The new BMW 328i lets dad be simultaneously responsible while having a bit of fun. Its new turbocharged four cylinder engine gives the car 245 horsepower, enough for sprightly acceleration, but a respectable 30 mpg average. BMW handling and a load of connected cabin tech complete the package.
This Porsche is for the dads who crave sublime sports car performance. The Cayman R's stiff body gives it unparalleled handling, and Porsche pulls 330 horsepower out of its 3.4-liter flat six cylinder engine.
The Chrysler 300 SRT8 would seem to be all about raw power and gangster looks, but this heavy duty sedan adds an extra dimension in the form of a luxury interior. Dad can win pinks at the drag strip while surrounded by opulence.
Dads who look wistfully at tractor-trailer rigs heading down the highway can dream along in their own diesel truck. Boasting a bit more comfort than a Kenworth, the ML350 Bluetec has a soft ride that makes the highway miles go by like nothing at all.
Help dad into the new millennium with the Ford F-150, which takes advantage of modern technology to improve every aspect of its operation. The turbocharged Ecoboost engine gives it tremendous power and better fuel economy than a typical V-8, and its four-wheel-drive mode includes informational apps to help negotiate tough off-road situations.
