electric pickups

Electric pickups may well be “The Next Big Thing in Trucks.” Due in the next couple of years are Tesla’s electric Cybertruck (top left), revealed to great fanfare late last year, and the Rivian R1T (top right), already boasting connections with Amazon and Ford Motor Co. Other, lesser-known “newbies” include (bottom row, left to right) the Atlis XT, Nikola Badger, and Lordstown Endurance. Ford and GM are due to add their own electric pickups to the fray.

Trucks are big business – and becoming bigger all the time. We recently attended the inaugural National Truck Summit that preceded the Twin Cities Auto Show in Minneapolis to hear about truck trends and what’s in store for the future.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander

Consumer Guide Automotive

Toyota’s Highlander has long been a top-seller in the hot midsize-crossover class, at least in part due to the host of accolades it has received (though wearing a Toyota badge doesn’t hurt, either.) It gets a redesign for 2020 that brings an additional 2.4 inches of wheelbase and overall length, a host of new tech features, and a decidedly more miserly Hybrid variant.
