It may have rained today but as they say, “The show must go on!” And that is exactly what happened at the 3rd Annual PBA Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show. Below please feel free to browse the gallery of cars that made it out for the car show at Northern Valley Demarest High School in Demarest, NJ.
When thinking of Lincoln’s largest family sedan, we would typically think of the Town Car. The MKS has revamped Lincoln’s lineup as their top sedan and has done it in style. With Lincoln’s MKS, they’ve expanded their market to appeal to a younger audience as well. We stopped at Town Motors in Englewood and picked up our Lincoln for the day and definitely left with all positive thoughts.
Our Lincoln MKS had a very smooth ride and felt very luxurious. For a big sedan it did not drive like a “boat” as one would expect. The non Ecoboost engine had plenty of power under the hood which made me think that the Ecoboost engine would be a great experience. If you are someone in search for a sedan with plenty of features and space, this is the one for you.
Pros: Spacious trunk and back seat, well powered even without the EcoBoost, great design, a lot of features for what you pay.
Cons: Navigating the entertainment system proved to have some challenges, similar to the MKZ.
Base Price: $42,870 || Price as Tested: $53, 565
Vehicle Layout: Front-engine, AWD, 5-passenger, 4-door sedan
Engine: 3.7L V6 || Transmission: 6-Speed Automatic w/ Paddle Activation
Curb Weight: 4391 lbs || Length/Width/Height: 205.6/85.5/61.6 inches

To our AUTOcrats, we want to tell you what your first purchase of the spring season should be. As someone who hates to see a car with scratches especially after a nice wash, here is what you need to do. The product is called Grit Guard. As an actual user of this product, I stand by it and can actually say it works. In short, the Grit Guard lets you wash your car in a scratch free environment. The grating separates the bottom of the bucket where the dirt lays and your cleaning applicators. This ensures that when you wash your car there is no dirt or grime endangering you paint and finish on the car. Enjoy the video below that explains Grit Guard and how it works and hopefully you have a scratch free wash!

The media has been abuzz about the all-new Cadillac CTS. Why? Because of a TWIN-TURBO(!), 420-horspower V6 engine. That’s why. The insanity of this car is amazing and it produces an astounding 430-lb-ft. of torque. We truly can’t wait to drive it!
Cadillac will be live-streaming the debut of the 2014 CTS on Facebook on Tuesday, March 26 at 7:15pm EDT. Check out the event page on Facebook .

The all-new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, along with the SRT model, will have many new features and accessories. They will come with new drivetrains, have a more luxury feel and improved off-road options, as well as a standard touchscreen radio and the base engine will be the Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine with 290 horses.
Here’s a great Jeep commercial that just recently debuted. The commercial starts off with the famous Al Pacino speech from “Any Given Sunday” and is very well put together. We would not expect anything less from Jeep and we hope you enjoy the commercial as much as we did.
