2015 JEEP Moab Concepts Are Cooler Than Ever for Annual Easter Safari

Jeep’s off-road concepts for the yearly Easter Jeep Safari are usually some of the coolest from any brand all year. They not only have to be cool and inspiring, but generally have to be up to the task of off-roading in the extreme red rocks of Moab, Utah. Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts always play a big part in the upgrades for the concepts, and the same goes this year. A veritable rolling catalog, the Jeep Performance Parts catalog is incredibly deep — from off-road mechanicals to lighting to custom interior tech — there is something for every Jeeper. This …

2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG Crazy Colors Edition 16

2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG Crazy Colors Edition Makes USA Debut in Amelia Island

This G63 AMG option set took us by the eyeballs over the weekend in Amelia Island!  This dark red/blue/purple shade is a flip color — it changes from dark red to a deep indigo in different lights. This ‘Galactic Beam’ paint color is actually really cool on the G63 because there are so many hard corners and sharp panel changes. The blocky shape makes the color flip extra pronounced. The lower trims and roof are all a tasty gloss-black, which is actually surprisingly sexy on the big G-wagen. There are four other shades offered, and all bring an extra $15,000 …

HD Road Test Review – 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 ReviewINTRO Once or twice a decade, a new car or truck will come out and be so good, so likeable and so well-done that it can make all the other OEMs think hard about matching it. In the case of mid-size pickup trucks, that incredible new car is the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. In a segment that has been in the doldrums for a least five years, the new Colorado is good enough to have Ford and Ram scratching their heads — reviewing old emails with a search heading of “Ranger” or “Dakota.”  Why did we cancel …

2015 Aston Martin DBX Concept Is Surprise Geneva Crossover

Prepare to be stunned and perhaps aroused! This all-new Aston Martin DBX takes a second swing at an SUV from the Gaydon HQ of James Bond. But is Bond running the show at AML? Not at all. The new lead is Andy Palmer, poached from Nissan a few months ago and bringing his smart and hyper-productive product plans to the Aston range. At Geneva, Aston rolled out the Vantage GT3, the new Vulcan hypercar, a production announcement for the Rapide Taraf (now selling up to 200 copies worldwide), and this interesting DBX SUV. A high-riding GT car with two doors …

2016 Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro Trusts Locomotives and Submarines for New Diesel-Electric SUV Powertrain

As any fan of locomotives or submarines will tell you, the combination of diesel engines and hybrid battery tech is a match made in heaven. Endless research has determined that diesel-electric is the most efficient and powerful combination for heavy machinery. Typically, in the car business, diesel-electric power has been shunned because the combination is too expensive. Diesels are around a $4000 price premium above a gas engine, while hybrid components can add at least $5000 to a car’s wholesale price to make. But in a class like the large SUV segment, innovation is affordable if it can achieve huge …
