The Best Features Of The 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser https://www.hotcars.com/1978-toyota-land-cruiser-best-features/
Back in the day, around halfway through the twentieth century, representatives of the U.S. Army entered talks with Toyota to request a vehicle suitable for the needs of their soldiers that were stationed in Japan at the time. The result was an immensely capable and heavy duty four-wheel truck, similar to the likes of the Jeeps and Land Rovers that were already popular in Western Europe and America.

The pickup truck concept is pretty straightforward. Take a cab, an engine, and a big bed in the back to carry whatever you need. Somewhere down the line, someone got the idea to take the powerful engines from these trucks and put them in smaller cars, and the mighty hot rod was born. Small business coupes and 'secretary cars' were now road-pounding speed demons.

10 Most Expensive Pickup Trucks To Maintain https://www.hotcars.com/10-most-expensive-pickup-trucks-to-maintain/
Whether you are looking for a brand-new or used pickup truck, an important factor you can't ignore is the maintenance and repair costs. While reliable pickup trucks tend to have lower maintenance costs, you have to investigate further because replacing just a part of that reliable truck can take over $500 from your bank account. Maintenance and repair costs for pickups are usually based on the segment’s size categories. That means you will usually spend more on maintaining a heavy-duty or full-size half-ton pickup than a compact or midsize model.

Hyundai has been in the business of making cars for a while now. Its foray into the luxury segment wasn’t as successful as the Korean marque had hoped. The Hyundai Genesis sedan wasn’t a bad idea, but having “Hyundai” in its name took away the premium feel—a requisite in that price range. However, Hyundai is quick to admit mistakes and learn from them. Lo and behold, Genesis is now a standalone brand, a strategy Hyundai should’ve implemented when it launched the sedan in 2008.

This Ford Bronco 6x6 Is Called The Apocalypse Dark Horse https://www.hotcars.com/this-ford-bronco-6x6-is-called-the-apocalypse-dark-horse/
Originally developed as a compact off-road vehicle, Ford Bronco was developed into a sport utility vehicle in the 1960s. The next three decades saw the Ford beast dominate roads before it was discontinued in 1996. What followed was a 25-year hiatus of the Bronco nameplate. The American automotive company confirmed the return of the Bronco at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, and the yesteryear legend - now in its sixth generation - was reintroduced in 2021. On March 27, 2021, the first production Bronco, a First Edition, sold for $1,075,000, at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auto Auction. The entire amount was donated to a charity that the American automotive giant helped establish to help preserve forests. Fast-forward to 2022, the 2021 Ford Bronco model has generated plenty of hype among automobile lovers. We've seen multiple personalized variants of the Ford monster, but there's one customized model that's stood out compared to the rest. Dubbed as the Dark Horse, the said Ford Bronco model - a 6x6 model - has been generating plenty of buzz in the automotive circle recently.

25 Useless 4X4s You Should Never Use Off Road (Or On It) https://www.hotcars.com/useless-4x4s-you-should-never-use-off-road-or-on-it/
Off-roading symbolizes man’s victory over nature. The idea of man versus nature has been the center of stories throughout history. Depicted in stories from hand-painted cave walls to orated poems in amphitheaters to Hollywood silver screens, this conflict has always intrigued the masses. Since the dawn of the 4x4 in the early 20th century—when man ostensibly triumphed over nature—there has been a plethora of four-wheel drive vehicles available to car buyers around the world. A four-wheel drive vehicle—also known as 4x4—offer owners the ability to break away from the beaten path to uncharted areas. The engines in these vehicles power all four wheels, hence where it gets its name. Unlike a front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, a vehicle has more traction with all four wheels getting power. This makes rugged terrain a breeze to navigate.

Destroying vehicles while looking badass–this tends to be of the utmost importance when it comes to monster trucks and their success. Among the best Monster Jam trucks these days are Bigfoot, Grave Digger, Maximum Destruction, and Monster Mutt. Yes, they all contain powerful names but are fully backed up, given their performances on the dirt circuits. In this article, we put the likes of greats like Captain’s Curse aside. Instead, we feature 10 unfortunate cases of monster trucks getting completely abandoned. It really isn’t difficult to understand why these rides get abandoned in the first place. There aren’t many options for trucks from the '70s or the '80s that might be extremely outdated. It’s not like you can just ride around the block with such rides. For that reason, these 10, in particular, have been completely neglected over the years.

