Watch The Genesis GV70 Put Up A Good Fight Before Being Incarcerated By The Tesla Model Y
The GV70 is Genesis’ first compact-luxury SUV, and it is a fantastic package overall. It is based on the G70 sedan, which means it has a sporty cred to it. And, Genesis being a luxury brand, you get all the bells and whistles as well. There are two engine options on offer, one being a four-pot turbo engine, and the other, a twin-turbo V-6.
Sam from Sam ‘CarLegion’ brought in a V-6 GV70 to take on a Tesla Model Y for a couple of drag races and a rolling race. The Model Y, being an EV, was going to be the winner for sure, but did the GV70 put up a good fight before going down? Let’s find out.
Gobi Finish Is The Perfect Paint For The Gladiator And Wrangler
Gobi - named after the desert in Asia - joined Gladiator’s exterior color palette for the first time in 2020, and it has now returned for the 2022 model year. Also, the same finish is being offered for the 2022 Wrangler for the first time.
Priced at $495, the new Gobi finish joins other exclusive colors like Tuscadero, Gecko, or Nacho.
An Old-School Chevelle Wipes The Floor With A Jeep SRT For Supremacy
Old-school vs Modern muscle car face-offs are not that uncommon and people really dig them. But, when was the last time you saw a 60s brute take on a proper performance SUV. Well, this duel between a classic Chevelle and a modern-day performance family hauler is sure worth your time.
As ever, this video by the Wheels Channel on YouTube didn’t have the exact numbers so I’m going to run with the baseline specs to give you some context.
The Upcoming Mercedes EQE SUV’s Candid Spy Shots Reveal The Production Body
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE was launched at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show, and then, a few months later, we caught the first prototype of the EQE SUV out testing in the snow. We also found that there will be an AMG version for the next electric SUV.
But now, thanks to our spy photographers, we also get a clear look at the next EQE SUV. During a visit at a test facility outside of Mercedes hometown, Stuttgart, they stumbled into the electric EQE SUV being loaded into a truck.
2022 Renault Austral
Renault unveils its new hybrid SUV, the Austral, which is based on the new third-generation CMF-CD platform. It portrays Renault’s “Nouvelle Vague” which means “New Wave” in the global C-segment SUV markets. If you are familiar with the Megane E-TECH Electric and the Arkana, you will find the Austral to follow similar paths, which includes Renault’s new design language and feature-proof cabin. We think that this compact hybrid/electric SUV is targeting the new Kia Sportage in a lot of ways, bringing in updated tech and multiple powertrain options to soothe your needs. Let’s dive in for a closer look into Renault’s newest addition to its Global (excluding the U.S.) lineup.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor Configurator Has Gone Live And This Is How We Configured It!
Ford’s Bronco Raptor caused a lot of buzz when it finally broke cover last month. The online configurator is now live on Ford’s website, and I decided to give it a go. I was just curious to see how much would a fully spec’d out Bronco Raptor cost and how it’d compare to its chief competitor, the HEMI-powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392.
Peugeot Wants To Take On The Renault Arkana With The New 308 SUV Coupe
We’ve heard the first rumors about a possible Peugeot SUV Coupe in early 2022. The model is, of course, in its very first stages of development, and for now, there are a lot of rumors about a possible name for it. Monikers like 308 SUV, 3008 Coupe, or 408 are just a few of them. However, no matter what it will be christened, the new SUV Coupe will take on models like the Renault Arkana.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO Smiles With Tears In Its Eyes As It Helplessly Watches The Model X Plaid Destroy It
Ever since the Tesla Model S Plaid came out, it has been on a spree, embarrassing every other car it faces in straight-line races. Tesla came out with the performance Plaid version of its SUV, the Model X as well, sometime back. While it might not be as quick as its sedan sibling, it is still mighty quick to take on some of the hottest supercars from the present era. Its latest rival – or shall we say, a victim – is the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, and the Model X Plaid shows no mercy whatsoever.
2022 Buick Enclave
Judging a book by its cover is something we shouldn’t do, and it applies to us in daily life, including when we choose cars. This flagship seven-seater SUV is so much more than you thought it to be. The 2022 Enclave is not all-new, but has received a major facelift, which makes it look even more attractive on the outside. Although it uses the same drivetrain, which is the 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6, it never fails to offer punchy and refined drive quality. The interior is not as flashy as the X5 or the Q8, but the price tag of $42,800 makes the Enclave a better value proposition. If you are curious about its competitors, there is the Acura MDX, Mazda CX-9, and even the Volvo XC90. So, should you consider the 2022 facelifted Enclave, or other SUVs in the segment? We are here to let you know the full picture.
2022 Manhart MHX7 650
The BMW X7 is already about to receive an update and there is still no word on an M version. In fact, everyone already accepted the fact that there won’t be a BMW X7 M - as noted by BMW many times before. For those who want a more powerful BMW X7, Alpina is offering the XB7 - a model that delivers 89 horsepower and 37 pound-feet more than the BMW X7 M50i.
But, now there’s an even more powerful option available at your disposal - the Manhart MHX7 650 package for the X7 M50i, which delivers a total of 650 horsepower!
