Three, two, one - go! The ŠKODA AFRIQ could start immediately on a special stage of the legendary Dakar Rally. The eighth ŠKODA student car is a spectacular rally version of the ŠKODA KAMIQ. The crossover model is thus serving as the basis for a trainee car for the first time. The experts from ŠKODA Motorsport were more involved in the development of the ŠKODA AFRIQ than with any other student car. The project of the 25 trainees, including three women, pays homage to the roots and the original home of the 'Dakar' and at the same time refers to ŠKODA AUTO's responsibility for the Volkswagen Group's activities in North Africa.

For enthusiasts who crave soul-stirring, legendary off-road performance and a new level of on-road performance, Jeep® introduced today the V-8-powered 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 for customers in the North American market.

Plus, this potent combination comes with a factory-backed warranty. Away from the pavement, the Trail Rated® Wrangler Rubicon 392’s potent powertrain meshes with heavy-duty wide track Dana 44 axles, a 3.73 final drive ratio, transmission torque converter lockup control, a 2-inch (5 cm) lift and standard 33-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. The result is the most-capable Jeep Wrangler ever with 10.3 inches of ground clearance, improved suspension articulation and maneuverability, approach/breakover/departure angles of 44.5/22.6/37.5 degrees and the ability to traverse up to 32.5 inches (82.5 cm) of water.
