    Pickup trucks

    I want to buy those pickup-trucks that is so popular in USA and Australia. But i find that most AD do not carry pick-up trucks, or had very limited selection. Take for example, Toyota only have the single cab Toyota Hilux and manual drive. I am talking about those double cab pickup-truck. In some countries, i saw some drivers adding a shell over the truck bed, effectively converting it to a cheap SUV. Do you know where i can find a bigger selection? through parallel importers?

    2017 Mercedes Benz X Class

    Bro Mustank, specially for you. Since it is from MB, sure got Diesel option. Daimler's Mercedes-Benz arm continues the development work of their first mid-sized pickup truck and our spies were there to catch them in the act. Just like the Renault Alaskan, Mercedes’ new pickup truck is based on the underpinnings of Nissan’s NP300 Navara and will reportedly enter the market under the GLT moniker, starting from 2017. The car you see in the photos is a test mule still carrying a lot of the Nissan’s body panels but we can clearly notice the wider front and rear wheel arches. Unlike other re-badged examples we’ve seen, the GLT is being developed and designed solely from Daimler to meet the specific needs of its customer base in Europe, Australia, South Africa and Latin America. The company gave us a good idea of how the final car will look like by releasing a teaser sketch image last year, along with the promise of high levels of utility combined with “the comfort, safety, and design of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car”. Mercedes still considers offering their new pickup in the US and if they do, the GLT will probably be made at Nissan’s factory in Mexico to avoid tarrifs. The company is also going to build it in Renault’s Argentinian facilities and at the Nissan plant in Spain for the regional markets respectively. Expect a range of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with entry-level models getting a six-speed manual and the rest a seven-speed automatic gearbox, with power sent to all four wheels permanently.
  3. Singapore actually has the VW Amarok sold here, by PI. @Mustang http://www.sgcarmart.com/new_cars/newcars_overview.php?CarCode=12221 VolkswagenAmarokTrendline 3.0 TDI V6 8-Speed (A) Engine Engine capacity 2,970 cc Engine type V6 Compression ratio unknown Bore x Stroke unknown Fuel type Diesel (Euro VI) Performance Power 152kW (204 bhp) Torque 500 Nm Acceleration 9.1s (0-100 km/h) Top speed 188 km/h Fuel consumption 12.3 km/L CO2 emission 212 g/km (Manufacturer specs) Misc technical data Transmission 8-Speed (A) Drive type All-wheel drive Measurements Vehicle type Commercial Dimensions (L x W x H) (5254 x 1954 x 1834) mm Wheelbase 3,097 mm Min turning radius 6,475 mm Kerb weight 2,164 kg Fuel tank capacity 80 L Boot/Cargo Capacity unknown Brakes Brakes (Front) Disc Brakes (Rear) Disc Suspension Suspension (Front) Spring Suspension (Rear) Spring Volkswagen Amarok reviewhttps://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/volkswagen/amarok The Volkswagen Amarok is the company's first purpose-built pick-up and is a direct competitor for the Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara NP300 and Ford Ranger, and provides an additional yardstick for the newcomers to the pick-up segment to measure up to - namelythe Fiat Fullback and the impending Mercedes-Benz X-Class. To keep up with its recently revamped rivals, Volkswagen has given the Amarok a light facelift for 2017. In doing so has removed the 2.0-litre oilburners and is available with a choice of two turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel units, tuned for 201bhp and 368lb ft or 221bhp and 405lb ft. The Amarok did have the smallest engine in its class, but now its engine is the second largest behind the five-cylinder, 3.2-litre brute found in the Ranger. The model we tested had plenty of torque across the rev range, with 405lb ft available from 1400rpm. This does make the Amarok more muscularsomething the original 2.0-litre unit could produce. Whereas previously overtaking manoeuvres required plenty of pre-planning, the V6 diesel combats that with a healthy dose of torque available early on and low down. On the road, the Amarok is demonstrates excellent driving manners, with solid, predictable car-like handling. Where Volkswagen's achievement is much more impressive is the on-road refinement. The Amarok does not ride over broken surfaces withthe sophistication of the Freelander, but the ride is exceptionally good for a vehicle with a payload of 1110kg. The steering is well weighted, though devoid of much feel, but provides enough feedback on what's going on beneath the tyres to allow fluent, quick progress. The combination of a solid, leaf-spring rear axle, a low-range gearbox, mechanical locks on the centre and rear diffs and traction control means that most extreme off-road situations require little more than pressing the accelerator and adjusting the wheel so that it goes in the correct direction. Volkswagen's designers have managed to apply the marque's trademark front end to the big pick-up, which is impressive given how different the Amarok in size, shape and purpose from its passenger car cousins. The interior moves the class to the next level. Despite the low spec levels compared to Volkwagen's road cars, the