2016 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Sep 28, 2016 - 11:26 AM - by AutoGuide.com

It’s September which means we’re back in Europe to take in the hottest new reveals and concept cars. In Paris you can expect cars from your favourite luxury automakers like the new BMW 5 series sedan and X2 crossover, or the new Mercedes GLC43 Coupe or AMG GT Roadster. Even Land Rover is getting in on the show with a new Discovery. There are also rumors of a new VW EV to hit the show, in order to distract people from that whole TDI scandal.

You can also expect many high end cars and exotics to make a splash, with Ferrari looking to make a big deal about its 70th anniversary. Keep your eyes peeled right here for all the details.

GM Quietly Releases Then Deletes Specs for HD 2017 Duramax Turbo-Diesel
Sep 27, 2016 - 11:08 AM - by AutoGuide.com

A document containing official horsepower and torque numbers for GM’s brand new 6.6-liter V8 Duramax turbo-diesel was found buried on the GM Powertrain website – before the company quickly deleted it.

GM’s new 2017 heavy-duty pickup trucks will wade into the nuclear torque war with a whopping 910 pound-feet of twist, with peak torque coming on at just 1,600 rpm. Horsepower is up by nearly 50 to 445 hp at 2,800 rpm – thanks in part to a new turbo design – while the 103 mm bore x 99 mm stroke remains identical.

The engine’s 910 lb-ft of torque puts it middle of the road between the Ford Super Duty’s 925 lb-ft and the Cummins Ram at 900 lb-ft, however, its 445 hp rating leaves GM with the horsepower crown versus Ram’s 385 hp and Ford’s 440 hp.

The new L5P Duramax is slotted for production at the GM-Isuzu plant in Moraine, Ohio, and will see action in both Heavy Duty Silverado and Sierra twins. The accidental release comes just days before GM’s new HD trucks are set to officially debut at the 2016 State Fair of Texas, where transmission and towing specs should be made available.

Nitto Ridge Grappler Tire Review
Sep 08, 2016 - 3:44 PM - by AutoGuide.com

The automotive industry has never been shy about making bold claims and grand proclamations. Every industry does this in marketing and sales pitches, but the automotive world especially filled with products hailed to be 'the toughest,' 'the most capable,' or 'the best yet.'

Whether looking to offer the best grip, longest tread life or toughest construction, off-road tires fall into these same marketing clichés. Like the trucks and SUVs claiming to be “the best,” tire manufacturers look to tell potential buyers: Invest in these tires because they are awesome!

The Ridge Grappler, Nitto’s newest off-road truck and SUV tire, makes its own bold proclamation by offering a tire that promises to walk the line between an all-terrain and a mud-terrain to provide the best of both worlds: great traction on trails with an aggressive, wide-void tire; and smooth and quiet on-road performance.

The Ridge Grappler promises great things with its 'best of both worlds' pitch, giving off-roaders who spend lots of time on the highway but still off-road on the weekend exactly what they want. But does the tire actually deliver on its promise? We spent the past few months looking to answer that question.
