First Drive Review: The 2019 Ford Ranger plays to win the game

by Thingz 2 Do In
Editor’s Note: This review originally appeared on our sister site Hard Working Trucks. A deep blue Florida sky, cool weather (hey, it was morning still) and a brand new 2019 Ford Ranger FX4 Lariat. Not a bad way to start the day in Cape Coral, Florida. We had made the 500-mile drive from hurricane-battered Panama City in the Panhandle to this area of Florida where the canals might outnumber the streets. There are roughly 300 miles of canals here making it the city with the most navigable canals in the world. And with all these canals come plenty of boats […]

Chevy unveils redesigned 2020 Silverado HD

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Eight months after teasing the new look, Chevrolet has unveiled its redesign of the Silverado HD. Apart from the very loud ‘CHEVROLET’ word mark stamped into the center crossbeam of the grille, the most prominent feature of this redesign is just how tall the nose of this new truck looks. The influence of the 2019 Silverado 1500 is very apparent now that we’ve got a good look at the headlamps and a 3/4 angle of the truck. It somehow achieves a look that is both boxy and curvy at the same time. I’m not sure that’s […]

Jeep unveils long-awaited Gladiator: “Most capable midsize pickup ever”

by Thingz 2 Do In
Considering its name and the crowd, the LA Coliseum would have been a better venue for the unveiling of Jeep’s 2020 Gladiator. Okay, maybe that’s too big, but nonetheless it was packed to standing room only inside the North Plaza tent at the LA Auto Show where after a nearly 30-year hiatus Jeep rolled out its new pickups. Yes, there’s more than one Gladiator because Jeep went big–really big when it came to taking on the growing and highly competitive midsize truck segment. “This is the all new Jeep Gladiator Rubicon,” Tim Kuniskis, head of Jeep, said when revealing one […]

Honda unveils a Ridgeline x UTV mash-up at SEMA called the Open Air Concept Vehicle

Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle Concept for 2018 SEMA Show. Photo: Honda While the Honda Ridgeline may not exactly evoke scenes of gravity-defying jumps and gag-inducing dirt plumes, the automaker’s off-road build revealed at this week’s SEMA show in Las Vegas certainly looks like it’s on its way to earning a dirty pedigree that would make any truck maker proud. Created as an attempt to dream up what “the ultimate off-road Honda four-wheeled vehicle could look like,” rugged Open Air Vehicle concept is an impressive marriage between the Ridgeline pickup and Honda’s Pioneer 1000 side-by-side. While the Rugged Open Air […]

Cummins recalls record 500k trucks, engines due to faulty emissions device

by Thingz 2 Do In
International switched to Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engines to power its DuraStar medium-duty trucks in 2013. Calling it the largest voluntary recall of medium- and heavy-duty trucks in history, the EPA announced Tuesday that some half-a-million Cummins diesel engines and trucks powered by those engines have a defective part that causes excessive emissions of nitrogen oxides or NOx. The EPA noted: “The problem Cummins is acting to correct is the result of a defective part and does not involve a defeat device.” The problem was discovered through government oversight programs that test vehicles for emissions compliance throughout their lives. The recalled […]
