2021 Ford Expedition Timberline Off-Grid Concept
When Ford announced the new generation Expedition, it also announced the addition of the new Timberline trim - a model described by Ford as "the most off-road-capable Expedition ever."
Now, Ford took this off-road capability even further with the announcement of the new Expedition Timberline Off-Grid Concept. It will be displayed at the Overland Expo East at Oak Ridge Estates in Arrington, Virginia this upcoming weekend and the in November at the 2021 SEMA Show.
2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior
Back in September 2021, Alfa Romeo announced the special editions Giulia and Stelvio ’6C Villa d’Este.’ The two models paid tribute to the 6C 2500 SS Coupé produced by Alfa Romeo in the 1940s. Now, a month later, the Italian company announced the Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior - two special edition models that pay tribute to the GT 1300 Junior - a very successful Alfa Romeo model built between 1966 and 1976.
2021 Mercedes G-Class by Delta4x4
The G-Class is probably the only Mercedes-Benz that can offer you an amazing off-road experience. Actually, is probably one of the few luxury SUV that can do that. But, as you know there is always room for improvement and this is where delta4x4 comes into picture. The German tuner is offering an Off-Road package that will improve the SUV’s off-road capability.
2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep launched the fifth-gen of one of its most successful models, the Grand Cherokee, last month. The SUV will ride on a new platform that so far underpins just one other vehicle – the recently launched three-row version of the same SUV, the Grand Cherokee L. Apart from this, the 2022 Grand Cherokee also comes with updated exterior, new tech features inside the cabin, new drive systems, and the most important of all, a new hybrid engine that marks the seconds 4xe model in Jeep’s lineup after the Wrangler. The 2022 Grand Cherokee will arrive later this year and the prices for the same will be revealed then.
2021 Brabus 800 by Fostla.de
Last year, Brabus and fostla.de unveiled the Brabus 700 - a package based on the Mercedes-AMG G63 that delivered a total of 700 horsepower - as its name suggests. This year, the two companies took things even further and came up with the Brabus 800. As you guessed, this is also an updated G63, but with 800 horsepower under the hood.
2022 Mercedes-Maybach Edition 100
It was September, 1921 when Maybach Motorenbau GmbH presented its first mass-produced car at the motor show in Berlin. The model was named W3 and it was the first German production car with four-wheel brakes, an epicyclic gear system, and an interior with the finest materials.
To commemorate the event, Maybach launched the special "Edition 100". It will be based on both the S-Class and the GLS, each limited to 100 units. In Europe, orders will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 and sales at the beginning of 2022. The U.S. market will only get the sedan version with sales to begin in the first half of 2022.
2021 Nissan Rogue - Driven
The Nissan Rogue rolled into its third generation for the 2021 model year as the brand’s best-selling vehicle and one of the most popular small SUVs on the market. That’s saying a lot since it contends with cars like the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, among many others. The third generation kicks off with updated looks, new tech, and some all-new features along with an all-new range-topping Platinum trim – the model we just spent an entire week with. Will the third-gen Rogue live up to the standards set by its predecessor and, more importantly, can it overshadow its stiff competition?
2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale
I have to admit: when I saw the Tonale Concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show I was impressed. It kind of looked like the Stelvio, but it was a lot sportier. It was proof that Alfa Romeo can significantly improve its SUV look.
And when Alfa Romeo announced a production version should follow shortly, I was even more stocked. Problems though came shortly after the announcement. Jean-Philippe Imparato was unhappy with the performances offered by the plug-in hybrid system and decided to delay the launch of the production version Tonale. The merge between FAC and PSAdelayed the Tonale even more. But, all those problems are now solved and the Tonale is back on track! An official debut should happen sometime in 2022, and it will be built at the Stellantis plant in Pomigliano d’Arco.
2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Driven
Mitsubishi revealed the fourth-generation Outlander back in February 2021 with a lot of styling influenced by the Engelberg Concept, but if you’re hoping to get all that new goodness in an Outlander PHEV, you’re out of luck. Why? Well, because while the rest of the Outlander lineup transitioned into a new generation, here we have the forgotten Outlander PHEV that’s still stuck in the past, flaunting styling and tech that’s beyond dated. So, is it still worth it to buy an Outlander PHEV in 2021 or should you look for alternatives? Our tester had a final price of $39,835 and its generation went into production in 2012, so you should probably read on if you really want the answer to that question.
2022 Honda Passport TrailSport Rugged Roads Project
Honda unveiled the new, 2022 Pasport TrailSport, and now a new project vehicle was announced. It is called Passport TrailSport Rugged Roads Project, and, as you probably guessed, it is based on the TrailSport.
