To ensure that its new 2014 Ford Transit will be able to get the job done when it goes on sale in the US next year, Ford announced that its new work van will be offered with a diesel engine that balances power and fuel economy.

The pending replacement of Chevrolet's full-size pickup for 2007 has been well-documented with a few million grainy spy shots, but this is the first time we can recall seeing the new-for-2008 Silverado HD out and about. And while most of the KGP Photography captured mule is done up in industry-standard Hefty Bag school of camouflage, it's possible to divine a couple of things: With an 8' bed, it's a predictably lengthy son-of-a-gun. And two, under its hastily-assembled cover, it doesn't ap
