WARREN, OHIO - Investigators on Monday tried to piece together what eight teenagers crammed into a stolen SUV were up to before the vehicle flipped over into a pond, killing six of them. Authorities gave few details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday, speeding down a two-lane road. On Monday, the SUV's owner met with police and filed a stolen-car report. Although the father of one of the dead said the teenagers were coming home from a sleepover, the mother of another boy killed said that her son and his best friend had lied about staying over at each other's homes.

The cost of developing the infotainment system and other sophisticated electronics for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee left the refreshing of the iconic brand's flagship SUV over budget. So much so that it will delay the design of several other new Chrysler Corp. models. But that's OK given the considerable profitability and consequent importance of the Grand Cherokee, which is the retail sales leader among full-size SUVs with 154,734 sold in 2012. "There's so much money in these vehicles, and they are running three shifts at Jefferson North," the Detroit assembly plant where Grand Cherokees are built, said Joe Phillippi, an industry analyst who runs the AutoTrends consulting firm.

LAS VEGAS - Bullets were flying from a black Range Rover at a gray Maserati as the vehicles raced toward a red light on the Las Vegas Strip. Beneath the neon lights, police say, the Maserati ran a red light at one of the Strip's busiest intersections and smashed into a taxi that exploded into flames early Thursday, killing the two people inside. Three more cars and a utility truck collided at the crossroads home to Bellagio, Caesars Palace, and Bally's, leaving at least six more people injured as the Range Rover sped off in the predawn darkness.

Subaru really is the automotive poster child for that old saying, "necessity is the mother of invention. " When America fell in love with SUVs back in the '90s, Subaru found itself without the wherewithal to develop one. So, it took its all-wheel-drive Legacy wagon, jacked it up a bit, tacked on some macho-styling cues, and presto: The pioneering Outback crossover SUV was born. Because crossovers are based on car platforms instead of truck chassis, as the original SUVs were, they offer more car-like ride and handling.

The completely redesigned 2013 Range Rover is, predictably enough, the best one ever. As such, it retains its off-road primacy among luxury SUVs. When it comes to slogging through mud and sand, fording streams and tap dancing up rocky inclines, the Range Rover is the upmarket king of the hill. I know, I know. Who's going to go mudding and fording and bouncing off rocks in vehicles with base prices between $83,545 and $130,995? But thanks to the off-road driving programs afforded Range Rover customers, the number of owners taking their vehicles on mud-and-crud expeditions is doubtlessly higher than the luxury SUV general population.

DETROIT - The largest recall in Toyota's 75-year history is threatening to undermine the carmaker's comeback from natural disasters and embarrassing safety problems. The company on Wednesday recalled 7.43 million cars, trucks, and SUVs worldwide to fix faulty power window switches that can cause fires. The recall affects more than a dozen models produced from 2005 through 2010 around the world including the Camry, the top-selling car in the United States. It's bigger than the seven million vehicles recalled two years ago for floor mats that can trap accelerator pedals and cause unintended acceleration.

ROSEVILLE, MICH. - Investigators will take soil samples from the ground beneath a suburban Detroit driveway after a man told police he believes that he witnessed the burial there of missing Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa about 35 years ago, police said Wednesday. Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said that his department got a tip from the man, who said he "thinks it may have been Jimmy he saw interred. " Hoffa was last seen on July 30, 1975, outside a suburban Detroit restaurant where he was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain.

The man who gunned down Plymouth Township Officer Bradley Fox after a foot chase along the Schuylkill Trail on Thursday was an ex-con who had run out of options, authorities said. Wounded and almost certainly facing life in prison, Andrew C. Thomas turned his Beretta handgun on himself and fired into his chest. That was the narrative investigators offered Friday to explain how a rush-hour accident in the heart of Montgomery County led to the first fatal shooting of a Plymouth police officer.
