LEAKED: 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Will Come With These Off-Road Tricks

This is also what the new Maverick Tremor looks like

There’s no denying the popularity of the Ford Maverick. After all, it’s been quite a while since we last saw a truck that was affordable and easy to drive due to its compact size. But, for a pickup truck, what the Maverick lacked was an off-road-oriented model, at least until now. Rumors and even spy shots of a Ford Maverick Tremor have been circulating the web, but this is the first time that we’ll be finding out what upgrades the Tremor variant will receive.

Mercedes-AMG G63 4x4 Squared - The Ultimate Factory Monster Truck

Mercedes-AMG G63 4x4 Squared - The Ultimate Factory Monster Truck

Mercedes created an unholy hybrid between a tank and a sports car, in the form of the G63 AMG 4x4 Squared

The Mercedes G-Class has been one of the most distinctive vehicles ever made. Like the Land Rover Defender and Hummer H1, the G-Class was originally developed as a light, military transport vehicle. While the model, also known as Gelandewagen, can trace its roots back to the 1970s, the model has evolved over the years, with many special versions of the boxy off-roader. Now, there is a new version for 2023 and it looks like, this time, Mercedes has made the ultimate factory monster truck.

10 Most Noteworthy Features of the Mazda CX-50

10 Most Noteworthy Features of the Mazda CX-50

The CX-50 could be the secret ingredient that makes Mazda a force to reckon with

Mazda has been on a revamping spree lately, with a lot of changes happening within the organization. This has to do with its missions, visions, and how it is trying to position itself in the market. Some of these might seem a little weird from the financial and future standpoint, like moving a step up and targeting premium brands, or launching a new inline-six, rear-wheel-drive platform, or refusing to give up on the MX-5’s recipe even if that means going against the regulations in place. But, it has also been making some bold calls that will surely draw volumes for the brand, like the introduction of the CX-50.

The CX-50 was rumored to be the CX-5’s replacement, but Mazda plans on retaining them both in its portfolio for the time being. You can argue that the CX-50’s sales will cannibalize the CX-5’s, but what’s the harm if the customer is staying in the same showroom, right? Mazda has big plans for the CX-50, including sales figures that top 150,000 examples every year in the U.S. The SUV will also be fully electrified in the future. That said, is the CX-50 a real threat to the other players in the segment? Well, it sure is, and here are 10 noteworthy features that make the CX-50 a strong contender in the overcrowded segment.

Chevy Won't Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It's Too Hard

Chevy Won’t Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It’s Too Hard

It is just not cost-effective, but Chevy has Ford on the ropes in other areas.

Ford has offered a High-performance Raptor variant of the F-150 pickup truck to one degree or another since 2010. However, Chevrolet, or General Motors as a whole for that matter, has never had a direct rival to the Raptor. But why? General Motors has had the goal of beating Ford towards the top of its priority list since the 1960s. It is the whole reason the Camaro even exists in the first place. The main reason behind the lack of a high-performance Silverado, however, comes down to a simple business claim.

Video: Supercar Blondie Checks Out the World’s Only Off-Road Mercedes-Maybach

It features a lot of cool, unique, hidden elements that would usually never be associated with a Maybach badge

Back in December 2021, Mercedes announced the first details on the Project Maybach - a unique concept car designed in collaboration with Virgil Abloh. The debut came less than a month after Virgil Abloh’s death, so the details on the concept were very limited. More details on the concept were revealed at the beginning of May 2022, during the latest Design Essentials event, but nothing too in-depth. And this is where Supercar Blondie comes to the rescue with a super-detailed video!

The Ford Bronco Raptor Gives "Built Wild" A Whole New Meaning

The Ford Bronco Raptor finally becomes the off-road devil it was always meant to be

The return of the Ford Bronco name quickly paved the way for various interpretations of the retro-futuristic SUV. Last year, Ford unveiled the future of Built Wild by introducing a short-wheelbase Bronco for the 4600 stock class, which was a throwback to the 1969 Bronco 1000 Baja. Now, Ford Performance took Built Wild to the next level, with a more utilitarian version, based on the four-door Bronco that’s even more extreme.
