What Is SHERP the Ark?! Check Out This Extreme ATV

According to the manufacturer, it’s not actually a sport utility vehicle—it’s an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). Whatever you call it, SHERP the Ark 3400 is impressive. Earlier this year on Top Gear America, Jethro Bovingdon got to—throw?—one of these 10-wheeled beasts around when the guys were comparing $250,000 luxury SUVs in Colorado. Where SHERP (The...

A new limited-production pickup truck is strutting its stuff out of the Mopar Custom Shop at Fiat Chrysl—we mean, Stellantis. It’s called the Mopar 2021 Ram 1500 Special Edition, and it’s best you dash any hopes that slapping the Mopar name on Ram’s Hemi-powered 1500 might result in a muscle street truck with beefed-up performance, an athletic stance,...

Florida Police Seeking Driver of Drawbridge-Jumping Hyundai Santa Fe

Thousands of miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico, the driver of a Hyundai Santa Fe has attempted to mimic Santa’s sleigh. The SUV crashed through traffic-control arms as a drawbridge in Daytona, Florida, was raising and jumped the gap to the other side.
