Trucks of SEMA 2018 #MTSEMA18

Trucks of SEMA 2018 #MTSEMA18 While everybody knows SEMA is like a beacon for every car builder wanting to make a name for their self, it should come as no surprise that the same rings true for those of us who are into classic trucks. Builders from across the globe have been thrashing day and night getting their project SEMA-ready in time for the 2018 show. And once the show doors open Tuesday morning, we were there, bright and early, to check out what's been brought out. As always, we were surprised, inspired, and impressed by the number and quality of truck builds at the 2018 SEMA Show.

Freightliner Cascadia Class-8 trucks now come standard with adaptive cruise control that can bring the truck The LiveWire isn't new, but Harley-Davidson came to CES to announce its pricing and the fact that it's available Hyundai used CES 2019 as the backdrop to debut its Elevate walking car concept.

If you've never made it to the annual CES event in Las Vegas, we have a warning for you: It's a freaking madhouse, but we think in a good way (some may take umbrage with this). It's so big that it takes over three separate areas of Vegas, including 11 official venues, some 4,500 exhibitors, and more than 2.5 million square feet of exhibition space. Most of the action, however, is at or near the Las Vegas Convention Center.

We had a chance to dash in and around the central hall, where we waded through the mass of humanity and where most of the mainstream automakers were posted up along with car-related tech—much of it high-end sound system stuff. (Official vehicle debuts included the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA-class and the longer-range Nissan Leaf Plus.) Cool cars were strewn about everywhere and we were able to snap off a few photos of some of the raddest, biggest, and strangest things we saw. Some have been on display already at other shows, but CES is a great opportunity to revisit those ones all over again.

GM Trucks and SUVs Face Probe Over Brake Performance

GM Trucks and SUVs Face Probe Over Brake Performance The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched a probe involving 2.7 million pickup trucks and SUVs from General Motors over concerns that their braking ability may fade over time, increasing the risk of crashes. According to NHTSA, 111 complaints have been filed with the agency about the problem, including nine reports of crashes. In addition, there have been two reports of injuries resulting from two of those crashes. No fatalities have been reported, NHTSA says. The probe may lead to a recall, but for now, it is considered an investigation.

Daimler's Freightliner subsidiary came to CES to show off tech that makes its trucks safer for everyone. Hyundai used CES 2019 as the backdrop to debut its Elevate walking car concept. Toyota came to CES to show off the latest version of its autonomous development vehicle, based on

These cars , trucks , and SUVs are in various stages of development, and range from redesigns, to variants of existing models, to all-new additions to We expect all of these vehicles to arrive during the 2019 calendar year or join the 2019 model year lineup. Of course, nothing is official until it’s on the lot

Schaeffler 4ePerformance concept

The German tech giant uses this car as a test bed for its electric-vehicle technology development, and it's a monster. Based on Audi's RS3 race car, the 4ePerformance features a 220-kW electric motor at each wheel cribbed from Schaeffler's Formula E race car campaigned in 2015-16. It pushes an insane 1,180 horses in all, deploys active torque vectoring, and, when you mash the juice pedal, it can hit 124 mph in just seven seconds. Whoa.

Cub Porsche 911 GT3 RS

A maker of traffic awareness and blind-spot detection systems primarily for mobile homes and campers, the folks at Cub knew a way to get us to wander over—station this Cub-wrapped 991-Series GT3 RS that participated in a recent Fuelrun Midnight Run in its booth. We're betting it has all manner of Cub sensors all over it so it can more easily sense when some midnight runner in an Aventador is approaching.

My GM Syclone Pickup Was a Sleeper Supercar

My GM Syclone Pickup Was a Sleeper Supercar "It’s still a monster off the stoplight." Owner: David Dickman Location: Pensacola, Florida Found on: Autotrader Purchase Price: $10,000 Years owned: 15 I always liked the mini trucks from the mid-eighties, like the Nissan Hardbody. The Syclone was so cool because it had that look, but it was also really fast. I remember when it beat a Ferrari back in ’91, when I was a teenager. They were selling for crazy money, and were out of my realm. About a decade later though, I had some money, and started thinking about the Syclone again. It had always been in the back of my mind.

