Liberty Walk has a Body Kit for the Mercedes G-Class and the Suzuki Jimny at the Same Time
Suzuki hit the jackpot with the overachieving Jumny when the lastest generation made its debut. Everybody adores it. It is a car that you could proudly drive to a car meet, and people would gather around to witness the awesomeness of a raw, off-road ready, tiny machine from Japan. Liberty Walk saw an opportunity with the Suzuki Jimny, and they released a new body-kit. Yup, a Liberty Walk body-kit for the new Suzuki Jimny. We live in an awesome time.
You know what? The body kit is much the same as what one could order for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. It looks similar. It is not sized as such, of course, but it’s strikingly similar. As I noted in my first review about the Jimny, this one is much like a baby G-Class.
As Liberty Walk gearheads obviously live deep within car stardom, they revealed two similar kits for two similarly awesome cars that are dramatically different in size. This is actually the first time that Liberty Walk devised a body kit for a truck - one for the G-Class, and the other for the Jimny.
2018 Volkswagen Grand California

Scheduled for live unveiling at the Dusseldorf Caravan Salon that will start later this month, the Volkswagen Grand California is a production version of the last year’s concept and it is every bit of awesome as you may imagine. Forget about the Airstream, or anything similar. This is better, but you can’t have it because Volkswagen Commercial vehicles aren’t available in the U.S.

Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000
Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Ranger is set to return to American dealerships after a very long absence. However, pricing and some important information remained a mystery. Now, the truck’s configurator showed up earlier than expected on Ford’s official website, revealing cab options and specific pricing. I say earlier than expected because Ford has taken the page down shortly after it made headlines.

The ‘Limited’ trim of the F-150, expected to hit the roads later this year, gets a bigger engine from the Raptor. There’s a lot more to the eye than just the engine adaption, but will this affect the Raptor’s sales in any way?
Jeep Could Be Working on a Hellcat-Powered Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer

2019 BMW X7
When BMW joined the SUV market with the X5 back in 1999, little did we know that the German manufacturer will become such an important player in this segment. But in a little more than a decade, the Bavarian brand has launched no fewer than four different crossovers. Come 2018 and a flagship X7 is ready to join the lineup.
The Bavarian brand made an announcement about the X7 in 2014, when it revealed that it will be built at the company’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, which also produces the X3, X5, X5 M, X6, and X6 M models. There’s no word as to when the X7 will make its public debut, but it should break cover in the second half of 2018, most likely at the Paris or Los Angeles Auto Show. When it arrives in showrooms, it will become BMW’s largest offering yet and will enable the German manufacturer to compete against SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover, and even the Cadillac Escalade.
Meanwhile, we have the X7 Concept, the brand-new X5, and a few X7 prototypes to give us some info on the upcoming SUV.
