The 2016 Nissan Frontier Pickup Review: Nissan has sold pickup trucks in the U.S. for decades. Many years ago, as Datsun, it introduced little trucks for a different purpose than the full-size models. The Frontier is a descendant of those diminutive haulers, although it’s only small in comparison to the company’s full-size and appropriately named Titan.
Like other pickups, the Frontier gives you lots of choices, starting with the trim level. Nissan offers five, from the basic S through SV, PRO-4X, Desert Runner, and SL. The S is barebones, the Pro-4X is the four-wheel-drive off road specialist, the Desert Runner is a two-wheel-drive model with the larger engine only, the SV is the midrange choice that suits most buyers, and the SL is the luxury version.

The 2016 Tacoma 4x4 TRD Double Cab Review: Until last year, mid-size trucks were the red-headed stepchildren of the automotive world. Most of them were completely neglected, going without major updates for a decade or more as their big, pricey, full-size siblings got all the attention. That changed with the introduction of the Chevy Colorado a year ago. Along with its twin from GMC, the Canyon, it was such a leap above the competition that Motor Trend named it “Truck of the Year,” snubbing the ground breaking Ford F-150 that normally would have been a shoo-in for the prize. Now Toyota has gone and made that “Truck of the Year” Colorado look like ancient history.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4x4 Review: The Nissan Titan XD is the first of several new Titans to hit the market. Powered by a Cummins diesel engine, it is designed to offer more capability than a light-duty truck. The Platinum Reserve trim level, shown here, is Nissan’s new entry in the fast-growing luxury truck segment. To hear Nissan describe their latest and greatest pickup, the Titan XD, you’d think it’s the Goldilocks of trucks: nothing less and nothing more than you need.

The 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali 4WD Review: If you’ve got to work hard, why not do it in the lap of luxury? The ethos of fancy corporate suites is hitting the world of pickup trucks in a big way as manufacturers explore the upper limits of pricing and equipping their luxury pickups this year. It’s a strange combination, mixing the muddy, gritty, Paul Bunyan toughness of a heavy-duty truck with the highbrow sophistication of leather, wood and every imaginable gadget, and I don’t blame people for wanting it.
And one of the nicest ways to work hard is in this truck, the GMC Sierra HD Denali.

The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Review: Diesel engines and pickup trucks go together like peanut butter and jelly, but manufacturers have been surprisingly reluctant to put diesels in their light-duty trucks. And it's not because there's no demand.

The 2014 GMC Sierra Denali Review: Pickup trucks are a big profit center for General Motors, so when they redesigned the GMC Sierra, they were careful not to change it too much. The 2014 model really is all brand new, but you will still recognize it, at the job site, and in your neighbor’s driveway, as a GMC pickup truck. And you can choose from Standard Cab, Double Cab or Crew Cab.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review: You would think the novelty of driving a new truck would wear off eventually, but that doesn’t happen for me. Every time I drive a pickup, I’m blown away by just how far these machines have evolved.  When I was a young child, my idea of pickups was molded by my grandpa’s old, white, rickety truck that was barely one step removed from a bulldozer on the automotive ladder.

The 2013 Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab Review: It's interesting that the Ram has gone from being one of the truckiest trucks, with big-rig styling, high fuel consumption and a rough-and-tumble ride to one of the most car-like in recent years. The makeover started two years ago when the Ram 1500 dumped its old leaf-spring rear suspension in favor of a more up-to-date design, something that gave it a smoother, more controlled ride than most pickups. But this year, Ram is taking refinement to an extreme.

The 2013 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 Review: In the testosterone-fueled wars between pickup trucks, one thing matters above all else: raw numbers. It's interesting, then, that until this year there has been no standardized way of measuring how many pounds different pickup trucks can tow. Each brand would brag about its maximum towing capability as if it were the one and only truck that could possibly have enough gumption to haul a bass boat, but each company also set its own criteria for how to measure that magic number.

The 2012 Ram 1500 Lone Star Crew Cab 4x4 Review:  Pickups are built to do the jobs that are too tough, or dirty for ordinary cars, and the big Ram 1500 is the perfect example. It's incredibly useful for making your life fuller and, in some cases, just more fun.

2011 Silverado HD Review: Heavy-duty trucks are all about numbers. There's also that deep job-site rumble and chiseled cowboy styling to like, but at their heart, the biggest trucks boil down to simple arithmetic. How much can they tow? What's the payload capacity? How much horsepower and torque do they make?

RAM 3500 Review: Today's automotive landscape is a weird place. Just look at the most popular kind of vehicles being introduced as 2011 models. They're all crazy combinations of things that aren't meant to go together: crossover vehicles that try to be sports cars, four-door sedans that look like two-door coupes, and hybrid cars that can't decide whether they want to run on gasoline or electricity. But the weirdest of all? Heavy-duty trucks that try to be luxury cars.

 '99 Silverado & Sierra Pickup Trucks

San Francisco:  General Motors was the last of the Old Big Three to redo its full-sized pickups. The new Dodge Ram appeared in 1995 and the new Ford 150 was introduced for 1997. Unlike the Ram's bold "over-the-road" look and the F-150's aerodynamic styling, GM's stylists took a more conservation approach. The restyling of the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks is more evolutionary than revolutionary. GM says pickups don't need "leading-edge" designs, since consumers surveys put lower priority on styling than durability and engine power. It cannot afford to make a mistake, since pickups are GM's biggest seller, producing more pickups than Buicks and Oldsmobiles combined.
