New Spy Shots Confirm Porsche’s Secret Macan Project
A few years ago there were rumors that Porsche was working on a hybrid version of the Macan. With the first-gen crossover near the end of its life-cycle, it seems that the Germans are switching to an all-electric layout. The next-gen Macan was spotted testing on public roads, and even though it doesn’t look radically different, it has nothing in common with the old model under the skin.
2020 Ford Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept
Post the big debut, the Ford Bronco and its urban-alter ego are busy with various other activities. The Bronco Sport recently won the 2020 Rebelle Rally in its category in stock condition, and now Ford has announced the Bronco will don the emergency vehicle outfit to support the National Forest Foundation.
Ford has teamed up with Filson, an outdoor outfitter, to develop the Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept. It is customized with firefighting equipment and Ford will donate two examples for the cause.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Protest Edition By Chelsea Truck Company
Chelsea Truck Company has returned with another Jeep Wrangler rendition called the Protest Edition. Although the name could be considered slightly controversial, the changes made to the SUV are pretty neat. Nothing under the hood has been changed and it is stock, which means all the changes are cosmetic only. This Wrangler is a right-hand-drive model and is brand-new, unlike some of the examples from Chelsea lately that have had previous owners.

2020 Land Rover Defender By Himalaya
Himalaya is known to create builds of timeless vehicles. One of them is the Defender, with which the aftermarket company has had a love affair for a long time. Last year, Himalaya worked on the new Defender to create a special edition called Spectre. Now, the company has laid its hand on the renowned moniker to build a 650-horsepower beast that inducts itself into Himalaya’s flagship Summit Series.
The 2022 GMC Hummer Is Billed As a SuperTruck, But Is It Really?
GM dropped a major bomb earlier this year when it announced the return of the buried moniker, the Hummer. However, what surprised folks even more was that Hummer, known to be a gas guzzler, was now being presented as a sober vehicle that doesn’t drink anymore. But, despite this opposite-end-of-the-spectrum reincarnation, what didn’t change was its monstrous size and the attention-grabbing persona.
The automaker unveiled a few teasers during the Superbowl earlier this year and had plans to reveal the supertruck sometime in May. But, courtesy of the pandemic, the plans went haywire. Now, the company has finally taken the wraps off this beast and given us a few details. So, is the GMC Hummer EV worth the hype?
2021 Audi RS Q8 by ABT
ABT Sportsline is back again, this time giving a twist to Audi’s performance SUV, the RS Q8. The aftermarket company has worked on a lot of Audi models in the past, and this time it is the SUV’s turn. Not too long ago, the company turned the RS4 wagon into a different beast. This time, ABT is offering two different packages, offering a significant increase in the power outputs over the stock numbers. There are a lot more goodies, like new wheels and exhaust system, that feature along with the package.
Rolls-Royce Is Still Trying To Convince You To Take Your $330,000 Cullinan Off-Road
Rolls-Royce Cullinan needs no introduction. It is the automaker’s first SUV ever and is also the most expensive production SUV in the world, proudly wearing a price tag north of $300,000. When you plonk in so much money on an SUV, taking it for dune bashing is something that wouldn’t even cross your mind. But, that doesn’t mean the Cullinan is not capable of going off the beaten paths, and its latest video seems to send the same message. But, will the owners risk taking it to the desert?
Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²
Not too long ago, the Mercedes G-Class 4x4² was spotted undergoing high-altitude testing in the Alps, thus confirming the return of the alter-ego version of the luxurious off-roader.
While we were expecting to hear more about it, Mercedes decided to divert our attention from it by introducing a 4×4² concept version of its all-electric SUV, the EQC. To put it simply the EQC 4×4² is the off-road version of the standard EQC. Do we need something like this at a time when Mercedes is still trying to find its feet in the electric segment?
Cadillac Could Build a High-Performance Escalade-V, Not That The World Needs It
Cadillac introduced the fifth-generation Escalade for the 2021 model and on top of being better in just about every department, it will also spawn an all-electric drivetrain shared with the upcoming GMC Hummer EV.

When’s it coming and how powerful will it be? Let’s find out below.

