What Bed Liner is Best?
Jun 20, 2014 - 9:39 AM - by

A pickup truck without a bedliner feels like a foot without a sock or a cell phone without a case. For quite some time, a simple sheet of plywood was the unofficial bed protector of America, but modern day pickup trucks are almost all outfitted with the latest and greatest bedliners made from a variety of materials. So which one is best for you?

VIDEO: Ford F-150 Tremor Review
Apr 23, 2014 - 5:51 PM - by

A sport truck for the 21st century
by Craig Cole

Americans build stuff, go places and haul heavy loads. Consequently we buy trucks, and lots of them. In fact we can’t get enough of these versatile vehicles. Ford’s capable F-150 is one of if not the most popular of the bunch, and after a few days in the saddle of an earth-quaking Tremor model it’s not hard to understand why.

Seismic Activity

The F-150 lineup is like a Mongolian barbecue; there’s something for everyone. Offerings range from the fleet-grade XL trim level to the Baja-ready SVT Raptor to the luxurious Limited model, with numerous other versions filling up the spaces in between.

But where does the Tremor fit into the F-Series family? Well, unlike other variants this truck is bred for the street. It’s got style and stance in spades, but all that shapeliness is backed up with

2015 Ford F-150 Explored in Depth
Feb 24, 2014 - 9:03 AM - by

Ford has completely redesigned its wildly popular F-150 pickup for the 2015 model year. This tough truck made its global debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

LIGHTing The Way

The company is taking an enormous chance with the new F-150. Breaking with tradition they’ve switched to an aluminum body in an aggressive bid to cut mass and save fuel. Traditionally the widespread use of this lightweight metal has been exclusive to top-dollar luxury cars like the renowned Audi A8.

The end result of this innovation and hard work is jaw dropping. Company representatives claim they’ve reduced the truck’s curb weight by 700 pounds. The overwhelming majority of that reduction, about 500 pound’s worth came out of the body. Engineers were able to take about 130 pounds out of the truck’s powertrain and an additional 70 out of the frame, which is now 77 percent high-strength steel, up from just 23 percent in today’s F-150.

A heavily revamped engine lineup also accompanies the new body. Ford’s immensely thirsty 6.2-liter V8 has been left to the brand’s Super Duty trucks. This means the popular and torque-rich 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 should serve as the top offering. A familiar 5.0-liter V8 will still be available.

Beyond these changes there’s a new base engine. The F-150’s current entry-level powerplant is a 3.7-liter V6, but since the 2015 model is so much lighter they’ve been able to downsize that to a 3.5-liter six-shooter to further increase fuel economy.

Even with the dip in displacement “we’ll still deliver better acceleration” said Doug Scott, truck group marketing manager at Ford. Additionally Scott said it should be “the most efficient F-150 ever,” though he declined to share any fuel economy estimates.

All-New EcoBoast V6

Aside from its groundbreaking aluminum body, this truck also features a brand-new EcoBoost V6. According to Scott it’s a “whole new engine family” and the
