The New 2021 Ford F-150 Could Very Well Look Like This
Ford is hard at work to bring the new 2021 F-150 to the right shape for a launch and while details are scarce and spyshots even scarcer, a newly surfaced set of digital renderings could shed some light on the truck’s appearance for each one of its iterations, including the Raptor and the all-electric F-150.
In all fairness, Ford won’t go overboard with altering the F-150’s design cues so what we’ll most likely get could be deemed an evolution rather than a revolution. However, these changes will be easy to spot since this is a new generation we’re talking and not a mere run-of-the-mill nip and tuck for the F-150.
Is There a Case For a Tesla Cybertruck Police Car?
We don’t have to tell you just how polarizing the Cybertruck has been in the wake of its controversial unveil back in November 2019. But the wave it sent to all online mediums has been of an unseen magnitude and that’s the best marketing strategy Tesla could ever wish for.
As a result, people came up with wicked renderings and some even started out building their own version of the Cybertruck. In this article, however, we’re going to be looking at whether a police Tesla Cybertruck would make sense in real life, given that some U.S. police departments are already acquiring and modifying Tesla Model 3s for patrol and other duties and we’ve also caught word of interest in the Cybertruck too, albeit from more exotic parts of the world.

You Won’t Believe What Lurks Under the Hood of This Toyota Hilux
Well, here’s a Mercedes X-Class pickup truck with an older 6.2-liter Mercedes-AMG mill plonked under the hood. Oh, wait, I’m sorry. It’s a Toyota Hilux with an AMG engine. I wonder why I thought the X-Class pickup truck with an AMG engine would’ve been a good idea. Duh! The X-Class was better off as a rich man’s Nissan Navara with the same interior and drivetrain, right? Anyway, here’s one genius who plonked the previous-gen 6.2-liter AMG mill under the hood of his Toyota Hilux. The result? A sleeper truck that will scare the living daylight out of you with one press of the throttle.
New 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Got Us Dreaming
We’re expecting a new-generation Ford F-150 pickup truck to make a debut this year as a 2021 model, after 2019 taught us that FoMoCo sent a full fleet of pre-production prototypes out in the wild for testing purposes.
While the test mules didn’t exactly throw a lot of light onto the new F-150 topic, we spotted a new mesh grille design with a single cross-bar splitting it in half horizontally. There’s also talk about a Raptor-badged 2021 F-150 and it’s this one that led to one particular pixel manipulator coming up with his vision of an incoming F-150 Raptor.
The 2020 Land Rover Defender Takes a Bashing In James Bond No Time To Die Rehearsals
We knew for some time that the new 2020 Land Rover Defender will play a big role in the upcoming No Time to Die 007 movie, but the only proof we had was an all-black prototype photographed on the set.
This time around, Land Rover provides a glimpse into what we should expect from the movie when it comes to the Defender’s part, and boy, you won’t be disappointed, we can tell you that much.
This New 2021 GMC Hummer EV Rendering Looks Just About Right
The Hummer’s transition from extinct gas-guzzler to reborn electric vehicle, albeit in pickup truck shape, has taken the car world by storm. And that’s an understatement. GMC cleverly released the right amount of specs to keep people on their toes and stir the online medium, yet nobody knows what the GMC Hummer EV will look like.
GMC’s cryptic picture of the truck’s front end doesn’t reveal much but it was all some needed to create a digital interpretation of what the Hummer EV might be.
2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20
It won’t be wrong to say that the Jeep Wrangler is a cult of sorts when it comes to customizing a vehicle. The Wrangler is one of the most customizable vehicles not just with aftermarket accessories, but also thanks to the rich directory of the in-house guide, Mopar.
The Wrangler comes with so many optional accessories and packages that it might leave you scratching your head. To help you with this conundrum, Jeep decided to customize the Wrangler in-house with accessories and call it the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20. It was showcased at the Chicago Auto Show and it did grab a fair bit of attention. Looks pretty sweet, doesn’t it?
Bill Murray’s Super Bowl Commercial With the Jeep Gladiator Was Arguably The Best One This Year
Amongst the plethora of car commercials that aired during the Super Bowl, the Jeep Gladiator ad touched our hearts the most. The commercial saw Bill Murray step into the shoes of Phil Connor, the disgruntled weatherman from the 1993 movie Groundhog Day. In the movie, Phil finds himself stuck in a time loop wherein he relives the Groundhog Day over and over again. Jeep recreated this scene by filming with few of the original cast at the same locations, while subtly putting its Gladiator into the mix.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Realtree Edition
Chevrolet has brought back the Realtree Edition on the Silverado 1500 after a five-year hiatus. Based on the Custom Trail Boss, Chevy has collaborated with Realtree, a leading camouflage brand, once again after five years to come up with the Silverado 1500 Realtree Edition. The differences in this edition are purely aesthetic. The truck comes with camouflage graphics on the sides of the truck bed, hood, and inside the cabin.
Video: Would You Drive This Six-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler in the U.S.?
When you talk about a beast on six wheels, the sight of Richard Hammond driving a G63 on the sand dunes around Dubai comes to mind. But here’s one other example, and perhaps, a poor man’s Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6.
A 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been converted from an SUV to a pickup truck, and from a four-wheel config to a six-wheel one. YouTuber Doug DeMuro got his hands on it and here’s what it is all about.
Tesla Makes A Bulletproof T-Shirt to Celebrate the Glass-Shattering Incident
The Cybertruck’s glass-shattering saga will remain fresh in our minds for a very long time. It’s not because of what happened on stage, but because Musk and his team don’t want us to forget.
Tesla is channeling all the hype it has received through memes and internet jokes into merchandise sales. On that note, the company is launching a new T-shirt featuring the incident, along with other Cybertruck-themed apparels and accessories. This is modern marketing 101 right here. The only downside - it’ll set you back by $45.
Watch out, Bollinger: GM is Bringing Back the Hummer as an Electric Car
Rumors about an all-electric version of the Hummer have been soaring over the internet for a while, but it looks like they will finally come to fruition thanks to GM.

