0

Legendary Hummer pickup truck is making a huge comeback. This time as an all-electric vehicle. The 2022 GMC Hummer EV made a huge debut on the commercial during the Super Bowl. This commercial features LeBron James and the slogan for the new Hummer is “quiet dominance.” According to GMC, Hummer will produce 1000 horsepower, and it will arrive with an impressive acceleration.

Moreover, the exterior will look quite astonishing and modern. Interior details are not available yet, but we can expect a very upright cabin. The 2021 Hummer EV will try to rival Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1T models. The sales will start at the beginning of 2022.

2022 Hummer EV Exterior Design

The approaching 2022 GMC Hummer EV will feature a very modern and upscale appearance. So far, we’ve seen this model in the commercial and it was a teaser image. However, the commercial was showing an iconic six-slat grille with modern „HUMMER’ letterings. The illuminated grille looks perfect, and it looks astonishing next to the squared-off LED headlights. Below, Hummer will host a large vent opening with „GMC“ badge in the middle. Moreover, fender flares are looking bolder.

The commercial didn’t show skid plate, but it is surely somewhere under these elements. We must say the lighting system is quite impressive, and even the lights on the roof are available. Unfortunately, the rest of the exterior is not available yet. We have no doubts that the new Hummer will look great once it arrives.

Engine Specs, Acceleration

If you are a hardcore old-school Hummer’s V8 engine, sorry. New 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be an all-electric pickup truck. According to General Motors, Hummer will produce up to 1000 horsepower. The horses in the commercial are clearly symbolising great power. Interestingly, but the manufacturer also promises 11,500 lb-ft of torque, which is impossible. It’s the way the GMC quotes these figures, but they are misleading. For that reason, we don’t know how much twisting power will this pickup provide.

Moreover, GMC said the all-new Hummer EV would accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. It would be amazing if General Motors delivers promised figures, until then, we’ll leave a question mark on this subject. On the other hand, Hummer pickup will surely deliver great power with impressive towing capacity. Moreover, this model will offer a standard AWD system.

2022 Hummer vs 2021 Tesla Cybertruck

It is too early to say, but Hummer’s biggest competitor will be a Tesla Cybertruck. At this moment, we can’t make a full comparison because General Motors didn’t provide all of the details. However, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV will surely be a strong competitor to Cybertruck or Rivian R1T model. No doubts, both Hummer and Cybertruck will provide similar figures in terms of power, range, towing capacity and acceleration.

On the other hand, Hummer will definitely look better than the odd-looking Tesla’s pickup truck. This could be a huge advantage for the GMC and its more conventional model. Unfortunately, Cybertruck will be a more affordable model.

2022 GMC Hummer EV Price and Release Date

In terms of price, the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV will cost closer to the Rivian R1T pickup truck. That means the price could start between $60,000 and $70,000. On the other hand, Tesla Cybertruck will cost significantly less, only $40,000. General Motors will build its newest model in Detroit, the same plant that produces Cadillac Escalade. The brand-new Hummer will go on sale at the beginning of 2022.

0

The upcoming 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade has been introduced at the Chicago Auto Show. That means Toyota expanded the Nightshade treatment to three models now: Tacoma, Tundra, and Sequoia. Moreover, models such as Camry, Corolla, and Sienna are already offering the Nightshade version.

When it comes to the company’s trucks, Nightshade versions are limited to 5,000 units. If you opt for this model, you will get a dark appearance, unique color choices, premium cabin, and much more. Look at the Nightshade as an appearance package because nothing will change mechanically.

2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade exterior

2021 Tundra Nightshade Looks Really Premium

Here’s an interesting fact. Most of the Nightshade Editions are based on Toyota’s SE trim level. However, pickup trucks are based on the upper Limited trim level. That means the 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade will be a very premium model. It makes a real stand out with its dark appearance. You will find plenty of black trims, especially on the side mirror caps and door handles. Moreover, darkened chrome grille is one of the exterior highlights.

