Video: Would You Drive This Six-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler in the U.S.?
When you talk about a beast on six wheels, the sight of Richard Hammond driving a G63 on the sand dunes around Dubai comes to mind. But here’s one other example, and perhaps, a poor man’s Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6.
A 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been converted from an SUV to a pickup truck, and from a four-wheel config to a six-wheel one. YouTuber Doug DeMuro got his hands on it and here’s what it is all about.
Tesla Makes A Bulletproof T-Shirt to Celebrate the Glass-Shattering Incident
The Cybertruck’s glass-shattering saga will remain fresh in our minds for a very long time. It’s not because of what happened on stage, but because Musk and his team don’t want us to forget.
Tesla is channeling all the hype it has received through memes and internet jokes into merchandise sales. On that note, the company is launching a new T-shirt featuring the incident, along with other Cybertruck-themed apparels and accessories. This is modern marketing 101 right here. The only downside - it’ll set you back by $45.
2020 Ford F-150 Cattleman Edition by Long McArthur Ford
There are lot of reputed aftermarket companies these days like Hennessey, Roush, and so on, whom you can entrust to do a good job on every car they tweak. But, that’s not feasible for everyone; cost-wise. Then there are other companies that will do it for cheap, but will you trust them to do a safe job?
People are skeptical about going to them as it may void the factory warranty and who knows, maybe even mess around with insurance claims in worst-case scenarios. However, there is an option to do inexpensive mods these days at dealership level as well. One such Ford dealership which goes by the name of Long McArthur has come up with a Cattleman Edition for the F-150. This no-nonsense package has most of the stuff required for a work truck. Feels fresh to see packages for the work trucks in the slew of futuristic trucks these days, right?
GMC Ups The Ante By Introducing The Off-Road AT4 Trim for The 2020 Canyon
It looks like General Motors has decided to stop letting GMC play the second fiddle to Chevrolet’s offerings. The company has finally decided to let Robin get his own batmobile (Robmobile?!). GMC’s mid-size pickup truck, the Canyon, will be receiving an AT4 trim. The AT4 will be replacing the All Terrain trim in the Canyon’s portfolio, thus refreshing and hopefully boosting the sales of the pickup truck’s off-road version. As a bonus, the Denali trim also receives some new additions. It looks like a positive start of the year for GMC.
Can a Turbo Diesel Jeep Wrangler Hold Up in a Drag Race Against a Gladiator, Ram Rebel, and Ford F-250?
We are always excited to see a drag race between monster vehicles. It’s one thing to see supercars race, but a completely different feeling to see huge beasts rev the holy hell out of their engines.
This time around, the guys at TFL raced three pickup trucks and an SUV in a gauntlet-style race where the winner of a round proceeds to the next to face a new opponent. The last standing contender wins it all. For this race, we have the likes of Jeep Gladiator, Ram Rebel, Ford F-250 Super Duty, and Jeep Wrangler. So, let the games begin!
Just Like the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, the Rivian R1S and R1T Will Come Standard With Amazon Alexa
Amazon has seamlessly slipped into the automotive sector quite successfully. Unlike Sony and Samsung, Amazon is not working on a product directly for now, but it sure has left a strong impression by working with some of the most happening brands of today.
At the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, Lamborghini added Amazon Alexa to its feature list and this was nothing short of an honor for the Seattle-based company. But it doesn’t end here. Now, Rivian has announced that Alexa will be directly integrated into the hardware of the R1T truck and R1S SUV.
Cool Truck for Sale: 1956 Ford F-100 With a Shelby GT350 Voodoo Engine
Believe it or not, this is actually a Ford F-Series pickup truck. Although it is far from the conventional trucks that we’re used to seeing now, this wacky design was quite common back in the day. There aren’t many examples of this old-school truck available online today, but one example has somehow arrived on the Barrett-Jackson website.
However, this particular model is highly customized and comes packed with a modern Mustang V-8 Voodoo engine under the hood. And, the best part – it is mated to a manual transmission! Is this the best package or what?
See What Happens When Two Evenly Matched Trucks Go Against Each Other in a Tug-Of-War
Thanks to Tesla’s efforts to ridicule the Ford F-150, tugging wars are now becoming a raging trend and there are many challenges on the internet where you can see vehicles of different shapes and sizes going up against each other. From the likes of Mercedes G-Class and Suzuki Jimny, to Ford F-250 and Jeep Gladiator, we’ve seen it all.
In most of the challenges mentioned, the winners could be predicted from the very off, so here’s one that will leave you scratching your head. The guys at Edmunds brought the 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon to the battlefield to determine the winner. Who are you placing your bets on, then?
Jeep Gladiator and Ford F-250 Tug-of-War Shows the Difference Between Function and Fun
The Jeep Gladiator made a strong comeback last year, much to the excitement of Jeep enthusiasts. Irrespective of the legacy and its capabilities, we all can agree to the fact that the 2020 Gladiator is priced at a premium; the top Rubicon trim retails at over $50,000, for example.
Forget about the Ford F-150; with that budget, you can even get a brand new Ford F-250. That said, the TFL team bought both the vehicles for the same price and decided to pit them against each other in a challenge that’s taken the truck market by storm – a tug-of-war. We know the winner already, right?
The Rivian R1T Just Put the Tesla Cybertruck to Shame With Tank Turn Capability
Remember when rumors surfaced a few days before the Cybertruck’s launch that it would be able to turn 360-degrees like a tank? Although Tesla didn’t bring the feature, it sure sowed the seeds into the minds of the competition. It became a hot topic and Rivian decided to capitalize on it. The American startup recently revealed a video wherein its R1T pickup truck can be seen turning on a dime! This is a hell lot more than just a marketing ploy or a gimmick. Point – Rivian.
Heavy-Duty Cybertruck with Six Wheels Looks Oddly Mesmerizing
The Cybertruck is an intimidating vehicle in stock form with those 35-inch wheels and the unorthodox, pointed-top shape. The Cybertruck became the renderers’ guinea pig and they went berserk to make the Cybertruck look even weirder than it already is.
But, imagine what it would look like with six wheels. Well, DrivableDesigns came up with a rendering to show what this truck would look like with a six-wheel setup.