What If the New Ford Bronco Looked Like This?
2020 is the year that will finally give us the new Ford Bronco, after countless rumors and information leaks that preceded Ford’s decision to revive the moniker it killed in 1996.
Renderings of the 2020 Ford Bronco have been popping up on the internets with regularity, but none of them match the accuracy of a particular set concocted and improved by Bronco6g’s member TopRecon.
2019 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato
The 2019 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is an experimental concept car that the Italian firm launched in June 2019. As the name suggests, the Sterrato is based on the 2019 Huracan supercar, but unlike standard sibling it includes off-road-specific features and technology from the Urus SUV. Described as a "super sportscar for challenging environments," the Huracan Sterrato also pays tribute to similar experimental vehicles from Lamborghini’s storied past.
The 2019 Huracan Sterrato may be an usual vehicle for a company like Lamborghini, but it’s not the first of its kind. Back in the 1970s, test driver Bob Wallace modified several production Lamborghini’s to create unique performance cars. Two of them, the Jarama Rally (1973) and Urraco Rally (1974), featured off-road-specific suspensions and upgrades designed for rally racing. Almost 50 years later and Lamborghini is revisiting its off-road supercar legacy with the 2019 Huracan Sterrato.
The Suzuki Jimny Squares Off With the Mercedes G-Class in an Epic Off-Road Challenge
The Suzuki Jimny has been considered as the common man’s Mercedes G-Class for a very long time now. Other than the boxy looks and off-road abilities, these two cars are completely different from each other.
While the G-Class is a legend in its own right, the little Japanese SUV has been winning hearts all over the world for its quirky, almost cute looks. Although a lot of parallels are drawn between the two, have you ever thought about what it would be like to pit them against each other? The guys at Motor1 Italia decided to take up the challenge and see who the off-road king really is.
Watch The Mercedes-AMG G63 Go Up Against The Range Rover Sport SVR in a Tug-of-War Battle
It’s time to move on from the Cybertruck versus Ford F-150 tug-of-war duel. Unlike that war with an anti-climax, here’s one that will actually give you a closure.
The folks at Carwow brought along two unlikely superior SUVs in a battle of tug-of-war to determine who is tougher one. One on side, we have the iconic Mercedes-AMG G-Wagen, and on the other side there’s the Range Rover Sport SVR. While the latter is a tough-looking new breed, does it have what it takes to trump Mercedes-Benz’s raw-power, rich-heritage SUV?
Lego’s Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic
Whether we like it or not, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bound to populate our news feeds for longer than we expected. Helped by the now infamous “armour” windows blunder caused by your humble metal ball, the wave of mockery is getting thicker and thicker. Classier, too.
Such an example of a neat trollage came earlier this week from Tesla’s fellow carmaker BMW, as Munich’s social media department saw the window shattering a good opportunity to pile up more exposure for BMW’s bulletproof X5 Protection VR6. And then came Lego.
BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter
We’re back with more Tesla Cybertruck-related news as BMW decided to capture some attention on Twitter and channel it on one of its most spectacular products by throwing some shade at the Cybertruck.
As you know, BMW will sell you, on special request, the so-called X5 Protection VR6, a heavily armoured vehicle packing 530 horsepower and the ability to withstand gunfire coming from an AK-47. This sort of badassery allowed BMW to troll Tesla and Musk for the “armor” widows gaffe that took place during the pickup truck’s live reveal.
Tesla’s Cybertruck Destroys the Ford F-150 in Painful Tug-of-War Battle (Updated)

Tesla Cybertruck Exoskeleton and Design Explained
Elon Musk unveiled the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck today in a presentation that kicked off with how he’s sick and tired of pickup trucks looking the same for over a century. But he didn’t complain without a purpose; the 2021 Cybertruck is actually radically different than mainstream trucks like the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. Tesla found an alternative to the popular body-on-frame layout, but also built the truck from a cold-rolled stainless-steel alloy, a premiere for the truck industry. Both explain the really strange shape of the body, which we will discuss below.
Rivian R1T vs. Tesla Cybertruck, A Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For
Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck, its first properly rugged utility vehicle and first to not follow the ’Model XYZ’ nomenclature, last night during an eye-catching launch event with concert lights aplenty as well as aides dressed as if they came from a Blade Runner casting. But away from all the glitz, we’ve all been asking how the Tesla will compare when pitched against its (potentially) biggest rival, the Rivian R1T? Well, we can finally answer the question.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s Graffiti-Style Font has "Merchandise" Written All Over It
Tesla is not above trying to monetize anything that it thinks will make money. Now that the all-electric Cybertruck has been revealed, you can be sure that the California automaker will find ways to generate supplementary income when opportunities present themselves.
It just so happens that one of those opportunities is already sitting in Tesla’s lap. No, it’s not the Cybertruck itself. It’s not even the Cyberquad. It’s the Cybertruck’s graffiti-style name. If you don’t think Tesla’s not above making money off of a font, wait a few months and check the company’s online shop. You might find a t-shirt with your exact size in it.
