Who doesn’t love a good pickup? FCA is banking on the vehicle's popularity and spending $1.5 billion on improving plants for Ram production. With the demise of the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart, the company is focusing on trucks.
Pricing for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has been released: The off-road-capable pickup will start at $49,520 for the SuperCab and $52,505 for the SuperCrew. For the money, the Raptor will be powered by a twin-turbo V6 pumping out 450 horsepower.
The Bentley Bentayga may be pricier, but few would argue that the Land Rover Range Rover has been dethroned as the consummate luxury SUV. Still, JLR is feeling encroached upon. According to reports, the next Range Rover will be designed to compete with the Bentley Bentayga.
While it's nice to be connected, running with a phone is a terrible experience: lots of swinging and the bashing of the device into your poor thigh, already stressed from the exercise. Fortunately, Roka’s Men’s Elite 5” Run Short has a nice cellphone pocket in the back to keep everything in order.
End frayed chargers forever with this awesome steel lightning cable from Fuse Chicken. Resilient to the brutal wear and tear of an active lad, these cables will ensure your phone keeps chugging along.
Today’s beer pick takes us to Garrison City Beerworks in Dover, New Hampshire. This 3 barrel nanobrewery focuses their attention on East Coast IPAs and hoppy, unfiltered brews. If you want to enjoy a nice 4oz taste of these special beers, we recommend you swing by the taproom and have an (increasingly loose) chat with the brewer.
Frye boots absolutely rock. Made of beautifully worn leather, the Frye Logan Work Zip Tote will not only last your entire professional career, but might even start conversations at each interview.
