Someone is Pushing for a Nissan Navara Nismo and It Could Put a Hurtin’ On the Ford Ranger Raptor

Performance pickups are picking up heat more than ever. With competition touching new heights in almost all mainstream genres, automakers are now turning to this segment which is still somewhat niche. When you talk about stock performance pickups, only two of them come to mind – the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram Rebel TRX. This trend is trickling down to the smaller trucks as well. Nissan Australia’s boss has revealed that he is putting pressure on the company to come up with a powerful version of the Navara pickup truck to take on the Ford Ranger Raptor. Will the Navara be the latest Nissan offering to be smitten by the in-house performance division, Nismo?

A Crazy Russian Artist Rendered a Dodge Challenger-Based SUV and We Can’t Unsee it

You would think that a car as iconic as the Dodge Challenger would be immune to the whimsical minds of those who render “what-if” vehicles for a pastime. But as is often the case in the auto industry, perception isn’t always reality.

Heaven forbid that Dodge sees this and decides that it wants to build. A rendering of a Dodge Challenger SUV is fine; building a real one is not. Don’t fall to the temptation, Dodge!

The First Rendering of the 2021 Chevy C8 Corvette ZR1 Has Us Anxious for the Future

Chevrolet says it has seriously enhanced every part of the new Corvette C8 Stingray’s performance repertoire – the car is considerably faster to sprint, but also sharper and more agile through the corners than the model it replaces.

Can the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette’s LT2 V-8 Be Supercharged?
