Watch A Scania Skip Truck and A Scania Grab Truck Gang Up On A Volvo Pump Truck On A Drag Strip

Three lorries giving their all in straight-line races is the dose of fun you need today!

The folks at Carwow organized a different type of race this time. They got hold of three big lorries (known as ‘Trucks’ Stateside, but we’ll stick to calling them lorries to avoid confusion) to compete against each other in a series of drag and rolling races, along with a brake test. They all do different kinds of stuff. One of them is a grab lorry, the other with a concrete pumping machine, and the final one a skip lorry. In the conventional races with cars, you can kind of guess which one is going to win. But, that’s not the case here and we don’t know which one to root for either!

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn't Come With Compromise

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn’t Come With Compromise

RAM’s EV will be built around its core values: Durability and Capability

Ram officially announced the electric 1500 a couple of weeks back without a whole lot of details. Ram’s parent company, Stellantis, celebrated an EV Day earlier this month wherein announced EVs from Dodge and Jeep, and of course, Ram. The 1500 EV’s production is slated to commence in 2024, but this could give it an edge over its rivals – which arrive earlier – as Ram can study the market better and come up with a well-rounded product right from the launch.

In fact, Ram also resonates with this and is confident of coming up with a truck that will be better than the Ford F-150 Lightning and the electric Chevy Silverado. The company’s brand marketing head noted that the electric 1500 won’t be a compromise. Well, if it’s arriving that late, we really hope it won’t in any aspect.

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Is Almost $4k More Expensive Than Ford Maverick

Hyundai seems pretty confident in the Santa Cruz Pickup, so much so that it’s priced well above its main competition, the Ford Maverick

Hyundai has announced that the Santa Cruz pickup will go on sale at the end of July 2021. It will carry a price tag of $23,990 for the entry-level, FWD, SE model, while the range-topping limited trim with the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine and AWD will command a steep price of $39,720. In comparison, the new Ford Maverick starts out at just $19,995, and it’s coming from an automaker that knows a thing of two about trucks. It will even be offered with an FX4 package that will being with it more off-road capability, but with AWD vs. 4WD. The Santa Cruz will offer up to 275 horsepower, which isn’t bad for a smaller truck, which might be its strongest selling point as the range-topping Maverick will come with just 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged, 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder.

Battle Of The Midsize Pickup Trucks: Toyota Hilux Takes On the VW Amarok In a Drag Race

Carwow pits the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok against each other in a drag race, and the result will probably surprise you.

A drag race between two stock midsize pickup trucks is about as scientific as a drift competition with shopping carts. Pickup truck buyers are rarely interested in the performance aspect of these vehicles, but Carwow still gives us the answer to a question we never thought of asking – which is the quicker pickup truck. This time it’s the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok that line up for a quarter-mile drag and despite the two vehicles being very similar on paper, the outcome is quite decisive.

Ram’s Electric 1500 Pickup Will Arrive Late, But That Could Give It An Edge Over Ford and Chevy

Ram finally decides to throw its hat in the EV segment by announcing an electric 1500 pickup truck for 2024

After Ford brought in the F-150 Lightning and Chevy announced the electric Silverado, the only one remaining was Ram. Now, the Stellantis brand has also officially confirmed a battery-electric 1500 truck to take the three-way war to electrifying levels. The auto group celebrated an EV Day, wherein three of its brands – Dodge, Jeep, and Ram – had some big announcements. While Dodge stole the limelight with its Muscle EV news, Jeep and Ram tried to hog some attention with the Grand Cherokee 4xe and the 1500 BEV.

The Ram 1500 BEV is a long time away, with production slated to begin in 2024. But, it is still good news, and the automaker will hope to replicate its recent truck success in the EV arena, too.

After Tank Turn, Rivian Now Files Patent For K-Turn

After Tank Turn, Rivian Now Files Patent For K-Turn

This is another maneuverability function that’s similar to the Tank Turn, but seems to be a lot more practical and usable

Rivian took the internet by storm back in the day when it announced a feature that would turn the truck on a dime. Such technology was possible because you have a motor on every wheel which controls them individually. Now, the automaker has milked this hardware some more to come up with something known as a K-turn. In its essence, it is pretty much the same as the Tank Turn, but it isn’t as aggressive and won’t dig a hole if you attempt it on a soft surface.

GMC Shows off the Hummer EV's Watts to Freedom Mode To Celebrate Independence Day

GMC Shows off the Hummer EV’s Watts to Freedom Mode To Celebrate Independence Day

The WTF mode that can make a 9,000-pound vehicle sprint to 60 mph from a standstill will make you go WTF!

The Hummer models were known for their brawny appearance and gas-guzzling nature. But, GMC revived the moniker last year as a clean, sober vehicle that doesn’t have a drinking problem anymore. This stark opposite nature is still a little tough to digest, but we’re more than happy to have the Hummer badge live on. After introducing it as a supertruck in 2020, the company brought out its SUV version, too.

The nameplate aside, the 2022 Hummer EV is filled to the brim when it comes to features and technology. There’s the Crab Walk mode, Extract mode, and the Super Cruise tech to name a few. Another exciting feature is the Watts To Freedom (WTF) which is essentially a Launch Control.

To commemorate Independence Day, GMC has released a video of the Hummer supertruck’s Watts To Freedom mode in action. To see a 9,000-pound beast sprint to 60 mph from rest in three seconds is scary and exciting. A perfect name for this mode – WTF!

After Ford and Ram, Chevy Decides to Come up With an Off-Road-Ready Version of the Silverado Truck

The Silverado ZR2 off-road model will take on the Ford Tremor; not the Raptor

Chevy is taking baby steps towards competing with the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 in the off-roading, performance truck department. Out of the Big Three, Chevy is the only one not to offer a full-fledged off-road model for the Silverado. Ford has the F-150 Raptor (and Raptor R V-8 in the works), whereas Ram has the 1500 TRX. While Chevy hasn’t come up with a standalone off-roading model yet, it has teased a new trim, something similar to what Ford does with the Tremor and Ram does with the 1500 Rebel. Chevy has plans to offer the Silverado in the ZR2 outfit that will give you the freedom to take your bowtie truck off the roads without much hesitation. Well, better late than never!

The TRX and the Charger share the same V-8 Hellcat engine, but the latter makes more power and is lighter

The folks at The Fast Lane Truck took the Ram 1500 TRX and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody to a drag strip for a couple of races.

Hoonigan’s 2JZ Supra-Swapped Ford F-150 Frightening Has Sprung to Life

The Hoonigan team took it for dyno testing and it makes over a 100 horses more than the stock 2JZ engine

The yesteryear Ford F-150 Lightning was one heck of a truck, especially in its second generation. It came with a supercharged V-8 mill that was officially the world’s fastest production truck at that time, hitting a top speed of 147 mph in a run in 2003. Now, no one in their right minds would swap this engine for something else, but the folks at Hoonigan did; and we love it!
