GMC Hummer EV: What Should You Be Getting - The SUV or Pickup Truck?

GMC Hummer EV: What Should You Be Getting - The SUV or Pickup Truck?

The SUV loses out on the power output, range and performance specs, but benefits from more cabin and cargo space, and better dimensions and angles

GMC introduced the Hummer EV supertruck last year and has now followed it up with the Hummer EV SUV. At the onset, it seems like a pickup truck that comes with a roof welded on the bed to make it an SUV. However, there is a lot more than meets the eye. Unlike the Rivian truck and SUV twins, the Hummer EV SUV has been placed as an inferior offering. There is a difference in specs, power outputs, and other things that makes it look like the second fiddle to the EV truck. The pricing, however, is on par for the standard models and there is a difference only in the Launch Edition model.

This ’Possessed’ Jeep Gladiator Has An 850-Horsepower Dodge Demon V-8 Under The Hood!

A 6.5-inch lift kit, 40-inch tires, and a 5.13 axle ratio are some of its other accolades

Jeep Gladiator needs no introduction. It was one of the most anticipated products and it didn’t let anyone down. What makes it even more special is that being an FCA product, or should I say Stellantis product, there is no dearth of customization options. But, here’s one example that probably sets the benchmark for Gladiators.

Presenting to you, courtesy of AutotopiaLA, the Jeep ‘Possessed’ Gladiator. It is big, brawny, and comes with mods that can make purists go weak in the knees

Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?

Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?

Chevy is late to the party but don’t discount it because the automaker has done its groundwork already

It was pretty hard to digest that one of the top truck manufacturers in the U.S., Chevrolet, was mum about electric trucks. At a time where every EV manufacturer was coming up with an offering to the open-bed segment, Chevy was out of the limelight for a very long time. Ford, on the other hand, has been active for years now, right from challenging Tesla to making official announcements.

But finally, the Bowtie has stepped up and officially announced its first-ever electric pickup truck in the form of the Silverado EV. And the icing on the cake? A range of 400 miles!

Ram Trucks Not A Part Of The Newly-Formed Stellantis Group Anymore

Ram Trucks Not A Part Of The Newly-Formed Stellantis Group Anymore

This comes as quite a shocker given how well Ram was doing with its pickup trucks

The merger between FCA and PSA came to light in 2019 when both the groups announced their holy matrimony. A lot of regrouping was expected at this point and there were hushed talks about some brands receiving the ax doing rounds. The new group, called Stellantis, ended up retaining them, but as it turns out, one major brand is getting banished from the kingdom, and it’s none other than the pickup truck manufacturer, Ram.

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone

This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is the GMC Syclone in all its glory

The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.

In case the Syclone still has the power to unearth some nostalgia for you, here’s a video that will refresh your knowledge on the performance pickup truck.

2021 Ford F-150 by Roush Performance

New wheels and tires, suspension system, and body enhancements make this Roush build special

Roush Performance has come up with its version of the 2021 Ford F-150. There are aesthetic upgrades, suspension system upgrades, and some changes inside the cabin. While the package seems pretty straight-forward without any major mechanical changes, Roush has limited it to just two trims from the lineup, that too when equipped with the V-8 mill and four-wheel-drive system. Roush has priced it at a little under $18,000, which obviously excludes the cost of the donor vehicle.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel - Driven

2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel - Driven

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel mill has the potential, but is it worth $4,000 over the Pentastar V-6?

The Jeep Gladiator was one of the most anticipated vehicles for a very long time. Jeep had revealed the Gladiator concept back in 2005 but took almost 14 years to roll out the production model. But, we finally had a Jeep-branded truck after three long decades. The truck was launched with much pomp and show and it caught a lot of attention. The truck comes in a wide number of trims with uncountable packages and accessories to complement it. The automaker keeps the Gladiator fresh by launching special editions, too.

However, Jeep hasn’t been able to sell the Gladiator in big numbers. One reason could be the high pricing, and the other was offering it with just a single engine option – the old but reliable V-6 Pentastar. Jeep probably figured this out soon and launched an EcoDiesel engine as an option. A Gladiator dressed in the Overland trim with the new diesel mill under the hood arrived at TopSpeed, and here are our impressions of it.
