Mercedes G Class Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle spied near the Arctic Circle
What threat from Moscow? Really? I thought the ISIS are the current main threat?

New Mercedes E Class to start from $49,436 with 9G auto
There will effectively be two AMG models. A V6 one and the usual top of the power range V8 one. To say the AMG E43 won't be an AMG is wrong, as the suspension, exhaust, engine, dynamics etc, have all been worked on by AMG. I'd say its a budget introduction or even an interest for those that would like to use more of the power more of the time. However, for all out craziness, the V8 will be there! lol.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat coming before late 2017
I hope they make the exhaust even louder or add a button to control the sound levels like AMG does. This is going to be interesting!

AMG Sport models to become Mercedes-AMGs
If you've driven a C450 or GLE450 you will quickly realise it is not your 'standard' mercedes. The sound is music to the ears and the power is not to be joked with. Plus the handling, brakes and suspension have been tuned by AMG. Therefore at what point is it not an actual AMG?? It is as AMG say, an entry level but tons of fun. Compared to the ML63 I drove the GLE450 AMG sport has more useable power. Meaning I could keep my foot down longer and listen to the sound longer without breaking the speed limits. very useable performance. The ML63 could only fully be exploited in a 'non speed limit' area. ;-)

Brabus G63 AMG 6x6 tipped over following crash [video]
Just from that picture and video. It looks like they hit something very hard on the front left of the G63 then possibly mounted it on that one side and tipped over. That is based also on the assumption that they hit a smaller vehicle hence riding over it and rolling onto the side.

Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz, & David Coulthard joining Top Gear
I love Chris Harris's reviews/comments but that is from the purely informative side which even the original trio didn't delve into much of at all. However the way the trio made it entertaining through the big boys and toys style will most definitely not be here. That said this now warrants a viewing. My worry now is all the other presenters will dilute the whole thing but I guess, as always, time will tell. I wonder if Chris Harris will still continue his YouTube channel reviews? They are arguably the best (real depth info) car reviews to be found anywhere.

2016 Mercedes E-Class interior revealed
I'm thinking the next GLE will have this!!

2016 Mercedes E-Class interior revealed
I used to think the same but after using a column shifter it is easier and quicker to use in the MB. Like driving Auto now yet used to love manuals before. Weird but true.

LOL. There isn't any iPad looking like that.

Chrysler reportedly re-evaluating its lineup
Since everyone is throwing their two cents in, let me do so too ;-) : Jeep -Introduce a Grand Cherokee coupe (more sporty looking) like the GLE coupe and X6 coupe -Introduce a bigger Cherokee then also a Cherokee coupe (more sporty looking) -7 seater is coming so that's sorted - Renegade should align with being a smaller Wrangler - continue to update the same Wrangler - Compass should be made to be the model directly under the Cherokee so it can become the same size as the current Cherokee Dodge - Keep the Journey as it's value for money just keep updating it - Keep Dodge Dart - Keep the Durango - Introduce a Larger version of the 7 seater Jeep - Keep Minivan version of Chrysler Grand Voyager Chrysler - Keep 200 and 300c - Keep Voyager of course - Introduce SUV based on Grand Cherokee and future 7 seater Grand Wagoneer - Introduce Chrysler versions of the Jeep coupe SUVs (see above) RAM - Keep all of them as they are doing SRT - Keep this as a performance division of its own. Meaning any of the above brands can have an SRT version. The SRT brand is already strong for meaning performance so use it to an effect like Mercedes-Benz has AMG and BMW has the M division. Alfa - Make this basically a direct competitor for BMW, Audi etc - Introduce a sexy SUV Grand Cherokee size and possibly as both SUV and coupe Maserati - Competitor for Porsche and other high end vehicles - Introduce an SUV too Fiat - Think VW in more mass market appeal.

VW sets deadline for whistleblowers to come clean about illegal maneuvers
What I'd really like is a new mileage measurement standard so we get close to real life figures and scrap the optimistic (bearing on fantasy) ones now being advertised.

