A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

Would you take this monster to the race track?

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 2020 Sierra AT4 Comes With Stronger Off-Road Specs, But Can It Beat The Ram Power Wagon In Its Own Yard?

Ram Power Wagon has a worthy competitor in the GMC Sierra AT4

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?

Most Powerful Cars and SUVs Under $30,000 in 2019

Most Powerful Cars and SUVs Under $30,000 in 2019

You can have an all-new vehicle with 395 horsepower for $30,000

These are the most powerful vehicles under $30,000. Some of them offer an insane amount of raw power for the money, and we can thank the good ol’ capitalism and the competitive market for that.

Horsepower wars realistically started when the second car was invented, and, whether you like it or not, horsepower sells. This list, thankfully, shows that we live in a time when you can get the most bang for your buck, all thanks to your unsatiated need for speed and raw power. To give you a glimpse of the sheer horsepower insanity behind the sub-$30k price cap, let me tell you that you can have a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado with 310 horsepower for less than that. If you, however, like the appeal of a muscle car, then the Ford Mustang EcoBoost with 350 pound-feet of torque and 310 horsepower could soothe your need for power.

Despite the incredible power/price ratio of 300+ horsepower for less than $30,000, this is not the most you can get for your money, as you’re about to find out.

Was Tesla's Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk's Own World?

Was Tesla’s Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk’s Own World?

With all the talk going on about the Tesla pickup truck, we wonder if it can actually work out there in the wild

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?

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

And here I was, rooting for the Blue Oval to whoop the Cybertruck’s boxy ass!

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?

Mazda Is Looking To Electrify the Next-Gen MX-5 Miata, But It’s not As Simple as it Sounds

Weight, handling, power output, and emissions all come into play here

Mazda is mulling over whether or not the next-gen MX-5 Miata should move into the electrification segment, something that could actually put it in line with the next-gen Porsche 718 should everything play out the right way. The important thing is that, no matter what, the next-gen MX-5 will remain light, compact, and agile, but how that’s going to happen is a mystery that Mazda still has to solve.

BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter

BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter

Keep it classy BMW, keep it classy

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.

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Although it got all the hype, Tesla was bound to be exposed sooner or later

When Tesla announced the 300,000-pound towing capacity for the Cybertruck, Ford was quick to release a video of its F-150 electric prototype that pulled 1.25 million pounds. Instead of immediately replying to this, Tesla took its own sweet time to throw a punch at Ford. In turn, Tesla tied the Cybertruck’s ass to a Ford-150’s with a rope and engaged in a good old fashioned tug-o-war challenge.

You must’ve seen the video; the Cybertruck pulls the F-150 with utmost ease, even on an inclined surface. However, this was as gimmicky as it could get. Famous YouTube channel Engineering Explained has put out a video explaining why this battle made no sense and it is much simpler than the “two-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive argument.”

The Jaguar F-Type Launches on December 2, But What Does Hot Wheels Have to Do With It?

The Jaguar F-Type Launches on December 2, But What Does Hot Wheels Have to Do With It?

Expect the facelifted F-Type to get its paws dirty during its debut

The new Jaguar F-Type is nearing its début, and Jaguar was kind enough to drop a six-second teaser of the facelifted F-Type, complete with a hint of involvement from Hot Wheels. The official unveiling takes place on December 2, and while the specific details on what’s going to happen remain unclear, it does look like Jaguar wants us to think that Hot Wheels will be prominently involved in it. Is it possible that the new F-Type will perform some kind of stunt in its own début? It’s not unchartered territory considering the relationship history between Jaguar and Hot Wheels.

2020 Subaru BRZ Special Edition

2020 Subaru BRZ Special Edition

Is this BRZ mule a go-faster prototype, a tester for the next-gen’s 2.4-liter drivetrain, or a simple facelift?

Back in June of 2019, we received confirmation that a next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ were in the works Then, in September, we learned that the new BRZ and 86 twins may take a re-tuned version of the Subaru Ascent’s 2.4-liter Flat-Four as their main source of motivation. Fast forward to the end of October 2019, and here we are looking at a random Subaru BRZ prototype undergoing the rigors of testing on none other than the Nurburgring. This begs the question of what Subaru has under its sleeve. Right away, I’m here to tell you that it’s not the next-gen BRZ, as that’s still at least a couple of years away. Based on the camo, this appears to be a hotter version of the BRZ, one that could be offered as a special edition or maybe even as a new range-topping model to hold us off until the next-gen BRZ arrives. Even better yet, we think this prototype is being pushed around the track by the Ascent’s 2.4-liter flat-four. After all, what better way to test the reception of a sport-tuned engine than to unleash it in a go-faster version of the current model.

Update 11/28/2019:The special edition Subaru BRZ that’s planned to debut sometime in 2020 was spotted testing on the Nurburgring being benchmarked against the Alpine A110 of all things. Check out the new images and learn more in our Spy Shots section below!

