As someone who spends a decent amount of time taking his Jeep Cherokee out on the trail, it is always disappointing to see a 4×4 that never sees a lick of dirt. You have to laugh when you see a lifted truck, covered in chrome, and you know that it has never been off the pavement once in its life. The truck you see here might be one of the worst offenders.
The Russians are a hardy bunch, and are often forced to endure some of the world’s toughest conditions. This might shed some light on what is perhaps their best contribution to the driving world: the Lada Niva. Designed to function in the harshest regions on earth, it has been providing soldiers, police officers, journalists, and adventurers with tough, reliable transportation for almost 40 years.
On Tuesday, Consumer Reports published a study on the 20 worst-scoring cars available right now. The list is full of economy cars with middling reputations, like the Smart ForTwo, Chevrolet Spark and outgoing cars like the current Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. Two Jeeps were on the list as well, and while we could understand the low ranking of the soon-to-be-replaced Jeep Patriot, we’re left scratching our heads at the low score of the iconic Jeep Wrangler.
The ultra-adorable Jeep Renegade is the latest off-roader in a long history of Jeep 4x4s. But there’s a problem — people are critical as to whether the Renegade has the merit to wear the Jeep badge with pride. But before you make judgement on the mini-SUV, here’s seven important facts you should know:
Is America ready for an Italian-built baby Jeep? We better be, because it’s here, and it’s pretty freakin’ adorable. The 2015 Jeep Renegade just hit the web ahead of its official reveal in Geneva later this week.
We Americans love the Jeep Wrangler for its ability to drive just about anywhere, and its incredible versatility. Some may even call it an automotive swiss army knife. Across the pond, there is another vehicle of equal versatility– the Land Rover Defender. The venerable off-roader is quite useful, and even more so when converted into any of the vehicles below.
Though many of us regard golf as something of a hobby (or source of occasional frustration), Bubba Watson calls it his profession. So what does the 35-year-old professional golfer do for his own hobby? He collects various modes of transportation, and pretty badass ones at that.
In the early days of Top Gear, host Jeremy Clarkson reviewed many cars that would go on to become future classics. One of the most shining examples is this December, 1992 episode, where Jezza got behind the wheel of the GMC Syclone, which predated the Ford F-150 Lightning in the world of hot-rod pickups.
It may look like a bit of James Bond tech, but the folks at SkyRunner are trying to bring this flying dune buggy to life– for a price. The SkyRunner is part desert off-road vehicle, part ultralight, and for most application you only need a light sport pilot’s license.
For years, some automotive experts have lauded the benefits of diesel. Though it was slow to catch on, it is the fueling method I have often recommended to those looking for improved fuel economy, but without removing performance from the equation. Apparently truck buyers are listening, as the Ram truck brand has just announced it sold 8,000 diesel trucks in just three days– filling the initial run of production.
