After lining up the largest and most interesting field of Midwestern LeMons racers we’ve ever seen on Friday, we dropped the green flag on Saturday morning and presided over a drizzly, cold day of racing at GingerMan Raceway. When the checkered flag came out soon after sunset, we’d seen a lot of dramatic class battles and lead changes, and here’s how it all sorted out. There was once a time— actually, th ...

Fiat-Chrysler Trademarks “Trackhawk”—Is the Company Hellcatting All the Things?

Oct 6 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

So, uh, this is awesome: Per Allpar, Fiat-Chrysler recently registered a trademark for “Trackhawk”. Given that the “Trailhawk” moniker is currently applied to an off-road-centric Cherokee model, it’s patently obvious that the new badge is destined for Jeep and that it will stand for on-pavement performance. When you’re talking high-performance Jeeps, that conversation currently starts and stops with the Grand Cherokee SRT. But could that change? There are a few enticing possibiliti ...

Filed under: Paris Motor Show, Crossover, Hatchback, Fiat It's been a long time coming, but it's finally here. It's the new Fiat 500X: the rounder, somehow even more retro version of the Jeep Renegade. Joining an ever-expanding Cinquecento lineup alongside the 500, 500C and 500L, the new 500X is - to our eyes at least - the most handsome yet... better looking, at any rate, than the somewhat ungainly ...
