Jeep's Wrangler-based pickup, the Gladiator, is ready to roll out to showrooms and we've just had some time behind the wheel. We found it to be a bit less nimble around town thank the Wrangler, but other mid-size pickup trucks aren’t much different.

Mercedes-Benz has a new generation of its CLA compact sedan on its hands and we've just spotted a prototype for the high-performance CLA45 from Mercedes-AMG. We hear the car will come with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and over 400 horsepower.

The commercial vehicle division of Mercedes parent company Daimler has bought a majority stake in Blacksburg, Virginia-based Torc Robotics, a company that develops self-driving systems for heavy machinery like mining trucks and agricultural vehicles. Together, Daimler and Torc want to introduce self-driving tech to semi-trailer trucks in the United States.
