Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck

The Toyota Hilux pickup truck first hit the streets in 1968, shoving aside flimsier trucks based on the Corona and Crown within a few years. While the Hilux (or “Hylux”) name got a bit of marketing use by Toyota in North America, this truck was known here as, simply, the Truck. I found this well-worn-but-unrusted […] The post Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Ram 1500 Review

Torque of the Town: 2019 Ram Heavy Duty

Last year was a bountiful season for truck fans, with two of the Detroit Three introducing new iterations of their half-ton pickups.

Ace of Base: 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Volvo Trucks teases the all-electric semi truck it’s bringing to California in 2019

Volvo Trucks released teaser images Wednesday of the electric trucks it plans to bring to California next year as part of a demonstration project, the latest truck manufacturer to publicize its electric plans in the state. The attraction to California is no accident. The state has set aggressive targets to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions, particularly those generated from tailpipes. Daimler Trucks North America said in July it would begin testing 20 fully electric heavy- and medi...

Ace of Base: 2019 Nissan Frontier King Cab S 4×2

The old adage of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies to household plumbing, your kid’s Lego creations, and the squeaking ventilation fan in my Dodge Charger. It also applies to the Nissan Frontier pickup, apparently. Seriously. Even though this thing is almost old enough to vote, Nissan is selling them by the boatload.

Can you imagine buying a new full-size Detroit pickup truck with the top luxury trim package and less than 100 horsepower?

Even though we’ve just had two Japanese Junkyard Finds in a row, I’ve been searching for a discarded Acura SLX for so long that I had to share this ’99 in Denver immediately.

Hey, Ford built a self-driving truck too!

With the F-Vision, Ford too jumps onto the autonomous-truck bandwagon, and why shouldn’t they? Autonomous trucks, if done right, benefit everyone. They’re safer, they can work day and night (bringing down the cost of logistics), they work on holidays too, and autonomous trucks don’t unionize (yet).The F-Vision, unveiled at the Hanover Motor Show, however, won’t be completely autonomous. The silver, curvaceous vehicle comes with Level 4 autonomy, which means there’s a human overseeing the truck’s...

Volvo’s Vera makes trucking autonomous and safe

Autonomous trucking makes sense for a whole lot of reasons. While it will reduce the jobs held by human truck-drivers, it automates a profession that’s known for being intense. A self-driving truck, unlike a human-driven truck, could operate 24×7 and even at odd hours without worrying about the human sleeping behind the wheel. The trucking company doesn’t need to worry about wages, overtime, benefits, holidays, or even unions. The process becomes much safer, much more efficient, and immensely st...

The Mercedes-Benz Vision Urbanetic explores modular mobility

Not one to be outdone by Motorola’s obsession with modularity, Mercedes-Benz showcased their vision for modularity in automobiles. The Urbanetic shows the company’s explorations in modular vehicles, where the car’s undercarriage is a separate entity that allows various vehicular bodies to plug on top of it, allowing it to transform from a self-driving minivan to a self-driving truck.Its hyper-organic detailing aside (something I’m not really a fan of), the vehicle, or ‘mobility concept’ as its...

Junkyard Find: 1986 Dodge B250 Leopard Van

I see two types of distinctively Coloradan sticker-covered vehicles in Denver-area self-service wrecking yards. One type is the stony-ass wastoidmobile Subaru plastered with decals from cannabis dispensaries, vape-juice shops, and microbreweries. The other is the battered outdoorsy Detroit truck, plastered with decals from mountain-bike shops, ski resorts, rafting outfitters, and environmental causes. These types tend […] The post Junkyard Find: 1986 Dodge B250 Leopard Van appeared first on The ...

Cleverest Girl? F-150 Limited Gets Raptor Power

The F-150 Limited – which is, naturally, limited only to the number they can sell – currently sits atop the truck’s totem pole, usurping the King Ranch and Platinum as the most expensive half-ton F-Series pickup.

2018 Toyota Tundra 4×4 SR5 TRD Sport Review – For the Long Haul

Autonomous driving is here to transform the lumber industry

If you thought the Tesla Semi was an impressive beast of a machine, Einride’s T-Log is sure to change your mind. Imagine a powerful electric truck… Now imagine it without a driver or even a cockpit. Einride’s T-Log, built for Sweden’s billion-dollar logging industry, features a design with practically no cockpit, as the truck comes with a platform for holding the logs, and a slim front that’s all autonomous. It even ditches the windshield for a display that is only outdone by the stunning, U-s...

Junkyard Find: 1995 Jeep Cherokee Right-hand Drive

The XJ Jeep Cherokee has been in production for nearly 35 years (if you count the BAW Knight S12, which I do) and remains very popular as a daily driver in Colorado, so I see many discarded examples in Denver-area wrecking yards.

Volkswagen’s Atlas Tanoak concept is a short-bed pickup truck dream

Volkswagen debuted a concept pickup truck at the New York Auto Show this week, and the Atlas-based design features a short bed design, based on VW’s MQB platform. It’s basically the Atlas 7-seater SUV with the back cut off and a small (but versatile) truck bed in place of the SUV’s cargo storage and third seating row – but that could be exactly the right balance to strike if Volkswagen wants to make a pickup that’s attractive to U.S. consumers. The Atlas Tanoak, named after a type of tree found ...
