nascar all in battle for daytona

With NASCAR All In: Battle for Daytona now streaming exclusively on the MotorTrend app, there’s no better way to get behind the scenes with Cup Series drivers and teams as they prepared for the biggest race of the year, the season-opening Daytona 500. Right out of the gate, All In jumps into the lives of three Cup drivers, their teams, and their families. Narrated by Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, the first episode’s opening scene occurs just 30 days prior to Daytona. You’ll meet Richard Childress Racing scion Austin Dillon, who explains the heavy expectations on his shoulders as he seeks to push the team founded by his grandfather, Richard Childress, back to the front of the Cup Series field. Despite his victory in the 2018 Daytona 500, Dillon also acknowledges the doubt…

best of the chicago auto show

2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Wearing a new “Desert Rated” badge, the Gladiator Mojave trades “Trail Rated” rock crawling chops for Ford Raptor–like desert running skills. The 2.5-inch Fox remote reservoir shocks and exclusive hydraulic jounce bumpers cushion whoops and bumps, and 33-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires provide grip in sand. Dana 44 axles (with an electronic rear locker) get 4.10 gears, which, along with the new transfer case’s 2.72 low range, allow it to hit 50 mph in four low. 2021 Mercedes-Benz Weekender The factory-built camper van returns, this time as a Mercedes-Benz Metris upfitted by Driverge Vehicle Innovations to create a pop-up camper for up to four people. The rear bench seat folds flat for sleeping, the front seats swivel 180 degrees for hanging out, there’s a pop-up table, and an auxiliary…

2020 mazda cx-30

Mazda doesn’t try with the CX-30—it simply does. The brand’s newest small crossover, slotting between the CX-3 and CX-5, is as light on pretense as it is in back-road-carving ability. If the CX-30 looks like a lifted Mazda3 Hatchback, that’s because it essentially is. Based on the same architecture, the CX-30 rides 1.4 inches higher and stands about 5 inches taller than its hatchback counterpart, but it’s 2.6 inches more compact in length. Cargo volume measures 20.2 cubic feet behind the second row, just 0.1 more than the Mazda3 hatch. Oddly, it has 1.9 fewer cubes with the second row folded. Like the Mazda3, style is a CX-30 selling point. However, outward visibility is a drawback to those looks. The CX-30’s high beltline and large D-pillars conspire to make some considerable blind…

2021 kia seltos

The 2021 Seltos represents the fifth member of Kia’s SUV family and will slot between the Soul and Sportage. It offers a more conventional crossover design than the Soul, but it stays on the larger end of the subcompact SUV range. Familiar engines are employed: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 146 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque and a 1.6-liter turbo that’s good for 175 hp and 195 lb-ft. The naturally aspirated engine is coupled to a CVT; the turbo gets a seven-speed dual-clutch. What’s odd is the structure of the trims, as there are two base models—one with less equipment and standard all-wheel drive and another with more features and front-drive, but both can be upgraded. The first thing I noticed is how well the steering was weighted on the SX 1.6-liter turbo.…

2021 porsche cayman gts 4.0

Like GTS versions of other Porsche models, the Cayman GTS is a cleverly concocted mix of performance-enhancing hardware and value-added standard equipment wrapped in signature black-themed visuals. But what has everyone talking is one thing only—the engine. It displaces 4.0 liters. It has six cylinders. And there’s not a turbo to be found. Hallelujah! The Cayman GTS is powered by what is essentially a bored and stroked 992-series engine, minus the turbochargers. Peak power is 394 hp at 7,000 rpm, with peak torque of 309 lb-ft available between 5,000 and 6,500 rpm. There’s more to the Cayman GTS than the spec sheet suggests. The 4.0-liter naturally aspirated engine gives the GTS a deliciously nuanced top-end fluency the turbo-powered Caymans simply can’t match. Redlined at 7,800 rpm, it doesn’t have the unworldly top-end…
