The Tesla Model X is the world’s best $150,000 minivan, and with that sort price you might expect some nifty features. Features like a Bioweapon Defense Mode, perhaps, which Tesla says can actually save you in the event of a biological attack. Here’s how you turn it on.
The, uh, rough-around-the-edges reality television show Diesel Brothers is coming under fire from a group of environmentally focused doctors in Utah, who are threatening legal action against the TV personalities because of alleged illegal modifications to diesel vehicles. You can’t see it through the internet but I’m…
The Jeep Wrangler’s seven-slatted grille is one of the most famous car-faces on the road. With a new design on the horizon, we’re all wondering how much Jeep is going to mess with it. New spy shots give us some insight.
One Canadian Chrysler dealer had dream: to cram a 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 into a Ram 1500 pickup truck. Yes, that’s 707 horsepower sent to a solid rear axle on something that isn’t a drag car. I have just one word for this dealer: hero.
If there’s a consistent theme with Tesla’s announcements, it’s one of missed deadlines. Even Tesla’s latest Master Plan Part II—where they said wanted an all-electric big rig—arrived a few days late. Meanwhile, Daimler followed up their electric big rig announcement this week with photos of an actual one already…
The phrase “throwing spaghetti at a wall” refers to someone not knowing what path to take and frantically exhausting every option in an attempt to solve a particular issue, hoping something sticks. When applied to automakers, this action can either save or destroy a company that already may be on the edge of disaster.…
The world is filled with all sorts of capable and interesting cars, all ferrying us humans from A to B and back again. WRONG. There is only one car. It is the 1990s Toyota Land Cruiser FJ80.
At this point you know the Nissan Titan and its heavier-duty brother the Titan XD are refreshed and repowered for 2016. But this is the first time we’ve seen them in any configuration besides a full four-door crew cab.
This week I’m in beautiful Colorado running around with Ford’s 2017 heavy duty F-250, F-350 and some F-450 pickup trucks. These models have major changes to the frame, engine and body design for the first time since pretty much 1999. So what do you want to know about them?
Small trucks are good, because they are both trucks (1) and small (2). But which one was the most good?
If you want the new trucktracular twin-turbo V6 2017 Ford Raptor—and really, who doesn’t?—here’s how much it’s apparently going to reduce your bank account.
There’s some musical chairs going on with a few of our favorite global-market small trucks never destined to come to the U.S. The Mazda BT-50, currently based on the Ford Ranger, will be based on the Isuzu D-Max, which is basically a Chevy Colorado, for its next iteration. Make sense?
The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has placed an order for militarized Toyota Land Cruisers, Hiluxes and Ford Rangers to use as low-profile but battle-survivable field vehicles. That’s provided the prototypes pass muster in military evaluations, of course.
The 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks, which includes F-250, F-350, and the pickup truck version of the F-450, have been fully redesigned for the first time since pogs were currency and your dad had a pager. And the new capability claims, well, they’re big.
When Elon Musk finally emerged from pulling his small-amounts-of-crack-fueled all-nighter and finally delivered his new Master Plan Part II, it proved to be full of some interesting ideas. Of those ideas, I think the plan for Tesla to build a semi heavy-duty truck is by far the smartest, and offers some really…
The Ferret Scout Car is an armored and turreted war machine designed in the 1940s. More than 4,000 copies in some 60 variants are said to have been made, and few of them are even still in military service. But only one has a Chevy V8, long-travel shocks and a freaking winch cannon. Oh, and a racing champion at the…
I just spent a few days at the headquarters of Omix-ADA, the world’s largest aftermarket Jeep parts supplier, and I nearly fainted.
Every real fly fisherman knows all about enjoying hard liquor and finger sandwiches on fine china and stitched leather. It’s really about time we got a Bentley Bentayga worthy of this pastime.
