New 2013 Lexus GS with F Sport Package to Bow at SEMA Show 27

R&T Overview:

Ever since hot rodding began in the 1940s, enthusiasts have been in love with the idea of a small car with a big engine. Why keep up with the Joneses when you can blow their doors off? Case in point: The Lexus IS F. In a space normally occupied by no more than a 3.5-liter V-6, Lexus engineers crammed a 5.0-liter V-8 pumping out 416 bhp and mated it to an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters and a manual mode. Essentially carryover for 2013, the IS F comes standard with 19-in. forged alloy BBS wheels, 10-way power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 13-speaker audio system. In addition to obvious exterior cues, the IS F gets a special interior treatment with two-tone leather/Alcantara seats and aluminized trim.

2012 Ford Taurus Interior / Onsurga

R&T Overview:

An abbreviated model year of virtual carryover 2012 Taurus will end with the arrival of a freshened, re-powered 2013 model in the spring. Underhood, front-drive versions of the 2013 will offer a turbocharged EcoBoost 2.0-liter I-4 as an alternative to the 3.5-liter V-6 that is updated with twin independent variable-cam timing (Ti-VCT) for notably improved power and fuel efficiency. Although it will look substantially unchanged at a glance, the 2013 Taurus lineup- including the potent twin-turbo awd SHO-will also bring numerous exterior and interior revisions, improved steering and brake feel, electronic torque-vectoring control, and additions-like a heated steering wheel-to its already huge slate of convenience and safety technology.

2009 Lincoln Navigator - Overview - CarGurus

R&T Overview:

Big and comfy are Navigator bywords. Typically scaling three tons across its truck-based ladder frame, the Navigator is for big groups on big jobs. Think yachts to the sea and horses to dressage. It’s also loaded with all of Lincoln’s luxury, from olive and walnut swirl wood trim, leather and anechoic chamber levels of sound deadening to power extending running boards and V-8 torque. Towing is a natural and electronic gadgetry a given. Navigators are available in the standard 119-in. wheelbase, or the extended 123-in. L model for extra cargo and family room. As a mature design, the Nav get only small detail improvements such as spotter exterior mirrors and AppLink connectivity for smartphones for 2012.

R&T Overview:

Nissan builds the Titan on its tough F-Alpha pickup platform and it comes in a variety of forms for many functions. The King Cab is the standard version; the Crew Cab has four doors for the, well, crew. This comes atop two wheelbase choices—139.8 in. and 159.5 in.—with three possible bed lengths. There is 2- or 4-wheel drive with a standard limited-slip differential. Power is by way of a 5.6-liter quad-cam V-8 that sends its 317 bhp and 385 lb.-ft. of torque through a 5-speed automatic with tow/haul modes. Equipped right, the King Cab can tow up to 9500 lb., the Crew Cab rated at 9400 lb. This is in three models—S, SV and SL—for normal work, and PRO-4X (4x4 only) for fun off-road. Option list items: adjustable tie-down cleats, a storage compartment and spray-on bedliner.

2010 Land Rover LR4: First Drive

R&T Overview:

At first glance, the LR4 appears to be a misfit—in size it fits between the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, yet it weighs the same as the upscale Range Rover while seating more and costing much less. Land Rover positions the LR4 as a slightly more utilitarian version aimed at those who want the true off-road capabilities without needing the ultimate luxury afforded by Range Rover models. The other key differentiator of the LR4 is the ability to seat an additional two passengers in an albeit cramped third row of seats. Since the LR4 received a major refreshening last year, there are just a handful of minor changes for 2012. These include upgraded infotainment components and navigation system. New wheels and new paint colors are the only exterior changes.
