2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid "RS" Coupe

2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid "RS" Coupe

Will the hottest Porsche Cayenne get even hotter?

The internet has been buzzing with rumours about a racy Porsche Panamera “Lion” that packs between 760 and 800+ horsepower taking the Nurburgring by storm. It has been reported that the test prototype packed a boosted version of the S-E Hybrid powertrain found in the regular Panamera, while some said it relied on an ICE-only powertrain. All this chatter was immediately followed by rumors about a hotter Porsche Cayenne Turbo S-E Hybrid said to wear the “RS” badge; in fact, some outlets out there are forwarding the “GT” lettering instead, but that’s not the most relevant aspect for the moment.

What got us really interested has to do with the set of pictures sent in by our spy photographers. The photos show a camouflage-free Porsche Cayenne Coupe test prototype of sorts that wears a flashy body colour and contrasting brake calipers. What made us interest pique even more is the rear bumper/exhaust setup configuration, which sports a dual-pipe arrangement in the center unseen so far on a road-going Cayenne. Oh, and those rectangular side-positioned exhausts? They’re fake.

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

Now this is what we call a handicap-accessible vehicle!

The GMC Sierra 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins is a one-off truck that showcases custom features designed for disabled people. Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, this truck was created by Rolling Big Power, an industry leading manufacturer of aftermarket parts and Keaton “The Muscle” Hoskins from TV’s “Diesel Brothers.” It is based on the older, third-generation Sierra 3500HD Denali.

The truck was built for Jonathan Barber, who was involved in a coal-mining accident in 2017 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Fitted with a 14-inch lift suspension, this bespoke Denali truck also features a gullwing door, hydraulic chair lift, and twist-handle controls for throttle and brakes, all designed to make life easier for its disabled driver. It’s fancy on the outside and practical on the inside, but it’s also special enough to draw a lot of onlookers at the SEMA Show or other truck-specific events. In other words, it’s a handicap-accessible show rig that we don’t get to see too often.

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports

This Super Duty is the Hulk of the truck world

One of the baddest and meanest trucks to have graced this year’s SEMA Show is this Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports, a California-based aftermarket company. There is nothing to not like about this truck. It looks vintage, it has the ‘Baja’ identity, and it has the old-school persona attached to it. The Baja Forged Super Duty is an all-in-one mobile command center, workshop, and campsite that will be utilized as a chase truck for the Baja Forged Ford Ranger that was launched by the company at last year’s SEMA Show. Such is the versatility of the truck that even Ford calls this the “Swiss army knife for the modern adventurer.” Need we say anything more about it?

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

This is a proper tribute piece to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces

RAM’s penchant for rolling out special edition trucks has paved the way for the truck brand to introduce a new run of special edition models that pay tribute to the five branches of the United States military. The special edition trucks fall under the RAM 1500 Built To Serve Edition name. Each of the five armed services — Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines — will receive their own special edition treatment. It’s unclear which of the five will get rolled out first, but the specific launches will take place every three months, beginning next week when the truck brand hosts its own Veterans Day celebration on November 11.

The Mercedes-AMG G 63 Will Have a New BMW-Powered Competitor in the Land Rover Defender SVR

That’s right, a Land Rover Defender SVR is coming

Hear this out: Jaguar Land Rover is hiding a high-performance prototype based on the new Defender which will ultimately make it to production under the SVR badge. The model is currently developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division and when it finally hatches, the Defender SVR will use a 4.4-liter BMW-sourced engine in its attempt to give the Mercedes-AMG G 63 a run for its money.

Following the Ranger-Rave, Ford Has Now Announced a Custom Super Duty 2019 SEMA Lineup

Following the Ranger-Rave, Ford Has Now Announced a Custom Super Duty 2019 SEMA Lineup

With such impressive customizations, it’s only a matter of time before Ford gets treated like a big player in the accessories market

Ford recently announced its custom Ranger lineup for the 2019 SEMA. The trucks were really impressive in terms of products, but in the bigger picture, it showed that Ford is ready to get out of its comfort zone. This will play a big role for Ford moving forward because the American automaker is not known to be a mod-friendly brand as, say, Jeep or Land Rover. To further strengthen this, Ford has now revealed that it will be bringing to SEMA a series of Super Duty truck concepts as well. I was impressed a lot with the Ranger lineup, so let’s see how the Super Duty range turns out.

