All-new and packed with tech, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator is a capable full-size SUV. Under the hood sits a twin-turbo V6 engine good for 450 hp, paired with a 10-speed transmission and made even more useful thanks to an aluminum alloy body that's nearly 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor. The three-row interior offers a total of six USB ports, four 12-volt power outlets and one 110V plug, WiFi for up to 10 devices, the Sync 3 infotainment system with CarPlay and Android Auto support, and an available Revel Ultima audio with 20 speakers. Drivers will enjoy the bolstered front seats with massage, heating and cooling functionality, 12-inch configurable instrument cluster, and speed-dependent adaptive lighting that widens the beam at low speeds for increased visibility and narrows as you accelerate to eliminate distractions. In fact, you can appreciate the truck's upgrades before you even enter, as it detects your approach automatically, lighting the interior, door handles, and interior ambient lights to give you both peace of mind and a sense of calm before you ever grip the wheel.
Mixing off-road ability with pavement-chewing power, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is one of the quickest SUVs in the world. It's powered by the same 6.2L, 707 hp supercharged V8 as its Hellcat cousins, but thanks to the all-wheel-drive system, it's a little faster. That means 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph, helped along by an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Styling changes are primarily functional, with an additional slit in the front fascia and an intake in place of the driver's side foglight to help route more air to the engine. Brembo brakes ensure you can get slowed down in a hurry, and the driver-focused cockpit and Bilstein shocks provide a comfortable ride at speed.
Adorned with a mix of organic and geometric shapes that give it a look simultaneously elegant and aggressive, the Infiniti QX80 Monograph is a look at the future of the full-size SUV design. The brand's signature double-arch grille remains intact here, only taller and wider than on the current model, and the D-pillar has also been reshaped, while the other pillars are hidden in service of creating a visor-like look for the windows and windshield.
You don't need to wait for the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept to become a reality to enjoy the same power with the convenience of four doors. The Mercedes-AMG GLC63 uses the same handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 Biturbo engine to deliver solid performance. Available in Coupe, SUV, and S Coupe guises, the former two offer 469 hp and 0-60 times of 3.9 seconds, while the latter gets 503 hp and hits 60 in just 3.7. No matter which model you choose, you also get an air spring suspension, 4matic+ all-wheel drive, an AMG Speedshift 9-speed transmission, and a Panamericana grille lifted straight from the AMG GT sports car.
We don't know how the new Wrangler will look. We hope it looks something like the Chelsea x Kahan Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk. Instantly identifiable by its redesigned four-slot grille and custom front bumper, it has a vented hood, a wider body and wider wheel arches than the stock model, and a crosshair exhaust system. It's available in a variety of exclusive colors, and a great take on an American classic.
Built by Rover's Special Vehicle Operations unit in collaboration with the Austrian Red Cross, the Land Rover Project Hero is designed to be a vital emergency response vehicle. It's based on the 3.0L TD6 of the new Discovery and has a roof-mounted drone to help provide live footage to teams on the ground. Using a world-first self-centring and magnetic retention system, it allows the drone to land safely back aboard even when the vehicle is in motion. Appropriately, the truck is outfitted with many communication systems, auxiliary LED lighting, power supply points that can support different plugs from different regions, and a heavy-duty sliding rear floor that can be deployed as an additional work surface. It will be shared between the Austrian Red Cross training centers in Erzberg and Vienna for the next six months.
