Coolest sedans/hatchbacks for under $20,000

The only thing that stays the same, is that things are always changing. Records and cassettes gave way to MP3s. VHS and DVDs have largely been replaced with streaming services. In the automotive world, crossover SUVs are now the most popular class of vehicles in the United States.

Kelley Blue Book has been producing a list of the coolest sedans/hatchbacks for under $20,000 since 2003.

How is 2018 Mazda6 turbocharger different?

In a thankfully bygone era, vehicle buyers had to choose between performance and fuel economy.

By no means is the automaker the first one to add this feature to its powertrains – but they have changed the way this component delivers power without sacrificing fuel efficiency. So, how is the 2018 Mazda6 turbocharger different? To put it simply, the Dynamic Pressure Turbocharger can spool up faster and at much lower RPM than many competing iterations. Let’s take a look.

Should I buy my car when my lease is over?

But, to help customers learn the right questions to ask. We found some helpful videos that will kick-start your journey. Read the rest of this entry »

Most new vehicles for sale or lease at the Gorman McCracken Mazda showroom recommend using regular grade gas.

So, is regular grade gasoline going to get more octane? That possibility is certainly on the table; but what will that mean to you as a vehicle-owner? Let’s take a look together.
