2022 Land Rover Defender Debuts With A V-8 Engine

2022 Land Rover Defender Debuts With A V-8 Engine

It also comes with new special models and trims, tech upgrades, and exterior enhancements

Land Rover resurrected the Defender moniker in a brand new avatar in 2019 after a three-year hiatus. It didn’t look as rugged and boxy as its predecessor, but it came loaded to the brim in terms of features and gizmos. Although it had everything that one would want from a premium off-roader, there was one glaring omission – the V-8 engine. Perhaps Land Rover was just testing waters when it launched the new Defender and wanted to keep something for later, or realized that the market is too competitive.

Either way, the good news is that the 2022 Defender has been introduced with eight-cylinders under the hood. Apart from this, it also comes with a few other tweaks here and there that have smoothened out some wrinkles.

The Cheap Tesla Might Be Called The Model 2 And Cost Just $18,000!

One – it could arrive sooner than expected. And, two – it will cost not $25,000; but $18,000!

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

The GLA 250 is an all-round package, but all the droolworthy features are offered as optional that make it exorbitantly expensive

Mercedes launched the 2021 GLA in July last year and promoted it as a much safer, spacious, and off-road-oriented compact vehicle. While we don’t agree that offering a four-wheel-drive system makes it an off-roader, it certainly seems to have become a better package overall.

The GLA is a seasoned product that only gotten better this time around. It feels a lot more luxurious and modern than its predecessor. But, does spending close to $40,000 for an entry-level, compact Mercedes with a four-pot mill make a whole lot of sense?

BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla

More like a warning shot wrapped as a prediction of sorts

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

Nissan’s full-size SUV has been updated with fresh tech, but does that make it good enough?

The Nissan Armada started life back in 2004 riding on Nissan Titan underpinnings and was built in Canton Mississippi. All that changed when the second-generation was launched for the 2017 model year, with production shifting to Yakuhashi, Kyushu, Japan as Nissan based the second-gen on Nissan Patrol underpinnings that feature some very specific modifications to make it suitable for the North American market. As of 2021, the Nissan Armada has been updated to feature a prettier face, a new center console inside, and some updated technology. As is the case with all refreshed models, we’ve been wondering if Nissan did enough to keep the Armada relevant in such a brutally competitive market. Does it hold its own against the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition? Well, let’s find out.

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

A quirky exterior, spacious interior, multiple powertrain and battery options, but a poor range

Hyundai has had the Ioniq moniker in its arsenal for quite some time. In fact, it has jumped shipped within the portfolio many times. It was first launched as a hybrid car, then as an electric one, and finally as a plug-in hybrid. Last year, however, it received a promotion and became the South Korean automaker’s electric sub-brand. Hyundai plans to have 23 EVs by 2025 and the journey commences with the Ioniq 5.

This Volkswagen Golf Mk. 2 Puts Every Porsche On The Planet To Shame

A modified 90s hatchback shows Porsches how it’s done

When you think about compact cars with great tuning potential, 8 out of 10 people would probably think of the Honda Civic. However, in Europe, there’s another popular alternative – the Volkswagen Golf. A while back, a video was circulating around the internet where someone in a Nissan 350Z was chasing a Porsche 997 GT3. At the same time, a stock-looking Golf Mk1 came out of nowhere and embarrassed both the Z-car and the 911, without even a sweat. The Golf on the video is an Mk2 and it’s said to be the fastest on the Nurburgring.

Apparently It Costs A Fortune To Charge a Tesla In Texas Right Now

The biggest advantage of owing an electric vehicle just went down the drain

The winter snow in Texas left people dead in their tracks. It has impacted even basic services like power and water and has left the Lone Star state crippled.

The rocketed prices have affected EV owners, too, as Oilprice.com reports that charging a Tesla cost the owners around $900, which is almost 50 times more than how much it generally costs!

Yet Another Reason BMW Engines Are Junk

Yet Another Reason BMW Engines Are Junk

Okay, not all BMW engines are junk, but there have been a few that aren’t exactly on the top of the dependability list

As a car enthusiast who spends some of its time watching YouTube, you may have stumbled onto Tyler Hoover’s channel – Hoovie’s Garage. The YouTuber consistently opens up with the slogan “The dumbest automotive channel on YouTube”, but we like to think it’s more of an educational/entertaining automotive channel. Mostly with regards to what we shouldn’t be buying. With this in mind, Tyler, once again, walks us through (or under) one of his many “hoopties”, as he likes to call them.

Lexus has launched the 2022 IS 500 F Sport Performance model. It is the first model in the automaker’s new ‘F Sport Performance Line’ series.

The IS moniker has been around for a long time now, but it’s still trying to find its feet as a worthy contender to the three Germans. Lexus has made a lot of mechanical enhancements to sell it as a sporty sedan, but only time will tell if a V-8 was all the IS needed to make a splash.

Quick Facts About the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV

Nothing has really changed powertrain-wise, but the new Bolt EV and EUV certainly look serious

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

It looks spectacular, is feature-rich, and comes with an electric-only range of 80 miles

Karma Automotive is back in the news, this time for the introduction of its latest vehicle called the GS-6. The GS-6 is essentially the Revero GT that the company revealed in the past, but with few significant changes. Karma plans to use the Revero moniker for a future, upmarket product.

Anyway, the GS-6 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that debuts in the “new luxury” segment; a term coined by Karma to perhaps create a new niche. The GS-6 is not priced as exorbitantly high as the previous products and starts under $100,000.
