PICK-UP TRUCK OF THE YEAR
Where does one begin with the 2004
Ford F-150? Not only did it improve on the package that has proven to be the most
popular automobile of all time, the F-150 has succeeded in becoming, quite simply,
the best pickup ever designed, proving once and for all, that indeed, pickups
are not just for hauling dirt anymore.
that the new F-150 can't be used for that, as evidenced by the two-inch-deeper
bed, which is available in not two, but three bed lengths now, depending on cab.
Also, every F-150 is a four-door truck-even the standard cab, which has small,
rear-hinged access doors to help you get smaller items into the six to 12 inches
of space behind the front seats. Super Cab and Super Crew models post significant
gains for rear seat passengers, both of which offering comfortable seatback angles
and a number of creature comforts such as optional overhead DVD players and more.
are five variants of F-150 to choose from, suitable for all sorts of drivers from
those who never plan to wash their truck to those who'll never let them get dirty.
One thing is for sure, however: they'll all be happy.
With the all-new 2004 Nissan
Titan, the Japanese automaker is jumping in head-first into the last segment of
the automobile market to be dominated by American manufacturers. The truck itself
is big, spacious and seriously powerful, promising to be a very serious contender
in the full-size truck market.
Since trucks can never be too powerful, Dodge decided it
would be fitting to shoehorn the Viper's very own 500-hp V-10 under the hood of
the new Dodge Ram SRT-10. The result is a big, scary truck that truly backs up
its looks with supercar performance. Ironically, it is both easier to live with
and only about half the price of its sports car sibling, making it the performance
bargain of the truck world.
