To show off the precision and predictability of their powertrains, Volvo Trucks turned one of their big rigs into a tow boat for a paraglider. Watch flyer Guillaume Galvani and driver Louise Marriott work in perfect harmony to pull off this dangerous stunt without a hitch.
The new performance variant of Chevy’s mid-size pickup gains 2″ of suspension lift, steel rocker protectors, Multimatic shocks, 17×8 wheels with 31-inch off-road tires, and front and rear locking diffs. Comes with either a 308 hp V6, or a 181 hp diesel with 369 lb-ft. of torque.
Here’s something we never thought we’d see. Luxury and sports car maker Mercedes-Benz is showing off two concept variants of a mid-size pickup. While we’re not sure we’d want to take these trucks off-road and get them really dirty, they sure look pretty. Launching late 2017.

A truck driver in a Sri Lankan fuel depot shows off his impressive maneuvering skills as he manages to turn around his semi and trailer in what seems to be an impossibly small space. Who needs 3-point turns anyway?
