We’re sold on the looks and stats of the new 2022 Nissan Frontier, a truck that’s been long overdue for a full-scale update.

Ford Raptor Towing Capacity by Generation
It’s no secret that Ford’s F-150 Raptor’s power lies in its desert racing inspired suspension and not in its towing ability. That’s not to say that the Raptor isn’t a competent tow rig, rather that Ford has been required by the standards to which they test towing ability to rate the Raptor lower than its

What Was Your First 4x4 Mod?
Recently I was sauntering through a parking lot trying to remember where I parked my truck, and I passed a seemingly nondescript, late-model Silverado Crew Cab pickup. It appeared to be bone stock except for one thing. As I walked past it and glanced at the front end, I saw a winch mounted to the

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor: First Look
Ford rocked the pickup world in 2009 when it first introduced the go-fast desert-oriented F-150 Raptor. The truck’s big tires, big shocks, bulging body, and bad-boy attitude made the truck an instant hit. And it’s only gotten more popular and more capable from there. Now, for 2021 and in its third-generation, Ford has pulled back

Can a Ram Power Wagon Suspension Beat a Ford Raptor?

Trucks with the Best MPG
Talking about the “best” of anything can lead to quite the slippery slope. Thankfully, fuel economy is a rather straightforward subject thanks largely to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
