We spent some time in the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat 2021, drove the 2022 Toyota 86 and our spy photographer spotted the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE class. It’s the week in reverse, right here at Motor Authority.
We drove the most practical Hellcat, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. It’s a ridiculous machine that can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds while devouring fuel and accommodating up to six passengers in three rows of seats. It’s absolutely unnecessary, but very satisfying.
The exterior of the 2022 Toyota Tundra was revealed last week, and this week we took our first look at the inside. The teaser picture of a likely TRD Pro model posted by Toyota on Twitter featured what appeared to be a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a steering wheel with a red 12 o’clock stripe.
Professional racing driver Ken Gushi drove us in the 2022 Toyota 86. From the right seat, it felt like the sports car was going 100 km / h faster than the 6.1 seconds advertised by Toyota, but it’s the updated suspension setup that impressed Gushi the most. Subtle changes make the 86 feel like “a completely different car,” according to Gushi.
We took a jaunt in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2021 and believe that it will go down in history at Peak ICE. From the way it chokes the road to the turbo engines that propel the big flagship forward, the latest S-Class is everything a luxury sedan should be.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class 2022 was seen as a prototype on public roads in Europe. With a redesigned front bumper and lighting elements, plus a new wheel design, the changes to the slightly freshened luxury crossover SUV will be hard to spot. Inside, the steering wheel of the latest S-Class appears to be adopted instead of the double-spoke design of the latest E-Class.
