One of our happiest and proudest associations here at TireKicker is with the fine folks at American Muscle and Extreme Terrain. They have been loyal advertisers since 2012. They have another division, American Trucks, that is doing something worth writing about (buying ad space at TireKicker doesn't guarantee editorial coverage).
The 2018 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro S tronic. Want to see a great example of the rapid progression in cars these days? Check out the Phoenix Bureau's review of the 2014 Audi Q5 TDI quattro Tiptronic. Compare the pictures in that review to the pictures in this one. You may not think Audi's mid-size SUV has changed much in four years, but the pictures tell the story. There's been a remarkable evolution of the design. Now look at the technicals.
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Premier 2.0T. In human beings, beauty is only skin deep. In cars, that's true to some extent as well, but good looks can help move a lot more units off the dealer lots. Which could mean the 2018 Chevy Equinox will be seen on a lot more streets and in a lot more driveways. The last-gen Equinox was, to put it charitably, a bit homely. Not only that, but a new one looked like it was ten years old in terms of the styling trends it reflected. There's a reason for that.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
