2023 Kia EV6 GT, Jeep Grand Cherokee V-8, 2024 Acura ZDX Type S: The week in reverse

We drove the 2023 Kia EV6 GT, the two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee lost its V-8 engine option, and Acura teased pictures of the 2024 ZDX Type S. It’s the week in reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

We completed our first stint at the wheel of the 2023 Kia EV6 GT. The EV6 GT is far from perfect, but it’s very intoxicating with its can-do attitude. It shows Kia’s electric performance as it moves into a new era.

Our spy photography captured the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray roaming public roads without camouflage. Stripped of any fairing, the electrified Corvette appears to share design cues with the Z06, while also sporting a few different elements.

We learned that the V-8 engine option of the two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee has quietly disappeared. The mid-year set death of the V-8 in this model lowers the maximum towing capacity from 7,200 pounds to 6,200 pounds attained with the V-6. The 4xe plug-in hybrid remains the most powerful Grand Cherokee, but it’s said to tow 6,000 pounds.

The Rivian R1T and R1S got snow mode with the latest software update. Just before much of the US is hit by cold and snow, the electric pickup and SUV have received a new mode that reduces brake regeneration in the name of stability and improves cab heating functionality.

The Acura ZDX Type S 2024 received an official photoshoot while being tested on public roads. The electric crossover SUV will be based on GM’s Ultium powertrain components and will share parts with the Cadillac Lyriq, although it will sport its own styling inside and out.
