You Can Get a Fully Licensed, Brand New 1966-1977 Ford Bronco if You're Willing to Pay for it

You Can Get a Fully Licensed, Brand New 1966-1977 Ford Bronco if You’re Willing to Pay for it

It’s the closest thing you’ll get to owning an original first-generation Ford Bronco

The new Ford Bronco will arrive in 2020, but those who can’t wait that long now have the opportunity to have their fill with the original Bronco courtesy of a company called Gateway Bronco. The Illinois-based outfit has been restoring the first-generation Bronco since it started operations in 2016. But thanks to a partnership with Ford, Gateway Bronco has announced plans to go beyond restoring original Broncos and will build brand new, old Broncos under license from Ford. Mind you; these aren’t Gateway’s “interpretation” of the original Broncos. These are original Broncos that Gateway will build with the blessing of Ford. They even come with a five-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. Gateway plans to build three versions of the original Bronco, all in limited quantities. The price range of these models goes from $120,000 to $180,000.

14 Things You Have to Know about the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Facts That Could Make You Forgive It Its Front End (If you hate it, that is)

The official debut of the new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD is expected in February 2019 - probably at the Chicago Auto Show. Chevy, however, grew some balls and actually revealed first photos of the 2020 Silverado HD. Bask in the greatness of the new 2020 Silverado HD. Or don’t! The design turned out to be one of the most astoundingly courageous styling experiments in the industry. The front end looks so much “out there” that, from the looks of things, it seems that Chevy has done too much. GM designers are probably reliving the nightmare that they had with the introduction of the latest Camaro. Remember, that one received an “overnight” update after some massive hate from the whole freaking world.

The new Silverado HD, however, had to be as mad as it is.

"We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck," Brian Izard, the pickup’s lead exterior designer, said. "The result is a truck that looks like a piece of heavy machinery with modern, chiseled finishes and customer-focused details."

Well, it certainly looks like a piece of machinery, but that is only one of its traits (to some alluring, to many incomprehensive). While information on the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado is still largely hidden, I managed to find some cool facts that will make the new 2020 Silverado HD closer to you.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Jeep Gladiator

What can we say? The new Jeep Gladiator is here, and we’re about as excited as a kid on Christmas. Maybe even a little more excited. Not only is the Gladiator the Jeep truck that we’ve been begging for but it stays true to the brand’s off-road roots with solid axles, a six-speed manual transmission, massive off-road tires, and some decent mustard under the hood – all the things purists expect and then some. But, besides all of that fun, off-road-inspired goodness, did we mention that it’s based largely on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL and that it looks downright sexy? Well, we probably did in on of the many stories we’ve put out on the new Gladiator, but we still can’t keep our eyes off it. That’s why we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Well, there’s a ton of amazing wallpapers to choose from so take our favorite for what it is or check out our big gallery below for other options and download as many as you want!

The Chevrolet Silverado Was The Star of a Recent Detroit Red Wings Game For The Wrong Reasons

The Chevrolet Silverado Was The Star of a Recent Detroit Red Wings Game For The Wrong Reasons

It’s not often you see the Silverado get stuck in a pickle

Chevrolet had its hands on the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show launching the all-new Blazer. It was, by all accounts, a successful debut for the crossover. Unfortunately, one of Chevy’s most popular models - the Silverado pickup truck — didn’t have as good of a time 2,300 miles away in Detroit when it inexplicably went limp while in the middle of a low-key marketing stunt at the Little Caesars Arena during an NHL game between the St. Louis Blues and the hometown Detroit Red Wings.

Jeep’s new pickup is showing love to the 419

Thirteen years after introducing the Gladiator concept, Jeep finally came through on its word to launch a production model. The all-new, Wrangler-based Gladiator is a big deal, not just for Jeep, but for the entire pickup segment. We’ve already talked about the Gladiator numerous times in the last few days, but we’re back with another interesting nugget about the pickup. It’s an easter egg included inside the pickup that pays homage to its production roots.

