2022 Brabus 900 XLP "One Of Ten" - An AMG G63 That Pushes the Boundaries of Sanity
If the XLP name sounds familiar to you it is because just recently Brabus announced two 800 Adventure XLP packages: one Superblack and one Superwhite. Both are based on the G63 AMG, both deliver 800 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, and both are priced at way over €700,000.
Now the XLP name is back as part of a new 900 XLP "One of ten" package, still based on the G63 AMG, but this time the output goes up to an even more impressive 900 horsepower!
2022 Mansory Gronos EVO S P900
Mansory has a very long history of updating the Mercedes-AMG G63. Just recently, the tuner unveiled two special editions built for the Chinese and the UAE markets. And, because the Middle East is such a big fan of big, luxury, flashy cars, Mansory announced a new special edition built exclusively for them.
If the name sounds familiar - Gronos EVO S P900 - it is because the tuner offered a car with a similar name back in 2021.
2023 Range Rover Sport Debuts With A Sleeker Design And Clever Tech
The 2023 Range Rover Sport breaks cover along with a new sleek, dynamic design and a slew of innovative technologies including intelligent air suspension and rear-wheel steering. This sporty luxury SUV that carries a quintessentially British design aesthetic now packs a BMW M sourced 4.4-liter V-8 along with a new plug-in hybrid model that packs a large battery pack with a longer-range. An all-electric model will debut by 2024.
2022 Brabus Crawler
Summer is just around the corner and all we can think about is outdoor fun. The problem is that there are not many fun buggies out there. The good news is that, like usual, Brabus has our back: the tuner has come up with a hardcore buggy based on the Mercedes-AMG G63.
Limited to only 15 examples, the new Brabus Crawler is priced at €749,000 (almost $800,000 at the current exchange rates). Brabus will build five copies in 2022, five in 2023, and the final five in 2024. Unfortunately, the buggy is not street legal.
Ford Bronco Sport Maxed Out On The German Autobahn - How Fast Will She Run?
Tonka Toys Go To War On The Dirt: The Wrangler 392 Takes On The G-63 AMG And The Defender 90 V-8
Not that they were ever built for speed (or were they now?), Motor1 decided to pit three high-performance V-8-powered rigs against each other on a dry lake bed, out in the deserts of California. The purpose of this battle was to determine the fastest of the trio on the dirt.
2022 Toyota 4Runner
Among a few of the existing old-school body-on-frame SUVs, the 4Runner is still running wild, and is a capable off-roader. With the new Sequoia, we are expecting the 4Runner to receive the anticipated overhaul because it no longer has the updated tech and cabin features to withstand its competitors. The engine under the hood is a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V-6, that does not have a lot of power in comparison to the more modern engines, despite sipping a lot of gas. Still, there is a healthy fanbase who still prefer truck-based SUVs like the 4Runner, but its choppy ride quality and unenthusiastic handling on the road make it less approachable to the broader mass. The 4.0-liter V-6 puts out 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. Apart from the TRD models, all models come with rear-wheel drive as standard, but AWD can be optioned. The 4Runner’s rugged chassis, higher ground clearance, and enhanced off-roading dynamics make it a proper five-seater off-roader. But, can it withstand the more modern approach put forward by the Jeep Wrangler, or the Ford Bronco? Read the full review to know if the Toyota 4Runner is worth your attention, or not.

We Didn’t Know We Needed This Land Rover Defender vs Ram TRX Drag Race Until Now
Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ staged yet another drag race, and this time, he brought two vehicles with supercharged V-8s – one’s the Land Rover Defender, and the other, the Ram 1500 TRX. Both of them are mighty powerful and don’t shy away from spreading their wings to take flight. But, how do they fare against each other? Will the lighter Defender prevail, or will the more powerful TRX smash its rival?
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Facelift Looks Amazing In The Sunset
Mercedes launched the current generation G-Class back in 2018 and now, four years later, the company is about to also offer a facelift for it. Prototypes of the standard G-Class facelift, the AMG G63 and even the the G4×4² have been caught testing many times before, but the ones caught testing recently are a little bit more special. Our spy photographers managed to get some pictures of the facelift G-Class during a beautiful sunset, and we have to admit: the red and orange landscape makes the SUV look even better, despite the camouflage!
This Refreshing Drag Race By Jason Cammisa Between Four Fast Pickup Trucks Is Nuts!
Jason Cammisa from ‘Hagerty’ brought in four trucks to the drag strip that can be touted as the top performance trucks money can buy. It is a nice mix that involves two modern trucks, one with a sweet legacy and still has a strong fan-following, and another that’s been creating waves across the world. These are the Ram 1500 TRX, the Ford F-150 Raptor, the GMC Syclone, and the Rivian R1T. This isn’t your conventional drag race, and that’s what makes it even more interesting.
2022 Mercedes-AMG G 63 "Edition 55"
AMG was founded as a racing engine forge in 1967 by former Mercedes-Benz’s engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher. Over the years, AMG enjoyed huge success, and in 1993 it became the high-profile purveyor of modified Mercedes-Benz cars.
The G-Class has enjoyed a unique position in the AMG portfolio for a long time, so, it should come as no surprise that one of the special editions launched to celebrate AMG’s 55 anniversary is based on the AMG G63.
It will be available for order starting now until October 2022, and AMG promises more surprises on the way.
If The H1 Wasn’t Already Big Enough, This HUMVEE Has Taken Things To A Whole New Level
What you’re looking at, folks, is the world’s biggest Humvee. Based on the old civilian version of the M998 H1, which was never a small vehicle, to begin with, this one, dubbed the H1X3, built for the famed Rainbow Sheikh in the United Arab Emirates, takes it to a whole new level; and I mean that literally.
Pickup Trucks: Can Audi Succeed Where Mercedes Failed?
The idea of a luxury-level truck isn’t anything new. Some of the range-topping models from the Ford F-Series and the Chevy Silverado range certainly hit close to that border. Mercedes even tried to give it a go with the X-Class, but the approach was super lazy (it was basically a Nissan Navara with Mercedes emblems). Now, it looks like Audi is at least considering the idea of dipping its toes into the pool. Could it be that Audi doesn’t only want to pick up were Mercedes failed but actually compete with higher-range models of the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux? Well, this isn’t just some random rumor, and the concept is coming from someone with a lot of influence within the walls of Audi.
Prodrive Hunter Revealed As A Road-Going Ferrari of the Desert
It’s been a couple of years since we talked about the BRX Hunter, a model we described as the most extreme Dakar rally car ever built, and now the first of 25 road-going counterparts has been revealed. Known as the BRX Hunter T1, this first example is built for Bahrain’s Prince Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa and borrows so much from the Dakar rally car that it’s actually a little hard to tell the difference. Prodrive chairman, David Richards, previously called the Hunter T1 a “Ferrari of the desert,” and its sole purpose of existence is to be the fastest cross-country production car in the world.
