10 Things a BMW M Hypercar Needs to Corner the Market
One of the best ways to showcase your technical expertise and convince buyers to buy your cars is to build a hypercar. Mercedes-AMG did it, Aston Martin too. Heck, Volkswagen AG has the best of them all - the Bugatti Veyron and the Chiron. I can only imagine that somewhere in BMW headquarters in Munchen, the board of directors and investors sat together and discussed the hypercar idea.
After all, back in 2017, when Mercedes-AMG showcased the F1 inspired Project One, BMW M boss Dirk Hacker said:
“We would like to do a standalone car, and we could do it – but today there is no requirement from the market to do it. As a company, we are more focused on future mobility than digitization than building a hypercar, to be honest, but if we came to the decision to do a super sports car, then we could do that.”
Apparently, the market still isn’t favorable for the development of the BMW hypercar, but that does not stop us from the brainstorming of what that proposed hypercar could be. I am giving you ten different things BMW hypercar needs to succeed.
Everything You Need to Know About the New 2022 Ford Maverick Pickup
America loves pickups, but with an F-150 costing up to $80,000, it’s easy to see why maybe some people would want something cheaper. Much cheaper. So keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the upcoming Ford Baby-Bronco based Maverick - a pickup that will start at just $20,000.
With less than impressive sales in one of the most profitable segments of the American vehicle market, and an ageing, 14-year old generation still on dealer lots, the Toyota Tundra is arguably due for a complete overhaul. And I’m here to tell you that the all-new and improved 2022 Tundra is closer than ever, with an estimated launch date sometime towards the end of 2021 as a 2022 model year.
Keep reading to find out all the latest information regarding the third generation Toyota Tundra, a truck that will be „dominating” soon.
Everything We Know About The Ford F-150 Raptor R V-8
2021 started with a bang for us truck lovers when Ford announced the arrival of the third-gen F-150 Raptor. What made the deal even sweet what the little disclaimer at the end of the video which said, “more to come in 2022”. Decoding this cryptic text revealed that it’s the Raptor R, which will feature a V-8 engine under the hood, as confirmed by Ford officials on Twitter soon after. Beyond this, however, there is no information available. But, using the new standard Raptor as a benchmark and a truck that will take on the Ram TRX once it arrives, we have a lot to speculate.
Everything We Know About the $25,000 Tesla EV
It wouldn’t be wrong to say what the EV market is what it is today because of Tesla. The Musk-led company has revolutionized this segment in the last decade or so. The company has got four mass-market, mainstream cars at the moment – the Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and the Model X – and others like the Cybertruck and the Roadster that are yet to arrive or are niche products.
While the S3XY range is doing very well in the market, neither of them can be called ‘affordable’ cars. In the past, Musk had made it clear that Tesla won’t be making any cheap cars, but at the Tesla Battery Day last year, he set a cat amongst the pigeons when he said that the company will build a $25,000 car. It became the talk of the town even though not much is known about it. But, here’s everything you need to know about this affordable Tesla EV.
Before we get going, do note that there is no concrete information about the $25,000 EV and most of the things are mere speculations based on the few details we already know. So, take it with a pinch of salt.
5 Game-Changing BMWs Coming in 2021
BMW is one of the most popular manufacturers out there, with a long history of producing exciting performance cars despite being a luxury brand above all else. That said, because of the ever-increasing demand for more eco-friendly vehicles even manufacturers who praise themselves for making some of the most engaging automobiles in the business, have to deviate from their main principles, for the sake of staying relevant. Some of the more recent developments experienced by the Bavarian company are perfect examples that the winds of change are upon us, and these are some of the results, we will see in 2021.
Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford F-150 Electric
It’s been a while since FoMoCo’s train-pulling PR stunt came to further hype the arrival of the all-electric Ford F-150. As Ford has been rather tight-lipped lately about its full-electric pickup truck, we thought we’d have a look at what we know up until this point and what we should expect expect from the electric F-150. Here’s what we can report for the time being.
The Coolest Features of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV
At a time when people are a lot more concerned about the environment, if you tell people you own a gas guzzler like a Hummer, they will stare at you utter disdain. But, GMC is here to change that image of the otherwise much-adored moniker. The company brought back the nameplate from the ashes and slapped it on an electric vehicle without harming its credibility of being big and bulky.
The Hummer EV is a monster and is being marketed as a supertruck. The company has finally unveiled the truck, and although it might draw a lot of polarizing opinions, there’s no denying that it comes with some rather cool features. Whether or not they’re worth the six-digit figure is a different question, but here’s a list of some of them that left us impressed:
Quick Comparison: GMC Hummer EV vs Tesla Cybertruck
Discontinued in 2010 after 18 years of the market, the Hummer nameplate returned in 2020. But this time around, it’s not a standalone brand, but a model sold under a GMC badge. The even bigger news is that it’s fully electric. Set to go into production in 2021, the truck version will go against the spectacular Tesla Cybertruck. But does it have what it takes to compete with Elon Musk’s oddly-shaped hauler? Is it powerful enough, does it have enough range, and is it actually a proper successor to the original Hummer design-wise? Let’s find out in the comparison below.
Everything We Know About The Nissan 400Z?
