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

We Tow an Airstream Basecamp With a 707-Horsepower Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
It’s no secret that one of our favorite vehicles of all time is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. And that love turned straight to lust in 2018 when Jeep dropped the insane 707-hp Trackhawk version of its five-passenger family hauler on us. Stuffed with the same supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine as the Dodge Charger and

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

PHOTOS: 3,000-HP Dodge Truck Explodes During Dyno Pull
Attendees at Edge Products’ Weekend on the Edge 2020 event in Ogden, Utah, witnessed one of the gnarliest dyno catastrophes in recent history. In its quest to reach a mind-boggling 3,000 hp on the dyno, the truck affectionately known as Master Shredder succumbed to too much NOS (and to Satan) and literally flung its Cummins

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

We Drive The Jeep Wrangler 392 Concept
The one complaint we always hear about the Jeep Wrangler is the lack of power. In fact, power was such a concern for owners that a cottage industry of aftermarket companies popped up to swap diesels and V-8s into Wranglers. Even Jeep has seemingly acknowledged the issue by going from one engine choice in the

2020 Jeep Gladiator Is Impressive, Even When You Just Stay On The Road
By now we’re all pretty familiar with Jeep’s newest entry into the midsize pickup space. We’ve driven, tested, and reviewed nearly all of the different varieties of 2020 Gladiator, including the Sport S with the max tow package, the rock crushing Rubicon, and the desert dominating Mojave. What we hadn’t done, however, was get behind

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

Chevy 1500HD: The First 1500 Silverado Crew Cab Was Weird but Cool

Remembering Sport Truck Magazine: 1988-2009
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 11 years since Sport Truck magazine closed shop.

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)
