Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?
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!

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone
The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.

Oh, what a sight that must be!

The New Ford F-150 Raptor Is Allergic to Electrification
Ford has been busy with its trucks lately. First came with the 2021 F-150, which also featured a hybrid model in the lineup. Recently, Ford unveiled the F-150 Raptor as well, and announced one with a V-8 engine coming next year. Then there’s the electric F-150 in the works and we should hear more about it soon. Given how all vehicles are getting electrified, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that the Raptor’s next in line.

Ford’s Inspiration for the F-150 Raptor’s Exhaust Will Blow Your Mind
The third-gen F-150 Raptor debuted a few days back and it came with quite a few features that make it an exciting off-road truck. Apart from the 37-inch tires, the truck’s exhaust system has garnered a lot of attention. You would naturally assume that Ford is trying to keep up with the competition and perhaps tore a page out of the Ram TRX’s book, but the inspiration for the exhaust note comes from two completely unrelated products that the Raptor has nothing in common with – The Nissan GT-R and the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV.
