Suzuki Goes Back To Its Roots With A New, Boxy Jimny

Off-roading is not exactly Japanese automakers’ strongest suit, but that does not stop them from turning out some pretty decent off-roaders. In fact, folks like Suzuki managed to develop off-roaders that weren’t fuel guzzlers like Jeep and Land Rover does while still having the oomph for off-road duties. Speaking of which, one of Suzuki’s most iconic off-roaders is the Jimny, which the marque has been selling since its introduction in the 1970s.

Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

What’s your impression of a Jeep? Probably just a good, off-road family car, but never a speed demon. Well, that is until 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes around. Armed with a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine, this monster of SUV rockets from 0-60 (0-97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and ripped through the quarter mile in 11.6s. Astounding, indeed. That’s super duper quick for a SUV, but for the folks at Hennessey Performance, it is never enough. Continue reading Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

Rolls-Royce Cullinan Beckons You To Luxe Outside Of Urban Areas

When I saw the press release of Rolls-Royce much anticipated off-road capable luxury vehicle, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, I was taken aback.

This means, the British luxury maker is dead serious about its off-road adventure. The brand is excited about this vehicle like a father thrilled by his first born.

SEAT Made CUPRA A Standalone Brand, Unveiled A 670HP CUPRA E-Racer And A 296HP CUPRA SUV

If haven’t already heard, SEAT has split out CUPRA model to be an independent brand – probably as a show of its resolution in turning out performance rides. The first vehicle to bear the CUPRA badge is Ateca, a sporty SUV that, unlike most SUV, is no slouch in the performance. With 300 PS (about 296 horses) from its 2.0 TSI motor, the CUPRA Ateca has well over 100 horses over SEAT Ateca which, coupled with SEAT 4Drive traction system and a new 7-speed DSG gearbox, allows it wipe the century sprint in just 5.4 seconds and reach an un-SUV top speed of 152 mph.

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Has 600 HP And Looks Utterly Fabulous!

Pardon me for my excitement. While I am more of a patrolhead, I am equally drawn to electric drive too, especially one that has 600 horses with a stunning aesthetic to boot, like the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept Study. Unveiled at the 88th Geneva Motor Show, the Mission E Cross Turismo is as what its name suggests it to be: a concept study of an electrically driven cross utility vehicle (basically, sports utility vehicle, or SUV). Continue reading Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Has 600 HP And Looks Utterly Fabulous!

Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

Jaguar Land Rover group has an interesting project planned for 2018. The company has found one of the three original pre-production prototypes 4×4 that made their debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948. The vehicle was apparently bought by someone in the 60s and when it was found, it was in such a dilapidated state that it took a team of experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic months poring over the archives to determine that it is indeed the long lost vehicle, the vehicle that started it all. As part of the group’s 70th anniversary in 2018, the group will embark on a year-long meticulous restoration progress to bring the 48’ prototype back to its former glory. Continue reading Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

BYTON’s “Smart Intuitive Vehicle” Uses Face Recognition To Unlock Vehicle

This is it. The much anticipated entrant to the EV market BYTON’s first EV has finally been unveiled in Las Vegas, at the CES 2018. So, as speculated/guessed, it is indeed a SUV. No model name is associated it, though. The China-based EV maker simply refers to it as a ‘Concept’, but from the looks of it, it is hardly a concept; it looks like it is destined to roll off the company’s Nanjing plant in due course. Anyways, expect this mid-size “premium” SUV with sweeping roofline to be offered with two power options: a 200 kW single motor rear-wheel drive model with 400 Nm of torque and a 350 kW dual motor-equipped four-wheel drive model that turns out 710 Nm of torque.
