  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-24-2019 Ford has been working hard behind the scenes to develop the world's first mass-produced, mainstream electric pickup truck. That development is now to the point where Ford is ready to start showing off a bit. This week, Ford's chief engineer for the F-150, Linda Zhang, hooked up the test mule to ten double-decker rail cars. She then tugged that train 1,000 feet. To add a bit of drama, she then loaded up 42 F-150s into those rail cars and did it again. Clearly, electric trucks will be tow monsters. Ford is one of
  2. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5-9-2018 A fire at Wangfen Automotive Holding Group’s Meridian Lightweight Technologies plant in Eaton Rapids, Michigan has halted production of the Ford F-150. The plant makes structural components like radiator cradles in the F-150 and Super Duty trucks. It also makes instrument housings. Ford says that its business accounts for roughly a third of the plant’s production output. That leads us to wonder if GM might also be affected. “This is a fluid situation, but we are working closely with our supplier and UAW partne
  3. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-8-2018 Ford announced a sixth engine option for the F-150 line this week. The new engine is a 3.0-liter, V6 “Power Stroke” turbo diesel. The new engine will produce its peak torque of 440 ft-lbs at 1,750 RPM. To make the most of that twist, Ford has mated it to a diesel-specific SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission which can shift non-sequentially. In other words, it can skip over gears to find the right one for the circumstances. Ford’s aim is to produce the best towing combination in the F-150’s class in terms of
  4. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-28-2017 Please don't kill the messenger! Motor Trend has named the Ford F-150 its “Truck of the Year” in the same week U.S. News & World Report Autos chose Ford as the best truck brand. Ford can’t seem to lose a contest these days. These wins come just a few weeks after the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) named the F-150 the Truck of Texas for the second straight year. Nic Phillips, President of TAWA, said of its group’s award, “Ford’s 2018 F-150 Pickup, boosted by its extreme performance 2018 Raptor
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-5-2017 The Consumer electronics show has become one of the biggest car shows each year. Like it or not, many people link cars and trucks with electronic gadgets and this show is the one at which automakers try to impress techies with what they have, and what they will have. Part of Ford's deluge of press releases included an announcement that the F-150 will be offered with a hybrid drivetrain option "By 2020..." General Motors has offered the Silverado and Sierra with a hybrid drivetrain off and on since 2004. We even have a member at GM-
  6. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 8-9-2016 In the month of July, GM's pickup sales simply crushed Ford's. Ford sold a respectable 65,657 F-150 trucks. Since Ford has decided to sit out the dramatic expansion of the midsize truck market, that is the total pickup sales for Ford last month. GM's full size pickups, the Silverado and Sierra beat the F-150 with a combined total of 76,544 units delivered. Add in the Colorado and Canyon's combined total of 12,727 and it is a rout. GM's pickup truck sales topped Ford's by about 36%. Year to date Ford is still ahead by about 30,
  7. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 6/8/16 Chevrolet is taking Ford to task on the strength and durability of the F-150's all-aluminum bed. In a series of videos released by the automaker, the company repeatably demonstrates how the bed of the Ford F-150 turns to swiss-cheese during three side by side demonstrations that compare it to the high-strength steel bed used on the Silverado. Spend a few minutes and watch these three videos in order. Chevy Silverado vs. Ford F-150: Howie Long Compares Truck Beds | Chevrolet Silverado Strong: Steel Bed Outperforms Aluminu
  8. Josh and I had a chance to go out and do some back to back to back comparison driving between Project Sierra and a 2011 Ford F-150, equipped with a 5.0L V8. Both vehicles were 2011 models, extended cabs, and featured the "mid-level" V8 engine offered. All in all, a good matchup between the two. We're working on writing up "comparison" article in the next few days. In the meantime, here's our general thoughts. Styling: Sierra is clear winner Chassis: Ford seems tighter but rides MUCH rougher. Tie Powertrain: Ford wins here, no debate. the 5.0L is an amazing engine Interior:
  9. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5/2/2016 GM-Trucks.com would like to thank the members who suffered through the prior two videos we posted about the Ford Raptor. In those prior vids, the Raptor tiptoes around a bit and then daintily hikes up its skirt as it slowly passes through a stream (Don't get water above the hubs!). In this new video, the Raptor, which apparently is afraid of water, is in the dessert and seems to be in its element. A fair amount of the video footage is of the Raptor airborne, so maybe it is more bird than fish. Hey that makes sense, Raptor, as in bir
  10. The exact cause of the problem is related to the output speed sensor on the vehicle’s transmission lead frame. Dealers will inspect the transmission, note and then clear any codes, update the transmission software and also replace the transmission lead frame. Ford is also extending the warranty coverage of that part to 10 years and 150K miles. The transmission related to this recall is the Ford 6R80. This is a six-speed transmission that Ford manufacturers under license. If you have one of the vehicles listed above and want to check to see if your vehicle is included in the recall pleas
  11. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4/27/2016 Ford announced today that is recalling about 202,000 model year '11-'12 Ford F-150, and 2012 Ford Expedition, Ford Mustang and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because the transmission can suddenly downshift into first gear. Ford says in its recall announcement, "Depending on the speed of the vehicle at the time of the downshift, the driver could experience an abrupt speed reduction that could cause the rear tires to slide or lock up. This condition could result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash." This is not just

