New 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Got Us Dreaming

New 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Got Us Dreaming

It’s not just the overall quality, but the rad body kit that caught our eye

We’re expecting a new-generation Ford F-150 pickup truck to make a debut this year as a 2021 model, after 2019 taught us that FoMoCo sent a full fleet of pre-production prototypes out in the wild for testing purposes.

While the test mules didn’t exactly throw a lot of light onto the new F-150 topic, we spotted a new mesh grille design with a single cross-bar splitting it in half horizontally. There’s also talk about a Raptor-badged 2021 F-150 and it’s this one that led to one particular pixel manipulator coming up with his vision of an incoming F-150 Raptor.

The 2020 Land Rover Defender Takes a Bashing In James Bond No Time To Die Rehearsals

The 2020 Land Rover Defender Takes a Bashing In James Bond No Time To Die Rehearsals

And by bashing we mean hitting trees, drifting, and performing crazy jumps

We knew for some time that the new 2020 Land Rover Defender will play a big role in the upcoming No Time to Die 007 movie, but the only proof we had was an all-black prototype photographed on the set.

This time around, Land Rover provides a glimpse into what we should expect from the movie when it comes to the Defender’s part, and boy, you won’t be disappointed, we can tell you that much.

2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20

2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20

This is Jeep’s way to introduce new Mopar products for the Wrangler

It won’t be wrong to say that the Jeep Wrangler is a cult of sorts when it comes to customizing a vehicle. The Wrangler is one of the most customizable vehicles not just with aftermarket accessories, but also thanks to the rich directory of the in-house guide, Mopar.

The Wrangler comes with so many optional accessories and packages that it might leave you scratching your head. To help you with this conundrum, Jeep decided to customize the Wrangler in-house with accessories and call it the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20. It was showcased at the Chicago Auto Show and it did grab a fair bit of attention. Looks pretty sweet, doesn’t it?

Ken Block Lets It Rip in the Extreme E Electric Race Car

Ken Block Lets It Rip in the Extreme E Electric Race Car

Electric Gymkhana, anyone?

One of the stars featured in this video needs no introduction. That’s Mr. Ken Block, the man who made Gymkhana and Climbkhana famous. The other is the Extreme E all-electric race car, a new-age speed monster that, in all honesty, needs a lot more attention than it’s currently getting.

You see, electric car racing is like a toddler. You’ve got Formula E leading the pack, of course, but there’s a whole lot of room for other disciplines to grown and fully embrace electrification and lineup battery-powered cars in various racing mediums. Alejandro Agag, the man who founded the Extreme E series, came up with a prototype that would support the competition and the spec sheet is nothing short of impressive, as Ken Block found out.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xtreme-Trail Rated

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xtreme-Trail Rated Is The Yellow You Need To Bust Your Blues

If you peep into the Mopar directory, you will see numerous packages and accessories for almost all the products owned by FCA. These packages are hugely popular with the SUV and truck owners.

Recently, it was revealed that a Wrangler owner spends an average of $800 on additional stuff from the factory itself when buying the vehicle. Jeep decided to capitalize on this even more and came up with a special edition for the Wrangler called Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xtreme-Trail Rated.

Essentially, it is a culmination of a few packages that Jeep already has to offer along with a new yellow body paint. But, to maintain exclusivity, the company has capped the production to just 100 examples. Also, it will be available only in Mexico! Por qué harías eso, Jeep?

The 2021 Ford Bronco Might Debut Sooner Than Expected

The 2021 Ford Bronco Might Debut Sooner Than Expected

Funny, we thought the Detroit Auto Show would be the ideal venue…

A new report as surfaced that the 2021 Ford Bronco will actually debut in April of 2020 at the New York Auto Show. During the debut, we’ll apparently get to see the two- and four-door versions of the revived SUV with the Bronco pickup and Bronco Sport (otherwise known as the “Baby Bronco”) set to debut sometime later. Does the report hold any merit or is someone playing with our emotions?

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

Forget about the Urus drifting on sand, this is a supercar designed to love mud

Remember the Zarooq Sand Racer? You don’t? Well, that’s no biggie, because it died at some point a couple of years ago, but now it’s back under a different name, with a polished attitude.

The Zarooq Sand Racer was supposed to open a new niche, that of off-road supercars. It packed a V-6 good for 300 horsepower and looked like a hybrid between a Dakar rally car and an exotic, but was rather short-lived. This is where the Laffite G-Tec X-Road comes to pick up where the Sand Racer left off.

Video: Would You Drive This Six-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler in the U.S.?

Video: Would You Drive This Six-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler in the U.S.?

It’s not just about the six wheels; it also features a right-hand-drive configuration and is converted into a pickup truck

When you talk about a beast on six wheels, the sight of Richard Hammond driving a G63 on the sand dunes around Dubai comes to mind. But here’s one other example, and perhaps, a poor man’s Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6.