It was designed by Jon Tuico - you probably know him if you follow YouTube channel JonDZ Adventuring - and will be firstly presented at the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona from Sept. 24-26, 2021.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Driven
At the onset, it seems like the Grand Cherokee L is nothing but a Grand Cherokee with an extra row of seats. Essentially, that’s pretty much true, but, it is much more than just that. The Grand Cherokee L rides on a new platform, comes with a whole lot of new tech features, and is arguably the most off-road capable SUV in the segment. The standard Jeep Grand Cherokee is a big hit, selling over 200,000 examples every year. So, instead of coming up with a completely new model altogether, Jeep decided to build on the Grand Cherokee’s reputation by offering a product with the same ethos, but a lot of distinct differentiation.
2022 Brabus 900 Rocket Edition
Brabus’ previous Rocket 900 program was based on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S. Now, the same treatment was applied to the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe. And no, it is not because the SUV’s standard 603 horsepower are not enough, but because Brabus wants to continue its tradition of building the fastest cars in the world.
And now it’s time to meet the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition or, actually, the world’s fastest SUV!
2021 Chevrolet Suburban Diesel - Driven
Chevrolet debuted the twelfth-gen of the Suburban in December 2019. The SUV came out looking rejuvenated and reinvigorated. Introduced as the 2021 model year Suburban, the SUV was now based on a new platform, featured a new diesel engine option, and came with a range-topping High Country trim. Chevy even capitalized on space optimization, plonked in a new suspension setup, and turned all the screws in the right direction to make this a complete package.
We recently laid our hands on the 2021 Chevy Suburban in the Premier trim with the Duramax diesel engine. Our example was finished in a black exterior shade and looked exquisite, to say the least. It is definitely one of the best full-size SUVs that you can buy today with a five-digit budget.
2022 Honda Passport TrailSport
Back in July, 2021 Honda trademarked a new name: "TrailSport" - and everyone was asking what is the name going to be applied to. After that, at the beginning of September, 2021, we got a first teaser that revealed the answer: the TrailSport was going to be a sub-brand that will be mostly applied for SUVs and trucks. Its purpose? To "bring a more rugged design and off-road capability."
And now, we have the first look at the first model to get the TrailSport treatment: the Passport. It will go on sale in the winter of 2021 and will be "even more emotional and adventurous, further advancing Honda’s new rugged design direction for light truck lineup."
2022 Mazda CX-5
Mazda North American has announced that the 2022 CX-5, it’s best-selling SUV – is finally getting some much-needed updates. The most important change is the addition of AWD as standard equipment across the lineup. However, it should also be noted that there are a few exterior design tweaks as well. But can it stand firm against the slightly lower-priced Volkswagen Tiguan and Hyundai Tucson?
2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness
Now in its fifth generation, the Forester is entering the 2022 model year with a series of updates necessary to keep the model fresh. Subaru gives the SUV a redesigned front fascia, with updated grille, headlights and fog light covers.
But, the most important update to the lineup is the addition of a sixth trim level: the all-new Wilderness. With unique and functional exterior and interior appointments, and an elevated ground clearance, the 2022 Wilderness was described as the "most rugged and trail-capable Forester ever."
2022 Kia Sorento PHEV
Kia launched the fourth generation Sorento back in 2020. At the moment of its launch, only gasoline and hybrid engines were announced, and a plug-in hybrid version was promised for the 2022 model year. Now the plug-in hybrid version has been finally added to the Sorento lineup, and it comes with a few cool promises, including a combined overall range of 460 miles.
2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure
If you look at sales figures for the Toyota RAV4 in both Europe and the U.S. you will see that it is a very successful model. Back in 2020 the RAV4 was the best sold SUV in the States for the fourth year in a row, while in Europe it is in the top 3 best sold Toyota models.
So, it was to be expected to see that Toyota is doing its best to further improve the model and come with more ways to attract more customers. Its latest attempt is called "RAV4 Adventure" and, according to Toyota, it "reinforces the model’s “go anywhere” spirit with stand-out rugged styling that’s ready for life in the great outdoors."
2022 Mercedes EQG Concept
Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.
The company showcased the EQG Concept that follows a similar path, but with a lot of new tech. This is said to be a near-production concept, so we can expect the real deal to be revealed by next year, perhaps.
2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT
Porsche has launched the new 2022 Cayenne Turbo GT and it comes with some very impressive specs. It comes with a V-8 engine that puts out 632 horses, making it the most powerful V-8 engine to come out of the Stuttgart’s factory ever.It also set a new lap record at the Nurburgring, thus announcing itself as the top dog in the Cayenne’s lineup. Porsche has also said that the new Cayenne will arrive Stateside in early 2022 only in the Coupe form. As for the price, it is a shade under $200,000.
