2019 Ram 1500 North Edition Arrives to Beat Winter

Motortrend News Feed - 2 hours 30 min ago

Ram is introducing a special edition truck aimed at cold climate dwellers. The 2019 Ram 1500 North Edition bundles together equipment that makes it easier to drive in the snow and will keep customers warm for the rest of the winter.

First off, the truck receives a 1-inch factory lift, engine block heater, and a 4×4 transfer case. Crucially, the truck also comes with three-peak mountain snowflake on/off-road Falken LT tires rated for severe snow service. The truck’s electronic locking rear differential should also help maintain traction in the snow.

Inside, you’ll find heated seats and a heated steering wheel, as well as Mopar all-weather floor mats. A monochromatic appearance package is standard with body-color bumpers, door handles, mirrors, and grille. Other goodies include front and rear parking sensors, 12-way power driver seat with four-way power lumbar, heated and folding mirrors, a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen with SiriusXM Travel Link Weather, and remote start.

The North Edition is based off the Big Horn model, which is one step up from the base Tradesman. It comes in Crew Cab 4×4 configuration, paired with either a short bed or long bed. Available engines include the eTorque 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.

The Ram 1500 North Edition is now on sale starting at $47,585.

Game Informer News Feed - 3 hours 51 min ago

Bandai Namco has revealed the newest character for Jump Force, the Shonen Jump-based arena fighter bringing in characters from the magazine's long history. This time, both Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio from the 1994 manga Ruroni Kenshin are joining in for the crossover fighting game.

In Rurouni Kenshin, protagonist Kenshin was a former soldier/assassin renown for his swordsmanship, but was used by the military primarily to kill. As a consequence, a more adult Kenshin created a special blade with a blunt side facing forward so that he could defeat opponents without murdering them. Shishio is the primary villain from the manga's Kyoto arc, covered head-to-toe in bandages after being burned by the government.

While there is no video yet, presumably both characters will play with sword styles hewing close to their anime adaptations.

The manga Rurouni Kenshin is actually still running in a different form, as creator Nobuhiro Watsuki approached Shonen Jump in the mid-2000s with the intention to remake Kenshin with a modern sensibility. In 2017, Watsuki was arrested for possession of child pornography with a number of underage DVDs so large that prosecutors assumed he had an intent to distribute, but eventually ruled that he was collecting it for himself. Watsuki himself admitted an attraction to elementary school girls in a deposition. He was fined the equivalent of $1900 and continues to work on Rurouni Kenshin at Shonen Jump today.

Mini Confirms John Cooper Works GP for Production

Motortrend News Feed - 4 hours 22 min ago

Last year, Mini showed off the John Cooper Works GP concept, a track-focused version of its Hardtop model that came with a wild aero kit, a stripped-out interior, and an integrated roll cage. Now, Mini’s confirmed that the JCW GP is headed for production and should land on dealer lots in 2020.

We don’t have any more information on suspension changes or engine upgrades, but based on what Mini did with the 2006 Mini Cooper S Works GP and the 2012 Mini John Cooper Works GP, expect a small power bump and a punishingly firm ride. Hopefully, Mini will release more details at the upcoming Los Angeles auto show.

Mini said it also plans to feature the John Cooper Works Knights Edition at its booth. To turn the John Cooper Works Hardtop into the Knights Edition, Mini added the optional exhaust and chrome tips. It then gave the car a black and silver appearance package with red stripes. We don’t have pricing info at the moment, but Mini says the Knights Edition will go on sale early next year.

Mini will also have three other special editions at the show. The Yin Yang Edition is a Cooper S Countryman with black-on-white paint and all-weather luggage and floor mats. The Starlight Edition is a Cooper S Clubman with a blue-on-silver design that comes with a Mini-branded luggage cart. Finally, the International Orange Edition starts life as a John Cooper Works Hardtop and gets orange paint, 18-inch wheels, a dual-mode exhaust, and several black or carbon-fiber accents.

Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept Previews Racing Version of SUV

Motortrend News Feed - 5 hours 46 min ago

Just when we were getting used to the idea of a $200,000 SUV, Lamborghini has thrown us another curveball. It’s preparing a racing version of the Urus that will hit the track in 2020.

For now, the Lamborghini Urus ST-X concept gives us a taste of the upcoming track variant. This model debuted at the 2018 Lamborghini World finals, featuring a bold rear wing and side-exit exhausts in a hexagonal design, as well as 21-inch center-locking aluminum alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Lamborghini says the race car is 25 percent lighter than the standard production Urus, and it’s capable on both on- and off-road circuits.

Output remains 641 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. But larger air intakes optimize cooling of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. Other updates support safety, including a steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank. Topping it all off is a Verde Mantis paint job and an exposed carbon fiber hood.

The Urus ST-X will race in a single-make championship on FIA-approved circuits in Europe and the Middle East. These events will begin in 2020, Lamborghini says in a statement. The races will take on an “arrive and drive” formula offering customers car and technical support during the race weekend.
