Ford: Ranger Raptor 10-speed auto "very capable"

In an attempt to meet the ambitious performance targets it set for the Ranger Raptor, Ford engineers turned to the 10-speed automatic from the full-size F-150 Raptor. The transmission, according to John Fallu, transmission and driveline engineering manager for Ford Asia Pacific, was chosen because it meets "both our refinement and performance benchmarks" for the Raptor.

2019 BMW X2 M35i spied

A hotter BMW X2 has been snapped testing in the snow, wearing bigger brakes and a more aggressive front end. The most powerful global X2 is currently the xDrive28i, with power coming from a 170kW four-cylinder engine. In Australia, the range will be limited to sDrive 18i, sDrive 20i and xDrive 20d, meaning the most powerful local offering makes 140kW.

Chief engineer: Ranger Raptor four-cylinder is the right choice

Ford has finally taken the wraps off its latest halo model, the first Ranger Raptor, at a packed-out event in Bangkok. The US-based automotive giant is billing the Raptor as an off-road performance pick-up, with a beefed-up chassis and 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel mated to an all-new 10-speed auto transmission.

McLaren Senna will hit 340km/h, creates 800kg of downforce

McLaren has revealed more information about the Senna, ahead of the car's full public reveal in Geneva. Although we learned all about the 588kW/800Nm twin-turbo V8 engine when the car was announced in December, there were plenty of questions remaining. How much downforce does the car make? How fast will it go? The latest release from McLaren goes a long way to answering those questions. Let's start with aerodynamics. Running at 250km/h, the car produces a whopping 800kg of downforce.
