Shelby Baja 700 Ford F-150 Raptor

Shelby Baja 700 Ford F-150 Raptor
As if you couldn’t already get your 2x4s home faster than everyone else, Shelby American took the current-gen (2011-2014) Raptor and bumped up its F-150 SVT’s power like Vladimir Putin rides horses, with utter abandon. From the factory, the Ford F-150 Raptor made enough power to soil your dungarees with its four-wheel driven 411 hp, and the Shelby Version made even more at 575.

2016 Ford F-150 Gets Pro Trailer Backup System
I believe am a very good driver. I have spent years driving cars on the racetrack and teaching others to do so. Despite all my track day prowess, I can’t back my way out of a paper bag with a trailer behind a truck.

Stadium Truck Indestructible, Driver’s Underwear Not So Much
I have been on the track with driving students and behind the wheel on more than a few occasions when the car has spun out. It’s not so bad when I am behind the wheel, because I know what I am going to do.

2016 Ford F-150 to Offer CNG/Propane V8 Option
Ford has previously offered a version of the popular F-150 that could be powered by compressed natural gas or propane. The catch was that the truck was only offered with a V6 at the time. Ford has now announced that with the 2016 F-150, it will offer a package from the factory that prepares the 5.0L V8 engine to run on either CNG or propane.

Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 105 Pickup

Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 105 Pickup
The latest member of Kahn Design’s Flying Huntsman Land Rover Defender line is certainly an odd one. As is the series’ trademark, the 105 Pick Up has a 15″ longer wheelbase and 16″ longer bonnet than a stock Defender, but the snout is even more pronounced here because it’s visibly larger than the truck bed.

Brabus Startech: The Range Rover Avalanche

Brabus Startech: The Range Rover Avalanche
I’m not normally a fan of car/truck or truck/SUV mashups. I was never an El Camino fan and I don’t really like the Chevy Avalanche. Brabus has taken a Range Rover and turned it into something awesome, and I really like it.

Freightliner SuperTruck Gets 12.2 mpg with a Full Load

As the years went by those smaller trucks suddenly became as expensive as a full-size truck leading many people to just buy the big truck, and sales declined for mid-size trucks.

Peugeot Design Lab Made a Dedicated Food Truck

Peugeot Design Lab Made a Dedicated Food Truck
Food trucks are wonderful little restaurants crammed haphazardly into old vans. Sometimes, if they’re either part of very successful food truck empires or started by well established chefs, they’re even haphazardly crammed into new vans. You know what would be even cooler?

Big Rig Catches Massive Air

Big Rig Catches Massive Air
Big Rigs drive the highways around our nation and the world each day carrying all sorts of cargo. These massive trucks can survive head on collisions that crumple other vehicles into balls of useless metal. These trucks are so big and heavy I bet you have never thought of anyone jumping one of them into the air on purpose.

Review: 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch

Review: 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch
I’ll start out by saying this: The 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch is the best pickup truck I’ve ever driven. It’s loaded with luxuries and comforts not typically associated with pickups, and doesn’t sacrifice utility in the least.
