The 2010 Ford F-150 is an award winning truck in its full-size pick up class. The 2010 Ford F-150 was designed with the consumer in mind. The real truck aficionados spoke and Ford listened. The truck comes loaded with features that meet every need. The exterior of the 2010 Ford F-150 comes with very useful storage areas as well as side steps and tailgate steps making the cab that much more accessible. The interior of the cab is very useful for the average driver as well as the driver that uses the truck for work. There are storages for hanging file folders, as well as Wi-Fi. Another great feature for drivers who use the Ford F-150 primarily for work is that you will be able to print invoices for your customers if the need arises.

The Chevrolet Colorado was among the first of a new generation of larger compact pickups when it was introduced as a 2004 model and all but Ford followed quickly on its heals. In fact, we don’t even call them compact pickups anymore. Now they’re called midsize pickups.
Colorado was designed to offer improved comfort and maybe replace the family sedan in the process. Colorado favors roominess, ride comfort and fuel efficiency over traditional truck virtues such as payload and towing capacity. That’s a strong selling point because compact trucks are increasingly bought as alternatives to cars, and their owners want more hip room, leg room and head room. Most are willing to sacrifice bed length for cab room. Sales of Regular Cab trucks, which typically offered the longest beds, are way down (although Colorado is one of the few to still offer this variation). The Extended Cab has largely replaced the Regular Cab as the truck for serious haulers, many of whom like being able to stash gear, tools, luggage, or groceries behind the seats. Crew Cabs are exploding in popularity because they offer the convenience of a comfortable back seat for family and friends. Their short bed lengths are an acceptable compromise for many buyers. But don’t get us wrong: The Colorado isn’t a car with a bed.
In fact, the Colorado provides all the trucking capacity most owners will ever use. It has a six-foot bed with Regular and Extended Cabs, and a five-foot bed on Crew Cabs. A properly equipped Colorado is rated to tow 4,000 pounds, enough for transporting ATVs, dirt bikes, personal watercraft, bass boats, and small camping trailers. In most configurations, the Colorado can carry more weight in the bed than the old S10 could. So it’ll get the job done.
On the whole, we think the trade-offs have paid off. Colorado rides smoothly and feels refined. Order the five-cylinder engine and it accelerates smartly. (That’s right: five-cylinder.) The Crew Cab features a roomy back seat that’s surprisingly comfortable and not bolt-upright. Yet the Colorado fits into tight parking spaces, something that can’t be said of full-size pickups. Like all the trucks in this category, the Colorado is substantially smaller and more maneuverable than full-size pickups such as the Dodge Ram or Chevy Silverado.
And Colorado offers something its competitors have forgotten, and that’s a utilitarian Regular Cab work truck. In fact, about a hundred permutations are available, giving buyers lots of choices to fit their needs.
The number of trim levels has been expanded for 2006, although little else is actually new. The cloth upholstery for the new high-level LT model has been upgraded, and a new option package that combines the sunroof with a six-disc CD changer is available.
The new Taurus SHO gets twin turbos, AWD, a steering wheel mounted paddle shifter, and interior luxury out the wazoo! Reverse cameras, heated/cooled/massaging front seats, heated rear seats, multi-zone climate control, and large 19″ – 20″ wheels are just some of the features and options. Engine specs are 365HP and 350lb-ft via Ford`s “ecoBoost” twin-turbo V6. It will be mated to a FWD biased AWD 6 speed transmission. The new Ford Taurus SHO will debut at your local Ford dealership by mid June with an MSRP around $37K – $38K.
