Leaked Memo Says GR Corolla Will Arrive At Dealers Sooner Than We Thought
As a result of an internal memo from Toyota getting leaked onto the GR Corolla Forum, we now know that the GR Corolla will be hitting showrooms in America in October of this year. This lines up with Toyota’s statement from back in March that the base Core level GR Corolla would go on sale in late 2022. However, it is unclear if this means all trims of the GR Corolla will be on sale or just the base Core trim as the leaked memo does not specify either way.
The 2022 CCM Classic Tracker Is A Gorgeous, Handmade Flat Track Motorcycle For The Streets
UK-based Clews Competition Motorcycles (CCM) is a name popular for its retro-looking, performance-oriented offerings, and staying true to its nature, the British bikemaker has now unveiled the Classic Tracker. New for 2022, the Classic Tracker takes inspiration from flat track motorcycles and aims to offer the same level of fun (as a flat track bike) but on the public roads. How? Well, read on to know exactly that.
CFMoto’s New Electric Motorcycle Lets The Police Hunt Down Criminals In An Eco-friendly Way
CFMoto might’ve just made a comeback in the USA with its gas-powered bikes, but it’s progressed well ahead in its home country, China. A prime example of this is the all-new CFMoto 300GT-E, the company’s all-electric police bike built to take down miscreants in an eco-friendly way. Let’s take a look.
The Mercedes CLE Marks the End for the C-Class and E-Class
Insufficient sales of the E-Class coupe and the C-Class coupe cannot go unnoticed, and it is finally the time to give the last hurrah to the current models. Automotive News reports that the Stuttgart-based carmaker has confirmed the discontinuation of these models with U.S., and the launch of their replacement, the new CLE-Class is imminent. If the cards are played right, the new CLE-Class will be an instant hit because it will be very similar to the Mercedes-AMG SL-Class in terms of design aesthetics and features.
The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022
As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.
2023 Toyota BZ4X Review: Radically Different But Underachieving
Someone must have told Toyota that electric vehicles are supposed to be different. For its first dedicated EV, the company applied that lesson with blacked-out fenders, a fabric-upholstered dashboard, an inscrutable gear selector, and an alphabet-soup name.
The result is the 2023 Toyota bZ4X — the “bZ” standing for a new all-electric “beyond zero” subbrand. At the same time, the bZ4X is more “normal” than many other leading EVs. It focuses on a smooth, quiet ride over explosive power and sporty handling. And despite its quirks, the Toyota’s interior is more plush than ultramodern.
Priced from $42,000 before a $7,500 federal tax credit, the bZ4X is a front-wheel-drive-based crossover that slots between the compact and mid-size segments. Toyota co-developed it with Subaru, which will sell a near-clone of the bZ4X as the Solterra. We just spent a week in a preproduction bZ4X to see how it fits into the fast-growing electric crossover segment.
Rendering: An Off-Road Tesla Cybertruck With the Angles to go Anywhere
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated yet controversial vehicles in recent times. This is mainly due to the fact that the all-electric pickup truck from Tesla was unveiled back in 2019 and despite numerous preorders, still hasn’t seen the light of day. While Elon Musk assures us that the Cybertruck will go on sale in 2023, Tesla may have dropped the ball since other carmakers have, not only brought it up, but beat Tesla to the EV pickup truck game, a case in point being the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and the GMC Hummer EV.
Custom BMW R NineT From Amsterdam Is A Match Made In Heaven For Your Favorite JDM Cars

2022 KTM 1290 Super Duke R Evo - Performance, Price, and Photos
KTM’s big-bore naked bike, the 1290 Super Duke R EVO, rolls into 2022 with an additional electronic gee-gaw in the form of the Semi-Active Suspension Technology feature. This is, of course, on top of all the usual sophistication that was already standard on KTM’s biggest naked-sport offering that made this machine such an apex predator.
After Soldiers, African Wildlife Rangers Are Using Electric Motorcycles To Nab Poachers
A few days ago, we reported that Ukrainian soldiers were using electric motorcycles in the war to sneak up on the Russian army. Now, following in these footsteps, African wildlife conservation parks are equipping park rangers with electric motorcycles to travel deep in the forests and combat poachers.
2022 BMW R 1250 GS - Performance, Price, and Photos
BMW launched into MY2021 with a freshly updated R 1250 GS base model accompanied by a 40th year anniversary model that sports the Option 719 “bumblebee” livery. The boxer-twin powerplant remains the same mechanically but comes with improved ride-control and safety electronics along with some long-requested optional comfort gear and a full line of ex-werke accessory equipment to boot. BMW brings its on- and off-road experience together to make a truly capable globetrotter, and decidedly not the two-wheeled equivalent of a soccer mom’s SUV.

This 2013 Ducati Diavel AMG Edition Is A Carbon-clad Masterpiece
Long before Ducati introduced the Lamborghini edition of the Diavel, the Italian giant had joined hands with Mercedes’ performance division AMG to give us the Ducati Diavel AMG special edition.

The Nissan Altima Might Be a Little Less Boring in 2023
Being a toned-down version of the Maxima, the Altima has been one of the most value-for-money compact sedans with a starting price lower than $25,000. And while it is Nissan’s go-to budget car, it receives a few updates for 2023 to keep it fresh and modern. For example, the exterior has a sportier appearance with an updated grille, front bumper, new wheel designs, and two new exterior colors. However, the cabin design remains mostly unchanged. But a new 12.3-inch infotainment display is standard on the SL and SR, while available as an option for the SV. A set of new driver assistance features are added to the list, too, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and blindspot monitoring.

Which one is better - The Manual Toyota Supra 3.0 or the new GR 86?
When Toyota unveiled the new generation Supra back in 2019 it only offered it with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It’s an alright gearbox, but a true sports car at least offers the option of a manual transmission. Toyota needed almost three years to understand that, and, at the beginning of 2022, Toyota finally started offering the Supra with the long-waited six-speed manual transmission. Now, the question is: if you want to buy a Toyota sports car with a manual transmission should you go for the updated Supra or for the recently launched GR86? The guys over TopGear try to answer that question for you in their latest episode.
