A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan

A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan

The Ram 1500 TRX taking on the Lamborghini Huracan EVO and keeping up with it is a sight to behold!

The Ram 1500 TRX is primarily an off-road performance truck, but with specs like a supercharged V-8, 700+ horses, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, etc. there’s no reason why it shouldn’t hit the drag strip. So, Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ decided to have it go up against a Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD for a series of drag races. The EVO is obviously a lot more agile and suited to the track, but there’s a catch – the TRX isn’t stock. It puts out 1,000 horses; almost 30-percent more than its stock output! Which car do you have your money on?

This AMG-Powered Toyota Hilux Proves Toyota Pick-Up Trucks Can Be Exciting

This AMG-powered Toyota Hilux is the unholy Creation of a mad man from South Africa

When you think Toyota, you don’t really think big power, unless we are talking about a Supra. The same goes for their SUVs and pick-up trucks, which although dependable, will not “tickle the pickle” when it comes to performance. With that said, Quentin Boylan from Praetoria, South Africa, decided to make his Toyota Hilux a lot more exciting.

Ford Just Aborted the Ford Bronco Pickup Project That Never Existed

The Bronco pickup was just a thought until now, but we are still disappointed to hear its canceled

The way the Ford Bronco turned out, it feels like it was conceived with a sole purpose in mind – to kill the Jeep Wrangler. So, naturally, everyone expected it to target even the Gladiator, the Wrangler-based pickup truck, by eventually launching a Bronco-based pickup truck. But, as it turns out, the rumored truck is canceled and the Gladiator will live to fight another day.

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a true compact pickup, and the first one since might be an EV!

A new rumor circulated the web says that Nissan is working on a new EV, but not just any EV – it’s reported a compact electric pickup truck. It’s not just the size and motivation that would make such a model unique, but the fact that it will have zero competition if it’s launched soon enough. Sounds crazy, right? Well it is, but maybe crazy is exactly what the industry needs right now, and it won’t be the first time Nissan created its own segment based on the compact pickup truck.

The Alpha Motors Superwolf Electric Pickup Just Created A New Niche

The Alpha Motors Superwolf Electric Pickup Just Created A New Niche

The Alpha Superwolf might be the first pickup Truck built with serious electric off-roading in mind

The notion of an EV pick-up truck may be disturbing for some, but that doesn’t deter car companies from churning out such vehicles. The Ford F150 Lightning, GMC Hummer, Rivian R1T, and Tesla Cybertruck, are only a few of the upcoming propositions. There is, however, another company that seems to be hell-bent on giving us a full EV lineup. Alpha Motors brings a fresh alternative to the EV pickup truck niche. After their Wolf (single cab) and Wolf + (crew cab), we now have the Alpha Superwolf – a crew cab version with proper full-size doors. But that’s not all the Superwolf brings to the table.

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.

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.

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.
