From all new Ford F-150 to RAM’s Rebel TRX to electric trucks and other new entries, the next year will introduce a slew of new trucks to the U.S. And we at TFLtruck can’t wait to drive them. In this video of our podcast show “Talkin’ Trucks” Stephen, Andre and Roman take us through their most eagerly anticipated eight trucks (and two bonus trucks) coming soon—and all the rumors surrounding them.
TFL’s truck-meter hype ranking
8. 2021 Ford F-150 – Rumor says: an EV variant, several EcoBoost options, hybrid option, and new interior.
7. 2022 GMC Hummer EV – Outside of looks, not your old Hummer by a long shot.
6. 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz – The Honda Ridgeline will have a worthy competitor in the front-wheel-drive crossover-based truck market.
5. 2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel – Same 3.0 diesel found in the current Wrangler. Will it tow more though?
4. 2022 Ford Maverick – Crossover-based mini-truck that’s less than a Ford Ranger, but more than … something.
3. 2021 Nissan Frontier – We’ve tested the engine and transmission but have no idea about its design.
2. 2022 Toyota Tundra – Rumors of a twin-turbo V6 and 9-speed automatic.
1. 2021 Ram Rebel TRX – FCA’s Hellcat V8 monster engine and a suspension to match is so, so close to being revealed.
Bonus: Rivian R1T – There was a ton of momentum for this EV truck and now there’s not.
Bonus: Tesla Cybertruck – Inching ever closer to reality.
