The Top Zones - Mon, 04/23/2018 - 21:40

Filed under: ,,,,,,,

This could be the last year to score a Jaguar with the carmaker's 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Autocar reports that Jaguar deep-sixed the XE S and XF S in the UK due to poor sales and difficulty coping with European emissions regulation changes taking place this year. The mag expects the XJ and F-Pace to lose the V6, too, but suspects the F-Type might retain the engine. It's possible, however, the bent-six with up to 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque might finally be retiring for a reaso

Auto Blog News Feed: Watch the Rolls-Royce Cullinan tackle the sand dunes outside Dubai

The Top Zones - Sun, 04/22/2018 - 15:30

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is coming soon. The British automaker has made copious effort trying to keep the Cullinan from being considered just a crossover or SUV. The carmaker calls it an All-Terrain High-Sided Bodied Vehicle, and a feature as banal as a tailgate has been billed as a "Viewing Suite." Yet when Rolls-Royce took a prototype Cullinan for testing in the Dubai dunes, they recorded their Phantom-based SUV ripping up the sand in ways you'd expect from a 30-year-old Chevrolet Blazer.