We will get a new Nissan Z-car. The new Nissan Z car is due for a reveal in the coming years, and some suggest we may even see it at the next Tokyo Motor Show or at NAIAS in 2019. Mind you, this information is yet to be confirmed, but we already know that Nissan is working on a replacement for the 370Z. I am telling you again - the new Nissan Z car will come. For me, this is a huge deal as I really liked the 370Z in its purest, least expensive form. Ignore my emotions from now on as I try to elaborate on what the new Nissan Z car should be. Believe me, so many rumors circulate on the Internet that it is almost impossible to separate right from wrong and truth from deception. In that regard, I am going to give you a rundown of the most logical solutions Nissan may employ for the creation of the new Z car.
Maserati Confirmed An All-Electric MC20: Here’s What We Know
Maserati just unveiled the MC20, a spiritual successor to the MC12. Unlike its predecessor, it features a twin-turbo V-6 engine instead of a naturally aspirated V-12, but it will be the company’s first flagship sports car in years and it will also go racing. More importantly, the MC20 will become available with an all-electric drivetrain. Here’s what we know about the upcoming sports EV.
10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition
Ferrari will build an SUV. I am not joking, the company made an announcement. It will be called the Ferrari Purosangue. That’s the official name of the Ferrari SUV. Ok, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri implicitly said that he does not want to hear “that word” in the same sentence with the word Ferrari. “That word” being SUV. Ok, Camilleri, I will not do it. Ever. The new Ferrari... truck… will be the most amazing piece of technology ever attempted with the “that word” layout. Luckily, we do know a thing or two about the new Purosangue.
Digression: Is the word crossover any better? Maybe, but I feel it sounds too soft for the status of a Ferrari. The Honda CR-V is a crossover for crying out loud.
The new Purosangue may take a layout similar to what we have been accustomed to with the onslaught of performance SUVs, yet the Italians promised to make it a proper thoroughbred. Incidentally (not really), Purosangue translated from Italian actually means thoroughbred. Is it just me, or the name Ferrari Thoroughbred (in English) wouldn’t sound bad at all? We have a Superfast and we like it, don’t we? Enough with the strange ideas. Purosangue it is.
Christopher Smith of Motor1 explained how to pronounce it:
“PUR-o-SAN-gue. There are four syllables, with emphasis on PUR and SAN. Phonetically speaking, start with PUR, as in a cat purring. From there just say a soft O as in oh, then SAN with a long A sound like saahn, and finish with GUE, which sounds like way but starting with a g – gway. PURR - oh - SAAHN - gway. See? It’s totally easy.”
2022 Jeep Wagoneer - Everything You Need to Know
Discontinued in 1991, after almost 30 years in production, the iconic Jeep Grand Wagoneer has been rumored to return since the late 1990s. Chrysler first confirmed the nameplate in 2011, stating that it would go into production in 2013, but the Grand Wagoneer was postponed to 2015 and to 2018.
The SUV returned into the spotlight in 2019 when spy shots revealed a full-size Jeep built on a Ram 1500 truck frame and Jeep eventually confirmed the nameplate for a 2020 revival. The SUV is scheduled to debut on September 3 and even though Jeep is still mum on details, we already known a few things about the full-size hauler.

2021 Ram Rebel TRX - Everything You Need to Know
Update 8/17/2020: The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has made it’s debut. We’re busy updating this article and our full review, but head on over to our quick facts and photo gallery to learn more about it!
The Ram Rebel is one of the sportiest trucks on the market today. It’s not just the tuners, but also the automakers building powerful and fast monsters right out of the factory. Dodge can be credited with this trend when they launched the Dodge Ram SRT-10 more than 15 years back. This truck was powered by the same V-10 found in the Dodge Viper. However, the market was not mature enough to handle it, thus sending it off the production line within three years of its inception.
Fast forward to 2016 and Dodge is Now Ram, and it revealed a concept truck called the Ram Rebel TRX. In 2018, the company said the concept was given a green signal by the corporate overlords and they will be building it. Since then, enthusiasts have been in a tizzy as to what to expect out of this beast. The only thing confirmed so far is that it will be powered by one Hell(cat) of an engine that will be driven by over 700 horses. Is there anything else? Well, here’s a list of all the things you need to know about the upcoming 2020 Ram Rebel TRX, thanks to Mopar Insiders and Allpar.
2021 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Package - Making Even the Base Bronco an Extreme Off-Roader
Ford has tried to cater to all kinds of customers with the Bronco. That probably explains why the Bronco Sport came to be – an off-roader that is equally comfortable for weekday duties. If you’ve been following the Bronco carefully, you’ll know how well it is spec’d in terms of off-roading equipment and features. However, they are available in the higher trims which are in the ballpark of $50,000.
But, even if you are looking to buy the base trim and want a Bronco that can handle harsh terrain easily, you should opt for the “Sasquatch Package” that Ford has introduced. The package includes most of the stuff you’d need to convert your bare-bones Bronco into a boulder-carver - even the base model!

Audi showed the e-tron GT conceptback in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Everything We Know About The 2021 Dodge Barracuda
Rumors about a modern Barracuda have been flying around since 2007. That’s 13 years as of 2020 and many of us have lost hope that a revival of the iconic Cuda will happen.
However, it seems that the Barracuda may indeed return for the 2021 model years as a replacement for the Dodge Challenger. And it will do so under the Dodge brand since the Plymouth marque was discontinued back in 2001. Official details about the 2021 Barracuda are still scant, but we gathered all the information there is about the modern incarnation of this muscle car legend.
