The YouTube channel Car Question tests the all-wheel drive systems in various soft-roaders with a “diagonal test,” which involves taking each car up a ramp at an angle. Some of these car-based SUVs and minivans were clearly not designed to go off-road, but that just makes watching them flex out and spin their wheels…
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is more about style than speed. And while it can go off-road, it doesn’t really love to. But make no mistake—this is a brave car that manages to stand out in today’s bland, busy and boring flock of medium-sized crossovers.
A complete illustrated owner’s manual and user guide to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler leaked over the weekend on JL Wrangler Forums. While Jeep’s reps have declined to confirm its authenticity, there’s very little doubt that it’s the real deal. Here are the most interesting facts and functions we found in it.
If you have an Erector Set laying around somewhere, congratulations! You’re properly equipped to make an accurate scale model of a new military vehicle concept, the Partisan One. The Partisan One is a rugged, wildly basic 4x4 that’s built from a simple frame of right angles and bolt-on parts. It’s supposed to be…
Over the weekend the International Committee of the Red Cross tweeted a video of three MAN KAT 1 cargo trucks slogging through a “road” that looks more like a river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The trucks are towing each other, and seem to be moving under their own power at the same time.
Just a month after announcing that every new car after 2020 will be electrified, Land Rover has announced its first-ever production plug-in hybrid for the U.S. with the new Range Rover Sport.
Back in the 1970s, AM General—American Motors Corporation’s renaming of Kaiser Jeep’s “Defense and Government Products Division”—built an electric mail carrier Jeep called the DJ-5E “Electruck.” It was so advanced, NASA conducted a bunch of research on it, even referring to the Jeep as “state-of-the-art.”
We had some leaked pictures of the Rezvani Tank earlier, but now that the independent California carmaker has officially released pictures and details about the car, we can see a lot more. And the biggest thing I’m seeing is that this is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a Hemi swap and a body that looks like it should…
The current Suzuki Jimny is as close to a modern day World War II Jeep as exists on this earth, which is to say: it’s an off-road god. And if that’s not enough to have you lusting over the Japanese 4x4 masterpiece, just look at Indian Autos Blog’s renderings of the 2018 model. It’s perfection.
Have you ever been joking around about something, and somehow, though you didn’t intend it at all, the joke you made turned out to be a better idea than whatever the hell you were trying to make fun of? I think that’s sort of what’s happening here in this late ‘80s Dodge Ram 50 commercial.
The body mounts of a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup failed today after a mechanical failure caused the driver to lose control of the truck. The end result is that photo you see above: the cab completely separated from the frame.
It is time. We knew the luxo-truck onslaught that’s been wreaking havoc across this great nation was going to bring us to this moment. But now, it’s finally here: Ford has thrown down the gauntlet with its new “Super Duty Limited” line, whose crown jewel is an F-450 that can cost over $100,000.
The 2017 Ford Raptor has been out for months now, and just about everyone who’s driven it has been impressed. It’s easy to appreciate immense power, but a lot of this truck’s most magical wizardry happens with gearing and electronic controls.
Around 5:30 a.m. this morning, a police officer noticed a stopped 18-wheeler on the boardwalk in Ventnor City, New Jersey, later learning that it had traveled over two-and-a-half miles on the boardwalk. The truck’s driver had “zero explanation” as to why, Ventnor City Police Chief Douglas H. Biagi told PhillyVoice.
Driving a Brabus-modified six-wheeled Mercedes G-Wagen might make you feel like King Of The World, but you ain’t parking that bedazzled brick in front of this guy’s casino, bud.
I think the Ford Raptor, with its own name scribbled all over it in screaming font and its massiveness and its 450 horsepower and its long-travel shocks, is profoundly silly. I mean, I get its appeal in, like, an off-road sense. But I couldn’t imagine that anyone would need more than that—let alone for over $100,000.…
The Ford F-150 Lightning was a high-performance on-road pickup truck that existed solely to do donuts and sing songs of eight cylinders. And it was wonderful, and we miss it. But even as everyday Ford trucks get faster, there’s no real 2017 Lightning. So a dealer in Georgia is making its own.
Tesla chief Elon Musk has just tweeted that an unveiling and test drive of the electric car company’s first semi truck is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 26. Not sure what that means for production plans, but “test ride” sounds promising.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations has turned out some pretty slick shit in its relatively short life so far; the Range Rover Sport SVR and Jaguar F-Type SVR are both filthy tarmac-torturers. But given Land Rover’s adventure pedigree we’ve been waiting for an off-road equivalent, and it looks like the…
