Toyota FJ Cruiser Xtreme officially added to 2014 UAE line-up


The Arctic Trucks-modified “Xtreme” version of the Toyota FJ Cruiser had been vaguely around before, for the past couple of years, sold on a custom-order basis while the Toyota Land Cruiser Xtreme got all the limelight. Now Toyota’s UAE dealer, Al Futtaim Motors, is offering the FJ Cruiser Xtreme as an official addition to the local line-up.

So we got a 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

So we got a 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392


The last time we got behind the wheel of a Dodge Challenger SRT8 was back in early 2011, driving a 2010 version with the 6.1-litre Hemi and standard bouncy suspension. Even then, it left a mark on our minds, more so than its two other rivals, as the best iteration of a true muscle-car that harks back to the hey-days of the 1960s. And then the 392 version came out in late 2011, with a host of upgrades, including a 6.4-litre Hemi and adaptive suspension. But this is the first time we got to try it out.

Mercedes-Benz built its reputation on luxury cars over the course of a century. Then there was that one time in the early 70s when they dabbled with a 4×4 for a military contract. That was the G-Wagen, which quickly went civilian later, but it wasn’t until the 90s that it evolved into the form it is today. Mercedes-Benz got the hint that the world is ready for a mainstream three-pointed-star SUV, and came up with the M-Class by the late 90s. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today, aside from the patriarch G-Class, the midsize M-Class and the compact GLK-Class,

First drive: 2014 Isuzu D-Max GT in the UAE


Privately-owned midsize pickups are a legitimate market segment in several Asian and even Western countries. Here, they are almost exclusively used as commercial vehicles, driven by sweaty hard-working men who quietly laugh at moisturiser-toting management types trundling to office in oversized American pickup trucks. However, Isuzu feels there is a gap in the market for a good-sized “lifestyle” pickup, and hence, we have the Isuzu D-Max GT.
