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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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…
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 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.
The 2019 Suzuki Jimny has just been redesigned for the first time since dinosaurs ruled the Earth, but it’s still the same square and plucky international off-roader we know and love. Watch it frolic and fight its way through assorted obstacles here.
Summer is in full swing and you know what that means–it’s bad driving on the beach season! The people in this poor Jeep Wrangler were probably having a lot of fun until the ocean tried to eat their vehicle. It damn near got the thing, too.
The Sherp is basically a set of 60-inch tires bunched together and hooked up to a tractor engine. It’s not very fast or comfortable, but holy moly can it chug its way through anything.
While the high-tech Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo was trying to set a new lap time record on the Nürburgring’s insanely long Nordschleife course, I couldn’t help being distracted by the action happening on over on the grand prix track. Big, rowdy, diesel-belching race trucks were sliding around the curve at the end of the…
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.
Sometimes, boring is good. When you’re dealing with 70,000 pound double-trailer FedEx trucks, boring isn’t just good, it’s fantastic. In the world of trucking, excitement usually means expensive or dangerous trouble. That’s how you could tell that Volvo’s relatively boring public demonstration of truck platooning was…
Ford Broncos were born to run free, and this little Baja video has some of the most satisfying scenes of a sweet old 4x4 in its element. This ’68 Bronco is a little beefier than your average vintage SUV, which makes it that much more exciting to watch in the wild.
The video was just titled “Rally Truck Jump.” All of those things are relevant to my interests. I’ll click. I’ll watch. Even if it’s a garbage vertical video, I’m there, dude. I’ll watch all the sweet jumps. But I certainly didn’t expect to see a vintage work truck pretending to be Colin McRae’s Subaru here. Send it!
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…
You don’t need to take the 2018 Jeep Wrangler off-road to enjoy driving it. Every ride in this thing feels like an adventure. But when you do push it off the edge of the map, the barbarian spec Rubicon becomes the best sidekick you could ask for.
