Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969

Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969

A crazy, mid-engine Ford Mustang BOSS 429 existed and it almost went into production back in 1969

Performance versions of the Ford Mustang have always been sought-after, by collectors. We have models like the original Shelby GT350 R, Shelby GT500, or BOSS 302, but for many, the top of the cherry, the big daddy, is considered to be the BOSS 429. But for all its performance credentials, the BOSS 429 had weight-distribution issues, which is why, in 1969, Ford decided to experiment with a mid-engine version of the BOSS 429, dubbed the LID Mustang.

It seems Mullen Five wants to be the more sophisticated and luxurious EV, Tesla never managed to be. But will it succeed?

2021 Ferrari Roma Fuego By DMC

2021 Ferrari Roma Fuego By DMC

An extra 86 horsepower and a carbon-fiber body kit are what the doctor prescribed

When Ferrari launched the Roma back in 2019 we were impressed by its looks. The small front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer based on the Portofino looked like no other Ferrari in the lineup and was ready to take on the competition. If you ask us, the Roma is a supercar that needs no improvement. But of course, there are people out there who do not agree. This is the case with the German tuner DMC who now only improved the looks of the Roma, but also found a way to put more power under the hood.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is the SUV’s hybrid trim and also a preview of the electrified future

In September 2021, Jeep debuted the 2022 Grand Cherokee, which happens to be the fifth-gen of the long-running SUV. It marks the introduction of a whole lot of things. The 2022 Grand Cherokee rides on a new platform, comes with exterior and interior upgrades, and features a lot of new off-road tech as well. However, there was something else that stole all the limelight – the 4xe model. Jeep launched the mid-size SUV with a hybrid engine, too, which will be sold as the Grand Cherokee 4xe. This makes it the second 4xe model in the company’s lineup after the Wrangler 4xe.

Having a plethora of pixel artists that showcase their visions of future cars is tremendous. This is especially true for classic cars that need to have a modern-day successor.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S - Driven

The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S comes with a 600+ Horsepower V-8 engine, intimidating looks, and loads of features inside the cabin

Coupe versions of SUVs have been quite a hit in the U.S. in the recent years. Automakers are coming up with the sloping roofline versions of the mid-size and full-size SUVs and they are selling pretty well. Such is the demand that you can now have them even in the sportiest and the most luxurious avatar. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S is a strong example of the same. It comes with a V-8 mill that puts out over 600 horsepower, is luxurious on the inside, and is loaded to the gills in terms of features. It faces stiff competition from the likes of the BMW X6 M and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo – is it any better than its German counterparts?

2022 Hyundai Tucson - Driven

2022 Hyundai Tucson - Driven

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson has a daring design, but it’s the practicality and comfortable cabin that will win you over

Hyundai revealed the Vision T concept at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show with a promise that it would loan at least some of its DNA to the next-generation Tucson. As a very bold concept, it didn’t seem likely that much of its design would make it to production, but here we are looking at the 2022 Hyundai Tucson and, sure enough, it has a daring new design akin to that of the concept that previewed it. The new entry-level Tucson has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is derived from the Sonata, but a Hybrid and PHEV model is also available. The Tucson comes fairly well equipped even in base trim, but it’s the comfort, practicality, and driving dynamics that will really wow you. The Tucson has an uphill battle in a crowded segment, with its main competitors including the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and even the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Audi resurrected its luxury brand name, Horch, with the introduction of the ultra-lux A8 L and the A8 L Horch will be a China-exclusive model, as the market has more cravings for long-wheelbase luxury sedans. It will go head-to-head with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class which has been the German-marque of ultra-luxury. Does the A8 L Horch have what it takes?

2022 Dodge Durango

2022 Dodge Durango

An aging monster living on borrowed time but still a decent choice on an overcrowded market

Dodge’s muscle SUV is in its eleventh year of production and it will probably be the last before it gets a new generation. The changelog happens to be with the base SXT getting seven seats as standard along with blindspot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The brand decided to ax the SRT Hellcat trim with the beastly 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8, which is a bit of shame.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

If your heart says S-Class but your pocket says no, then the E-Class would be perfect for you.

