We rustle up five SUVs from the most competitive diesel segment in the U.S.
All this talk about diesels remains largely just yammer. Despite years of
automaker promises and auto-show oaths, plus hipster queues at Volkswagen
dealerships for Jetta wagons with stick shifts and 500-mile ranges, the
American diesel market is barely running at a cold idle. In fact, this
gathering of five vehicles is an all-inclusive roundup of every single
entry in the most hotly contested compression-ignition segment in the U.S.:
diesel sport-utilities sized medium-large and priced medium-ridiculous.
Even the working-pickup market can boast only three diesel players at
More oil-burners are surely coming, especially from Europe. There,
diesel-evangelical automakers are desperate to amortize their increasing
development costs by spreading the religion beyond the E.U. With its scant
appetite for diesels, Asia is lost. So the push is in America, which is
why, in this test, you must witness the spectacle of four Germans beating
up on a lone American (albeit one with an Italian engine).
Yes, this is the location where Forrest Gump stopped running. No, we
don’t want to hear your Gump impersonation.
A diesel’s key selling point is its efficiency. In this test we have fuel
tanks sized from 22.5 to 27.7 gallons and EPA-combined fuel-economy ratings
in the low- to mid-20s. Thus, even the BMW X5 xDrive35d, with both the most
convoluted name and the smallest tank, should be capable of easily leaping
from New York to Cleveland without a fill-up. And if you’re very easy on
the Mercedes-Benz ML350 BlueTec, which has the largest tank, you might just
squeak it all the way to Chicago.
None of those bladder-busting drives particularly interested us, so we
saddled up in Los Angeles and drove to Monument Valley, one of the iconic
landscapes by which America defines itself with postcard snapshots.
That’s 642 miles via a long highway route through Arizona. Instead, we
zigzagged across Utah’s Grand-Staircase Escalante, where Mother Nature
went crazy with her construction toys, digging canyons of khaki and pink
stone and cutting stairs in which each riser is a thousand-foot wall. We
drove past Fifty Mile Mountain and the Studhorse Peaks, crossed the
Waterpocket Fold, and took pictures at Bullfrog Bay. At 1150 miles, our
fuel-economy log may be a record for a C/D comparison test. [Actually, the
record is 2000 miles–Ed.]
Then there were the larger, high-flow big-rig nozzles that didn’t
fit—or fit only with the help of an adapter, which was only supplied with
the BMW. We had to pass it around, making some fuel stops seem longer than
Seth MacFarlane’s monologue at the Oscars. That is, when we could find a
station with diesel.
As of this moment, the diesel is something of a BlackBerry in an iPhone
world, so owners should be prepared for a dose of inconvenience with their
extraordinary fuel economy. Is it worth it? Let’s find out.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and
only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a
grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike
Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan
them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi
failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a
fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous
Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle.
The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot
rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer,
Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every
compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out!
Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December
5th with a new video premiering each day!

wanted to know which of these powerful vehicles is the fastest from 0-60
MPH. In another fun and exclusive TFLcar comparison Mashup review we test
the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vs BMW X5 M vs Porsche Cayenne GTS from
0-60 MPH to find out which fast SUV is the king of the hill...at least when
it comes to acceleration.
