The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Pickup Truck: This Is It The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Pickup Truck: This Is It

A couple of days ago we got a tip that the upcoming Jeep Wrangler pickup truck would be called the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and now it seems official images have leaked confirming the new name. It looks—well, it looks like a Wrangler pickup!

Shop trucks are part of life for any joint that’s painting, restoring, and upgrading power in various cars and trucks. Errands need to be run, and supplies have to be picked up. Classic Car Studio Speed Shop is known for performing incredible upgrades on cool, vintage rides. They can’t make their runs around town in…

We Drove One Of The Smallest Fire Trucks In The World and It Ruled

This is a Daihatsu Hijet. You find these trucks and vans working all over the world, but ones like this from the ‘90s are just starting to come to the U.S. This one came over as a “low speed vehicle” limited to just about 25 miles an hour. But more importantly, this one is an actual fire truck.

This Seems to Be the Only Vehicle Ever Made With Retractable Turn Indicators This Seems to Be the Only Vehicle Ever Made With Retractable Turn Indicators

Right by my house is a small bar called The Amber Flash, one of the oldest and most run-down turn-signal fetishist bars. I went by there the other night for a nice crisp Blinker Fluid to, you know, take the edge off, when I noticed two sullen guys slumped over at the bar, holding damp paper towels to their faces.

Volkswagen Shows Off Cargo Van Version of Its Reborn Electric Microbus Volkswagen Shows Off Cargo Van Version of Its Reborn Electric Microbus

The original Volkswagen Microbus started life as a sketch by Dutch VW importer Ben Pon for a small, useful cargo delivery vehicle. The idea of it having all those windows and hauling families and covens of hippies came later—it was a cargo vehicle first. That’s why Volkswagen’s announcement of a cargo version of their …

Our Old Pal the Low-Ass 11-Foot-8 Bridge Dishes Out Hard Street Justice to a Red Light Runner

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with my favorite local celebrity, the ornery-but-fair Durham, NC bridge we all lovingly call the 11foot8 bridge. Unlike what most people think, the name does not come from the Civil War Union General Elevah Fough-Tate, but rather from the bridge’s clearance height, which is a…

The 2018 Nissan Titan Is An Unexpectedly Smart Stuff-Hauler The 2018 Nissan Titan Is An Unexpectedly Smart Stuff-Hauler

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.

Driving the Perfect Ford Bronco Was a Religious Experience Driving the Perfect Ford Bronco Was a Religious Experience

The square-framed round-light’d face of a 1966 Ford Bronco is as classic and commanding of respect as Nick Offerman’s facial hair. The whole design is a tribute to freedom. This one, decorated with dents and revived with a healthy V8 engine, accomplishes something few customized cars ever do: it just freaking feels…

Why Did This Genius Truck Bed Hatch Take So Long to Invent? Why Did This Genius Truck Bed Hatch Take So Long to Invent?

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.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Configurator Is Live But Hidden, Still Shows Starting Price of $25,395 [Updated] The 2019 Ford Ranger Configurator Is Live But Hidden, Still Shows Starting Price of $25,395 [Updated]

Remember last week when Ford accidentally made its configurator live for their eagerly-awaited non-colossal truck, the 2019 Ranger? Then Ford said that the prices ($24,300 for the base, $24,000 if you don’t want a truck bed) were all wrong. Well, it’s back up, and those prices are still there.

What Do You Want to Know About the Volkswagen Amarok? What Do You Want to Know About the Volkswagen Amarok?

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…

2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water 2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water

The real big news about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport is the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid trim, which can apparently drive 31 miles on its battery alone. Both SUVs get a few other little updates for the new model year but a water wading depth sensor sounds like the most fun.

Hell Yeah I Painted My Headlights Yellow Hell Yeah I Painted My Headlights Yellow

I’ve wanted yellow fog lights on my truck forever. I finally attempted to realize my dream, screwed up a lot, screwed up some more, and eventually triumphed. Come along and ride on this fantastic voyage with me.

This Pickup Truck Has Secrets

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 First 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Reviews Are In: It's an Off-Road Beast But Boring on the Streets

This week the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor was let off the leash in Australia, where it was developed, and the Aussies all seem to be saying the same thing: riotous off-road, a little weak off the line.

A 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Pulling an Airstream Basecamp Is the Best Version of 'Camping' A 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Pulling an Airstream Basecamp Is the Best Version of 'Camping'

A pickup truck with a silver Airstream trailer behind it is quintessential Americana. That’s as true today as it was 50 years ago, except now the experience can be ridiculously comfortable with a 2018 Ford F-150 diesel and a downright futuristic Airstream Basecamp trailer.

The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited Luxury Truck Gets the Raptor's 450 HP Engine The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited Luxury Truck Gets the Raptor's 450 HP Engine

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…

This 1963 Land Rover Has the Perfect Old Truck Aesthetic This 1963 Land Rover Has the Perfect Old Truck Aesthetic

There are plenty of great looking classic trucks on the road still, but there’s something about an early Land Rover that is just so freaking pretty. And this one in particular is on another level.

The Nissan Frontier Replacement You Can't Have in America Is a Solid Truck The Nissan Frontier Replacement You Can't Have in America Is a Solid Truck

The 2018 Nissan Frontier can be the cheapest new pickup truck in America, undercutting largely because it hasn’t been redesigned since 2004. That’s not the case outside the U.S. though, where the Navara has replaced it. Here’s what America’s missing in Nissan’s latest diesel-powered mid-sized pickup.
