After a long promotional campaign, Rampage finally debuted in Brazil. The small truck rides on the Small Wide 4×4 platform that also underpins vehicles such as the Alfa Romeo Tonale, Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade. The two engine options are a 2.0-liter Multijet diesel four-cylinder that makes 170 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, or a gas-powered 2.0-liter Hurricane four-cylinder that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft.
There are rumors that this truck could be coming to the US, so we think it’s worth discussing a truck launched in Brazil first.
The 2024 Mercedes E-Class Estate also debuted this week. It is like the sedan but with a longer roof for more cargo space. While this model isn’t coming to the US, a filing with the EPA suggests that the higher-riding range is on its way to the US.
The facelifted Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has a new nose with updated headlights. Inside is the latest Pivi Pro 2 infotainment system. In the US, prices start at $49,900.
Finally, Toyota introduced the fourth generation Alphard and Vellfire minivans in Japan. They have bold styling that is much more futuristic than the US Sienna. Both can seat up to six people. Buyers can get a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 275 hp, a hybrid that makes 250 hp, or a 2.5-liter mill that makes 180 hp.
