Ford Sends Strong Message To Tesla With 2022 F-150 Lightning, Promises To Shake Up The Segment

The Ford F-Series lineup has been America’s best-selling pickup for 44 years (F-150 Lightning, too) and has also served as an engineering benchmark for the segment as a whole. But while the F-150 has truly gone into some very interesting directions in its attempts to maintain its sales dominance, the one frontier that the F-150 has never ventured into is the world of pure EVs. While the recently launched F-150 hybrid is a good stepping stone for the model, entries like the Tesla Cybertruck and the Rivian R1T prove that EV pickups could be a profitable venture for companies.

Honda’s New Trailsport Logo Revealed In Patent Filing, Suggests Off-Road Models Are Coming

While Honda‘s reputation for creating strong selling vehicles with high build quality is pretty much undisputed, the Japanese car giant has never been known for venturing too far into the off-road segment. This is partly due to the company not offering formal body-on-frame models like an SUV or pickup that could take the punishment often associated with going off the beaten path. However, a leaked patent filing suggests that Honda is eying the trail very seriously with a new Trailsport moniker and is perhaps eying the bigger sales that come with it.   What Could Trailsport Bring To Honda?
