The crazy and pick up trucks
Holden VF SS V Redline
. First up is the Holden VF SS V Redline Ute pictured above. The 350hp V8 machine set the N
Chevrolet El Camino
. While Aussie country boys were relying on Holden Utes to get their tinned lager and sheep from A to B, the yanks had the Chevrolet El Camino. This is the original 1959 El Camino, what must surely be the most stylish pick up truck ever to roll off a production line.
The tail fins and chrome aren t what we expect from a utility vehicle but from the outset the El Camino had a performance pick up glint in its eye. The top engine option with this model was a 5.7 litre V8 producing 315hp. It could get the two tonne truck to 60mph in around seven seconds.
Chevrolet El Camino SS
. As the American motor industry went muscle car crazy in the late 1960s, the El Camino followed suit. This is a 1967 El Camino SS powered by the 6.5 litre big block V8 found in Chevy s Camaro muscle car of the same era. The truck was fitted with sports suspension to help deploy its 325hp performance.
BMW M3 pick up truck
. Germany is not a nation we routinely associate with pick up trucks so when BMW announced this little beauty on 1 April 2011 it didn t fool too many people. Except it did! First rate April fools gag though it was, BMW s M3 pick up was also real.
The 414hp V8 ute was specially commissioned from BMW s M Division and is said to be capable of 186mph. Weighing 50kg less than the equivalent M3 Coupe and with most of that bulk disappearing from over the driven rear wheels, it s hard to imagine the M3 ute being anything less than a monumental handful.
M3 pick ups aren t exactly unprecedented either. BMW has built open backed versions of the E30 M3 and there s a E46 M3 truck doing its tyre smoking rounds too.
Vauxhall VXR Maloo
. Why should the Australians have all the fun? Surely there are thousands of British workers who d quite like to drive to work every day in a 6.2 litre V8 pick up truck, aren t there? Vauxhall thought there were and promptly got on the phone to Holden to arrange a subtle rebadging of the HSV (Holden Special Vehicles) Maloo.
Rebadged as a Vauxhall VXR Maloo, the HSV super ute exploded on to the British commercial vehicle scene and instantly made our domestic market pick ups look rather inadequate. This E3 version of the Maloo has 425hp and can power to 60mph (100kph) in 4.9s. Unfortunately, 21mpg fuel consumption and a
Dodge Ram SRT 10
. The US likes to do everything a little larger than everyone else and its pick up trucks are no exception. This is the Dodge Ram SRT 10, a giant pick up equipped with the 8.3 litre V10 engine from the Dodge Viper supercar. The Ram SRT 10 was built in limited numbers from 2004 to 2006 and a few of the 510hp machines even made it to the UK through official channels. At over 2m wide and with the four seater version weighing 2.548kg the Ram can still sprint to 60mph (100kph) in 5.2s and get close to 150mph (241kph).
Mitsubishi L200 Raging Bull
. Mitsubishi s L200 was one of the models that benefited most from the UK s double cab pick up boom of the late 90s and early noughties. Canny tradespeople realised the commercial vehicle tax breaks their vans qualified for also applied to five seater pick ups that could double as family cars. Mitsubishi was one of the first to capitalise with a procession of high spec, leather lined special edition versions of its L200, each with a more outlandishly macho title than the last.
Customers who were that way inclined could cruise about the place in an L200 Trojan, Warrior, Barbarian or possibly the silliest of the lot, the Mitsubishi L200 Raging Bull. Would you think twice before honking your horn at a plasterer with
Ford Ranchero GT
. It was the success of the Ford Ranchero pick up that prompted General Motors to dream up the Chevy El Camino. The original 1957 Ranchero could more than match the El Camino in the tailfins and chrome stakes but this is the 1969 fourth generation truck in racy GT guise.