We’re back with more news from Volkswagenland and no, this time, they’re not related to the freshly-unveiled eight-generation Golf. In fact, they concern the Touareg. VW’s largest SUV in Europe is going to get a high-performance R version powered by a hybrid powertrain, as Volkswagen hopes to steal some thunder off the likes of Mercedes-AMG and BMW M.

2020 Nissan Titan XD

2020 Nissan Titan XD

The Japanese automaker has smoothened the rough edges overall but forgot to work on its core essence – the towing and payload prowess

Nissan recently rolled out the 2020 Titan, and the company did a decent job of making the product look fresh. Until the last decade, automakers used to drag on the same models, especially these big beasts, for as long as possible. Check out Nissan’s own Armada. But, given the changing dynamics, even SUVs and pickup trucks are being updated regularly. Now that the facelifted Titan was here, it was only a matter of time before the heavy-duty Titan XD was launched, too. Well, that time is now. Nissan officially revealed the 2020 Titan XD and the company has made some big moves for it, like dropping a few body configurations, retiring an engine, and introducing new exterior shades. Do these things matter in the heavy-duty version of the Titan?

2020 Chevrolet Traverse - Driven

2020 Chevrolet Traverse - Driven

The Chevy Traverse had an identity complex during its first 8 years of life, with the first-gen model being a weird blend of crossover and minivan with GM’s old, not-so-attractive styling inside and out. Fortunately, the 2018 model year became the host of the second-gen Traverse, and it came with a true SUV appearance that doesn’t require the hardcore (and heavy) full-size truck DNA under the metal. As the roomiest three-row SUV on the market without those full-size truck underpinnings, we’ve been wondering how the second-gen Traverse really holds up against competitors like the Ford Explorer and Mazda CX-9. Finally, after two years on the market, we finally got the chance to get behind the wheel to find out for ourselves. This is our experience with the 2020 Chevy Traverse.

Mild upgrade adds new features inside the cabin

It’s been only two years since it introduced the CX-8 crossover and Mazda already unveiled an updated version at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. As before, the CX-8, essentially a seven-seat version of the CX-5, remains limited to markets like Japan, Malaysia, China, Australia, and New Zealand and won’t come to the United States. Let’s find out what’s new.

2020 Ram 1500 Classic Mohave Sand Package

2020 Ram 1500 Classic Mohave Sand Package

An exterior shade that will make the truck stand out from the crowd

Ram sure knows how to keep its product portfolio active. Lately, a lot of our attention has been on the 2020 Ram 1500, which comes with the third-gen EcoDiesel engine and also created a record of sorts by claiming the Top Safety Pick+ award. Logically, this would mean a drop in the sales for the 2019 model. However, Ram is keeping the 2019 1500 active by launching new packages and special editions of the truck. This time, we get the new Mojave Sand Package that’s offered on the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock. The truck comes with a host of aesthetic changes to distinguish it from the standard Ram 1500. But, is it worth buying?

This is eye-opening because some of the beloved trucks out there have behaved miserably during the crash tests

Pickup trucks these are days are not only about their hauling and towing capacities; they are fast, they often come with a luxurious cabin, and are loaded to the gill with high-tech features. So, why should they lag behind in terms of safety? People use trucks today as their daily driver, and family haulers, and they are concerned about safety. Automakers have started offering safety features, but which one tops the list and which truck scrapes the bottom of the barrel?

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The SUV-coupe, five-seat version of the Volkswagen Atlas presents itself before 2020 market debut

BMW has the X6 and X4, Mercedes-Benz the GLE and GLC Coupe, Audi created the Q8, and Porsche’s Cayenne Coupe is fresh off the press. So here comes Volkswagen, trumpeting its intentions to join the SUV-coupe craze with a sloping-roof design that uses the Atlas as a starting point.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the U.S.-only Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Yes, it’s an SUV-coupe of sorts, because guess what: that’s precisely what was missing from VW’s stable, a model that belongs to the niche of a niche created to appease the buyer’s appetite for sloped-roof yet still high-riding SUVs that don’t require too much investment from the carmaker, which makes them the ultimate cash cow for whoever builds them. Obviously, the Atlas Cross Sport takes a lot after the on-sale-now VW Atlas, but as usual, there’s more than meets the eye. Let’s check it out.

