The new Toyota Supra is expected to arrive in 2018. The vehicle caught here wears less camouflage than previous prototypes, showing the coupe’s overall contours, massive front air intakes and the shape of the taillamps.

The long hood could be hiding a turbocharged BMW-sourced six-cylinder gas engine, some suggest. However, other reports say that Toyota’s engineers could install the new hybrid turbo engine that’s under development.

Probably the most interesting but dubious possible option comes from a 2014 report. Japan’s Holiday Auto magazine reported that Toyota could use a 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine from BMW, supported by two electric motors in the front and one in the rear for a combined output of 354 hp.

 

This is the upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk (LHD/RHD), caught showing off its HellCat engine.

Spotted completely uncovered, the Trackhawk will crib the styling introduced on the SRT version of the Grand Cherokee. The only visible exterior changes are an exaggerated rear diffuser and 86’ed fog lights. Sources say to expect quad exhaust tips, but not one prototype has been spotted with them.

As seen in these shots, the Trackhawk receives the 707hp supercharged V8 HellCat, making it a competitor for vehicles such as the BMW X5 M.

Expect the Trackhawk to start from at least $75,000 when it goes on sale late this year or early in 2018.
