2022 Toyota Camry Hybrid - Performance, Price and Photos

Adding a hybrid powertrain to Toyota’s popular mid-size sedan helps it to achieve best in class gas mileage

The Toyota Camry is an institution and has been around for nearly four decades. It is Toyota’s best-selling mid-size family sedan and one of the most popular cars in the United States, and for good reason. The Camry offers a great blend of style and functionality along with Toyota’s rock-solid reliability.

With the demand for cross-overs and SUVs through the roof, several automakers have dialed down on their sedan lineup and the Camry has lesser cars to compete with. With the inclusion of a hybrid powertrain, that pool shrinks even further. But why a hybrid mid-size sedan? Simple, gas mileage. With the gas current prices the way they are, the Camry hybrid will outclass most SUVs at the pumps.

This Rare, Low-Mileage Porsche 918 Spyder Will Sell For A Truckload of Money

This specific Porsche 918 Spyder even comes with the Weissach Package

The Porsche 918 Spyder was part of a hybrid hypercar triumvirate when it was unveiled in 2015. It sat alongside the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, and it opened the doors for more electrified sports cars and supercars since. Unsurprisingly, the 918 Spyder was only produced in limited quantities, and if you weren’t able to line up for one, here’s your chance to own one.

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

Will the hybrid 2-liter turbo take away the AMG’s soul?

A Mercedes AMG C-Class without a V-8 would have been considered unthinkable ten years ago. Back then, the 6.2-liter V-8, which had one of the best exhaust soundtracks since the turn of the century, was dropped in nearly every AMG model in production. This meant that the German car industry was awash with glorious rumbles, snorts, growls, and bellows from Merc’s handcrafted naturally aspirated V-8. Then, by 2016 the current-generation C-Class was in full production with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that was more efficient and powerful than the old 6.2 but lacked some noise and character.

Ferrari Has Just Shown Off Their EV and Hybrid Plans For The Next 4 years.

The Purosangue SUV will be powered by the 812 Superfast’s V-12

All You Need is Carbon Fiber and $50,000 to Make the Ferrari SF90 Better

The question is: Can you really make a car like the Ferrari SF90 better?

When Ferrari unveiled the SF90 the world was mesmerized.

So, is there any possible way to improve a car like this? While gut wants to reply with a hasty no, the guys over 1016 Industries have a different opinion. While they decided the powertrain delivered more than enough, they wanted to make the SF90 look even better.

Ferrari’s Electrification Plans: Go Big or Go home

Ferrari essentially has until 2035 to get its EV act together

It is official; electric cars are here on everyone’s minds, and they are not going anywhere unless advancements are made in hydrogen, but that is not looking like it will happen anytime soon. The final sign of this fact is going to arrive on June 16 as Ferrari will give us all the nitty-gritty details of their step into the electric supercar and super-SUV market in a press briefing.

The AMG one and GT 63 S Share More DNA Than You Think

Hopefully we see F1 tech in even more cars down the road

The Mercedes AMG Project One was first unveiled about four years ago and has been in development at least to some degree ever since. We knew it would take a while to get the 1,000 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo hybrid V-6 Formula 1 powertrain to play well on the road, but it has been a long wait. However, with the development stage being replaced with the production stage we are starting to see just how much of the Project One is being carried over to more conventional models.

2023 Mazda CX-60 Performance, Price, and Photos

Mazda’s most important model in a decade is also its most powerful vehicle yet

This is the 2023 Mazda CX-60, the Japanese automaker’s most important vehicle in a decade. Why?

Believe it or not, the combined power output from the PHEV system makes this humble crossover, the most powerful Mazda in history.

While it won’t be coming to the United States, the CX-60 debuts the brand’s intent to take on the mid-size luxury SUV segment in other markets. It does however give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming CX-70, heading our way. This crop of upcoming Mazda SUVs should serve as an alternative to premium German rivals, that currently dominate this space.

It's Starting to Sound Like BMW M and ALPINA Are Going to Clash

It’s Starting to Sound Like BMW M and ALPINA Are Going to Clash

BMW’s M division could look really different in a few years.

For nearly six decades ALPINA has been an independent company building modified BMWs. They were usually similar to the in-house M models with more power and occasionally different suspension and handling setups. However, the ALPINAs were designed with a more luxurious attitude, forgoing all-out power and speed. Now, with BMW officially bringing Alpina under its roof, the ultimate driving machine may be taking more and more steps towards luxury and customer customization.

The Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto Has Made a Hybridized Comeback - Kind of

The Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto Has Made a Hybridized Comeback - Kind of

This probably isn’t the Duetto revival you were hoping for, but it’s a good step in the right direction

Garage Italia is a Milan-based company placed at the crossroads of the fashion, design, and automotive industries. You might remember them because of some cool previous designs like the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider or the old Fiat 500 Jolly. The company’s latest creation is once again based on an older Alfa Romeo model, and it made its debut at the Milan Fashion Week.

If you don’t know the Alfa Romeo Duetto for what it is - a very cool Italian convertible - you most likely know it for being the star in the movie "The Graduate." Garage Italia’s model borrows the aesthetics and the mechanics from a 1992 Duetto – the last generation - but also inlcudes a mild hybrid system.

It should pack more power than the SF90 and deliver improved driving dynamics

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.

The Next-Gen 2025 BMW M5 Goes Hybrid, And It's A Good Thing

The Next-Gen 2025 BMW M5 Goes Hybrid, And It’s A Good Thing

Electrification means that the BMW M5 can hang onto its legendary V-8 a little bit longer

Ever since the BMW M5 was launched back in 1998 it was always defined by its driving dynamic and powerful engine. It started with a straight-six engine and continued with either V-8 or V-10, but no matter what, it always had a lot of power under the hood. The most powerful version is of course the current generation M5, with no less than 591 horses from a brutal V-8

The seventh generation M5 will take a completely different approach: it will be hybrid! That should come as no surprise to anyone as most makers are trying to electrify their lineup, and it has been the subject of speculation for a while. Now, however, BMW M Workshop Manager, Hans Rahn, has confirmed the next M5 will be a hybrid.
