While pickup trucks get bigger with every redesign, this new crop of mid-sized vans offers impressive utility with decent fuel economy and easy parking. We drove the 2015 Ram ProMaster City to find out how far vans have really come since your last ride in an Aerostar.
This offensive nest of metal plates is allegedly the latest Red Bull mobile party machine. They were going for “armored moon vehicle,” how are we feeling about that?
Last week somebody called the cops on this 1994 Plymouth Voyager low-budget ice cream van for swerving into oncoming traffic and slamming curbs. Cops rolled up and arrested the allegedly intoxicated driver while he was selling ice cream to kids.
So you heard Mercedes is bringing a smallish utility van to America and found yourself thinking: who cares. I was there too until I put a few miles on a 2016 Mercedes Metris, and experienced genuinely amazing driving dynamics. In a utility wagon that can carry 2,502 pounds.
Nothing soothes the soul like mountain air with a tinge of diesel. So here I am at the feet of the skyline they put on Coors cans, in a brand-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4x4 that’s been converted to a badass off-road domicile by the overland RV experts at Sportsmobile.
The Blue Bird Micro Bird T-Series is the first Ford Transit to be officially turned into a school bus. Maybe riding the short bus won’t be so embarrassing when it comes with 3.5 liters of two-turbo fury!
Mercedes-Benz is providing some special G-Wagens, Sprinters, and GLE “Coupes” to run around with dinosaurs in the new Jurassic World movie... but this Unimog “Mobile Veterinary Unit” is obviously the coolest part of the lineup.
Is it slow? I don’t care. Is it unreliable? We’ll sort it out. I want it, with our without those useless golf clubs. Possibly without.
This Mercedes V-Class in fire-department tuner car livery is for those of you who habitually answer the question "why" with "why not?" Seriously though, I find this unjustifiably alluring.
Inside every van is a sports car, just waiting to be set free. Except when the sports car's on the outside... as in, painted onto the outside. Either way, this is a great use of the big blank canvas on this Chevy Astro.
You don't have the cash to turn a truck into a glam-camper nor the time to Febreze the stank of marijuana out of a VW Westfalia. The small, simple, but seriously-capable off-road camper of your youthful dreams could have been the Daihatsu Mud Master C.
I like vans, and I don't care who knows it. For me, there's something so deeply, satisfyingly, and, yes, maybe erotically practical about the box-on-wheels concept. It's just such a glorious maximization of usable space. That's why I was delighted to head down to SC to spend some quality van time in the new line of…
We know the 2014 Nissan NV200 is great for lugging art projects, the occasional motorcycle, or enough pizzas to feed a soccer league. But how long can it support human life before its occupant goes completely insane? (Spoiler: Not that long.)
General Motors reports they've already had "nearly 30,000 orders" from dealers for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. To fill the expected continuous demand, they're increasing staff at the Wentzville, Missouri plant again by almost 30%.
I just landed at the Norfolk, Virginia airport with a long way to go and no way to get there. Thankfully, friends at Nissan came to my rescue with a 2014 NV200 van to shake down. A car and a place to live? These guys are alright.
Tired of finally getting a potential mate to come home with you, only to be shut down when they realize you live in a crappy van? Sucks, doesn't it. You need a Mercedes-Benz Marco Polo; it's got the vagabondy swagger of a classic top-popper, with a three-pointed star to on the grille to prove you live on wheels by…
The 2015 Ford Transit van is pretty hard to roll over (I know, I tried) but if you really get enthusiastic about wrecking one you'll crash in the comfort of a 15 foot airbag.
In Britain, if you have a van, you're not just a man anymore, you are a man with a van. Vauxhall knows that. That's why the new Vivaro has to go through a few extreme test procedures.
The ubiquitous Ford E-Series van is finally bowing out to the 2015 Ford Transit, synchronizing Ford's van lineup around the world. The new Transit is a great hauler, but don't be fooled by the car-style dashboard, it's a van alright. We know, we autocrossed it (Sort of).
