 4WD Systems Work And Why They Don't Suck as Bad as You Think.

Look, it’s 4WD if it drives all 4 wheels. There. There are some debates in car world where there are certainly some gray area topics:

4WD Cadillac? Yes Please! 4WD Cadillac? Yes Please!

As promised when granted authorship here, I periodically will take pictures and post some of the most unusual vehicles that I find in my journeys in North Dakota. Like my two prior posts I found this beauty in Bismarck.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Holden Drover Ladies and gentlemen, the Holden Drover

(OK, so it’s a slightly tweaked Suzuki SJ30 Jimny.)

DOTS: Land Rover Series II (IIa - ?) in the 'Hood DOTS: Land Rover Series II (IIa - ?) in the 'Hood

I couldn’t help taking this picture after seeing a really nice little gem of a Land Rover in the neighborhood recently:

How can I tell if my 2003 Explorer is 4WD or RWD? How can I tell if my 2003 Explorer is 4WD or RWD?

I was recently gifted a 2003 Explorer XLT (first car comes from your grandparents, tradition in my family), and don’t know much about the specific model, partly because my grandparents didn’t know a thing about the car, and partly because I have exactly zero experience in this kind of thing. I know that is has the…

Down On The Street: Delica Edition Down On The Street: Delica Edition

Do any of you Jalopnik lifers remember Murilee’s Down On The Street series? That was back in the pre-Kinja days, when you had to “@” your replies to posts and comments. We’re only talking about 5 years ago - but it may as well have been the Middle Ages. Oh, the memories!

Why I think the 2017 Ridgeline being fwd-based is actually clever Why I think the 2017 Ridgeline being fwd-based is actually clever

Ever since the official reveal of the new Ridgeline, comment sections of car blogs and facebook posts all over the web have been flooding with comments from truck affictionados, enthusiasts and armchair experts claiming that, since the Ridgeline is FWD-based, it’s not a real truck. Trucks (or everything) should be…

This rare old thing just rolled into the shop. 4WD with locking Truck front hub conversion! First one I've ever seen up close! The want is so strong!!!!!!!

A[4]WD - What is AWD/4WD and how does it work? A[4]WD - What is AWD/4WD and how does it work?

4WD vs AWD, as big a battleground among car people as steam engines vs gas engine am I right? Well no, but its probably just as confusing if not as popularly debated, if for nothing else than the determination of manufactures to brand their all wheel control system as being the only one to prevent you from hitting…

LOL "4 Wheel drive" LOL "4 Wheel drive"

Its extra funny because the CRV just won "SUV" of the year too. Good job with that.

Snowpocolypsed? The 911 Will Save You! Snowpocolypsed? The 911 Will Save You!

Is there any car in the universe that is as versatile as Porsche's venerable 911? I think not. Check out this snowy drift battle between these yellow bananas. Do you need 4-wheel drive or is 2 just right? Who cares! DRIFT!

In Light of All This Snowpocalypse Madness

An old farmer that lives next to the property I hunt on has a proverb of legendary status in Mille Lacs County:

Friday Evening Question #4: Options in a World of Compromise Friday Evening Question #4: Options in a World of Compromise

The world hates the Juke. We don't share the same sentiment, so when I heard that you could not get the Juke Nismo RS with its best drivetrain configuration (6MT and AWD), I felt like Nissan had come too close to doing us all a solid to once again have been juked by the bean counters figuring that we can only…

What do you folks think of the Toyota Sequoia? What do you folks think of the Toyota Sequoia?

My parents want to rid the Wrangler and Prius and replace it with a capable 4WD SUV... they say they "need" 7 seats, but I really don't think we do. However, we need something with a ton of interior space regardless, which is probably what they really want. I suggested 4Runner, Sequoia, Tahoe, and Dodge Durango. I'm…
