Three Things To Do when You Collect Your New Pick Up


The pick up is the true workingman’s drive. Versatile, utilitarian, and capable of tackling almost any terrain, it claims an irreplaceable role in the lives of builders, handymen, farmers, gardeners, and outdoorsmen.

Truck sales are booming


With the rebound in the construction industry, we’re starting to see truck sales surge around the country. Ford continues to dominate with the F-150 with sales increasing 31 percent in May, while other brands like Chevy are reporting increased sales as well.

We can expect Ford to continue its sales dominance with products like the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor coming out this fall.

At first, you might just discount the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor as another F-150 trim level offered by Ford. But look a little closer, and you’ll see that there’s more than meets the eye!

The 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor is the first-ever EcoBoost-powered sport truck that addresses the needs of street truck enthusiasts looking for high-performance V8 power with V6 fuel economy.

With both power and fuel economy as selling points the new Tremor should help Ford continue to push sales in this hot truck segment.


Truck sales are strong for Big Three

Ford cites a strong housing market, a stronger economy and pent-up demand as reasons why truck sales have been so strong. Ford is also adding 2,000 jobs to its Kansas City plant in response to this optimism.


2011 Silverado 2500 4WD LTZ Crew Cab Review reviews the 2011 Silverado 2500!

The 2011 Silverado 2500 4WD LTZ Crew Cab makes a great first impression with its muscular exterior. We are happy to report things only got better during our test drive. Chevy made some significant changes to the 2011 Silverado that continue to perfect an already great truck!

The Steel Green Metallic 2011 Silverado 2500 4WD LTZ Crew Cab we drove was an imposing sight with 20-inch forged polished aluminum wheels, 6-inch tubular chromed assist steps, chrome rear bumper and bodyside moldings. For an even sportier look, the LTZ truck included chrome surround grille, cargo box illumination, solar ray deep tinted glass and front fog lamps. The crew cab was well balanced with cab forward design. With all of the chrome updates, the 2011 Silverado 2500 4WD LTZ Crew Cab stands out on the road and commands respect. Heavy duty trucks have come a long way and with the 2500HD LTZ, you can add good looks to the equation.

Gone are the days of bare bones interiors. Trucks now have options to assist us on all of our jobs, like the rear vision camera built into the rearview mirror. Our test model included auto dual-zone air, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power heated black leather bucket seats with memory, OnStar, Bose premium speaker system, USB port and the always handy steering wheel radio controls. The dashboard and control center were clean and classy and had features like XM radio, driver info center display, 12-volt auxiliary power outlet and sharp wood trim. The cabin was spacious and the the center glove box was large and sturdy, with an open storage right under the control center. The handles and knobs were tailor made for workers wearing gloves, but look sharp enough to take your girlfriend or bride out on a nice date.
