Whether you’re hauling a cement mixer, a three-horse trailer, or a sparkling new speedboat, you won’t find a more useful tool than a pickup truck. Full-size trucks are the best-selling vehicles in America, partly because of the many Americans who work hard at jobs that require sweat and muscle rather than pixels and taps, and partly because Americans love to play hard. Or at least look like they do. Right now, there are plenty of terrific choices when it comes to big pickup trucks. The best models come from the traditional Big Three American companies, such as the popular Ford F-150 and redesigned Ram 1500, with Japanese companies trailing the leaders with the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra. Truck drivers are a notoriously loyal lot. They tend to choose a brand and stick with it, despite the lure of newfangled aluminum this and hybrid that. Chevrolet is counting on people who love the bowtie-brand to ensure the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500’s success, while angling to … [Read more...] about Ratings and Review: The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a great truck.

More details are emerging on the refreshed 2019 Porsche Macan, an SUV for which updates were first announced in the summer. Porsche shared details Monday on the Macan S, a variant that slots between the base Macan and all but certainly a few high-performance editions to follow. Not that the Macan S is low-performance, with a new turbocharged V-6 that increases power for 2019. Related: Macan You Hear Me Now? 8 Reasons to Want Porsche's Updated 2019 SUV Output is now 348 horsepower and 354 pounds-feet of torque, up 8 hp and 15 pounds-feet versus the outgoing turbo V-6 (340 hp, 339 pounds-feet). Displacement remains the same 3.0 liters, but Porsche fitted a new single, centrally mounted twin-scroll turbocharger rather than the prior twin-turbo setup — underlining why effectiveness, not sheer quantity, matters most for turbochargers. Porsche says the SUV hits 60 mph in as little as 4.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package, a tenth of a second quicker than the previous Macan S. … [Read more...] about S, Please!

A sport utility from Ford is the best-selling cop car in America, and now it is the best accelerating and fastest police vehicle in America, according to preliminary test data from the Michigan State Police. This year, Ford bested all entries, including V8-equipped sedans, with its EcoBoost®-powered all-wheel-drive version of the all-new 2020 Police Interceptor Utility, posting fastest 0-60 mph and 0-100 mph times, as well as fastest lap and fastest average lap. The standard hybrid 2020 Police Interceptor Utility also beat all competitive SUV entries, including V8-equipped models, with the fastest 0-100 mph, fastest lap and fastest average lap – making good on Ford’s promise to deliver a hybrid Police Interceptor that outperforms today’s 3.7-liter V6 model with all-wheel drive. Stephen Tyler, police brand marketing manager for Ford, says America’s law enforcement agencies previously have had to choose either fuel efficiency or all-out performance, but the … [Read more...] about Ford Reveals Fastest Police Vehicle In America @ Top Speed
opinion David Shribman Published 3:08 p.m. UTC Aug 16, 2018 PORTSMOUTH, N.H.—The scene here in this old colonial Atlantic seaport is deceptively pacific. The sun shimmers off the sea, the fishing boats pass quietly. But the talk here over a leisurely lunch, harvested from the cool blue waters below, is anything but tranquil. The topics are Donald Trump, the midterm congressional elections, and how little—or how much—a Republican House candidate should identify himself with the president. Add to the savory menu this supplemental, succulent element: The conversation is being held in a relatively balanced district that Trump carried by only two percentage points in 2016 and that now is represented by a Democratic legislator who won her seat by a single percentage point but isn’t seeking another term. This just might be the very best opportunity in the nation for a Republican candidate to flip a seat from the Democrats in contravention of historical … [Read more...] about Opinion: Republican win in New Hampshire could signal success
