The sport utility vehicle has grown in popularity. It has gone from a niche vehicle to a market favourite. However, not all are equal. Some are much more comfortable than others in the dirt. Some SUVs are retained by their owners. Vehicles like the Range Rover Evoque. An SUV that can have real off-road credentials. But became trapped in a life of asphalt cruising and general laying duties.


Those aside, there are some real hardcore off-road SUVs out there. Vehicles designed to tackle any type of terrain, in any weather. A Range Rover is excellent for traversing mountains and wading through rivers. But a Range Rover also has a bad reputation for reliability, and reliability is something anyone who ventures off-road needs.

Off-roading takes skill and demands a lot of attention from the driver. No off-road driver needs continuous distraction. Especially the one that comes from the concern of poor reliability. So, for those looking to head out into the wild, these are the 10 most reliable off-road SUVs ever made.

ten The Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler was designed to go anywhere. It offers rugged reliability and huge amounts of dependability. It’s an instantly recognizable design that has barely changed from decade to decade. And so much the better for that. An iconic vehicle with a huge cult following around the world.

A Jeep Wrangler is a pretty basic machine. It features a separate body and frame. Offers low and high speeds. Everything is tried and tested. It is an all-terrain vehicle that breaks all records and enjoys a solid reputation. Standard or modified, their capacity and reliability are legendary.

9 The Toyota FJ Cruiser

It’s a Toyota. This alone should build confidence in reliability. And the FJ Cruiser is no exception. It may look like a retro-styled concept vehicle. But the Toyota FJ Cruiser is a capable off-roader. It’s loaded with specialized features and great for tackling the tough stuff.

The 4.0-liter V6 is a powerful unit. The owners are delighted with its quality. It also takes high mileage well. All versions have plenty of power under the hood. The interior features easy-to-wash materials. The 4×4 system also ensures that the FJ Cruiser has plenty of grip on all surfaces.

8 The Chevrolet Blazer

The Chevrolet Blazer is a historic vehicle. It paved the way for modern SUVs and took hold in the 90s. A huge range of engines, trim levels and specifications have been offered over the years. All have a fantastic mix of on-road and off-road performance.

Regularly voted best in class, the Blazer has won over a legion of enthusiasts. With each generation it has continued to offer high levels of reliability. Many owners keep their vehicle for decades. They often use them as a reliable second vehicle in bad weather.

seven The Land Rover Defender

There was nothing glamorous about the original Land Rover Defender. It was a simple vehicle, designed to perform a hard day’s work in the worst conditions imaginable. Farmers loved them. Capable of taking a beating, the Defender would carry on regardless. It is a sturdy vehicle.

The Camel Trophy event highlighted the Defender’s prowess. Grueling expeditions on the world’s most demanding terrains. The Land Rover Defender has it all. It went where other SUVs feared and did it without causing a mechanical problem. He’s a real 4×4 hero.

6 The Ford Bronco

The Ford Bronco is an SUV pioneer. It made its way into the market long before SUVs were all the rage. Built to last, older models will cope with everyday use in harsh climates. The classic Bronco was very popular with buyers. Thanks to its robust construction and easy to drive behavior.

The reborn Ford Bronco took up the torch. It has already impressed with its off-road capabilities. Equipped with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6, the Bronco has 330 hp to play. That’s a lot of power to use when you’re climbing up the side of a dusty mountain or across a field.

5 The Subaru Forester

In the 90s, Subaru installed a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in its family SUV. In doing so, they created an all-terrain weapon. Early Forester turbos offered tremendous pace on all surfaces. It offered practicality with mechanics that wouldn’t let a driver down.

Later, the Forester got a facelift. It got bigger and more like what people expected an SUV to look like. He has lost none of his abilities. The XT model even has a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine developing 237 hp. The Forester may have grown up, but it’s still fun.

4 The Hummer H1

Tall, brash and wearing designer military boots. The Hummer H1 is a civilian version of the famous Humvee reserved for the military. What the H1 can achieve may be as impressive as its bold silhouette. It can cross 30 inches of water and climb a 22 inch step.

The only downside is that it may be a little too big for conventional off-roading. But that said, it can still go further than many of its rivals. Loaded with specialist gear to traverse any terrain. The Hummer H1 isn’t afraid to get its tires dirty. As long as the trail is wide.

