Is a 2020 BMW X6 M50i Faster Than Jaguar’s Supercharged F-Pace SVR?
If you told us two decades ago that we’ll have SUVs fitted with bumped-up V-8 engines roaming the streets, able to pull off insane 0-60 figures, we would have sent you home for a nap to cure that drunkenness. Fast forward 20 years and drag racing performance SUVs is becoming the norm, so here’s today’s duel: the BMW X6 M50imeets the F-Pace SVR. Care for a bet?
Audi E-Tron Models are Now Cheaper and the SUV Has More Range, But It’s Still Not Good Enough
The Audi E-Tron SUV and Sportback are fairly amazing vehicles. I love the fact that they are electric but still look like a modern-day car without all the funky futuristic crap that some automakers try to put in there. The way I see it, both are – for the most part – perfect transitional vehicles. They have lots of technology but don’t go overboard. They provide decent performance and comfort, two things you’d expect from Audi. But, they aren’t without their flaws, and the two biggest – pricing and range – are finally starting to be addressed. Both models will get a big drop in pricing, and the E-Tron SUV will see a slight jump in range, but I’m sad to say that it’s still not enough.
2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 by PerformMaster
The Mercedes-AMG G63 is turning out to be quite popular with the aftermarket tuners. We’ve seen builds from companies like Carlex Design, Wald International, Brabus, Mansory, and many others in the past.
This time, another company has laid its hands on the luxurious, boxy SUV. Germany-based PerformMaster has given the G63 a twist that includes a few cosmetic changes and a power bump that pushes it over 800 horses. Is this enough to set it apart from other customized builds?
You’ll Be Able to Configure Your New 2021 Ford Bronco Sooner Than You Think!
The 2021 Bronco has created a stir and people can’t seem to stop talking about it. In fact, the response has been so overwhelming that the website had also crashed. According to the Q2 earnings call, well over a hundred thousand people have reserved the new Bronco and can’t wait to lay their hands on the off-roader.
With numerous packages and accessories announced, the next exciting part is to be able to configure it and Ford has some good news for us on that front. The company has confirmed that the Bronco configurator will go live in September!
The 2021 Ford Bronco’s Optional Tube Doors Bring Something the JL Wrangler Can’t
Ford recently unveiled the highly-anticipated 2021 Bronco, but we still don’t know much about its accessories. A recent leak confirms that the SUV will be available with tube doors, but unlike the Wrangler, the Bronco will also feature airbags for increased safety.
2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Brabus 700 By Fostla.de
Brabus is known to customize and give the vehicles it works on a unique twist. Its favorite bunny, the Mercedes-AMG G63, has been transformed into many different iterations. One of them is the Brabus 700. The aftermarket company later tweaked it again with a small performance boost and some exterior upgrades that resulted in the 700 Widestar. Now, another German company called Fostla.de has laid its hands on the Brabus 700 Widestar to give it its own twist. This pattern will make Christopher Nolan proud.
This 2021 Ford Bronco Police Interceptor Is Ready to Protect and Serve You Off-Road
The Bronco is a capable off-roader and there’s no doubt about it. Even its little sibling, the Bronco Sport, seems like an all-rounder that can take the tarmac and the beaten paths equally well. We’ve seen it as a Raptor, as a Baja 1000 racer, but this time, we’ve come across an intriguing rendering. How cool would a Bronco be in a cop uniform? Aksyonov Nikita has rendered the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport as a Police Interceptor and it looks fantastic!
2021 Ford Bronco Sport
The Bronco’s revival has made enthusiasts and purists more than happy. But, given how tough the market has become, Ford knew that it would also need a practical vehicle. In comes the Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport is not as rugged as the standard Bronco and can be very much used as a daily driver as well. If I had to describe it in a sentence, I’d say it’s not an off-roader like the Bronco, but a crossover with a very heavy off-road bias. It has a lot of Bronco shades and vibe all around, but will people accept it as an urban crossover and as their daily driver?
