At this time of year, everyone wants you to know about the best cars, trucks and SUVS of the year. AutoPacific has already taken a big step in that direction, but with a twist: Partnering with Intellichoice, AutoPacific shared the best vehicles of the year, as picked by you – and that’s saying something! The Awards are called the Motorist’s Choice Awards and this year included the Lexus LS430, The Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4×2, the Infiniti QX56 and the Audi A6 4.2 Quattro. Where else can you go to get the best possible input from your own peers about the latest vehicles in the marketplace? Since you’re here, we think you’ve come to the right place.

My Personal Choices for Best Rides of the Year
It’s part of my job to drive a new vehicle nearly every week. In some cases, more than one vehicle at week gets the once-over, not only by me, but by a number of the analysts and experts at VehicleVoice and AutoPacific. As the resident speed-guy, I might have a slightly different take on things and while I do try to avoid going to court, I do need to put my foot down. And that’s part of what my list is about.

This week on Let’s Talk Cars, a very special treat, not just for our lucky test driver, but for you, the viewer! VehicleVoice correspondent David Barrett got a chance to take a Ferrari 360 Spyder on the Southern California test track at El Toro. When he caught his breath, he took out the new Corvette Z06 for a spin and a little comparison. I tried to hold the camera steady in the front seat. It was awesome, and you can experience it yourself right here! If you’re prone to motion sickness, take your medicine.

In the something a little bit tamer category, next we bring you a review of Ford’s Explorer Sport Trac, the most innovative member of the Explorer family.

And finally, we do a little reading. Yeah, I said reading. After all those engines revving and tires smoking, can you blame me? A new book by automotive luminaries Charlie Hughes and William Jeanes takes on the American Automotive Industry. It’s called Branding Iron and we got a chance to ask the authors about the book’s message and the future of such companies as Ford and GM.
