Hope for the Cybertruck Restored as Image of Young Elon Musk Replacing a Window Surfaces on Twitter
They say life comes as a full circle; and it did for Elon Musk and his glass shattering saga. Elon Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, tweeted a picture from her son’s younger days where he’s seen replacing a window in his old BMW.
This tweet caught a lot of attention and people couldn’t stop asking him questions about it. Now that we know Elon has experience in fixing broken glasses, I guess we can expect him to fix the Cybertruck’s “supposedly armored glass” with ease. Funny how things turn out, right?
Elon Musk Says No to an Electric Motorcycle, but That Doesn’t Mean a Cyberbike Is Out of the Question
If you watched the Tesla Cybertruck’s launch then you remember that the ATV brought onto the stage at the end of the unveil received a rousing round of applause. The ATV was much talked about even later on and people just couldn’t get over that beautiful beast. Luckily, Musk finally confirmed that it will be available as an option with the Cybertruck. But now Tesla’s main man says that we might get a Tesla-made two-wheeler as well! And while he’s not considering a motorbike, an electric dirt bike is a possibility.
Watch Four Off-Road Beasts Go Up Against Each Other in a Drag Fest
It’s fun to see off-roaders climb rocks and maneuver through treacherous paths with utmost ease. However, they can be scary when they are let loose with a heavy foot. In this video, we see four accomplished off-roaders go against each other, thanks to Carwow.
The vehicles in question are the likes of Land Rover Discovery, Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Wrangler, and Volkswagen Amarok. The Carwow folks decided to race these beasts in a straight-line dash to see who bests the others. Who do you think would win?
The Hennessey Maximus Jeep Gladiator Drops a Ton of Power Between the Engine and the Wheels: Video
Do you remember the Maximus 1000? Hennessey injected the Jeep Gladiator with steroids and renamed it the Maximus 1000 earlier this year. Although it looks absolutely stunning in black, the truck’s biggest change was under the hood where the tuner decided to swap the stock Pentastar engine with a Hellcat mill.
The engine was then further tuned to churn out 1,000 horsepower and now Hennessey has released a video of the Maximus doing a dyno run. Although you’d expect it to rev in all its glory, the Maximus actually didn’t make a 1,000 horses. It was a lot less, and honestly, a tad bit disappointing.
2020 Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport
The insane and utterly mental 755-horsepower Shelby Super Snake F-150 Concept Truck is headed to production. Long associated with the Ford Mustang, the Shelby Super Snake moniker makes its way to the mighty F-150 truck for the very first time. The stunning concept only made its debut last month at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show, but after receiving incredible demand from enthusiasts, the media, and Shelby dealerships, the concept quickly turned into a limited edition production model. Only 250 units of the Shelby F1-50 Super Snake Sport will be built, each with a price that starts between $93,000 to $95,000.
2020 Roush F-150

The Ford specialist is at it again with a new kit developed specifically for the Blue Oval’s best-selling pickup, the Ford F-150. The Roush package is available on either the F-150 XLT or F-150 Lariat trims.

Video - Can The Mercedes X-Class Win a Tug-O-War Battle With the Toyota Hilux and Isuzu D-Max?
Pickup tug-of-war battles have become the spectacles these days. Just about everybody’s doing some form of it, and yes, this video is no different. This tug-of-war battle comes to us by way of Carwow, which decided to pit a Mercedes X-Class against a pair of Japanese trucks: the Isuzu D-Max and the Toyota Hilux. As with most tug-of-war scraps, the objective of this competition is to pull the other truck into your side of the set cone. Whichever pickup manages to carry out this goal wins. We’re not going to divulge the winner here because, well, where’s the fun in that?
This Ford Mustang Mach-E Pickup Rendering Could be a Perfect Electric Ranger Raptor
Ford’s decision to use the “Mustang” name on the Mach-E electric crossover opened a lot of doors, some of which Ford may or may not want to be opened. One of these doors leads to a long and window road riddled with speculation about Ford’s future plans for the “Mustang” name. Is the Mustang Mach-E a one-time deal that Ford did to generate interest in the electric crossover by having it carry the “Mustang” name? On the flip side, does Ford have plans to use the iconic nameplate on other non-muscle car models? Rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita wondered the same thing, but instead of waiting for an answer, he decided to create a rendering on one possible non-muscle car model that could use the “Mustang” nameplate in the future. Meet the Ford Mustang Mach-E Truck.
Tesla Just Broke Its Promise on Cybertruck Production and We’re Not Surprised One Bit
When Tesla launced the Cybertruck, we were promsied that the two cheaper versions – the single motor, $39,900 model and the dual-motor $49,900 model – would go into prodution in late 2021 while the more expensive tri-motor model with the Tesla Plaid drivetrain would arrive to the production line in late 2022. Now, Tesla has doubled back on its word and will delay the cheapest model until late 2021 so that the more expensive tri-motor Plaid model will enter production earlier.
2019 Ford F-150 Black Ops Edition
Much of the pickup world’s attention has been on the Tesla Cybertruck these days, but before anyone starts to forget, the Ford F-150 remains the king of all trucks. It’s the standard-bearer in the segment, a distinction it has it more than earned. The F-150 also carries the distinction of being one of the most customizable trucks in the segment. It’s versatile enough that it can even spawn special edition models, one of which comes to us by way of Ford’s relationship with Indiana-based Tuscany Motor Company. The two companies are responsible for the F-150 Black Ops trucks, a special edition set that pays tribute to the armed forces of the United States. It just so happens that a Ford dealership, Brown Lee Ford, has an F-150 Black Ops, so if you’re looking for a special edition F-150 with serious upgrades throughout, we might just have found the one for you. The 2019 Ford F-150 Black Ops is priced at $88,525.
A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger
The Tesla Cybertruck is arguably the most shocking car design in recent decades. Not only wedge-shaped bodies have gone out of fashion in the early 1990s, but no other carmaker thought about this shape as a design that could bring notable benefits in the aerodynamic and rigidity departments... of a pickup truck.
Tesla did, and while many car enthusiasts hate the Cybertruck’s looks, it could actually get weirder than that. And this rendering from Jonsibal proves just that.
The 2020 Sierra AT4 Comes With Stronger Off-Road Specs, But Can It Beat The Ram Power Wagon In Its Own Yard?
The Ram Power Wagon has proved its mettle as the ultimate off-road truck many times before. However, there’s another contender – an unlikely one, too - that has the potential to give it a run for its money: meet the GMC Sierra AT4.
The GMC Sierra, despite its intimidating size and structure, is known for its luxuriousness and towing prowess. But the folks at TFL decided to pit the two against each other to see how the underdog performs out of its comfort zone. Do you think the Sierra AT4 can take down the Ram Power Wagon?
Was Tesla’s Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk’s Own World?
The launch event of the Tesla Cybertruck began with a quick slideshow where images of well-known trucks from the past five decades rolled on the screen as Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about a need for change and evolution. The Cybertruck, as a result, was always going to be daring in more ways than one but has Tesla gone too far? Is this really what truck buyers have in mind when thinking about switching from a gas-guzzling truck to an electric one? Do they even want to switch to an electric truck at all?
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.
Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch
Remember the tug-of-war rematch challenge that Ford laid out to Tesla on Twitter? Yeah, well, that’s gone for now. Apparently, the tweet from the Ford X’s Vice President Sundeep Madra was just a tongue-in-cheek statement and not a challenge per se.
Just when it looked like we’ll have an “apples to apples” face-off, Ford has chickened out. Oh boy! Mr. Madra, what have you done?