Throttle House Says the Land Rover Defender is a $75,000 Ford Bronco Fighter
Brands bringing back past-glory monikers is the norm these days and with no signs of this trend slowing down, reviews such as TH’s latest video are bound to pop up on the internet sooner or later.
Now, the video argues that the 2020 Land Rover Defender is a Bronco fighter, which is actually very debatable, for a variety of reasons - however, the two cars are quite similar to some extent.
2021 Ford Bronco
After being in production for over three decades, the Bronco went down in the history books as one of the most hardcore SUVs that mankind had ever seen. The SUV was developed as an off-roader to take on the Jeep CJ-5, and it succeeded to a large extent. However, the company decided to put down the model in 1996 to make way for a newer lineup. Purists and enthusiasts hoped the model would make a comeback, and after 20+ years, the moniker has come back from the ashes.
Rumors about its reincarnation started many years back, but the company didn’t confirm its existence until less than a year before it was unveiled. The wait was not easy, but it was worth it. The company launched the rugged, off-road Bronco in two- and four-door configurations, to go with an urban version with an off-road bias called the Bronco Sport. Ford will offer hundreds of optional accessories right from its launch as well. Despite all this, does it have in it to take on the undisputed king of the segment, the Jeep Wrangler?
S.-based Tuner Unveils The Ford Bronco Midnite Edition
If there is anyone more excited about the new Bronco other than the enthusiasts, it’s the aftermarket companies. From offering a V-8 engine under the hood to creating a Baja-1000 winner-based Bronco, we’ve seen it all since the off-roader was reincarnated. But this is no way the end of it. Illinois-based Maxlider Brothers Customs has created a Midnite edition that pays homage to the 1991-92 Nite Bronco. How’s that for a double dose of nostalgia?
Engineering Explained Breaks Down the Ford Bronco’s Crawler Gear and Teaches You About Gear Reduction
Purists and enthusiasts were rooting for a manual transmission to be offered in the Bronco and Ford decided to make them happy. However, the automaker went one step ahead and offered it with a Crawler gear. Now, everyone knows that the Crawler gear features an ultra-low gear ratio that will be extremely helpful when traversing over rocks and mountains. But, how does it work? Well, Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained has broken down the math in this video.
2021 BMW X7 Dark Shadow Edition
It looks like we’re going through some ‘dark’ days lately. A couple of days back,Ram introduced a Black Edition package for its heavy duty trucks, and now BMW has come up with one for the X7 SUV. Called the Dark Shadow Edition, this appearance package will be limited to just 500 examples worldwide and the U.S. will receive 75 of those. BMW is asking $120,490 for this exclusive edition X7.
New Run-Down Showcases How Easy the Ford Bronco’s Doors and Roof Can Be Installed
Ford recently unveiled the Bronco, reviving the nameplate after 25 years, and off-road enthusiasts went wild over its looks and modularity. Just like the original Bronco, the 2021 SUV comes with removable doors and various options for the roof. You can go with either a soft-top or a hard-top that you can remove entirely or have certain panels taken off. But how long does it take to strip the Bronco off and prepare it for an off-road adventure? You can find out in this video from D’Z RIDEZ.
There’s a Good Chance That This Land Rover Defender Is Testing a New V-8
The iconic Land Rover Defender returned in 2019 after a three-year hiatus. It continues to be a rugged-style, boxy SUV with solid off-road capability, but it’s now infused with state-of-the-art technology and premium features. Land Rover offers a range of turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, including a mild hybrid drivetrain, but a V-8 engine is still missing. That’s about to change though, as our paparazzi just spotted a new prototype that seems to feature such a powertrain.
If You Have Enough Money, You Can Have Anything - Even a Factory-Built Toyota RAV4 Limo
Regular people like to work on their hobbies once the 9-to-5 program is over and done with. Not the industrious folks over at Toyota’s Takaoka plant in Japan. No, sir. There, 200 members of the staff decided to use their off-hours time to put together this Toyota RAV4 limo.
