PostHeaderIcon Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

The 840-horspower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon stole the show at the 2017 New York Auto Show, but the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk certainly garnered a ton of attention. The highly anticipated an long-rumored Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is everything we hoped for and more, including that 707-horspower 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8, beefed-up TorqFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and reinforced full-time 4WD system. The Jeep even gets the Demon’s Torque Reserve system, helping launch five-passenger SUV to 60 mph in an astonishing 3.5 seconds!

Yeah, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk isn’t the most practical vehicle debuting at New York this year, but it’s by far the most practical Hellcat ever produced. Sure, the Charger Hellcat is a usable sedan with little draw-backs, but the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk offers 68.3 cubic feet of cargo volume and a respectable 7,200 pounds of towing capacity. Not to mention, this Jeep will likely do well in wintertime conditions with a set of proper tires, especially since its drive modes include a setting for snow.

Jeep engineers didn’t just shoehorn a Hellcat V-8 under the hood of an ordinary Grand Cherokee, however. The Trackhawk is heavily modified, sharing nearly no common powertrain parts with the standard Grand Cherokees. Even the 6.4-liter V-8-powered Grand Cherokee SRT version comes with less whiz-bang engineering.

Update 08/08/2017: Jeep has announced pricing for the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. It will start at $86,995, including the destination fee. Read more in the Pricing section below.

PostHeaderIcon Monterey Car Week Provides Yearly High-End Auto Culture Barometer

From auctions to car shows, parties to cruises, racing to meet-and-greets, Monterey Car Week has all the good stuff you’d expect from a world-class automotive event. Make no mistake – this isn’t some show and shine at the local fast food joint. This is the place where the finest machines on the planet get to romp amongst other high-dollar heroes, where supercars and antiques roll out for the shared enjoyment of scores of enthusiasts. Not that there’s anything wrong with a show and shine at the local fast food joint. Hell, I’ve been to more than my fair share of those. Rather, MCW takes things to a whole other dimension, creating a place where Ferraris and Lambos are almost as commonplace as Hondas and Toyotas. It’s in this environment that we can get an accurate reading on where the high-end automotive culture is currently sitting, and where it’s headed in the future.

We’re still more than week away from the kick-off gala at the Gordon McCall Motorworks Revival, but we’re already seeing some pretty interesting developments. For starters, Gordon McCall will host a variety of electric cars this year, including the Lucid Air and the Rimac Concept_One. While the traditional vintage aircraft and gas-burning supercars are also expected to show in abundance, the question is this – how quickly will the EV gain territory at events like Gordon McCall’s?

The auctions also raise an interesting question. All indications point towards a somewhat cooler collector car market following the record numbers we saw over the past few years. If we really are seeing a dip, it’ll be obvious when we get the final prices realized at the end of MCW.

And with so much of the car world changing so rapidly, how will the historic crowd react? Where will the crowds go for the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, and what will draw the eyes of the judges at the Concours d’Elegance? With big changes looming on the horizon, will the icons of the past become even more powerful?

Stay tuned as we ramp up our coverage of Monterey Car Week 2017.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Gordon McCall Motorworks Revival – Preview

Monterey Car Week 2017 is very nearly upon us, but before the first gavel can fall at one of the many high-end auctions, and before the judges can take the field at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, this annual automotive extravaganza kicks off with one helluva party. Known as the Gordon McCall Motorworks Revival, this is no ordinary get-together. Held inside and around several hangars at the Monterey Jet Center, the Gordon McCall event is known for its extravagance, indulgence, and elegance, a glamorous evening offering well-heeled enthusiasts the chance to peruse some of the finest machinery on the planet. It’s a high-end automotive lifestyle event filled to the brim with entertainment, fine cuisine, and top-shelf drinks, bringing together the worlds of real estate, fashion, yachts, jewelry, aviation, and of course, cars, all of which form a single, cohesive experience. Long story short, if it’s expensive, it’s sure to be here.

This year marks the 26th anniversary of the Gordon McCall event, and once again, it’s promising a selection of some of the most epic four-wheeled heroes to hit pavement. Last year, we got up close and personal with bedroom posters like the original Ford GT40, Mercedes-AMG SLS, Ferrari Enzo, Lykan Hypersport, McLaren P1 GTR, and Koenigsegg Agera XS. Private jets, WWII-era bombers, racecars, and vintage motorcycles filled the gaps. We even got to rub shoulders with automotive celebrities like Christian von Koenigsegg. Read on for a look at what’s to come from this year’s event.

