Outlaw Diesel Super Series Class Champions’ Roundtable
Diesel Power has been linked with the Outlaw Diesel Super Series—North America’s premiere diesel drag-racing sanction—for nearly five years, in a relationship that has grown from editor KJ Jones simply attending a few events, to the brand joining forces with ATS Diesel Performance in 2016, as a co-sponsor for the very popular 7.70 Index Eliminator.

Top 10 LS Engine Articles
It’s amazing how two simple letters—LS—can immediately identify one of the most revered engine platforms in automotive high performance. Technically, General Motors’ cast-iron “LS” small-block is the V-8 powerplant used in all Chevrolet and GMC rear-wheel-drive cars and trucks. With the exception of rod bearings, lifters and cylinder-bore spacing, the LS platform is completely different

First Look: Lexus J201 Concept
When you say the name, “Lexus,” hard-core off-roading, or even today’s current “it” activity of rugged-terrain overlanding certainly aren’t uses that immediately come to mind for its SUVs. Sure, several of the brand’s utility offerings bring plenty of performance to the table for “spirited” on-road driving experiences. But for all intents and purposes, luxury is

Let’s take a minute to talk tech. Diesel-tech, specifically, and the simple upgrades, bolt-on installations, and more elaborate full-truck builds that make up what many enthusiasts feel is the most compelling segment of the truck hobby.

Rewind: Top 10 Diesel Stories of September 2020
Let’s face it. Reminiscing, “looking back” at something memorable, is one of the most universal components of our society’s DNA. Diesel enthusiasts typically recount memories through “Throwback Thursdays,” “Flashback Fridays,” and any other days on social media, and by holding classic bench racing sessions with friends, while enjoying a few cold ones in the shop

Top 10 Ford Rangers
Introduced in 1982, Ford’s Ranger—initially categorized as a compact truck (best-selling in the U.S. from 1987-2004)—was the successor to the company’s Mazda-built Courier. In its first generation, which ran until 1992, Ranger grew a large following of mini-truck customizers, “artists” if you will, who took the platform to new levels of floor pan-scraping “low” through

Top 10 Chevy Colorados
In September 2004, Chevrolet debuted Colorado, an all-new, midsize pickup that replaced its popular S-10 compact (the spawn of the LUV mini truck). From a personalizing and customizing standpoint, it took a minute for the new rig to gain acceptance. It was larger and more powerful, and as such, initially considered “too big” to actually

Best New Diesel Truck Fuel Economy
For most diesel pickup trucks, horsepower and torque are the engine attributes that enthusiasts have the most interest in. Of course, “capability” is a major concern, but the overall amount of steam and grunt an oil-burner produces is usually the hot topic in diesel discussions. Although performance is important, fuel economy is another criteria that

First Drive: 2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel
As vehicle evaluations go, percentages are often used for qualifying a truck’s makeup, capability, etc. A rig’s makeup might have 50 percent of one thing and an equal amount of another, or the ratio can be 70/30, 60/40, and so on. It really doesn’t matter what the ratios are because the math always calculates to

Top 10 7.3L Ford Power Stroke Crank-No-Start Causes
When it comes to diesel-engine hierarchy, we feel it’s fair to say Ford’s 1994–2003 7.3L Power Stroke engine sits squarely in a middle space among all of the oil burners that have powered heavy-duty pickup trucks. Like the 6.0L powerplant that immediately followed it in 2003, the good-old “seven-three” is either loved or hated (figuratively)

Diesel Engine Pros and Cons
We recently noted that although many of us like to think we’re without error at all times, nothing in our world is 100 percent fail proof. There’s a small margin for error in everything.
