Ford Raptor… With the DNA of a Baja race truck, the new SuperCrew model will haul more people, is 500 pounds lighter and gets a 3.5 liter engine & 10 speed tranny, all of which means you can get lost deeper into the desert.
Nissan Titan Warrior Concept … Nissan got mean with the front end design, and then popped in a Cummins 5.0 V8 diesel for tons of torque & 37 inch tall off-road tires. Apropos to the name, the paint is called “Thunder.”
Lexus LC500… It “signals the dawn of a new era” design wise, Lexus said. A total of 467 horsepower from the 5.0-liter V8 with 389-lb ft of torque with a 10 speed transmission this should be an absolute blast to drive. It certainly meets Ako Toyoda’s challenge to his company to produce less boring cars and when the #1 guy speaks…
Porsche 911 Turbo S … Think 580 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque from a company that really knows what to do with those numbers. Not to forget the 7,200 redline. All very breathtaking and how I would love to have a day on the Autobahn with one! Wouldn’t you?
Kia Telluride … “Purely conceptual”, said Kia about this handsome full-size luxury SUV that looks market ready. It would be positioned above the Sorento with three row seven passenger seating. If Hyundai is moving upscale with Genesis, why not Kia with Telluride?
Volvo XC90 .. The North American Truck/SUV of the Year award winner marks Volvo’s strong comeback in the U.S. market as it continues to rack up award after award. On an all-new platform, with new powertrain and semi-autonomous driving technologies, and oh, did I mention safety (!!!), Volvo’s seven passenger top of the line model deserves all the attention.