The same grille sports new insert design. On top of that, front fascia comes with black fog light bezels and exhaust tip. To the sides, an 18-inch Dark Smoke alloy wheels are offered as standard. The very same rims can be found on the current Tacoma Nightshade model. As for the Tundra, it is available in Midnight Black Metallic and Magnetic Gray Metallic exterior colors. Unlike Sequoia, Tundra and Tacoma are also offering optional Windchill Pearl Look and Super White paints.

Luxury Interior You Need to Have

The all-new 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade will also get further interior improvements. Of course, the interior is also black. Unlike the other Nightshade editions, Tundra is based on the Limited trim level. Thanks to that, Tundra Nightshade will arrive with plenty of luxury. That includes black leather upholstery, badging, more standard equipment, and larger displays.

Overall, Tundra is getting some serious refreshments, so the Nightshade version will also benefit from it. You can expect an all-new touchscreen and more driver-assistance features. Everything inside will look more modern now, and more upright as well.

There Will Be No Mechanical Changes

Here’s the best thing about every Tundra model. This pickup will arrive with a new twin-turbo engine. The 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade pickup will also feature new powertrain. It is a 3.5-liter V6 that also powers the current Lexus LS500. However, exact engine specs are not available yet. According to our sources, a 10-speed automatic transmission will be offered as standard.

A 4.6-liter and 5.7-liter V8 should remain in the engine lineup. That means the 2021 Tundra will arrive with three different outputs. You can have a new Tundra Nightshade Edition with either a two or four-wheel-drive system.

2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade Price and Release Date

As we said, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade will join the Camry, Corolla, 4Runner, and Sienna models. Moreover, Tacoma and Sequoia will also feature the very same treatment. The price is not available yet, but don’t expect anything affordable.

After all, Tundra’s Nightshade is based on the Limited trim level, which is a premium version. Unfortunately, this variant will be sold in 5,000 units only. The upcoming model will reach the markets this Summer.

2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner – A New 600HP Wild Off-Road Truck

0

The all-new 2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner could represent a real refreshment in the mid-size pickup truck segment. Unlike the regular Frontier, Desert Runner is a more aggressive version with ultimate off-road abilities. Frontier is a very reliable and proven model, and it also comes with a tradition. However, Nissan clearly feels that the lineup needs something wilder.

Now, the 2021 Frontier Desert Runner is almost here, and it will add something new to the company’s portfolio. As for the regular Frontier pickup, we are expecting a redesign. Surely, Desert Runner will wear most of the Frontier’s styling and features. You can expect great performances and so much more.

2021 Frontier Desert Runner Gets Titan’s Styling

The upcoming 2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner will add aggressiveness to the company’s lineup of models. As we already wrote, a new 2021 Frontier should arrive with a redesign. Thanks to that, the Desert Runner version could also wear plenty of novelties. So, what is Desert Runner? It is a very wild pickup truck based on the concept. It comes with a 37-inch Baja BFGoodrich tires and 17-inch TurboMac Fifteen52 HD Beadlock wheels.

Styling is quite impressive, and this truck makes a real standout in the crowd. Moreover, bumpers are larger, along with the fenders. Optionally, you can buy an off-road lighting system as well. The front fascia sports almost the same headlights and grille. Unlike the regular model, Desert Runner offers more ground clearance.

2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner equipment

Interior Looks Sportier

The interior of the new 2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner is mostly a carryover. Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer is trying to deliver a somewhat sporty vibe inside the cabin. However, racing seats are not enough, in our opinion. A quick-release steering wheel is a great addition, to be honest.

The Sparco steering wheel is deploying the quick-release adapter, which could save your life during the serious off-road adventures. Besides that, Nissan is providing the same interior layout with the same displays and a slightly longer list of standard amenities.

New V8 Powertrain

Here’s the most interesting part. The forthcoming 2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner will use a different engine. Frontier is using a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated V6 engine. However, this naturally-aspirated unit is not available in the Desert Runner variant. Instead, the Japanese manufacturer will offer a larger 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine. This potent powertrain can be found under the bonnet of the new Titan pickup.

