Big Trucks Duke it Out: Full Size Pickup Comparison

MORE FULL SIZE TRUCK COMPARO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=147067?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* We see it every Friday during our evening commute. A stream of vehicles choking the freeway, headed out to the Mojave Desert or the Colorado River for some well-earned weekend stress relief. The fun varies, from camping to dirt-bike riding to water-skiing. But the vehicle that invariably gets tasked with hauling the corresponding equipment is a full-size pickup truck. You know, like the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, 2009 Ford F-150 or 2009 Toyota Tundra. Sure, we talk about the virtues of the minivan as a family hauler, and there are many. But the minivan stands no chance against a looming 25-foot camping trailer. And SUVs are easily flummoxed by motocross bikes and the need to carry their smelly gas cans (or anything that's remotely dirty, actually) in the vehicle's cargo area. There's nothing like a pickup, with its big bin in back that doesn't care what you toss into it. And the truck is sure to be around long after the full-frame SUV falls completely out of favor and descends into the three-row car-based sensibility that is the crossover.

Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=143967 Opens Friday, April 3!!! In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes. In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts; and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible. Using documentation from the production's picture car department and in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and trucks of Fast & Furious.

2014 Nissan Titan takes on Ford, Chevy & the Ike Gauntlet 2.0 Mega Tow Test (Episode 1)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) What half ton pickup truck is the towing king of the world? This time we've upped the ante and we go all in with 10,000 pounds of pain. Is it the Ford F-150 or the Nissan Titan or the new Chevy Silverado 6.2L. Today on The Fast Lane Truck we put these three of these trucks to the test as they take on the Ike Gauntlet 2.0. In Episode 1 we start with the oldest truck of the group....The 2014 Nissan Titan. The Ike Gauntlet is a timed run up one of America's steepest highways from 9,000 feet above sea level to the top of the mountain at entrance to the Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado.

2014 Toyota Tundra takes on Ram 1500 & the Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Episode 4 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow. But is it better than the Ram 1500 We decided to find out by putting both pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup Sequel. Once again both trucks tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel? In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,600 pounds. That's enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow around 7,200 pounds of old American Luxury car plus people and gear 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).

2013 Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado 0-60 MPH Mashup Test & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ram 1500 Pick-up ( you may remember it as a Dodge) is virtually all new. OK, the HEMI engine option remains but same as the new Ram 1500 is now available with the Chrysler Pentastar V-6 engine and a HEMI V-8. But for 2013 the Ram also gets a new and class first 8 speed transmission, and optional self-leveling air suspension and (according to Ram) best in class fuel economy. Of course we wanted to know know just how fast the new Ram 1500 is to 60 MPH and perhaps more importantly how it competes with the best selling vehicle in America...the Ford F-150. We also wanted to know how it stacks up against the Chevy Silverado. If you are curious as well, watch this exclusive TFLcar mashup review as we test and review all three classic American pick-up trucks and see which one is fastest to 60 MPH.
