Your nightly cull of automotive, gear and lifestyle news, all in one place.

The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.

Automotive

Nissan’s hotly anticipated Titan xD will start at $41k. Pricey base price, yes, but it may well be worth it. The 5.0L Cummins V-8 will pump out 310hp and an earth-moving 555lb-ft of torque. That’s big-money power.

 

Sick of parking your own car? A new app called Zirx is about to make your life a lot easier. With the push of a button, Zirx will send a uniformed employee to meet you and “valet” your ride.

Chevy has recently trademarked “Corvette E-Ray.” Although we cannot confirm that Chevy is building a hybrid or EV Corvette, we can dream of linear torque curves and silent burnouts all night long.

Gear

Money clips are a great way to take your George Costanza-size wallet and slim it down to a manageable size. Now Gerber has added a thin-profile, stainless-steel knife to make the traditional clip a tactical necessity.

It wouldn’t be outlandish to guess that you own at least an iPhone, iPad, AppleWatch and/or a flurry of other tech gear. Rather than carrying them in a backpack, consider using a Tech Dopp Kit by This Is Ground.

Lifestyle

A solid flask can last you a lifetime and will confidently keep you trusty drink safe during any winter activity. Williams-Sonoma has recently added a Belmont 14-Karat Gold-Plated Flask to its collection that is a perfect stocking stuffer.

A casual sweater can easily become your favorite article of clothing if you pick the right one. Fortunately for you, Ball and Buck has made it easy for you by making an awesome everyday wear called The Crew Neck Pullover.
