Jaguar May Be Cooking Up a Faster F-Pace and the Chevy Bolt Will Be Less Than $30K: The Evening Rush
Plus, a drone that can tow you and sandbags from Rogue Fitness.
The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.
New spy shots hint at a potential R version of the Jaguar F-Pace. According to spy photographers, the test vehicle seems largely untouched, aside from some gnarly rumbling out the tailpipes. If Jaguar sticks with its usual strategy, we can expect the F-Pace R to use Jag's supercharged V8—and while we can’t confirm power numbers yet, it wouldn’t be crazy to suggest this F-Pace could have more than 500 horsepower.
Subaru lovers rejoice...maybe. It appears there is a Subaru Tribeca replacement in the works. Although spy shots of the crossover are heavily disguised, you can tell it's fairly large—think Mazda CX-9 and Ford Explorer. Sources say that the powertrain will be the Subaru 3.6L=-liter flat-six commonly found throughout the Subaru lineup.
The upcoming Chevrolet Bolt will start at a very reasonable $29,995—after the federal government's $7,500 tax incentive, that is. In other words, you'll soon be able to snag an electric vehicle likely packing more range than a (base-model) Tesla Model 3 for less than $30K. Not too shabby.
Camping is one of the best ways to spend your time off. But waking up in a soggy sleeping bag is a mega bummer. End Sog-Bag (just made that up), and invest in a KampRite Double TentCot. By lifting you off the ground and out of harm’s way, the TentCot ensures every morning starts out dry.
The future has arrived: You can now buy a drone strong enough to tow a surfer. The Freefly Atla 8 is an octocopter that can pull you across your favorite body of water should the winds or waves go elsewhere. That said...the $17,000 price tag is a bit of a buzz kill.
If you are looking to improve your home gym to simulate real-life lifting scenarios, grab some discounted Rogue sandbags ASAP. While these ones are slightly used, it's only from being awesome—they're the exact sandbags used at the CrossFit games. Plus, that pre-lifted status means they come cheap.
Firepit and fireplace season is approaching, so you better be sure you have the necessary gear. If you need a wood carrier, take a look at this one from Ball & Buck. Made of heavy-duty canvas and carefully double-stitched, this carrier will last you for at least 200 cords of wood. Or something like that. Whatever a long time is for a wood carrier.
