This Throw Down Between the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX Is What 2020 Has Been Missing
Until the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX came out, Ford F-150 Raptor was the only full-size off-road truck that seemed to have made an impact in the market. The TRX was coined as the Raptor killer early on, but Ram took everything up a notch, leaving the F-150 Raptor unscathed to a large extent. However, we’ve been waiting to see these two go up against each other for the longest time, and thanks to TFL, it has become a reality.
The folks at the publication pit the Raptor and the TRX in a drag race wherein the latter won comfortably, but now they face each other on even grounds; or in this case, uneven grounds. Do you think the Ram 1500 TRX can down the Ford F-150 Raptor on beaten paths?
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Powertrain
Pickup trucks play a very important part of the American automotive culture. Companies like Ford, Chevrolet, and Ram have capitalized on it and offer their products in various combinations. Ford and Chevrolet offer six engine options each and their spread clashes with each other, but while maintaining exclusivity over the other. For instance, the Ford F-150 is offered with a hybrid engine, but the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 isn’t. The Silverado is offered with three transmissions, but the F-150 only with one. All-in-all, it boils down to your requirement at the end of the day and what fits your bill the best.
We’ve compiled a list of all the engine options offered on the 2021 models of the F-150 and the Silverado, and what trim levels they are offered on.
GM Just Showed How Cool the Hummer EV Could Have Been
There’s been so much buzz surrounding the Hummer’s resurgence since the beginning of this year. Right from the Super Bowl advertisements to the delay in launch. Finally, last month, GMC launched the Hummer EV in all its glory.

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

2021 Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension
The 2021 SEMA Auto Show is going the virtual route because of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a bummer for those who were looking forward to their annual pilgrimage to Sin City, but automakers have long adapted to the situation. Instead of attending auto shows like SEMA to unveil their newest creations, automakers have now gone digital, showcasing their latest offerings online.
Ford is one of those companies, and tonight, the Blue Oval is hosting “Ford Auto Nights,” a special webcast where the automaker plans to unveil its 2021 SEMA Auto Show lineup. That lineup includes the F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension, a project truck that Ford created in partnership with BDS Suspension to showcase the automaker’s all-new Pro Power Onboard mobile power generator.
There’s Something So Mesmerizing About Watching This Wooden Ford Range Raptor Come to Life
The Ford Ranger Raptor is the badass brother of the log-crawling mid-size pickup truck that is the Ranger. The deal with each one of Ford’s Raptors is that they can still successfully face rough terrains but do so with an added dose of cool. Big tires, a wider body, and more ground clearance complete the image of a truck that few will mess with, even if it’s all been rendered in wood which is the material of choice in the case of this scaled-down replica of the Ranger Raptor.

The 2021 Ford F-150 came with a whole lot of new things, like a hybrid mill, 12-inch touchscreen system, and a Pro Power Onboard Generator, amongst other things. One other impressive feature are the Max Recline Seats.
These are seats that essentially flip down almost 180 degrees so you can take a nap on work sites. Instead of just having the existing seats to fold flat, Ford worked from scratch to make sure you don’t end up with sprains and aches if you decide to have a siesta.

2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition
When GMC unveiled the 2021 Canyon AT4 back in January, speculation started that a special edition model was already in the works. It probably took longer than GMC expected — blame the COVID-19 pandemic for that — but 10 months after the Canyon AT4’s arrival, the special edition model, dubbed the Off-Road Performance Edition, is finally here.
As expected, the Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition packs plenty of extra goodies, most of which are of the functional sort.
