Oh, the fun the driver must have every single day!
Best Cars Of 2021
With the pandemic still looming over our heads, 2021 was a pretty action-packed year for the auto industry. Sure, you had challenges, with automakers having to contend with issues like chip shortages, causing delays to consumers. But regardless, the show had to go on and we got some pretty cool cars making their debut, predominantly towards the latter half of 2021.
Let’s get one thing out of the way, 2021 really was also the year, when the market as a whole began to embrace EV’s and you could see several automakers both the legacy as well as EV startups bring several new models to market. Having said that, we did see some pretty cool ICE cars, also make their debut. Now there were several cars that made headlines this year, it was very difficult to pick out the best ones, but the cars on this list definitely stood out. Here’s our list of some of the most highly anticipated and important cars that were unveiled in 2021.
Is The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus Really Worth $1.1 Million?
The G-Class is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models - there is no doubt about that. And for sure Brabus does the best work when it comes to updating Mercedes models. Launched back in 2013, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus made quite a sensation. But is it sensational enough for someone to actually think it is worth $1.1 million? At launch, it was priced from $430,000, so let that sink in.
Stock Jeep Trackhawk Takes On The Venom 775 F-150 By Hennessey Performance
Hennessey Performance was out at the Pennzoil proving grounds in Sealy, Texas once again, with their Venom 775 taking on an equally aggressive Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Let’s look at the numbers on these two machines to see how they stack up against each other, shall we?
Here’s How the Ford Ranger Will Look if it Is Built by Other Automakers
Ever since its official launch everyone agreed that the new generation Ford Ranger is quite a departure from the old Ranger. While its design is not a huge improvement over what we were used with, the new Ranger is fresh and its Maverick inspired look fits it very well.
But what if the new Ranger design will inspire a few other trucks?
2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven
The Nissan Frontier has been a trusted workhorse for its owners for a very long time. The truck has been as reliable as it can get. Last year, a Chicago-based delivery driver, Brian Murphy, clocked one million miles on it! However, Nissan took the ‘don’t fix if it ain’t broke’ philosophy a little too seriously. At a time when automakers come up with significant changes even in facelifts every year, Nissan retained the same design language on the Frontier for 15 years! But, for the new, third-gen 2022 model, we get a revamped design that puts it in line with the modern trucks. The company introduced a new engine and gearbox for the previous model year and the same has been carried over this time as well.
The 2022 Nissan Frontier in the top-sped PRO-4X off-road trim arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here’s all you need to know about it.
Toyota’s Electric Pickup Concept Looks Like A Future Tacoma
Toyota and Lexus recently unveiled a whole bunch of electric vehicles (EVs), and it basically covers every single niche and market. You can say that Toyota is pretty much late on the EV game, but they’re now trying to catch up in a big way. One of those EVs is this unnamed electric pickup concept that was also previewed during the press event.
GMC Has Responded To The Ford F-150 Lightning’s Threat With The Electric Sierra!
Although it was bound to happen, this comes as a surprise. GMC dropped a short trailer teasing the new upcoming Electric Sierra Denali. The automaker hasn’t revealed any details about it, but gave us a glimpse of its front fascia. Well, something’s better than nothing and we at least know GMC has already started working on electrifying the Sierra.
This Is What The Production-Spec Tesla Cybertruck Will Look Like!
The Tesla Cybertruck debuted almost two years back, but the deliveries have still not begun. We keep getting constant updates about the unorthodox truck, but it wasn’t spied or seen testing… until now. A long, detailed drone footage of the Cybertruck testing at the Tesla’s Fremont facility has come to the fore, courtesy of ‘Chile Al100’. The video shows the Cybertruck, which seems to be in its production form, and features many changes when compared to the prototype that was unveiled in 2019.
