What Do You Want to Know About the Volkswagen Amarok?

Let me get this out of the way right now: the Chicken Tax is bad and dumb for preventing us from getting good little trucks like the Volkswagen Amarok. It should die. I’m spending the week in an Amarok, camping out at the Nürburgring and flooring it on the autobahn like a maniac. What would […]

2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water

The real big news about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport is the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid trim, which can apparently drive 31 miles on its battery alone.

A 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Pulling an Airstream Basecamp Is the Best Version of ‘Camping’

A pickup truck with a silver Airstream trailer behind it is quintessential Americana. That’s as true today as it was 50 years ago, except now the experience can be ridiculously comfortable with a 2018 Ford F-150 diesel and a downright futuristic Airstream Basecamp trailer.Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited Luxury Truck Gets the Raptor’s 450 HP Engine

The 2018 Ford F-150 is still available with a good old fashioned V8, but the top engine option is the turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Even better than that is the High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, but you can only get that in the Raptor off-road truck—until 2019, when you’ll be able to get the big […]

The Nissan Frontier Replacement You Can’t Have in America Is a Solid Truck

The 2018 Nissan Frontier can be the cheapest new pickup truck in America, undercutting largely because it hasn’t been redesigned since 2004. That’s not the case outside the U.S. though, where the Navara has replaced it. Here’s what America’s missing in Nissan’s latest diesel-powered mid-sized pickup.Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

A Bunch Of European Truck Racers Out-America’d Me At The Nürburgring

While the high-tech Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo was trying to set a new lap time record on the Nürburgring’s insanely long Nordschleife course, I couldn’t help being distracted by the action happening on over on the grand prix track. Big, rowdy, diesel-belching race trucks were sliding around the curve at the end of the…Read more… […]

We May Have Found The Perfect Pickup Truck

I try to avoid lobbing clichés like “holy grail” and “ultimate barn find” around too often, but we’ve got a freaking 1983 Toyota four-wheel drive manual transmission single cab pickup truck with less than 8,000 miles on our hands here, people. It’s time to freak out.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Volvo Trucks Demonstrates That One Truck Can Control Other Trucks And It’s Both Impressive And Boring To Watch

Sometimes, boring is good. When you’re dealing with 70,000 pound double-trailer FedEx trucks, boring isn’t just good, it’s fantastic. In the world of trucking, excitement usually means expensive or dangerous trouble. That’s how you could tell that Volvo’s relatively boring public demonstration of truck platooning was… Read more…

I Certainly Didn’t Expect This Vintage Work Truck To Fly This Well

The video was just titled “Rally Truck Jump.” All of those things are relevant to my interests. I’ll click. I’ll watch. Even if it’s a garbage vertical video, I’m there, dude. I’ll watch all the sweet jumps. But I certainly didn’t expect to see a vintage work truck pretending to be Colin McRae’s Subaru here. […]

Watch A Boulder Remind A Ford Ranger Owner That Payload Capacities Are A Real Thing

I know that the specs listed about trucks are just long columns of boring numbers, but those numbers actually do have some meaning in the messy real world. The amount of weight you can comfortably place in the bed of the truck, the payload, that’s one of those numbers. Even though neither that boulder or […]

This Hacked-Up Off-Road Buggy Is The Greatest BMW X5 Of All Time

The BMW X5! Scourge of school drop-off zones! Bimmer’s big behemoth! A true German luxury crossover if there ever was one.
