This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed

This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed

A lowered 1956 Chevy 3100 with a 383 stroker V-8 is not your typical work truck

Custom cars are awesome, but what’s even crazier is custom pick-up trucks, especially when they are from the 1950s. A perfect example of that is this 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Sidestep, built by “Customs by Lopez”. While the Chevy 3100 was part of the Chevy Task Force, also known as the “Blue Chip Series” in GMC dealerships, it started out as a humble, but rugged work truck. However, it has been transformed into a mean, rubber-burning machine.

Kia Plots Two Electric Pickup Trucks to Take on the Big Boys

Kia Plots Two Electric Pickup Trucks to Take on the Big Boys

It’s not going to happen until roughly 2027, but Kia is really going to get into the electric pickup market

Hyundai and Genesis are planning to launch a total of 17 EVs between both companies by the end of the decade, so it should be little surprise that Kia is also increasing its efforts – they are all related, after all. There’s an oddity to this announcement, though, as Kia is also planning to launch not one, but two zero-emission electric pickup trucks.

A Dodge RAM 1500 TRX That Can Keep Up With 10-Second Mustangs In The 1/4 Mile

A Dodge RAM 1500 TRX That Can Keep Up With 10-Second Mustangs In The 1/4 Mile

This physics-defying truck packs some serious punch and is designed with one goal, to decimate the 1/4 mile

The RAM TRX 1500 is already a pretty serious truck, to begin with, and is primarily designed as a vehicle to eat anything that you can throw at it out on the trails. What it’s not designed for is to go flat out on a drag strip.

However, there are exceptions, like the one we’re featuring today. Meet the Big Blue, a TRX that has been turned up to an eleven.

If These Sketches Are Anything To Go By, Then The Ram 1500 BEV Might Be The Most Beautiful Looking Truck!

If These Sketches Are Anything To Go By, Then The Ram 1500 BEV Might Be The Most Beautiful Looking Truck!

Ram put out some teasers to assure us it hasn’t forgotten about the electric 1500 pickup truck

The electric pickup truck market is booming. You’ve got the GMC Hummer EV, the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, and many other new players. Even the pioneers of the current generation like Ford and Chevy have thrown in their hats and showcased what the truck will look like. But, one big name that’s missing is Ram. The company officially announced the electric Ram 1500 sometime mid-last year. Fast forward to the present day, we have got another set of teasers. Yeah, just teasers; not a glimpse at the real deal.

But, all that is forgiven at the moment because we are in awe of how stunning the Ram 1500 EV could turn out to be. What we see are still sketches, but if Ram can translate it into the production version without a whole lot of changes, it might be the best-looking truck on the market when it comes out.

Do You Want Some Good News? Well, The Ranger Raptor is FINALLY Coming To The U.S.!!

Ford launched the new Ranger Raptor and the company’s CEO has confirmed that it is coming Stateside

Ford launched the new Ranger Raptor earlier this week. It seems to be a mighty improvement over the outgoing model. The chassis has been tweaked, the suspension setup is upgraded, and it comes with a new engine option. Apart from these things, it also comes with an updated exterior and interior.

But, here’s an even bigger news. The Ranger Raptor fans in the U.S. and Canada have something to rejoice. After being forbidden in these two countries for the longest time, Ford’s CEO announced that the 2023 Ranger Raptor will be sold here. How many of you are buying it?

The All-New 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor Debuts With A V-6 Engine, Upgraded Mechanicals, And New Tech

The new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is coming to the U.S. in 2023!

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ford’s been on a roll since the last two years. Forget about the facelifts and refreshes; I’m talking about the blockbuster hits. We’ve had the new F-150, the resurrection of the Bronco, the F-150 Raptor, the announcement of the F-150 Raptor R, the F-150 Lightning, the Bronco Raptor, and now, the Ranger Raptor. We have spotted it in the past, but with camouflage. The new Ranger Raptor will be based on the new 2023 Ranger – that is also one of the launches in recent times and replaced the aging T-6 Ranger – and will further elevate the company’s Raptor brand.