A tough pickup truck that we have been dreaming about for ages is finally here. The news of a pickup truck from Jeep’s stable is not new; and by not new, I mean, it’s been doing rounds for almost a decade. Finally, the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator has arrived. The wait has been worth it because it is as tough as it can get, and it comes with manual transmission as it should! Put your tongues back in, purists.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Is A Surprisingly Good Off-Roader

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Is A Surprisingly Good Off-Roader

Go for the Adventure grade, and you’re sitting pretty, no matter the terrain

It seems like there’s no shortage of “off-road ready” crossovers on the market these days - or at least that’s the impression you might get glancing over all the PR fluff. But while glory shots on top of a mountain might look good, the actual capability of these machines doesn’t always live up to the hype. Fortunately, Toyota can both talk the talk and walk the walk, as I find out firsthand after the Japanese automaker flew me out to Carmel, California for a stint in the new 2019 RAV4.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton L200

Mitsubishi L200 Is A One-Ton Truck We Would Like, But Will Never Get

It is quite a shame that we won’t get a new one-ton truck - the 2019 Mitsubishi L200, otherwise known as the Triton. The new Mitsubishi L200 truck enters a competitive segment with the Nissan Navara, the Ford Ranger, the Toyota Hilux, and the Volkswagen Amarok. Yet, this isn’t an all-new truck. Revealed all the way back in 2014, the Mitsubishi L200 received quite a substantial redesign (a facelift if you will) for the new model year. Mitsubishi is keen to introduce it to 150 markets worldwide and aims to sell 180,000 units per year. Obviously, it is a strategic product, meaning that Mitsubishi went out of their way to make it good. Sustainable growth is one of the main aims for the company that recently almost bankrupted, and this is, along with the Eclipse crossover, a key product for it.

2021 Ford Bronco II aka "Baby Bronco"

2021 Ford Bronco II aka "Baby Bronco"

FoMoCo’s take on the Jeep Renegade

In March 2018, Ford unveiled its plans for the next two years, which includes many new models and a shift toward crossovers in the U.S. The bigger news includes dropping most cars in favor of SUVs, a hybrid version of the F-150 truck, and a revival of the iconic Bronco. The latter will be joined by a smaller sibling with similar boxy cues. A baby Bronco!

Described as a vehicle "designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends," the compact SUV was partially revealed in a teaser photo. In November 2018, photos of the actual vehicle leaked onto the web following a Ford dealer meeting. And based on what we can see, it’s aimed directly at Jeep. Specifically, while the new-generation Bronco will go against the all-popular Wrangler, the smaller crossover will take on the Renegade. There’s no official name for it yet, and details remain a mystery, but it could roll out by 2020.

Updated 11.14.2018 - Leaked photos from a dealer meeting shows the "baby" Bronco before we’re supposed to see it. Check out the photos in the gallery section.

Best Used Off-Road SUVs 2016

These monsters are built for something more than just being loyal servants

SUVs have played a dominant part in the industry. SUVs help you conquer places no other vehicle can. More or less, every segment in the auto industry has seen a make-shift revolution except SUVs. They’re still rugged, butch, and intimidating as ever. In fact, these beautiful monsters age gracefully and are known for their longevity and reliability. See the Landcruiser for example; or even the 4Runner. They’ve been around for decades and are still selling strong. Here is a list of 5 ultimate, off-road SUVs of 2016:

PaxPower Ford F-150 Raptor V-8 and Ford F-150 Raptor EcoBoost Comparison

PaxPower Ford F-150 Raptor V-8 and Ford F-150 Raptor EcoBoost Comparison

Ford F-150 Raptor vs Ford F-150 Raptor (with 300 reasons more)

With Ford introducing the EcoBoost F-150 Raptor, we witnessed the end of an era. The end of the V-8 Raptor era. Some, however, weren’t exactly thrilled with it. At all. People wanted the Raptor V-8. Luckily, thanks to PaxPower, they’ve got it. The Houston-based company took the Ford F-150 V-8, slapped a supercharger to it, installed all OEM 2019 F-150 Raptor parts on it, and called it a deal. It is now up to me to compare the two, although, it seems that PaxPower did not leave me a lot to compare here. The PaxPower Raptor has all the bells and whistles as the real thing - only with far more power and better performance.

Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison vs Ford F-150 Raptor

Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison vs Ford F-150 Raptor

Two titans face off for off-roader supremacy!

There are few things in this world as resolutely badass as a hugely capable off-roader pickup truck. These are the machines you want with you when there’s a forest, mountain, or desert between you and your destination. With a go-anywhere attitude and the right stuff to walk the walk, the street-legal off-roader used to be something cobbled together in a shed. Now, you can get one direct from the factory, be it the Colorado ZR2 Bison from Chevrolet, or the F-150 Raptor from Ford.

These purpose-built, highly specialized variants offer tons of good stuff for those who prefer the trail to the street. For example, the Bison was created in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), an aftermarket off-roader company that knows exactly what’s needed when the going gets rough. Then there’s the F-150 Raptor, which Ford developed into a full-blown Baja racer with a license plate. But how do these two stack up against one another? Read on to find out.
