Volkswagen confirmed our high hopes of developing a hardcore Golf hatchback variant based off of the R400 concept, named for its 400 hp, almost two years ago. New reports suggest we may finally see it hit production sometime this year, now dubbed the Golf R420.
Of all the automotive fantasies, a Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is high on the internet’s wish list. We’ve heard rumors both ways about this before, but now The Detroit News says they have confirmation straight from Jeep’s CEO Michael Manley and his corporate overlord Sergio Marchionne.
Following the rumor that Buick may bring a wagon variant of the next-generation Regal to the U.S. and China earlier this year, a new trademark filing suggests the company may be serious with its intentions, and even have a cool new name for a sleek Sport Wagon.
This morning somebody decided the internet was going to talk about a revival of Honda’s dearly departed rear-drive purist sports car, the S2000. Maybe the prevailing malaise about the new NSX has Honda fans desperate for redemption but there’s no real reason to discuss this right now.
Jalops rejoice! For the thousands of you who complained about the 991 GT3 going two-pedal only, Porsche is reportedly working on a manual transmission-only “GT” model with a focus on “driver involvement” rather than track times, for the handful of you that can actually afford it.
“When I see a Range Rover on the street, my blood boils, because we should be able to do a thing like that,” Fiat Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne reportedly just told Bloomberg. “And we will.” Them’s fightin’ words!
Since news broke this morning that Mercedes-Benz will build a mid-sized pickup truck, every comment I've seen has been "WTF," "stupid status symbol," or "why wouldn't they sell this in America?!" If those was your instinctive reactions, here's why you're wrong.
Volkswagen is crushing it in auto sales around the world, but their lineup just isn't deep enough for total domination of the US market. A statement by VW's Light Commercial Vehicle boss suggests that might change, possibly bringing Amaroks, Transporters, and(/or?) Caddys here.
It's true: Ford filed for a new trademark on the name "Bronco" just a few days ago. Now please stop interpreting that as the second (well, sixth) coming of the Ford Bronco. There's no indication whatsoever that that's the case.
A 2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ Kirkland Signature Edition for "Costco members only" sounds like a (pretty awesome) prank. But Chevrolet has confirmed they are indeed working with your favorite purveyor of enormous everything to co-brand a limited run truck. Because America! ...?
The Porsche Cayman GT4 is a car we've already determined is better than sex without even driving it. But the poor little Boxster has to feel a little left out, right? Well, maybe not.
Rumors of GMC doing a Wrangler rival have been floating around for months. GM's apparently just polled dealers about whether such a vehicle would sell, but nobody at the company will admit to new product plans. Others have tried and failed to beat Jeep at making Jeeps (Toyota, Suzuki) so what would GMC need to succeed?
We've known for a few weeks that an automaker would be holding an event with Microsoft at The Detroit Auto Show. We then learned, courtesy of Ford, that it would be them. Everyone believes a new Ford GT is coming to the Detroit Auto Show. Combine the two bits of news and we arrive at this plausible conclusion: the…
The 2015 Detroit Auto Show is going to be a mega for trucks. At least two hugely important new pickups will be revealed, but there are a few other interesting rumors interesting rumors we might see fulfilled at this month's event
I'll warn you in advance that this post is fueled entirely by speculation, my own hopes and dreams, and possibly too much Jalopnik-brand Brefass Scotch-infused eggnog. But it's a follow-up to last week's news that Alfa Romeo is doing their own roadster while Fiat will do theirs with the 2016 Mazda Miata platform.
Four Wheeler thought it'd be hilarious to photoshop the Ford Atlas concept into a small SUV and tell everybody: "2016 Ford Bronco!" It was funny, on April Fool's Day. But it keeps burbling back every time somebody's uncle posts it to Facebook with a casually racist, politically-charged caption. And it needs to stop.
GM trotted out this lifted, armored, diesel-powered 2016 Chevy Colorado ZR2 at last month's LA Auto Show and proved the company had the off-road market on their radar. Rumors suggested Chevy might actually the ZR2 happen in as little as three to six months, at least in Canada.
