Ford has revealed the new Ranger MS-RT, a motorsport-inspired version of the pickup truck developed in collaboration with design specialists MS-RT.

Think of it as the alter ego of the Baja-inspired Ranger Raptor, at least that’s what Ford is claiming; the new Ranger MS-RT comes with a unique exterior look, Ford’s biturbo 2.0-liter diesel with 210 HP (213 PS) – the same one as in the Ranger Raptor-, and features a pretty generous equipment list as standard.

The unique exterior of the new Ranger MS-RT includes a hand-built front fascia with a honeycomb carbon fiber-effect grille and integrated fog lights, extended wheel arches and side skirts, a set of 20-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels, and carbon fiber-effect mirror caps.

The interior is trimmed in premium leather with contrast orange stitching, and features ambient lighting, heated front seats, Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen display, and MS-RT detailing on the floor mats and scuff plates.

The new Ford Ranger RS-MT is based on the Ranger Wildtrak, which means that the rear suspension retains its leaf springs, unlike the Ranger Raptor which makes use of coil springs. This means that the new RS-MT continues to offer a payload of up to 1,098 kg (2,420 lbs) and can tow up to 3,500kg (7,716 lbs), just like the regular Ranger.

“Ranger MS-RT is designed for customers who value Ranger’s hard-working capability but want the racing pedigree and hand-finished exclusivity of our MS-RT series”, said Brendan Lyne, director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “This eye-catching vehicle blends Ford’s decades of success in pick-up trucks with striking motorsport-inspired design to offer a road-focused truck combining immense kerb appeal with the hard-working ability that our customers love.”

The biturbo diesel engine is still mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, sending 210 HP (213 PS) and 368 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque down to the road via a selectable four-wheel-drive system. Customers can also choose a Maxhaust app-controlled soundbox, which is available as a dealer-fit option, for a sportier soundtrack.

The new Ford Ranger MS-RT will go on sale in select European markets from summer 2021, available in Super Cab or Double Cab body styles.

The new Land Rover Defender may be loaded with all kinds of trick technology to make off-roading easier than ever before, but there’s something about the older models that make them even more appealing.

This particular example is one of the finest we’ve seen on the used car market. Listed up for auction on Bring A Trailer, it is a 1992 model and is being sold with records of its comprehensive refurbishment, import documents, and a clean South Carolina title in the seller’s name.

As part of the refurbishment made to the Defender, it received a new hood, doors, and tailgate while also being refinished in Nardo Grey with matching wheel arches. Other key additions include a black soft top with roll-up sides, LED lighting, side steps, black badging, checker plating on the front wings, and Land Rover-branded mud flaps at all four corners.

Further adding to the appeal of the off-roader are black 16-inch Nemesis alloy wheels shod in 265/75 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires with white lettering. A steering damper and Bilstein shocks have also been also fitted.

Having lived out its formative years in the UK, the SUV has since been converted to left-hand drive and rocks a set of heated Corbeau front seats and four inward-facing rear jump seats. Power comes from is a 2.5-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder that had its timing belt, tensioner, injection pump, oil pan, and thermostat replaced in September.

At the time of writing, it had attracted a highest bid of $92,000. Given that the all-new, 2021MY Defender starts at $47,450 and tops out at $81,850, this might seem a little steep. Then again, refurbished old Defenders usually go for high prices, which demonstrate their desirability – and this one is no exception.

This is the Steyr Konzept tractor and while it was first showcased in late 2019, it only recently came across our radar having received a 2020 Good Design Award.

While the Steyr Konzept is very much, well, a concept, it is intriguing as it is based around a modular hybrid electric drive system that includes a diesel engine, a generator, and five (yes, five) electric motors, all of which are individually controlled.

Four of the electric motors used by the Konzept are found in the wheel hubs and get their juice from a centrally-mounted battery pack. Steyr says that “this system results in highly efficient, electric continuously variable drive, with fewer moving parts – as the mechanical transmission and hydraulic components have been eliminated – to deliver optimal energy flow with reduced power losses.”

The complex hybrid system can also recover and store energy when traveling downhill and the tractor can be easily charged through a standard socket. The use of electric motors in each of the four wheels also means the vehicle can send power precisely where it is needed, which is perfect for slippery farm tracks and grassy fields. Steyr also created the concept with a pure electric mode.

The tractor concept was named the recipient of a Good Design Award due to the creative yet practical thinking that went into its creation. This award also recognizes the Konzept’s technologies, including its innovative hybrid powertrain that isn’t just efficient but also compact.

Other intriguing technologies include a drone equipped with crop sensors that flies ahead of the vehicle during field work and transmitting data back to the cabin in real-time, as well as a Head-Up Display and an integrated display in the right-hand window.
