  • 2015 F-150 will offer snow plow package

    Using pickup trucks for heavy-duty tasks is nothing new. While HD and Super-Duty vehicles are generally used in these situations, they could have to make some room on the road, as a new announcement from Ford has many wintertime drivers eyeing the possibility of employing the standard F-150 for all their snow-removal needs. 

    Ford recently announced that its upcoming introduction, the 2015 F-150, would be available with a special snow-plow package. This option would make the F-150 the only half-ton pickup in the U.S. with the ability to have a snow plow attached. 

    Snow is no obstacle
    Installing a snow plow on a Ford truck is a familiar practice, thanks in large part to the capabilities offered by the brand's pickups. While off-road driving may still be the No. 1 activity in one of these half-ton trucks, clearing snow may soon be a popular choice, especially since the F-150 will be better suited to plow the powder than any of its predecessors. 

    "The new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, we've made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter. This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what you'd want for plowing," said Eric Peterson, the marketing manager for the F-150. "Adding a snow plow prep kit to our lineup helps ensure our customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done."

    Catering to a driver's every need 
    Although adding a snow plow to the front of a vehicle may be low on the list of your desired truck modifications, it is just the tip of the iceberg for the 2015 F-150. With Ford officials touting the new and improved frame of the automobile, as well as the diverse array of alterations available to drivers who want to customize their rides, future buyers of the pickup could find that their options are endless. 

    The snow-plow package will be available in three different trims, giving drivers some flexibility in their purchase. All of these options come with the right equipment to install the gear on the front of the truck. Winter may be coming to an end, but with this new F-150 not expected out for several months, purchases could be made right as drivers are beginning to turn their attention to the next cold season. 

  • New Nissan Frontier concept shows off diesel power

    The Chicago Auto Show is in full swing, but Nissan may have already stole the spotlight for good. Nissan debuted an all-new concept at the event, showing off a diesel-powered vehicle that came across as a result of a partnership between the automaker and Cummins. Together, the companies created the concept for the Frontier Diesel Runner, which could be just the product needed to get Nissan back in the off-roading game in a big way. 

    About the Nissan-Cummins partnership
    At the heart of the new concept is a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel engine. This alternative power source could upgrade the capabilities of the Frontier and make it better suited for off-road driving, not to mention giving it an environmentally friendly advantage. 

    "We've been building pickup trucks in the U.S. for more than 30 years and selling them here for even longer than that, even offering four-cylinder diesel in our U.S. pickup truck in the 1980s," said Pierre Loing, a vice president of product planning at Nissan. "With this Frontier Diesel Runner project truck, we can reflect on our extensive heritage while also looking to the future and the changing demands of midsize pickup buyers.  

    The concept doesn't feature many truck modifications, and the ones included have been carefully selected to show off the engine. For example, the hood has a transparent insert, and the rest of the exterior is painted with glossy red and matte silver to match the motor. Even the interior features the same color scheme, tying the whole appearance together nicely. 

    Advancing the midsize segment
    While other trucks have used Cummins and diesel engines in the past, Nissan is one of the first brands to incorporate the capability in the midsize segment. This concept was intended to test the waters of the market and see if there is enough interest in midsize pickups to warrant an alternative diesel option. 

    "Nissan has always valued the midsize pickup segment, and with the technical study project, we are looking to explore what is possible for the next-generation Frontier. We are always looking for ways to engage our customers, innovate and take the segment in an evolutionary direction," said Fred Diaz, a senior vice president at Nissan North America. 

    Any mass production of the vehicle is still several years away, but with the Frontier due for a makeover anyway, any alterations made to accommodate the new engine would be welcome, AutoBlog reported.
