Our buddy Russ Bond from Painkillerz was intending to drive the 2015 Chevy Corvette today. Mother Nature had other ideas.
We all have certain needs when choosing a new car. Some need space, while others need something that sips fuel. Then of course there are those of us who just want to go fast. The Chevy Trax offers those a bit of utility for those who need it, but want it in a package that is easy to manage around town. While I prefer something with a manual transmission and with a bit more power, I found myself grinning like a fool just about every time I drove Chevrolet’s tiny tripper.
The biggest shame is that our U.S. readers can’t buy one, as this puppy is Canada only.
“Dad, have you noticed how friendly people are around here? People keep waving at you.”
My kid’s observation was spot on, the people of Bancroft are friendly, but this was different than what we have experienced on other visits to the home of the Rally of the Tall Pines. In this case, every single thumbs up, wave or smile came from the driver of a traditional domestic pickup. Cottage Country is also pick-up country and the locals loved the Titan.
Most buyers of the 2013 Nissan Titan Crew Cab will be choosing it as a hauler for their family and toys. The longer cab means a shorter cargo bed. Great for camping gear and water toys, but not quite long enough for the long loads a contractor might haul. For those guys, the 79? bed of the King Cab would be a better choice.
For those of you who missed it, yesterday I shared the first edition of a new series I am trying called 15 Seconds With, where I post a short daily video on Instagram with something to say about my wheels of the week. Today’s edition comes from Silent Lake Provincial Park, near Bancroft, where we have brought along Big Red, a 2013 Nissan Titan to do some work while we camp.
With all of the social media hype surrounding short video postings, I have decided to start using Instagram videos to create daily car review video bites for my gig over at Wheels.ca. I am a week in and I kinda like the medium. I hope you like it too.
First up is the 2013 Lincoln MKZ. There has been a lot of chatter in the media debating whether Lincoln has lost the plot when it comes to styling and the future of the brand. Most of those who are panning the style are old guys who don’t like change.
