2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition
The Ford Explorer proudly wears the “America’s all-time best-selling SUV” tag, and the automaker has found another way to pump up the sales. Ford has added a new trim to the lineup – the King Ranch – to further bolster the mid-level card within the Explorer’s lineup. It comes with a decent load of tech features along with leather and wood elements inside the cabin to bring out the “authenticity of the iconic Texas ranch”.
1990 Mercedes 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company
The G-Wagen started life being a military truck and was later offered to us civilians as a hardcore off-roader that was matched by vehicles like the Land Rover and the Land Cruiser. The G-Wagen that we know today is fast and powerful, but back in its early days, it was brute and tough. Expedition Motor Company got hold of a 1990 250GD and restored it to perfection. As the company puts it, this is the story of how a rough ex-military war machine becomes a work of art.
2022 Land Rover Defender Debuts With A V-8 Engine
Land Rover resurrected the Defender moniker in a brand new avatar in 2019 after a three-year hiatus. It didn’t look as rugged and boxy as its predecessor, but it came loaded to the brim in terms of features and gizmos. Although it had everything that one would want from a premium off-roader, there was one glaring omission – the V-8 engine. Perhaps Land Rover was just testing waters when it launched the new Defender and wanted to keep something for later, or realized that the market is too competitive.
Either way, the good news is that the 2022 Defender has been introduced with eight-cylinders under the hood. Apart from this, it also comes with a few other tweaks here and there that have smoothened out some wrinkles.
Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We’re Not So Sure
Ever since EVs have started popping up like mushrooms, a lot of car enthusiasts have deemed them unholy, soulless, and boring to drive. However, there’s another side to it, as demonstrated in this video from the channel Seen Through Glass. The channel is actually quite fun, since it showcases expensive cars and supercars in a more entertaining way, sometimes even using them not how they were intended. This gives us a chance to get answers to questions we never thought we’d be asking. For example, can an all-electric Porsche Taycan drift?
Koenigsegg is a revolutionary automaker that has been pushing the threshold of engineering with every new car of theirs. Be it the Koenigsegg CCR that humbled the legendary McLaren F1 or the Koenigsegg One:1, the world’s first megacar that had an impressive power to weight ratio of 1:1. The future also looks quite thrilling with the Koenigsegg Jesko, a 1,600-horsepower machine that has the making to surpass the 300 mph mark!
Revolutionary engineering technologies have been at the forefront for Koenigsegg. Their latest ground-breaking feat comes in an ironically small package and is aptly named the Tiny Friendly Giant - the world’s most powerful 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 1700 horsepower and a monstrous 2,581 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses the magical Freevalve technology which makes all of these mind-boggling numbers possible and comes packed in the Koenigsegg Gemera - their very first megacar with four seats.
The 2022 Mercedes C-Class Is Bringing S-Class Tech To The Middle Class
The C-Class is to Mercedes-Benz what the 3 Series is to BMW. That is best demonstrated by the amount of tech Stuttgart poured into the new C-Class via the S-Class flagship. Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is expected to hit U.S. showrooms in early 2022.
Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?
Karma Automotive is back in the news, this time for the introduction of its latest vehicle called the GS-6. The GS-6 is essentially the Revero GT that the company revealed in the past, but with few significant changes. Karma plans to use the Revero moniker for a future, upmarket product.
Anyway, the GS-6 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that debuts in the “new luxury” segment; a term coined by Karma to perhaps create a new niche. The GS-6 is not priced as exorbitantly high as the previous products and starts under $100,000.
2021 Ford Ranger By Roush Performance
Ford Ranger is a capable midsize truck with a lot of potential for off-road and performance-oriented mods. Ford has denied us the pleasure of the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. market, but it has been a boon to the aftermarket companies who are filling this vacuum with their respective iterations. The latest one to do so is Roush Performance. Roush has taken the 2021 Ranger under its wing and turned it into an off-road beast.
Five supercars, with a total power output of 5.415 horsepower, are here. I am sure that you simply do not know enough about them. Modern supercars and hypercars you have probably never heard of are quite numerous actually. Apart from these, I could have also listed the Rezvani Beast, the Trion Nemesis RR, the Apollo Arrow, the Arash AF10, the Devel Sixteen, and the Arrinera Hussarya, among others. But what is the point as many of these will simply cease to exist as time plays its dirty game and erases them from history. Yet, the five I chose may stick around a bit longer than expected.
2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon
While the station wagon may have been a big hit in the United States long ago, today, out of all the cars sold on the U.S. market, only a handful are offered in the wagon body style. Of course, you have mainstays like the Subaru Outback, Audi A4 Allroad, and the Volvo V90 Cross Country and there are a few more obscure models like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo and soon to be forever gone Jaguar XF Sportbrake. A few others are out there too, like the car you see here, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon – a go-fast wagon that can easily make you forget that you’re an SUV-loving American living smack dab in the middle of North America. We recently spend a week with the AMG E63 S to see if it really was a strong, sexy alternative to the many, many SUVs on the market, and you’ll be surprised what we’ve learned.
2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT
ABT is back with another Audi build, this time for the SQ7. The automaker recently ditched the diesel engine from this vehicle and dropped an even more powerful V-8 gasoline mill under the hood. In the standard form, the SUV comes with 500+ horses, which is already on the higher end. So, ABT decided to give this bit a skip for this build and went ahead with making changes to the interior and the exterior. The aesthetic changes are significant and make the already-hot SQ7 even hotter.
2022 BMW iX
BMW revealed an interesting concept called the iNEXT at the 2018 Paris Auto Show. This was the time when the automaker also introduced us to the huge kidney grille. Who knew it would spread like a virus within the portfolio with many of them boasting it on their faces in the years to come?
Anyway, the iNEXT was soon renamed to iX, and BMW said that it will be roughly the size of the X5. But unlike the iX3, which is essentially the electric version of the standard X3, the iX will be much more. For starters, it’s based on a completely new platform that will underpin the future electric models, too.
