GMC Unveils The 2024 Hummer EV SUV

GMC Unveils The 2024 Hummer EV SUV

As expected, it is based on the electric Hummer truck and shares almost all the features and specs

Almost every new upcoming EV truck has an SUV-twin – Rivian R1T and R1S, Bollinger B1 and B2, and so on. GMC has jumped the wagon, too, and has officially announced an electric SUV based on the Hummer EV. While many features are shared, there are a few differences between the two that deem the SUV to be the inferior one. It boasts of fewer horses in the SUV avatar but there seems to be no price difference in the three standard trims on offer.

2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 - Driven

2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 - Driven

This luxurious SUV is a good package overall but sits in a weird niche of its own

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is based on the standard Mercedes GLS SUV. It costs twice as much as the GLS but is a lot more premium and plusher. The Maybach-affiliation to the SUV puts it right at the top with the likes of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the Bentley Bentayga. It isn’t as expensive as the British brands, but comes with enough tech and luxuriousness to keep you happy if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. It comes with a V-8 engine under the hood to help it propel to 60 mph in less than four seconds. The looks, however, isn’t the GLS600’s strong suit.

While it seems a good package overall, will a Bentayga or a Cullinan customer consider the GLS600? Or will a standard GLS customer upgrade to it, for that matter?

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone

This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is the GMC Syclone in all its glory

The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.

In case the Syclone still has the power to unearth some nostalgia for you, here’s a video that will refresh your knowledge on the performance pickup truck.

This Angry-Looking Amphibious Tank Will Have You Begging For The Zombie Apocalypse

This Angry-Looking Amphibious Tank Will Have You Begging For The Zombie Apocalypse

This tank weighs over 17,000 pounds but can hit speeds of up to 87 mph!

Amphibious vehicles have always garnered enough attention and there are already quite a few in the market today. It used to be for fun and small swims in the past, but amphibious vehicles now seem to have a bright future, thanks to companies like HighLand Systems which is building them for more than merry rides.

The Ukraine-based manufacturer has developed a mean-looking vehicle called Storm that is built as a “multi-role armored vehicle, designed for use in a wide range of specialist military and civil applications”. Now, if only we could have a zombie apocalypse so it could prove its mettle! Oh, wait. Did I say that out loud?

Look Quick - Here’s the Lamborghini Urus Evo Testing On Public Roads!

A mightier Lambo SUV is on its way

Lamborghini has started the development of the Urus Evo as spy photos of a camouflaged prototype have started to come into circulation.

The testing phase is still in the early stages so don’t expect the Urus Evo to debut at least until the latter part of 2021 or well into 2022.

If Lamborghini Really Wants People to Off-Road The Urus, It Should Look Like This

If Lamborghini Really Wants People to Off-Road The Urus, It Should Look Like This

Or maybe the Urus would make a prime candidate for a Dakar-style conversion

Back when Lamborghini was still teasing the Urus, we were served with a video that showcased the SUV’s Sabbia mode. By the way, Sabbia is the Italian word for sand. For the video, Lamborghini took a pre-production to Dubai, where it was let loose to raise clouds of dust to our entertainment.

Since then, the Urus has established itself a top seller in Lambo’s range and we are willing to bet that no customer took it off the beaten path. Not with the intent to genuinely punish it, that it. Which might change if this digitally rendered off-road kit gets made.

Check Out the Ford F-150 Electric As It Plays In The Snow

It looks quite comfortable even in extreme weather conditions

Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is out of the box, the company can focus (pun unintended) on developing the electric version of the truck. It’s been in the works for quite some time now, but the first time we saw it in action – and that also officially confirmed its presence – was when Tesla challenged it to a towing capacity test and the electric F-150 allegedly towed over a million pounds. Apart from that, the company teased the truck a few months back along with the announcement of the new Rogue facility.

But, it seems like the company has already starting hyping it up. Ford released a teaser video that showcases the electric F-150 playing on ice like it’s no one else’s business.

