2017 Rubicon Recon: an Even Tougher Jeep Rubicon

Right out of the box, the Jeep Rubicon is a pretty burly piece of hardware. After all, it’s a four-door Wrangler. But for trail blazers looking for an even tougher off-roader, the company is offering the 2017 Rubicon Recon Edition. Jeep is pricing the Rubicon Recon Edition at $6,000 over the standard models, and as you might expect, precious little of that coin is going toward cosmetics or frills. After all, Jeep —at least unofficially — stands for “Just Enough Essential Parts.” So sure, there are some special badges. There’s a tweaked…

2018 Jaguar F-Pace Gets 247-Horsepower Four Cylinder Option

For 2018, Jaguar F-Pace buyers will get another engine option, and unsurprisingly, it’s a turbocharged four cylinder. We say unsurprisingly because small displacement turbos are all the rage right now, and the little units are finding their way into all kinds of vehicles — including crossovers. Built on the company’s Ingenium platform, the 2.0-liter engine produces 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, thanks to its twin-scroll snail. That should provide decent motivation for the biggest cat in the company’s stable, as according to Jaguar, it has enough poke to allow the…

Sounds Like a 4.0-liter Cayman GT4 RS is Coming

If an Australian Porsche dealer is to be believed, it sounds like a 4.0-liter Cayman GT4 RS will be hitting showrooms later this year. For well-heeled enthusiasts, this is some seriously great news. To explain why this is such big deal, it helps to have a little historical perspective. Automakers have a long history of sandbagging their lines so cheaper versions don’t detract from their upmarket cousins, and many folks feel like this has been the case with the Cayman. One of the most famous examples we can remember was the…

2016 Chevrolet SS Automotive News 

Time is Running Out to Order a Chevy SS

If you’ve been on the fence about picking up a Chevy SS, it’s time to make a decision, as dealers are going to close the order books at the end of this month. While the General never put any real marketing muscle behind the Chevy SS, from an enthusiast standpoint, it’s one heck of a cool car. Motivation comes from the burly 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine which powered the previous generation Corvettes, and with 415 horsepower and 415-pound feet of torque on tap, drivers will have little trouble smoking the tires. Another…