build quality is exceptionally good, with tough but well-textured surfaces and an excellent driving position. Car drivers would notice the unusual height of the seats and driving position, but otherwise everything falls under the fingers in exactly the way that it would in, say, a Golf. As for standard equipment, the Amarok has three to choose from - Trendline, Highline and the first edition Aventura models. The entry-level model equips the Amarok with electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, front foglights, manually adjustable front seats, air conditioning, electric windows, and automatic post collision braking system, alongside Volkswagen's Composition infotainment system, complete with 6.3in touchscreen display, DAB radio, smartphone integration and USB connectivity. Upgrade to Highline and you'll find luxuries such as parking sensors, a reversing camera, bi-xenon headlights, 18in alloy wheels, leather upholstery and heated front seats as standard, whilethe limited edition Aventura models get an unique metallic blue paint job, 19in alloy wheels and sat nav. If the proof of the pudding is in the eating, then the proof of a pick-up is in driving it for 100,000 miles over bumpy roads. Given Volkswagen's reputation for build quality and reliability it's safe to say that Toyota, Nissan, Ford and Mitsubishi should be concerned, as should be the future incumbents to this sector.
  4. https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/mitsubishi-triton-2019-revealed-71824 Mitsubishi has ripped the covers from its facelifted Triton that is set to hit Australian showrooms in January 2019, with the updated pick-up ushering in a fresh front-end design, more active safety features and a new six-speed automatic transmission. The biggest change for the updated Triton is the new ‘Dynamic Shield’ front fascia that incorporates higher-set slimline headlights, a revised lower bumper, more sculpted bonnet and an updated grille with chrome flourishes. This design theme is found on most of Mitsubishi’s SUV models including the ASX, Eclipse Cross, Outlander and the related Pajero Sport. Mitsubishi says the front end “uses a horizontal/vertical motif and beefier chrome parts to give a sense of powerful rigidity in a design that echoes the ‘Engineered beyond Tough’ development concept.” Australian pricing and specification are still yet to be announced, but higher-spec variants gain bi-functional LED headlights, and the foglights have also been raised to protect the lighting elements from stone chips and high-water crossings, according to Mitsubishi. The rear bumper has been streamlined and is now integrated into the bodywork, and the bed sides and tail-lights have been restyled. There are fewer changes inside the new Triton, but it gains silver detailing and soft-touch materials. It also features a double-stitched finish on the front seat armrest, knee pads, console lid, brake lever and shifter. The door trims are now slightly thicker than the outgoing model. Second-row occupants now have access to a USB outlet and a roof-mounted air vent with four levels of airflow adjustment, while trays have been fitted around the centre console for smartphone or tablet stowage. Mitsubishi has increased the Thai-built Triton’s rigidity and added more sound-proofing and noise- and vibration-absorbing materials to improve cabin noise levels. The Japanese carmaker has increased available safety systems, which includes the addition of a camera- and radar-based front collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with lane-change assist, rear cross-traffic alert and ‘Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation’ that helps prevent unintended motion. A surround-view 'Multi-Around Monitor' will be offered as an option, at least in some international markets, while front and rear parking sensors will be offered and a reversing camera will carry over. Mitsubishi’s on-the-fly 'Easy Select' 4WD system with four modes including rear-drive, four-wheel-drive, and high- and low-range 4WD will also carry over from the previous model. When switched to all-wheel drive mode, the Triton now features an 'Off-Road Mode' that allows specific terrain selection between Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand and Rock settings for improved control. The Triton is now fitted with hill descent control which operates at speeds up to 20km/h in 4WD modes. The suspension system mostly carries over, namely a double wishbone front and leaf spring rear set-up, but Mitsubishi says it has tweaked it to improve comfort, largely due to to bigger rear dampers. On overseas models fitted with 18-inch wheels, the brakes have been upgraded and now use larger ventilated discs with two-piston calipers. Powered by the carryover 2.4-litre turbo-diesel engine, the new Triton produces its peak 133kW of power at 3500rpm and maximum 430Nm of torque from 2500rpm. A 2.4-litrepetrol engine is still available. While the facelifted Triton is offered with a carryover six-speed manual and five-speed automatic transmission, a new six-ratio self-shifter with a Sport mode will also be offered in the new version. The new Triton is offered in four new colours – 'White Diamond', 'Graphite Grey', 'Passion Orange' and red – while white, 'Silver Metallic', 'Black Mica', 'Blue Metallic' and 'Brown Metallic' carry over.