PostHeaderIcon What is this Mysterious Sports Car Concept that Mercedes Will Debut at Pebble Beach?

The Pebble Beach Concours D’elegance takes place on August 20, so it’s just a matter of weeks before we get to lay eyes on some of the most gorgeous cars in existence. And, while some of our favorite celebrities are sure to make an appearance – think Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jay Leno, among others – we now have word that there will be an all-new sports car concept sporting a Mercedes badge making its world debut. The word comes thanks to a quick post on Instagram and Twitter of a video that gave us a peek inside a secretive meeting at the Advance Design Center in Sindelfingen, Germany.

Of course, the video post left a lot to the imagination and told us very little, but Gorden Wagener – the Chief Designer – says it will be “an icon or the brand” and that it’s sure to be a “big surprise.”

In the video, we can make out a sketch of a wheel that is undoubtedly for the new concept and a somewhat blurry glimpse as a sketch of a car. Unfortunately, however, we can’t make out much of the design cues. We know it will be a sports car, though, and considering they had sketches of the IAA concept, I suspect it will be related to that in one way or another. Wagener did make it a point to tell us that the front end was going to be different, though, so even if it has the same silhouette as the IAA, it will certainly sport some different design cues. So, just what can we expect from Mercedes at Pebble Beach? Well, I have a couple of ideas, so let’s take a look at the video, and talk a little more about it.

PostHeaderIcon I’m Super Excited For Monterey Car Week And You Should Be Too

When I was just a wee lad, I always found mid- to late-August to be a somewhat bittersweet time of the year. The summer is starting to wind down, the weather is starting to get a little colder, and you can’t turn around without seeing those gawd-awful “back to school” advertisements popping up everywhere. But now that I’m older and unburdened by the joy of three straight months of work-free bliss, I’m actually quite looking forward to it. The main source of my optimism – Monterey Car Week.

In case you were unaware, MCW is an annual extravaganza of metal and money, a swirling hurricane of gas-fueled, exhaust-barking, top-shelf auto enthusiasm. Held up and down the central coast of California, this is the place to be if you like it fast, beautiful, and outrageously expensive. A vast cornucopia of auto auctions, historic racing, cruises, and more fills the schedule beyond capacity, all culminating in the world-renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. If you’re anywhere close to the action, it’s your duty to attend.

And attend I will. TopSpeed is once again sending me to Monterey to cover this thing, and I can’t wait to jump in headfirst. But I gotta know – what do you wanna see, dear reader? Maybe high-dollar racers going fender-to-fender at Laguna Seca? Maybe million-dollar unicorns rolling off the auction block? Maybe four-wheeled heroes trying to parallel park? Tell us in the comments, and we’ll do our best to provide.

PostHeaderIcon BMW’s Frankfurt “Surprise” Could Be Any One Of These Models

BMW’s positioning itself to have a busy few months ahead with so many debuts on the table. Not that I’m wishing for lighter loads because the cars we’re expecting to see from Bavaria will likely be staples in the brand’s future lineup. Bimmer already confirmed plans to unveil the BMW Roadster Concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in two weeks. Now, the German automaker’s hinting at more “exciting surprises” to come, this time at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Obviously, BMW didn’t say what the surprise is going to be because that’ll defeat the whole purpose of the whole thing be a surprise. But company chairman Harald Krueger did drop this bombshell following statements he made about the company’s plan for a greener future in a recent conference call. So it is possible that this surprise has something to do with a model that will be a big part of that “greener future.” If it is, it narrows down the list of potential models that could star in this surprise, and since we’re always suckers for a little sleuthing work, we’ve pinpointed three models that could be Bimmer’s Frankfurt surprise.

PostHeaderIcon Six Decades of Racing History Headed to Laguna Seca

Every year, Laguna Seca plays host to some of the most legendary performance machines to ever take a racing line, recounting the glories of the past for the enjoyment of enthusiasts both young and old. It’s called the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, and it takes place during the annual orgy of metal and money known as Monterey Car Week. This year is lining up to be just as epic as always, with a long list of iconic race cars slated to appear for our mutual veneration.

