The 2021 F-150 Raptor Doesn’t Give You The Same Bang For Your Buck Anyway

The 2021 F-150 Raptor continues to make 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque but now starts at over $65,000

Ford unveiled the 2021 F-150 back in June 2020. The 2021 F-150 Raptor should’ve made its debut then, but the company pushed it for a later date. Eight months later, the automaker finally took the wraps off it, but again withheld information regarding its power specs. Fast forward to the present day, the power outputs quietly go live on the site. As it turns out, the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will continue to make 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque! So much wait and drama for what?

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Could Make the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 Shiver With Fear

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will launch with new engines, new technology, and A LOT more power!

Toyota has managed to keep most of the 2022 Tundra close to home, with next to no information leaking out thus far. We do know that it’ll feature a familiar look, better safety equipment, and it’s supposed to be a “best in class, world beater” truck. Expected to be revealed sometime later in 2021, we have a lot of questions, but we now know there’s one thing we don’t have to worry about: Power. And that’s because the new Tundra will have a whole lot of it.

Secrets Exposed: Tesla Hasn’t Told Us The Whole Story About The Cybertruck

Tesla’s patent primarily shows the Cybertruck’s UI design, but we might have gotten to know about its range as well!

The Tesla Cybertruck was arguably one of the most anticipated vehicles of 2019. There was a constant buzz surrounding it the preceding year of its launch. Somehow, Tesla managed to keep it away from carparazzis very well. Not a single soul on earth got a glimpse of it, even when Tesla teased it at the Model Y’s launch. But sometimes, things come out in the open, like these secrets that give out a lot about the production-spec Cybertruck.

Courtesy of a patent filed by Tesla with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and an eagle-eyed Twitter user, a few things about the unconventional truck have surfaced on the internet, including its range!

The 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro comes with a new bright Electric Lime paint to make sure there’s no way you ignore it!

What’s the best way to get someone’s attention? Scream? I guess that’s what Toyota thinks because it just launched an off-road trim of a pickup truck in a bright lime shade! Neither ‘Off-road’ nor ‘pickup truck’ can be associated with a lime exterior shade. But, Toyota seems to have done that with the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro.

The 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro arrives in this new exclusive shade with some more off-road enhancements like an increased suspension lift, new shocks, etc. Sweet, huh?

Watch this Civilian Toyota Mega Cruiser in-depth review

The Toyota Mega Cruiser is basically the Japanese HUMVEE, but cooler

When you hear Toyota, some of the first words to come to mind are reliable, boring, hybrid, or if you’re into the 4X4 scene – rugged. The Toyota Land Cruiser is, to this day, one of the most iconic 4X4s out there. What most people don’t know is that there is a bigger “Cruiser”, made by Toyota – the Toyota Mega Cruiser. Chris O’Neil is an enthusiast YouTube channel, named after its creator, in which “he does stuff with interesting vehicles”. In this case, he gives a detailed overview of the obscure boxy SUV.

The Ford F-150 Lightning Could Undercut Every Other Full-Size Truck on the Market

The Ford F-150 Lightning Could Undercut Every Other Full-Size Truck on the Market

After factoring in the federal tax credits and state incentives, the F-150 Lightning could cost you less than any new gas-powered full-size truck!

It’s not been long since Ford launched the electric 2022 F-150 Lightning. There are a lot of talking points about it, but the highlight is its price. Ford had announced in the past that it isn’t looking at building EVs costing more than $100,000. This meant that the truck would top out in the high five-digit figures, but no one expected a sub-$40,000 starting price before federal tax credits. Account for the state incentives along with it and the effective price falls under $30,000 in some states!

Motor1 compiled a list of the prices after factoring in the incentives and discounts and it looks like the F-150 Lightning will be the cheapest full-size truck you can buy today!

The Ford F-150 Lightning Breaks Cover As A Sub-$40,000 Electric Truck

Some of the other accolades of the F-150 Lightning include 300-mile range, 15.5-inch touchscreen, and independent rear suspension, to name a few

In July 2019, Ford came up with a one million-pound towing stunt. That was the first time we heard anything related to its electric truck. It served as an official confirmation that Ford was working on an electric F-150 to take on the likes of the Tesla Cybertruck and the Rivian R1T. Almost two years later, the truck has finally arrived.

Ford has revived the ‘Lightning’ moniker for its electric truck. The F-150 Lightning is the quickest and the most powerful F-150 ever. The maximum payload and towing capacity are rated at 2,000- and 10,000 pounds, respectively. The biggest revelation, however, is its price. The electric Ford F-150 Lightning starts at a shade under $40,000 for the commercial trim and $53,000 for the base trim.

SVE Unveils the 700-Horsepower Yenko Silverado That Chevy Won’t Built

SVE first revived the Syclone, then built an 800-horsepower Silverado, and has now come up with a 700-horsepower V-8 Silverado

SVE has been associated with GM for a very long time. In over three decades, the aftermarket company has tuned over 65,000 vehicles. SVE made headlines when it revived the Syclone badge for Canyon-based 2019 and 2021 models.