  13. Today, UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles issued a 5-day strike notice to Ford for its Kansas City F-150 plant according to the Detroit Free Press. Settles was quoted as saying "The company (Ford) has failed to negotiate in good faith at the local level on issues surrounding manpower provisions, the national heat stress program, and skilled trades scheduling amongst others."
  14. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9/30/2015 The UAW is not happy with the contract negotiated by its membership with FCA US (Chrysler). The rank and file may reject it. Today, UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles issued a 5-day strike notice to Ford for its Kansas City F-150 plant according to the Detroit Free Press.

  15. Large discounts on large trucks/suv's is nothing new. Not sure if it is worth noting or not? But thinking the supply issue being the cause of losing a little market share has been over done. The dealer lots I go past do not seem to be lacking inventory. Edit: added new link with more detail that the original post. Did not know about a frame shortage. http://www.autoblog.com/2015/07/16/ford-offering-10000-incentives-f150/
  16. Steep discounts on trucks, or any vehicle for that matter, in the middle or near the end of their design cycle is commonplace. However, a five-digit discount on a brand new vehicle is unusual to say the least. Ford's aluminum trucks were expected to scare the folks at GM and Ram, and maybe even Toyota, who likes to keep its sales low. Nobody seems very worried anymore. Ford's discounting may in part be caused by GM's own deep discounts. As we recently reported GM has been offering up to $8,500 on some trucks. Ford says that its incentives are lower than this time last year and that its
  17. Visitors to Chevrolet.com are prompted to watch these three videos, which all seem to make the same point. You've got to be an idiot to buy a truck with an aluminum body. That said, each video goes about it in very unique way. Take a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIC7Fw1rFF4 So, what do you think? Is highlighting a short term difference a good long term move for Silverado marketing?

  19. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 7/6/15 Hot off the 4th of July weekend, Chevrolet is going for broke to let the world know they think Ford F-150's all aluminum body..well.. sucks.

  20. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6/9/2015 Silverado sales have been through the roof these past few months with many outlets now reporting that the Silverado is "gaining on the Ford F-150." But is it really? The Ford has been constrained due to production changes to the body we all know about. Then there is the huge amount of cash on the dash Chevy is using to lure Silverado buyers. 24/7 Wall Street reports that Silverado customers are being given up to $8,500 off the price of a new Silverado before negotiations even begin. That is easy to believe if you look at the ad

  22. By Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 12/3/2014 Grabbing the title away from the all new Ford F-150, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has won the coveted title of Motor Trend's "2015 Truck of the Year". After the magazine's "most comprehensive truck evaluation in history", Motor Trend editors were impressed. The new Chevy Colorado gained universal praise while beating out seven other models among ten total vehicles tested.

  23. http://money.cnn.com/2014/01/02/autos/aluminum-f150/ Before the fanboys start saying "but what happens if you get in an accident" take a closer look at what you got now for a truck if its new. They already use stuff so thin its like tin. Also they have been using some aluminum body parts for years already. They will still use a steel cargo box. I think this is a good idea. GM is stuck on things like AFM oil burners, while Dodge and Ford are thinking outside the box with Twin Turbo's, 1/2 ton diesels, and aluminum bodies.
