I try to avoid lobbing clichés like “holy grail” and “ultimate barn find” around too often, but we’ve got a freaking 1983 Toyota four-wheel drive manual transmission single cab pickup truck with less than 8,000 miles on our hands here, people. It’s time to freak out.
I know that the specs listed about trucks are just long columns of boring numbers, but those numbers actually do have some meaning in the messy real world. The amount of weight you can comfortably place in the bed of the truck, the payload, that’s one of those numbers. Even though neither that boulder or that Ranger…
Listen. I didn’t want to have to be the one to say this, but I’m going to be the one to say it. Big pickup trucks should not be allowed on the roads as a casual everyday driving vehicle.
GMC just debuted a new version of the 2019 GMC Sierra called the “Elevation,” and not only is it damn good looking, but it also comes stock with an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, and can be optioned with an “X31" off-road package.
What do you get when you want to lunch on a Raptor? You get a Tyrannosaurus Rex, naturally. This is the Ram TRX, complete with at least 575 horsepower, and Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles just confirmed it’s going into production.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Alex wrecked his Prius, but he is using this as an opportunity to get what he has always wanted: a pickup truck. The only hangup is that his budget is tight, and we all know finding a good truck for cheap is not easy. What car should he buy?
Yesterday, I was driving on the highway and saw a flatbed hauling a filthy, rusty old pickup truck. That’s not uncommon where I live. This truck, though, was uncommon: it had a pair of tall exhaust pipes, wood panels on the sides of the bed, behind the big rear fenders, and, on the doors, a big decal that read “LI’L…
Pickup trucks! They carry a lot of people these days. Just look at the Volkswagen Tanoak concept. It seats two up front and three comfortably in the back. That’s a lot of people! What is the correct amount of people? Don’t worry, after much science I have come to the right number.
The 2019 GMC Sierra’s carbon fiber cargo bed and crazy six-way tailgate are the real headlines from the truck’s debut, but for a small group of particularly particular people, the new truck’s steering wheel is worth getting excited about too.
The 2019 GMC Sierra is, as ever, an upscale variant of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Today GM announced what’s in the latest version, and more interestingly, how it’s different from its Chevy counterpart. Actually, it’s got one thing that makes it different from every other pickup ever.
The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor has finally been revealed in its final form, and even though we don’t have a full spec sheet yet we can compare quite a few metrics between this and its big American brother the F-150 Raptor.
We’ve already geeked out a little over the 2019 Ram 1500’s interior when we first saw it at the Detroit Auto Show. After getting a little more time to climb around the cab, we found even more interesting stuff.
The 2019 Ram 1500 has a new mild hybrid system, a glorious optional 12-inch touchscreen display, and storage cubbies all over the interior. But that interior is also hiding some neat design easter eggs that call back to classic truck stuff.
We’ve known that the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck, called the “DT” platform, will get some significant design changes. But now we have a lot more info on what’s under the refreshed sheetmetal.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss showed its face to the world in December, but tonight the covers are off the entire Silverado lineup and the big news is: Chevy’s half-ton truck is getting a 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine and a whole bunch of aluminum.
A redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 is slated to bow on Monday at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, but a nice unmasked front quarter picture of one looking fresh off an assembly line has already popped up on Reddit. Check it out.
I’m not sure what you’re doing or how your day has gone, but I’m pretty sure whatever’s going on will be made better by just looking at this ad for this beautifully-realized Volkswagen-powered Isetta truck. Holy crap, that thing looks fantastic.
An uncamo’d, production-spec-looking new Ford Ranger was spotted at what appeared to be a photo or commercial shoot in the off-roader’s paradise of Moab, Utah. Now that the 2018 Wrangler has landed, this can be our new 4x4 fixation for a bit.
With five windows wide open and ocean breeze flowing through the cab, our 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro bounded over Pismo Beach’s dunes like a golden retriever in hot pursuit of a tennis ball. No special “sand mode.” No fancy forced induction. Just a snarling V8 and an overstuffed driver’s seat. And it felt so right.
