The gas plug-in T-Prime GTE Concept follows the diesel plug-in CrossBlue Concept as Volkswagen is getting ready to launch its full-sized three-row hybrid SUV. This time, we’re looking at a combined output of 375 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque with an electric range of 31 miles. Can it make SUV-crazed Americans…
The Maserati Levante SUV will ship soon with a 3.0-liter V6 in two tunes. But since the vehicle’s built on the same platform as the Quattroporte, couldn’t it also fit that car’s 528 horsepower V8? Survey says “yes!”
Recovering a stuck truck is serious business; there’s a lot of weight and energy at work and if you don’t take safety seriously you can end up like these idiots: dodging a flying steel projectile for dear life.
Off-road outfit Daystar has developed one of the first lift kits for the new Jeep Renegade. Combine that with a bunch of lights and tubes attached to the little car’s body, and the Italian compact crossover starts to look pretty mean.
Sources say a bigger BMW SUV than we’ve ever seen is due in 2018, with an ultralux version in the works as well.
Last week somebody leaked some beautiful photos of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, the off-roadier version of Jeep’s luxury SUV. Now that the company’s released the official brochure we can see what this rig’s got besides pretty red tow hooks.
The BMW X5 is advertised as off-road capable, but come on—you’d have to do something crazy like hacking all of the bumpers off for steel tubes. Throw a cage in there. Tires like dragonskin and, wait, no, some dude actually did that.
Pictures of what is most definitely the new off-road oriented 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk have just surfaced. No 707 horsepower Hemi engine in this baby, but it sure looks good blazing through the desert.
Audi’s new SQ7 TDI comes with 429 horsepower and 663 lb-ft thanks to an electric compressor, two turbochargers and a trick 48‑volt electrical subsystem. They say this wonderdiesel is also “ideally suited for markets such as the United States.” The way things are going, we’ll see about that, but the SQ7 is still very…
Do you want to know which inexpensive family hauler is actually the safest, or just watch two cars you hate joust to the death? Either way, this is worth watching.
Nissan’s enormous old-school truck-style SUV is back after a long hiatus; the 2017 Nissan Armada will basically be the peasant-spec Infinti QX80. Don’t count on it being “cheap,” but it sure looks sharp.
There three things you need to drive across a river like this; a diesel 4WD, a snorkel intake, and a heavy set of balls.
Jonathan Ward’s outfit ICON 4X4 takes ratty old Land Cruisers and completely retools them. We’re talking scratch-built frames, huge supercharged V8s, and painstaking attention to detail with stratospheric price-tags to match. We figured nobody could bare to beat up on a vehicle like that. We figured wrong.

The Camel Trophy was a big, bad off-road endurance challenge Land Rover used to put on every time they felt like showing off new equipment. In 1998, and for the first time ever, that included a plucky little crossover. Things got... “radical?”
Somebody asked Jeep CEO Michael Manley point-blank if he could put the (in)famous 707 horsepower Hellcat engine in a Jeep Grand Cherokee. His response: “Not only can I put a Hellcat motor in one of those for you, I’m going to bring that to market before the end of 2017.”
