These 10 Fast ‘Fuel-Powered’ Pickup Trucks Shouldn’t Be Forgotten When Electric Trucks Take Over
We talk about how the upcoming electric pickup trucks are fast and heavy on performance. Trucks like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, etc. are all quicker than some of the famous supercars of this era. Although internal combustion-engined trucks aren’t known to be ‘fast’, there are a handful of them that could are quite agile. Doug DeMuro decided to list 10 such cool fast trucks, and we agree with every entry on this list.
2022 Ford Ranger Splash Package
Ford offered the "Splash" package for the first time back in the 1990s when it was offered as an update for the Ranger pickup. Then, in June, 2021, the company trademarked the name again and initial rumors said it will be used for an electric pickup. Turns out those rumors were false, as the Splash is offered once again as an update package for the 2022 Ranger.
A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan
The Ram 1500 TRX is primarily an off-road performance truck, but with specs like a supercharged V-8, 700+ horses, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, etc. there’s no reason why it shouldn’t hit the drag strip. So, Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ decided to have it go up against a Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD for a series of drag races. The EVO is obviously a lot more agile and suited to the track, but there’s a catch – the TRX isn’t stock. It puts out 1,000 horses; almost 30-percent more than its stock output! Which car do you have your money on?
This AMG-Powered Toyota Hilux Proves Toyota Pick-Up Trucks Can Be Exciting
When you think Toyota, you don’t really think big power, unless we are talking about a Supra. The same goes for their SUVs and pick-up trucks, which although dependable, will not “tickle the pickle” when it comes to performance. With that said, Quentin Boylan from Praetoria, South Africa, decided to make his Toyota Hilux a lot more exciting.

Overlanding is a niche that’s picking up pace quite rapidly and automakers are offering accessories for the same. The OVRLANDX concept is developed keeping this in mind and it comes with goodies that will make your camping experience even better. Also, it comes with a lot of off-road equipment, thus elevating the AT4 trim as a whole.
Ford Just Aborted the Ford Bronco Pickup Project That Never Existed
The way the Ford Bronco turned out, it feels like it was conceived with a sole purpose in mind – to kill the Jeep Wrangler. So, naturally, everyone expected it to target even the Gladiator, the Wrangler-based pickup truck, by eventually launching a Bronco-based pickup truck. But, as it turns out, the rumored truck is canceled and the Gladiator will live to fight another day.

Hot Wheels has launched its own version of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, and while it does look pretty amazing, it won’t cost you the same $49,520 you would have had to pay when the original F-150 Raptor launched.

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago
A new rumor circulated the web says that Nissan is working on a new EV, but not just any EV – it’s reported a compact electric pickup truck. It’s not just the size and motivation that would make such a model unique, but the fact that it will have zero competition if it’s launched soon enough. Sounds crazy, right? Well it is, but maybe crazy is exactly what the industry needs right now, and it won’t be the first time Nissan created its own segment based on the compact pickup truck.
The Alpha Motors Superwolf Electric Pickup Just Created A New Niche
The notion of an EV pick-up truck may be disturbing for some, but that doesn’t deter car companies from churning out such vehicles. The Ford F150 Lightning, GMC Hummer, Rivian R1T, and Tesla Cybertruck, are only a few of the upcoming propositions. There is, however, another company that seems to be hell-bent on giving us a full EV lineup. Alpha Motors brings a fresh alternative to the EV pickup truck niche. After their Wolf (single cab) and Wolf + (crew cab), we now have the Alpha Superwolf – a crew cab version with proper full-size doors. But that’s not all the Superwolf brings to the table.
Chevrolet ZRX - The Raptor and TRX-Rivalling Off-Road Performance Truck That Chevy Desperately Needs
GM has been quite active in the pickup truck space since the beginning. It has even bifurcated its trucks between two brands – Chevrolet and GMC – and combined, both of them rake up pretty good numbers. Chevy brings in more sales as opposed to GMC and has managed to keep up with Ford and Ram in terms of models and trim levels on each of them. It even announced an electric Silverado that could arrive in a couple of years. However, the automaker has lagged in the case of a performance off-road truck. There are Silverado trims with off-roading prowess, but there’s no standalone model like the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram 1500 TRX.
There were rumors of Chevy working on one such product, but there’s still no concrete detail. It was rumored to be called the ZRX, but those were mere speculations. Chevy had trademarked the ‘ZRX’ moniker sometime back, but there seems to be no development on that front thus far. Is the automaker missing out on something big by not offering a performance off-road truck to the market? We sure think so.
