I drove the Ford Ranger and the Chevy Colorado to see which midsize pickup truck was better — and the winner was clear (F, GM)

The Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado are the two biggest competitors from the major pickup-truck makers in the US. I've tested three Colorado trucks in different trims and one all-new Ford Ranger. The Colorado truck eked out a win this time over the Ranger, but the truth is that both pickups are outstanding. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The Ford versus Chevy rivalry is a familiar one to pickup-truck customers. In the full-size segment, the mighty F-150 has been the bestse...

Ford Again Shifts Into Recall Mode, Citing Rollaway Risk

Recalls to prevent cars from rolling away from their owners have become commonplace, and Ford is no stranger to the phenomenon.

UPDATE 1-Ford recalling 273,000 vehicles in North America that could roll away

Ford Motor Co is recalling nearly 273,000 Ford Fusion and Ranger pickup trucks in North America that could roll away if the gear is not in "park" mode, the second largest U.S. automaker said on Wednesday. The recall covers 270,000 Fusion cars from model years 2013 through 2016 which have a shifter cable that may detach from the transmission, allowing a driver to remove the ignition key when the vehicle is not in "park." Nearly 2,800 2019 model year Ford Ranger trucks in North America have a sim...

Ten Things I Learned Working In A Gun Store

I have two comments about this. First, it isn’t really completely accurate to say that the Springfield Armory pistols (XD, XDm, etc.) are made in Croatia.  It would be more accurate to say that the parts were fabricated in Croatia and the gun was assembled in America.  But whatever.  And the HS2000 bears as much similarity to the modern XDs and XDms as Ford Ranger does to a F150. Second, I would question his brief assessment that more Taurus pistols are being sold and virtually none are coming b...

Fuelin’ Around: Ford Facing Legal Fracas Over Efficiency Claims

The new Ford Ranger only went on sale in January, but the midsize pickup is already the focus of a class-action lawsuit.
