Everyone’s Crazy ‘Bout Pick-Up Trucks!

These aren’t your grand-daddy’s pick-ups!  Today’s trucks are fancy enough to drive every day and anywhere while performing like grand-daddy would expect of a work truck.



U.S. News & World Report named the Ram 1500
 the Best Full-Size Truck for the Money for the second year in a row.  


Since its launch as a stand-alone division in 2009, the Ram Truck Brand has steadily emerged as an industry leader, setting the bar in innovation, capability, efficiency and durability along with great looks, a smooth ride, and refined interiors. The long list of best-in-class titles includes America’s most fuel efficient pickup at 29 mpg with the exclusive EcoDiesel. A 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6 is standard, and there are options for a 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or the 240-hp 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 with plenty of grunt for towing, as well as great fuel economy. All are mated to a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission with either rear or four-wheel drive. With multiple trims and special editions, the 1500 lineup pricing ranges from $26K for the Tradesman to over $51K for the Laramie Limited.



The Top-Selling Ford F150 gets more new
technology in the 2016 model: Pro Trailer Backup Assist.

Fully redesigned with an all-aluminum body, the 2015 Ford F-150 offers nimble handling, spacious cabin and powerful turbocharged V6 engine options. The 2015 F-150 has a base 3.5-liter V6 engine, a newly available EcoBoost 2.7-liter or 3.5-liter V6. A 5.0-liter V8 is also optional. With the base engine and rear-wheel drive, the F-150 gets an EPA-estimated 18/25 mpg city/highway. The redesigned 2015 Ford F-150's cabin is constructed with high-quality, soft-touch materials and has super comfortable seats. Ford’s full suite of technology bells and whistles are available for safety, convenience





The Chevy Silverado High Country has heated and cooled
 leather-appointed bucket seats, with contrast stitching
 and 12-way power adjustments, 
including four-way power lumbar.
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 boasts a mix of high-strength steel and aluminum construction used to design a compelling truck with a quiet cabin and a nice ride even with the bed fully loaded. The base V6 engine provides sufficient power and 18/24 mpg, and there’s the 5.3-liter V8 if you need more power with quicker acceleration. Either of these come with 6-speed automatic transmission. A larger 6.2-liter V8 with 8-speed automatic is also available, and with it, the Silverado can achieve its 12,000-pound maximum tow rating. The Chevy trucks are loaded with the same conveniences and options you would expect of a luxury sedan, even 4G LTE WiFi. Pricing starts just north of $29K up to the $58K range for the top of the line High Country. Also check out its sister GMC Sierra sharing many of the same stylistic hallmarks.

The relationship between Nissan
 and Cummins, Inc., 
has played a pivotal role in bringing
 the 2016 TITAN XD to life.
Nissan is counting on some truck buyers making the switch over to Nissan for the first time ever this year. The second generation 2016 Nissan Titan is finally here and its big news is a deal with Cummins to utilize its new 5.0-liter V-8 turbo-diesel with 310 hp and 555 lbs-torque. Both the engine and truck are being built here in the states.
