By info@topspeed.com (Kirby Garlitos)
Dodge Vipers are famous for being fast; the most recent iteration of the American sports car featured an 8.4-liter V-10 engine that produced 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and it was able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 208 mph.

Heres what a Camaro EV crossover might look like Ford rustled more than a few feathers when it revealed the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E late last year, but it wasnt because anyone had beef with the idea of a sporty, all-electric SUV.

Mid-air, the vehicle strikes the bendy top half of aconiferous tree at the end of... [read more]

Subaru Legacy - Driven

By info@topspeed.com (Brady Holt)

A crossover before the term crossover existed before even car-based SUVs had really emerged on the scene the Outback was a Legacy with some butcher detailing and, soon after its launch, a higher ground clearance.