3 The Suzuki Jimny

The Suzuki Jimny proves that not all off-roaders need to be big, beefy machines. With less than 60 hp on tap in older versions, it’s a well-respected mud stopper. A vehicle that relies on its compact dimensions. Its lightweight construction allows it to access places inaccessible to some 4x4s.

The latest version looks amazing. A square-jawed miniature brawler. Its 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine develops only 100 hp. But he uses it wisely. He’s not a cute suitor. It’s an SUV capable of putting much more expensive and complicated vehicles to shame.

2 The Porsche Cayenne Turbo

The Porsche Cayenne came quite late to the SUV party. Her appearance has also divided opinion. These were later blown away by the Turbo versions. An SUV that delivered almost supercar levels of performance. Still, he was no runway star. It could still easily steer off-road.

The first Cayenne Turbo S developed 514 hp, thanks to a 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8. It featured a low-range gearbox, locking differential, and adjustable air suspension. This gave it very good off-road performance. Much better than most people expected.

1 The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen

The G-Wagen started life as a military vehicle. It has been described as one of the finest off-road vehicles ever made. And has three locking differentials, a rare feature on a passenger vehicle. Early versions are horribly slow on the road. But extremely competent.

Now something of a fashion icon. The G-Wagen received many updates over its life. A vast choice of versions constitutes the rear catalogue. With notable additions from the AMG tuning group. A sniffling 621bhp V12 twin-turbo monster is particularly noteworthy.

On September 19, 2022, around 11:00 p.m., Anne Arundel County Police Officers responded to the area of ​​westbound Route 100 between Oakwood Road and Quarterfield Road in Glen Burnie for an accident involving multiple vehicles.

Investigation revealed that a 2009 Lexus SUV was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes when it collided head-on with a 2011 Honda Civic. At the same time, a 1994 Chevrolet minivan was traveling westbound when she rounded a curve in the roadway and hit the Lexus head-on. The Chevrolet van began to spin when it was hit by a 2022 Chevrolet truck that was towing a Loadrite trailer with two jet skis. The Chevrolet van continued to the right shoulder, where it left the roadway and overturned in a wooded area. The Chevrolet truck came to a controlled stop, although both jet skis were ejected from the trailer. A westbound 2014 Lexus ES350 rounded the curve in the roadway and swept the eastbound 2009 Lexus SUV sideways, causing it to spin and come to rest in the center of Highway 100.

Chevrolet pickup truck driver Daniel Calvert, 46, of Pasadena, was transported to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, where medical personnel later pronounced him dead. He was then transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, where an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. The other injured drivers were taken to local hospitals/trauma centers for treatment.

Motor vehicles have come an incredibly long way since their appearance after the industrial revolution. From the moment cars began to be mass-produced, gearheads all over the world developed a taste for these machines. Since then, many early models have exploded in value. These cars have even earned their place in some of the most respected museums.


RELATED: How to Determine Whether a Car Will Increase in Value

That said, not all cars have received the same love. Some of the cars that most enthusiasts hate are just a hot mess. While these cars are horrible for various reasons, the end result is the same. They are a laughing stock that only car fans with an emotional connection to these cars would love. Automakers have made many downright disappointing vehicles over the past 100 years.

ten 1949 Crosley Hotshot Roadster

Founded in 1939 by Powel Crosley Jr., Crosley Motors Inc. positioned itself in the market by producing compact cars unlike any other national auto company. When the United States entered the war in 1941, Crosley Motors joined the war effort by producing various types of equipment. After the war ended, Crosley resumed production of passenger vehicles.

The Crosley Hotshot Roadster is one of those obscure convertibles that most people have never heard of. Being one of the first compact sports cars released after World War II, the Hotshot was truly a mess. Powered by an ugly 44 cu in inline-four that put out 26.5 hp, the Hotshot may have excelled in pro racing, but it failed to win the hearts of gearheads like the 1949 Oldsmobile 88 Rocket.

9 1961 Chevrolet Corvair

In 1953, Chevrolet released its iconic Corvette. The Corvette set the tone for a new generation of sporty American cars. Following the economic recession of the late 1950s, Chevrolet decided to add a car that could compete with the Volkswagen Beetle. The Chevrolet Corvair became available to the public in 1960. Hoping to be as successful as the Beetle, the Corvair was ahead of its time in the American market.

