SPVM gets new stealth squad cars

Montreal police have a new secret weapon, but, they’re counting on the fact you won’t see it. Until you break the law that is. The SPVM has just bought two black, two-tone Dodge Charger cruisers, no blue and red lights on the roof, no white paint job. No Ford Crown Victoria with distinctive blue logo and station numbers like regular police cars. The job of these stealth-black squad cars is patrolling for the traffic division in the northern and western sectors of the city. The cars are supposed to blend in with their dark colour so people speeding in school Read more and comment!

New Regulations on winter tires in Quebec

Evidence now clearly shows that winter tires are better adapted to winter driving than are all-season tires. They have the advantage of maintaining elasticity at low temperatures for better vehicle control in both braking and turning operations.

2013 Chrysler 300

Today’s car of the day is the 2013 Chrysler 300. The 300 and 300C are the flagship models of the Chrysler lineup, and they're more than just the largest sedans from the automaker. With suave sheetmetal, well-rounded performance even with the base engine, and an impressive level of technology and luxury features. Visually, the 300 sedans are have always hit a sweet spot between modern, ornate, and traditional. In any case, the 2013 Chrysler 300 remains a swaggering hulk of a sedan. Last year's redesign brought a somewhat smoother, less broad-shouldered look, with the cartoonish grille and brash details toned Read more and comment!

2013 Ford Taurus

Today’s car of the day is the 2013 Ford Taurus. Unlike some of its premium-sedan competition like the Hyundai Azera, the Nissan Maxima and the Toyota Avalon, the Taurus offers several engines: an optional 2.0-liter EcoBoost four, which is new to this car for 2013; a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, exclusive to the high-performance SHO; and a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6, the standard Taurus powerplant, upgraded for 2013 with variable timing on all four overhead cams. Output for the naturally aspirated 3.5-liter six tested here rises to 288 hp and 254 lb-ft, gains of 25 hp and 5 lb-ft of torque. Read more and comment!
