A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works

A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works

Ford Australia wants to build one as it sees a lot of potential for a Ranger-based Desert Runner in the Land Down Under

The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.

Toyota Elevates The Tundra Pickup Truck With A New Flagship Trim Called The ‘Capstone’

The Tundra Capstone will come with the hybrid engine and in the CrewMax body style as standard

The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out a few months ago with an insane amount of changes. The Japanese truck is known for its tough build and reliability, and those were a couple of reasons why the automaker was able to milk it for 14 long years without any major change. But, the company brought in the new Tundra for the 2022 model year with a lot of changes on the outside, inside, and under the hood. Just when it looked like the hype behind the truck had gone down, Toyota decided to do something about it.

The automaker revealed a new flagship trim in the already crowded lineup called the ‘Capstone’. It will be the apex trim in Tundra’s portfolio and is expected to start at over $60,000. The top-grade will arrive in Spring this year.

We’ve seen trailer-like range extenders before, but this one here transforms the Thundertruck into a 6x6 behemoth!

EV-olution is at its peak and we now have an electric offering in every genre one can think of. However, there was one untapped niche – the 6x6 vehicles – that only had vehicles with big, burly engines. However, it’s set to change, thanks to the Thundertruck. The Thundertruck is an electric off-roader with some impressive specs, but what makes it even better is how getting a range extender for it turns it into a 6x6 truck. Crazy, isn’t it?

For almost ten years - from 2001 to 2011 - when the first and last series of the movie was released, Daniel Radcliffe’s (aka Harry Potter) means of transportation was the broom.

Is The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus Really Worth $1.1 Million?

Ever since its official launch everyone agreed that the new generation Ford Ranger is quite a departure from the old Ranger. While its design is not a huge improvement over what we were used with, the new Ranger is fresh and its Maverick inspired look fits it very well.
