Hennesssey VelociRaptor 6×6 Ford F-150 will have you seeing double

Ford sells an F-Series pickup now that costs $100,000, but it’s got nothing on this.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 is a custom Ford F-150 Raptor with six-wheels and a six figure price tag of $295,000 to go with them.

The truck is making its public debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, if they can fit it in the building.

(JK, but it is big.)

Along with the extended bed, the super truck gets a second Raptor rear axle that gives it six-wheel-drive, modified Fox suspension, 20-inch wheels, and unique front and rear bumpers.

If you don’t think the Raptor’s 450 hp twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 can handle it, Hennessey also offers an engine and exhaust upgrade that bumps it up to over 600 horsepower for $22,500.

(That’s not cheap, but it is less than 8 percent the price of the rest of the truck, so there’s that.)

The power kit is also available on the 4×4 Raptor if you want to save a couple of hundred grand, but the 6×6 is several times cooler.

2018 Pontiac GTO Judge!

The new rumor on the internet is that new 2018 Pontiac GTO Judge is coming soon to the market. We all remember the rumor about new 2017 Pontiac Trans Am, but jet we have found out that the “Rumor” is not just rumor, the new Trans am has been made, an that is 7 of them, with Camaro Body kit, and it is not Pontiac, because we all know that Pontiac is dead!Is the new 2018 Pontiac GTO Judge is going to been made on same way like new Trans Am, and will it be limited edition, we will see soon. We all know that the The Judge was released back in 1969, and it was intended as a low-cost model of the car. Yet, according to rumors new GTO will be more powerful, and looks more awesome! But let’s get back to what we found so far!

Now, when we talk about the engine options for new GTO, there are few rumors on the net. 6.2-liter Camaro V8, 7.0 and so on. But if it goes like with Bandit Edition limited, that it is currently custom, and you could order what engine you want. But, if you ask us, we would like to see 7.4-liter LSX V8 engine, 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger with 840 hp. Now, that is something great if you wanna have real muscle car, and you wanna enjoy the ride!

Now, with so many rumors on the internet, we wanna go with the one that is possible, because we know that Pontiac is dead!
We think that they will use donor Camaro body kit, and do some little adjustments to him like they did on new Bandit, and will make custom made GOT Judge just like you wannaIf we take the case with new Trans am Bandit Edition and limited edition of 77, with the starting price of $115,000, including the donor Chevrolet Camaro (according to Top Speed), but it may be little different, we can expect that new GTO will cost around $150,000 (including the donor Chevrolet Camaro), which is little too much, but on the other hand, this is GTO Judge.

Remember this article is based on the rumors, but we all remember the rumor about Ford Bronco (it’s going to be made), and rumor about Trans am, so this is more likely to be truth than just fools advertising!
Our opinion is that it will be custom made (because Pontiac is dead), and it will be limited edition.

2017 FORD TORINO – A LEGEND IS COMING TO LIFE

The original Ford Torino was a mid-size family car which was, at first, just the upscale version of the Fairlane. Later down the road this car became a standalone model which was quite successful, especially in its two-door body style. It was larger than the Mustang, and it was also offering more powerful engines in the base trim level. Unfortunately, for the past four decades, the car has been missing from the market, but there are some rumors about a new 2017 Ford Torino.
These rumors first started back in early 2014 when some leaked information suggested that Ford would work on an entirely new model. One of the possibilities was to resurrect the Torino nameplate but since then we did not receive a lot of details about this.


2017 FORD TORINO HAVE NEVER BEEN CONFIRMED, BUT…

Unfortunately, these speculations have never been confirmed, but it seems that the Torino might not be a myth after all. The car would be resurrected as a successor for the Taurus. This would perfectly fit the market slot and price point of the previous model. On top of that, it would give Ford enough room to work on future models as well. We expect the Torino to be launched as a sedan as well as a coupe, and these two should share a similar type of design, and both of them should be based on a new platform developed by Ford.
At this point, there is still very little information about the underpinnings, but there are strong rumors out there suggesting a new rear wheel drive chassis is being prepared. This would be developed from that of the Mustang, and it would share parts with it. However, it would be tweaked more for comfort and high-speed cruising rather than pure performance. On top of that, both the sedan and the coupe are expected to offer longer wheelbases than the Mustang and both of them will be physically larger.
WHAT IS DIFFERENCE OF FORD TORINO AND MUSTANG?
Another really big difference between the 2017 Ford Torino models and the Mustang is going to be the design. This one is expected to get a retro look in combination with modern design and to be based on the ‘70s Torino. The result for this should be a more dramatic looking sedan and quite a larger muscle car than the Mustang.

2017 FORD TORINO PRICE & ENGINE
Because the two are likely going to be priced above $40,000, both versions should get the larger engine as standard than their corporate siblings. Many rumors suggested that Ford may ditch their EcoBoost lineup for these and release them with a V8. This would likely mean that the 5.0-liter Coyote would be offered here, and it would easily offer more than 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque while allowing the cars to have the true character of an original muscle car. A 10 speed automatic is also likely going to be offered, but it seems that the rumored Torino could come with 6-speed manual as well.
One thing that is quite strange is the info about the EcoBoost units that might be dropped. It is quite hard to believe that Ford invested so much into the development of these units and not to include them in Ford Torino 2017. To be honest, we are pretty sure that we will see few EcoBoost units here.

