In this clip from WatchMojo, they pick their top 10 favorite cars from animated television and movies – excluding cartoon representations of real-world cars.

PAL-V Liberty Flying Car Heading to the Skies in 2021
Of the many things we were promised as kids were jetpacks, self-lacing shoes, and cars that could fly. While there have been a number of attempts to create and produce flying vehicles, most of them have never made it past the prototype stage.

2020 Toyota Highlander First Drive Review: A Handsome and Efficient Daily Driver

2020 Toyota Highlander First Drive Review: A Handsome and Efficient Daily Driver
If you go back in the rewind machine to 2001, most of the SUVs on the market were rugged, body-on-frame models which drove much more like trucks than like cars. Then, Toyota came along with the Highlander and shook up the growing segment with a vehicle that rode much more like a car or a minivan than a truck, and expanding the daily driving appeal of SUVs pretty dramatically.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch
Throughout the years, BMWs have had certain design elements which are pretty universal – from the blue, black, and white round hood badge to some kind of kidney-shaped grille. One of the more interesting BMW designs I’ve ever seen is the BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch, a one-off vehicle designed by Italian firm Bertone for the German automaker. Originally revealed in 1970, the Garmisch was a boxy 2+2 coupe with distinctively Italian looks.

2020 BMW M2 CS Coupe Specs and Pricing Details
Frankly, I think the BMW M2 was pretty close to perfect from the minute it first turned up in 2015. But that certainly didn’t stop BMW from trying to improve upon it by giving it more power and reducing weight.

Supercars vs. Speed Bumps

Supercars vs. Speed Bumps
There are few more annoying things when you’re driving a sports car with low ground clearance than encountering a speed bump. I speak from personal experience, having scraped the lowest plastic diffuser on my Jaguar F-TYPE countless times over the nasty bumps in my Chicago neighborhood.

Gingerbread Jeep Looks Good Enough to Eat

Gingerbread Jeep Looks Good Enough to Eat
Over the years, I’ve seen countless custom Jeep Wranglers, but I can say with certainty that this is the first one I’ve come across that was made with gingerbread and frosting. The talented pastry team at Arizona’s Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain resort spent over 250 hours putting together this amazing confectionary off-roader using over 500 pounds of candy and 1000 individual gingerbread tiles.

This Year One 1974 Jeep Cherokee Is a Brutish Beauty

This Year One 1974 Jeep Cherokee Is a Brutish Beauty
It’s hard to believe it, but there was once a time when the Jeep Cherokee didn’t yet exist. It first came on the scene back in 1974, as a two-door version of the Jeep Wagoneer. If you love the look of these classic 4x4s, there’s one currently for sale up on eBay, and it looks pretty sweet. Touted as the sportier alternative to the Wagoneer, the first Cherokee had a single, long window behind the B-pillar.

The Brubaker Box Was The Most Awesome VW Bug Conversion Ever

The Brubaker Box Was The Most Awesome VW Bug Conversion Ever
Back in the 1970s, converting Volkswagen bugs into other things was a pretty popular pastime. I suppose it was the relative simplicity of their chassis design, and easily removable bodies that made them easy targets. One of the most amazing VW bug conversions I’ve ever seen has got to be the Brubaker Box. Curtis Brubaker would convert VW Beetles into a sort of a low minivan.

This 1979 Plymouth Trailduster Is Retro Fantastic

This 1979 Plymouth Trailduster Is Retro Fantastic
There was a time when 2-door, 4×4, body-on-frame SUVs were widely available. These days, pretty much all we’ve got in the US is the Jeep Wrangler, and the forthcoming Land Rover Defender 90. But if you long for something with more of a retro style, check out this 1979 Plymouth Trailduster that’s headed to the Barrett-Jackson 2020 Scottsdale auction without a reserve price. I love how this truck has basically been left in its original state, with only a few minor modifications over the course of its 40 year lifespan – specifically the removal of its running boards, and the addition of a cassette player.

What’s the Difference Between AWD and 4WD?

What’s the Difference Between AWD and 4WD?
It’s clear that there’s a difference between vehicles that can send power to just two wheels or all four of them, but the terms “all-wheel drive” and “4-wheel drive” actually mean different things. In a nutshell, an all-wheel drive vehicle can variably send power between the front and rear wheels, dynamically distributing power via a central differential.
