About AutoWise: Who We Are

At AutoWise, we are drivers. Our team of editors and contributors has a passion for cars, trucks, motorcycles, side-by-sides, and all the adventures that come with the open road. And boy have we had some adventures! From traveling the US by motorcycle with a sidecar and a dog, to spending nearly 8-years full-time on the road in a custom overland camper, to chasing the Baja 1000, to competing in the local autocross on the weekends, our team of experts have lived and are living the automotive dream.

We’ve learned much along the way, and are passionate about sharing our experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm for automotive adventures. As such, AutoWise offers practical, useful tips to make the most of your car, truck, motorcycle, or side-by-side. From racing and off-road advice to vehicle maintenance, custom builds, buying advice, and reviews of the latest vehicles, AutoWise is here for you.

We help a quarter-million plus readers each month make informed automotive buying decisions. From the best automotive wax to the best cheap muscle cars or the latest and greatest electric vehicles, AutoWise has done the research to help you make smart purchases.
