Image inside 2015 Hummer HX Warthog concept

By NellyTheGreat - 2 days ago




2014 Hummer HX -A production model of the HX Concept you see here is based could be the key for GM, if you want to continue as a lobster, the potential volume of the brand alive. At 171 inches long, the 2014 Hummer HX is shorter than the H3. Its 3.6-liter direct-injection V-6 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque is set – more than the H3 I-5 – and E85. The selection box is the 6L50 six-speed automatic GM, and no full-time 4WD with center differential lock system. Stopping power is courtesy of massive 15-inch Brembos on all four corners, with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear. The files are hidden behind 20-inch wheels with 35-inch custom Bridgestone Dueler. Hummer 2014 Hummer HX Concept rear three-quarters of the suspension is no slouch either. Fox Racing coilover suspension with shock absorbers and springs 2 inch 2.5 inch support independent suspension front and rear, although the lack of solid axles is sure to make purists balk and also a lot of suspension travel and ground clearance. HX also has impressive approach and departure angles back. Can a level of 60 percent, 40 percent and Ford embankment six feet under water, and to deal with four seats. To protect important components below, the Hummer HX 2014 is equipped with a floor full armor kit.

Other off-road equipment includes tow hooks front and rear electric winch on the front bumper. Hummer HX Concept Side View GM says the 2014 Hummer HX by a trio of young designers designed and it shows. While undoubtedly a Hummer HX, while that looks like it on the battlefield of a video game or a sci-fi one with a laser turret in the back. There is more to the HX, it seems, however. His inspiration Hummvee rear roof slope can be removed, making it a Chevrolet Avalanche-esque SUT or replaced by a traditional square wagon as one unit. The roof is removable and centrally, such as doors and fender flares, which was a staple of the Jeep Wrangler since the beginning of time.

2014 Hummer HX eat are designed to be compact and lightweight, and four are equipped with a four-point harness. Aluminum is used through the interior of the level of inspiration, with carpet to make a rubberized configuration. Not that a USB connection for MP3 player and stereo speakers only. The group of three-pod gauge used LCD screens, different patterns can be displayed and has two modes – road and off-road – the main difference between them is that the central pod, a speedometer / tachometer indicator is wheel angle. The group is also a navigation system and a compass. Is it the harbinger of a long talk HX H4? Is likely. This should not happen before 2010, H4, GM are more for those who are more interested in beating long enough to achieve a classic design and a soft suspension for the consumer, the dirt or gravel road.

2014 Hummer HX is a body-on-frame, rear-wheel drive SUV on its own chassis. Young designers offers a modern version of the Hummer grille, and the concept has built a standard for the “full protection from the underbody and wheels 35 inches. The suspension is independent at the front and a solid shaft to the rear axle

Image inside Man lists his Tesla Model S as an $85-a-night Airbnb room

By thetfd - 3 days ago



If someone tells you he's been sleeping in a car, you'd most likely think he's either traveling on a budget or going through a rough patch. And, you know what? Either answer's probably true -- unless he meant he's been renting a Tesla Model S to sleep in from Airbnb for $85 a night. Because, yes, that listing seriously exists. A man from Phoenix, Arizona has listed his electric car on the rent-a-place website, calling it the "world's first Tesla hotel." According to the listing, the Model S with an airbed in the back will be locked securely in his attached garage, though you'll also have access to his condo's kitchen and bathroom.

You can turn up the AC or the heater as you see fit, use the car's entertainment system to listen to internet radio and light up the interior with the two electric candles he'll provide. Plus, he can drive you around for an extra fee if you'd like to spend more time with the Model S, because you do have to get up and step out of the car by 8AM so he can ride it to work. Just take note, though, that while the airbed is wide enough to fit two people, you're going to have a bad time if you're taller than 6'6. As the listing says, "NO NBA players allowed," but then again, we're pretty sure pro-basketball players can afford to buy their own Model S and to rent proper hotel rooms.

Video inside Al Jumps over 2 Sportbikes

By NyShow - 3 days ago





Apparently there is this guy named Al, and he’s really good at jumping over things. He’s so good at jumping over things, he goes by the name “Al the Jumper” — obviously.

Al has some pretty crazy ideas too, and that means he finds himself jumping over some pretty radical things — like in this case, where he jumps over two motorcycles that are speeding at him.

