Hennessey’s 1000-HP Hellcat Jeep Trackhawk Does 0-60 in 2.7 Seconds

Hennessey just released a video of its HPE1000 Trackhawk trouncing the quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds at 132 mph. While those are some wildly impressive numbers, the real shocker is the car’s 0-60 time: Just 2.7 seconds. That’s right—this massive family-sized SUV can get to 60 mph quicker than a brand-new M5. The video can be […]

Mercedes-AMG Will Stop Selling V12 Cars

Mercedes-AMG might be famous for its V8s, but its 6.0-liter V12 sits at the top of the food chain. For now. Car and Driver reports that AMG will soon phase out its three V12-powered models, the S65, SL65 and G65, in favor of a different sort of flagship. AMG boss Tobias Moers broke the news […]

The VW Up! Gti Is The Real Replacement For The Original Golf Gti

The modern Golf GTI is fantastic to drive, but it’s grown considerably over the years. Gone is the pure, lightweight chassis and simplistic setup of the very first GTIs. But don’t worry, Volkswagen still makes a car remarkably similar to the Mk1 and Mk2 cars: The Up! GTI. The Up! is Volkswagen’s smallest car, and […]

The 2019 GMC Sierra

The 2019 GMC Sierra Has a Carbon-Fiber Box and a Wacky Two-Piece Tailgate

Last year, we learned that GM would start using carbon fiber in its pickup trucks, but when the new Silverado debuted earlier this year, there was none in sight. Apparently the General was saving the exotic material for GMC, specifically the new 2019 Sierra 1500. It debuts today with an optional carbon-fiber box, plus one […]

Chevy has unwrapped the new 2018 Traverse RS ahead of the Chicago Auto Show, putting a face to a vehicle we had details about last January.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Diesel First Test

When we tested the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox last year with its base 1.5-liter gas turbo-four, we came away with mixed feelings. The engine was good, but the transmission frequently wanted to get to the highest gear, kicking you out of the turbo-four’s powerband. Now, we’ve got another 2018 Equinox, this one powered by a 1.6-liter […]