Moreover, a Garrett GTX3584RS turbocharger is added too. Nissan also offers a new exhaust system, new suspension, and new intercooler. Furthermore, the automaker changed camshafts, pistons, and valves. New Desert Runner will pack around 600 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, it will use a 6-speed manual gearbox. That means the 7-speed automatic transmission is also gone.

2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner Price and Release Date

According to numerous reports, Nissan won’t sell this model immediately. The 2021 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner should become available next year. On the other hand, the Japanese carmaker is finally getting something new and more aggressive.

This model will directly rival models such as Ford F-150 Raptor, Ram Rebel TRX, and Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison. We are still waiting for pricing details.

2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup is Coming to The South America

0

The all-new 2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup is getting numerous updates. Interestingly, the pickup is based on the Mobi, a city car that is available in South American markets. And just like the car variant, a pickup truck will also feature smaller dimensions, and it will be available in South America. Moreover, this model is closely related to the Fiat Fiorino model.

This model is replacing the Fiat Strada, aka Ram 700. As for the Mobi Pickup, it could feature a different name once it arrives. After Toro, Mobi will be the second company’s pickup. The latest spy shots are available, so let’s find out more about Fiat’s latest model.

2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup spy shots

2021 Mobi Pickup Spy Shots

The upcoming 2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup will look rugged, especially up front. The latest spy shots are available, and we can finally see what Italian automaker has to offer. Heavy camouflage isn’t helping at all, but most of the exterior is visible. For a start, it is clear as day that the pickup is based on the Mobi hatchback model. Moreover, Mobi will be closely related to the Fiorino model as well. It is a four-door pickup truck that also offers a relatively large bed.

A longer wheelbase is visible at first glance, and we like Fiat’s SUV-like body cladding. Under the camo, we expect the same 3D grille with the Fiat’s badge in the center. The side profile comes with a beautiful character line that rises toward the back of the vehicle. The end of the vehicle hosts a large bad that will surely offer around 26 cubic feet of space. Finally, rectangular taillights are looking very modern and distinctive.

2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup spy photos

Interior Specs

Just like the car version, the new 2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup will be an affordable model without fancy stuff inside the cabin. Whatsoever, hatchback and pickup truck will be very similar in terms of interior design. Don’t expect plenty of luxury and high-tech features at all. Unfortunately, the cabin is looking cheap, but this is a logical move as Mobi will be sold in South America.

The competition is not so heavy as in North America, so it does make perfect sense. However, the legroom is pretty decent. We like the design of the center stack and its upper and lower sections. The infotainment display is small, and we just hope to see a larger and optional unit. The rest of the interior will be straightforward and comfort is solid rather than good.

2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup interior

Mobi Will Borrow Engine Lineup from Strada and Fiorino

Once it arrives, the brand-new 2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup will deploy two engine options. Logically, Mobi will share engine lineup with other Fiat models in South America, mainly Strada and Fiorino. With that in mind, a 1.4-liter will be a standard option, and it will produce 84 hp and 90 lb-ft of torque. Larger 1.8-liter gasoline will be optional.

This engine will generate around 130 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque. As for the transmission, a five-speed manual is the most likely outcome for both engine options. AWD system won’t be in the offer, so expect a regular front-wheel-drive setup.

2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup Price and Release Date

This small pickup truck will replace the Strada model, and it will cost about the same. New 2021 Fiat Mobi Pickup will start at $13,500. Its main rivals are Chevy Montana and Volkswagen Saveiro. As we said, Mobi will become available in South America exclusively. We can expect this model in the coming months.

2021 GMC Sierra AT4 – A Perfect Off-Road Pickup Truck

0

The forthcoming 2021 GMC Sierra AT4 is a very unique and special pickup truck. Moreover, it is one of the most exciting models for 2021 in the pickup truck segment. According to General Motors, AT4 trim level will become available on basically all company vehicles in a two-year time.

Besides regular Sierra 1500, Sierra HD lineup also offers AT4 edition. You can expect the same treatment on new Acadia as well. Moreover, AT4 will replace the All-Terrain trim level. For 2021, Sierra AT4 will suffer small refinements, but you can expect one or two essential updates.

