Ram Dakota rumors, Chevy Corvette production, Land Rover Defender V-8: Car News Headlines
Ram is thought to be preparing a new mid-size pickup truck for the United States and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been caught renewing a trademark for the Dakota name. Many automakers are now offering mid-size pickups, so it makes sense that Ram would want to join the fray.
Production of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray only just commenced when the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic hit. Only about 2,700 were built before production came to a stop. Depending on when production resumes, we could be looking at very low numbers for the 2020 model year.
Land Rover has been spotted testing prototypes for a V-8 version of its modern Defender. The new off-roader has been announced with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 rated at 296 horsepower and a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 mild-hybrid setup rated at 395 hp, and the addition of a V-8 option should see the output rise to over 500 hp.
