  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. Thom Cannel: Article & Photos Zane Merva: Photos GM-Trucks.com June 24th, 2019 This could be the shortest Chevrolet truck review in history. If that's what you came for, you can stop reading right now. But if you're curious... Why is the 3.0L Duramax so awesome? Because unless you’re building a custom lifestyle truck or simply using it for basic tasks you’ll be no doubt upgrade to more powerful engine when you buy your next Silverado or Sierra. That means either the famous 6.2-liter V-8 gas engine or this all-new 3.0L Duramax
  3. I felt GM has always been conservative in giving out rated mpg on their cars and I have hit the mark or even get better mpg on my truck based on the window sticker. https://driving.ca/ford/f-150/auto-news/news/ford-sued-for-allegedly-falsifying-fuel-economy-ratings-on-f-150-trucks
  4. Thom Cannell Contributor, GM-Trucks.com February 26th, 2019 General Motors had no news in Chicago, but delivered crowd-pleasing displays from Chevrolet and GMC, as well as Cadillac and their crossovers and SUVs. Of interest to truck enthusiasts were Heavy Duty Chassis Cabs from Ram, facelifts and equipment improvements from Toyota, face-lifts for some Nissan CUVs, a new Range Rover Evoke and more. The Chicago show is immensely different from Detroit, and that is a pun. With 2.3 million square feet of display space, the result is wide-spread (and often poorly

  6. Thom Cannell Contributor, GM-Trucks.com February 5th, 2019 2019 - Last North American International Auto Show - as we've known it. Filled with sprawling displays of gleaming sheet metal and enough spotlights to illuminate the International Space Station, this was the final chilly, Detroit Auto Show in January. 2019 lacked the European media-hustle excitement, which left extra space for other exhibitors. Next year the Grand Experiment begins, moving show dates to June and using the Cobo Center rooftop and multiple venues spread throughout downtown Detroit
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 10-8-2018 Ford released the specifications of its North American market new Ford Ranger over the weekend. The specifications are a clear indication of the benefits of a boosted gasoline engine. At least on paper. The Ranger will launch with just one engine. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost, four-cylinder with 310 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic. With its towing package, the Ranger will have a 7,500-lb maximum towing capacity. That exceeds the maximum 6,800 that the top-selling Toyota Tacomas equippe
  8. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4-27-2018 Ford has announced that it will begin to phase out of the passenger car market. The most recent announcement caps a long list of hints by Ford that the company could not seem to build cars that are competitive or that were profitable to make domestically. Ford will be walking away from a volume of business larger than the total sales volume of Volkswagen in America. The Mustang will stay, but most of the Ford cars will not have a next generation. FCA recently canceled two Dodge and Chrysler models, deciding t
  9. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/abandon-car-ford-dropping-all-passenger-car-models-except-mustang well, it looks like Ford is putting all of its eggs into one basket; by dropping every passenger car currently in production and going all in on Trucks and SUVs. essentially, the ONLY car they will have left is the Mustang and even then by 2020, the Mustang will be paired with a word that makes the performance community projectile vomit when it is uttered: HYBRID. i for one, feel sorry that Ford is about to essentially ruin the last good nameplate it has.
  10. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-14-2018 Ford’s new Ranger debuted last night at midnight just after the launch of the new Silverado. The new Ranger arrives with modern driver aids, modern infotainment and will sport a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. “Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing. “The all-new Ranger is designed for today’s midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utili
  11. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-11-2018 Ford is the latest automaker to be sued over emissions from diesel vehicles. This time, it is owners who are alleging that Super Duty pickups are not in compliance with emissions control laws under light loads and while climbing grades. The 50-state class-action status suit filed in Michigan alleges that Ford’s diesel pickup trucks emit up to 50 times the allowable levels of oxides of nitrogen. Bosch is also named as a co-defendant. Bosch and Ford worked together on the Super Duty’s diesel emissions con
  12. 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
  13. 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

  15. Hi All! We excited to share our installation guide of the Magnum Headache rack on my 2014 Silverado 1500. This installation procedure is going to be very similar for most trucks. Enjoy! for the video.