It’s been a while since FoMoCo’s train-pulling PR stunt came to further hype the arrival of the all-electric Ford F-150. As Ford has been rather tight-lipped lately about its full-electric pickup truck, we thought we’d have a look at what we know up until this point and what we should expect expect from the electric F-150. Here’s what we can report for the time being.

Frank Stephenson’s Review of the Tesla Cybertruck Is What Reviews Are Meant to Be

One year from its arrival, the Cybertruck is still a hot discussion topic

Those of you that are familiar with Frank Stephenson’s ever-growing YouTube channel know the former designer’s blunt, straight-to-the-fact manner of giving the verdict on a particular design. Only this time around, he dissects the Tesla Cybertruck, one of the most polarizing cars to reach the public’s eye in recent times.

The Cybertruck was unveiled more than a year ago and in typical Musk fashion, it shook the internet then split it in two: those that loved the edgy pickup and those that loathed it. Care to know Franks’s Stephenson’s opinion?

2020 Nissan Frontier - Driven

2020 Nissan Frontier - Driven

The 2020 Frontier looks the same, but comes with a new engine and transmission, and a steep price hike

Nissan Frontier is considered to be one of the best workhorses you can buy today. It never had any oomph factor and was happy being in its comfort zone as a work truck. It has remained pretty much the same for 15 years and Nissan never bothered to bring in a new generation because, well, why fix something that ain’t broken?

Given the long wait, everyone expected the next-gen Frontier to get a complete makeover inside out. The Japanese automaker still hasn’t brought out the new generation, but it decided to give us a glimpse of the future by plonking in a new engine and transmission in the same old body.

The new engine and gearbox come at a cost; the cost being $8,000. The starting price of the truck has gone up considerably and a lot of us were confused if it’s worth the hike or not. So, here’s our take on the 2020 Nissan Frontier that arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters in the PRO-4X trim finished in a Blue exterior shade.

The 2022 GMC Hummer Is Billed As a SuperTruck, But Is It Really?

The 2022 GMC Hummer Is Billed As a SuperTruck, But Is It Really?

The reincarnated moniker returns as a supertruck with a ton of drool-worthy goodies, super-high price tag

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?

2022 GMC Hummer EV - Highlights and Photo Gallery

The long-awaited GMC Hummer EV has finally made it’s debut, and it comes to the party with a lot of noteworthy features and some pretty impressive performance. According to GMC, the new Hummer EV will be power by (and as expected) GM’s new Ultium batteries and the new Ultium Drive electronic motors. The Hummer will feature a total of three electric motors that, according to GMC, will deliver and impressive 1,000 horsepower and a “GM-estimated 11,500 pound-feet of torque.” It all reality, it’ll probably put close to 900 pound-feet to the ground, but we’ll leave that discussion for another time. GMC has offered up some pricing and trim information with the entry-level model commanding $79,995, but it comes with just two electric motors. It’ll be coined the “EV2” and will launch in spring of 2024. It will be preceded by the EV2x in 2023 (the lowest model that can do the CrabWalk) and the Hummer EV3X, which will be available in Fall of 2020 with a $99,995 price tag.

Check out the highlights and gallery below to learn more about the Hummer EV and see just what it looks like!

Toyota’s Name For Its New Moon-Ready Off-Roader Is Far From Surprising

You Can’t Send An Off-Road Toyota To the Moon Without It Wearing a Cruiser Badge

Toyota is a company deeply rooted in habit. It’s been steadily pushing hydrogen as an alternative fuel source, and let’s not even get started on how it has to slap a TRD badge on almost everything it can. This “habit” in mind, however, is exactly why the name Toyota has chosen for its new moon-ready off-roader makes so much sense that we can’t believe we didn’t predict it. It’s called the Lunar Cruiser, and while that makes sense from a general perspective, there’s actually more thought that went into the name than you might think.
