    2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

    Typically, pickup trucks don’t come much tougher than Toyota’s Tacoma, unless of course they’ve been afforded the TRD Pro treatment. Combing ruggedness and reliability, for more than a decade, the Tacoma has been the nation’s most successful mid-size pickup, so this is one of the most awaited additions to the brand’s latest Off-Road Series. The truck was created to tackle the steepest of gradients and the most stubborn of terrain and will continue to chew up trails with ease thanks …cotinue reading

     
  • 2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro

    2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro

    Toyota’s legendary Land Cruiser has ruled the large SUV segment for, well, forever, partly due to the fact that the Sequoia hasn’t had an update for more than a decade, but now it’s ready to storm out of the shadows thanks to its TRD Pro-fueled facelift. And so, the 2020 Sequoia TRD Pro is one mean beast, boasting big, bad off-road bragging rights to bring it in line with other newly-imbued TRD Pro models—think the Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner—while also …cotinue reading

    ICON 1949 Hudson Derelict Coupe

    Car shop ICON’s mind blowing Derelict line consists of old and beat up cars that have been overhauled while leaving and even leaning into their weathered look. The latest Derelict is this 1949 Hudson Coupe that was found in a barn. You wouldn’t know it by its looks, but it now runs on a 630hp LS 9 engine. It also has a fully-adjustable four-wheel independent suspension, Brembo brakes and automatic transmission.   

     
  • 2020 Toyota Camry and Avalon TRD

    2020 Toyota Camry and Avalon TRD

    It’s big, bold, exciting news from Toyota with the announcement that the Camry and Avalon will be receiving the TRD treatment. TRD, of course, stands for Toyota Racing Development, a four-decade-old (yes, really!) in-house super-tuning arm that has previously left most of its off-road motor sport competitors choking on clouds of smug dust. Therefore the TRD spec has (mainly) been confined to the firm’s trucks and SUVs such as the Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner, so news that the pair of …cotinue reading

  • 2020 Land Rover Defender

    2020 Land Rover Defender

    The 2020 Land Rover Defender is here and it looks hella good. After a short hiatus, the Defender returns with modern styling and tech while still keeping the boxy silhouette it shares with the previous edition. Unlike the original body-on-frame truck, the 2020 Defender is built on an aluminum unibody chassis and rides on a fully independent suspension. Inside, the Defender gets a digital instrument cluster and a cabin trimmed in upscale materials like leather and wood. Although the four-door …cotinue reading
