If you’re looking for an SUV with genuine performance credentials, then a close look at the Range Rover Sport SVR from Land Rover is a must. The vehicle is the first from Jaguar Land Rover to wear the automaker’s new SVR performance branding, and it comes with 550 horsepower under the hood.

Jeep is hard at work on a new model to replace both the Patriot and the Compass in its lineup. We have our first spy shots of the vehicle, which confirm it will ride on a stretched version of the platform found in the Renegade.

Though it hasn’t been mentioned by the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F], the new GT supercar is expected to spawn a racing version that will compete in both the United SportsCar Championship and the World Endurance Championship. Our first look at the new racer may come as early as next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
