We’ve Finally Spotted a Prototype of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class
The Mercedes G-Class is due for an update, and it’s set to arrive for the 2023 model year. We expected to see at least one prototype, but up until now, it’s been hiding very well. All that has changed, though, and this prototype is sporting some changes – some so important the driver was very careful about hiding them.
To start, we can spot a new front end with a revised grille. There’s a new fascia in the rear as well, however, there’s not much else to say about the exterior thanks to the camo. Oddly enough, the headlights and taillights are identical to those of the current model, which means Mercedes engineers aren’t exactly done with the development process quite yet. Interestingly, however, there are some significant changes happening inside, but we weren’t able to see them because the driver was careful to cover them up.
The facelifted Mercedes G-Class is expected to arrive for the 2023 model year, so the production model should be revealed sometime before fall of 2022.
The Ford Bronco Raptor Debuts With A 400+ Horsepower V-6 And Heavy Off-Road Upgrades
The Ford Bronco came out in 2020 and it was one of the most anticipated launches of the year. While it ticked all the boxes and seemed to be the first true-blue threat to the Jeep Wrangler, it lacked out on one thing that was a deal-breaker for many folks – a missing V-8 engine. It probably seemed like a fine decision then because the Wrangler didn’t offer one either, but Jeep played a party pooper and announced a V-8 Wrangler 392 hours before the Bronco’s debut!
Now, the company has decided to rectify that chink in its armor – to a certain extent – by coming up with a more potent V-6 engine. Ford is yet to give out all the details, but we do know that a 3.0-liter V-6 will do the duties that will produce over 400 horses. A lot of tweaks have been made to the suspension setup as well. As for the transmission, there’s no manual gearbox on offer, unfortunately. Just a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2023 Ford Bronco Raptor - Watch The Debut Right Here!
The Bronco Raptor has been in the news pretty much the day after the Bronco was unveiled. A lot of rumors and speculations were seen headlining the auto scene, but nothing was official for over a year. In September, however, Ford confirmed that the Bronco Raptor is coming in 2022. Post this announcement, one thing was sure – we would be hearing and seeing a lot more about it.
As it turns out, we have our first scoop already. A bunch of folks from ’The Bronco Nation’ were invited to see the Bronco Raptor in person and thanks to them, we have our best glimpse of the burly off-roader to date.
To add to the good news, the Ford Bronco Raptor is coming out on 24th January 2022 at 0600 EST, and you can watch the premiere right here!

The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Shows Us That Taking A Supercar Off-Roading Is Now A Reality
Lamborghini tested some uncharted waters back in 2019 when it unveiled an all-terrain supercar concept based on the Huracan called the Huracan Sterrato. Well, not exactly unchartered since the company has produced the LM002, but you get the gist. As it turns out, the folks from Sant’Agata Bolognese weren’t just flirting with the idea. Our spy photographers spotted the Huracan Sterrato in the wild, suggesting that the off-road supercar is going to production and it could come out as early as this year!
RAM 1500 TRX Takes On An A90 Supra In A 1/4 Mile Face-off
The Drag Racing and Car Stuff Channel put out yet another super video over the weekend, where a RAM 1500 TRX took on an A90 Supra over the ¼ Mile. Now, as usual, I can’t really confirm the exact specs, but as with anything that hits the drag strip, it’s unlikely that the two contenders we have here are stock. Regardless, we’ll look at the baseline figures so that we can at least have a datum to work off of.
A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works
The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.