The Next-Generation Mercedes-Benz GLC Starts Dropping Camouflage
The current-generation Mercedes GLC-Class was unveiled back in 2015 as a replacement for the GLK-Class and as an SUV equivalent to the C-Class. Now, almost seven years later, the GLC is getting ready to enter its second generation.
A prototype was first caught testing in August 2021, then again playing in the snow back in January 2022, and now it looks like the testing continues. But, next to the usual very camouflaged prototypes, our spy photographers were also able to catch a GLC prototype being loaded into a truck without any camouflage, giving us a close look to the side of the SUV.
Updated 03/08/2022: Our spy photographers caught a new Mercedes-Benz GLC prototype out for some more testing in the snow. This new prototype drops the usual camouflage in favor of a new, more "marketing" one with all the Mercedes stars on the car. It also offers us a very good view of the shape of of the grille
Watch The Aston Martin DBX 707 Unleash Mayhem On The Bonkers Lamborghini Urus
You join us for this week’s Carwow weekend special on a damp runway for a Super-SUV shootout. Mat Watson is sat in Aston’s new and improved DBX, the 707. Meanwhile, an old friend has come to pay a visit with his brand new Lamborghini Urus. It is of course Yianni.
2022 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Edition 550
2022 BMW X5 Li
BMW is hard working on a facelift version for the current-generation X5. Prototypes of both, the standard and the M versions were caught testing out in cold weather. But it looks like BMW is not only busy preparing the facelift X5, but also a special version for the Chinese market.
The new BMW X5 Li will be offered in China starting April 2022 and there will be two trims available: X5 xDrive30Li and X5 xDrive40Li.
This Mansory P720 Is A Smurf Blue Mercedes-AMG G63 Built For China
Mansory is well known for coming up with unique creations for certain markets. Think about the latest Rolls Royce Cullinan or the Mercedes-AMG G63’s built for the United Arab of Emirates (UAE). Now, it’s time for China to get its own special Mercedes-AMG G63.
Named "China Blue", this unique AMG G63 was most likely built for a very rich Chinese person.
BMW X7 M50i vs BMW iX 50: For Once We Have An Electric vs ICE Drag Race That Isn’t Lopsided!
Mat Watson and his team from ‘Carwow’ arranged for a pretty cool race involving two German cars. On one side, we had the BMW X7 M50i, and on the other, the BMW iX 50. We’ve seen in the past that ICE cars and EVs from the same segment aren’t generally a good match as the EV is always quicker despite similar power outputs (instantaneous torque to the rescue!). But, these two SUVs seemed evenly poised and assured a race that wasn’t lopsided. The iX is expected to win, but not by huge margins. Do you think the X7 can score any wins here?
Someone Paid $250K On Bring-A-Trailer For This Spec’d Out 700-Mile K5 Blazer
After 41 bids for this Restomod Chevy Blazer, the hammer finally dropped at $250,000 on Bring-A-Trailer. Yes, you heard that right, a quarter of a million dollars. SandBox Motors based out of L.A. had the initial listing up on BAT.
Dubbed the ’Watchman’ this stunning resto-mod conversion was created by the Ringbrothers i.e Jim and Mike Ring, who hail from Wisconsin. Their clientele includes the likes of celebrities like Jay Leno. Here’s what makes this Blazer so special.
Here’s Your First Look At The First-ever Fully Electric Jeep SUV
Stellantis, which was formed in January 2021, is taking steps towards optimizing its development and production methods, as well as making EVs more attainable. While a company representative talked about a 30-percent better efficiency in CapEx R&D during the Stellantis 2030 Strategic Plan Presentation, Stellantis also took the opportunity to show us its first fully-electric Jeep, which will arrive in 2023.
The Ferrari Purosangue Comes Out In The Open To Show Everyone It’s Not A Traditional SUV
We’ve already seen a series of spy shots revealing the production body of the future Ferrari Purosangue - a model referred to as an FUV (“Ferrari Utility Vehicle”), because it definitely doesn’t have the actual shape of an SUV.
Now, the FUV was caught testing once again, wearing the same heavy camouflage, but this time it was playing in the snow.
A Ford Everest Raptor Isn’t off the Table
Following the reveal of the Ranger Raptor in late February 2022, Ford quickly pulled the sheets off the new Ford Everest – an SUV based on the Ford Ranger (so basically, a Ford Ranger converted into an SUV) with an all-new engine, three rows of seating, and an attractive go-almost-anywhere attitude. That attitude could soon change, though, as Ford is open to an Everest Raptor should there be a high enough demand for one.
Ford Debuts The Third-Gen Everest With A New Powerplant, Higher Towing Capacity, And New Features
Ford has launched the third-gen Everest. It is based on the new Ranger and comes with a lot of improvements on the inside, outside, and under the skin. The mid-size three-row SUV isn’t sold in the States, but it is quite popular in other countries. The latest Everest comes with a lot of new features and specs, thus making it an even-better proposition in the ever-growing segment.
Watch This 10-second Trackhawk Blow Muscle Cars To Dust
More SUVs are now hitting the track than ever before, and I’m not surprised. They are, after all, the most popular body style, currently on the market. But, these aren’t just any SUVs, they’re the high-performance kind.
In a recent video by the Drag Racing and Car Stuff Channel, you can watch a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, take on some pretty serious muscle cars. Now, as before, I don’t have the exact numbers folks, so I’m gonna run with the baseline figures here.
