( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.
2014 Ford Escape EcoBoost 4WD Colorado Off-Road Review 2.0
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Ford Escape EcoBoost is small all-wheel-drive Crossover that
is called the Ford Kuga in Europe. Last year we tested the Ford Escape up
our traditional off-road trail in the snow and quickly got it stuck and
almost rolled it into a creek. The trail and the conditions were obviously
extreme for a vehicle that most people will only use occasionally on a dirt
road. As soon as the snow started falling in Colorado we decided to try it
again on a more fitting off-road trail. In another accurate,fun and
informative TFLcar Colorado off-road review, we re-test the 2014 Ford
Escape with the EcoBoost engine in
the snow and mud to se how it will drive when the road gets steep and

Top 5 Sporty Cars reviewed, driven and tested
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best sporty car that you can buy
today? We at The fast Lane Car are lucky to drive a different car every
week so we've had the chance to drive many (if not most) of the best sporty
cars on the market. Here are the top 5 sporty cars that we've driven in
2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Base price is just under $27,000. To add all
the special features you're looking at $34,000. You're probably not going
to buy the FJ Cruiser if gas mileage is your top priority. Fuel economy
tops out in the low 20's on the highway but let's face it you're not
looking to drive on the pavement.
2012 Infiniti M56x first drive review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti M56X AWD packs a powerful
punch. With a 420 horsepower V8 engine and a
seven speed automatic transmission this car will rocket from 0 to 60 in
just under 5 seconds. That's fast for a car that can easily haul 5 people
in style and comfort.

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.
