Electric Truck Drag Showdown: Can The GMC Hummer Beat The Rivian R1T?

The new GMC Hummer and Rivian R1T prove how insanely quick EV trucks are; Tesla Model X Plaid joins the fun as an honorary guest

Throttle House likes to pit some of the latest vehicles against one another, in a series of tests. This usually involves a drag race and this time is no exception. Moreover, many have been waiting to see, which of these new electric pick-up trucks is quicker in a straight line. The GMC Hummer or the Rivian R1T? You would think there’s not a single Tesla in sight, but a Model X Plaid decides to join the fun. Will it school the newcomers?

This Ford F-250 Pickup Stretches Its Legs On An Unrestricted German Autobahn With No Speed Limits

This Ford F-250 Pickup Stretches Its Legs On An Unrestricted German Autobahn With No Speed Limits

Not that the Super Duty was ever built for speed, but just in case you were curious as to what this work truck can do at the limit on a public highway, here’s your answer

In their latest video, AutoTopNL took a Ford F-250 Super Duty to its top speed on an unrestricted section of Autobahn in Germany. Now, this isn’t the first time that a pickup has appeared on their channel.

The F-150 Raptor and the Ranger Raptor have also been previously featured. However, only the RAM 1500 had been previously let loose on the Autobahn, until now. Let’s see how the Super Duty gets to its top speed.

Pickup Trucks: Can Audi Succeed Where Mercedes Failed?

Pickup Trucks: Can Audi Succeed Where Mercedes Failed?

What would you think about a pickup truck with an Audi badge plastered across the tailgate?

The idea of a luxury-level truck isn’t anything new. Some of the range-topping models from the Ford F-Series and the Chevy Silverado range certainly hit close to that border. Mercedes even tried to give it a go with the X-Class, but the approach was super lazy (it was basically a Nissan Navara with Mercedes emblems). Now, it looks like Audi is at least considering the idea of dipping its toes into the pool. Could it be that Audi doesn’t only want to pick up were Mercedes failed but actually compete with higher-range models of the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux? Well, this isn’t just some random rumor, and the concept is coming from someone with a lot of influence within the walls of Audi.

Ford Might Have Some Big Plans For The ‘Raptor' Brand In The Coming Years

Ford Might Have Some Big Plans For The ‘Raptor’ Brand In The Coming Years

Ford’s priority in 2022 and the coming years seems to be to elevate the Raptor Brand and not electrification

While the onus will be on electrification moving forward, there are a lot of other moving parts that need to work along in tandem for automakers to ensure a smooth transition. Ford has taken the first big step – probably the biggest step – of electrifying the most product in its lineup, the Ford F-150. With that out of the way, the automaker can now switch its focus on something completely different altogether this year – grow the Raptor brand even more.

If you pick up all the pieces the company has been dropping in the last 1-1.5 years, you’ll realize that it is working on building the Raptor brand. We have the F-150 Raptor R coming, the Bronco Raptor is already here, and even the Ranger Raptor has finally crossed the forbidden door and come to the States and Canada. Will Ford make ‘Raptor’ a standalone brand like the Mustang and the Bronco?

Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"

Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"

Hoonigan’s 2JZ-powered Ford F-150 "Frightening" from Fast & Furious races a nasty-sounding Big Block Chevy K5; headphone users, beware!

To say Hoonigan’s drag races are epic is an understatement. For a while, we have been seeing some of the most insane showdowns with some of the weirdest builds ever, but this one takes things even further. It may look like a classic Ford versus Chevrolet duel, but there’s a twist. Hoongan’s very own homage to the Fast & Furious, Ford F-150 Lightning, driven by Paul Walker goes up against an all-American, insanely loud Chevy K5 Jimmy Big Block V-8.

This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed

This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed

A lowered 1956 Chevy 3100 with a 383 stroker V-8 is not your typical work truck

Custom cars are awesome, but what’s even crazier is custom pick-up trucks, especially when they are from the 1950s. A perfect example of that is this 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Sidestep, built by “Customs by Lopez”. While the Chevy 3100 was part of the Chevy Task Force, also known as the “Blue Chip Series” in GMC dealerships, it started out as a humble, but rugged work truck. However, it has been transformed into a mean, rubber-burning machine.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor

Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor

The new Ranger Raptor is upgraded in every sense, and the big news is that it will be coming to the U.S. and Canada!

Ford unveiled the next-gen Ranger Raptor in February 2022, and it has since been the talk of the town. While it is a huge improvement over the outgoing model, the highlight is that it will be coming to the U.S. and Canada – the two countries where the Ranger Raptor was forbidden fruit for the longest time. It looks like Ford finally came to a realization that there is a demand for the off-road mid-size beast in these countries.

Now that we know it is coming here, let’s talk about the truck itself. Ford finally moved it to a new platform after basing it on the T6 architecture for 11 years. The new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor also comes with an upgraded suspension setup, updated exterior aesthetics and interior features, and even features a V-6 engine under the hood. There are a lot of other changes as well, and here’s everything you need to know about the next-gen 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor:

Kia Plots Two Electric Pickup Trucks to Take on the Big Boys

Kia Plots Two Electric Pickup Trucks to Take on the Big Boys

It’s not going to happen until roughly 2027, but Kia is really going to get into the electric pickup market

Hyundai and Genesis are planning to launch a total of 17 EVs between both companies by the end of the decade, so it should be little surprise that Kia is also increasing its efforts – they are all related, after all. There’s an oddity to this announcement, though, as Kia is also planning to launch not one, but two zero-emission electric pickup trucks.

If These Sketches Are Anything To Go By, Then The Ram 1500 BEV Might Be The Most Beautiful Looking Truck!

Ram put out some teasers to assure us it hasn’t forgotten about the electric 1500 pickup truck

The electric pickup truck market is booming. You’ve got the GMC Hummer EV, the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, and many other new players. Even the pioneers of the current generation like Ford and Chevy have thrown in their hats and showcased what the truck will look like. But, one big name that’s missing is Ram. The company officially announced the electric Ram 1500 sometime mid-last year. Fast forward to the present day, we have got another set of teasers. Yeah, just teasers; not a glimpse at the real deal.

But, all that is forgiven at the moment because we are in awe of how stunning the Ram 1500 EV could turn out to be. What we see are still sketches, but if Ram can translate it into the production version without a whole lot of changes, it might be the best-looking truck on the market when it comes out.