It’s an exercise in detailed planning, accurate execution, relentless training, and of course massive huevos.

Image inside Liberty Walk Widebody Dodge Challenger Is Pure Muscle

By djkamikaze - 6 days ago





The Dodge Challenger is already an impressive piece of muscle the second it rolls off the line. In the hands of the guys at Liberty Walk, though, this one has become a real jaw dropper. This car just made its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon and it is about as muscle as muscle can possibly get.

Liberty Walk has done quite a few widebody kits for supercars, but this Dodge Challenger isn’t a supercar. What it got is perfectly befitting of its American muscle heritage: flared fenders and exposed bolts apertures combined with a lower stance that makes it hug the road.

There are also new wheels and bold, wider tires, as well as spoilers and plenty of additional functional body work that are all part of a full aerodynamic kit. They’ve also modified the suspension so this thing is ready to take on all corners.

Exact details on what they’ve done to this Dodge Challenger as far as power upgrades and specifications have not been released, but you can bet that when that info comes out it’ll have you wanting to park one of these in your driveway.

Image inside 2015 Jeep Renegade

By djkamikaze - 6 days ago

















The 2015 Jeep Renegade has been a puzzle ever since it was revealed — a subcompact crossover, built in Europe, yet wearing the Jeep name and traditional grille, like an Italian schoolboy holding Captain America's shield.

While Jeep traditionalists will reflexively cast aspersions toward any Jeep without a ladder frame, folding windshield, and removable doors — let alone a wee SUV that’s built in a Fiat plant in Italy — the square-jawed Grand Cherokee has shown us that the company can do crossovers pretty Jeep-ly, too. Still, we and many other insiders were skeptical about the Renegade, primarily for two reasons, and their names are Compass and Patriot. These unconvincing compact crossovers suggested that Jeep-ness may not be scalable this far down the food chain.

But after a thorough test through the California hills, we can say the Renegade is a wholeheartedly better vehicle in every conceivable respect. Especially Jeep-ness.

Start with the design. Oversize round headlamps and a seven-slot grille give the Renegade an unmistakable Jeep face. The T-square profile, upright windshield and side windows, abbreviated overhangs, and trapezoidal fenders are also Jeep-isms that have been brewing for decades. Four trims are offered: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and 4X4-only Trailhawk, the latter riding about an inch higher than other 4X4 models and a full two inches higher than the car-like front-drivers. The Trailhawk is also sprinkled with butch body addenda: a matte black hood patch, red front/rear tow hooks, a 3-mm skid plate, gloss black panels over the windows, and black 17-inch wheels with white letter all-terrain tires. The Limited, by contrast, plays dress-up with a metallic grille (versus black for the other three grades), matching mirror caps, and 18-inch wheels, versus 16s for the Sport and base Latitude.

Interestingly, while the Renegade offers no canvas roof, a la Wrangler, all trims offer two removable “My Sky” panels over the seating area that come off in two sections and stow in the fitted bag in the back. Each panel unlatches with a key and weighs a feathery 10 pounds, making them easily removable by one person. After a bit of rehearsal, we got the procedure down to about one minute. Latitude trims and above also offer a power sliding front panel, but even the powered version remains fully removable. Sure, it can get a little windy with all windows lowered and the roof panels removed, but as with the Wrangler, that’s kind of the point.

Jeep designers clearly had fun with the Renegade’s vibrant color schemes and its numerous Jeep-themed “Easter eggs” (some obvious, others less so) for owners to discover over time. We counted more than a dozen Jeep “faces,” at least as many Jerrycan-inspired “X” graphics, topographical maps represented on the seat fabric and center console cubby; the words “Since 1941” embossed on the infotainment bezel; a pictogram of an old Willys crawling up the lower right corner of the windshield like a spider; and the redline on the tach that looks like it was hit by a paintball. There’s even a yeti in there somewhere, though we’re not telling where.

Not only does the Renegade pull off all this kitsch without looking like Romper Room, but it does so without compromising ergonomic soundness or looking cheap. The dashboard is smartly arranged, and higher trim levels feature a sophisticated, high-resolution information screen between the primary gauges. The optional Uconnect 6.5 system features voice texting, remote starting and locking, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Upright windows and tall roof enhance the sense of spaciousness and excellent outward vision while affording the cargo area real space (unlike, say, the Nissan Juke). If we had any bones to pick, it would be the hard, flat back seat.

