Autoblog answers all your questions about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler

Six powertrains, eight trims — with photos and details about them all

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado engine lineup has finally been revealed, with a grand total of six making their way behind the all-new Chevy pickup's redesigned fascia.

Suppliers like AEV and ARB have announced new products

For years, the Toyota Tacoma has been the go-to option for off-road pickup trucks. Like the Jeep Wrangler, there seems to be endless support from the aftermarket for Tacoma owners. Thanks to the new Chevy Colorado, the Tacoma is no longer the only big player in the midsize-truck markert (sorry Nissan Frontier owners). The aftermarket is finally starting to take notice, too, with major suppliers like ARB and AEV offering new, unique products for one of our favorite Chevys.

Armada sails deep inland, outfitted with a mountain of gear

Nissan is throwing another multi-day overlanding bash ahead of the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, this week. Last year, the carmaker debuted the Titan Project Basecamp overlanding pickup at the expo. This year — even though Nissan's event is called "Titan Adventure" — Nissan went with a survivalist SUV called the Armada Mountain Patrol. Other than the fact that you're more likely to see a feral Martha Stewart in the deep woods eating canned rations before you'd see a bugge

Teased

The Arizona event will be streamed live on Facebook

Last month, Nissan announced it was working on a custom overlanding version of its largest SUV. Dubbed the Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol, it's a follow-up to last year's Nissan Titan XD Project Basecamp and the Nissan Armada Snow Patrol we drove earlier this year. Until now, all we've seen are early renderings, but the automaker has released a shadowy teaser image just ahead of the Mountain Patrol's full reveal tonight in Arizona.

Quick Spin

'Mixed feelings' would be a pretty good summation

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is the refreshed version of a model that debuted back in 2014. It was a controversial model. Opinions were mixed on the styling — especially the front fascia — and some considered it an insult to the Cherokee name. Still, we liked that version so much we spent a full year with one. It proved to be a solid and reliable crossover that racked up more than 27,000 miles in just 12 months.

It's a fast, exhaust-belching, brick-like raised SUV with huge wheels

Devel Motors has begun testing its Sixty, a 6x6 raised SUV suitable for the coming Ragnarok, and they've taken to the track to demonstrate its usefulness in, uh, outrunning the undead hordes that surely await us all.

Plus: The most fuel efficient Wrangler that Jeep has ever produced

I spy, with my little eye ... the future of the automotive world here in the United States. That pretty much sums up this week's Sunday Drive, in which we pull out the most popular stories on Autoblog of the previous week and try to draw some sort of conclusion as to what binds them all together. This week, it's spy shots, starting with one of the biggest and baddest muscle cars the world has ever seen: the Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

Report

A court-martial jury says he intentionally cut the parachute straps

A former U.S. Army sergeant has been found guilty of intentionally destroying three Humvees lost during a training exercise in which they were dropped from a cargo plane in Germany. The Humvees can be seen in the video above plunging to the ground after their parachute straps were severed.

And ... will BMW finally make an M7?

On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Senior Editor Alex Kierstein. We talk about our favorite cars from the 1990s, and the ones we've been driving recently. We also speculate about the BMW M7, talk about the Mercedes-AMG GT four-door, and reach a consensus (sort of) in this week's "Spend My Money" segment.

A rugged American success and a techy Japanese disappointment

Battling the Bentayga for title of most-coddling sport utility

Why did we ever expect the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to look like anything other than a Phantom on a lift kit, minus the trunk? The Rolls-Royce of SUVs perfectly employs Phantom cues, from the raised hood to the strong shoulder line and coach doors. The English off-roader brings a bunch of brand-redefining firsts with it, including all-wheel drive, an off-road driving mode, and a suspension that actively extends the dampers to keep every wheel on the ground. All of the vehicle's innovations serve the

Spy Shots

This previews a likely production version of the rugged overlander

Last year at SEMA, we saw a fairly radical Chevy Colorado ZR2 concept from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The already capable pickup had been fitted with a ton of gear for serious off-roading, including an upgraded suspension, 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, skid plates, a snorkel and a winch. We were in love. Then Chevrolet trademarked the "ZR2 Bison" name (AEV uses a bison in its logo), which had us hoping for a production version of the SEMA concept. Now, our spy shooters have caug

The new G 550 and G 63 vs Range Rover, LX 570 and Bentayga

During our first drive of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the all-new SUV's product manager was asked to identify competitors that might have been benchmarked in its development. The look on his face was about the same as if someone had asked him to recite King Lear in Klingon. As far as Andreas Hoeppel was concerned, the G 550 and AMG G 63 doesn't actually have a rival, or at least something the engineers and designers thought to compare it against. The G-Class is a G-Class, who cares what the

It was blue, the seats were plaid and it was shockingly easy to drive

It was like telling a fourth grade class they were going to Disneyland. Upon landing in southern France to drive the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the assembled group of jet lagged automotive writers were informed that they were not only about to drive the first next-generation G-Class ever (incredibly cool and exciting in its own right) but were also going to get a chance to drive a selection of classic G Wagens as well. An audible gasp was heard.

First Drive

All-new G 550 and G 63 don't lose the plot

The road ahead is unpaved, rock-strewn and rut-rich. Deep puddles blast murky water across the windshield. Colossal three-blade windmills tower overhead, perilously sprouting like whitewashed redwoods at the outer edges of corners. The urge is to play it safe, to tackle this rally proving ground with the sort of caution you'd normally take off road. But, this is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and to dawdle would be to miss out on the massive capabilities it possesses, which the majority of its

Plus a really interesting 'Spend My Money' segment

On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Associate Editor Joel Stocksdale. We talk about driving the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV we had at our office. We speculate about the Ford Maverick and Michigan Central Station, talk Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid news, and help spend a listener's money on a pair of vehicles.

No spare tire mounts here

Jeep has been particularly good at keeping the upcoming Jeep Wrangler pickup truck, affectionately referred to as Scrambler, under wraps, literally. It's very rare to see any portion of the truck sans bulky black fabric. But this time Jeep slipped up and left the tailgate of the truck totally exposed except for some paint.