RELATED: 8 Reasons Gearheads Should Consider the Chevy Corvair (2 Reasons Why It’s Best to Avoid)

While the Volkswagen Beetle was a worldwide hit, the Chevrolet Corvair was essentially a coffin on wheels. Its rear-engine configuration combined with the transaxle system created a weight imbalance resulting in handling issues. In the book titled Dangerous at any speed, Ralph Nader details why crashes with the first generation Corvair kept happening.

8 1965 Renault Dauphine

Founded in 1899 by the Renault brothers, Société Renault Frères was the second French automobile company that still exists today. Following a fate similar to that of the Dodge brothers, two of the three Renault brothers died prematurely. This tragic event did not seal the deal for Renault. The French automaker went through two world wars and started to show its teeth during the post-war period.

The Renault Dauphine was one of Renault’s first successes in the United States. However, things quickly turned sour when motorists realized that the Dauphine’s design was essentially as bad as the Chevrolet Corvair’s. In addition, the Dauphine had serious rust problems. As is commonly noted among French cars of yesteryear, the Dauphine was as fast as a snail.

seven 1973 Ford Pinto

The Volkswagen Beetle really shook up the national automotive scene. In an effort to counter the affordable and intriguing Beetle, Ford released several vehicles, including the Pinto. Smaller and much cheaper than the Mustang and Torino, the Pinto was the logical answer to compact imports from Europe and Japan.

Kaboom! The Ford Pinto is here. Ford executives botched the Pinto, which doomed its future. Ford management was fully aware of the problems that would arise from not equipping the Pinto with the proper equipment. In the end, the Pinto ended up being a feisty mess on wheels that would explode in a rear-end crash. Needless to say, the Pinto got a bad rap.

6 1974 Stag Triumph

Triumph is best known for its exceptional motorcycles. However, the British company began venturing into four-wheeled vehicles in 1923. From 1923, Triumph produced a myriad of exceptional cars. One being more luxurious than the other, Triumph has had several successes. However, the Stag is a failure of Triumph.

RELATED: 10 Things Only True Gearheads Know About Triumph And Their Cars

The Triumph Stag could have been another home run. With his very British physique, the stag looked the part. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter V8 capable of developing 145 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, the V8 found in the Stag is one of the worst V8s ever made. The V8 design caused so many problems that the Stag ended up being a huge disappointment.

5 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood

Cadillac is well known for being the number one luxury car brand in America. Rivaled primarily by Lincoln at home, Cadillac cars are on par with high-end Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. From the 1950s through the mid-1970s, Cadillac was making one luxury boat after another. However, as the Age of Malaise set in, things quickly deteriorated.

In the 1980s, Cadillac deployed technology commonly used today. Variable displacement is present on a variety of vehicles. However, the technology was not what it is today when Cadillac decided to apply it to some of its vehicles, including the Fleetwood. The computer paired with the L62 V8-6-4 simply couldn’t keep up, leading to a plethora of issues. Cadillac would eventually retire the V8-6-4 before losing more customers.

4 1982 Ferrari Mondial

When it comes to very exclusive, sporty and elegant cars, nothing comes close to Ferraris. Since the company was founded in 1947, the Italian automaker has proven time and time again that it is fully capable of making sports cars that will turn heads on and off the track. That said, Ferrari made a few mistakes along the way.

RELATED: Why the Mondial Is Ferrari’s Worst Model

It’s fair to admit that the Ferrari Mondial isn’t quite as disastrous as some technologically weakened death traps set by other automakers. The problem with the Mondial is that it’s not what car enthusiasts expect from a Ferrari. With a 3.2-liter V8 developing 270 hp and 224 lb-ft of torque, the Mondial is not remembered as a real Ferrari. The knockout blow is that the Mondial was too cheap, which is an insult to Ferrari owners.

3 1982 Pontiac Firebird SE

Defunct automaker Pontiac once made some of America’s best cars. From the Tempest to the GTO, several Pontiac cars have become legends among domestic car enthusiasts. One of Pontiac’s most popular sports cars, the Firebird, has undergone several makeovers over the years. However, things went wrong in the early 80s.