Ford SVT F 150 Lightning
. This is Ford s take on the ultimate performance pick up. The Ford Special Vehicle Team first produced a Lightning version of the F 150 truck in 1993 but this is the second generation version that launched in 1999 with a 360hp 5.4 litre V8 under the hood. Production continued until 2004 and over 28,000 units were sold.
Dodge Rampage 1982
. The Dodge Rampage was launched in 1982 to give the Chevy El Camino of the day a run for its money. With 2.2 litre, four cylinder power it didn t quite have the legs to trouble the performance pick up elite, but its compact size and front wheel drive layout made it a more manageable alternative. The US car based pick up market was declining by this stage and, with proper off road capable models taking over, not even the testosterone charged name could make the Rampage a commercial success.
Dodge Rampage 2006
. In 2006 the Dodge Rampage nameplate was back, this time on this jaw dropping concept pick up at the Chicago Motor Show. With a 5.7 litre Hemi V8, sliding rear doors and an integrated ramp for loading your dirt bikes into the back, it was an over the top outdoor activity vehicle for an age before the global recession forced everyone into Toyota Prius hybrids.
Smart For Us concept
. This is the pick up truck of the future as glimpsed through the eyes of today s car designers and predictably, there s not a sonorous V8 in sight. The Smart For Us concept debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in 2012 boasting a 73hp electric motor and a top speed of 75mph (121kph). There are even a couple of rechargeable e bikes in the back for when the For Us runs out of batteries.
. Here is more proof that not everything in the macho world of the pick up truck has to be V8 powered and dripping with chrome. The quaint Chevrolet Montana is a pick up truck designed for Latin America and other
. The British market is no stranger to budget car based pick up trucks, and between 2003 and 2007 we had the Proton Jumbuck to get our teeth into.
By working vehicle standards build quality was not a strong point of this 1.5 litre petrol engined truck, with its fixtures and fittings apparently made from the same plastic they package chicken kievs in, but the handling was tuned by Lotus. In fact, if you mention the Jumbuck to the famous British sports car brand s chassis engineers they ll show their pride in the project by avoiding eye contact, shuffling their feet and changing the subject.
Skoda Felicia Fun
. Quite possibly the yellowest vehicle of all time, the Skoda Felicia Fun was a 1999 special edition version of Czech manufacturer s Felicia pick up truck, which in turn was also sold as a Volkswagen Caddy pick up. What was so much fun about the Felica Fun, you ask? Well, it had extra seats that folded out into the load bay so rear seat passengers could take the air and, as we ve said, it was very, very yellow.
. The Strada is Fiat s supermini sized utility vehicle based on the brand s Pailo world car. It has been through various generations and facelifts since its launch in 1996 and this festival of off road styling cues is the latest, 2009 version. Fiat has pulled out all the stops to give its diminutive pick up a tough look but although some models get a locking differential, all are front wheel drive and most use Fiat s 1.3 litre Multijet diesel engine.
. The Australians have their Holden Utes, the Americans have their Ford F 150s and the Italians have this, the Piaggio Ape. Visit the outlying areas of Italy and it sometimes seems the nation s entire rural economy is propped up by these faintly ridiculous, scooter based, three wheeled pick ups.
Piaggio s off the shelf range incorporates pick ups, vans, tipper trucks and even a model equipped with mobile espresso machine. There s a four wheeled version too, called the Ape Poker.
Chevrolet SuperUte by LupiniPower
. Another relative in the General Motors performance pick up family that gave us the Holden SS Ute and the Vauxhall VXR Maloo, this is the Chevrolet SuperUte by the South African tuning firm LupiniPower. With a 535hp 6.0 litre V8 similar to that used in the Corvette ZR1, it s one serious pick up. The 0 60mph (100kph) sprint is covered in 4.8s and it will pass 150mph (241kph) in 22.9s before topping out at 175mph (281kph).
Ford F 150 SVT Raptor
. The Ford F series pick up was launched in 1948 and is currently in its 12th generation. The F 150 version was the bestselling vehicle in the US for 17 years straight and this is the most hardcore F 150 of them all, the SVT Raptor, launched in 2010.
