2012 Ford F150 SVT Raptor Tour

Watch in 1080p What a ride! Among the changes are some brighter paint colors and a more obnoxious — some might call it stylish — graphics package and a few interior accents. But the biggest changes come in the form of a front Torsen differential and grille-mounted camera (with a tiny spray nozzle to wash away mud or dust). For the most part, the 2012 model still comes in just one flavor, sporting the growly 6.2-liter V-8 with single overhead cam, two valves per cylinder and aluminum heads. It's still rated at 411 horsepower and 434 pounds-feet of torque. The Raptor's cab configurations continue to come in SuperCab (133-inch wheelbase) and SuperCrew (145-inch wheelbase). The two models we drove in Texas were SuperCrews — one Rowdy Red, the other Bolt Blue. The front Torsen diff is by far the most significant change to the 2012 model, as it implies Ford is expanding the Raptor's performance parameters to include slow-go 4x4 prowess. On the ranch loop course, we did several slow-speed rock-hopping sections, some higher-speed open-field running, and we went on a loose rock portion as it skirted the banks of a large stream. The most striking characteristic of the extra front traction is how invisible it is. You'll feel a slight tug when the cams ramp up on each other inside the diff, for the most part, giving the wheel with traction a bit more grip. The trail we were driving on wasn't an ideal proving ground, but the feel of Torsen on our trail was more like locker in tractive pull, but it never did feel the slightest bit heavy during cornering, like lockers do. We didn't have the benefit of airing down any tires, but we still made short work of a loosely potholed 70-foot hill climb that had been damaged by tire-spinning SUVs and full-size heavy-duty pickup trucks. (It probably would surprise no one to discover that most auto writers are horrible off-pavement drivers.) The extra traction was noticeable up the steep grade, but what surprised the crud out of us (with plenty of hill-climbing experience in a new fully lockered Ram Power Wagon) was when we had to make a sharp left at the top of the climb, just before a wall of rock that we couldn't see out the windshield but did see in the console navigation screen. The hard left was easy and progressive, without any harsh steering-wheel feedback, just like you'd expect on a flat, paved road. The other interesting feature on the 2012 model is Ford's decision to include a grille-mounted front camera. That alone is cool, but the way Ford integrated the view into the steering-wheel toggles and information center display seems to make sure no one will accidently flip on the camera on the center console screen. In fact, the camera will go on only when in low range and you must be moving slower than 15 mph. If you go faster, the camera defaults to the previously chosen screen — nav, stereo, Sync, whatever you like — and then comes right back to the front view when you slow down for the next obstacle. The same depth and alignment lines that appear when you use the backup camera also appear on the front camera: Blue lines tell you how your vehicle will move forward, and yellow/orange lines tell you the distance and direction the vehicle is pointed. The system may sound complicated, but it gives drivers the very real ability of knowing exactly what is under each corner of the massive hood, something that had always been a mystery for Raptor drivers without a spotter. In effect, the camera negates the need for a spotter because you can see the approaching obstacles and see exactly where to place a tire to keep your sheet metal out of harm's way. It's a simple piece of technology, but it will definitely help you do less body damage to your truck. (Of course, the obvious question is how many Raptor owners are really doing that type of trail exploration.) A high-pressure washer nozzle cleans the camera lens, but neither of the larger headlamps has a wiper or washer nozzle. (Technology, some might argue, is more important for the safety of the driver.) How well the camera and sprayer survive harsh winters, rock chips and swarms of springtime insects remains to be seen, but for now, the view from the Raptor driver's seat — and the truck, all around — is just about the best it has ever been. What does that mean to any challengers that might want to follow suit? Only time will tell. In the meantime, the Ram Runner, Power Wagon, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (aren't they all from the same company?) and Toyota Tacoma TRD Baja Series haven't responded with their own surround-view camera setups, but we'll see. From where we sit, the Raptor looks to be the leader of this high- and low-speed 4x4 parade. I think I smell another comparison test. Any suggestions on where and what trails we should be thinking about? Let us know. Information retrieved from: Pickuptrucks.com

2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum Tour
Watch in 1080p! If I were to own any SUV, this would be it! Come in and check out this awesome truck! The Cadillac Escalade ESV is a longer version of the Escalade. The ESV is a large, luxurious SUV that delivers performance and style. Classy and powerful, it looks great for a night on the town or can haul everything needed for a weekend getaway. The ESV features a long wheelbase and an increase in total length, greatly enhancing third-row seat legroom and rear cargo space. Available as a 4x2 or 4x4 the Escalade ESV is powered by a 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 with Active Fuel Management and E85 compatibility, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Getting into the third row is easier with the ESV; its longer rear door provides a larger opening. Standard equipment includes a power liftgate, stability control, remote start, Bluetooth compatibility, a rear-view camera and side curtain airbags. Some options are Magnetic Ride Control and 22-inch chrome wheels. The Platinum Edition takes style and innovation to a whole new level with standard equipment such as LED headlights, power running boards, and a rear seat entertainment system with two monitors.





2012 Dodge Charger SRT-8 Tour
Watch in 1080p This menacing new sedan marks the triumphant return of the SRT namesake to the Charger model, and does so with a big 6.4-liter bang. The new mill adds 0.3-liters to the top SRT offering, and along with that comes an estimated 465 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque - that's an 80 horsepower bump at 2,900 rpm compared to the outgoing range-topper. Dodge has also added some new tech to the 392, including an all-new active valve Exhaust system that provides for improved efficiency, as well as Fuel Saver technology that drops the engine down to four cylinders for improved fuel economy when cruising. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing also provide improved low-end torque. But that's not all Of course the big engine is the big news for the new Charger SRT8, but Dodge has also added other exciting tidbits and firsts, such as standard paddle-shift technology for those who opt for the AutoStick five-speed automatic transmission. Also new for the latest SRT Charger is an adaptive damping suspension that measures a myriad of inputs such as vehicle speed, steering angle, steering speed, brake torque, throttle position and lateral acceleration to automatically tune and adjust the suspension for optimal handling on the fly. For added control, drivers can also pre-select from either "Auto" or "Sport" modes, which quickly adjust the vehicle to pre-set conditions based on driver demands. The performance SRT-tuned, fully hydraulic steering system is also improved with a new, heavy-duty pump and revised gearing to give drivers more direct feel and on-center response. New, split five-spoke, 20-inch lightweight forged and polished aluminum wheels with black painted pockets provide help get the power to ground while giving the SRT8 a menacing style, along with available three- or four-season tires. Stop it! Of course with all that power the Charger SRT8 is capable of some serious performance figures, such as: zero-to-60 in under five seconds, quarter miles in under 13 seconds, .88g skidpad performance and a top speed of 175 miles per hour. Naturally, something capable of that much speed needs substantial stopping power to keep from leaving the road, so Dodge's SRT division equipped this sedan with four-piston Brembo calipers and vented and slotted rotors measuring 14.2-inches up front and 13.8-inches in the rear. Step inside this hot saloon Inside the SRT8 the sporty style continues with a race-inspired interior featuring a leather-wrapped, SRT-exclusive steering wheel with a flat bottom design and SRT logo. The standard paddle shifters flank both sides of the new steering wheel behind the new contoured palm rests. Continuing the high-performance look and feel are carbon-weave, fiber aluminum interior trim pieces that are integrated into the new instrument panel and shifter bezel. The front seats have aggressive bolstering and perforated suede insert fabric to help keep the driver and passengers planted firmly in their (standard) heated and ventilated seats during spirited driving. Said standard seats also feature reactive headrests and an SRT logo that is embroidered into the seat backs. Rear seats are also heated. The door trim panels have been modified from the standard Charger and feature unique bolster material and accent stitching on arm rests to match the seats. Also new is a 900-watt, 19-speaker premium SRT performance audio surround-sound system from Harmon Kardon. Controlling this high-power stereo is the state-of-the-art Uconnect Touch system with the largest standard touchscreen display in the segment at 8.4-inches. SRT8 and Uconnect exclusives Exclusive Performance Pages are new for this Charger, and included within the touchscreen display. The instrument panel display can be customized to view driver preferences and expanded to include instant feedback on steering input measurements, horsepower, torque, expanded engine information, along with zero-to-60 times, 60-to-zero braking, g-forces and one-eighth mile and quarter-mile times. The color graphic Electronic Vehicle Information Center also includes the Performance Pages timers and added engine information. Don't forget the safety With so much power and performance on hand, sooner or later someone is bound to take things a little too far, and for such occasions dodge has equipped the latest SRT Charger with a slew of safety features. Included in that list are standard front-row reactive head restraints, standard full-length side-curtain air bags, driver's knee airbag and standard front seat-mounted side-thorax air bags. Also included are adaptive-cruise control with Forward Collision Warning and Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection. the Charger also features three-mode electronic stability control with segment-exclusive Ready Alert Braking and Rain Brake Support safety features.
