Is there a demand for a trail-ready minivan? Toyota clearly thinks so. The 2022 Toyota Sienna Woodland Special Edition is designed to offer families more off-road prowess, but not much.

The Sienna Woodland Special Edition offers the van's all-wheel drive system and a number of extra goodies that help make it more trail-ready. It builds on the Sienna XLE and delivers a one-inch lift. Towing and hauling toys and cargo is made easier with the van's added tow hitch and standard 3,500-pound towing capacity, and roof rails with crossbars.

The 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition gets dark chrome-colored accents, black badging, and 18-inch wheels. Toyota will sell the model in an exclusive Cement color as well as Midnight Black Metallic.

Toyota has added navigation and a 12-speaker JBL 1,200-watt stereo system to the model. The list of standard features continues with super-long slide seats, second-row captain's chairs, Split & Stow 3rd Row seat, kick-activated sliding doors, heated front driver and passenger seats, second-row sunshades, and seven USB ports across the Sienna's three rows.

Each Sienna Woodland Special Edition comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alerts with lane trace assist, full speed adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, cyclist detection, and road sign recognition.

Pricing for the 2022 Toyota Sienna Woodland Special Edition yet to be announced. The company has said that once the van goes on sale this autumn, for every Woodland Special Edition model purchased. Toyota will make a $250 donation to the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF). A minimum donation of $250,000 has been promised.

Ford Bronco to rule SEMA this year

The Bronco RTR features a fun livery and several off-road upgrades.

The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show is an opportunity for the aftermarket and manufacturers to come together on wildly customized vehicles and to show off the latest parts and tech in the space. Now that the Ford Bronco has finally made its way to the public, it's not surprising to see several wild SEMA takes on the hottest SUV to hit the market in some time.

The new Bronco is capable and rugged on its own, but Tucci Hot Rods felt it needed more. The shop gave it that boost with a set of tracks in place of wheels, which are said to be great for deep snow and ice. This Bronco features a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and a seven-speed manual transmission to go with its Mattracks 88-Series quad tracks.

Vaghn Gittin Jr's RTR Vehicles imagined a Bronco package that could be installed at the dealer. The result is the Fun-Runner, which features several Ford Performance and Ford Licensed Accessories parts. It's based on a 2021 two-door Bronco Badlands, and comes with an eye-catching wrap, an Ultimate Dana 44 front axle, Ultimate Dana 60 semi-float rear axle, RCV Performance CV axles, and a performance intake for its four-cylinder engine.

The Bronco's bumpers have been replaced with CrawlTek Revolution units that feature a recessed winch mount, recovery hooks and more.

Supercharged V8 pickup

Watch the Ram TRX Lap the Nürburgring

The TRX looked awkward but completed the lap.

BTGDale via YouTube

The Ram TRX is a cartoonish truck with specs that would make most people shy away. Its size, sound, and imposing appearance live up to the hype laid out on the spec sheet, and its Hellcat-derived powertrain demands attention. The truck is one heck of an off-roader, too, but a recent YouTube video proves it can dance on a racetrack, too, though not as gracefully as the low-slung cars it passes.



The YouTubers took the TRX to the imposing Nüburgring in Germany to test its mettle on track. Unsurprisingly, the big Ram rolls over kerbs and is able to blast past several cars on the track. The biggest problem for the truck is its brakes, which end up cooked halfway through the lap. In between a few blasts of NSFW language, we can hear the driver note that his brake pedal is "about halfway to the floor," though he did retain some functionality after letting things cool off. The 6,400-pound truck would likely cook all but the most hardcore motorsport brakes.

The truck appears unmodified and looks to have just over 1,000 miles on the clock for the lap. Of course, the TRX looks about as at home on a track as a Mini Cooper would rock crawling, but the truck's 4.5-second 0-60 mph and 702 horsepower from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 are more impressive than many sports cars.
