2022 Nissan Pathfinder First Drive
Nissan has been on one heck of a run lately, refreshing vehicle after vehicle. When complete, it’s Nissan’s mission to have one of the freshest full model lineups in the industry. The latest in Nissan’s lineup is the all-new 2022 Pathfinder, and we were just given the opportunity to jump behind the wheel. In the

Trucks That Tow the Most
Asking which truck tows the most weight is a slippery slope to start down. There’s literally an indescribable number of options and factors that affect a truck’s tow rating. Manufacturers most often list the absolute maximum that a truck of a certain configuration can tow. And in most cases this is for the lowest-trimmed truck

Revenge Road Trip: Highs and Lows in the Rocky Mountains
When we last checked in, we had just set out on what will be the final road trip before we retire our 2020 Pickup Truck of the Year award–winning long-term 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty tester. We reflected on the fact that our testing period began with a road trip, and so we’re ending it

2021 Dually Trucks
Dually trucks (or dualie, if you’re so inclined) are the workhorses of the heavy-duty pickup world. With upsized drivetrain components and higher-capacity wheels and tires, dual-rear-wheel trucks are the highest rated when it comes to both towing capacity and payload hauling. For the 2021 model year, all of the big American truck manufacturers offer a

What Is a ¾-ton Truck?
It’s a question we get all the time. What is a 3/4-ton truck? The confusion is understandable, as the terminology dates back many decades. The terms half-ton, 3/4-ton, and 1-ton are generally used to describe different classes of pickup trucks, based on how much payload the truck is able to carry. Naturally, as the years

How We’d Build This Cool 1952 Dodge Short-bed Pickup We Found on Craigslist
With prices on classic iron absolutely going through the roof, any time we find something for sale that’s older than 1980 with a price tag under $4,000, we get all sorts of excited, even if we have no intention whatsoever of buying.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor vs. 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor
For the 2021 model year Ford has introduced not one but two off-road-focused F-150 pickups: the 2021 F-150 Raptor and 2021 F-150 Tremor. Both trucks are offered as a Super Crew, four-wheel-drive short-bed with a 3.5L EcoBoost V-6. However, that’s where the similarities end. Follow along with us as we take a look at what

20 Cool Truck Features
“Countless” is the only term that appropriately quantifies the total number of rigs that have been featured in print versions of MotorTrend’s truck titles. And, selecting 20 cool rigs that received feature props seems impossible on one hand (because they’re all cool), and on the other hand it’s an assignment that probably can be repeated

10 Cool Truck Wraps
“Presentation” is everything in the custom-truck world. Of course, for us, performance is also appreciated, but, the buck really stops at how “wicked,” “trick,” or “sick” a rig looks. This value is amplified almost infinitely when it comes to trucks that are displayed at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, or almost all truck gatherings

2021 Honda Ridgeline Sport: Driven
It’s no secret that we adore Honda’s midsize Ridgeline pickup. There’s a lot to love about the truck—way more than a lot of people give Honda credit for. Sure, the first-generation Ridgeline looked a bit goofy with the large sail panel connecting the cab to the bed (which was the largest one-piece body stamping used

Top 5 Biggest Pickup Trucks
For the better part of two years, pickup trucks have been the “it” vehicles for people interested in buying a new or previously owned ride. With U.S. auto manufacturers scaling back (eliminating) sedans from their lineups, crew-cab shortbed rigs are fast becoming the standard for daily transportation, with some never doing any true truck-type work

Fastest Production Trucks for 2021
Historically, pickups have never been much for speed. Sure, there were performance models like Chevy’s 454 SS, the GMC Syclone, Ram’s SRT-10 1500 Viper truck, and of course Ford’s F-150 Lightning. These trucks would all run from 0 to 60 mph in about 5 seconds. Technology has come a long way since these trucks’ heyday
