Ford Australia wants to build one as it sees a lot of potential for a Ranger-based Desert Runner in the Land Down Under

The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.

Toyota Elevates The Tundra Pickup Truck With A New Flagship Trim Called The ‘Capstone’

The Tundra Capstone will come with the hybrid engine and in the CrewMax body style as standard

The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out a few months ago with an insane amount of changes. The Japanese truck is known for its tough build and reliability, and those were a couple of reasons why the automaker was able to milk it for 14 long years without any major change. But, the company brought in the new Tundra for the 2022 model year with a lot of changes on the outside, inside, and under the hood. Just when it looked like the hype behind the truck had gone down, Toyota decided to do something about it.

The automaker revealed a new flagship trim in the already crowded lineup called the ‘Capstone’. It will be the apex trim in Tundra’s portfolio and is expected to start at over $60,000. The top-grade will arrive in Spring this year.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder - Driven

2022 Nissan Pathfinder - Driven

The Nissan Pathfinder has been redesigned for the 2022 model and starts at a shade under $35,000

Nissan’s desire to get a bigger share of the ‘three-row SUV’ pie resulted in it reinvigorating the Pathfinder. The Pathfinder has been around for a long time and needs no introduction. For the 2022 model, the SUV has been redesigned on the inside and out, and it looks quite fresh and modern. Just like most of the other three-row SUVs, the Pathfinder is trying to offer the practicality of a minivan in an SUV form.

The Pathfinder doesn’t have a widespread buffet like the Ford Explorer and is offered in just four trims. It also comes with just one engine and transmission option. However, it has a spacious cabin with lots of little storage places inside. The towing capacity is impressive, too. The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder recently arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters, and here are our impressions of it.

Your Tesla Model S Plaid Will Now Have A Track Mode!

Tesla has started rolling out the Track Mode on the Model S Plaid via an over-the-air update

The Model S Plaid has been the talk of the town ever since it was launched last year. It has become the king of the drag strip within a short span of time, but it wasn’t as good on circuits and tracks as it was on straight roads. Don’t get me wrong, it is a beast even there, but it needed something like the Model 3 Performance’s Track Mode to complete it. Fast forward to the present day, Tesla has done exactly that.

The Tesla Model S Plaid is now available with the Track Mode, an over-the-air update that has already started rolling out, to make cornering on this just as good as its straight-line sprints.

The paradigm shift to EVs has resulted in the birth of many new companies that probably wouldn’t have had the chance if not electrification. Forget about big shots like Rivian and Bollinger; I’m talking about companies like Alpha Motors, Elation, and Electra, to name a few. Another company to climb the wagon is an Indian startup called Mean Metal Motors. MMM has taken the same course as most EV startups; build an electric hypercar. The MMM Azani comes with Model S Plaid-rivaling specs like 1,000 horses, 220 mph top speed, 0-60 mph in 2.1 seconds, etc.

EV-olution is at its peak and we now have an electric offering in every genre one can think of.

The Thundertruck is an electric off-roader with some impressive specs, but what makes it even better is how getting a range extender for it turns it into a 6x6 truck. Crazy, isn’t it?

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

The 2022 Nissan Frontier is a huge upgrade over the outgoing model, breaking the chain of a 15-year design philosophy

The Nissan Frontier has been a trusted workhorse for its owners for a very long time. The truck has been as reliable as it can get. Last year, a Chicago-based delivery driver, Brian Murphy, clocked one million miles on it! However, Nissan took the ‘don’t fix if it ain’t broke’ philosophy a little too seriously. At a time when automakers come up with significant changes even in facelifts every year, Nissan retained the same design language on the Frontier for 15 years! But, for the new, third-gen 2022 model, we get a revamped design that puts it in line with the modern trucks. The company introduced a new engine and gearbox for the previous model year and the same has been carried over this time as well.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier in the top-sped PRO-4X off-road trim arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here’s all you need to know about it.

The 2022 Audi R8 Performance V-10 RWD Is Improved In Every Aspect, Including More Power!

