There’s still no full-on Volvo XC90 T8 Polestar, but the Swedish skunkworks now offers an “Optimization Package” for the hybrid SUV that bumps output to 421 horsepower and a little over 500 ft-lbs of torque. Torque is good.
Jaguar and Land Rover have been one company for years, but the division of design has always been pretty simple: Jaguar does luxury cars, Land Rover does luxury SUVs. The line started to blur with the intro of the F-Pace, and it looks like that trend is going to continue.
The Mercedes G-Class is The Simpsons of cars– built on great bones, but surviving so long it’s evolved into a caricature of itself. Well wallow no more hardcore G-fans: the 2017 G350d Professional is wiping the slate clean (and muddy) and starting over. The G just got great again.
Australia is a beautiful, vast country with hardly anybody living it. That’s why some 70 percent of the landmass has no cell coverage. But there are still enough people around to try and come up with a creative strategy for backcountry communication.
Thirty years ago a Chevy Suburban cost about $12,500, about twice that in today’s money, with a higher payload capacity and lower curb weight than a 2016 model. Today you’re hard-pressed to find a new Suburban under $50,000. Here’s an infographic to explain how the ultra-plush current model lines up to it’s…
Škoda, the best Volkswagen Group brand that Americans can’t buy, recently announced it will get into the seven-seat SUV game with a new vehicle called the Kodiaq. And in Kodiak, Alaska, the locals and mayor were so excited they decided to get in on the action by renaming their town for a whole day.
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.
