Ford Alton F 650 XUV

We've seen some outrageous F-650-based vehicles like this before (the DeBerti for one), but for some reason, the Alton F-650 XUV jumped out at us at the Chicago Auto Show. Perhaps we were already focused on Ford's Work Solutions trucks in the vicinity, but this insane beast just put our DSLRs on autopilot. The F-650-based XUV was built by Alton Manufacturing and carries a GVWR of 25,999 lbs. That makes the 660 ft-lbs of torque generated by its 7.2L Caterpillar engine seem paltry. Besides the big-rig-meets-Excursion bodywork, your nearly $200,000 expenditure for this XUV will get you hardwood floors, custom captains chairs, a 42-speaker sound system, two drop-down 16-inch TVs plus a 42-inch plasma, four computer workstations, plus a train horn. Oh, you'll also get bragging rights for the biggest, baddest truck in 99% of the world's neighborhoods

2011 BMW X3 M Sport Package

Even though the company's second generation 'baby' SUV was just unveiled, the German automaker decided it is also time to offer a preview of the 2011 BMW X3 M-Sport Package.
As you can see the 2011 BMW X3 M-Sport Package enhances the compact SUV by giving it a more aggressive appearance thanks to the new front apron with larger air intakes, side skirts, a redesigned rear spoiler which come painted in body colour plus high-gloss window surrounds and roof rails.