Everything You Need to Know About the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor
The 2021 Ford Bronco has been the talk of the town since it was unveiled. The off-roader was, arguably, the most anticipated model this year, and it would be fair to say that it didn’t disappoint. But we enthusiasts are a greedy bunch and still want a Raptor version of the Bronco. That’s like asking for an off-road version of an off-roader! The Bronco comes with most of the stuff needed, but a Raptor trim could push things beyond the boundaries. Also, the Bronco has taken part in Baja 1000 before it was reincarnated, so that makes having a Raptor version even more imperative, and it could further cement the new off-roader’s place in the segment.
Ford Looked to its Past With Modern Tech to Make the 2021 Ford Bronco
Now, you might look at the Ford Bronco Sport and say, “that’s not a real Bronco,” but you’d be out of your mind if you said the same for the 2- or 4-door Bronco. There are so many subtle and obvious hints that the 2021 Ford Bronco carries around 50-year-old DNA. There might not be an overabundance of it, but that’s a good thing. Now, we’re learning that Ford actually 3D scanned an original Bronco to give engineers a firm starting point. Did it work? You bet your ass it did.
2020 Toyota Highlander - Driven
Last year, the Toyota Highlander was in its final model year of a generation that wasn’t great even when it was new. This three-row crossover lacked the spaciousness, slick driving manners, extra-easy ergonomics, modern infotainment, and upscale interior details of the latest competitors. Yet by a healthy margin, it outsold every other seven-seat vehicle in the country. Buyers were drawn to a trusted name, and even if the competition might have been more impressive, loyal customers didn’t find enough wrong with the Highlander to try their hand with, say, a Mazda CX-9 or Kia Telluride. Now, there’s a new Highlander, and it’s time to see where Toyota has made marked improvements.
Your $60,000 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Isn’t So Special Anymore
The 2021 Ford Bronco was met with a lot of excitement during its digital debut. Not everybody was happy, with the most common complaint seeming to be that there’s no option for a V-8. But, that didn’t stop Ford’s pre-order portal from being overloaded or the First-Edition from being sold out within a matter of hours. That First Edition trim is what we’re going to talk about today, or to be more specific, we’re going to talk about how Ford just upped the production cap from 3,500 to 7,000, making it a little less special in the process.
The Audi E-Tron S Is Still Heavy, But It Makes Up For That Weight with Ample Amounts of Power and Torque
The Audi e-tron has been on the market since last year, and it’s received positive feedback overall. This was the German automaker’s first mainstream volume EV and the company managed to cover all the bases quite well, except for the range. Earlier this month, the Audi unveiled the ‘S’ version of the e-tron that comes with more power. The ‘S’ badge is slapped on the SUV as well as the Sportback body type. It comes with better performance specs, an extra motor, and a few dimensional tweaks.
A Handful of Renderings Imagines the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor in Different Colors
Ford came out all guns blazing with the new Bronco. The automaker has created the ultimate off-roader that checks all the boxes; well, almost all. The two things that we purists would’ve wanted – which we could receive some time in the future perhaps – are a V-8 engine and a Raptor treatment. These vacuums are already filled by aftermarket companies and rendering artists to give us a taste of what to expect when the real deal comes out.
We saw a rendering of a two-door Bronco Sport Raptor earlier this week, but now we have a rendering of the four-door Bronco Raptor in four different shades, courtesy of Oscar V from Concept Autos. The changes are subtle yet noticeable, and we are impressed.
2021 Ford Bronco vs The Original Bronco
Ford revived the Bronco for the 2021 model year and brought the iconic nameplate back on the market after 25 years. And even though it had five generations to consider, four of which competed in the full-size segment, Ford opted to design the 2021 Bronco as a spiritual successor to the original compact SUV.
The sixth-gen hauler is clearly inspired by the first Bronco that was unveiled in 1965, with the most notable difference being a four-door version for the modern SUV. Granted, these vehicles arrived 55 years apart so they’re radically different when it comes to interior features, technology, and powerplants, but the 2021 Bronco is a cool tribute to the original SUV on the surface. So let’s find out what makes them similar and what sets them apart.