The 1969 Pontiac GTO should be on your must-have list, not the Firebird SE. In 1982, Pontiac achieved the unthinkable by equipping its Firebird SE with a 2.83-liter LC1 V6 that produced a heart-rending 102 horsepower and 142 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers would have been acceptable in the late 1940s, but not in 1982. The only reason anyone should buy a 1982 Firebird SE would be to swap the engine out for something powerful.

2 1998 Fiat Multipla

Fiat is best known for its 500 compact. While the Italian automaker hit the nail on the head with the 500, the company has released a decent number of amazing vehicles. For example, the 1952 Fiat 8V Zagato is a classic sports car worth over a million dollars today. At the end of the 90s, Fiat decided to offer a family vehicle that was sure to turn heads and become a classic.

The Fiat Multipla was an incredibly eccentric and ugly family car. Designed by Roberto Giolito, the Multipla is a hideous six-seater powered by engines no one would ever find exhilarating. The Multipla became the butt of the joke along with the Pontiac Aztek. If the Multipla is today a benchmark in the automotive landscape, it remains a bit of a clown car.

1 2005 Ford Thunderbird

Ford knows success very well. From the Model T to the Mustang, Ford Motors has been a true pioneer in the automotive industry. Following the release of the Corvette, Ford decided to counterattack by launching the mythical Thunderbird. The Thunderbird was so successful that celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe fell in love with it.

When you look at the evolution of the Ford Thunderbird, it’s fair to say that things have gone downhill. The Thunderbird began to lose its appeal in the late 70s. However, things got very ugly when Ford followed the trend at the time. While most domestic automakers gave some of their vehicles a classic twist, Ford brought back the Thunderbird with a classic yet modern look. The experiment was a dismal commercial failure.

DETROIT – Ford Motor has always considered the Mustang a class apart. That may soon prove to be true, with the seventh generation of the famous American pony car.

The Detroit automaker unveiled the redesigned 2024 Mustang hardtop and convertible with dual gasoline engines on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro – the car’s biggest rivals – are expected to go electric in the coming years.

Ford officials say redesigning the iconic car without any kind of electrification is part of its “Mustang family” strategy that includes the all-electric Mustang Mach-E crossover that went on sale in late 2020.

“We know customers want that internal combustion and some of them want electric and we offer both in this Mustang family,” Mustang marketing manager Jim Owens said during a press briefing.

A planned hybrid variant has been scrapped, according to a report by Automotive News, likely making the Mustang the latest gasoline-powered muscle car from Detroit automakers — a narrowing of the segment that seemed far-fetched just a few years ago.

This summer, Dodge announced that its four-door Charger and two-door Challenger muscle cars will roll into the sunset late next year, to be replaced by a new all-electric vehicle. Chevrolet is expected to end production of the gas-powered Chevy Camaro in the coming years as part of General Motors’ plans to offer exclusively electric vehicles by 2035.

That means gearheads who still crave the roar of a V-8 engine in a sporty American coupe will have only one option: the Mustang, which has dominated sales over the Camaro and Challenger with the current car. sixth generation.

Sales of Detroit sports cars and muscle cars have been declining for years. Mainstream two-door sports coupes such as the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro fell 32% between 2015 and 2019 – the last year of sales before automakers were stymied by ongoing problems with the global supply chain, including a shortage of semiconductor chips.

“Some of our competitors talk about not being in the internal combustion engine sports car business, and what we’re so proud of here today is that we’re already expanding that family,” Owens said.

Owens and other Ford officials declined to say whether the seventh-generation Mustang would be the last to feature a traditional internal combustion engine.

The 2024 Mustang, which will be produced at a plant in metropolitan Detroit, will go on sale in the United States next summer. Ford hasn’t announced pricing for the vehicle, but the current generation starts at $27,470.

Mustang 2024

The exterior of the 2024 Mustang should look familiar to fans of the car. It’s an evolutionary change from the sixth-gen edition, but with a bit more muscular features.

“We’re adding a modern twist to the heritage-inspired design,” said Chris Walter, Ford Mustang design manager.

