Is Ram Working On An Electric 1500 Pickup Truck?

Ram Is Open to Building an Electric Pickup, But Only Under Certain Circumstances

Ram has finally broken the silence on its electrification strategy. At a time when electrification is taking over the pickup truck segment by storm, Ram had been awfully quiet on this subject. There are a lot of new automakers in this segment who are looking to take on the Big Three players with electric pickup trucks. Ford and Chevy are also working on them, but what about Ram?

We didn’t know so far, but now we do. Ram has said that it is very much in the game, but has “different view of timing and adoption rates”. Is this a smart move or will Ram pay for being a late entrant to the market?

The Cybertruck is Riskier for Tesla and Elon Musk Than You Realize

The Cybertruck is Riskier for Tesla and Elon Musk Than You Realize

The Tesla Cybertruck Is The Definition of Taking a Chance

What more can we say about the Tesla Cybertruck that hasn’t already been said? It’s awesome, it’s ugly, it’s interesting, it will work, it won’t work – we’ve said and heard it all. But, there’s something that you haven’t heard quite yet, and that’s the cold hard fact that neither Tesla nor Elon Musk did any market research before designing and developing the Cybertruck. This is about as risky as it gets for an automaker, and it’s probably a big reason why models like the Mercedes X-Class just couldn’t cut the mustard.

GMC’s Latest Teaser Video Gives Us a Decent Look at the Hummer EV

The trailer also gave us a glimpse of the supertruck’s silhouette

Apart from the Bronco, there was another nameplate set to make a return this year – the Hummer. GMC even played out commercials at the Superbowl announcing a 20 May 2020 debut, but that didn’t happen due to the pandemic. Now, the company has announced that the Hummer will debut later this fall. The production of the electric super truck will begin in the fall of 2021.

Check out some awesome detail screenshots from the video at the bottom of this page!

The Ford Maverick Pickup Will Be Little More Than a Transit Connect With a Bed

The Ford Maverick Pickup Will Be Little More Than a Transit Connect With a Bed

This explains the weird Maverick spy shots that looked an awful lot like a Transit

So far, the Ford Maverick pickup has been a pretty well-kept secret outside of some leaked CAD images and a photo that showed off what appeared to be the real tailgate with the Maverick name stamped on it. Rumors have suggested that it would be part of the Bronco family and could even be the rumored Bronco truck that has now been all but confirmed to arrive before 2024. However, a new leak via Maverick Chat forums, which quotes a person claiming to work for a supplier, has painted a very clear picture of what we can expect, and it’s probably not good.

It's Almost Official - a Ford Bronco Pickup Is Coming, But The Question Is When

It’s Almost Official - a Ford Bronco Pickup Is Coming, But The Question Is When

The Jeep Gladiator’s latest rival could arrive as early as 2022

Earlier this month, Ford announced that the Bronco will not just be a model in the lineup, but will serve as a sub-brand. The reason was to probably give a lot more presence and added value to the brand. Not to mention, Ford’s plans to introduce multiple Bronco-related products.

The automaker has already unveiled the two-door and the four-door Broncos, as well as the Bronco Sport. A Bronco Raptor is also inevitable and could be seen within a couple of years. Now, Automobile Magazine claims that a Bronco pickup is also in the works and is expected to come in 2024. However, the Blue Oval is trying to shorten this period and is planning to have the truck out by 2022. More worry for the Jeep Gladiator?

Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?

Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?

Ford knows people will buy the F-150 no matter how high it’s priced

Kim Kardashian went about ‘breaking the internet’ a couple of years ago and her husband could do the same if he becomes the President of the U.S. In between these things came the Ford Bronco, which has been the talk of the town ever since it was unveiled and is a worthy candidate for the same award. Such is the off-roader’s hype that many have forgotten the fourteenth-gen 2021 Ford F-150 was also unveiled just a couple of weeks before it.

If it was any other time, America’s best-selling vehicle would’ve garnered all the attention; but not this time. However, there is some news on that front as well. According to a report from CarsDirect, the 2021 F-150 could go north of $80,000. How about that!