Off-Road Battle: Toyota Land Cruiser Vs Toyota Hilux
CarWow has been synonymous with its drag racing videos on YouTube, but this time they have something different in-store. This time, two Toyota off-road vehicles are being pitted against each other, to determine, which is the better off-roader and workhorse? Moreover, both the Toyota Hilux and Toyota Land Cruiser (Prado) are not being sold on the US market, so the real question is, are you missing something?
2022 Ford F-150 Lightning
Ford launched the F-150 Lightning earlier this year. The electric truck checks almost all the boxes and can be considered as the first mainstream electric pickup truck for the masses. There are a lot of electric trucks launched in recent years, like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the Lordstown Endurance, the Bollinger B2, etc. But, none of them offer the all-round capability that the F-150 Lightning does.
The Ford truck comes with all the bells and whistles one can ask for, and then some more. For now, Ford has launched it in one body style and three basic trims plus an exclusive work truck model, but expect it to grow in the coming years. With all the subsidies and credits, the F-150 Lightning works out to be the cheapest full-size truck in the market today! (more on this in the ‘Pricing’ section). From the looks of it, the F-150 Lightning seems to be an all-rounder that offers good power outputs, decent range, and a lot of tech features. Do you think it will be a runaway success, or will the loyalists look around at other trucks?
Ford Has Been Forced to Quit Accepting New Reservations For the F-150 Lightning
Just a few days ago, we reported that Ford is aiming to be the world’s second-largest electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer in the world, and as a matter of fact, the company has confirmed that it now has 200,000 reservations for the F-150 Lightning. Unfortunately, it is also because of that reason that led the Blue Oval brand to close reservations for its full-size EV pickup.
Watch Five Pickup Trucks Try To Invoke The Usain Bolt Spirit In Them In This Drag Race
The folks at ‘The Fast Lane Truck’ conducted a drag race with not two, but five different pickup trucks. They had trucks across segments, starting from the Ford Maverick and the Hyundai Santa Cruz, to the Nissan Frontier, the Toyota Tundra, and the Ford F-150 Raptor. This wasn’t a conventional race wherein you just had all five trucks go at it together. It was more of a gauntlet match wherein the winner of a race faced a new truck in the next round and the loser got eliminated. Sounds a little like Squid Game, doesn’t it?
Elon Musk Confirms That The Tesla Cybertruck With Four Electric Motors Is Coming!
There were rumors of a quad-motor setup making the cut in the Cybertruck, and the EV czar, Elon Musk, has now confirmed the same. Replying to a tweet, Musk said that a four-motor variant will hit the production line first. What’s more, the truck will also have Tank Turn and Crab modes! Talk about taking the Rivian R1T and the GMC Hummer EV’s most-talked features.
Thanks To The F-150 Lightning, Ford Is Aiming To Be The 2nd Largest EV Manufacturer
While Tesla continues to lead the electric vehicle (EV) sales race, Ford is aiming to become the second-largest EV manufacturer within the next two years. This is thanks to the huge interest that was generated by the F-150 Lightning, which will reach customers by Spring 2022, ahead of Tesla’s Cybertruck.
Here’s What the Cybertruck Would Look Like if BMW Owned Tesla
Have you ever wondered what the Cybertruck is really missing? The answer is not a futuristic look - we can tell you that for sure! What the truck is really missing is a grille! Of course it doesn’t need one since we are talking about an electric vehicle, but Superrenderscars came with the perfect solution.

Every automaker is on the cusp of announcing ambitious plans to switch to electrification. While some have jumped the wagon, some are still on the verge of doing it. The latest automaker to do so is the Japanese giant Nissan. Nissan has revealed its ‘Nissan Ambition 2030’ plan that includes 23 electrified models coming out of the automaker’s stable this decade.

Mitsubishi Ralliart’s Comeback Is All Show And No Go
As part of their updated "Small but Beautiful" midterm plan, Mitsubishi Motors is doing a lot of things to bring back the brand’s "Mitsubishi Motors-ness". The revival of Ralliart is one of them, but oh boy you’ll be disappointed on how this famed motorsport sub-brand made its comeback.
