Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

The honest little Nissan Frontier midsize pickup hasn’t received a major update or overhaul in the last 15 years, but with sales of the midsize pickup increasing, and new competition from the Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator, the Frontier will reportedly finally get a redesign next year.

Your Next Non-American Mazda Truck Will Be An Isuzu Instead Of A Ford

Your Next Non-American Mazda Truck Will Be An Isuzu Instead Of A Ford

There’s some musical chairs going on with a few of our favorite global-market small trucks never destined to come to the U.S. The Mazda BT-50 , currently based on the Ford Ranger, will be based on the Isuzu D-Max, which is basically a Chevy Colorado, for its next iteration. Make sense?

Mazda and Isuzu jointly released the most unsexy press release I’ve ever seen simply stating; “Isuzu will...

Ram And Mitsubishi Are Trading Trucks Again

Ram And Mitsubishi Are Trading Trucks Again

This week Ram announced it will more than double its lineup of half-ton trucks in the Middle Eastern market while adding a completely new one: the Ram 1200. It’s a rebadged Mitsubishi L200/Triton Ram’s calling “a metric ton” pickup truck. Mitsubishi and (Fiat) Chrysler are at it again!

Mitsubishi and Ram (well, when it was Dodge) have traded truck platforms before. The excellent 1980s...

What's The Point Of The 2017 Chevy Colorado's New Engine And Gearbox?

What's The Point Of The 2017 Chevy Colorado's New Engine And Gearbox?

General Motors is giving the Chevrolet Colorado an entirely new V6 gasoline engine with cylinder deactivation and an eight-speed transmission for 2017. Apparently the idea is to give the truck better performance and economy, which sounds great. But GM’s estimated new 0-60 mph and MPG figures? “Essentially [a] carryover” from the old truck. Boo!

The truck’s Chief Engineer Stan Ludlow broke it...

The Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck Looks Like A Freaking Sports Car

The Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck Looks Like A Freaking Sports Car

Even knowing the Mercedes-Benz pickup truck is be based off the somewhat-sleek Nissan Navara , I thought the company would line it up aesthetically with the brickish style of its commercial vehicles. Looks like I was very wrong– squint at the right spot and you might mistake this thing for a sports car.

The truck is slated to be officially revealed October 25 in Stockholm, Sweden...

Here's How Badly The Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Wants To Be Taken Seriously

Here's How Badly The Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Wants To Be Taken Seriously

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is like a Ford Raptor Lite—daily drivable pickup with strong off-road pretenses. The Taco’s just a little smaller. And slower. And not that much cheaper. But you can still get it with three pedals, so it’s hard to hate—and it’s going racing for real next year, in the desert.

This Tacoma TRD Pro race truck, simply named the Tacoma TRD Pro Race Truck, was built by...

The Toyota Hilux Still Has A Critical Weakness

The Toyota Hilux Still Has A Critical Weakness

The Toyota Hilux is supposed to be right behind cockroaches and John McClane on our comprehensive list of “hardest things to kill.” But looks like we might have finally found this supertruck’s kryptonite: evasive maneuvering.

We’ve seen a Toyota Hilux survive exploding buildings and a road trip to the North Pole. But try to make an aggressive lane-change at 37 MPH and suddenly the thing looks...

Why Everyone's Going Nuts Over The Mercedes Pickup Truck: An Explainer

The Mercedes-Benz mid-sized pickup truck is really happening, and will look like a combination of the two “near-production” concept vehicles that were revealed today. Here’s a breakdown of the stats, specs and everything else you want to examine on the X-Class.

The truck was showcased in two flavors; the off-road “Powerful Explorer” and slinky “Stylish Adventurer.” The production-spec X-Class...

Here's How The New Ford Ranger Really Compares In Size To An F-150

Here's How The New Ford Ranger Really Compares In Size To An F-150

Remember the new Ford Ranger pickup truck? Of course you do. You probably clicked on this article to drop “Why don’t they sell it in America? ” into the comments. One of the reasons I’ve heard is “it’s too close in size to the F-150 ” but you never really see both trucks in the same place. Now you can.

Ford Ranger production was discontinued for the U.S. market in 2012, but a whole new...