Roughly 60 years of racing history will be on display, from a ‘50s-era Ferrari to a modern McLaren GT winner. “The yearlong celebration of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s 60th anniversary is brought to life in the Racing Through the Decades feature display that we are thrilled to share at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion,” says Senior VP of Event Operations at Laguna Seca Gill Campbell. “The visual element illustrates the history and importance of the race track and the privilege we have had in hosting some of the greatest cars and drivers in all of motorsports.” In addition to the opportunity to get up close and personal with cars in the pits, fans will witness hundreds of other historically significant racers dice it up on track, providing the appropriate soundtrack for such an event. In the meantime, continue reading to check out some of the featured cars on the docket.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Elantra GT

Hyundai introduced the Elantra for the 1991 model year, but at that time, even this now well-regarded model was considered a throw-away econobox at best. Hyundai has evolved as a brand a lot over the last 31 years, as has its long-running Elantra nameplate, which entered its sixth generation for the 2016 model year. As was the case with the previous-gen model, the new Elantra has been expected to spawn a GT model, and sure enough, Hyundai showed up to the 2017 Chicago Auto show with not one, but two variants in tow. Offered with either a 1.6-liter, turbocharged mill in Sport trim or a 2.0-liter NA mill in the entry-level trim, the GT can be had with either 201 horsepower or 162 horsepower, respectively. The new GT is now more rigid than before (by 22 percent,) sits lower, is wider, and shed a total of 62 pounds. Because of its hatchback nature, the GT can hold 25 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats in the upright position and more than double that the rear seats laid down.

What’s more important here is that the new Elantra GT will have its work cut out for it on the market. After all, the Elantra GT doesn’t exactly spring to mind when someone mentions hot hatches, despite the fact that it competes against some strong models like the Mazda3 and Ford Focus hatchback, among others. So, will the new Elantra GT have what it takes to drive folks into Hyundai dealers for the brand’s latest hatch? Well, things look promising but Keep reading to see what we think about it and to learn more about how it compares to the competition.

Update 08/03/2017: Hyundai has announced pricing for the 2018 Elantra GT. Prices start out at a relatively low $19,350 and increase to just over $24,000 for the range-topping model. Check out the details in the Prices section below.

PostHeaderIcon Next-Generation Ram 1500 Debuting At The 2018 Detroit Auto Show

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne has confirmed the next-generation Ram 1500 is on-schedule for its debut and production in January 2018. The unveiling festivities will take place at the Detroit Auto Show between January 14 and 16, while production begins that same month at the Ram’s new Sterling Heights assembly plant. And despite its early production, the new Ram will be a 2019 model. The next-generation Ram 2500 and 3500 are expected to debut the following year with similar design and engineering updates.

The 2019 Ram – codenamed DT – is expected to be lighter thanks to an expanded use of aluminum, though its cargo bed will remain steel for durability. Spy shots of a longer Crew Cab version suggest a Mega Cab option for the 1500, as well, setting the Ram apart in its highly competitive segment. A rumored split-tailgate design is also a possibility. Ram’s prior patent drawings detail a tailgate that acts like the Honda Ridgeline’s, but with a vertical split in the middle allowing for added versatility. A new rear bench seat with “Stow-n-Go”-like folding abilities might offer a completely flat load floor, too, as reported by Allpar. Drivetrain options will include a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with direct fuel injection and horsepower levels hovering between 310 and 320. An all-new turbocharged inline six-cylinder is expected for 2020, which might replace the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Rumors of an improved (and EPA-certified) EcoDiesel V-6 with a higher tow rating and a turbocharged four-cylinder have also been rumbling around the Internet. None of this has been confirmed, of course, as Ram has a tight hold on its upcoming pickup. Thankfully, the nitty-gritty details are coming in January.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Traverse

The venerable and humble Chevrolet Traverse is borrowing upscale design cues from its Tahoe and Suburban big brothers. The change happens for the 2018 model year as the Traverse moves into its second generation with little more than an engine option and the name carrying over. This unibody, three-row crossover is new from the lug nuts up. It rides on an elongated C1XX platform shared with the Cadillac XT5 and new-for-2017 GMC Acadia. Chevy expects the Traverse to lead the segment in interior volume and third-row legroom, making it a decent alternative to a minivan. It might still be a crossover, but its humility has gone missing.

The Traverse has been around since 2009 and has been Chevy’s version of the Lambda-based GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
With GM’s movement away from the aging Lambda platform, these vehicles migrated (save yet for the Enclave) to the new CX11 chassis. The 2017 Acadia was first out of the gate, but the Traverse now follows. However, the two are not badge-engineered twin anymore. The Traverse has a longer wheelbase that brings more interior volume and a more stately side profile appearance.

