Land Rover has redesigned the Range Rover, with the new fifth-generation model to arrive at dealerships next spring as a 2022 model. While the exterior styling hasn’t changed all that much, underneath is a new platform that supports battery-electric powertrains and perhaps eventually hydrogen-electric powertrains.
Chevrolet’s new Corvette Z06 has finally landed. The big news is the car’s 5.5-liter V-8 which features a flat-plane crankshaft and double overhead cams. The engine is related to the unit in the Corvette C8.R race car, and is the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 in production thanks to its 670-hp output.
A camouflaged prototype for an updated Ford Escape, a Kuga in some markets, has been spotted testing. The popular compact crossover is set to take on a tougher look that resembles the design of the Mustang Mach-E, and we should see it reach dealerships next year as a 2023 mode.
