What do you get when you mix up an X5, an Explorer, and throw in a dash of Durango? You get the 2016 Kia Sorento, that just made its US debut at the LA Auto Show.

The latest version of America's most iconic SUV gets the 2.3 Ecoboost from the Mustang and a bit of active aero for reduced drag. Of course you can still have one with real wood on your steering wheel!
The Ford Explorer Police Interceptor is the new darling of law enforcement agencies big and small, thanks to its equipment (and perp) carrying abilities, all-wheel drive, and intimidating hugeness. But the police SUV just got a black eye in the form of a federal investigation into its brakes.
The 24 Hours of LeMons is part motorsports, part theater. Nobody does the theater part better than Speedycop. You know, the guy who made the upside down Camaro. Well, here's a perfect Jurassic Park Explorer recreation from him. And it's going racing this weekend.

From Truck Yeah!: There was nothing particularly special about the first generation Ford Explorer, 'til it rolled with mother flippin' dinosaurs in one of the cinematic masterpieces of my generation.
