The Noble M500 Harkens Back to Simpler Times

It will deliver 550 horsepower and will be cheaper than the M600

For the past 12 years, Noble’s only production car was the M600.

Now, four years later, those plans are getting closer to reality, and the M500 is about to enter production. Initial details suggest that the first customers will get their cars before the end of 2022 and that the M500 will be priced at £150,000 (a little over $200,000 at current exchange rates).

Lexus And JAOS Corporation Create Off Road LX For 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

Lexus And JAOS Corporation Create Off Road LX For 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

It will offer new CFRP parts and a new set of wheels

When Lexus launched the new LX luxury SUV everyone was impressed by how good it looks and how luxurious the interior is. However, we have to admit the LX does not exactly excel when it comes to its off-road capabilities. For example, the U.S. will only get the F Sport model that will come equipped with only one rear Torsen limited-slip differential.

The Japanese market is a lot luckier: it will also get an LX Offroad trim equipped with three locking differentials. For the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus tries to see how far these off-road capabilities of the LX can be improved and it came up with a one-off edition developed in cooperation with JAOS Corporation.

The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.

Bentley Flying Spur Shows It Can Run With Supercars On The Autobahn

Toyota Elevates The Tundra Pickup Truck With A New Flagship Trim Called The ‘Capstone’

The Tundra Capstone will come with the hybrid engine and in the CrewMax body style as standard

The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out a few months ago with an insane amount of changes. The Japanese truck is known for its tough build and reliability, and those were a couple of reasons why the automaker was able to milk it for 14 long years without any major change. But, the company brought in the new Tundra for the 2022 model year with a lot of changes on the outside, inside, and under the hood. Just when it looked like the hype behind the truck had gone down, Toyota decided to do something about it.

The automaker revealed a new flagship trim in the already crowded lineup called the ‘Capstone’. It will be the apex trim in Tundra’s portfolio and is expected to start at over $60,000. The top-grade will arrive in Spring this year.

Certain Chevrolet Models Will Lack A Very Common Safety Feature

And it’s no thanks to the ongoing global chip shortage

The ongoing global chip shortage has certainly led manufacturers to do weird measures to swim through the tide. In 2021, BMW has removed touch screen on certain models, while some brands won’t even build a car at all if it did not come with the necessary chips. Chevrolet, on the other hand, thinks that deleting the Rear Park Assist feature will help them manage the shortage in chips.