2021 GMC Sierra AT4 facelift

2021 Sierra AT4 Exterior Facelift

As for the design, the new 2021 GMC Sierra AT4 will look like a classic off-road pickup truck. It adds more aggressiveness than the regular model, and its ride is taller. More precisely, AT4 adds two additional inches of ground clearance. This will provide a better off-road capability for sure. Its commanding stance is perfectly combined with a subtle design. This model also offers plenty of blacked-out exterior features.

The front grille is finished in dark chrome and bumpers are looking bolder than on the base trim level. Red tow hooks are available as standard, along with 18-inch wheels. The same rims are wrapped in Micheline all-terrain tires. Optionally, you can buy 20-inch wheels. GM will also add special suspension, Eaton rear locking differential, and Rancho shocks.

Interior Details

Inside the cabin, the next 2021 GMC Sierra AT4 will look more modern. You can expect new technologies and more driver-assistance features. Moreover, GM offers darkened trims and gorgeous leather upholstery. However, the highlight of this interior is a new 15-inch head-up display. This unit comes with an inclinometer. New Sierra AT4 will also provide a standard traction select system and new off-road mode. Additionally, hill descent control and hill start assist are offered as standard.

Diesel Engine, Transmission, Towing Capacity

The arriving model will ride on a proven 5.3-liter V8 diesel engine. This unit is capable of producing 277 hp and up to 460 lb-ft of torque. According to General Motors, the AT4 model will add 37 lb-ft, which makes almost 500 lb-ft of twisting power. A similar thing will happen to the Sierra HD AT4 models, and towing capacity will be rated at 21,300. Many experts are saying that the Sierra AT4 delivers better ride quality than the Silverado model. However, for Sierra AT4 will be enough to beat Ram Rebel, another model that uses a diesel engine. Finally, GM provides a 10-speed automatic gearbox and a standard four-wheel-drive system. This pickup truck will be rated at 22 mpg combined.

2021 GMC Sierra AT4 Price and Release Date

New GM’s pickup truck will cost $56,000. The upcoming 2021 GMC Sierra AT4 starts in line with the rest of the competitors. Again, the AT4 trim level will replace the All-Terrain variant. Moreover, General Motors will look to deliver AT4 trim to all of its new models. The sales will start in the last quarter of 2020.

2022 Toyota Tacoma: Redesign, Rumors, Release Date

0

The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Tacoma is getting further updates. Will new Tacoma remain one of the best-selling models in the U.S.? According to the latest reports, yes. Tacoma has been a subject of numerous speculations in the last few weeks. Many stories are even predicting the new-generation model. If that really happens, we can expect a complete redesign.

That also includes the interior overhaul and possibly a new engine. More precisely, a hybrid powertrain is the main rumor at the moment. Toyota is making Tacoma better year after year, and the new-gen model is the perfect answer for the markets. With that in mind, no doubt that the all-new 2022 Tacoma will remain one of the most reliable models in the pickup truck segment.

2022 Toyota Tacoma redesign

2022 Tacoma Exterior Redesign. Will it Happen?

Toyota provides a new-gen model every nine or ten years. For that reason, a new 2022 Toyota Tacoma is less likely to get a complete redesign. It is a rumor after all, but it could become a reality. We predict something closer to the mid-cycle refreshments. Surely, the total exterior revamp would be more welcoming, but we’ll have to wait a couple of years more. The current generation is on the market since 2016, so do the math by yourself.

On the other hand, the 2022 Tacoma will still gain a couple of essential updates. For a start, this pickup truck will arrive with small changes on the front fascia. Moreover, even the rear part should get new taillights. The bumpers will be enlarged as well, but not significantly. According to our sources, F1 architecture will underpin the 2022 model.

2022 Toyota Tacoma facelift

Interior Will Gain More Modernity

The cabin of the brand-new 2022 Toyota Tacoma will also gain mid-cycle improvements. The approaching mid-size pickup truck will get more high-quality materials, and the level of comfort will be higher this time. Furthermore, Toyota will look to deliver more technology. Thanks to that, a list of standard amenities will be longer than ever before.

