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...

Driving the 1966 Jaguar XJ13, the British Brand’s Stillborn Le Mans Contender

Le Mans, 1968, the way it was meant to sound: the rolling thunder of the 7.0-liter Ford GT40s, the screaming howl of the Ferrari P4s, the edgy rasp of the Porsche 908s, and the metallic snarl of the mid-engine, V-12-powered Jaguar XJ13. The thought of this impossibly low-slung British Racing Green roadster running wheel to wheel down the Mulsanne Straight...

Newest 2021 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition Celebrates the U.S. Air Force

Ram Trucks introduced a novel take on the limited-edition pickup earlier this year when it began rolling out its “Built to Serve” line of 1500 pickups. These special-edition trucks were to be released in batches of 1,000 to 2,000 units, with each run decorated in honor of one of the five branches of America’s armed forces. So far, we’ve seen Ram’s Built...

Radical SR10 First Look: One Radical Track Toy

Easy to operate and cost-effective, the all-new Radical SR10 aims to keep drivers on the track for longer stretches at faster speeds, whether dicing it up at the local club track day or racing in the Radical Cup. Expanding on the architecture of the Radical Motorsports SR model line, which includes the SR3 and SR8, the SR10 offers the next level of...

2022 Ford F-150 EV Due After Tesla Cybertruck, GMC Hummer, Rivian EVs

Ford won’t be first to market among the slew of electric pickup trucks on the horizon, but a new plant is under construction to deliver the 2022 Ford F-150 electric pickup in mid-2022. That’s shortly after the 2022 GMC Hummer EV electric pickup, the 2021 Rivian R1T electric truck and the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck are due. Ford has confirmed production...

2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo First Look: The One You Really Want

Mazda’s been on a bit of a (horse) power kick lately. A few weeks ago, the brand took the wraps off the 2021 Mazda 3 hatchback and sedan’s new 2.5 Turbo trim and its turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. No surprise, then, the CX-30 crossover is getting the turbocharged treatment, as well. As in the case with the 3, the CX-30’s new turbo 2.5-liter...

Yamaha Wolverine RMAX 1000 UTV First Look: A New Standard for Side-by-Sides?

It wasn’t that long ago we were hanging out in the deserts of Southern California and watching the birth of the side-by-side market as we know it. It all started simply enough, with people tricking out second-hand golf carts. As quickly as such golf carts came onto the scene, though, they were gone again. This time people found that the same companies...

Racer Andy Pilgrim Recalls His First 24 Hours of Le Mans

Even though this year’s race will look a little bit different, without the thousands of fans lining the stands, Le Mans itself is still the same 8.5 notorious miles of straights, chicanes, and flat-out corners. Just ask Andy Pilgrim, who has raced at the 24 hours of Le Mans six times in his career and knows the track as well as anyone. But his first...

Report: Nissan 400Z Sports Car Will Not Be Sold in Europe

Too often, it feels like Europe gets all the good stuff. Now the tables have turned, as the new Nissan Z won’t be offered on the Old Continent. Yes, we’ll see the new V-6 sports car here in the U.S., but not in Europe. The news isn’t particularly surprising, given that Nissan is carefully streamlining its European business with the help of alliance...

2021 Ferrari Portofino M First Look: M Is for More

For better or worse, we’ve called the Portofino an everyday Ferrari—a very good, but not great, car from Maranello. That’s less of a criticism and more an observation of the real purpose of the entry-level Ferrari drop-top. We have already found it to be fast, elegant, refined, and luxuriously equipped—it’s faint praise only when you consider the other...
