One of the highlights of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is its new mild hybrid powertrain. The 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine comes with an "EQ Boost" setup, which uses a small electric motor to provide additional thrust, and to run the car's 48-volt electrical system. It's really sweet – I took a short spin in a European-spec S500 with this powertrain, and can confirm that it's silky smooth and offers plenty of power. But of course, there's always room for more power.
A big win for Honda this morning, the new Accord is named 2018 North American Car of the Year. The excellent new midsize sedan bests the other two Car of the Year finalists, the Kia Stinger and Toyota Camry. Elsewhere in the North American awards, the bigger and bolder Lincoln Navigator is named Truck of the Year (even though it's an SUV), beating its Ford counterpart, the Expedition, as well as the Chevy Colorado ZR2.
Mercedes-Benz says its G-Class is a true automotive icon. And really, it’s hard to argue otherwise. After all, the G has been with us in basically the same form for almost four decades. How many other vehicles can withstand the test of time like that? And indeed, while the 2019 G-Class features a number of substantial updates over its predecessor, the iconic Geländewagen largely stays the course.
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".
