The fresh 2021 Toyota 4Runner offers a more off-road capability than most body-on frame SUVs, but for a daily driver, it may lack the level of individual refinement. Some of the highlights for 2021 include an ample cargo capacity, an outstanding off-road capability, an optional third-row seat, and a strong V6 engine. Its release date should be expected the first quarter of 2016.
For 2016, the 4Runner gains a slight towing capacity increment, a cell phone navigation integration, and an upgraded base audio system. Raucous and off-road ready, truck based crossovers were once the most sought after SUVs in the segment. However, buyers later realized that the same vehicles offer lousy fuel economy ratings, rough rides, and inefficient for daily commuting chores.
That said, car-based light utility vehicles soon started to debut and with them came with serious off-roading capability while still offering comfort and luxury amenities suitable for everyday commuting. The revitalized 2021 Toyota 4Runner is among them, and with the brand’s reputation for reliability and efficiency, the new vehicle promises nothing less than ride comfort and top-notch performance.
Even the base comes with serious off-road action and lots of standard equipment. Some of the standard equipment include hill-start assist, mud guards, hill-descent control, dual-range transfer case, advanced electronic aides, and skid plates. Still, there are some things worth lamenting over. They include a busy ride, cumbersome setup process for the Entune system, low towing capacity for a traditional SUV, and a poor fuel economy rating.
If you are looking for more towing capacity, and a premium cabin with a standard three-row seating configuration, you can opt for the 2021 Dodge Durango or the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which ranks atop our favorite list and offers several engine options, competitive off-road performance, an upscale interior, and better fuel economy ratings. Better yet, you could opt for the top-rated 2021 Toyota Highlander, which offers superior acceleration and efficiency, and a passenger space for up to eight people.

New 2021 Cadillac CT6 – Release Date and Info
The new 2021 Cadillac CT6 is a compelling value among leading luxury sedans with its generous passenger space, competitive price, efficient and responsive engine, and an engaging driving experience. It also has a commanding presence and a serious curbside presence. Its release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2021, at least according to recent pundit’s reports.
For starters, the Cadillac CT6 is a large luxury sedan with classic rear-wheel-drive proportions, and a has enjoyed a renaissance for over ten years or so, flaunting genuine high-performance credentials and a sharp new design language not seen before. But one thing makes the Cadillac CT6 a standout – it’s an unmistaken flagship vehicle.
Rumors have been circulating in the segment for a while now that Cadillac is building an even high-end sedan that is slated to one of the world’s best. Apparently, Cadillac hasn’t refuted or substantiated the claims yet, but as things stand – there “must” be something cooking on the other side of the veil. And as they say, “Only time will tell.”
The level of polish and interior refinement in the new CT6 are desirable, as is the ride and construction quality. Cadillac has made concerted efforts in ensuring that the CT6 is compelling and appealing through major interior redesigns and changes. Interior technologies and advanced safety features have also be roped in.
It’s practical, too. The backseat, for instance, offers plenty of space in comparison to other well dimensionally large luxury sedans in the market. Surprisingly though, the new model has added any weight, and sources say it weighs about 1,000 lbs. less than its competition thanks to the ample dose of lightweight aluminum and clever engineering during its construction.
With such a diet, the newest Cadillac CT6 is more than capable of getting the job done in terms of a better fuel economy particularly for the base model, and improved handling and steering precision.
Limousine accoutrements available and the smorgasbord of technology features are provided in abundance and you’ll be hard-pressed which one to choose especially those offered as options. Several alternatives however do exist. Some of these include the 2021 Audi A6, the 2021 Audi A8, 2021 Jaguar XJ, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the 2021 BMW 7 Series. In overall, though, we encourage you to investigate Caddy’s interim flagship model if you’re looking for a luxury sedan that offers a reasonable price, and distinctive personality and style.

2021 Jeep Renegade Release Date, Specs and Info
The new 2021 Jeep Renegade is certainly one of the few models from Jeep that has actually embraced a styling and playfulness evolution. It’s practical and rewarding to drive. Some of its attributed include easy-to-use technology interface, lots of character, and best-in-class off-road capability. Its release date should be expected during the 3rd Q of 2021.
The 2021 Renegade will for the first time come equipped with a nifty removable cargo light on both the Trailhawk and Limited trims, new automatic wipers, and a new premium audio option.
When the vehicle debuted two years ago, some Jeep critics and enthusiasts were quick to air their concerns on whether the badge of a manufacturer built on a reputation of unquestionable off-road capability could be worn by a subcompact crossover. The skepticism was further fuelled by the fact that Jeep has a reputation of building underwhelming small crossovers like the Patriot and Compass.
But with a long-term Renegade Trailhawk in our fleet and several road tests under our belts, we can therefore conclude that those fears are unfounded. The Jeep Renegade for 2021 is an excellent subcompact crossover that comes with an off-road athleticism, an easy and fun to drive character, and a fairly comfortable cabin.
However, the Renegade disappoints on several fronts including but not limited to a middling fuel economy rating, intrusive wind noise, clunky and confused automatic transmission system, limited cargo capacity, and tight rear-seat legroom. Well, if you can’t live with this shortcomings, there are several other options worth considering. They include the 2021 Honda HR-V, the 2021 Fiat 500X, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek, and the 2021 Mazda CX-3.
Available Trims – Jeep Renegade
The subcompact 2021 Jeep Renegade crossover SUV is available in four trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trims.