Next-Gen Frontier: If You Didn't Like Nissan DNA in Your Mercedes, Maybe You'll Like Mercedes DNA in Your Nissan

Next-Gen Frontier: If You Didn’t Like Nissan DNA in Your Mercedes, Maybe You’ll Like Mercedes DNA in Your Nissan

The next-generation Nissan Frontier won’t be a full redesign

In 2017 Mecedes-Benz decided to enter the pickup truck market with the X-Class. However, the X-Class wasn’t a true Mercedes under the shell, but a modified third-generation Nissan Frontier, also known as the Navara in other markets. Mercedes’ concept was to offer a more premium truck in terms of looks and equipment, but it seems that it didn’t go really well. After only two years on the market, the X-Class was discontinued. But a new report claims that the German truck will actually live on as Nissan wants to use the modifications that Mercedes made to the platform on the next-generation Frontier.

Weird Car for Sale: 1993 Geo Metro Dually Truck

Weird Car for Sale: 1993 Geo Metro Dually Truck

Fancy a mini truck? This modded Geo Metro is what you need!

Back in the late 1980s, General Motors launched Geo as a subdivision of Chevrolet. It was supposed to compete with the important growing market and offered five vehicles based on models from Suzuki, Toyota, and Isuzu until it was discontinued in 2004. The Geo Metro was one of them. Based on the Suzuki Cultus, it debuted in 1989 and replaced the Chevrolet Sprint. The nameplate lived over two generations until 2001, and it was sold as a Chevy from 1998. The Metro went into the history books as an obscure car, an experiment that didn’t catch on, but there’s at least one example that’s worth the attention. It’s been converted to a truck, and it’s on sale for cheap.

But, a couple of months back, a 3-D image of a truck’s tailgate with ‘Maverick’ embossed on it started doing rounds. Now, Motor1 has received another image from an anonymous source that has ‘Maverick’ stamped on it. Does this confirm a new pickup truck from the Blue Oval?

This Ford Bronco 6x6 Pickup Screams Merica!

The new Ford Bronco is turning out to be every rendering artist’s wet dream

It hasn’t even been a week since the Bronco was launched and we already have wild renderings for it popping up from everywhere. Saleen showcased its version of the Bronco earlier, and now we have the Bronco rendered as a 6x6 pickup truck. There are a handful of trucks with a third axle we’ve seen, with the most reminisced one being the Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6. But, does that formula work on the Bronco? Well, you tell us!

The Mustang Mach-E Pickup Is The Truck That Ford Should Build

The Mustang Mach-E Pickup Is The Truck That Ford Should Build

The world’s best-selling truck company could become the first automaker to have two electric trucks in the market!

The electric pickup truck market is arguably the most competitive segment today. Apart from mainstream automakers dipping their toes in this niche, several new startups have dived in headfirst. Rivian, Bollinger, Atlis, Lordstown, and many more are starting their automotive journeys with electric pickup trucks, but none of them have a production-ready offering on the road yet. However, if Ford were to capitalize on this rendering of the Mach-E as a pickup – which we think it should, it could have not one, but two electric trucks on the market. Would you buy a Mach-E pickup truck?

The 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor to Head Stateside With An Unexpected Engine

The 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor to Head Stateside With An Unexpected Engine

It will be powered by the familiar 2.7-liter, V-6 mill with 300-plus horses under the hood and all the hardcore off-roading equipment!

Ford has denied us the pleasure of having the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. for a very long time. It reached a point where aftermarket companies started offering customization packages for the standard ranger to fill that void. Numerous rumors have surfaced in the past regarding the Ranger Raptor’s debut here in the States, but none of them came true.

Similar news has surfaced again, but this time with some evidence. Our friends at Carexpert.com.au have informed us that the Ranger Raptor is coming to the States and will be powered by a V-6, turbocharged gasoline engine. Is this good news or what!

This Mercedes X-Class "Exy Extreme+" by Carlex Design Is Actually Tolerable

Well, at least someone has given attention to the rebadged Nissan Navara!

Do you remember the Mercedes X-Class pickup truck? The Nissan Navara that Mercedes tried to sell as a premium pickup truck? Yeah, well the truck may have flopped horribly in the market, but Carlex Design has tried to make some work out of it.

The changes don’t scream Nissan anymore, so the build looks nice. Called the Exy Extreme+, its interior and exterior were given a revamp and it looks a little more acceptable than the standard Mercedes Navara, err... the standard Mercedes X-Class.

This Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Pickup Is Begging to Fight the Ford Ranger Raptor

This is not the truck we deserve, but the truck we need

The 2021 Dodge Durango was launched a few days back and has been welcomed warmly by enthusiasts all around the globe. Dodge has set a cat among the pigeons in form of the 710-horsepower Hellcat engine under the hood of the 2021 Durango. This is certainly bound to reinvigorate the powerful SUV segment.

X-Tomi has rendered the 2021 Dodge Durango as a pickup truck and we have fallen in love with it. With the Ranger Raptor enjoying some sort of a monopoly on the market, the Durango as a compact, powerful truck could rival it for supremacy. Who are you betting on?

This Mustang Mach 1, Ford Ranchero Mashup is Exactly the Car Ford Needs to Produce

This Mustang Mach 1, Ford Ranchero Mashup is Exactly the Car Ford Needs to Produce

This is the high-performance Ranchero Mach 1 truck that Ford needs to build ASAP

Pickup trucks have been manufactured since the early days of the Ford Model T, and by the 1950s, they had become so popular that many buyers purchased them for lifestyle rather than utilitarian reasons. As a result, Detroit-based automakers introduced car-based truck, the most iconic being the Ford Ranchero and the Chevrolet El Camino, launched in 1957 and 1959, respectively. Although these kind of two-door, car-based trucks wouldn’t make much financial sense in the modern era, some enthusiasts are still hoping that the Ranchero and the El Camino will return after many decades. It probably won’t happen, but Youtuber TheSketchMonkey just rendered a modern Ranchero based on the Mustang that Ford should really look into.

Throttle House Clearly Explains Why the 2020 Shelby F-150 Super Snake is the Truck Every Man Needs

770 horsepower should be enough, but (luckily) there’s more

Pickup trucks made a name for themselves through workhorse character and hauling ability but who says they can’t boost one’s ego from time to time?

Certainly not Shelby, who jammed 770 horsepower inside the F-150 Super Snake which we believe is, actually, the only genuine competitor for the incoming Hellcat-powered Ram TRX.

Surprisingly, this unorthodox truck fits all the roles quite well

The Cybertruck has been reimagined as a heavy-armored truck, combat truck, a vehicle fit to be driven on Mars and whatnot. But how would it serve as a pizza delivery vehicle or a taxi? It seems a little contrasting with its demeanor, but U.K.-based LeaseFetcher has imagined it in various avatars.

The packages offer cosmetic, software, and hardware upgrades

Ford Ranger owners must be happy with all the packages available for the truck lately. A couple of months back, Ford introduced a package that gave the Ranger extra horses and torque. Even Roush started offering a suspension kit for the newer models of the truck. Now, Ford has decided to introduce three new factory off-road packages for the mid-size pickup truck. These kits will be available for the 2019 and 2020 models and offer cosmetic, software, and hardware upgrades.

Chevy's Pushrod LS Crate Engine Finally Has Some Competition From Ford

Chevy’s Pushrod LS Crate Engine Finally Has Some Competition From Ford

Ford Now Sells the 7.3-Liter "Godzilla" Pushrod V-8 as a Crate Engine

Ford’s iconic pushrod V-8 engine, the Windsor, was discontinued in 2000 after almost 40 years on the market, leaving the Modular engine as the main mill across the entire lineup. From the Mustang to the F-Series trucks, this engine has powered almost every vehicle with a Ford or Lincoln badge since 1990.

The Blue Oval then revived the pushrod engine in 2019 in the form of a 7.3-liter V-8 dubbed Godzilla. Originally offered in the fourth-generation F-250 truck, the mill is now available as a crate engine. And it’s Ford’s long-awaited answer to General Motor’s LS crate engine, also a cam-in-block pushrod design.

Can a First-Gen Tesla Roadster Really Pull a Massive Ford F-650?

Can a First-Gen Tesla Roadster Really Pull a Massive Ford F-650?

The Roadster wins, but not the way you’d expect it to

Tug-of-war became a super hit after Tesla released a video of the Cybertruck towing the F-150 with ease. Since then, we’ve seen all sorts of such wars involving cars; some that are on par with each other, and some radically different. We even saw one vehicle take on three other cars at a time

The two vehicles in question are a Tesla Roadster and a Ford F-650. There is nothing in common between them. It’s more like a family feud that’s still not over. Will the F-650 get the redemption for Ford, or will the Roadster push the scoreboard to 2-0 for Tesla?
