I’ve had the rare pleasure of spending quite a few miles behind the wheel of both the 2015 F-150 and the 2015 Silverado. While we’re heading right into model year 2016, both models are staying quite similar even though the 2016 Silverado will have a retouched front grille and other mild changes.I was able to test out the 2015 F-150 at the press event they hosted in Texas, … [Read more…]

Since the Ford F-150 was all new for the 2015 model year, there are only a few changes from that year to 2016. One of those changes involves an all-new trim level, called Limited. Basically, a Limited is a fully-loaded Platinum model without having to check all the option boxes. We recently had a chance to spend a little time behind the wheel, and here’s what we thought.A … [Read more…]

For the 2015 model year, if you wanted to have a top-of-the-line, luxury pickup truck from Ford you’d have to choose the F-150 Platinum. I recently spent a week in one for another site (review coming here soon), and I enjoyed the amount of technology and luxury that the truck had to offer. It’s hard to imagine they’d go higher, but they did. For 2016, you’ll now be able to … [Read more…]

Now that we are approaching the end of the year, it’s time to take stock in the happenings of the past 12 months. The key to this site’s ongoing success is the support from you, the reader. This past year, we had an opportunity to drive a decent number of new automobiles and we shared our impressions across the site. But which ones did you read the most? Here’s a countdown of … [Read more…]

At this year’s Texas Truck Rodeo, Kristin and I harassed the folks at Ford about when we’ll see a new Ford Raptor. High off their win as the Truck of Texas, we figured we’d get some information out of them. With a grin, we received the official “we don’t comment on product plans.” But if you look at Raptor sales data, you’d know that it’d be crazy for Ford to not make a new … [Read more…]

Earlier today, we talked about the EPA fuel economy of the 2.7L EcoBoost in the 2015 Ford F-150 versus the economy in the 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. One of the key points we made, and have made since the Ford’s debut, is that we don’t really have real-world fuel economy numbers. On the original media drive that we attended, we were in a pre-production truck. That means they could … [Read more…]
