For about a year now, General Motors has been boasting the advantages of its steel-bodied Chevrolet Silverado over the aluminum-bodied Ford F-150 in TV ads. Now a new set of “aluminum versus steel” ads is here, purporting to show the F-150's bed cracking under pressure. GM swears the ads aren’t an attack on aluminum…
The Chevy Silverado “Bone Collector” sounds intense but actually seems remarkably practical. I dig what a few tubes of steel does for the look and I wish GM would offer this bed drawer system as a factory option, like, yesterday.
In 2015 luxury pickup trucks are mainstays of the American auto industry. Ford, Ram, and Chevrolet each put their own spin on “capable and comfortable” and frankly they’re all pretty impressive. The GMC Sierra Denali isn’t the fanciest of the field, but it is the original. And it’s still the best.
The Silverado is a solid working-man’s truck. What do you need to know before you buy a Chevrolet Silverado? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
So after a whole ad campaign crapping on Ford’s aluminum F-150, sources say GM’s planning “significant model changes” on the Chevy Silverado, Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade for 2018 including more use of aluminum and lightweight steel. You can’t make this stuff up.
Any guesses on the top reason why people buy GMC trucks? According to GM it’s “styling,” so they sure hope you dig the new look of the 2016 GMC Sierra. It’s a mild update but don’t worry, they did manage to get more angles in that chiseled face.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade doesn't have an EXT pickup truck variant, but the hoonigans over at Monster Energy have gone ahead and slapped the Daddy Caddy's face on a full-size Chevy pickup to make their own. It's kind of awesome.
I can't make any more sense of this speculate than Whitesnake lyrics, but it sure looks like these boys were in it to win it at Daisy Duke's Truck Show. I ain't wasting no more time: watch some trucks try to tear each other apart.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150. Here's what happened: Ford flew me to Dallas, or possibly San Antonio, for an evening of brisket, and pie, and musicians wearing blue jeans. At some point, there was also a pickup truck.
Hennessey's HPE650 supercharger kit for GM's 6.2 V8 claims 665 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 658 lb-ft @ 4,200 rpm at the crank. Dyno testing says that translates to 545 horsepower at the wheels, but the real story is the boosted engine's glorious wail.
Put the burnt orange flags away. Rip off the bumper stickers. You won't need those grille-mounted horns anymore. This is the Texas Longhorns tailgating vehicle that you need in your life.
Apparently General Motors is hustling to get their next Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks out the door a little closer to the 2015 Ford F-150 launch, having just moved production "nine months sooner" to Fall 2018 with their new SUVs to follow in 2019.
Fire departments and HAZMAT teams responded to a "chemical explosion involving chlorine" just before 2:00 this afternoon at GM's Marion Stamping Plant. One GM worker died and several others were injured in the incident.
Al and Betty Perry were driving their late-model Chevrolet Silverado down Highway 14 in Alberta when a lightning strike turned their truck into a f*king rolling fireball. Airbags deployed, cabin filled with smoke, and both occupants thought they were doomed until a passing cop busted in and saved their butts.
With May 2014 sales numbers freshly published, Ford F-Series lead the month with 68,520, GM nipped at their heels with 64,974 total full-sized truck sales and Ram was down at 37,131.
On Friday morning Boston Fire responded to a crane collapse that put the business end of a boom truck right on third base at the Puopolo Park baseball diamond in the North End neighborhood.
Ram raised a lot of eyebrows when their sales passed the Chevrolet Silverado by 285 trucks last month, but the Bowtie has regained a comfortable lead selling over 6,000 more Silverados than Chrysler sold Rams in April 2014.