The 2018 Traverse now has two available engines – a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and the reworked 3.6-liter V-6. Both come mated to a new nine-speed automatic transmission. The Traverse retains its transverse engine mounting and standard front-wheel drive configuration. GM’s new part-time AWD system is optional.

Inside, the Traverse can hold eight people in a 2+3+3 configuration. A seven-seater configuration can be had thanks to optional second-row captain’s chairs. New folding mechanisms in the second row allow for easier folding and third-row entry. With both rows stored flat, the Traverse can swallow 98.5 cubic feet of cargo – nearly four cubic-feet more than the Chevy Tahoe.

Update 07/27/2017: Chevy has announced pricing for the 2018 Traverse. The base L trim starts at $30,875, while the range-topping High Country starts at $52,995. Full details are in the Pricing section below.

Of course, there is more to the 2018 Traverse, so keep reading for the full run-down.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Jeep Wrangler To Debut At LA Auto Show

The upcoming and highly anticipated 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL will debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in late November. That’s the official word from Jeep CEO Mike Manley, originating from an interview with Auto Express. What’s more, Manley confirmed the Wrangler will have a hybrid powertrain option, the details of which will be announced before the end of 2017. Thankfully, the Wrangler will still have the rugged looks and off-road capability of the current Wrangler JK we’ve come to love, but with healthy updates to both styling details and interior NVH.

“It’s definitely going to move the game along but you will absolutely know it’s a Wrangler – for sure! If we did anything that departed from the Wrangler formula I don’t think I’d be able to get out of the States,” said Manley, a native of Great Britain. It’s clear the next-generation Wrangler will have a familiar shape thanks to numerous spy shots of prototype vehicles seen scurrying around Detroit.
However, improvements to the Wrangler’s everyday livability will be a welcomed addition. “You’ll be really surprised how far we’ve been able to move things in terms of capability, fuel economy, ride comfort, noise and all of those things, said Mike Manley. “I’m very pleased with where it is.”

PostHeaderIcon Infiniti Q50

The Infiniti Q50 hit the market for the 2014 model year, and just two years later, Infiniti refreshed it for the 2016 model year. Well, instead of ushering in a new generation, Infiniti has decided to do another mild update for the 2018 model year, which includes a slightly different look outside, a revamped interior, and some new driver assistance features not previously available. Engine options include a 2.0-liter gasoline mill, a 2.2-liter turbodiesel, the 3.5-liter V-6, and a hybrid setup that combines a 3.5-liter V-6 and a 50-kW electric motor – giving the car a power output range of anywhere between 168 horsepower and 400 horsepower. The Q50 also makes use of Direct Adaptive Steering, a feature that Infiniti says is a “key building block to achieving fully-autonomous driving.” But, what is more important, is that each trim level will have its own stand-alone features and styling that will help it stand out in the lineup.

Roland Krueger, the President of Infiniti, said, “Infiniti seeks to empower our customers on their journey through their experience with us – whether it is our products, our technologies, our services, or simply a passion for driving. There is no better vehicle that incorporates all the elements of the Infiniti brand than the Q50 saloon.”

Now that the 2018 Infiniti Q5 has made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show, we have lots to talk about, so let’s dive on in and take a closer look at it and how it compares to the competition.

Update 7/21/2017: Infiniti has announced pricing for the 2018 Infiniti Q50. It starts out at $34,200, a $150 increase over last year’s model, and increases to as much as $53,000 for the Red Sport 400 – an increase of $2,300 over last year’s model. Check out the prices section below for all of the details.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Durango SRT

The Dodge Durango started life as a midsize, body-on-frame SUV in 1998 and became a full-size SUV for its second generation, which ran from 2004 to 2009. That second-gen model saw declining sales year after year, going from 137,148 sales for the 2004 model year down to just 3,521 for the 2009 model year. The Durango then fell out of production for 2010 (only 572 examples were sold that year), and by the time the 2011 model year came around, Dodge had redesigned the Durango into a full-sized unibody that was sportier than ever with a more upscale interior. Engine options for the current generation have been limited to a 3.6-liter Pentastar and Dodge’s 5.7-liter Hemi, but that is about to change now that Dodge is introducing the Dodge Durango SRT, which includes an even sportier exterior and interior package to go with a 6.4-liter Hemi (392 cubic-inches,) something that makes the Durango the fastest SUV in its class with an output of 475 ponies and 470 pound-feet of torque – that’s one mean machine.