An 8-inch display should be offered as standard. However, the base trim level should arrive with a new, larger, and optional unit. Upper trim levels, such as TRD PRO, will also provide more luxury. Exact interior details are not available at the moment. However, we bet on at least one new color scheme and possibly more driver-assistance features.

2022 Toyota Tacoma interior

Engine Specs and Hybrid Rumors

A hybrid powertrain is the highlight of the latest speculation. It does make sense, to be honest. Toyota’s F1 platform can accommodate a hybrid system, so the rumors are looking realistic. The upcoming 2022 Toyota Tacoma could gain a diesel-hybrid combination, according to some stories.

Still, this is a wild guess at the moment, and only Toyota knows what will happen with the 2022 Tacoma. One thing is sure, Tacoma’s current engine lineup will most likely get more power and slightly improved fuel-efficiency. As always before, a 2.7-liter and 3.5-liter V6 engines should be in the offer.

2022 Toyota Tacoma Price and Release Date

In terms of price, the arriving 2022 Toyota Tacoma should cost slightly above the current model. The reason is the latest mid-cycle refreshments. That means we can expect for Tacoma to cost around $31,500. As for the release date, Toyota didn’t say anything about this matter. However, the most realistic time is the second half of 2022.

2021 Lordstown Endurance Electric Pickup Truck That Starts at $52,500

0

The brand-new 2021 Lordstown Endurance is one of the upcoming trucks you should pay special attention to. At the moment, the demand for this interesting model isn’t that high. However, if you wait for a little more, you’re going to realize how cool this model is. So what is Endurance? It is an all-electric pickup truck produced by Lordstown Motors.

This model will be made in one of General Motors’ former plant in Ohio. According to numerous reports, this model will cost around $50,000. It will try to rival other newcomers such as Bollinger, Tesla, and Rivian pickup trucks. You can expect a very cool design from Endurance, a modern interior, and great performances.

2021 Lordstown Endurance exterior

2021 Endurance Comes With Futuristic Design

Interestingly, all of the upcoming all-electric SUVs and trucks are looking very futuristic. It seems like no one wants to risk with a traditional design anymore. The 2021 Lordstown Endurance is another such a model that will feature a very modern and futuristic design. Surely, Endurance won’t look odd as Tesla Cybertruck, which is great. From the side, this model is very similar to the Ford F-150 pickup. On the other hand, the side profile looks cleaner and the shape is different.

The front fascia hosts a closed grille with a Lordstown badge in the middle of it. The headlights are very sleek and attractive. However, we don’t like the side mirrors that are too big for our taste. Lordstown provides amazing bodywork and gorgeous lines. The wheels are a perfect fit as not a single feature looks too aggressive or anything similar.

2021 Lordstown Endurance rear

Interior Specs

At this point, we don’t have exact interior details. Surely, the forthcoming 2021 Lordstown Endurance will provide a unique interior design that also looks very modern. Unlike Cybertruck, Endurance pickup will offer something different. For a start, a large display is available and most of the controls are touch-sensitive.

Moreover, the cabin is less futuristic and it offers plenty of traditional features. According to the latest reports, there will be room for five people. Moreover, this model will provide a lot of luxuries such as leather seats, high safety ratings, and other premium amenities.

Engine Details, Power, Driving Range

Again, we don’t know all of the mechanical details. New 2021 Lordstown Endurance will get a four-motor configuration. That means a four-wheel-drive setup is offered as standard. From what we know, the Endurance pickup truck will provide around 600 horsepower. On the company’s website, you can see Lordstown’s promises such as 200-plus miles of driving range.

The battery capacity is a huge mystery at the moment, unfortunately. However, Lordstown did say that the battery will take 10 hours at 7kW to charge from zero to 95 percent. Furthermore, DC charging will be possible. Endurance will tow up to 6,000 pounds but the top speed and acceleration figures are still not available.

2021 Lordstown Endurance grille

2021 Lordstown Endurance Price and Release Date

You can already pre-order the new 2021 Lordstown Endurance. The price will start at $52,500 and the reservations can be completed on the official website. To compare, Tesla Cybertruck will cost less but we need to see full vehicle specifications. The sales will start at some point in 2021, most likely in the first quarter of the year.

