Kevin Blaser with the 2015 F-150 tailgate Ford’s all-new 2015 F-150 is nearly on the streets, but there’s one new feature that’s so last-minute, it wasn’t there when the truck was revealed at the 2014 Detroit auto show: Indentations on the inside of the tailgate perfectly placed to hold a beverage.

Oct 13 2014 9:03am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

We’re going to take a look at two of the Ram 1500’s engine options and shed a little more light on the relative merits and trade-offs of each.In the earlier days of fullsize trucks, the decision of which engine option to get was a pretty easy one. There was almost always an entry-level, low-cost six cylinder and one or two optional V-8s. Today, the options are a lot more varied, including turbocharged gas V-6s, and with the advent of the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, the first ...

Reliance on Truck and SUV Sales Brings Average DownDespite having the most fuel-efficient pickup and midsize premium SUV in the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel, Chrysler as a whole came in dead last in the latest EPA report surveying manufacturer-adjusted fuel economy.

Heavy Duty Haulers: These are the top 10 trucks for towing

Oct 9 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

As much as there is a horsepower war going on among today’s sports and super car makers, truck makers are battling just as hard to boast who can tow the most. To help out, we’ve pulled together the top 10 new trucks for towing. A couple of caveats, though. The noted maximum towing capacities for some vehicles require a fifth-wheel or gooseneck setup. And the competitive nature of the segment might mean that there could be a new truck-towing king crowned by the ti ...

Ford F-150 - First Drive

Oct 8 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Ford may be a massive automaker with products stretching the globe, but much of its success rides in the bed of the venerable F-150 pickup. The F-Series as a whole (F-150, F-250, F-350, and F-450) ranks as the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., pulling in nearly 500,000 sales in 2013. Revamping your top product is risky business, so Ford spent the better part of five years developing what was to become the all-new 2015 F-150.Before the truck hits showrooms later this year, ...
