This Land Rover Defender From the ‘80s Has Been Completely Revamped
The 20th century Land Rover Defenders are a hot commodity today. A lot of tuners and aftermarket companies undertake restomod operations and give the erstwhile model a modern twist. AutotopiaLA has uploaded a video of a project done by Fusion Motorsport wherein a 30-year old red Land Rover Defender went under the knife. It came out with fresh skin, a new look, and even a new heart. Neat job, huh?
2022 BMW X3 M Competition
BMW recently revealed a plethora of vehicles as part of the 2022 model refresh. One of them included the X3 M Competition. The German revealed the M models for the X3 and the X4 a couple of years back and have now refreshed it for the 2022 model year. It comes with nips and tucks on the inside and outside. Apart from this, the SUV also comes with a slight bump in the torque figures that results in quicker 0-60 mph times. Overall, not bad for what is essentially just a refresh.
Land Rover Defender 110 Is The Support Vehicle At The 2021 Red Bull X-Alps Adventure Race
Land Rover Defender is one of the toughest SUVs that money can buy you. The automaker reminded people of the same when it decided to send a fleet of Defenders to the Alps as support vehicles for the Red Bulls X-Alps adventure race. The Defender will be used to ferry people and supplies around, and will also act as recovery vehicles for the athletes.
10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition
Ferrari will build an SUV. I am not joking, the company made an announcement. It will be called the Ferrari Purosangue. That’s the official name of the Ferrari SUV. Ok, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri implicitly said that he does not want to hear “that word” in the same sentence with the word Ferrari. “That word” being SUV. Ok, Camilleri, I will not do it. Ever. The new Ferrari... truck… will be the most amazing piece of technology ever attempted with the “that word” layout. Luckily, we do know a thing or two about the new Purosangue.
Digression: Is the word crossover any better? Maybe, but I feel it sounds too soft for the status of a Ferrari. The Honda CR-V is a crossover for crying out loud.
The new Purosangue may take a layout similar to what we have been accustomed to with the onslaught of performance SUVs, yet the Italians promised to make it a proper thoroughbred. Incidentally (not really), Purosangue translated from Italian actually means thoroughbred. Is it just me, or the name Ferrari Thoroughbred (in English) wouldn’t sound bad at all? We have a Superfast and we like it, don’t we? Enough with the strange ideas. Purosangue it is.
Christopher Smith of Motor1 explained how to pronounce it:
“PUR-o-SAN-gue. There are four syllables, with emphasis on PUR and SAN. Phonetically speaking, start with PUR, as in a cat purring. From there just say a soft O as in oh, then SAN with a long A sound like saahn, and finish with GUE, which sounds like way but starting with a g – gway. PURR - oh - SAAHN - gway. See? It’s totally easy.”
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Starts From $37K
Launched under a new-generation design, the new Grand Cherokee features an all-new architecture, the option of three different 4WD systems, an entire suite of safety and security features, and — in the case of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L – three rows of seating. Now, Jeep has released pricing for the biggest of the bunch, the Grand Cherokee L, and it starts from $36,995, not a bad price for a full-size SUV. If you want 4WD, you’ll have to add $2,000 onto the MSRP for a total of $38,995, but these are just entry level prices. Start moving up the trim line, and you’ll see prices start to increase substantially, with the L Laredo Altitude – one step above the entry level Laredo – starting at $40,195 or $42,195 with 4WD. Prices continue to increase incrementally up to the range-topping Cherokee L Summit Reserve that commands a whopping $61,995 with RWD and a V-6 or $65,290 for the V-8 model with 4WD.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Takes On the BMW X4M Competition And Porsche Macan In An Epic Throwdown
Compact SUVs are the hottest selling vehicles today across the price segments. Almost every mainstream automaker has a compact SUV in its lineup that’s doing pretty well for it. If you’re ready to spend big bucks on a compact SUV, you can get some pretty hot machines. The folks at Carwow brought three such SUVs to a drag strip and put them in a series of races. These include two Germans – the BMW X4M Competition and the Porsche Macan Turbo, and an Italian – the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
2022 Buick Enclave
Following the updated Buick Envision and Encore GX, Buick has given the Enclave a thorough workover. The exterior appearance has been improved thanks to Buick’s sharper design language, and you can even see some elements inspired by the Avenir too. The front fascia, grille, and headlights have all be updated, while Sport Touring models benefit from new 20-inch wheels. On the inside, Buick did everyone a justice by restyling the center console and a push-button electronic transmission gear selector. The cabin now has updated soft materials and the front seats are ventilated with a massage function. The Buick Enclave is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 that is good for 210 horsepower, and that is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to the front wheels, but if you’re willing to pay for the upgrade, you can have all-wheel drive. The 2022 Buick Enclave will launch later on in 2021 following a pricing announcement sometime in late summer or early fall.
