Jeep Teases Wrangler or Gladiator Sporting “392” Badge, Hinting at 6.4-Liter Hemi V-8 Power

The news lately has been wall-to-wall 2021 Ford Bronco, and that’s quite understandable. It’s going to be one of the most noteworthy new SUVs in recent memory. But while the Bronco’s been away, the Jeep Wrangler has been holding down the fort for open-air off-road-oriented SUVs. It helps that the Jeep already has a stacked powertrain options list, which...

Here Is the Ford F-150 Raptor SUV That Ford Never Built

Custom shops often take, shall we say, artistic liberties when building unique cars, and the results aren’t always good (for evidence, take a gander at some of the show cars from the SEMA aftermarket bonanza). This custom Ford Everest is a welcome exception, however, and gives us an idea what a Ford F-150 Raptor pickup could have looked like as an SUV—had...

Swede Emotion: The Koenigsegg Regera Takes the Spotlight in Action-Packed Video

Christian von Koenigsegg is clearly in need of a new creative outlet. The founder of the hypercar company that bears his name is seemingly so bored that he’s turned to making films about his cars. No doubt, Koenigsegg makes some stellar automobiles. But what we aren’t too sure of is Koenigsegg’s film-making chops. Still, with so many films on hiatus...

How Roadkill Happened, and Why It’s Must-See TV

“I’m Freiburger. That’s Finnegan. This is the show where we play with cars and you point and laugh.” And with that, David Freiburger launched Roadkill. Eight years and more than 100 episodes later, Roadkill is still going strong. In fact, it’s one of the most successful and widely watched automotive TV and video series ever, arguably second only to...

2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel Now Available to Order

Jeep said it would introduce a diesel-powered version of the Gladiator this year, and despite the world’s state of affairs, the automaker is keeping its word. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator diesel will hit dealerships in the third quarter of the year, and Jeep is now taking orders. As previously reported, the truck’s turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V-6 makes...

The Lincoln Corsair, Nautilus, and Aviator Catch Mono for 2020 and 2021

Lincoln brings the stylish Monochromatic package to its smaller Corsair, Nautilus, and Aviator crossover and SUV models for 2021—2020, in the Nautilus’s case—after originally introducing the kit on its flagship Navigator. As its name implies, the Mono package gives these American luxury vehicles a noir-appropriate look courtesy of black-painted wheels...

Hyundai Introduces Manual Transmission Without a Clutch Pedal—Is It Really a Stick Shift?

It’s hard to put a finger on exactly why driving a car with a manual transmission is so much fun. Is it the control you feel selecting your own gears, that visceral connection formed between human and machine? Is it the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing more work than 90 percent of other drivers on the road? Is it the challenge of gently feathering...

Genesis G70 Long-Term Update: And on the Seventh Day, He Drifted

(Editor’s Note: Normally, editor-in-chief Mark Rechtin’s long-term update would appear in this space. However, after Jethro Bovingdon, star of the Top Gear America series coming soon to the MotorTrend app, made off with our 2019 Genesis G70 for a couple weeks, we conscripted him to write this month’s installment.) When I was given the keys to the Genesis...

2020 Polaris Slingshot R First Drive

Everything about the Polaris Slingshot invites a reaction. What it is, what it looks like, who buys one, and how they accessorize it all produce hot takes made for a Twitter world. It’s fitting, then, that I finally found the words to describe my feelings about the Slingshot on Twitter. Author, journalist, and photographer Linda Tirado shared a piece...

Toyota RAV4 Prime vs. RAV4 Hybrid: 5 Reasons to Splurge on the Prime and 5 More to Get the Hybrid

Until now, the Hybrid was our clear favorite in the popular Toyota RAV4 lineup. Not only is it much more fuel efficient than the regular RAV4, it also offers a smoother ride. Now Toyota is rolling out another compelling entry: a plug-in hybrid RAV4. Dubbed the RAV4 Prime, this model has clear advantages and disadvantages compared with the RAV4 Hybrid....
