Composite Beds On Pickup Trucks - Boon or Bane?
The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out with all guns blazing. It doesn’t offer a plethora of engine options like its American rivals, but it still has a strong and loyal fan base who swear by its reliability. No wonder the Tundra and the Tacoma have a high demand even in the pre-worshipped market. While the 2022 model’s highlight was the new hybrid engine, there’s one other thing that deserves attention – its composite bed. It is said to be more abuse-friendly, but is that true?
2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 All Set To Make Its Racing Debut
Chevy introduced the Silverado ZR2 recently as its flagship off-road truck. Now, the company is putting money where its mouth is by having it compete in the upcoming ‘Best In The Desert King Shocks Laughlin Desert Classic’ race. It might be the truck’s official racing debut, but the prototypes have been taking part in such competitions since 2019. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see how the Silverado ZR2 performs at the event.

These 10 Fast ‘Fuel-Powered’ Pickup Trucks Shouldn’t Be Forgotten When Electric Trucks Take Over
We talk about how the upcoming electric pickup trucks are fast and heavy on performance. Trucks like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, etc. are all quicker than some of the famous supercars of this era. Although internal combustion-engined trucks aren’t known to be ‘fast’, there are a handful of them that could are quite agile. Doug DeMuro decided to list 10 such cool fast trucks, and we agree with every entry on this list.
Chevrolet ZRX - The Raptor and TRX-Rivalling Off-Road Performance Truck That Chevy Desperately Needs
GM has been quite active in the pickup truck space since the beginning. It has even bifurcated its trucks between two brands – Chevrolet and GMC – and combined, both of them rake up pretty good numbers. Chevy brings in more sales as opposed to GMC and has managed to keep up with Ford and Ram in terms of models and trim levels on each of them. It even announced an electric Silverado that could arrive in a couple of years. However, the automaker has lagged in the case of a performance off-road truck. There are Silverado trims with off-roading prowess, but there’s no standalone model like the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram 1500 TRX.
There were rumors of Chevy working on one such product, but there’s still no concrete detail. It was rumored to be called the ZRX, but those were mere speculations. Chevy had trademarked the ‘ZRX’ moniker sometime back, but there seems to be no development on that front thus far. Is the automaker missing out on something big by not offering a performance off-road truck to the market? We sure think so.
After Ford and Ram, Chevy Decides to Come up With an Off-Road-Ready Version of the Silverado Truck
Chevy is taking baby steps towards competing with the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 in the off-roading, performance truck department. Out of the Big Three, Chevy is the only one not to offer a full-fledged off-road model for the Silverado. Ford has the F-150 Raptor (and Raptor R V-8 in the works), whereas Ram has the 1500 TRX. While Chevy hasn’t come up with a standalone off-roading model yet, it has teased a new trim, something similar to what Ford does with the Tremor and Ram does with the 1500 Rebel. Chevy has plans to offer the Silverado in the ZR2 outfit that will give you the freedom to take your bowtie truck off the roads without much hesitation. Well, better late than never!
SVE Unveils the 700-Horsepower Yenko Silverado That Chevy Won’t Built
SVE has been associated with GM for a very long time. In over three decades, the aftermarket company has tuned over 65,000 vehicles. SVE made headlines when it revived the Syclone badge for Canyon-based 2019 and 2021 models.
The company even builds Silverado-based Yenko S/C editions. The company released an 800-horsepower version of the truck last year. Now, it has come up with a 710-horsepower iteration of this Yenko S/C called the California Edition. It will be available across the Silverado trim line and will be limited to just 50 examples.
This Chevy C-10 Mixes Dark Apocalyptic Looks With Extreme Aerodynamics
The Chevy C10, know in its senior years, has become the basis for a number of crazy custom projects from low-riders to extreme off-roaders. The thing is, though, that most of the examples of modified C10s in real life all the same outside of different paintjobs. This rendering, however, depicts something that goes beyond show car status.
This 1959 Chevy Apache Work Truck Restomod Includes A V-8 Engine That Makes Over 500 Horses
American trucks from back in the day are some of the hottest restomod projects that aftermarket companies and individuals are taking up today. We generally see a lot of Ford F100s go through the restomod process, but here we have a truck that isn’t quite as popular. This is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache work truck that was part of the ‘Task Force’ series launched by the bowtie back in the 50s. The restomod includes putting the Apache on a new chassis, tossing in a V-8 engine, and fitting a four-wheel-drive system to make it a practical, daily driver work truck, as opposed to a pavement pickup like the yesteryear GMC Syclone.
The Story of Turbo Titan - Chevy’s Long-Lost Gas Turbine Truck
With the latest and greatest in gas turbine engine technology, lateral pop-out headlights, and the weirdness of twin-dial steering, the Turbo Titan III was Chevrolet’s attempt at creating the truck of the future. But with Ford’s own Big Red promotional gas turbine truck already roaming the growing Interstate Highway system, what did Chevy bring new to the table of experimental big rigs?
