Here's How You Can (MAYBE) Watch the Tesla Cybertruck Live Stream

Here’s How You Can (MAYBE) Watch the Tesla Cybertruck Live Stream

There’s still no official stream, so this may be your best bet

We’ve been told that the reveal of the Tesla Cybertruck will be live-streamed at 11:00 PM EST (8 PM PST) but we’ve yet to see an official stream anywhere on the internet. Musk has refrained from using the official Tesla Youtube channel for live streams, so it probably won’t happen there, and your best bet is to see the official stream on social media or the Tesla homepage, which was the case last time.

However, there are a few independent youtube channels, at least a couple of which claim to actually be at the event. If things fall through, you might be able to get a good first look in the videos below.

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Promises 459 Horsepower and 300-Mile Range, But Not at the Same Time

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Promises 459 Horsepower and 300-Mile Range, But Not at the Same Time

Is Ford’s first EV Pony SUV Really As Good As they Say?

The Mustang has a long and vibrant history, but the future is here, and the Mustang Mach-E is the proverbial looking glass into the future of not only the Mustang name but Ford as a whole. The Mustang Mach-E is the first production electric Mustang, and it’s the first crossover to bear the Mustang name too. It comes with a promise of up to 300 miles in range, up to 459 horsepower, and access to 75-percent of America’s charging infrastructure, but there’s a catch.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition

2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition

Chevy mixes the Heavy Duty name with a heavy duty special edition truck

Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is, in fact, the road-going, street-legal offspring of the Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt concept car shown back in 2016. Only this time, you will be able to actually get one from your Chevy dealership, provided you show enough patience to wait until the fall of 2020 when deliveries are slated to kick off.

Details are scarce for the time being and the 12-month waiting window is certainly far from appealing, but there are plenty of reasons to jump for joy. The Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is based on the Silverado 2500 LTZ, which means that in theory, it should be available with a V-8 engine. The only question is which one, as Chevy is offering a choice of two V-8s for the LTZ: a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter.

The Long, Illustrious History of Jeep Pickup Trucks

The Long, Illustrious History of Jeep Pickup Trucks

Anticipating the modern Gladiator’s debut

It has recently been confirmed that Jeep will unveil a pickup truck version of the JL Wrangler at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Called the Gladiator, according to leaked documents, it will be Jeep’s first pickup truck since 1992. And, needless to say, fans have been clamoring for a Jeep with a bed ever since the Cherokee-based Comanche was discontinued.

The Gladiator name will also make a comeback after no fewer than 47 years, but Jeep built more than two pickups throughout its history. It actually made six of them, and even though they were built under different ownership and names, they’re all iconic in their own right. With Jeep’s first truck in more than two decades underway, we decided it’s the perfect time to look through the company’s history as a pickup manufacturer.

These Ford Ranger and F-150 Leveling Kits Are Your Ticket to Ride Off-Road

These Ford Ranger and F-150 Leveling Kits Are Your Ticket to Ride Off-Road

This is a first for Ford Performance, but plenty off-road nuts will salute the decision

When Mopar said that Jeep Gladiator owners spend on an average roughly $1,000 on accessories for their cars, Ford listened. It also took note that most of those parts comprise of lift kits and rock rails, so it complied.

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.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Go ahead and park the jacked-up Phantom on your desktop

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan just debuted this week, and while we knew it would be based on the Phantom, we didn’t realize there would be so much Phantom in it. It’s a clear descendant, that’s for sure. Be that as it may, the Cullinan still stands out with its seemingly unlimited headroom in comparison, and it’s the world’s first three-box SUV since the cargo area is completely separated from the passenger compartment thanks to a wall. And, despite the fact that it was designed to go off-road (not that anyone ever would do such a thing,) it still maintains that classic Rolls magic carpet ride feeling when cruising down the road. It doesn’t come cheap, though, and some of us are stuck admiring from a distance, so we figured there’s no time like the present and made it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve got some great images, so if you don’t like the one we picked out, slide on down to see more wallpaper quality images of this V-12 powered beast.

Kia’s SUV Madness Has No Boundaries: The Koreans Could Build Yet Another Crossover

But even though it already has nine crossovers spread over various markets, the Korean brand isn’t ready to stop just yet.

Can The 2020 Land Rover Defender Tackle The Harsh Desert in Dubai?

Can The 2020 Land Rover Defender Tackle The Harsh Desert in Dubai?

The company is very focused on making this the most capable Land Rover of all time, so our answer is a resounding yes

Land Rover is finally bringing back the Defender as a 2020 model. The rugged SUV was in production from 1983 to 2016, after which it went on a short exile for a few years. The company has teased the new Defender a few times, and this time, it decided to put out a video that shows the SUV doing test runs in some extreme conditions. The new Defender prototype was taken to Sharjah and handed over to the Red Cross Experts to test on the mighty sand dunes in the desert. Is the 2020 Defender still as tough as its previous iterations?

MG Extender

MG Extender

This truck could prove to be a game-changer for MG as a brand

MG, the iconic British brand, is making a comeback of sorts. The company has not really been in news as much as the other mainstream automakers, but with its latest offering, it sure should. From building fancy two-door sports cars, MG has moved to the commercial trucks fray. The company is fondly remembered for its two-seater sports cars from the 1960s and 1970s like the MGB and the MG Midget. Fast-forward to 2109, and the company has a pickup truck in its hands – the MG Extender. This is arguably the best segment to draw in volumes. For now, MG will be launching the Extender only in Thailand.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon MOPAR - Driven

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon MOPAR - Driven

Transform your dull commute into an adventure!

Few vehicles on the market today roll off the production line ready to handle the open road and the rockiest of paths, but the Wrangler is probably the most prominent of the few. There have always been a few caveats, though. It’s great for on- and off-road use, but you don’t exactly get the quietest cabin in the world. The on-road ride has also, traditionally, been a little rougher than other models in this segment. Or, at least that’s what we thought until we actually had a chance to take the new Wrangler JL for a test drive. After spending a week with the JL Wrangler we’ve come to realize that the Wrangler actually sits in a segment all its own. Despite our efforts, we can’t find another model this size, with a full-frame, that comes off the showroom floor ready to handle the business.

The real question is, however, whether or not the new JL Wrangler can still handle those off-road thrills but provide a more modern feel inside and more comfortable on-road ride. That’s a tall order for something designed for off-roading first, but the natural evolution of the Wrangler has put it in a unique position on the market. It honestly has no direct competitors in a true sense, and its go-anywhere mentality has been improved with fresh on-road manors. Is it enough to widen the Wrangler’s appeal and make it interesting to those that have traditionally searched for softer crossovers? Does the full-frame, solid-axle arrangement still stand on its own in this ever-evolving market where unibody construction and independent suspension is the norm? Is the JL Wrangler still a jack of all trades that’s good for a weekend of fun and carrying a small family during the week?

These are questions that we now have answers to, thanks to a week spent with the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. We didn’t just have any run-of-the-mill Rubicon, though. The Wrangler that showed up at TopSpeed HQ also included a ferocious amount of MOPAR parts that makes it more off-road ready than ever. So, that raises one more question that we have to answer – at what point does molesting the MOPAR catalog move the Wrangler from a modest daily driver to something that’s more suited for weekend thrills? This is our full, hands-on review of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL (with tons of Mopar parts) and our story of a week’s worth of fun, honest acclimation into a world that we seldom get to experience.
