The Hybrid 2021 Ford F-150 Will Be Paired With Base 3.5-Liter V6: Document

The Hybrid 2021 Ford F-150 Will Be Paired With Base 3.5-Liter V6: Document
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

We’ve known a hybrid Ford F-150 pickup was on the schedule for this year since 2017, but word on the electrified truck has been relatively quiet since. But a new VIN decoder document appears to show it’ll get a 3.5-liter V6 and debut for the 2021 model year.

The document, dated January 24, 2020 and shared to newF150forum.com earlier today, breaks down the...

That Time Our $101,315 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Got Stolen

That Time Our $101,315 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Got Stolen

In the darkness of this global pandemic, there are precious few rays of light and hope. But there will always be the illumination of truth. Sweet and just truth, which will spring from our hearts and banish the shadow of lies and deceit. Truth is brought forth into the world today in the form of the very true story of how our Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk was stolen.

This story actually took...

The 2020 Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra Proves Just Because You Have No Taste Doesn't Mean You Have To Buy Ford

The 2020 Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra Proves Just Because You Have No Taste Doesn't Mean You Have To Buy Ford
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

Up until now, Harley-Davidson has slapped its questionable styling treatments on a special Ford F-150—through Ford up until 2013, and then after through an aftermarket vendor. But Harley is branching out, and you can get the same tacky treatment on a 2020 GMC Sierra now.

Patent Shows The Electric Ford F-150 Is Going To Get A Pretty Big Frunk

Patent Shows The Electric Ford F-150 Is Going To Get A Pretty Big Frunk

An all-electric Ford F-150 pickup is coming, and a new patent filing shows us exactly what’s in store under the hood. Since it won’t be an engine, it looks like Ford instead will offer a front trunk, or a frunk, and a pretty clever storage system.

Here's How Tesla Played Itself With The Cybertruck Vs. Ford F-150 Demonstration

Here's How Tesla Played Itself With The Cybertruck Vs. Ford F-150 Demonstration
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

We’re getting to the point when you can’t really say “we’ve all seen that dumbass Tesla Cybertruck demo” because there’s already an absurd amount of them. This time, we’re specifically referring to that video of the Cybertruck supposedly pulling a Ford F-150 uphill. You’ve probably seen plenty of tweets debunking the whole thing already—but there’s actually a...

2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Fails To Achieve Best-In-Class MPG Because Chevy Kicked Too Much Ass

2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Fails To Achieve Best-In-Class MPG Because Chevy Kicked Too Much Ass
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

Back in June, Ram announced that its newest generation Ram EcoDiesel was “expected to lead the segment on fuel economy.” Then in July, Chevy dropped a bombshell: Its new inline-six diesel Silverado pickup had scored an incredible 33 mpg highway . Now the Ram’s EPA numbers are out, and while good, they aren’t best-in-class.

Give credit where it’s due: Chevrolet...

Ford's Kind Of Made 'Raptor Lite' Versions Of F-150 And Ranger With New Factory Upgrades

Ford's Kind Of Made 'Raptor Lite' Versions Of F-150 And Ranger With New Factory Upgrades
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Ford is going to sell suspension upgrades for the Ranger and F-150 pickup trucks that are slightly more robust than the existing FX4 off-road trim, but well shy of the extreme Raptor on cost and capability. It’s actually a pretty interesting development for the truck scene.

People have been putting lift kits and big tires on pickup trucks since, well,...

Nearly Half A Million Fords and Lincolns Recalled For Faulty Seats

Nearly Half A Million Fords and Lincolns Recalled For Faulty Seats

Since the Ford F-series pickup truck was America’s best-selling vehicle last year (nearly a million sold, my God), the chances are good that at least one of you reading are affected by this latest recall, so pay attention.

Ford is recalling 482,520 vehicles over driver’s and/or passenger’s side manual front-seat back recliner mechanisms, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration...

Would You Spend $40,000 On This Mint 6,000 Mile 1984 Ford F-150 Or On A Brand New F-150?

Would You Spend $40,000 On This Mint 6,000 Mile 1984 Ford F-150 Or On A Brand New F-150?
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Found for sale in Michigan is 1984 Ford F-150 with apparently under 6,000 miles on its odometer. It looks absolutely perfect, which is why the asking price is nearly $40,000. You can buy a new F-150 for that much, but which of the two would you rather own?

For sale at a dealership called Vanguard Motor Sales in Plymouth, Michigan is a bafflingly perfect, low...

Ford has already promised us an all-electric F-150 , and now, to prove to The Truck People that EVs can be Tough and Macho, The Blue Oval brand put together a PR stunt involving an F-150 prototype towing over 1 million pounds worth of train cars. Watch this EV pickup tug.

The video shows the F-15o’s chief engineer Linda Zhang presenting the company’s F-150 EV...

This Dealer's Retro 1970s Ford F-150 Package Brings Back The Beautiful Trucks We've Lost

The past is back in a big way, folks. Don’t worry, disco is still very much dead and high crime rates don’t seem to be making a comeback, but two-tone F-150s with chrome racks and HiLites are, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

This retro package, called the “BFP Retro F-150" option, is available through Beechmont Ford in Cincinnati, Ohio, finally giving you a reason to go to...

The 2019 Ford F-150 RTR Is Your Big Bouncing Off-Roading Beef-Boy Buddy

The 2019 Ford F-150 RTR Is Your Big Bouncing Off-Roading Beef-Boy Buddy
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

You’re aware, I’m sure, of the Ford Mustang RTR —a Mustang with a dealer-installed upgrade kit that can make a good 700 horsepower. Now RTR is at it again, but this time it’s beefing up the Ford F-150. And y’all, this might be the truck that turns me into a serious off-roading man.

I’m not kidding! I don’t do much off-roading myself, but I hear it’s all in the...

Electric Ford F-150 Spied With Fake Exhaust (Updated With Photos and Video)
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Ford, as we’ve known for some time now , is building an electric version of the F-150. This makes a ton of sense on nearly every level, though the company took the unusual (?) step recently of trotting out a test version with an exhaust pipe that doesn’t look, let’s say, real.

Computer, enhance.

Hmm. The truck also has an independent rear suspension,...

Rivian Has Been Secretly Testing Its Electric Trucks Disguised as Ford F-150s

Rivian , the startup electric vehicle company developing an electric pickup capable of up to 400 miles of range, has apparently been doing much of its road testing in Detroit under the disguise of the Ford F-150.

No, I Cannot Recommend You Put Louvers On Your Ford F-150
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

I have never in my life claimed to be a truck person. At least, not until I drove a Ford Raptor while hanging out in Detroit for the auto show. The height, the power, the feel, the glory—it all brought joy to my dark, lonely heart. I was finally Erica Lourd, Badass. I respected that truck. I thought, you know what, no Raptor can look uncool.

Until now.
