Our friends over at MotorTrend were invited for an exclusive First Drive of Ford’s first ever EV pickup truck. The truck, dubbed the F-150 Lightning, stands to go up against the ever growing list of rivals in the new lane of EV vehicles. How do they think it will stack up? Check out the drive below, and let us know what you think.
This 1992 Autozam Scrum was dubbed the “Texas Toot,” and was built by Craig Meanx. After purchasing it fully stock in 2020, he decided to go big or go home after being gifted 16.9-30 tractor tires. Texas Toot was built entirely in Meanx’s garage, and now features a Chevrolet 454 big-block, TH400 transmission, 12-inch drop reverse rotation FTI transfer case, 250 shot nitrous kit, train horns and custom welded 30″ x 15″ wheels. Check it out, right here.
A rumor is going through the mill that the domestic market Corvette Z06 will get an upgrade not available to car lovers across the pond. Mind you, this doesn’t happen very often. Emissions regulations have forced Chevrolet to redesign the exhaust outlet for the car, while the US-spec versions will receive the centrally-mounted quad-exit tailpipes. The main driver? (pun-intended) the exhaust noise. The note from the quad pipes is unbelievable. Additionally, non-US Z06 customers may experience a decrease in performance similar to that in the foreign market Stingrays.
For example, European Corvette Stingrays produce 468 horsepower (495 in the US) and 455 lb-ft of torque (470 lb-ft in the States). We can deduce the Z06 models will have a similar power deficit. Check out the exhaust in detail, right here.
A massive utility vehicle? Or as Jay likes to refer to it: “It’s like owning a giant dog.” Dodge’s answer to the Suburban was this massive ride that was actually classified as a station wagon. Check it out, right here.
The car featured today is something special. There’s certainly a number of cop car creations out there, some noteworthy and some, well, not so much. The noteworthy ones can be even cooler than the sports cars they are based on. Some police departments have started the conversion to all electric vehicles in their fleets, while others are sticking to the tried-and-true muscle of combustion-powered cars. One of those departments is the Valdosta Police Department, who has just acquired a police vehicle based on the Ford Mustang GT. The car has upgrades thanks to Ford Specialist Steeda, and you need to check it out. Click the video below to see it for yourself. Enjoy.
