Canter Guts Is The Best Truck Name Ever And Could Save Mitsubishi 

It's no secret that Mitsubishi is sort of struggling here in the US market. America hasn't contracted i-MEV mania like everybody (well, technically, nobody) predicted, and it's not like anything else is flying off the lots. They need to do something radical, and the good news is they already have it: the Canter Guts. » 3/10/15 6:10pm 3/10/15 6:10pm

How to Turn Your New Car into an Adventuremobile

I just bought the first car I've owned in 13 years and decided to break it in properly over the weekend. Ingredients for this adventure included: Death Valley, being naked around your friends and a bunch of crusty hippies, hot springs, Unimogs full of twinks, mushrooms and 125 miles of off-roading. » 2/16/15 7:46pm 2/16/15 7:46pm

36 Hours of Glaciers and Steam in Iceland

I just visited Iceland for the first time! But, due to airport chaos, I was only there for exactly 36 hours. Here's what I learned from my short trip, camping out on ice and dunking myself in the country's steaming hot springs. » 2/02/15 5:14pm 2/02/15 5:14pm

Madison Bumgarner Has No Idea Where His Truck Is

Madison Bumgarner was given a Chevy truck with "um, you know technology and stuff" for winning the World Series MVP. Considering that Bumgarner once described his offseason as consisting of "Get up, feed animals, eat lunch, play catch with my cousin, feed animals, eat, go to bed," he seems like the kind of guy that… » 11/04/14 12:22am 11/04/14 12:22am

Driving a truck off-road is the second most fun thing you'll ever do. After riding a motorcycle off-road, of course. Here's how you can start doing it, even if you don't currently drive the world's most capable vehicle.

These 8 tools can save your ass if you off-road solo

It's Friday, and you're "home sick" with something in the driveway that gnaws on boulders when it's bored, like this freakishly capable 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X that we just took to Windrock OHV park. But no one else can come out and play, so you're going solo. » 8/21/14 10:30am 8/21/14 10:30am

Ford Super Duty prototype melts down in the desert

Prototypes break. That's the whole point. Something fails, and instead of Joe Public cursing at a service manager for an hour, it's an engineer cursing at a clipboard, and muttering about all the paperwork she'll have to file to fix the issue. Sometimes, though, the failure is more spectacular.

This 2016 Ford Super… » 8/04/14 10:57am 8/04/14 10:57am

Truck shoots out neat smoke rings of fire as its engine explodes

I don't know why this happened (or if the truck somehow stumbled upon some secret Mario Kart item that lets it shoot out fiery smoke rings like a red shell) but it's such a cool effect. The smoke that blows out of the truck's engine forms perfect o rings and then bursts into flames. » 7/29/14 12:07am 7/29/14 12:07am

How To Live Out Of Your Truck In The Woods

For much of the year, I live out of my pickup truck in Northern Alberta. I do it for work, but you could live in a truck as a way to explore the world or just save money on rent. Here's how. » 7/24/14 5:34pm 7/24/14 5:34pm

3 Words: Roof Mounted Exhaust

Italian Francesco Zefferino Sbarro—known as Franco Sbarro—is an interesting man. Starting as a mechanic, he gradually worked his way into Scuderia Filipinetti, a Swiss race team. Using strong cars, they competed in Formula 1 and sports car racing, with drivers like Jim Clark, Phil Hill, Ronnie Peterson, Jo Siffert,… » 6/12/14 4:45pm 6/12/14 4:45pm

The V8 Pickup Truck Is On Life Support

If you're a fan of cylinders, I have some bad news to bear. Your average, run-of-the-mill pickup truck on the road these days likely has a V6, since more and more buyers are going smaller and straying away from V8s. » 5/02/14 7:00pm 5/02/14 7:00pm

2014 Lexus GX 460: The Truck Yeah! Review

Like its close cousin the Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus GX 460 really feels like a truck thanks to body-on-frame construction. I've never seen a Lexus on a trail, but the GX's shocks feel soft enough to absorb Trophy Truck jumps. That makes turning an oceanic experience, and makes me wonder who this SUV is actually for. » 4/28/14 4:34pm 4/28/14 4:34pm

How Ford Crammed A Mind-Blowing Movie Theater Into A Van

From the outside it looks like a normal Ford Transit van, but on the inside there's a private movie theater decked out with its own tablet-controlled media server, drop-down screen, high-def projector, and ridiculously nice seating. Oh, and did we mention the built-in bar? You're gonna want the bar. » 4/18/14 1:20pm 4/18/14 1:20pm

2014 Toyota 4Runner Limited: The Truck Yeah! Review

The 2014 Toyota 4Runner is one of the last SUVs sold in America that you could still call "off-road oriented," and it never lets you forget it. I enjoyed driving it, but I'm not sure I'd want to live with it. » 4/14/14 12:33pm 4/14/14 12:33pm

U-Hauls At I-80 Self Storage In Lincoln: Everything You Need To Know

Trucks and Crossovers are Not Just for Morons

Trucks (including crossovers and SUVs) will very likely surpass car sales this year. The "crossover" craze has been going on for about 10 years or so, but if you ask some people on the internet the vast majority of truck and crossover buyers are just "idiots who think they need something they don't." This superiority… » 3/16/14 2:21pm 3/16/14 2:21pm

This Futuristic Truck Was Actually Designed By Walmart

With 7,000 tractor trailers currently in its fleet, it makes sense that Walmart would have a vested interest in designing more efficient delivery vehicles. The company's new ultra-aerodynamic Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience—or WAVE—concept is lighter and more fuel efficient than other trucks on the market, and can… » 3/04/14 11:53am 3/04/14 11:53am