2018 Dodge RAM Rebel TRX HELLCAT

Ram Rebel TRX Concept

Ford has proven that fast off-road trucks are awesome. Dodge has proven that ridiculously powerful supercharged V8s are awesome. Combining the two would theoretically be even more awesome. The Ram Rebel TRX, which was unveiled at the Texas State Fair, proves that theory. 

(Video below)

As you may have guessed from the intro, the Rebel TRX uses a supercharged V8. A version of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 from the Hellcat twins (and, we suspect, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk). Because of some new calibrations to make the engine more suited for off-road driving, it doesn’t make the full 707 horsepower of the Charger and Challenger. But the TRX engine still cranks out 575 horsepower, which is a full 125 more than the new SVT Raptor. That’s enough to propel the mega-sized truck to 100 mph in its off road terrain mode. 

​​Power is transferred through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. At the back, the Rebel TRX has an electronic locking differential. The TRX also gets an updated version of the Ram’s 4×4 Performance Control System featuring Normal, Wet/Snow, Off-road and – best of all – Baja modes. The latter mode is the one that will do triple digits through the desert. 

Of course a sweet powertrain needs chassis and tire upgrades to round out the package, and the Rebel TRX has plenty of improvements. The standard Ram 1500 frame is unchanged, but bolted to it are custom front control arms, internal bypass shocks at each corner and new springs. The changes bring suspension travel to a full 13 inches all around. It also provides enough space to fit massive 37 x 13.5-inch tires. Ram also added six-piston calipers with 15-inch discs at the front and 14-inch discs at the back. 

Finally, Ram gave all this heavy duty equipment a big, burly wrapper. The body is a full six-inches wider than the standard 1500 with large composite fenders to cover the aforementioned tires. The truck also has a vented and scooped hood based on the Ram HD. This was necessary to help cool the engine and provide vertical clearance for the supercharger. A large sport bar was added to the back and has provisions for carrying a pair of spare tires, plus an LED light bar on top. The truck also has a big steel skid plate up front, and a sweet integrated side-exit exhaust behind the doors. 

Inside, the truck gets plenty of leather, suede and carbon fiber. The front seats also have racing harnesses attached to a harness bar that spans the B-pillars. And Rebel TRX takes a page out of the Porsche playbook with Nylon-door pulls instead of handles. 

Now of course this isn’t a true Raptor rival yet because it’s just a one-off concept. But Ram did say that the company is looking at the market to see if a truck like this would be a good idea, as well as the intention to offer more off-road friendly vehicles. So Ram fans, if you really want this truck, you’d better make sure Chrysler hears you. We would certainly love to see it reach production, and we already like the swagger of the TRX name. You know T-Rex, as in bigger and badder than a Raptor.

2018 Chevy Chevelle

The brand new concept 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is actually an old one – it’s a known Chevelle from 1977 which has caught the hearts from many Chevy lovers. If you also loved (or still love) Camaro from the same manufacturer, you’ll be gladdened to hear that they prepared very similar model to it. Finally, be careful with all information about this model, because, it’s still unconfirmed information.

As the known Camaro, the 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is three-door concept car with characteristic Chevy features. That means rounded edges, strong but nice and new LED headlights and sharper and angled fog lights. The front bumper is designed to allow aerodynamic performances of the car, which is matched with a long hood and strong machine under it. The whole car, looking from the side is close to looking of the trunk, especially with the rear end which is really amazing.

2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS interior

The cabin of the 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS represents the great and innovative design for a future year. Even some details are from known Camaro, the main inside features are original for this car. The large and roomy cabin is beautified with flat and comfort seats, but hard enough for you and your passengers’ safety even on high speeds. This comfort is fulfilled with very wide entertainment system, like Bluetooth phone connectivity, mp3 audio system, USB ports, auxiliary output, and sound and audio system. All is just a part of new-age infotainment technology, which is contained of navigation, cruise control, all important numbers like the temperature, miles, fuel economy and all is shown in large touchscreen display in the middle of the dashboard.

ENGINE

There will be two engine options. First one is a 2.0-liter engine with 294 horsepower and the second one is 3.3 liter V6 much stronger than the first version. Knowing the size of 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, it’s hard to expect low fuel economy for this size car, so before we learn the information about that, we can predict the high number. Smaller engine has 500 pound-feet of torque, which is much higher than on every in this class

2018 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS PRICE

Expected starting price for this concept car is around $30,000, which is also very favorable in this class. But, before you start to think about the buying of the new car, let’s say that Chevrolet has never confirmed production of it. It’s still a rumor as many of them on the internet, but we still expect some novelties from Chevrolet and some of them can be very similar to this concept, too.

Shelby unveils all new 750 HP wide-body 2017 Super Snake Mustang

The horsepower wars are heating up again now that Shelby American has entered the fray with their wide-body version of the 6th gen Ford Mustang.