With Christmas literally being a few days away, automakers have started rolling out their holiday greetings for the masses. BMW’s M Division is the latest to do so with a holiday-themed ad that features a vehicle that was never sold to the public.

If You Pre-Ordered the Tesla Cybertruck in Europe, You Might Want to Cancel It
The Cybertruck was widely criticized for its weird shape, but that was mainly because of how it looked. Soon after the unveiling, a lot of other practical problems came to light, such as parking woes, truckbed usability to haul longer objects, and so on. One such glaring problem that raised a lot of eyebrows was the safety aspect. The Cybertruck sure has strong components, but how can it be tested for crash ratings and how will it fare in case of a rollover? With a lot of questions unanswered, an expert in Europe has deemed the Cybertruck to be far from road-legal. This is a huge blow to the company. Will Tesla heavily modify the Cybertruck to attain road legality?
The Cybunker Is the Perfect Add-On For Your New Tesla Cybertruck
When you talk about the accessories for the Tesla Cybertruck, you think about overlanding and off-road equipment. But, how about a garage for it?
A research, development, and design company called Lars Buro has come up with a garage for the oddly-shaped truck called the Cybunker. Believe it or not, this is the need of the hour because the Cybertruck DOES NOT fit in a standard two-car garage. Also, the Cybunker is not a random concept that will never see the light of the day; Lars Buro says it is production-ready.
Hope for the Cybertruck Restored as Image of Young Elon Musk Replacing a Window Surfaces on Twitter

Elon Musk Says No to an Electric Motorcycle, but That Doesn’t Mean a Cyberbike Is Out of the Question
If you watched the Tesla Cybertruck’s launch then you remember that the ATV brought onto the stage at the end of the unveil received a rousing round of applause. The ATV was much talked about even later on and people just couldn’t get over that beautiful beast. Luckily, Musk finally confirmed that it will be available as an option with the Cybertruck. But now Tesla’s main man says that we might get a Tesla-made two-wheeler as well! And while he’s not considering a motorbike, an electric dirt bike is a possibility.
