2010 Ram Power Wagon Off-Road Review
PickupTrucks.com takes the new 2010 Ram Power Wagon to Johnson Valley in Southern California for a rock crawling and wheeling adventure in this very capable off-road rig. Also, check out our full off-road test of the Power Wagon at PickupTrucks.com.
Offroad Obstacle Course
As part of the 2008 PickupTrucks.com Half-Ton Shootout, PickupTrucks.com put six half-ton pickups from Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Nissan and Toyota through an offroad obstacle course that included a gravel pit, a 46.6 percent dirt-hill climb and descent, and a telephone pole crawl.

Big Trucks Duke it Out: Full Size Pickup Comparison
MORE FULL SIZE TRUCK COMPARO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
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.
► 2011 Chevy Silverado HD Frame Strength Test
Chevrolet takes the heavy-duty pickup battle to the test track -- and the mountain roads -- in "HD to HD," a video series that pits 2011 Silverado HD pickups against the competition in real-world tests of capabilities that matter to real-world truck buyers.
The tests include acceleration, passing, and braking tests, all conducted with a loaded bed, or in some cases, a loaded trailer. Other tests measure the effectiveness of the Exhaust brakes on long downgrades and the stiffness of the frames during twist-ditch simulations. Competitors were diesel-powered 2011 Ford Super Duties, and in some tests, 2011 Dodge Ram HDs.
Dodge Truck Rescue
According to the owner, the truck was parked on the boat ramp and slipped out of gear. It rolled down the ramp into the Barren River and floated about 100 to 200 yards down river before sinking in about 15 foot of water. It was found with all four tires down.
Diesel-Powered Throwdown! 2011 Ford Super Duty vs 2010 Ram HD
We pit the all new 2011 Ford Super Duty against our reigning Truck of the Year, the 2010 Ram Heavy Duty to figure out which one is truly the king of the heavy haulers.