Kenworth / Toyota Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicle

We've already told you about this bad mother of a big rig, and the cool part about it is that 10 of these are promised to be running around the Port of Los Angeles by 2020. With 300 miles of range per fill-up—which takes about 30 minutes from empty—it can do some real hauling, and it's whisper quiet at idle, which truckers dig while they're sitting around waiting for cargo. While the test truck had a single-speed transmission, the production versions will have a four-speed. Let's see, this or a Mirai?

Infinite Auto Design Corvette

We're suckers for killer Vettes, and while weren't able to get the lowdown on what this wild C7 build by IAD had under the hood, it sure looks like it could stomp fools who might try to mess with it. In the back is a colossal audio setup by AudioControl.

The Consumer Electronics Show happening in Las Vegas right now is where imagination and innovation meet. Talk to the hand takes on new Sony brought the adorable bot out to play at CES . The technology has come a long way since the first generation of Aibo dogs came out in the late 1990s.

FOMM Concept Electric Sports Car

This darling little two-seat EV sports car concept was built by the FOMM Corporation using electronic componentry form the Japanese electronics giant Funai Electric Co., Ltd. Funai is looking to break into the dashboard display market and the car is meant to showcase its tech—Funai also built the inverter for the car. For its part, FOMM is using the scissor-doored concept as a way to gain more visibility for its fledgling electric vehicle called the FOMM 1 it launched in Thailand using similar underlying components. The FOMM sports car, which is about 10 feet long, has four in-wheel motors and is rated at about 26 horsepower in all. While there's no way it would ever be sold here, it's a neat little machine that would be fun to run around Bangkok in.

Addictive Desert Designs Ford Ranger

First shown at last year's SEMA show, Ford recycled this 2019 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCrew FX4 done up by the folks at ADD, because Xbox is very CES. Using the Xbox Design Lab controller program as inspiration, the ADD team added 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires and an ADD roof rack and tire carrier, and then sprayed it in an arctic-style color scheme with Xbox accents. When you're done getting after it on the trails, you can play games one the Xbox One X consoles installed in the back.

CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

Moreover, technically it should still qualify as an utility vehicle, even though there’s no truck bed. We found this image on Reddit, where user Ocardona208 spotted it On the plus side, the body of the car was stretched to hold an extra set of doors ( we assume it’s the same on the other side), which means

Kenwood 1973 Plymouth Barracuda

One of the biggest purveyors of audio systems out extant, Kenwood is using this sweet 'Cuda as a way to demonstrate that vintage muscle cars can be technologically up to date as well. Built by Luxe South Bay, the Plymouth features the latest in Kenwood in-dash entertainment, speaker systems, and Kenwood's drive recorder. It also features Escort radar tech that's integrated with the Kenwood system, upgraded A/C, and a HushMat system designed to help properly absorb all that sound. We'd probably like to hear the car just as much, but the stereo can at least be turned down.

Powerbass Ford F-350

We were just walking along minding our own business when the floor started to shake, and there it was, this colossal 2017 F-350 fitted with Powerbass products trying to bring down the convention-center roof. The owner wasn't around when we stopped by so we weren't able to get any specifics, but one of the Powerbass guys said it can raise or lower between eight- and 20-inch lifts thanks to all of its suspension components. It's hard to put into perspective how big this thing is, but think fire truck and you're in the ballpark.

Nissan Leaf Nismo RC

Back in 2013, Nissan rolled out a race car version of its Leaf billed as the world's first ever electric race car. It didn't exactly leave a lasting impression, but it served as a test bed for Nissan engineers to help it develop the Leaf and possibly position it as a platform for e-racing. The latest version of the Leaf Nismo RC, which made its North American debut at CES, has come a long way, roughly doubling the power and torque of the first car. It features two electric motors positioned front and rear that deliver power to each axle independently. The motors produce roughly 320 horsepower in all and there's an impressive 472 lb-ft of torque on tap from the moment you put your right foot down. It looks the part, too, with a low, wide, and mean stance, plus a livery cribbed from Nissan's Formula E car.
