Ohio-based Workhorse unveiled video what appears to be a production-ready version of its W15 electric pickup truck in action. This heavy, 7,200-pound pickup truck has an all-electric range of 80 miles and total range of 300 miles thanks to the on-board range-extending gasoline engine. Production is planned for late 2018.

Shaquille O'Neal is a big guy, and a big guy needs a big pickup truck, so it's no surprise the superstar just had mammoth Ford F-650 custom built for him. The price tag matches the overall footprint of the truck with the final bill coming in at $124,150 thanks to various options and customizations.

The Chevrolet Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, will suspend its public tours on July 16th for 18 months. Why? The official story says it's due to the disruption caused by the facility's new paint shop, but logic says it might have something to do with plant upgrades for the mid-engine C8 Corvette that's waiting in the wings.

You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
