The Chevy Colorado ZR2? Good. Good for being a truck, good for offroading. The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison? That’s what you get when Chevrolet partners up with American Expedition Vehicles (most well known for making wild off-roady Jeep pickups), and festoons it with armored plates for ultimate off-roading potential.…
The 2018 Nissan Titan may be one of the most clever pickups I’ve ever driven. Between the numerous bins inside to the integrated tie-downs in the bed, the truck actually makes good use of its enormous size.
A company called ARE, which makes all kinds of truck accessories, has announced that it’s invented the first bed cover that both rolls back and pops up. If you’ve ever used a pickup, you can’t tell me this isn’t awesome.
Let me get this out of the way right now: the Chicken Tax is bad and dumb for preventing us from getting good little trucks like the Volkswagen Amarok. It should die. I’m spending the week in an Amarok, camping out at the Nürburgring and flooring it on the Autobahn like a maniac. What would you like to know about a…
Pickups are great for hauling heaps of whatever, but less optimal for keeping your tools organized. Unless you’ve got a nice cargo-sorting system like this old Ford Super Duty’s sweet disappearing bedside tool box. I mean, it looks amazing, though I think I see why this tech didn’t catch on.
The 2018 Ford F-150 is still available with a good old fashioned V8, but the top engine option is the turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Even better than that is the High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, but you can only get that in the Raptor off-road truck—until 2019, when you’ll be able to get the big booster daddy in the…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the stories you need to know.
I try to avoid lobbing clichés like “holy grail” and “ultimate barn find” around too often, but we’ve got a freaking 1983 Toyota four-wheel drive manual transmission single cab pickup truck with less than 8,000 miles on our hands here, people. It’s time to freak out.
I know that the specs listed about trucks are just long columns of boring numbers, but those numbers actually do have some meaning in the messy real world. The amount of weight you can comfortably place in the bed of the truck, the payload, that’s one of those numbers. Even though neither that boulder or that Ranger…
Listen. I didn’t want to have to be the one to say this, but I’m going to be the one to say it. Big pickup trucks should not be allowed on the roads as a casual everyday driving vehicle.
GMC just debuted a new version of the 2019 GMC Sierra called the “Elevation,” and not only is it damn good looking, but it also comes stock with an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, and can be optioned with an “X31" off-road package.
What do you get when you want to lunch on a Raptor? You get a Tyrannosaurus Rex, naturally. This is the Ram TRX, complete with at least 575 horsepower, and Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles just confirmed it’s going into production.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Alex wrecked his Prius, but he is using this as an opportunity to get what he has always wanted: a pickup truck. The only hangup is that his budget is tight, and we all know finding a good truck for cheap is not easy. What car should he buy?
Yesterday, I was driving on the highway and saw a flatbed hauling a filthy, rusty old pickup truck. That’s not uncommon where I live. This truck, though, was uncommon: it had a pair of tall exhaust pipes, wood panels on the sides of the bed, behind the big rear fenders, and, on the doors, a big decal that read “LI’L…
Pickup trucks! They carry a lot of people these days. Just look at the Volkswagen Tanoak concept. It seats two up front and three comfortably in the back. That’s a lot of people! What is the correct amount of people? Don’t worry, after much science I have come to the right number.
The 2019 GMC Sierra’s carbon fiber cargo bed and crazy six-way tailgate are the real headlines from the truck’s debut, but for a small group of particularly particular people, the new truck’s steering wheel is worth getting excited about too.
The 2019 GMC Sierra is, as ever, an upscale variant of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Today GM announced what’s in the latest version, and more interestingly, how it’s different from its Chevy counterpart. Actually, it’s got one thing that makes it different from every other pickup ever.
The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor has finally been revealed in its final form, and even though we don’t have a full spec sheet yet we can compare quite a few metrics between this and its big American brother the F-150 Raptor.
We’ve already geeked out a little over the 2019 Ram 1500’s interior when we first saw it at the Detroit Auto Show. After getting a little more time to climb around the cab, we found even more interesting stuff.