After coming up with the 6x6 version of the world’s fastest and quickest production pickup truck, the Ram 1500 TRX, there was a lot of curiosity surrounding Hennessey’s next project. As it turns out, the company chose the world’s most powerful production SUV this time to give it a typical Hennessey twist. The aftermarket company has announced that it will be coming up with a 1,000-plus-horsepower iteration of the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.
The MDX Prototype Could Amplify Acura’s Newfound Technological Dominance
Seven years old as of 2020, the third-generation Acura MDX is on its way out. A much-improved fourth-gen model is underway for an October 14 unveiling, but the SUV we’re going to see later this week is a prototype of the upcoming production model.
Acura just unveiled images and details of the new MDX’s interior and it all looks very promising. Not only a step up in terms of premium features, it also comes with brand-new technology and upgraded connectivity. The digital displays are also much bigger than before. Let’s have a closer look below.
Would You Have Preferred The Bronco With A Foldable Windshield?
Although the Ford Bronco checks most of the boxes, and then some more, there are a few rather noticeable things that are missing. One is the V-8 engine, which looked like it could feature somewhere in the future, but Ford confirmed that’s not happening.
The second one is the foldable windshield. When the Bronco was unveiled, it came with almost all the stuff that is offered on the Wrangler as well, but it was conspicuous by its absence. Ford has now thrown some light on it citing compromised construction as the reason for it not being offered.
2020 Ford Expedition - Driven
In a world where large SUVs are becoming the norm, there’s no shortage of models to choose from. Having recently driven the Nissan Armada and knowing that the Ford Expedition is now two years old as of 2020, we figured it was time to see if Ford’s resident large SUV can hold its own in a highly competitive, constantly evolving segment. After spending a week with the Expedition Platinum, we discovered a lot that we liked and a few things we didn’t – this is our experience and what you need to know.
Supercar Blondie Took a Break From Supercars To Hit The Beach In Something Unique
Supercar Blondie is known to review supercars primarily, but this time, she’s gotten hold of something completely different. Filmed on a beach in the UAE, she laid her hands on an amphibious beast known as Avtoros Shaman 8x8. The Shaman 8x8 is a monster in terms of size and has some pretty large wheels and tires. The best part about the Shaman 8x8 is that you can take it for a swim in the ocean if you’re bored with roads. If this was part of GTA: Vice City, it would be the only car that didn’t need the “SEAWAYS” cheat code to swim in water!
Does This Rendering Accurately Predict Pininfarina’s Future?
Pininfarina is responsible for some of the most provocative-looking cars in history. From legendary machines like the Ferrari F40 and Ferrari Enzo to staggering custom creations like the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Hyperion, BMW Gran Lusso Coupe, and Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo, Pininfarina’s design DNA can be found in some of history’s most attractive rides. Automakers far and wide have come to Pininfarina for their automotive design needs, and the Italian design house has proven time and again that it’s the go-to firm for those needs. A big part of the studio’s success rests on the designers that it has in the fold.
One such designer, Daniel Gombo, technically isn’t employed by Pininfarina, but he did just finish his master’s thesis under the supervision of the Italian firm and part of that thesis required Gombo to design a vehicle.
2021 Ford Bronco Overland Concept

If you’re a fan of restomods, you probably know that Ringbrothers is one of the best names in the business. The Wisconsin-based company is know for building tremendous restomod vehicles out of classic muscle cars, all of which stole the show at specific events across the U.S. in recent years.

Chasing Whales: BMW X7 M50i Drag Races Mercedes-AMG G 63
A few years ago drag racing used to be a thing for muscle cars and supercars, as was development at the Nurburgring. Nowadays, most vehicles, including performance SUVs, are being tested on race tracks before production starts, and we can also see them running quarter-mile races.
Are drag races relevant for a massive, full-size SUV? Not really. But people still do it, simply because it’s fun. If you ever wondered how the Mercedes-AMG G 63 and the BMW X7 M50i compare in straight-line racing, the folks over at Track Day just ran a test.
Inspector Gadget Style: Every Gizmo In the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Detailed
The Cadillac Escalade was born in a supposedly ‘premium’ family, but it hasn’t had a blissful life. It started as a ripped-off Yukon Denali in its early days, but things kept getting better as it grew. Within a few years, the automaker re-did the SUV and launched a distinct version that gave the Cadillac its own identity. Despite that, it never really hit the success peak that it should’ve. But, it looks like the company is hell-bent on turning its fortunes, and that might as well be the case with fifth-generation, 2021 Escalade.
Cadillac has upped the ante in almost all aspects, and the SUV now has the pizzazz and desirability quotient that the previous iterations lacked. Wondering what those are? Well, here are a few covered by The Fast Lane Car in a video where you can see the various ‘gizmos’ that feature inside this big beast.
Drain Me Up, Scotty: This Is How The 2021 Ford Bronco Gets Rid of Interior Water
The brand-new, 2021 Ford Bronco is more than just a hauler to drive around in. Just like the Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco was conceived with off-road capability in mind and the right specs will enable it to climb muddy and rocky trails with ease.
Do that without the doors into place and the interior will get dirty, but this isn’t much of an issue since it’s the kind of vehicle you can clean with a hose. And because the Bronco’s floor is fitted with no fewer than 10 plugs, draining the water out of the cabin is not a problem.
