On a new option added to the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado is the transmission brake which gears the transmission down on a steep grade while towing a heavy load. This option is only offered through Chevrolet. As of right now it is not available on Ford’s. The 2011 Ford F150 is the heaviest truck of this year’s half ton family. It weighed about 6000 pounds. The truck comes equipped with Ford’s 5.4L Triton V8. The truck was the slowest of the new half-ton trucks because of its large mass. The new F150 was least classified to pull a fifth wheel camper or other large trailers even though it has best in class towing. Although it seems as if it is not meant for towing heavy loads, the exterior and interior is attractive thanks to its chrome accents, but that doesn’t matter when you are getting around 13 miles per gallon.
Dodge, Ford, they are both good trucks but there is a lot of people out there who want to know which one is better. My personal choice is Dodge but this isn’t just about opinions. What is really matters is the specs and how durable they both really are. Many people may not know this but the Ford company used to be joined by the Dodge brothers when making the first vehicles. Later on they got into a dilemma and split off to make their own company. So did they prevail over Henry Ford? Lets find out.

I own a 1979 F150 XLT Ranger. Before the Ranger became a compact truck, it was full size. Mine happens to be 4 wheel drive. I love it. I have been the proud owner for 15 years. I will never sell it. It is too easy to keep runnin'. Parts are affordable, and it is EASY to work on. Any of you who own and older Ford truck know what I'm talking about. So here is my tribute lens to the Ford truck.
Marketers of the F-150 truck line traditionally target the construction industry with heavy towing capabilities and large carrying capacities. In January of 2015, “Ford starts most comprehensive truck marketing campaign to introduce the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever” (Ford Motor Company, 2014). Marketers again target the working class men who depend on reliability, durability, and capability. Ford bombards the television ads, radio talk shows, consumer websites, print ads, and Hispanic sports competitions with information promising toughness. On the first day of the campaign, Ford placed three television commercials during a nationally televised college playoff football game showcasing the 2016 F-150. The first commercial, forward march, introduced the F-150 as being tougher, smarter, and more capable than the competition. The second advertisement, what’s next, concentrated on innovations such as a remote releasing tailgate, LED lighting, and a three hundred sixty degree exterior camera. The third commercial, move it, let consumers know that the 2015 F-150 has the best-in-class, six ton capacity payload (Ford Motor Company, 2014). The official Ford website has various videos informing the consumer on various topics including: road handling, an aluminum body that reduces the truck weight by seven hundred pounds, six ton load capacity, back up turning knob control and camera, safety, fuel efficiency, strength, and innovation (2014).
Conventional wisdom was that diesel was the only way to deliver significant fuel economy improvements in trucks. However, the growing emergence of direct-injected and turbocharged gasoline engines have made the fuel economy difference between gas and diesel engines much smaller than before. Seredynski said that regardless of fuel, the end goal is the same: maximum power from the minimum amount of fuel. The Ram 1500 Eco Diesel is the current full size pickup mileage champ at 20/28 mpg in EPA testing, but Ford's new 2.7L Eco Boost V-6 gas engine is likely not be far behind. Another enabling technology that has increased economy on both gas and diesel engines are transmissions with much higher gear counts, with six speeds now considered the

I've always had this love for huge trucks. And my favorite line so far? Kenworth, perhaps. That's why when a friend asked me if I can make one more review of another used Kenworth vehicle, I immediately said 'sure'.
Growing up on a horse farm we always had trucks, or friends with trucks. My family just always fell to the Ford F250 or F350s for the performance they deliver. When we moved back to South Carolina I couldn’t wait for horse shows . . . Jacked up Ford’s towing gorgeous
