  • Destination Frontier

    So, you’re here for the overlanding. We get you. Nature’s beauty, its quiet, and cans of Dinty Moore heated over an open fire—all good. Perhaps isolation, fewer showers, and digging latrines also are your thing—we don’t judge. The 2019 Nissan Frontier that was unveiled Wednesday does it all, but perhaps for less than we expect. Custom-built overlanding rigs easily reach into six figures, the so-called Destination Frontier does it for about $44,000. The one-off rig starts with a 2019 Frontier SV that costs $31,505*, including destination, and adds a 3-inch lift...

  • 2019 GMC Syclone by Specialty Vehicle Engineering

    Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) is back with its latest take on a past General Motors performance vehicle. The company announced Monday it will tackle the beloved GMC Syclone with a new model based on the GMC Canyon mid-size truck. Keeping with tradition, the reborn Syclone rocks a V-6 engine with forced induction. While the original model from GMC itself boasted a 4.3-liter turbocharged V-6, SVE has slapped a supercharger on the current 3.6-liter V-6 offered with the Canyon. The supercharger makes things interesting with 455 horsepower available. Coupled with the power increase are...

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator

    The 2020 Jeep Gladiator brings all the right hardware to the mid-size pickup truck fight. It’s even dressed for battle. Pundits might argue that the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a Wrangler with a pickup truck bed, and they wouldn’t be entirely wrong. The Gladiator shares its retro design that borders on kitschy with the Wrangler. What’s underneath to support the Gladiator’s bed makes a difference, however. The Gladiator stretches more than two feet longer than the four-door Wrangler. At 218 inches from bumper to bumper, it’s bigger than any other mid-size truck with a...

    First drive review: 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon conquers nearly anything

    If it can’t climb up the hill, it’ll just pull itself over the hill. That’s life for the 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. For 2019, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon loses some weight, gains some useful technology, refines its edges, but loses zero capability. I flew out to Las Vegas to put the...
