  • 2018 Rezvani Tank

    Rezvani debuted its Jeep Wrangler-based Tank SUV earlier in October. At the debut, the vehicle was equipped with a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. But for those buyers not in need of such a big, stonking engine, Rezvani has a smaller option. The Californian firm on Tuesday at the 2017 SEMA show revealed a V-6 powered Tank for the more frugal minded. We say frugal because the V-6 option knocks $32,000 off the V-8 model's $178,000 price. For $146,000, the tough-as-nails off-road machine will come equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine good for 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It's a far cry from...

  • 2017 Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6

    Remember when Hennessey Performance revealed the utterly bonkers VelociRaptor 6x6 a year ago and announced plans to build it? Well, the company wasn’t kidding as it rolled out the first example on Tuesday at the 2017 SEMA show. Based on the F-150 Raptor SuperCrew, the VelociRaptor 6x6 is 4-door performance pickup with locking rear axles, upgraded Fox suspension, custom 20-inch wheels, off-road tires, flared wheel arches, a sport bar and LED lights. Yes, it’s a big, hulking truck, and yes it’s entirely worthy of competing against equally nutty 6-wheelers from across the pond...

That's because anything with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 known as the Hellcat is always awesome. The Wisconsin-based shop plans to debut a...

  • 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition

    Chevrolet is debuting two new Camaros ahead of the 2017 SEMA Show and there's good news for Hot Wheels and drag racing lovers. Meet the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition and the 2018 COPO Camaro. Chevrolet bundled both announcements because the brand will offer the Hot Wheels Edition cues on the drag-spec COPO Camaro.

    2016 SEMA: The good, the bad, the horrendous

    You hear mixed things about SEMA. As someone who's never attended, I wanted to see it with my own eyes.
