When the GT Heritage Edition was revealed it was speculated there weren’t many performance upgrades. And while that may be true, who doesn’t love to watch good American power on the dyno? Hennessey put a 2018 GT Heritage Edition on their dyno and watched as it put out 581 HP and 513 lb.-ft. of torque at the wheels. Stay tuned as they say there’s more upgrades and (hopefully) power to be added!
Is this the way of the future? Maybe. California-based company, Hoversurf, provided police officers in Dubai with their S3 2019 hoverbike. And the officers have already started incorporating them into training. The hoverbike’s max speed is 60 mph and can hover 16 feet in the air. The officers hope to have them up and in use by 2020.
Under Age Chase
How many 11-year-olds can say they’ve been the center of more than 1 high-speed police chase? Probably only this Ohio boy. He was involved in one last year after he stole his mom’s car out of “boredom”. And as of last week, he was in his second. His mom took away his PlayStation, so he decided to take her Durango out for a spin after she went to bed. Ironically, his dad saw him driving by, but an officer managed to spot the boy as well. The officer went to pull the boy over when the boy took off. He was driving through street traffic at almost 90mph before he crashed into a parked truck. He walked away physically okay but is now facing grand-theft auto and failing to comply charges. You can watch the full video here.
For a while after the Jeep pickup was announced, rumors were going around it would be named the Scrambler. But a Jeep forum has leaked photos and the actual name, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The post says Fiat Chrysler accidentally posted about the Gladiator and they were able to get some details and photos before it was taken down. It’s rumored to house either a 3.6-liter V6 or a 3.0-liter diesel V6. That’s all the details we have for now but stay tuned when it’s released at the LA Auto show for more details.