These Were The Coolest Features Of The 1991 GMC Syclone https://www.hotcars.com/these-were-the-coolest-features-of-the-1991-gmc-syclone/
How useful is a pickup truck that can only carry 500 lbs in its bed and tow 2000 lbs? Not very, unless your criteria for a pickup truck isn't hauling lugage, but winning drag races. In which case, GMC had the truck for you in 1991. Today, GMC is seen as a more luxurious alternative to Chevy trucks, but in the early 1990s, GMC wanted it to be a sporty companion to the bowtie brand. This led it to create the Syclone, an S-15 pickup with a 280-hp turbocharged V-6 capable of keeping pace with most sports cars of the day. Controversially, including the big-dog Corvette.

Ranking The Best Pickup Trucks Of The 2000s https://www.hotcars.com/ranking-best-pickup-trucks-of-the-2000s/
Pickup trucks have been pretty much the same for most of the late 20th century. Automakers were still stuck with the tried and tested design language of rugged looks, functional interiors, and a massive power unit at the front. No one imagined that a pickup truck would evolve to include the latest in tech, improved ride comfort, better-looking interiors, and the addition of a luxury trim for some models. That revolution occurred in the 2000s.

Why The Lincoln Nautilus Is A Seriously Underrated 2022 SUV https://www.hotcars.com/2022-lincoln-nautilus-underrated-suv/
Over the past decade, the luxury SUV market has proliferated. Saying the segment is highly competitive does the market a disservice. Not only does the market have enough models to provide an example for every niche and whim, but does so twofold. Amongst the tidal wave of luxury, performance, and off-road luxury SUVs some models disappear into the fray. With them so do some customers' interest. Carrying large price tags, it’s hard to find a genuinely bad model. However, one that so far slips beneath many drivers’ radars is the 2022 SUV Lincoln Nautilus.

The Reason 2022 Kia SUVs Are Attracting Buyers Today https://www.hotcars.com/reason-2022-kia-suvs-attract-buyers/
Over the past few years, Kia has drawn attention from the motoring press. Their first standout car, the Kia Stinger, took the fight to the BMW M3. For many, the EV6 is far cooler than anything at Tesla. The Picanto, Rio, and Ceed models rival the likes of Volkswagen and Renault across Europe. But stealthily making the bulk of the brand’s sales are their offerings in the SUV market. A market first popularized by the Range Rover, BMW X5, and the Mercedes-Benz M Class, over two decades the benefits of SUV ownership are available to more people than before.

Nearly 20 years ago, Infiniti introduced a new segment of vehicles that had the practicality of an SUV and the performance of a sports car. The car was named Infiniti FX and became an instant hit among fans and automobile enthusiasts in general. The biggest reason behind this success was that it was built on Nissan’s famous FM platform. What made the platform special was that it was shared with the Nissan 350Z, an amazing sports car, and utilizing the platform for an SUV was never done before.

Perhaps it's the $38,000 starting price sitting on the Ridgeline. Or maybe it's the size of the Tundra that scares many away. Those concerns are why Ford decided an entry-level truck was necessary.

Ford has revealed the new Ford Everest. The third-generation model is the SUV form of the US-bound Ranger pick-up truck. Ford is expected to introduce the Ranger to the global market before the Everest. The Everest has largely been a product designed for the Australian and Asian markets in mind.

Vegas Rat Rods: WelderUp Found One Of Its Old Classic Builds From Season One https://www.hotcars.com/vegas-rat-rods-welderup-classic-build-season-one/
General Motors have for the longest time now been creators of vehicles fit for their purpose and a whole lot else. Though GMC products have always been capable and dependable vehicles, they've always somewhat lacked the character that is found amongst other brands. As a result, they have often been the subject of wild and creative transformations carried out by the crazy bunch over at custom shop WelderUp of Vegas Rat Rods fame. One in particular that avid watchers of the show will remember is the Cummins Diesel-swapped 1954 Cab-over engine Truck from the days of Vegas Rat Rods. Around nine years have passed since the truck originally left the shop following its restoration, and it doesn't appear that the years have been terribly kind. Despite this, the talented boys over at WelderUp have every intention of bringing the old girl back from the dead and returning her to her former glory.

Here's Why The Jeep Wrangler's Reliability Score Is So Low https://www.hotcars.com/jeep-wrangler-reliability-why-score-low/
Despite the Jeep's status as a beloved American icon, it's had some problems, and it may not be the most reliable vehicle of its kind for drivers to pick. It has endured several recalls, a few of them as recent as 2020. On top of that, its safety ratings aren't always the best, and it tends to have a lot of serious problems that lead to expensive repairs. A lot of said issues would be likely to occur in other vehicles toward the end of their lives; for Jeep Wranglers, these problems occur near the beginning of its life. When asked for a statement regarding the Wrangler's supposed unreliability, Jeep pointed out that, "the reason that the Wrangler has been found to have a low dependability rating is due to the fact that owners romanticize the model. ... Some owners may buy a Wrangler with an idyllic view of the car, but at the end of the day, it's still an off-road SUV.”