    Jeep have pickup now!

    2020 Jeep Gladiator leaks online ahead of LA Auto Show debut https://www.autoblog.com/2018/11/14/jeep-gladiator-pickup-truck-leak/ This is it! At least, we think this is it. According to a posting on JeepGladiatorForum.com, these images and texts for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck were briefly posted on Fiat Chrysler's media site, and at least one enterprising individual managed to snag them before they were taken down. And, while everything is pretty much as we (and everyone else) have been expecting, it's also extremely big news and confirms some important information. According to the leaked document, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that can be mated to an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. We'd wager it'll offer the same 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque as in other Wranglerapplications. Bigger news is the optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. If it's in the same state of tune as it is in the Grand Cherokee, the Gladiator's dieselwill spin out 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The Gladiator's spec sheet lists its max tow rating at 7,600 pounds (probably with the diesel engine) and payload at 1,600 pounds. Two four-wheel-drive systems will be available, and beefy Dana 44 axles joined with electronic lockers front and rear should make the Gladiator a well-sorted off-road machine. Other noteworthy bits include an electronic swaybar disconnect and 33-inch tires. One thing that the Jeep Gladiator will offer that no competitor can match is its open-air capability. We'd expect a soft top to be standard, and this document says two hard tops will also be offered. A five-foot bed offers practicality, and a fold-down windshield ought to please the purists. As for style, well, it's clearly a Jeep. And we mean that in a good way. See for yourself in the image gallery up above.

  10. I was browsing thru sgcarmart and saw this ad on a used Hilux double cab pickup. The dep is whopping 10K/yr which is higher than big sedan like Camry and Accord.

Ridiculous pricing. http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.ph...238&DL=2047

    Pickup Taxi

    Wah, my wife saw this when she came home from work. Is this really a taxi???
  21. Today saw another one of those light lorries with added shelter height more than twice the height of its width. From the looks of it, its CG is well out of place and I suspect when turning corners, its more likely to tilt over. Very dangerous looking Doesn't TP or LTA forbid modification to add height to existing roof/shelter of lorries/pickup anymore? or is there a change of rules? just like allowing bangla to sit behind speeding lorries? Have also seen a number of tipper truck that fills its rear with some furnitures or waste metals beyond its rim and top, especially around Tuas area. Even saw one last week with furnitures stacked such that the height of rubbish is twice its normal height. Reminds me of streets of india where everything goes. It feels very intimidating to follow behind them, in case one of the metals falls. Cannot imagine what will happen if this happens. Has LTA or TP took note of these "new" vehicles on the road lately? Are these modification now allow
  22. I travelled along PIE daily and during the evening peak hour (turning right from Pioneer Road North to joint PIE) towards Changi Airport direction, I notice that a lot of MY vans & pickups travel at the extreme right (lane 1) at the speed more than 90 km/h. My vehicle (on lane 2) had clocked 95 km/h and they overtook me from right. Don't they have to confine to our legal speed limit for van, pickups, buses and lorries (70km/h on highway) and out of bound on the extreme right lane? I have also notice that they do not carry our speed limit decal at the rear and our tour buses or passenger vans going to MY had to carry their speed limit decal.
