2023 Cadillac Lyriq

Just weeks after driving the Escalade-V, a 668-horsepower supercharged full-size SUV, it felt disorienting hopping into the all-electric 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. One is a no-limits final chapter for internal combustion, the other is the start of a new era for the Cadillac brand. The Lyriq arrives as Cadillac's first all-electric vehicle, a mid-size SUV that slots somewhere between the gas-powered XT5 and XT6 models without sharing anything in common with them (apart from the Cadillac badge). Available initially as a single-motor, rear-wheel-drive model with 340 hp and a 312-mile range, the Lyriq will also be sold with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain producing 500 hp.

New Jeep Tomahawk Ready To Fight The Cadillac Escalade-V

Thanks to the efforts of Dodge in creating the Hellcat engine and its various iterations over the years, the American market has been blessed with numerous high-horsepower cars, some of which were totally unexpected. Among them is the world's most powerful SUV in the Durango Hellcat, and it's a riot. Jeep has also used the engine in its Trackhawk, but with that car now dead, there's a vacancy at the top of the range. The brand still offers a Trailhawk variant that is geared towards off-roading, but thanks to a new trademark application discovered by CarBuzz, it may not be only offering with the word 'hawk' in its name. Filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), this new name points to something that could mean a new and very exciting Jeep.

Lucid Air CRUSHES The Goodwood Hill Climb

This year's Goodwood Hill Climb event was full of fun surprises. An electric mini-car called the McMurtry Speirling broke the all-time record up the hill, taking just 39.08 seconds. That was enough to dethrone the previous record holder, the Volkswagen ID.R, by just a hundredth of a second. Though there's no way it could outmatch the Speirling's insane fan-downforce system that helps it stick to the road, the 2022 Lucid Air had itself quite the weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Red Bull Announces $6.1 Million Hypercar With 1,100 HP

The Aston Martin Valkyrie was originally intended to be genius engineer Adrian Newey's wet dream, a track car with zero compromises and as many innovations as possible. This was supposed to be the finest track hypercar ever made. As impressive as it has turned out to be so far, the car is a little sanitized compared to what the Red Bull engineer originally wanted, with compromises continually being made. But now a second shot at creating the perfect racecar has been afforded to Newey, with Red Bull Advanced Technologies announcing today that it will be working with the man to create Red Bull's first hypercar project ever. Very few will be made, the price will be very high, and the arrival date is not far off.

Rumor: BMW Wants To Build The M5 Wagon

American car enthusiasts were forced to sit idly by as BMW revealed the first-ever M3 Touring wagon, which will not be sold in the US market despite a petition with over 50,000 signatures. BMW hasn't offered a wagon in the US since the 2019 3 Series, and this is far from the first time an M-branded long-roof model has been kept from us. Though the current and previous generation BMW M5 variants were only offered in the sedan body style, the E60-generation spawned an M5 Touring variant (the E61 wagon chassis) that was only sold in Europe.

Corvette-Powered Lincoln Futura Hot Rod Brims With Gotham Style

If you were born in this century, you have probably never heard of Lincoln's Futura concept from 1955. That said, you may recognize it as the basis of one of the most iconic Batmobiles ever made. Either way, it's the sort of car that you simply cannot buy, and that's a real pity. It harks back to a time when Lincoln was building some of the finest luxury cars America had to offer, and while plans are being made to recapture that fire in the future, there's a strong attraction to the ambitious and eclectic designs of the 1950s. So how does one satisfy the desire for a car that is unobtainable? By creating their own take on it, of course.

Challenger Tomahawk Is A Sweet Name For Dodge's Next EV Muscle Car

Wild Track Day Does Not End Well For Tesla Model S Plaid

We don't like criticizing other people's builds on this website unless it's some horrible replica that deserves to be hauled into space like Elon Musk's Roadster. Having said that, it's hard not to point out several flaws within the Chillin' with Chet YouTube channel's latest video. Chet took his stripped-out Model S Plaid to the track to test the car's new braking system. The standard brakes at the front were upgraded with front calipers, rotors, and pads from Unplugged Performance. The Plaid's rear brakes were kept standard.

Honda Ridgeline Recall Is Bad News For Those Who Go Off The Beaten Path

Remember the older Honda Ridgeline? While the new one looks good and drives better, the old one divided opinions for its unibody construction and oddball styling.

Subaru diehards were given terrible news earlier this year when the company announced it would not build an STI variant of the current-generation WRX. This means are are no STI-branded models left in Subaru's US lineup, but it won't let the name completely die off in its home market of Japan. The 2022 Subaru Forester just received a new STI Sport trim level. As with performance trim levels from other manufacturers, the presence of the word "sport" insinuates this is not a fully-fledged, hardcore STI model.
