The 2015 GMC Sierra Denali Is Like A Stern Father You Fear And Respect

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.

I Hope This Chevy Trail Boss Means Roll Bars Are Making A Comeback

I initially dismissed the the 2015 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss press release because no ZR2, no care. Then I saw that roll bar! It’s definitely not a safety device but it is the first OEM pickup truck roll bar that’s come out since, I think, I’ve been old enough to read. Come on automakers, bring these babies back! » 8/21/15 1:54pm 8/21/15 1:54pm

What It's Like To Drive A Life-Size Tonka Truck

Last week for part one of our season finale we took you inside the luxury big rig that carries the entire Tonka truck racing team. But we weren’t about to leave their ranch without playing in the sand box! For that we need this supercharged, ten-inch-lifted, t-shirt cannon-packing pickup truck. » 8/20/15 3:16pm 8/20/15 3:16pm

The 4-Cylinder Toyota Tacoma Is Completely Pointless

I’ve spent the day pawing through the 2016 Toyota Tacoma’s just-released specs, looking for something to celebrate or dump on or at least launch a disjointed rant over. Fuel economy is weak, but otherwise it seems like a decent truck for the money. Unless you buy the four-cylinder. » 8/17/15 8:00pm 8/17/15 8:00pm

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma: A Spicy Taco That Doesn't Taste All That New

Toyota has left their Taco sitting on the counter since 2005, and it has gotten stale. Nobody wants to eat a crusty taco, but that’s all there’s been on the menu for the longest time. By default, those hungry for a mid-size truck have had no choice but to clog their noses and scarf down what Chef Toyota was cranking… » 8/17/15 10:27am 8/17/15 10:27am

Watch The 2016 Toyota Tacoma Rescue Itself With New 'Crawl Control'

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma will still come with rear drum brakes, but its traction control tech has become a lot more advanced. Let’s watch the truck get buried to its axles in sand, and then activate “Crawl Control” and turn its tires into shovels for an easy self-recovery. » 8/11/15 11:10am 8/11/15 11:10am

Report: Chevy's Gonna Start Making Aluminum Trucks Too

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.http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/chevys-anti-al... » 8/05/15 12:09pm 8/05/15 12:09pm

The Weakest Truck In This Diesel Throwdown Has 1190 LB-FT Of Torque

You may have heard diesel pickups can put down gargantuan power with pretty basic modifications. With fully built engines and watermelon-sized turbos, some these babies are hitting over 2,000 Lb-Ft. Watch ‘em race and squeeze through obstacle courses towing construction equipment! » 7/31/15 3:32pm 7/31/15 3:32pm

How A Ford F-150 Aluminum Repair Cost $17,000 And Took A Month

Ford says their certified repair centers can fix the 2015 Ford F-150 and its all-new aluminum body “no problem.” But this crazy story of a month-long job and an unbelievable service bay bill — $17,000! — proves there are still some serious challenges to getting this truck back on the road after an accident. » 7/23/15 3:39pm 7/23/15 3:39pm

Five Reasons You Should Buy A Cheap Used Pickup 

I’m not really a truck person. I respect trucks, but never had much of a desire to own one. Then I had to move a bunch of junk from my house when I realized my Volkswagen GTI and our Sienna minivan weren’t going to cut it. After borrowing my dad’s Frontier, I developed a new appreciation for the cheap pickup. Here is… » 7/22/15 10:27am 7/22/15 10:27am

Chevy's Anti-Aluminum Truck Ads Are Bullshit

Chevy’s got a new batch of videos knocking Ford for making the 2015 F-150 out of aluminum. The ads are well produced, but remarkably dumb. Chevy’s dead-set on selling “aluminum” as “weak” and ergo unfit to be truck-making stuff, but that argument is fundamentally idiotic.http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/why-the-alumin... » 7/21/15 3:38pm 7/21/15 3:38pm
