2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer previewed in concept form

2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer previewed in concept form

The Jeep Wagoneer is a completely unknown entity in the Middle East, but to baby boomers in the United States, it is a name as well-known as the Wrangler. It was a classic 5-door SUV that debuted in 1962 and somehow carried on largely unchanged till 1991! It was replaced by the modern-at-the-time 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and while the current Grand Cherokee itself is stagnating with minor updates for the past decade, there is an all-new Wagoneer range of models on the way, as previewed by the full-size Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept that debuted today.

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor possibly confirmed in unintentional leak

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor possibly confirmed in unintentional leak

The Ford Bronco caused quite a stir when it debuted about a month ago, far more than anything that rivals from Jeep and Land Rover could cook up. However, with the top engine option limited to a 310 hp 2.7-litre turbo V6, it seemed like Ford left something on the table for a future higher-performance model such as a Ford Bronco Raptor.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX debuts, coming to UAE and GCC

The Ford F-150 Raptor carved a new niche for itself when it came out first, slotting itself in as a performance pickup. Since then, the Raptor has been enjoying a sort of monopoly with no mainstream manufacturer daring to lighten its halo. But after years of teasing and dawdling around, FCA has finally debuted their version of a fast offroading truck, the 702 hp Hellcat V8-powered 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.

Manufacturer recalls for July 2020

With economies slowly freeing themselves from the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, the automotive industry is slowly creeping back up to their old levels. But surprisingly, only a single major recall was reported in the past month that was relevant to the Middle Eastern market.

Jeep Wrangler V8 Rubicon attempts to distract, while parent company renamed Stellantis

Jeep Wrangler V8 Rubicon attempts to distract, while parent company renamed Stellantis

The arrival of the Ford Bronco is expected to be quite a hit on Jeep Wrangler (and Gladiator) sales, the only occupant of that segment (not counting leftover Toyota FJ Cruisers). But Jeep is not ready to let go of the throne that quick. Just hours before Ford unwrapped the Bronco, Jeep attempted to troll Ford by also revealing the V8-powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, if only as a concept that they are strongly hinting will go into production. In other news, the new company formed after the Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) and Peugeot (PSA) merger will be called Stellantis.

2021 Ford Bronco resurrected as Jeep killer

2021 Ford Bronco resurrected as Jeep killer

Since it was first teased back in 2004, enthusiasts across the world had been waiting for Ford to bring back the Bronco, long dead after starring in the infamous O.J. Simpson police chase a decade prior to that. And it’s finally happened. The resurrected Ford Bronco is back as a 2021 model year, planned out as a serious threat to the Jeep Wrangler, ending its solo act in the off-road segment ever since the Toyota FJ Cruiser was nixed globally.
