For a long while, if you wanted a diesel-powered pickup truck you had to move beyond the half-ton segment and into something much bigger. But that’s changed as the key players have given diesel a shot in their volume models. And now for its second act, Ram’s EcoDiesel is more powerful and fuel efficient. So if you’re a high mileage driver predominantly spending time on the highway the EcoDiesel would be a viable option. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-ram-1500-limited-ecodiesel/
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Red S Edition First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
The ‘S’ can now be colored red at Chrysler. The best minivan on the market has just received an infusion of Dodge attitude. While Toyota claims they have the “swagger wagon” this new for 2020 Pacifica Red S Edition is clearly the winner with soccer dads and kids alike. The S Appearance Package introduced 3 years ago is an option chosen by one out of every three Pacifica owners but Red S is like sneaking into Spencer’s without your parents. For $3,995 it features Rodèo Red soft Nappa leather two-tone seats accented by Light Diesel Grey stitching and piping and a “S” logo on the seatbacks. Silver Metal Brush trim dresses up the instrument panel and door trim. Riding on 20s, there’s a Red S liftgate badge and Black Chrysler wing badges with Velvet Red inserts. Safety features also get a boost and a 20-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system can drown out the screaming. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-chrysler-pacifica-red-s-edition/
Driven by cheaper fuel prices and a resurgent appetite for all things large, the truck segment is in the midst of a renaissance like never before: they’re bigger, smarter, more capable and increasingly luxurious with jaw dropping price tags. And this one is a real monster – the all-new GMC Sierra Heavy Duty.
The price of this truck starts at $57,700 and with options checks in at a healthy $77,155 so Professional Grade doesn’t come cheaply. But this is no doubt a very impressive ¾ ton pickup with off-road chops, huge presence and the trailering tech to match.
Let’s talk about Dodge for a minute. Their 5 vehicle lineup’s newest model is the Charger, last redesigned in…wait for it…2011! Now, that’s an insane amount of time to go between complete redesigns but Dodge could give a lesson to the rest of the industry as to how to pull off this magic trick with incredible results. Case in point the Durango; itself last redesigned for the 2011 model year yet amazingly fresh. And….I tell you what; there aren’t a lot of FCA products I’m clamoring over right now but the Durango SRT has looked father time in the face and said catch me if you can. 2019 Dodge Durango SRT 392 https://testdrivenow.com/2019-dodge-durango-srt/
