2013 Ford F-150 Raptor SVT Supercab pickup truck - Offroading video
Ford wasn't expecting to sell many copies of the F-150 SVT Raptor when the
souped-up pickup was introduced for the 2010 model year, but the truck's
combination of off-road ability and reasonable on-road manners have made it
a surprise hit. More than 28,000 have been sold. Autoweek road test editor
Jonathan Wong takes us underneath the 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor to show us
what sets it apart from the basic F-150 -- then runs it through a rugged
off-road course to demonstrate its all-terrain chops.

Lamborghini stops selling cars in Iran - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
As if living under brutally oppressive theocratic regime wasn't bad enough,
now Iranians won't be able to buy Lamborghinis. Bowing to pressure from an
organization called "United against a Nuclear Iran," Lamborghini will stop
selling cars in the Islamic Republic.
Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon has led to some tough sanctions, but
many analysts expect that the weapons program will now be abandoned in
order to restore the flow of Aventadors into Tehran.
BMW is pressing ahead with a plan to build a car to correspond to every
digit. Early this week at the Detroit auto show, they showed off a new
4-Series, which is of course, a coupe version of the three series. Rumor
has it that the Bavarians are working on a 9-Series, which will be a
6-wheeled garbage truck. An unnamed BMW executive was quoted as saying, "We
would not develop anything less than the most sporting, dynamic multi-ton
Details on the M6 Gran Coupe, 4-series coupe debut at Detroit auto show:
And finally, if you guessed that Sergio Marchionne was the auto-exec that
dropped an ethnic slur during the Detroit auto show, you'd be correct. In
explaining why the Alfa 4C would be delayed, Marchionne said, "With all due
respect to my American friends, it needs to be a Wop engine," That was
followed by a few moments of silent discomfort by the assembled press

pickup trucks have been a staple for America's workforce. But in recent
years, trucks have evolved more into lifestyle vehicles. These Top 10
Trucks are the perfect balance between utility and everyday needs. Today
the best trucks have more features and are more comfortable than many cars
on the road. This echo's the notion that a pickup truck can appeal to a
wide range of people, not just those wearing a tool belt.
10) Chevrolet Colorado
If you desire a compact American pickup truck your options are limited.
Thankfully Chevy makes just such a truck called the Colorado. This durable
and reliable little truck has built up a solid reputation over the past
couple of years resulting in it pick as a best pickup.

truck that is inexpensive to buy and inexpensive to own. The Frontier
pickup truck offers multiple configurations to suit your cargo and
8) Toyota Tacoma http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tacoma/?id=32972
Sometimes overshadowed by the Tundra, the Toyota Tacoma is the vehicle that
put Japan on the map as far as pickup trucks go. The Tacoma is a Top 10
truck because it's built on a very solid foundation.
7) Nissan Titan http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/titan/?id=32972
Nissan was the first company to incorporate a 300 horsepower engine into their
pickups. The V-8 Titan is the largest truck you can buy from Nissan and
this pickup proves to be a very solid choice making this list of Top 10.
6) RAM 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/ram/1500/?id=32972
For many years the RAM was the ugly step child to Ford and Chevy trucks.
But over the last few years, Dodge has been paying close attention to just
how owners use their pickups. Now the RAM is one of the most versatile and
functional trucks on the market. This Best Truck choice is so popular that
the Chrysler Group has made the RAM division into its own brand.
5) GMC Sierra 1500
GMC has done an excellent job of distinguishing itself from Chevy by
labeling their trucks "professional grade." Perception has become reality
and today the GMC Sierra is seen as a high end truck to most consumers. The
GMC Sierra is one of the Best Trucks you can buy.
4) Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The Battle between Ford and Chevy remains strong and is most prevalent in
the war for Best Pickup Truck. While Ford may have an edge due to the newer
body style, for some owners it's still Chevrolet or nothing. Despite its
age the Chevy Silverado 1500 still remains both a workhorse and a good
3) GMC Sierra 2500HD
The HD designation stands for Heavy Duty and the GMC Sierra 2500HD is as
tough as they come. Whether you opt for the turbo-diesel engine of the gasoline powered motor;
the Sierra in HD format is all about towing and hauling. This is the truck
for those who are serious about pickups. The Sierra HD is one of the
toughest trucks on this Top 10 list.
2) Toyota Tundra http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tundra/?id=32972
If there is one word to describe Toyota's commitment to making the best
pickup truck in America: it's relentless. Toyota knew that in order to
compete with the big 3, it needed to not only build a great truck, but they
needed to build it here on American soil. Built in San Antonio Texas, the
Tundra offers the perfect balance between drivability and capability.
1) Ford F-150 EcoBoost
Ford's EcoBoost engine technology
consists of direct injection and twin-turbochargers have proven effective in the line-up
of cars, and now we find this engine making its way onto more F-150 trucks.
Essentially this engine gives you V-8 power combined with the fuel economy
of a V-6. This EcoBoost engine out
powers many V-8 engines on the market with 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of
torque while still getting the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid full
sized pickup truck. On top of all that great technology, the Ford F-150
looks great. The exterior styling and wonderful interior hits the mark
making this pickup our pick for the Top Truck in America.