Wide-body versions of the Mustang have been incredibly popular over the past few years, so it was just a matter of time before the 2017 edition made an appearance.

The question on everyone’s mid is how will this compare against the wide-body Dodge Challenger SRT Demon?

The 2017 Ford Shelby Super Snake Wide Body is strictly a concept car at the moment. Shelby American has stretched the rear track by about 4″ and the front track by 2.5″, but that’s not the limit of their modifications.

Their engineers started with a Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition and added bigger brake discs, wider wheels and tires, and a fully adjustable coil over suspension. The result should be a Super Snake with more grip on the road and better braking than its factory counterpart.

Take a first look at the 2017 wide-body Super Snake in the video below.

When the F-150 Raptor just isn’t big enough try the F-250 MegaRaptor

In the world of trucks there are few purchases more extravagant than a new Ford F-150 Raptor, but some fans didn’t think it was quite big enough.

Jeremy Dixon from Tucson’s F250R.com wanted something a bit bigger so he built the MegaRaptor.

This converted F-250 Super Duty is an off-road monster with a tougher frame and suspension than its little brother.

The MegaRaptor’s 6.7 liter PowerStroke V8 turbo-diesel engine can crank out 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque, which is a pretty big step up from the regular Raptor’s standard EcoBoost V6.

F250R will convert any 2005-2016 era F-250 for about $28,000. Depending on the specs of the F-250 base, the total cost of your new MegaRaptor could be more than $70,000.

While most of you won’t be able to afford the MegaRaptor, you can at least see it in action with the video below.

Company Offers 100 Year Warranty on Their ‘Warzone Ready’ Truck That Gets 1,000 Miles Per Tank

A new battle-ready SUV is turning heads for its shocking simplistic design and 100-year warranty. The construction of the Partisan One is reminiscent of scaffolding and is actually delivered in a lightweight assembly kit, making it easier to drop the vehicle into warzones. The SUV is also somewhat sparse, only coming with the most basic components.

As reported by Fox News, the German company’s creation includes a steering wheel, seats, pedals, and lights. The circular holes on the exterior surfaces provide options for bolting on armor plating, and a V-shaped armor panel can also be added under the chassis to help deflect roadside bombs.

With its simplistic design and lack of styling, the vehicle is less expensive than many luxury SUVs and can be produced more quickly.

The designer of the Partisan One claim the vehicle’s right angles at the roofline are an intentional move to help the SUV stand out from its more attractive rivals.

Buyers also have the ability to install almost any engine into the SUV, including electric or hybrid motors. A 2.8-liter Fiat diesel is the standard option.

Also standard is a massive fuel tank designed to allow the Partisan One to go nearly 1,000 on a single tank.

Currently, there are three and five-door variants of the SUV available, and there is the possibility that six-wheel or eight-wheel versions could be manufactured in the future.

Prior to assembly, the flatpack design allows multiple Partisan Ones to be placed into a single shipping container, making them easier to deploy into the battlefield that some other military vehicles. Once the shipment arrives, the SUVs can be assembled onsite, a process that the company claims is relatively easy.

Partisan Motors, which was founded by Dr. Juri E. Postnikov, a Russian engineer and the designer of the Partisan One, is offering a shocking 100-year warranty on the vehicle that includes coverage for “the entire car in addition to its wearing parts.” According to CNET, Postnikov asserts that the SUV is “the best car for the world’s worst roads.”

The company also states that the vehicle can survive 50 years of military use or more.

Ford F-150 with a V-6 Ecoboost beats a Challenger SRT Hellcat in the 1/4 mile

Who doesn’t love a good underdog?

In the video below, a 2017 Ford F-150 powered by a V-6 Ecoboost managed to out run a Ford Shelby GT350, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in the quarter mile.

The incredible performance of the F-150 can be attributed to 4-wheel drive and the work by Brew City Boost. The truck’s stock 3.5 liter twin turbocharged engine was running on E50 gas with methanol injection giving it an impressive 12.49 second quarter-mile.

Over a 1/2 mile track this truck wouldn’t stand a chance, but on the 1/4 mile the F-150 was king for a day.

See the Hellcat try to keep up in the video below.

The 750-HP Shelby F-150 Super Snake Is a $100,000 Thundertruck

Sad that the Ford no longer sells an F-150 Lightning? Want a full-size truck with Dodge Hellcat-rivaling power? Shelby American has the answers to these questions and more. For a little under $100,000, Shelby will sell you the F-150 Super Snake, a truck with a 750-hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8.

Unlike the Ford F-150 Raptor, the Super Snake is designed for on-road use only, as evidenced by its extremely low front air dam and side sills. Naturally, the Super Snake wears twin white racing stripes and a no lack of Shelby badging–lest you forget who builds this truck. Shelby also throws in a new tonneau cover, rear bumper, and interior badging.

Shelby says it aimed to improve the F-150’s handling for the Super Snake, and collaborated with Ford Performance and Borla for its development. The Super Snake is available with either rear- or four-wheel drive and each truck comes with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty.
