Is This A Real Prototype Jeep Pickup, Or Just A Home-Made One-Off?

A reader spotted this single-cab Jeep Wrangler JK pickup truck with manufacturer plates in the Detroit area this morning. It's probably a product of the aftermarket, but maybe, just maybe, a Chrysler employee is field testing the very thing many of us have been dreaming of for ages: a modern, factory, Wrangler pickup. » 8/22/14 6:28pm Friday 6:28pm

Ford Everest SUVs Spied In Nebraska: More Evidence They'll Be Sold Here?

A pair of camouflaged Ford Everests, the small-but-tough SUVs Ford sells in global markets, were spotted testing in Nebraska last week.

Ford Everest Spied In Colorado, Is It (Or The Ranger) Coming To America?

What could only be a Ford Everest in camouflage was spotted this morning at Mt. Evans, Colorado by two different readers. We reckon it's only here for high-altitude testing, but it's possible the off-roadable SUV might be headed to the US.

Camouflaging The Mustang Was A Daunting Task Says Ford

Camouflaging a prototype may look easy (ie. slapping on some camouflage and bob's your uncle), but it's actually very complicated. Wrapping the car too much might affect its aerodynamics and performance, wrapping too less might reveal the cars design.
