Hot Rod is a monthly American car magazine devoted to hot rodding, drag racing, and muscle cars—modifying automobiles for performance and appearance.

Hot Rod is the oldest magazine devoted to hot rodding having been published since January 1948. Robert E. Petersen founded the magazine and his Petersen Publishing Company was the original publisher. The first editor of Hot Rod was Wally Parks, who went on to found the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Petersen Publishing was sold to British publisher EMAP in 1998, who then sold the former Petersen magazines to Primedia in 2001. Today it is published by TEN: The Enthusiast Network, which purchased the magazine From Source Interlink in 2014. Source Interlink acquired the magazine along with Primedia's Consumer Magazine division in 2007.

Hot Rod has licensed affiliation with Universal Technical Institute.