Designed specifically for hard off road use, the F 150 SVT Raptor has upgraded body protection and heavy duty shocks offering a massive 11.2
Dodge Ram Rumble Bee
. By this stage you re probably detecting a close association between the worlds of the pick up truck and the muscle car. Well, here s another link in the chain
Chevrolet Silverado Nascar race truck
. Some of the more cumbersome North American market pick up trucks would rank among the last things you d ever want to take anywhere near a racetrack but race them people do. The Nascar Camping World Truck Series puts heavily modified trucks like this streamlined Chevy Silverado head to head on the most famous oval circuits in the US.
The Truck series kicked off with demonstration races at the 1994 Daytona 500 and has continued ever since. The race prepared machines produce up to 700hp from their 5.8 litre pushrod V8 engines.
. We couldn t take a journey through the wonderful world of the pick up truck without touching on the phenomenon that is the monster truck. The lineage of these oversize modified pick ups can be traced back to the 1960s where
Giant Dodge Power Wagon

. The British contribution to the pick up truck hall of fame isn t huge but when the custom alloy wheels firm 100+ International needed a promotional vehicle to raise the profile of its products in the mid 1980s, they did choose the very British Jaguar XJS. Then they turned it into a six wheeled pick up called the Interstate Six.
Chevrolet El Camino modified
. The Chevy El Camino s cult status makes it a prime candidate for modification and El Camino hot rods are by no means the preserve of the US. This one was snapped at the NSRA Nostalgia Nationals classic car event in Stratford upon Avon.
Chevrolet Silverado Tonka truck
. Here s a Chevrolet Silverado in a Tonka toy disguise to bring those childhood memories flooding back
. Jeep is perhaps the greatest American off road car brand but we don t tend to associate it with pick ups. In fact, it s been building open backed utility vehicles for decades.
The Gladiator nameplate was originally used in the 1960s and early 70s before being dropped. This is Jeep s 2005 concept car take on what a reborn Jeep Gladiator might look like (a Jeep Wrangler with a load bay stuck on the back).
Mini pick up
. The Mini s compact dimensions didn t make it an obvious choice for pick up truck conversion but convert it they did. The Mini Pick up was built on the longer Mini Van platform, but it was still only 3.4m long and weighed only 680kg. The tiny truck was launched in 1961 and produced until 1982, but was renamed the Mini 95 in 1978. A total of just over 58,000 were sold, presumably to owners who like making two trips.
USAF A 10 Monster truck
. The US air force isn t known for its softly, softly approach so this gloriously over the top A 10 Monster Truck shouldn t come as too much of a surprise. The vehicle was created for an air force recruitment drive and is intended to resemble the A10 C Thunderbolt Warthog combat jet that s seen in the background.
Features include fake missiles, a front mounted machine gun and jet engines bolted on to the sides. On launching the vehicle in 2012, spokesperson Captain Heath Allen revealed that audio from the A 10 s 30mm Gatling gun will be made available in a cell phone ring tone as well. Can you think of a worse ringtone? Answers on a postcard
Morris Minor pick up
. The Morris Minor was another British car to get the pick up treatment, but the original version didn t look quite like this yellow peril.
Toyota Polar Hilux
. Much to the dismay of every environmentalist worth his or her salt, the BBC Top Gear team drove this Toyota Hilux pick up to the magnetic North Pole in 2007, while sipping gin and tonics and generally messing about in the time honoured fashion.
The Hilux was specially modified for the job by Reykjavik s Arctic Trucks and features 38
. This modified Ford F 100 pick up was created by none other than Gene Simmons from rock band KISS with the help of his wife Shannon Tweed. It s a 1956 Ford F 100 with styling cues that mirror those of classic Shelby Mustang muscle cars. Power comes from Ford s supercharged 5.4 litre V8 which sends 550hp to the rear wheels. It may be a bit of a handful.
