Automotive

Seventeen-year-old Canadian racer Lance Stroll will be driving for the Ferrari Formula 1 development team during the 2016 season. After watching him win the Italian Formula 4 Championship last year, we can’t help but get excited to see how the young buck fairs in the big leagues.

After the Ford-Toyota hybrid pickup collaboration imploded, both companies have begun a race to produce the first hybrid pickup. Ford informs us that we should expect to see hybrid pickups hit the street by 2020, while Toyota hasn’t set a timetable.

Spy shots of the Chevy Bolt have been released, which is a big deal since this will be GM’s first high-range electric car. Capable of traveling 200 miles, the Bolt will start at around $30K after incentives. Is this the viable EV that American motorists would actually buy in droves?

Gear

If you are one of those people who hit the snooze button a few too many times, consider purchasing a Beddi alarm clock. This smart unit links up to your phone and monitors the weather, traffic and even when your Uber is going to arrive.

When it comes to avalanches, it is pivotal to be prepared. Fortunately for you, the fine folks at Outdoor Gear Lab have constructed an avalanche bag rating system so you can choose the lifesaver that is best for you in the backcountry.

Lifestyle

Looking to get a taste of the amazing Vermont brewing scene? Consider hopping (nailed it) aboard Burlington Brew Tours and explore all the great breweries the Green Mountain State has to offer.

Nike and Undercover have joined forces to make quite the stylish high-tops. The Court Force sneaker has some khaki coloring mixed with grey detailing that will definitely grab people’s attention, tastefully.
