2017 Ford F-150 Raptor off roading in the desert. This is the first video in a 6 video series that the blue oval plans to roll out over the course of the next six months, no doubt leading up to the fall sales date. Ford took the pickup to the Mojave desert for these videos.

GMC builds a brawnier Sierra All Terrain model. The All Terrain X special edition gets more power, knobbier tires, and blacked-out wheels.

Just in case you were wondering, the second-generation Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will have absolutely no issues on a trip to the beach.

Ford has released some fun video footage of the 2017 F-150 Raptor pickup truck testing in the muddy off-road surroundings of Northern Michigan.

The average Ariel is quite capable of conquering the track. Now the company is turning its eye to the trails with the new, 1600-pound Nomad off-roader. Offering up around 200 horsepower, it won't be "quite as quick as an Atom," but we doubt it'll be any slouch.

You would think that, given the popularity Ford has found for the F-150 SVT Raptor, its crosstown rivals would be all too keen to follow suit. But they haven't. The Ram Runner isn't a production truck, it's an add-on, and General Motors has barely even tried. That might change, but not in the way you might think.

The Nissan Xterra might not be long for this world, according to a report from Edmunds. The rugged SUV, which has always been a bit more of a hardcore, purpose-built vehicle than the rest of the Nissan SUV range. But it has also suffered from slowing sales, low fuel economy relative to the competition and general neglect, as Nissan has focused on other offerings in its range.

Isuzu has taken to advertising its not-for-North-America KB pickup truck with a unique initiative. The company wanted to apply the Google Street View philosophy to some of South Africa's more remote off-road trails, and the result is Isuzu Trail View. Using multiple action cameras situated in a 3D-printed housing strapped to the top of the truck, the crew began bouncing along dirt and rock paths, recording all the while. They also shot additional video and worked with experts to provide excellen

Nearly every automaker doing business in the SUV or pickup truck segments offers a package designed to improve the off-road capabilities of its wares. But, of course, not all such factory kits are created equal. How, then, to separate the wheat from the chaff? Gather each of them up and put them through their paces, naturally.

For the right kind of person, this sounds like an awesome adventure with a Jeep Wrangler. For everyone else, it probably sounds like hell.

Next to the Mercedes G-Class, the Land Rover Defender could be one of the oldest new trucks for sale (although, you can't buy it in the U.S.). The Defender's potential replacement, the DC100 concept, represents Land Rover's most overdue refresh. Making up for lost time, Land Rover has ambitious plans for the DC100, including some state of the art technology.

Be warned, Subaru fans: this video isn't for the faint of heart. According to the YouTube description, an Impreza owner decided to see just how much his car had in common with the screaming machines of the World Rally Championship by submitting it to a torturous, rocky section of fire road. After somehow enduring 12 miles of abuse, the car struck a rock, gouged its oil pan and came to a stop. The vehicle was subsequently abandoned there for some time, whereupon it was graffitti'd as well as stri

Fans of Ford's American SVT and European ST and RS models will have plenty to look forward to in the next few years. As part of the company's One Ford program to consolidate its platforms and designs, SVT and TeamRS have been brought together under a single organization led by Jost Capito. Earlier this week, we sat down for lunch with Jamal Hameedi and Hermann Salenbauch to discuss what is going on and what we can expect to see in the next few years. Hameedi is the Chief Nameplate Engineer at SV

This year, the famous Dakar Rally has moved to South America because of security issues in its previous home in Africa. The race usually showcases the latest in all-road racing technology - diesel vehicles are doing well this year - but there's also the question of what is the real environmental impact of the race. One of Spain's most important environmental groups, Ecologistas en Acción, has asked the Rally to be finished early because of the environmental damage that more than 800 all-t

If a G-Class Mercedes stirs dispassionate responses, there may still be a Mercedes for you. While the Gelandewagen is no joke in its own right, Daimler's own ultimate terra bully would roll right over it. Unimogs have been around for about fifty years, and were originally designed as go-anywhere, do-anything work trucks. The U500 Black Edition Unimog is still akin to a vehicular Chuck Norris, but luxed-up to the point that you'd hate to mar the blingy pedals with muddy boots.
