Composite Beds On Pickup Trucks - Boon or Bane?

Composite Beds On Pickup Trucks - Boon or Bane?

Toyota Tundra comes with a composite bed unlike the aluminum and steel ones from the big three, but are composite beds the future?

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?

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a true compact pickup, and the first one since might be an EV!

A new rumor circulated the web says that Nissan is working on a new EV, but not just any EV – it’s reported a compact electric pickup truck. It’s not just the size and motivation that would make such a model unique, but the fact that it will have zero competition if it’s launched soon enough. Sounds crazy, right? Well it is, but maybe crazy is exactly what the industry needs right now, and it won’t be the first time Nissan created its own segment based on the compact pickup truck.

Watch A Scania Skip Truck and A Scania Grab Truck Gang Up On A Volvo Pump Truck On A Drag Strip

Three lorries giving their all in straight-line races is the dose of fun you need today!

The folks at Carwow organized a different type of race this time. They got hold of three big lorries (known as ‘Trucks’ Stateside, but we’ll stick to calling them lorries to avoid confusion) to compete against each other in a series of drag and rolling races, along with a brake test. They all do different kinds of stuff. One of them is a grab lorry, the other with a concrete pumping machine, and the final one a skip lorry. In the conventional races with cars, you can kind of guess which one is going to win. But, that’s not the case here and we don’t know which one to root for either!

1944 Volkhart V2 Sagitta - The Luftwaffe's Sleek Courier Car

1944 Volkhart V2 Sagitta - The Luftwaffe’s Sleek Courier Car

The untold story of Germany’s forgotten courier car that was faster than a Porsche

Within the vast automotive world, there are cars from a certain era that aren’t talked about much. The 1940s are times most remembered for the Second World War, which forced many of the carmakers to temporarily switch from making cars to assembling military equipment, such as Tanks and Bombers. It seems the subject is taboo when we talk about German vehicles, in particular, such as the obscure 1947 Volkhard V2 Sagitta. Although the car’s roots are, even today, frowned upon by some, it featured some revolutionary design solutions. Today, we are sharing everything we have uncovered about this unrealized and forgotten automotive treasure.

The Story of Big Red - A Turbine-Power Truck That Almost Disappeared

The Story of Big Red - A Turbine-Power Truck That Almost Disappeared

How cans something so big just vanish from the public eye?

With a 600 horsepower gas turbine engine that could haul not one, but two trailers at the same time, and with amenities like a bathroom and TV, this was supposed to be the future of trucking in America. It was glamorous, beautiful and a sign of what the superhighways of tomorrow would look like, but it almost came to a heartbreaking end.

This is the story of Ford’s ‘Big Red’ Turbine truck from the ‘60s, and how it nearly disappeared from the face of Earth after years and years of collecting dust in a warehouse.

Watch The Mercedes Unimog Conquer Everything That Comes In Its Way

The Unimog also holds the world record for the highest altitude reached by a four-wheeler!

Mercedes-Benz has a fairly rich experience in building vehicles that feel at home off road. No, I’m not about talking about the G-Class. The company has many other vehicles that are more suited to such trails, and the Unimog you see here is one of them. It is an all-terrain truck that the company has been building for many decades now. Mat Watson of Carwow and Mat Watson Cars recently took a ride in one of them at the company’s off-roading facility in Germany. Is this one of the best off-road trucks that are in production today?

Tesla's Electric Semi Could Run up to 621 Miles Between Charges

Tesla’s Electric Semi Could Run up to 621 Miles Between Charges

Mind you, this is for a Class 8 truck that can take up to 80,000 pounds

People have major range anxiety when it comes to passenger EVs; so you can imagine how commercial truck operators must feel about electric cargo haulers. Back in 2017, Musk had said that the upcoming commercial Semi would achieve as much as 500 miles of range on a single charge. It seemed almost impossible back then, but battery technology has taken huge strides. Three years later, Tesla is now talking about a 600+ miles range. Does it still seem unbelievable? I don’t think so.

This G-Class Pickup Rendering Reminds Us of What the Mercedes X-Class Should Have Been

It’s too late to cry now, but hot damn, the G-Class would have made for an ass-kicking pickup

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is the second most long-serving car in Daimler’s portfolio, outranked only by the tougher-than-a-tardigrade Unimog. For that reason alone, we believe that the X-Class pickup truck should have been based on the Geländewagen in the first place. Sadly, Mercedes-Benz went asking for help from Nissan.
