It is sometimes the simplest spark which creates the burning desire to get out and explore. For some, it is a family camping trip, a destination. For my wife and me, it was a car which symbolized freedom and adventure at an impressionable age. My very first experience behind the wheel of a 4x4 was with a Land Rover Defender. I did not know at the time, but it would be the catalysis for a burning desire to acquire my very own box-on-wheels. My wife and I had rented one when we first got together for a day trip on Fraser Island, Australia – the largest sand Island in the world! Prior to this, we had never gone off-road in a 4x4, and we were woefully inexperienced. If I am being…

nowhere to run

The all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Police Responder has the best acceleration of any pursuit-rated police vehicle tested: helping law enforcement officers respond quickly to emergencies. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department test data – as well as preliminary test results from Michigan State Police – show the 2021 F-150 Police Responder, America’s only pursuit-rated pick-up truck, had the fastest zero-to-60-miles-per-hour, zero-to-100-miles-per-hour, and quarter-mile times of any law enforcement vehicle – including SUVs and sedans. Greg Ebel, Ford Police Vehicle Brand Manager, said: “Vehicle acceleration and speed contribute to how quickly first responders can safely arrive at an emergency scene. Shaving even a few seconds off response times can make a big difference. Whether responding to an accident on the highway or a distress call from somewhere off-road, law enforcement officers can…

to infinity and beyond!

Land Rover was a part of Virgin Galactic’s completed mission of its first-ever fully-crewed space flight, with Founder Sir Richard Branson on board as one of four Mission Specialists. The SpaceShipTwo Unity craft traveled with four Mission Specialists and two Pilots on-board. The six-strong crew started and completed their mission at Spaceport America in New Mexico. Sir Branson arrived for the ‘Unity 22’ mission in a Range Rover Astronaut Edition; and, after a safe landing, his spacecraft was towed back by a Land Rover Defender 110 to waiting well-wishers. The company’s fourth crewed spaceflight was the first to carry a full crew. Those in the cabin experienced out-of-seat weightlessness and incredible views of Earth from space. Audiences around the world watched a livestream of the space fligh: seeing first-hand the extraordinary experience Virgin…

grenadier interior reveal

Toby Ecuyer, Head of Design at Grenadier, said: “When we started thinking about the Grenadier’s interior, we looked carefully at modern aircraft, boats, and even tractors for inspiration; where switches are sited for optimal function, regular controls are close to hand, auxiliary ones are further away. You can see the same approach in the Grenadier: the layout is functional and logical – designed with ease of use in mind. It has everything you need and nothing you don’t.” Toggle switches and dials on the center and overhead consoles are widely spaced and clearly labeled. Auxiliary switches have been built in – pre-wired to support the addition of winches, work lights, and other accessories. Advanced technology is included only where it benefits functionality and usability. The infotainment system is accessed via…
