Ford has finally confirmed it's developing a Ranger Raptor. The high-performance mid-size pickup truck hasn't been confirmed for the United States, but we should see it considering the regular Ranger will be heading here.

Mazda is set to become the first automaker in the world with a car powered by a gasoline engine capable of spark-less ignition, and we’ve just tested a prototype. According to Mazda, the engine should match or exceed the efficiency of diesel engines but without many of the harmful emissions they produce.

Mercedes-Benz has been spotted testing its next-generation CLS. This will be the third generation of the swoopy sedan, though sadly it doesn’t seem as special now that many rivals have similar offerings. In fact, even Mercedes’ in-house tuner AMG is prepping a swoopy sedan of its own.
