A spicy new variant of Ford’s normally mild crossover. In the hands of Ford Performance, this one rocks a 335 hp turbo-6 with 380 lb-ft. of torque, AWD, a sport-tuned suspension, 20 or 21-inch wheels, and lots of aesthetic upgrades, including a mesh grille and ST badging.
The italian exotic car maker’s bonkers crossover SUV. It’s powered by a twin-turbo V8 with 650 hp, has 4-wheel-drive, 4-wheel steering, adaptive air suspension and dampers, and can handle itself both on or off the tarmac. Goes 0-to-62 in 3.6s, with a top speed of 190 mph.

We know first hand how good the Land Rover Discovery is good at towing things – we shot the video they used of the snow-bound 18-wheeler being towed by one. But we didn’t know it could pull a 121-ton, 328 ft road train like this Discovery HSE Td6 recently did in Australia.
Featuring cleaner styling than ever, Porsche’s performance SUV now rocks a V8 that makes 550 hp and 567 lb-ft. of torque, improved handling, does 0-to-60 in as little as 3.7s with top speed of 177 mph. The new interior looks great too, with its plethora of digital displays.
BMW is gunning for the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Lexus LX and other road-hogging SUVs with the X7. It’s the most spacious BMW ever designed, and has a panoramic glass roof that stretches all the way to the back. It will be available as a hybrid with a turbocharged engine. That kidney grill tho.
We spent a week with Toyota’s rugged, capable, and comfortable SUV, and didn’t want to give it up when our time was done. It deftly goes from urban daily driver to a rugged, trail-capable 4×4, and won’t break the bank. Read our full review on 95octane.

We recently headed to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Chevrolet for a day at their Find New Roads Experience. Along the way, we hit the agility course in the new Colorado ZR2, launched a Camaro ZL1, and did a bucket-list lap of the speedway in a Corvette Grand Sport.
Jeep borrows a bit of thunder from its Dodge SRT cousins, packing a 707hp Hellcat supercharged 6.2L V8 engine under its hood, and big Brembo brakes. We can’t think of too many other vehicles that can go 0-to-60 in 3.5s, devour off road trails, and tow up to 7,200 lbs.