The company even builds Silverado-based Yenko S/C editions. The company released an 800-horsepower version of the truck last year. Now, it has come up with a 710-horsepower iteration of this Yenko S/C called the California Edition. It will be available across the Silverado trim line and will be limited to just 50 examples.

Based on what we see, GM should give the team complete freedom to design its upcoming EVs

The top-shots at GM are not interested in a hardcore off-roader, but it looks like the designers are. The company’s design page on Instagram is always buzzing with sweet sketches and creative posts, but their recent sketch takes it up a notch.

It’s official. The upcoming electric Ford F-150 will be called F-150 Lightning and it will be revealed on May 19. This the automaker’s second EV, and it has used a legendary moniker in both cases. After slapping the Mach-E with the Mustang badge, Ford has now brought back the performance truck ’Lightning’ badge from the 90s and early 2000s to use it on the electrified truck.

Autotopia recently covered a customized 1968 F-100 that looks great and features a Mustang V-8 crate engine.

The Chevy C10, know in its senior years, has become the basis for a number of crazy custom projects from low-riders to extreme off-roaders. The thing is, though, that most of the examples of modified C10s in real life all the same outside of different paintjobs.

Ford To Resurrect The 'Lightning' Moniker On The Upcoming Electric F-150

Ford To Resurrect The ’Lightning’ Moniker On The Upcoming Electric F-150

It is a smart move since ’Lightning’ has a strong recall with the yesteryear Ford performance truck

Ford launched two new vehicles in the last couple of years, but we noticed patterns when it came to naming them. One is to revive an old moniker from the ashes – the Bronco – and the other one is to attach the legacy of a loved badge on its electric vehicle –the Mustang Mach-E. For its next EV, which is arguably the most important product for the Blue Oval and will pave the way for its future, the company has combined both these patterns. We’re talking about the upcoming electric F-150, which the company could call ‘Lightning’.

This 1959 Chevy Apache Work Truck Restomod Includes A V-8 Engine That Makes Over 500 Horses

It is based on a new platform, comes with an all-wheel-drive system, and features many other modern touches while looking old-school

American trucks from back in the day are some of the hottest restomod projects that aftermarket companies and individuals are taking up today. We generally see a lot of Ford F100s go through the restomod process, but here we have a truck that isn’t quite as popular. This is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache work truck that was part of the ‘Task Force’ series launched by the bowtie back in the 50s. The restomod includes putting the Apache on a new chassis, tossing in a V-8 engine, and fitting a four-wheel-drive system to make it a practical, daily driver work truck, as opposed to a pavement pickup like the yesteryear GMC Syclone.

The Raptor R has been spotted and it sounds awesome even when it’s not roaring

The world is waiting to hear about the upcoming Ford F-150 Raptor R after Ford announced it at the standard third-gen Raptor’s debut. It was only a matter of time before we would get glimpses of it, and that time has come. A video clip of the truck was uploaded to YouTube and you can see it in flesh wrapped in camouflage. While Ford managed to hide the design elements to an extent, they couldn’t keep the beast silent. You can hear the supercharged beast grunting here, and even at idle, it sounds so good. Can you at least release some audio clips of it, for the time being, Ford?

This Jeep Gladiator 6x6 Looks Armageddon-Ready

This Jeep Gladiator 6x6 Looks Armageddon-Ready

It comes with an extended cargo bed, multiple engine options, and costs thrice as much as a standard Gladiator!

There are a lot of 6x6 trucks in the market today. You’ve got iterations of the F-150 Raptor, and Ram 1500 TRX that have been given an extra axle and a pair of wheels. However, Jeep Gladiator seems to be a popular option amongst aftermarket companies for this mod. We’ve seen builds from Apocalypse Manufacturing,So-Flo, and even the Rezvani Hercules, and now we have another entry to this Gladiator-based 6x6 truck by Next Level Offroad.

The California-based company has come up with a build of its own. It doesn’t look as monstrous as the others and is actually one of the cleanest builds we’ve seen.

An Electric Toyota Tundra? It Could Happen Sooner Than You Think

Toyota has finally confirmed electrification plans for its truck lineup and we have a hunch it’ll start with the Tundra

The truck segment is prepping for electrification at an unimaginable pace, courtesy of specialist EV companies like Tesla and Rivian. Mainstream car brands are also throwing their hats in the ring (like they have any other option!), and the latest one to do so is Toyota. The automaker confirmed that the company is planning to electrify its truck lineup. This is the first time the Japanese automaker has spoken about pickup truck electrification. There’s no word on which truck gets the ion shot first, but whichever it is, expect it to come sooner than expected.

The Story of Turbo Titan - Chevy’s Long-Lost Gas Turbine Truck

The Chevy Turbo Titan III almost made it to production, then it disappeared

With the latest and greatest in gas turbine engine technology, lateral pop-out headlights, and the weirdness of twin-dial steering, the Turbo Titan III was Chevrolet’s attempt at creating the truck of the future.

Well, keep reading to find out how one of the coolest-named trucks ever made was built to revolutionize the way America hauled cargo around the country, how it came THIS CLOSE to becoming a series-production rig, and how it disappeared without a trace.

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!
