July 19, 2019 – Ford of Canada’s F-Series has been the top-selling pickup truck in the country for 53 years—and even the top-selling vehicle overall for the past nine years. Over the past few generations of the series, Ford has invested in EcoBoost turbocharged engines when the norm was powerful V-8s, military-grade aluminum bodies when the norm was steel and a plethora of safety and convenience features usually only seen on luxury vehicles. And for the 2018 and now 2019 model years, a 3-L Power Stroke V-6 diesel engine was added to the light-duty F-150 truck.

May 24, 2019 - When Mercedes-Benz entered the Canadian market with the second-generation Sprinter in 2010 (it was previously sold here as a Dodge), the full-size cargo van market was vastly different than it is today.

March 4, 2019 – When Dodge originally introduced the Ram brand, it was one of the first pickup trucks to feature a ‘semi’ style front end—but that is now the norm, with other 2019 trucks featuring massive grilles, too. So, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has reinvented both the front end and the grille for its 2019 model year on the Ram 1500.
February 20, 2019 - For years, when a standard pickup truck was sold as an off-road model, that mainly meant some cosmetic changes, rugged tires and the like. Fortunately, for those who actually need to take their work vehicles off-road, that is no longer the case. Most OEMs that produce trucks are now offering dedicated off-road models—and General Motors (GM) is no exception.
