The Polaris 3-wheel Slingshot has always been a “Look-at-me” statement vehicle. It’s also a ton of fun to drive. The 2024 Slingshot model lineup maintains its attention-getting edge, adding to the funmobile’s livability and performance capabilities.

Polaris makes it easy to customize your Slingshot with a wide selection of accessories. Notable new Slingshot accessories include top and rear panel options for more excellent protection from the elements. Driving a Slingshot is an open-air experience. State laws vary, but some states classify the three-wheeler as a motorcycle and require that drivers and passengers wear helmets. Equipping your Slingshot with a top provides a modicum of protection from the baking sun and heavy rain. Add a back panel; you’ll also have less head and helmet buffeting from the wind.

The 2024 Slingshot Roush Edition brings upgraded performance to the platform with upgraded Brembo brakes, a race car-style steering wheel, and brand-specific styling elements.

The five model variants of the 2024 Polaris Slingshot have starting prices that range from $21,999 for the Slingshot S with a manual transmission to $40,299 for the Slingshot Roush Edition with an automatic transmission. The model breakdown below outlines the primary differences, colorways, and starting prices for the 2024 Slingshot model.

2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition parked on stone with the ocean in the background and stormy clouds.

After a heroic four-year run as the fastest Wrangler to crawl rocks and take names, the 2024 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition will retire the crown. Rock crawling generally doesn't have much call for killer acceleration times. However, if you're Jonesing for a Hemi V-8 that can knock off 13-second quarter miles and shriek to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds on Saturday and then lock down dual Dana 44 axles to idle up and over steep off-road grades on 35-inch tires on Sunday, get your order in now for one of only 3,700 Rubicon 392 Final Edition models Jeep plans for 2024.
Why  the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition matters

Jeep famously sells every Wrangler it manufactures, with little direct competition before the Ford Bronco re-launch in 2022. Never appearing on the low side of 4x4 model price lists, Wrangler prices hold well, earning the most basic Jeep kudos for low depreciation. Jeep mixes trim levels, capabilities, colors, and icon references to offer a range of Wrangler variants, including the Wrangler Rubicon 392 starting in 2020.

The Aston Martin Vantage GT4

Both the GT4’s aerodynamics and cooling systems have had an overhaul, allowing the vehicle to be pushed to the limits and seek out every possible bit of performance on the track. These two improvements overlap somewhat, with the vehicle designed to improve airflow to both the engine and the brakes. Aston has also put work into ensuring the racer is easy to work with and whoever is behind the wheel will have the utmost confidence in the vehicle.
