Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can't get away from work — so instead of staying in the office, take the office with you in the Brabus 800 iBusiness Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG. Based on the Mercedes G 65, but completely kitted out from front to back, this G Wagon sports a 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine that produces 800 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of electronically-limited torque. Inside it's powered by a slew of Apple devices, including a Mac Mini, an Apple TV, an iPad and an iPod touch, all integrated into the entertainment system and controlled by an iPhone app. The inside has been entirely refinished in fine leather and Alcantara, with articulating rear seats replacing the standard bench. And with an integrated high-speed modem and WLAN, you may just find you do all your work from the road.
Choosing a car can be hard. Do you go for speed, comfort, or utility? With the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, you don't have to pick just one. Powered by a 5.0L supercharged V8 producing 542 hp, this sleek station wagon moves from 0 to 60 in just 4.6 seconds and boasts a top speed of 186 miles per hour. This power gets to the ground via an eight-speed automatic transmission and 20-inch forged alloy wheels with custom Pirelli tires, but lest you think it's all about performance, the interior boasts a 825W, 18-speaker Meridian audio system, additional headroom, remote-folding rear seats to open up massive cargo room, and premium materials, including carbon leather. The downside? You'll likely have to head to the UK to get one.
The original Evoque was a car with an identity crisis — caught somewhere between a crossover SUV and a hatchback — but for its latest derivative, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic maybe that's okay. Finding itself squarely on the hot hatch end of the spectrum, the Autobiography Dynamic's 2-liter turbo four-cylinder gets a significant power bump, bringing it up to 285 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Other goodies include much larger front disk brakes, torque vectoring by braking to better distribute the car's power while improving handling, and a vibrant orange paint job.
Normally car updates include a handful of small changes — but when you haven't had a major update in 7 years, there's lots to talk about. As it is with the 2015 Lincoln Navigator. Powered by a twin-turbo, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 creating at least 370 hp, this new full-size SUV has been brought up to speed with features like MyLincoln Touch with Sync and an 8-inch touchscreen, dual displays around the speedometer, HID headlamps with LED running and taillights, standard 20-inch rims with 22-inchers available as an option, an updated cabin, a blind-spot detection system, and, obviously, an all-new body. But with all these changes, one thing remains the same: it's still great for hauling large groups of people (or things) in style.
Don't let the name fool you — you don't need to be on the front lines battling Vietcong to drive the Starwood Full Metal Jacket Jeep ($107,000). But we're willing to bet it would be just as at home on the battlefield as it is on the toughest friendly terrain. This heavily-customized Jeep Wrangler features a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 285 horsepower, letting it get from zero to 60 in 8.4 seconds (not bad for something this big). A fully-upgraded suspension and lift kit, LED light bars all around, and kevlar panels on the interior and exterior make it one bad ride.
When you're heading out into the wild, you don't want a car masquerading as an SUV — you want a real, rugged off-roader. Like the 2014 Toyota 4Runner ($33,000 and up). Built using proven body-on-frame construction methods, this stout vehicle features a towing capacity of up to 4,700 lbs, an optional Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, and a 270hp, 4.0L V6 engine offering up to 22 mpg, ensuring that you won't run out of gas if you trek farther into the wilderness than you'd planned. And for those times when you're forced back into civilization, it features a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, optional navigation and app support, a backup camera, an optional sliding rear cargo deck, and up to three rows of seating, giving you plenty of room for your gear when you're out on the trail and your friends when you're not.
Sponsored by our friends at Toyota. We're all born wild. The trick is staying that way. 4Runner remains a rugged beast of a body on frame. The perfect companion for those brave enough to keep it wild.
Ahead of the official release of their upcoming GLA Class, Mercedes has announced a limited edition run of the 2014 Mercedes GLA Edition 1 ($TBA). While under the skin it's basically the same (a turbocharged two-liter, four-cylinder engine with 211 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque), on the surface it gets a different treatment unique to this preview model. It sports blacked out mirrors, trim, and headlights, and a set of 19-inch wheels, with a very limited five paint options. Inside it gets all-brown leather upholstery with beige inserts, stainless steel control surfaces, an aluminum-trimmed instrument panel, and a three-spoke steering wheel. Unfortunately, it won't be available in the USA, but if anyone wants to send us one, we wouldn't complain.
While the current-generation Range Rovers have all the serious off-road capabilities you'd expect, the majority of these sleek SUVs will never leave the pavement. So why not make them even more luxurious and presidential. As it's name implies, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Long Wheelbase ($TBA) is a slightly stretched edition with a longer wheelbase (not seen from Land Rover in about 20 years) that gives you (or your kids, boss, or king) lots of room to spread out. With seats that recline 17 degrees, side door blinds, a panoramic sunroof, lots of storage, massive 22-inch wheels, and an immaculately appointed interior, there's few other SUVs that offer more. Available this March.
The monster luxury SUV you've all been waiting for is finally here, and the 2015 Cadillac Escalade ($TBA) is better than ever. Under the roof you'll find an interior wrapped in leather and wood from front to back, a quieter ride due to a stronger body structure, sound dampening, and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology. Under the hood a 420 horsepower 460 lb-ft torque 6.2-liter V8 pushes both the two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive variants, while variable-assist power steering and cylinder deactivation help it get more miles between fill-ups. The dash is also crammed with tech — a 12.3-inch digital gauge display and an eight-inch center screen connect you with the car, using touch and gesture recognition, proximity sensors, and voice recognition. Choose between standard, luxury, and premium models to add 22-inch wheels, driver awareness technology, and a driver assist package.
So you've got your beach house — and a great little boat at the end of your pier for jetting around the water — now what you really need is a Moke International ($TBA) for cruising on land. If you've spent any measure of time in a beach town, you may have run across one of its older siblings, but this model is brand new, and ready for modern roads. Choose between a gasoline-powered four-cylinder version, or a completely-electric version. They come in a number of colors, including orange, red, green, yellow, blue, white, and of course, black.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ($TBA) isn't your average grocery-getter — sure, this crossover SUV is fit for the roads, but it's also a pretty capable off-road adventurer. Powered by a turbocharged two-liter, four-cylinder engine producing a healthy 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, it'll overtake drivers on the highway and get you comfortably to your mountain getaway (thanks in-part to 4-Matic all-wheel drive). Its striking design features give the GLA a powerful look without sacrificing aerodynamics. Inside, a flexible cargo-area and rear-folding seats give you plenty of room for skis and backpacks, or a whole-lot of toilet paper from Costco.
The genre-defying Infiniti Q30 Concept ($TBA) at once combines the aggressive appearance of a coupe, the spaciousness of a hatch, and the posture of a crossover. Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, details on the power plant remain scant — though we hope its horsepower and torque matches its sporty-yet-outdoorsy look. Its image communicates the carmakers' desire to produce something that will appeal to the car-purchase-averse younger set (though, as an Infiniti, its price tag may put it out of the buying range of most of that demo). Regardless, it represents an exciting direction for the often-innovative Hong Kong-based company.
