Ford's All-Electric F-150 Has A Name: Lightning Is Back!
Ford has been teasing its battery-electric F-150 pickup for several years now (remember the train towing stunt?) and as of today we finally have a name and release date.

The Best 3/4-Ton Pickup Trucks: Towing, Payload, Power, and More
Calling anything the “best” is a big claim, one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. With that in mind, we’ve taken care to pull together a list of not the best overall 3/4-ton trucks, but rather which trucks are the best in each of six categories. These claims are not subjective; instead, they are based on

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

As a follow-up to our recent article on lifted-truck problems, we continue our discussion about pickups’ stance with a look at the other popular height adjustment: lowering.

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
