Mercedes-Benz FT2025 Is New Daimler Trucks Flagship

MB FT2025

Why care about the brand-new Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2015 concept shown in Hanover this week for the first time? A few reasons: — The vast majority of S-Class-level active safety and automated driving tech is all-new to the long-haul truck segment — Daimler Trucks is the top-selling medium and heavy truck supplier worldwide, so these ideas will populate everything from future Unimogs to the new Damiler India brand BharatBenz in the coming years — Germans take concepts seriously: these ideas are all totally feasible and likely already headed to full production in the next five years — The active safety is only half the battle: efficiency via aerodynamics is the other half of the coin. The truck and the trailer show revolutionary improvements in drag coefficients, despite no mention of it below. The latest Mercedes-Benz wind tunnel in Sindelfingen is already winning Formula One races, but that is not its …

2015 Toyota TUNDRA Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition Debuts – Available in Gulf States Only

_P9Q8319_DG2_LR copy

Long-time readers of this site may recall how much we hated the Ram Mossy Oak Edition. It seemed overtly hateful with its camo-print exterior and hunting theme. A bit less animosity today toward the new Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition, which could seem as close-minded as the Mossy Oak. After all, Bass Pro Shops is a regional retailer with a heavily partisan corporate stance. But instead of Ram’s shameless Mossy Oak edition, the Tundra BPS Off-Road Edition actually proves its value in extra equipment: cool wheels, off-road tires, fender flares and jumbo exhaust pipes. Ram Trucks response to our criticisms led to a complete embargo of all Ram Trucks coverage here on Car-Revs-Daily.com. It is no accident that there are zero Ram Trucks covered here, and never will be. The BPS Tundra’s appeal is pretty limited for a high-dollar sportsmens’ special — therefore the Tundra BPS is only available …

SCA Lingenfelter REAPER Silverado Upgrade Now Available At Some Chevy Dealers

Reaper gif

The Raptor F-150 has been the single-biggest bit of brand lifting for the current Ford trucks line, so it is no surprise to see other companies following Ford’s lead — in the aftermarket, at least. The latest move to recreate the cool and functional aspects of the Ford Raptor is the new Southern Comfort Automotive REAPER package for the Chevrolet Silverado. Developed with Lingenfelter’s assistance under the hood, the REAPER brings a new look up front, functional LED lighting in the foglamp area, new shocks with a 3-inch lift, and a few other optional tweaks. The supertruck offroad segment is exploding with interest. Almost all Silverado Z71 buyers would love most of these tweaks. To that end, SCA is now a partner with GM and will sell the packages from select Chevrolet and GMC dealers. The prices are likely to be steep, and little here could not be done by …

Toyota_Baja1000_TRDPro_Tundra_001

One thing to consider about racing: it is hot and intense and physical. The constant strain raises drivers’ core temps amid hot cockpits and little rest over the race. On the Baja 1000 — those sensations of any track race are thrown into a rock crusher. The ride is ROUGH at the huge speeds these Baja 1000 competitors hit on the way to the tip of California.