If it seems to you like the Durango was ready to see its fourth-generation before it got yet another trim level, then I would have to say I agree. The current generation has been on the market since 2011 and was updated for the 2014 model year. But, FCA is trying to hold off on pushing out so many new-gen models and is instead focusing on coming up with new ways to bring interest to the models that are actually due for an update. The most obvious car this is happening to is the Dodge Challenger with its new SRT Demon, but the Durango is another one of those models that will soldier on for another year or two. But, at least you can now get it with that 6.4-liter Hemi wrapped in a very sexy package with room for six. With that said, let’s check this baby out and see what all it’s working with!

Updated 07/06/2017: Dodge has finally announced pricing for the Durango SRT. It starts out at $62,995 before options, taxes, and delivery. Check out the “Prices” section below to learn more about it, how it compares to other time levels, and the competition.

PostHeaderIcon A Historical Look At The Goodwood Festival Of Speed’s Center Feature Sculptures

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it’s the one auto event in the calendar year that really celebrates the history of the auto industry. For others, it’s a spectacle of some of the finest race cars and performance cars in history. Then there are those who go to the event just to see what the vibe is like. No matter where you fall in any of these groups, there’s an underlying agreement that nothing encapsulates the Goodwood Festival of Speed more than the event’s central feature, which traditionally takes the form of massive sculptures commissioned by automakers that are chosen by event organizers. More often than not, these companies are chosen if they’re celebrating a particular milestone that year.

The central feature has become a prominent fixture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed since 1997 when Ferrari was invited to serve as the marque of the event. Over the next two decades, a who’s who of the world’s top automakers have taken center stage with their own central features. Companies like Jaguar, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Renault have been featured more than twice, while other companies like BMW, Mazda, Honda, Toyota, Ford, Lotus, and Alfa Romeo have had their turns as well. In fact, since 1997, this year marks the very first time that the event’s central feature will be about a person, not an automaker. Former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is going to be given that honor, a fitting nod to the man who brought the glitz and glamor back to Formula One.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Shows up to Goodwood with a Unique interpretation of the Civic Type R

We all know that human and machine are becoming one. People can’t put down their smartphones for two seconds, Grandpa is walking around with a pacemaker to keep his heart going, and it’s only a matter of time before we’re able to replace our limbs with full-fledged robotic counterparts. Elon Musk is even doubling down on his notion of connecting the human brain directly to computers with his newest company, Neuralink. It’s only a matter of time before we can transfer human consciousness and become a race of sentient cyborg beings hellbent on spreading our archaic ideals across the galaxy and conquering the universe. Okay, so, that’s a bit too much, but there’s no denying that the gap between human and machine is getting increasingly smaller, and Honda has taken this idea into its own hands by creating a Honda Civic Type R and the Fireblade bike out of humans. That’s right; Humans.

It’s all a big show to celebrate the kicking off of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, and you have to admit, it’s one of the most creative ways to do so. All told, 12 performance artists manage to intertwine themselves enough to generate the basic silhouette of the Civic Type R and the Fireblade bike. The whole thing has been orchestrated by the Honda Challenge Lab, a self-proclaimed “playground of extraordinary ideas inspiring curiosity and learning.” Needless to say, if you happen to be checking out the festival this year, the Honda booth is one place you certainly want to visit – it’s not very often you see a group of people shaping themselves into vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon Could Jaguar Have A Mystery Unveiling Planned At Goodwood?

Count Jaguar in as one of the many automakers that will be in attendance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s not exactly ground-breaking news though, is it? Well, it appears that Jag isn’t coming to Lord March’s estate empty-handed as rumors are circulating that the company is coming with a new version of its XJ sedan.

Now, this isn’t actually a rumor in the traditional sense because Jaguar itself announced such plans. What’s been left in the dark is what kind of version of the XJ this mysterious model is going to be. The only thing Jag hinted at is that it will be a new “derivative” of the luxury sedan and that it will use the Festival of Speed’s famous Hill Climb event to complete its final testing phase. Other than that, we’re left to our own imaginative devices to speculate on what derivative of the XJ this model is going to be. Could it be a new performance-oriented XJR? Maybe something out of Jag’s SVO division to sit alongside the XE SV Project 8? There’s also the possibility that with the current generation XJ nearing its life cycle, Jag might be developing this mystery XJ as a last hurrah of sorts – like perhaps an ultra luxurious final edition model? There are plenty of different directions that this mysterious XJ could go so predicting what it’s bringing to the table at Goodwood will likely amount to nothing. We’ll know the answer soon enough.
