The 2017 Ford Raptor is redesigned, re-engined, and it looks great in pictures. But now it’s faced with the challenge of proving itself all over again. So Ford is putting it through six major off-road races this year, in stock condition. Sort of.
Some ambitious owners have already slapped new mufflers on the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but MagnaFlow is claiming the first true dyno-tuned 50-state legal exhaust system for the new truck..
Remember the Mercedes pickup truck we all got so worked up on then forgot about? Based on everything we’ve heard it’s still headed to production within a few years, and a fresh batch of rumors has just been dumped on my desk.
