2008 Ford Explorer SportTrac Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Ford Explorer SportTrac. When the Ford Explorer Sport Trac made its debut in 2000, it was a new idea. Based on the Explorer midsize SUV, it was a truck, with sport-utility characteristics, four doors, a short cargo bed and features to enhance the active lifestyles of its intended buyers. Since then, similar vehicles have followed, including the Chevrolet Avalanche, Cadillac Escalade EXT, and, more recently, the Honda Ridgeline.
Now in its second generation, the Sport Trac has grown up, both in size and sophistication. Like the original, it continues to offer rear- or four-wheel drive, seating for five and cargo utility. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit http://www.kbb.com today.
Audi R8 Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Audi R8. As a brand, Audi has often stood in the shadow of its German
rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. One way Audi has worked to distinguish itself
from other premium car makers is through innovative design. As impressive
as many of their recent efforts have been, Audi may have created their
finest work to date with the Audi R8.
From a visual standpoint, few cars make a stronger impression than the Audi
R8. Yet, the R8 is more than just a pretty face. Combining an agile
mid-engine layout, quattro all-wheel drive and a surprisingly easy to drive
nature, the R8 isnt just a work of art, its a super car made for everyday
driving. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit

2009 Honda Ridgeline Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT:
2009 Honda Ridgeline. As a brand, Honda has been known to push the
boundaries of automotive engineering. So it is not surprising that a pickup
truck built by the Japanese automaker would be a bit different from other
The American formula for a pickup truck has for a long time favored V8
engines, solid rear axles and a body-on-frame design. In bold contrast, the
Honda Ridgeline features an efficient V6 engine, independent rear
suspension, all-wheel drive and car-like unibody construction. Other
features including a dual-hinged tailgate and in bed storage help the
Ridgeline standout as an enticing alternative for non-traditional truck
buyers. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit
Nissan Maxima Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
2009 Nissan Maxima (For Pricing, Specs, Reviews & More visit
). In its heyday, the Nissan Maxima was king of the sport sedan niche.
Blessed with good looks, sporty handling and a price that put it on par
with more mundane offerings, the Maxima soon gained a loyal following. But
the last two generations of Maxima's didn’t live up to the
“four-door sports car” reputation earned by the original,
growing larger, slower and absent a sporting edge. The newest Maxima hopes
to reverse this trend by returning to the nameplate a unique sense of
styling, a European sport-tuned suspension and an interior fit for an
exotic. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit

Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump
competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a
few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a
system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing
behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck
in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a
button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without
starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter
motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up.
I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called,
but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this
video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline The Ridgeline was designed for the
non-traditional truck buyer to be more efficient, practical, easier to
drive, and comfortable to live with. The good bones are still there but
this truck is in dire need of a redesign. If you are in search of a
smaller, more manageable truck and can deal with a dated cabin and lack of
tech on lower trims, this truck could work for you.