Well, keep reading to find out how one of the coolest-named trucks ever made was built to revolutionize the way America hauled cargo around the country, how it came THIS CLOSE to becoming a series-production rig, and how it disappeared without a trace.
So let’s try to unravel the mystery and learn some new stuff along the way.
Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?
It was pretty hard to digest that one of the top truck manufacturers in the U.S., Chevrolet, was mum about electric trucks. At a time where every EV manufacturer was coming up with an offering to the open-bed segment, Chevy was out of the limelight for a very long time. Ford, on the other hand, has been active for years now, right from challenging Tesla to making official announcements.
But finally, the Bowtie has stepped up and officially announced its first-ever electric pickup truck in the form of the Silverado EV. And the icing on the cake? A range of 400 miles!
The Chevy Silverado Signature Edition Puts the Camaro to Shame
Performance trucks have been there for a very long time, but they are finally becoming mainstream now. While automakers are rolling out high-performance pickup trucks, aftermarket companies have also upped the ante to make them better than factory products. The new Callaway Silverado Signature Edition is the latest example. This big, burly truck with a V-8 engine has enough power and mechanical tech to beat even the Chevy Camaro in a straight-line race. Oh, what a sight that must be!
Chevrolet Details The 2021 Multi-Flex Tailgate
Chevrolet is here with a versatile tailgate of its own called the Multi-Flex tailgate. As expected, it is carried over as it is from the GMC trucks and given a new name. These tailgates certainly have an extra advantage over the simple ones that don’t offer any other function except for opening and closing. However, the Multi-Flex tailgate wasn’t the only news here; the 2021 models will come with some new standard features and better tow ratings.
The Chevy Silverado Will Finally Have a Cool Tailgate
First, it was the war of who’s got the biggest grille. Now the focus has shifted to tailgates. The main unique selling points of pickup trucks are cargo beds. While there isn’t much you can do in that aspect apart from offering different types of Tonneau covers, or illumination, or different material for the base. Ram and GMC changed the game when they launch tailgates that can be used more efficiently. These tailgates became the talk of the town, but surprisingly, the other players in the market, Ford and Chevrolet, didn’t make a move. Although we’re yet to see the former do something about it, Chevrolet has made its move.
The automaker has announced a “MultiFlex” tailgate that will be available for the 2021 Silverado. There isn’t a lot known yet, but Chevy will drop more details about it on September 21.
New Info On the Chevy Silverado ZR2 Proves It Won’t Compete With the Ram 1500 TRX or Ford F-150 Raptor
Full-size performance off-road trucks are picking up heat lately and it has piqued the interest of truck manufacturers and aftermarket companies alike. There was just one significant production-truck – the Ford F-150 Raptor – in this niche until recently, but Ram joined the fray with the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. We knew that Ram was working on the Raptor-killer even since it unveiled the TRX concept back in 2016, but there was also news about Chevy working on a product to take on these two.
However, Muscle Cars and Trucks has now reported that what we thought would be Chevy’s offering to the segment is just an off-road truck that won’t go up against the Raptor and the TRX.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado Yenko S/C By SVE
SVE is back again with yet another powerful Chevy build. The tuner is known to customize GM trucks and has customized over 65,000 vehicles in its 25-year history to date. It even acquired rights to reincarnate the Syclone badge that was synonymous with fast trucks and built two editions of it; a 2019 Syclone and a 2021 Syclone. This time around, the company has laid its hands on a Silverado and given it a mighty boost. Called the Silverado Yenko S/C, the truck now boasts a V-8 engine that makes 800 horses! This truck should be your pick if you are looking for a fast, powerful full-size pickup truck.

Check Out This Amazing 1961 Chevy Corvair Rampside That Stopped By Jay Leno’s Garage
The Chevrolet Corvair is mostly known as a rear-engined compact car that GM built from 1959 to 1969. It was a somewhat innovative car for the era and even though it had handling issues that sparked more than 100 lawsuits, it’s now a prized collectible. But Chevrolet also used the Corvair name for a line of vans and trucks it produced from 1961 to 1965. The Rampside truck just stopped by Jay Leno’s Garage and the TV celebrity explains why it’s an important piece of American history.
Are You Willing To Spend $80,000 On a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado RST?
These days, people find stock vehicles to be boring and generally add stuff to make them more personal and exclusive. Last year, Jeep had said that a customer spends an average $800 on accessories on a Wrangler and $1,000 on a Gladiator. This shows that people love spending money on add-ons and accessories for their vehicles.
Then there are also some folks who spend almost the same amount of money on accessories that they spent on the vehicle itself. Here’s one such example of a $40,000 Chevy Silverado RST with extra accessories worth $38,000.
Chevy Will Offer The 2021 Colorado With Three New Packages
Chevy unveiled the 2021 Chevy Colorado facelift sometime back and it comes with a few aesthetic upgrades that would keep it fresh until the next-gen arrives. According to GMAuthority, Chevy will also be introducing three new packages solely focused on aesthetics. These packages will certainly add a nice zing to the new Colorado. Will these packages help the Colorado inch closer to the Toyota Tacoma in terms of sales figures?
