The F150 Raptor Fighter: 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel

There are two major production offroad pickup trucks in the market at this moment: the Ford F150 Raptor and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. Those two models usually are sold around MSRP (not easy to negotiate), therefore there is higher profit margin and makes sense for a business case.

Apparently this attracts Dodge too. In the Detroit auto show yesterday, Dodge debuted the offroad version of its Ram 1500 pickup truck – the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel. You can see our live photos below, the unveil was somewhat interesting, as the Ram 1500 Rebel “emerged” from the wall.

Officially Announced: 2016 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

The GTS model is something special in the Porsche product line: it usually sits in the middle of a specific model trim range, usually with significantly upgraded power (but still not the most powerful trim), but has a relatively affordable MSRP.


More HP & Torque

Now Porsche has put this treatment on the 911 Targa 4, by introducing the 911 Targa 4 GTS. Compared to the 911 Targa 4, the major upgrade in the GTS model is its engine – instead of the 3.4L in the 911 Targa 4, the GTS is using a 3.8L flat-6 engine, outputting a much higher 424hp and 325lb-ft of torque.
