Chevy Aims for 30 mpg with Diesel Colorado

Chevy Aims for 30 mpg with Diesel Colorado
One of the main reasons why mid-size trucks all but disappeared for a while is that they overlap so much with full-size trucks in price and capability. There was also little or no fuel economy difference between mid-size and full-size trucks and for those reason most people just bought full-size.

Jet Truck Test Firing Causes Emergency False Alarm
One of the coolest things I ever saw as a kid happened at an air show my parents took me to. It was cool enough to see the Blue Angels flying overhead, but at intermission, the show had a big semi truck that was powered by jet engines.

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel Pricing Announced
It’s shocking to me each time I look at the prices of trucks today. I remember back in the day when if you didn’t have much money and needed cheap transportation you bought a pickup truck.

A Monster Truck for the Upper Crust

A Monster Truck for the Upper Crust
If a monster truck just ain’t monstrous for enough for you, then I have an incredible monstrosity you may want to consider. But it’s going to cost you. Built by the bad boys from Big Toyz Racing, it’s nicknamed the Sin City Hustler and it’s being called “the world’s first million dollar luxury monstertruck.” Yup – a million bucks.

Shelby Baja 700 Ford F-150 Raptor

Shelby Baja 700 Ford F-150 Raptor
As if you couldn’t already get your 2x4s home faster than everyone else, Shelby American took the current-gen (2011-2014) Raptor and bumped up its F-150 SVT’s power like Vladimir Putin rides horses, with utter abandon. From the factory, the Ford F-150 Raptor made enough power to soil your dungarees with its four-wheel driven 411 hp, and the Shelby Version made even more at 575.

2016 Ford F-150 Gets Pro Trailer Backup System
I believe am a very good driver. I have spent years driving cars on the racetrack and teaching others to do so. Despite all my track day prowess, I can’t back my way out of a paper bag with a trailer behind a truck.

Stadium Truck Indestructible, Driver’s Underwear Not So Much
I have been on the track with driving students and behind the wheel on more than a few occasions when the car has spun out. It’s not so bad when I am behind the wheel, because I know what I am going to do.

2016 Ford F-150 to Offer CNG/Propane V8 Option
Ford has previously offered a version of the popular F-150 that could be powered by compressed natural gas or propane. The catch was that the truck was only offered with a V6 at the time. Ford has now announced that with the 2016 F-150, it will offer a package from the factory that prepares the 5.0L V8 engine to run on either CNG or propane.

Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 105 Pickup

Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 105 Pickup
The latest member of Kahn Design’s Flying Huntsman Land Rover Defender line is certainly an odd one. As is the series’ trademark, the 105 Pick Up has a 15″ longer wheelbase and 16″ longer bonnet than a stock Defender, but the snout is even more pronounced here because it’s visibly larger than the truck bed.

Brabus Startech: The Range Rover Avalanche

Brabus Startech: The Range Rover Avalanche
I’m not normally a fan of car/truck or truck/SUV mashups. I was never an El Camino fan and I don’t really like the Chevy Avalanche. Brabus has taken a Range Rover and turned it into something awesome, and I really like it.
