2019 Ford F-150 Limited – Road Test & Towing Review – By Matt Barnes

With the intense pickup truck wars in full effect right now, manufacturers are offering more luxury and ease-of-use features than ever before. Coming in at the very top of Ford’s F-150 lineup is the new Limited model. Recently, Ford sent us an F-150 Limited for review and we found that there were only six added options. Nearly every other conceivable feature is standard equipment. The Limited model is only available in the Super Crew 5.5 ft. bed configuration. It comes with so many features on the interior that there are few things that can be optioned. On the inside, our …

Why Americans Love Trucks

The United States is known for a lot of great things — barbeque, football, apple pie, bald eagles and Play-Doh, just to name a few. The U.S. is also known for its nearly universal love of pickup trucks. These vehicles are among the most popular in the country. Why are trucks so popular in America?

2017 Ford F-150 RAPTOR 4×4 Supercab – First Drive Review

When Ford gives you Raptor keys, there is an instant rush of blood to the brain.  Me!? Yes!

It is quite an event — even just parked calmly in subtle magnetic grey. What’s the first thing you do with a Raptor?   For me, it is Go find mud!  A rock quarry with greenlight from the dudes working?  YES! …
