I Hope This Chevy Trail Boss Means Roll Bars Are Making A Comeback

I initially dismissed the the 2015 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss press release because no ZR2, no care. Then I saw that roll bar! It’s definitely not a safety device but it is the first OEM pickup truck roll bar that’s come out since, I think, I’ve been old enough to read. Come on automakers, bring these babies back! » 8/21/15 1:54pm 8/21/15 1:54pm

Jumps, Crashes, Helicopters, Holy Crap This Movie Looks Awesome

I say King Of The Hammers is the best action sport you’re not watching. Maybe because you don’t feel like trucking out to the Mojave Desert and living with a pack of wild racers for a few day.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma: A Spicy Taco That Doesn't Taste All That New

Toyota has left their Taco sitting on the counter since 2005, and it has gotten stale. Nobody wants to eat a crusty taco, but that’s all there’s been on the menu for the longest time. By default, those hungry for a mid-size truck have had no choice but to clog their noses and scarf down what Chef Toyota was cranking… » 8/17/15 10:27am 8/17/15 10:27am

Range Rover VS. Range Rover Sport: Which Screaming LuxoTank Is For You?

Nothing stamps out and rivets-together an abstract concept like the Range Rover. It’s more than an SUV. It’s fancy. It’s important. It’s rolling royalty for god-sakes, man. It was good enough to put in the Louvre 40 years ago and now it’s better than ever. » 8/05/15 3:10pm 8/05/15 3:10pm

We Can't Let This Epic Off-Road Trail Be Closed Because It's Dangerous

Legend has it Forest Service Road 648, known as “Black Bear Pass,” was cut into the Rocky Mountains in the late 1800s by prospectors brave or crazy enough to go anywhere for gold.

'My Car's Stuck In A Hot Tub' Means Something Else In Moab

Off-roader Shannon Campbell and his family brought some of their extreme racing rigs to the same trail in we tested the 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro on.

Driving Australia's Most Challenging Off-Road Trail

For most of Cape York, the remote peninsula north of Cairns that runs parallel to the Great Barrier Reef, the nearest major city isn’t even in Australia, it’s in Papua New Guinea.
