It's not the type of vehicle you'd drive to the mall, but if you're planning a multi-day adventure in the far reaches of the wilderness, the KiraVan is just what you're looking for. This modified Unimog is powered by a Mercedes-made 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine cranking out 260hp and 700ft-lb of torque, and its stretched frame makes room for a four-door cabin — more like a cockpit, really, thanks to its eleven display screens — and an articulating fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Speaking of the trailer, it works in conjunction with the tractor to offer 6-wheel drive at speeds up to 25mph, is fully capable of operating as a standalone base station, and features up to 3 sleeping areas, a full kitchen, a server-based media library, two computers with Internet connection, satellite HDTV, and even a 4K monitor. In other words, it's perfect for video shoots, research teams, or just a really posh camping trip.
It's hard to believe that Stuttgart's sports car in an oversized body has been around for over a decade, but with two generations under its belt, it's hitting its stride with the next-generation 2015 Porsche Cayenne. Available in four varieties — Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, and the all-new Cayenne S E-Hybrid — this sporty SUV features a sharper, cleaner design, power output between 240-520hp, with the S getting an entirely new 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine that mixes power with fuel economy, Bi-Xenon headlights on the Diesel, S, and S E-Hybrid models and LED headlights on the Turbo, and all the interior and handling refinements that the brand is famous for.
