Jay Leno Has Nothing Bad to Say about the Tesla Model Y
The Tesla Model Y is a pretty good vehicle and slots in perfectly between the Model 3 and the Model X, although it is much closer to the Model 3. Some folks even call it the crossover version of the Model 3, given the amount of part sharing between the two. The Model Y has had positive reviews generally, but it has a few flaws, just like any other vehicle. However, Jay Leno didn’t have anything bad to say about the electric crossover. It looks like the Model Y has impressed the man who generally dislikes crossovers.

Jay Leno Meets a Plymouth Superbird: Video
A 1970 Plymouth Superbird is considered a unicorn by today’s standards. What most people don’t know is that this outrageous machine wasn’t a hot pancake back in the day. Dealers struggled to sell them because of how they looked and some even resorted to removing the nose and wing to make them look like a typical Plymouth Road Runner. But the Superbird now holds a special place in the hearts of muscle car collectors, including comedian Jeff Dunham, who happens to own one of just 58 Superbirds with a HEMI engine and a four-speed manual transmission. Of course, a car of this stature, with a celebrity owner to boot, found its way to Jay Leno’s Garage.
Jay Leno Goes Ultimate Bad Ass In The USSV Rhino GX: Video
Presence. Do you wanna be seen? Do you wanna drive around in something that can blot out the sun like it’s a solar eclipse? Then U.S. Specialty Vehicles has what you need. Say hello to the Rhino GX, a seven-foot tall, eight-foot wide, 9,600-pound, quarter-million dollar slab of America ready to roll over anything in its way. Based on the Ford Super Duty F-450, this thing is rocking custom steel body panels, composite fender flares, and custom-made forged one-piece wheels, all of which lend it a military-grade aesthetic that’s sure to turn heads. The suspension is new as well, with hydraulic components replacing the stock set-up, but the drivetrain and engine are both factory fresh with a 6.7-liter powerplant and 4WD grip. It’s also 100 percent street legal, and offers impressive opulence and space in the cabin, all of which Jay Leno gets to experience firsthand in this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
“This is great for dropping your kid off at soccer practice, if your kid’s on the prison team,” Jay starts the video. Hit play and you’ll get an in-depth look at how U.S.S.V. puts these things together, and what it’s like to bash around on the streets of Los Angeles. The video also features the Rhino XT, a modified four-door Jeep prototype that was featured in ‘The Fate of the Furious.’ Rhino is ramping up production of the XT now, blessing it with a supercharged V-6 engine, larger Toyo tires, and more of those custom forged wheels.
