2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys Wheeler Review

2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys Wheeler Review

It's one of the most puzzling conundrums in the auto industry: how does an anachronism like the Jeep Wrangler rattle off ever-increasing sales numbers each and every year? By any rational measure, the Wrangler's old school platform lags behind its SUV competitors by at least several generations, and yet each year hundreds of thousands of customers look past the clunky steering, rough ride, and wince-inducing fuel mileage to embrace its rugged image and drive one home from the dealership.

The 2016 IIHS full-size truck safety scores are in… and they’ll shock you

Full-size trucks may look tough, but not every load-hauler is created equal according to the IIHS safety test scores for 2016.

Sherp ATV is a go anywhere truck with massive tires

Sherp ATV is a go anywhere truck with massive tires

The little vehicle you see here isn’t exactly a truck and it isn't exactly an ATV. It's a bit of a mix of the two and according to the folks who have seen it in action and the video you can watch below, the Sherp looks to be a capable little beastie. The hallmark feature of this thing are the massive tires that are self-inflating and have their own patent. Those tires are 1600x600x25, gigantic enough to allow the Sherp to embarrass obstacles up to 70cm tall.

A simple tweak is making America’s top-selling truck greener

Gas prices might be at a refreshing low, but coaxing more miles - and fewer emissions - out of each gallon still has its charms.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew boosts space in sports truck

A Ford truck with the engine of the GT, but space for five and off-road abilities that could put a dune buggy to shame just has to wear the Raptor badge. Unsurprisingly, then, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew takes the company's performance truck and gives it a four-door spin for the Detroit Auto Show this week.

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

"Try the Tahoe" I was told when, a month or so ago, I admitted that Cadillac's vast, attention-seeking, and generally louche Escalade had wormed its way into my cold British heart. According to the commenters, I'd have just as much success - not to mention save a few tens of thousands of dollars - with the 2016 version of Chevrolet's SUV. So, I thought I'd put that to the test.
