One word for the Charger Widebody: thick.

Steven Ewing/Roadshow

Greetings, Roadshow readers. It's that time again, where we round up the best that happened during the week that's in the rearview mirror. We saw a little bit of everything between our in-depth review of the 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody and Tesla news surrounding an Acceleration Boost update. Of course, there was plenty more, as laid out below.

Here's a recap of all the automotive goodness that happened from Dec. 15-21.

2020 Dodge Charger Widebody

This is one chunky sedan, but in the best possible way. The Charger Widebody packs big power, and an even bigger value. Let Managing Editor Steven Ewing tell you all about why this car is still so good, even after 15 years.

2020 Toyota Highlander

One of the segment's top dogs is back with fresh looks and more refinement. The large-and-family-hauling-barge that is the Toyota Highlander impressed Reviews Editor Craig Cole in his first drive. But, he still had to ask the question: Is it the best large crossover SUV out there today?

2020 Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra hasn't been the most exciting compact car to look at in, well, a long time. A total redesign hopes to change that, and Managing Editor Steven Ewing got behind the wheel for the first time. It's a lot better, and has a pretty good value proposition to offer, but perhaps the extra coin is best spent elsewhere.
