Ford’s Bronco Raptor finally arrived this week, and it’s even wilder than we had imagined. The high-performance off-roader combines a 400-plus-hp twin-turbo V-6 with the suspension of the bigger F-150 Raptor, enabling it to handle speeds of over 100 mph on essentially any terrain.
2023 Toyota Sequoia
A redesigned Toyota Sequoia sharing a platform with the latest Tundra also arrived this week. There’s just one powertrain at the moment. It’s a hybrid setup combining a twin-turbo V-6 and electric motor for a maximum 437 hp and 583 lb-ft.

2022 Maserati MC20
One of the cars we drove this week was the Maserati MC20. The Italian brand’s first supercar since 2005 boasts a performance envelope greater than most drivers’ talents, but the feedback it provides instills confidence.
2021 Ford F-150 Tremor
Another model we tested was the latest Ford F-150 Tremor. With larger all-terrain tires, upgraded suspension bits, and some styling tweaks, the Tremor proved itself during a winter snowstorm, showing it’s the Goldilocks of the pickup truck’s lineup.