The 2022 Audi R8 Performance RWD now comes with a Variable Dynamic Steering setup and 40 horses more than before

The Audi R8 has been a staple when one talks about performance cars. The car comes with a naturally aspirated V-10 that makes us go weak in the knees even today. We are even more emotionally invested in it now because the R8 is about to be electrified and the V-10 engine will be buried forever. The same engine powers the Lamborghini Huracan as well, but the marque is working on developing a twin-turbo V-8 successor for it. But, until the final adieu, Audi will try to milk the machine as much as possible, and the latest updates to it are a testament to that.

The Model 3 is in a league of its own, and in this race, it proved the same by obliterating the RS3.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

The F-150 Lightning has everything going in its favor except for the range and towing capacity

Ford launched the F-150 Lightning earlier this year. The electric truck checks almost all the boxes and can be considered as the first mainstream electric pickup truck for the masses. There are a lot of electric trucks launched in recent years, like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the Lordstown Endurance, the Bollinger B2, etc. But, none of them offer the all-round capability that the F-150 Lightning does.

The Ford truck comes with all the bells and whistles one can ask for, and then some more. For now, Ford has launched it in one body style and three basic trims plus an exclusive work truck model, but expect it to grow in the coming years. With all the subsidies and credits, the F-150 Lightning works out to be the cheapest full-size truck in the market today! (more on this in the ‘Pricing’ section). From the looks of it, the F-150 Lightning seems to be an all-rounder that offers good power outputs, decent range, and a lot of tech features. Do you think it will be a runaway success, or will the loyalists look around at other trucks?

If history suggests anything, then the EV should win this race; but will the 911 Turbo S bow down so easily?

When EVs take on internal combustion engines, they win almost always. Cars like the Tesla Model S Plaid have beaten some of the beloved heavyweights, like the SF90 Stradale, the Nissan GT-R, the Lamborghini Huracan, etc. However, its chief rival, the Porsche Taycan, hasn’t had the same impact. So, how does the Taycan, in the top-spec Turbo S trim, perform against one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip, the Porsche 911 Turbo S? Let’s find out.

The Spyros Panopoulos Chaos Is A 3,000-HP Greek Ultra-Car That Costs Over $14 Million!

Or you can get yourself a Koenigsegg Agera R, a Bugatti Chiron, and a Pagani Huayra, and still be left with a lot of money!

Back in 2020, a Greek automotive designer named Spyros Panopoulos made us aware of the existence of a 3,000-horsepower ‘ultra-car’ called the ‘Chaos’. It was to be unveiled at the 2021 Geneva Auto Show, but since the show was canceled, that didn’t happen. However, Spyros Panopoulos (also the name of the company) has finally launched the Chaos after teasing it a few times in the past.

The Chaos is no ordinary beast. It makes over 3,000 horses in its best avatar, and no; it’s not an EV! The power is drawn from a V-10 engine. The company claims a 0-62 mph time of just 1.55 seconds and a quarter-mile time of under 7.5 seconds! Get over the Tesla Model S Plaid; the Chaos is here to wreak havoc!

The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!

Can a 1972 Beetle with an electric powertrain beat a stock 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the drag strip?

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is arguably one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip. It has even beaten the likes of the Audi R8 Spyder. So, why even bother to put it up against an old-school, 1970s Volkswagen Beetle? Well, because this Beetle has been electrified and makes 450 horses! The Porsche makes more horsepower, but can the instant torque of the Beetle prove to be too much for the sports car?

2022 Toyota Tundra

The third-gen 2022 Toyota Tundra features a new V-6 engine, bolder aesthetics, and upgraded tech

Toyota introduced the new, third-gen 2022 Tundra a couple of months back. The third-gen truck was due for a long as the second-gen model was in production for 14 years. The company tweaked it many times in its run, but it started to feel too long in the tooth when compared to its chief rivals. The new 2022 Tundra was expected to come with a lot of new specs and features and it didn’t disappoint.

The highlight of the new Tundra are its drivetrain options. The company ditched the old V-8 workhorse in favor of a V-6 that is offered in three configurations. Apart from this, it rides on a new platform and features a new suspension setup, has a sharper exterior, and comes with a tech-heavy, updated interior. It starts at nearly $36,000; up by over $1,500 over the model it replaces.

The RWD BMW M3 Competition isn’t as quick as the xDrive model, but the lighter weight plays to its advantage
