2021 Vanderhall Brawley - A True-Blue Electric Off-Roader That's Not Street Legal

2021 Vanderhall Brawley - A True-Blue Electric Off-Roader That’s Not Street Legal

35-inch tires, 22 inches of suspension travel, and a quad-motor setup are just some things that define the Vanderhall Brawley

EV-olution has led to the emergence of several new startups. This includes Rivian, Lordstown, Lucid, and Bollinger to name a few. All of them either have pickup trucks, SUVs, or sedans. While they are trying to cater to every major segment, there’s one company that has decided to do something different and go off the road.

We’re talking about Vanderhall, a U.S.-based EV manufacturer that has come up with an electric off-roader called Brawley. It has been around for a decade and has three-wheeled autocycles like the Venice, Carmel, and Edison in its portfolio, but this is its first four-wheeled EV. The Brawley is expected to arrive sometime next year and will start under $35,000.

2023 Kia Sportage - A Crossover For The Masses

2023 Kia Sportage - A Crossover For The Masses

The fifth-gen Sportage is underpinned by a new platform, comes with new drivetrains, and features bold exterior and interior designs

The Sportage is one of the longest-running nameplates in Kia’s history. It has been around since 1993 and is entering its fifth generation as it nears its three-decade anniversary. The new Sportage comes with a plethora of changes. It looks a lot smarter than the current model, is underpinned on a new architecture, and will be offered with hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. Kia will also add a new trim on the fifth-gen Sportage. At this point, not a lot of detail is revealed, but we should hear more of it when it arrives in late 2021 or early 2022.

2022 Genesis G90

2022 Genesis G90

The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class Better Watch Out

Despite manufacturers churning out a variety of luxury SUVs of late, full-size luxury sedans are still the epitome of opulence and lavish luxury. Even now, the luxury sedan market is quite competitive. The new Mercedes S-Class recently came out, Audi has updated their A8, and an all-new BMW 7 Series is on its way. The German trio has been killing it for years, with the occasional Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, or Cadillac CT6 securing a rather insignificant market share. Now, however, Genesis is the one gunning for the full-size luxury sedan segment, by coming up with an all-new G90. Here’s what we know so far.

2018 - 2022 Kawasaki Z900RS CAFE

2018 - 2022 Kawasaki Z900RS CAFE

It’s more than just a Z900RS with a bullet fairing

Kawasaki maintains the momentum it garnered in 2018 by rolling its popular Z900RS CAFE straight over into MY2022. And, why not? It’s hard to argue with success, and the retro-tastic looks and modern performance make excellent bedfellows, especially with the Seventies-fabulous graphics as the icing on the proverbial cake. The “CAFE” falls at the southern edge of liter-bike territory, which could potentially be dangerous for a new rider, but it carries all the requisite safety equipment needed to keep it dirty-side down.

2022 Yamaha Zuma 125

Ample torque low in the rev range and strong power delivery right up to the top end

Yamaha tweaks its Zuma 125 scooter platform ahead of MY2022 with a handful of improvements across the board. Fuel-efficient power comes from a new “Blue Core” engine sporting some pretty fancy fandanglery in the valvetrain. Rugged new bodywork and a re-imagined headlight area seal the deal to further separate this newest-generation adventure scooter from its predecessors and peers.

The 2022 Genesis G80 Sport Brings More Zest And Exclusivity With Bespoke Features and Rear-Wheel Steering

The Genesis brand has come a long way in a short while, and the G80 embodies that perfectly. It was the G80 that made the transition to the Genesis brand, as it actually started life as the Hyundai Genesis. In 2020, came the second generation and a year later the first Genesis EV – the G80e. Now that the mid-size luxury sedan has made a full circle, Genesis wants to make the G80 a bit more exciting. The next evolution of the Genesis G80 will be the Sport version, which brings a few exciting features.

2022 Honda Grom

2022 Honda Grom

Play time from the largest Japanese manufacturer

The Honda Motorcycle Company’s history is one of huge success - including staggering single-model sales - impeccable engineering provenance and, dare it be said, a distinct lack of character. Which makes it all the more surprising when Honda engineers let their hair down and brought us something as wacky as the Monkey Bike. Into the second decade of the 2000s, they seemingly had another fit of giggles and resurrected the Monkey Bike, this time called the Grom. It’s still as mad as ever and, for that, we have to be thankful.

