Amazing Car for Sale: 1989 Lamborghini LM002 - The Real Lamborghini SUV
When we talk about Lamborghini’s history, the Miura, Countach, the 350 GT, and the Espada come to mind. One model, however, that barely makes it to the conversation is the LM002 – the company’s off-road truck.
This may come as a surprise for the non-Lamborghini fanboys, but yes, the Italian automaker produced an off-road truck in the past. Lamborghini made the LM002 between 1986 and 1993 and, surprisingly, only 328 examples were built. Of these, 49 were built for the U.S. market. Now, one of them has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer’s auction and we can’t stop admiring it.
2021 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition
Ten years since Ram became a standalone car brand, the automaker’s parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobile, is celebrating that milestone by introducing a special edition 1500 called the Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition.
The special edition Ram 1500 is the latest in a long line of limited-run trucks that the automaker has released this year. It’s based on the new Limited Longhorn trim that effectively takes place of the Laramie Longhorn.
2020 Mercedes-Benz X-Class By Kahn Automobiles
Kahn Automobiles is back with another customized creation - this time it’s the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. The automaker’s pickup truck attempt wasn’t very successful, but mods like this make the truck look desirable.
The X-Class by Kahn Automobiles has been customized aesthetically and doesn’t receive any mechanical changes. The company claims that the ethos behind the truck is ‘catwalk chic’ (whatever that is), but the end result looks pretty neat.
2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition
Jeep has introduced 80th Anniversary Edition on a few of its vehicles, with the Gladiator being one of them. This special edition brings about new additions on the outside and inside the cabin, but things are the same under the hood. The Gladiator hasn’t been a runaway success for Jeep, despite the hype it garnered before its launch. Will this edition shake-up the Gladiator and bring in sales for the automaker?
This Tesla Cybertruck Is Really A Ford F-150 Raptor Underneath
The Tesla Cybertruck created quite a stir when it was unveiled back in 2019. That’s mostly because it boasts an unusual design with extremely sharp lines, but it’s also because Tesla promises performance and towing specs that will put the Cybertruck well above the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, and the Ram 1500.
Naturally, electric vehicle and truck enthusiasts have lined up up to buy one, but the wait is going to be very long since the Cybertruck isn’t scheduled to roll off the assembly line until late 2021. But a fan from Bosnia took matters into his own hands and transformed a Ford F-150 Raptor into a Cybertruck.
Ford Announces The Power Output Figures For Every Engine Option On The 2021 F-150
When Ford introduced the fourteenth-gen F-150, not a lot was known about the engine range. The automaker announced the engines that will be part of the lineup, but the power outputs weren’t revealed.
Now, however, the details about the 2021 F-150’s power figures are officially out, along with the towing and payload capacities. While most of the mills don’t see a drastic increase, the hybrid looks to be worth the hype. The mill makes 570 pound-feet of torque, the most ever produced by an F-150. Will the hybrid turn out to be the best-selling model in the lineup?
The Volkswagen ID.4 Would Actually Make a Decent-Looking Little Truck
With the Volkswagen ID.4 revealed, we’re naturally wondering what’s coming next. Knowing Volkswagen, and the fact that the ID.4 and ID.3 share the same MEB architecture, a handful of electric models will probably share the same bones. So, why not an ID-based truck? Well, rendering artist KDesign AG was thinking the same thing and threw together the renderings you see here. Overall, it doesn’t look too bad at all, really.
Chevrolet Details The 2021 Multi-Flex Tailgate
Chevrolet is here with a versatile tailgate of its own called the Multi-Flex tailgate. As expected, it is carried over as it is from the GMC trucks and given a new name. These tailgates certainly have an extra advantage over the simple ones that don’t offer any other function except for opening and closing. However, the Multi-Flex tailgate wasn’t the only news here; the 2021 models will come with some new standard features and better tow ratings.
A Hidden Ram TRX Easter Egg Hilariously Trolls The Ford F-150 Raptor
The arrival of the 2021 RAM TRX was more than just the debut of an incredible pickup truck; it was also a gauntlet being thrown in the direction of the current king of all trucks, the Ford F-150 Raptor.
There’s no secret that the RAM TRX’s purpose on this earth is to take down the mighty Raptor. Well, as far as motivations go, RAM included a rather hilarious easter egg on the TRX to remind its current and prospective owners exactly what it’s all about. Pop open the hood of the truck, lift up the airbox cover, and you’ll see it, plain as day.
Underneath the cover is an engraving of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, only it’s not just a T-Rex (or TRX, if you’re Fiat-Chrysler) that you’ll see; it’s a T-Rex that has, of all things, a raptor in its mouth. The subtlety, or lack thereof, shouldn’t be lost on anyone who owns a RAM TRX moving forward.
The Ford F-150 Hybrid Makes the Ram 1500 Hemi Hybrid Look Bad in Towing Racing
Ford made us wait for the hybrid truck for a long time. It was in news earlier this year for offering a pathetic range, but Ford somehow managed to kill the news. When the company unveiled the 2021 F-150, the hybrid was showcased, and it showed a lot of potential. Although the truck is still some time away, we have finally gotten to see how it performs in the real world.
A video was uploaded on YouTube by “F150gen14” that shows the 2021 F-150 Hybrid take on the Ram 1500 Hemi E-torque in a towing drag race. If this video is a testament to the truck’s performance, then the hybrid mill will make for a large chunk of 2021 F-150 sales.
The Chevy Silverado Will Finally Have a Cool Tailgate
First, it was the war of who’s got the biggest grille. Now the focus has shifted to tailgates. The main unique selling points of pickup trucks are cargo beds. While there isn’t much you can do in that aspect apart from offering different types of Tonneau covers, or illumination, or different material for the base. Ram and GMC changed the game when they launch tailgates that can be used more efficiently. These tailgates became the talk of the town, but surprisingly, the other players in the market, Ford and Chevrolet, didn’t make a move. Although we’re yet to see the former do something about it, Chevrolet has made its move.
The automaker has announced a “MultiFlex” tailgate that will be available for the 2021 Silverado. There isn’t a lot known yet, but Chevy will drop more details about it on September 21.
2020 Ford F-250 - Driven
The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for over four decades now, and this legacy seems sufficient to introduce it. The company has a range of pickup trucks, ranging from light-duty to heavy-duty and for varied purposes. The list is exhaustive, but the bottom line is that if you need a full-size pickup truck, no matter what the budget or usage pattern, Ford has an offering for you, right from F-150 to the F-750.
While the F-150 is the best-seller of the lot and suffices for most of the needs, people looking for a little heavy-duty work tend to hop on to the next available option – the F-250. The F-250 is the entry-level model pf the Super Duty series that also includes the F-350 and F-450. This isn’t outright expensive, comes with strong specs, and fits the bill for most people looking to use it as a work truck. It is offered even with premium features on the top trim.
Recently, the 2020 Ford F-250 arrived at the Top Speed headquarters in the mid-Lariat trim, and here are our impressions of this beast:
