The Ultimate Off-Road Battle In The Rocky Mountains

We’re closing out the week by pivoting from the drag strip to the mountains. Thanks to the good people of TFLoffroad and ON X OFFROAD. They recently put the Ram TRX, Ford Bronco, and Can-Am Maverick to the ultimate off-road test through the Argentine Pass of the Rocky Mountains. We also love the friendly competition of the drivers and banter that comes along with who’s driving the coolest off-road vehicle. Check out the video below and watch these guys take their rides 13,000 ft. above sea level to battle it out for whose car handles the terrain the best. Enjoy.

2022 Chevrolet Corvette Hybrid Electric-Variant

We know that Chevrolet has been busy recently, to say the least. Between the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 almost being available and the Z06 debut right around the corner, it’s hard to imagine that the automaker has been working on something else. Behold, the plug-in hybrid version of the C8 Corvette called the E-Ray. And this just might be our first look at it in action.

CarSpyMedia caught a camouflaged prototype cruising alongside a Z06 on the outskirts of the Nurburgring, and while we can’t say with 100% certainty that it’s the car, there are some visual cues giving it away. The prototype combines design elements from the Corvette Z06 and a rear bumper from the Stingray. The biggest giveaway? The lack of engine noise. Check it out right here.

And the best part? Killer looks:

Corvette ZR1 Review

The Chevy Corvette ZR1 is said to be the last of the front-engine Corvettes. Before making the switch to mid-engine for the C8, Chevy decided to throw everything at their last C7. With a top speed of 212 mph thanks to the 6.2-L supercharged V8, this ride absolutely flies. Check out the review, thanks to Throttle House on YouTube, and see what they think. Enjoy.
