Retro in the Right Ways

acura integra Full Overview

Say you’re looking for a right-size new car that’s not boring, with four doors for everyday practicality, and make it premium because, hey, you deserve it. With the average price of a new vehicle having recently risen to nearly 50 grand, something around the pre-supply-chain-crunch average price tag of about $35,000 would be aces. Provided you haven’t already locked on a fully loaded mainstream family sedan or an SUV, the 2023 Acura Integra is definitely worth a look.

This Acura resurrects an iconic name to compete in an entry-luxury segment defined by tiny, luxury-badged offerings such as the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, Mercedes A-Class, and Audi A3.

ford bronco Full Overview

As it turns out, Moab’s Easter Jeep Safari isn’t just for Jeeps. Early on in our trip to EJS 2022 we bumped into our pal, president of Skyjacker Suspension, Lonnie “Jr” McCurry, in his brand-new 2021 First Edition Ford Bronco. Not surprisingly, Lonnie and the company had been working on a suspension system for the new Bronco, and after some time in design and testing, the new parts were on his rig, in Moab, ready for an off-road beatdown. But what comes with this suspension lift kit? What does it cost? How does it work? These questions and more were running through our heads when we saw the vehicle on the trail.
