We drove the 2024 Mercedes-Benz AMG EQE SUV and it made us ponder where AMG fits in the electric future. Without the fire and fury of a gas-powered powertrain, the AMG badge felt out of place on the jellybean-like electric crossover SUV. While the AMG EQE SUV is nice, the historic brand’s going too have to do better than this in the electric car era for those three letters to retain their luster.
Ken Block’s 2009 Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX came up for sale. Listed for $195,000, the heavily modified first-gen Raptor became an instant icon when the motorsports legend debuted it rolling on a set of Mattracks. Block used the modified pickup both as a marketing piece and ski rig.
Scout is coming back, and the reborn automaker under the Volkswagen Group is preparing for its return to market. A laundry list of historic names and trims have been retrademarked including but not limited to Harvester, Scout 800, and Scout II. Which of these nameplates will actually return vs. just being protected remains to be seen.
