My Dodge Ram 2500 drove quietly and comfortably on my recent excursion out to the Radwood 2 car show in Anaheim, California. The same couldn’t be said for the return venture back to Kansas. Somewhere near Flagstaff, Arizona, a low -pitched growling began emanating from within the steel beast - the 3,400 mile trip had…
Bright and early tomorrow morning, I’m taking all the toys and heading west to the Radwood 2 car show out in Anaheim, California. Before I get going, I wanted to show you all what it takes (and what it costs) to move three vehicles halfway across the United States.
Combining the versatile body of a Jeep Wrangler with the beefy, Cummins-powered chassis of a Ram 2500 sounds like a brilliant idea. Maybe. But someone in New Jersey did just that, and the result is one of the strangest looking Jeeps I’ve ever seen.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with the saying that “you’re only as strong as your weakest link.” It’s a cliché that can be applied to nearly anything: Sports teams, office environments, school group projects, and, you guessed it, vehicles.
If ball joints are allowed to degrade to the point of failure, it can lead to a wheel separating from the vehicle while driving. That is... not good. The Dodge Ram that I bought a few months back ended up having some loose joints up front, and I certainly didn’t want a nightmarish scenario like that to unfold. Here’s…
Jonathan Ward has made quite a name for himself turning old utility vehicles into art on wheels at his shop Icon 4x4. The Toyota FJs and Ford Broncos he’s reimagined are already famous, but his Dodge F-250 is one of the wildest work rigs you’ll ever see. And as beautiful as it is outside, you have to look close to see…
With Tesla purportedly gearing up to introduce an all-electric semi next month, diesel engine supplier Cummins took some of the automaker’s buzz away on Tuesday, revealed an all-electric prototype truck of its own.
No diesel engine on earth is as legendary as a 12-valve Cummins. Not only is the inline-six known for its awesome stock torque figures, but the 1,100 pound iron hulk from Columbus, Indiana has a reputation for being almost literally unkillable, even after it’s been modified to produce prodigious power figures. The…
It’s shameful, really, how excited I am about ten-seconds of grainy vertical video. But sweet crusty rusty goodness check out this Cummins-swapped 1925 tow truck!
A second, potential class-action lawsuit has been filed against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and diesel engine supplier Cummins, alleging that both conspired to fraudulently misrepresented how much pollution Dodge and Ram pickup trucks were producing.
Automotive law firm Hagens Berman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ram Trucks parent company Fiat Chrysler and its diesel engine supplier Cummins, alleging that the companies collaborated to fraudulently under-report how much pollution heavy-duty pickup trucks were producing.
Diesel-powered pony cars—so perverse and unnecessary that I have to admit I’m intrigued. The real question is, what’s filthier: the fumes pluming out of these exhaust pipes or the grandiloquence coming out of this narrator’s mouth?
A Cummins-diesel powered Jeep Wrangler is pretty cool. But a diesel Jeep that also works as a submarine? It’s a redneck James Bond dream come true!
At this point you know the Nissan Titan and its heavier-duty brother the Titan XD are refreshed and repowered for 2016. But this is the first time we’ve seen them in any configuration besides a full four-door crew cab.
In the pickup truck world, one thing is certain: there’s the Ford F-150, standing head and shoulders above the rest in sales, marketing, and good old American heritage, and then there’s every other truck on the market. That’s the rule. Now let me introduce you to the diesel-chugging, earth-moving, miniature American…
Pricing has been announced for five trims of the 2016 Nissan Titan XD; basically every crew cab variant with the diesel engine ranging from just over $40,000 to a top trim at $60,520. The base model is officially the cheapest four-door, four-wheel drive Cummins you can buy new, but that might not matter.
If you want to see a monster truck crush rocks, don’t bother watching this. No, wait! I promise you don’t want to miss any of the beautiful details on Winslow Bent’s custom-made ’42 Dodge Power Wagon. Check it out with comedian car guy Jay Leno.
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is supposed to be ballsier than your standard pickup truck, but softer than a true heavy duty three-quarter ton’er. So is it the Goldilocks or the bastard stepchild? I put a little mud on its tires to find out.
It’s finally time: Nissan will let us drive their all-new Cummins-diesel powered Titan pickup truck tomorrow. Get your questions in today so I know what to poke, prod and ask about for you!
