It’s a good long weekend for a good long Nissan Terrano 4Door Turbo Wide R3M. Get out there, folks, and put those three-spoke wheels to good use.
Last week Toyota announced its revised 2019 TRD Pro lineup which basically puts better suspensions on the venerable Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner. All three will come in a color we haven’t seen since the FJ Cruiser, and the 4Runner gets one more carryover from Toyota’s beloved but abandoned Wrangler rival.
So much of truck-bragging is done backwards, I think. Most truck owners, if inclined to brag, like to talk about how big their engines are, how many cylinders, and so on, as though the sheer size of the numbers they’re spewing makes them tough. I maintain the opposite is true; doing a job with as little as possible is…
The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is the most expensive vehicle in Toyota’s lineup by a massive margin. This model’s sales numbers are so low that it’s unlikely you’ll ever see one in person in America. And yet, it still exists. This week we’ll find out why. Or, at least, whether or not it deserves its strange…
The previous G63 on full acceleration felt like being in a house falling off a cliff and it did 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. The new 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63, with 577 horsepower from AMG’s ubiquitous 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, does the run in 4.4.
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.
Toyota has coyly confirmed there will be “new” 2019 TRD Pro off-road models, plural, teasing this picture of a Tacoma with a factory snorkel(!) and implying that the 4Runner and/or Tundra will get some new off-road goodies soon as well. As ever, I’m tentatively intrigued.
Do you like comfort? Do you like utility? Do you like comfortable utility with ample room and packaging? Well feast your eyes upon the third-generation Sprinter van, now with a gasoline engine for us Americans and a lower starting price.
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.
Back in 1990, General Motors stuck a 7.4-liter V8 into a 1500 chassis Chevy pickup and created an icon. The 454 SS was little more than black paint, a red logo on the side and dual exhausts rumbling out the back, but it was great in a way that I can’t imagine being reproduced today.
There’s a lot more going on with the redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado pickup than its alien grille and enormous “Z71” emblem. We took a close look at the truck with one of the engineers who put it together at the Detroit Auto Show, and you’re coming along to check it out.
Bless you, Mississippi, and your ultra chill rules about what qualifies as “street legal.”
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.
The 2019 Ram 1500 is getting a mild hybrid system, with an electric motor boosting all gas V6 and some V8 trucks. Projected gains are significant, but don’t expect record-smashing mpg.
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.
I can barely convince my friends to go see a movie. The Rolling Death Van Club in Portland, by contrast, is able to coordinate meet up after meet up, helping each other buy, fix up and run the coolest old vans in the country. Looking at all of these tattoo’d, pierced survivor van owners, suddenly I feel like the piece…
There is something strangely but deeply fascinating about seeing huge off-road race trucks get completely caught up by a large sand dune.
