SsangYong Moves to Build Advanced Engines

SsangYong Motors is remembered mostly for their tie-up with Mercedes-Benz producing products such as the MB100 (Istana) and Musso. Though that arrangement happened to span only three years (1991 to 93), it left an indelible mark on the company that remains with them until today. Moving forward from simple licensing agreements, SsangYong is inching towards a corporate vision of becoming the “most innovative and respected Korean automotive company”.

Review: 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L 3.5 V6

At a glance, it’s hard to position the 2016 Honda Pilot. At P 3,380,000, the sole EX-L variant is around a Brio’s worth of pesos more than its most expensive rival, the Ford Explorer Sport. Yet, the Honda’s spec sheet looks a tad pedestrian compared to the Ford’s Trump Card worthy one: 284 versus 370 horsepower, 353 versus 475 Nm of torque. It’s looking very much like a lopsided win for the Blue Oval until you spend some seat time in the Pilot. This isn’t Ulysses Ang versus Michael Phelps in the swimming pool; this is more like Neil deGrasse Tyson going against 50 Cent in a game of Jeopardy. And in this case, the Pilot’s not playing the role of gangsta-rapper.

In the past, SsangYong has made cars which were as visually challenging to understand as their nameplates: Rexton, Actyon, and Rodius.

Well, SsangYong is putting that past behind them and now all eyes are on the double dragons and this time, it’s for a good reason.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is Pure Electric Excess

This is the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6—an homage to the glorious age of aero coupes that also manages to carry this tradition to the future. At almost six meters in length with a 750 horsepower engine, it’s pure sensorial excess, but at the same time, it’s every bit environmentally conscious with its completely electric drive system that can run up to 500 kilometers between charges.