The front and rear of the vehicle are redesigned, but the car’s overall silhouette and dimensions are similar to the current-generation Mustang, which was last redesigned for the 2015 model year.

The four-cylinder and V-8 engines are updated from the current Mustang. Ford hasn’t released performance specs, but they’ll likely be better than today’s vehicles. V-8 GT models will be offered in manual and automatic transmissions.

The current 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, while the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 produces 450 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Top speed ranges from 121 mph to 180 mph, depending on the model.

The most obvious changes to the seventh-generation Mustang are inside the vehicle: most notably, a 13.2-inch center touchscreen and 12.4-inch driver information cluster. Screens can be customized by owners.

Two other new additions include an available “Electronic Drift Brake” for easier drifting and a “Remote Rev” function with the ability for owners to rev the car’s engine remotely using a carrier. keys.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) — Law enforcement may be close to locating a metro Atlanta-area woman who went missing earlier this month.

Yolanda Brown was last seen leaving an Irish pub on Virginia Avenue in Hapeville on September 3. His family told CBS46 last week that their black 2020 Chevrolet Impala was also gone.

On Monday, the Newton County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that deputies found a vehicle similar to Brown’s in a wooded area off Highway 20 west.

Video captured from the CBS46 helicopter shows the times when Newton County deputies, GBI agents and state troopers towed a black car away from the scene.

sergeant. Jack Redlinger of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office said the vehicle in the woods had “similarities to Yolanda’s vehicle,” but would not comment on what investigators found inside the car.

Georgia State Patrol later confirmed to CBS46 Monday night that there was a body inside the vehicle.

In an email from GSP, a public information official said troopers were called to the scene after GBI officers found the deceased driver in the car near I-20. A specialist collision and reconstruction team (SCRT) was called to the scene.

No agency has confirmed who owns the body.

The car and contents found at the scene off I-20 are now heading to the GBI crime lab in Atlanta for processing.

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment on whether there was suspected foul play or persons of interest.

Electric vehicles charge at the Ozarks Electric Cooperative office in Fayetteville. Ozarks Electric is a sponsor of the Drive Electric NWA event on September 24 at Rogers.

Drive Electric NWA at Rogers is expected to raise awareness about electric vehicles and allow attendees to ask questions about issues such as charging infrastructure or range anxiety.

Springdale-based nonprofit Northwest Arkansas Council will host the free, walk-in event from noon to 5 p.m. on September 24 in a parking lot adjacent to JCPenney at Pinnacle Hills Promenade. The event has more than ten sponsors. The rainy date is October 1.

Rob Smith, policy director for the Northwest Arkansas Council, said the idea for the event came about after discussions about how to educate people about electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. He hopes that participants will leave with a better knowledge and greater comfort of electric vehicles.

Sponsors, such as Flux Car Charging Solutions and Francis Energy, can take care of the charging infrastructure.

Smith noted the different levels of magazines. Level 1 chargers are the slowest and most commonly used at home. Level 2 loaders are slightly faster and are often found in store parking lots. He said fast, or Level 3, DC chargers can recharge an electric vehicle in 30 to 45 minutes.

As for distance anxiety, he explained that it needs to be addressed through proper planning. “That’s one of the things we want to answer,” Smith said. “Tell me about distance anxiety. Tell me how I’ll make sure I can get to Dallas. What do I have to do?”

When asked if the grid could handle electric vehicle charging, Kris Williams, director of energy services for Ozarks Electric Cooperative, said the transition to electric vehicles would happen over time. While 80% of U.S. residents are expected to own an electric vehicle by around 2055, that will only translate to a 10% to 15% increase in electricity consumption, Williams said, adding that advances in technology are improving the energy efficiency of appliances, equipment and vehicles.

Additionally, Williams said 70-80% of electric vehicles will charge at home or at work. “In preparation for this, Ozarks Electric has developed a lower energy rate that encourages vehicle charging during off-peak hours,” he said. “Charging during off-peak hours takes advantage of increased energy availability.”

Other event sponsors include car dealerships, such as Lewis Automotive Group and Nunnally Chevrolet. Additionally, Evolve Auto, an electric vehicle dealership in North Little Rock, is expected to be present at the event. Additionally, Moosejaw will enter participants into a raffle to win a Vvolt Alpha e-bike.