Hot Mercedes-Benz GLC 450 Coupe spied for the first time
The Renault engine is only in the C 160 versions and it is Renault based but with Mercedes engine tuning/refining and a few components changed. ;-) I also don't think there will be a GLC 160 version. The rest of the line up is all MB through and through.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GL facelift officially revealed as the new GLS
The problem with the Range Rover is reliability especially when used where you think it should be used. On tough terrain. You can see GL's pounding the rough roads in East Africa and surviving but the Range rovers are best only for the city. Though the new Range Rovers have a very nice interior! Though again the infotainment system is not that great. Rather clunky.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GL facelift officially revealed as the new GLS
What are you talking about?? This GLS and its immediate predecessor are/were based on the 166 platform. Having driven both 1st gen GL on 164 platform and this GL on 166 platform, the 166 platform has a better ride and better interior. It's not yet Maybach badge worthy but it's a great large 4x4.

Geely reveals all-new TX5 London taxi
Interesting, though I was growing accustomed to the Mercedes-Benz Vito / Viano taxis that had even more space. I for some strange reason like the traditional London cab styling and the beauty of the London cab was the ability to enter with all your shopping bags and just sit down. Even up to 5 people. No need to put the shopping in the boot first. However, that all works well when you are within London and not going far out. Otherwise the cost is too high in the current competitive environment. Unfortunately, times have changed and there is a lot of competition. They would have to introduce an 'Uber' type app to easily call cabs to improve the service they already offer. Then reduce the prices to become a bit more competitive. Otherwise, I don't see the long term future for the 'traditional' black cab.

Chevrolet introduces their new ZZ6 small block V8 engine
Actually, I'm responding to Cobrajet. The pollution of CO2 will be higher but the Nitrogen Oxide pollution might be less compared to diesel engines.

2016 Fiat Toro teased, goes on sale next year
It should be and it looks like the styling is going to be quite nice! I can't wait to see the whole vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz drops 69 fresh pics with the facelifted G-Class [video]
But you can pound potholes all day long in the 'third world' without it falling to bits like some 'other' popular 'offroader'. Basically it's the Ferrari/sports car, practical equivalent for countries with very bad roads. Having driven one, the acceleration feeling and noise are exhilarating though I agree I don't aim for maximum speed. It's just tough as nails and drives like a tank,....with a rumbling V8!

Angry Mercedes S63 AMG owner smashes his car with golf stick [video]
We don't know the whole story but one thing that can lead to failed starting is poor fuel quality. Once heard of someone getting 95 octane but it turned out the petrol station was putting much lower quality fuel and selling it as peremium fuel. So you never know. This type of trashing of ones car (or apparently a leased one) in this case shows extreme irrationality and impatience.

Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 shows its new face in latest spy photos
If they rake the rear screen any more that it is, it will make the rear last seat row only for kids. As it is now, even adults can sit there relatively comfortably which is rare in these '7 seater' vehicles.

Lewis Hamilton takes the Mercedes GLE Coupe for a spin [video]
Saw it in n the flesh and test drove it too. It's a stunner and drivers very sporty. GLE450 AMG is pure fun. The music from the exhaust is V6 heaven!

Former Top Gear trio confirms signing Amazon deal for new show
Well then, I guess I have to figure out how to use/watch Amazon Prime then. I hope the show is not region locked. So we all get it at the same time.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser spied in the flesh
Jeez, the design guys have it easy. It seems to get uglier with each update. ??

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser spied in the flesh
again see comment above. G-class is stronger and the new land cruisers are not as strong as the old ones.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser spied in the flesh
I think that title belongs to the G-class. The new toyota land cruisers are not as strong as the older generation ones.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat rumored to run from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds
If the less than 3 seconds to 60mph happens...this will be THE performance SUV to get. Forget about twisty road times as you can get sport cars for that but the sheer take off and go G force will be a seller!!

FCA reportedly considering a merger with PSA Peugeot Citroen
Actually, since the current Jeep Grand Cherokee is running on a new ML chassis and the tech seems to be shared quite a bit. A re-merger with Mercedes would make the most sense out of all the car companies. Or even a majority buyout so control goes to Daimler. I think it will be different this time around as Daimler saw what went wrong with the last approach and have seen what is right with the current running of Jeep.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser leaks out early [video]
If they can sell many of them looking like that, then those buyers don't really care about the looks, in which case the designers can have a field day testing all sorts of design ideas on the Landcruiser. I wonder if the Pontiac Aztec would have sold in larger numbers if it was badged as a Toyota? ;-)
