Rather than the run-of-the-mill GLC’s 2.0L I-4 turbo, the GLC63 and GLC63 Coupe essentially double displacement and output to a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V-8 producing a rousing 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Need even more fire-breathing horsepressure? Then step up to the GLS63 S Coupe, which serves up 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Owning a custom truck can have its ups and downs. While the pride of ownership and all the thumbs up you get rolling down the road can be rewarding, the other side of the coin is all the extra work required to keep it looking its best, not to mention having to park it way out in the back corner of the parking lot.

For some reason, the nicer your truck gets, the more of a magnet for mishaps it becomes. But whether we want to admit it or not, chances are, ourselves have backed into or ran over something that required a paint touchup for a car or truck. Our subject is a ’15 Ford F-150 that picked a fight with a set of trash cans, scraping the paint off the rear bumper.

  2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Out Testing Could Next-Gen Trucks Use More Aluminum Than Originally Thought?Sources say GM may be increasing the aluminum content on the truck, however we believe it will still employ a mixed-metals approach rather than Ford’s all-aluminum construction. The bed may remain steel, as GM has made a big deal of this in its recent ad campaign against the F-150 and one that’s not likely to be easily or quickly forgotten.

Tesla to Unveil Semi-Truck in September, Pickup to Follow

  Tesla to Unveil Semi-Truck in September, Pickup to Follow We now know more about where Tesla's vehicle model range is headed. The electric car company's CEO, Elon Musk, took to Twitter Thursday to announce that its upcoming semi-truck will be revealed in September and relative dates for other upcoming Teslas. "Tesla Semi truck unveil set for September," said Musk. "Team has done an amazing job. Seriously next level." In July 2016, Musk wrote in his "Master Plan, Part Deux" about his intention for Tesla to build a semi. "We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate," wrote Musk in the plan. Musk also said that a pickup truck will be coming to the model range in less than two years. "Today, Tesla addresses two relatively small segments of premium sedans and SUVs. With the Model 3, a future compact SUV and a new kind of pickup truck, we plan to address most of the consumer market," Musk wrote in the plan. Tesla does not have a great reputation when it comes to delivering on a deadline, so one can only hope that Musk is able to pull these dates off. Tesla Semi truck unveil set for September.

Will the Jeep Wrangler Pickup Look Like This? .
<p>Unofficial renders preview first Jeep truck in 25 years</p>The front end should look familiar, as it's based on the Wrangler Unlimited renderings JL Wrangler Forums did earlier this year. Those renderings were based on leaked CAD drawings of the Wrangler Unlimited, so the front end probably isn't far off from production. The rest of the rendering is based on test mules we've seen in spy photos and the forums' own insider info. The creators have heard that the pickup variant, codenamed JT, won't have the same scoop behind the fender as the standard Wrangler, so that element is missing in these renders.
