Interesting views of trucks in tomorrow's world.

Toyota and Ford will soon partner up in developing a hybrid powertrain - to be used in trucks too!

Dodge wants you to build your truck your way - at a cost tag of $49,554.

Even GM is weighing into the fray-

What we leave behind are our words and our deeds. Nothing else really matters.

That GMC would be a beast off road. I mean, like huge, excessively. It'll have the power with that diesel/allison combo, but come on! If that was in the 1500 class, I think it would have been better.

Psssh. Ram Runner. Need I say more.

Toyota and Ford teaming up for a hybrid RWD powerplant/drive train combo. Will be interesting to see what they come up with and what applications they use it in.

Toyo's offroader... meh.

Who started this whole street legal off roader baja mayhem? Ford.

I'll bet that yota will be a beast offroad right beside the raptor.
The ramrunner is a legit offroad machine, uses the same kinda stuff as a raptor.
The gmc concept would be terrible, it looks like it would be more of a glorified work truck, for people working outside all the time. Same goes for the ram powerwagon.
