2021 Volvo V60 Cross Country - Driven

2021 Volvo V60 Cross Country - Driven

Can a station wagon survive an SUV world?

It’s almost ancient history now, but the Volvo station wagon spent years as a staple of upscale families. Luxurious without being ostentatious, known for its safety, and able to carry plenty of cargo, it was a fixture at field hockey practice — at least until SUVs took over that mantle. Even in the Volvo lineup, the station wagon is an afterthought next to the XC40, XC60, and XC90 crossovers.

But is that because SUVs are better than station wagons? Or are wagons unfairly overlooked and deserving of more attention? Volvo does still sell two wagons: the compact V60 and the midsize V90. We spent a week with the Volvo V60 Cross Country to see what a Volvo station wagon has to offer in this decade.

Hennessey Introduces a 1,000-Horsepower Ram 1500 TRX That Takes Just 3.2 Seconds to 60 MPH

Hennessey Introduces a 1,000-Horsepower Ram 1500 TRX That Takes Just 3.2 Seconds to 60 MPH

The production will be limited to 200 examples

Back in September 2020, Hennessey announced the introduction of a six-wheeled iteration of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX called the Mammoth 6x6. The super-exclusive truck was limited to just three examples and was priced at half-a-million bucks a pop. Even though it sounded super exciting, a more practical version of the truck would’ve been a better option. It looks like Hennessey has answered our wishes.

The aftermarket company’s latest project is a 1,000+ Horsepower ‘four-wheeled’ version of the Ram 1500 TRX. It comes with a host of other mechanical additions and features. Hennessey has also announced that it will build 200 examples of this truck.

This Truck Is a 2014 Ford Raptor With a 1979 Face And It's Retrolicious

This Truck Is a 2014 Ford Raptor With a 1979 Face And It’s Retrolicious

It looks old-school but comes with all the modern-day shenanigans and an engine that makes almost 600 horsepower!

Restomods have a special place in our hearts. But, there are two sets of people here – one who want it to be as old-school and stock as the original, and the other who prefer the retro aesthetics and modern features. For the latter, we’ve got an amazing build right here by Sweet Brothers Restomods. On the outside, you see a truck from the 70s, but everything else about it is from the 21st century. A perfect blend of both worlds, innit?

The Ford Bronco Was Apparently Raised By Goats And We're Not A Fan

The Ford Bronco Was Apparently Raised By Goats And We’re Not A Fan

This new commercial for the Ford Bronco is so lame that it belongs in 2020

As far as origin stories go, the Ford Bronco’s genesis is as weird as it gets. No doubt, Ford wants to integrate the SUV’s “Goes Over All Terran” (G.O.A.T.) driving models into this commercial, and it did just that by adding goats into the tale of the Bronco’s birth. The ad is strange in so many ways that you might as well believe it if you’re the type to believe that such a scenario — a young, injured colt getting raised by goats — actually happens in this fair world of ours. But it is a commercial, and every commercial’s goal is to get people to talk about it. So, in a roundabout way, Ford’s “Raised by Goats” commercial for the Bronco succeeds in its intended objective. We’re talking about it, albeit with plenty of raised eyebrows and confused looks.

Hyundai Could Put BMW and Mercedes in Check With the Palisade N Line

Hyundai Could Put BMW and Mercedes in Check With the Palisade N Line

A Hyundai Palisade N might not be around the corner, but the N Line version is coming soon

When Hyundai redesigned the Santa Fe for the 2019 model year, it decided that a long-wheelbase version will no longer be sold in the U.S. But it came up with a replacement, the Palisade, which arrived in North America for the 2020 model year.

Also a midsize SUV, the Palisade is 7.6 inches longer and features a 5.3-inch longer wheelbase, enabling Hyundai to go after the highly popular BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. But the Korean brand needs a bit more to tackle the German competition and a Palisade N Line model might be it. Will Hyundai offer one?

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Bigger Than Ever With Impressive Tech

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Bigger Than Ever With Impressive Tech

The Grand Cherokee can now be had with a third-row, additional tech, and impressive off-road equipment

Jeep has been milking the Grand Cherokee moniker for over 27 years now and it is still one of the top-selling models for the automaker. The SUV is showing its age in the current iteration, but that doesn’t mean the demand is going low. So, instead, Jeep decided to tap into another niche with the same formula. Called the Grand Cherokee L, this SUV rides on an extended platform and has a third row of seats.