Don’t Be Fooled Into Believing What You’re Hearing About the Nissan Z and Z Nismo

If this latest report is true, which it’s probably not, we could be seeing the Nissan Z Nismo in less than a year

Despite rumors that Nissan was killing off the Z car altogether, September of 2020 brought with it the good news that was the Z proto – a nearly production-ready prototype that will retire the long-lived 370Z with a lot of retro-inspired goodness. The production version of the new Nissan Z will be revealed on August 17, 2021, and now a new report signs a faint glimmer of light on hope that the Nissan Z Nismo will be revealed not long after that. There’s only one problem – the source isn’t exactly the most reputable.

2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T

2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T

The G/T trims include addition like a performance hood, cold-end exhaust, and a console-mounted shifter, amongst other things

Ram is going through a purple patch right now and it doesn’t want to take its foot off the gas pedal. After beating the Chevy Silverado and the Ford F Series in the second-quarter sales this year, Ram is keeping the ball rolling by adding spice to its arsenal. The automaker launched the 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary edition earlier this month and has now come up with a couple more special edition trucks. This time, they’re based on the Laramie and Rebel models.

Ram has introduced G/T models for the 1500 Laramie and the 1500 Rebel that come with aesthetic upgrades and an updated exhaust system. They are priced at a premium over the standard models and will be available within the next couple of months.

Just like every other automaker, Bentley is also on the path of electrification. In fact, the company has ambitious plans to go all-electric by 2030.

2021 BMW 2 Series Coupe

2021 BMW 2 Series Coupe

Is this the new Ultimate Driving Machine from Bavaria?

The 2 Series line can be traced back to the old BMW 1 Series from about a decade ago. You see, over time, the 3 Series had grown dimensionally and BMW wanted a machine that was in line with its DNA. So, they turned their attention to the rear-wheel-drive 1 Series hatchback at the time, added some performance bits and a trunk to it. and then there was the BMW 1M.

BMW purists hailed the 1M as one of the all-time greats. It offered a spirited drive that had been missing from the 3 Series for the longest time. The compact dimensions, rear-wheel drive, and stick shift put the driver back in the Ultimate Driving Machine. BMW later repositioned this model as the 2 Series and M2 for the following generation.

The Lotus Emira Represents Significant Change with Familiarity

The Lotus Emira Represents Significant Change with Familiarity

The Emira is new, but there’s a lot of typical Lotus design mixed in with some AMG power and a tech-happy interior

The day has finally come as Lotus hammers the last nail into its fuel-driven coffin as it spreads its wings to explore the great unknown. Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but Lotus’ final gas-powered car – the one that’s replacing the Exige, Elise, and Evora – has finally been revealed. In a nutshell, it appears to blend cues from the Evija and Evora with a newly designed rear end and a larger footprint than any of its predecessors. As a new competitor aimed at the likes of the Porsche 718 Cayman and the Alpine A110, and the last car from Lotus that won’t be electric, the Emira has a lot of expectations to live up to. Does it have what it takes? Let’s take a deeper look at the finer details.

After Ford and Ram, Chevy Decides to Come up With an Off-Road-Ready Version of the Silverado Truck

After Ford and Ram, Chevy Decides to Come up With an Off-Road-Ready Version of the Silverado Truck

The Silverado ZR2 off-road model will take on the Ford Tremor; not the Raptor

Chevy is taking baby steps towards competing with the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 in the off-roading, performance truck department. Out of the Big Three, Chevy is the only one not to offer a full-fledged off-road model for the Silverado. Ford has the F-150 Raptor (and Raptor R V-8 in the works), whereas Ram has the 1500 TRX. While Chevy hasn’t come up with a standalone off-roading model yet, it has teased a new trim, something similar to what Ford does with the Tremor and Ram does with the 1500 Rebel. Chevy has plans to offer the Silverado in the ZR2 outfit that will give you the freedom to take your bowtie truck off the roads without much hesitation. Well, better late than never!

2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition

Ram has introduced a special edition with more features to commemorate the 1500 Limited pickup truck’s 10th anniversary

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ram brought luxuriousness to the pickup truck segment. Take the 1500, for instance. The higher trims are plush enough to put similarly priced sedans and SUVs to shame. This has even forced companies like Chevy and GMC, and Ford to up the ante and come up with premium offerings.

Ram knows this, too, and isn’t very modest about it. To commemorate the 1500 Limited truck, the epitome of luxuriousness in the Ram 1500 lineup, the automaker has introduced a new 10th Anniversary Edition. The way Ram hyped it, it seemed like the truck will wear a big sticker price; but, it comes at a premium of just $3,000 over the standard Limited model, which isn’t too bad.