We spent the day driving two distinctly different versions: a mid-grade Renegade Latitude, which Jeep expects to comprise the bulk of Renegade sales, and a Trailhawk. The front-wheel-drive Latitude tester was equipped with the base combo, a 160-hp 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 184 lb-ft of torque mated solely to a six-speed manual transmission. The turbo four is wonderfully smooth and quiet if rather laggy, but the six-speed shifter is delightful to row through the gates, with a soft metallic cue-ball shifter and positive shift action. Standard Koni shocks impart a surprisingly firm but hardly brittle ride, though the body does roll a bit in corners. Surprisingly, the steering is quick and obedient, as are the pleasantly linear brakes.

The Renegade’s available nine-speed automatic transmission comes only with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which, turbo-less as it is, produces 180 horsepower and just 175 lb-ft of torque. This is the only powertrain offered in the brawnier Trailhawk model, and, as with the base powertrain, it is hardly a sprinter off the line. The 2.4 is also somewhat gruffer than the turbo four. That said, the Trailhawk surprised us with its smoother highway ride and lower noise levels. Yes, the off-roader is the cushier one.

While it’s highly doubtful that too many Renegade customers will venture far off-road, Jeep knew that the Renegade would have to demonstrate some basic capability to be considered a real Jeep. Hence, all Renegade 4X4s have at least 7.9 inches of ground clearance and feature nifty SelecTerrain dials that tailor transmission, engine, steering, and four-wheel drivetrain characteristics to match the selected surface. Trailhawk models go a big step further with their Active Drive Low transfer case providing a 20:1 crawl ratio for slow-speed rock-climbing, while the ABS and the electronic stability control system help prevent wheels from spinning wildly when they lose contact with the ground, as did ours countless times while traversing a challenging route through California’s Hollister Hills state park. We also put the hill descent control to the test on a silt-covered grade so steep we were left dangling by the seatbelts, yet the vehicle maintained a perfectly controlled, one-mph first gear crawl that elicited no shortage of groans from the constantly pulsing brakes but exactly none from the occupants.

Off-road, the Renegade’s super-stiff structure is clearly evident. Indeed, some of the vehicular contortions we managed might twist lesser crossovers like a pretzel, but nary a squeak or a pop could be heard inside the Renegade. The Trailhawk’s approach, departure, and break-over angles (which are 31, 26 and 34 degrees, respectively) allowed us to traverse obstacles we might not have attempted even in a Wrangler. There we were, putting the Trailhawk up on three wheels, sometimes teetering on just two, while its all-terrain tires clawed voraciously over craggy rocks. We were mildly reassured that in the event one of them succumbed to a particularly sharp edge, a full-size spare tire sat under the cargo floor.

The 2015 Renegade goes on sale in March, with prices starting at $18,990, $22,290 and $25,790 for Sport, Latitude, and Limited trims, respectively (add about $2,000 for four-wheel drive). The 4X4-only Trailhawk starts at $26,990, which the way we see it, is a reasonably attractive price for a bona-fide Jeep.

Article inside GM Considering Electric AWD for Future Cadillac and Chevy Models

By deziking - 6 days ago




According to Edmunds, General Motors is developing a high performance electric all-wheel drive system for next-gen V-Series Cadillac models as well their crossovers (less of a chance). This system could make its way to other, currently rear-wheel drive, cars.

Alpha-platform-based models such as the Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Camaro and even the Corvette could be candidates to receive the e-AWD transplant. Despite being difficult to implement, it could end up solving much of GM's fuel-efficiency issues as well as helping them get back into the game against fast German coupes or saloons (Audi RS, Merc AMG, Porsche Turbo) that send power to all four wheels. Even BMW is apparently getting in the game.

The 2016 Acura NSX is a perfect example of a two seater sports car with electric all-wheel drive. Even though there's no timetable or even the slightest hint that it would be in the works as of right now, we can't help but imagine GM making this technology available to its Corvette range somewhere in the future - perhaps even as soon as the next-gen model, which is still years away.

President of Cadillac, Johan de Nysschen confirmed in Detroit that retrofitting such a system on current generation cars is not practical and that new platforms must be designed for it.

Regardless of how late this technology makes its way into GM' cars, it will surely be most welcome by car enthusiasts around the world.
It's slowly spreading. :dead:
