    Kia is working on a new SUV, and this one could be a rugged off-roader coming to take on the soon-to-be-revived Ford Bronco and the Jeep Wrangler stalwart. The Korean firm has just launched the Telluride in the full-size crossover SUV segment, but our latest spy shots show engineers testing a mid-size model that bears a design clearly cribbed from the Telluride. It's possible we're looking at an early tester for a redesigned Kia Mohave, a vehicle that was briefly sold here as the Kia Borrego late last decade. If the new SUV reaches the United States, we'll likely see it arrive as a 2021...

    8 things you need to know about the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550 and AMG G63

    The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen doesn’t look much different than the boxy SUVs from each of the 40 years preceding it. Typically, if a vehicle is indistinguishable from its predecessors, that’s a bad thing. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is anything but typical. I went to San Diego...

  • 2019 Audi Q8, Park City to Telluride

    Lights flicker underneath champagne-dry powder that dusts the old marquee at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah. The Egyptian’s been here since the 1920s. Back then, Park City was a glorified, dusty camp attached to a silver lode; a long ride but a world apart from Salt Lake City, which is now a 20-minute ride down Parley’s Canyon in the 2019 Audi Q8. When it was built, the Egyptian was a brick-and-mortar commitment by the boomtown to finer arts like theater and opera, surprisingly common among the mining outposts that dot the Rockies in Utah and Colorado. This morning...

He said sedans will play an integral part in Jaguar's electrification strategy and are important to long-term strategies in Europe and China. Specifically, Speth said as Europe and China implement stricter emissions regulations, sedans are inherently easier to work with due to their superior aerodynamic properties. Taller SUVs are more...
