The Chevy Silverado Will Finally Have a Cool Tailgate

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
First, it was the war of whos got the biggest grille. Now the focus has shifted to tailgates. The main unique selling points of pickup trucks are cargo beds. While there isnt much you can do in that aspect apart from offering different types of Tonneau covers, or illumination, or different material for the base. Ram and GMC changed the game when they launch tailgates that can be used more efficiently. These tailgates became the talk of the town, but... [read more]

Ford F-250 - Driven

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for over four decades now, and this legacy seems sufficient to introduce it. The company has a range of pickup trucks, ranging from light-duty to heavy-duty and for varied purposes. The list is exhaustive, but the bottom line is that if you need a full-size pickup truck, no matter what the budget or usage pattern, Ford has an offering for you, right from F-150 to the F-750.

NASCAR at Le Mans: When a Dodge Charger and Ford Torino Raced in Europe

They're going to run what? Where? For how long? This was likely a common reaction when it was announced that two full-figured NASCAR stockers were going to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1976. Wasn't that a race in a faraway land called France, contested only by funny little furrin' cars? No, not since 1966, anyway, when Henry Ford II went there with his all-conquering GT program and the notion of trumping Enzo Ferrari at his own... [read more]

Jaguar's Late 20th Century Woes: From Failed Le Mans Bid to Management's Missteps

The 1955 Le Mans race is grimly remembered for Mercedes driver Pierre Leveghs horrific crash on the pit straight, which claimed the lives of more than 80 spectators. But its an event that also deeply affected Jaguar : The only son of company founder Sir William Lyons, John, was killed in a car crash en route to the race. John Lyons was just 25 years old when he died, and it is by no means certain he would have succeeded... [read more]

A Brief History of OverlandingAussie Style

Overlanding has become a thing in America. Before the coronavirus pandemic tapped the brakes, people all over the country were jumping into their 4x4s and taking the road less traveled, turning away from the interstates and the neon-lit desolation of cheap hotels and fast food joints, journeying instead along the quiet back roads and trails that still crisscross the country. Overlanding has made the voyage as important as the destination. Where I grew up, it always was. Australia is about... [read more]

The Electric Ford F-150 Has Been Teased Looking Ugly As Sin

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
Ford recently revealed a teaser image of the electric F-150 while announcing the companys new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. From the looks of it, Ford seems to have followed Rivian and Teslas footsteps to come up with a bold truck that doesnt look to share a lot of similarity with the internal combustion-engined crop of trucks. Its too soon to comment, but it looks, well, weird.

The New Range Rover EV and Jaguar XJ EV Delayed, But Only By a Little

This Radio-Controlled Ford F450 Dually Is The Workhorse of the RC World

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
Electrification has struck the pickup truck segment, but heavy-duty trucks are yet to be powered by batteries. However, CEN Racing has developed an electric F-450 and we are loving it. It comes with all the heavy-duty goodies youd expect, like a four-wheel-drive system, dually-rear-wheel setup, all-terrain tires, etc. But, the catch is that it is one-tenth the size of the actual truck. Say what?

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe vs. 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 SStuttgart Enemies

For decades, Porsche has established the benchmark in many (if not all) vehicle classes that it competes in. From the 911 to the Macan , every Porsche is known for its superior handling, body control, and finesse. The Porsche Cayenne is no exception. Since its inception in 2003, the Cayenne has proven naysayers wrong, winning comparison tests and even MotorTrend SUV of the Year. Now, as a new generation emerges, the Cayenne is once again making some noise. The Mercedes-Benz... [read more]

Jaguar's XJR9 Is a Bonkers British Racer and Le Mans Legend

Sir John Egan, the man who pulled Jaguar out of the state-owned morass that was British Leyland, was a shrewd salesman. He knew Jaguar had enough money to launch the XJ40 sedan in 1986, but not a lot more. He realized the companys long-term future, therefore, lay in persuading one of the global auto giants to fund the ongoing R&D needed to improve the XJ40 and build a replacement for the aging XJ-S , as well as invest in the...

Porsche Is Preparing Another Facelift For The Recently Updated Macan

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
The first-generation Porsche Macan was launched in 2014, which means that it's six years old as of 2020. Given that modern car life cycles take five to six years, it's about time for a redesign. But it seems Porsche wants to keep the current Macan on the market a while longer. At least that's what a set of new spy shots we just received suggest.

Holy Turbo Terrors! Its the Front-Drive Sport Compact Comparison Test!

As enthusiasts, were taught from a young age to view front-drive cars with contempt. They are flawed. Wrong-wheel drive. Plagued with torque steer if you give them any power.

Nissan just unveiled the Z Proto, a concept car that previews the next-generation Z, likely to be called the 400Z. With the Z Proto out in the open, there is all sorts of speculation as to what it could spawn.

Trickle-Down Tailgatenomics: 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Gets GMC's Fancy Tailgate Tech

When the current GMC Sierra 1500 debuted, we applauded the truck for finally differentiating itself from its slightly-(slightly) lower-market Chevrolet Silverado 1500 sibling. One key differentiator? An exclusive, optional reconfigurable tailgate that can alternately act as a work surface, a step into the bed, or a load stop depending on how you position it. But now, we're learning that the handy tailgate will trickle down to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado . There will be one small difference: While GMC calls... [read more]

This Chinese Rip-off of the Ford F-150 Raptor Screams Communist Privilege