We love how the E-Class has been one of the benchmarks in the mid-size luxury sedan segment besides the 5 Series and the A6. It is still in its fifth generation and in that regard, Mercedes has given a facelift with updated looks and a lot of advanced electronics. The 2022 model year pretty much has all the features with fewer additions making the E-Class a complete no-brainer in terms of recommendations. So should you consider the E-Class or just go with other options from BMW and Audi? Let’s uncover the facts, shall we?

2022 Subaru WRX S4

2022 Subaru WRX S4

The Subaru WRX S4 is a collection of odd decisions; will its quirkiness secure it a place in the compact sedan market or will it wither and die like the Evo?

With the death of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, many started to fat-shame the Subaru STI. With the latest generation recently unveiled, many hope that the Japanese, rally-inspired sedan will redeem itself. And while officially, a full-on STI model is yet to arrive, the recently unveiled, Japan-only WRX S4, is a good sign that this may happen soon.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door - Driven

Is the AMG GT 4-Door just a Mercedes CLS on Steroids or is it a true, four-door sports car?

Five years into its lifecycle, and the AMG GT sports car has grown into its own dedicated lineup that includes a convertible and the car you see here – a sedan that Mercedes markets as a four-door… ahem… 4-door coupe. This specific model blends the sporty essence of the coupe with the comfort, practicality, and family friendliness of a traditional sedan. We got to spend an entire week with the AMG GT53 – the middleman between the new GT43 and the GT63 (and GT63 S) to see just what it’s like to live with the sportiest four-door car Mercedes makes.

742 horsepower and a unique interior is what the CLS 63S needed as a last hooray!

Mercedes’ need to electrify its entire lineup killed a lot of cool cars, including the CLS 63 S AMG Shooting Brake. Eduard Pogea of Pogea Racing wanted to give special attention to this car and created his own project based on the CLS 63S. The car was built especially for him, so do not expect to see this package available for order.

2021 Ford F-250 - Driven

The F-250 Super Duty is a tough truck that’s packed with all the bells and whistles one can ask for

The Ford F-Series can be given the tag of ‘The Truck of America’ without a doubt. The F-Series has been the best-selling range for close to five consecutive decades. Although the F-150 gets the major chunk of the volume for Ford, there are many other heavy-duty models in the range that have been ruling the respective segments. We recently laid our hands on the 2021 F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab. This Limited trim F-250 featured a four-wheel-drive system and came with the V-8 diesel mill that puts out a four-digit torque figure! Read on to know more about it.

2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R

If hot hatches are not on your priority list then this performance crossover surely will be

The German automobile conglomerate known as VAG has announced their most popular crossover globally, the T-Roc, with a facelift, and while the facelift brings a lot of changes to the overall design, it adds a lot of features too. The R variant of the T-Roc, however is majorly unchanged, especially in the powertrain department. But it is no slow bugger at all! So, how does it square up for the 2022 model year?

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

Not as powerful as the previous Johann Abt Signature Edition, but still a lot of power for a station wagon

In June 2021 ABT was presenting the ‘Johann Abt Signature Edition’” - a model based on the Audi RS6 Avant built to commemorate the company’s 125th anniversary. It was limited to only 64 units, and, because of its 790 horsepower under the hood, it enjoyed huge success. Actually, it was sold out in no time.

At the customers’ request, ABT is offering a successor for it: the RS6-S. The new model was launched at the same time as the RSQ8-S and will be available starting January 2022.

2023 BMW X1 M35i

2023 BMW X1 M35i

It will get a more powerful engine and a sportier look, but will it actually replace an M car?

The current generation X1 was launched back in 2015 and there’s no secret that it was never a very successful car. No wonder that BMW is preparing big updates for the next model set to arrive in 2022. In a recent press release, the company confirmed that the next X1 will be offered with "both a combustion engine and a fully-electric drivetrain."

The model will also receive the same treatment as the recently launched 1-Series and 2-Series: An X1 M35i version that will pretty much replace the usual M version you get with cars like the X3 and the X4.
