4x4 Dyno Allows For Year-Round Extreme Weather Testing

The FCA Tech Center's new 4x4 dyno allows engineers to perform year-round extreme weather testing.


Each year since 1983, Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine has named its 4x4 of the Year, and while Jeep has been honored with this award a dozen times, Land Rover has now claimed the distinction two out of the last three years. The Land Rover LR4 was the magazine's top off-road vehicle in 2011, and this year's top off-roader is the all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport.

Those looking for a full-size pickup alternative to what is offered by the American Big Three have two choices; the Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Titan. The latter of the two has received subtle updates for the 2013 model year, and its pricing has been announced.


The 2012 Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable off-roading vehicles on the planet, and Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road has taken notice. The Wrangler Rubicon has been named 4X4 of the Year by the magazine, beating the Dodge Ram Power Wagon for the honor.


It has been over 70 years since the first Jeep rolled off the assembly line. The legendary off-road machine was instrumental to the Allied victory in World War II, and it became such a big hit with servicemen that the CJ was built for civilians after the war.

The 2007 Tokyo Motor Show ended last week, but today we're cleaning out our closet of yet-to-be published posts from this biggest of biannual Japanese auto shows.


With the MINI Clubman rapidly approaching production, and the new cabrio coming along, the BMW-owned automaker is reportedly working on another variation of the theme: the MINI crossover.


We like offroading vids as much as anyone, because they show just how much many of the SUVs we roll in are actually capable of. We're also suckers for cool toys, and the video that follows the jump combines both of these interests to great effect. Pretty cool stuff...enjoy.
