How Should We Make The Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tacoma Battle Off-Road?

I'm bringing a 2014 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X to Moab, Utah tomorrow. Wes Siler is meeting me there with a 2014 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. We're going deep and we're going hard off-road, so give us some great and terrible ideas of what we should put these trucks through. » 10/16/14 6:16pm Thursday 6:16pm

Nissan Renewing Promise Of 5.0 Cummins Turbodiesel Titan 'Coming Soon'

We've been hearing the 2015 Nissan Titan was stepping up its game with a 5.0 turbocharged Cummins diesel, an engine that might also show up in the 2016 Toyota Tundra. We were almost ready to forget that 'til today, when Nissan started titillating us all over again with "#CumminsSoon" on Twitter. » 10/13/14 1:20pm 10/13/14 1:20pm

Four Chevy Colorados Plowed Into Each Other En Route To A Launch Party

GM can't catch a break getting the 2015 Chevy Colorado and 2015 GMC Canyon launched. Damn shame, because they're both awesome to drive. But it looks like four of the first batch have already destroyed each other in a domino-style pile-up on the way to a party in St. Louis. » 10/09/14 2:08pm 10/09/14 2:08pm

Two Brands Benefitted While Overall Pickup Truck Sales Dropped

The 2015 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Fakes Its Engine Noise, But I Couldn't Tell

When we found out the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost pumps "augmented engine noise" into the cabin via speakers, many of us cried 'heresy.' But now that I've experienced the same in the 2015 Ford F-150 EcoBoost without realizing it, I'm starting to think it might not be such a big deal. » 10/03/14 12:16pm 10/03/14 12:16pm

Ram Is Committed To Making Small(ish) Diesel Trucks

Until the Duramax-powered Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon show up (supposedly 2016) the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the smallest diesel pickup you can buy in America, and it's also the most fuel-efficient. Ram is convinced this is What The People Want, and they're about to start building a whole bunch more of them. » 10/01/14 6:10pm 10/01/14 6:10pm

Toyota Tacoma Suspension 'Prone To Fracturing:' 690,000 Recalls

The mighty Toyota Tacoma has been taken down a peg by a nasty little issue with the leaf spring suspension. Apparently it's liable to "fracture due to stress and corrosion," which can mean a pointy piece of metal will repeatedly ram into your truck's gas tank and spill its contents all over the road. » 9/29/14 6:49pm 9/29/14 6:49pm

2015 Ford F-150 Can Tow 12,200 Lbs, Carry An Absurd 3,300 Lbs In Bed

The 2015 Ford F-150's maximum towing capacity has been announced at a massive 12,200 pounds, while payload (what it can hold in the bed) is an even more staggering 3,300 pounds. It's a hell of an evolution for the "half-ton" truck segment, which used to stand for a 1,000-lb payload rating. » 9/29/14 7:50am 9/29/14 7:50am

Bass Pro Shops Toyota Tundra Is A Cool, Half-Assed Idea

Expensive and awesome outdoor brand lined up with a good half-ton truck: the Bass Pro Shops Edition Toyota Tundra sure sounds like it has a lot of potential. But what it has is a sticker and some bolt-on fender flares. It feels like a missed opportunity for some Toyota-branded coolers and integrated fishing rod… » 9/26/14 5:34pm 9/26/14 5:34pm
