What’s News: Pickups, that’s what.


Dodge Ram finally overtakes Chevy’s Silverado for the #2 spot in full size trucks.

The change has been stark, as the Silverado used to ship more than 150,000 more units than the Ram, and now it’s down over 20,000. Typically, buyers of said trucks tend to stick with whatever brand they bought last time

“Tesla’s CEO has sought suggestions for features to add to the Tesla truck under development and he revealed some planned features, like an option for 400 to 500 miles of range, Dual Motor all-wheel drive powertrain with dynamic suspension, as well as ‘300,000 lbs of towing capacity’.

The automaker also released a teaser image of the Tesla pickup truck, which they plan to fully unveil later this year.