Youtube channel goonzquad provides some updates on the previously discontinued 1967 Chevy Camaro project they are undertaking which includes not only getting the car started but also doing an LT4 swap from a new Chevy Camaro ZL1. The new supercharged engine will take the power of this classic muscle car to the next level and add a second chapter of life to this bright blue Chevy.


Watch the video to see details of their progress so far, which pieces have recently arrived, and what’s next.


Chevy Camaro LT4 trade-in

In addition to the Camaro 67, they are also working on other projects simultaneously, including a Ford Mustang and a Porsche. They receive new parts for both vehicles in the mail and discuss them in the video, including a roll cage for the Porsche and a front lip for the Mustang that turns out to be the wrong size.

They also open up a series of other parts throughout the video for the Camaro, all of which will help get the muscle car back on the road and faster than ever.

Headers have come for the Camaro which is an exciting development while other things like a custom roll cage will have to come later. A roll cage is essential for this car because safety in the 1960s was significantly less advanced in cars than it is today. This Camaro left the factory with the intention of carrying much less power than a later LT4 engine.

The combination of these two factors alone demands a stronger roll cage that can handle the speed of the modified car.

New parts coming soon

They are unpacking a fan for the heating and air conditioning systems as well as the other header, all of which will come into the functionality of this project. They also receive a welding kit that can be used for different types of vehicles, including aluminum, which will play a bigger role in vehicle construction in the future.

Before getting to work on the Camaro, they wipe it down thoroughly to remove any dirt or dust and begin to disassemble the front of the car.

They remove the hood and much of the front of the Camaro and go over some of the next steps to complete the project. Fuel lines and fittings are coming as well as custom radiator hoses in the near future. Before long, they expect the car to be ready to go and show off its improvements in looks, power and performance.

Recent video from Drag Racing and Car Stuff shows a Hellcat villain dismantling a supercharged Chevrolet Camaro, El Camino and a C10 pickup truck.

It is well known that the To dodge Challenger Hellcat is a very fast and powerful vehicle. With that in mind, a recent video from the YouTube channel Drag racing and car stuff shows how fast the Challenger Hellcat is against a range of GM vehicles, including a Camaro, El Camino and GMC pickup truck. Although they are fast vehicles themselves, they are no match for the Hellcat that manages to take all the victories in the drag racing series.

Challenger Hellcats on the drag strip

The first is a black Dodge Hellcat Challenger taking on a yellow 6th generation Chevy Camaro. Once the 1/4 mile race begins, the Camaro manages to stay close to the Challenger for much of the run, but never pulls off the feat of passing the speedy Dodge. The Challenger takes the win against the Camaro at the end with a finish time of 10.86 seconds and a top speed of 128.22 mph against the Camaro which finishes in 11.78 seconds with a top speed of 117, 48mph.

Next, the Hellcat Challenger takes on a Chevrolet El Camino. The Hellcat does an early burnout before lining up at the start. Immediately after her move, El Camino takes an early lead but the Challenger catches up and overtakes her in no time. After reclaiming first place, the Challenger won the drag race with a finish time of 10.61 seconds and a top speed of 129.26 mph against the El Camino time of 11.60 seconds and a top speed of 114.17 mph.

Hellcats continue impressive performance

Against a GMC pickup, competitor Dodge Hellcat takes the lead but the truck does a good job of closing the gap between the two. However, that’s not enough to win against the Dodge. The Hellcat wins again, with an arrival time of 11.19 seconds and a top speed of 129.00 mph versus the arrival time of 11.63 seconds and a top speed of 113.12 mph. Although the GMC pickup takes the loss, its performance is still impressive because it comes from a time when pickup trucks weren’t performance-oriented or particularly fast.

The video ends as it began with a Challenger Hellcat taking on the 6th Gen Chevy Camaro. The Hellcat is different from the first but the Camaro seems to be the same. The result, this time, is similar to the two vehicles at the start of the vehicle. Times and top speeds are very close to the Hellcat and Camaro at the start of the race although the Camaro manages to increase its top speed with a finish time of 11.53 seconds and a top speed of 119.61 mph though that’s still not enough to beat the Hellcat’s 10.77-second finish and 129.90 mph top speed.