2020 Ducati Panigale V4

Ducati Improves What Was Already Its Best-Selling Bike In The World

The MY19 Panigale V4 was Ducati’s best-selling bike worldwide, and the factory looks to build on that success through a host of improvements ahead of the 2020 season. Ducati’s engineers struck a balance by increasing rideability and potentially laptimes to deliver more of what made the previous generation such a hit. Top-shelf electronics and a 200-plus horsepower engine complete the package, and it all comes wrapped in low-drag, windtunnel-tested bodywork for both performance and curb appeal.

The Arrival of the Cybertruck Signals Tesla’s Shift to Technology Over New Models

Now it’s probably time to focus more on that self-driving tech

Musk recently announced that the Cybertruck will be its last new model for the time being and it plans to focus more on future technologies. This makes sense because Tesla already has a strong lineup without a single dead product in it. It also has a lot of technologies that are still vaguely in their beta phase and several models that it actually has to bring to market (Tesla Roadster, Tesla Semi, Model Y, and now, the Cybertruck.) So, it looks like Tesla will now be focused on its exiting productions and technology over the next few years. If that’s the case, will the full self-driving tech finally be developed and deployed in all its vehicles by the end of 2020?

2021 Tesla Cybertruck

2021 Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla is entering the pickup truck game with a revolutionary hauler

The 2021 Cybertruck is the first pickup truck built by Tesla and is the oddest-looking pickup truck to ever hit the market. Unveiled at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2022 Cybertruck will go into production in 2021. As one of the first production electric trucks, the Cybertruck is also one of the most advanced utility vehicles ever built. Much like it did with the Model X and Model 3, Tesla didn’t unveil a lot of details during the launch event, so the 2021 Cybertruck still hides mysteries. But let’s have a closer look at what we already know about it in the review below.

Here's What We've Learned Since the Launch of the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck

Here’s What We’ve Learned Since the Launch of the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck

A lot has happened since Musk brought that ‘out of the box’ thing on stage

The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced. The launch is done and dusted but people still can’t stop talking about it. The biggest reason for this is the “apparent” glass shattering fail that may or may not have been a blunder on stage. Nevertheless, the internet is filled with memes about the truck for a whole lot of other reasons and the only one benefitting from this is Tesla – that’s called free publicity. Here’s a list of all the things we’ve learned since the launch of the Cybertruck - the most-anticipated vehicle in a long time.

Elon Musk Really Expects Us To Believe His Excuse for Why the Tesla Cybertruck's Windows Broke

Elon Musk Really Expects Us To Believe His Excuse for Why the Tesla Cybertruck’s Windows Broke

It sounds like an excuse, but you can never really tell with Elon Musk

The unveiling of the Tesla Cybertruck came with loads of surprises, including the truck’s controversial looks, impressive performance capabilities, and the late-game arrival of the Cyberquad ATV. But none of these moments compared to the moment when lead designer Franz von Holzhausen smashed two of the Cybertruck’s “armor glass” windows with a metal ball.

The incident spurred Elon Musk’s now-famous expletive-laden reaction, and days after the embarrassing on-air episode, Musk has come out and explained why the armor glass windows cracked when it was hit with the metal ball. You can believe Musk’s explanation or not, but it does sound like someone who’s trying to come up with an excuse to save some face.

Ford Hopes That Fake V-8 Engine Noise Will Help You Forget that the Mach-E Isn't Really a Mustang

Ford Hopes That Fake V-8 Engine Noise Will Help You Forget that the Mach-E Isn’t Really a Mustang

It’s not the real thing, but Ford hopes that you don’t care enough to know the difference

The Ford Mustang Mach-E proudly carries the nameplate of the iconic muscle car, but as an electric crossover, the Mach-E noticeably lacks the aggressive exhaust note that has come to define the Mustang name. Ford knows this, and instead of letting the Mach-E sound like a wispy electric car, the Blue Oval decided to inject an audible soundtrack that would convey the typical sounds of power and performance without compromising the crossover’s all-electric persona. The result is a sound that imitates an internal combustion engine without one actually being there.

Yamaha's new mid-weight Ténéré 700 ADV will come as the 2021 model lineup

Yamaha’s new mid-weight Ténéré 700 ADV will come as the 2021 model lineup

It will cost an MSRP of $9,999, and will be available as early as the summers of 2020

Yamaha had showcased its mid-weight adventure concept last year and called it the ‘T7 concept’. It was then we knew that the Japanese guys are coming up with a winner in the adventure class for the next year. Then, the brand showcased the ’Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid’ at last year’s EICMA, but for all our dismay, it was still a prototype since they had yet to turn a few knobs more.

Now though, Yamaha has officially confirmed that the Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring motorcycle will be coming to our shores as a 2021 model lineup, but will be hitting the stateside dealers in early summer of 2020. The 700 will be available in the Ceramic Ice, Matte Black, and Intensity White color schemes, with all three models carrying an MSRP of $9,999.
