2001 Nissan Xterra- Firestorm
It’s not every day you see a ’bagged and ’bodied Nissan Xterra. It’s even less likely you’ll see someone in the firefighting profession who owns a mini this intricate. Searcy, Arkansas, resident Josh Bertagnolli is a firefighter and has been for the past seven years. During his off time, he is an avid custom truck

Deep Dive: Ford’s 1.5L and 3.0L Diesel Engines
In 2018, Ford announced two new diesel engines designed, tested, and built for trucks. One, the EcoBlue 1.5L inline-four-cylinder destined for the Ford Transit Connect, and the other, the 3.0L Power Stroke V-6, aimed at F-150 owners who haul and tow. We spent hours interviewing Ford engineers to deliver an in-depth look at each engine.

First Drive: 2019 Honda Talon Side-by-Side
We got our first taste of the 2019 Honda Talon side-by-side late last year, just before it was introduced alongside the Honda Passport SUV. Our brief drive in the two-seat sport UTV was all too short, giving us a taste of this machine’s capabilities but not allowing us to fully sample what it had to

First Drive: 2020 Kia Telluride
The trendy winter-ski/summer-festival town of Telluride, Colorado, population roughly 2,500, looks like a former mining town because it is. Nestled in a canyon surrounded by forested mountains and cliffs and weathered ruins of old mining operations, it once yielded deposits of zinc, lead, copper, silver, and gold. Its impressive Historic District, one of Colorado’s 20

Truck Trend Shop Class: All About CAN Bus
Today’s passenger vehicles can utilize about 70 onboard computers (ECUs, actuators, and so forth). So let’s consider this group an extended family, and just like any family, communication means a lot. All members rely on each other, and without talking back and forth and exchanging information, a family can become dysfunctional. The need for a

Daily Driven: 2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
Haters, don’t fire up that typewriter just yet. We know the current Acura MDX has been on sale since the 2014 model year, and it’s probably overdue for a total redesign like its little brother, the RDX. But the MDX still acquits itself incredibly well, matching newer competitors jab for jab. Among its aces are

2019 Chevy Silverado- Cajun Red
The story of how Jermaine Yates met Jake McKiddie of Phat Phabz began around 10 years ago. During that time, Jermaine was in Colorado visiting friends when the inevitable happened to his ’bagged daily driver Dodge Dakota: The shock mounts broke off from the frame, making the ride unbearable.

How It’s Built: GMC’s CarbonPro Truck Bed
A pickup truck bed is the last place many people expect to find cool engineering and high-tech hardware. Hey, it’s rectangular and you toss all sorts of tools and gear inside it, case closed. Except GMC is throwing a wrench in the works and attempting to change truck buyers’ perceptions when it comes to truck

First Drive: Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle (ROAV) Concept
We expected the Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle (ROAV) concept to shake, fold and reform its red and black panels into a human-shaped robot then stomp off to fight crime. It would be a good guy, we think. After all, it’s Honda, known for safety and radio commercials about community service. While it turns out

1932 Willys Transformed Into An Aviation Tanker
The early 20th century brought us many things that boomed around the same time. Though automobiles and planes were around decades before, it took time for these engineering marvels to gain popularity. Henry Ford’s production line lowered the cost of his cars, which made them more affordable for the general population. On the aviation side,

An Autocross Ready Diesel-Powered 1964 Volvo Amazon

Well, first, it is diesel-powered, which makes it unique. Second, Marc’s company, Heritage Driven, actually specializes in projects like this.

Detonation: This Beautiful Country
As I stroll the streets of Moab, Utah, during the annual Easter Jeep Safari, I can’t help being in awe of the surrounding landscape.
