    Jeep wasn't very good at hiding this secret. Back in the summer, it revealed the Wrangler 392 Rubicon "Concept", and you could practically feel the whoosh for how big the air-quotes were. Sure enough, four months later, here it is: the 2021 Wrangler 392 Rubicon is heading for production. This...

    Magnuson Superchargers is already a big name in blowers, making supercharger kits for just about anything with a V8, and even a few things with a V6, but their latest is suspiciously close to another big name, but this one in moustaches. The latest in the company's line is a new Magnum PI...

    GM may start putting junkyards out of business with its new GM Service 350 V8. The crate engine V8 is designed as a low-buck replacement for work trucks and vans. Built around a brand new four-bolt block with new cylinder heads and block castings, as well as a forged crankshaft, new valve...

    It shouldn't come as a surprise that Hennessey can make a vehicle with a small block make ridiculous power and go enormously quickly. But there's still something amusing about seeing a pickup move like this. As the name would suggest, the Goliath 700 makes 700 hp thanks to a 2.9-liter...

    Chevrolet is updating the Camaro for 2021 that will include some revised equipment and some new colors. The biggest change will be the addition of the 10-speed automatic transmission to the high-performance SS 1LE package. The 455 hp supercharged V8 was previously only available with a...

    A new report says that Cadillac's supercool twin-turbo Blackwing V8 is, well, doomed. As in it won't go into the company's next high-performance sedans. Or into the Escalade. Or into anything else. And they've already said that no other GM brand is going to get it. But does any of this make any...

    495 hp. That's what Chevrolet says the C8 Corvette can make when it's equipped with the performance exhaust. But is that an accurate figure, or is the C8 hiding some ponies? After all, under three seconds to 60 is purdy dang quick for just 500 hp and two driven tires. Well, if you want a second...

    The sound of an engine is another piece in the rich tapestry of what makes cars so interesting. But why does a V8 sound like syncopated thunder when an inline-four sounds like a freshly opened can of farts? The answer? Because they're different. Now that may sound like a cop-out but it isn't...

    This is the greatest C3 Corvette in the world. A full-on tube-frame IMSA racer with a V8 left over from the outrageous Can-AM series. And you can buy it. Right now. It's one of just two tube-frame cars built for IMSA racing. Driven by notorious racer John Paul Sr of JLP racing. We'll let you...

    Back in November, the automotive world was atwitter with news of a C8-style key fob with Cadillac branding. GM Authority now reports that it was, in fact, just a Corvette key that hadn't had the Caddy branding removed. The reason the key had Cadillac branding in the first place is down to that...

    As we reported at its unveiling at the end of May, Cadillac plans to introduce a series of V cars that's even sportier than the CT5-V and the CT4-V. These will be called Blackwing. A Cadillac Society report  follows a report from Muscle Cars and Trucks report from early June saying that the...

    There's a new supercar from a small name you might remember. Ultima, makers of the tiny gull-wing GTR from 1999 to 2016 have just revealed a new model. And it's powered by Chevrolet's LT engines. Offering up well over 1,000 hp. If you think you can handle it. The Ultima RS looks not far off of...

    Cadillac seemed pretty excited back in January that the CT6-V (or V Sport or whatever) sold out in fewer than two days. But for those unlucky enough to not be one of the 275 people who had successfully preordered their CT6-V, it was kind of a bummer. But don't be bummed! There are more on their...

    Last year, Chevrolet introduced Rally Sport Truck (RST) variant of the Tahoe. Effectively an appearance package for the body-on-frame SUV, it also opened the door for a performance package containing General Motors' Magnetic Ride Control, a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8, and the 10L80 10-speed...

    Depending on trim, there's a stable of new Camaro faces (fascias, to be exact) arriving for 2019, but order guides show that would-be customers stand to save money, too. Especially if they can live without a V6. According to guides seen by CarsDirect, getting behind the wheel of a base 2019...

    A mysterious new Cadillac coupe model has been revealed through patent drawings from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The renderings, first revealed by the GM-obsessed folks over at GM Authority, show a sleek Cadillac two-door model that appears to be heavily inspired by...

    There's a natural inclination among observers of the automotive industry to assume that newer technologies are better. And while new technologies often offer advantages over the old ones, sometimes the old stuff works just fine. Enter the pushrod V8. Yes, at Chevy this technology dates back to...

    No, there's no Denali Light model in the works, but there will be a new choice for buyers seeking a low-end GMC Yukon or Yukon XL. General Motors' truck-only division apparently has a mid-year addition planned for the body-on-frame SUV that effectively creates a one-up-from-base trim. To...

    Working with a 3D printed V8, Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained gives you a very thorough breakdown of exactly what happens when a Chevy V8 fires up. Starting with the individual piston's operation, building to the firing order, and then to the cam and crank shafts from there, Fenske...
