automobile : of, relating to, or concerned with self-propelled vehicles or machines (typically on land) — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary, Urban Dictionary


Roget’s II (, Merriam-Webster Thesaurus, Visuwords


Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

    Sportback fever is alive and well over at Audi. While we’re still not totally on board with SUVs touting sloped rooflines, we can at least appreciate that Audi calls these models “Sportbacks” rather than crossover-coupes.

    Ford’s blobular 1995 Explorer was still nearly a year out in 1994, but the Blue Oval’s Power Stroke concept pickup gave clues to the company’s styling directive for the cars, trucks, and SUVs it planned to sell to consumers throughout the latter half of the 1990s. Besides showcasing the brand’s forthcoming design language, the Power... The post Ford’s Power Stroke Concept Truck Is the Epitome of ’90s Americana appeared first on Automobile Magazine.

    LOS ANGELES–The eighth-generation Volkswagen GTI has already been shown, and we’re anxiously awaiting our first chance to check it out in person.