2022 Kia Seltos Turbo Nightfall Edition
To celebrate the onset success of the new Kia Seltos, Kia has made it even better for the 2022 model year. A big part of the improvements for 2022 are the now standard safety features across the entire lineup. All models above the LX trim now feature a 10.25-inch infotainment display, UVO link connectivity, remote start, and auto climate control. The other side of the of the celebrate for 2022 is the new Seltos Turbo Nightfall Edition.
The Turbo Nightfall package is only available on models with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine (S and SX trim levels) that have 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque and all-wheel drive. The exterior is enhanced with a number of black elements, including the new 18-inch matte black alloy wheels, black grille, and the standup roof rails, among other things. The interior is left largely untouched outside of a flat-bottom steering wheel and the option to have a “Plum” colored interior. Pricing for the Seltos Nightfall Edition comes in at $26,690.
2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport
Toyota has been quite busy in the last few days. The automaker unveiled the new GR86, a carbon-fiber Supra, debuted the Corolla Cross, introduced the refreshed Tacoma TRD Pro, and even brought the bZ4x concept to our shores. Apart from all this, Toyota also introduced a new TRD Sport model to the 2022 4Runner’s lineup. If you want something that has more off-road vibes and street cred than the regular trims but not something as full-blown off-roader as the TRD Pro trim, then the TRD Sport will fit your bill.
The BMW iX Breaks Cover A Funky Steering Wheel and 300 Miles of Range
BMW’s flagship all-electric SUV, the iX, has arrived. The company calls it the SAV – Sports Activity Vehicle – pretty much like the X7. For now, the automaker has launched it in only a single trim, the xDrive50, but a more powerful M model will arrive in the future. The iX comes with a rather high starting price of $83,200. The SUV, err., SAV, will arrive Stateside along with the i4 in the first quarter of 2022.
This is the Ferrari Simoom - The SUV Ferrari Should Build Instead of the Purosangue
By now, we know that Ferrari is planning to join the performance SUV club, as it is a well-known fact that Ferrari is developing the
the first Ferrari SUV ever. It is believed that the design will be heavily influenced by the Ferrari Roma. However, Dejan Hristov – an avid graphic designer and evident car enthusiast – has shared his take on what a Ferrari SUV should look like. Meet the Ferrari Simoom, named after one of the most famous desert winds.
2022 Taos Is Now The Most Affordable Volkswagen SUV In The States
The 2022 Genesis GV70 Is Priced Very So Competitively That It’s Almost Unbelievable
2021 Bentley Bentayga S
Bentley seems to have stepped on the gas here to pump the sales numbers and attract a wider audience base. After refreshing the Bentayga and the Bentayga Speed for the 2021 model year, the automaker has now announced a new trim in the lineup called the Bentayga S. It comes with a V-8 engine at heart and features a few aesthetic upgrades inside out. But, the highlight here is the introduction of the Bentley Dynamic Ride system. So, at the core, the USP of this fourth Bentayga model is its dynamic on-road performance.
2022 BMW X5 M Facelift
The current BWM X5 has been in production since 2018 and it seems a refreshed version is coming soon. The fourth generation, with internal designation G05, has been spotted in a new guise, which can mean only one thing – a facelift is coming. Although BMW is working on many new models, most of which electric, it’s also updating its existing lineup and the X5 is the latest model to undergo a revision.
1997 Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution - An Unappreciated Dakar Raider
It’s no secret that Mitsubishi is a pale shadow of its former self. Having numerous successes in rallying, the brand has switched to making bland, cheaply-made crossovers and compact cars. Although Mitsubishi currently finds itself in a state of survival (they put the Eclipse name on a crossover), things were quite different in the 1990s. Not long ago, we talked about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart, which was essentially the two-door “EVO” everyone wanted but never got. But long before it, there was this – the short-wheelbase-only Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution. And there’s a lot to say about it.
2021 Kia Sorento - Driven
The 2021 model year marks the fourth generation of the Kia Sorento. The previous generations were soft, curvy, and rounded, but the 2021 model is boxy, sexy, and a lot sharper. The company has pinned the SUV on a new platform, and has introduced new hybrid and plug-in hybrid engine options. The cabin feels fresh, more spacious, and can be had with captain chairs in the second row. All in all, the family SUV is a huge improvement over the outgoing model. The 2021 Kia Sorento recently arrived at TopSpeed headquarters and we have to say, it is pretty darn impressive.
