Big changes for a large SUV stalwart

Hot on the heels of the announcement that the current Suburban RST will get the engine it should have had in the first place – the 6.2-liter V8 – we have spy shots of the next Suburban, and a glimpse of a major change underneath.

Hope rekindled that a diesel Mazda will hit American dealers soon

We get it – we're a little sick of getting a few years of assurances that Mazda's much-anticipated diesel engine is just around the corner. First, it was going to go in the 2014 Mazda6. More recently, Mazda told us it'd first land in the CX-5 – and in fact, there's a part of the Mazda USA website devoted to the diesel crossover, which makes it seem more legitimate than previous pronouncements. But the fact of the matter is, there's some unforeseen hiccup in the government approval pr

Audi's super sedan bares all

The extra-fast version of Audi's flagship A8, the 2019 Audi S8, is basically ready to go if these spy shots are any indication. The super sedan was spied without any camouflage at all, sliding around on the Nürburgring. Though subtle, there are a number of visual cues that give it away as the performance version of the full-size Audi.

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.

The trend continues

The upcoming Chevrolet crossover SUV, frequently referred to as Chevy Blazer until the company officially announces the name, has been spotted once again. This time, Chevy engineers left the Blazer's lights on, giving us a glimpse at some new design details. Up front it appears the Blazer will have split headlights, much like those seen on the Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Kona, and the previous generation Jeep Cherokee. The main lamps are low in the front fascia, with LED running lights higher up.

Take a look at that big wing

The Lamborghini Aventador S is Sant'Agata's current king. It's 6.5-liter V12 churns out 730 horsepower and 509 pound feet of torque. It has a top speed of more than 200 mph. Its looks put anything to come out of Wayne Enterprises to shame in the best possible way. Still, as shown with the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, there's always room for more. Just take a look at these new spy shots of the upcoming Aventador SV Jota.

We hope Audi sees the light and gifts it to Americans

There's something really wonderful about performance wagons. Just this past week, we've had a 2018 Volvo V90, 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake and a 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo pass through Fort Autoblog. While these are all wonderful in their own way, Americans still miss out on some really good stuff from Europe, like the new 2019 Audi S6 Avant we see here in camouflaged garb.

Ford's tiny SUV looks ready for a redo

The 2018 Ford EcoSport small SUV has only just arrived, but we're already getting a glimpse of what's more than likely the next version of this subcompact sport-utility. That's because while the EcoSport is new to the U.S. — where it takes on the likes of pint-size rivals like the Chevrolet Trax, Kia Soul, and Honda HR-V — the model itself has been present in other global markets since 2012.
