The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven
The 2022 Rivian R1T is the first mass-produced electric truck to hit the U.S. market, but that’s hardly the most interesting thing about it. Its electric powertrain notwithstanding, the R1T is unlike any pickup we’ve ever driven—part truck, part sport sedan, and 100 percent amazing. It’s been speculated that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first drive in a pre-production Rivian R1T, both on-road and off-, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers.
After Acura unveiled the new during Monterey Car Week on Thursday, the company had one more big bit of news to share. By way of an elaborate drone show, Acura confirmed the Integra -- yes, the Integra -- will return in 2022.
No, I'm not pranking you. The Integra is coming back, and I'm stoked. The drones first showed the original 1986 Integra's shape -- complete with pop-up headlights -- before morphing into the new model's sleek silhouette. The name Integra was prominently displayed with flashing and moving lights, before the number "2022" also lit up in the sky. And then the crowd cheered, obviously.
New Ranger Dropping: Ford Teases Redesigned Truck in Australia
A new generation of Ford Ranger is on the horizon and the Blue Oval’s Australian arm is putting out the teasers to prove it. Wait, Australia? What about us Yanks? Well, there’s not a peep coming from Ford’s North American operations regarding this redesigned Ranger at the moment, but if the current midsize truck that Ford sells in the United States is anything to go by, then this new Australian-market model might provide a preview of what's to come our way.

No one at Acura's NSX Type S reveal was privy to the Integra announcement, which made it even more impressive. There have been rumors for years about the Integra's return, but they never seemed to gain traction. It's a particularly remarkable product announcement in a time when traditional new passenger cars -- especially sporty coupes -- are thin on the ground as more and more automakers flood the market with SUVs. However, as Acura's is ending production in 2022 with the , it makes sense that Honda's upscale division would want a new iconic nameplate to carry its performance car torch.
After the drone presentation was over Acura presented a teaser image on screen, showing the new Integra's headlight. The LED light looks very similar to that of the TLX , and the name Integra is embossed in the bodywork underneath the light. You can also see a complex grille and a hood with aggressive surfacing. My best guess is that the new Integra will share a platform with the 2022 Honda Civic , taking the form of a two-door coupe with a turbocharged engine and (hopefully) a manual transmission. Expect Acura to get a version of the Integra that shares its powertrain with the next-gen Civic Type R , too, under the guise of an Integra Type S. A related teaser tweet from the automaker featuring a revving engine leaves no doubt that this model will feature internal combustion.

During the announcement, Acura's vice president and brand officer Jon Ikeda said the 2022 Integra will retain the "fun-to-drive spirit and DNA" of the original Integra, and given Honda's recent success with performance cars, I'm optimistic that the reborn Integra will live up to the name.
2022 GMC Hummer EV Prototype First Drive: Truck Yeah!
We got a first taste of what it is like behind the wheel of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup truck and it is a mouthful. There is a lot of Hummer to move (about 9,000 pounds, in fact). Factor in the trio of electric motors, the 24-module battery pack, and all the bells and whistles included in the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 launch model, and this is a massive truck. © Manufacturer,Povi Pullinen 2022 GMC Hummer EV Prototype First Drive: Truck Yeah!-featured General Motors relishes it. The Hummer has been reinvented as a battery electric vehicle under the GMC brand, but it remains true to its roots as a huge, off-road-capable beast.