2021 Ford F-450 Gains Better Interior and More Torque

0

The all-new 2021 Ford F-450 will get numerous upgrades. Blue Oval manufacturer is looking to improve its complete heavy-duty lineup, so F-350 and F-450 models are the first in line for more drastic changes. Moreover, Ram and Chevrolet are also updating their models, so Ford needs to stay competitive. For that reason, you can expect numerous changes.

For a start, 2021 F-450 will arrive with an improved cabin. On the other hand, exterior changes are minor, and a new model will look almost the same as its predecessor. Performance is great, and we can expect small improvements in this segment. F-450 will remain practical, and it will be available in numerous trim levels and cab configurations.

2021 Ford F-450 Lariat

2021 F-450 Exterior Changes

Currently, we don’t have official info about the latest design changes. Whatsoever, the 2021 Ford F-450 has been caught on camera, so the first spy shots are available. Unfortunately, spy shots are showing basically the same model as 2020 F-450. For that reason, we don’t expect such major upgrades. The boxy shape will largely remain, along with the vehicle’s dimensions. The only difference we see is upfront, where the grille looks slightly wider.

Headlights are unchanged, and we can only hope for more chrome accents around the grille. If you want more luxury, go for the Premium or Limited trim levels. Moreover, Ford is offering its F-450 in single and double cab setups. According to the latest rumors, King Ranch trim level will become available once again.

Interior Gets Numerous Updates

We didn’t see any of the interior details on the latest spy photos. However, the new 2021 Ford F-450 will surely get numerous changes on the inside. It’s a direct Ford’s response to Ram and Chevrolet and their new interiors. Some would say this is getting out of hand. Pickup trucks, especially heavy-duty pickup, should serve to get the work done. No one actually cares about the level of luxury inside the cabin. We disagree, and we can’t wait to see how the new F-450 will look from the inside.

Surely, this is raising the price of the vehicles, but if you want something less premium that gets the job done, you can still find something similar. Anyway, F-450 will gain a higher level of comfort, new optional display, and possibly a new upholstery. Moreover, chrome and wood trims are now more visible and are providing a more luxurious feel. On the other hand, the interior layout won’t change at all.

2021 Ford F-450 interior

Ford Promises More Power

The big news for basically all of Ford’s super-duty trucks is a new V8 gasoline engine. A 7.3-liter comes with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. On top of that, it provides 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. We don’t know what will happen with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates 350 horses and 430 lb-ft of twisting power. Removing this engine from the offers seems to be the most realistic outcome.

Lastly, a 6.7-liter V8 diesel engine is available, and it is optional. It can produce 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque. However, Ford said that V8 would be rated at 1050 lb-ft in 2021. Moreover, Ford promises 24,200 pounds of conventional towing capacity. On the other hand, the maximum towing capacity with a Gooseneck is rated at 37,000 pounds.

The price of the current F-450 starts at $50,000. We don’t know how much will new 2021 Ford F-450 cost after the latest interior and performance upgrades. The range-topping Limited trim level will be priced at $90,000. Ford will release its super-duty lineup in the second half of 2020.

2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD Will Host Additional Updates

0

The forthcoming 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD is getting numerous upgrades later this year. This heavy-duty pickup truck will introduce plenty of changes, but it is still far from a complete redesign. More importantly, GM will deliver a couple of Silverado’s styling cues to its new Sierra HD lineup. The plan is to create a recognizable design language so the two models will look more similar. According to the latest reports, Sierra will suffer the most upgrades upfront.

Once it arrives, you’ll be able to see all the similarities with the Silverado pickup truck. On top of that, GM plans to offer more standard equipment and additional optional amenities that are completely new. As before, Sierra will arrive in three different cab configurations and four trim levels. The price should remain, just like the truck’s performance.

2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD facelift

2021 Sierra 3500 HD Exterior Changes

The all-new 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD is one very capable pickup truck that looks exactly like that. This model looks very aggressive and rugged. On the other hand, it wears such a subtle and stylish design that is more SUV-like than truckish. Some parts are clearly taken from the Sierra 1500 pickup. Now, the next Sierra will also borrow a couple of cues from the Silverado model. That includes numerous changes on the front fascia.

