2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock

2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock

A custom throwback special edition that conjures the ‘70s

These days, custom pickup trucks are everywhere, with interested buyers offered a plethora of choices both from the aftermarket and straight from the factory. However, 40 years ago, it was far less common to get a bespoke aesthetic direct from the manufacturer. In that sense, the original Warlock pickup broke the mold, and now Ram is taking the nameplate off the shelf for a fresh special edition iteration of the 1500.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Mild redesign on the outside, new tech on the inside

Launched in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque pioneered the luxury compact SUV market, prompting other premium brands to either join the niche or improve upon existing models. Come 2018, and Land Rover has introduced the second-generation crossover, placing it again high above the competition.

Redesigned on a brand-new platform, the second-gen Evoque ditched its old Ford-sourced engines and adopted JLR’s new four-cylinder diesels. More importantly, almost all drivetrains are now 48-volt mild hybrids, with a plug-in hybrid set to join the lineup in 2019. Land Rover took a rather evolutionary approach to the Evoque’s design inside the out, so it remains familiar. The redesign is more of the facelift variety styling-wise, but everything is new under the shell.

Update 02/12/2019: We’ve updated this review with a bunch of new pictures taken that the 2019 Chicago Auto show. Scroll on down to the gallery below to check them all out!

The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC's Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

Is this the new flashpoint in the pickup truck wars?

The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.

The 2019 Ram 2500 HD Just Got Some Serious Competition In the Form of the 2020 GMC Sierra HD

The battle of the mega-movers just got a whole lot hotter

GMC has revealed the new 2020 Sierra HD, following hot on the heels of the 2019 Ram 2500 HD that dropped at the Detroit Auto Show last week. Big torque, a big stance, and endless capability are the norms here, but how do these two shape up?

Kia Could Leverage the 2020 Telluride with SEMA-Inspired Accessories but it Could Go a Step Further

Kia Could Leverage the 2020 Telluride with SEMA-Inspired Accessories but it Could Go a Step Further

Wonder why automakers did not think of this before?

Kia brought its flagship SUV, the Telluride, at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this week. The production model of the SUV did not grab a lot of attention; perhaps because we had already seen it at the New York Fashion Week and SEMA fitted with a cacophony of off-road accessories. However, what actually raised our eyebrows is that Kia is actually planning to offer something on similar lines as an off-road-ready variant itself.

Why Does the Side Cargo Box on the 2020 Ram 2500 HD Have an Emergency Exit Latch? Who The Hell Would Get Stuck in There?

Why Does the Side Cargo Box on the 2020 Ram 2500 HD Have an Emergency Exit Latch? Who The Hell Would Get Stuck in There?

It’s not a trunk as such but a baby could still probably fit inside

The new Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty comes packed with cutting-edge tech and can tow more than its Ford and Chevy rivals. It also comes with two storage spaces on either side of the cargo bed. It’s not weird that you can lock these storage compartments up but what is weird is that they feature an emergency latch so Dodge thought that somebody could get stuck in there somehow.

Everybody’s been raving about the new Ram HD’s comprehensive offering of onboard safety systems as well as its top-of-the-line Cummins 6.7-liter diesel engine with 1,000 pound-feet of torque on tap. However, for this article, we’ll be looking at two narrow storage compartments placed above the wheels of the new Ram.

Will the Jeep Wagoneer Serve as Home for FCA’s New Inline-Six aka The Tornado?

The new engine is said to be as powerful as the HEMI V-8

Jeep is cooking the rebirth of the Wagoneer in the form of a full-size SUV that should hit the market in 2020. Until then, we hear that the new model might benefit from a mighty inline-six engine that could outmuscle the HEMI V-8 while displacing less to make it attractive for heavily taxed markets such as Europe and Asia

It’s been rumored for quite a while that the Fiat-Chrysler group is pouring resources into a new six-pot engine and the latest reports tell the tale of a compact engine that will be able to fit on a multitude of platforms and models from the automakers that sit at the FCA table.

You can pick from 20 available parts and accessories

The long-anticipated Jeep Gladiator, the company’s first pickup truck in 26 years, made its global debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The most important of which include a two-inch lift kit, spray-in bed liner, and a truck bed storage system.

Mopar has been providing parts and accessories for Chrysler and Fiat cars for decades now, and it also helped Jeep develop quite a few concept vehicles. Naturally, the Gladiator had to be included now that Jeep finally offers a pickup truck. Mopar presented 20 products for the Gladiator in Los Angeles, but more are definitely underway. Let’s have a look at what you can order once the Gladiator goes on sale.

Rivian R1T Flexes Its Muscle With Eye-Popping Towing Capacity

Rivian R1T Flexes Its Muscle With Eye-Popping Towing Capacity

This all-electric pickup can tow with the best ones in the market today

The 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show will play host to a hot number of vehicles. Models like the all-new Porsche 992 911 will get most of the attention, but don’t dismiss a show-stopping piece like the Rivian R1T. The all-electric pickup truck comes to us by way of auto tech company Rivian, which started out in 2009 as a firm that developed products and services related to sustainable transportation. Almost a decade since its inception, Rivian finally had something to show for its decade-long plan to introduce an all-electric pickup to the market. Sure, the R1T is new to the all-electric vehicle scene, but it’s making up for lost time with an impressive array of features, none more surprising than a towing capacity that would put a lot of today’s incumbent pickups to shame.

The Best Full-Size Pickups Ranked from Last to First

You can’t go wrong with any of these models, but you can hit the jackpot if you pick the right one that suits your lifestyle

The best full-sized pickups in the market are often those that give you the best of a lot of worlds. It’s not enough for a pickup to look good or boast a luxurious interior. It’s not even enough to have the most powerful engine. A good pickup has all of those things to go with impressive handling and driving qualities, as well as towing and hauling capabilities. Like the image the segment presents as do-it-all vehicles, a good pickup has to, quite literally, do it all. That said, not every pickup can do it as well as some of its contemporaries. There are those that excel in a few things but don’t much up as well in other respects. Then there are those that not only excel at one thing; they excel at everything. On that end, we’ve made a list of the best full-sized pickups in the market today, ranked from last to first.

Wallpaper of the Day: K5 Chevy Blazer Restomod by RingBrothers

Wallpaper of the Day: K5 Chevy Blazer Restomod by RingBrothers

It doesn’t get better than this!

We don’t usually feature tuner vehicles in our wallpaper of the day series. In fact, we’ve been kind of lazy with our wallpaper of the day series, haven’t we? Well, either way, that’s without consequence at this point. The point is that today, we’re featuring a tuner car or, to be more specific, a restomod. It’s a restomod by none other than RingBrothers, and it’s the best off-road restomod that we’ve ever laid eyes on. It looks like a stock K5 Blazer from a distance, but once you get up close, you’ll see the RingBrothers put in some serious work here. It has custom running boards and side panels, and it has even been lifted by an entire inch to make room for the 17-inch wheels. The interior is wrapped in a subtle leather and under the hood sits a GM-sourced, LS3 crate engine that’s good for 430 ponies. In the end, this thing is downright beautiful, and it reminds us of what SUVs used to be. If you want to know more about the RingBrothers K5 restomod, check out our full review. Otherwise, look down to grab our favorite wallpaper or browse through a rather generous selection that are all available for free download.
