"I used to live my life a quarter mile at a time," Vin Diesel's character narrates. Yes, we remember. And we liked it.

The first full-length trailer for "Fast and Furious 9" has dropped, continuing the saga that started 19 years ago. Known to F&F fanboys as "F9", the new movie looks to carry over most of the themes that have made the franchise so popular - fast cars, beautiful landscapes, defeating evil with questionable techniques, and some family drama (including a resurrection).

From the opening to the trailer's closing, the music sets the mood. Early in the trailer, Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" plays but as the action picks up, "Frequency 75" by DJ Snake takes over.

We see Diesel's character Dom being chased by a bevy of bad guys with the action pausing just long enough for viewers to see Dom's wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) land squarely on the windshield of the Dodge Charger Diesel is piloting. From there, the trailer focuses on bringing up the rivalry between Dom and his brother Jakob (John Cena) as the two also fight Cipher (Charlize Theron).

Also, Han's back. That was a surprise.

Along the way, there are some pretty slick cars driven, destroyed, and on display including the Charger, a rocket-powered Pontiac Fiero, Toyota Supra, a few BMWs, police cars, Jeep Gladiator, and Ford Mustang. There's also airplanes, military convoy vehicles, buses, and Lamborghinis. Typical F&F stuff.

By the looks of the trailer. the plot line of "F9" brings along the series just far enough to create yet another need for yet another sequel. See all the action for yourself when it opens May 22.

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 results of that long-running relationship are on display with the BDS Bronco, which features Fox 2.5 PES coilovers, BDS rear adjustable control arms and track bar, swaybar disconnect, and 37-inch BFGoodrich KM3 tires. The Bronco's bumpers have been replaced with CrawlTek Revolution units that feature a recessed winch mount, recovery hooks and more.

The Toyota Highlander entered its fourth generation for the 2020 model year, which brought sleek style, updated tech, and a premium-look interior. A new XSE trim joined the lineup for 2021, and for 2022, Toyota is adding a new hybrid-only Bronze Edition trim.

  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Digital rearview mirror
  • Ambient interior lighting
  • Memory driver's seat with 10-way power adjustments

The Highlander carries on into 2022 with a standard 3.5-liter V6 that makes 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. A Highlander Hybrid is available, which mates a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors. Combined system output is 243 horsepower. With the V6 on board, the Highlander can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

All 2022 Highlander models get Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+, which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, road sign assist, full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane departure alerts, lane tracing assist, a sway warning system, and automatic high beams. Those features and the Highlander's excellent crash testing scores were good enough for the SUV to earn a Top Safety Pick + designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
