2017 Jaguar XE 20d R Sport (Euro-spec)
For those not keeping score at home, a quick recap of the state of the sports sedan: In May 2013, a Lexus IS350 F Sport beat out a BMW 335i M Sport in a three-car comparo. Ten months later, the 3-series’ two-door twin lost to an Audi S5. Then our annual 10Best Cars awards arrived for 2015 without a single 3-series variant on the list for the first time in 23 years.

2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

A lot has changed since 2008, but the Dodge Challenger R/T hasn’t. When Dodge rolled out the retro-styled beast to battle the Ford Mustang—the Chevy Camaro was still on hiatus—we actually found the 376-hp 5.7-liter Hemi-powered R/T model (introduced for 2009) preferable to the slightly quicker, 425-hp 6.1-liter SRT8. But in the years since, the larger Hemi has grown to 6.4 liters and now churns out a tire-melting 485 horsepower. The model with that engine was eventually renamed SRT 392, and its spot at the top of the pecking order was usurped by not one but two new members of the Challenger family that Dodge added for 2015: the 6.4-liter R/T Scat Pack and, of course, the 707-hp Hellcat. Those moves render the 5.7-liter R/T the fourth-quickest Challenger model. Yep, it’s a brave, burlier new world. READ MORE ››

Accident:

If you were involved in an accident and the insurance company deemed your vehicle a total loss, we can help.  If you don't agree with the insurance company's offer, you have the right to hire an independent certified appraiser to determine the actual cash value of your vehicle.  Our certified appraiser will go to the vehicle location, conduct the inspection and complete a certified total loss appraisal on your vehicle.  Total loss claims do require a negotiation phase which we will take care of for you at no additional charge!
