Okay, so the 2017 Ford Raptor showed its compromises when I used it as a long-distance towing vehicle. But the compromises all seem worth it when your lazy butt only has 30 minutes to get down a rocky, dirty trail that Google Maps says should take an entire hour.
A Texas grass farmer (yes, actual grass, not weed, which we call “pot”) just had about 25 grand worth of crop destroyed by hooligan off-roaders, KRGV Channel 5 News reports. Of all the places to go hooning, they find the one guy who actually makes a living from the grass. Yikes.
America’s thirst for SUVs and pickup trucks cannot be quenched. Sitting atop that mountain of success is Jeep, the cash cow of Fiat Chrysler, set to diversify into even more vehicles soon. Luckily, gas will stay cheap forever, so here is the Jeep Wrangler pickup truck the world has been clamoring for.
When civilians get their vehicles stuck in mud pits, they’ve got to find someone with a truck (or tractor) and tow strap to give them a tug. But when Air Force airmen get their rigs stuck, they’ve got much cooler options.
Today we start a series called “Engines You Should Know”, in an effort to enlighten the world about the best, worst and most notable powerplants ever used to propel automobiles. In the first installment, I’ll talk about one engine that doesn’t get nearly enough credit: the Vortec 4200 inline-six found under the hood…
There are no words for this calamity.
Imagine driving along, minding your own business and then seeing this on the highway.
Three-row SUVs are all the rage these days, and not even because people need all those seats—they’re just nice to have. You know what else is all the rage these days? Jeeps. And not because people need the off-road capability—it’s just nice to have. So what better way to give people capability they don’t actually need…
XP1K4 is the fourth installment of an insane stunt series featuring a heavily modified UTV and RJ Anderson, quite possibly the best and bravest person driving these jacked-up farm buggies right now. The whole video’s nuts, but the backflip will straight blow your brain up.
Well, it was bound to happen at some point: Volkswagen’s third addition to its electric concept car family is the I.D. Crozz. Because it’s a crozz-over! Haaaa.
This monster truck just did a handstand. A handstand! Another truck did a front flip a few weeks ago. What more could you ask for? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Old Nissan 240SXs are considered prime candidates for turning into drift cars because they’re rear-wheel drive, everywhere, and easy to work on. But the downside to being popular for drift duty is that, well, a lot are getting wrecked and prices are going up. Lucky for you, there’s a workaround.
The Chevy Tahoe RST has GM’s excellent enormous V8, Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride and a dechrome treatment. Sounds like a solid SUV with just enough athletic pretenses to be entertaining. It’s just a little hard to see through all that tire smoke the Jeep Trackhawk’s making.
Here it is, officially, the Toyota FT-4x Concept. And yes, it was conceived after some Toyota people got together with some “outdoorsy millennials in the Bay Area” (actual quote). But bad #brand aspirations aside, the concept is actually pretty cool. No, I wouldn’t own it. But I would loot the shit out of one given…
New cars should always look better than older versions of themselves. For some reason, Infinit has let the giant QX80 SUV look like an unpleasant stage on the cover of an Animorphs issue. The new QX80 Monograph concept previews a much less unfortunate future.