The front grille is larger, and the headlights are reshaped. In the back, Sierra 3500 HD will host a new Corner Step system. This feature is optional on the base trim level and standard on the upper trims. The pickup truck continues to ride on its nice-looking 18-inch wheels. The range-topping Denali trim level is a thing of luxury. It comes with additional chrome accents, and it adds the MultiPro tailgate system as well.

Interior Updates

On the inside, a new 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD looks very modern, and it feels comfortable. Again, most of the interior is taken from the Sierra 1500 model. The new cabin will host a couple of minor upgrades. Even without the latest changes, the interior is one of the best-in-segment. Air vents are finished in a new shape that looks more modern. We like the subtle finishes around the dash, and the interior layout is very practical. We don’t expect new displays or any other significant changes. The only difference will be new optional amenities and a slightly longer list of standard features.

Still, if you want real luxury, you’ll have to go for the Denali trim level. This version offers a new 15-inch head-up display, leather seats, and heated steering wheel. More importantly, all of these amenities are offered as standard. Denali also adds numerous wood and chrome accents, which provides more premium feel inside the cabin. Like in the years before, crew cab configuration offers a room for six passengers.

Same Engine Lineup

You shouldn’t expect any changes under the hood in 2021. Sierra HD lineup continues with the same three powertrain options. The 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD will arrive with a standard 6.0-liter displacement. This engine generates 300 horses and 333 lb-ft of torque. The same engine with higher output is optional, and it provides 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of twisting power.

Lastly, a 6.6-liter Duramax engine is available and is optional. This turbodiesel V8 is rated at 445 horsepower. More importantly, its 910 lb-ft of torque makes diesel a perfect choice for towing capabilities. Whatsoever, Sierra 3500 HD can tow almost 24,000 pounds. Interestingly, all three available engines are available with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD Price and Release Date

The approaching 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 HD will cost the same as the current version. The price of the base trim level starts at $38,000.

2021 F-150 Hybrid Exterior Redesign

Before we write anything about a possible redesign, have in mind the vehicle’s shape and dimensions will largely remain. The forthcoming 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid will look the same as the regular gasoline version. The changes are noticeable both on the front and rear fascia. For a start, Blue Oval manufacturer will introduce new headlights and taillights.

Moreover, new bumpers and door-mounted wing mirrors are available. The very same mirrors were previously mounted on the A-pillars. Now, mirrors will provide even better visibility. Ford will improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle as well. It seems like the 2021 F-150 is larger, but it isn’t.

Interior Changes

On the inside, the new-gen 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid will also get some major improvements. You can expect a more luxurious cabin, especially on the upper trim levels. Moreover, Blue Oval will install additional high-tech features and the infotainment system will get essential updates.

The rear passengers could get an entertainment system, but this is just a rumor at the moment. All F-150 trim levels and versions will get a larger touchscreen and higher levels of comfort as well. The interior room is unchanged and generally, the layout will largely remain.

Hybrid Powertrain Specs, MPG

The all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid will use a “modular hybrid technology”. This tech is designed on a rear-wheel-drive system that uses a 10-speed automatic transmission. The very same gearbox is co-developed by Ford and GM. Thanks to that, the electric motor is wedged between the transmission and the internal-combustion engine. The complexity of this configuration is simpler and it also saves money. To this date, we can’t say the exact power figures.

From what we know, the very same system will power new Ford Explorer. An electric motor will provide an additional 44 horsepower. The most likely candidate for a hybrid setup is a 3.3-liter V6. This engine is producing 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. According to Blue Oval manufacturer, this setup will provide around 500 miles of driving range.

2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid Price and Release Date

The next-gen 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid will cost more than the base trim level. Regular gasoline F-150 starts at $30,000 while the range-topping Limited trim is priced at $70,000. As for the hybrid version, it should cost between $35,000 and $40,000. We don’t know when exactly will Blue Oval release F-150 Hybrid pickup. Most likely, it will arrive at the same time as the rest of the F-150 models. That means we can expect this iconic pickup truck to go on sale in the second half of 2020.