  16. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3-29-2017 Ford will build the upcoming Ranger midsize pickup and Bronco midsize SUV at its Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne. The engines will be built at the Romeo Engine Plant in Michigan. Ford says that the Ranger will be rolling off the line in 2018, so figure it will likely be a 2019 model-year truck. The Bronco will follow in 2020. Ford's return to the midsize truck market could not have been timed worse. Toyota, GM, Nissan, and even Honda are building and selling all the midsize trucks they can and have been for two years or more. In
  17. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-9-2017 Ford surprised many by announcing that the 2018 F-150 will join Ram in offering a 3.0-Liter turbo diesel option. Ford's Power Stroke diesel will be available with a 10-speed automatic. Look for Ford to surpass Ram in class-leading fuel economy. Ford revealed the new model year vehicle during the Pregame show of the NFL Wildcard game at 4 pm yesterday (Jan 8th). Other highlights of the 2018 F-150, which goes on sale this fall (of 2017) include: - Adaptive cruise control that can manage speeds in traffic all the way to a full sto
  18. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-9-2017 Ford announced today that the Ranger midsize pickup truck will return for model year 2019. That means that the Ranger is about two full years away from being available for sale. Along with this news, Ford announced a rugged new Broco midsize SUV. Ford made this statement on the Bronco: - “We’ve heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rug
  19. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-4-2017 Based on the full year of sales reported today by GM and Ford, GM sold more pickups. Although Ford's F-Series is indeed the single nameplate winner in the sales race, its total of 820,799 units is not enough to equal GM's combined pickup truck sales of 942,730. When it comes to "full-size" pickups, Ford edged out GM since GM sold a total of 796,556 Silverado and Sierras. It was the Colorado and Canyon "Midsize" trucks that put GM over the top. General Motors bringing back the midsize pickups was perhaps its best strategic decisio
  20. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-12-2016 Last week the news that the Ford Raptor and F-150 were being delayed due to the new 10-speed transmission co-designed by Ford and GM was tempting. GM-Trucks considered bringing that news story to our readers, but when possible, we like to keep the news upbeat and not dwell on minor negative issues. We also didn't have any source from Ford on the matter, so we would have had to trust what others were saying. We're glad we held off. It turns out the news wasn't true. TechTimes printed a correction and points out that the essence of
  21. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 9/27/2016 In the beginning of August, I put in my official prediction that the brand new 2017 Duramax engine would jump in power output considerably. Turns those predictions were extremely close. A few days ago GM Powertrain accidently leaked the official numbers on a public dealer portal website. TruckTrend was luck enough to grab a screen shot of the stats before GM took the numbers down from the internet. Here what TruckTrend caught. As you can see, the 2017 Duramax LP5 will be rated at 445-horsepower at 2,800RPM and 910 l
  22. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 8/18/2016 What's the biggest unknown detail that enthusiasts what to know about GM's 2017 model year. Only two numbers. Horsepower and torque. Specifically, how much of each will the new L5P Duramax Diesel serve up. We've been slowly learning about the 2017 Silverado and 2017 Sierra this week. We know what the new colors are and how the option packages will be structured. We know the RPO codes and we know that there's a new and improved Duramax Diesel engine on the way. So, while GM is playing mum with the official numbers, we're going
  23. Let's also face the truth that the reason GM and Toyota sell-out their mid-size trucks each month may not be an accident. Perhaps they both know that Ford will return to the U.S. market and that is the reason two of the globe's largest and most capable automakers have not expanded their factories to meet the demand. Factories and workers are very difficult to downsize. Sold-out trucks is not a bad thing. Last, although we root for GM here, imagine an aluminum Ford Ranger with the 2.7-liter Ecoboost. It gives me the shivers in a good way. How about you? Our story Source: Fox News.
  24. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12/15/2015 Let's all agree to be honest about a few things. First, as we say here in New England "Nothing on the level." That is a quote made popular by Howie Carr, a famous Boston corruption reporter. So when we read that international media were invited to a Ford Australia meeting during which Ford accidentally showed the press a new Ranger testing alongside the Tacoma (a North-American product, Hilux is the international model) and the Colorado, we are not as surprised as we might be. It could be an accident, a misunderstanding, or Ford m
  25. 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,
