QOTD: The Greatest Generation?

The hazy year of 1981 brought the world many things, among them, yours truly. It was also a year that sent bullets flying through the air towards several world figures; a year that saw interest rates soar to new heights (while horsepower values fell to dismal lows), and brought what was arguably the last year […] The post QOTD: The Greatest Generation? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ford Follows GM’s Financing Lead, but Not Entirely

We told you earlier this week how the month of June brought changes to General Motors’ pandemic-era financing offers. No longer is the automaker tempting buyers with zero-percent, 84-month loans on nearly everything in its lineup. Over at Ford, it seems the same strategy is underway… with one very notable exception.

2021 Ford F-150 Looks to Avoid Enemies

Given that domestic full-size pickups generate more money for their respective builders than a war bonds drive, every redesign is fraught with danger.