A 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been converted from an SUV to a pickup truck, and from a four-wheel config to a six-wheel one. YouTuber Doug DeMuro got his hands on it and here’s what it is all about.

What If the New Ford Bronco Looked Like This?

What If the New Ford Bronco Looked Like This?

We think this is pretty much the 2020 Ford Bronco’s final design

2020 is the year that will finally give us the new Ford Bronco, after countless rumors and information leaks that preceded Ford’s decision to revive the moniker it killed in 1996.

Renderings of the 2020 Ford Bronco have been popping up on the internets with regularity, but none of them match the accuracy of a particular set concocted and improved by Bronco6g’s member TopRecon.

The Suzuki Jimny Squares Off With the Mercedes G-Class in an Epic Off-Road Challenge

The Suzuki Jimny Squares Off With the Mercedes G-Class in an Epic Off-Road Challenge

Although the two are incomparable, the Jimny is also quite engaging and fun to drive

The Suzuki Jimny has been considered as the common man’s Mercedes G-Class for a very long time now. Other than the boxy looks and off-road abilities, these two cars are completely different from each other.

While the G-Class is a legend in its own right, the little Japanese SUV has been winning hearts all over the world for its quirky, almost cute looks. Although a lot of parallels are drawn between the two, have you ever thought about what it would be like to pit them against each other? The guys at Motor1 Italia decided to take up the challenge and see who the off-road king really is.

Here's What the 2021 Ford Bronco Could Look Like if It Was Inspired More By the Original

Here’s What the 2021 Ford Bronco Could Look Like if It Was Inspired More By the Original

Unlike the song, this is a direct reference to the summer of ’69

The hype surrounding the 2021 Ford Bronco was suppressed for a bit when the Cybertruck was launched. But, now that the Cybertruck has become old news, the Bronco is back to being one of the industry’s most awaited vehicles, keeping everybody on their toes but with no launch in sight at this point.

However, enthusiasts and rendering artists are back to working on interpretations of what the SUV could look like, and here’s one such stab at what is perhaps the closest we’ve seen yet to the original Bronco.

Watch The Mercedes-AMG G63 Go Up Against The Range Rover Sport SVR in a Tug-of-War Battle

Watch The Mercedes-AMG G63 Go Up Against The Range Rover Sport SVR in a Tug-of-War Battle

The result will leave you befuddled!

It’s time to move on from the Cybertruck versus Ford F-150 tug-of-war duel. Unlike that war with an anti-climax, here’s one that will actually give you a closure.

The folks at Carwow brought along two unlikely superior SUVs in a battle of tug-of-war to determine who is tougher one. One on side, we have the iconic Mercedes-AMG G-Wagen, and on the other side there’s the Range Rover Sport SVR. While the latter is a tough-looking new breed, does it have what it takes to trump Mercedes-Benz’s raw-power, rich-heritage SUV?

Lego's Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic

Lego’s Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic

Everybody has an electric pickup truck these days, but Lego’s proposal is by far the best

Whether we like it or not, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bound to populate our news feeds for longer than we expected. Helped by the now infamous “armour” windows blunder caused by your humble metal ball, the wave of mockery is getting thicker and thicker. Classier, too.

Such an example of a neat trollage came earlier this week from Tesla’s fellow carmaker BMW, as Munich’s social media department saw the window shattering a good opportunity to pile up more exposure for BMW’s bulletproof X5 Protection VR6. And then came Lego.

BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter

BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter

Keep it classy BMW, keep it classy

We’re back with more Tesla Cybertruck-related news as BMW decided to capture some attention on Twitter and channel it on one of its most spectacular products by throwing some shade at the Cybertruck.

As you know, BMW will sell you, on special request, the so-called X5 Protection VR6, a heavily armoured vehicle packing 530 horsepower and the ability to withstand gunfire coming from an AK-47. This sort of badassery allowed BMW to troll Tesla and Musk for the “armor” widows gaffe that took place during the pickup truck’s live reveal.

1968 Ford Bronco Wagon by Jay Leno, Ford Performance, LGE-CTS, and SEMA Garage

1968 Ford Bronco Wagon by Jay Leno, Ford Performance, LGE-CTS, and SEMA Garage

A mundane Bronco on the outside, a hot-rod under the skin

With a modern Ford Bronco just around the corner, TV personality and car collector Jay Leno gave new life to a first-generation Bronco Wagon with help from Ford Performance and various aftermarket tuning shops. Shown to the public at the 2019 SEMA Show, this Bronco retains the looks of the original SUV, but it features modern underpinnings with a supercharged V-8 built by Ford Performance. The story behind the vehicle is quite interesting, as it was left for Jay Leno as a joke by fellow TV host Craig Ferguson. Leno kept the vehicle in his garage unrestored until he decided that it deserves a new life.

Various companies and shops contributed to the project, starting with Ford Performance, FoMoCo’s very own performance division. Kincer Chassis, Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts, SEMA Garage, and LGE-CTS Motorsports.
