The Ford F-150 Black Ops Edition Isn’t as Cringe-Worthy as It Looks

Not every special-edition truck is valuable. Many offer little beyond cosmetic upgrades. For example, you can option a normal F-150 to match up with the Harley-Davidson edition and save almost $20,000. But monetary value isn’t always what makes special editions appealing.

Operation Blazing Speed: Chevrolet Blazer Supercharged by Lingenfelter

While relatively affordable, the Chevrolet Blazer hasn’t had the smoothest debut. In addition to the UAW issues, the base engine has been criticized for its lack of power.

You Don’t Have to Wait for an Electric F-150 Anymore

Ford’s all-electric F-150 is coming…eventually. Although the automaker is working with Rivian, who is making its own electric pickup, the electric F-Series might not arrive until 2021.

Owners keep their …
