The Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup concept was unveiled in 2015 at the North American International Auto Show and, despite being well received, Hyundai has been on the fence about it - until now. After over four years, Hyundai has finally announced that it will be manufacturing the truck at its U.S. factory. Is it too late to the party, though?

Why the Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Better Than the Rivian R1T

Why the Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Better Than the Rivian R1T

You have Elon Musk as the face of the company; isn’t that enough already?

The war of electric pickup trucks is hot right now and, while there are multiple players in the segment like Fisker, Atlis, and Bollinger, all eyes are on Rivian and Tesla. The former has already announced most of the features and specs for its R1T pickup, but there’s not much we know about the Tesla pickup. We’ve yet to even see the actual truck, and despite this, there are a lot of reasons to believe that the Tesla pickup truck, called the Cybertruck for now, will be better than the R1T.

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

Now this is what we call a handicap-accessible vehicle!

The GMC Sierra 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins is a one-off truck that showcases custom features designed for disabled people. Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, this truck was created by Rolling Big Power, an industry leading manufacturer of aftermarket parts and Keaton “The Muscle” Hoskins from TV’s “Diesel Brothers.” It is based on the older, third-generation Sierra 3500HD Denali.

The truck was built for Jonathan Barber, who was involved in a coal-mining accident in 2017 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Fitted with a 14-inch lift suspension, this bespoke Denali truck also features a gullwing door, hydraulic chair lift, and twist-handle controls for throttle and brakes, all designed to make life easier for its disabled driver. It’s fancy on the outside and practical on the inside, but it’s also special enough to draw a lot of onlookers at the SEMA Show or other truck-specific events. In other words, it’s a handicap-accessible show rig that we don’t get to see too often.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition

2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition

Chevy mixes the Heavy Duty name with a heavy duty special edition truck

Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is, in fact, the road-going, street-legal offspring of the Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt concept car shown back in 2016. Only this time, you will be able to actually get one from your Chevy dealership, provided you show enough patience to wait until the fall of 2020 when deliveries are slated to kick off.

Details are scarce for the time being and the 12-month waiting window is certainly far from appealing, but there are plenty of reasons to jump for joy. The Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is based on the Silverado 2500 LTZ, which means that in theory, it should be available with a V-8 engine. The only question is which one, as Chevy is offering a choice of two V-8s for the LTZ: a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter.

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports

This Super Duty is the Hulk of the truck world

One of the baddest and meanest trucks to have graced this year’s SEMA Show is this Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports, a California-based aftermarket company. There is nothing to not like about this truck. It looks vintage, it has the ‘Baja’ identity, and it has the old-school persona attached to it. The Baja Forged Super Duty is an all-in-one mobile command center, workshop, and campsite that will be utilized as a chase truck for the Baja Forged Ford Ranger that was launched by the company at last year’s SEMA Show. Such is the versatility of the truck that even Ford calls this the “Swiss army knife for the modern adventurer.” Need we say anything more about it?

2019 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner

2019 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner

There’s nowhere in the world that you can’t go to with this do-it-all pickup truck

The Nissan Frontier Desert Runner doesn’t have the racing pedigree of the Nissan Global Time Attack TT 370Z or the sheer tuning audacity of the Nissan Kicks Street Sport, but if you’re looking for a rugged version of Nissan’s long-standing pickup with some serious off-road chops, the Frontier Desert Runner should be right up your alley. Developed by the Nissan Motorsports team in collaboration with MA Motorsports, the Frontier Desert Runner is teeming with purpose-specific upgrades that help enhance the pickup’s already impressive form and functionality. Nissan has yet to give any indication of potential production plans for the tricked-out pickup, but that could come soon if there’s decent enough demand for it. For now, though, the Nissan Frontier Desert Runner takes center stage at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show.

After seeing the Rambler, RTR’s experiment with the Ranger can be deemed a successful one

Ford teamed up with RTR to tag-team the 2020 Ranger and has brought two fine examples to the 2019 SEMA show. One of those concepts was the Ranger RTR, and the other is the Ranger RTR Rambler.

Let’s take a look at what the Ford Ranger Rambler by RTR is all about!

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

This is a proper tribute piece to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces

RAM’s penchant for rolling out special edition trucks has paved the way for the truck brand to introduce a new run of special edition models that pay tribute to the five branches of the United States military. The special edition trucks fall under the RAM 1500 Built To Serve Edition name. Each of the five armed services — Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines — will receive their own special edition treatment. It’s unclear which of the five will get rolled out first, but the specific launches will take place every three months, beginning next week when the truck brand hosts its own Veterans Day celebration on November 11.

The Tesla Cybertruck To Be Revealed On November 21 2019, But Will It Be Used as a Military Truck Too?

Elon Musk has finally revealed the Cybertruck’s reveal date, but the likelihood of it being used as a military truck is slim

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the Tesla pickup truck, now called the Cybertruck. In the past couple of days, the biggest news is that it will be revealed on November 21 near the SpaceX rocket factory in Los Angeles at a standalone event. The reveal date coincides with the Los Angeles Auto Show, but we all know how Musk operates. Does he give a damn about it? Of course not!

On the other side of the spectrum, there was some incorrect reporting that Elon Musk was pitching the "Cybertruck" as a military vehicle. He has since said that was far from the case, and we’ve got the scoop on that below too.

2020 Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150

A modern interpretation of the iconic F-150 SVT Lightning

The 2020 Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 is a high-performance concept truck that Shelby built for the 2019 SEMA Show. Developed in response to Shelby "enthusiast’s requests for a scorching fast street truck," it’s essentially an F-150-based version of Shelby’s outstanding Super Snake Mustang.

2019 Chevrolet E-10 Concept

2019 Chevrolet E-10 Concept

This electric hot rod concept may pave way for Chevy’s future EVs

Chevrolet brought a very unique pickup truck to SEMA that is a sweet blend of the company’s rich history and the ‘electrifying’ future. Called the E-10 concept, the product has reincarnated from a 1962 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck. If you’ve been following the concepts at SEMA this year, you will immediately strike a comparison with the Dodge Lowliner. However, this low-slung pickup truck comes with an electric powertrain under the hood. So, does this bold truck live up to the hype it has created over the last couple of days? It sure does!

Your Pickup Truck Is Secretly Begging for the Elongator Tailgate

Your Pickup Truck Is Secretly Begging for the Elongator Tailgate

A nifty product for your truck that takes care of the hauling and loading woes

Until a couple of years ago, no one ever thought that even tailgates on trucks could do anything other than opening and closing, as they were basic flip doors used to access the truck bed. In fact, the power tailgate itself was quite a revelation when it was first introduced. Since then, automakers like GM and Ram have explored this area a bit more and have come up with tailgates that can do much more than just giving access to the bed. Although such tailgates are immensely useful, they are still not standard issue and can’t be had on every trim of every truck. This left a vacuum for aftermarket companies like Elongator to fill. Elongator is one product that everyone needs, but no has one offered; until now..