The new Ranger Raptor is a huge improvement over the model it replaces. For starters, it comes with a 3.0-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine that makes a shade under 300 horses. Ford has upgraded the suspensions setup and introduced more tech as well. But, the biggest question – will it come Stateside? The answer is YES! Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, confirmed that the new Ranger Raptor will be coming Stateside in 2023!

You Can Now Make Your Own Accessories For The Ford Maverick

Thanks to these geometry files for the pickup’s tethers

If there’s one vehicle that singlehandedly revitalized the compact pickup segment, that would be the Ford Maverick. Thanks to its affordable price tag and ingenious practicality, the Maverick has proven to be enough of a hit for Ford to suspend orders temporarily. And, to make ownership even more fun, the Blue Oval brand has finally released the geometry files for the pickup’s Ford Integrated Tether System (FITS).

There’s no denying the fact that Ford has recently pushed out a ton of vehicles that were a homerun success. The F-150 Lightning will eventually lead the pack for Ford’s electric vehicle (EV) push and sales of the Mustang Mach-E have also been successful. The Maverick compact pickup is also one such vehicle, and such was the craze for it initially that Ford had to suspend orders for the 2022 model year. But, the company plans to open up the order books later this year. Will you be booking one?

Watch The Rivian R1T Show-Off All Its Drive Modes In This Video

This video is the perfect guide on how every drive mode works on the Rivian R1T

After 75 Years, Ford Has Built Its 40 Millionth F-Series Pickup For The U.S.

Ford once again showcases the F-Series pickup’s dominance

Tug-of-War: Can The Ram 3500 HD Tug Both, The Ford F-150 Raptor And Chevrolet Silverado, At The Same Time?

Rare Pokemon Spotted In The Wild: The 2024 Mitsubishi L200

Rare Pokemon Spotted In The Wild: The 2024 Mitsubishi L200

The 2024 Mitsubishi L200 has been spied winter testing and it seems longer than before

It’s not every day a Mitsubishi vehicle gets spied. The company’s pickup truck, that’s sold under many guises worldwide, was recently spied winter testing near the Arctic circle with some skin on. This L200 is potentially a next-gen truck, but the changes don’t seem to be a lot. Up front, the headlights are tweaked a little. It carries the same body, so other changes are minimal. There are some changes at the rear, though. The exhausts are positioned differently and the rear bumper has been modified for it.

It also has a slightly longer wheelbase, which is evident because the rear axle doesn’t fit exactly in the rear wheel case. This could mean it is riding on a new platform that also underpins the Nissan Navara. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance could lead to a lot of part-sharing between the Navara and the L200. It could either be the L200 borrowing parts from the Navara, or vice versa. There are absolutely no details about the L200 at this point, but going by the longer wheelbase and the repositioned exhaust tips, there could be a lot of mechanical changes gracing the next-gen L200. Given that the current model’s facelift came out in 2019, the next-gen model could be revealed sometime next year and go on sale from 2024.

Check out the gallery below and let us know what you are expecting from the upcoming L200/Triton/Strada.

RAM 1500 TRX Takes On An A90 Supra In A 1/4 Mile Face-off

RAM 1500 TRX Takes On An A90 Supra In A 1/4 Mile Face-off

The Supra on paper has half the power of the TRX, but also weighs half as much. This RWD vs AWD shootout is closer than you think

The Drag Racing and Car Stuff Channel put out yet another super video over the weekend, where a RAM 1500 TRX took on an A90 Supra over the ¼ Mile. Now, as usual, I can’t really confirm the exact specs, but as with anything that hits the drag strip, it’s unlikely that the two contenders we have here are stock. Regardless, we’ll look at the baseline figures so that we can at least have a datum to work off of.

A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works

Ford Australia wants to build one as it sees a lot of potential for a Ranger-based Desert Runner in the Land Down Under

The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.
