Is The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus Really Worth $1.1 Million?

This is more than double the price of a new unit back in 2014

The G-Class is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models - there is no doubt about that. And for sure Brabus does the best work when it comes to updating Mercedes models. Launched back in 2013, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus made quite a sensation. But is it sensational enough for someone to actually think it is worth $1.1 million? At launch, it was priced from $430,000, so let that sink in.

Here's How the Ford Ranger Will Look if it Is Built by Other Automakers

Here’s How the Ford Ranger Will Look if it Is Built by Other Automakers

Audi should probably build a truck based on the Ranger - it would probably be better than the failure that was the Mercedes X-Class

Ever since its official launch everyone agreed that the new generation Ford Ranger is quite a departure from the old Ranger. While its design is not a huge improvement over what we were used with, the new Ranger is fresh and its Maverick inspired look fits it very well.

But what if the new Ranger design will inspire a few other trucks?

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

The 2022 Nissan Frontier is a huge upgrade over the outgoing model, breaking the chain of a 15-year design philosophy

The Nissan Frontier has been a trusted workhorse for its owners for a very long time. The truck has been as reliable as it can get. Last year, a Chicago-based delivery driver, Brian Murphy, clocked one million miles on it! However, Nissan took the ‘don’t fix if it ain’t broke’ philosophy a little too seriously. At a time when automakers come up with significant changes even in facelifts every year, Nissan retained the same design language on the Frontier for 15 years! But, for the new, third-gen 2022 model, we get a revamped design that puts it in line with the modern trucks. The company introduced a new engine and gearbox for the previous model year and the same has been carried over this time as well.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier in the top-sped PRO-4X off-road trim arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here’s all you need to know about it.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

The F-150 Lightning has everything going in its favor except for the range and towing capacity

Ford launched the F-150 Lightning earlier this year. The electric truck checks almost all the boxes and can be considered as the first mainstream electric pickup truck for the masses. There are a lot of electric trucks launched in recent years, like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the Lordstown Endurance, the Bollinger B2, etc. But, none of them offer the all-round capability that the F-150 Lightning does.

The Ford truck comes with all the bells and whistles one can ask for, and then some more. For now, Ford has launched it in one body style and three basic trims plus an exclusive work truck model, but expect it to grow in the coming years. With all the subsidies and credits, the F-150 Lightning works out to be the cheapest full-size truck in the market today! (more on this in the ‘Pricing’ section). From the looks of it, the F-150 Lightning seems to be an all-rounder that offers good power outputs, decent range, and a lot of tech features. Do you think it will be a runaway success, or will the loyalists look around at other trucks?

Watch Five Pickup Trucks Try To Invoke The Usain Bolt Spirit In Them In This Drag Race

Watch Five Pickup Trucks Try To Invoke The Usain Bolt Spirit In Them In This Drag Race

It was the Ford Maverick, Hyundai Santa Cruz, Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tundra, and the Ford F-150 Raptor facing each other

The folks at ‘The Fast Lane Truck’ conducted a drag race with not two, but five different pickup trucks. They had trucks across segments, starting from the Ford Maverick and the Hyundai Santa Cruz, to the Nissan Frontier, the Toyota Tundra, and the Ford F-150 Raptor. This wasn’t a conventional race wherein you just had all five trucks go at it together. It was more of a gauntlet match wherein the winner of a race faced a new truck in the next round and the loser got eliminated. Sounds a little like Squid Game, doesn’t it?