Electronic add-ons include a six-speaker audio system, voice commands, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, a rearview camera, a 5” touchscreen, an additional USB port, and Uconnect interface.
The Limited comes standard with an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, a 115-V household style power outlet, automatic climate control (dual-zone), automatic wipers, 18” wheels, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped shift knob, leather upholstery, an upgraded driver information display, heated steering wheel, automatic wipers, dual-exhaust tips, and heated front seats.

Selective on both the Latitude and Sport trims, and standard for the Limited and Trailhawk trims is a four-cylinder 2.4L engine rated at 180 horsepower and 175 pounds of torque. The nine-speed automatic transmission system is the default system. You have the choice of either the four-wheel-drive or the front-wheel drive version except for the Trailhawk trim that is offered as a four-wheel drive only.
During our test drives, the Trailhawk posted a lackluster acceleration of 9.9 seconds for a sprint of 0-60 mph, and 9.4 seconds for the all-wheel-drive 2.4L engine-fitted versions.
With the Trailer To w package, expect the four-wheel-drive 2021 Jeep Renegade to achieve a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.
Price & Release Date – 2021 Jeep Renegade
The new Jeep Renegade for 2021 should be expected in U.S dealerships during the 3rd Q of this year latest. As for the price, the MSRP has been set at $17,995.
2021 Pagani Huayra BC Release Date, Specs & Info
The new 2021 Pagani Huayra BC is a testament to Pagani’s innovation and technical solutions for future models. Every part of the vehicle is as a result of innovative changes that makes it achieve a completely different personality to that of the Huayra Coupe. According to Pagani, the 2021 Pagani Huayra BC design has been inspired by its “track focused” predecessors – the Zonda Cinque and the Pagani Zonda R, as it was initially conceived to be a daily driving car that gives maximum performance and exhilaration during special days and track days. Its release date has been set for early 2021. Read on to read what to expect.
First things first, what does “BC” actually mean? Apparently, “BC” represents the initials Benny Caiola – the first person to buy a Pagani Automobile. He was so impressed by the cars Horacio Pagani was making over the years. Pagani Automobile has grown over the years to curve its own niche by introducing a combination of electric motor and combustion engine, and introducing hybrid propulsion.
Furthermore, Pagani Automobiles takes pride in its areas of technological areas of development that involve creating the lightest, globally homologated, Hypercar; developing a completely new Automated Manual Transmission by paying attention to both comfort and performance without compromising the balance and weight of the car; and developing suspension and chassis systems derived from motorspot to deliver a secure and dynamic car while retaining the comfort of a typical Pagani car.
Motivation comes from a 6.0L V12 engine rated at 750 horsepower and 738 pounds-ft. of torque. Rumors also allege that the V12 mill can get up to 789 horsepower and 811 pounds feet of torque. While 0-60 mph figure is still a mystery, as of this writing, it is expected that it’ll achieve the speed in just 2.7 seconds given the standard Huayra can hit 60 mph in just three seconds.
The only competition that seems to raffle the feathers of the 2021 Pagani Huayra BC the bad way is the recently redesigned 2021 Bugatti Chiron. Power for the Chiron comes from a quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 engine that makes a whopping 1,500 horsepower. With all this power generated beneath the hood, the Chiron 0-60 mph takes around 2.5 seconds, and goes on to achieve a top speed of 286 mph. And yet, the Bugatti costs far less than the 2021 Pagani Huayra BC.
2021 Pagani Huayra BC Release Date & Price
According to Pagani, the new Huayra BC will cost around $3M, given the engine and aerodynamic enhancements it gets over the stock Huayra that costs $1M less. Only 20 units of these vehicles will be built and will only be sold to existing owners. Its release date, as already mentioned, should be expected sometime in early 2021.
2021 Pagani Huayra BC Exterior Pictures
Inspired by the track-focused Zonda Cinque and the Zonda R, the new Huayra BC comes with exterior aerodynamic cues similar to those of its predecessors. It comes with a revised rear diffuser and a massive wing that stretches from one end of the bumper to the other. Up front, the fascia has been redesigned, with the diffuser being new. Further aback, Pagani was able to achieve improved down force thanks to the pair of spoilers beneath. The wheels, and side skirts, too, are new.
Aerodynamics cues have been redesigned. Up front, the air inlets are larger, and the race-spec canards and splitter assertive. There’s extensive use of carbon fiber especially on the engine lid, roof, and front hood. Racing stripes are colored blue and white, but certain reports say additional color choices will also be offered.
2021 Pagani Huayra BC Interior
According to Pagani, the new Huayra BC was built with a racing emphasis and weight savings in mind. And even so, the brand has also achieved quite some significant firsts when it comes to the exterior aesthetics. While many details are still under wraps, Pagani has confirmed several details such as – Black Anthracite cabin color, and a suede and leather steering wheel.
And just like any Huayra out there, there’re acres of aluminum, carbon fiber, and fine Alcantara inserts.
The new 2021 Pagani Huayra BC is only available in one well-equipped trim level.
As aforementioned, the new 2021 Pagani Huayra BC will come with a 750-horsepower – generating 6.0L V-12 engine. Other reports say it can crank out 39 horsepower more, thereby outing its total output to around 789 horsepower – 60 more horsepower than the standard Huayra.
With a 0-60 mph acceleration taking around 2.7 seconds, it is only natural for the automaker to offer it with a smorgasbord of safety and driver-assisting technologies. Though unconfirmed, the new Pagani Huayra BC will come with the same technologies that the standard model comes with. Government crash impact assessment results will be offered on its release date.
