The timing couldn’t have been better. My riding buddies and I had been invited to attend an equitation clinic about an hour away, and as luck would have it, my test drive of the Chevrolet Silverado had been rescheduled for that very week. Hauling 3,000 lb of restless, shuffling horseflesh would be as thorough an evaluation of the truck’s towing pro
JACKSON HOLE, Wyoming – Our ascent up the Teton Mountains has been gradual. A gentle climb meandering back and forth across the Wyoming–Idaho border. From this height, the valley floor is a patchwork quilt, its hayfields dotted with tiny, golden spools.
The 6.2L V8 is monstrously strong, responding instantly when the accelerator’s pressed, ye
Brace yourselves, Ram haters, because this review is going to come off like a commercial.
The Ram 1500 was already a very good truck. But the 2019 version? This is a great truck.
I spent two weeks and more than 4,000 km in the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited , towing a trailer to boot, on my family’s recent road trip to the Saguenay fjord and
The Canadian auto market is just a sliver compared to how many vehicles Americans buy, but there are times when we can still throw our weight around. The monochromatic 2019 Ram 1500 Sport wasn’t part of the schedule at Michigan’s Sterling Heights plant, where the all-new 2019 truck is being built, until the folks at FCA Canada raised the roof.
Thanks to revisions and improvements for model-year 2018, drivers of the latest Ford F-150 can bask smugly in the top-dog status of their machines at the jobsite or boat launch – thanks to the achievement of the segment’s highest towing capacity, payload capacity, and the most torque available in any competitive gas- or diesel-burning pickup.
The pickup truck business is a tough gig. Not only do truck buyers tend to be fiercely loyal to a brand, but there are a lot of them out there, so the competition for market share is intense. Ford’s F-Series trucks – you may have heard of them? – they sell nearly a million units a year in the US and Canada combined. GM’s not far behind if you bunch
The more I drive trucks, the more I like the things. Maybe I’m getting old, maybe I’ve been exposed to too many manly marketing campaigns, but driving a truck is just plain fun for me.
Titan sales are up a whopping 217 percent year on year
I even have a truck song, that I play in my mind whenever I’m driving one, and occasionally si
Nissan has finally updated the Titan! Yes, last year they launched the Titan XD but it cannot be considered a direct successor to the first-generation Titan as it is more of a three-quarter-ton truck than a half-ton.
The 2017 Nissan Titan is a true second-generation Titan and Nissan hopes to capture more of the market with this second kick at
1794. A commission is established to settle Canada/US border disputes. Eli Whitney patents the cotton gin. The Oban distillery is built. American industrialist Cornelius Vanderbilt is born. And in the southern part of Texas, Col. Juan Ignacio Perez de Casanova was granted some land.
The Tundra takes the unfortunate title of being the oldest
Toyota is adding a new trim level to the Tundra for 2018. The full-size Toyota pickup gets more safety tech and a revised exterior design as well.
That means a new grille and headlight design along with LED running lights. They aren't big changes, but there are some more substantial changes on the inside.
The first is the addition of Toyota's
Few surprises in 2015 Canadian vehicle searches… except for one region.
Ever wonder what other people are looking for on autoTRADER.ca? Looking back at our post for 2014 , you'll find a list of bread-and-butter commuters and hardworking pickups. Sensible Canadian sensibilities at play here, clearly. And it's the same story in 2015 – the Overal
The recent release of the most searched vehicles for 2016 on autoTRADER.ca told the broad story of which vehicles are most popular online across Canada, either for purchasing now, or daydreaming about one day.
But there’s also much to learn about Canadians’ desire for any automobile by digging deeper into who searched for what the most in each
Chevrolet wants you to know who's got the biggest beds of them all. They're so proud of the 2019 Silverado's new pickup box that they've even given it a name.
With the new for 2019 Silverado 1500, bed sizes are getting bigger. The standard bed is up 283 litres to 2,039 L of total space beneath the rails. Short and long-box trucks are up too. The
Head Lake, ON – Huddling around the warmth of a crackling steel drum, I can't help but think, that in our down vests, red check flannels and ball caps, we look more inclined to wreak havoc upon the local deer population than to evaluate trucks.
But together, we make up the judging panel for the 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge. Although this e
On a chilly morning, the Nissan Titan XD’s Cummins Turbodiesel V8 fires up after a few slightly laborious cranks which suggest something big is about to awaken. Ignition is achieved promptly after a little glow-plug warming and engine cranking, before charming diesel sound effects and vibrations move through the Titan’s body and cabin. Then, the en