Ford's Late Delivery of the 2021 Bronco Is Sending Would-Be Customers to Jeep

Ford’s Late Delivery of the 2021 Bronco Is Sending Would-Be Customers to Jeep

The Bronco is still a long time away and there’s no way of being sure that there won’t be any more hold-ups

Ford unveiled the 2021 Bronco in a grand fashion and received an overwhelming response. There was a lot of pressure on the automaker to create a product that was good enough to go up against the very well established Jeep Wrangler. Ford managed to pull it off and people loved the Bronco - the 190,000 reservations it received prove so. But, with constant delays, it looks like people are losing patience and Ford is suddenly losing customers to none other than Jeep.

Toyota Is Killing Off the Land Cruiser After 2021

Toyota Is Killing Off the Land Cruiser After 2021

The iconic Toyota Land Cruiser is being axed in the U.S., but it may return as a more modern and luxurious SUV

Toyota will discontinue the big Land Cruiser SUV in the United States after 2021. That’s the word from Road&Track, the outlet that received confirmation from Toyota that 2021 will be last year for its range-topping hauler in North America. The Japanese automaker will reportedly return with an all-new Land Cruiser that’s more modern and luxurious, but there’s no specific timeline for that.

Watch The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Take On The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport

Watch The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Take On The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport

Has the TRX finally found its match in the 770-Horsepower Shelby F-150?

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX arrived as the “quickest, fastest, and the most powerful mass-produced truck in the world” earlier this year. It took a few months to settle in and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the TRX has been a bully so far. It has decimated the trucks it has faced, especially its primary rival, the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, it looks like it has finally met a bigger badass; on paper, at least.

The folks at Throttle House brought the Ram TRX face-to-face with the Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport – a 770-Horsepower beast that might be the one to take down the former. Can it beat the Ram in straight-line races?

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ford F-150

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ford F-150

Is the 14th generation of the truck better than the model it replaces?

Ford was preparing for the 2021 F-150’s launch for quite some time. The hype surrounding the world’s best-selling truck was immense, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and Ford had to settle for a rather subdued launch.

Still, people had their eyes glued to the screens to watch the live steam of the truck’s debut and to see what’s new this time around. The 14th generation needed to be a step up in all the aspects given how Ram and Chevy have upped the ante in the last few years. There are improvements in most of the departments, however, there are also a few things that we would’ve liked better. So, here’s a guide that compares the 2021 F-150 to its predecessor in terms of exterior, interior, tech features, engine options, towing capabilities, and price.

2021 Ford F-150 by PaxPower

2021 Ford F-150 by PaxPower

The Houston-based aftermarket company can turn your 2021 F-150 into a big, beefy, powerful beast

Ford revealed the 2021 F-150 a few months back and it seems like a complete package. The exterior feels fresh and the interior comes with new features like Max Recline Seats and Interior Work Surface. When it comes to the drivetrains, Ford even introduced a new hybrid mill for the 2021 model along with a power boost on some of the existing engines.

One thing missing, however, was the Raptor version of the truck. Ford is still working on it and hasn’t introduced the 2021 F-150 Raptor, but just like the Bronco and the story of the missing V-8 engine, PaxPower has swooped in to capitalize on the opportunity.

PaxPower has introduced a few packages for the 2021 model year F-150 that come with bigger tires, heavy-duty steel bumpers, and a massive power boost that makes it more powerful than the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.

A Ford F-150 Raptor Isn't Really A Raptor Until It Has Tank Tracks

A Ford F-150 Raptor Isn’t Really A Raptor Until It Has Tank Tracks

Every truck is a beast until one with tank tracks arrives

The immense mod potential in a vehicle is not limited to just hatches and sedans; even pickup trucks can be modified and customized to a crazy extent. Take Westen Champlin for instance. Instead of upgrading the tires to a bigger or a different set, he got some new shoes altogether. Champlin has fitted tank tracks on his Ford F-150 Raptor and it has become a beast that can conquer just about any terrain. Were we doing Raptor the wrong way until now?

This Dyno Video Proves That Ford's New 7.3-Liter V-8 Deserves the "Godzilla" Name

This Dyno Video Proves That Ford’s New 7.3-Liter V-8 Deserves the "Godzilla" Name

This engine peaked at over 1,100 horses with minimal modifications

Ford’s Godzilla engine needs no introduction. The automaker introduced this in the Super Duty truck series not too long ago. This V-8 pushrod displaces 7.3 liters and makes 430 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque. But, it looks like the engine is a lot more capable than its rather subtle state of tune in the production engine form.

Ever since the company started offering it as a crate engine, builders have been trying to extract every ounce of power from it. Merkel Racing Engines decided to do the same, and with minimal mods, they were able to achieve four-digit power figures. Is this engine a beast or what?