Now We Have a Damn Good Reason to Say that the Volkswagen Amarok Is Better Than the Ford F-150 Raptor

Now We Have a Damn Good Reason to Say that the Volkswagen Amarok Is Better Than the Ford F-150 Raptor

Volkswagen can drag about this, err, I mean brag about this

Drag races are fun and there’s no denying that. But when you think about drag races, you seldom see trucks take a fierce stance and go up against their counterparts. However, Carwow thought that pitting four popular mid-size trucks against one another would be a good idea.

The publication decided to invite two German and two American guests to prove their mettle in a straight-line dash. The guests of honor include the likes of Mercedes X-Class, Volkswagen Amarok, Ford Ranger Raptor, and Ford F-150 Raptor. We have given out the winner already, but did Amarok have to break a sweat to take down its rivals?

5 Star Tuning Can Push Your EcoBoost-Powered 2018 Ford F-150 Beyond 500 Horsepower at the Wheels

Stuff like this makes us look at the F-150 with renewed vigor

Ford’s EcoBoost engines can be considered as a masterstroke when it comes to how they have played a big role in the company’s lineup. They are both fuel-efficient and versatile. But, are they fast and powerful? Well, the folks over at 5 Star Tuning have given it a shot and the results are quite good as the tuner took in a Ford F-150 STX with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine. With a few tweaks here and there, the tuner managed to extract enough power to blow our minds out. What if Ford hired these guys and offered tuned vehicles from the factory itself?

Soccer mom or not, you must appreciate the Dodge Grand Caravan’s extremely versatile interior. The people hauler is more often than not praised for its great gas mileage, comfortable seats, and huge cargo room. Sure, it’s not your Lamborghini Huracan, and reliability could have been better (that also depends on who you ask, to some extent), but all in all, it did the job.

2019 Ford F-150 Sidewinder by Long McArthur Ford

One heck of a package for the price it is being offered at

Although there are many aftermarket tuners in the industry who can customize your vehicles brilliantly, people are skeptical about going to them as it may void the factory warranty and who knows, maybe even mess around with insurance claims in worst case scenarios. I’m not talking about big shots like Hennessey, Roush, and the likes. It’s the other smaller, inexpensive players. But, if the mods are done at the factory or dealership level, there is less hesitation. So, here’s one such Ford dealership which goes by the name of Long McArthur. The dealership is offering a ‘Sidewinder’ package on the Ford F-150, and from our initial impressions, this is an absolute steal-deal.

The two rhino-SUVs on steroids also get Competition variants

We knew it was bound to happen, and you knew it too. BMW has finally spilled the beans on its range-topping performance SUVs - or SAV and SAC if we are to stay true to the BMW jargon. The 2020 X5 M and 2020 X6 M mark the third-generation of high-riding M-badged models by borrowing the M5’s 591-horsepower V-8 engine to go with a long list of goodies and upgrades, so let’s check them out.

2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition

As mean as the Rebel, but with the luxury features of the top-trim model

The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition is a limited-edition version of the latest-generation Ram 1500 pickup truck. Based on the range-topping Limited trim, the Black Edition is exactly what the name suggests. It’s painted black, it features body-colored bumpers, and replaces all chrome trim with black inserts. It’s probably the meanest Ram 1500 you can buy aside from the Rebel. What’s more, it combines both sportiness and luxury, something the Rebel trim can’t offer. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2020 Nissan Titan

2020 Nissan Titan

A few changes and tweaks make the Titan a better all-rounded package!

Pickups and SUVs used to carry the same design for decades together because no one bought them for their looks, really. But thanks to the changing times, automakers tend to refresh their big, butch vehicles as frequently as hatches and sedans. Nissan Titan is the latest example. The pickup truck’s current-gen was launched three years back, and the company has already rolled out the facelift. That’s what competition can do to you. The Titan comes with a few changes to the aesthetics and the drivetrain. Can you believe this is the same company that is running the same generation of the Patrol/Armada since 2010?
