    1397501940

    When the best-selling US truck sheds the equivalent weight of three football fullbacks by shifting to aluminum, folks start paying attention. Oak Ridge National Laboratory took a closer look at whether the reduced fuel consumption from a lighter aluminum body makes up for the fact that producing aluminum is far more energy intensive than steel. And the ...

    Report: Ford Explorer, Expedition next to go aluminum?
    1397415600

    Ford made some serious waves when it unveiled the latest F-150. Instead of making its bodywork out of steel, like just about every other truck on the market, Ford went with aluminum. And you can bet the F-150 won't be the last Ford model to go with the lightweight alloy construction, either. Our compatriots at Edmunds report that Dearborn is considering ...

    Official: Ford F-150 King Ranch celebrates 'history and authenticity' for 2015 [w/video]
    1393977600

    What's life like on an authentic Texas ranch? We honestly have no idea, having never lived on such a ranch, but we imagine it requires lots of hard work, grit and determination to keep all 825,000 acres – that's larger than the state of Rhode Island – of the King Ranch in Texas under control. Indeed, a total of 350 vehicles, all of which come ...

    1392768000

    The era of the body-on-frame, fullsize SUV is rapidly vanishing in favor of smaller, unibody crossovers. However, Ford still sees life in the segment with the reveal of the updated 2015 Expedition, now available (solely) with the company's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.

    Report: Next Lincoln Navigator to drop V8 in favor of V6, but Ford Expedition might get both
    1363102080

    A great many buyers fled from full-size body-on-frame SUVs to car-based crossovers in large measure to save fuel. But that doesn't mean there's still not a buying audience for more traditional truck-based utility vehicles, and those consumers doubtlessly wouldn't mind saving some dollars at the pump, too. According to Motor Trend, those shoppers might be ...

But that doesn't mean it can't change. Two businessmen in Mongolia have ordered a matching pair of the six-wheel-drive cargo truck and ...

Richard Hammond went via sled-and-dog-team, which, believe it or not, looked a lot less comfortable than the satnav-equipped Hilux. In what seems like a ...
