Tacoma Owners Say What They Would Like To See in an Electric Tacoma

I asked this question if Toyota Tacoma drivers are ready to accept an electric Tacoma, should that be available one day. Here are some of the interesting responses people shared under my question at the Toyota Tacoma Enthusiasts FB group.. The general sentiment is openness, but but some improvements are necessary.

One comment writes that while there are hybrid trucks out there he doesn't think an all-electric Toyota Tacoma would be strong enough, but "hey, technology is advancing every day."

The 2017 Ford SVT Raptor F150 that debuted earlier this year at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show is powered by a new 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that has been specially tuned by Ford’s high performance SVT division and if the history of the Raptor is any indication – we could see this high powered EcoBoost V6 in other new F150 pickups in the future.

The New Ramcharger is Just Another Stupid April Fool's Joke

Over the past few weeks, word has spread around the internet that the Chrysler Group’s Ram Truck brand was working on a new large truck-based sport utility vehicle that will be named the Ramcharger, but Im sorry to inform everyone who didn’t realize this at first that the Ramcharger is yet another stupid April Fool’s joke pulled by a publication looking to score traffic with fake news.

Shelby Baja 700 Raptor F150 Packs Supercar Power

The 2017 Ford SVT Raptor F150 will derive its power from a specially tuned 3.5L EcoBoost V6, but the 2014 Raptor was powered by a 6.2L V8 and that older V8 pickup is the one that Shelby American has used to design their new Baja 700 package – with 700 horsepower and an off road suspension setup that make it the baddest truck on the road and off.

Almost a year ago, we looked at the possibility of a 2015 Ford F150 that could be the most fuel efficient half ton truck in America with the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine from the 2015 Ford Mustang and now that we know more about both the new F150 and the new Mustang – the idea of a 4-cylinder EcoBoost SFE F150 seems even better.

SHOCKER! Truck Buyers Don’t Really Care About Fuel Economy

Don't believe us that fuel economy isn't the number one buying factor? Here is the proof.

Monthly Truck Sales

One of the tell-tale signs on consumer behavior is monthly truck sales. Historically truck sales rise throughout the year and due to various market conditions.

2015 Ford F350 King Ranch Review: Premium Luxury Meets Extreme Capabilities

There was a day and age where a heavy duty 1-ton pickup with dual rear wheels and one of the industry’s most powerful diesel engines would be reserved for a full-blown work truck, but the 2015 Ford F350 King Ranch is a remarkable combination of a premium luxury vehicle and a pickup that can do almost any work that you can throw at it.

This Ford F150 Based Bronco isn't a Real Thing

Over the past week or so, there has been a great many people writing in to ask if the 2016 Ford Bronco shown above is actually coming to market and while this F150-based SUV looks awesome, I’m unfortunately writing this piece to point out that the Bronco shown here is nothing but an April Fool’s Day joke that has been continuously drudged up by disreputable automotive sites.
